Treo 650

譚細佬因工作關係而在網上訂了這部集電話﹐手帳﹐相機於一身的Treo 650 智能電話。但網上公司卻攪錯了地址﹐把機寄了到我們家。於是便益了我﹐整個晚上都在玩這個﹐呵呵~ 機身比我想像中小和輕﹐營幕夠大﹐最重要的就是用palm OS﹐好方便。電話又有藍芽又有speakerphone﹐真好!

唉o也﹐我又心思思想買新電話了。。。不知道Nokia 8800何時才會跌價呢? ^^

go down please!



Everyone is whispering about the potential gasoline shortage due to hurricane Katrina. Strangely, you don't see too many news stories about it. I think everyone is trying to make it "low key" so that people won't flock to the gas stations and cause a mass hysteria. The news keeps talking about how the government is going to release oil from their emergency reserve. OK, we all know they're not going to release all of it, but even if they are, can someone tell me how long is this 700 million barrels of oil going to last? Just doesn't sound too promising to me.

Yesterday, I filled up my tank for $2.78/gallon. I went to fill up again today, even though I only used about 4 gallons of gas, for fear that gas price will go up again tomorrow. Today the price already jumped to $3.01/gallon. It cost me 12 dollars for one day's usage of gas. If this keeps up, I'm really really fucked. (I drive more than 120 miles a day for work, sigh.)

As I was driving home today, some punk on the radio was predicting how the gas price will probably go up to $6-7/gallon. Oh, SHUT UP already!

再見

因有一些事而和他碰面了﹐談了一會。很陌生。我心不在焉地看著他說話﹐想著這個在不久前還是100%屬於我的人﹐現在卻變成這樣﹐很無奈。他現在已屬於另一個人了嗎? 我不敢問。

說再見時﹐他給我一個蠻長的擁抱。我覺得他在抱我時遲疑了一下後﹐抱得我更緊了。很慶幸自己戴了太陽眼鏡﹐因為還在他懷抱時﹐眼淚已忍不住湧了出來。頭也不回地上了車﹐希望他沒見到吧。

覺得自己很沒用。。。要堅強﹐要堅強呀。

兇手

面上為什沒有表情 玩具亦失靈
為什落淚沒有心情 世界也像暫停
和你有點莫明 其實這夢 不需要醒
回看那些歷程 我不應太過清醒

想找開心別太聰明 日落又天明
終於慢慢淡化激情 再見快樂事情
和你變得絕情 誰和誰扯得緊 分得太清
難過也需暫停 讓今天過去全部結冰

明明伴著你走 我怎麼要和你鬥
難道共聚太久 已經不想向前走
無奈共處的一刻都懶得補救 大家終於都變做兇手
明明伴著你走 怎麼跟你如困獸
然後望望四周已經到達盡頭 時光怎麼倒流
難道來共你說 誰全部都不追究

練習活著沒有感情 便靜待收成
現在地上亦有公平 我也背負罪名
和你兩手做成 誰和誰也不應 不分究竟
還有太多事情 令今天轉了場地佈景

the perfect day... not

You know, there are those days where you wake up and everything seems perfect. The air smells fresher, the sky looks bluer, the people seems nicer. When you walk in front of an elevator, the door will conveniently open without you pressing any buttons. When you drive on the freeway, all the cars in front of you will magically change lanes and clear out a path for you. Everything seems to be going your way, you feel like you're on top of the world.

Today, is most definitely NOT one of those days. In fact, today is the exact opposite of that perfect f-king day. Don't ask me about it, cuz I'll probably just tell you to f off.

一切皆是緣

很久很久以前﹐有兩個男孩子在同一時間追譚媽。那時她覺得兩個都不錯﹐一時間﹐不知道怎麼選擇。

兩個男生都不約而同地買了戲票請譚媽看電影。不知怎的﹐一個買到的座位﹐剛好是全戲院內唯一在兩張椅子中間沒有扶手的座位。而另外的一個買到的卻剛剛相反﹐雖然是兩個並排座位﹐但座位安裝得不好﹐位置一前一後的。整個晚上譚媽都要掉過頭來才可和那男的說話呢。

