保留

这几天一直在家,在家。大门也真的没出过几次。

每天,起得早的话,陪妈妈煮午餐;起得迟的话,陪爸爸吃午餐。然后电脑、功课、AIESEC、聊天、无聊、在家里走来走去。傍晚,帮妈妈煮饭,或跟爸爸出去打包。饭后,电脑、功课、AIESEC、聊天、无聊。

有时会在想,生命是不是就这样一直走下去?每天都好像有新东西,每天有好像都是一层不变。新的,也是旧的。

又或者走着走着,自己慢慢慢慢地离开了原始的自我。现在的自己,讲求效率,讲究感情,分秒必争,在不同不同的人和事中周旋处理,很久,很久没有停下来,听听心跳,听听自己的情绪和思绪。有时生命或许有一些撞击,心中或许有一些涟漪,当时或许很震撼,或许有天长地久的感觉。但时间一过,一切又好像没发生过。自己又继续地在生命中人和事中周旋处理,分秒必争,讲究感情,讲求效率。

也许自己把脚步放得太快了。自己也许喜欢的不是这样的步伐。我需要快,但我也需要慢的搭配。慢,是要随心所欲得慢,要静的完整,连心跳,都慢下来,随着大自然的韵律,一波一波地,跳着,跳着。而不是在百忙之中给自己抽出一两个小时的时间,或是一两天的时间,然后一直告诉自己放松放松,一面又告诉自己还剩下多少时间来轻松。

生命需要一些保留,就好像国家需要森林保留区一样。让自己不管在生活中弄脏了多少,静下来的时候,还是有一片净土,可以栖息。

PS:就连自己在写着这篇文章的时候,都有电话打来谈公事。有点可悲。

Executive Board Runaway!


Today I am in a better mood to properly blog my holiday at Cameron Highlands. The EB (or in other clubs known as management comm) decided to leave the concrete forest and entered the real deep mysterious forest for a retreat, to give ourselves a rest after working so hard for AIESEC. So we ran away from all the work, issued our notice of absence, and voom! We are at Cameron Highlands even before recess week starts.

I always have this liking for Cameron: its weather, its living pace, its culture, its landscape. And after almost one and a half year, I am finally there again! Memories flooded back.... This time, the company feels really great (Just like last time). Everyone let down their hair, and we had to abide by the law of 'No FAT (F***ing AIESEC Talk)', cuz it is just so natural that we will discuss or talk something about it. So yep, this time, no FAT, only friendship. We have been working so hard that this aspect is kind of underdeveloped. Time to improve neh...

And so this trip was on. We checked into a simple but clean and decent apartment, paid RM20 and we were on our way visiting all sorts of farms: rose centre, self-plucking strawberry park, honeybee park and butterfly park. The trip was a little rush, as the tourguide is really interested in letting us move on to the next park than letting us have the luxury to take A LOT OF self-entertaining pictures. But we still managed to squeeze in a lot of fun in each park.

At night, after all the crazy fun we had with mafia and cards, I had my little quiet and peaceful time with music, then with moonlight and cool breeze and warm rose tea and friend and heart-to-heart talk. But perhaps it was because of this... that something happened the next day. KIV

The next day, I contacted Nash who was my tourguide the last time I was in Cameron, and we attempted Gunung Brinchang! The highest mountain in Cameron, standing tall at 6666 feet. I was initially a little apprehensive about suggesting trekking, as I wasn't sure how receptive others will be to this idea. But luckily everyone turned out loving it! *phew* The trip was tough, but super fun walking through the branches and the roots and stepping on bouncy leafy forest floor. Got to know the forest a little better again!
When we were back down from Gunung Brinchang, Nash decided that we should have the easier path of walking down the tar road and have a view of the tea plantation. The route turned out to be painfully long, and the hot sun wasn't helping at all! I was attacked by acute sore throat, and couldn't speak throughout the journey. Means no self-entertaining. Means more painful. Luckily the guys eventually decided to sacrifice themselves and sing aloud crazily.

My sorethroat then worsened itself into a full-blown fever, with flu and sore muscles and cough. I couldn't join them to go temple and had steamboat dinner. Something that I really sad about. But there was nothing I could do but sleep. Then I recovered slightly at 11pm and started joining them back for card games. Everyone was really caring to me... They tested my temperature, bought dinner for me, comforted me, bought panadol and pipagao for me cuz I couldn't walk, and actually held me when I walked! *touched* I got to see the nice nice side of everyone through this incident. *touched again* Nothing to say but touched.

I think the card game went all the way till morning but I went to sleep at around 4 as I was too tired, and forced myself to sleep. Scared that my fever will return, and it is a big no-no cuz I have to return home tomorrow on my own! Yep so in the morning, I left the cosy apartment, and walked back to Shell station alone... Feeling that tinge of sadness that I have left all of them. Really sad.. The trip is fun but too short. And I wonder when we can have it again. There were some people I didn't know well, but it didn't matter cuz the trip bought everyone closer. And I got to see everyone not from the working point of view. We got to know each other better (for the better or worse haha), even though there was no spotlight session. Hmm.. I don't know what else to say.. but yeah.. hope for another trip again. :)


Us on the way to Cameron!


