The happiest of men

Who is the happiest of men? 

He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though t'were his own.
Johann von Goethe (1749-1832) 
German Poet and Dramatist


Monday, April 25, 2016

Jim Rohn said, "Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment."

I like this quote as it reminded to work on goals diligently instead of thinking that talent is the best short cut to success!

Get things done

The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
--- Benjamin Jowett (1817 - 1893)


In working life and in family life, if you do not mind stepping back and let others who think they are contributing get the credits, you can get things done easily.

If credits is due, it will return to you after it travel the world in full circle.

At that time, the credits are endorsed beyond the current crowd...

So just get things done, let credits travel through those who claimed them and see how it goes...

趣味潮汕話 --- 最難學的字

Published on 2 Jan 2013
潮商衛視網攜手潮汕網絡紅人林笳老師推出《趣味潮汕話(精編版)》特輯,由林笳老師自­拍自演,共18集,每集用一種詼諧幽默的方式輕鬆教學,想學潮汕話的朋友不容錯過!

普通話中讀法單純的「一」,在潮汕話中卻因實際需要,演變為多種讀音及用途。本期節目­,林笳將趣味教學「一」在潮汕話中純正的讀法。




潮汕人才听得懂


"泽" (Ze g8) , (则) 是一的白读

"乙" (I g4) 是文读,其他河洛语像闽南语也是这样念.

"妖" (Yao 1) 其实是"幺", 

一省略不说,用头取代, 华语/国语/普通话/中国语都这样念,换句话说"一"的潮语念法既不难也不特别


其實二也差不多,如果潮州話書面寫出是與其他大多數語言一樣走拼音文字化,單單變音規則就可以把外國人當場搞死,難度絕對比號稱最難學的斯拉夫眾語言和阿拉伯語難得多。 :-D不過,也慶幸正因為如此,潮州話可以成為海外潮州人之間身份認同的唯一密碼。

梁紹鴻:功夫六十年

【一席YiXi】梁紹鴻:功夫六十年

不善言辭的梁紹鴻,他的每一句都是真實的,是那些真正把握功夫的人   




梁绍鸿(Duncan Leung , Leung Shiu Hung),1942年6月11日出生于香港,他13岁的时候(1955年)被好友李小龙介绍至叶问门下,成为叶问第一个私家授课门徒,请叶问到家授课达四、五年之久,完成了叶问系咏春拳全部课程。

梁紹鴻1942年出生於香港,13歲由好友李小龍介紹到葉問門下,成為授課門徒。1974年移居美國紐約,在當地建立自己的拳館。談起已逝去多年的少年好友李小龍,他說,李小龍比他大兩歲,喜歡學功夫喜歡約會女孩子,之前李小龍學習功夫疏於練習,後來因為被人家打了兩次,就下苦功夫練習。尤其跟葉問學習後,進步很快,所以他也拜葉問為師。
作為葉問的弟子,梁紹鴻也因此成為王家衛電影「一代宗師」中梁朝偉的詠春拳師傅,他說,當時王家衛找他,讓他教梁朝偉功夫。最初他表示自己雖然認識很多電影圈的人,但是對電影沒興趣。不過王家衛說要動真格的學,他就前後教了梁朝偉兩年。他表示梁朝偉非常有天分,比李小龍聰明且做事低調,雖然不可能像行內人那麼搏命練習,但其優勝之處在於沒有任何功夫枷鎖和陋習,對其訓練講究穩紮穩打,循序漸進,從基本動作開始兼力量訓練最後進行實戰對抗。
說起真實的葉問,梁紹鴻說,電影中的葉問和現實裡的葉問有很大出入,當年葉問做師傅的時候已是人生失意期,沒有正當工作,只能靠教功夫才能養活老婆孩子。武館教十幾個學生,每個學生收幾塊錢,有時還沒有學生。
不過葉問很少說自己的事,但教功夫很有一套,告訴學生要學功夫就去打吧,不打怎麼知道行不行。不去打就不知道自己的功夫深淺。這種學習方式很適合梁紹鴻,他說,他從小不喜歡讀書,學歷不過小學畢業。他就喜歡打架,每天去醫院都是家常便飯,打架打多了就自然曉得功夫的奧妙。
現在70多歲的梁紹鴻領悟到功夫其實就是一種哲學,他說,作為人類,身體是有極限的,會老會病會有很多身體無法做到的事情,但智慧沒有極限。學習功夫不是單純模仿老師的一招一式,而是要學會自我創新和挑戰老師,在實戰中體會功夫各種力道的槓桿原理,以小勝大,以弱勝強。
梁紹鴻原本住在維吉尼亞州,但因治病要長期在加州停留,因此萌生在此地傳授功夫的想法。他說,如今學功夫的人越來越少,因為沒有時間堅持練習,打架也不再是肉搏而是使用武器,他只想在生命結束前,把自己對功夫的理解和經驗傳承下去。
在梁紹鴻20日授課現場匯集男女老幼,各個族裔。他不僅傳授詠春理論,還現場和學生演繹過招。他說,詠春拳首先要注意不是拼狠,而是不要被對方打到,不要受傷,之後要學習的才是要如何打別人,功夫的關鍵不是防守而是進攻。

