4-Minute Coffee with Uncle Reggie: An exotic riverside venture
与曾叔叔喝四分钟咖啡:一次奇异的河边历险记
(Jun Ju/Dixia Yang 翻譯)

A fascinatingly complex land… India is a land of thousands of religions, considered to be the most religious country in the world. It's often said that everyone in India has a religion, though not necessarily the same one. 一个令人着迷而又复杂的国度… 在印度数千种宗教并存,它是世界上宗教最多元化的国家。关于印度的宗教信仰,人们常说,印度每个人都有着宗教信仰,却往往不见得是同一个。 I've been to India only three times, but walking about India is really like seeing scenes from news documentaries. Masses…

6-Minute Coffee with Uncle Reggie: Storytelling
与曾叔叔喝六分钟咖啡:讲故事
(Antti/EM 翻譯)

Coffee Reggiegram : How reliable are storytellers? Do you like listening to them? 曾叔叔咖啡短短信:讲故事的人有多可靠? 你喜欢听人讲故事吗? Do you like real life stories? I love reading stories of real life experiences, since I feel “truth is stranger than fiction”. I’m also fascinated that real life stories depend heavily on memories, dug out from fantastically complex master computer files deep inside the skull.…

3-Minute Coffee with Uncle Reggie: 5-Star, minus 5-Star
与曾叔叔喝三分钟咖啡:五星级酒店,和负五星级酒店
(Emily Ma马欣怡/Dx 翻譯)

5-star, minus 5-star hotel... One night I might be staying at a swanky five-star hotel with immaculately clean bed sheets, with all kinds of free momentos of prettily bottled shampoos, hair conditioners, colorful fragrant soaps and comfortable guest slippers, most of which I often collected as souvenir gifts for young friends at my next stops in China. 五星级酒店与负五星级酒店... 有一晚我可能住在一个豪华的五星级酒店,床单一尘不染,提供各种免费小礼品,如漂亮的洗发水、护发素、香皂和舒适的拖鞋,其中大部分我常常收集作为礼物送给我在中国下一站的年轻朋友。 But…

2 Minute Coffee with Uncle Reggie: As One eyeball to another
与曾叔叔喝两分钟咖啡:眼球啊眼球
(Emily Xinyi Ma, Bo Yin/Dx 翻譯)

Head-gripping drama... I walked obediently down a dim hallway into a dark space. I stepped up into a large seat, facing a cold metal rack. I leaned into its scalloped frame perfected for my head and neck, in the fashion of A Tale of Two Cities. 扣人心弦的剧情……我顺从地走在昏暗的走廊上,进入一个黑暗的空间。 我走到一个大座位上,眼前有一个冰冷的金属架子。 我把身体前倾,头颈贴靠在扇形的金属架上,那架子的形状和我头颈部的形状相当吻合,像是量身定做的,一派双城记的风格。 Abruptly following me into the blackened space was a masked tall…

3-Minute Coffee with UR: What head shape would you like:
flat, long or pointy?
与曾叔叔喝三分钟咖啡:你想要什么头型:平的、长的,还是尖的? (Sonic翻譯)

“Long heads.” When I see an adult with a long head shape that is flattened on both sides, I instantly recognize that this person likely used to be a premature baby. When babies are premature, their skull is relatively soft so it's easier to mold or distort its shape. I recognize them, because (as a neonatologist), those were “my babies”…

Uncle Reggie Story : URS: Egg and I
与曾叔叔讲故事:鸡蛋与我 (Andy/sm 翻譯)

I just saw an old, old movie, “The Egg and I,” and it provoked a huge number of disparate thoughts in my mind, since eggs and I have had a special relationship from childhood. 我刚看了一部很老的电影《鸡蛋与我》,它在我脑海中激起了大量截然不同的想法,因为我从小的时候起就一直跟鸡蛋有很特殊的关系。 You know how people do strange things when they go to college because suddenly they have a lot more freedom. I was intrigued in college…

4-Minute Coffee with UR: Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Thailand,
“All the world’s a stage
与曾叔叔4分钟漫谈:哥斯达黎加,香港,泰国,“整个世界就是一个舞台
(Sonic翻譯)

All sidewalks are a stage... We got ready on a sidewalk in Costa Rica. Every actor had his/her costume on. There was a 10-second stillness while we moved ourselves and the boomboxes into position. Passers-by stopped. The crowd got bigger and bigger as we started the music. Curiosity got the better of the audience. They were all intent on watching…
