阅读三毛《撒哈拉的故事》

本来没想过会有读这本书的决定,前阵子Debbie说要把文华的书交给我,我当时还拒绝了她。

我不太喜欢看小说(后来才知道《撒哈拉的故事》是散文),虽然在中学时期有听过三毛这位作者的名字,基于当时的我,大多数的时间都是在练琴,或作纸粘土手工的。到了二十几岁工作时期,也正是拼钢琴高级文凭考试的期间,每一天都是音乐,音乐再音乐,什么都不想,一天到晚都呆在音乐学院除了教课,空挡时间也只是练琴。

昨天因为读了黄伟华对他读张爱玲小说《小团圆》的感想,还真不知丑的介绍他读三毛的书,其实还搞不清楚自己在做什么。

所以连忙问文华那三毛散文的书名,也在网页查阅这本他力荐的书,昨晚就开始读了两章(太慢了吧? 没办法,要做的事情还真多。。。)

读着读着。。。感觉好像在读黄伟华的日子那般,还真容易消化,但因为要赶紧把它读完而读的心态,有点儿太浪费了,应该像每天早上阅读 星洲日报副刊里所刊登的散文那样,每天一点一点的,享受早茶也享受阅读,那就好多了。

这样一算。。。不懂什么时候能读完呢?

先保后罚!

记得小学时期的我,还真‘快乐’,想一想,我这个迟钝的傻瓜到了初中一才晓得什么是考试需要温习!所以说我有一段傻傻又‘记不起来的快乐时光’。

上个星期是靖雄学校的考试周,这个星期该是派考卷的时候。我对他说过,如果他有一些科目考得不好,我会用藤条鞭打他的手掌,因为考试之前已经不断地提醒他要温习功课。所以这几天的回家时段我意识到他分外担心我问起考卷的事情,比起考试前多了忧虑的样子 (考试期中,他还过得蛮潇洒的!)

我不主张陪读,也许你可以说我懒惰,我觉得一些小事像温习功课应该可以做得到的,学习自立自律是从小教起的,二年级,三年级放不了手,那么请问四年级,五年级你还会放得下吗?况且我并没有分数至上,只是要他知道什么时候必须要有什么的态度。读书有时,玩乐有时,总不能每一样东西都要我安排好给他。

惩罚就一定会有,星期一的回家路程,我对靖雄说: ‘无论妈妈如何惩罚你,你要知道,妈妈是永远爱你的!’ (先买一个保险!打一支部分麻醉药!) 让他痛在肉里,不至于伤到心里。

驅趕 螞蟻, 蚊子, 蟑螂 的妙法 Ways that help get rid of ants, mosquitoes and cockroaches

不殺生又能驅趕 螞蟻蚊子蟑螂 的妙法
Methods that do not kill but get rid of ants, mosquitoes and cockroaches

螞蟻怕酸,蚊子怕辣,蟑螂怕香
Ants don't like sour things, mosquitoes don't like spices and cockroaches don't like fragrant things.
春天來了小生命們馬上就要出洞了,供養給大家 一個不殺生又能驅趕螞蟻、蚊子、蟑螂的妙法

螞蟻怕酸味 

家裡的甜食擺沒幾分鐘,螞蟻大軍立即來襲,讓人又氣又厭。
在這裡獻給各位一項無毒無污染又安全有效的妙招:
To keep away ants, squeeze fresh lemon juice on where they'll be passing, and
also wipe the lemon slices on that surface.
新鮮檸檬對切成兩半,在看到螞蟻的地方及其動線,擠出檸檬汁,並拿著切半有果肉的那一面,沿途 塗抹,
神奇效果讓您再一次驗證大自然的奧妙


蚊子怕辣味
Mosquitoes do not like spice. bury garlic under flowerbeds and clean dead leaves,
and keep the area clean.
蒜頭嗆退,植於花壇四周,其特殊的辛辣味隱隱 飄散。
驅蚊除了打掃環境、清除枯枝爛葉,試植蒜頭絕對是上上之策!


