Dance Partner, Anyone?

I always wanted to have a dog, a pig, or any pet with high intelligence that is smart enough to play with me. How I wish I have a dance partner like Keeper!

Sherlock Holmes

小时候,福尔摩斯的故事是各大儿童杂志、少年杂志必登的故事。于是,我对福尔摩斯有种非常根深蒂固的印象:戴着画家帽、抽着烟斗、机智幽默的。
当他们宣布说Robert Downey Jr.将饰演Sherlock Holmes时,有点儿雀跃。Robert Downey Jr.虽然没有大侦探的模样,机智幽默他却肯定胜任。
今天看了trailer,发觉还有Jude Law呢,真期待哦!

My Sister's Keeper

我喜欢Jodi Picoult的书,她总是把人们放在道德的天秤上,你明明是在读着小说,却免不了要做一系列的思考。她的故事写得细腻又紧凑,通常一提上来,就放不下了。
我看的第一本Jodi Picoult的书,正是My Sister's Keeper。刚才无意中发现,原来这本书被拍成电影了,很快就会上映。
期待哦!

坚强的芯荟

芯荟又离开ICU了。
医生此刻才说,当时医生们都以为她再也无法活着离开ICU了……可见她求生存的意志力坚强得很呢!现在她又在普通病房啦~真为她感到骄傲!

哦,还有,我之前说错了,刚刚证实,她患的,其实叫做sulfite oxidase deficiency(亚硫酸氧化缺乏症)。要是有谁有什么秘方,请在留言处给我留下资料。谢谢!

我是Guru

其实,老实说,虽然我明知道这些“心理测验”只是游戏,但当它说"You are the Guru",我还真的偷偷地‘暗爽’。无他,我真的,诚心的希望,我可以尽我的能力,让我身边的每一个人都找到自己的人生目标。我希望自己在成长的同时,也有一群朋友与我一同成长……




You Are the Guru



You are a naturally good counselor. You are inspiring, encouraging, and compassionate.

You are eager to help everyone who crosses your path, even those who don't want to be helped.

You are a natural healer. People feel at peace when they are with you.

You are so good for people, in fact, that they go through withdrawal once you're gone.

You quietly do your own thing, without openly resisting. You secretly try to fix every problem.

Your biggest regret is not being able to help as many people as you'd like.

Still about our Cousin's Day Out

Well, it has been weeks and we are still very excited when we talk about our Cousin's Day out on 9th May. This round, En En made a video and uploaded in Metacafe:

芯荟,你一定会挨过这一关!

我一直都想让我的部落开开心心的,好让大家相信世界美好,可是,我今天要破例……

表姐的女儿芯荟在出世的时候,我们在黄姚。收到表姐的短讯,我们都开心得很。回来后各自买了礼物去看看我们可爱的表侄女。她有一种倔强调皮的表情,特别讨人爱。

出世后五十多天,竟然突然间因严重痉挛抽搐而入院。南华医院的儿童专科尝试了一天,说找不倒病因,提议表姐把女儿送去槟城中央医院,因为全马只有三位儿童脑科专科医生,而北马就只有一位。到了中央医院,医生折腾了好久,依然找不出病因。

我第一次到医院看她的时候,她还在ICU。她痉挛得太严重,麻醉药药量得去到她自己无法呼吸方能阻止她痉挛。结果她身上有氧气管、食管、以及各种各样我们叫不出名字的仪器。瘦小的她在小孩儿ICU病床上显得那么脆弱,小手都被针管刺得肿了,再没地方插,结果插在脚底。心疼死了。我什么都不能做,只会偷偷的擦眼泪。

后来辗转听说她渐渐复原(但当时还不知道病因),我再去看她的时候已经在普通病房了。好转了,就只是还得以胶管喂食。大家以为一切好转,但她终究还是再次进了ICU。那时候,听说医生已经宣布证实她的脑在痉挛时因缺氧而损伤了。

今天,放工回家,听爸爸说医生终于公布了病因。爸转述,说她患上的是基因病,体内缺少一种分解蛋白质enzyme。据说她这病,全世界证实的病例只有50宗,在亚洲只有两宗,第一宗在香港,第二宗就是芯荟了。我刚刚在网络上略微找了找,我猜应该就是Trifunctional protein deficiency吧?(明天才能找杰问个清楚)

西医的历史毕竟很短,医生已经束手无策的事,我相信世界上各地民间必定还有许多秘方。有谁曾经听说过这种病情、或知道有什么秘方、或有任何关于此类病情的朋友们,是不是可以在留言处给我一些资料?

