贵族(第一篇)

The Love of Sand

循众要求(其实是循某人要求),写了这篇心得,哈哈... 二十多岁了,学老人家话斋,好命的都已做了孩子的爸妈啦,哈哈...根据众多身边的朋友的经验之谈,集合了本世纪到了适婚年龄却还是单身贵族的种种原因。
1a)不是俊男美女:如果你说你不是看外表的,那可是骗人的啦,不然哪会有那么多‘一见钟情’呢?要是不靓仔,也要高大威猛,或有型。要是不靓女,也要有气质,或是可爱的。要是都没有,也至少要靠后天补救,打扮一下嘛。如果你都没有,那么就比较难啦。
1b)你是俊男美女:太多人追了,所以要求也变高了,以致觉得会有更好,更配得上你的人将会出现。可是其实这也是大多数人对俊男美女们的误解,因为发现有些其实是没有人追的,怕追不起?又或者别人都觉得很没有安全感,因为你有太多爱慕者了。
2a)你太高调了:你的话太多,只要有你在的地方,就听得到你的声音,嘴巴几乎不用休息的,根本就没有半点要聆听对方的意思。
2b)你太低调了:根本就没有人会发觉你的存在,因为你太静了,几乎可以说是隐形的。
3a) 异性缘太好:很多异性朋友,可是都被当成‘姐妹'(如果你是男的)或‘兄弟’(如果你是女的)。
3b)没有异性缘:跟异性好像是绝缘体般,或者不会与异性沟通的方式,不会适时放电。朋友多得是,可是都是同性的。
4a)吊儿郎当的男人:从来没有为自己的生活好好规划过,漫无目标的过日子,不能给对方安全感。
4b)学历太高/女强人:这个应该是比较适用于女人的吧,男人都会觉得你高高在上,虽然女人根本没那么想过。
5)你不是有钱人:太多人向‘钱’看了。你看,多少女明星嫁给比她们老一大截的男人,而他们都有一个共同点,就是家财万贯。或者你根本不想在没有经济能力之前谈恋爱,不相信有情饮水饱这个道理。
6)timing不对:要集合天时地利人和可不是那么简单的。地球上两个人能相遇就已经不容易,相遇了要有机会认识对方,认识了又要有机会了解彼此,觉得适合了又要有机会告诉对方,告诉了对方又要有机会开始。总之就是要靠timing啦,不然就有缘无份啦。
7) 搭错线:A喜欢B,B喜欢C,C喜欢D,D却喜欢A,总之就是乱到完啦。 歌都有得唱啦-我爱的人不是我的爱人~。

好了,暂时写到这里为止,有觉得哪一个原因好像在说着你吗?哈哈... 其实还有很多原因,下次再写吧。

Breathing...

We tend to take things for granted. Every moment we're breathing in and out and we aren't really aware of it because it's just so easy for us. However, seeing people having difficulty in breathing, gasping for breath, breathing through oxygen mask reminds me of how lucky one is, when breathing is just a simple action done every moment without much or even a slight awareness of it...

Unexpectedly...



Things just always happen unexpectedly. Life is full of surprises. Sometimes there are things that u'd never want it to happen to u but somehow it happens and these uncertainties are so beautiful. Seeing how things happen to friends around me make me think of the last sentence of this paragraph from one of my favourite books by 几米(向左走向右走)。
They're both convinced that a sudden passion joined them.
Such certainty is beautiful,but uncertainty is more beautiful still.
他们彼此深信是瞬间迸发的热情让他们相遇。
这样的确定是美丽的,但变幻无常更为美丽
摘译自辛波丝卡(Wislawa Szymborska)"Love at First Sight"第一段

The Joy of Sharing

I shared my mum's homemade banana walnut cake with others in the BF gathering yesterday. In such a short time, only 1 piece or 2 was left. Although I did not eat much, but I felt happy because 1) I was proud of my mom's baking skill, hehe... 2) the feeling of sharing was great. It's true that the more you give, the more you get. Just by sharing some 'little' things with others can bring so much joy.

十分红

Yesterday I watched 十分红演唱会 broadcasted live by NTV7 n 2 of my favourite female artists were there - Penny Tai n Stephanie Sun. Penny was so cool, playing guitar, singing songs composed by herself. How I wish my skill in playing guitar will improve day by day(a beginner like me should seek help from someone 'professional', hehe...) I was especially touched when I watched Stephanie Sun singing 'What I Miss'(我怀念的), cos I could really feel that she's singing from deep inside her heart, just like telling a story of her own. I think a singer is considered successful when her songs touch people's heart. Well done, Yanzi, u're 1 of the great singers that touches my heart with uncountable great songs...

