City Angels

I expected nothing when I took the training offer from MetLife after several interviews… simply thought I could learn things, better than staying at parent’s house all the time (yes, I am still stuck in Shanghai and could not reunite with my husband and luckily, we both are fine but feel lonely without each other’s company)

Challenged by the strict daily training schedule from 8am to 7pm for the very beginning of three weeks straight, as well as a huge amount of information and knowledge from the training courses to take in at one go meanwhile endless tests to pass

Followed by an even more intensive daily working schedule with tremendous pressure to pursue a series of performances in a week/month period… oh my, what an experience it was and still is

It did open my eyes and continued to show me a real world with majorities living in, for their entire life that I have never seen before… touched by every soul when each opened up sharing the most sacred story from the daily routine or the ordinary, helped me understand every aspect of life with true, and the most tender love hidden behind or deep inside

At last, I witness angels do exist in this world… sometimes, they might be lost in reality, exhausted from every battle they were trying to protect people from the uncertainty, or even broken wings and dropped/fell for a moment; then you see, they are flying higher meanwhile helping more, for the love and the responsibilities they have promised to take in this life

Summer Here

May 9, I accompanied my mom for afternoon tea on Mother’s Day, then started to learn the LPship in the MetLife Shanghai office from the next day

While sharing a genuine cruising lifestyle with guests onboard MAHAL at Boracay earlier, I realized what a great pleasure when witnessing people finally relaxed, opening their hearts, and embracing the true being of themselves with the beautiful nature around… breathing the fresh air, totally indulging in and slowly, being part of the serene paradise under the sun

Living in this world not long enough, yet seemed that the majority had lost themselves for a while… I am so grateful that the moment of sailing with us worked miracles, reawakening who people really are, and continued inspiring them about the passion of living with time

May 31, a family day besides graduation ceremony held in MetLife after my birthday… I finally acknowledged the importance of life insurance in a family/society, and how serious and urgent to help people understand the necessity of insurance for their future (to avoid the loss might happen in times of uncertainty in a life span)

If the empathy and companion for guests onboard at that time were only what I can do (meanwhile felt helpless and sad) when they were sharing their life story about the unexpected sickness, kids’ education burden, or old parents care etc, I can certainly offer more to the people I met from now on, by helping them with a customized insurance plan for their secure future (to regain confidence in life, because of solid economic support in case of sickness ahead or life loss in the family)

So the LPship, either a Life Planner, or a Life Partner… does sound appropriate for me to reach the dream of growing old together with people around in this life

Love you all my friend… taking very good care of yourself everywhere/anywhere

Risen after Easter

Everything is Possible

Chapter I – The Passion of the Christ

Agony in the garden
he knew what was gonna happen
afraid he can barely take that much suffering/pain
shaking, trembling
he could not help losing himself

Picking up faith
shook off any doubt
go ahead
he decided to take the destiny
‘so be it’, even Mary said/understood

He died, when the time was coming
carried every bit of the sin from the world he was living in

Chapter II – Risen

3 days later, he is resurrected
yet he learned, even the followers
(once betrayed, denied, and fled away)
continued having doubts
despite every miracle they have personally witnessed

After all
the presence helped/proved nothing
one cannot wake up anyone pretending to sleep
it is finally up to the inner self to be awake/be aware

This entire life
every breath is a miracle, comparing to those have lost
every moment can be enjoyable, if looking deep inside one found self

Cheer up, smile
feel the existence
to help, to comfort, to cure one and the rest
then to shine to rise as the one and the only

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
