被宠爱

十多年了,我有一位好同事的妈妈,总是以她的方式宠爱着我。


记得十多年前,我生产过后会去上班,因为公司变动,我必须到这位当时还不是同事的家庭办事处工作。因为是家庭式的生意,所以连妈妈也在办事处里闲晃。但这位我们称为“阿嘛”的妈妈可重没闲下来, 她总是煮煮炒炒的,做一些吃的喝的让我们品尝。因为生产后的我缺于照顾,所以当时很瘦,脸色又难看,“阿嘛”看了都觉得可怜,就对我说:“你就别在外面吃没营养的了,就随便在我这吃好了。”所谓的“随便”可真不随便,每餐都大鱼大肉,而“阿嘛”的烹饪技巧可是一流的哦!吃得我好开心哟!


后来他们的公司结束营业,而我的公司就娉请了这位好同事的丈夫,再后来,连好同事也雇用了。而我也因此又有口福了。“阿嘛”总喜欢起早摸黑的,煮一些吃的,要好同事带来给我吃。


这是南瓜糕。
这只不过是其中一道食物罢了。还有很多很多,我没拍下来。
可惜的是,“阿嘛”重不量用料,否则就可以写下食谱分享了。
谢谢您,“阿嘛”!谢谢您总是用着您的方式宠爱着我。

Chocolate chips almond cake


Make this cake quite some time ago. Didn't have the time to download the photo, so keep delaying till today. Recipe is from FM 97.2 DJ Violet's blog. Recently, have been too busy and did not read or follow any more recipe from there. This cake is quite soft and nice. However, it's quite messy to cut as the almond (original recipe is chopped walnuts) is always getting in the way. So even though delicious, it is not very presentable for giving away unless u give as a whole cake.

猴子树


前几天因为老公工作的关系,要上裕廊去,我们就心血来潮,兜去看报上所报道的猴子树。其实所谓的猴子树,是因树干上长了很多“包", 而刚好,就有这么一棵,树干上的“包”就形成了向猴子的脸型,之后,很多人就把此树当神明来拜。很多都是为求财而来的。还有个老人家,在那摆了一个档口,在售卖猴子树的照片。 照片的后面还贴了张红纸,写了四个字,让买照片的人有个字可以买,说不定,真的发财了,还可以回头答谢老人家呢!




我的照片就是跟老人家买的。但是我可不是为发财而买的哦,我是觉得帮帮老人家无妨嘛。才两块钱,没什么的。老人家在那日晒雨淋的,也不过是为糊口饭吃罢了。再说,我真的忘了带相机,跟老人家买照片就当留个纪念。说不定,猴子树真的显灵,就让它保佑我身边所有的人,尤其是我最想念最牵挂的。

是我的福气

Rec'd some short stories in the email, found it quite meaningful, thus recording it here:

是我的福氣

生命是一種學習,任何人在學習的過程中不免遇到困難和迷惑。
給人一句好話,讓人生命奮起飛揚,何樂而不為呢?

所以,人要常說:

第一、 給人歡喜的話 ;
第二、 給人鼓勵的話 ;
第三、 給人肯定的話 ;
第四、 給人讚歎的話 。

多說好話,少說壞話 。不經意的一句輕浮話,有時會自毀前程,而一句關懷別人的話,卻能讓沮喪的人有生存下去的勇氣。因此,人要經常檢點自己的口舌,以免破壞了好因好緣。

是我的福氣

鵑鵑 原本在美國工作,公司給她的待遇很好,再加上單身,生活過得很逍遙。前一陣子她住在臺灣的母親罹患腦瘤,開刀後復原得很慢。鵑鵑立刻請調回臺,找了間公寓,把母親接到身邊就近照顧。鵑鵑不是家中的獨生女,上有大姐,下有弟弟,但是只有她放棄原本的生活,承擔服侍母親的責任。她大姐偶爾給她一筆錢,當作是孝親費,此外很少露面,更別談關心自己母親的現況,好像出點錢就可以心安理得的把母親推給妹妹。

