我教子,惟一经。

近来发现孩子真的比我想象中成熟了。

我是那种对孩子学业期许不高的妈妈。考试前会念,可考回来如成绩不理想也不会严惩。(常因为都已发生了,还唠叨什么呢?)然后当孩子要学什么,去呗,不喜欢别学了呗。。。就这样很随性的,很相信的,很无形的让孩子自己做了很多决定。

孩子渐渐长大踏入社会,都没大学毕业。常会反省是不是当年应该对他们的学业更严谨?会担心他们的竞争能力,可是更担心他们的人生价值观与自信,孝亲敬老的谦卑,兄妹之间的和睦,对人处事的判断,人生的学习。毕竟学习不是单在校园而是社会上的不断学习。

孩子在成长中的迷茫无助也变成了我的学习,学习怎么在他们成年期失落的时候还愿意听进刺耳的忠言;学习怎么让我还是选择相信他们的判断;学习怎么在远远的,冷静的陪着他们探索自己的人生,却也能在最需要时跳出来,让他们知道你一直都在。

感安慰的是孩子被一群孝顺的姑姑叔叔,阿姨舅舅围绕着成长,对长辈的孝道,人前人后的谦诚都让我放心。或许他们都听惯了我这个感性妈妈常挂在嘴边的爱你,可是我知道他们今天自主的个性因为知道背后一直有一个相信他们的妈妈,一群非常爱他们的长辈。

人教子,金满籝;我教子,惟一经。

不是朋友不够真

好多时候我们都常听说。。。低点见挚友, 高点交面具。

过去也认同这说法,可昨天被那瞬间灵光连接了两点脑细胞(大概估计两点吧,看我也不想脑细胞会用的特多的一个 ;) )

不是朋友不够真,而是自己不够真。当交朋友随便之时,朋友也赚个便宜友情。平常如待人处事缺少尊重用心,朋友从旁观察已对自己缺乏信任,只不过没说出口。所以当出现问题需要帮忙之际,身边无数借机逃之夭夭。

我觉得身边出现脱跑朋友是一件好事,是一个从新检讨自己的机会。真做对了,少一个面具朋友,赚到了;做错了,就领悟到一个改过的机会。可以在你改过后还留下来陪你成长的朋友,就是这一生赚到的挚友了 :) 不是吗? 不管好坏,到后来自己还是赢家。

人生高低点

很多时,人生的。。。

自信在高点赚回来;
领悟在低点痛出来。

Soul in Seoul - 찜질방 Jjimjilbang Experience

This is an experience you can't miss when visiting Korea. Thanks to the years of Kdrama, set my mind for this a "must visit" ;) 

Thanks to the bunch of 13 tired exhausted bunch trusted me on this (hahaha...surely big part of it coz too late to say no), walked a good long 40mins (I think :p mistaken it will not be too far from Myeongdong because it was just 2 stations away!) The long and sunny walked definitely added on the great experience of it. 

Siloam Sauna located nearby Seoul Station, from Seoul Station with just a few minutes walk. Entrance fee at 10,000 won each from 9am till 5pm. Too bad can't take photo in the bathroom. The experience of walking around the giant bathroom with different shape was definitely a good remembrance ^^ I saw my future in them >< 

Skinny dipped into 42ºC was surely a HOT bath! and a chilled in to 12ºC was truly an unforgettable bath in life. Jjimjilbang is very well equipped. From the difference type of baths, body scrub, sauna room (oxygen, charcoal, ice room -15ºC, Jade and etc), cinema area, hot stone seat, meeting room, gym, game room, hair saloon, nail spa.... you name it and they have it.

As shown in Kdrama, we tried cracked herbal egg on our friend's head, skinny dipped, experienced few hours of Korean. 

행복해요 :)

Soul in Seoul - Gyeongbukgung 경복궁

My second visit after lunch on day 1. When nearing Gyeongbugung, spotted Sejong Center which I watched it before in Running Man ( ;) Impressed with my memory). Nearing Gyeongbukgung, many Hanbok rental shops and nice houses around. Too bad do not have much time, otherwise is a good idea to explore a little more around the area. O ya, passed by the Blue House, had a glimpse of the blue roofing ^^

Gyeongbukgung, or known as Gyeongbuk Palace. It was the main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty built in 1395. I never expected that I can be so fascinated by visiting palace, guess the details and the richness of the architecture drew me into it.



Yay! Spotted the dragon!



The Richness.

Soul in Seoul - Namsan Seoul Tower

After years of admiring Korea (thanks much to KDrama ^^), and Yay! I finally visited one of my dreamland. I don't quite understand why but this place seems to have a huge magnet that drew me much into it. A feeling of wanting more is so strong, could be too short the stay ;)

For a long while never join any tour and I know why not, the short 4 days was like a refugee run (saying so, I am still grateful for the rush). After a 6 hours midnight flight, reached Incheon Airport at 6am and the zombie visit started right after. But must be the excitement and the chilling weather, I was feeling fresh and totally left my sleep bugs behind.



I am two weeks earlier, so can only imagine the autum.



The photo bombers ^^







Happy Spider spotted ^^