Winter Solstice

Today is Dong Zhi, which is an important festival of the Chinese calendar. I found out something about it from a website(Discover HongKong) and I particularly like the last 2 sentences of this paragraph:
It is celebrated on the longest night of the year, when sunshine is weakest and daylight is shortest. This celebration can be traced to the Chinese belief in yin and yang, which represents balance and harmony in life. It is believed that the yin qualities of darkness and cold are at their most powerful at this time, but it is also the turning point, giving way to the light and warmth of yang. For this reason, the Dong Zhi Festival is a time for optimism.
I'm glad that I'm home to celebrate this festival. We had a family reunion dinner yesterday(earlier), eating Tang Yuan together(although baby Ee Shuen can't eat Tang Yuan yet this year, hehe....)

改变.接受

The Dry Leaf

与其抬头看着一片片凋落的叶子而感叹,低头看着满地金黄色的落叶而感伤,不如敞开心扉欣赏秋天的美景,才会看到身边其实还有许多美好的事物值得让你感动的。
生活中有许多事情并不能如我们所愿的发生,一开始时总是难以接收。如果能改变当然要尝试改变它,可是如果已成了事实,唯有敞开心扉接受它吧。只不过每个人能达到那个'接受'的阶段所耗上的时间都不一样,有人要花上好几天,有人要花上好几年,有人可能永远也接受不了。看开一点吧,别再为了改变不了的事实而苦恼,生活中还有许多其他更值得我们花时间的事和物。
改变所能改变的,接受不能改变的。

红花.绿叶


红花宁愿自己是绿叶,因为红花喜欢与绿叶平起平坐,不想让绿叶觉得红花是与众不同的,只想绿叶把它当成平凡的红花。绿叶宁愿自己是红花,因为绿叶一直觉得红花是与众不同的,自己却好平凡,所以不能与红花平起平坐。可是它们可否知道,其实根本就没有什么特别或平凡之分,毕竟红花与绿叶都是一样的,平凡中带点特别,特别中又带点平凡。

最美的一面

得不到的,总是最美的。这么说,得不到,也未尝不是一件好事,至少可以保留那最美的一面,

灰姑娘?

已经好多次了,看到喜欢的鞋子,却没有适合自己的size。是因为自己的脚板太长了吧?哈哈。。。我穿10号鞋,可是也不是每一个brand的10号都适合我的,cutting小的就不行咯。所以当我买到自己喜欢,又穿得舒服的鞋子时,我会是多么的兴奋。我应该坚持只买自己喜欢的鞋子,还是该随便买一些不是真正喜欢的鞋子算了(只求有size),反正能穿就好了。那么是鞋选我(灰姑娘咩?),还是我选鞋呢?有点要求也没错吧。有时候就降低要求咯,可是还是没有我的size。为何啊?哈哈。。。习惯就好。

another haircut

I went for a haircut(again?). Since when I've started to get my hair cut(or trimmed actually) around every 2 months? If not mistaken it's during 2nd year, when I'd decided that I would only keep my hair at shoulder length, not too long and not too short. The feeling after a haircut is great because I feel 'lighter' as I feel like something that have been troubling me(三千丝烦恼) are being sent away(although it may just be temporary). People always get themselves burdened in all aspects of life eg. relationships, studies, career etc. As in Eason's song: 你的背包,让我走得好缓慢. That's why we have to learn to throw away the unnecessary burdens in our lives that cause our pace slow so that we can keep on walking and live our lives to the fullest. It's easier said than done, let's gambatte together!

Holiday~~~

Yeah, I'm having my holiday now after my Medicine n Society posting. Although it's only for 1 week, i'm glad that it is at the same time with the end sem holidays of my friends in local U. Hopefully I can meet as many friends as possible.

在丹绒加弄的最后一夜



还有几个小时就要离开这儿了,可是因为大部分华人已提早离开了,所以已没什么感觉了。今天的午餐,全部华人一起吃,当录影每个人最后的感言时,真的好舍不得。毕竟在这儿两个月了,大家的感情越来越好。度假般的生活,实在回味无穷,可说是第三学年目前为止最无忧无虑的快乐时光。我们这个posting的华人的团结精神可真的是有目共睹的,可说是前无古人,后无来者,9个男人+9个女人=一条心。共同美好的回忆有:一起做火锅,看萤火虫,庆生会,吃巴生肉骨茶,唱K,吃海鲜,办活动,去猴子山,看戏,打羽球,谈天说地,互相照顾的日子实在难忘。在这里书不用读多,觉也没睡得多,话却说得多,又吃得多,玩得尽兴,好吃好住,当然也越来越有重量啦,哈哈。。。又要回到白色巨塔了,心情难免有些沉重。不知道到时大家还有没有闲情逸致混在一起呢?无论如何,大家一起走过的日子是值得回忆的。谢谢俊男美女司机们让我们两餐温饱,让我们的生活多姿多彩。谢谢电脑高手让我们得以与外界透过互联网联系。谢谢与我有福同享,有难同当的好友们。好好享受假期吧,接着我们一起加油吧!

