睇電視學做人

繼賭場風雲後,又一鉅獻…令我今晚連續個多小時淚流滿面…溏心風暴…大契!!!
 
到目前為止,我學到最大的教訓是:不要積著一股怨氣。為何我總是覺得有人欠了我?為何我總是覺得天主欠了我?今早的"每朝一讀"中,看到了一句,大意是: don’t be fooled by the WRONG sense of entitlement. 為何別人總是說:做人要知足常樂?要是每天都認為自己被虧待,我們會如果生活呢?我們眼前所得的都不再重要,只有尚未得到的才是最好的。<-這種思考方式,你話死唔死?!
 
我已不只一次有這個領悟,但不久過後又回復長嗟短嘆…醒呀老友,醒呀! Plak, plak, plak… (自摑10巴)

前程錦繡

連續兩個星期日在電台聽到這首歌,馬上上了腦。罕有地清新,多得at17監製以及香港小學最鼓勵小朋友學的牧童笛。
 
作曲:林宇中 | 填詞:林若寧| 編曲:盧凱彤 | 監製:At17

那年一起靜坐抗議
那年一起玩物喪志
那年一起暗戀 然後失戀了默默扶持
那年班長競選 才學會政治
當走進大社會 奉獻少罵戰多
相識接着拆伙 朋友仔沒有幾個 幾個
敵人很多 少一個不算少 多一個都太多

當初唱字母歌 學會的未算多
終於領悟更多 人跌倒又上一課 一課
校門即使逐一給光陰上鎖
都緊記當初

某人新婚席上再見
笑容顯得特別靦腆
那年一起 嗌交無奈今天已靜默無言
我們交出那款循例性笑臉
當走進大社會 是與非右與左
當中價值太多 朋友仔沒有幾個 幾個
聚頭不多 推搪有工作多 多親切都變疏
不想唱勵志歌 勵志歌 勵志麼
彼此背負太多 隨每天習慣經過 經過
為誰奔波 獲得比當初再多 比不上當初

當走進大社會 奉獻少罵戰多
相識接着拆伙 朋友仔沒有幾個 幾個
敵人很多 少一個不算少 多一個都太多
當初唱字母歌 學會的未算多
終於領悟更多 人跌倒又上一課 一課
夕陽之歌 剩低這一首輓歌
想起我當初

 
 

窮途未必係末路…

絕境也可以逢生。
 
這句話正好代表了這星期發生在我或我朋友身上的事。當你發現你就快死得時,一隻強而有力的上帝之手再一次出動,拯救了我們。
 
不論你現在有幾黑仔/不滿/愁,請多撐一會!要相信在你就快撐不住時,上帝之手自會出動將快要壓死你的大石移走。

讀樂樂

Stopped my breakfast reading for a while… and it got started again for more than a month ago… coz I ordered 4 books on 1 boring night from amazon.ca. I love being able to read during my stay in the tea restaurant every morning~ It’s good to fill my mind with something useful/interesting/assuring before heading to work.
 
Getting books from amazon has become my favorite way of buying books… For Chinese books, I love to 打書釘 a lot. But Chinese books are crazy expensive here… So I started getting English books from amazon.ca instead… For buying English books, I pick books by reading lots of reviews before I decide to buy… My latest batch of books should be all good
 
I’m almost done with reading the 3rd one: The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-time. I found myself reading so few novels in these past few years. I think the last novel I read was something I got from HK in 2005. It was a novel called 手機 by a author in Mainland China. And that was surprisingly good! I remember I finished reading it within like 3 days.  Novels used to be what I read MOST OF THE TIME when I was a teenager. I read 赤川次郎’s 三色貓偵探系列,亦舒,lots of 張小嫻 and even 瓊瑤 when I got really bored
 
Hmm, back to this "Dog" book… It is sooo good! I first heard of it in hocc’s blog. She said she found the cover interesting, and saw different pictures when she flipped through the pages. And it turns out to be a very good book! And then I saw Jess wrote about it again in her blog… That has been quite a while actually~ And that night while browsing at amazon, I just suddenly remember about this book… It is the author’s (Mark Haddon) first book and it is so well-written! The book is written in 1st person narrative, the main character in the book being an autistic teenager~ This guy is a genius in Math and problem-solving, he is like a computer… But being autistic makes him almost inhuman, he is not capable of understanding the simplest human emotions. He is so selfish. I still have 5 pages to go before I finish the book (leaving it for tomorrow’s breakfast…hehe), and I find myself hating him so much now!! It is sad… coz he doesn’t deliberately do things to hurt people around him, but he is just pure annoying… And I become very compassionate towards parents who have autistic kids now…
 
Since I feel like blogging tonight, I might as well talk about the other 2 books that I finished reading lately…
 
The last book that I read is… How to Have That Difficult Conversation You’ve Been Avoiding: With Your Spouse, Adult Child, Boss, Coworker, Best Friend, Parent, or Someone You’re Dating (such a long name…). It’s a book about having fruitful conversations that can have lasting impact on relationships. What I like about it is that its principles are based on passages taken from the Bible. The authors are clinical psychologists who do counselling… In this book, they talk about the attitudes we show to the people whom we find difficult to deal with… they also talk about it’s important to not assume ourselves are the "righteous" ones, we should first find out whether we contribute in that other person’s problems… They talk about tonnes of other things that I can’t summarize here. I can only say that I’ve been enlightened after reading this book… What they said makes a lot of sense, but they are things that we don’t usually pay attention to.
 
And the book I read before that… hehe… I feel embarrassed to say I read it, but I’m glad that I did. It’s called Lady in Waiting
 
Hmmm.. So this book are for Christian women… It’s a must-read for women…hmmm, single or not, I think. It’s so easy to feel insecure after being single for a longer period than you expected… This book reminds you about all the characteristics that a godly woman should possess… The author also reminds these single women that the time while being single is actually a "golden time". This freedom is often NOT treasured by many single women… It’s a really good read and I feel my faith is restored somewhat after reading it – not that I’m assured that I’m eventually find someone, it’s that knowing there isn’t anybody in this world who can "complete" me, other than God. So whether that "someone" is there or not, shouldn’t matter that much in the end.
 
Haha, I think I’ve written enough for tonight~ I just wanna share the good books I read… Check them out!
