The Miscalculation of Weight Gain that Will Help Me Fit into Those Dresses Perfectly

No matter how beautiful they all are, if you can’t fit into them, they’re still, scraps, and finally, you’d decided, to donate these dresses you loved for all these years, to someone who may find use for them, translated…

It’d made me feel, regrettable, as I’d opened up my wardrobe, saw those classic, elegant, good quality dresses.  As I was younger, I’d loved dressing up pretty, and enjoyed going to the couture shops to shop, once I got into a high-end couture store that was hosting a sale, and, these few dresses are from my carefully selecting from the racks.

I was only in my thirties, and these dresses seemed, a bit, old-fashioned in style, and they were, a bit, too large for me then, but I’d still told myself, that I got a good bargain for the cost, that maybe they would NOT fit me now, but, as I grew older, into midlife, and gained some weight, then, they will fit me, perfectly!

All the way home, I was, gloating, grinning ear to ear, at my gains, and, saw myself in those, dresses, how elegant I would, appear.  As I got home, I’d, gloated to my husband about what I did.

“Yeah, they look great, but how do you know for a FACT, that you will, gain weight later on in life?  And besides, maybe, you would change your taste in style by then?”, he’d lightly, poured, that glass of cold water, all over my, parade then.

And, he was half right.  I’d, waited until I’m past sixty, still not gained any extra weight, instead, due to the loss of my muscle mass, I kept at forty-five, forty-six kilograms prior to age fifty, and now, I’m, defending forty-two.  And, although, these dresses still won’t my taste contest, but they’d, drifted, farther, farther, and farther away from where I am now!

Back then I thought I was, “preparing for my future”, and now, it’d become, a “waste of resources”.  Gazing upon those few dresses that I’d kept for more than thirty years, although they still appeared, brand new, but the unchanged fact was, “I can’t wear them”, and there’s nobody I can give them to; I’d made my mind up, I shall, donate them tomorrow then!

And, it’d been told, that “dreams are what keep us alive”, and, yet, a lot of things, they don’t go, as we, planned.  Year after year, I’d often imagined, “one day, I shall, put these, beautiful dresses on me”, I’d dreamed this dream for more than thirty years, and, although, the dreamer still, woke up, but, these more than 10,000 days of dreaming on, I suppose, it was, worth what these, dresses had, cost!

And so, this, is how something you thought that were, too pretty to lose, that you’d kept forever (literally!), still end up as, useless, because you hadn’t gained the weight that you thought you would gain in midlife, and so now, you let these items go, but the images of you, fitting perfectly in those, dresses you loved so very much, shall stay forever fresh, in your, mind.

The Air, My Friend

What we think doing is healthy for us, but, in the “eyes” of another, species, it’s, just, W-E-I-R-D!!!  The column by Jimmi Liao, translated…

Can’t Understand, WHY is it that Humans are all into Working Out…

It’s because They ALL Have Genetic Anomalies…………

And so, this would be, from the “birds” angles, and, they’re, correct, I mean, WHY would we humans, work our asses off, in pursuits of money, fame, yada, yada, yada, when in the end, we all turn into, nothing more than, ashes, and dusts???  That’s the million-dollar, question, isn’t it???

Taking it All Too, Slow, the Government Led by Tsai is Still Waiting for Our Upset to Finally Get to It

On that losing STREAK now, the DDP is, on the party that DERAILED from the wills of we the people, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The losses of the nine-in-one elections, the pains aren’t even over yet and the DDP is still, evaluating, what went, wrong, then came for it, another loss of the election of the mayor of Chiayi too, and, the head of state, Su kept on, ranting incessantly, and still stalled the flights to and from China, the FDA still, trying to, weasel their ways from the labeling of the exports of items from here to China, the district attorney’s offices are, going all out, going after Kao, with the government of Tsai, keep on, doing things that upset the people that are, unjust.  For the elections in Chiayi, Huang used the 63.6-percent votes, defeated Lee’s 34.8-percent, which clearly stated that we the people, no longer followed the leaderships of the DDP now.