我們這些鵑鵑的朋友看不過去,紛紛提醒她要找大姐和弟弟談清楚母親的事。鵑鵑保持她一貫的優雅從容,靜靜的說:「 照顧媽媽是我的福氣。」原本為她打抱不平的我們,聽了這句話,頓時沉默起來。難怪從來不曾聽她抱怨,自認享有「福氣 」的人,怎麼會向人訴苦呢?她總是耐著性子尋找適合母親的飲食配方和復健機構,珍惜與母親相處的時光,鵑鵑忙著張羅都來不及了,哪有閒功夫喊累叫煩哪!

在鵑鵑細心打點下,病情不大樂觀的母親,身體竟一天天好起來,母親想要康復的意願也啟動了,甚至會離開臥房到屋外走走。原本令人覺得沉重的擔子,因為鵑鵑懂得惜福,居然化作豐盛的禮物。

現在,鵑鵑成了大家的強心劑,每當我們遇到困難,或者受了委屈,習慣性的退縮、放棄、抱怨或指責別人時,總會想起她的話。在我們這一群朋友中,開始流行一種句型:「 能多做一點是我的福氣 。」「 孩子不聽話,耐著性子引導他是我的福氣 。」「擠公車沒位子坐是我的福氣。」說這些話的時候,我們多少帶著點自我解嘲的意味,有時也是開玩笑,但不知不覺中,我們看待周遭人事物的態度有了明顯變化,原來好福氣也是會傳染的。

壹句話,人生的成敗,常常因為一個人、一件事,甚至一句話而有決定性的影響。尤其對人有用的一句話,勝過千言萬語。古今中外有很多人因為別人的一句話而深受感動,甚至豁然開朗;由於「一句話」而改變一生的事例,更是多不勝數。

美國著名的教育家和演講口才藝術家卡內基,小時候是一個非常調皮的小男孩。他九歲的時候,父親將繼母娶進門。他父親向新婚妻子介紹卡內基時,如是說:「希望你注意這個全郡最壞的男孩,他實在令我頭痛,說不定明天早晨他還會拿石頭砸你,或做出什麼壞事呢!」出乎卡內基預料的是,繼母微笑地走到他面前,托著他的頭,注視著他。接著告訴丈夫:「 你錯了,他不是全郡最壞的男孩,而是最聰明,只是還沒找到發洩熱忱地方的男孩 。」此話一出,卡內基的眼淚不聽使喚地滾滾而下 。

就因為這一句話,建立了卡內基和繼母之間深厚的感情;也因為這一句話,成就了他立志向上的動力;更因為這一句話,讓他日後幫助千千萬萬的人一同步上了成功之路。

「一句話」很容易說,但重要的是要能讓對方受用失落著的生命再造,不一定要靠能言善道的人來開導,有時僅僅是一句看起來普通的話,就能為對方帶來力量。

原來你也很富有

有一位青年,老是埋怨自己時運不濟,發不了財,終日愁眉不展。

這一天,走過來一個鬚髮皆白的老人,問:

「年輕人,為什麼不快樂?」
「我不明白,為什麼我總是這麼窮。」
「窮?你很富有嘛!」老人由衷地說。
「這從何說起?」年輕人不解。
老人反問道:「假如現在斬掉你一個手指頭,給你 1 千元,你幹不幹?]
「不幹。」年輕人回答。
「假如砍掉你一隻手,給你 1 萬元,你幹不幹?」
「不幹。」
「假如使你雙眼都瞎掉,給你 10 萬元,你幹不幹?」
「不幹。」
「假如讓你馬上變成 80 歲的老人,給你100 萬,你幹不幹?」
「不幹。」
「假如讓你馬上死掉,給你 1000 萬,你幹不幹?」
「不幹。」
「這就對了,你已經擁有超過 1000萬的財富,為什麼還哀歎己貧窮呢?」老人笑吟吟地道。

