拜苦路

苦路,就是耶穌由山園祈禱開始,到比拉多衙門受審,並往加爾瓦略山上受難所走的那段路。

釘十字架是一種殘酷的刑罰。滴血而亡之前受刑者必須背上自己的刑具--十字架,走一段桀途,受盡路人的灼灼目光,指指點點。這條苦路,你要它快些走完?還 是慢些走完?

每年天主教教會舉行拜苦路禮儀,追念耶穌在這段路上所受的種種誤會,苦難,受辱及死亡。苦路禮儀不僅是紀念二千年前耶穌的苦難及聖死,也是邀請耶穌陪同我們行人生的路。

生活在世,我們都背負自己的十字架。拜苦路是一個好時刻,讓我們默想自己的十字架,默想自己的苦路。


Trespass

可能是我生性惹火,又可能是乜人都有。

去年低密度單位成交後的第三天,我再次回到房子。繞了一圈,便覺得房子跟成交收樓那天有些什麼不一樣了。

厠板掀了起來。這說明有男人在我收樓後進入過我的房子。浴室洗面盤上怪怪的......咦?鏡子不見了。

莫非上手業主交樓時暗自留下一條鑰匙,然後在成交後潛進物業,取去鏡子?

Walker Books

Children books publisher Walker Books is celebrating her 30th anniversary. A shooting on the sky, echos the light being held by the walking belly belly bear.

I enjoy reading picture books a lot. Walker Books’ founder, Sebastian Walker, had a simple vision for the company: “All that counts,” he said, “is that a child says at the end of the book, ‘Again!’”

Exactly. Definition for nice stuffs is simple and straight-forward. Be it the food, be it the wine, be it the place, be it the people. When you feel like to have it again, the stuff is nice. And you should not need a checklist b4 of after your encounterment.

derek, desertfox, unkle4 and lee siu lung, I was talking about this

Getting Started with iPhone Web Apps


An iPhone web application—or iPhone web app—uses Web 2.0 technologies to deliver a focused solution that looks and behaves like a built-in iPhone application. iPhone web apps run in Safari on iPhone, the unique implementation of Safari that provides full-featured web browsing on iPhone OS–based devices and responds to touch-based gestures.

Start Here

To develop a great iPhone web app you need to:

  • Optimize your web content for Safari on iPhone

  • Design a user experience and user interface that follows Apple’s guidelines

Choose next how you want to get started—by reading about the basics, getting your hands on some code, or diving into specific technologies.

Want to get familiar with the fundamentals?

Prefer to learn by doing?

  • Web Application Tutorial walks you through using Dashcode to create a simple web application you can run in Safari on iPhone.

  • Simple Browser is a sample project you can use to find out how to develop a productivity style iPhone web app (the built-in iPhone Settings application is an example of this style).

  • CardFlip is a sample project you can use to find out how to implement the back-to-front flip most utility style iPhone web apps perform (the built-in iPhone Weather application is an example of this style).

Want to find out how Safari on iPhone supports the web technologies you use?

Go In Depth

Sometimes you need task-focused information or answers to specific questions to get started. Browse the popular tasks described below for a more targeted way to start development on your iPhone web app.

  • Use visual effects to add richness to your iPhone web app. Safari CSS Visual Effects Guide describes how to use CSS properties to implement stunning visual effects in your iPhone web app without resorting to static images, Flash, or Dynamic HTML.

  • Take advantage of the Multi-Touch interface to allow users to tap, flick, and drag content in your iPhone web app. “Handling Multi-Touch Events” in Safari Web Content Guide describes how to register for and respond to these multi-touch events; Safari DOM Extensions Reference documents the WebKit DOM extensions that support them.

  • Add links to built-in iPhone applications to make your iPhone web app feel more integrated with users’ devices. Apple URL Scheme Reference describes how to add links that open Phone, Maps, iTunes, and more.

BIOTHERM 基因透白調色底霜

我戀家,所以晚上不大願意外出,寧可在家蘑菇。話雖如此,但有時盛情難卻,主人家親自邀請,我也樂於出席其中一些場合,聽聴別人的故事,增廣見聞。

Toyota and managing brand reputation

Toyota 出事後許多亞洲企業都兔死狐悲,想好好引以為鑒 。與 Wai Lim 討論,我說 Toyota 咁大檸樂,一沉百踩,人人喊打,皆因「樹大招風」。

樹大就一定招風,這個風可如何應對呢?McKinsey有些好點子:

Think outside the box

On her official website, Tangberg says: teams can easily collaborate with natural, life-like views of colleagues while sharing multimedia in high-definition clarity
Easy to use yet supported by the most advanced features and functions for mission-critical communication.

When I walked into the conference room I saw my audience, the senior managers, and two huge Tangberg consoles. I got the cable plug-in and switched on my notebook... but my ppt did not appear on the screens. It seemed that the projector was out of service. Only the video conferencing function was working.