From any angle, however, there’s no hurry nor worries over the DDP’s loss of the local district elections.  In calling out to the party members to “stay together”, the various sects o the DDP maintained their silence, for now, seemingly waiting for Lai to become the chairperson of the party, then, the whole party will have the victories of the 2024 elections in the pockets.  As for what responsibilities should Tsai shoulder, does the cabinet led by Su need to be, switched out, dose the government need to adjust the direction it’s heading, is the party switching out the incompetent members of the higher up offices, none of these, are in the DDP’s, considerations.  Yes, the DDP can still, take its, sweet time, using the word of Chen on the imports of groupers being banned to export to China: we are waiting for the public to get angrier.

until we became, an angry MOB like this, the DDP is not going to look AT itself and examine its own, bad behaviors, until we overthrow the DDP, it won’t know what it’d done wrong! Photo from online

but we the people are just, way too, civilize to rise up or to, RIOT!!!

The DDP had been in power for a whole of six and a half years now, the party’s used to getting its ways with the policies, it may not even recall, what the “upsets of the people” is.  Especially for the president, Tsai, for two whole years, she’d, stayed, out of the spotlight, not hosted any press conferences, or got interviewed by the press, she’s now, only used to public speaking to a small group of press, or posting on FB, not facing up to the questioning or the inquiries of the party, or outside her own political party, and, I’m afraid, that the words, “People’s Opinions” have slowly, gotten, erased from, her, mind.  Based off of the Taiwanese People’s Opinions Foundation’s latest polls, the rate of support of DDP went from 41.2-percent from three months ago to now, 3.5-percent, and, it’d, intersected with the support for the KMT.  Can these changes, at least, WAKE Tsai up about the people’s opinions of her, as well as her, party too?

Take Chiayi for example, the 2020 elections, Tsai won an all-time-high votes of all of DDP’s history.  At this time, the mayoral elections, Lee only won 32,790 votes, not even a-third of the votes that Tsai had won.  And the DDP doesn’t wonder: where did the missing votes of more than 66,000 go in just a little over two years?  Like Chen, and Lin, the assistant secretary to the presidential office, Lee was also, a favorite of Tsai’s, and, had, just like all others, stepped over other people, to get higher up.  But this time, the Central Election Commission’s delaying voting for Chiayi, in the end, the executive offices, the higher up of the party are, already having their own troubles, and couldn’t help him campaign, and in exchange, the city got an all-time low voting rates, and the DDP’s losing the race.

The DDP took power, and made many calculations for their own benefits, and it’d upset the voters ever the more.  And yet, the evaluation committee led by Cheng that was supposed to evaluate what the party did to cause it to lose big, still can’t hit the bull’s eyes to this very day.  Some blamed it on the elongating of the service terms, causing the younger generations to not vote for the party, some believed, that the stance of the party on the relations with China needs to change, some blamed it on the fake news cognitive warfare; blaming everything, but nobody DARED state the obvious, “it’s because the DDP strayed from the public’s expectations, and the values of democracy”.  Losing to this bad, the party doesn’t even make a peep on the evaluations of what’d happened to it, how will it introspect?  How will it know what it needs to improve on?

What’s worse is not just playing dumb in the post-elections evaluations, but how the members of the party was paid off, and the going after of the members who’d not won.  Before Lai was the chairperson of the party yet, his subordinate, Yu who was fired from his post from his affairs, got put up for the post of the C.E.O. of “Taiwan Information Security Agency”.  And, the younger brother of the legislator, Chiu who was sentenced for the smuggling of the cigarettes in the China-Airlines case, got a promotion that was recently announced by China-Air.  While Kao, the candidate for Hsinchu, who was debated on the fees she’d paid her assistant, had been gone after hard by the district attorney’s office.

Ironic as it is, had the DDP not claimed its grander ideals, it’s double-standards currently, won’t have that adverse an effect to the people; had Tsai not issued so many declaration, using her writing style, her means of ruling this country wouldn’t be interpreted by we the people as cruel.  That big ship is turning slowly now, the DDP is evaluating what went wrong, even, slower, as the upsets of the people get loud enough, then you shall, finally, feel, our, wraths!

