幸福 Xing Fu

What's the meaning of 幸福 in English?

Often my friends ask me this question. Till now, I don't think I have the exact answer to the question. Aha! This also proves the insufficiency English words in human beings communication. That's why there are around 70% of English words are borrowed from other languages in order to complete a better communication.

From what I understand of the word 幸福 is with the mixture feeling of happiness, content, well-supplied, well-fed, often emotionally touched...

Often the meaning doesn't come altogether, depends on the situation and context. However, something for sure, the feeling is good and I love it!!

One word that I found which I personally think it's quite close to the meaning is BLESSED.

Blessed means
-bringing happiness and thankfulness according to
-bringing happiness, pleasure, or contentment according to The American Heritage®
Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition.
-highly favored or fortunate, enjoying the bliss of heaven, characterized by happiness and good fortune according to WordNet® 3.0, © 2006 by Princeton University.

So, how do you define it?

My definition on that... check out the picture below...

A complete 'more chips more' .... =,="
A complete and super 'clean up' mandarin orange. =)

Sweets, chocolates, biscuits all over my study table, hehe...

Interfac meeting is finally over!!

Ya... Today had been really interesting enough though pretty tired.

Imagine I did it again!
Yes, if you know what I mean here. I woke up late AGAIN!!
This phenomenon happens every semester without fail.
Today, I woke up half an hour before my class starts. Started walking to school around 10 minutes before 10am (normally I set off 25 minutes before). Superb beautiful bright heart warming sunshine and thank God for the breeze. Sweat (real sweat, not =.=")! With my bag filled with lots of heavy stuff and hand fulled with heavy loaded important stuff for the day (laptop & door gifts).

By the time I reached, I couldn't see anyone from my course walking at the corridor. Peeping around the classes from the windows didn't help. Only found out that my replacement class is conducting at another block =,=" when I finally check on my notebook. Ya... More morning walk! The moment I step into the correct place, I really felt like as if I was dragged out from a lake. Really thank God that the class haven't start. There were a class in the room that ended their class late. So, I manage to get there ON TIME (whatever way I define this)!!

Utar CF is holding 2 mega events this semester. Today was the Interfaculty Meeting and PJ campus is the host.

Was preparing the door gifts a few days ago. Thank God for Anita and Megan to be there to help out Ju and me. So happy to have great friends like them =)

Spent almost more than 2 hours in Old Town at Jaya One there to do the writing, punching, sticking...

Of course, it's was not done. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I brought all the door gifts back with me and finish the finale part.

So these are the finale part where I haven't put up the strings. All being laid on my table. There goes my collection on seashells, proud of you all for being such beauties.

Not today, yesterday!! The event finally came and it's over! Am glad and happy!
The games were really testing on their vocal, observation...
Praise and worship... SKETCH!! Funny la those who acted... very spontaneous and real good jokers.
Food was great! 'Makan'.... fellowship... pictures snapping...
Altogether, I'm now really tired and need more rest! Have to prepare for the quiz on Friday and assignments duedates...

Still, it's always worth of doing His job =)

Fill my tummy with some triumph joy
Ocean of varieties with no end
Onomatopoeia of wondrous amazement
Dimly lighting the 'hungry' word

Finally the very first post is up. Had some problem with the template a few days ago. Just had it done. Guess I just have to learn more and explore it myself. *kinda proud of myself*

Had a lecture class today after the 11 days of Chinese New Year holidays. I can hardly bring my total focus with my mind still hanging on with superb yummy CNY delicacies in Ipoh. The 1 week break was really good, gave me time to relax and spend time with my family, friends and Mikko the most handsome dog. *grin*

Most of all, well, not to make it as if it sounds so supreme, I had my precious time spent with sleep and FOOD!! Wahaha!!! Had quite a lot of meat (note: no fast food), biscuits, cakes, nuts, 'chu chiong fun', 'ba gua', steamboat, tom yam bee hoon,... The few things on my food-list-i-wanna-eat-during-cny that i didn't manage to eat are new year rice cake, 'kao yok', 'lui cha'... *sob* Still, my new record Anti-Fast Food shall remain till...
Hey! Don't try to tempt me, alright?

Fast food = unhealthy + global warming + unnecessary fat......

Seriously, I personally think food has the power of cheering a person's mood. Every time I had a meal of some delicious food, it seems automatically switch my mood to 'HAPPY', just like a snap of fingers. Hmm... I get excited even when my nose senses or my eyes spot my target ^,^

Let me apply what I've learn today during Academic Writing.
Comparison: The similarity between 2 or more things.
Contrast: The differences between 2 or more things.

Subject to subject method: (Draft 1)
I can simply get delicious food in any area of Ipoh. The varieties of food is like heaven on earth. I can easily get to my destination and locate a parking. Best of all, the price is simply affordable by anyone. Whereas, in PJ, the food are not up to the standard and usually too sweet unless you go to classy cafe or restaurant. The varieties are just adopting the food from everywhere. You can hardly get any local unique food. The traffic has been well known, need to explain more on parking? You must be kidding! The price is the highest in PJ and sometimes you will find the price of food is simply half more expensive than other places in this country.

Till then, have to study for quiz on Psycholinguistics of this week. Lots to catch up and reading...... *fuh*
