Once Upon a Time in China soundtrack.

Message: perseverance

Once upon a time in China
〜男儿当自强〜
傲气面对万重浪热血像那红日光
胆似铁打骨如精钢
胸襟百千丈眼光万里长
我发奋图强做好汉
做个好汉子每天要自强
热血男儿汉比太阳更光
让海天为我聚能量
去开天辟地为我理想去闯
看碧波高壮又看碧空广阔浩气杨
我是男儿当自强
昂步挺胸大家作栋梁做好汉
用我百点热耀出千分光
做个好汉子热血热肠热比太阳更光
让海天为我聚能量
去开天辟地为我理想去闯
看碧波高壮又看碧空广阔浩气杨
我是男儿当自强
昂步挺胸大家作栋梁做好汉
用我百点热耀出千分光
做个好汉子热血热肠热比太阳更光
做个好汉子热血热肠热比太阳更光

Mom is the Best

leave a comment »

A friend of mine shared with me how her husband and her confinement nanny walked out their home,
to see firework next door.

My friend thought that
both her husband and her confinement nanny
are selfish and irresponsible.

For the sake of their pleasure of seeing 15-minute of firework,
they abandoned my friend and the baby.

At that time,
my friend suffered from illness,
and doctor adviced my friend not to get close to her baby.

However,
after the firework had been shot,
she heard the baby’s cry,
getting louder and louder.

She thought that the confinement nanny was trying to console the baby,
to prevent the baby from being scared,
but when she went to the baby’s room,
nobody was there.

She was upset,
and took the risk to carry her baby in her chest,
so that the baby would not be over-scared,
in spite of what the doctor said.

I could understand my friend’s unahppiness.
Her experience reminds me on
世上只有妈妈好,
which means Mom is the Best.

If I were her,
I would be disappointed with her husband and confinement nanny too.
But I tried to console my friend,
her husband was still unused to having a baby,
he has not fully developed his protective and nurturing instinct,
please give him some time.
Well, about the confinement nanny,
I do not know what to say.
Any suggestion?

Talking about Mom is the Best,
here is a song,

The lyrics:

1.
世 上 只有 妈妈 好
Shì shàng zhǐyǒu māma hǎo
Earth above only mom great (Only mom is great in the world)

有 妈 的 孩子 像 *块 宝
Yǒu mā de háizi xiàng *kuài bǎo
Has mom kid like a gem (A kid who has a mom is like a gem)
*块 kuài, classifier for objects like cake, soap…

投 进 妈妈的 怀抱
Tóu jìn māma de huáibào
Casts into mom’s arms

幸福 享 不 了
Xìngfú xiǎng bù liǎo
Happiness enjoy without end (Enjoys the happiness without end)

2.
世 上 只有 妈妈 好
Shì shàng zhǐyǒu māma hǎo
Earth above only mom great (Only mom is great in the world)

没 妈 的 孩子 像 *根 草
Méi mā de háizi xiàng *gēn cǎo
Without mom kid like a grass (A kid who has no mom is like grass)
*根 gēn, classifier for long slender objects.

离开 妈妈的 怀抱
Líkāi māma de huáibào
Leave mom’s arms

幸福 那里 找
Xìngfú nǎlǐ zhǎo
Happiness where find (Where to find the happiness)

3.
世 上 只有 妈妈 好
Shì shàng zhǐyǒu māma hǎo
Earth above only mom great (Only mom is great in the world)

有 妈 的 孩子 像 块 宝
Yǒu mā de háizi xiàng kuài bǎo
Has mom kid like a gem (A kid who has a mom is like a gem)

投 进 妈妈的 怀抱
Tóu jìn māma de huáibào
Cast into mom’s arms

梦 里 也 会 笑
Mèng lǐ yě huì xiào
Dream inside also will smile (Will also smile in the dreams)

Christmas 2012: I think I am a geek

leave a comment »

While people are in the mood of celebrating Christmas and New Year, I am finding myself to be more motivated and hardworking than ever.

I had shopped for Christmas gifts early (I did it simultaneously when I shopped for groceries and there were sales / discounts). No last minute shopping for me. Thank you for the new bag and book for my Christmas gifts!

I am learning to forgive my boss who is dragging me down. He is slowing the progress of my work. I am also learning about patience.

Due to medical reason, I am not allowed by my doctor (and mother) to go out (including to go to my workplace, church). Fortunately, I can still work using my laptop, read, reflect and think. Pretty happy.

Counting my blessings:
@~@ Finished reading and understanding a couple of books.
@~@ Have consulted and learned from my mentors more than in 2011: the super kind MT, Uncle Zhou, Aunt Ning, Aunt SQ (Dec), Uncle Toni, Uncle Roger (Nov), Brother Adam, Brother Tim.
@~@ Planned for the education of LS and obtained the approval from the father of LS. See pink 2012 notebook page 51.
@~@ Reflected on my lessons (Always remember that there are no absolute failures, but temporary setbacks), past achievements (e.g. PhD), and future plans (including being a business-owner entrepreneur, an agent of positive change).

