《曼谷按摩》__ 陳柏齡 (71)

《曼谷按摩》

《一》

曼谷自由行,感受到的是泰國人好客之情。無論是入住酒店,享受美食,參觀廟宇,合掌道謝無處不在,讓遊客有溫馨的感覺。

旅遊城市大多溫情好客,居民好像知道,同城找生活,遊客是他們的經濟命脈。拉斯維加斯是一例子,曼谷更上一層樓。

合掌道謝是泰國的特色。遊客受到這特殊的尊敬,會倍感温暖。合掌道謝最多的地方,是按摩院。

《Sky Lantern __ Entrance of Simonne Aletheia》__ Rose Ho

Today, let’s go fly Sky Lanterns … in Taiwan.

That process was thrilling and exciting.  So was the drama of yesterday.

My daughter gave birth to her second child yesterday morning….in the foyer of the hospital right by the lift before we could go to the delivery floor.   “Call Code Blue!”  “Call Code Pink!”  “Baby’s head is coming out.” “Can someone get the body out too?”  “Stay clear please”  “Stay clear”  “Blanket please”   “Blanket”…..  …….. ……. A big commotion at the hospital lobby. Continue reading

《Edutain and train》__ Rose Ho

“Your mother is hilarious”, my daughter’s colleague told her over the phone about me.

Yes indeed, I had to be funny especially when travelling around with a person of a different generation, race, culture, upbringing and with a different value system and life experience.

For the past two weeks, I had to entertain, educate and train a person twenty-seven years of my junior on a tour of HK, Taiwan and Shenzhen.

…and….I wrapped the trip up successfully at the end of the 13th day.

“Mrs. Ho, Please bring me to Japan next time.  I will go travelling with you.”  !!

Wong Tai Sin Temple and vicinity

Candidly, I’ve never been to Wong Tai Sin Temple all my life.  But I went…yesterday….for the first time…and to its vicinity too.

Please enjoy the crowds there in the temple on the third day of the lunar year…and the less known Fung Tak Park and the more renowned Nan Lian Garden.

The Art of Peace of Mind__ Kong Shiu Loon

I used to travel extensively in Japan, to discover and to cleanse my soul, two decades ago when my son was there. The photos received bring back many fond and soothing memories. I wish to share them with all Wayanites, together with my thoughts and feelings.

What you see, slowly and deeply, is the art of achieving a peace of mind by finding the past from the present, and by appreciating the beauties and rhythms of nature as they present themselves. You should keep in mind that you are a part of nature, not outside it, nor trying to use it, and never to control or change it.

Just go through the photos with a minimum regard for the comments. Discover how serene everything is, be it a street, a building, food in a dish, berries and pine cone on snow, the characters in the signboards, the blue sky and green hills, the cherry blossoms, the furniture and the rooms, the food containers, the mood, the absolute cleanliness…..

Borobudur (婆羅浮屠)

Borobudur and Prambanan
by SL Kong

 For years I had been yearning to visit Borobudur, one of the remaining world wonders. I was there finally, with a wonderful surprise. There were also the spectacular Hindu temples of Prambanan. Together, they represent the legacy of the Hindu and Buddhist religions of ancientIndia, a colonial power in Indonesia at the end of the first millennium.

We arrived at Prambanan early in the morning. The sight of the temples was mesmerizing, even viewed from a distance. No word could be found to describe our joy and surprise in seeing them.
