【閱讀心得】《地獄》(丹.布朗) 但丁的文藝復興

地獄 丹.布朗 dan brown
開始的第一句就嚇到我!
地獄最黑暗的地方,保留給那些在道德存亡之際袖手旁觀的人。

閱讀丹布朗的《失落的符號》是2010年的時候,時間過好快!我還記得當時我瘋狂的看,因為劇情發展真的太刺激緊迫了!

《地獄》嘛,其實真的有點類似上一本的《失》,作者幾乎把可以用的文藝復興的知識都不浪費的丟了進去。其實我還蠻enjoy閱讀過程啦,邊閱讀邊google了解那時期的作品和人物,就認識了一些新東西。感覺就好像去了博物館繞了一圈。

看了這本書後的後遺症就是:好想去意大利!

但是嘛,作者寫作方式好像有點怪怪的。有些沒必要的劇情卻以非常讓人在意的方式去寫。比如有一部分席耶娜被很帥氣的船夫扶下船時,那位年輕船夫用很曖昧的眼神看著席耶娜希望她拋棄兩位身邊的男士跟他回到船上。很奇怪啊!我還以為這船夫過後還會有什麼出現之類的,結果扶了下船就掰掰了。

…這樣這段到底是想幹嘛。

基本上,這本書算不上緊湊,沒有刺激的感覺。主角們就是一直跑跑跑。然後跑到累了終於想起可以用手機上網查資料,我本來前面就想說為什麼不用電話查資料啊! 這大概就是以現代那麼科技背景打地基的壞處吧,反正機不離手啊 😂

主角雖然跑,卻還很有心情的介紹和欣賞其中遇到的藝術品。其實現在回想起來,有點類似上了文藝復興藝術作品主題的一課。但是不讓人討厭的課 😊

這次因為2016 FF的聖誕節交換禮物所以從HY那收到了這本作品,之前一直想入手卻一直被推啊推的幾乎推出了to讀列表。

其實這本也不小了,2013年出版。所以我遲了4年😂 為什麼書出版總是比閱讀來的快啊,我讀書範圍明明就已經很小了,還是好多,好多,好多書要看的啊啊啊啊

當初收到這本書的時候我有點“…”, 因為本身不喜歡電影封面的書籍。結果怎麼知道原來外面的是電影海報啊!攤開來又見到我最喜歡的原裝扮封面 😁


超感謝送這本書的那位😆

好好的看完2017年的第#11本了!

- 地獄最黑暗的地方,保留給那些在道德存亡之際袖手旁觀的人。
- 親愛的,永遠不要忘記你是個奇蹟。
- 在狼群包圍下把頭埋進沙堆裡的鴕鳥才是瘋狂。
- 沒有比懷抱目標的聰明人更有創意…或更有毀滅性的了。
- 巧合比大多數人想像的少多了。
- 貪婪是舉世共通的罪惡。
- 科學進展得太快,已經沒人知道在哪裡畫出界線了。
- 『記住今晚…因為這是永恆的開始。』公認是但丁說的
- 在危險的時候,沒有比不行動更大的罪惡了。

Talk to yourself.20 - Sungha Jung Live in Singapore 2017

I realize I always can't resist the sounds come from guitar, they are so beautiful!

Nothing is more happening than the Sungha Jung concert yesterday in last 3 weeks.

The moment he walk to stage, wow, I SAW A FAMOUS GUITARIST! Well, that feeling. Without a word, he start playing his first song. SH always speak with guitar, the 1st time he posted a video with vocal, the comments floor flood, everyone surprised.

I guess there is a big group of friends behind, hmmm or maybe it's SG fans club maybe, they are building abit of party atmosphere, which is quite interesting. When SH said it's last song for tonight, they "OWWWWWWW", and SH seems heart pain "aww....when i said last song, it's not a real last song" , lol. means enchore.

So no one leave when he finished the "last song" and he unplug his guitar and leave the stage, applause non-stop. That aura is interesting, they appreciate his performance. And end up he is back for a real last song. I wonder will people really leave when the 1st time he unplug and gone if he didn't mention before hand. That will be funny.

There is a lucky draw before the final song, 2 winners. The funny is SH mistakenly give both album prize to the 1st winner. When the mc going 2nd lucky draw, he is in a nervous to look for the translator. And the mc laughed after he heard that! And ask "1st winner, are you holding 2 albums?", he go and grab the 2nd album back and said "she steal a winner!" LOL. This mc cute though.

Before SH start the last song, he said.."i have alot album at my home..so after the show, please don't go home". The audience sat beside me can't help herself to say "so cute..." LOL. Then! the last song he played call "HOME"! CONFLICT AH WEI!

