我的孤单北半球 - prologue

即将启程 孤单的北半球
一个人十万八千里之外的公干+旅行
每天以晚安的问候送我吃早餐
还有三餐都是汉堡、薯条、起司的半个月
我会想念 在这里温热的一切
现在 又懒 又期待 复杂的心情
很快 又要飞过地平线
到世界的另一个角落 应验自我价值
然后 烙下脚印 寻找两年前的回忆
但愿 这次 我有机会 感觉到雪
还有 可以每晚睡前记载 当天的点点滴滴
喜欢创出浪迹天涯的感觉 就是可以边走边写
至少 还有单眼相机

War Museum Penang: memory lane back to World War II

When I was still a teen, some friends told me that the fortress up at Batu Maung Hill is haunted. And some of them ran into Japanese marching ghosts when they explored the fortress at night.

!!! o.0 !!!

Years later, the government turned this historical fortress into a museum - War Museum. The tragedy of the World War II is vividly depicted in the relics. This fortress was constructed by the British in anticipation of an amphibious invasion by the Japanese that never materialised.

I was so bored during one of the weekends, and so I suggested to my baby that we go find some excitement at the 'haunted fortress' nearby. That's of course the War Museum. Driving up the winding road towards the top of the hill. Suprisingly the view from the fortress overseeing the sea is spectacular.

The Princess Wedding Diaries - 14th Feb 2011

First page of wedding diaries... keeping track of the "royal wedding" as time goes by....

We signed up our wedding package with Aspial Wedding. It was all by a quirk of fate, without doing any comparison with any other bridal galleries, we paid for the package, exactly 1 week after the proposal. There are things that you cannot judge by $$$, that's the right feeling of doing something, especially when it's something related to artistic. That's me! If the feeling is right, and you're afford to pay, that's God's grace to save your energy and time for other things. =)

Some of my friends and colleagues definitely would not agree with the way I deal with the wedding package... I'm not surprised, because I kinda always surprise people with things I do. Perhaps I'm odd to them. Hahah.. However I think the outcome that I achieve without doing much comparison to get something at most of the time turned out to be fruitful too. That's why I think I didn't lose anything, most importantly, priceless TIME and PETROL. Another thing is, minimize chances of confusing ourselves, also minimizing arguments. That's quite true for some couples.

Friends around were very helpful in giving advise in venue booking and selection. In fact, I think they're even more concerned than me. Almost everyone of them who's married told the same story - book AS EARLY AS 1 YEAR BEFORE wedding date. Anyhow the venue has been fixed, now only pending other stuffs such as food tasting, food selection.

13th Feb (yesterday) we went for gown selection, 3 hours and finally done. 1 white, 1 ivory, 1 champagne, 1 yellow, 1 peach, 1 red and 1 green. Sounds a bit odd the colors? But I looked good in them, so I picked those. Photography session rescheduled again... because we both kind of having heavy business trips recently. Luckily still have time to celebrate Valentine's today before he's off to business trip again tomorrow..

Happy Valentine's Day!

女人自视为天敌的女人

新年期间读了本书
据两性专家说
女人视为威胁性最高的三种女人:
(1)很美丽的女人
(2)温婉高雅的女人
(3)活泼大方的女人
也是最为容易受女人排斥的女人

如果你三个都“中”
或者又是 三个“中”次奖
算是上天赐给你的美丽诅咒吗?
平时 “靓女、靓女”称呼
背后形容到你变 变形金刚

嘿!
美貌和智慧拉不上关系的吗?
难怪
会有 物以类聚

台上一分钟 台下十年功
气质 是自己修回来的

女人
醒醒吧

Hong Kong: THE PEAK, way up to the luxurious hill

I personally think that going up to THE PEAK is an excitement that you should try if you're travelling to Hong Kong.
The venerable Peak Tram is, as most passengers agree, the only way to truly experience the beauty of Hong Kong's natural wonders. Tens of millions of people from every corner of the globe have taken the ride, which affords a uniquely spectacular perspective of the city.

Located also at the Garden Road Peak Tram Lower Terminus is The Peak Tram Historical Gallery. Open in September, 2007, The Peak Tram Historical Gallery is like a time tunnel with more than 200 memorabilia exhibited. Divided into 15 theme sections, it will take you back to Hong Kong in the 19th and 21st century. The first day of commercial operation on May 30th, 1888, attracted 600 passengers.

At the Peak Tram Terminal. Mom-in-law, mom, myself and grandma.

The track gradient is from 4 degrees to 27 degrees. Quite steep. So remember to give way to the elderly.

I actually prefer to stand than to sit. If you go up before the sunset, you'll have the chance to enjoy nice scenery of Hong Kong.

Wonderful colors at the upper terminus when you disembark from the tram.