蟑螂怕香味
Cockroaches do not like fragrance. Cut small pieces of soap, put them in a bottle with water, and put the bottle in a cupboard where you want to keep out cockroaches. After several days, they will be all gone and your cupboard will even smell good.
神出鬼沒的蟑螂,最愛隱身於掌管我們民生大計 的廚房裡。
面對「打不死的蟑螂」,辦法是將浴用香皂切成小塊,置於容 器內注入清水,擺放在蟑螂出沒的櫥櫃內,
不出數日,打開櫥櫃將令您訝異於蟑螂的無影無蹤,櫥櫃內還多了怡人的香味。
想要效果持續,僅須定期補充香皂容器內的清水

不用打殺蚊子的辦法    
You do not need to kill mosquitoes: dissolve Vitamin C and B2 in water, wipe the water on your skin, and the scent will drive the mosquitoes away.
Put up orange coloured curtains, or orange plastic wrap around a bulb. Mosquitoes are afraid of orange light, and they will be gone.
Hang up a bunch of spring onions, and use gauze to wrap up the green sections of the onions, and there will be no more mosquitoes.
Putting a pot of Lilies, Milans, Roses, or Evening Primroses in your room will work too. 
一:把幾粒維生素C和維生素B2泡在水裡,將藥水塗抹在皮膚 上,會產生一種讓蚊子不敢接近的氣味。
二:室內掛上橘色的窗簾,或燈罩上罩上橘色的玻璃紙,由於蚊子害怕橘紅色的光線,能產生很好的驅蚊效果。
三:在燈下掛一把蔥,或用紗布包幾根蔥段,各種蚊蟲都不會飛來

四:在房內擺放
一兩 盆茉莉花,米蘭, 玫瑰,夜來香等花卉,也可以驅除蚊蟲。



當你不想蟑螂在你家裡開party   
To drive away cockroaches, you can put pieces of cucumber where you want to keep them away.
蟑螂不喜歡黃瓜的味道,若不想蟑螂在你家裡開party不妨將一兩 掰斷的黃瓜放在它們經常出沒的地方。

'I want to learn that piece!'

Gab told me just now, 'I want to learn that piece!', I asked: 'Which piece?' 'That one you played in Tze Ning's house this afternoon!', I still am not sure about which piece he mentioned about, I thought it might be the 'Waltz Op.69-1 "L'adieu", cos I asked him to learn this piece, right away I headed to the room to play him this piece, he said not this one.

Aha~! My eyes opened wide, this one?  Then I played another one, Chopin's Etude Op.10-12 "Revolutionary", he nodded his head, I laughed (So sorry to him!)

I replied: 'No, this is too hard for you.' Then he said: 'How about another one?', 'You mean... this one (I start playing) 'Fantaisie-Impromptu by Chopin'..... I laughed again.... as he was looking at me seriously, with his big and determined eyes.... Finally I said: "Yes." (Phew... so ambitious!) I think soon enough he will forget this request... At the same time, I wish he will not give up. A praying mom could make things different, I shall start praying for him... seriously.

He has strong and nimble fingers, this is what I admire him about. He could play light and even semiquavers, he has stable wrists, he can play fast notes, he can read notes well, he just need a little more discipline, plus a pinch of passion to work it out! He can do well in music.

'I am sad!'

Gab followed me out for classes this afternoon, he took his book to spend his time when I am teaching. I had  a long lesson at Tze Ning's house, and while she was doing her theory work, I played a few pieces from her book, and Gab seated just beside me, he was trying to catch which bar I am playing.

I explained the piece in Mandarin and in English mixture, one funny thing happened as when I asked him to turn the page for me, I kept saying: 'Turn! Turn!Turn!.....' I saw his reaction was quite uncertain, go and backward he went, I stopped playing, and asked him why didn't he turn the page. And he said:' I don't know, I thought you are saying '等,等, 等!’,(direct translation is 'wait, wait, wait, which HanYuPinYin is 'Den, Den, Den!', that was a fun one! Made three of us laugh. 