Yea, since I went there, so I bought the album and go for signature session as well. This is my FIRST album in my whole life! But very sad & disappointed there is no photo during signature session :(

Anyway, I manage to shake hand with him, the moment i raise my hand, SH throw his pen and hold my hand with his 2 hands, and say thank you. SHIT! HE IS SO SINCERE! SO SO SO SINCERE.

Respect.

Again, a young guy, but with mature attitude. Is musician world full of mature people? LOL

But he is abit rush during signature session, I feel like tell him...don't rush, your fans won't want you to rush.

Of course, I only said "thank you". #LOL

There is an annoying person always clap before the song ended, EVERY SONG! He/She do this for every song! So annoying ah!!!


Yea, a lot of friends is asking me, yes, I'm going alone. MEH. Transition, is quite annoying. But it's okay, this is life. This is my life. I shall face them. Just that I don't know how long I can take it before everything is settle. It's quite tiring. I've been too tired to this lifestyle.



Home desk books growing after the latest 2 books purchase. Damn thick. Can't wait to read them after Inferno by Dan Brown Im reading at the moment.

Talk to yourself.19 - What's next?

Last since May. Stop posting for TTYS series blog post every week is not because that I'm lazy, but due to another consideration : think-before-write. Too public, is a problem. Too private? macam is a problem also. Mafan ah.

That's actually quite a lot of "moods" in one month.

Sometimes...
I keep moving, I keep the pace, until it become a natural move, tot that we are coming from same directions and heading to same directions. But with a shock hit, I got recalled why am I standing here, alone. With who, for what, since when, where to go, and what's next. Sometimes things are not moving with a targets, but a natural moves, just because it's a habit that already formed into a shape. I don't know what is the reason now, I can't even find a reason to self convince now. You too? Do you?

Until I doubt and question - why? Just why.

=(


Clean up your mind,and...
Next,
language is a powerful communication method created by creator of the world (? whoever), I really believe so. But why! Why sometimes there are peoples that don't choose to speak out clearly when they actually have requests form in mind. Why!! So difficult meh!! Drop into such communications is even more tiring than the forceful game, mind tired. Giksim.

The game still moving on. Forceful game. It's actually tiring at first stage, but human is the living creature that have strong skills in adapt to a new environment. So when the game doesn't have new shocks, ingredients, rules, magics anymore, it brings to "immune". and boring. and in the end, when you look through, they are disappointed.

I VERY DISAPPOINTED AH!

If nothing new, why don't just leave me in peace. Can? Can? Can?

This week moving on for another targets for the secret project. Anyway it's not a secret anymore. because可以出来见人了.....Research over the Raya Weekend, for DEMO PREPARATION. Dark circle also come out liao.
The whole project, planning since March? With ideas, positions, flows, tools, environments -- is a good components collecting progress. And finally all these hardworks come into a very very brief version power point with 23 slides. LOL

Thanks for all the teammates. THIS IS CALL TEAMWORK! TEAMWORK AHHHH! Without you guys, I cannot focus to make it complete! for 1st stage. Well, excited keep short, the next is coming, with a real teamwork have to involved. :)

Next main focus
1. project code #PS - up for product web page + documentation
2. project code #NP - eWallet


Jira project management summary...hmm. Team is playing with task count recent weeks.
Last 14 days...I have 59 items created, 6 of them pending, 26 of them tasks arranged to teammates, 33 self feeds.
Hmmmmmm...before this statistic introduced, I never expect these numbers...it's a bit scary, no? 2 weeks 59 tasks, this is only from me! we said "I'm busy", but no visibility. Now with visibility available, the environment is clear, too clear, very clear. Overload, healthy, efficient, fast & furious, I mean fast. Either we realize it's overload, or we think that we have a balance workload. Fine, I'm still balance and healthy one.


Oh....
During the bazhang day, and staying alone in SG. End up, I still didn't eat dao 粽子, what in english...xxxx rice something. Damn. And coincidentally I got to propose a new song for Guitar lesson - 3000 miles away. huh? I miss home. Ok la, I know my home is just 300km away. Not so far. But still, I miss home. 😂


Ermmmm...
I always attempt to clean my desk. But always, end up, it become more full.
Seems like I'm building camp in office.
...
Damn. OT no more.


And finally,
Today is my last guitar lesson.
Thanks King George's Music Academy!
Thanks Alexis! and yea, when you start drink black kopi, please text me. Jie Jie bring you go la kopi.
Thanks Darius for a short part time assist! I believe you will gain students that will say "I miss you" to you too!
and thanks Z aka Zacharie aka Zack Shreds for the few months teaching! Enjoy your NS, and enjoy your carrier in future. I can imagine it will be fun!