And so, this is what this, party-by-the-people is in essence, it’d, SCREWED us over from the days of shortages of vaccines, then, from using the citizens in this country as guinea pigs for the vaccine tests, for importing in the vaccines in late, for banning the imports of BioNTech vaccines late, because the agent is from China, and count up how many are already DEAD, and still dying, contracting the virus here in this country, not to mention, the favoring those immoral losers in the party, and trying to go after those who don’t follow their leads, and it still doesn’t have enough abilities to introspect, and, for certain the DDP is on its way, to losing the major presidential election coming up in 2024 for sure!

A Wall Called, “Freedom”

What we’re, building, a mirage, a wall called, “freedom”, and we’d been told that it will, keep, everything bad out, that’s why, we’d started, carrying them bricks to this location, stackin’ ‘em up, one atop another, and another, and another, to build up this wall.

A wall called, “freedom”, but, walls are never supposed to be free, are they?  I mean, look at these, four-walls that kept us locked in, in the offices, sitting at our desks, slaving our lives away, and for what, huh?  Some, measly pay!  A wall called, “freedom”, we’d been instructed to build, but, this wall called “freedom”, is actually, a prison instead, keeping us, isolated, in our own means.

we’d, labored, and sweated…

photo from online

A wall called, “freedom”, we’d built it up, and now, we stand underneath it, and realized, that we’d, locked ourselves in here (don’t ask where!), and we got no way of, getting over to the other side, as the grasses are, greener (hello, hello, hello???).

Shouldn’t have built up that wall, no matter WHAT its “name” is in the first place, oopsy, too late for that now, it can’t be torn back down again, once that’s, been, built up!

A wall called freedom, that’s, said to keep everything over at the other side, and, we’d become, the “other” side (whatever it’s composed of!), in building this wall we thought could, free us, from whatever we’re, trying to, escape………………

Hell on Earth, Ten Days in Burma, the Taiwanese Man Witnessed Someone Getting Tasered, and Put into a Fish Tank Prison

The REALITIES of pursuing after that dream of, “easy money”, by the young, the naïve, not to mention, the STUPID!!!  Off of the Newspapers, translated…

The twenty-six year-old male, Chen from Tainan was scammed by a love con artist, and went to the KK Park of Burma, forced to work as a phone scammer, with the help from the city councilperson, the police here, he was finally, rescued back not too long ago; he’d told the press yesterday, that although it was only for ten days he got trapped in Burma, it was like living in hell on earth, that he was really glad he is now, back in Taiwan.

Chen told that he’d met a woman, Wang on FB at the start of August, after a few communications, the woman told him that she has a company trip which she could bring someone, and invited him to go.  He’d paid the charges, flew to Thailand first, then, transferred to the KK Parks in Burma, as he saw Wang, he’d found, that she wasn’t like what her photo online looked like, felt that he got cheated, and immediately, he was under the control of the scam artist ring, and they’d forced him to work the lines in the telecommunications scams.

“It was only for a short ten days, but it’d felt like hell eternally, I still feel the shock”, he’d told, that on the day he’d arrived locally, he started “taking the group training courses”, including using a false name, uploading the fake photos on the social media accounts, the second day was the “test”, the managers of the groups told them that the first three weeks of this “training” was the adjustment period, that a month later, he would formally start working.

During the time, he’d witnessed many Taiwanese people getting mistreated, and abused, and tortured because they couldn’t make the demands of the rings, some was even water tortured, told to strip, and put into dirty water for the whole day, not only did the person’s skin start rotting away, the mind was also, nearly, broken down as well.  He’d also heard, that if the ring thought that someone wasn’t useful anymore, the individual will be taken to the port in Cambodia or the public oceans to get their organs harvested out of them alive.

The city councilwoman of Tainan, Lin got the call for help from Chen’s family on August 19th, the families told her that Chen went to Thailand with a female he’d met online, left the country on the thirteenth, and lost contact with them here by the fifteenth, they’d immediately sought help from the head of detective agency the international unit, the head of the police station in Yongkang , Gan to help, in the end, it was through the criminal investigation agency and the airport police station, that they’d made the rescue.  She’d told, that in the process of negotiation, the Taiwanese human trafficking ring demanded the families pay the ransoms, the police told them not to, and finally, Chen was returned back to this country on the 22nd.

