Another flashback from Facebook.  Last year today I moved into my new home in Taiwan. 今天臉書上彈出回顧去年的提示,原來我是去年今日搬進新居的。 I was telling a Taiwanese friend a while ago about my journey from UK to Taiwan to start a new chapter in my life, and that I arrived on the day of my birthday last year.  He made a...

小藍花兒 Bluebells 

在英國時我最喜愛四月份。黃色水仙花燦爛地盛開,初生小綿羊在田裡依偎著羊媽媽,商店內色彩繽紛的巧克力復活蛋,都在告訴我們春天巳來臨。April is my favourite month of the year in UK. Daffodils bloom everywhere, ewes tender her new born lambs in the field, and the colouful easter eggs in the shops, all shouting out spring is here. 每年四月份我最期待去行山找 bluebell。這些籃色的小花密密地長滿在樹林裡,仿佛是大自然的籃色地毯,等待行山人仕去發現它。April is when I normally go on my bluebell walk, a walk that I look forward to every...

禮貌 Manners 

Whilst on holiday in Japan this week the news about UA dragging a passenger off a plane went viral around the world.  I flew with a budget airline but wasn't worried about this happening on my flight. After all, I'm sure no one in their right mind would do  anything so insane again.  More importantly,... Continue Reading →

Surprise 驚喜

驚喜就是在沖繩旅遊時,在完全不懂日文情況下走進一間又沒英文又沒相片餐牌的居酒屋。 Surprise is walking into a Japanese restaurant whilst on holiday in Okinawa, ordering off a menu with no photos and no English when you know very limited Japanese. 驚喜就是選的每碟食物完來極美味,感覺上旅遊就應該是這樣的。 Surprise is when everything you ordered is not what you had expected and tastes so delicious that you feel this is the way holidays should...

Waiting 等

瑜伽課開始前,跟四位同學一起在教室裏等著。等的時候我習慣先做些拉筋的熱身動作。我望望其他四位同學,你猜她們正在做甚麽?Was in the classroom with four other girls waiting for my yoga class to start. I did my usual stretching excercise whilst waiting, and glanced around the room. Guess what the other four girls were doing ? 就連老師步入課室那一刻也禁不著說:“課室裡有五位學生,四位都在玩手機!”Even the yoga teacher couldn’t resist commenting when she walked into the classroom, "Five people in the room...

前兩個月在臺北書展裡,見到一本每日一問的五年經典日記,覺得很棒。 The other month at Taipei Book Fair I saw this Q&A a Day 5 year Journal which I thought was really awesome. 這本日記會每日問你一條問題,就像是當日一個提示或焦點。簡單的答案,正好反映當日覺得有意思的人和事或心情。它的另外一個獨特之處,是每一日的問題會有五次回答的機會,今天及未來四年的同一天。這樣可以看到隨著時間,我們對同樣事物的看法有沒有改變,或是會怎樣變。 This journal is interesting because it asks you a different question everyday, like a prompt so you can focus on a particular event, person or thought for the day that has...

First Time第一次

For someone who doesn’t do a lot of exercise, I consider walking nearly 50km over a weekend a big achievement! And to do so along a stunning route on a brilliant summer day in UK makes it even more unforgettable. 對一個沒做運動的人來說,在一個週末裡行了差不多50公里路,我覺得自己實在很了不起!尤其在英國燦爛的夏天,沿路還有如詩如畫的美境,特別令人難忘。


Taiwan has a wide range of fresh veg and fruit, including this fella here.  I wonder what's for dinner tonight?     via Daily Prompt: Purple -

嘗試 Try

在臺中每次經過建築工地,圍板外總是種滿一盆盆翠綠植物。雖然他們應該不能消除裡面所製造的汙水泥麈,但最重要是他們有嘗試過。 Whenever I walk past a building site in Taichung the exterior perimeter is always planted with real plants. Although they can't eliminate all the pollution and mess created inside, but the most important thing is they tried. It IS Easy Being Green!
