Happy 2017 – the Year of the Rooster

Jan 28, Saturday… it is the first day of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster, and I set myself back White Beach sipping coffee while relaxing

Beautiful ocean right in front… international crowds walking by and occasionally, there’s eye candy popped up randomly; with coconut trees spreading out in blue sky vividly as the background, and soothing lounge music from the restaurant I sit behind, it is always a pleasure for me to observe the unique scene, a true Paradise under Sun in such a casual way with leisure time

Especially it has indeed been a while… non-stop greeting people from all over the world aboard our 42ft Cruising Catamaran MAHAL since last holiday season, then willfully took a short break back in my city Shanghai, indulging myself in dining/entertaining/shopping for couple days meanwhile celebrated my mom’s birthday with parents in my favorite Lost Heaven; finally I have bounced back from the hectic schedule and now with more energy retained for an ongoing genuine Cruising Lifestyle sharing at Boracay

Day by day, year by year… people come and go; meeting up or missed each other, after all I learn to handle in a graceful way with the best flow

Too busy to write a blog last December, so here is the additional tip for 2017, the CNY of the Rooster

2017 is the Year of the Rooster according to Chinese zodiac, and it starts from Jan 28 until next Feb 15. It implies luxury, beauty, and wealth, and people shall have joyful time while enjoying the fruit after diligence in the year

May the year of rooster bring Good Fortune, Good Health, Good Luck, and light up life with Great Success and Prosperous all year through

Best of My LOVE

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered
Forgive them anyway
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives
Be kind anyway
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies
Succeed anyway
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you
Be honest and sincere anyway
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight
Create anyway
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous
Be happy anyway
The good you do today, will often be forgotten
Do good anyway
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough
Give your best anyway
In the final analysis, it is between you and God
It was never between you and them anyway

I was born in a strict family and since I was a child, my parents especially my father, wants me the BEST… not only in neighborhood, school, but also in company, society. Anywhere

To be Outstanding is kind of built-in my gene with my grow up, I am trying my Best to be the BEST… all the time

It is the moment I realize life is Not all about being the ultimately successful, it is also a process, a process to enjoy every tiny bit pleasure, such as do ordinary things with extraordinary love… Happiness is then little by little found in my daily life

If LOVE is the ultimate in life… following my heart, I am the Best of my LOVE

Boo… Happy Halloween

Considering myself lucky… because this Halloween, even my husband is Not around due to his business trip in Korea, yet there are two couples from Tokyo chartered MAHAL for a customized Sunset Cruise between 4-6pm, and kept company with me sailing along the White Beach coastline; not mentioning one of the girls is half Chinese half Japanese, so we indeed communicated well and by the end of the cruise, Not say goodbye but to see each other next time at Boracay 😉

Happy Halloween

Now and Then

It is the last day of the September… raining days are finally over, and the sun is shining brightly

I walked out of the house, sipping coffee at White Beach… just want to double check how unusual quietness/emptiness Boracay is ever, since we are back on the island early this month

Seems there are more cars, tricycles, and people on the main road… also more people and occasionally, tour groups back and forth on the beach road

Still few people comparing with previous crowds at almost every corner though… remind me the scene when we first time travelled at Boracay around seven years ago – quite a number of restaurant/resorts were closed down due to less business during the low season, and majority of the business owners on the island were indeed happy, enjoying those precious off time while partying hard day by day; still remember the saying by then was ‘the most difficult thing is to decide Which Party I want to go today

Well, people working on this island nowadays are so used to non-stop business at all four seasons… I am curious whether they might even forget how leisurely life was by then or could be

Busy Months

Jul 6 I left Boracay visiting my parents in Shanghai, in the meantime MAHAL set off to Subic for new rigging/engines upgrade besides whole yacht maintenance

Jul 18 I lightly packed towards Yunnan province of China, started travelling from its capital city Kunming, to Dali (where Bai ethnic minority located at), to Lijiang (home to the Naxi and several other ethnic minority groups is), until the last stop of Shangri-La (seat of the Dêqên Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture)… flew back in Shanghai on Jul 30 and rested for couple days then on Aug 7, I joined Steve in Manila together back in Subic on Aug 8, keeping his company for his big birthday celebration there

Busy yet rewarding… not only for MAHAL’s extraordinary Sailing in Style performance for day/month/years to come, but also for my own personal life experience to see the world in my eyes and encounter different people on the way of travelling

Due to Steve’s business trip to China on Aug 18, I left Subic to Manila then flew back Boracay on the same date… unpacked and settled home for couples days, I packed again for Aug 22 India trip in company with Steve to Delhi, India’s capital territory combined with both relic of ancient times and modern facilities

Recalling how terribly sick Steve was that night in Manila right before his China business trip of the very next day… he was shaking awfully by the moment we stepped out of the taxi from Subic, and could NOT help trembling like a leaf in front of me; I got seriously worried, feeling his extreme fever from nowhere; asked for a set of three Advils from hotel and watched him taking one after his big birthday make up dinner at Wolfgang in Resort World, then set alarm for his 2nd pill to take in 6hrs, checking him constantly in the night just to make sure his fever is gone 100%

Foodie as I around him can at least help him regain peace in his mind while dining out every night with nutrition for his body to recover quickly after his hectic schedule every day; and finally, we did enjoy authentic Indian food, sightseeing old and new areas of the city with each other; although rushed back in Manila then Subic on Aug 27 for the final stage of MAHAL Upgrade and Maintenance, we both know that we are now ready and it is time to back Boracay very soon

Have and Have Nots

所谓 言者无意,听者有心

No house No car No offspring… ouch, that comment hurts, yet it states the fact

Those have car, house, and kids around… are they content, however? – If so, why they envy the free lifestyle we have?

Guess human being does not get satisfied easily… we tend to believe the grass is always greener on the other side, huh? – We are so used to judge people by what they have, such as dress accessory fancy cars, house villa mansions, wealthy level in society etc

What about soul…?

No loan no mortgage no anything bluffing… are we genuinely happy? Living a life we want, and enjoying what we do?

Otherwise, what’s the point…?

I have witnessed people rich enough yet miserable… and on the contrary, those have not much are much happier, and carefree

So tell me… what is rich what is poor? – Finally, it is the life we are living on/with… happy or not, we know

Stunning

Lost and Found

I thought seeing lights from the WINDOWS yet finally, I realized they are leaks from WINDOWS

I lost all my files in USA while moving files from original folders to Windows 10 Quick Access folders after the upgrade… all gone, all my efforts and time spent in the past (thankfully, my husband had backed up my laptop this February so indeed merely two months’ work disappeared into air)

Well, life has its ups and downs… guess sometimes accident did happen and no one can control it, no matter how much we tried our best to prevent from

Frustrated for a quite long time as I know the BEST solution is allowing myself to feel sorrow and mourn for a while… until the time is right, I would just let go and move on

Fortunately, I have been sharing HAPPY moments on my wechat with friends back in China, so here we are, photo collection for the missing two months’ beautiful memories

Happy Moments
