Archive for the ‘思考中医 Chinese Medicine’ Category

元宵过了,新的一年正式开始。哈哈,人人的新年在阳历一月一日就开始了, 我的现在才开始。没办法啦,我这人总是慢半拍!

写了08回顾后,我拿了去年定下的新年愿望来看看,很惊讶也很高兴, 原来自己还真完成了好几项(除了第五项) 。虽不是每项都做足一百分,不过总算很努力。

今年的愿望和去年的很相似。

  • 第一 , 安康快乐。吃要吃得健康,继续煲汤,喝茶,学煮一手好菜给Ed (当然也给自己啦)。
  • 第二,修心养性,少发小姐脾气。
  • 第三,要更努力学好中医。回马时,继续向爸爸学习。希望今年好好研读《黄帝内经》和专注妇产科。
  • 第四,部落搬家。突然觉得这里的文章有点散乱,想搬家和整理一下。搬家时会通知大家。
  • 第五,这个嘛,要看我在哪个国家。基于种种原因,我正考虑着回澳十个月左右。如决定留在加拿大,要继续考药剂牌,还有好几张试卷。如回澳洲,要回大学读针灸学。这也是我一直想取得的学位。

五个够啦,不可太贪心。至于,去年没完成的第五项 (开一个中医知识部落格),再看吧。

Finally, the traditional 15-day long Chinese New Year is officially finished a few days ago. So, my ‘new year’ is officially started. Well, I know most people’s new years have started from 1st January.   But for me, who studied so hard for exam, I allow myself to start the new year later. Heehee…

To start a new year, I normally begin with a few new year determinations. Looking back at my 2007 new year resolutions, I am quite surprised and a little overwhelmed that I DID achieve most of them (except no.5) ! Although I can’t say I have achieved them 100% (those goals require continuous effort anyway), at least,  I have tried my best. For example, for someone so fussy like Ed, complimented on my cooking, I think I am doing ok 😉  .

To keep up with the flow and the continuity, this year resolutions are similar to last year.

  1. Oh happiness and health !  Continue my effort in becoming a better cook, eat more at home, drink more teas and boil more soups. All for Ed, of course, for myself too 😉
  2. Just wanna be a better person, so will start with whine less to my hubby !
  3. Continue to improve and deepen my knowledge and experiences in Chinese Medicine. It is my greatest treasure to have a dad who has more than 30 years of experience in Chinese Medicine, so learning from him is a must this year. Hope to focus my studies in Gynaecology and the thousands year-old classic <Yellow Emperor’s Canon Internal Medicine>.
  4. Move this blog to a new domain. I suddenly realised how messy this blog is, moving will help me to do some cleaning up. Will keep everyone in loop if I move.
  5. Ummm….this no.5 will depend on where I will be living this year. Due to a few reasons, I am considering moving back to Australia for 10 months. If I decide to stay in Canada, I will continue my journey to become a registered pharmacist here. If I go back to Australia, I may go back to university to pick another master degree. This time acupuncture, something I wish to do for a while.

Ok, five goals are enough. Don’t want to put too much on myself.

What about the no. 5 goal last year (start a new blog on Chinese Medicine) ? Ummm….shall see….

这次回马,有一个重要的原因 – 就是要跟爸爸学习中医。所以,这三个星期来,都坐在爸爸的诊所内旁听。

有个现象,我觉得很值得思考。我发现,有蛮多的病人是年轻人。即使是中年人,很多时候中年时病发,也是因为年轻时没照顾好身子。 生病已不再是老年人的专利。

很多身体上的毛病归根究地,多起因于学业或工作压力,或饮食不适,或情绪不稳定。

年轻人在长期学业,接着工作上的压力的压迫下,透不过气来。因压力,学习或工作时间就越长,天天开夜班至深夜。可能连发梦都会梦见工作。不但,没足够的时间休息,也没时间自己煮。在外头吃,尤其在马来西亚,辣的,炸的,煎的,味精多多的,吃个不亦乐乎,却不知病从口入。加上,精神长期紧张下,脾气就暴躁,或怎样都开心不起来。

还有,华人总是有一种爱比较的心理。不管是父母,或是对自己。什么都好,一比下去,一定有人比自己好。这种不健康的心理,造成更大的,无形的生活和社会压力。使人更不开心,更要拼了命。

这是个恶性循环。 在这种情况下,身体哪会健康?

