Roundabouts

I am now at a cross road here. To be more specific, I am now at those roundabouts with multiple exits. I have been staying in this roundabout for some time now, and still going in circles. I have to pick one exit and continue my journey soon.

Therefore, I should do something about it, today. I shall spend the morning to find out how to draw the map, and then draw my map (long term). And I shall spend the afternoon to clean up the short term road blocks before I could start my journey with the map.

Cool Weather 2

I have to worship the beauty of nature once again: The weather suddenly turns much cooler after the well named “Mid-Autumn Festival”. Isn’t it amazing? The lunar calendar is so cool. They scheduled the weather in the plan, and the nature has to follow. Never miss once.

When the fall arrives, I always forgot how we could live with the hot 30C air, perhaps just few days before the weather changes. I also forgot how nice it was in Sydney where we could have spring in the morning, summer in the afternoon, fall during the sun set, and winter at night. That way, we don’t have to wait 365 days to experience the whole cycle of life.

Cool Weather 1

It is just too good that the weather has turned cooler since last weekend. You have to be amazed by how the Chinese Lunar Calendar works. We have just passed the Mid-Autmn festival a few days ago. According to the meaning of the festival, it is the middle of the lunar month “Sept”, which firstly means that it would be full moon on the day (so we eat Moon Cake and burn candles to celebrate this). Secondly it is really the “mid-autmn” day. The weather would automatically turn cooler after this day. So cool!

Wait

Dear 2046,

Hello. Today I am going to talk about the topic “Wait”. In fact, this is the topic a few days ago. Thanks for waiting for me.

It is true that waiting is very painful. Usually “waiting” implies that you do nothing and sit still and delay any actions until the objective is acheived.

Since this is still not the right time, I guess you have to wait a bit longer for my real article to be posted. (And it also helps you to learn the real meaning of “wait”). Bye for now.

Sunday

Today is Sunday. I like Saturday better than Sunday because Sunday gives you that “The End of The World” feeling.



People might ask how is it exactly feel like. Well, it is something like what this now: I know I have lots of thing should have been done during the weekend, but I haven’t found the chance to look into those. And now by the end of today, I still have no time to do it. So finally I give up and wait until the end of the day, and sleep.



Or to be exact, I should say the exact moment of when the weekend really ends is the dawn of Monday. If I really have to fight till the last minute, then the sun rise would be my deadline. When I see the first blue colour fading in to the sky above the container terminal, I know it is about time for me to surrender and take my morning shower.



Another day, another week, another battle has begun. And the war never ends.




My First Blog

I am going to write my own blog starting from today. Today is officially my first day in the new office. According to the Tong Shing, today is a better day to start a new job. Besides, the department assistant was on “medical leave” (this is a new term I’ve learnt yesterday) yesterday, so nothing could be setup for me. Officially, I would say a man without a computer (and Internet connection) is a man without a real job. So I have decided to conclude that my job starts today, with an assumption that I would see her today.

I am glad that so far most of the things turn out as I was expecting them to be. I must say that I didn’t have much expectation anyway, so this “expectation test” is fairly easy to pass. Everything is within the imagination of a man who have already lived half his career life in this place before.

Here is my goal. My goal for today is to work out a plan for myself for at least the first 3 weeks of my days here before I go off to Beijing.
