What is vibe?  When we were young, we danced in the disco hall with dazzling, swirling neon lights above the head and shoulders, loud music on, with that tempo, busy twisting feet tip tap stepping on the floor, dancers knocking to each other, we think that was great vibe.

In Australia, in a background of desert, in the vastness of great yellow and red brimmed with sand, rock, and grass, a band standing across the space between you and the desert, the power of beat of the rock music and the vibration of the earth seem alike immersed, which creates “vibe”, the name of the band or the definition of such a space.

In China, in the smoke of hot dishes, large bowls with open demonstration of spicy food, red and green chillies; hot oil drizzled into the white fish; grilled hot stone plate with sizzling shrimps or slices of meat, together the sensational color, smell and taste give great satisfaction to the senses of food lovers.  Chinese food are daily salvation.  Food is God in China.  

The result is the day to day oily lips and rounded stomach.  Especially for aged retired people, they may lessen their appetite by choosing light dishes, they choose to have a light walk after the dinner.  When nightfall comes, flashes of light casting on the river, low flying birds swiftly catching food in the high wind, couples or solo walker all get their evening out a routine health work-out or rather say walk-out.  No matter it is getting dark, their spirits are high, arms up, steps wide.  People say group dancing in square is a typical modern feature of China.  Chinese are getting this kind of vibe by grouping together, costumed in a similar fashion, following a well designed dancing patterns with a traditional type of folk music or popular songs.
