Goodbye"ing" 2008

Finally it comes to the end of my SAD year.... Lot of unhappiness in and out of my life during this year. The biggest blow was my most respected DADDY pass away. I really can't accept the fact that he is gone in my life. I still think that he is somewhere in this world watching over me. Anyway, life has to go on and everyone will face this situation sooner or later. And because of this incident, I treasure my family more than ever. I treasure what ever things I have in my life. 

Why I love GUNDAM 00 so much? Is because my DADDY watching this cartoon with me when he still around. That is why I become so addicted to the model kits and it animation. It will keep my memory alive. 

Next year is a brand new year that I have alot of thing have to complete by the end of the year. I will keep remind myself of my goal and review after a period of time. I know time is limited, but with proper and priority arrangement. Everything will be possible as long as I don't give up.

I am Lucky that I don't realise

Having my mum around is such a lucky thing in this world. She cook nice food for me, wash my dirty clothing, keep the home in top condition and care about what I do. I have my dream job, I have my family, I have everything that I long waited. 2008 coming to the end and I already planned to do alot of thing next year. With such a good condition in my life, I got to strike hard and let no body down.

Sometime I just can't accept the fact that some of these people live in the world....

  1. Take people thing without inform the owner (even take credit from others) MOST HATED
  2. Scold people even they are at the losing end
  3. People work, you also work but don't seem like you are around
  4. Lazy people always have a lot of excuse
  5. Poor people always have a lot of pattern, trying to make themselves look nice but pocket is empty
  6. Only know how to take advantage from others
  7. Ages not equal to the actual behaviors
I just feel that I am so lucky again to meet all these people before my age reach 30. I will aware and study hard how they behave. So that I will not fall into their trap again in the future. 

Life is a Journey of Learning... but when you have enough knowledge, time left no more.

Hong Kong Trip countdown

My real holiday of the year is coming. But I still have to rush out all the job before leaving for good. Planning on how to maximum the time spend in Hong Kong. Hai... this time round is all because of my DEAR that not able to take long leave. So I only have 5 days spend over HK which is from Tuesday evening till Sunday afternoon. Planning to go shopping on Wednesday for long sleeve shirt or jacket due to cold weather. Thusday should be a good day for DISNEY land because less people go on weekday as it have a special christmas theme. DISNEYLAND CHRISTMAS
Friday will visit Ocean Park and the PEAK during evening time. Saturday will be another round of shopping and hopefully will get all the thing that I want and leave Sunday morning as an extra day for more shopping. HAHA

Fated or you can control over it?

The dream girl that you admire for so long is taking train back to home everyday. But you have to take bus. Will you called it "fated" not to meet each other after work??

You actually will try to create the chance to see each other by walking to the further bus stop whereby same direction as the train station locate. So that you can enjoy the chit chat session with her and get to know her more.

Nothing is impossible in this world, is how determined you want to achieve it. Of course is easier when will talk about love. Because the power and emotion is strong in this field. But if we can use the same mentality on work or something more meaningful. The power will be very strong that it able to get the person high on top of them all.

Michael Jordon love basketball
Valentino Rossi love Bike
Tiger wood love Golf
Ronaldo love Soccer

We have to find our goal. Something that we can achieve and make sure not dreaming. Win TOTO and 4D is a dream and it will only come truth when you have luck. But you will never achieve it by buying more ticket.

Life is short and make good use of it. Find your own goal and work toward it. Make sure don't give up until you achieve something.

智慧話語

有道是:『江山易改,本性難移。』
習氣毛病一旦養成,就很難改正;
因為,難就難在看不到自己的缺點。
而人一生最大的修行,也只在戒除習氣毛病而已!

 承諾,是一種責任也是一種信譽。
但卻常因礙於情面或一時之利而勉強答應,
結果除帶給自己很大的壓力外,
亦可能造成嚴重的後果。
故承諾之前當三思再三,
切莫感情行事造成難以彌補的遺憾!

 一切的過失,

沒有比道人是非來的嚴重!
人的一生多少都曾受到流言的傷害,知其可怕,
就當從己身做起,戒談人我是非!

 人生最難得的享受莫過於享清福。
天天無事,日日無懮,這樣自在的人生可求得嗎?
答案是肯定的--看破、放下即可得到!

 人生百態猶如一面鏡,
見人過失易,不責人過失難。
雖然鏡裡的一切,清清楚楚,明明白白。
但智者,可以借之反思警戒;
而愚者,卻入中看戲而沈迷不悟!

 小看自己,
往往會錯失許多的機會。
相信自己,經過努力與歷練之後,能力與會增強。
所以,千萬不要輕易放棄自己!
因為,人有無窮的潛能,正等待你去開發!


 物質的享受,
並不會帶來真正的幸福與快樂。
它只有加深貪婪與放逸而已。
而真正喜樂的源頭活水,
則是來自內心沒有一絲一毫的牽掛。

 智者,會努力充實自己,造福人群;
愚者,常存較量之心,永遠想跟別人比!


 諺云:『人非聖賢,孰能無過。』
過失所造成的傷害與痛苦,
深信在這一生中都會感到無盡的遺憾。
與其深受良心的煎熬,
不如痛定思痛,勇於承認,後不再造!


 勤能補拙,

要相信自己也有一顆純善之心,
只要肯學習,自有善行圓融的一天

Time to Grow Up AGAIN!!!

Seem like I still not able to see this BEAUTIFUL world. Everything Happened not according to my plan. People come and go from my life without warning. Even how much effort I put in to achieve something. But nothing seem to be happen or problems keep hitting me. I am so sick of it... Trying to figure out what is really happen and lucky I have this song for my sad period.



Very nice song and I repeated it for more than 10 times. At least something stuck in my head to keep me busy by remember the Lyric.

Change is good? or bad? What will happen if I trying something new in my life? Who will love the most? HAI.... troublesome SIMON here...

Always not able to get what you EXPECTED


You let go Most of your best CHANCES
Spending money before ages 30, very Happy
Spending money after ages 30, Most Happy

Working hard before ages 30, very TIRED
Working hard still after ages 30, Most TIRED

You can't resist your life from going FORWARD

Someday, I meet you and we found LOVE

If we not able to stay together forever, it mean that we lack of FATE.
And since we have no FATE with each other, what is the point to feel REGRET?


Don't purposely change yourself because of someone else,
it is meaningless.
He don't even love the REAL you, how about someone that no longer you yourself anymore?

REST? don't forget someone still running around you

Brain POWER

3, a patient who need an operation

Which one you will choose?

If you take the one that you like. You will indirectly killing 2 persons life. But if you take the doctor, the patient not able to receive treatment and your "like" one will hate you. What to do?

人生的三部曲:
Life trilogy:

人生上半場:
追求成功(把別人當做自己成功的肥料)
Life first half:
Pursues successfully (make use of others strength to achieve success)

人生下半場:
追求智慧(把自己的成功分給別人)
Life second half:
To pursue wisdom (apportions own success to others)

人生後半場:
追求價值(把生命的價值留給後代)
Life last second half:
To pursue value (leaves behind life value to descendant)


Serious Question here....