Bukit Melawati


After lunch, we had nothing to do so we went to Bukit Melawati. Yesterday only I mentioned in my blog that hopefully it would be 1 of our last activities involving all Chinese here, and it was realized today, so fast, haha...Actually there's nothing special about that place, except for the monkeys and 'da pao'. Anyway, at least we've been there, took some photos and had some fun with the monkeys. Those monkeys made me think of the monkeys at Kledang Hill near my house(the place I always climb up with my family).

Sunday

It's Sunday, but it's such a long and tiring day. Yesterday we held our program for Medicine and Society Posting(Program BMI Sihat). All of us are exhausted, but we're relieved that it finally came to an end. However, after that we'll be busy with surveys, reports and presentations before our posting ends next friday. What a busy week, what a way to end our posting here. After the program ended, we all Chinese went to Sekinchan to have dinner(imagine that 18 of us were wearing the same program T-shirt, going in the restaurant like going to 'pek yau', haha...). On our way home, we sang along to songs from the CD and the feeling was so great that we didn't felt like getting out of the car. Thus 5 of us decided to go out and relax first. The full moon tonight was so bright, thus we didn't get to see a lot of fireflies and the view was not so magnificent compared to the 1st time we saw it. Besides, we couldn't see any star tonight, as compared to last time it was a starry night. Anyway, 5 of us, sat in the sampan(and scared that the sampan would sink at the same time since it was designed to accommodate 4 persons 'ideally'), chat and spent some great time together. 5 days left before we leave Tanjong Karang, and we haven't visited another tourist attraction yet(Bukit Melawati), hopefully that will be one of our last activities here.

The colours of life

It's been a long time since I colour using crayon, maybe more than 10 years ago? I helped the colouring contest committee to colour the poster to attract children to participate in it and I felt like I was a child again. I remember last time I was sent to drawing and colouring lessons since I was small, learning how to use crayon and later water colour when I grew bigger. Besides that, I also learned piano from kindergarten till secondary school. Last time I did not appreciate these opportunities given by my parents that much because I was lazy to attend those classes during weekends. Besides, I thought that I was not so talented. However, I am grateful now because I had those chances to learn those skills. It makes my life more colourful. Thanks Daddy & Mummy =)

Helping each other...

The program will be on this Sunday. Everyone, especially the members of Group C is busy preparing for it. I as the Exco TTK or the so-called 打杂婆, besides doing my own job, I also helped other Excos esp. in wrapping the presents and hampers(with my limited skills, hehe...) as well as painting the banners. It's such a great feeling because we're helping each other although it's not our own job, even friends from other groups which are not directly involved in this program also lent a helping hand to us. When there're many of us doing something together, it proved that with teamwork, things were done fast. At the same time, we enjoyed the feeling of togetherness. I was especially touched when my friends helped my to do the backdrop till 4 a.m. today. Besides my exco partner and other AJKs, my special thanks go to my friends who helped me till the end. I was very touched and happy because they were so supportive. At first I was really sleepy, tired and hungry but with the determination to finish it no matter how before we sleep and most importantly with my friend's help, we finished doing the backdrop around 4 a.m. These few days I've been not getting enough sleep and having sore throat which turned into productive cough at the same time, but it's worth it because I know I've found friends who are always there for each other here. Once again, THANK YOU, u all are the best!

Facebook

Recently I hv 1 more website to keep in touch with my friends out there and it's Facebook.
I took a personality test(Wishabi wish assessment) in facebook n here's the result:
Your Wish Personality is:
Compassionate Carer
You value love and relationships .
People are your priority. You know that the key to happiness is in the people around you and your relationships with them. You may be spiritual, and you will find that investing your time and energy into friends and family will bring you happiness in life.
p/s: I think this test is accurate, hehe...

Cooking

Last weekend, finally I had a chance to do one of the things I like in Tanjung Karang, cooking meals for me n my frens, but only simple ones(粗茶淡饭/家常便饭). Hopefully they enjoy those simple dishes, so far they finished up all the dishes, so I supposed my cooking skill was acceptable, hehe... at least could be eaten and could fill up the stomach with no complications eg.stomachache, then should be ok, keke... I would like to thank my friends, because although I was the '主厨'(as what they called me), they all also helped a lot in doing the 'before-and-after' work(cutting vege, cooking rice, washing). Maybe it's something inherited from my mum, she also likes cooking and baking a lot and share the 'products' with others. Actually the joy of cooking is when you cook for others and share the food together, seeing others eating what you've cooked, with compliments or a simple 'thank you' from others at the end of the day. I remember last time when I told my friend that I felt like I'm not doing what I like(as what I would be in the future) and was so depressed, then here came the dialogue between us:SH: then what do u like to do?Me: I like dancing, cooking, baking, singing, playing musical instruments and sports but all these would not be my career because......SH: not everyone in this world has the chance to be what they want to be in their lives, but why don't you do something you like always to make yourself happier?It's true, if you have a chance to make your hobby your career, it would be so great because you are doing something you like everyday. Anyway, if you don't, just don't forget to take some time and do what you like in the midst of your busy life.

