情人节快乐!

情人节快乐!

photo by : Evoo73

我对浪漫这个玩意儿没什么要求。我不喜欢情情爱爱的电影和小说。 对我来说,那些东西有些造作和肉麻,也不真实。 所以,Ed是个幸福的男人。不用花脑筋来取我欢心。

可是,昨天 (加拿大的13日), 当其他国家的情人庆祝着情人节时,我没留意到,竟然写了篇‘新年展望’的贴字!啊 !真是太糟糕,太不识情趣了!亲爱的朋友读者们,真不好意思。现在补上,祝你们情人节快乐。

我们今天怎么庆祝呢?嗯,什么都没。我们不要出去吃晚餐,因为人多,我不喜欢。那些什么烛光晚餐的,我不习惯。一碗越南牛肉河粉或一碟泰式青咖哩饭已令我很开心。Ed说,‘唉呀!忘了买鲜花给你!’ ‘不用啦!’ 这句话是真心的。所以,他就真的不买了。哈哈!

不过,我们当然有对彼此说 ‘情人节快乐’ 啦。其实,我天天都会对Ed说 ’I love you babe’ 。 嘻嘻。那不代表我是浪漫的人。我知道Ed很受不了这些肉麻的用语。他越讨厌,我越爱作弄他! 他是个木头,不喜欢这套 – 什么爱我啦,一生一世啦。他不说,我不逼,或者,我放弃逼他。心里知道就好。干嘛逼自己喜欢的人做他不自在的事。

嗯….或许,明天才去餐馆吃晚餐吧。

Happy Valentine's Day !

Happy Valentine's Day !

photo by : blmurch

I am never a romantic person, and I rarely watch/read lovey-dovey movies or novels. Frankly, I find them a little awkward or quite fake. Well, do you really believe in real life men will do all those things the movies and novels tell you they will do? I don’t.  Hence, Ed is a lucky man because I don’t expect any of those things from him.

Anyway, because of I am obviously oblivious of the Valentine’s Day, I posted a New Year Resolution post yesterday (13th in Canada but 14th in most countries), instead of something romantic ! I guess this shows how unmindful I am to all the fuss by the commercials and media on this V-Day.  Nonetheless, to all my friends and readers, wish you all a Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day.

How are we going to celebrate today? Umm…nothing special. We don’t want to go out to eat because we don’t like the crowd. I don’t really care about the candle night dinner because I won’t be comfortable with it anyway. A good bowl of Vietnamese noodles soup or Thai Curry Chicken will make me equally happy ! Ed said, ‘ Oh no ! I forgot to buy you flowers !’ ‘ No worries, it is ok. I don’t care.’ So, he does not.

Yet, of course, we still say Happy V-Day to each other today. In fact, I tell him I love him everyday. Heehee…not because I am a romantic person. Ed is someone who hates this lovey-dovey fuss, and the more he hates it, the more I like to say it to annoy him ! On the other hand, knowing him well, I never force him to say those things to me, or maybe I just give up. What’s the point ? Since deep down I know how much he loves me.

Back to this V-Day, maybe we will go out to eat tomorrow. Shall see…

With Family & friends in Malaysia (Jan & Jun)

I was very busy with exam during the New Year, did not get the chance to review my 2008 year. Exam is finally over and (Chinese) New Years came and gone, finally, I have the time to sit down, to reflect on my 2008 year. Looking back, it was indeed a great and interesting year.

For the past two years, I have been dividing my times between Malaysia, Australia and Canada, and last year was my most traveled and drifting year. I lived 3 months each in Malaysia and Australia, the rest of the six months in Canada.

“新婚生活怎么样啊?”

婚后,很多人问。

“没什么不同啊。都是一样。”

我觉得这个答案是好现象。

很多人说,婚后,男的女的,都会‘原形毕露’。

还好,我和Ed都是‘坦率’的人。

所有缺点很早前已‘很自然’地表现出来了。

我的小姐脾气,他牛一样的固执。

算了,习惯就好。;)

人人说,结婚就代表互相尊重,彼此接受,缺点和优点,对吗?

这个,我深深相信。

其实,我们已达很高境界 – 爽脆和幽默。

高兴不高兴的,都拿出来讲。谈下谈下,很快就会多了解。

暂时解决不了的,幽彼此一默,笑了后,有些执着好像已不重要。

所以,生活上是没问题的。

除了吵些无聊的,天天都开开心心。

啊!对了,婚后,唯一不同和不习惯的,就是,我们都不爱戴我们的结婚戒指….