在進一步交往之前,先問自己:
我喜歡這個人是否附帶條件?
我是否在逃避什麼?我是否企圖想改變這個人?
如果你對其中一個問題的答案是肯定的,
那麼你還是離開這個人。
他沒有你,會過的更快樂。


Before further Associate with your love one. Ask yourself

Any condition exchange when you like this person?
Are you escaping from something that bother your life?
Are you trying to change this person’s life?

If your answer is yes to any of the above 3 questions. You should leave your partner right now. Because he/she will live better without you around.

心態的力量 Sharing this here... I have lot of though from here...

The strength of the strength,
mindset of the mindset


女兒向父親抱怨,事事都很艱難。
The daughter complains toward the father,
everything is all very difficult.
她不知如何應付生活,
好像一個問題剛剛解決,
新的問題又會出現,
她有些厭倦。
She hards put to cope with a life,
seem a problem just resolve, t
he new problem appeared again,
she was some tired.

父親是一位廚師,

把她帶進廚房。
The father is a cook,
bringing in the kitchen to her.


他先往三口鍋裡倒入一些水,然後放在旺火上。
He goes toward first to pour
into some waters in three people's pot,
then puts on the prosperous fire.


不久,水開了。
Soon, boiling.


他往第一口鍋裡放一些胡蘿蔔,
第二口鍋裡放入雞蛋,
第三口鍋裡放入碾成粉末的咖啡豆。
He goes toward an one mouthful to
put some carrots in pot,
putting into the egg in the second pot,
putting to become the coffee bean
of the powder into the third pot.



20分鐘後,
父親把火關了,
把胡蘿蔔撈出來,
放入一個碗內,
把雞蛋撈出來,
放入一個鍋內,
然後把咖啡舀到一個杯子裡。
20 after minute,
the father closed fire,
getting out carrot,
putting to go into a bowl,
getting out an egg,
putting to go into a pot,
then ladling up the coffee to a cup.


父親轉身問女兒:
The father turns round to ask a daughter:


「孩子,你看到了什麼?」
"Kid, what do you come in sight of?""


「胡蘿蔔,雞蛋,咖啡」。
Carrot, egg, coffee.


她說。
"She say.



他讓她靠近一些,摸摸胡蘿蔔。
He lets her close to some, touch carrot.


她注意到他它們變軟了。
She takes notice of him them to become soft.


父親又讓女兒拿一個雞蛋,
打破它,剝掉殼,
這是一個煮熟的雞蛋。
The father lets the daughter
take an egg again,
breaking it, shelling hull,
this is a cook of egg.

最後,父親讓她喝了一口咖啡。
End,
the father lets her drink
an one mouthful coffee.


嘗到濃濃的咖啡,
女兒笑了,怯聲問道:
Taste to the very thick coffee,
the daughter smile,
the calm voice asked a way:


「父親,這意味著什麼?」
"Father, what does this mean?"



父親說,
三樣東西面臨同樣的逆境
——煮沸的開水。
The father says three kind things
face same adverse circumstances-boil
of boiled water.


但其反映各不相同。
But its reflection is each not same.


胡蘿蔔入鍋前是強壯的、
結實的,放進開水,
它變軟了、變弱了。
The carrot goes in to be strong
and fructify before the pot,
putting into the boiled water,
it become soft,become weak.


雞蛋原來是易碎的,
薄薄的外殼保護著液態的內臟,
開水一煮,內臟變硬。
The egg is originally crumbly,
the very thin outer shell protects
the internal organs of the liquid,
once the boiled water cook,
the internal organs become hard.


粉狀咖啡豆則很獨特,
進入沸水,
它們便改變了水。
The powder form coffee bean
then is very special,
entering boiling water,
they changed a water then.


在艱難和逆境前,
可以學胡蘿蔔、雞蛋和咖啡豆,
可以屈服,
也可以變得更堅強——
甚至,可以改變環境。
Canned learn the carrot,
egg and coffee bean before the difficulties
and adverse circumstances,
can accept defeat,
can also become stronger-even
can change environment.



父親說:
The father say:


你改變不了環境,但可以改變自己;
Your change not environment,
but can change an oneself;


你改變不了事實,但可以改變態度;
Your change settle a dispute actually,
but can change an attitude;


你改變不了過去,但可以改變現在;
Your change not past,
but can change now;


你不能控制他人,但可以掌握自己;
You have no command over others,
but can control an oneself;


你不能預知明天,但可以把握今天;
You can't predict tomorrow,
but can hold today;


你不能樣樣順利,
但可以事實盡心;
You can't be everything smooth,
but can be devote with fact;



你不能左右天氣,
但可以改變心情;
You can't or so weather,
but can change a mood;


你不能改變容貌,但可以展現笑容;
You can't change facial appearance,
but can emerge smiling face;


是的,
心態有時比什麼都重要。
Yes,
the mindset sometimes compares
what all important.

Wonderful APPLE


Upgraded my iPhone to firmware 2.2 and did a stress test on it. Wonderful respond without crash. I listen to music while I surfing my net which contain a lot of pictures. It always crash my safari or my music will hang. But not for this update... So impress on how APPLE fix this bugs. I am not sure what is going on whether APPLE really fix the bugs or they want user to upgrade the firmware in order to break the piracy. Which I think is according to their plan just like how Microsoft spread around the rumors of having a strong virus and update hotfix. So that Microsoft will able to catch those user who using Pirated WINDOWS.

Unpredictable world

By slashing 50,000 of employee in order to save cost. Citibank went to the wrong direction, stock price drop and now force to sell assets. No one can predict what is the outcome in town hall later.

Sad to see such a huge bank stock price drop like free fall.

It prove that what you want will never be what you get.... (in the first place) but I have faith in Citi.

Monopoly GOOD?

I start to realize how Great to be part of APPLE MONOPOLY. Everything simply work with each and others. My iPhone able to control iTune on my MAC as well as on PC. Wireless setup is easy, effortless on editing movie as well. No extra driver or software to be install. Safari pop up almost immediate when I double click the icon. Music is nicely arrange by iTune. iCalender help me keep track of my schedule as well as public holiday which can download from APPLE.com. Video camcorder can plug straight in and edit using iMovie.

That is something microsoft can't do at all even though they start this game first.

I believe in doing the best and push to the limit. Why should apple make so many Laptop like SONY do? So many different series, so many price range, spec almost look the same. That is the whole industry have to aware of.

Friendster is down on the 2nd day. Rumors about this .com company is closing soon. Anyway, after a few day of trying on this website. I feel that they deserve to be in this situation whereby FACEBOOK is on top of this social network. A little bit more of user friendly and more easy hostname. Everything changed...

Change

Technology shorter the distance that we supposed to have. With handphone, internet and TV as our media to connect each others. Pay bills using SAM machine instead of queue up at Post office, obtain news from internet or TV instead of newspaper, SMS and email instead of write letters, make a call on handphone instead of street phone, listen to song on MP3 player instead of cassette tape. Our life totally change within 10 years and it still improving. 

We use to gain wealth with a piece of fertile land which can produce food. As technology getting advanced, we turn rocky land to high rise building or factory. We change the game totally. From junk to something treasure. From big and fertile land to small and rocky land. What is next now?

Look at Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Youtube, Ebay... what is common in all these company? Is just a simple idea and virtual space for them to grow and earn money. 

