Hello! We now have the 'beautiful' season of Winter in Melbourne. I have just read a piece of news saying that there have been an increasing number of people moving from Sydney to Melbourne, as they found the lifestyle here more relaxing and the infrastructure more developed, not to mention affordable house prices (comparatively of course to Sydney). I can't agree more with most people's perspectives and as a Melbournian feel excited that international companies are shifting their branches to Melbourne as well. That means more job opportunities and hopefully more prosperity. As the weather is getting colder, we start to have Hotpot for meals at home. I guess most of you have no idea what it is; it is a Chinese cuisine, You cook yummy soup base in a pot and leave it cooking while individuals pick what they want to cook such as slice of beef, tofu, prawns etc and put them into the pot. During the whole meal, you cook and eat; you can chat to friends and family all the way through. Some people may find sharing a pot is not hygienic, there are restaurants offering every person a small individual pot. I strongly recommend this to our readers on cold days! Rachel and Kirill

主编随笔

渐渐在澳洲安定了生活,工作了,结婚了,生孩子了,期间 不乏遇到有趣的人,这些人如果出现在学生时期,那必是会挽着 手臂逛街谈天的好朋友。可是我们却没有经常联络。一开始也努 力地参加聚会,什么老乡聚会,还有妈妈群的聚会,各种节日聚 会,拍拍照,发在朋友圈,无可挑剔。只是渐渐地,这些聚会也 没怎么去了。 有时候突然想,难道是因为自己太懒了吗?还是我终于变成 了一个极度自我极度自私的人,不想麻烦别人可是也不乐意别人 麻烦我。隐隐却觉得,自己或许没那么龌龊,如果真的自己噁心 了自己,必然不会过得这么平静。 今日读了一个公众号的一篇文章,里面说到:我们的这种生活 状态,很大原因是因为社会的高度发展。我突然有种恍然大悟的 感觉。社会实在是太先进了。小时候要找人说个事,要走过几条 街道,敲门,问候,入座,嗑叨几句;渐渐地,我们打电话就能 完成很多事情;现在只要在微信上留言,就算远隔重洋的亲人朋 友也感觉生活在身边。家里缺个鸡蛋,网上可以买,外卖可以 送,实在不行开车去超市也就5分钟的距离。实在是不好意思也没 必要向邻居借。所以住在隔壁的邻居,一年也只是见上几面,说 的话不超过半小时。 日本是一个高度发展的国家,文明礼貌尊重隐私,尽量不麻 烦别人。我们这一个时代的人,渐渐向日本这种理念靠近,因为 是真的不好意思再麻烦别人了,我们想通了父母其实也不欠我们 什么,孩子也不是生下来给我们养老的,我们有经济自由,为什 么还要麻烦别人呢? 再想想,其实这种独立带来的孤独感,并没有那么可怕。小 时候怕孤独,在学校上个厕所都要拉着朋友一起,可是现在上天 入地,并不会再在意别人的眼光。孤独是一种生活的状态,带着 它不是为了装小资,不是为了夜深人静可以哭一场,它其实让我 们更接近归零的那种真实的状态。 你冷静地冷清地看着它,突然发现,孤独就跟其它所有人生 的道理一样,像“人生不如意之事十有八九”,像“每个人其实 都不一样,尊重别人的生活状态是最大的尊重”,像“孩子们都 有一个成长的过程,就算摔跟头也会成为他们青春记忆的一部 分”,它是我们成年后终于真正感知到的更加真实的人生。 它就像阳光下我们的一个影子,跟着我们,如影随形,但并 不影响我们的生活,只是会有时突然转身,看到它,呢喃一声: “啊,你在这里。”

在傲来国的花果山上有一块仙 石,一天“咔嚓”一声裂开了,从 里面蹦出一只石猴,玉皇大帝吓了 一跳,原来是石猴出世了。 他跳进水帘洞,野猴子们称他 为美猴王。高兴了一段时间后啊, 觉得自己的本领太小了,就飘扬过 海拜菩提祖师学艺。 师父给他取 名叫孙悟空,他在那里学会了七十 二变和筋斗云,又到东海龙宫夺得 宝贝如意金箍棒。 玉帝将他请上天宫,官封弼马 温。他嫌官小,打出南天门,跑回 花果山。玉帝觉得他很有本领,第 二次将他请上天宫,封他为齐天大 圣,看管蟠桃园,他喝醉酒大闹蟠 桃会又大闹天宫。 二郎神将他抓 住,一把推进太上老君的炼丹炉 里。他没被烧死,还炼成了火眼金 睛。他刚从炼丹炉里跳出来,就被 如来佛祖压在了五行山下。 孙悟空被压五百年后,唐僧取 经路过此地,救了孙悟空收他做了 大徒弟,路上先后又收了坐骑白龙 马,在高老庄收了二徒弟猪八戒, 在流沙河收了三徒弟沙僧。 在西天取经的路上,白骨精要 吃唐僧肉,孙悟空三打白骨精救了 师父,路上有被火焰山挡住了去 路,悟空凭着自己的本领使了一技 又一技,从铁扇公主那里借来了芭 蕉扇,扇灭大火继续赶路。 经过盘丝洞,唐僧被蜘蛛精用 白丝缠住险些丧命,悟空一把大火 烧了盘丝洞,又一次救了师父。 进过天竺国,玉兔精想招唐僧 为驸马,多亏嫦娥收玉兔救了唐 僧。师徒四人历经九九八十一难, 终于取回真经成功归大唐。
