Seoul Searching – The Planning …

The more I “travel”, the more I feel that it is just like a project. In other words, I spent hell lot of time to read dozens of travel magazines, guides and web sites. Then make out a plan of the trip, from where to eat the breakfast, to where to go in the morning, then the lunch, then the afternoon itinerary etc. etc. The actual holiday turns out is just an “execution” of the plan, but not “traveling” or “relaxing” at all.

So the Seoul trip starts with “only” 8 travel guides …

By the time I step into the airplane, I actually already understand some bits of Seoul’s history, and my mind is spinning with where to get the hotel bus, and where shall I go right after check-in my room.

In a word … sick.

Beautiful Poems

In movies “Dead Poets Society”, and “Four Weddings and One Funeral ” there are two poems I liked very much. And of course, they are very well known ones as well …

Just an excerpt …

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever; I was wrong.

Simple, beautiful but emotional …

Carpe diem – Seize the Day

There are not many movies I can watch many many times … and still want to watch it again. One is the Dead Poets Society (one of the many others is the Groundhog Day) …

The Cable TV just aired the Dead Poets Society tonight again and it was sooooo touching and moving … it simply was one of the most influential films I had ever watched.

If you haven’t seen it, you probably should. It is uplifting and gloriously beautiful.

Ontario – Niagara Fall

Clearly it is one of the most visted places in Canada (the view is good only from the Canada side …) and the first thing come to the visitors’ mind after seeing the fall should be “how insignificant am I ?”

My last visit there was with an one very good old friend. He is simply one of the few brightest guys I ever met … but since he decided to work in Canada, we have one less great CTO in town.

Ontario – The Good Old Days

I suppose I can call Canada my second home as I was there before for my high-school and university studies. Everything now seems to be very remote but believe it or not, I still can remember all the delicious foods, in the good old days …

The Harvey’s burger with all the toppings; the hot mesh potato with beef gravy that no restaurant in town can do; the lasagna with yummy tomato meat saurce, and of course the all-you-can-eat salad bar in Ponderosa … Those were beautiful food, as beautiful as the night-scene of Toronto.