I just insert back my ringtone column with the latest Jay chow album. New column for the website that I always go. Enjoy

Term and Condition

Mark PaperMaster is supposes to join APPLE as iPod chief developer. But due to the term and Condition that restrict by previous owner IBM. He has to cease work and involve himself in this court case. According to the agreement with IBM, he cannot join competitor if he leave the company within a year. Why is such T&C apply on so many different field of job? If a soccer player not able to join competitor within a year of leaving his club? I think a lot of player already sat at home a long time.

The challenger for iPhone


T-mobile G1


BlackBerry Storm




Here Come the Worst ever Copy Cat


Overall, I feel that Nokia may threaten iPhone due to the interface. It can provide 4 different kind of input. Include finger, Pen, handwrite and touch Keypad.

The worst one is the iorange... Copy... same anyway

iPhone from different views


I am so glad to have iPhone with me everyday and night. Especially this 2 days when I have to report work at Jurong whereby is hard to find your way at factory area. My iPhone GPS doing well in order to guide me.

But others don't see the same like me. They find that by launching iTune to Sync with iPhone is a kind of waste time. I will say if music, video and photo are all control by the same application and sync in one shot. It will reduce a lot of time and effort.

Blue Tooth not able to transfer files is a way to restrict iPhone to leak out corporate information. As well as not able to send contact information.

My first DVD project on MAC

I try on Both my Mac and PC for my new toy. It seem like PC very stupid that must install driver to run the Video Cam. True Plug and Play for mac without any prompt. Creating a Video is very easy on iMovie. With iDVD I can burn my project out. But convert the video files from iMovie in order for iDVD to read is taking too much time. I will try something else instead of convert through using Share function.

Hope everything will go smooth. But I worry the most is my baby Laptop that it keep produce lot of heat... hai... Heart pain to let it run until so hard... haha

Windows 7 = Windows Vista + Mac OS X + iPhone





By looking at the look of the Windows 7 is actually Vista right? And when it start to zoom in and out of the photo and rotate it. I think of iPhone and Mac OS X which support multi touch now. Microsoft promise to have faster OS and stable platform. We will see what they going to do about that without changing the entire OS foundation. According to some research, Vista after 3 years of long fight.... only a quarter of PC change from XP to Vista. Microsoft is killing himself.

公平??? in this world

That is always lot of noise from this topic. We only have to accept the fact that JUSTICE no longer in this world. That why fairness also gone. By doing your part will not get you far. But by saying something or writing something nice... Somebody on top will always recognize your effort.

Apple will shock the world again as they increase their cash flow to 25 Billion without any debt. According to last economic downturn. Apple manage to expand it business from online to APPLE SHOP. What is next?

As Microsoft start to give up on their Vista Project. The advantage of APPLE is getting clearer. What if game developer have a gate way to run game on MAC? Will PC no longer popular? How about the attractive price that APPLE offer?

Happy day


Cute Cat leh... haha... suddenly feel that I have long time never touch my blog.

Rossi got what he want this year and working hard for next year. Seem like F1 also have tough fight this weekend. But too bad I am not really into this game. Gundam 00 season 2 is out and already 4 episode gone. Once month just fly by.

Learn from Robert Kiyosaki that planning is the beginning of every successful story. Can you remember the last time that you achieve something actually is by planning well? Don't mess up your life and get everything under control.

Our Dearest Microsoft try to fool people again. Sending out some warning about new virus which will badly damage all PC. Actually they trying to get all the windows software update and they will able to track down all the pirated OS. Trying to be funny... haha!!!

You are Talented but not No 1

You can be born talented. You can learn a sport in the fastest time. You are gifted amount your friend but you still have a world.

Michael Jordon is the greatest basketball player of all time. He is not gifted but he work hard for himself. Practice more than anyone, spend more time on the count and learn from his own mistake. Tiger Wood start his first GOLF lesson at 3 and turn professional at 21. How much time he put into this career? Valentino Rossi, the king of Motogp. Won his 9th champion this season. 2nd place is Dani Perdosa who commend that Rossi has put in alot of hard work this weekend in order to get this result.

No one is perfect and practice is the key to success.

My new toy

By right I wanna get Sony camcorder yesterday. But after the sales man show me the different between sony and my New Toy below



the wide angle and the price really make me backup from buying Sony which is $300 more just to get 10GB more harddisk space but 10X zoom less compare to my Toy.

Editing movie using my MacBook is kind of job. Easy and fast... GREAT

Is kind of restriction to post something to net and share with others whereby is just a low quality video. Digital industry never push hard for it LCD TV and HD into every family. They keeping the price high but wish that you will buy it. Why they can't do what APPLE doing by replace the old one with more cheaper price in order to get popular? Why the price of LCD cannot as low as CRT? Is because we still able to see CRT in the market... If everyone have a HD TV at home. Youtube video with low quality is just a kind of advertisment for people to look for better quality BLUERAY video.



APPLE just launch it new MacBook. Very nice and I'm so sad that just got my at JUNE but new model come out at OCT. Take a look of the video and you will know how much effort that APPLE put into this new BABY.

Change or No change?

Growing up is a process. Physically we changing our shape of body and at the same time our thinking is changing at the same time. Change is necessary in our life that can give us different view toward same situation. We always can go the easy way and repeat the same old thing again and again. But why don't we give it a try to change and achieve new experience?

We like see, hear and touch nice thing. Will you prefer to listen to someone successful story or you wish to hear their failure? But you learn from failure or success?

Song that happened to know when one of the boss get a BLACKBERRY BOLD. nice song

Technology

Technology is a new style of living standard. It can be a helper in ur life or something that decorate yourself. Either option that we selected above we gives them profit.
I jus got my SingTel bill for my iPhone and I found out that the data charge is so expensive. (128MB cost $600+) Lucky I have 2GB to play with and I test run on my first month bill in order to prevent money from spending unnecessarily. IPhone is a tool for me to keep track of my life and reduce time spend on PC while I able to surf on the move. But to one of my friend that he treat iPhone as an "IN" gadget. He subscribed to a low-end plan without data access and knows nothing about the function of the phone beside message and call out. Apple still manage to earn from us either way.

Biggest news to all music lover that iTunes may close down or increase it music price if Copyright Royalty Board have to increase the amount of the artist get when they sell their song online. Due to the profit margin, if CRB increase it price for a song. iTunes will not able to continue work in this way now.
But the lucky thing is Apple manage to keep the price for the next 5 years from the latest news that I get. Go go Apple, when no one care about selling music in low price in order to let artist earn. You are the one who able to make music legally download with such a huge user base. Everyone happy in the end rather than get nothing.

Though...

Long time never write my blog due to busy life. Lot of thing need to be settle at work.
Trying to fully use the MobileMe application before the trial version expire. Because I still not sure should I apply for the services or not.
The world reaching it limit. Either Natural and un-natural. Global warming
crated alot of disaster such as earth quake, typhoon, tornado and water
level rise up due to ice burg melting. Banking system finally extend
to it fully strength. Everything starts to collapse and expose it problem.
Singapore is doing very well by invest in different type of industry
to keep economic growth. F1 is a huge success in this small island.
Even Hong Kong forum also feel that HK start to lose out. Not able to
see their own future.
My iPhone is like my friend that keeps growing up. With the latest
firmware, 3 click in the remote and music able to skip backward
without touching the screen. Typing get fast and more intelligent
toward those words that I sometime use.
Went pass HMV and happen to see Jay Chow new album on reserve which

saying is wasting of money but emphasize on pirated is such a huge
impact to those entire song writer. Anyway, I already do my part to

What can we do?







