Haven't Met You Yet- Michael Buble


Love this song a lot upon hearing it. It reminded me of those sweet moments spent with Myriam and Ann- maybe dancing, maybe singing like kids, or maybe dreaming. According to Andrew's standard, one who loves Michael Buble's music is only skin-deep. Whatever, this song made me so happy, and that means a lot!

If I haven't met you yet, then, when can I meet you? I so wanna know that :(

I'm Not Surprised
Not Everything Lasts
I've Broken My Heart So Many Times,
I Stop Keeping Track.
Talk Myself In
I Talk Myself Out
I Get All Worked Up
And Then I Let Myself Down.

I Tried So Very Hard Not To Loose It
I Came Up With A Million Excuses
I Thought I Thought Of Every Possibility

And I Know Someday That It'll All Turn Out
You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid That I'll Give So Much More Than I Get
I Just Haven't Met You Yet

Mmmmm ....

I Might Have To Wait
I'll Never Give Up
I Guess It's Half Timing
And The Other Half's Luck
Wherever You Are
Whenever It's Right
You Come Out Of Nowhere And Into My Life

And I Know That We Can Be So Amazing
And Baby Your Love Is Gonna Change Me
And Now I Can See Every Possibility

Mmmmm ......

And Somehow I Know That It Will All Turn Out
And You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid I'll Give So Much More Than I Get
I Just Haven't Met You Yet

They Say All's Fair
And In Love And War
But I Won't Need To Fight It
We'll Get It Right
And We'll Be United

And I Know That We Can Be So Amazing
And Being In Your Life Is Gonna Change Me
And Now I Can See Every Single Possibility

Mmmm .....

And Someday I Know It'll All Turn Out
And I'll Work To Work It Out
Promise You Kid I'll Give More Than I Get
Than I Get Than I Get Than I Get

Oh You Know It'll All Turn Out
And You'll Make Me Work So We Can Work To Work It Out
And I Promise You Kid To Give So Much More Than I Get
Yeah I Just Haven't Met You Yet

I Just Haven't Met You Yet
Oh Promise You Kid
To Give So Much More Than I Get

I Said Love Love Love Love Love Love Love .....
I Just Haven't Met You Yet
Love Love Love .....
I Just Haven't Met You Yet

Lessons Learned from Work

  • What makes a good boss? Point number one- RESPECT your employees and GIVE BACK the control over their own lives and time. When they listen to you and merely follow whatever you says, you are screwed, so does your business
  • Power of integration. When everyone is super duper busy working in a horribly inefficient way to get things done, there must be something wrong. FACE IT. FIX IT. How many million times can you get people exhausted and disappointed?
  • Where are all the talents? Why aren't they coming to you? Do you know there's a concept called employee satisfaction and influencer marketing?
  • Internal communications is not equal to internal brainwashing. Do the latter one too over will actually lead to external complain. And guess what? Who would care about the message once they're just too sick of it?
  • No one is perfect and devils are hidden in details. Feel free to apologize for the mistakes you made and try to correct it immediately. Additionally, strive to avoid the same mistake again. How come most "authorities" just cannot understand this?
  • Show me the evidences. Show numbers (not limited to $ only). Convince me with the latest trend/development but not only with your thousand-year experiences. Say, tell me how you sell your products online in 1980s?

SMS Read

I am your good friend forever.
Will always care about your job, life, and feeling...
Touched, and speechless.
Yeah, I know. I always know.

Reunion with Jen-Ai Fellows

Great that I still went out for it today, though I actually knew only one person, Jack, originally. Was surprised that people indeed remembered me and those interesting "history;" was pleased to find also my image from their eyes. So many times I was trying to convince people I am just an ordinary people, just exactly like you and those common persons you know. No, I am not a star. No, it wasn't my intention to be famous or even to be the show-off. I cared for those things you cared dearly as well, and I worried and frustrated as all of you would do. Additionally, I was, I am, and I'll always be accessible as those who've known me for a long time.

To be brief, I am merely another human being.

Thank you for being kind to me, and thanks for letting me know more about myself and my perceived image. On this rainy day, thanks to you all, it turned into a fruitful day for me :) Appreciated!

