太久




好久没写格文。

有人说

现在不流行部落格。

没有人有心思看一整篇的长篇大论。。。

现在流行的是 微薄,twitter, tumblr, facebook 。。。。etc etc

哈~ 以上的我每个都有,可是没有一个有心思打理。也许在facebook 还比较活跃点。

maybe i m overwhelmed by the choice of media or simply overwhelmed by life. =)

Happy Vesak



"Fair goes the dancing when the Sitar is tuned,
Tune us the Sitar neither low nor high,
And we will dance away the hearts of men.
The string overstretched breaks, the music dies,
The string overslack is dumb and the music dies,
Tune us the Sitar neither low nor high."

A beautiful quote from Buddha about walking the middle path.
Happy Vesak =)

有些盲目是种相信,另一种是赌注。很久没有在唱片行大开“杀戒”
的必要。
这次纯粹冲动。
Hanjin & Sam Rockwell 是blind faint。倪安東是偶然的一首歌感动。
我好奇他专辑的素质。

追思



想为远在加拿大的一位朋友点亮一盏烛光。我们之间的时差12小时,今天是她的葬礼。虽然只是泛泛之交,还是为她惋惜。也许是年龄相仿,特别有感触,也许更为老大伤心因为她和这位侄女很谈的来。对她最深刻的记忆,是她从斯里兰卡当义工回来给我们看的相簿。纯手功的相簿,漂亮的山脉,穿着红色sari的女人们还有她的精彩游记。

每个出现在我们身边的朋友和过客,都是我们的老师。好的榜样,就要学习。不好的,切记不要重复。这是老法师说的

想 谢谢她,因为她的突然逝去更加drive home the point that life is too full of uncertainty. 她走的那晚,我正在想着何为人生的意义。( 早上有人问我) 当然意义就是好好的过每一天,在有限的人生里好好的,尽力的过每一天。而那晚我正在浪费时间,躜牛角尖。星期一的一封信,让我醒了。Life is too short to be upset and unhappy.


谢谢你,一路走好。

分享信里的一段 。。。our lives here are transient… stay kind and love
always.

有人在看吗 ?

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal...... A quote I heard early in the morning.

在Facebook和远在日本的堂姐和朋友联络上。还好大家都没事。

朋友第一时间在他的statue 写着
“ mega earthquake just ocured. hope everyone is safe!
i'm safe, waiting for power supply to return and clearance to get into building. i love you all. thanks for your concern. ”

看了之后心里纠了一下。一个从来都是外表冷静不把情绪挂在嘴边的人,竟然对大家说我爱你们。当时,当下地震发生时的震撼一定很大吧。

Stay calm and drink tea



Unexpected things has been happening around my close relation that I felt a sense of helplessness. It was one after another. I hardly has a moment to catch my breath.

Maybe.... just maybe we have all reached that age where the inevitable happens.

I was remembering a wise teacher once said in his talk : "... ... and this too will pass... ..." I always find comfort in this sentence. It a wisdom I am trying to master. I was googling this phrase and chanced upon this blogpost that wrote about the same thing and the story behind the phrase.

I particularly like his afterthought.

The author was kind enough to let me share this post over here.

Extract from www.aussiepete.com

[ This too will pass ] Once a King called upon all of his wise men and asked them, "Is there a mantra or suggestion which works in every situation, in every circumstance, in every place and in every time. Something which can help me when none of you is available to advise me. Tell me is there any mantra?" All the wise men got puzzled by King's question. One answer for all questions? Something that works everywhere, in every situation? In every joy, every sorrow, every defeat and every victory? They thought and thought.

After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something which appealed to all of them. They went to the king and gave him something written on paper. But the condition was that the king was not to see it out of curiosity. Only in extreme danger, when the King finds himself alone and there seems to be no way out, only then will he be allowed to see it. The King put the paper under his Diamond ring.

After a few days, the neighbors attacked the Kingdom. It was a collective surprise attack of the King's enemies. The king and his army fought bravely but lost the battle. The King was forced to flee on his horse. The enemies were following him. His horse took him far away in the Jungle. He could hear many troops of horses following him and the noise was coming closer and closer. Suddenly the King found himself standing at the end of the road - that road was not going anywhere. Underneath there was a rocky valley a thousand feet deep. If he jumped into it, he would be finished. He could not return the way he came, because it was a small, narrow road. The sound of the enemy's horses was approaching fast. The King became restless. There seemed to be no way out of thi situation.