Who is caring all these problems? A LIFE IS BORN AND GONE every single second. Can we treasure the moment that we have right now? Do we fully spend every moment?

Nothing going to make this world stay because everything change every second. So many thing that we have to do but so little time we have. Or should I say our time management is bad? Human just pushing everything forward and only think of now. We will never care what going to happen next moment. Some people just spending every single cents when they got their salary. They just simply don't learn their lesson.

F1 ticket is hard to grab due to those tickets were bought by big company. And they jus simply give it out to their employee. It made the rich get rich and the poor will never have the chance to go thru this kind of moment.

Rich - Poor
Life - Dead
Time - Money

Never ending game in this human world.

iPhone... the best

Battery life really improve alot without switch on 3G and less use on music. Right now I still enjoy almost full batt after a day of work which consist of call and message. My total usage is 1 and half hrs and 16 hrs of standby. Cool man... iPhone is like my personal assistance now. Whatever I think of and whatever I going to do. It will keep track for me and the fun part is I actually can send email back to my computer when I need to copy inventory.

Without music on the run actually give my mind some peace to do some thinking.

Time to share some F1 track photo.

This is the photo that I take from Marina square. You can see how bright is the light. When you look carefully, you will found some gap in between the fencing. (as show below)


what is this gap for when they set up this fencing is to block out people walk into the track? The answer is what if accident happen in the track? How is the driver escape? How to let people go in to rescues? HAHA


More photo tomorrow due to my camera not enough battery.

Here is my MobileMe share drive. MobileMe
Start to upload new song into it

"Thank you" F1

What a day!!! Every single place is block and my bus suppose to reach marina square and end up stop at bugis. I have to walk all the way to suntec area. Wa... So hot and tired. Not only go to work but back from work as well. Still have 8 more day to go exclude saturday and sunday. Hai....

Tomolo I will take some picture around my area to see clearly how the circuit is build and some funny thing. Hopefully still there.

Got my feet up again to run a big circle around my area. Not 5 km so long as yesterday did. But I continues run without stop much. So shag now cos both my feel is pain. Really old liao...

I got my MacBook battery back to 100% health and extend my iphone battery life. I do agree iphone have short battery life compare to normal handphone. But think of the screen size and the multi function that iphone can support. Sometime we just simply forget how much thing it work on. While listen to music, we play game and do SMS. All this activity consume alot of battery yet we blame on APPLE not doing a good job. With so many sensor on the screen surface and light all over the screen. Battery life enable user to use 6 hrs continuously is very great. What you expect more?

F1 is coming

Wa... such a long period of time to host this F1... officially need 2 week for the road closure which is from 23th to 5th. As my knowledge and for what I seen so far. Road will be amend from 23th to 26th so that they have time to remove the yellow and white line. Why have to close after race which from 29th to 5th? As what I know, race car have to do few more test after race in order for them to gather information for next year race. If anything I said wrong here. Do drop me comment so that we can share our knowledge.

Chasing my life now. Start to run again and you can see from the side bar which is 5KM. Not very far to somebody but not for me. Anyway, if I not able to complete this small thing. How can I achieve something big in the future. I have to force myself to complete it in order to get back my rhythm of life.

Get my iphone to run on the new technology call Genius. Quite a fun function that enable your iphone to search for similar rhythm song to combine as a playlist. But don't support Chinese, Japanese and Korea song so far I know. HAHA

This picture take from Raffle city which is fun to look at when you personally standing there and look through the Blue and Red transparent Glass... you will find some magic there. haha

Mobile me sign up

Finally got myself into Apple's MobileMe services trial testing for 60 days. Trying to figure out how to maximum my work using this MobileMe before it expire. Sending email on the move is a great way to communicate with others. But due to my mail account setup at hotmail long time ago. I will have difficulty to get all my friend shift to my new account. Sync calendar and contact is the greatest thing that I found in this package. It will auto send the change that I made on my phone to the CLOUD and send back straight to my MacBook which make thing easier for me. But as I think of the price that I need to pay out for one year subscription which cost 140+, I can get Gmail and yahoo mail work with my phone without invest any single cents. Beside, I can sync calendar and contact once I turn on my MacBook. Still have to take some time in order for me to explore more so that I can point out the pros and cons. Even with the virtual harddisk which have capacity of 20GB, my company(CITIBANK) actually bend this www.me.com and I will never have a chance to download or upload document from work.

Looking at the NIKE side bar and I realize that I only left 8 more days to complete this 30km goal for this month. I have to make it happen no matter what due to my body getting FAT.

Back from my "SIONG" reservist

2 Week inside camp without any internet access. Can't take it and lot of thing I lost of touch. Especially AIG not able to survive in the crisis. Anyway, I am back. And everything will go back to the same soon. But one big lesson that I learn in camp is that I no longer young in my life. Lot of thing I not able to perform during the active day compare to now. Have to treasure my body and my time now. I have alot of thing want to say but not with my mind that cramp with lot of thinking. Will update once I arrange all my idea.

My Dog Fur is long after only 2 week. Got to cut it short soon

Youth for the money

jus went for my friend office opening ceremony that he invite Lion Dance foe the event. Looking at the Lion Dance team which consist of so many young people in it. I suddenly have a though that where will they be in the future when they get old. I know some of them is doing it as part time. But if you wish to be someone great in this field you have to do it with all your heart. As the drum and "LUO" start making sound. The level getting high and my ear start to feel uncomfortable. Looking at them doing it without putting up any protection for the ear. The risk for the ear to function well in the future getting slim. Life will not be the same if our hearing is gone.

Again, I writing this blog using my dearest iPhone. Anyone have doubt on this smart gadget will have to think twice. :)

Last day to spend my normal life at home

Tomorrow will be my ICT (in Camp Training). Must spend my time to finish all my unfinish thing.
Too bad, I am not going to take my precious Iphone go in camp due to army have their own security reason. Can't surf net and have to surf the nation. Anyway, hopefully I can enjoy myself there and come back in one piece. haha

Something that Microsoft never really think of the big picture is... since microsoft MSN is so large and so many people access their hotmail. Why they don't provide more service in iphone to support in order to get people stay with them? Instead, more people switch to gmail and others mail account in order to get your iphone work with free mail account. Wrong move.

Friday, September 5, 2008

Start to pick up on my iphone skill.

Using 3G network to surf net using iphone. Is a very great experience. Fast and stable... You able to do lot of thing that you do on your PC's browser. The only disadvantage is the java and flash plugin that still not able to work on hand held devices. Typing no longer a challenge to me now. Since I know how the iphone behave when wrong button is press. It will auto correct to the closer button and guess the words. Great feature...