[轉錄]為了愛你的人,笑一個 ◎李鼎

伽利略一直笑,但這次沒有追著我們的車跑了!
追著我們的小孩依舊很多,但我的眼裡只有他站在門口的笑容。

2007年的1月,我在非洲馬拉威的一部白色轎車裡,車子行駛在這個國家唯一一條的公路上,四周是一望無際的非洲平原,平原上連一棵樹木都沒有。

我一直在想這世界會不會有一個地方,是什麼事情藏也藏不住,什麼都會被看穿,讓我逃都逃不了的地方?

好像就是這裡了!

這個好像太陽每天都要掉落在這片草原上的國家,好像什麼都會被陽光照得清清楚楚,就像現在,即使我的臉已經迴避著車內任何一個人,但那刺眼的落日,照出我眼眶滿滿的淚水,反射在窗玻璃上透亮的閃著,好像要對這片非洲草原發出最後閃亮的信號。

我再過六小時就要離開這個地方,我在過去的八十六個小時中,好像犯了一個天大的錯,但又好像做對了一件一輩子都不能忘的事!

我因為要拍攝一部捐助受飢兒的紀錄片,來到全世界評比為最窮的國家──馬拉威。這是一個每五分鐘就有孩童死於愛滋病的國家,也是一個能活過五歲就是奇蹟的孤兒世界。但這裡卻傳說是靈魂最富有的天堂,到馬拉威任何一個地方,都會有成群的孩子追著你的車子,跟你說:「謝謝!謝謝!」

但過去的八十六小時中,我犯了一個自以為是的錯。

我在那一群追著我們說謝謝的小孩中,發現了一個小男孩,他欲言又止的神情在我的鏡頭裡面安靜著。他在我們到他的部落拍攝時,做了一件很特別的事:還了我們一粒口香糖。他用會說的全部英語想跟我們說話,但我們一句都聽不懂。

我們的隨行司機佛列通立刻幫我們翻譯,原來他很認真的想跟我們說:「你給過我了,這是多的一粒,你可以親自給我另一個朋友嗎?」

就因為這一粒口香糖,我跟客戶提出了一個要求──可不可以帶這個小男孩跟我們一起在馬拉威旅行,用他的觀點來拍這部紀錄片,這個觀點可能會因為他的善良,而讓我們有所省思,讓我們從被捐贈者上,學會更多東西。

這個提議讓大家都高興不已,司機佛列通馬上打了那個男孩的頭一下,稱讚他很不賴,別的小朋友更是高興的為他歡呼。

男孩有一個科學家的名字,叫做伽利略,但他完全不知道世界上有這個科學家。

「你可以問你爸爸啊!」

這是我們犯的第一個錯。因為,伽利略是個孤兒。

不過伽利略並沒有因為回答這個問題而難過,反而是我們這些大人大驚小怪。佛列通也覺得我們大驚小怪,因為他也是一個孤兒。

奇怪的是我們,是我們可能會一不小心濫用了自己的同情,而讓別人覺得我們用一種高姿態的角度看人。

我跟客戶很期待這九十二個小時與佛列通及伽利略的相處,我一直認為「希望要在絕望的地方找」,因為最絕望的地方都還對什麼事保有希望,那可能就是一個「真」希望,若我們各有了一個十歲小男孩及二十五歲青年的觀點,我們真的有可能在全世界最窮的地方,拍到最富有的東西。

果然,隔天我們就拍到了伽利略難得的笑容。在孤兒院小孩的追逐下,伽利略告訴我們這些孩子有多高興,以及我的攝影機裡,除了在他們總統府贈送食物的經過,還拍到了哪些他想看見的救災英雄。

而伽利略也跟我一樣,同樣對車窗外的一切好奇。我會問,那路邊好大一片、有著一格一格上鎖的櫃子是什麼?佛列通告訴我們,那一格一格都是信箱,因為大家都出外工作,住的地方簡陋到連門牌號碼都沒有,所以那一格一格的郵政信箱,就是他們跟老家的人或是女友聯絡的唯一方式。但伽利略總有後續的問題,他用馬拉威話問佛列通,每次問到一個答案,伽利略就只是一聲「喔!」,然後望向窗外。

我趁伽利略不在的時候問佛列通,到底這小孩問了什麼?

