Go! Pick Waxberry!

Waxberry is one of the oldest fruits native to China. China accounts for nearly half of the world's waxberry family. Every year from May to July is the harvest season for waxberrys.


We set out to pick waxberrys on June 19th. It was raining on the day of picking, the ground was a bit muddy and slippery, some people even fell on the hillside but still could not resist the enthusiasm of picking waxberrys. The sweet and sour taste of the waxberrys could offset all the bad weather.


These two days coincide with the 30th birthday of two employees in Vector Optics. In the evening, we sing and play games to celebrate their birthday, under the birthday atmosphere its so easy to get in on the fun.
