Her Life in Picture

On her funeral, her families and friends put together a slide show of her life in pictures, kinda like the ones played at those weddings???

It’d started out with her as an infant, her first step, her first word, so many firsts, to be recalled.  Her life had been a run-on, like the sentence?  She just, kept going, going, going, ‘til she’s finally gone, and, the story of her life, it’d played on, like a projector that’s broken, it just, looped around, endlessly, guess that, would be how her life was, huh?

Her life in pictures, there were ups, and downs, and, a whole lotta in-betweens, and, none of that mattered now, she’s gone, and, she’d managed to change so many lives, and, brightened up people’s lives with her mere presence, and, although she was real young when she’d passed away, nobody can disagree, that in her short life, she’d made the most of her time here.

Her life in pictures, but how?  How can someone’s life, be reduced to a few pictures?  After all, a person is changing, growing, every single day, and, there’s NO way possible, that anybody can manage to capture every single breath the someone takes………

A Matter of Last Names…

Who the HELL says, that after we women marry, we MUST take your last names?  And, why don’t you ALL, start taking OUR last names instead?  I mean, it’s only fair, right, as the “rituals” of a married woman taking HER husband’s last name had been happening since………how LONG now?

So, it’s time for a change!  This is still a SEXIST thing, making us women, subordinates to Y-O-U, and, by becoming your wives (1 @ a time), we’re NOT only signing on as ASS-WIPES, because let’s face it, all you losers are looking for when you find a significant other is a SURROGATE mommy who can BREAST feed you, who’s gonna kiss your boo-boos, and, where, is it written down (meaning in P-R-I-N-T!!!) that we MUST become the mothers of your children?  And, what about what WE want?  Because, you ladies DO realize, that after you’re wed, and had your babies, you’re basically done, right???  Uh, yeah!

Matter of last names, I won’t BE taking ANYBODY’s LAST names, because I will NEVER be married to NOBODY (and your point being???) but me.

Once again, this, is still a W-O-M-A-N talkin’, just so you all know!

Sex Shops are Digitizing, a Simple Man Was Scammed $400,000 N.T.

Those who fell are still just plain STUPID, no offense, but, feel free to take TONS, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The tricks of the skinning bars getting the simple men had been currently, duplicating online; a man who’d started playing online games after work, Tong fell prey to the claim of a female friend he’d met online that told him, “she’d taken money from the loan sharks, to pay for her mother’s all-too-high cancer treatment bills, and was now being forced to sell”, he’d handed $400,000N.T. to the woman, NO questions asked, hoping to get her out from the bad situation she claimed to be trapped by, until his mother reminded him, that, was when he realized, that he’d been scammed, he’d worked with the police, to help catch the woman, Hu who was picking up the cash.

The police said, the thirty-seven year-old man, Tong is an electrician and a plumber, after work, he’d gone home, and play online games, with little to NO social activities, he’d never had a girlfriend either; Tong’s mother found that her son started loaning his money to the “girlfriend” whom he’d only met just once, blamed his son, “You’re too dumb!”, the patrol officers tried to alleviate the tension between the mother and the son, said, “It should be best, that he finds a wife soon!”

The police found, that Tong had met a woman named, “Lulu” in an online game, and, “Lulu” called him up, almost every single day for the three months, and sent him a photograph of her, with very little clothes on; they’d started calling one another boy and girlfriend too, it’d made Tong fall deeply in love with her.

During the first half of last month, Lulu told him that her mother is hospitalized because of cancer, and that the fees for treatment was extremely high, for the sake of her mother, she’d taken out a $250,000N.T. loan from the loan sharks, and now, not only could she not manage to pay up what she’d borrowed, and she kept getting calls from the loan sharks on the interests that she’d owed them, and so she could only work in the bars, to pay up her debts, she’d begged him to loan her some money.

In order to help “Lulu” get out of the fire pits, Tong met up with her, and the very first time they’d met, he’d handed her $150,000N.T.; the scam ring sent Hu (age 37) as Lulu, to pick up the money, and Hu had even asked him, “Do you want to sleep with me?”

Then, Tong discovered, that Lulu is way too old, doesn’t look like she is in her twenties, and told her no, after they’d had lunch, they’d gone separate ways, but, afterwards, “Lulu” called Tong up again, said that she was once again, “pursued by the loan sharks”, and asked for a loan from him again.

