地球迎接2008年 the earth: welcome 2008

這張地球圖是日本宇航機,由月球表面拍的相片. this photo of the earth, is taken by Japanese space craft from the surface of the moon.

2007年結束了.心中沒有感覺.只有一些sms的願詞供分享:
衛理報幹事黃孟禮的sms:
2008年即將到來啦!
曾經擁有的不要忘記
屬於自己的不要放棄
辛苦得來的更要珍惜
已經失去的當做回憶
走過的道路已成過去
願你的未來一切都能---"隨心所欲"

吳大平在聖誕前夕寄的sms:
我對主祈禱,願永遠快樂
主說:不行,只能4天
我說:春天,夏天,秋天,冬天
主愣:兩天
我笑:黑天,白天
主惊:一天
我說:生命中的每一天

祝願大家:2008鼠年快樂!

dear friends, as 2007 coming to a close, I truly hope that everything will turn up just nice to all of us in 2008.
If you have any message you wish to convey, please do so....all are welcome.
Happy New Year 2008---year of the mouse.

4輪驅動車越野賽 4 x 4 wheels competition

準備好了嗎?比賽就要開始...are you ready? lets the show begins...
這下是卡住了. obviously, it just won't move.
加油,加油. OK, let's move on...
靠近一點,看個清楚. have a closer look.
出力,往上沖. extra push, move upwards.
喂,喂,喂,小心,翻倒了...be careful, it is overturning...
這下就是在泥水中沖涼了.now, this is called: bathing in the muddy water.
嘩,怎麼搞的?滿車是泥. whoow, dirt all over the vehicle.
努力一點拼吧.try harder.
陷在泥濘中.動彈不得. muddy road? or drain?
不會動,沒辦法...it would not move, what to do?
看看這位跟車手,拖著鋼索也真夠辛苦的.already tired for this assistant.

從來未見過4輪驅動車越野賽,今早特地早早由古晉趕赴石角,石隆門區的明強果園,不是去品嚐丹斯里的水果,乃是去見識見識4輪驅動車比賽的熱潮.
比賽場地如同戰場,需翻山越嶺,爬得傷痕累累,又饑又渴,比工作更努力,為得?僅僅是幾張相片而已.
好了,與大家分享分享....
4 x 4 wheels competition, really pulled quite a lot of enthusiasts and onlookers. It was held half way on Kuching Bau road, at Ming Kiong fruit farm, which was owned by Tansri Ting Pek Khing.
there are different categories of competition, all are real excitement and fun for the spectators, but hard work and tiredness for the competitors.
here are their actions in pictures....

搭上詩巫聖誕節末班車 glances of Christmas in Sibu

今年又是在外過聖誕節,還好部落格普遍,大有取代報紙的趨勢,將詩巫的一點一滴呈現在遊子眼前,而且是及時的,沒有受限的.
詩巫難得,今年也會興起舉行聖誕節活動,而且是在尚未完全完成的創走廊展開.
雖然"創走廊"名稱怪怪的,好無理頭,不能令人想起詩巫任何點滴,不過,聖誕節活動在此舉行,倒也令人對它另眼相看.確實有一點獨創的眼光.
這個聖誕節活動,包括了冰雕,舞台表演,展覽,花車,童活人物模仿賽等.
the night scene of Sibu was recently lighted up in Christmas mood, with ice sculptures, stage show, exhibition, floats, figures in the wonderland, and etc...all at the newly built "Chuan Corridor", a funny named site.

這棵聖誕樹該是詩巫最高最大的吧? this should be the tallest and biggest Christmas tree in Sibu.
噢...,多可愛的小天使.人類沒有小孩子,是多殘忍的事.oh, sweet little angels, you are the hope of human beings.
這是冰雕嗎?很容易溶解哦. Is this ice sculpture? it will melt in no time.
衛理公會福源堂,聖誕節出"方舟"救世界,設想週到,知道詩巫沉在大水里.Masland Methodist church Noah's ark coming to save the world from the Sibu flood.

晉恩堂歡慶聖誕節 celebrate christmas at ching ong methodist church

受洗加入基督教的家庭.baptized into the family of Christian community.
詩班在戴著聖誕老人帽子的孩童前,歡唱聖誕歌曲. choir sings to the congregation of Christmas prayer.
是夫唱婦隨,還是夫婦同心?將愛的樂章向世界宣揚.a couple sing Christmas song to spread the good news.
晉恩堂內部情況.interior of ching ong Methodist church.
兒童裝扮成聖誕老人服,歌頌耶穌的誕生.children sing Christmas songs.
兒童表演跳舞.children dance on the stage.
3位牧洋人,3位博士,來朝見耶穌.3 shepherds, 3 wise men, led by the star to where Jesus was born, and worship him.
每人都有一粒汽球. everybody can have a balloon.

"生命有限,時光也會走,
如果你不珍惜,機會難留,
禮物雖然好,如果你不要,
你怎麼能夠得到,
怎麼能得到?"

這首詩歌,唱來好聽,其含意更深.
在聖誕節慶祝的時候,聽起來更發人深省.
一件禮物.
有一份,愛的禮物,
我要將它送給你.
這是我的心和意....

每逢佳節倍思親,是在別人都休息,沒工作,只有你幾人在傻傻的工作時,面對孤零零的辦公室,你瞭解到天天工作的含意.只有你天天在傻傻的工作,不受賞識,不獲肯定.工作,只為了飯碗.
說的人休假去了,只對你說"我們天天工作",把你當傻瓜.
那些不慶祝聖誕的人休息,放假.那些不是華人的,在華人新年放假.這世界,有的是虛情假意,狐假虎威.
想起那份禮物....

古晉衛理晉恩堂,聖誕節舉辦成人受洗,兒童受洗,歌聲讚美,兒童舞蹈表演 ,耶穌降生聖劇等,讓人多有感觸.尤其是卓家祥師母----李美霞女士的福音信息,一件禮物要給你,你究竟要不要?有幾個人會拒絕不要人家所送的禮物?

Kuching ching ong Methodist church celebrate Christmas in a happy mood. with lots of Christmas songs, dancing, Christmas story stage show, baptism for children and adults, balloons, ballpoint pens, foods, all for those who attend the worship service.

聖誕節吃福州麵線 foochow noodle to celebrate Christmas

慶祝聖誕節,不一定要吃西方人的火雞.我們東方人,有自己的慶祝方式.福州人,也有福州人的美食.今天這個普天同慶的日子,做為福州人一份子,當然以福州麵線,加紅酒,來款待客人囉.當然,是在全砂拉越最大聖誕樹的襯托下,在寒舍好好慶祝一頓.celebrate Christmas in Foochow's way. turkey is not our favorite, rather, as a Foochow, naturally Foochow noodle and local produced wine is as good. Let's celebrate "joy to the world", celebrate Christmas under the shade of Sarawak largest and tallest Christmas tree.