那個買對了座位的幸運男生其實就是譚爸。譚媽說﹐這就是緣份了。不然﹐她可能會跟了另外那個男孩在一起。那麼﹐這個世上就沒有我和譚細佬了。

緣﹐真是一樣奇妙的東西。

老火湯

回到家﹐還未進大門已聞到一陣香味。走到廚房一看﹐原來譚媽煲了一大窩冬瓜雞湯。有一種好幸福的感覺哦! ^^

遇襲

最近﹐有時想寫一些事﹐但最後都沒有。因為一些牛鬼蛇神﹐令到自己欲言又止﹐畏首畏尾的﹐好辛苦。

最初開這個blog﹐是想自己想到甚麼便寫甚麼。但那時沒想到會遇上一些壞心眼的物體。

衰一點講句﹐希望這些異形快點消失。不然﹐我可能要被逼另覓一個家。

頂!

熱!

今日勁頭痛﹐勁hot flash﹐勁唔好老皮。。。我想大家都知咩事啦。

冇野講﹐只係想話做我o地呢一半真係慘。

學瓊瑤小說某人物的口頭禪﹐“慘慘慘﹐連三慘!”

故事



回家途中在高速公路上見到一輛greyhound bus﹐令我想起一個故事。

那一年﹐她在西岸做工﹐他在美國中西部讀書﹐維持著一段又甜蜜又痛苦的長途關係。聖誕節快到﹐他很想和她一起過。但那時是個窮學生﹐身無分文﹐父母又不肯資助他﹐怎辦?

於是﹐他決定乘坐這部穿州過省的greyhound bus去看她。資料上說﹐他要坐四天的車﹐每到一個州便要轉一次車﹐也有時要轉兩次。他不顧一切的上了巴士﹐向她在的地方出發。

誰知﹐那時是冬天﹐多個州都下著大風雪。很多道路都被封鎖﹐巴士的行程受到很多阻滯﹐delay完又再delay。很多個晚上他都要在巴士站裡過夜。睏時便睡在站裡又冰又硬的長椅上﹐餓時便吃自己起程前準備的乾糧。就這樣﹐他挨了整整七天。

這七天裡﹐因風雪的關係﹐他跟她失去了聯絡。她已擔心得快瘋掉。

第八天﹐她終於再聽到他的聲音。在電話另一邊的他說﹐「我到了﹐你來車站接我﹐好嗎?」 她開心得說不出話來。

在車站他們見面了。緊緊的擁著對方﹐好像已過了一輩子。

到今天﹐她仍對他念念不忘。因為她知道﹐這個世上再沒有一個男人會為她做這麼令人感動的事了。
而他﹐偶然和她通信時也會說﹐自那次後﹐他也再沒為任何人做過這麼瘋狂的事了。

我想﹐這樣的事﹐一生之中遇到過一次﹐也已足夠我們用餘生去回味﹐對不?

遙遠的假期

這幾天都在看聖誕節回港的機票。雖然還有幾個月﹐但已開始非常期待了!

我在想﹐我們要開個聖誕派對呀﹐呵呵~~

可憐的胃

胃好痛。想是連日來要不就暴飲暴食﹐要不就甚麼都不食的後遺症了。吃了一向食開的強力胃藥﹐胃部還是抽筋似的。。。

早知道我這個胃會變成現在這樣﹐在大學時就不會每天將黑咖啡像水般灌入肚裡了。現在除了會不定時胃痛﹐還完全失去了接受咖啡因的功能。不能再喝咖啡﹐連濃一點點的茶﹐我喝了也會馬上作嘔﹐唉。

早點上床算了。好痛呀呀呀。

野花



這是林憶蓮所有的大牒中我最愛的一隻。你不會一聽便愛上裡面的歌﹐但不知怎的﹐它會令你越聽越迷醉。
每次聽完裡面的歌﹐總會覺得自己好像多了一點點力量﹐覺得自己可以再堅強多一點點﹐很神奇。

