Yes, I do plan to continue blogging at this space. Afterall I pay for this webspace!! Currently I plan to blog about informative stuff here, and fun stuff in my 360 blog. But it will be changing from time to time. Well, I guess I am in the 'thoughts sharing' mood these days, and one blog is not reflect my mind quite enough!
During weekend I went to the local bookstore and bought two books: a novel after dark by Japanese author Murakumi Haruki. Random stories about encounters happened in Tokyo(?) from the time 11:56am to 6am next morning. So random, but thru Haruki's words anything can be transformed to something unique.
Another book is the prequel to Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. I was a bit hesitant before buying this book because I don't quite enjoy reading THICK English books at all. But everyone who finished it says it's worth reading and it is a better book than Da Vinci Code. Yes, I love Da Vinci Code the book for it's brilliant code sequences and fictional story nature. I do look forward to reading this book with rave reviews from my friends.
I am those people who will voice out my opinion when I see things not right, or not fair. Recently, there are things and people at work, at church, or even in ball games which I think are in unfair situations.
It really bothers me when someone bully their way because simply no one say anything. Or worse, even when people protest, the situation doesn't get any better because of some hidden agendas. It pains me to see unfair situations. Maybe it's because I have spent many years in USA, I tend to speak out when people bully their ways.
People deserve to have a second opinion and other alternatives.
One of the best things about World Cup 2006 for me is that I can watch the games with others. So, I do have i-cable at my flat and I get all 64 games of world cup. Some air at 9pm, some at mid-night, some at 3am. But when weekend comes, it's great to be able to join others to watch at homes, at restaurants, at malls etc. Just to feel that world cup crowd effect!
Most exciting game: Germany 4:2 Costa Rica. I watched the entire opening match and it was such a great game with many goals back and forth.
Most surprising game: Japan 1:3 Australia. You thought Japan's lucky goal would seal their victory. But 3 goals by the Australians during the final minutes changed all that.
Most overrated team: England. They won 1:0 against Paraguay. But the goal was an error made by the opposing team. And England couldn't make a goal with their own efforts.
Most disappointing lost: USA 0:3 Czech. No love with the Americans losing. Such a big nation with talented atheletes and couldn't even make a dent to the Czech's defense!? Sucks!
While I was unpacking my baggages today at my new flat, I realized I do have lots of things I need to unpack and tidy up. However, this amount is only a very small portion of what I have left in California. Books, CDs, clothes...most of them are sitting at my parent's place in Sunnyvale, untouched. Here, I buy new books and CDs and clothes and I live fine without my stuff in USA.
So, possessions are not very important in life, at least to me. This is more true when I get older. When I was younger, stuff are important to me because it gives me a kind of identity. But when I get older I don't need things to boast my own worth. Rather, the things you have done, the friends you make, the people you helped - just to name a few, shape who you are. The more important things are, of course, family, friendships and relationship - those which deal with people are important in my life. The old and new friends I have met in HK, I enjoy every moment with them having fun and chatting. It has been great. Without coming back, I will not be able to meet and talk to them.
I have been reading a lot of blogs from a lot of people. I realized that many people are quite intellectual. They like to write about a certain topic and analyze it scrutinize it looking at it from different angle. I envy these people's ways of thinking in a deeper way.
My readers usually do not find my blog to be deep in nature.
Instead, I try to put random thoughts and things I see daily and post it here for sharing. Sometimes, even myself question about the stuff I talk about: are they shallow? do they make sense? will the materials on my blog offend anyone? Then, I realize this is exactly the beauty of blogs - everyone write about different things from different angles with different cultures and different levels of complexities. That's how we can share thoughts and enrich/educate one another.