An important lesson:
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

@~@ Have fed myself with positive food for mind and soul (almost daily and every morning). This is highly important because the Russian psychologist Blyuma Zeigarnik discovered early in this century that human beings remember unresolved problems, frustrations, failures, and rejections much better than we remember our successes and completions.
@~@ Being hugged every morning and night by my man. Tips: Women need to be loved, men need to be respected.
@~@ Sent personalized Christmas cards to my friends.
@~@ Ate Shepherd pie and banana pear yoghurt for the breakfast on Christmas Eve. Shepherd pie reminds me on cold and wet England in the winter.
@~@ No need to spend time on commuting means I can sleep more.
@~@ Delivered an almost 90-minute of talk (based on my notes from books I read in 2012) to LS, with breaks in between. Tired. I must train my stamina because I will deliver more inspiring talks in the future. See books2012.txt
@~@ Dressed up myself on Christmas day, though I could not wear my engagement ring (hopefully for temporary). I love the progress of applying make-up, transforming myself into more beautiful than ever.
@~@ Clean flat (since Dec 23rd) thanks to the cleaning lady. We are sleeping on my favorite bed sheets with the pattern of pink flowers and purple leaves. So far, we only have 3 bed sheets.
@~@ Not being able to attend a Christmas mass, I listened to "On Eagle’s Wings". Always remember that "He will raise you up on eagle’s wings".

@~@ Listened to the songs by Mindy Gledhill. Gothic. Soothing. Fairy Tales.

Finally, Merry Christmas to the readers of Blueroselady. I love you!

Make us true servants

leave a comment »

Make us true servants to all those in need,
Filled with compassion in thought, word and deed;
Loving our neighbour, whatever the cost,
Feeding the hungry and finding the lost.

Lord, make us prophets to cry out the way,
telling the nations of mercy’s new day.
Let us break barriers of hatred and scorn,
speaking of hope to all people for lorn

Lord, make us healers of body and mind;
give us your power to bring sight to the blind;
Love to the love- less and gladness for pain,
Filling all hearts with the joy of your name.

Music for morning exercise

leave a comment »

 

I use the length of the music to keep track on how long I exercise.

***

沧海一声笑 黄沾 徐克 罗大佑

沧海笑 
滔滔两岸潮 
浮沉随浪记今朝
苍天笑 
纷纷世上潮 
谁负谁胜出天知晓
江山笑 
烟雨遥 
涛浪淘尽红尘俗事知多少
清风笑 
竟惹寂寥 
豪情还剩 
一襟晚照
啦……
沧海笑 
滔滔两岸潮 
浮沉随浪记今朝
苍天笑 
纷纷世上潮 
谁负谁胜出天知晓
江山笑 
烟雨遥 
涛浪淘尽红尘俗事知多少
苍生笑 
不再寂寥 
豪情仍在痴痴笑笑

4 minutes

***

古月照今塵

一部春秋史 千年孤臣泪
成败难长久 兴亡在转瞬间
总在茶余后 供于后人说
多少辛酸  话因果

百战旧河山 古来功难全
江山几局残 荒城重拾何年
文章写不尽 幽幽沧桑史
悲欢岁月  尽无情

长江长千里 黄河水不停
江山依旧人事已非 
只剩古月照今尘
莫负古圣贤 效历朝英雄
再造一个辉煌的汉疆和唐土

再造一个辉煌的汉疆和唐土

叶倩文 – 潇洒走一会

潇洒= chic, natural, unrestrained

天地悠悠 过客匆匆 潮起又潮落
恩恩怨怨 生死白头 几人能看透

红尘啊滚滚痴痴啊情深聚散终有时
留一半清醒留一半醉至少梦里有你追随

我拿青春赌明天 你用真情换此生
岁月不知人间多少的忧伤何不潇洒走一回

4 minutes

真心真意过一生 (sincerely live a life)

看世界
忙忙碌碌
何苦走这不归路
熙熙攘攘为名利
何不开开心心交朋友
时时刻刻忙算计
谁知算来算去算自己
亲亲我我难长久
何不平平淡淡活到老
真真假假怨人生
不如轻轻松松过一生
是非恩怨随风付诸一笑
聚散离合本是人生难免
爱情也许会老
真心永远年轻
有我有你有明天
人生短短何必计较太多
成败得失不用放在心头
今宵对月高歌
明朝海阔天空
真心真意过一生

From Tiger Leaping Gorge to Guilin

leave a comment »

After personally experiencing the Tiger Leaping Gorge, I want to visit Guilin.
In the past, I was satisfied with my experience in Halong Bay, but now I really want to visit Guilin. Not in the year of 2012, but I believe some time in the future.

Born to travel.
Born to be inspired and to inspire.

古月照今塵
作詞: 譚健常 作曲:小軒
原唱﹕文章

一部春秋史 千年孤臣淚
成敗難長久 興亡在轉瞬間
總在茶餘後 供於後人說
多少辛酸  話因果

百戰舊河山 古來功難全
江山幾局殘 荒城重拾何年
文章寫不盡 幽幽滄桑史
悲歡歲月  盡無情

長江長千里 黃河水不停
江山依舊人事已非 
只剩古月照今塵
莫負古聖賢 效歷朝英雄
再造一個輝煌的漢疆和唐土

再造一個輝煌的漢疆和唐土
