人生匆匆几十年

Time flies... To start that in my final post of 2012 sounds a bit "too normal". Then I remember a phrase while listening to 988 on the way back from work last week and thought it was quite meaningful at this juncture of the year...

人生匆匆几十年

Yup... As if year after year is not fast enough, reflecting back what happened in 2012 does make the above statement seems logical. To some, 2012 is just another year in life. To many others, it's a year of jubilation (The Queen), Inspiring A Generation (London 2012) and last but not least, a year full of challenges and disappointments (me :).

Wasn't a year to remember, but shouldn't be a year to forget as well. The past 365 days will go down to "my" history book as "The" 2012. And like a lyric from (who else) Jacky Cheung's song, "... Remember the darkest hour, is just before the dawn..." should move things more positively towards 2013... The year of the Snake :)

Looking forward in 2013 if I need to sum up in a word, it will be a year of "Inevitable". NO, No... I didn't copy it from Chanel or that Brad Pitt dude :) Of course I can't say anything more than that for now, but for sure it will be.

Inevitably, (see...) 2013 will past by as fast as any other years (technically). And if we have and we should live it with fun, I would like to add "enrichment" in 2013. 

Have an enriched fun 2013 to all my friends, families, special ones, friendly competitors and last but not least, YOU. :)

A few pictures I quickly gathered on my pc and hope I will write more often in the coming year...

The One With Gay Marriages in England


Lots of talks in town these days centered around Gay (& Lesbian) marriages in England and particularly whether Churches of England are allowed to marry Gay couples...

Amongst many other things I think the government of UK is doing wrong, they might have done this right based on the report from BBC on this link;

"Gay Marriage to be illegal in Church of England"
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-20680924

I am not super religious or has any hatred towards Gay couples. And to set it straight I'm a Buddhists and many of my friends are Gays. But if you want a religious body to consent to something which clearly stating a marriage is between a man and a woman, then I think the government is right to prevent Churches in England to marry you...

Maybe the government fall short in proposing a clear legal process to recognise gay couples. But if you want the Church of England to marry a gay couple is like asking a Muslim to eat pork! I'm not saying that eating pork is right or wrong but if you want to be a Muslim, then don't eat pork! And if you really like to eat pork then don't call yourself Muslim and eat in the mosque! :)

Just my thoughts...