They are a good music school team, I appreciate the thoughtful teaching & guidance for this 1234567 months. And the young energetic in team. Damn, I not old too k! Just that we are in different generation.

But frankly speaking, they are inspiring, like...they know what they want, and they are working hard & playing harder to achieve.

When they come into consideration about transferring transition, hmmmmm..that's made me feel the world is so ironically. As a student there, I don't allow myself to judge their experience & expertise with their age. Yea they are young, so what. The fact is, they are a professional in this field. Just leave it to them and trust them, they are willing to share everything.

Sincerely hope they have the best of luck in all of their future endeavors. Group of young & energetic fellas, looking forward! :)

Back to last week of October 2016. I attended for the first trial lesson, hmmm I actually have a firm decision to sign for term, but since I can have a trial rate for a session, why not? LOL. There is a bit of psycho barrier actually,
1) learn at this age? really ma?
2) music environment, environment that we don't usually have chance to approach to?
That's actually the problem that always stop a non-musician to move the first step. And what, the people around will show a shock face "huh you learning music? at this age?" MEHHHHHH. End up I drag this for 5 years. I bought my guitar 5 years ago, attempt to self learning, and end up leave it with spiderweb for 5 years.

But when I moved my step to look into different world, then I noticed there are lots of people doing the same thing, learn instrument in different age, I'm not the special ones, but I'm special when I choose what myself preferred. And ironically, the so call "unfamiliar world" is actually always welcome us. No one actually stopping you, but yourself. I glad that I moved. Well, even I pause now. Pause, but not stop. LOL

This CNY I brought my guitar home for a long holiday. My family shocked. But they never ever have a single negative comment on my own life, my mom & my father as cool as usual like they see guitar see dao boring liao, my sisters tried to momo guitar said "i never touch before", my bro take from me and told me he know how to play 海阔天空 end up he can't strum a single chord, my niece & nephew just sit beside and look at me even I practicing the same chords for hours.

And when I back at April, my father told me "I asked xxx to customize a tall chair, you can play guitar with it!" And I received this photo after I back to SG from the short break.
I love them. They are the coolest family members in the world. I always love them.

By the way, there is a special thing I noticed since I join the lesson - timing. Their timing concept is really something very different and fun. If the class is 7pm, you reach at 6.45pm, that's "very early". If you reach at 6.55pm, that's "early". If you reach at 7pm, that's perfect timing. WTHUAK! It's like you must have a perfect strum on perfect timing, zhoon zhoon. LOL

Well, thanks to myself for choosing to move for this step. Good job Yin2 *pat shoulder

Yes, I will keep playing guitar.

【心得】《迷霧之子番外篇:執法鎔金》 布蘭登.山德森

迷霧之子番外篇:執法鎔金 布蘭登.山德森
番外篇,我還以為會是三部曲中其中一位角色的獨立故事,比如沼澤或鬼影。萬萬沒想到,是一個屬於最後帝國300年後的故事。其實這番外,根本就是作者準備本傳的橋樑吧?聽說這系列準備出本傳啊,幸好啊我還跟得上時間點把前傳三部曲給看完了。(^^)v

社會背景全變了,保留的是那經過300年洗刷而開始薄弱的金熔基因。這個年代不再有可以燒全部金屬的迷霧之子,嗯?所以300年後有人就做怪了,想要把傳說中的迷霧之子“創造”出來。然後很神奇的,300年前各自生活在各自的部落的族群,現在卻一起生活了。這一點,總是讓我莫名的感覺是很棒的進化論。山神真貼心 ( ´∀`)

瓦和偉恩,是個雙生師,就是擁有熔金術和藏金術的人。反正300年過了,基因怎麼混成這樣也可想而知。故事裡面出來對打的小boss 邁爾斯 還是克羅司血統的呢。真是一時接受不來這種進化程度。而瓦也是一位執法者,本書大概屬於短篇,所以沒有真的明說這職位是什麼東東,不過這大概就是社會的執法人員,專門鋤奸殺惡之類的部門。卻又不是警察。

然後因為某個背後更大咔的計謀,他們相遇大戰一二三四五場。然後最後故事沒完結......我還第一次看番外篇還有續集的。

讓人最興奮的是最後沼澤的出現,他在這個年代被稱為“鐵眼”,也蠻貼切的啊。反正我一看就知道是誰了。伏筆啊~作者又打算幹什麼了為什麼沼澤還活著!

