超越神奇宝贝的喜悦

因为某些原因,今天必须到学校把小弟带回家。

到了早上上学时段、中午放学时段、傍晚下班时段,电梯经常会在不同楼层停一停。而因为住在十五楼的关系,无论是要乘搭电梯到一楼或十五楼,时间都会比起其他时段相对的久一点。

出门时,电梯在五楼停下,一位印度籍的妇女推着一辆蓝色的脚踏车,像是怕耽误我时间,努力快速地挤进电梯里,而后面紧跟着的是两手拿着印度饼干的女儿。

虽然脚踏车后方有个像夹鼠器的座位,快抵达一楼时,妈妈却抱起女儿,把她放置在身前。女儿很熟练,但握着饼干的手差点儿打到我的脸。那对充满“不好意思”的眼睛,又大又圆。脑袋的线卡了一下,然后莫名其妙地竖起大拇指说了句“it’s ok”。电梯门这时开了,但时间足够让左耳戴着耳机的我清楚地听见妈妈笑着说“Thank you”。好好听。

电梯门外,站着一位右脚有残疾的马来族老奶奶。走出电梯后,我看着她右手按着按钮,身体慢慢的移进电梯里。脑中想起近期发生的电梯事故,便上前帮她按着电梯按钮。进入电梯后,老奶奶把身体转向站在门外的我,微笑地说了一句“Thank you”。(天,今天是什么日子)我点了点头,往巴士站走去。而心中的那份喜悦是无论抓了多少只神奇宝贝都无法超越的。

最后:嘿新加坡,生日快乐:)

Happy birthday to you PinkOlifant!

Have not been blogging for quite some time as school has really occupied (and it’s still occupying) most of my time. Report after report, project after project.

Happy to have received many well wishes from my family and friends. Even though it’s just another day, it’s really good to know that your friends actually remember you. After each crossing, friends may remain friends on social media, but you know some friends will drift apart, their posts will appear lesser and lesser on newsfeed (you only have that amount of time to scroll through it everyday and social media hopes that you see the posts from your closest ones), and one day when you meet him or her on the street, you two may not even recognize one another.

So, it’s really good to know that they are still aware and acknowledge your existence. And it’s a good opportunity for you to glance through who they are and peep a little at their timeline to try and catch up a bit with their lives.

Life being life, people come and go. You and I too.

好久没更新博客了,多数的时间都花在写报告、赶作业上。大学这四年来都是如此。

收到许多好友发来的生日祝语,心中充满感激。虽然今天只不过是活在地球上的另外一天,收到祝语,知道朋友们还记得你这位朋友还是感觉挺幸福的。人生的交叉口遇到过不少朋友,但还会保持联络的又剩几个呢?

虽然在社交媒体上仍然是朋友,也许某天在街角碰头也未必认得出对方。虽然你的存在无需任何人的确认,但偶尔的一个“赞”和“生日快乐”真的会让你快乐。

来到这个世界,然后就是离开这个世界。

有些人经过我身旁住在我脑中在我心里钻洞,有些人变成相片堆在角落灰尘像雪一般冰冻