Since I am not always forward others SMS. So without this function build on the iphone didn't cause any problem to me. Battery life will still need to take some time to look into it as battery need 3 full charge to reach it max level. Personal ringtone need to purchase from Itune in order to get convert. But find a good way to do so by Using apple Itune and some of your precious time.

1. Right click on the song you are going to make into a ringer and select “Get Info.”
2. Go to the options tab and go down to the “Start Time” and “Stop Time” check boxes. Check both boxes and input the time you want your ringer to start/stop. The ringer has to be 30 seconds or less. Click OK when you’re done.
3. Right click on your newly “clipped” song and select “Convert Selection to AAC.” The song will be re-encoded using the start and stop times determined (If your menu item does not read “Convert Selection to AAC” and reads “Convert Slection to MP3″ (or some other format) please go to iTunes > Preferences > Advanced > Importing and change the “Import Using” drop down menu to “AAC Encoder”).

4. After the song is done encoding navigate to your iTunes Music folder, locate your song, and drag it to your desktop. After the song is on your desktop go back to iTunes and delete the clipped version from you iTunes library (It won’t delete it from your desktop, it will only remove it from iTunes).
5. Go back the song on your desktop and right click on your song and chose “Get info.” Go to the name and extension section and change the extension from .m4a to .m4r (or you can just change the extension right from your desktop)
6. After the extension is changed simply double click on the file to add it to your iTunes library under the ringtones section. Sync your phone with iTunes and you’re done!

iPhone on the move. Real enjoyment

haha. Right now I'm Using my iPhone to blog. Such a great enjoyment. That is what I long waited to do. I'm so happy that the speed of network is fast and the phone quite stable when I browse around(perfer way is use the phone horizontally)
Great phone and more for me to find out. Thank you APPLE again :)

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

I finally got my iphone

Is a day that full of joy when i able to get my Iphone. From now on I able to type when on the move. Give out my though whenever I think of something. Human is imperfect that why everything they made it seem to have it weak point. Iphone is great but some of the feature still not as good as having a real handphone. So I will say it depend on user preference.
Something I still can't figure out is how to completely transfer all your contact from mobile phone. Anyway, I treat it like refresh my contact list by adding contact one by one.
And my singtel account not fully activate yet so not able to surf while on the go.
Will update more on user preference and some picture on the phone. :)

Failure still

Not able to complete my Running Goal due to my poor management of time. Lot of time is waste on doing nothing. And I not able to plan my own schedule. I hope by having an iphone this week will get me to my better life management.

Valentino Rossi got his win at his home town today. He is doing good in his life by change to different tyre manufacturer. He dare to change to get his life better. Why not me?

PC show actually do have alot of great promotion. But problem is you need to have alot of time to stay over in order to catch all the promotion going on. My stand is for those who have time to shop around. You are spending your time to exchange for money. And for those who have money, they able to grab anything anytime when they have free time.

Iphone is coming to my life.

3 more days for my new toy come to my life. Already done some preparation for it like install the latest patch and update my Itune. I know I am too harsh to make this decision as we know that as time go by and more Telcom got the Iphone. It surely will drop the price and upgrade to better package. But I just need it so much to be part of my life whereby I can got into internet anytime while I won't feel boring on the bus as I can watch video and listen to MP3 too.

Got myself into the COMEX PC show at suntec. Not many thing that is selling cheap but the extra gift is attractive. The most impressive LCD TV from LG which can take some hard blow from fist. Amazing feature that you will never worry about the kids to walk so near to this expensive gadget.

Just waiting and waiting....

Anyway, Stoner get his seventh pole again for today race. Let see what will be the end result.

Slapping my own mouth....

Haha... I just can't resist the iphone and I reserve to collect it on 3rd Sept. Since I put in so much effort to prepare this moment like bought my MACBOOK and install Iphone SDK. I really want to get this little gadget ASAP.

I know I not running for so long and only left a few day for me to complete the left over 10km. I will work hard to achieve it.

Friend of mine recommend this show "命中注定我爱你"

Any of my dear sister interested can approach me so that I can start my show rolling. I only get to watch a bit cos I know you gals will keep watching it. Is better not to tell you so much about the story line.

20/80 rules... How much you going to believe?

Do you believe that 20% of what we do equal to 80% of our wealth? Do you believe 20% of people own 80% of the wealth of the world? How we going to apply this rule to our daily life?

I trying to figure out how to do so before I went to book shop and buy the book home to read. If I able to take our 20% of my time to do exercise, I believe I will keep 80% of myself healthy. If I take 20% of my time to think of how to smoother my work flow. I will cut short 80% of the time spend. If I spend 20% of my time again on reading book. I will be able to achieve my 80% of wealth in the near future.

Actually I do receive the email from singtel about my Iphone reservation. But it fall into my junk mailbox and somehow I discover it today. Not sure am I going to get it or not as my programming skill not improving. But I do believe in one thing, as long as I learn more every day. My knowledge will keep multiply itself. 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256 and so on...

Finally I got it

So many time walk pass the same live pub and hear this nice song but not able to catch it lyric.



And finally today I heard it one more time in Kinokuniya. You know what I do when I hear this song? I actually take out my SonyEricsson K810 and start record it using TrackID software which enable user to look for song on net when they send part of the song. I told myself that if I able to find the song using this software when I inside such a noisy bookshop. I will not buy IPHONE. And result is clear, Iphone will out of my life. HAHA

Book I getting this week

Do you know your game well?

From the achievement of my favorite MOTOGP rider Valentino Rossi. I learn that sometime we can't really be ourselves and pushing too hard in our life. Motor cycle attract audience when there are some nice overtake. Since the join in of Casey Stoner who always like to lead his way and play solo in the game. Rossi giving his best to hunt him down and even extend his contract 2 more years. Maybe he finally found someone who is fast enough to match with him or because he want to challenge himself(most likely is the first option). Take last weekend match as example, as Rossi pushing so hard to chase stoner and stoner out of race after few laps due to front wheel not able to grip well. Rossi easily take the lead and claim the crown. Rossi use to start from lower position and start chasing in order to make full entertainment for MOTOGP. It really make the race so boring that every position keep unchanged for the entire race. So boring!!!
Sometime I just wonder should I go all out when I at work or should I adjust my ability in order to have some space for myself. Human tend to request more when you have the ability but they forget how much hard work you put in. And they might even think that everything you do is just so easy.

Good news to all mac user who using MSN

Just found out a new way to use MSN where by you can have the web cam function enable as well as sending Nudge.

It call "amsn" website http://www.amsn-project.net/

I just download and try on the feature. It just simply work and enjoy using it. Microsoft trying to lure people from MAC who using MSN back to windows platform. But that is always a way to break it through. As long as there are demand, there will be market. Nice job by them. Keep improve and hope to see more feature from them.

I really need a mobile handheld device

Iphone is just around the corner.... Praying hard so far. When ever I being on the bus, I just have so much thing going around my head and I simply need to jot them down either for my reference or here (my blog). I hope the mobile plan will be some one time charge for unlimited data transmit so that I will be able to surf net anywhere. Not much worry about the battery life of the phone due to some 3rd party charging device which operate with just 4 AA size battery.

Some nice phrase to share here from book "Why we want you to be RICH"

Most of us have heard about the Three Ds,

  1. Desire
  2. Drive
  3. Discipline
We all know people who have desire - for example a desir to be rich, but they lack either the drive or the discipline or both.