My audience was so forgiving that they did not show any impatience. Quite the opposite, managers started discussing for a solution. Then one of them came up with a brilliant idea, "Hey 70/F, I saw the video cam is working. Why don't you focus the cam with the screen of your PC and get the camera zoom in? I think that is an alternative way to make your ppt appear on the TVs."

So I fine tuned the focus and got the cam eye zoom in and eventually, we made it happen.

Everybody clapped and concluded "This is a vivid demo of THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!" Yeah, outside the Tangberg box.

Nobility

我三十出頭,但我很喜歡這個年紀。

女人有幾多個三十?

一個。

我三十出頭,但我沒有白活,因為我開始能夠掌握並支配自己的生活。

正如別被時裝支配,是人穿衣服不是衣服穿人;是人在生活,不是生活迫人。

五天工作,一天work from home。在辦公室我堅持做自己相信的事,工餘時間我亦堅持過自己想要過的生活。

已婚並已經成為爸爸媽媽的同事叫我好好享受單身貴族的生活,因為結婚生子便是人生的另一個階段,快樂是昇華的快樂,但生活也多了責任和羈絆。

這「貴族」二字讓我想起法國大革命的貴族,而對我來說,nobility 是一種無論客觀環境順逆,都追求質感生活的人生態度。Melanie recaps:

...life carried on almost as normal with a court of sorts being formed at the Tuileries. In some ways the change of pace was good for the family as they saw more of each other and had more time to themselves, although guards were ever present. Finally and ironically, Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and Élisabeth had the low key, simple family life that they had always craved.

Marie Antoinette and Élisabeth spent many hours together, working at embroidery, reading and chatting about life just as they had always done. Touchingly, Élisabeth kept up with the news about Montreuil, where work carried on just as it had always done.

In private, Élisabeth enjoyed reading, having had over one hundred books sent to the Pavilion de Flore from her personal library. Her books included ‘the works of Cicero, Seneca, Horace and Plutarch. Treatise on Friendship by M. de Sacy. Gibbon’s ‘Decline and Fall’. Sacy’s Bible in 31 volumes. St Augustine’s ‘Confessions’. The bishop of Saint-Malo on the Holy Angels. Treatise on True and Solid Piety by St François de Sales. Fénélon on the Existence of God. Fénélon on the Education of Girls. The Spirit of St Teresa, culled from her writings. Mascaron’s funeral sermons. Mezenguy’s Lives of the Saints…’

She loved walking in all weathers in the still beautiful Tuileries gardens, as well as playing draughts with her niece and nephew and billiards with her brother, the King. Another favourite pastime was painting, which she did while seated at a window overlooking the Seine, writing to her friend, the Marquise de Bombelles: ‘This amuses, occupies and distracts me, and I assure you that one needs all that.’ Rather sadly, she was most fond of painting nature scenes, which must have reminded her of all that she was now missing.

However, life was not entirely untroubled. The royal family were troubled with the insults and impudent behaviour of not just the common people but also their own guards. Comte Ferrand wrote about Élisabeth that: ‘Nearly every afternoon, during her stay at the Tuileries, she went to the chapel. To get there she had to cross the guard rooms. Their remarks, their jokes, their sarcasms, often interspersed with impudence and impiety, did not stop her. Their spite increased when they saw she was indifferent to their derision; but their audacity was forced to lower its eyes before her. She seemed to vanquish them, less by the pride of her glance than by the influence of her virtue.’

跑在時間前面

【敗犬女王】中的單無雙這邊廂挑釁一起爭上位的男同事,豪情壯語說:「想嬴我?你跑在我前面呀!」可是那邊廂,小孩子們卻執意稱呼她一為「姨姨」,因為她眼尾有紋,面部皮膚有欠光澤。

我們這一代女子,有幸成長於大學教育普及和兩性機會平等的大時代下,你說我本性好勇也好,你說我愛獨立也好,你說我為了自身籌謀也好,事實是我們都在跑。

跑生活,跑理想,跑夢。

人生路上的跑步可以是一種自我鍛練,未必也不必跟別人競賽,鬥個你勝我敗。但如果對自己有所期望,便會想有突破。時間凝聚經歷,年紀沉澱成就。但我想突破時間的局限,我想跑在時間前面,我想出色得來保持姿色。

我喝了 Fancl Deluxe TENSE UP 一個多月,人生路上我又跑多一個多月,感覺良好。在這忽冷忽熱的人間三月天,我的皮膚狀態大勇,水潤富光澤。Wai Lim 說:「車,可能全是因為愛情的滋潤呢。」我不置可否,self-fulfilling prophecy 這回事是有的,而且女人從來是感覺的動物。各位女士,試飲 TENSE UP /試試跟那個你新認識的男人約會,給你自己一個機會去試試是否 fulfilling。Meanwhile,cost 都係有限數啫,係咪?

Castle Decor


Candies of shoes were placed at the sitting room to attract those funny creatures.

But then when creatures came they discovered that the ceiling is being covered in the clouds of lights.

They were scared and they escaped to the bathroom to seek their shelter.