Extraordinary-Close-Cousins



Wei and Yuan have blogged about "My Beloved Cousins" and "I Love My Cousins", and now it's my turn.

I have been very busy recently so even though I wanted to blog about our "Mother's Day" celebration (but I think we all have more fun than the mums), I kept dragging it and now I'm not in the mood anymore.

I wanted to make a video or slideshow or something special for all the photos that we took on 9th May 2009 (our Mother's Day celebration) but until now I don't have all the photos with me yet so I decided to skip.

But still, I have to tell the whole world, how lucky I am to be extraordinary close with my cousins. We did not physically grow up together (and I'm way too old to 'grow up' together with anyone of them) but we have this special bonding that whenever we are together, there's no gap between us. We hang out with our cousins a lot (Sara, Steven, Sonia, sorry, you are too far away ;p), shopping, movies, food...... We share our latest projects, talk about our dreams......Sometimes we day dreaming together, share our 'life experience'......
And most important of all, we always have FUN together!

I'm Spirit and A Dreamer




You Are Spirit



You are resilient, hopeful, and inspiring. You have a lot of emotional, physical, and mental energy.

You nurture and nourish yourself. You know that you need fulfillment and downtime if you want to be your best.

You stay present in every moment. You don't allow yourself to be distracted or flustered.

You appreciate the life you have been given. You embrace all that is beautiful in the world.






You Are a Dreamer



You are primarily concerned with possibilities. You tend to be a fanciful person.

All of the world's opportunities sometimes overwhelm you.

You are obsessed with ideas and tend to be a big thinker. Theories interest you greatly.

You crave intellectual stimulation. You are drawn to a philosophical way of life.

我的风清扬

在金庸所有的人物当中,我最向往的,要数风清扬了。那是一种怎样的良师,让人跳开世俗拘束,发挥自己一切潜能!那是比伯乐更让千里马期待的人物!

风清扬行云流水、随意所之。他虽然不如令狐冲那么随意潇洒、跳脱不羁、洒脱豁达(年轻时或许和令狐冲没什么两样),然而,正因为他的教诲,让令狐冲终于正视自己的本性,开了窍,给自己找了一个自我肯定的理由。两人一老一少性情相投,在短短一阵的相处当中,成了真正的莫逆之交。

从小,我就深信总有一天我会碰见一位风清扬一样的人物,清逸的、飞扬的(而我总是希望自己可以像令狐冲一样成为真正绝顶人物)。我毕竟还是碰上了。

我找到一个愿意教我独孤九剑的高人,相信自己的美好人生会变得更美好。

你呢?

What Does My Home Say About Me?

I hate myself for addicted to blogthings, really!




Your Home Says That You Feel Unsettled and Free



You come across as very intellectual. People take your wisdom seriously.

Your hygiene is passable, but you may be hiding some dirty secrets.

You are a very domestic person. You enjoy decorating, cooking, and making things homey.

You are a very nurturing person. You find meaning in taking care of others.

You don't feel settled in your life yet. You are scrambling to figure things out.

You are a very self sufficient person. You can get along well without much help.

Your friends see you as accommodating, peaceful, and forgiving.

I'm Free Spirit too? Just Like Chek Ling??




You Are Carefree



You are always brimming with excitement and possibilities. You love to experiment and learn.

You like to go wherever life takes you. You have no rules or routine.



You are a true free spirit. You do whatever works. If what works changes, you'll change too.

You don't value structure or order much in your life. It kills the spontaneity.

