If you know how to read Chinese, check out the lyrics of this hit song from Hong Kong by 陳奕迅 (Eason Chan) called 陀飛輪. This song is a very good reminder to me that “time flies.” How am I spending my time? Am I using my time wisely on people or things that are meaningful to me in my life? What are my pursuits in life? I hope we all learn the lesson from this song. Remember to treasure the time that you have in your life and use your time wisely on people or things that are meaningful to you. Don’t regret when you look back of your life and realize that you wasted your life/time on meaningless things.

過去十八歲 沒戴錶 不過有時間
夠我 沒有後顧 野性貪玩

霎眼廿七歲 時日無多 方不敢偷惰
宏願縱未了 奮鬥總不太晚

然後突然今秋
望望身邊 應該有 已盡有
我的美酒 跑車 相機 金錶 也 講究
直到世間 個個也妒忌 仍不怎麼富有
用我尚有 換我沒有 其實已 用盡所擁有

曾付出 幾多心跳
來換取 一堆堆 的發票
人值得 命中減少幾秒 多買一隻錶
秒速 捉得緊了
而皮膚竟偷偷鬆了
為何用到盡了 至知哪樣緊要

勞力是 無止境
活著多好 不需要 靠物證
也不以高薪 高職 高級品 搏尊敬 wo~
就算搏到伯爵那地位 和蕭邦的雋永
賣了任性 日拼夜拼 忘掉了為甚麼高興

曾付出 幾多心跳
來換取 一堆堆 的發票
人值得 命中減少幾秒 多買一隻錶
秒速 捉得緊了
而皮膚竟偷偷鬆了
為何用到盡了 至知哪樣緊要

記住那 關於光陰的教訓
回頭走 天已暗
你獻出了十吋 時和分
可有換到十吋金

還剩低 幾多心跳
人面跟水晶錶面對照
連自己 亦都分析不了 得到多與少
也許 真的瘋了
那個倒影 多麼可笑
靈魂若變賣了 上鏈也沒心跳

銀或金 都不緊要
誰造機芯一樣了
計劃了 照做了 得到了 時間卻太少 no~

還剩低 幾多心跳
還在數 趕不及了
昂貴是這刻 我覺悟了
在時計裏 看破一生 渺渺

Simple Life, Simple Joy – my ideal living April 7, 2010

Filed under: Thoughts — vivaliving @ 6:19 am

Recently, I am doing a big cleaning house project besides my busy work life and my Scandinavia trip planning. I realize how much junk that I have accumulated over the years. I come to a realization that I want to have a simple life from now on. A simple life will bring me simple joy. That’s what I want for my life at this life stage.
Simplify life, work & life balance, spend less money & accumulate less stuff, then less clean up required, more quality time to spend with yourself, your family, and your friends, become financial independent sooner, have some savings to travel and see the world, do things that I enjoy when I retire – this is the most happiest and the most ideal life that I am dreaming of. What’s the most happiest and the most ideal life that you are dreaming of?

 

Keep writing January 25, 2010

My original plan was to write and to post one article a day. After the first week in January, I don’t think writing and posting daily work for me. Coz I am too lazy and too busy. My plan right now is to write and to post at least one article per week.

Something is bothering me today, but I don’t know what it is. I just feel like writing today. For the past few weeks in 2010, I have already had so many life experiences that I want to write and to share with you. I just wouldn’t find time to do it. Since I feel like writing today, I tell myself why don’t I just go ahead to write as many articles as I want to. I finally finished three articles today.

Your comment is important to me. Drop me a line if you can. That motivates me to gather more of my life experiences to share with you.
