The Japanese Spirit
ordinarygreen01
Today watch a nice japanese tv drama again. after watching so many hk and japanese tv dramas, I kind of like japanese tv dramas more now. I think they are so specially made. the dialogs are often so meaningful, you kind of can learn a lot and get a lot of inspiration from the drama.... this is so special...... and the setting, always gives you a very clear and peaceful feeling..... is really so wonderful....... I think I learn a lot from watching japanese tv dramas......

This time the drama that we are watching I think demonstrated the special japanese spirit. This drama is about the journey of a young girl who tries to become a top class dessert maker. and japanese people have a spirit of putting their whole heart and soul into what they are making. that is so touching and so moving and so inspirational. that is very unique japanese spirit I think! I'm glad that I watched this drama! after watching it. I felt more energized when making dinner today! heheh.....

also I feel the joy of simple life and be a part of the community which people all love and care about each other, helping each other out. that is so nice and that attitude of life was what I always wanted to have which I have a lot now. so this aspect I was a success I think. :)

I love this parenting book!

Today read more of the parenting book that I just bought, felt so good. remind me how loving and warm I felt when I was with Eric when he was a baby. The book talks a lot about giving love, showing empathy. How important that is for the emotional intelligence development. after reading the book, I look back at Eric's baby photos. He was such a happy baby, and happy toddler too. I'm sure I gave him enough warmth, enough empathy to make him development into a happy strong person. I very rarely see him upset. I feel so heart warming when reading this book. Now I do really understand that "LOVE" is the most important thing about being a mother. Giving love and warmth all the time....... This is so touching..... I'm so glad that I bought this book. best parenting book ever! I'm happy that I've been a good mom. Hope I can continue to do better and be a better mom :D

today

today is another ordinary day. Doing nothing much at home. It's amazing how fast time just flies when I'm doing nothing. My day at home starts at 10am. I watched a few videos on youtube about how to pass the driving test. And that leads to 11am. Then I made a few phone calls about Eric's school holiday program. That leads to passed 11:30am. Which was the time mom arranged to have a little tea time. We made nice coffee and turn on the tv. That's already passed 12pm. Then very quickly it leads to 1pm. Which very quickly leads to 2pm which is very close to picking Eric up from school.

I can't believe time just pass so quickly without doing much of anything. And it's passed quite pleasantly. It's specially nice spending the day with mom. I love spend the day with her. We get along so well and full of harmoney......

A Long Day

It's almost 11pm now, donno why feel like kind of excited right now. Feels like had a busy and fun day but actually didn't really do much. Since moved into this new house, everything feels different now. Never feel depressed about the environment anymore. So what did I really do today... Let me think back....

In the morning wake up pretty late. Because of last night was Chinese New Year Eve. Anyway in the morning mainly was doing nothing really. Didn't do much clean up because yesterday did most of the clean up. I did some of the clean up because I was trying to find Eric's Thomas bath toys. I haven't found it yet. But found out that there are lots of his toys still in the garage. That's what I mainly find out.

I couldn't even recall what exactly I did before 3pm. But anyway, after 3pm, as I promised, I took Eric out for a walk to the nearby shops. We went to the Gardens shopping center. Found out there is a Takeaway there, and seem like a sushi bar but it's not open so not sure where it is. And there is a bakery. And a small diary store. I found out that the gas station is actually operating. That was a good discovery. So it's very close if we needed any gas for the car. The main thing was to buy him an ice block. Which he ate all over his mouth. Can't believe it melted so quickly. Eric had lots of fun riding his scooter. Especially when it's down hill he can ride it pretty far and fast. Lots of fun for him.

So after we got home from that then I helped mom to make dumplings. Then we ate the dumplings which was really good. This is part of our celebration for the Chinese New Year.

After the dumplings me and dad went out to a parking lot to practice parking. After we came back we watched some tv which include a hk funny movie. But we only watched a little bit when we turned to watch the family video that was shot back in China. That was a lot of fun. In the middle I even received a phone call from Anna. She congratulate me for the Chinese New Year. That was nice. It was nice to see our Chinese family video. It's good when you know you belong to a big family. As a part of a lot of people that's nice.

Actually watching the family video was the last thing of the evening. Then I came up stairs to read a story to Eric and make him fall asleep.

That's all I have done today. Nothing much really. But feel like full on. Hope I get a lot of time to do my studies tomorrow. That would be good. That's the most important thing for me right now actually.

Today is weekend I didn't feel too bad. But I still feel like I wish I could have more company. But that will come maybe.

It's interesting I wrote so long about today. There is nothing much really but still had so much to say. No matter what feel kind of excited for today. I love summer time it's so pleasant and days are so long. I like it and I feel excited about it. It's nice can write something here again. Hope I would have a lot to write about very soon..... :D

Feeling peaceful and content......

Today in the morning I get to stay home all by myself.... actually I feel like enjoying it...... I like the open space.... a space with just my own..... the freedom.... that I can do anything I want in peace........ I guess there is a part of me that still very enjoys solitude..... which is a good thing....... so this is the good part about being quiet....... I will always cherish this...... this is really good....... :)

I realize...

Today had a bit argument with mum. Then went online talking to geoffrey. Felt a lot better after talking to him. He said "It's your mother's problem not yours..." I felt a lot better. At least he can acknowledge that it is not my problem. My mom does have some problem, it's good that he acknowledges that. Once said that clear I felt a lot better.