回来多伦多约一个星期了。 这阵子我都与时差的不适'战斗'着。多伦多与吉隆坡的时差为十二个小时。这里的中午十二点即吉隆坡的午夜十二点。 所以,我在中午会很疲倦,会睡上好几个小时。晚上呢,就会睡不着,或早上四,五点就爬起身来。这两天,好了些。

离开多伦多有四个月左右吧。除了季节的转变,其余的就如四个月前我离开的一样。就好像不曾离开过。

只是,心情有点不同了。上次来此,算是放自己一个长假,也是为了尝试多伦多的生活,见见Ed 的家人朋友。这次,这里变得熟悉了。而且,完成了在墨尔本的学业,也变卖或捐赠了在墨的一切。现在,没了这些牵挂。也许,算是新生活的真正开始吧。

可是,还在等着加拿大的永久居民证,暂是游客身份。再说,我还要再考药剂师的执照,才可以工作。加上,Ed的工作形式多为合约式。我们可能会再搬到别地也难说。听起来有点困难重重。哈! 这证明爱情有多伟大,把我从老远吸引过来 ! (或也是盲目的 😉 )

我暂也不想多想。暂顺其自然吧。想看看在打开生命的另一扇门时,另一边的风景如何。

现在, 我只想要好好享受多伦多夏天的阳光。这也是我要早点回来的原因。上个冬天把我冷得怕了。虽夏天已过了一半, 可我就喜欢现在的阳光, 不是熨人的热, 只是懒懒地温暖。 Ed也已迫不急待地为我编排了一系列的节目。:)

和Ed在一起已有三年多了。

除了他在澳洲工作的十个月时间,我俩都是一个在北 (美加), 一个在南 (澳洲)。

前一,两年,我俩通常是电话联络。

最近一年,我们开始用另一个方式‘谈恋爱’- Skype。

诚心感激先进的科技,让我俩的感情可以维系 😉

当然,没有彼此的信任,了解和要在一起的决心,再先进的科技也帮不到我们。

现在,我只希望我俩能像平常的情侣一般,可以一起吃饭看戏,不只是对着电脑说笑。

(photo taken by Ed in Canada, while I am in Malaysia)

Ed and I have been going out for more than three years. Apart from his ten months work in Australia, most of the times, we are thousands of miles apart – he is in USA or Canada, and I am in Australia.

For the first couple of years, we communicated through phone calls. In the recent a year or two, we started to ‘date’ through Skype 😉 Thanks to the modern technology that helps us two to keep our long distance relationship. Of course, without each other’s trust, understanding and determination to be together, no advanced technology can help in any way.

What I really wish now is most couples already have – just to be able to spend times together, rather than ‘talking’ to and ‘laughing’ with the ‘computer’ most of the times.

昨晚,我决定炒上海炒面。这是第一次试煮。 很久以前看过烹饪书。

煮到一半, 那时一切还好。 正当要加上海面时,我看了看那上海面,似乎有些粉。

正犹疑 要不要先用水分开煮一煮, 才与其他材料一齐炒。

照常理, 我通常都会如此做。

可是, 昨晚不知是一时想偷懒,还是在发白日梦,没过水,就把上海面丢进去炒。

结果是当然是不堪设想 !

还以为可以为Ed准备爱心午餐。

难怪他常取笑我-烹饪没他棒,清洗没他勤,家居修理当然不是他那家。

算了,让他都做完,我享受,也正合我心意。

他说,要我这个女友有何用。

我的女性朋友说我“拾到宝”。:D

听朋友说,在香港,有人在网上,鼓吹“三不买” – 在情人节,不买礼物,不买鲜花,不买晚餐。 问题主要来自商家在情人节当天故意把价格调得特高。害得男的钱包很惨。虽然,这根本不能衡量对一个人的感情。可是,有些女的,觉得当天的表现很重要。

唉!多得商家及传播界的努力。把爱情这样来”扭转”。希望大家别陷入这个圈套。

三不买 – 我赞成!!

希望别误会,我不是不站在女方。只是觉得这样花钱,有些浪费, 也“益”了商家。礼物,鲜花,晚餐,不一定要在情人节当天买。

突然,有个小小建议 – 不如,用那些钱一起去报名学些两人都有兴趣的东西。学的不一定要太认真,短程的就很好。如:画画,艺术或电影欣赏,跳舞,等等。一起学一些东西两三个月,可能更能增进感情。

可是,我也明白,男的有时会比较懒学东西,除了电脑或游戏。

总之,先“益”自己,别“益”商家!!
