2 1/2 years have passed since my last entry on this blog. I am sorry to keep you waiting. It has been hard without much motivation to write. Anyway, since I like to whine, I will talk about whining.
發牢騷 - Whine
Is it good to whine? Sometimes, it is good to whine to get things off your chest, so you can be done with it and not get bogged down. However, constant whining gets you nowhere and is unconstructive. Instead of fixing issues, you are wasting your time whining.

過河拆橋 - 每日一辭(英)
Better print out this news. Just in case you have the need in the future.
I don't know why "Dismantle the bridge after crossing it" (過河拆橋) came to my mind. Maybe because I don't trust that Ministry of Foreign Affair would really honor this for civilians.

Chinese Communist, KMT government and Ma are all masters in the art of obscurantism to achieve such ultimate control of their people.
What is “Obscurantism”? It is an art to deliberately restrict knowledge (withhold knowledge from the public) and deliberate vagueness in an attempt to obscure the facts.

As I was watching the snowy scene (yes, we broke our mega snow record and we are still having snow in May), I thought this seemed a good time to think of something gloomy, something that I didn't like. Yuck! Rats! I just hope that we don't skip spring and head right into summer.

Break a leg is usually said to people who peform in plays before they go on the stage. It is to wish them good luck, tell them to get on the stage and do a great job in the play.

For me to pick up the pen to write is hard, as I lack the motivation, which is hard to come by. It is also hard to find time to write juggling between work and family, especially with two little kids. I have recently set up a Facebook page for my blog, hoping to find motivation and inspiration within. I mentioned in my Facebook page that maybe I could start with posting a phrase each day. It was a thought but maybe it could serve as an incentive for me to write again. Here is the phrase for the day.
