I am the “shadow” this time

  The first major release of the EE project is to commence this weekend, and I am assigned the role to shadow the whole team — as a "ranger" or "fire fighter" who will provide the team assistance whenever necessary through … Continue reading

多问一句话

  有时候,多问一句话,会带来意想不到的效果.前两天买电视的经历,就让我深切地感受了一回.   星期五,从FUTURESHOP的网站看到自己喜欢的SAMSUN的LED电视UN55B7000降价$1000销售,非常开心,准备星期天去买.   星期六,和一好友聊天,谈到了此事,就多问了一句,是否值得买.他说,得马上买,如果还能买到,算你有运气.我倆马上开车到最近的FUTURESHOP店,发现果然脱销了.嗨!   这时候一个店员说,他们还有高一点的型号UN55B7100,也在降价销售,但贵$200.我开玩笑地多问了一句.能不能按7000的价格卖一台7100给我.出乎意料,他居然说行.我忽然有点儿心虚,就又问道,明天来还可以吗?他又说可以.   回到家上网一阵狂搜,发现7100性能和价格确是略略高于7000.星期日就和妻一块儿去买.   准备付款时,那店员建议我买保险,因为SAMSUN只保一年而已.FUTURESHOP则可以保四年,而且要保的范围更广而便利.但要$450,即令是两年也要$350.我就多问了他一句话,能不能给我一个$100左右的简单些的两年保险,因为通常来讲,夜晶类电视如果出问题,一般在两年之内.他说要去和他的经理商量一下.几分钟后,他回来说,他们同意给我四年的保险,只要$150.我二话没说,掏出信用卡,付款给他.   这一切也许真的不算什么,毕竟电子产品的价格总是在下降的.也许一年以后,价格就是这样或者更低.但有时多问一句话,确实能让我们在合理的范围内受益.为什么不试一试呢?   对类似与我这样一向以"直来直去"态度购物的男人,尤其如此.

Thankfully Learned: “You’re Basically Healthy”

  It was a relief being informed the foregoing by Dr. T, even though she added that there was a minor issue for each of us.   We’re very grateful of Lord’s faithfulness, and as well the supports from friends.

Facing an unknown: will know the results tomorrow

It is well with my soul — 我心灵,得安宁

       When dark clouds float into the sky from the horizon,          when shadow seems casting over,                    I have been taught to say                            "It is well with my soul".     When the clouds’re dispersed,          when the Sun shines … Continue reading
