Dedicated post to my sister with depression.

My sister is down with depression. She came to Singapore for a break last week, and I saw what a bad shape she was in. It began from work, I think. The workload was too much, and she endured for … Continue reading

小事一桩

这天早上,爸爸没上班。我们带了宝宝上学要到咖啡店吃早餐。在经过的花园看见四个大概小六, 穿着校服的学生在玩。 只见他们其中一人拿了一瓶可乐。摇晃之后打开瓶盖, 里面的可乐飞溅而出, 倒在公园地上。本来我没有要管什么。可是不久,这些学生就把可乐瓶子留在地上,要离开。仔细一看,是两瓶。地上有两处可乐倒满地的, 装可乐的塑料纸袋也留在公园的石凳上。 身为一个每天打扫的家庭主妇, 那个邋遢我实在看不过去。弄脏了地方, 还要留些垃圾给清洁工人收拾。 “诶!回来!” 我叫住他们。 “你们玩了的瓶子跟纸袋就这样丢了就走啊?” 同学有点不削, 却也有点害怕。四个人越走越远,要不理我。我继续骂。 “弄到整个地方肮肮脏脏就要跑掉啊?” 他们还不断回头,开始推卸,”不是我, 是他。。。” 越走越远。 “不要跑啊, 我知道你叫什么名, 等下我去学校跟校长说!” (其实我根本没看到他们胸前的名字,骗骗小孩而已) 这招有用。眼见是有点怕。在犹豫。我看是小朋友, 那个罪魁祸首好像想去收拾,又害怕在同学面前下不了台的样子,就鼓励他 “你不要不好意思,我没有骂你(明明就有), 你快点把东西拿去丢就好了。” 三个孬种坐在一个铁凳上, 那个罪魁祸首步履蹒跚地走去收拾。把可乐瓶子拾起来, 用塑料袋装起来。 我没有监督,应该有丢好吧。老实说我一直没什么信心他们会听话。公园里有些人,被不服从也有一点丢脸啦。哈哈。赶快走开去咖啡店吃早餐。 ****** 那个时候已经八点了。学校七点半上课, 这些孩子怎么没去上课, 穿着校服在公共场所破坏公物。越想越庆幸我插手干预这件事。你知道, 中国人是喜欢息事宁人的。本来别人的孩子不到我来管。可是穿着校服, 在公园那么肆无忌惮地玩闹。如果我们大人今天让他们过,那他们以为没有人敢管他们,以后不是更加放肆? 我想很倚老卖老地跟他们说, 孩子们, 这个美丽的公园是大人艰辛工作一起建立的。企容的你们爱怎样就怎样地糟蹋? 最可悲的是, … Continue reading

Some Notes on Photography

I’m learning something new in photography everyday, and it never ceases to amaze me how powerful black and white or sepia are, in conveying emotions. Erm, not that there’s much emotion here though. These were taken from my point and … Continue reading

勤俭持家

我妈说她从不随便乱丢东西,那天在她的厨房就看见这个: 超市买回来的东西包装用的胶带,她还留着贴在墙上以备日后有用。 上次回去的时候我们到mid valley 逛。我爸妈带了鱼宝宝一起出门。我看见我妈准备的宝宝袋,一条线条面巾,宝宝的奶粉奶瓶,还有一个小小纸袋里面几张特地撕出来的湿纸巾。很简单,甚至以现代妈妈来说 – “简陋” 的装备。可是我忘不了那袋湿纸巾。在充满七彩六色的宝宝产品年代,有种很怀旧,谦卑的感觉。 上一代女性的勤俭持家,在这一代的女性当中,已经慢慢消失了。
