Today, it was last day of 6th week in CPTC. Conducted a weekly test 5 revision before taking at R207 at 10.30am. I thought i am doomed in test this time around but i am capable to do plenty questions without doubts after verify the answers from Professional + Prodigy Ronald.
Having early dismissal for everyone on 11am, taking train home with Su, Jingyang and Cynthia as they proceed to Simei Ite for looking Ms Tan. I passby to the barber shop to have haircut yet there was ample time for this day. When returning to home, Used my computer to update photos and applications in Hi5. Back in action on playing my Facebook application for long hours!
The climate is so humid and scorching today! At last, there are 4 available days of vacation of preparation for Early & Prosperous Lunar New Year. I hoped that it was a memorable special celebration on this year. Argh...I am going nuts due to either lack or not enough of wonderful sleep well.
Here are some of Early Lunar New Year's Poems:
The World Is Not Sufficiently in Order (The Year of the Dog)
The world is not sufficiently in order,
However much one wishes it were so.
Eros is sincere but rarely loyal,
Yearning for a joy that cannot be,
Even as I cleave to my design.
All I want and do is by design,
Reducing what might sing to what might be,
Offering the hope that, if I'm loyal,
Fortune will be fair, and what I sow
Today I'll reap in proper order.
Heroes are the sentinels of order,
Ever vigilant to live just so:
Dependable, consistent, honest, loyal
Overseers of what ought to be,
Given the chaos deep in the design.
There May Be Some Who've Wondered Why the Rat (The Year of the Rat)
There may be some who've wondered why the rat
Happens to be first to have a year
Exclusively devoted to his name.
Yet clever, crafty creatures never fear:
Eventually they'll win -- that's where they're at!
And this is how it came about: The rat,
Racing for the prize, fell towards the rear.
Out of breath, he thought he'd lost the game.
Fast rampaging Bull was drawing near;
The problem was: How to reach his back?
Here came by the lost, high-leaping cat.
Eureka! Up they went, the two friends dear,
Riding on the bull's back towards fame.
At the last, Rat pushes Pussy clear,
Then leaps ahead of Bull -- and that was that!
Tolerance Is Hard to Tolerate (The Year of the Boar)
Tolerance is hard to tolerate,
Hinting, as it can, of condescension.
Even so, it has a good intention,
Yielding an alternative to hate.
Embracing difference truly can create
An overwhelming love for all expression,
Resulting in a freedom of impression
Open to all sides of the debate.
For me, the truth's a wilderness of stars,
The universe revealed in all its glory.
How can one choose just one small bit of sky,
Estranged by one's beliefs from all the rest?
Being isn't bounded by one's bars;
Oceans aren't summed up in one story.
All that is will inundate one's why,
Removing walls long laid across one's quest.
Tolerance Is Hard to Tolerate (The Year of the Boar)The point is just that I don't see the point:
However much one wants to be turned on,
Ecstasy can put things out of joint;
Yearning is for what will soon be gone.
Each can choose content or discontent;
All are happy, if they would be so.
Revelation isn't Heaven sent;
Out of what you are comes what you know.
Forget, then, the pursuit of the sublime.
There is no thing that's needed -- all is here.
Happiness will settle in, in time,
Enduring, though the weather may turn drear.
One must plod to plow, and plow to plant.
X marks the heart, where lies all one could want.
Lunar New Year Represents
Luck is like a tide pulled by the moon,
Undulating through the undertow.
None can tell how far that wave might go,
Afloat upon the wash's wind-blown spume.
Remember, then, each year to celebrate
New turnings of the tide that bears us all,
Each to ends no flailing can forestall,
Whether good or ill, the choice of fate.
Yet knowing well one's wishes face the wind,
Even so, one does what one can do,
Alert to rituals that spirits woo,
Rendering what renders them benign.
That's all for it. A short entry today! Cya..