現在又該期待下一部了。我準備好了啊,趕快出版吧!! *敲碗敲碗 (≧▽≦)

語錄:

  1. 要動腦前總得先有腦啊。
  2. 有錢人會制定自己的規則,強迫我們依照他們的規則生活,但是我們的法律是人類的法律。
  3. 有時候,成就跟認知是獨立運作的兩件事。有時候,成就可以改變認知。
  4. 揮下鎚子之後,要改變目標已經太難,但還來得及抬頭挺胸。
  5. 太多人把容易受驚跟懦弱畫上等號了。

Talk to yourself.18 - granted


A tag team mode, all about cooperation. :) Effective methods? Mmmmmm Just following instructions.

Another meetings week, meeting events never die. I even have 230pm to 7pm meeting from internal to external - 4.5hours. For all over the same topics on D-Team's 20 items. Well. 4.5 productive hours spent in this way..no one's fault, all about arrangement and I'm granted to sit in and listen.

New projects handled this week - GM & B2C. On board with a jump ship method. Mission code #3 lower exposure, not success still. Well, weird role.

#跟傻佩晶聊天 之fi li feh leh
Please just study hard. LOL

Last Friday I've been thinking a lot of things in bus when I'm on my way to office, and the moment I notice, the bus is stopping on the station which I should alight, but NO ONE PRESSED BELL! I can hardly press and luckily the bus driver did trying to stop because normally a lot of passengers alight here, but weird why this day they don't. End up only me rush down from the bus. ARG. so paiseh. I can sensed the girl sitting beside me bear me when I rushing to leave my seat, I'm sorry.


一個人的城市,也沒有那麼遭吧。應該。

Then I saw this from FB. I got level 3 😂

I got a stress dream from nap today. Dream of been abandoned, to achieve what we want. I bike all the way here and there, to hit the missions and find what I should found, 0 cruel with list of items to achieve. End up I got stuck at a train transit. And dream ended. wth dream is this, I don't even remember what I'm looking for, but its very stress and tiring, the whole dream is keep cycling inside an under path here and there.....my weekend nap...

Urgh, crawling for book <金翅雀 The goldfinch>, weird why this book is not selling in both cite.my & Popular Malaysia. And selling at S$41.71 from Kino SG, RM106.87 from Kino Msia, WHY THE HELL SO EXPENSIVE! Never mind, wait the chance, 时机未到。Go for <迷雾之子番外篇> first.

【心得】《決戰王妃5:為愛加冕》 大結局呀

決戰王妃5:為愛加冕 綺拉.凱斯
決戰王妃系列大結局!
說大結局呀,搞不好哪天又出了個續集,現在我都不敢接受終部曲這個詞了。其實這系列從來到公主這一代就開始有點勉強,如果作者停在第三本的話,就是完美的句點了。

剛剛好的時間,要剛剛好的點。只要貪心一點點,裂縫出現後,就回不去了。

整個故事有點拖泥帶水,其實根本就預料到競選會失敗,就那個感覺。因為女主根本就沒對候選人有情愫啊!雖然最後那個人我確實有點驚訝,沒預料到的(你根本沒嘗試預料!) 後半部故事反而還比較有意思,但是太急促了,好可惜啊。難道作者這本書不能寫超過300頁的嗎。

聽說還有一本番外篇。書要看到最後啊 好不好 😏


語錄:

  1. 「這不是話,這是蒲公英啦。」「我知道。有人覺得是種子,有人覺得是花。見仁見智囉。」
  2. 我們都向前奔向未來,卻不保證從此過著幸福快樂的日子。無論如何,只要我們努力向前奔跑就有意義了,不是嗎?
  3. 好像只有用吼的,才能表現出他們有多堅定。
  4. 愛情即是命中注定,也需要細心計劃;愛情可以無限美好,也可以是場大災難。


完。

Talk to yourself.17 - Don't touch my timeline


#ImProgrammer
Everyone got a bad habit - like to add own instructions on top others instructions. Like I gave a timeline on 31st May, and the opposite will want to add notes "live on 1st June, test from 25th May". It's annoying and show that they do not respect my arrangement. But it's ok, experience gain, next time I can have 5 more working days delay due to "testing" stage required.

Mission code #3 - low exposure, doing well, but only for ePortal. LOL. Since this mission code is out, I got a weird question spinning in my head this whole week. Shit, since when I got to show face for GO,FFDX,Reporting, and WHY. This role is getting weird. Okay, mission code #3 continue again for another week, gambateh!


#MyLifeAhh
一則壞消息,也沒有那麼難消化吧。

When something happen, should we do the necessary or do the correct one. The answer I got, is do the correct one. #我又长大了

Headache hit again over the weekend and why on Sunday, so damn pain.


Guitar
Next class got to propose a new song. Maybe, a Chinese song that used to be meaningful for me or us. Hopefully the song will not kena reject as my teacher seems prefer an English song. #DontCareLiao