野花

誰能忘懷晨霧中 有你吻著半醒的身
誰能忘懷長夜中 共你笑著笑得多真
癡共醉 多麼的想跟你再追 然而從沒根的我必須去

抬頭前行吧 請你 儘管他朝必然想你 來年和來月請你盡淡忘
曾共風中一野花躺過 曾共風中一個她戀過

來年人隨年漸長 你會發現你的方向
忘遺從前流浪中 倦了愛睡我的中央
風共我 也許一天於天涯途上 來回尋覓中找到我所想

抬頭前行吧 准我 淚水哭出之前捨你 來年和來月請你盡淡忘
曾共風中一野花躺過 曾共風中一個她戀過

臨行前來吧 親我 用當天的小名呼我 來年和來月請你盡淡忘
曾共風中一野花躺過 曾共風中一個她戀過

不一樣的晚餐

為了慶祝/悼念這個特別的日子﹐和友人去了很久以前已介紹過的Fukada吃飯。兩個人叫了一整檯的菜﹐真是吃到撐不下了。像往時一樣﹐他們的albacore很厚身很新鮮﹐烏冬麵一樣的爽口﹐辛辣鮪魚飯很夠味。連忘記照相的tempura icecream也是一樣的好吃。

可是﹐還是有點不一樣的感覺。哦﹐知道了。那是因為以前總會陪我來吃的人不在了。

句號

拿著那張期待已久的支票﹐呆望著支票上的銀碼﹐一點也沒有開心的感覺。手電響起﹐是他。他也拿到了。兩人相對無言﹐眼睛漸漸濕了。

沒想過要怎去用這筆錢﹐只想到﹐一切都要畫上句號了。

星期一, 8月 22, 2005

簡簡單單

用雞骨煲湯底。
將洋蔥蒜頭爆香﹐再加肉碎一起炒熟。
把菜心煮熟﹐切條。
放蛋白生麵入滾水煮熟﹐過冷河。
上碗﹐加冬菜和辣椒醬。
有晚餐吃了!

問答

他跟我說﹐可以做回朋友嗎。
我說﹐如果他那所謂“朋友”的定義是等於在過往兩個月來他對我的態度的話﹐我不要。
有事鍾無艷無事夏迎春般的友情﹐我不稀罕。
對不起﹐可以給我多一次機會嗎。 他問。
我沒有回答他。
因為﹐我也不知道答案是甚麼。

What's the big deal?



WTF?! This is the fifth time in the last 2 weeks that I tried to rent "Bride & Prejudice" at Blockbuster, and everytime it's not in stock. What's so great about this movie??? They advertised it as the Bollywood version of "Pride and Prejudice", and being a die-hard Jane Austen fan, I just have to see it! But I don't understand why everyone else wants to see it either. So it's from the same director as "Bend it like Beckham"(which I thought was just so-so), big deal!

People, stop renting this movie so I can get a chance to watch it! @#$@#~

啤啤照

差點忘記在港時買了這兩隻FF啤﹐開心得馬上拆盒幫他們拍照留念﹐可愛嗎?

小冊子

譚媽年青時很喜歡把喜愛的詩詞和文章抄到一本小冊子裡﹐讓她可以一讀再讀。很久以前她把她這本視如珍寶的小冊子送了給我。那時我並不明白這本冊子有多珍貴﹐看也沒多看便隨手收進櫃裡。

今天在收拾房間時又把它找了出來。裡面的紙張都已變黃﹐但仍能看到譚媽漂亮的字跡。一口氣把小冊字讀完﹐有種好感動的感覺。冊子裡的內容很雜﹐有大路的李白李商隱﹐也有很多聽到未聽過的詩人作者。很多講人生奮鬥的文詩﹐但更多的是關於愛情的。少女懷春的心情﹐對愛情的期望﹐到分手時的傷心。看完後﹐好像多認識了譚媽一點點。發覺﹐原來譚媽也經歷過我所經歷過的。真的好想給譚媽一個大熊抱呢。^^

中產的悲哀

在美國﹐要甚麼人才算是中產(middle-class)?