Most of us have heard about the Triple As,

  1. Ambition
  2. Ability
  3. Attitude
We all know people who have ambition, but they never develop their abilities - often because they have a bad attitude.


Most of us have heard about the Triple Es,

  1. Education
  2. Experience
  3. Execution
We all know people who have great educations but lack real-world experience. When they lack real-world experience, they often are unable to execute - perform, get things done in a timely manner, produce results -in the real world.

And most of us have heard of the Four Hs,

  1. Honor
  2. Humility
  3. Humor
  4. Happiness
We all know people who are successful, but attained success without honor. And we all know people who are successful, but lack humility. We also know people who do not have a sense of humor - they have lost their ability to laugh at themselves. And we all know people who are successful, but not happy.

is History important to human race?

I will say yes to the above question due to human have tendency to repeat their mistake. By study our own history, we will be able to point out the Pro and Con. And hopefully we will be able to correct it along the way. But thing don't always turn up this way. I will need to study how ancient civilization fall and learn their pattern in order to gain full potential to invest.

Just have a run with my Nike + ipod. I don't really enjoy this time due to my ipod not able to detect the Nike sensor. Anyway, just got it fix and reminder not to switch off the sensor even it can help you save battery.

I hope that Iphone will launch this month. Will like to see what kind of change to the handphone market and the subscription fee.

Is oil crisis end?

Oil export from IRAQ. US got what they want it to be. Spending so much money on this war to exchange for this result. When ENERGY is UP, economic go DOWN. But when ENERGY go down, our economic climb UP. US take all these into their consideration before their war. If nothing go wrong, US currency will be back to origin exchange rate and oil price will fall. Kind of bright side to look for. But don't forget things always have 2 side. Only those who have financial IQ will gain. Let see who will be the big winner soon.

Story telling

one shot for all the story that suppose to post everyday.

(二)動機的寓言:孩子在為誰而玩

一群孩子在一位老人家門前嬉鬧,叫聲連天。
幾天過去,老人難以忍受。
於是,他出來給了每個孩子25美分,
對他們說:「你們讓這兒變得很熱鬧,
我覺得自己年輕了不少,這點錢表示謝意。」
孩子們很高興。
第二天仍然來了,一如既往地嬉鬧。
老人再出來,給了每個孩子15美分。
他解釋說,自己沒有收入,只能少給一些。
15美分也還可以吧,孩子仍然興高采烈地走了。
第三天,老人只給了每個孩子5美分。
孩子們勃然大怒,
「一天才5美分,知不知道我們多辛苦!」
他們向老人發誓,他們再也不會為他玩了!

心理點評:
你在為誰而「玩」?
這個寓言是蘋果樹寓言的更深一層的答案:
蘋果樹為什麼會自斷經脈,因為它不是為自己而「玩」。
人的動機分兩種:內部動機和外部動機。
如果按照內部動機去行動,我們就是自己的主人。
如果驅使我們的是外部動機,
我們就會被外部因素所左右,成為它的奴隸。

在這個寓言中,老人的算計很簡單,
他將孩子們的內部動機「為自己快樂而玩」
變成了外部動機「為得到美分而玩」,
而他操縱著美分這個外部因素,
所以也操縱了孩子們的行為。
寓言中的老人,像不像是你的老闆、上司?
而美分,像不像是你的工資、
獎金等各種各樣的外部獎勵?
如將外部評價當作參考坐標,
我們的情緒就很容易出現波動。
因為,外部因素我們控制不了,
它很容易偏離我們的內部期望,
讓我們不滿,讓我們牢騷滿腹。
不滿和牢騷等負性情緒讓我們痛苦,
為了減少痛苦,我們就只好降低內部期望,
最常見的方法就是減少工作的努力程度。

一個人之所以會形成外部評價體系,
最主要的原因是父母喜歡控制他。
父母太喜歡使用口頭獎懲、物質獎懲等控制孩子,
而不去理會孩子自己的動機。
久而久之,孩子就忘記了自己的原初動機,
做什麼都很在乎外部的評價。
上學時,他忘記了學習的原初動機———
好奇心和學習的快樂;
工作後,他又忘記了工作的原初動機———
成長的快樂,上司的評價和收入的起伏
成了他工作的最大快樂和痛苦的源頭。

切記:
外部評價系統經常是一種家族遺傳,
但你完全可以打破它,
從現在開始培育自己的內部評價體系,
讓學習和工作變成「為自己而玩」。



(三)規劃的寓言:把一張紙折疊51次

想像一下,你手裡有一張足夠大的白紙。
現在,你的任務是,把它折疊51次。
那麼,它有多高?
一個冰箱?一層樓?
或者一棟摩天大廈那麼高?
不是,差太多了,
這個厚度超過了地球和太陽之間的距離。

心理點評:
到現在,我拿這個寓言問過十幾個人了,
只有兩個人說,這可能是一個想像不到的高度,
而其他人想到的最高的高度也就是一棟摩天大廈那麼高。
折疊51次的高度如此恐怖,
但如果僅僅是將51張白紙疊在一起呢?
這個對比讓不少人感到震撼。
因為沒有方向、缺乏規劃的人生,
就像是將51張白紙簡單疊在一起。
今天做做這個,明天做做那個,
每次努力之間並沒有一個聯繫。
這樣一來,哪怕每個工作都做得非常出色,
它們對你的整個人生來說也不過是簡單的疊加而已。
當然,人生比這個寓言更複雜一些。
有些人,一生認定一個簡單的方向而堅定地做下去,
他們的人生最後達到了別人不可企及的高度。
譬如,我一個朋友的人生方向是英語,
他花了十數年努力,
僅單詞的記憶量就達到了十幾萬之多,
在這一點上達到了一般人無法企及的高度。
也有些人,他們的人生方向也很明確,
譬如開公司做老闆,這樣,他們就需要很多技能———
專業技能、管理技能、溝通技能、決策技能等等。
他們可能會在一開始嘗試做做這個,
又嘗試做做那個,沒有一樣是特別精通的,
但最後,開公司做老闆的這個方向
將以前的這些看似零散的努力統合到一起,
這也是一種複雜的人生折疊,而不是簡單的疊加。

切記:
看得見的力量比看不見的力量更有用。
現在,流行從看不見的地方尋找答案,
譬如潛能開發,譬如成功學,
以為我們的人生要靠一些奇跡才能得救。
但是,在我看來,一位咨詢師說得更正確,
「通過規劃利用好現有的能力遠比挖掘所謂的潛能更重要。」


(四)逃避的寓言:小貓逃開影子的招數

「影子真討厭!」
小貓湯姆和托比都這樣想,
「我們一定要擺脫它。」
然而,無論走到哪裡,
湯姆和托比發現,只要一出現陽光,
它們就會看到令它們抓狂的自己的影子。
不過,湯姆和托比最後終於都找到了各自的解決辦法。
湯姆的方法是,永遠閉著眼睛。
托比的辦法則是,永遠待在其他東西的陰影裡。