青年愕然無言,突然什麼都明白了。

心靈導航

親愛的朋友,如果你早上醒來發現自己還能自由呼吸,你就比在這個星期中離開人世的人更有福氣。如果你從來沒有經歷過戰爭的危險、被囚禁的孤寂、受折磨的痛苦和忍饑挨餓的難受。。。。你已經好過世界上 5 億人了。如果你的銀行帳戶有存款,錢包裡有現金,你已經身居於世界上最富有的 8% 之列!如果你的雙親仍然在世,並且沒有分居或離婚,你已屬於稀少的一群。如果你能抬起頭,面容上帶著笑容,並且內心充滿感恩的心情,你是真的幸福了——因為世界上大部分的人都可以這樣做,但是他們卻沒有。如果你能握著一個人的手,擁抱他,或者只是在他的肩膀上拍一下…… 你的確有福氣了 —— 因為你所做的,已經等同於上帝才能做到的。

親愛的,如果你能讀到這段文字,那麼你更是擁有了雙份的福氣,你比 20億不能閱讀的人不是幸福很多嗎?看到這裡,請你暫且放下書,然後非常認真地對自己說一句話:「哇!原來我是這麼富有的人!」 _____

當你遇見美好的事物時,所要做的第一件事,就是把它分享給你四周的人。這樣,美好的事才能在這個世界上,自由自在的散播開來。

Contra Band cigarette




Yesterday, one lorry who is supposed to deliver my co's potato chips to the warehouse was being detained at the custom becos of contra band cigarette found among the goods which is meant for us. Oh dear, the whole office becomes such a chaos becos the custom officer requested for the manager to bring down all the necessary documents to him. On top of that, they also took his statement and come to my store to check the documents. Although we are pretty sure, this has nothing to do with us but then becos of some silly fellow making use of our delivery, we are under investigation too.

After that from the news in the tele text, i understand the driver is only 25 years old and the cigarette is worth about $495,000. Oh shit! The custom officer even follow my store man back to his house to check his house and even detained his mobile phone. What bad luck he has got just becos he's a Malay and the driver is also a Malay who also denied any knowledge of the cigarette among our goods. Sigh....... racialism is really scary.

Really don't understand why must people do this type of illegal things. I just feel that if one earn less, then one will have to spend less and live within one's own means. Why want to take this type of silly risk. This lead me to the thought of someone dear.......... just becos of one silly mistake, and there it goes..........

Smile



The real man smiles in trouble,
gathers strength from distress,
and grows brave by reflection.



Baby smiles an average of 400 times per day.
An adult smiles 15 times per day, ever wonder WHY?

Echo of Life

The Echo of Life

A man and his son were walking in the forest.
Suddenly the boy trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams, “Ahhhh!”
Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain, “Ahhhh!”
Filled with curiosity, he screams: “Who are you?”, but the only answer he receives is: “Who are you?”
This makes him angry, so he screams: “You are a coward!”, and the voice answers: “You are a coward!”

He looks at his father, asking, “Dad, what is going on?”
“Son,” the man replies, “Pay attention!”
Then he screams, “I admire you!”
The voice answers: “I admire you!”
The father shouts, “You are wonderful!”, and the voice answers: “You are wonderful!”
Then the father explains, “People call this ‘ECHO’, but truly it is ‘LIFE’!
Life always gives you back what you give out.
Life is a mirror of your actions.

If you want more love, give more love!
If you want more kindness, give more kindness!
If you want understanding and respect, give understanding and respect!
If you want people to be patient and respectful to you, give patience and respect!
This rule of nature applies to every aspect of our lives.”
Life always gives you back what you give out.
Your life is not a coincidence, but a mirror of your own doings.