Today is the last lesson I teach Tze Ning, and will pass her to my friend from November, as the location is far to me, and another reason is that her lesson time is during evening time, which after the class, I will be stuck in a jam for about half hour or more before I reached home, I really don't like to waste my time in the traffic jam. As we going off from her house, Tze Ning handed over a small gift, which I am very much thankful for her, she is a good student. And I know I am going to miss her, therefore I added her as my facebook friend. 

In the car, Gab told me he is sad, he said:' Ma, you are not coming to her house anymore?', 'I feel like crying! Like I miss Auntie Macy! I am sad!'. Yeah, he did told me he misses Auntie Macy, our late sister in Christ. And he said: 'I wish everything could go back again.' 

I looked at him (though I was driving, because of the traffic jam, I am able to do this!)  and he turned his face to show me, by pointing his finger to his eyes, he said: 'You see, my tears!' 



He is sentimental.

Jane's Note:


A parent who played a duet with her girl in 'Mini Home Recital' last Saturday, and she was very happy with the  simplified version of ’云上太阳‘, which allows her to have a wonderful time with her daughter, on request, this is another simplified Christian song and another one with accompaniment.

A faithful gadget to make half-boiled eggs

Half boiled egg maker

If you are lover of half-boiled eggs, it is fantastic to have this gadget! I got this during the promotion time run by 'Safe-egg' , which you get a free 'half boiled egg draining pot', when you buy 3 racks of 'Safe-egg', I don't know how it should be called, whatever way I feel that you could understand what it is about.

By using this gadget, I can make half boiled eggs from chilled eggs, without worrying whether those eggs are over cooked or too raw for consuming. They are fantastic.

And there I went to buy another 3 racks to get another one for Debbie, my cousin. And I shall get another one for my brother too! Because we can finish up 30 eggs in a week time..... m... I better go as earlier as possible, I am kind a 'Kia Su' person.



With indicator the volume of boiled water to number of egg.
Isn't it sweet and beautiful?

坐后面的那位男生!

靖雄告诉我他因没有带书而被老师罚站,当时他向老师解释说他的书本交上去了但没派回来,又因为他的脸部发达所以给了老师一个很无助的眼神,换回来是老师的辱骂说:‘别给我看这个可怜的样子!’
我也帮忙他找了书橱以及所有可能丢下的地方,真的没有,所以向他确定一下真的把功课交上后,跟他说:‘妈妈明天就在你下课时段去一趟学校向老师问个明白。’ 别心急不是责问老师为什么,而是交代一下要如何处理他的书若真的不见了,我一向敬佩老师,也不会在小孩面前贬低以及质疑老师的身份,从小教导他尊师重道是在他学习的路途中培养一个非常重要品德修养,这样要先从我们做起。

老师有好有坏,坏的未必以后也是这样,我相信他们会继续寻找方式与学生沟通以及教导。

再过一天,靖雄告诉我那本作业簿已经找到了,是他的同学拿错了,老师在班上也问起靖雄:‘坐后面的那位男生,你的书本找到了吗?’ 当靖雄回来学给我听的时候,有点儿啼笑皆非,竟然教了整一年的课也不知道学生的名字。。。。嗯,还是别笑老师,因为我有时候也不太记得学生的名字, 哈!

Mini scones are on their way

Gab is helping on measurements and mixing dry ingredients


cut doughs ready to bake

Wonderful aren't they?
 Bake scones for two consecutive nights, things have becoming handy, today's mini scones look better than the one I baked yesterday, it was rather over time, appeared to be darker and harder (I would say crispier). And I believe today's mini scones could taste better if I allow them to be baked 2 more minutes..., but overall they tasted nice, Gab took two and a half of them, indeed he felt a bit bad to have three, so he said he will give me the half of his 3rd piece, haha!