有車有樓?
有一份高薪職業?
當以上兩個條件並不平等﹐是否有問題存在呢。

年薪達美金六位數字﹐沒有家庭負擔﹐沒有不良嗜好﹐算是中產了吧?
認識很多這些所謂中產的單身貴族。但是﹐他們連想在一個好一點的地區買一座比較像樣的房子都買不起。

問題究竟出在那裡呢? 就是加州的樓價實在太高了。人們薪水入不敷支的問題越來越嚴重﹐真是令人擔心。

最近﹐實在見到太多的中產人仕以零首期﹐借兩筆貨款的方法買入些價值超過七十萬美金的房子。七十萬美金耶﹐雖然現在利息還算是偏低﹐但月供也要四千多五千吧? 還要付各樣費用和每年一大筆的地產稅呢。於是﹐很多人會借些五年fixed﹐五年後floating的貨款來減低每月的供款。在聯邦政府已說明利息一定會繼續升的情況下這樣做﹐真的好危險啊。尤其如果五年後(甚至更早)﹐加州的樓市泡沫爆破的話﹐後果真的不堪設想。

唉﹐希望“負資產”這個名詞﹐不會在加州出現吧。

3。無論把車停在那兒﹐我都一定要拉hand brake和鎖上club﹐風雨不改~
4。一見到活生生的魚我便會嚇到渾身發抖。
5。喜歡把茄汁和ranch dressing混在一起吃。用來沾薯條﹐麵包﹐pizza。。。

好了﹐到宣佈下五個受害者的時間了:
1。圓圓 - 斯斯文文的她﹐會有甚麼怪癖呢?

女人心理

在電影Hitch裡Will Smith的一番開場白令我有點被出賣的感覺。

Basic Principle - no woman wakes up saying "God, I hope I don't get swept off my feet today!"

Now, she might say "This is a really bad time for me," or something like "I just need some space," or my personal favorite "I'm really into my career right now." You believe that? Neither does she. You know why? 'Cause she's lying to you, that's why. You understand me? Lying!

It's not a bad time for her. She doesn't need any space. And she may be into her career, but what she's really saying is "Uh, get away from me now," or possibly "Try harder, stupid," but which one is it?

60% of all human communication is nonverbal, body language; 30% is your tone, so that means 90% of what you're saying ain't coming out of your mouth. Of course she's going to lie to you! She's a nice person! She doesn't want to hurt your feelings! What else she going to say? She doesn't even know you... yet.

Luckily, the fact is that just like the rest of us, even a beautiful woman doesn't know what she wants until she sees it, and that's where I come in. My job is to open her eyes.


好像被人解剖了。女人﹐不都是這樣的嗎? 口是心非﹐但又無時無刻都會盼望那個白馬王子的出現。。。

下午到某人公司交還一些東西﹐拉了男同事跟我同行。表面是要壯膽﹐實際是借人過轎。事後覺得自己很膚淺﹐為何要跟他一般見識? 但﹐我的面子實在擱不下去了。本以為自己不在意他人的看法﹐但我真的受不了他們的目光。為甚麼他可以裝個活得越來越精采的模樣﹐顯得我像隻死狗似的? 很不服氣﹐衝動地決定要做一點事。

不過﹐這一刻我後悔了。原來﹐我一點也不喜歡演戲。

日式便當

昨晚吃了魚生後意猶未盡﹐今天再到日本超市的快餐部買便當。一心想吃他們的辣味鮪魚什錦飯﹐但不知都賣光了還是怎的﹐櫃面只剩下普通壽司和鰻魚飯的便當。剛想離開﹐廚房裡面的小姐居然走出來問我有甚麼需要。我告訴她後﹐她便說立即做給我﹐呵呵~ 那便當交到我手時還是熱騰騰的呢﹐實在太好了!


還試了這個杏仁豆腐做甜品﹐不過味道有點酸酸﹐怪怪的。。。>_<

香噴噴的晚上

晚上洗澡時用了這兩樣。。。


跟著全身擦這個。。。


最後﹐用這兩樣在面上。。。


躺在床上﹐覺得自己好香好香啊。好幸福。

大口仔合照- 待續

有很多還未拆袋。。。下次閒時再拿出來合照。^^

Sagami

中午時聽到Hana說吃sushi﹐令我也心思思想食。無奈公司飯堂的壽司實在太貴﹐五小塊的三文魚壽司也要十多塊錢﹐買不下手。

晚上到家中附近的Sagami壽司外賣店買了一份三文魚魚生和辣味鮪魚壽司﹐連味噌湯和白飯才只是八塊錢﹐便宜多了! 當然﹐也要魚生新鮮才行。今天的三文魚片很新鮮很肥美﹐真慶幸下午沒吃貴魚生﹐嘻。

今日既結論係

大雄好開放!!!

