Another month just passed by ….

Health wise, leg wasn’t as painful before but hand is getting painful from typing. Overworked burnout Asian.

My leg wasn’t painful, probably because I didn’t walk as much before. Barely hit 10,000 steps on most days. Partly busy, partly avoiding the sun.

Gaining weight because of inactivity and binged eating.

Still playing Pokemon but it is feeling like tasks rather than hobby. Barely touch piano tiles nowadays.

Spent $$$ on online shopping. But, so far, I am liking and using the stuff that I bought. Also, been buying many products to protect face such as moisturiser, mist, screen protectors.

Managed to read two books despite being busy.

Also, stepped into the cinema for the first time this year to watch Crazy Rich Asian. The best part of the movie is the first 5 minuets .

Have an extremely short vacation doing nothing.

  • Next month, need to eat healthily, sleep more and exercise more. Taking care of myself instead of pouring myself into never ending work.

    Eat,Play,Work

    Didn’t update this blog for more than a month.

    How I spent my May :

    Been working extremely hard. Busy does not equal to productivity. So much things are not up to my control.

    Bringing parents for medical checkups.

    Usually eat alone with low expectations of food. But happy that do have gatherings with old friends, new colleagues and family members.

    Still playing Pokémon. Been going many places just to spin new pokestops just for the extra points. Been catching and raiding to catch shinies with no success. Been watching concerts. Been overseas for holidays and staycation with family. Walk too much for this game.

    Binged watch 愛。回家.

    Read a few books, including Invoices which is about invoice for emotions.

    Played in the pools although I can’t swim.

    Cycled for two hours. Tiring but happy.

    Feb

    不知不覺就過了二月立春,過了人生的第x的十年。

    比別人慢了好幾年,才看完巾幗梟雄。雖然站在四奶奶與柴九這邊,但實在覺得謝雪心把大奶奶演得絲絲入扣。謝雪心和熬嘉年的母子實在演得太好了。我老是注意旁邊的綠葉多過主角,就像我愛吃窩邊菜一樣。

    最近老是頭痛,不知怎麼辦。

    Just read an article of a book titled Crazy Rich Asian, written by Kevin Kwan, a descendant of  an OCBC banker.  Background of the story is set in Singapore, about very rich people. The book is a bestseller and is going to be made into a movie. I might borrow the book from the library. Not incline to buy book at the moment, mainly no space.  Besides, I have reservation contributing money if the book portrays a negative image of Singapore. The Singapore I grew up in is a country where most people work for a honest and humble living.  I might be wrong and ended up loving the book. 

     I first heard about Crazy Rich Asian from Ryan Higa’s Twitter asking Asian to audition for roles.  I didn’t pay much attention to it then because I have very little interest in the life of Asian American, filthy rich or dirt poor. In fact, I am put off that people from various ethnic group and various culture of the Asia continent is pigeonholed into a group called Asian in USA. Chinese, Japanese, Korean are different. Philipinos, Indonesian are different. Indian, Sri Lankan, Pakistani are different.  

    Anyway, hope that the book is good and the movie is successful. For a start, I respect that the movie make a stand by not whitewashing the roles.

    我們唱著的歌

    終於看了這部電影。一部關於新謠的紀錄片。

    這部戲見證了我的少女時代。那些年,我們一起熱愛的新謠。新謠在我生命中佔了重要位置,但我只是個聽廣播,看電視的新謠愛好者。當年,我沒錢買卡帶,也不懂得怎麼搭巴士追隨這些創作者。雖然新謠團體在好多學院非常活躍,偏偏與我的學院擦身而過。但能在新謠的光輝歲月成長,很美好。

    這部戲也見證了新加坡當年建國的艱辛。一個錯誤的政策可能就一子錯,滿盤皆落。經濟起飛與國家和諧的等價交換就是一代華文教育者與教育生的人生。當年年紀小,對南大的命運難以感同身受,但也知是一代人的痛。

    這部戲也見證了科技的進步。當年,沒有網絡,沒有臉書,但不阻一群音樂愛好者互相認識。當年的龍虎榜是歌曲歡迎度的重要指標。歌者得完完整整的唱歌,而不能靠電腦修音。

    這部戲也見證了一群年輕人的赤子之心,一群肯給年輕人機會的媒體人。

    美人魚

    簡單的故事,簡單的感動。

    故事總是淡淡的喜樂,淡淡的哀傷。主角永遠期待著真摯的情感。

    無敵是寂寞的,是周星馳的心境吧….雖已富貴,但少年時代的貧困刻骨銘心。一碗叉燒飯,一隻檢回來的雞翅膀,是人間美味。

    周星馳戲裡的小人物從來沒被忽略,都有發揮的空間。他總是提拔不起眼的人物,所以我不信他是個唯利是圖的人。

    記得多年前讀過的倪匡小說,說美麗的女特務厭惡了人類,把自己改造成極醜的海洋生物,在海底唱著快樂的歌。但海洋已經被人類破壞,已經逃無可逃了…..

    除非你是火星人,能逃出這又危險又瘋狂的地球。

    我懷念的。。。

    最近,不經意的步入時光隧道,到了一間很久沒去的舊式百貨公司。

    時光恍如倒流二十多年。店已經不是當年的店,但讓我想起曾經我常光顧的某間書店,只為了看香港的娛樂週刊與報紙。在那沒有網絡的年代,資訊是那麼不容易尋得。

    最近,周星星找了鄭大俠與莫小姐合唱世間始終你好,好感動。念舊的人是好人。周同學是我青春生命裡重要的人物,明星來來去去,世間始終你好。

    鄭生是我童年的第一代偶像。很高興我少年的偶像與青春時期的偶像合作。莫小姊有情有義。

    今天在電視聽到了廣東版的俩忘烟水裡。香港八十年代的電視主題曲,輝煌的香港年代。懷念。
