Too Tired

Today I had my observations by my CTs...
So tiring, it's like a war, you know.
I just hope things turn out well.
I am too exhausted to think about the results.
I just want to sleep.

Oh my 天!

C'est La Vie

我只想enjoy everything that comes my way,即使它是很棘手、很不堪、会让我苦恼或拖累我的事情。
庆亮曾经说过:“生活 - 生命要活过,才算。”
I agree with him.
I will live life to the fullest.
I will fulfill my dreams one day.
I will make decisions and not regret.

In the musical Rent, Mimi said,"Forget regret."
Seriously, how long is life for you to regret?
Live to the fullest, C'est La Vie!

So exhausted!

I am so damn exhausted.
Somebody save me from lesson plans and all the preparation of lessons.
If anyone ever again tells me that teaching is easy, I'll punch that person's face for sure.

Therapeutic Cherry Cheesecake

Okay people, if you have been following me on Twitter then you will know that I made a cherry cheesecake yesterday.
Yes, after work, my dear.
It was very therapeutic, you know.
Well, enough said. Here are some pictures of my famous cherry cheesecake.
Not that famous yet, but once you eat it, it will be.
The cheesecake before I add on the cherry topping......
Me spreading the cherry conserve......
The final product. I could not help but took one small slice. Hee......

Reappraisal and Research

Probably because my theatre lecturer was Ah Liang, and he is quite a strong believer of Konstantin Stanislavski; that I, too, fell in love with the concepts of Stanislavski.

"The revolution thundered in and made its demands on us. There began a period of new explorations, of reappraisal of the old and the search for new ways. ...This link with the past and the eagerness to move to an unknown future, the searching quests of the new theatre - all this helped to keep us from succumbing to the dangerous 'charms' of formalism ... We did not succumb; instead we began our quest for new ways, cautiously but doggedly." - Stanislavski

I like it when I saw this chunk of words.
It was a reminder to me that we need to constantly review the past and come up with something new, having the courage to charge forward into the unknown, knowing that even if it is going to be a great challenge to step out of our comfort zone.
I am now in a new cell group (my leader is Tham Tham!!!) because our original group multiplied (praise be to God!), we had to split up in order to multiply more.
When I got the firsthand news that we are going to split, I knew immediately in my heart, I will move to the new group. Probably because I was heavily influenced by Stanislavski? Hahaha.
Whatever it is, we do need the courage, the faith and the perseverance.

"Let the wisdom of the old guide the buoyancy and vitality of the youth; let the buoyancy and vitality of the youth sustain the wisdom of the old." - Stanislavski

In here it says the wisdom of the old, I personally interprete it as the wisdom from the lessons of the past, and the buoyancy and vitality of the youth, I see it as the life and the vibrance of the present.

Banned From Local Supermarts?!

My friend sent me this.
Damn funny.
Check it out.

This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.
After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to
Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunately, my wife is like most women - she loved to browse.
Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Wal-Mart:

Dear Mrs. Samsel,
Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store.
We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store.
Our complaints against Mr. Samsel are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.
2 . July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.
3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.
4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away.'
5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on layaway.
6. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.
7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.
8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'
9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.
10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the 'Mission Impossible' theme.
12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.
13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'
14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!' And last, but not least .
15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!'

I wished I can do some of the stuff as mentioned above.
How fun......
Can you imagine?