承诺

很伤心。伤心人为什么要胡乱许下承诺。等到事情真的发生时,却逃得无影无踪。唉!!!!只留下那个还相信真有海枯石烂,真有海逝山盟的人在哪哭泣。醒醒吧!恐怕真正会留在身边的只有父母而已。可惜你却不知道。。。。。。。。。。。

CROSS

A friend of mine who is a Christian send me an email showing the
pictures of a man carrying a large wooden CROSS and is complaining
about the difficulty in carrying it. Along the way, he keep asking
for the CROSS to be cut shorter each time so that it's make easier to
carry. However, when the man finally reached the cliff end and wanted
to cross, he's not able to do so anymore as the CROSS that he carries
is too short to connect to the other side. Whereas, the others who are
carrying the long difficult CROSS is able to reach the other side.

The moral of the story : Never ask for your burden to be lessen as
there's always a reason for the difficult path along your life path.

Even though i'm not a Christian, some how or the other, this story
did motivate me to carry on no matter how difficult the path may be.
I'M HANGING ON THERE.

Rose Buds Tea


While browsing thru' my old folders, found this picture that i took some times ago.
This is actually a souvenir given to me while attending a wedding - it's actually rose buds tea. It's comes in a little tube with a note that reads like this:
" TEA FOR TWO
Step 1: Place buds in cup
Step 2: Add hot water
Step 3: Watch it bloom
Step 4: Enjoy with your love ones "
In real life, is it so easy to see a relationship bloom?

Steam Cake & Mooncake



Steam a chocolate sandwich steam cake last week. This cake is very simple to do but very delicious. There's no flour involve, just butter, eggs and marie biscuits. Hubby's friend all say very nice. However, i have yet to master the skill of creating nice graphics on the cake surface.


These mooncakes are given to me by a friend. Hubby loves it so much. Indeed, it's very yummy! The lotus paste is not very sweet and the pastry is soft..............oOoo.......... yummy yummy!

1st successful whole cake




Tdy i bake my 1st successful whole cake. Actually i got the ingredients for this sponge cake with SP quite sometime ago but just didn't have the courage to make becos all this while when i tried to make a whole cake, the centre usually come out too wet, otherwise the exterior is burnt. Therefore, even though i have all the ingredients ready, but the thought of unsuccessful making really puts me off. Tdy finally managed to make one complete cake without the burnt and wet centre. However, the height of the cake is still not very good - only 4.5 cm high only. I'm not sure whether is it becos my weighing machine problem or is it becos i really got the wrong measurement. I guess the baking powder and sponge cake stabiliser may be incorrect. My weighing machine seems quite difficult to make small measurement. Or is it becos the oven temperature is not correct becos inorder to prevent the burnt effects, instead of setting the temperature at 180 degree celsius, i set it at 170 degress celsius, this temperature seems perfect to cure the burnt cake problem. Well, as long as i'm not trying to slice the cake to put in fillings, i think this cake seems perfect.

TAU SAR PIAH

Got this recipe from the blog of a person by the name of Edith.


However, i found the amount of oil stated in the orginal recipe is too much thou. Therefore, i reduce it on my own. End result is really tasty. Look simple, but actually not. It takes me half a day to complete this. From soaking the green beans to baking the Tau Sar Piah.


Viola! Yummy yummy, never expect myself to be able to produce such good snack - mmm............ as good as the famous Penang Tau Sar Piah.....

wat's the point

Wat's the point of painting nice pictures only to be destroy by yourself.
Wat's the point of making promises only to be break.
Wat's the point of telling me wat u want to do but then the action is just
the reverse of your speech.

Wat's the point of telling me tat u want to study but are still keeping all
the late nights. (Infact, not late, it's sleepless nights). Where the hell
are u going to get energy if u are to study or work the next day.

i'm VERY TIRED!

Wat's the point of me trying so hard when the rest of the family couldn't
be bother at all!