伽利略問,為什麼路上的人走路那麼快,他們要去哪邊?是去上學嗎?

佛列通會告訴伽利略,因為不走快一點,就到不了他們要去的地方,他們也都是沒有車的,家都離學校很遠!

而我們也會問,為什麼草原那一邊都是菸草田?為什麼不種可以吃的稻米?為什麼大家都喝汽水,不喝礦泉水?

答案是,國外的人說種菸草可以賺錢,所以大家都種菸草,到最後,一堆菸草賣不出去,或者被外國人操作,必須削價競爭。而馬拉威的水都被國外拿來蓋汽水工廠,沒有剩太多乾淨的水源,只能喝汽水,所以馬拉威有很多人罹患糖尿病……

我們跟十歲孩子問的問題一樣,但問題是,十歲孩子理解的方式可能跟我們這群三十歲以上的人不同。

那是我第一次擔心,我們是否能讓伽利略知道那麼多。但影片已經拍攝下去了,我的擔憂,也被佛列通翻譯成馬拉威話,讓伽利略知道。

伽利略用他的方式讓我知道他沒問題。我每次拍完一個畫面上車的時候,他會細心的幫我整理器材,幫我把遮陽的衣服折好,給我一個放心的微笑。我告訴自己,不要小看孩子的純真及他們可以用這份天真來包容世界。所以每一次伽利略笑的時候,我都會被他激勵。

於是佛列通沿路教我們唱馬拉威電台放的廣告歌、馬拉威的問候語,帶我們去更多不同階層所在的地方拍攝,去傳統市集及超市買馬拉威的東西,吃各種食物……

我突然在想,每一個馬拉威孩童天真的眼神,會是在什麼時候變得跟街上的人一樣那麼憂鬱?又有多少人能像佛列通一般,這樣開心的說著英語,跟我們一起遊馬拉威,帶我們去這麼多地方?

他們的夢想又會是什麼呢?

我突然問了一直看著窗外的伽利略,他好高興且不加思索的回答說:「我要當一名司機。」

說完,佛列通高興的大笑。我沒笑,很認真的在想這個答案。

回到飯店,我腦海裡一直浮現著伽利略說「當一名司機」的天真表情。

同行的人說,我應該告訴他,這世界還有開飛機的人,還有開高速火車的人,還有開遊輪的人……

他們還告訴我,你可以告訴他老鷹跟小雞一起長大的故事:有隻老鷹跟小雞一起長大,牠一直都不知道自己張開翅膀就可以飛向天空。

隔天我告訴伽利略了!他說好。佛列通也說好,應該要讓夢想更大。

我們去了一個又一個部落,一個部落比一個部落還窮,孤兒也一村比一村多。

那些孤兒看到我們,都高興的追著我們,完全不陌生。

但他們只對一個人陌生,就是伽利略。

他們也追著他,但伽利略不願意。他們也問他問題,但伽利略不回答。

伽利略看到我們捐贈許多食物給部落長老,部落長老感動的哭了出來,伽利略撇開視線……

我不知道,是不是我們希望伽利略的夢想要大一點,讓他正在思考,還是也是孤兒的其他小朋友,讓他感到尷尬,我總覺得自己可能做錯了一件事,但不確定是什麼。

直到夜晚來臨,我們跟伽利略共進最後一道晚餐,看見伽利略一直不願意喝光最後一口水,我知道了原因。

「他捨不得了!因為最後這一口喝完,今天就結束了,也不會再有第二瓶了,對不對?」我問佛列通。

我不知道伽利略是否聽懂我說的話,還是他敏感到察覺我的情緒,他突然趴在桌上哭了起來。

我在想,這兩天伽利略和我們看到同樣的一切,他應該跟我一樣,是第一次看到這樣的馬拉威。而我們這一走,他要再過多久,才能再感受到這一切呢?

當他看到那麼多孤兒的時候,他也看見了自己的不同。

知道自己是個孤兒,跟意識到自己是一個孤兒,有很大的差別。

至於我們,是隨時都會離開的人,不只我們會走,佛列通也會在這份工作後離去。當我們把他的希望拉得好高好高後,卻紛紛揮手離開,他什麼面對的能力也沒有,只能待在離別及悲傷的情緒裡。

我點了第二瓶可樂給伽利略,我說不要哭,明天我們還會再見一次。

我整晚睡不好,我覺得我犯錯了!