Yeah, because you’re enticed by the lies of easy work, high pay, that’s why you’d gone to Burma, thinking you’d struck gold, without knowing or realizing, that HEY, you are the targeted population, because you’re young, naïve, NOT to mention, STUPID too, and because you hadn’t learned the lessons of how you always need to work hard for what you want to have in your lives, and your families had to pay for your rescue, and, there are, going to be, more of these, cases of younger generations who thought they’d struck gold, in getting the offers to work elsewhere, because you can’t find a good enough job here.

Beliefs about Being, “Privileged”…

Some of us, were raised in homes, where there’s NOTHING lacking, materialistically speaking, but, we’d been, deprived of our, parents’, attentions growing up, so, are we, privileged, or are we not?

That’s just it, you know, most people define themselves, on being lucky, because they got all the money handed to them, ‘cuz they never had to work a day in their lives, for the sake, of that, hard-earned, dollar, and yet, there are, those of us, who got, EVERYTHING handed to us, money, polo shirts, name brand watches, purses, etc., etc., etc., and yeah we’re, materialistically well-to-do, but, we’re, still NOT, considered, RICH!

And yeah, maybe I’d been, too, SPOILED rotten, by the endless number of hundred dollar bills USD (they came in wads of, five to six “pieces” at a time from before!), and I NEVER had to “work a day in my life” for my “living” either.

And so, based off of solely just that, I guess I’m, totally, SPOILED, rotten all right.

But I know for a FACT, that I am NOT, spoiled rotten, ‘cuz I NEVER had what I was in need of, which was the unconditional love from my two primary attachment figures (hello, hello, hello?  And, I am NOT going back to tell you WHAT those are again here!), instead, I got, abused emotionally by his DEAD parents, BURNED by his dead father’s teacups and teapot, solely because, he didn’t want my wandering little hands, to pick up his SHIT and oopsy, drop it onto the floors and shatter his things, not to mention how his DEAD mother molested me, all the way, up into my early teens, when I got out of this SHIT hole, then, she stopped having “access” over me on the weekends, did that SHIT finally end.

And, it wasn’t until I got in my late twenties, did I realize, all these SHITS that’s happened to me.  On top of that, I am still, carrying this DEAD baby girl of mine (no need for “introduction” here), since 2008.

So, guess what I’m saying to all of y’all is this: I KNOW I’m now, more than ENTITLED to have a good AND easy (you have got to be SHITTING me here!) life that I’m now, currently living.

And no, I still don’t gotta worry ‘bout shits like M-O-N-E-Y.  Got that shit, shoved ALL the way up my you-know-where (don’t need to “draw”, do I???), since I was very young, and now, I’m still, “digesting” all of the Ben Franklins’, Ulysses S. Grants, Andrew Jacksons, etc., etc., etc., out right now…

So yeah I am, god damn “PRIVILEGED” here all right.

And you have GOT to be shitting me here!

This “spoiled BRAT” is done, for now…

The Air, My Friend

On just how foolish we humans can, be, the column by Jimmi Liao, translated, by me…

The Stars, They Gathered by the Seaside, But They’d Kept a Safe Social Distance with One Another.

Those Who Don’t Follow the Rules are All Jinxes,

And, Can’t Believe, that People Actually, Made Wishes on Them…………………

So, this showed, how foolish we humans are, based off of this interpretations, if the shooting stars are the stars that aren’t, “acting right” falling off left and right, and we humans are, stupid enough, to think, that making wishes on these shooting stars, somehow, our wishes might, come true, then, what does that, make us?

Oh I know, STUPID!

The Parents Only Threw the Money Down, and Not Taken the Time to Be with Their Children, and of Course the Children Aren’t Happy

What YOUR (‘cuz I don’t got one!) children are needing from you, stupid parents, so, STOP paying them all with all those, materialistic CRAP already, huh?  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The satisfaction rating of children in Taiwan in 2020 was at an all-time low, nearly twenty-percent of children surveyed felt they were lonely.  In the assortments of reform in education, and the parents stressing that the kids should have fun learning, the correlation of the two factors are more and more, negatively, correlated, such irony.

