S.H.E Selina Jen 任家萱 - 我的偶像


任家萱,是华语乐坛再熟悉不过的名字。

SHE在2001年出道,当时的我虽然只有11岁也已经开始听她们的歌。每每考试温书无聊时也是听她们的歌陪伴我求学的日子。上班下班时,开车总有SHE的歌一起度过塞车的无奈。大学时期,Selina 烧伤,我随着很多的歌迷一样天天追踪她的进展与新闻。看到不好的消息,和一般的歌迷一样心如刀割。看到好的消息,哪怕是一丝丝的进步,也感觉到希望的温暖环绕着整件事所牵系到的人们。

SHE一直给予我一股力量。人与人之间相处之道的学问,爱护环境的态度,勇于超越自己的坚持,克服懦弱胆怯的自己,珍惜生命当下的所有,女人更应该爱护自己的推动力。2011年,《上苍选了你:全民女孩Selina的地狱90天》出版之后,我书一到手,迫不及待在书店附近的咖啡厅用了3个小时一口气将它读完。里面无数感动的时刻,无奈地挣扎,现实逼迫的勇敢一次又一次牵系着我的心情,随着文字间流露的感受,眼眶也湿了好几次。这本书册至今还是在我书架上,珍惜珍藏的一本。

日子渐渐过去,一年复一年看见Selina越来越好,越来越成熟,心里很开心。虽然我们看的都是媒体上的报道,脸书上的更新,但是人生过日子不就是如此,像是看着老朋友的更新,只要大家好好的,心就暖暖的。每每看到他们给的新资讯,不同国家的美景,抱着正能量不断积极往前进,也鼓励着我继续努力往梦想前进,超越自己,做得更好。

前天晚上睡前,看见Selina宣布离婚的消息,一看到还以为是看错了,点进去之后我都呆了。怎么会这样呢?!心情一下子沉重了下来,几天下来心情还是没有平复。我们对于爱情的希望,信任爱情的存在,他们无疑是华语乐坛的最佳典范之一。我不禁感慨,爱情或许莫过于如此,夫妻或许需要多一点缘分。时间的长久不等于爱情的浓度,晃一晃九年的时间又算得了什么。感情、友情、亲情都需要努力,需要经营,需要时间去灌溉。忙于生活,忙于物质的我们,现实生活中比比皆是。谁能像全民女孩一样勇敢,诚实的面对自己的感受。对于遥遥无期的辛福美满,选择信任对方诚实开朗豁然面对。曾经对婚姻满是憧憬的女孩步上离婚的道路。上苍选了的女孩还是一样勇敢,一样正视问题。虽说请勿惋惜,仍忍不住心痛。生命贵于价值,我真心期待看见你们都过得好好的,好好珍惜生命赋予我们的一切,活得精彩。

SHE 的故事是人生实实在在的经历。不求完美,贵在一起面对克服,相伴相随努力成长的情谊。这几天都看到大家写文抒发自己的想法,我想无论是铁粉还是有关注的人们,大家心里都是一样的心情吧。

人生就是如此。有聚有散,天无不散之宴席。期待下一篇新篇章的开始。加油!



加油Selina!一起期待迎接更美好的未来!

A Trip to Perak - Program Transformasi Minda (PTM) & Kellie's Castle

Hello everyone!

It has been a year since I last updated the blog. Wow. No, I didn't forget about my blog.
Life has been really hectic. But I still do read and reply emails and comments from you guys. Thanks for writing to me :)

Last June, I completed my hospital training and finally moved back to hometown. Moving back to hometown was emotional, exciting and definitely a joyful one. I finally get to stay together with my parents again, setting up a small home office for myself, spending more quality time with friends. Really glad that this day has finally come.

In November, I went to Perak with my friends to attend Program Transformasi Minda in KSKB Ulu Kinta. It was one week course with accommodation provided in the college. We had a series of talks from different speakers and a sketch/presentation at the end of the program by the participants. This also marks the end of our PRP year and I feel so blessed that we are able to have an enjoyable trip before heading to the new working place.

Meeting new friends!

 When the Monashians reunite!


We went to Kellie's Castle (Kellie's Folly) before heading back to Kuala Lumpur. Kellie's Castle was meant to be a home away from home for Scottish Planter, William Kellie Smith in the 20th Century. It was said that this castle is either a gift for his wife or a home for his son. Construction of this unique castle began in 1915. However, it came to an abrupt halt with Kellie's sudden death in 1926. Recently, efforts have been made by the Perak State Government to rescue this magnificent structure from the encroaching foliage. The castle is situated on the way to Batu Gajah town at the Kinta Kellas Rubber Estate, about a 30-minute drive and 14km south of Ipoh City.
