Giving up a lot! (Aug 28, 2009)

November 1, 2009

有很多人問我:「你放棄,捨棄,犧牲了很多,都是為了隨著丈夫到中國去,你的感覺如何?」

我會答: 「有捨必有得。我不把手上的東西放下,又怎能有手來拿新的東西呢?」

Many people asked me,’Lillian, you gave up a lot for this China’s stay, how do you feel now?’

I will answer,’if you don’t give up, you won’t have hands to take new things, right?’

說真的,我當然很捨不得我本來所有的東西,所以當天我要把我的「家產」賣去的時候,是很不捨得,但又不至於痛之入骨。因為我還有我的家人和朋友是不會離開我的。

物質當然是重要,但它是死的,沒有了舊的,可以添置新的。不過有時候人總是喜歡懷愐過去,總覺得新不如舊。其實,’新’的東西用久了一樣會便成舊的,就是需要’時間’去磨練。

Frankly speaking, I really miss all my stuffs in Canada. I could remember the hard feeling while I sold all my goodies in Canada for this leaving. But I am glad that I still have my family and friends with me, they will never leave me alone (oh well, for family, they will not, for friends, it depends, of course.)

Materials are not alive, and whenever you lost the old stuffs, you can always buy the new ones. Some people miss the old ones, and they think that the new ones aren’t be the same as the old ones. Just like the old shoes are always more comfortable than the new ones. But, if you wear the new ones for a period of time, they will become old again, and you will definitely love them again. SO, it’s just the matter of “time”, how much time you are willing to use and wait for the better outcome.

我們在深圳已經有一個月的時間了,說適應,我覺得處理家頭細務已經是掌握得到。比較在加拿大時所用的工夫多一點點,因為這裡沒有地氈,而且家裡甚麼都是白色的,所以,有塵,有頭髮,一眼便看到。再加上有這個ERIKA小妹妹在,我每天都要吸一次塵。

We already lived in Shenzhen for a month, I can say that I am quite used to the ‘housework’ here. In Canada, I tend to do less because we have carpet (most of the areas), but, here, as you could see from the pictures in my previous posts, they are all white, so, whenever there is a hair, a little dirt, you can really see them clearly. I can’t stand it, and will do the clean up right away. So, I do the vaccuming every single day.

因為我們在這裡的天氣亦太熱,容易出汗,所以每天都要洗衣。有時候可能要洗兩至三機的衣服,因為我們這裡的洗衣機是超細型的。

Because of the hot weather here, we sweat a lot and need to change clothes a lot. SO, you can imagine how much laundry work I have to do everyday? Since we don’t have big washing machine here, I have to do 2-3 times a day for just washing the clothes and stuffs! We don’t need to use it because 1) it takes a long time to dry in the machine and wastes lots of energy. 2) hanging out is the way we do, and it will dry overnight.

煮食方面,我也開始掌握得到了’火的威力’,可以把它控制得好一點,沒有再把菜煮成炭了,哈哈!

不過,為了可以讓ERIKA吃好一點,我多在家裡煮,很少外出吃。我想,對家人照料好一點是我的責任哦!

所以,我也每兩天左右便帶著ERIKA到超市買菜。 ERIKA也開始習慣媽媽要煮菜,自己在廳裡玩,沒有騷擾我太多。

我們都很懷念婆婆煮的菜,究竟我何時才能像她的手藝呢?

Cooking: I can finally get used to the gas stove…it’s not easy… but, finally I didn’t overcook things. hahaha… And Erika also knows that her mom needs to cook, and she can play outside the kitchen,and plays on her own in the living room. Good girl. She used to run in and out to the kitchen and it’s really disturbing while I was trying to cook something GOOD….

we all miss my mom’s dishes… when can I cook something like my mom’s ?


有了電子鋼琴是我來到深圳最開心的事,因為,有了它,我可以在最寂寞的時候,拿出我心愛的琴譜,彈彈彈,我便覺得很舒服。

說真的,我很是懷念在教會裡做司琴的日子,現在,我真的不知道還要待多久才能有機會事奉了。所以,所有的弟兄姊妹們,我終於體會到沒有機會事奉的’痛苦’,可以事奉是一件很美很美,令神和人都開心的事哦!好好的繼續事奉哦!

I am very grateful to have the electronic piano here! I know that it’s a big difference with teh grand one that I used to have.  But the good thing here is: I can play anytime I want to with the headphone on. So that I will not disturb anyone.🙂  I can play when I feel down, or lonely. I will pick up my fav pieces and then play them. What the best way for relaxation. And I also miss the time I played the piano in the Church. Really miss. So, brothers and sisters, don’t give up serving the Lord, you don’t know how much I miss it…..


我還可以要求甚麼?雖然沒有以前的三角琴,但這個電鋼可以有一個很好的function是普通鋼琴做不到的:用headphone來聽,這樣不會吵到人家哦。

多麼好的,這樣,我可以在ERIKA睡覺的時候彈琴,多麼的自由,可以走回自己的世界裡去。

謝謝媽媽的提醒:今天是我和丈夫結婚第五週年。

時間過得真快,我們所經歷的事都不少,希望我們可以一起共度患難,開心和不開心的。

希望隨著日子的飛誓能夠讓我們的愛加增不減少,有磨擦的都能夠用時間去修補。

Thanks for my mom’s reminder: Today’s our Anniversary (5th) .. I can’t imagine that it’s already 5 years from the day we got married.Time flies.

I hope that two of us will keep loving each other as before (or even more than before) And will face the hardship, happy and unhappy moments together. Forgive each other and forget the mistakes that we had made.


We had a delicious Japanese food tonight… with ERika as well.🙂 (thanks Mom and dad for the ‘red pocket’🙂 )

we all enjoyed the food there, and we also had a special dessert in 滿記 dessert house, very nice~~!
