感恩:人生的功课



Thanks aunt for sharing this article.

一名成績優秀的青年去申請一個大公司的經理職位。

One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.
他通過了第一級的面試,董事長做最後的面試,做最 後的決定。
He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision.

董事長從該青年的履歷上發現,該青年成績一 貫優秀,從中學到研究生從來沒有間斷過。
The director discovered from the CV, that the youth's academic result is excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never has a year he did not score.

董事長問,你在學校裏拿到獎學金嗎?該青年回答,沒有。
The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarship in school?" and the youth answered "none".

董事長問,是你的父親 為 您付學費嗎?該青年回答,我父親在我一歲時就去世了,是我的母親給我付的學費。
The director asked, " Is it your father pay for your school fees?" the youth answered, my father passed away when I was one year old, it is my mother who paid for my school fees.

董事長問,那你的母親是在那家公司高就?該 青年回答,我的母親是給人洗衣服的。
董事長要求該青年把手伸給他,該青年把一雙潔白的手伸給董事長。
The director asked, " Where did your mother worked?" the youth answered, my mother worked as cloth cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hand, the youth showed a pair of hand that is smooth and perfect to the director.

董事長問,你幫你母 親 洗過衣服嗎?該青年回答,從來沒有,我媽總是要我多讀書,再說,母親洗衣服比我快得多。
The director asked, " Did you ever help your mother washed the cloth before?" The youth answered, never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books, furthermore, my mother can wash cloths faster than me.
董事長說,我有個要求,你今天回家,給你母 親洗一次雙手,明天上午你再來見我。
The director said, I had a request, when you go back today, go and help to clean your mother's hand, and then see me tomorrow morning.
該青年覺得自己成功的可能很大,回到家後,高高興 興地要給母親洗手,母親受寵若驚地把手伸給孩子。
The youth felt that its chance of landing the job is high, when he went back, he happily wanted to clean his mother's hand, his mother feel strange, happy but mixed with fear, she showed her hand to the kid.

該 青年給母親洗著手,漸漸 地,眼淚掉下來了,因為他第一次發現,他母親的雙手都是老繭,有個傷口在碰到水時還疼得發抖。
The youth cleaned his mother's hand slowly, his tear drop down as he did that. It is first time he found his mother's hand is so wrinkled, and there are so many bruises in her hand. Some bruises incites pains so strong that shiver her mother's body when cleaned with water.
青年第一次體會到,母親就是 每天用這雙有傷口的手洗衣服為他付學費,母親的這雙手就是他 今天畢業的代價。
This is the first time the youth realized and experienced that it is this pair of hand that washed the cloth everyday to earn him the school fees, the bruises in the mother's hand is the price that the mother paid for his graduation and academic excellence and probably his future.
該青年給母親洗完手後,一聲不響地把母親剩下要洗 的衣服都洗了。
After finishing the cleaning of his mother hand, the youth quietly cleaned all remaining clothes for his mother.
當天晚上,母親和孩子聊了很久很久。
That night, mother and sons talked for a very long time.

第二天早上,該青年去見董事長。
Next morning, the youth went to the director's office

董事長望著該青年紅腫的眼睛,問到,可以告訴我你昨天回家做了些什麼嗎?
The director noticed the tear in the youth's eye, asked: " Can you tell you what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?"
該青年回答說,我給母親洗完手之後, 我幫母親把剩下的衣服都洗了。
The youth answered, " I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes'
董事長說,請你告訴我你的感受。
The director asked, " please tell me your feeling."

該青年說,第一,我懂得了感恩,沒有我 母親,我不可能有今天。第二,我懂得了要去
和母親一起勞動,才會知道母親的辛苦。第三,我懂得了家庭親情的可貴
The youth said, Number 1, I knew what is appreciation, without my mother, there would not the successful me today. Number 2, I knew how to work together with my mother, then only I can realize how difficult and tough to get something done. Number 3, I knew the importance and value of family relationship.

董事長說,我就是要錄取一個會 感恩,會體會別人辛苦,不是把金錢當作人生第一目標的人來當經理。你被錄取了。
The director said, " This is what I am asking, I want to recruit a person that can appreciate the help of other, a person that knew the suffering of others to get thing done, and a person that would not put money as his only goal in life to be my manager. You are hired.
這位青年後來果真工作努力,深得職工擁護,員工也 都努力工作,整個公司業績大幅成長。
Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates, every employees worked diligently and in a team, the company's result improved tremendously.