Remember vs Forget

I like this saying:

生命中,不断地有人离开或进入。于是,看见的,看不见的;记住的,遗忘了。生命中,不断地有得到和失落。于是,看不见的,看见了;遗忘的,记住了。然而,看不见的,是不是就等于不存在?记住的,是不是永远不会消失?

I like this flash, very touching: http://koshiyen.twbbs.org/~ifplab/dl/walktourC.swf

Sore Throat

Im having sore throat now. I supposed it's because I've been eating too much outside food. Yesterday lunch I ate char siew fan, after that I really didn't feel very well, maybe it's too salty n too much ajinomoto, felt so thirsty. No matter how much water I drank, I still felt bad. Then, I had this feeling that I would have sore throat. True enough, I'm having sore throat now. Hopefully this weekend I don't need to eat outside food, hope can clear of body of 'toxin' by this way. I want to eat food cooked by myself. I prefer the original taste of the food, people around me call it tasteless n some call it 'qing dan'(清淡). However for me, it's so original, natural, healthy, tasty, huhu... Long time no cook liao... I don't want sore throat cos I want to cheong-K in my room as an entertainment, hehe...

一个人的嘴巴,可以用来说好话,赞美一个人,也可以用来说坏话,破坏别人的形象。人言可畏,有些人总喜欢到处跟别人讲一个人的坏话,却不知道这样会伤害到当事人。尤其是根本错误的讯息,却到处跟人讲,搞到别人的生活不愉快,又有什么好处呢?大家都是成年人了,可以多说些赞美别人的话,诋毁别人的话则少说吧(如果做不到不说)。其实这是听到朋友诉苦时有感而发,所以就写下我的心情咯。嘴巴是长在自己的脸上,要说什么没有人能阻止,可是没必要对别人的生活造成困扰吧。算了吧,清者自清,只要自己对得起良心就好了。说话前用大脑分析一下吧,这个世界会更美好。

Lost

DSCN5273

I always get lost...when i fetched my sis to somewhere yesterday,i lost my way...can u imagine that i get lost in my own hometown that i've been staying for 20+ years?Those who know me well surely know that i always get lost,especially when i drive or even when i walk around somewhere that i should be familiar with.I think I'm not good at all in recognizing directions.However,it's just a matter of wasting time and energy or petrol if i get lost in daily life before i finally get to my destination, not to mention i also bring laughter to others.It's only a sad thing if u get lost in our life,when u don't know what is ur aim in life and keep on wandering in the wrong place, doing things that u may not like.Thats the time when u feel lost in life,just like a piece of wood floating in the middle of the sea,not sure where to head to and there's no island or beach in sight where u can stop by.It's so tiring.Im sure anyone who is reading this right now would have this similar feeling sometimes,just don't give up when u think that u get 'lost' in ur life.Everyone belongs to somewhere meant for them to be...Ur family and frens r always there to support n lead u when u r 'lost'...

KL-Ipoh

I'm a new member of PBSM since my 2nd year of university life in KL. Im sure many of u who r reading this right now know that PBSM stands for Persatuan Balik Setiap Minggu(not the Persatuan Bulan Sabit Merah which I joined in form6). Do u call it homesick? I dun think so, it’s just that going back to Ipoh has bcum one of the must-do things almost every weekend since my 2nd year started, but now I try to control myself bcos the need2save $, although it's cheap compared to others ady. This habit is partly influenced by my frens who r oso members of PBSM since 1st year, esp. those from KL/Selangor, who would go back their hometown every weekend. However, I din manage to do so bcos I was busy with some activities during 1st year. The main reason I go bk home is life is happier at home, where I can spend time with my beloved dad, mum, n sisters. That’s my ‘bi(4) feng(1) gang(3)’, where I feel true happiness and warmth. No matter how bad my mood is when I’m in KL, but every time when I go bk home I will forget abt it. Besides, if I stay in KL long enough, the probability of me getting malnourished is higher, n my goal to gain weight is more difficult to be achieved, hehe…my mum’s cooking is the best in the world, yummy! The journey back to Ipoh takes only 2 n a half hr, n I use it as my sleeping time, so I consider myself to be lucky bcos Ipoh is quite near to KL oso. Anyway, I think I’ll not be able to go home so often when I move to Cheras campus around May, life is busier there. Oh yeah, in case u dunno, I’m back at home again this weekend ;p
