Saved By A Japanese 捨身救人

20 Chinese trainees saved by their Japanese boss' brother
during the recent tsunami.
日本老板之弟捨身救20華人1個冇少。

大地震時正在日本女川町一家水產公司實習的20名中國女工,近日返國後對中央電視台憶述遇險經過,指海嘯到來時,是公司老闆的弟弟佐藤充救了她們,但他自己最後卻被海嘯吞沒。佐藤充捨身救中國人的故事,成為內地媒體近­日熱門話題。

Homesick 懷鄉

While talking with my friend on phone, he told me that he was worrying about Taiwan our motherland. I post two Youtube music videos to relieve our homesickness.

與朋友電話中聊天, 他說很擔心台灣的前途。所以我從優凸下載二支故鄉之歌, 略解這些遊子們難解的鄉思愁。

咱的故鄉台灣 OUR HOMELAND TAIWAN
詞:白蕊 曲:林福裕
video

Lyric 歌詞:
咱的故鄉 美麗的島嶼台灣 山綠水青 花蕊四季齊開
Our homeland, beautiful island Taiwan,
Mountain green with water clear,
All flowers blossom for whole season round.
善良的百姓 認真打拼做工 為著光明前途暝日奮鬥
Industrious Taiwanese, doing their jobs endlessly,
For the sake of their future working day and night.
願上帝賜福阮所愛的故鄉台灣 伊是阮心內永遠的母親
May God bless our beloved homeland Taiwan,
To whom is our mother in our heart forever.
無論離開外呢遠﹖無論經過外呢久﹖
No matter how far away you are,
No matter how long you have gone through,
一生一世永遠會思念妳 咱的故鄉台灣
We will think of you the whole life through till eternity,
Our homeland Taiwan!

台灣是咱兜 Taiwan-Our Homeland
詞: 曾貴海 曲: 陳武雄
指揮: 翁佳芬 伴奏: 許溎芳
演出: 高雄室內合唱團+紅木屐合唱團
2008/2/28 高雄市文化中心至德堂
video

Lyric 歌詞:
台灣是咱兜
咱兜滯佇大海中 島嶼四邊是海湧
無暝無日在唱歌 台灣唱出伊的歌
一湧接一湧 前湧消失 後湧來
雖然坎坷無底驚 爬上土地變作希望的笑聲
咱兜滯佇大海中 島嶼四邊是海湧
無暝無日在作夢 台灣唱出伊的夢
一湧接一湧 台灣永遠唱出伊的歌
前湧消失 後湧來 台灣永遠唱出伊的夢

Too Much Salt 鹽多必失

誤信謠言瘋搶鹽 悔不當初爭退鹽

令人涕笑的中國人
憂日核爆感染核塵
爭先恐後搶購碘鹽
謠傳澄清起退鹽潮

video
(Youtube Video)
﹝中天新聞﹞大陸民眾擔心日本核電廠輻射外洩掀起一股搶鹽潮,導致很多地方的鹽都斷貨,大陸官方立即出面闢謠來抑制搶鹽,當初搶鹽的民眾悔不當初,現在又想退回買貴的鹽,因而又掀起一股「退鹽潮」。

Wind Damage 強風過後

Last night at around 6:15PM, television station reported a tornado and strong wind warning in our area. After warning was lifted, I found these damages.

昨夜6點15分左右, 電視台播出龍捲風和強風路過本地區的警告。解除後,我看到這兩處損壞。

Salt & Radiation 核鹽

日本核災, 中國人搶鹽成國際笑料
華爾街日報以擔心輻射中國人搶購食鹽為題報導內地的盲目搶購碘鹽事件。
中港澳臺兩岸的盲目搶購食鹽潮, 國際傳媒挖苦、日本線民嘲諷。
不少日本網客對中國人盲搶鹽一事表示驚訝及失望,有人直斥中國人「劣質」,更稱「跟輻射相比,中國人還是應該擔心自家農藥中毒吧!」

有趣的對聯
上聯:日本是大核民族
下聯:中國是鹽荒子孫
橫批:有碘意思

Ecstasy? 迷魂藥?

Referring to post dated March 10, 2011 迷魂藥 Ecstasy,
the report was untrue. It's only a hoax.
Please be careful while you travel in China.

廣州市公安局召開新聞發布會,澄清“迷魂藥”事件

實驗證明,樣品不會引起意識消失、"麻醉”,廣東藥學院藥理係主任譚毓治教授透過錄像說了此番話,以一個當事人的身份為 坊間流傳半年多的“迷魂藥”事件蓋棺定論!昨日(14日)下午,廣州市公安局召開新聞發布會,就去年某媒體所作的關于所謂“迷魂藥”的係列報道,以及其他 一些媒體的紛紛轉載,作出澄清。警方新聞發言人宣布,經過警方嚴肅認真的調查,證實所謂“迷魂藥”純屬子虛烏有。迄今為止,在所謂因被“迷魂”而受害的個 別報案中,根據公安部門的調查,尚沒有一例得到證實。

兩則報導真假請自己判斷。不過, 無風不起浪, 還是小心爲妙!

"The Last Rose Of Summer"
Thomas Moore (1779–1852)

'Tis the last rose of summer left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions are faded and gone;
No flower of her kindred, no rosebud is nigh.
To reflect back her blushes and give sigh for sigh.

I'll not leave thee, thou lone one, to pine on the stem;
Since the lovely are sleeping, go sleep thou with them.
Thus kindly I scatter thy leaves o'er the bed,
Where thy mates of the garden lie scentless and dead.

So soon may I follow when friendships decay,
And from love's shining circle the gems drop away.
When true hearts lie withered and fond ones are flown.
Oh who would inhabit this bleak world alone?
This bleak world alone.

Ecstasy 迷魂藥

Warning from The Ministry of Public Security Office of People's Republic of China:
If someone approaches you and wants you to smell something while you are traveling in China, be careful not to do it. It's a kind of Ecstasy. It will make you faint, and you will be robbed or even killed.

緊急通知 :
若是有人在路上接近你,向你推銷海味乾貨大蒜等產品,又建議你聞一下味的話或者請你品嘗時一定要注意了"這不是蒜!那是乙醚蒜!"一種迷藥類的東西,當你聞到它,你就會昏,然後他們就會拿走你的皮夾、你身上所有的值錢物品,請務必轉告所有的親友,現在成都、綿陽、江油、九環線、深圳公明、松崗、坪地、龍崗、東莞一帶等幾個地方已開始出現。
大家小心!