Our cosy apartment where this cosy famiy spent time for 2 days.

The exterior may look a little not appetizing.. But the price is good!

And the surrounding is pretty!

At rose centre. With lots of roses. Since I have posted some rose pictures in my last entry for Cameron, I shall post something different.


The Snow White and the 7 dwarfs. The President and his 7 accompanying EBs.


The scenery.

Must must remember to pose one.

Girls too must pose!

Let's fly there together!

Me and my managers for Incoming Exchange Department.

At Butterfly Park. With lots of beautiful flowers.

At honeybee farm. Garden of sunflowers.

At self-plucking strawberry park. I am very satisfied with this picture. In fact, it is my desktop picture now. Very refreshing neh..

Agree that this is a very nice picture!


Couldn't stop plucking the strawberries. Sadly they were all wasted due to our brutal treatment. So xin tong!


The very pretty love birds and Sylvester at the back. The white blue bird was actually pursuing one of the green yellow bird while being in a relationshpi with another green yellow bird. Very drama. Enjoyed watching it but didn't have more time!


I went for my first ever massage! Painful, and I was tensed during the massage. But shiok!


Nash our nature guide explaining the wonders of nature, how to stay alive in forest etc.


In the midst of deep forest. In sync with nature and animals and plants.

This is where help and trust is fostered.


The trek got steeper..


and challenging! But we're lovin' it!


Finally we reached the peak! But then to get the best view, we had to climb up this watch tower.


The scenery is the reward. The exercise we gained and the trust we built too!

Reach out!

Panaromic view of tea plantation. Endless. How nice will it be if I can spend the entire day here on my own under a nice tree.


Introducing Nash our nature guide!

This is the person whom I stole the cap from. He is Allison, an exchange student from McMaster University in Canada. AIESECer too!

Believe me for my dreams!


The very tired us after 5 hours of climbing up and down. After this it was 2 more hours.


See how tall wild banana trees can grow. Makes me wonder how high a human can reach if he is uninhibited.

And everyone just loves to pose for pictures throughout the journey. Introducing the very important stick which helped Dominic to trek through the forest. This is called Dominic, an exchange student from Hong Kong University. In fact, the AIESEC president there.


I am amazed by how deep a forest landscape can be. It's composed of different different layers!

Us under a very pretty tree in a very pretty place.


It's called the AIESEC! If you can read the shadow.

回来


又再旧地重游。我不能控制地又再缅怀过去。去的地方,很多都是我们以前走过的路。差点就要住回以前住过的地方,还好我们换了个地方。这样其实很无义,因为你已走远了,我也是。但是,我拥有的是回忆。而回味过去,是不管谁对谁,都会做的吧。所以,我给了自己怀念的权利。仿佛所有的记忆都被取代了。这次我们也去爬山,虽然爬的是另一座山;我和朋友也喝着东西谈了一晚的天,虽然这次喝的是玫瑰花茶;我们也去了同样的玫瑰山庄,也走了街,也玩得很风很快乐。记忆要取代的话,就取代吧。

可是这一次,我在旅途中发烧了。烧得很惨,结果没有去吃火锅。所以这部分的记忆,保留下来了。

I don't know what does this mean, but it's kinda pointless here. I should say I have enjoyed the trip, which I have. I just need to continue to smile. Despite the stupid thing I am facing now, I should continue to smile. And stay hopeful. The sunshine will come one day.

我要从这一桩记忆离开了。祝我幸福。

I am in a crappy crappy mood now. Let me give myself some space to blabber. Just feeling very sian sian sian.

只不过想好好爱一个人
可惜他无法给你满分

不知道为什么,也许是我太期待新年了,也许是之前太忙了都没有好好购年货,也许是心境老了,今年的新年,不管怎么搞气氛,都很难感受到新年的欣喜。吃着火锅,开心;拿红包,开心;看烟火,开心。只是也不知道为什么,就没有很兴奋的感觉。也许要等到明天去和6S班的朋友拜年后,春风才会慢慢吻上我的脸吧。


期待。

游子归家


拉庆车站的等待。有一个很好的阿姨很关心我,还把自己的为让给我坐。天下父母心。感动。


但也是因为我拿的包包太大了吧。


除夕凌晨的香。弥漫着每个家人诚心的祈愿。


美丽的祭品。

生生不息的火,拜祭公公婆婆。

睡午觉的弟弟。觉得可以做Levi's的广告吗?

除夕的午餐。字可是我和大姐写的!朝棒的体验!


每年的除夕团圆火锅里必备的节目- 敬家人。

最喜欢但最危险的环节!嘘...

鞭炮后的踏红。

住小镇的好处。不停的烟火。可是今年好像比较少了。。。


祝大家有个灿烂的2008!心想事成!!
