马来西亚家人朋友 (1月 和 6月)

Dear English readers, please scroll down for English translation.

阳历年时忙考试,没回顾我在08年做了什么。
现在,试考了,农历年过了,回头看看,鼠年可真多姿多彩。

这两年来日子都很漂泊,去年可说是‘四海为家’的顶峰:-
在马来西亚和澳洲各住了三个月,其余的六个月则在加拿大。

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.

不知你们是否有许新年愿望?是否有定新年目标?

听说很多人都没怎么许愿定目标了。或许是因为目标常无法完成,经历太多的失望,所以,以一切随缘的心态来迎接新年就是了。

我嘛,则年复一年,从不间断地又许愿又定目标。还没认识Ed之前,我在新年除夕都不出门。当很多人在外派对疯狂尖叫时,我则留在家中,回顾过去的一年学了什么,和思考在新的一年想要做些什么。这是我为新年倒数的一套。

有个目标,生活有了个重心点,我做起事来也加把劲。今年没完成,没关系。尽了力就好了。明年再努力。我也常不能依时完成愿望。但都没放弃,一年年地做,至到完成为止。

可是,当Ed知道我这个除夕夜不出门的‘习俗’时,他几乎要喷饭,觉得我又‘畸形’又天真。他觉得生活不用太认真。于是,过去几年的新年除夕,他都有事无事地拉我出去凑热闹。

今年,碰巧我俩分两地庆新年,我没太失望,反而有点期待。因为,我又可以遵守我以前的‘习俗’。虽然,我和Ed出门狂庆新年后的第二天,我依然会写目标。可是,好像还是在除夕晚写下的较进心坎里。

好啦!我长篇大论了一番,其实是想和大家分享我在除夕夜写下的新年愿望和目标。

  • 第一,当然是希望家人个个身体健康快乐,一家和乐,出入平安。世界和平,真的不想天天打开报章都要伤心好一阵子。至于, 要有健康,就要努力经营。所以,新的一年,我和Ed要吃得健康,少在外吃。要多褒汤,多煮中药调身体。
  • 第二,爸爸生意顺利,Ed事业顺心。这个嘛,我虽帮不到,但我希望自己少发小姐脾气,不唠叨,做好家务。这样Ed回家时,可以好好休息恢复。(我怎么变成了个家庭主妇?哈!别问我,我自己也很惊讶!)
  • 第三,今年我决心考取加拿大的药剂执照。要拿执照,就有好几个试要考。最令我头痛的是,考试范围竟包括所有以前大学的科目。大学是七,八年前的事了,很多日常工作不需用到的死板知识已忘了。现在要重考,真讨厌。没办法啦,我拖了这么久,也是时候要面对了。
  • 第四,这两,三个月在马,要好好跟爸爸偷师,学好中医的临床经验。等我一拿到加国的永久居民证,就要跟多元诊所租间房来开始看病。虽有点战战兢兢的,可我已做好心理准备,知道我可能要等一段时间才有自己的病人。没关系,不踏出那一步就永远前进不了。还好,Ed也很支持我。
  • 第五,今年,我想开一个新的部落。新部落和这个日记式部落有点不同。在新的部落里,我希望分享一些中医保健常识。写写对中医的体验和思考,还有提供一些容易在家烹煮的草药茶剂。希望你们也会捧场啦。
    等新部落概念较完整时,会告诉你们多些。如果新部落受欢迎,希望有朝一日可以集合成书啦。嘻嘻!我又在发白日梦。至少,如果我的永久居民证申请继续拖延,我不可以工作时,我有个可以努力的目标。

暂时这么多。其实,我还有几个愿望。不过,知道自己性格不专注,很容易分心。定下越多目标越难实现,这个做一点,那个做一点,到头来什么都没好好完成。所以,今年五个就好啦。如果,我懒散了,或想要半途而废,或开始分心时,希望你们会提醒我,会为我加把油。嘻嘻!我太了解自己的弱点了。

你呢?你的新年愿望是什么?

愿共勉之。

回来马来西亚有几天了。一回来就很忙,忙着见亲戚朋友,参加婚礼等。

真的很高兴见到很多很久没见的朋友。

但没什么时间睡好,更不用说更新部落了。

可是,今天既然是新年,当然要祝大家新年快乐啦 !

希望你们健康快乐,在新的一年一一实现你们的梦想!

(上图是今年的悉尼新年烟花,它的壮观是世界著名的。在此和大家分享。

我以前在澳洲住了那么多年都还未亲身体验过,因为怕人多。

也以为我反正住在澳洲,要几时去都可以。

怎知现在去了加拿大,机会就渺茫了。

也没关系啦 ,看电视直播也不赖 🙂

可是,千万别学我哟。

想要做的事就尽力赶快完成它,不然会像我这样错失了机会。)

I have been back to Malaysia for a few days but has been very busy since. Busy with catching up with friends and family, as well as attending weddings. Since I came back, I have not had time to catch up with my sleep, and of course, did not have time at all to write any post.

Today is New Year, of course, no matter how busy I am, I want to wish everyone a very happy new year !! Wish you a very happy and healthy year, may all your dreams come true in 2008 !

(The photo above is the fireworks at Sydney Harbour this new year. I have been living in Australia for so many years but never experienced this one of the world most spectacular fireworks. The reason I never wanted to go because I really don’t like the huge crowd. Also, I thought I was living in Australia anyway, I could go any year whenever I feel like. But now, I am living in Toronto, the chances of going to Sydney to watch new year fireworks are, of course, much lesser. Anyway, watching the live show in TV is not too bad too 🙂 However, please don’t learn from me. Hope you will go all out to do what you always want to do, don’t leave things behind like me till you miss the opportunity. All the very best ! )