徐冰:我對當代藝術的理解




你是否有過如下經歷?購買了一幅名畫卻無從知曉它的價值,站在一件藝術品面前卻不知從­何種角度欣賞它的美。貌似與藝術相距很近,其實相隔甚遠。為何藝術家掃地就是行為藝術­,價值連城,清潔工掃地就不具備藝術價值?究竟是什麼讓藝術如此神秘,在你神往之時又­顯得若即若離?徐冰老師將揭開當代藝術的神秘面紗,帶你一窺究竟,謎底就蘊藏在他的獨­到見解中。(視頻由優米視頻提供)

"一切有为法,如梦幻泡影,如露亦如电,应作如是观。"这是我看­过当代艺术家作品之后的反应。之后,在与聊天时也得到了印证,他说当代艺术作品如禅语­,只能意会不能言传。初见,是在798尤伦斯当代艺术馆开馆前几天,他的作品《天书》­被艺术馆邀请参加""当代艺术展,我有幸看到了他庞大的《天书》­作品的安装。最推崇的是他的三个作品《天书》、《新英文书法》和《地书》。《天书》是­他的成名大作,全世界有关学术论文就70多篇。"新英文书法"被­有的国家编成教材内容,还在美国被当作营业招牌使用。《地书》是他2007年的新作品­,刚刚在美国展出,据说中国的展出会在2008年5月份。认为好的当代艺术作品应该具­有原创性,并能够体现这个时代的特色。

看过他的作品,了解过他的人,愈发明白他为何能够成为享誉世界的当代艺术家。

《家》传唱十几年 木子:没收半分版权费

他说:“我们当时跟国家艺术理事会签约时,他们跟我们说《家》是对国家的贡献,以后没有任何版权费。我觉得无所谓,新加坡人总是要为国做一点事,我对国家没多少贡献,能够作一首歌挺好的,呵呵。”

此外,他也自爆当年创作《家》的一些趣事,他说听了李迪文的demo后,简直不敢相信那首“柔弱”的歌是国庆日主题曲:“以前的国庆歌曲都是雄赳赳气昂昂的,李迪文给我的《家》却抒情得不得了,我甚至还打电话给歌曲制作人许环良,向他确定。他说国家艺术理事会每年都花不少钱来创作国庆歌曲,但是歌只红一个月,过后就没人唱。他们希望有一首歌能上电台《龙虎榜》,要8月以外也有人传唱。”

果然《家》推出后,成为第一首登上《龙虎榜》榜首的国庆日主题歌。木子笑言:“我是惊讶的,因为国庆日那么庄严肃穆,振奋人心的歌很重要,但没有想到温柔婉约也是一个动人力量,而且可以持续十几年,哈哈……” - See more at: http://www.zaobao.com.sg/culture/entertainment/music/story20151210-558243#sthash.F1i9QiEk.dpuf

Kit Chan 陈洁仪 - 家

NDP 1998 Theme Song: Home Singapore

 


Home
Music and Lyrics: Dick Lee


Whenever I am feeling low
I look around me and I know
There's a place that will stay within me
Wherever I may choose to go
I will always recall the city
Know every street and shore
Sail down the river which brings us life
Winding through my Singapore
Chorus:
This is home truly, where I know I must be
Where my dreams wait for me, where that river always flows
This is home surely, as my senses tell me
This is where I won't be alone, for this is where I know it's home
When there are troubles to go through
We'll find a way to start anew
There is comfort in the knowledge
That home's about its people too
So we'll build our dreams together
Just like we've done before
Just like the river which brings us life
There'll always be Singapore
( Repeat Chorus )
For this is where I know it's home
For this is where I know I'm home


Jia

沿着生命河流向前航, 就能登陆理想

Chorus:

只要点燃希望, 梦就会自由飞翔

我的家, 给我, 一双坚定翅膀
wo de jia, gei wo, yi shuang jian ding chi bang
我的梦, 不论在何方, 一生的爱唯有家

再也不会感到彷徨, 不会再失意回头望
zai ye bu hui gan dao pang huang, bu hui zai shi yi hui tou wang
我要用心中一点烛光, 燃放千万户辉煌
wo yao yong xin zhong yi dian zhu guang, ran fang qian wan hu hui huang
要让繁华的城市更灿烂, 世界和平共享
yao rang fan hua de cheng shi geng can lan, shi jie he ping gong xiang
全凭生命河流来导航, 一起登陆理想
quan ping sheng ming he liu lai dao hang, yi qi deng lu li xiang
( Repeat Chorus )