我一直在想,我這輩子第一次面對離別及意識到自己的憂傷時,是怎麼走過來的?我要把讓自己爬起來的方式給這個十歲的孩子,卻發現我好像沒有原諒過任何一個憂傷的出處,我只是淡忘,只是用某種有一天一定要證明給對方看的氣憤心態去做另一件事。我可能學會更多逃避,或從此不去想那些事,即便是我現在要伽利略一定也不能忘的夢想,卻是我最不想再碰的東西。

翌日,非洲的太陽依然炙烈的把我熱醒,我還是決定要跟伽利略說一些話。

老天或許知道太陽可能會沖昏我的理智,這個下午,馬拉威有了一場大雷雨。

我們的車在烏雲及大雨中飛馳著,雨刷來回刷著我混亂的心情。我跟伽利略說很多以後可以學的東西,以及我雖然明天會離開,但是可以的話……

我怎麼樣也無法在這天真的孩子面前說完我自己都做不到的話。

伽利略的淚水跟大雨一般,佛列通生氣的停下車子。

我從未看過佛列通那麼生氣與著急,他一直跟伽利略說不要哭了,說他自己也是一個孤兒,但是他還是可以做到今天這份他想要的工作……

我完全聽不懂他們說的話,只看見伽利略慢慢的安靜了下來。

我的眼淚早在眼眶裡打轉,我不知道,連自己都止不了淚水,那為什麼不能讓一個十歲的小朋友乾脆就在他要離去的人面前好好哭一哭。

我想抱一下伽利略,他卻擦乾眼淚對我笑了!

我看著那抹神奇的笑容,也同時聽到佛列通說了一句好長的話,伽利略聽著,一直點頭。

那天太陽下山前,我們把伽利略送回了孤兒院。老天爺為了這場送別,給了我們一道在天空的彩虹。

伽利略一直笑,但這次沒有追著我們的車跑了!追著我們的小孩依舊很多,但我的眼裡只有他站在門口的笑容。

我問佛列通,你最後到底跟伽利略說了什麼,讓他停止了哭泣?

佛列通說,他告訴伽利略:「他們是明天要走了沒有錯,但你沒有看見,這個大哥哥現在看著你的時候都哭了!他都為你哭了,表示他是愛你的,所以,為什麼你不能為愛你的人,笑一個?

我想起伽利略的笑容。原來那是因為他知道,我是愛他的

原來,知道有一個愛你的人,能讓人有力量停止淚水,展露笑容。

我從來沒想過這點。

我也從來就以為,分開、離別、夢想的失落,都跟愛無關,而這一切真的都沒有愛嗎?

我們為什麼總會為了一個到不了的地方,而對一切失去信心與希望,為什麼不去回想,當初出發時的那股熱情,以及可能有個人在等待你回來的熱愛呢?

這世上真的有一個會為你流淚、愛你的人在你面前,不就是最幸福的事?

這個好像太陽每天都要掉落在這片草原上的國家,好像什麼都會被陽光照得清清楚楚,就像現在,即使我的臉已經迴避著車內任何一個人,但那刺眼的落日,照出我眼眶滿滿的淚水,反射在窗玻璃上透亮的閃著,好像要對這世界發出最閃亮的信號。

我微笑了。

為了愛你的人,笑一個吧!
----

偶然間看到這篇文章,覺得非常幸運與幸福,自己有把整篇文章讀完。
感動的原因有很多,當然包含了領悟到自己擁有的實在好多好多,好紮實好紮實;
還感動於自己如同李鼎一樣有許多機會四處走訪,擁有豐富的「知」的權利;
在一切的感觸之外,我更深深的被提醒「為什麼你不能為愛你的人,笑一個?
如果伽利略身處那樣的環境,那樣深的悲傷中都能為了一個素昧平生的、愛他的人在對方離去前擠出一抹燦爛的笑容送給她做為最好的禮物,為什麼我不能為了那些愛我的人多笑一點?
那麼多的人愛著我,在近處在遠處、在明處在暗處默默的支持著我,為我生活的每一個階段給我打氣、指點我勇敢的往前走,為什麼我不能為愛我的人,笑一個?