Blog friend

Tdy, one of my previous blog friend talk to me over the MSN. He's quite neutral about wat happened. Glad that he still regard me as his friend. At least i know tat not all are angry with me. However, really worried tat others might boycott him if they think tat he also sided me. Actually shouldn't say sided, he's just being neutral. As such, told him to keep mum about the whole matter when he talks to the others. i really do not wish to create anymore unhappiness.

However, i'm not ready to share with him my new blog. Really afraid tat some thing like wat happened in my previous blog will happened again here. Therefore, can only keep these thoughts to myself and probably some unknown viewer (if there's any, but i doubt there will be any). So maybe many years later, when i read my own blog again, i would laugh or would cry again which i couldn't even predict myself. Or would i still be around to read my own blog many years later???

误会与谅解

让人误会的滋味真不好受,但是却不想做任何解释。唉。。。。。

最讨厌那些明明是自己心怀不愧,还在哪散风点火,唯恐天下不乱的人。不乞求谅解,自希望能平静的过活。

CHEDDAR CHEESE LOAF


CHEDDAR CHEESE LOAF


Make this quite some time ago. Tasty! It's a little like butter cake but softer and sweeter. Couldn't share the recipe becos it belongs to some body else even though this person no longer want to befriend me anymore becos of some misunderstanding. Even though she might no longer be reading this blog, (i have already closed my former blog, actually there's more nicer pictures and thoughts in tat other blog, closing it has cause me much heartache becos some of the pictures there are longer in my PC or thumb drive memory and i no longer can post those things anymore) however, a promise is a promise.

Guess it would takes me very long to forget this incident and i suddenly have becomes a person tat nobody likes or care about. Sigh................. I think this blog no longer has any viewer.............


宁缺勿滥

福建人说的:“无鱼虾也好”。错错错!!!!

广东人说的:“年晚煎堆,人有我也有”。错错错!!!!

我说呀!是要“宁缺勿滥”。

Especially when choosing life partner, 绝不能有“无鱼虾也好”和“人有我也有”的态度,否则会后悔莫及啊!

Lousy Kite flyer

Nowsaday it is really getting more and more difficult to communicate with teenagers. Don't ask about their daily activities, they say you are not concern about their well beings and tat you couldn't be bother about them. Ask and check on them, they say you ask too much and you want to control them. Sigh............. so difficult.................

Some would say one must treat it like flying a kite - must know when to pull and tighten the string and when to release n let go, so tat it would fly high. However, cannot over tighten, otherwise, the string would break and the kite would fly off. But cannot let go too loosely too, otherwise, the kite won't fly high.

Sigh................ i'm definitely a lousy kite flyer.

Lifetime relationships

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real.
But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.



My friend forwarded this msg to me, i find it very meaningful, especially the phrase:

"Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on."

日夜颠倒

Just don't understand, why are there so many teenagers which live day as night and night as day. When the day break, tat's when they sleep. And when the nights fall, tat when they become active. Living this type of lifestyle, how to find a decent job? At least not in the current economy. This type of lifestyle is so unhealthy. Yet, knowing tat it is unhealthy, yet they lived this type of lifestyle. Just like, knowing that drugs and glue sniffing is back for them, yet they want to touch it. WHY? WHY?

NEW BLOG

Just re-created this blog. My previous blog was invaded by others. And it looks like there are people who is not happy with my previous blog. When i created my last blog, i have no intention of getting any publicity. It's just tat i was feeling bored back then, so i created a blog for me to write out my thoughts. Nevertheless, being KPO is my greatest mistake. I thought i just want to do as much to help for as long as i'm around this world. But little did i know that when i share the blog with fellow bloggers, there are some who is not happy and some who are very supportive. Of course, to write a blog without sharing may be rather meaningless, but then who cares! The most heart pain one is to be guessing who's the invader when i truely knew tat it's someone whom i know and have always respected who is imposing to be someone else and accusing me. I can only said tat when 2 persons doesn't agreed on a matter, tat's when quarrels would start. 当意见分歧时,好朋友也会变仇人。可悲真可悲!唉,不求天从人愿,但求问心无愧。