Then suddenly he saw the Diamond in his ring shining in the sun, and he remembered the message hidden in the ring. He opened the diamond and read the message. The message was very small but very great. The message was – "This too will pass."

The King read it. He read it again. Suddenly something struck him- Yes! It too will pass. Only a few days ago, I was enjoying my kingdom. I was the mightiest of all the Kings. Yet today, the Kingdom and all its pleasures have gone. I am here trying to escape from enemies. However, if those days of luxuries have gone, this day of danger too will pass. Calm come on his face.

He kept standing there. The place where he was standing was full of natural beauty. He had never known that such a beautiful place was also a part of his Kingdom. The revelation of the message had a great effect on him. He relaxed and forgot about those following him.

After a few minutes he realized that the noise of the horses and the enemy was receding. They had moved into some other part of the mountains and were no longer on the same path. The King was very brave. He reorganized his army and fought again. He defeated the enemy and regained his lost empire.

When he returned to his empire after victory, he was received with much fan fare at the door. The whole capital was rejoicing in the victory. Everyone was in a festive mood. Flowers were being thrown on the King from every house, from every corner.
People were dancing and singing. For a moment, the King said to himself, "I am one of the bravest and greatest Kings ever!! It is not easy to defeat me!!"

With all the reception and celebration he saw an ego emerging inside himself.
Suddenly the Diamond of his ring flashed in the sunlight and reminded him of the message. He opened it and read it again: "This too will pass"

The King became silent. His face went through a total change - from the egoist he transformes to a state of utter humbleness.

If this too is going to pass, it is not yours. The defeat was not yours, the victory is not yours. You are just a watcher. Everything passes by. We are witness of all this. We are the perceiver. Life comes and goes. Happiness comes and goes. Sorrow comes and goes.

Now as you have read this story, just sit silently and evaluate your own life.. Think of the moments of joy and victory in your life. Think of the moment of Sorrow and defeat. Are they permanent? They all come and pass away. Life just passes away. There were friends in the past. They have gone. There are friends today. They too will go. There will be new friends tomorrow. They too will go. There were enemies in the past. They have gone. There may be enemies in the present. They too will go. There will be new enemies tomorrow and... they too will go.

There is nothing permanent in this world. Every thing changes except the law of change. Think over it from your own perspective. You have seen all the changes. You have survived all setbacks, all defeats and all sorrows. All have passed away. If there are problems in the present, they too will pass away. Because nothing remains forever. Joy and sorrow are the two faces of the same coin. They both will pass away.

Who are you in reality? Know your real face. Your face is not your true face. It will change with the time. However, there is something in you, which will not change. It will remain unchanged. What is that unchangeable? - It is nothing but your true self. You are just a witness of change.

朋友们的聚会

这一桌一锅的火锅料理是我自己一个人准备的。
从巴刹买菜到做汤底和备菜都是自己来。
朋友们的评价也很不错呢。^^

还挺有满足感的。我想我可以当个火锅达人。哈~
不好意思,有点得意忘形。





Homemade cherry beer cocktail......
一小点酒精可以助兴,
这是我的party必备的welcome drink。^^

辣子牛奶





喝过加了辣椒粉的牛奶吗?This is what i called a "hot" glass of milk . ^^

今天在 [Prolgue] 的 JAMS Precious Treats喝茶。朋友点了杯 “辣子牛奶” ,喝了半杯就不喝了。我就把剩下的完全喝完。(贪吃鬼。。。)

怎么形容这杯牛奶呢?

牛奶加了巧克力块,融化了之后有点像在喝美禄。甜的,辣味是最后才尝到的味道。有点辣,那个味道有点像我在快熟汤面里加cheeze 和辣椒粉的感觉。喝完之后,肚子好象有点“搅”。不过,那可能是之前的大餐在做怪。

Verdict 是 : 我应该不会自己点来喝。哈~~感觉很怪。还是传统咖啡好点。

我最近迷上了微博,在那里安了家。有空来找我。^^

无常





30 January at 00:04 -- -面簿
人生很无常,我了解。可是来的时候还是让人措手不及。不久才见过的人,怎么说走就走了。最近常挂在嘴边的,要懂得惜福,要懂得珍惜眼前人。不是每次都有另一个明天。想起某人说的 --与其感叹我们的年华老去,不如好好感恩可以一天一天的变老。因为那不是个理所当然。