金色的我(^^)




Your Power Color Is Gold



At Your Highest:

You are engrossed in passions that mentally stimulate you.



At Your Lowest:

You seek thrills and neglect what's important in your life.



In Love:

You see dating as adventure and approach it with an open attitude.



How You're Attractive:

Your passion for life makes others passionate about you.



Your Eternal Question:

"Am I Having Fun?"

九周年纪念

很多时候,我们以为会是短暂的事,一转眼,仿佛已是永恒。
这是我毕业后的第一份工作,原以为做做一两年便走,但我胸无大志,一不为钱,二不为前途,就是贪恋这儿简单的人际关系,以及同事间紧密的情谊。一晃,也就九年了。
今年唯一遗憾的是,这九年来一起陪我庆祝“周年纪念日”的朋友都在今年离开了。我再不能放肆的从办公室的这一边向着另一边大喊“happy aniversary!”

Addicted Again

Sometimes I really cannot 'tahan' myself, being hopelessly addicted to mindless activities such as Blogthings, Youtube and Facebook. I am supposed to work on a presentation now, but when I'm doing some research online, I "accidentally" clicked on Facebook, then ended up in Youtube and Blogthings. Sigh..... Wish I have better self-control......



You Are Excited



You are vibrant and lively. You bring passion to everything that you do.

You are very animated and energetic. People find you dazzling and charming.

Beyond being happy, you are optimistic and enthusiastic.

There's so much life to live, and you're eager to experience so much!






You Are Very Happy



Your life is totally together, and you enjoy every day.

And you don't need a quiz to tell you that!

You know how to find pleasure in the little things...

And even when life isn't so great, you have a good sense of perspective.

享受雨天

我总是庆幸当时坚持留住屋前那一小片绿茵。
雨天,泡一杯热腾腾香喷喷的咖啡,坐在缓缓转动的风扇底下,凉风习习的。抬头便是云雾围绕的Tokun山。
拿一本心爱的书,甚至是把手提电脑搬到外头工作。一边听雨,一边喝着咖啡,一边沉浸在自己的世界里头……
快乐,有时候就是这么简单。

日久生情的桂林市

三月的桂林市,并不是那种我可以轻易爱上的地方。我们到达桂林市时,淫雨绵绵,寒风习习。街上冷清清的,漓江自顾自地穿过这个不中不西不新不旧的城市。

我还没来得及爱上这个城市,我们又匆匆地离开了。

到我们最终回到这个城市,我们已经见识过这一片山河中最柔情之处、见识过这一片苍穹下最悠闲时光,桂林市,仿佛只是我们回家前停驻之处,我们没准备会爱上她。

然而,当你在这个城市摇晃了一段时光,当你学会爱上这儿的步伐,爱上桂林市,就真的是轻而易举了。街上的车子以三十公里时速在道路上缓缓而行、夜市晚上八点才慢慢零零星星的开档、“匆忙”应该是学校老师最难向学生解释的生字……

我们在小洋楼学桂林人悠哉闲哉地过日子。晴天就往外跑,雨天我们也不愁,要么躲在房内听雨听桃花江水轰轰,要么坐在客厅内看书闲聊。在桂林市混久了,正阳步行街有什么店有什么吃的我们比当地人还熟;哪家百货公司正大减价、哪家咖啡屋蛋糕便宜我们也了如指掌。在桂林市你可以过着很城市人的生活,也可以自己寻找乡野乐趣。

我们学桂林人放慢步伐,结果比桂林人更出类拔萃,我们每天都说要到日月双塔“叹茶”,却因为“太忙了”始终望塔兴叹。桂林市内的所有景点,除了独秀峰和靖江王府,我们一律不参观。
独秀峰下有个月牙池

最后一天,乘的士到机场时和司机闲聊。他说,中秋再来吧,那时桂花盛开,整个桂林市弥漫着淡淡桂花香,那是世界上最令人心动的香氛,中秋你再来吧。

我会不会再到桂林呢?实在难说得很……