是日晚餐

又好掛住台灣的食物﹐於是走了去好年冬。。。

排骨米粉 - 好喜歡台灣米粉﹐比普通米粉幼得多﹐爽爽的﹐很有口感。肉燥湯底油了點﹐過得去啦。


台式肉丸 - 第一次吃這個。粉皮內包著肉碎冬菰筍乾等等。粉皮QQ的﹐沾著甜醬吃﹐很夠味。


譚媽快回來了﹐我快有住家飯吃了!! 呵呵~~

人前人後

同事G問我﹐為甚麼我永遠都可以那麼好脾氣。而她﹐則常常因工事而發脾氣﹐和人爭吵。每次有緊急問題時她都會差點被壓力壓垮﹐透不過氣來﹔但發生在我身上時﹐我則好像甚麼時候都那麼冷靜﹐不當一回事似的。

她說不明白為甚麼我連分手﹐也可以那麼心平氣和。那天我告訴她時﹐她的反應比我還激動呢。反過來是我叫她要冷靜點的﹐真好笑。

其實﹐壓力﹐我又怎會沒有呢? 但難道一定要在人前宣洩出來嗎? 因工事而在心裡著急就好了﹐你表現了出來﹐不就是為他人也加添壓力嗎? 像她那樣控制不了自己的情緒﹐在上司面前都敢發脾氣的﹐不是太幼稚了嗎。

至於感情事﹐我也有過不顧一切在人前崩潰的日子。但經一事長一智嘛﹐難道我還要在所有人面前哭訴? 我年紀已不小了﹐再這樣任性的話﹐人家不笑我﹐我自己也覺得不好意思呢。但﹐我不在人前傾訴﹐並不代表我將所有事都屈在心裡。我也會在最最親密的朋友和家人面前哭訴的。阿四﹐那天在電話裡你真的被我嚇呆了吧。:P 當然﹐在blog裡發洩也幫了我不少的忙哦﹐希望你們都沒有笑我吧。-_-

其實﹐除了後天的因素外﹐也有大部份是天生的。從小我便有著樂天的性格﹐無論在多灰的時候﹐我也總會有著塞翁失馬焉知非福的想法。而且﹐我也從不介意和人家分享我的煩惱。當我知道無論發生任何事﹐我都會有朋友和家人為我分擔時﹐心情就自然會開朗起來了﹐甚麼都可以從容地面對。 真的﹐沒有甚麼是解決不了的哦~ (這段話是說給小姐聽的。你呀! 不要怕你會害人家擔心﹐朋友和家人就是這樣用的呀。他們有事﹐你也會一樣想為他們分擔吧。^^)

leave me alone

最近他每次來電都只是有所求﹐很討厭。這次我很不客氣地拒絕了他。過了下星期﹐我們便再沒瓜葛了。對我來說﹐是一種解脫吧。

雖然已說過很多次﹐但我真的很累。每次和他接觸後都好像打了場仗似的。以為已跌到最低處﹐但原來還未去到谷底。

聽首歌發發洩吧。

Your Friend (Save Ferris)

I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of tryin' to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

What is happening my friend?
You see I use the term so loosely these days
Seems we're headed towards the end
Soon to be parting our ways
Cuz' you've never done a thing for someone else
unless you thought that you could help yourself
And now the day is here when you have found
you finally need the help of someone else
But they won't help

Cuz' what you do, you know it's always just for you
So I don't care about you anymore

* I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of tryin' to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore
When it really doesn't matter what I say
Cuz' you're never gonna listen to me anyways
Well, I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore *

It seems you've fallen once again
Like you've done a thousand times before
And now you need a certain friend, someone you can count on
But I don't wanna be the one who's always
gonna have to make it up to you
And I don't wanna be responsible for all the stupid little
things you say, and things you do

Cuz' what you did, it seems you've messed up once again
So I don't care about you anymore

You call me late at night when things are not all right
You need someone to get you through again
You need a helping hand, someone who understands
You're begging and pleading but this time I'm not dealing

Cuz' I walked this road with you too many times before
And I realize now that this is not what I want anymore

