縫寶寶

如果衣服只是有一些小破損, 我現在都會拿去給姨姨修補. 她的巧手讓衣服壽命變長 🙂 畢竟我也是喜歡那件衣服才買的, 若非面料洗舊了, 不想隨便就丟了.

我們身處的地方, 除了商場, 還是商場, 買東西, 是超方便. 但正正因為太方便, say no 更顯得珍貴. 去旅遊時, 發現其他地方的垃圾分類比香港做得好.

選擇

我們由出生起, 面對大大小小的選擇, 亦作出無數的決定 (並不是說每天 lunch 決定吃什麼這些雞毛蒜皮的事情).

年少時, 因為閱歷不夠, 也會問問長輩的意見; 同時也有些情況是, 一些跟你無關痛癢的人, 會給予很多意見, 雖然會給你帶來一些困擾, 但還是跟隨心裡的意願. 由自己決定怎走每一步最大的好處, 你會懂得擔當二字. 走哪一步, 不是說要去計算, 因為根本算不來, 只是你知道, 自己承擔風險的能力. 有一些評估, 多少是直覺, 直覺背後是由洞察力所支撐.

我手上沒有水晶球, 但大原則還是堅持著: be kind, be considerate, don’t look back

喜歡看書, 也喜歡去旅行, 因為不懂的有很多, 多看多學, 感受不同的文化, 才能讓自己多明白一點.

Loyal Customer

Indeed, it’s difficult for me to become a loyal customer. I don’t know how to describe verbally how I love trying new stuff.

But the story changed since last year. Finally, I found brands below I can rely on,

Shampoo – Avalon Organics
Skin Care, Make up – Bottega Verde
Fragrances – Jo Malone

It’s quite nice to make purchase at the shops you are familiar with. Saving time and money, and the brand providing full range of products you need. So you don’t have to shop around.

The aromatherapy course will start 2 weeks later (I am so excited!) And there will be a lot of assignments, exams are waiting for me. My motto about stay young – keep learning.

Yoga Mat – Manduka and Liforme

I am a fortunate one I don’t have to bring yoga mat to studio. (Thanks to the successful business model made in Hong Kong.)

The first yoga mat I bought was Manduka. It’s because I needed home practice when I took training (2 years ago). The longer you practice, the better understanding of your body condition. My right knee is not that good, so I chose Manduka because of the thickness.

I sweat a lot even I am not doing hot class. So I bought Liforme a month ago. I saw many posts saying that kind of you choose one of them. It’s SO AMAZING when I use both of them for practice. I got the protection for my knee, headstand, at the same time I can have secure grip for arm balancing poses (I am weak in those).

To me, yoga mat (and other thing which can make my practice/ workout better) is a gift to myself. So I clean the yoga mat with care every time 🙂 I know I am changing. In the past, I spent the money on clothing, fast fashion and fad items. After practice, I found I can’t live without coffee and yoga.

What I am trying to say you have to find something you love doing in life, treat yourself so well. So that you can share your energy with others.

運動的好處

除了大家最常聯想到的 stay fit, stay healthy, 對於心理素質也是一個有效的訓練.

stay fit, 才能把 normcore 的服飾穿得好看, 因為我是提倡建立 capsule wardrobe 的人, 很多東西也是一環扣一環, 這是 lifestyle, 也是你個人的品牌.

stay healthy, 這是享受自由的大前提, 沒有了健康, 啥都別想做, 因為有心無力.

為什麼我會說運動是心理素質的訓練, 以我來說, 我好些時候會有懶床的習慣, 但早起 yoga practice/ workout 時, 我是聽到鬧鐘響, 便立即起床. 運動可以治好拖延症. 還有, 我跑步時, 總會設定一個距離, 比方說 5k, 6k (看當天身體狀況), 基本上, 跑到一大半的時候, 就會不想跑, haha, 但聽到 workout remix 的音樂, 還是乖乖地繼續跑. 因為完成目標後, 你會打從心底裡笑出來.

yoga practice 也不是每一個 asana 你也能做到 full pose, 尤其是在 hot room 裡頭, 但 focus 令你忘記身處的環境, 練習時間也很快過去.

這說明運動會讓你變得有決心, so far, 我還未找到其他東西會為我帶來這樣的轉變.

我們的生活, 也不是每一刻都是順境, 碰到問題正常不過, 但我們要有籌碼讓事情變好.

每一個人都希望愈來愈好, 先從自身變好,其他東西都會改善過來. 因為是我們選擇怎去看待, react 事情.

Million Pound Menu

It’s a program I watch for kill time. Although all are F & B business, it’s nice to see how the investors think, and the owners figure out their USP.

Most of the investors are not looking for perfection, but the potential and reaction. Some of them are fine with try and error, some of them will reject to offer anything if they found the first impression not right.

But one thing I agree is the partnership like marriage. We all have choices, and allow us to keep the personality and vision of the business.

Happy Monday, and I am looking forward to my holiday. I need some time and room to find out something.

風水

我相信風水. 這是一種文化, 統計學, 但若太過迷信 (以影響到日常生活作界線), 我就覺得不必了.

同時, 我是一個相信因果, 吸引力法則的人. 風水, 會因人的選擇而所改變, 所有宗教也是導人向善. 「人為善, 福雖未至, 禍已遠離; 人為惡, 禍雖未至, 福已遠離. 」所以做好自身, 其他事聽聽作參考, 做好準備就好了.

有多餘的時間, 精力, 做運動也好, 義工也行. 想太多, 會生病噢 (思傷脾, 這是中醫所說的, 一種病對應一種情緒).

Don’t choose a job with Monday Blue

Mon Blue.jpg

I tried to find the answer or inspiration form books when I get confused.

Two books about career are still on my bookshelf
The Rules of Work
下個十年,你在哪?

After changing fields and jobs, I have few things to estimate if I should stay,

  • The remaining energy level when you are off duty
    It’s the most direct indication.  If you are not in the right circle, the energy will run out quickly. I am not saying the workplace is a playground, but at least it can’t be too negative all the time.
  • Do you have Monday Blue?
    Some people prefer work alone, some prefer teamwork. We face different problems and ad hoc tasks with tight deadline. Working with a team who is willing to support each other will make your life much easier.
  • Can you maintain work-life-balance?
    It’s like long distance running, make a good balance between the work and our life, so that you can run far.

long d

long d

我跟他首三年是 long d, 他在英國唸書, 我在香港.

我們的開始, 也是隔著螢幕的, 雖然周邊的朋友早就認為我們是一對. 沒有太多顧慮, 接著他也回來香港. 一晃眼七, 八年, 他的職業, 會使我們開展第二次 long d. 中間, 聽過很多不同的聲音, 但我只聽自己的聲音, haha.

捨不得是肯定, 但沒有反對, 阻止的想法; 因為這個人, 陪我走過很多路, 有平坦的, 也有不好走的, 不好走的時候, 他也是握著我的手慢慢走, 但每一次他都是支持我的, 所以這趟我只是回禮而已. long d 的好處, 你可以把大部分時間用在你感興趣的地方; 而它的壞處是, 有時候, 你會很想念這個人, 但慶幸的是, 現在可以 email, what’s app 溝通, 而且還有 video call.

Do not regret what you have done.
Regret the things you did not do when you had the chance.
因為很愛一個人, 才不願見到他有機會嚐到遺憾的感覺.
