1) Look for a star


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grf5LIFJ0xI&feature=related

When life doesn’t seem worth the living/ 当生命看来不太值得活下去
and you don’t really care who you are/ 而你并不关心自己是谁
when you feel there is no one beside you/ 当你感觉没人在你身边
LOOK FOR A STAR / 找一颗星吧
when you know you’re alone and so lonely/ 当你感觉孤单与寂寞时
and your friends have traveled a far / 而你的朋友远离他乡
there is someone waiting to guide you/ 有一个人正等着指引你
LOOK FOR A STAR/ 找一颗星吧
for every one has a lucky star/ 因为每一个人有一颗幸运星
that shines in the sky up above/ 高高在天上闪耀着
if  you wish on your lucky star/ 假如你向你的幸运星许愿
you’re sure to find someone to love/ 你将找到爱你的人
a rich man, a poor man, a beggar/富人,穷人,乞丐
no matter who ever you are/ 无论你是谁
there’s friend who’s waiting to guide you/ 有位朋友正等着指引你
LOOK FOR A STAR/ 找一颗星吧
This is the theme song of “Circus of Horrors”, it captures the bright side of human being, not to give up even though your friends are away.
There must be a star waiting to guide you !
这首是”马戏魔鬼”的主题曲,描写当人生低潮,朋友离你而去的时候,也不言弃,不该放弃的精神。
每一个人应该去寻找他生命中的星星!

4) Lunar calendar seventh month / 农历七月(2)


这位灵媒的店后面有一条后巷,那是她上下班必经之地。一个农历七月的破晓之前,天空正微微发白,她跟往常一样要经过那条后巷绕道才从大门进入。

那天,还有几个行人也象她一样走捷径绕道去别的地方。其中一个人迎面走来是一个二十来岁的女人,一身白衣连身裙,留着一头长发齐肩,走起路来头低低,脸部黯然无光,所以灵媒没有看清楚她的样子。直到她跟灵媒擦身而过,灵媒感觉心里毛毛的才直觉有点不妥,就把头转一转用眼角瞄一下那女人。

这才发现那女人脚不着地,离地3寸左右在‘飘移’着。灵媒还没还过神来,那女人已经用90度的转角方式,在街口转角处象硬纸皮般飘向另一头!

灵媒吓得三步拼做两步,急急打开店门,冲进店里倒了杯茶给自己压压惊。

休息一会儿,太阳上来了,感觉心也定了下来。她就拿起报纸准备翻一翻新闻,一打开报纸,一则头条新闻进入眼帘:“某某路昨晚半夜发生一起致命车祸,一名年轻女子当场丧命,据说死者是在下班途中遇害,但肇事者已畏罪逃离现场,警方呼吁公众如有线索,请提供给警方协助调查。。。。。”

灵媒放下报纸,心里多了一分感叹;黄泉路上又多了一个怨魂,这些怨魂如果没有得到超度,它们会在出事的地点不断地寻找,不断地徘徊,并以90度的转角方式,在街口转角处象硬纸皮般飘向另一头。

3) Lunar calendar seventh month / 农历七月(1)


 

一位灵媒告诉我,华人农历七月地府门大开,到处都有孤魂游荡,这种事情是千真万确,不是人们危言耸听造假吓人的。

她告诉我她的经历,有一年正好是农历七月的一天;那一天生意特别好(可能是农历七月的缘故),所以当她结束一天的工作已经是傍晚6点半了,对于一班上班族或开店做生意的人来说,这种时间似乎太早,但对她来说五点过后就不替人看相看命了;一来是她的小店在一间庙正殿的后院,庙五点就关门,她的店营业时间也必须跟着庙的规矩走,二来傍晚时分对一个灵媒来讲是非常敏感的时刻,因为他们接触那一类灵异的东西随着太阳西斜也相对的提高。

但她那天来看她的人也实在太多了,她也不好意思拒绝顾客,因此她跟庙祝通融一下,让庙旁的一道小门开着,她就由这一扇小门回去­,钥匙她先保管一晚,宾主这么多年这种事情当然是小事一桩。

好了,不知不觉她为最后一个‘病人’诊断完‘病情’,她也准备‘下班’了!因为6点半实在是太迟了!

当她站起来关上椅子后面的玻璃窗正准备离开,她看见玻璃窗外不远处的后巷迷朦一片,那是农历七月大家烧金纸造成的,这种事见怪不怪。但怪的是烟雾中有一个很矮且驼背的男人,背影看来有五十来岁,站在一座天公香炉前仰头望着神台。天公香炉通常安在离地五尺的墙上,以这个男人的高度来看,他因该是想上香有点困难,所以站在那儿不知怎么办才好。灵媒看在眼里正想办法帮他,突然间,这男人在烟雾中浮了起来!