I don't wanna be your friend
No, I don't wanna be your friend

這個週末

甚麼也不要想﹐只要休息。

下兩個週末都會忙個不停了﹐唉~

再看Constantine



其實早已在戲院看了Constantine﹐但因想看靚仔的關係﹐又租了DVD來看多一次。

意外之喜是DVD的special features內有很多被刪掉的場面。原來戲中本有一女角Ellie﹐是半人半魔鬼的混血兒。她和Constantine有著很親密的關係﹐本有多場戲中都有她的出現。誰知到電影出街時﹐導演為了顯出Constantine寂寞的形像﹐把Ellie這個角色整個都刪去了! 真可惜。。。不過﹐在DVD裡就有得看了﹐所以喜歡這齣戲的人一定不要錯過哦~

有很多戲裡沒交代或不明白的情節﹐在deleted scenes裡都有交代。還有另一個版本的alternate結局﹐看完後很滿足!

gross!

I was looking at my blog's site statistics today. One of the search keywords that people used to find my site was "型男咬女仔的胸部"! WTF?! When did I ever write about that!!!???

It boggles my mind what people would search online..... >_<

當兩個女生遇上兩個男生

Hana-maru說當兩個女生遇上一個男生時﹐那個男生會很慘。。。

今天晚上﹐則是兩個男生遇著我們兩個女生。嘩﹐男生們窒我們一下﹐我們又窒回他們兩下。到arcade玩遊戲時也是男生對女生﹐嘻﹐精彩得很! 簡直分不出勝負呢。^^

真是個很愉快的晚上。

去還是留

在網站和雜誌裡看到多篇文章都談及今年的Siggraph。他們說我公司今年在展覽中大放異彩﹐對我們幾個新projects的美指、科技和故事都很讚嘆。尤其是我們新研究出來的2D演變到3D的技術﹐更令人留下深刻的印象。

文章裡說﹐現在我公司是很多CG artists夢寐以求的工作環境。說甚麼很多很有天資的人想考進來都被拒於門外。。。

他們說所謂的那個動畫天王﹐那個連畫Madagascar的lead animator也仰慕非常的G﹐其實就是我每天都見到的同事。

突然覺得自己真是有點身在福中不知福。想轉工的心有點動搖了﹐真糟糕。魚與熊掌﹐真的不可兼得?

八卦醫生

我的婦科醫生真的可說是全世界最好管閒事的婦科醫生了。
“你和你男友怎樣了?”
“為甚麼會分手?”
“分手多久了?”
“是他飛你還是你飛他?”
“你不想結婚嗎?”
“現在很流行在網上識男仔﹐你有沒有聽說過?”
“識到新男仔時記得要安全呀~ 男仔都是信不過的!”
天呀!!! 每次做檢查時已是非常尷尬非常不舒服的了﹐還要一邊被檢查一邊被審犯地審。救命呀!

可憐的女人

有個這樣的老公﹐真是替她可憐﹐唉。。。

A Very Long Engagement



From the director of one of my favorite movies "Am?lie", and starring Audrey Tautou, "A Very Long Engagement"("Un Long Dimanche de Fian?ailles") sounds like a movie not to be missed. At the end I was not disappointed, but be warned though: it is nothing like "Am?lie". It is a beautiful film, but it's also a very, very dark tale.

This is a story seen through the eyes of Mathilde(Tautou), a girl with a limping leg. Her fianc? has gone to the war (WWI), and never came back. She was told that he was executed from self-mutilation, but since nobody actually SAW him died, she believes that he's still alive, and she's determined to find out what exactly happened.

Don't expect this to be a love story from start to finish; most of the movie actually takes place on the battlefield. It takes us through the horror and devastation of war and showed us nothing but greed, vengeance and death.

There's a glimpse of hope though. I love it that no matter how gloomy and death infested the story was, there was always still a hint of light through Mathilde's eyes. She never gave up hope, and stubbornly believes that her true love is somewhere out there, waiting for her.

The cinematography and music score was amazing, just like "Am?lie". However, I wish that there were more screen times between the two main characters. Although there were a lot of flashbacks from time to time, it was not enough to let us feel the passion between the two. I was moved because of Mathilde's determined, almost blind faith to find her fianc?, but not because of their love for each other. The story was not told as a love story, but as a mystery to be solved.

Oh, almost forgot. It was really surprising that Jodie Foster was in the movie! I didn't know that she speaks French fluently...wow.