This month, Lulu called Tong up once again, and Tong’s mother found out, and immediately notified the police.  Not long thereafter, Lulu called him up, to ask to borrow another $150,000N.T., Tong worked with the police, took along fake money to meet with her, and the police that were ambushing close by managed to arrest Hu who was there to pick up the money.  After Hu was arrested, she’d turned off her cell phone, but, Tong continued receiving calls from Lulu, that, was when he realized, that it was, all a scam.

Hu cried, said that after she divorced, she’d taken care of her two children all alone, and she still had to look after both her parents, but she had a prior in fraud, which makes it hard for her to get a job, that, was why she’d become a hooker for multiple years; a man Lee, who was her john, invited her to be a “driver”, and each time, she’d gotten $8,000N.T. for payment, which was four times MORE than she was making as a hooker, that, was why she’d put herself in harm’s way.  She said, that she didn’t make the calls, that before she went to pick up the cash, “Lee” had told her tricks, told her to claim to be “Lulu”, so she won’t bust her cover.

We still have this DUMB ass F-I-S-H who took the bait willingly, and, how many god DAMN times must this sort of SHIT happen, for all you LOSERS to know, that there’s NO such thing, and, because all you losers fall so god DAMN easily to those stupid S-O-B stories, that, is why women are used, as the bait!

A Man Tricked a Woman into Bed with Him, Took Her Bras Off, Said that He Was Giving Her a Massage

Uh, hello?  How DUMB can YOU ladies get anyways???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man with a masseur certification, Tseng set up shop to sell beds, and gave his customers free massages as a “follow-up” incentive; after a woman bought a bed, she’d returned to the sales mart for Tseng’s massages multiple times, Tseng used the excuse of needing to massage her body in the right way, took off her bras, and attempted to kiss her.  Tseng was sued for sexual harassment, he’d claimed, that he was bending over to pick up a piece of tissue and accidentally, grazed her breasts, but the D.A. didn’t believe his words, and still indicted him based off of laws against sexual harassments.

The D.A. investigated, that Tseng sold health beds, and he’d claimed to a female customer who bought a bed from him six months ago, that he can give her a free massage if she buys a bed from him; the female customer went for five to six massage sessions with him.

Last year in August, when the woman went again to get her free massages, Tseng told her that he wanted to teach her the right way to massage, wanted her to go with him to the small room next to the restrooms on the back of the place he’d worked, that it would be more intimate.  The woman didn’t question him, walked into the room, lay on the bed, and, Tseng took her bras off, and attempted to kiss her; the woman was so shocked she’d pushed him aside, and left the shop and called the police.

Tseng admitted to undoing the woman’s bras, claimed that it was to show her where the acupressure points were, and that the tissue he had fell from his hands, as he was bending down to pick it up, he’d accidentally touched her breasts, that it wasn’t intentional.

The D.A. believed, that in order to point to the right acupressure points, Tseng didn’t need to take the woman’s bras off or touch her body, and, the act of him getting down all of a sudden to pick up a dropped tissue is odd too, that his statements didn’t fit the norm; especially the female victim had described the process very clearly, she must’ve experienced it firsthand.  And, after the incident, Tseng had texted his apologies to her several times, and stated that he was willing to give her a bed for free, hoping that she wouldn’t take him to court, and from these, the D.A. believed that Tseng had broken the laws.

This just shows how you should NOT be putting yourselves in those positions, because there will always and forever BE losers like this one in the world, out of take advantage of us, and, this woman still fell prey to the cheap trick of getting some incentive, and hello, hello, hello?  There IS NO free lunch in the world!

The Dry-Erase Board Used for Reminders, on How We Interact with One Another

Translated…

A very long time ago, my friend dropped a white board off at my place, I’d hung it on the walls of my living room, can’t think of a use for it right away though.

Back then, my five-year-old son was very intrigued with the cartoon, “The Sea Thief King”, and, I’d often busied myself about the house that I’d forget to remind him to watch it.  Later on, I’d drawn a picture of a clock on the dry-erase board, with the minute-hand on the time when the cartoon starts, told my son, whenever he sees the time on the dry-erase board corresponds with the time on the clock on the wall, then, it’s time for his cartoon.  With the reminder of the white board, he’d never missed an episode again.

Back then, I’d thumbed across an issue that the whole family shouldn’t miss, but, there was no way to get everybody here at the same time to tell my family members, and fearing that I may have missed someone, I’d taped the newspaper to the dry-erase board, and wrote the words of warnings.  For instance, a while ago, the drinks were placed in bad plastic cups, I’d put down, “For the sakes of your own health, don’t drink the drinks anymore.”, with the newspaper clipping as the evidence, it’d become more persuasive, my children and my husband rarely buys those drinks now.