隐隐约约男人的脚离地1尺,那双脚在那儿荡着荡着,他正仰着头慢慢吸着香上发出的一缕缕的烟。。。。。。

灵媒见到这一幕,急忙关上窗,锁上店门,疾步穿过庙的正殿走向那道小门。当她锁上门,走出室外,整个人的心才安定下来;原因是当她穿过正殿,感觉有无数对眼睛在阴暗的角落注视着她。

现在太阳快要下山了,如果再不赶快回家,她会在街上碰到更多这一类东西!

2) One sentence a day


One sentence a day  

A new law has been introduced, and it restricts everyone to only speaking one sentence a day.

The rising level of noise pollution in the country has brought about this, in addition to the people’s habit of spending so much time on idle chitchat that their ability to engage in deep and meaningful contemplation of serious issues, or to express themselves fully by writing has been badly affected.

One solution to this is to encourage the citizens to write and reflect more on different issues.

Another solution could be, of course to only allow each person to speak just one sentence a day.

If such a law is indeed established, how will the world become, as a result? Will the result of such a law be that our world becomes more peaceful, with the level of noise pollution lowered greatly and our ears, having been assaulted by so much noise for so long, finally are able to enjoy peaceful silence?

Or will the result just be the opposite?

Among those most affected by such law would undoubtedly be people who truly enjoy talking and engaging in conversations, and also those who depend on their gift of the gab for a living. However, the law is the law, after all, and life has to go on.

If such a law is introduced, one will still be able to hear sounds when the television set is turn on. Other than music, different voices will be heard, one sentence at a time. And because every person is restricted to only one sentence a day, the person shown on TV programmed has to change every sentence in the script, with the character disappearing and appearing over and over again.

And if there happens to be a severe lack of people available, even the cleaners working at the TV station could be asked to make appearance on TV.

With a law like that, cities will become more peaceful, as everyone will be writing on a slips of paper in an effort to communicate with each other.

When shopping, customers will have to write their queries down on a piece of paper to show the shopkeeper, who in turn will be required to have a stack of paper nearby to answer questions.

If this happens, one will then see many people on the street carrying and showing each other numerous pieces of paper.

“A plate of chicken rice, please!” One slip would say.

“How much is that?” Another would ask.

Countless pieces of paper would be found everywhere.

But let’s not forget the art of sign language. In a world where everybody is only allowed to speak one sentence a day, mute people will be no longer be considered as disadvantaged. Instead, they will be seen as the leaders of the new age, and one would then see signboards in Braille everywhere, and sign language will become the popular form of communication everywhere, with even illegal vendors on the streets having to introduce themselves with those slips.

And of course, things would improve greatly for those with speech disabilities! For those who shutter, life would become easier!

People who can develop their language skills are also at an advantage! They can take advantage of the one-sentence limit to try and see if they can extend that sentence for as long as possible. Words like although, hence, however, even, because, thus, lastly, and others will all be used more often as people try to make maximum use of that one sentence allowed to them. However, they will need to practice saying such long sentences with just one breath.

There will be people who suffer because of this law too, such as couples in love who cannot whisper sweet nothings to each other as much as they like.

In the long run, the amount of robberies committed will also increase! Under the new law, we will not hear “Help! Thief! Thief!” yelled by an unfortunate victim anymore. Instead, we will see a group of people chasing the thief, holding a placard over their heads that has “Help! Thief!” written on it.

What a world that will be! The people unsatisfied and unhappy, they begins a silent protest in the streets, which will become so crowded that even water will not be able to flow down the streets! Everyone will be holding large signs above their heads, signs that scream, “We want to talk! ”, “We want to express our view! ”, we’d rather die than speak one sentence a day!”

This silent protest will, of course, eventually come to the government’s attention.

And because the government officials are also restricted to speak one sentence each day, slips of paper will also be passed around fervently at government meetings. In the end, because of this unbearable situation and its disastrous consequences, the “One sentence a day.” Will have to be abolished!

Imagine the joy that will spread all over the country at the cancellation of the “One sentence a day” law. You will be able to both see and hear everybody’s joy, on his faces and in their voices. They will be so happy that they will ask after each other, and after each other’s family members!

No one will mourn the passing of the “One sentence a day” law.

That day will deserve a record of its own in the Guinness Book of World Records, as “The day when the Happiness Levels of Everyone was at an all-time high! ”
