Shoo X 那些靠不住:找顆大樹

找個

像一棵大樹的男友

 

像大樹一樣

魁梧結實

卻從不張揚

 

像大樹一樣

夏天的時候 帶來好多涼快感

 

像大樹一樣

冬天的時候 有種冷冷威嚴

卻帶有安全感

 

像大樹一樣

We could build a tree house

As our secret hide out

 

像大樹一樣

已經扎根在這片土地

無論神麼事

都不離不棄

 

像大樹一樣

我不開心的時候

能對它放聲大喊

 

像大樹一樣

我很不開心的時候

可以摘下一片綠葉擦眼淚

 

像大樹一樣

喜歡倚偎在它懷裡

看最喜歡的《花生漫畫》

 

像大樹一樣

把我告訴它的秘密

當作自己的秘密守好

 

何必這麼麻煩找

既然大樹這麼好

就要它做男友好了

 

也對

人始終靠不住

還不如喜歡一棵大樹

Cool?

Shawnie X Kary: Simply Lovely

When Shawn was directing the MV 《人非草木》

For Kary last Oct

 

I actually discussed with Mag Mag

They should be together

And I even googled for Kary bf

To find out that there is this

"Prince of Tennis" guy

With whom she was spending

A beach vacation with

In Malaysia

 

Okay fine

Shawn has to work harder then

 

And I kept insisting that

If Shawn and Eddie still

Couldn't find respective GFs

Then they should be together

 

Lol Mag did not like the idea

Because unlike me

she is a fan of Ed

But not both Shawnie & Eddie

 

Shawn 余文樂 X Kary 吳雨霏

Until this news came into being

Oh my I did not know

Until the comment fights on Instagram

There are pro Kary and anti Kary

And some are neutral

 

I am in the middle of

Neutral and pro Kary

Because I like her too

 

Her style, her song and her subtle-ness

And I have been following her

Since the era of Cookies, Ping Pung

And Kary X Hardpack

Also, her first movie character in

Love at Fist Note with Justin Lo

 

Loads love and best wishes

No matter how true and how reliable

the news are

 

Media well media

You see

they actually cropped photos

From the past

To make the photos look as if

It's just Shawn and Kary

Shawn 余文樂 X Kary 吳雨霏

 

 

 

Shawn 余文樂 X Kary 吳雨霏

Shawn 余文樂 X Kary 吳雨霏

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the funny thing is

He uploaded a photo of Statute

I think it's London downtown

Near Marble Arch

 

Probably because

there are many comments

Of Him and Kary

Since there is coverage of

People bumping into them at Heathrow

 

And hours later

he deleted the photos away

The comments were way too scary

Elevated into issue about

Identity issue of HK vs mainland etc etc

Oh my

 

But since it auto feed to FB

It's still around on FB

but no longer on Instagram

Good Bye X Do As Told: Learn to Say No!!

taken from Zen Habits

to celebrate my two courageous refusals today

Why We Find It Hard To Say “No”

  • You want to help where possible, even if it may eat into your time.

  • Afraid of being rude, especially to people who are more senior, is rude.

  • Wanting to be agreeable, don’t want to alienate yourself from the group

  • Fear of conflict, might lead to an ugly confrontation.

  • Fear of lost opportunities, is worried saying no means closing doors.

  • Not burning bridges, might lead to bridges being burned and relationships severed.

  • At the end of the day, it’s about how you say “no”,

    rather than the fact you’re saying no,

    that affects the outcome.

     

    7 Simple Ways To Say “No”

    “I can’t commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”

    “Now’s not a good time as I’m in the middle of _. How about we reconnect at X time?”

    “I’d love to do this, but …”
    “Let me think about it first and I’ll get back to you.”

    “This doesn’t meet my needs now but I’ll be sure to keep you in mind.”

    “I’m not the best person to help on this. Why don’t you try X?”

    “No, I can’t.”

    After all, you have your own priorities and needs,

    just like everyone has his/her own needs.

    Saying no is about respecting and valuing

    your time and space.

    Say no is your prerogative.

    Oh Dear X He's Here: #2 of CNYear

    We have this tradition

    On the day two of Lunar New Year

     

    We would go loitering at mall

    Contrasting the busy period

    Before New Year

    Plus the peak during day one

     

    There we were sitting on a bench

    Scooping ice cream and

    Chattering

    At the outdoor yard

     

    Then dad suggested to

    Move over to the other bench

    Because the lights were kinda bright

    Not exactly that "romantic" for us

     

    let's move

    There I was walking across

    And settled myself down

    With our tube of ice cream

     

    Then there he came walking

    Melvin Lim

     

    Proudly announce

    I bumped into Melvin Lim

     

    I did not stalk him

    Walking exceptionally slow

    Outside his work place

     

    He must have come from a

    Puffing session

    It isn't look that great

    To bump into your "teenage dream"

    hugging a tube of ice cream

    With perhaps trace of choc

    Around the lips

     

    6 years..

