Better Two-gether

So we made decision

in the course of ongoing
we can only wait and see
as of this moment

2021, Happy 牛(NEW)Year

The tragic and tumultuous year of the Rat is fast approaching to an end, in accordance with global cases toping 100 million as mutations add to the spread in the world

February 12th, a new moon day of the first Chinese lunar month, marks the beginning of the Year of the Ox… it will last until next Jan 31, before the Year of the Water Tiger (2022)

In the Chinese Zodiac, the Ox is very hardworking, honest, and trustworthy… that reflects low key, and traditional conservative characteristics; those who are born under the Ox sign are independent and strong people, but very stubborn, weakest in communication skills

Having great patience and a desire to make progress, Ox can achieve their goals by consistent effort; they are not much influenced by others or the environment but persist in doing things according to their ideals, capabilities, and own standards… so 2021 is going to be a year when work will get rewarded, and a year when it is necessary to double our efforts to accomplish anything and fully feel the weight of our responsibilities for economic recovery or consolidation

P. S. you know if the family life is peaceful, everything gets solved… let’s pray for 2021, the Year of the White Metal Cow, a year when all the problems get solved with discipline, new career opportunities, or success in business, prosperity, and wellness for all of us in the coming 12 months

Life Matters

Watching the news, it is a 5-year old boy’s birthday party; balloons in the yard, a driving toy car fit in boy plenty, a man dressed as batman, everything the boy wanted but his parents… then the uncle speaks in front of the camera, ‘we told him that his parents are angles and have to be somewhere else’ – oh no, I thought the parents might have caught coronavirus and sent to hospital, I did not expect both are dead

As the world inches towards 1.62 million COVID-19 deaths, it is difficult to count how many families have lost their beloved/important ones while broken apart, and how many people have been affected not only physically, but also mentally, emotionally and financially

Having been living with my parents for 11 months now, occasionally I bump into some eye-to-eye quiet intimacy moments between the two of them (which honestly, I am not used to)… I know how lucky I am, blessed we are, and even my husband is far away at Boracay, still, he is strong and healthy, enjoying life every day on the island

With vaccines available out there, there is light at the end of the tunnel… although I have no idea when my husband and I will finally reunite with each other, I am pretty sure however, that we will be together one day when the time is right

As for now, stay safe during this holiday season my friend… Merry Christ-mask, Happiness and Health to you and yours in the year ahead

A Novel

So many lives are rapidly disappearing from this world, and so many souls are struggling/suffering during the ongoing global pandemic… more than 63 million people have been sickened and over 1.46 million have died of the coronavirus since the start of this January

Nov 30, the last day of November… I cannot believe it has been almost 11months from the day I left home (at Boracay) where my husband is (safe there fortunately); if 2022 is the year for a gradually returning to normal life predicted by scientists worldwide sounded promising, we are still talking about another year of separation between the two of us and ironically, it continues a big uncertainty

Until today, I could not believe such a tiny virus had tipped the entire world civilization that we human being so bragged about before the year 2020 upside down

It opens a completely new era, by challenging people’s popular beliefs in different categories… tried waking up all, yet seemed few were enlightened at this awkward moment

Yet little by little, slowly I realize that indeed great diversities exist on this beautiful earth… only by respecting the minority seemed impossible or difficult at best, appreciate everything around us and embrace all, we can finally live in harmony with a new world of love, understanding, and appreciation

It is the Holiday Season again… although we are far apart, our hearts remain as close as ever; taking good care and staying safe in these uncertain times; I miss you all

Every Small World

When people are surrounded by a world of fear, anger, or depression… I can see the hopeless grief they are stuck in – confusion built with time became negativity, day by day engulfing them in darkness

When complaint, criticism, or blame became a convenient habit, it is understandable that people are slowly dragged into a black hole… eventually, there is no more light left, live or die is just a matter of body no more soul

With a world of complex information out there, one needs to sort out right from wrong, true from false, fact from fiction, good from bad, listen and hear, look also see… well, if that is too difficult, better pull yourself out and not be bothered, the outside world is noisy anyway

After all, so long as your calm serenity small world remains intact, you are happy and content… aren’t you?

Be safe and sound my friend… hope we can all reunite one day whenever the pandemic is over; in the meantime, continued to be improved by any means possible and let time do the magic, until one day there is a much better and stronger version of ourselves for real

Happy Anniversary: BEST Gifts Ever

Yes, ‘no more pill‘ announced by the expert doctor on Sep 8 recheck finally… I am officially free from taking any more pills from now on; thought that was the BEST gift I was looking forward to until days later, I received a strange call from a delivery person, followed by a bouquet of gorgeous lilies delivered to my parents’ house right in front of me with a hidden love card from my husband for our 17th anniversary celebration this Sep 13

Wow, how lucky I am… having double happiness and two BEST gifts ever; even seemed a bit vanity, I am truly touched and moved at that moment and feeling totally loved; the entire house smells lilies, love quietly fulfills in the air and I am speechless with pleasant surprise and love all around

It took sickness to realize the importance of healthiness… and distance to bring love hearts closer; in time to this global upheaval, so many couples are separated from each other to their own, and yes I learned, through darkness to see the light, after heart break to have hope

Good or bad, life is going on… the pain sooner or later is behind; one needs understand that nothing lasts forever and the moment, only the moment of true living in, is what we really have in this world

P.S. global coronavirus cases now top 31 million, with US continues leading the count… be strong my friend, taking care of each other, and your very own self there

More or Less

Well, I still could not make it back home Boracay… to celebrate my husband’s birthday with him this Aug 12

Seemed Philippine coronavirus cases continued climbing, in the meantime Boracay has opened to local tourists recently…  I started to worry about my husband’s safety accordingly

MAHAL is certainly his concern, tied him up there… stopped him visiting me and staying with me here in Shanghai

As for me, Sep 8 (Tuesday) is the next scheduled hospital recheck and I hope it is the last CT scan I need and the result came out good enough to finally declare my recovery from an almost one-year healing process by the expert doctor on the day

2020, the year of the rat, initiated another 12-year zodiac cycle, automatically reset everything back to its original… the world is seriously transforming and everyone has put up with enormous challenges in a lifetime and I hope you are ready by now, capable enough in this NOVEL reality

About Time

July is here, half year is gone… and by today of July 11, it is also a half year since I left from Boracay

2 more months… the last two months of a one-year recovery process, according to the expert doctor in the latest recheck here in Shanghai

It sounds promising, and easy… my body started to show allergies however, because of the amount of pills I have been taking since last September

The result of blood test is fine though… one day when I am 100% recovered, the suffering and pain of these days might all worth it

Patience, and faith… I tell myself, to hold on with time, until the answer is ready to reveal itself at the right moment

Speak of that, some lost pictures my husband and I took on one of our trips in USA with families a long long time ago, are magically retrieved from the memory stick of the drowned camera deep down under the creek of a trail by a young explorer in Pennsylvania very recently… how wonderful/amazing life is, to help realize that the time is always ripe to do right