And he also said that I should at least look at the good side about what my parents are trying to do for me. I think he's right with that too. I know how much my parents does for me. So I should always look at the good side as well.

Today I watched some psychology video online as well. It helped me a lot when I learned that I should not care about what other people think of me. Once I realized that, my self-esteem don't depend on how other people respond to me. then I instantly felt a lot better. From now on I don't care about what other people think of me. What a burden off.

This has been quite inspirational. Today I learned something valuable :)

Visited a Church today
ordinarygreen01
Felt quite excited today..... Stuart invited me to visit his church. So me and Eric went to Mt Wellington to his church. After that we went to Silvia Park and had lunch together and went to Toy World.

Felt quite excited.... cause usually I don't have much contact with people much..... but Stuart seem to like me and want to be my friend so I feel so thrilled about this outing today..... :D

Felt really good when I came home as well.... Mom was really happy for us because we both had a happy day out..... and I talked about my day with mom and..... everybody was in a happy mood.... the atmosphere at home was just so happy and warm..... so was really great.....

In the evening my mood was kind of excited don't know why..... maybe because of the caffeine in the tea that I drink or something....... I just felt excited about today overall..... cause I really rarely have outing with anyone at all..... so just this one day make me excited..... and also because of the warmth of my family as well..... it feels so good after an outing come home into a great and warm atmosphere...... and my home is mostly always like this...... just so great......

It's good can make a friend....... now I always have someone to talk to when I go to school......

Recently joined a penpal website and get quite a few responses.... and all from males don't know why....... but females do intimidate me somehow...... I felt more relaxed and less intimidated by males..... the other day read a post by someone online said something similar too..... I guess some people are like that..... but it's good to have some penpals to exchange email with....... although not meeting face to face..... but still feel like there are some people that can talk to and exchange thoughts and feelings...... this is really pretty good..... should have thought of this earlier.... :D

Eric still likes Thomas so much....... when he's at home he just plays with the train tracks and nothing else....... try to find something else that he gets interested to....... like a musical keyboard or something......

It's great that I made a new friend........ what can I do to show my good will toward him? I thought about that.... but can't really think of anything special that I can do.... maybe just being a friendly company is already good..... I guess so.... cause I really can't think of anything special at all.......

Today can stay up late again...... Eric and mom is going to make some birthday surprise for me tomorrow morning so I'm suppose to get up late..... and I'm not feeling really spirited tonight so it's good that I can stay up late tonight and do whatever I like...... :)

Today
ordinarygreen01
Today is the beginning of the third week of my 8 week challenge program. But actually it's week 2 for me because the first week the muscle were sore so didn't excersize much....

But today is the first day of beginning interval training. Felt pretty good. It worked out fine on the treadmill I put the speed to very slow... so I can run as fast as I could and then stop and slow down..... the treadmill basically just show me the time that's all.... but I felt that I run and jump much better on the treadmill then at home on the carpet.... maybe because the surface and that I'm wearing shoes.... but it really was pretty good I was able to run as fast as I can and then slow down.......

After the treadmill I went on the bike.... also doing interval training..... peddle as fast as I can and then slow down...... I found that I was able to peddle really fast for pretty long time..... not like running can only run a while but the peddle could last longer....... and it was amazing how much more calorie that was shown that I burn........ a lot lot much more.... I guess it does spend a lot more calories this way....... and it's pretty cool too can get to peddle as fast as I can without worrying anything...... cause when I can't peddle anymore just slow down........

So today's interval training seems pretty good..... will keep on training like this then.....

For the school part....... today changed to learn java instead of VB.NET as I planed.... and it was really a lot more clearer...... it was still not easy but at least it was all understandable........ so that was good...... I always kind of felt that I like java more..... it's good that I get to switch now...... hope I can get good at it...... will try really hard........

Know more about myself......
ordinarygreen01
We took kind of personality test in a class and I found out more about myself......

I'm kind of shy but still value relationship a lot, want to be around people.... with combination of that make me a good listener and good at empathizing when communicating with people..... that is my strong point I guess...... which is pretty good..... It's good to know that....... something good about myself......

But what I lack is to express more of myself....... cause when I communicating with people...... I'm always the good listener....... but I don't put much output from myself....... to express some of my own opinion too....... that's what I lack as an opposite.......

This comes quite clear about what I'm good and not good....... but it's hard to become more outgoing and to express myself..... I don't know how to change that...... I would really really want to change but just don't know how.......

At least I know that I'm a good listener..... that's not bad.........

The Benefit of Excersize
ordinarygreen01
I seem already begin to see the benefit of my physical excersize now..... It's been only a bit more then a week...... but I seem to be already feel a lot physically stronger..... I can feel my strength of my body when I move...... it's amazing I really like this feeling....... a lot more stronger when I'm walking or doing things...... just so great...... Therefore I can't wait to get back to gym again and excersize...... to make myself more stronger.....

And when I'm resting I also more be able to enjoy the comfort of resting and relaxing....... because after workout of my body it needs good rest....... I feel a lot more better my head feels more clear and more able to concentrate too...... It feels different when I'm resting too........ amazing......

I'm eager to carry on excersizing and see if I would be able to feel even better..... It starting to become like a habit now...... catching the bus at the same time everyday and go to gym....... It's become a habit now so it's not that hard to carry on......

Will see how I will progress...... it's only just the beginning..... but seems like will really be good for me...... cool......