我知道,生活艰困,不拼就被人抛在后头。我知道,要趁年轻,好好捞一把。我知道,不做好,会被人看不起。我只希望,我们也同样放心机在健康上。

希望大家需要休息时,就好好学习放松下来。也希望吃得健康些,多做运动。心理感情上多做调适。看开些,多在心灵上努力。该放慢脚步时,就走得慢些吧。一路风景很好。别人怎样看是别人的事。如为了别人嘴巴说的,弄垮了自己的身体,值得吗?钱即使赚多了,又怎样?到最后还不是拿出来交医药费。我看着这些年轻人,年纪轻轻就那么多病痛,以后年长了会怎么样。

健康要紧啊!

前几天, 收到一个惊喜。 我在RMIT 中医系认识到的同学寄来上面这张相片。很感动!

他们是学士班的学生。 虽我是硕士班的,认识到他们是因为我有一学科和他们一起上。后来,我们也在学生诊所一起实习而熟络起来。其实,认识他们的时间不算长, 没想到他们为我搞个送别会(相片的中间),我也收到一些礼物。。很被他们的真诚及友情感动。

很高兴再见到那一张张亲切的脸孔及笑容 – 有同学,也有我敬爱的老师。很怀念实习的那段日子....

在此特别谢谢他们!回去澳洲时,一定会去找他们!

A couple of days ago, I received a nice surprise from my chinese medicine school friends. They sent me the above photo. I was so touched !

They are the students from undergraduate course. Although I am from postgraduate course, I got to know them through the clinical hours in the student clinic, as well as classes of an undergraduate subject. I was very touched by their effort to put together a farewell for me before I left Australia. I also received some lovely presents from them. For the fact that we don’t really know each other for too long, I was so touched by their sincerity and frienships !

I am so happy to see their familar faces and lovely smiles again in the photo above – not only the students, also the lecturers I respect. It reminds me of those good memories in the student clinic…

Just want to say a big thank you to them here, as well as my warmest regards to them !Will definitely catch up with them when I return to Australia !

因要去Ed朋友公司帮忙,加上最近另一个朋友四十“大寿”,要帮忙做一个DVD。裁缝班 (对, 我也学着裁缝)的功课多了。 加上,要开始写我的硕士论文。悠闲的生活突然变得很忙碌。今天休假一天,决定不写这个My Healthy Day的文章。

其实, 想起来,这也算是健康的信息。 我以前的日子很忙。 主要的原因也是自己的缺点- 很贪心, 很信不过人,什么都要拿来做,什么都要自己做。很多时候会逼得自己很惨,有时会为了完成一些东西而吃睡不定时。以前,有一个朋友常劝我,要学会放慢脚步。现在,我 比较会区分优先次序,也不会把东西抓得太紧。不太要紧的, 迟些做也可以。有时候,身心或精神要休息,就放一放假。这样会健康一 点。

在此想起,《黄帝内经》 – 一本最古老的中医经典 内的一段对话 :

“…乃问于天师日:余闻上古之人,春秋皆度百岁,而动作不衰;今时之人,年半百而动作皆衰者,时世异耶?人将失之耶?

岐伯对日:上古之人,其知道者,法于阴阳,和于术数,食饮有节,起居有常,不妄作劳,故能形与神俱,而尽终其天年,度百岁乃去。今时之人不然也,以酒为浆,以妄为常,醉以入房,以欲竭其精,以耗散其真,不知持满,不时御神,务快其心,逆于生乐,起居无节,故半百而衰也。”

共勉之。

后记: 唉,说不写,我还是写了一大堆 ! 要多向古人学习。