陪我一起,笑一個吧!因為我知道你也被某些人深深愛著 :)

Sometimes, One Will

think of someone so deeply;
and those splendid moments,
and those performances,
and the way that someone dresses, talks, and acts.

When I bumped into the same image over and over again,
none of those were planned,
I thus realized the irresistible impacts that person has brought to me.
There were something more than passion, more than words.

At the same time, however, I would feel sad, since nothing could be changed- at all.
C'est la vie...

12星座的一輩子

水瓶︰一輩子都在做夢

水瓶是12個星座中最難測的一個,這樣說的原因是因為連水瓶自己都經常不明白自己。崇尚自由的水瓶,外表上呈現冷漠與熱情的交變型態。水瓶還具有天生的理性了解人類內心的本性,同時擁有高度的容忍力,富於研究精神,喜愛一切新穎的東西,能接受新的發現。水瓶的理性特性會牽引他的思想常常“走私”,會憧憬著近乎不可能做到的事情,像是在自己做夢一樣,待清醒後,還會回歸自己本質的思想。 (yap, that's me~)


白羊︰一輩子都在急

白羊座出生的人,都是活躍族,他們就相當於是被春天的日照,撫過後欲放盛開的花卉,充滿活力卻又勁力十足的活躍者。白羊座的人對任何一點事都會很投入,且勇於冒險、追求速度,免不了都會對這個星座給與兩個字的評價“魯莽”,這樣急急匆匆的何時會是個頭呢?

金牛︰一輩子都在守

金牛座的人這一輩子都貌似在守,金牛座的宮位形成時期,正式春花盛開的美麗季節,所以他們是最具備美麗與調和的精神的,更是溫順可親的人,而且喜歡大自然,由於這股天性的特性,他們就像是季節下守護的春花,一輩子都分不清這個“守”,使金牛座的人會具備雙面的特性︰正面性格有耐性、持久、實際、熱情;負面性格則有懶惰、貪婪、頑固。對於金牛座,一定要守住一個度,不可迷茫的守護噢。

雙子︰一輩子都在徘徊

出生在雙子座期間的人,正是宮位形成翠綠美時期的時節,因此他們會是頭腦比較靈敏,且推理力優於他人甚多,他們是天生的傳播者。而雙子座的人喜愛變化,不可能同一時間只做一件事情,五時花六時變,心不在焉;雖然擁有些小聰明,但不專一,往往流於膚淺,持久力又低,一般的成功都是由一時興起而主意和建議引發出來的成功,可以說是理性但不安的星座。他們的徘徊是最沒有安定性的。

巨蟹︰一輩子都在等

巨蟹座的人生性多愁善感,有憂郁和作白日夢的傾向,他常會為過去那段美好的日子而緬懷不已,並容易生活在過去的陰影中,期望那些憧憬已久的畫面再次出現。而巨蟹本身又十分缺乏安全感,使他們對未來的種種都會充滿猶豫不決,無力推進感想,這使得巨蟹們更進一步的拉近了對過去的懷念感想,容易一直等待似乎距離自己不遠的美好向導。

獅子︰一輩子都在控制

獅子座的人具備太多的“優良品種”,又是具有強大領導能力的楷范兒,這樣種種的至高特性,都會使得獅子們具有自大、武斷、不容異己的缺點。令人感到訝異的是,獅子座的人相當敏感,容易受到傷害,不過因其具有戲劇天分,故在表面上能夠不動聲色,並且對不公平的對待展現出最大的寬容。在被激怒的時候,他會以王者的威嚴懾服對方。獅子座的人儘管出身寒微,依舊擁有一己的尊嚴和屬於自己的王國。可想而知,獅子的控制力是很強大的。

處女︰一輩子都在準備

處女座的人會有點挑剔,又近乎追求完美,但缺乏信心的個性會常在意識裡責怪自己還不夠美好。雖然難免會使心情沉重,但天生的優點就是放得開,不會就此一蹶不振。處處們的特點就是具有豐富的知性,做事一絲不苟,是個完美主義者,會嫉妒的厭惡虛偽與不正當的事,這種種的特性都是使處女座裡外精挑細選,包括自己的“形象包裝”,時刻在準備著很可能時刻都會發生的事,因為他們不喜歡把不完美的一面無意間暴漏給其他人。