A while ago, my son was prepping for his examinations, I didn’t want to nag him to spend less time on Facebook, I’d written down on the dry-erase board, “My dear son, you must put everything into your examinations, and just focus, I hope you will perform well on it!”, not long thereafter, he saw the words on the board, he’d erased it, and I knew, that he’d received my care and concerns.

One evening, my husband placed a paper box in the kitchen, told me, “this box is for you to place the items that don’t need to be refrigerated and the larger fruits.” I told him, “I don’t want too much clutter on the floors, it’s hard, to wipe the floors clean.”  After he’d heard, he’d told me angrily, “I can’t do anything that fits you, can I?” I was stunned, quickly ran to the front of the white board, wrote the words, “the smaller matters the wife decide, the bigger issues, the husband’s calls”.  A little while later, my husband passed by the dry-erase board, I’d called out to him, “Honey, did you see what I wrote?”, he’d started laughing, “Yes, my beauty, I saw it!”

Thanks for the PR dry-erase board at my house, helping us all with communications, without the fuses, adding more fun!

And so, this, would be a great way to interact with your families, after all, you all don’t share the exact same schedules, and, writing it on a board once, beats having to repeat to your families over, over, over, AND over again, plus, NO one likes a N-A-G!

Angels Came Knocking

Kindness can still be found all over the places, translated…

Growing up, in a poverty-stricken time, I’d often gone to Sunday schools with the older kids from my village, memorized the verses from the Bible, sent the blessings………colored in the pictures with the angels on the cards, and, took the bus fares (we’d walked home and saved the money for the bus fares for candies and cookies), even the pastors’ and the fathers’ praises, and their warm hands on our heads.

Until when I’m older, I’d started taking up the rituals of Buddhism, compared to how Christianity and Catholicism had told us to be kind to others, Buddhism also taught me not to discriminate other religions, to show as much respect to it as I would my own religion, it’s the consciences that everybody should be keeping.  And so, if you ask me, are there angels, buddhas?  Without any hesitation, I’d tell you “YES!”

Reasons?  That’s quite simple, because I’d met them, so many of them too.

A Small Wish Became a Huge Torch

This angel I’m about to introduce to you, I’d always called him Mr. K, because I fear, that he wouldn’t want anybody else to know, that he has a set of wings.  But, because the times had changed, and, we may need to revise some of our outdated beliefs.  I believe, that “good deeds needed to be known”, we must incorporate this cycle of kindness in the atmosphere; we must use the love, the kindness of angels, to chase away the trickeries of the devils.

His last name is Sun, from Hualien, everybody called him by his English name: Calvin.

That year, because the program, “Light Up” I produced was lacking in funds again, and, although we’d set up a foundation, to get more funding from the outside world, but, the budgets from every single program, couldn’t allow us to slow down and take a breather, and, the speed to which we’d received the funding are usually, left, quickly behind by the expense department, after three months of continual “drought”, the younger employees from the company told me, that two years ago, when we were “hitting the walls”, wasn’t there a man from the internet, who’d stated that he was willing to sponsor the show?  I’d told the worker, later on, we were able to get enough funding, and we’d turned the man down, and now, we go back to ask him to donate, he may not be willing anymore.  The young person replied, how would you know if he’s willing if you don’t ask him?

After the meeting, I’d immediately gone “fishing” in the pond of e-mails, for that letter, and, finally, I’d found it.  And I’d written a letter, asking him for assistance, the man told me he was willing to put the money up for a season (13 episodes).  I’d read and reread the letter so many times, still in disbelief, because he had yet to discuss with me, the requirements of his donations yet, we’d had so many incentives to give to our donors, including putting the names on the end of the shows, the thirteen-volume DVDs……………he’d turned it all down, but, in the very end, he still couldn’t say no, and he’d only agreed to one thing: at the end of every episode, used his deceased mother’s name, to help Light Up carry on the work.

Later on, I’d learned, that since several decades ago, he’d been a faithful viewer of the show, he was moved by the stories we’d reported, there was a woman, Wu, from Hualien who, in order to save the young prostitutes, had a bounty on her head by the mafia, it’d caused her to have severe depression, and still, she wouldn’t loosen her grip on trying to help save those young underage prostitutes.  He said, back then, he’d made a promise to himself, if he had the chance, he will sponsor the program.  Not knowing, that his small promise to himself had caused a huge torch to be burning later on.

