我’有幸’体验到多伦多近十年来最严重的暴风雪。

昨天一整天,雪不停地下,不停地下….

我和Ed穿得厚厚地跑出去‘赏雪。

因积雪有20至30公分高,步步艰辛,才绕公寓一圈,我已气喘如牛。

今早,雪小了,轻轻地飘。

太阳跑了出来, 人们也出来了。我也出去拍拍照片。

阳光反射在洁白的雪上,好美好美。

人们暂抛开要清理那么多的雪的烦恼,先快乐地享受….

I was ‘fortunate’ enough to have the chance to experience the worst snowstorm in nearly ten years in Toronto.

The snow was pouring non-stop yesterday.

Ed and I went out during the storm, well, for an experience. It was rare chance.

The streets were covered by 20 to 30 cm of snow and was extremely difficult to walk.

We only walked around our apartment but I was already quite exhausted.

This morning, though still snowing, only lightly.

Sun is out, people are out too. Me too, taking my camera for some photos.

Temporarily ignoring the need to clean up the mess, people want to first enjoy the sunshine-filled beautiful snowwhite city ….

这次去蒙特利尔一张照片都没拍到。反正为了见朋友,专心聊天就是了。加上,我也不懂怎么在这种又暗又湿的景象拍出好东西。我的朋友是摄影高手, 我也不好意思在高手面前献丑。

怎知,回到多伦多,才后悔没拍到秋末寒冷的蒙特利尔。所以,唯有向Daniel要了张照片留念。他好厉害!拍得真的好漂亮。在此与大家分享。谢谢了,Daniel !

拍这张照片时, 天空中已飘着雪片…..街上一片冷清….

It was rare to catch up with a friend, let alone someone from Australia. We met up in Montreal. It was very wet and dark while we were there. I knew I was not capable of take any good photos in such conditions. In addition, my friend, Daniel is a keen photographer and I knew I feel embarrassed to take photos in front of an “expert” 😉

When I returned to Toronto, I regretted that decision. No matter how poor the quality would be, I should have  a photo of Montreal in late autumn/early winter. I asked Daniel to send me one of his photos. The photo is so quite well taken and rather beautiful (see above)! Thank you Dan!

P.S. It was already snowing when the picture was taken.

Do you believe sunset can be so stunning in front of your apartment ?

The photo was taken by my boyfriend in Toronto last evening.

Though I missed the sunset, it definitely brightens up my spirit to study for the two upcoming big, fat exams on next Monday 🙂

黄大仙庙是香港著名的寺庙。听说它有求必应。我在十年前旅港时,曾慕名而来, 见识过它的香火鼎盛。这次旧地重游。朋友笑问我是为求签吗,我说没啦。

这次人不多。没上次把我薰得头晕的浓浓烟火。不知是今年香港经济好转了,人安稳了, 就少来这了。还是因为时间不对,人潮未到。

Wang Tai Sin Temple is a famous temple in Hong Kong, it is famous for its god to grant whatever is requested. Ten years ago, during my first visit to Hong Kong, I came here – saw hundreds of people praying sincerely and could feel their earnest plea to the god.

It is also famous for its fortune telling. The worshippers light worship sticks, kneel before the main altar, make a wish, and shake a bamboo cylinder containing fortune sticks until one falls out. The stick is exchanged for a piece of paper bearing the same number, and the soothsayer then interprets the fortune on the paper for the worshipper. Friends teased me if I wanted to ask for my fortune, I smiled and said no.

The temple was quieter this time. Probably because Hong Kong economic has finally improved over the last year, people have more stable life and find fewer reasons to visit here. Or simply because I came at the wrong time and the crowd had not arrived yet.

难得清静,我在那逗留了至少三十多分钟,可相中的老婆婆也在那拜了那么久。我站在一个角落,手提相机,一边拍照,一边在想 :不知老婆婆在为什么烦恼,为了什么求签。人老了,该没什么可求的。我想,是担心子女儿孙吧。

看她那虔诚, 看她那忧忧的神情,我不禁也起了个祈愿。默默地为老婆婆祈求,希望她老人家健康安稳,子女儿孙渡过难关,可好好孝顺她,让她享一享清福。

Whatever the reason, I enjoyed the quietness and had stayed there for more than half an hour. The old lady in the photo was there praying, shaking the cylinder containing fortune sticks over and over again for the same amount of time. I stood quietly in a corner, while taking many photos of hers, I was wondering what bothering her and what were her wishes. For her age, I guess probably nothing could bother her anymore except worrying of her children or grandchildren.

I was touched by her sincerity and concerned by her distressing look, I found myself praying – praying for her health and happiness, praying for her children or grandchildren to be able to overcome all obstacles in life, hence able to look after her well and to provide her with a better life….

(Dear English readers, please scroll down for English translation.)

约两个星期前的周末,老天爷大发慈悲,赐给多伦多好天气。

於是,我和Ed一大早跑去Bloor West逛及吃早餐。Bloor West是东欧人聚住的地区。 主街上有许多东欧式的店铺。我最高兴看到的是各式各样的东欧蛋糕及甜品一一 摆在店窗后,很令人垂涎欲滴 ! 我虽爱甜品,那天很乖,忍得住, 没吃 !:-)

吃了早餐后, 我们延着 High Park, 一路走到Lake Ontario。因天气好,很多人都出来享受阳光 – 有一家大小地出来逛或野餐,有妈妈推着婴儿车散步,有爸爸与儿子踢球,有情人手拖手, 有人听着iPod跑步,有人牵着狗走….

Ed告诉我,这里的夏天会更热闹, 更人山人海。 冬天时,人们困在家里困够了,夏天会一涌而出。三个月的夏天,有数不清的节目。 我想,加拿大人和澳洲人相似,比较会享受生活。加上,这里的空气清新,污染不严重。想起我在亚洲的生活,要野餐也难,吸进的可能都是尘埃。逛的大多数都是一间建得比一间大的购物商场。倒是有一种生活我很想念,加拿大也没有的,那就是夜市场 (pasar malam)。:-)

路上也见到一群群的加拿大雁。它是鹅类的一种。当我要拍照时,Ed吩咐我要小心,千万不可侵犯到它们的孩子,不然这种鹅会很凶。跟据我在网上读的资料,这种鹅是群居性鸟类,五大湖地区保持着很大数目。它们也会迁徙,过冬的地区多数在美国。现在在加国见到它们,像征着春天已到。

来到Lake Ontario时,看到那飘在湖面的冰片,对我来说是新奇。Lake Ontario坐落于多伦多市的南端。它是北美洲五大湖之一。面积约为18千平方公里,约为新加坡的25倍大。在多伦多人心中,它是他们心中的一片海洋。一个多伦多的朋友告诉我,除了Lake Ontario, 她从没见过海洋,没见过浪潮。至到她去Carribean渡假时,才有机会为海的冲浪振奋。

我和Ed在那天走了好几个小时。回家前,去了间pub,喝杯啤酒…过了一个湖.蓝天的周末…