天秤︰一輩子都在權衡

象徵著春天來臨的天秤座,他們的言行舉止會十分注意分寸,掌握的淋漓盡致,但卻又容易優柔寡斷、缺乏坦率、難於理解。天秤與別人相處既不可躁急,又不可簡單粗暴,因為對於感情很難預測,高興起來有時忘乎所以。天秤對於周遭發生的一切都興致勃勃,不僅知道事情的來龍去脈,而且還知道什麼時機對成功最有利。天秤座的人最善於發現哪些人與自己志趣相投。一輩子都會在權衡的天秤,各方面的擔子也會日積月累,會使自己比較壓抑、比較累。

天蠍︰一輩子都在猜疑

天蠍是一個有著強烈的第六感的星座,在很多時候都會做事常憑直覺,雖然也有著敏銳的觀察力,但往往仍靠感覺來決定一切。他們在情感上亦屬多愁善感的敏銳型,但卻以自己為中心,對他人的觀點完全不予理會,這使得天蠍會容易消極、悲觀、經常存在一種潛在的危機感,擔心自己生活上等等的曝光、猜疑在背後說自己壞話的事。天蠍的以自我為中心的特性,會使自己的猜疑心理更加沉重,久之,自己也會容易更加消極。

射手︰一輩子都在玩兒

射手座的人喜歡自由與戶外活動,心思運轉很快,往往同時將精力分散於多樣事務,而不願集中在單一目標。冒險心旺盛,喜歡交朋友、旅行,討厭受束縛,追求一種自由奔放的人生。對於該請而言,依然希望獲得人身自由,即便失去感情,也不會為之而苦惱,因為對於射手座來說,戀愛會常常出現身邊,因為他的天性就是具備豐富的幽默感、以及慷慨、樂觀、不缺乏朋友,這會使得射手們很快換轉心情,繼續找尋新的“玩法”、新的“自由”。

摩羯︰一輩子都在奮鬥

摩羯座可謂是正兒八經的真干派,他們具有較強的責任感、及堅定的耐力,雖然說,通常他們也絕少是天才型,但是卻心懷大志,經過重重的歷練,到中年期才會漸漸擁有聲名和成功,因為他們不屈的毅力是值得歷練的。摩羯們做事上也是很小心、節儉的,不過他們也會很內向、孤獨、保守、欠缺安全感及幽默感,常會給人一種嚴厲的姿態來掩飾自己,不過即便如此,他們的那份“斗勁”是不會絲減分毫的,會一直奮鬥在自己的理想之中。

雙魚︰一輩子都不知道自己在做什麼

雙魚是個古老複雜的星座,包含了太多的情緒,所以在情緒方面起伏非常的大,矛盾、敏銳的感性、知性、詩情和纖細的觸覺,種種衝擊之下便產生了無與倫比的藝術天才。他們愛作夢,也無時不在幻想,也常將這種情結搬到現實環境中,而顯得有些不切實際,他們的思想與現實生活的結合,往往會使他們自己弄不清自己真正想要追尋的東西,有時對待一件事情,也會出現多種的角度看法,蒙蔽了自己真正的想法,容易渾渾噩噩的。

15 Recently...

In response to a friend's quest to write down 15 items of "what's happening to me recently."
Feel free to leave me a comment and share with me what's happening to you recently. If you'd like to create a "15 Recently" list, you're more than welcomed to do so.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RECENTLY, I'm getting used to my commune life of 1.5 hrs from home to work, and 1.5 hrs from work to home. (nuts?)

RECENTLY, I randomly saw some familiar faces that reminded me of some lovely friends, beloved ones whom I missed so deeply.

RECENTLY, I got a lucky trip to visit Hong Kong with coworkers. Interestingly that brought me back to that one-week business trip memory in G Beijing. So miss the latter one.

RECENTLY, I often saw my lovely cat Pipi and realized how wonderful life is to have him with us by accident.

RECENTLY, I miss my lovely friends a lot and the interesting moments with them. How come I am so far away that I hardly can plan a dinner gathering with anyone?