Overall, the movie ran a little long and slow for my taste, but the ending... Can't tell you much about the ending, but it's so happy yet so sad and beautiful that it's almost... perfect.

重生



花園的玫瑰叢全都生滿蟲﹐玫瑰葉都被蟲子咬到一個個洞的﹐很醜。近幾個星期來我已不斷地噴殺蟲劑﹐但一點作用也沒有。譚媽說﹐一定要把蛀了蟲的玫瑰葉通通剪掉﹐然後再噴殺蟲劑才行。

於是﹐今天我便挑了個太陽不會太晒的時間。。。
戴上手套﹐狠下心腸地拿著大剪刀把壞的玫瑰葉全都剪光。
雖然已做足預防措施﹐但在玫瑰叢中走動時﹐手手腳腳仍然被玫瑰刺到了。
好痛啊!
剪到雙手累到動不了﹐只在不停地發抖。
休息一下吧。
再繼續。
好像過了很久很久﹐終於剪完了。
嘩﹐累到像打了場仗似的。
地上的殘枝真是令人慘不忍睹。
跟著﹐要把剪掉的葉和枝全都收拾好﹐放進垃圾袋內。
已是非常小心翼翼的了﹐但偶然又被刺到。
難受~
把垃圾袋丟掉﹐洗過手﹐躺在沙發上,呼出一口氣。
和玫瑰花好像多了層心靈感應。
有種劫後餘生的感覺。
我們﹐都會好起來的。

算數
曲:藍奕邦/詞:藍奕邦/唱:盧巧音

分手的一煞或者很不好過 苦痛到我要生要死
曾話過要去懷著怨氣 這一世也要決心憎你
但我知花必須要謝 春天必須變夏天
我也有天心死 披風雪亦要繼續前行

毛毛細雨 萬象更新 一概清洗心中的怨恨
人事會轉季節會變更 承受過冷雨折磨過的枯枝
春季後亦可再生

* 也許不應該憎恨人 好應該感動人 失戀都這樣勇敢
既是成年人 無謂再拿謠言誣蔑你 事後便罪加一等
再經過短短的春夏和秋冬來忘掉你 現在活得多開心
跟你渡過 這麼多年 都算是朋友 何用變做仇人 *

舊事算數 大道康莊
跟你握握手冰釋怨恨 離別了你我至會瞭解
其實我也會有力氣抵擋冬天最寒冷的氣溫

隨著季節變化 開始想不起了你的眼神
來日你也讚歎 我也會劫後重生

一個目送 夏去秋來 等我用時間 忘掉這舊情人

數碼煲仔飯

聽說在Alhambra新開了一間叫“稻香”的餐廳﹐他們賣的煲仔飯很特別。廣告說他們是羅省第一家用數碼科技來煮煲仔飯的餐聽。說甚麼他們的數碼煲仔飯因時間和火候都握得很準﹐所以煮出來的飯特別香。

今天特地拉友人去試試。。原來所謂數碼科技﹐就是有自動調節的電爐和digital timer而已! 真是誇大啊~


不過﹐他們的菜的確好吃。煲仔飯香而不油﹐貴妃雞又滑又夠味﹐核桃蝦仁很新鮮爽口。見到鄰檯叫的菜也好像味道很棒的樣子﹐難怪他們門口常常都站滿等位的客人了。

大昏迷

昨天回到家﹐下午五點正。
本想在床上休息一下﹐但卻睡著了。。。
起來的時候﹐已是早上八點多。
如不是調了鬧鐘約了人﹐我還可以繼續睡的。
身心疲累哦。zzzZZzzz

越南牛肉七味

很久沒吃地道的越南牛肉七味了﹐這是來美國後才試到的呢。這間位於小西貢的"Anh Hong"牛肉七味餐廳已有多年歷史﹐除了有牛肉七味外﹐還有各式各樣的越南燒烤和煲仔飯﹐都很好吃的哦。