    He may be married with children already

    Depressssssssing

    Greedy Kid X Mischievous Deed: Stalking Mr. Read

    Stalking is something I do the best

    Let it be digital or physical

     

    Bumped into this guy

    Few weeks back

    He was wearing a check

    In red or green

     

    Can't exactly remember

    Not my first choice of colour

    But he still looked quite good

     

    And he was reading a book

    My, you don't see much guys or girls

    Reading a book while waiting for bus

    He must either be a backpacker

    Or old gentleman

     

    But he is neither.. Nor

    And still reading a book

    A solid book, not ebook on device

     

    I was almost hoping

    He was supposed to board the same bus

    No he did not

    He left for the same destination

    15 minutes earlier

     

    It's okay

    At least I found out

    We may be coming

    from the same place

     

    Friday night

    Expected a fully seated bus

    Given the long weekend

    But the seat beside me was

    Actually empty

     

    And best of all

    There he was

    Sitting right across

     

    Somehow I am pretty sure

    It's the same boy

     

    I actually had some good time

    Observing him

    Neither was he on earphone

    Nor playing games or browsing SNS

     

    He was browsing something full of word

    Email or news feed

    I mean news feed literally NEWS

    Not the one on your Facebook

     

    Caught a good glimpse

    Since I was right behind him in the queue

    While alighting the bus

    What watch he wore

    What kind of clothes material

    Which finger does he wear a ring

     

    I googled for it

    The finger in between thumb and middle

    It means singlehood

     

    Hahaha

    That's the best conclusion of the mission

     

    The only flaw I found

    How come he is using a S phone

    Instead of an I

     

    I named all the boys I stalked after

    something they wear or do

    Let's name him Mr. Read

     

    Somehow stalking gives a

    Sense of satisfaction

    Which I am addicted to

     

    May have looked at your target

    For hours for days and even years

    From head to toe

    and he doesn't even know if

    You exist

     

    That kind of "inequality"

    And imbalance power of knowledge

    Was kinda fun

     

    I even have his photo

    Blekkkkk

    Frenzy Mopper X Trash Reaper: Only On New Year

    Day one of lunar new year

    As usual, took out the first shirt I found

    From the cartoon tee drawer

     

    Because mom was saying

    The tank top I am wearing is kinda

    Inappropriate, given that

    My house will be flooded with folks

    Whatever it is

     

    Not even bothered to

    change into contact lens

    Come on it's a Sunday

     

    Lunar new year is kinda significant to me

    Because it's actually

    The day I mopped the floor the most

    Throughout the year

     

    Five rounds at least

    After every group of folk left

    Because the floor got sticky

    And it's still sticky after the five rounds

     

    And my mom is the last few

    Who insists on serving home beverage

    In glasses, and also home made dessert

    So can imagine the piles to clear

     

    Meet my new found friend

    But can't use it for day one, still

    Respecting the old tradition of

    Keeping the broom away

     

    A cordless vacuum cleaner

    And can be detached to be a

    Really portable hand piece

    For the door railing

    I am not able to clean for ages

     

    Dad woke me up from nap after 8

    I was like startled from a long dream

    "huh time to go work??"

     

    Time to mop the floor another round

    Before I can resume some

    Interacting with my new toy again

    Tomorrow

     

    Don't you think that

    His colour

    is way too "Iron-man"

    Fri 08 X Very Gloomy : Rainflection

    A couple was about to alight

    From the bus

    The guy took out a white shirt

    From his bag

     

    Running in the rain

    He used the shirt to

    Shelter his gf from the rain

     

    That's so sweet, to me

    Even if they have to take bus

    Every single day

     

    Looking at my no longer white canvas

    I finally understand why

    I am always cursing at rain

    And there is no way

    I can link rain with romance

     

    It's alright

    I can hold my own umbrella

    And find my way home in three hours time

    My dirty white canvas after rain(s)

    我知道 X 都知道:那些生存之道

    我知道一天用五個小時上下班是

    一件很荒謬的事情

    但你也不用四處告訴他人,

    再用"癡線"來形容我,

    而且是當著我的面

     

    并且在這裡補充一下

    我不是你口裡覺得說得好滑稽的

    她六點鐘起床,

     

    不不不

    這樣我會遲到的

    是五點起身,六點出門,懂了吧

     

    我知道你們農曆新年,

    不需要這麼早回公司開工,好不快活,

    但你也不用說:

