I measure every grief I meet
With analytic eyes;
I wonder if it weighs like mine,
Or has an easier size.
I wonder if they bore it long,
Or did it just begin?
I could not tell the date of mine,
It feels so old a pain.
I wonder if it hurts to live,
And if they have to try,
And whether, could they choose between,
They would not rather die.
I wonder if when years have piled--
Some thousands--on the cause
Of early hurt, if such a lapse
Could give them any pause;
Or would they go on aching still
Through centuries above,
Enlightened to a larger pain
By contrast with the love.

I made this yesterday and it was really yummy, reminds me of my mum when she made this she has to be sure my eldest sis is not at home coz she absolutely hates the preserved vegetables(冬菜)!!haha!!
This recipe portion is probably good for 4 person :)
Anyway enjoy this with an extra bowl of steam rice yummmmmy!!
1. 250 grams minced lean pork 2. 2 chinese table spoon of preserved vegetable (冬菜) 3. 1 teaspoon corn flour 4. 1 table spoon sesame oil 5. 2 table spoon soy sauce 6. dash of pepper 7. ½ teaspoon sugar 8. 1 table spoon of chinese wine 9. 2 gloves of chopped garlic 10. 50ml water or less depends on own preference on consistency
1. Wash the preserved vegetables. 2. Ready minced pork, and put it in a mixing bowl. 3. Add in the chopped preserved vegetables. You may chop it finely or just loosely if you want it with more crunchiness , and mixed well into the pork. 4. Mixed in the corn flour, soya sauce, sesame oil, pepper, sugar, garlic, chinese wine, and water according to preference. Mixed well with a spoon. 5. Take a steaming plate, drip some oil and water on the base so the pork will not stick to it. Spread the pork mixture evenly flat on the plate. 6. Steam over high heat for 10 mins. (assuming the thickness of the spread is about 1-2 cm thick, if its thicker, add another 3-5 mins) Alternatively steam over cooking rice. 7. Serve hot with steamed rice!!!
I just read this on the net and thought it might come in handy.
I always believe in a little power nap in the afternoon but never find it to be appropriate at work.
but it seems to be more acceptable now than ever...but i find people napping at their desk to be really gross though.
So here's the do and don'ts of power napping at work.. cheers enjoy!!
Do'S And Don'Ts Of Dozing Napping at work has become acceptable at some companies. Yet pulling off a "productivity nap" at the office isn't easy. Here are suggestions from sleep scientist Dr. Sara Mednick, author of Take a Nap! Change Your Life.
1. Make time and space
Twenty to 30 minutes is all you need to reap the rewards of midday slumber. The best time is the early afternoon when your body is tired -- so consider reserving the second half of your lunch break for shut-eye. If your employer doesn't have a nap room, a yoga mat beats a bathroom stall, though the most comfortable option may be a parked car.
2. Set the proper conditions
In the dark our brains produce more of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin, so close the blinds, turn off the lights, and consider using a sleeping mask. Keep the temperature on the warmer side. If you must nap sitting up, use a travel pillow to avoid the dreaded "nap nod." And don't forget to turn off your cell phone.
3. Careful with the chemicals
Avoid caffeine for a few hours before a nap. The same goes for nicotine, diet pills, and antidepressants. Although alcohol makes it easier to nod off during the day, it interferes with sleep and should also be avoided. Refined sugars and carbs may keep you up, but meat, dairy, and some nuts have tryptophan, which our bodies break down into melatonin

Don't Wait for a reward The world is full of people dilligently producing in some quiet corner. They will not be promoted! Demostrate you can do higher-level work.
Prepare a colleague to take over your Job Companies like to hire from the Outside, because promoting from within creates two staffing changes instead of one. Groom a successor
Don't make yourself indispensable Contrary to conventional wisdom, its unwise to perform in such a way that your bosses feel you must keep doing your current job.
Timing is as important as Talent If you can make yourself available for a big job at an opportune moment, you will have an advantage over others who seek the same assignment.
Gather information about your company's plans. Tap all your internal company channels to learn about opportunities for advancement. Example: If you know there will be a foreign office opening in six months, you can position yourself for the job.
Praise your boss to senior management. Never go over your boss's head, except in the form of praise. Tell senior managers, how much you and your supervisor learned and accomplished at that trade show, seminar...
Don't turn down offers. Early in your careers, if you company offers you a new position, take it. There is an unwritten rule that if you turn down a promotion once, you will not get another offer.
Be Willing to move. Happily ensconced in where you are? Be prepared to move to *Lower dusty Nowhere*. You can't move up inside an organisation if you are not willing to relocate.
Attach youself to a superstar. Superstar can feed plum assignments to their proteges and give them visibility and access.
Teach yourself new skills Anticipate your company's needs and prepare yourself by learning new tricks. For instance, if you work in HR and you see layoffs coming, bone up n downsizing techniques.

I writing this in memory of my parents, my dad who passed since 1995 amazingly to me seems a little like yesterday and mother who god rest her soul went peacefully on 30 May 2009. So it seems that i am officially an orphan?!
It has come full circle, one year soon!
I started this post on the 16 June 2009, and completed this on 13th May 2010!
Complete, means after nearly a year i still do not have anything else to add to it and completing it just like the way i started it ! :)
Life is such! a year passed and you are older but never wiser and never having more to say than what you have already said.
