It is quite popular to spend the weekend in the countryside near a big city recent days. The essence is to pursue being in a new environment, far from anxiety in reality. But once the novelty has passed, no matter where he is, topic of health, education, work, and wealth will drown him again. Of course, love and marriage are the hottest topic that have been our confusion or pain for thousands of years.
The 4 meters (13 ft) high and 3.8 (12 ft) meters wide entire structure of the shrine was weaved with a continuous line of carbon-fiber, density is controlled at 18KG per cubic meter and the bearing capacity of 400kg is achieved. After a month of testing, using 7200 meters of continuous carbon fiber bundles, the red Shrine of Whatslove was completed in 90 hours. Yes, Shrine of Whatslove is not the same as the carbon-fiber pavilion you used to see. It has floor slabs that can carry at least 4 people and can be overhanged so that the shrine seems floating in the air.