假如一位孩子從小嬌生慣養,習 慣了被人圍著寵著,什麼都是“我”第一,父母的辛苦都不知道,上班後,以為同事都應該聽他的, 當了經理後,不知道員工的辛苦,還要怨天尤人。這樣的人,會有好的學校成績,會有得意風光的一時,但社會上的這 類人,都不能成大事,都不會感覺到幸福,都要跌跟鬥,那父母是愛孩子呢還是害孩子呢?
A child who has been protected and habitually given whatever he did, he developed "entitlement mentality" and always put himself first. He is ignorance of his parent's effort. When he started work, he assumed every people must listen to him, and when he became a manager, he would never know how suffering his employee and always blame others. For this kind of people, he can have good result, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement, he will grumble and full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parent, did we love the kid or destroy the kid?
你可以讓你的孩子住 大房子,吃大餐,學鋼琴,看大屏電視,但你在割草時,也要讓 你的孩子在大太陽下拔拔野草,你在吃飯後,也要讓你的孩子洗洗碗,不是你沒有錢雇人,而是你真心愛孩子。你要讓 孩子知道,即使父母掙不少錢,但早早的白髮,和那位洗衣服的母親沒有本質的差別。但更重要的是,要讓你的孩子學 會感恩。
You can let your kid lived in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experienced it. After a meal, let them washed their plate and bowl together with their brothers and sisters. It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way. You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parent are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person. The most important thing is your kid learn how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learn the ability to work with others to get thing done.

How you know you have found the guy who loves you-->When he says



Just The Way You Are

Oh, her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day

Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so, sad to think that she don't see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look ok, I say

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Because you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are

Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she let me
Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it's so sexy
She's so beautiful, and I tell her every day

Oh, you know, you know, you know, I'd never ask you to change
If perfect's what you're searching for then just stay the same
So, don't even bother asking if you look ok
You know I'll say

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Because you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are
The way you are, the way you are
Girl you're amazing, just the way you are

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change
Because you're amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you're amazing, just the way you are. Yeah


*When he thinks you are beautiful even if you are wearing your sloppy pyjamas without any makeup*

:D

Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas - This Is Me

You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
I need to find you
I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you
I gotta find you


I wonder what the psychiatrists would make out of these lyrics.
Erotomanic delusion with auditory hallucinations :p

What's left of my dear home country




Whenever anyone asked me what my future is like, I can't give a definite answer. As much as I wish to be home and contribute to the development of my dear home country, I just can't be pushed around anymore. Despite 53years after gaining independence, the mindset of the authority is still backward. Who does not want to be home? To be around whom they love? But, what if this means that I am going to be discriminated against for the rest of my life?

I hesitate.


Nothing much I can do to change things. I am neither famous nor affluent. Look at what has happened to those who just want to tell the truth.

Not that I will express my anger and frustration using the strong words used in the video. But how long will it take before the leaders wake up from the delusion?

I love my country but my country does not love me.

The original song by Namewee.




* It is not my intention to defame by posting these videos. The songs do not fully represent my view, but merely that of the artists. *

A friend posted the English version on facebook.
So I youtubed the mandarin version.

This song is a patriotic song for Singapore. But I love it, love the lyrics.

I have not listened to this song for a while.
Yet I am always on the verge of tears contemplating the lyrics.
Very touched.
Home is the place I would rather be.
Even though I might have been to so many other corners of the world.

*Miss home*
What a beautiful song!

每一次我感到彷徨 不自禁就会回头望
我知道心中有个地方 一定会有一盏灯
照亮每一颗黑暗的心房 指引未来方向
沿着生命河流向前航 就能登陆理想

我的家 收藏 我的欢喜悲伤
只要点燃希望 梦就会自由飞翔
我的家 给我 一双坚定翅膀
我的梦 不论在何方 一生的爱 唯有家

再也不会感到彷徨 不会再失意回头望
我要用心中一点烛光 燃放千万户辉煌
要让繁华的城市更灿烂 世界和平共享
全凭生命河流来导航 一起登陆理想
全凭生命河流来导航 一起登陆理想

This is Home Truly
  Where I know I must be
  Where my Dreams wait for me
  Where that river always flows

  This is Home Truly
  All my Senses tell me
  This is where I won't be Alone
  For this is where I know it's home

New blogger background

I was just experimenting with the template designer.
And thought this background suits me a lot.
I wish my heart is like autumn--quiet but has irresistible beauty.
The kind of solace that is different from the frigid winter.
The kind of peace that is away from distractions in summer.
The kind of isolation that is devoid of blossoms.


I have not written anything for quite an extended period of time.
I have been too preoccupied with studies.
Not exactly good because I think I am obsessed about it.
But I will do my best :)
