Quotas to be happy and quotas to be sad

We should have a fixed amount of sadness and
a fixed amount of happiness in life.

So when we are sad,
we are consuming our sadness,  
and our sadness in our whole life is lessened. 
So just allow ourselves to be sad as we know that we should consume them, othewise,
more sadness will attack us 
at the later part of our life that is not desirable.
 
So when we are happy,
we are consuming our happiness,  
and our happiness in our whole life is lessened. 
So don't let ourselves be too happy as we know that we should consume them, othewise,
less happiness will come to us 
at the later part of our life that is not desirable.


曾路得 ~ 那一天  




再見舊友 感觸萬千
舊日笑聲似在眼前
敘敘往日舊情誼
問問抱負與心願
世界在轉 星光在閃
萬物也適應自然
現在你或未如願
命運每天都變遷
得者莫喜 輪流轉風光變
失者莫憂 仍能等那一天 呀
以往大志今天沒展
舊日理想我沒法圓
但是以後或如願
夢幻理想在前面
再見舊友 感觸萬千
舊日笑聲似在眼前
敘敘往日舊情誼
問問抱負與心願
世界在轉 星光在閃
萬物也適應自然
現在你或未如願
命運每天都變遷
得者莫喜 輪流轉風光變
失者莫憂 仍能等那一天 呀
以往大志今天沒展
舊日理想我沒法圓
但是以後或如願

Loose ends to fix life

Life can never be perfect!

So we cannot always aim to
achieve something perfectly in life,
just as we cannot always get 100% full marks 
for our examinations in schools, despecially when we are advanceing to higher levels of studying. We can hardly get full marks for tertiary courses.   

So we should learn to accept imperfectness.

Or we would feel very frustrated or become every stressful if when we are in the state of imperfectness when doing something.


We should allow some possible loose ends for
anything we have done,  
the loose ends may be something that cannot be achieved, or something that can be ignored
without affecting the whole matter.

Loose ends are the strong anchors
to keep us afloat and ashore, 
loose ends are saving ends in life~

AABB --AA Baby

Recently, there is a piece of news reporting that a pair of lovers fought against each other and
the Police was finally called to the scene to settle the case.

The fight was caused by the female insisting in 
having AA for the meal
while the male wanted to pay for the female also.

Becuase of this incident,
I like to grant a special name "AA Baby" to this lady, !
She is such a lovely baby, a fair lady! 

For we Hongkong people,
AA, when applied to paying bills, means "All Average" or "Arithmetic Average".
Each attendant of the meal pays his/her fair share for the meal.    

In English, the terms used is "going Dutch".

Some people wanted to be treated,
but there are always some others who do not want to be treated. 

Yes, a fair share prevents possible future obligations
arising from the "free meal".

You know, there is no free lunch for normal social interactions!

Descriptive song not a prescriptive song"

Rodriguez once said that 
Sugar Man is a descriptive song not a prescriptive song.
But I don't think so, a descriptive song is descrptive in words, but a descriptive song can be prescrptive in music.
 
Sugar Man is prescriptive.
When we listen to the song, 
its beautful melody comforts you,
yet it can at the same time give you a feeling of horrowness
when it is telling you about the story of the people who want to take drugs.
It surely remind you not to take drugs as
it cannot save you from miserable life at all!

Sugar man
Won't ya hurry
Coz I'm tired of these scenes
For a blue coin
Won't ya bring back
All those colours to my dreams

Silver magic ships, you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man
Met a false friend
On a lonely, dusty road
Lost my heart
When I found it
It had turned to dead, black coal

Silver magic ships, you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man
You're the answer
That makes my questions disappear

Sugar man
Coz I'm weary
Of those double games I hear
Sugar man [x7]

Sugar man
Won't ya hurry
Coz I'm tired of these scenes
For a blue coin
Won't ya bring back
All those colours to my dreams

Silver magic ships, you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man
Met a false friend
On a lonely, dusty road
Lost my heart
When I found it
It had turned to dead, black coal

Silver magic ships, you carry
Jumpers, coke, sweet Mary Jane

Sugar man
You're the answer
That makes my questions disappear

A mind-journey within the body


Sometimes, we can be very depressed
with a whole body of negative energy.
I once read an article
which taught me how to get rid of the negative energy:
Use your mind as a vehicle, sort of a rubbish sweeper vehicle,
to start an imaginative journey from the head, 
first to reach the forehead,
then two eyes, then two ears.
The mind goes back to the nose,
down the mouth to the neck.  
The vehicle can go down further to the stomach,
the belly and the legs and the feet. 
I drive this vehicle through the body
whenever I feel very depressed and full of negative energy.

And I always find this mind-journey
within the body very effective!

Bee Gees - Marley Purt Drive



Sunday morning, woke up yawning; filled the pool for a swim.
Pulled down the head and looked in the glass just to see if I was in.
Went up the stairs and kissed my women to make her come alive.
'Cause with fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
Fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids ,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

That's how they are, so I grabbed out the car;convertible fifty-nine.
Headed for the freeway; tried to find the Pasadena sign.
Ten miles and three quarters more I wasn't feeling any more alive.
'Cause with fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
Fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

I used to be a minstrel free with a whole lot of bread in my bag.
I used to feel that my life was real, but the good Lord threw me a snag.
Now I'm gonna be the same as me ,no matter how I try.
'Cause with fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
Fifteen kids and a fam'ly on the skids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

Turned 'round the car and headed for home; I guess I realized my fate.
Ten miles and three quarters more I pulled up outside the gate.
Twenty more kids were stood inside and that made thirty-five.
'Cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
An orphanage full of thirty-five kids ,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

Sunday morning woke up yawning; filled the pool for a swim.
Pulled down the glass and looked in the mirror just to see if I was in .
Went up the stairs and kissed my women to make her come alive.
'Cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids ,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
And orphanage full of thirty-five kids,
I got to go for a Sunday drive.
