@~@ General
生命的偉大在於他的微小; 生命的力量在於他的脆弱; 生命的永恆在於他的短暫. J.L. facebook.

@~@ Scientifc pursuits
磨刀不误砍柴工。It means it is not a waste of time to sharpen your knife before chopping the wood. There is also another quite similar saying: 工欲善其事,必先利其器, meaning “a worker needs to improve his tools before getting hands on his job”. (Thanks to Y.L. for sharing).
International exposure is v. impt in education, to helps us to break away from the impression that there is only 1 way of doing things. We also become more receptive to new ideas & perspectives.

@~@ Artistic pursuits
Dreams are like the paints of a great artist. Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas. Believing, is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality. Unknown.

@~@ Miscellaneous (sorry, I was too lazy to cluster them)
Can you live with your lover? Well, we can live with many people.
Can you live without your lover? Then, he is indeed your soul mate.

“Positive people have higher self esteem. This makes them display positive behaviour which makes others like them more.”

There is something nice about everyone, its just that we might not have seen it yet.

Happy New Year 2011

I wish you all Happy New Year 2011 with the Optimistic Creed by Christian Larson

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Happy Valentine 2009: Happy memories

leave a comment »

These are from my happy book (Credit Suisse First Boston notebook):

July 2007: We went to Dear’s sister house, danced together along with jazz, sat at rocking chair to gaze at blue sky, white puffy clouds, and greeneries.

July 2007: Mum cooked us tasty claypot rice, we watched nice animation entitled Howl’s moving castle, I watched Nuovo Cinema Paradiso at my undergrad university.

July 2007: My 1st tandem-bike ride with Dear. My sister’s girlfriend said I look like Vivian Chow.

July 2007: My brother still remembers some toys I gave him last time, from my poor highly-disciplined high-school days.

July 2007: Papa brought me to the 5th floor – a realization of his dream. We saw beautiful blue sky with white thin soft long cloud, with sunset background, a rare thing in my J hometown.

April 2008: Dear sent me flowers: white roses, pink chrysanthemuns, so lovely.

These are from citi notebook:

March 2008: Penguin makes people happy. Yes, we love the Happy Feet!

❤ ❤ ❤ our 3rd Valentine together! Dear sent me a dozen of red maroon roses, they are so beautiful, as lovely as Dear~!

@~@ God is with us

No storms can shake my inmost calm. I sketched the Marina skyscrapers landmarks from the Esplanade library.

O God, help me all day every day to look on the bright side of things, and to see the best in people.

@~@ On my artistic pursuit:

2007: When we are taking photographs, we should think that they are our love letter to our beloved ones, and our respects to beautiful sceneries created by God and to people whom we photograph.

@~@ Uncle Dale’s advice:

If you want to stop worrying & start living, remember … COUNT OUR BLESSINGS – not our troubles!

@~@ Subconscious talks (April 2008):

There are hug sources of happiness inside us, e.g. giving.

We are travellers. Every scene is so amazing when we travel.

Be observer (don’t get flattered by cheap praises, don’t be sad by criticisms)

To learn to see the big picture in spatio-temporal context.