Reasons for the drop of happiness in children and teens include, time of sleep, amount of exercises, and the pickiness toward foods, there are only a quarter of children surveyed who’d exercised less than sixty minutes or more out of a week, with the average sleep per day less than eight hours, and, the older the children are, the number of hours in sleep shortens.  Half of children surveyed felt they were overwhelmed by the academic pressures.

With the advancements in molecular biology, we’d come to understand, that the workings of how children learn, and the neural developments in the children’s brains, that is, the foundations of children learning to live and learn happily.  The parents are now, outsourcing the means of expressions of love for their own young, sending them to the preschools, the kindergartens, and the cram school sessions, was their means of taking responsibilities for their own young.

The assortments of modern day inventions helped us save the time, like the washing machines, takes the time away from us doing the laundry by hand, and yet, the parents didn’t utilize the time they got.  The smart phones, the iPads, available to the children’s for using, and, handing your own young to someone else to raise, to teach, to educate.  It’s a wonder, that modern day family required so much money to run on, because of the large amounts of expenses, the parents didn’t have enough time for their own children.

Some of the instructors are used to bullying as a method of teaching, cramming in the lessons, and, blaming the children’s lacking in performances to the families’ going on.  And, if the medical personnel didn’t get caught up with the times now, then, all of these knowledge that are new, can’t be accessible by the instructors who were taught the old way.  If those in the children protections realm don’t have the “professionalism”, only using their ”experiences and passion for their work” to manage the matters.  What sort of an effect would it get?

The school instructors, the medical professionals are trained professionals, meaning, that they “have the knowledge as basis, their conscience as their attitude, and passions in their job as their motivations”, not just using one’s own professional skills to help others.  Allowing the medical care professionals to get into the realms of welfare of the children and teens, to help them improve their psychological wellbeing.

While the responsibilities of the parents are, providing the love, that sense of security, comfort, allowing the kids to have enough sleep, a balanced diet, and enough exercises.  That way, the children and teens will be able to learn at a maximum capacity, and, at this stage in their lives, they need no cram school, no talent classes to help them add on to their skillsets, these core abilities can’t be gained by throwing the money down, it’s achieve through the daily goings on of your children’s, lives.

With the various levels of developments of the brain in maturation, when needed, surely, the extra courses are necessary, then, this would be when you need to spend the money on, parents.

And so, this, is on outsourcing raising your own young to everybody else, but yourselves, parents, because you’re all way too busy, making the money, paying your mortgages, oh, and little Johnny’s private preschool tuition just hiked up fifteen-percent this semester, and we need to enroll our kids into ballet, musical instrument, gymnastics, etc., etc., etc., without knowing, that these measures you stupid parents are taking, to ensure that your children don’t lag behind the rest of their peers is, murdering them, what the kids need is Y-O-U-R companionship, and, you can’t even provide that to them, something that’s, so, simple, and you call yourselves, “fitting parents”?  Give ME a break here!

Me, Twenty Years from Now

This is a much-needed wakeup call that the adults are in need of, and you got one, from your students!  Translated…

We had an essay assignment for the winter breaks, “Me, Twenty Years from Now”, the kids wrote out their innocent dreams, it’d moved me so, and I was in awe with them: Ting isn’t well in the academia, but is an excellent artist, he’d found his true happiness in doodling, so, his dream is to become an artist; Xi’s calligraphy isn’t with the good penmanship, but the class put him up for the calligraphy competitions, he’d used his spare time to practice hard, as he’d won first-place, it’d boosted his confident a whole lot, he now has the goal of becoming a calligraphy instructor; Wei enjoyed making the models, and wanted to become an owner of a garage, that way, he get to play with all the cars he wanted, and also, make a living doing what he enjoyed…………from their childish words, I’d felt the powers of self-confidence, and, this motivation from within them, can turn them into something wonderful, they will be able to build their own dreams from the ground up, based off of the separate interests they have, I give them the best of all wishes.

Twenty years later, they’re all in the primes of their lies, with their lives, colored and pretty and bright.  Yet, I would be well into my elderly years, and, what kind of a dream is available for me to catch at this time in life?  I’d made me lost in thought.

