About ten years ago, he gradually faded out of political talk shows, and turned to reading more books in the field of culture and art. Recently, he has been visiting art galleries and serving as a curator. He has also published book reviews on the classical literature "A Dream of Red Mansions" and "Jin Ping Mei". From a "political celebrity" Cai Shiping, she transformed into a "literary writer" Cai Shiping, opening up a new work track. 2020-08-14-1597397269 Photo Credit: Courtesy of Deer Publishing In recent years, Cai Shiping has published two special books, "The Heart of the Red Chamber" and "The True Color of the Golden Vase", and has a lot of experience in studying classical literature.
In addition, he developed the habit of telemarketing list running from middle school and practiced marathon more diligently after middle age. So far, he has participated in nearly ten marathon events. In the second half of 2020, I signed up for five full-marathon races in one go, running from Wulai Canyon to Green Island. Running is not only good for his health, but also brings him new opportunities for cooperation. "I believe someone will soon come to me to endorse nutritional supplements for osteoporosis!" he laughed. When a man is old, he is most afraid of having no interest or friends. Cai Shiping and a group of friends who love to drink formed the "Whiskey Brotherhood".
Everyone takes turns to host a wine tasting party once a month. Starting with two or three people, there have been more than twenty members in nine years. Some of them understand red wine, and some are familiar with sake. Friends drink to gain knowledge, but also to express the voice of men. At the end of each year, they each ask their wives for leave and fly to Tokyo for a drinking inspection. Drink from morning till night, never get drunk! "There is only one thing to focus on in life, and it's easy to come to an end." Cai Shiping said. A lover of literature, he came up with an interesting analogy: the vast majority of tragic stories are set up in closed contexts.