這晚我們有六個人﹐點了三份牛肉七味套餐、兩份蔗蝦米粉和一份春卷。因為每份餐都有送越南米紙和蔬菜讓我們捲來吃﹐所以真的吃到很飽﹐最後還要打包呢~

好了﹐來介紹介紹照片裡的菜吧:
1。米紙和蔬菜、蘿蔔等等﹐都是讓我們可以捲著各樣牛肉來吃的。
2。看! 這是我捲的﹐很醜吧? >_<
3。各種醬料。有越南甜魚露、新鮮香茅、辣椒醬、檸檬汁和只有這兒才吃到的秘製醬(深棕色的那瓶)。這個秘製醬不是所有人都受得了的﹐有些人會覺得很腥﹐但我卻好喜歡! 有很香很香的魚醬味﹐酸酸甜甜的﹐還加了很多鳳梨在裡面﹐真的很特別!
4。牛肉第一味 - 牛肉冷盤沙拉。有牛肉片、酸甜蘿蔔、香草和花生﹐很開胃。
5。牛肉第二味 - 牛肉火鍋﹐湯底是甜醋﹐所以煮熟的牛肉都是酸酸甜甜的﹐很夠味。
6。牛肉第三四五六味 - 這碟有四種不同的牛肉點心。有包花生的肉圓、有用菠菜葉和香菜包著炸的肉卷、有用包著香茅的牛肉片、也有混了冬粉﹐花生﹐青豆﹐雲耳和黑胡椒粒的大肉圓(我叫它做炸彈﹐因為吃到胡椒粒的話會好辣的啊~)。
7。牛肉第七味 - 牛肉稀飯﹐裡面大多是牛肉湯﹐只有很小的米飯﹐肉碎﹐蔥和胡椒粉。很香口的。
8。春卷 - 老實講﹐他們的春卷﹐馬馬虎虎啦。
9。蔗蝦米粉 - 用蝦來包著蔗來炸﹐是我的最愛~~ 蝦很爽口﹐蔗又甜又多汁。讚!
10。三色冰 - 沒喝過﹐不過聽說下了太多的甜綠豆蓉﹐太甜了。。。
11。清補涼 - 這是我點的飲料。有海帶、蓮子、龍眼、薏米和大菜糕條﹐伴著不會很甜的糖水吃﹐很清涼。


很豐富的一餐﹐你們有機會也應該去試試哦。^^

The Island


The Island. What an awesome awesome movie! It ran a little long (~130 minutes), but everything else is perfect. The first half of the movie is more sci-fi/suspense, and the second half of the movie is action action action.

So, the movie starts off with a big group of people who lives in a sterilized facility. They've been told that the world's atmosphere has been contaminated, and they were the few lucky ones who survived(The two main characters Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson are among the survivors). These people must live in this facility and obey the rules until they win the lottery. The lottery prize is a one way ticket to the ISLAND, the one place on earth where it's still non-contaminated. It's described as the ultimate paradise, so everyone wants to win the lottery. Then one day, of course, they found out that things are not what it seems at all.

I love how the story was being set up at the beginning, where we don't really know what's going on. Then as the truth started to come out, wow, it's a LOT of running, chasing, car crashes, and explosions. All the action sequences in this movie are amazing; I was literally at the edge of my seat the entire time. OK so there are a few things in the story that doesn't make sense, but everything else makes up for them. The acting was just ok, but with this kind of action movie, acting doesn't really matter, right?

In case you still haven't noticed, I really really enjoyed this film. I just can't believe that it didn't make much money in the box office; WB should fire its marketing team! Anyways, everybody should go see it.... Trust me, it's way way way better than that so called #1 movie, "Fantastic Four". :)

Super Lotto



星期三晚開的六合彩將會有五千萬美元的累積獎金。跟據我近來某一方面的運程﹐應該都是時候讓我賭場得意一下了吧? *PLEASE!!!* $_$

譚媽被坑了~


我見用開的Soigne Aquafit快用完了﹐便叫譚媽趁著還有買一送一的優惠時快點幫我入貨。誰知﹐譚媽去到專門店﹐那位sales小姐跟她說優惠已過﹐現在只有買二送二。譚媽傻下傻下的﹐居然真的幫我買了四瓶回來~ 真的夠我用一整年了! 她還被說服買了Soigne的“鎮店之寶”- 布甸mask﹐好貴哦! 下次都是不能叫譚媽去幫我買護膚品﹐不然真的是送羊入虎口了。 >_<
(不過﹐現在真的好期待那瓶布甸mask。不知道用完後我的皮膚是否真的會像布丁一樣滑溜呢? 呵呵~)