Recalled how as I just begun, I’m like the singer, Chang’s, “My Future is NOT a Dream”: “live every minute to my best, my heart is moving along with hope.”  Kept working hard, to fulfill my dreams of striking it rich, believed, that money will give me a good life.  As I’d, had my share of good foods, as I’d gotten all the extravagant of life handed to me on that silver platter, it was like the group Nine-One-One’s, “Fools in Dreams”: “My life is like a song, but I can’t get to the repeats, passed through an assortments of ups and down, the multiple facets of life, but I seemed to have, missed out on it all.”  I’d found, that the pointless pursuits I had, made me miss out on too many things of which I should’ve placed more emphasis on.

My children’s essays awakened me, the dream chaser who’d been lost.  Don’t want to follow the footstep of the narrator of the song by Chen, “You’d Told that You’d Tasted All the Bitterness of Life, Finally Found the One You Can Trust.  You Told of How Upset You’d Felt, to the Point of Doubting Your Own Lives…………”, I’d selected to follow the singer, Jen’s “Dream that Dream, Again”, to find that passion back in my life again, to keep track of what made me feel moved, to care for myself the best I possibly can, on this way to my brand new life, to help the me, twenty years from now, to still have the fresh flowers to smell, to have the radiant sunshine shine down on me, to live happily.

So, this is how the teacher became, the student here, the students’ dreams are untainted, because they hadn’t gotten into the world yet, that’s why their dreams are so simple, and it takes very little for them to feel happy, which what we adults had forgotten, in the pursuit of fame, fortune, etc., etc., etc., and the writer’s students merely gave her a wakeup call that she desperately needed.

Are the Public Arts Nothing More than Expandables, Getting Taken Down as They Were Too Easily, Set Up

And guess W-H-O, are paying, for these, decorative, street, art pieces?  Yeah, WE are!!!  How the government still doesn’t MAKE good use of, the taxpayers’, dollars here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

In the past couple of years, the city of Taipei trashed 1,201 Ubikes, with the city councilwoman, Yang, criticizing how the city government was trashing the values of the total bikes, being sold off as preowned for $1.03 million N.T.s, that the final rack the city recycled only sold off for $37, like scrap metal, that the total cost of over million dollars’ worth of YouBikes only sold for a total of $30,000N.T., that the vehicles were, illegally, recycled, and sold off too cheaply.

But, comparing, the “Lotus Lights” of Changwha’s Triangle Park is, way cheaper, although it’d taken the local government $6.6 million of the taxpayers’ dollars to build, as it was recently, taken down, it’d not sold for even, ten-cents, and it took the government over $300,000N.T. to get it, taken down, odd, how come there’s no city councilmembers, calling the city government out.  The “Papers for Trashing Public Art Displays” had NO mentions of the pieces, let alone, sold off cheaply, it’d only had the means to get the foundations of the park to where it once was before the displays were, set up.

something like this…

something like this…photo from online

Comparing, there are the public art display pieces from the National Defense Office in Dajr, Taipei, and everybody may have already guessed, that one day, when the D.O.D. no longer wanted the pieces, and some high school from the local regions wanted to keep the pieces can the D.O.D. transfer the properties over to the schools?  The answer would be, the pieces still belongs to the D.O.D., that nobody can just go and take it down!  And so, these public art pieces, aren’t on a say-so order, it’s still, a huge asset of the government.

It’s just, that nobody places the public display art pieces too highly, instead, they see them as, expandables.  As the Hsinbei City Government had been inquired: how are the pubic art pieces registered as properties?  The answer is: the public arts aren’t a part of the “key points of the properties of the central government and related government offices”, and, the property’s expiration dates are set as the individual city government’s choosing.  And, the means to trash these properties are exactly the same as when citizens filed the papers to disown their properties.

And so, this, is just one more way, the government wastes the taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars, on bullshits, I mean, some of these so-called “art pieces”, don’t look pleasant enough, and it shouldn’t be put on the street corners, causing all our eyes to feel sore, and yet, the government is still, spending, massive amounts of our hard-earned dollars on these useless things, instead of putting our tax dollars, to better use, like improving the education of children, setting up more public daycare centers and the like, so we can actually, USE the money we already pay into the government.