    如果我在家沒事幹,我會回來陪你的

     

    我知道你從來沒有乘搭過公交,

    更不用說是長途公車,

    你也不用無知到拿著我的車票看著說:

    how does it actually work

     

    No worries if I know there are people who

    do not even know how to

    buy a bus ticket and later board the right bus,

     

    I would volunteer myself to

    create such a page on How Stuff Works

     

    我知道你不太喜歡自己的上司

    但可以教教我你是怎麼做到

    和她很老友很machi的模樣

     

    我知道你們今天很空閒 空得喊悶

    但也不須要這麼張揚

    我真的很不想注意力被打斷

     

    我的工作一直做不完

    是我工作效率低

    是我長得惹人欺負的樣子

    是我不懂得討好上司

    是我死倔強甚麼都自認能勝任

     

    是我賤愛幫別人去做他們的工作

    冒雨去送貨,整理倉庫,

    還有那些翻譯工作

    根本就是中文部的工作嘛

    連那個也要我去插一手

    不怪得可以喊太得空

     

    所以最後別人在喊悶

    別人農曆新年放假去的時候

    就是我自作自受的時候

     

    祝假期快樂

    就算在家沒東西幹

    也千萬別回來探望我

     

    我真的真的

    沒有這麼多時間

    取悅大眾

     

    我知道我知道

    我什麼都知道

    雖然我沒有說

     

    我干嘛還這么火呢?

    因為我真的以為

    自己在那個大環境里

    很幸運找到一個

     

    可以稱為朋友的同事

    可以共患難可以訴苦

    可以分享些些自己的事

     

    被上司“善用”

    本來是很正常的事

    沒有什么好生氣

    長命功夫 長命做

     

    但被朋友出賣那種感覺

    就根本是兩回事

    是我自己判斷能力有問題

     

    我終于才知道

    #1 - 別把同事當朋友

    是不變的golden rule

     

    加油吧 孩子

    路還很長遠

    比五小時更荒謬的事

    還多著呢

    Chambray Fever X Hyper Tribal: The Hunt’s Over

    last week’s marketing survey

    yes i did post something like this last week

    thanks Boss for the UT X Peanuts/Snoopy tee

    Snoopy UT

     

    but this wasn’t in conjunction with

    Lunar New Year

    these are the items on my hunting list for ages

     

    tribal print dress

    and it avoids the danger of

    looking too “pajama”-like

    with the combination of the tight-black

    tribal print dress

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    and best of all

    i found at least 4 ways of converting the dress

    into a tuck-in top or cropped tribal

    tuck intuck outloose fit cropped top

     

    luck could be something so

    tracking another chambray dress for months

    and when i finally decided to buy

    it was long gone

     

    and this one 

    while passing by

    i was randomly telling Cheryl

    the day before i was here,

    waiting for Manager’s mummy to try out

    those Hush Puppies’ polo tees

     

    and there it is

    chambray dress, last piece, 70% off

    how come I did not see it

    the day before

    while that’s the thing with hanging out with Manager

    keep the eyes straight, not eyeing for anything at all

    chambray dress

     

    so  here you go

    loots of the day

     

    failed to convince Cheryl to

    buy the identical tribal

    she was stuck with the polka dots still

    IMG_1799

     

    speaking of that, polka dots

    previous trip, two weeks ago

    More KIV X Insider's Tip: First of 2013

     

    i mentioned how the sale lady was so gracious

    of reserving an item for her

    so that she can buy it

    when the sale period started

     

    and she even promise that

    they would order new stock

    so that Cheryl could have more choices

    instead of taking the last piece

    which isn’t the usual size for her

     

    and finally she was saying that

    even if no new stock was coming in

    this final piece would be reserved just for us

     

    however when we returned to the store

    she was like

    “Oh, i did not reserve the dress for you”

    “Which one is that again?”

    “I lost the paper which i jotted down”

    “The manager did not bring the dress down”

     

    blah blah blah

    evil Cheryl confronted her

    that she was hiding in the store to avoid us

     

    such disappointment

    previous trip she was the best sale person

    and now totally flopped

     

    thank goodness

    i did not put any expectation on

    the blue dress that did not zip

    although she promised to order new one too

    because i thought the pink block was

    kinda “out the blue”

    and

    in another sense,

    any colour out-of-the-blue-range

    should always be given a second thought

    open back dresscolour-block dress

     

    found him!!

    while i finally got to unpack my loots just now

    IMG_1867

     

    however

    why are they calling this GENERAL BLUE

    oh goodness

    this is the world famous (I am just saying) chambray

    or you can call it chambray blue if you like

    GENERAL BLUE??
