This & That Including What Ails

Already February In 2023

on February 5, 2023

Time truly flies and it is not as if I am having fun. On the contrary instead, I have a jam packed schedule that never seems to abate at all.

Today is Chap Goh Meh or the final day of the 15 days of celebration for Chinese Lunar New Year. I also learnt today that Chap Goh Meh is the Chinese version of Valentine’s Day and that single women would usually toss Mandarin oranges in the river or canal to find true love!

Bah…I will never find true love and gave up on that a long time ago. These days, I just plod on and do what needs to be done for my folks, my work and for self.

Life is what gives and my good doctors have offered me philosophical advice –

“Live for today as tomorrow is just an illusion” this is from Fair Maiden who has achieved meditation master status and is my good doctor.

” Each surgery, each time is unique to itself, just like life itself.
One step at a time, look forward.”
– this is from a Zen master who is also my good doctor.

We now have air balloons in the skies of USA – another spat is in the making as it does seems lame for China for to encroach onto their airspace. I do not know much about the “political underpinnings” of what is going on, but it is a tad wrong to encroach onto another’s air space I feel.

I hope tensions do not escalate as we do not need China and USA to be at war like Russia with Ukraine. This war between Russia and Ukraine is just taking too long to resolve and it is not doing anyone in the world any good.

I have a full week ahead which includes seeing White Coats to sort out my medical issues, volunteering to do some social work and being interviewed and sharing on how to spot signs of dementia as my father has cognitive issues.

I must stay positive. So should all of us really!

    I’d like to hear that interview… I’m never sure if my hubby has forgotten what I told him or he didn’t hear it in the first place. (He won’t wear his hearing aids).
    Selective deafness, perhaps?

      For persons with hearing aids, I’m more incline towards selective hearing. My mum has hearing issues too and it is hard for me. I speak louder she says I shout at her. I speak softer, she says cannot hear Forgot to add, will try and see if I can forward the link for interview if they share with me. 😃