这个兔年其实过得很百感交集。

当大家正在倒数兔年来临的最后几天,一位很疼我的长辈因为心脏病而辞世。很突然,没有预兆。在他离开后的几天里,一直下着大雨,感觉就很凄凉。他留下了他相依为命的妻子,来不及交代。

想说的是,这也许是个机会教育。身体出状况,就要快快就医。不要不说,要听人劝。
不要顽固。

也许也因为他的逝世,今年的家庭聚会有了更深层的意义。可以感觉到大家更珍惜在一起的时光。因为没什么是理所当然的。在我们的大家族里,绝对不会想到他是先走的。

人生的无常,今年特别有领悟。

送他的最后一程,我们跟在他车尾。电台播着
[千里之外]
知道这是首情歌,可是还是觉得歌词在那个时间很对时。

屋檐如悬崖风铃如沧海我等燕归来
时间被安排演一场意外你悄然走开
故事在城外浓雾散不开看不清对白
你听不出来风声不存在是我在感慨

梦醒来是谁在窗台把结局打开
那薄如蝉翼的未来经不起谁来拆
我送你离开千里之外你无声黑白
沉默年代或许不该太遥远的相爱
我送你离开天涯之外你是否还在
琴声何来生死难猜用一生去等待

风信子与比翼鸟



星期六买的风信子。
今天再看它,花蕾都长出来了。
才不一会儿工夫。

等着它散发如茉莉般的香气。=)

后面那几幅画是去年画的。

本来想当新婚礼物送出,
可惜觉得它不成气候就把它占为己有了。

其实也不错的,为单调的房间增加了少许颜色。
看见吗,后面有对比翼鸟。

照片加工过,最近迷上了这一种色系。

有很多想写,
可是累了写不下去。

怎么又快12点了

我是江洋大盗!!!





最近逛书局的时候,常常看到三毛的再版书籍。原来是为纪念三毛去世20周年。忍不住买了《撒哈拉的故事》。

我拥有一本应该是第二版的《稻草人手记》1978年(右)。是小六的时候,华文老师借我看的。记得那一年我常常往图书馆跑,只为了借三毛的书籍。而当时的国家图书馆就拥好多本三毛的初版。《撒哈拉的故事》1976年版,很漂亮。就这样,我在12,13 岁时已经读完了三毛所有的书。我常想,我的人生观也许或多或少被三毛影响不少吧。

小时候告诉自己,长大了我要把三毛的书籍一一珍藏。不过随着年级慢慢增长,反而开始觉得并没有那种必要了。也许我是觉得那些绝版的设计还是最好的。

回头想想,为什么那本书还在我手上?我不很清楚。也许小时候不懂事,想把它占为己有吧。老师也从来没和我要过,后来又借了我《夢裡花落知多少》。。。。。在一次同学聚会时听说他已经不在人世了。。。对这位老师总是带点愧疚的。从来没好好谢谢过他。

每次翻《稻草人手记》,总是会想起你,蔡老师。

Secret Garden




Has been addicted to this korean drama recently. It has been a while since my last addiction. ha ~~and it has provided my " escape from reality " antidote for the whole of the moody December.

Thanks to internet, I have been catching it simultaneously with the Koreans. ( maybe 2 -4 days delays) -- -- -- - Sweet anticipation =)

For the review, do check out Dramabeans. They do a particular good job in deconstructing and reviewing the drama episode by episode. All I can say is
good acting and beautiful soundtrack ( well... most korean ost is good la ).

The drama is drawing to a close and I find myself wishing for a happy ending, especially after a very sad episode 17 today.


One thing I learn from the korean drama / movie, they never play by the ball. That's one thing I like about Korean script. You are never quite sure how the ending will be until the very end of the show.



Finger crossed.

CIIE Fish







Happy New Year =)

A few of my friends decided to have a new year gift exchange and we were supposed to draw lot and D.I.Y a brooch for the person we have selected. The zipper rose was for the one I have selected and the fish was a little appreciation gift for the organizer. =)

I like the idea of hand making a brooch. It a lot creative than just simply gift exchange. I have fun doing this exercise.

ps : I have shifted a section of my food blog to this new site [ http://bbfoodjournal.blogspot.com ]
The latest Dongzhi 2010 is posted there as well.
