a Fascinating quote of today:

The great general is one who finds a way to win without fighting a single battle.

(cited from the Art of War, 孫子兵法 Sūn Zǐ Bīng Fǎ in Chinese) 😉

I’ve got this when I watched the History channel this afternoon on TV. I find it so fascinating because I feel like everybody is living in such a competitive environment in HK here. Most of the time, people like to compare and compete against each other. Then this would eventually generate a lot of conflicts in any kinds and misunderstandings.

After watching the programme, I thought, sometimes if we could step back a little and try to avoid wars between anybody, wouldn’t it be a win-win situation and we would all win eventually? I think this is how people can build up their positive relationships with each other in this crazily competitive Hong Kong situation nowadays.

Anyway, Stay Cool, Stay Positive and PEACE! 😉

P.S. I’ve found this wonderful site to learn the Art of War in simple English too. Check this out!



20th aniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall today!

The fall of the Berlin Wall signifies the fall of Communism in the East Germany. Once separated, democracy made it united.

You may not care so much about Germany, but Berlin has always been ‘the one’ of my favorite European city. It is a city full of history as well as modern cultures and technology. Despite the cold weather in winter, there are always marvelous art, music, dance, movies and exhibitions to warm our heart up. (I even once thought that I might marry a German guy and live there for some time of my life! 😛 but now it turns out to be French guy in HK!!)
