I wasn't feeling well... Negativity in thoughts, feelings of anxiety washed over me... A change of thought led me to the library: get some materials for my research, seek some peace and quiet time, it might ease the tensions and aggravation.

Passed a shelf and this book caught my eyes, my hand reached for it and brought it with me. After getting the resources that I need, I decided to spend some time reading it.

The first page opens into a full view of the beautiful site of Borobudur, a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple in MagelangCentral JavaIndonesia, as well as the world's largest Buddhist temple, and also one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world. The temple consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome. The temple is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa. (Source: Wikipedia)

That, was a quite a sight. I've been there before and seeing that photo spread across the first 2 pages this book brought me back into my memories of Borobudur instantly. That, clears up some of the negativity looming within me.

Received from my dearest ex-boss and friend Peggy Tan: what each animal in the Chinese Zodiac symbolises and represents. Why and how they are arranged in the Zodiac. Recall the legends of the 12 Zodiac (12生肖的传说/故事), it's show how reflecting what ancesters wished upon their decendents: the desired virtues to possess. I think that this should be shared although this ain't beauty related. 虽然以下的内容源自Whatsapp友群互传的内容(属实性无从追究), 也和美容沾不上边, 我觉得这是一篇的内容很具启发性。也应该大肆转发。我指的是十二生肖的含义及祖先们对于自子孙孙们的期许。

*****************************
老外嘲笑十二生肖,國人反問讓人深思!

有一次,一群中國人參加接待了一個由歐洲貴族組成的參訪團的活動。
他們中的大多數跟王族有親戚關係,非常有學問和修養,待人彬彬有禮,但他們的修養背後隱藏著一種傲慢。最後一天聚餐,可能酒喝多了,這些貴族的言談舉止變得比較率性。
席間,一位德國貴族站了起來說:你們中國人,怎麼屬什麼豬啊,狗啊,老鼠啊!不像我們,都是金牛座,獅子座,仙女座……真不知你們祖先怎麼想的!

I've gotten 3 books earlier this year and thus far finished the "Body Language Of Love" and just very recently done with the author Queen 女王's 3rd book -女王力 which I'm translating it to "Queen Power", perhaps something similar to the kinda thoughts & perspective of "Girl Power".

This book was written in chinese, but still, I wish to share my thoughts after I'm done reading it.

My first thoughts were like.. If only I got this earlier (including her earlier books), I would have not made all those silly mistakes that I did.. yet somehow it makes me felt better that I might have done stupid things, it could hace gotten worse, and compared to what her friends went through, I should be grateful I didnt.

I'm not gonna talk about the contents of the book as its gonna be a spoiler for potential readers. I would like to emphasize that you will know what to expect from this book just by the words on its cover:

"女人身价自己决定!

我为自己而活,我为己悦而容!"

The above 2 lines basically means:

"A woman decides her value!

I am truly inspired by their video and I find that its a mind-opener to really build a healthy relationship.

Watch "✿ HUSBAND TAG & RELATIONSHIP ADVICE (Online dating, Interracial Couples) ✿" on YouTube