心理點評:
這個寓言說明,
一個小的心理問題是如何變成更大的心理問題的。
可以說,一切心理問題都源自對事實的扭曲。
什麼事實呢?主要就是那些令我們痛苦的負性事件。
因為痛苦的體驗,我們不願意去面對這個負性事件。
但是,一旦發生過,
這樣的負性事件就注定要伴隨我們一生,
我們能做的,最多不過是將它們壓抑到潛意識中去,
這就是所謂的忘記。
但是,它們在潛意識中仍然會一如既往地發揮作用。
並且,哪怕我們對事實遺忘得再厲害,
這些事實所伴隨的痛苦仍然會襲擊我們,
讓我們莫名其妙地傷心難過,而且無法抑制。
這種疼痛讓我們進一步努力去逃避。
發展到最後,通常的解決辦法就是這兩個:
要麼,我們像小貓湯姆一樣,
徹底扭曲自己的體驗,
對生命中所有重要的負性事實都視而不見;
要麼,我們像小貓托比一樣,乾脆投靠痛苦,
把自己的所有事情都搞得非常糟糕,
既然一切都那麼糟糕,
那個讓自己最傷心的原初事件就不是那麼疼了。
某心理咨詢師說,99%的吸毒者有過痛苦的遭遇。
他們之所以吸毒,是為了讓自己逃避這些痛苦。
這就像是躲進陰影裡,痛苦的事實是一個魔鬼,
為了躲避這個魔鬼,乾脆把自己賣給更大的魔鬼。

還有很多酗酒的成人,
他們有過一個酗酒而暴虐的老爸,
挨過老爸的不少折磨。為了忘記這個痛苦,
他們學會了同樣的方法。

除了這些看得見的錯誤方法外,
我們人類還發明了無數種形形色色的方法去逃避痛苦,
弗洛伊德將這些方式稱為心理防禦機制。
太痛苦的時候,這些防禦機制是必要的,
但糟糕的是,如果心理防禦機制對事實扭曲得太厲害,
它會帶出更多的心理問題,譬如強迫症、
社交焦慮症、多重人格,甚至精神分裂症等。
真正抵達健康的方法只有一個———直面痛苦。
直面痛苦的人會從痛苦中得到許多意想不到的收穫,
它們最終會變成當事人的生命財富。

切記:
陰影和光明一樣,都是人生的財富。
一個最重要的心理規律是,
無論多麼痛苦的事情,你都是逃不掉的。
你只能去勇敢地面對它,化解它,超越它,
最後和它達成和解。如果你自己暫時缺乏力量,
你可以尋找幫助,尋找親友的幫助,
或尋找專業的幫助,
讓你信任的人陪著你一起去面對這些痛苦的事情。

美國心理學家羅傑斯曾是最孤獨的人,
但當他面對這個事實並化解後,
他成了真正的人際關係大師;
美國心理學家弗蘭克
有一個暴虐而酗酒的繼父和一個糟糕的母親,
但當他挑戰這個事實並最終從心中原諒了父母後,
他成了治療這方面問題的專家;
日本心理學家森田正馬曾是嚴重的神經症患者,
但他通過挑戰這個事實並最終發明出了森田療法……
他們生命中最痛苦的事實最後都變成了他們最重要的財富。
你,一樣也可以做到。



(五)行動的寓言———螃蟹、貓頭鷹和蝙蝠

螃蟹、貓頭鷹和蝙蝠去上惡習補習班。
數年過後,它們都順利畢業並獲得博士學位。
不過,螃蟹仍橫行,
貓頭鷹仍白天睡覺晚上活動,蝙蝠仍倒懸。

心理點評:
這是黃永玉大師的一個寓言故事,
它的寓意很簡單:行動比知識重要。
用到心理健康中,這個寓言也發人深省。
心理學的知識堪稱博大精深。
但是,再多再好的心理學知識
也不能自動幫助一個人變得更健康。
其實,我知道的一些學過多年心理學的人士,
他們學心理學的目的之一就是要治自己,
但學了這麼多年以後,他們的問題依舊。
之所以出現這種情況,一個很重要的原因是,
他們沒有身體力行,那樣知識就只是遙遠的知識,
知識並沒有化成他們自己的生命體驗。

我的一個喜歡心理學的朋友,
曾被多名心理學人士認為不敏感,不適合學心理學。
但事實證明,這種揣測並不正確。
他是不夠敏感,但他有一個非常大的優點:
知道一個好知識,就立即在自己的生命中去執行。
這樣一來,那些遙遠的知識就變成了真切的生命體驗,
他不必「懂」太多,就可以幫助自己,並幫助很多人。

如果說,高敏感度是一種天才素質,
那麼高行動力是更重要的天才素質。

這個寓言還可以引申出另一種含義:
不要太指望神秘的心理治療的魔力。
最重要的力量永遠在你自己的身上,
奧秘的知識、玄妙的潛能開發、炫目的成功學等等,
都遠不如你自己身上已有的力量重要。
我們習慣去外面尋找答案,去別人那裡尋找力量,
結果忘記了力量就在自己身上。

切記:
別人的知識不能自動地拯救你。
如果一些連珠的妙語打動了你,
如果一些文字或新信條啟發了你。
那麼,這些別人的文字和經驗都只是一個開始,
更重要的是,
你把你以為好的知識真正運用到你自己的生命中去。

猶太哲學家馬丁·布伯的這句話,
我一直認為是最重要的:
「你必須自己開始!假如你自己不以積極的愛去深入生存,
假如你不以自己的方式去為自己揭示生存的意義,
那麼對你來說,生存就將依然是沒有意義的。」



(六)放棄的寓言:蜜蜂與鮮花

玫瑰花枯萎了,蜜蜂仍拚命吮吸,
因為它以前從這朵花上吮吸過甜蜜。
但是,現在在這朵花上,蜜蜂吮吸的是毒汁。
於是,它吸了一口就抬起頭來
蜜蜂憤憤不平地向整個世界抱怨,
為什麼味道變了?!不知道是什麼原因,
蜜蜂振動翅膀,飛高了一點。
這時,它發現,枯萎的玫瑰花周圍,處處是鮮花。

心理點評:
這是關於愛情的寓言,
是一位年輕的語文老師的真實感悟。
有一段時間,她失戀了,很痛苦,
一直想約我聊聊,希望我的心理學知識能給她一些幫助。
我們一直約時間,但快兩個月過去了,
兩人的時間總不能碰巧湊在一起。

最後一次約她,她說:
「謝謝!不用了,我想明白了。」
原來,她剛從九寨溝回來。
失戀的痛苦仍在糾纏她,讓她神情恍惚,
不能享受九寨溝的美麗。不經意的時候,
她留意到一隻小蜜蜂正在一朵鮮花上採蜜。
那一剎那間,她腦子裡電閃雷鳴般地出現了一句話:
「枯萎的鮮花上,蜜蜂只能吮吸到毒汁。」

當然,大自然中的小蜜蜂不會這麼做,
只有人類才這麼傻,她這句話裡的蜜蜂當然指她自己。
這一剎那,她頓悟出了放棄的道理。
以前,她想讓我幫她走出來,
但翅膀其實就長在她自己身上,她想飛就能飛。

