Decorations for tomorrow's wedding

Tomorrow Dennis and Linlin will get married. Of course we needed to decorate their home a bit, so we took about 120 balloons and stood in the pouring rain attaching them to a pole. Fun fun fun :) We only hope the weather will be a bit better tomorrow, and we hope our balloons won't get blown away during the night..........

Getting the balloons from Siny's home, take a good look at our car on the left:

Dutch people and wooden shoes

What a fun I had today! We had a party at work and went outside to play golf. But not just ordinary golf. We played boerengolf! That's 'country golf' or name it as you like it. The game is so stupid, it's really funny. Hit the (big) ball with a wooden shoe on a stick and put it in the bucket in the ground some 100 meters away. Playing in teams, it makes this really funny and we laughed our heads off! Just watch the pictures and see for yourself. Team spirits were high today :P

The equipment:

My collegues:

I'm going to hit this ball and I'm being judged:

So hey, let's make this clear once and for all: Not all Dutch people walk on wooden shoes, some play golf with them! ;)

Forgives your mistakes 原諒你的過錯
Gives unconditionally 無條件地過錯
Helps you 幫助你
Invites you over 邀請你
Just "be" with you 靜靜地在你的身旁
Keeps you close at heart 靠近你的心

Loves you for who you are 因你原來的樣子而愛你
Makes a difference in your life 使你的生活與以往不同
Never judges 不間斷
Offers support 支持你
Picks you up 扶你一把
Quiets your fears 止息你的懼怕

Who knows.....

Sometimes I get or find beautiful poems or sayings. This one I got from a friend. I've translated it into English and German, because there are hardly ever Dutch visiters here anyway.


Wie weet, en weet dat hij weet, is een meester.
Wie weet, en niet weet dat hij weet, heeft een meester nodig.
Wie niet weet, en weet dat hij niet weet, heeft liefde nodig.
En wie niet weet, en niet weet dat hij niet weet, die is verloren

Who knows, and knows that he knows, is a master
Who knows, and don't know that he knows, needs a master
Who doesn't know, and knows that he doesn't know, needs love
And who doesn't know, and doesn't know that he doesn't know, is lost

Wer weißt, und weißt das er weißt, ist ein Meister
Wer weißt, und nicht weißt das er weißt, braucht einen Meister
Wer nicht weißt, und weißt das er nicht weißt, braucht Liebe
Und wer nicht weißt, und nicht weißt das er nicht weißt, ist verloren

Fluffy greetings

Last week Salman sent me some new pictures from Fluf.
Fluf was celebrating the Mid Autumn Festival in Hong Kong and had some mooncakes. Oh, I want to eat mooncakes with Gloria as well!! One of my dreams is a holiday to Hong Kong, but it's terribly expensive and I really don't know when I'll be able to go. Anyway, thanks for the pics Salman!

@Salman/Gloria: 我想要慶祝中間秋天節日與您!!
is that correct?

OMG... I have a blog.....

What the hell do I need a blog for????? Well, I really don't know actually. But on the other hand, it's funny as well, so why not? Browsing the net made me understand I'm a writer, and I realised I wanted to share my silly thoughts with the world (that's you yeah). Or anyway, that's what a test said. I took the Blogging Personality Quiz at About Web logs and it says I am:

The Writer
Words captivate me. And, I like to capture words. Blogging enables me to write often. It also provides a place for me to share what I write with a reading public. I can be funny, inspiring, intelligent, cynical, or morbid. It doesn't matter what I write about in my blog. It only matters that I write.

Well, so here it is, my blog. And I'll write, cause that matters. Or so it seems...
Have fun with it ;)