RECENTLY, I spent time coaching interns for Taiwan Model UN Development Association and found the incredible potentials of college students nowadays.

RECENTLY, I started to drink more juice or to eat more fruit, and try to eat more vegi than meat. Why? Oh my..... I guess I'm really getting old :(

RECENTLY, my time on the MRT were spent on (1) taking a (long) nap or (2) reading magazines/books. I killed many 天下/遠見 and is reading "The New Art of the Leader." Well, if I can stay awake more often...

RECENTLY, "Daily Wendy" turned into something more like weekly Wendy. Sigh, so wish that I still have that much time and exciting discoveries to share as before.

RECENTLY, my skin allergy came visit without known reason from time to time. I WANT MY HEALTHY SKIN TO COME BACK :(

RECENTLY, I only sent out less than 5 postcards within a season. Where did that caring, warm Wendy go?

RECENTLY, I cannot find the motivation to play my piano. Even the piano cannot release me?

RECENTLY, finally I decided to buy some clothes in colors other than blue. Life is not only black and white, neither blue ;)

RECENTLY, I am thinking about what to do for new year countdown. Suggestions please~

RECENTLY, I desire to get phone calls other than business calls. The more, the better. Call me, would you?

一眼 也是瞬間

捷運車廂打開的那個剎那,從身邊穿出車廂的那個人長相氣質穿著打扮髮型眼鏡都好像你

於是我在那個微涼的夜,那陣風裡,倚著車門--呆滯

伸手就能搆著的彷彿就是你啊!


也就在那個瞬間理解到,自己曾經有多在乎

或者,自己還有多在乎.....

台灣人們,英文真的要加油,好嗎?

Concall裡面出現了雞同鴨講。對方講的很清晰,我方負責人聽得就是很模糊,大半時間用在一來一回確認那些問過好幾次的問題、答過好幾次的同一個答案,已經有點分不清到底是能力不夠,還是不夠用心?

對外國媒體的presentation除了內容本身的難懂性,讓人更難參透的是口音,還有要把中文腦同時打開才能理解的文字句法。也別忘了,還有那些重音怎麼放都放不對,得一邊聽一邊把重音歸位的「艱難字彙」。

Email裡面正式溝通使用的文字、句法、語氣真的有看場合需要符合不同的搭配標準,就算文法先不用力挑問題,字彙你也得挑對啊~尤其讓我害怕的是,連外語學系、或者所謂的歸國華人都有離譜言不及義的狀況,我眉毛都擠成一團,腦子都打結了啦~~~

親愛的可愛的台灣人們,我們的英文真的要加油,好嗎?

Happy Halloween on the 73F

This was a party with a theme: Men and women in service.
This was a party with friends: Old and new; friends, and the friends of those friends.
This was a party with excitement and nostalgia: excitement for those first comers, nostalgia for me.

I lost my words when seeing the night view from that gigantic window again...
Oh, I miss you SO MUCH.

Vince helped arrange the venue and prepared some drinks, food, and great music to impress all visitors; Noah kindly prepared some Sangria for everyone to drink; I helped, sometimes, to answer questions about the office and about the life there; everyone who were there jointly helped create one of the best Halloween nights in one another's life!

We got 4 female cops, one navy, one stewardess, two male nuns(?!), three baseball players, one nurse, two Japanese service lady, one female servant, one pretty female bartender, one Miss identification card lady in Chinese dress, one girl scout, one bee, etc. Oh yes, we have around 30 people gathered together, and that's why we had the varieties. Those who came without a costume: got face painted! (oh I LOVE that~) I felt so lucky that everyone could be so open-minded and just freely had fun together. There were several that I met for the first time, some second, but we all shared the moments like the way we spent with long time friends.

I am also impressed by how tiny the world is: I found a primary school friend's friend; I met the business partner of an HBS girl friend, who she planned to introduce me to but couldn't find the time; I found yet another primary school pal; and we bumped into a group of friends on the way to Barcode (uh... why were you there, girls?).

"Show me the photos!" you might say. Unfortunately I didn't take any, but I could possibly get some from others later when they share. Stay tuned!
Thank you everyone once again! It's great to have you adding colors to my life :D