放棄並不容易,愛情中的放棄尤其令人痛苦。
因為,愛情是對我們幼小時候的親子關係的複製。
幼小的孩子,無論從哪個方面看,
都離不開爸爸媽媽。如果爸爸媽媽完全否定他,
那對他來說就意味著死亡,這是終極的傷害和恐懼。
我們多多少少都曾體驗過被爸爸媽媽否定的痛苦和恐懼,
所以,當愛情———
這個親子關係的複製品再一次
讓我們體驗這種痛苦和恐懼時,
我們的情緒很容易變得非常糟糕。

不過,愛情和親子關係相比,
有一個巨大的差別:小時候,我們無能為力,
一切都是父母說了算;但現在,我們長大了,
我們有力量自己去選擇自己的命運。
可以說,童年時,我們是沒有翅膀的小蜜蜂,
但現在,我們有了一雙強有力的翅膀了。

但是,當深深地陷入愛情時,
我們會回歸童年,
我們會忘記自己有一雙可以飛翔的翅膀。
等我們自己悟出這一點後,
愛情就不再會是對親子關係的自動複製,
我們的愛情就獲得了自由,就有了放棄的力量。

切記:
愛情是兩個人的事情,兩個完全平等的、
有獨立人格的人的事情。你可以努力,
但不是說,你努力了就一定會有效果,
因為另一個人,你並不能左右。

所以,無論你多麼在乎一次愛情,
如果另一個人堅決要離開你,請尊重他的選擇。

並且,還要記得,你不再是童年,
只能聽憑痛苦的折磨。
你已成人,你有一雙強有力的翅膀,
你完全可以飛出一個已經變成毒藥的關係。




(七)親密的寓言:獨一無二的玫瑰

小王子的星球上忽然綻放了一朵嬌艷的玫瑰花。
以前,這個星球上只有一些無名的小花,
小王子從來沒有見過這麼美麗的花,
他愛上這朵玫瑰,細心地呵護它。
那一段日子,他以為,這是一朵唯一的花,
只有他的星球上才有,其他的地方都不存在。
然而,等他來到地球上,
發現僅僅一個花園裡就有5000朵完全一樣的這種花朵。
這時,他才知道,他有的只是一朵普通的花。

一開始,這個發現,讓小王子非常傷心。
但最後,小王子明白,儘管世界上有無數朵玫瑰花,
但他的星球上那朵,仍然是獨一無二的,
因為那朵玫瑰花,他澆灌過,給它罩過花罩,
用屏風保護過,除過它身上的毛蟲,
還傾聽過它的怨艾和自詡,聆聽過它的沉默……
一句話,他馴服了它,它也馴服了他,
它是他獨一無二的玫瑰。

「正因為你為你的玫瑰花費了時間,
這才使你的玫瑰變得如此重要。」
一隻被小王子馴服的狐狸對他說。

心理點評:
這是法國名著《小王子》中一個有名的寓言故事,
我曾讀過十數遍,但仍然是直到2005年才明白這一點。
面對著5000朵玫瑰花,小王子說:
「你們很美,但你們是空虛的,沒有人能為你們去死。」
只有傾注了愛,親密關係才有意義。
但是,現在我們越來越流行空虛的「親密關係」,
最典型的就是因網絡而氾濫的一夜情。

我們急著去擁有。
彷彿是,每多擁有過一朵玫瑰,
自己的生命價值就多了一分。
網絡時代,擁有過數十名情人,
已不再是太罕見的事情。
但我所瞭解的這些濫情者,
沒有一個是不空虛的。
他們並不享受關係,他們只享受征服。

「征服慾望越強的人,
對於關係的親密度越沒有興趣。」
廣州白雲心理醫院的咨詢師榮瑋齡說,
「沒有擁有前,他們會想盡一切辦法拉近關係的距離。
但一旦擁有後,他們會迅速喪失對這個親密關係的興趣。
征服慾望越強,喪失的速度越快。」

對於這樣的人,
一個玫瑰園比起一朵獨一無二的玫瑰花來,
更有吸引力。

然而,關係的美,
正在於兩人的投入程度和被馴服程度。
當兩個人都自然而然地去投入,
自然而然地情願被馴服後,
關係就會變成人生養料,
讓一個人的生命變得更充盈、更美好。

但是,無論多麼親密。
小王子仍是小王子,玫瑰仍是玫瑰,
他們仍然是兩個個體。
如果玫瑰不讓小王子旅行,
或者小王子旅行時非將玫瑰花帶在身上,
兩者一定要黏在一起,
關係就不再是享受,而會變成一個累贅。

切記:
一個既親密而又相互獨立的關係,
勝於一千個一般的關係。這樣的關係,
會把我們從不可救藥的孤獨感中拯救出來,
是我們生命中最重要的一種救贖。
如果不曾體驗過,你就無法知道這種關係的美

7 story on 7 different days to share.

(一)成長的寓言:做一棵永遠成長的蘋果樹  

一棵蘋果樹,終於結果了。
第一年,它結了10個蘋果,9個被拿走,自己得到1個。
對此,蘋果樹憤憤不平,於是自斷經脈,拒絕成長。
第二年,它結了5個蘋果,4個被拿走,自己得到1個。
「哈哈,去年我得到了10%,今年得到20%!翻了一番。」
這棵蘋果樹心理平衡了。
但是,它還可以這樣:繼續成長。

譬如,第二年,它結了100個果子,
被拿走90個,自己得到10個。
很可能,它被拿走99個,自己得到1個。
但沒關係,它還可以繼續成長,第三年結1000個果子……
其實,得到多少果子不是最重要的。

最重要的是,蘋果樹在成長!
等蘋果樹長成參天大樹的時候,
那些曾阻礙它成長的力量都會成為小問題,
不要太在乎果子,成長是最重要的。

心理點評
你是不是一個已自斷經脈的打工族?
剛開始工作的時候,你才華橫溢,意氣風發,
相信「天生我才必有用」。
但現實很快敲了你幾個悶棍,
或許,你為單位做了大貢獻沒人重視;
或許,只得到口頭重視但卻得不到實惠;
或許……總之,你覺得就像那棵蘋果樹,
結出的果子自己只享受到了很小一部分,
與你的期望相差甚遠。
於是,你憤怒、你懊惱、你牢騷滿腹……
最終,你決定不再那麼努力,
讓自己的所做去匹配自己的所得。
幾年過去後,你一反省,發現現在的你,
已經沒有剛工作時的激情和才華了。

「老了,成熟了。」我們習慣這樣自嘲。
但實質是,你已停止成長了。
這樣的故事,在我們身邊比比皆是。
之所以犯這種錯誤,是因為我們忘記生命是一個歷程,

是一個整體,我們覺得自己已經成長過了,
現在是到該結果子的時候了。
我們太過於在乎一時的得失,
而忘記了成長才是最重要的。
好在,這不是金庸小說裡的自斷經脈。
我們隨時可以放棄這樣做,繼續走向成長之路。

切記:
如果你是一個打工族,遇到了不懂管理、
野蠻管理或錯誤管理的上司或企業文化,
那麼,提醒自己一下,
千萬不要因為激憤和滿腹牢騷而自斷經脈。
不論遇到什麼事情,
都要做一棵永遠成長的蘋果樹,
因為你的成長永遠比每個月拿多少錢重要。
