In terms of evading from busy life, again going to California has been a very very good destination. It offers the sunlight that you never get enough in HK, and the cool weather for you to read a book under the sunlight in a huge flat lawn.
Have backed from California, and while the holiday mood is not going to diminish in a few days, I decided to strengthen it up again by writing some records of the 14 days journeys. Probably this will help me to extend the journey ....
In the past few months I have to admit it is the busiest time of my life. Home renovation, 'The Place' together with my work shifts has made my seconds so fully packed. And I think it's time for me to take a break now by focusing on my personal side.
I flied to USA giving a surprising appearance to her - I wrote a letter to my girlfriend, and I asked one student in UC Berkeley to do me a favor by presenting the letter to her, after which the student told her to go to the lawn in front of the library, where I'll be waiting for her.
i know life has to be full of surprises so as to make it happier. And when she presented in front of me, I know i made my day.
It’s been 4 years since last World Cup, It’s been too long for Africa.
To many of us Africa seems to be a continent of in all-time-need of support. Poverty, wars, diseases, dictatorship, corruption, instability are the symbols of second largest continent in the Earth. Years and years foods and money have been pumping into the continent, and yet they all appear on the hands of dictators and their relatives, the guerilla campaigns or soldiers of each countries. Resources are misplaced and the result is people never get their wish to fight for better future (13-15% of GDP of Africa is from financial aid) – Countries in Africa certainly do not mind being aided by posting themselves helpless, hopeless or despairing, plus suppressing the economic growth.
Africa does have fundamental problem, but the continual aid from worldwide nations certainly does not help the growth of Africa as ‘a continent in need of help’ to ‘a continent with wealth’. Giving medicine to the ill, supplying food to the hungry treats the symptoms, but they all cannot help Africa to grow independently, to be equipped with self sustainability.
That’s why Africa needs a World Cup, which they utilize it as the opportunity to create jobs, infrastructure, and most importantly, money. For long time the revenue of African nations is too much rely on international donors, 2010 is a year for them to change
Please do take 20 mins to watch the speech from Sir Ken Robinson.
What went straight into my heart is when Sir Ken Robinson raised the example of fireman as to cite the importance of developing our own talent.
We need to dream, think and develop; We need not to follow the old rules of lives, we need to create our own way of life, and embrace it with your own natural resources - talent.