Three months’ funding was like the time it took, to drink up a cup of bubble tea, in an instant, seeing the bottom of the cup.  One day, he’d called us up, asked us if we managed to get the funding for the finishing of the show?  I’d told him, ashamed, not yet.  And he didn’t think that long, and added three more months of donations immediately.  I was stuttered, told him, that he was the CEO of a company, that he could use the name of his company to donate to the show.  He’d replied, that there were too many shareholders, and it would be hard, to convince them one by one, it’d be easier, if he’d done it on his own.  I’d kept him on the phones, told him, that “Light Up” is a show that focuses on gratitude, that we’d gotten such huge donations from him, and we’d never even seen him before, and never said thank you to him in person, I asked him if it was okay that I paid him a visit one day?  He was so quick, said yes right away, and immediately, we’d signed on a date, for him to come to the show.

The Lights of the Angels Continued Lighting the Way

The mornings in January in Taipei feels freezing, on the morning that we’d agreed upon, I’d waited by the side of the road, with this warmth that’s flowing from my heart.  I’d started guessing, that if he didn’t drive an imported car, it would be a high-end Japanese car, I’d looked left and right for awhile, then, an old car, covered in dirt pulled up, I’d not given it a second look.  But, a middle aged man came out, with a bag in hand, smiled, and walked toward me, without giving me time to react, he’d started, said that he’d checked me out, that I wasn’t some scam artist.  I’d asked him to come upstairs, he’d said no, said that we’re all very busy, there’s no need to entertain.  He’d handed me this handbag that he had, I was stunned, he’d explained, that it’s almost the New Year’s, that we must be short on cash, that, was all cash, that we should put it to good use right away………I don’t recall if I’d said thank you, but, I’d remembered, the moment I walked into the office, everybody in the office was screaming, as if a bomb just dropped on the building, then, they’d all nodded and agreed, that an angel did knock on my doors.

Because of his help, I’d decided to widen up Light Up even more, to not keep it in Taiwan, to help the field of vision of the Taiwanese people to be bigger, to see how big the world actually is.  We’d gone to Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, etc., etc., etc., through the program, we bore witness to how the Chinese from areas worked so hard, to maintain their culture; we’d also gone to Sichuan, to that place that’s been torn apart, to give warnings to those who are in the earthquake regions in Taiwan, that we must start respecting the land, to not overuse it; we’d also rushed to northeast Japan, and bore witness to the lessons that the earthquakes, the tsunamis taught to us……I will never forget, that night in Brunei, as I teared up, wrote my thank you letter to him, thanked him for helping us continue our good work, the very next day, he wrote back, said that he will do everything he could, to accompany “Light Up” longer still.

At the end of 2012, he’d notified me, that he will take some of the funding he’d given to our programming, and put it in a funding to help the younger generations to start their own business, seeing how hard it is, for the younger generations to find a job.  And, it took just a few months’ time, and I saw how the program he’d helped the younger generations start, become a growing agricultural industry quickly enough, and at the same time, those who were helped by him also hollered for their companions to join in, and slowly, it’d become their own successful realms too.

As we parted, he’d told me, that no matter how hard the road up ahead gets, I must not give up easily.  I’d promised him too, that I will NOT let him down.

He’d sponsored our program for two years and three months, gave us the motivations to keep going.  Am I not lucky enough, to meet such an angel with a heart and compassions?

I also hope, to pass on this blessing to you, hope, that you can watch out for someone else in need, to keep passing hope to those you meet up.  I truly believe, that one day, you too, will hear that knocking on your front doors, then, you’ll see, an angel, with wings, flapping, smiling at you…………

So, it’s with this man’s kindness, that the programming was continued, and, the programming was on bringing about hope to the rest of the community, and, this man who helped out saw that there’s a need, and so, he’d provided the funding for the program, that’s kindness all right!

Child, a Poem

And no, this is still NOT my picture, found it online…

Translated…

The winter’s sun managed to

Dry up the dampened verses taped on my back

And, all those who are behind me

All looked upon my back curiously

But, there was just, one child who’d just

Learned to read

Who’d started, reciting the verses on my back

This just shows how pure children are, because, as an adult, we’d been taught, not to do things, that it would be impolite, but, sometimes, it takes a child, to point out to us, the oddities of what’s happening, like that kid in The Emperor’s New Clothes, that pointed out that the emperor wasn’t wearing anything.
