Winter Grey
灰色冬季

Grey has been THE new black this winter. It’s such a humble shade that can compromise well with any other colours. Since this outfit has many different elements playing together, I’d rather go for a monochromatic look with simple and straightforward colour palette - grey, black and white.

灰色在这个冬季可谓是最当红的颜色了。它虽然高雅但又不张扬,是非常百搭的色调。因为这身衣服有很多单品都很抢眼,所以我还是决定选择比较单一和直接的色盘-灰,白,黑来。

Right now, I’m about to share something very personal. The night before, I was sent by the ambulance to an emergency centre due to a serious migraine and hyperventilation situation. This breakdown really is a wake-up call to me. My mom died from cancer when I was only 14 years old. She not only was an amazing mom and wife, but also a dedicated and goal-oriented superwoman. From what I could remember though, she always put everything as her priority except herself and her health. After she passed away, I promised myself that I’d never go down her path. However, lately, I’ve been keeping myself super busy- juggling with millions of things at the same time. So this hospital visit really gave me a lesson. Once someone told me a metaphor: “Health is the number ’1′ and the following ’0s’ could mean wealth, successful career and more. The more 0s are following, the bigger number it gets which means the better quality of life you might have, but when the ’1′ is gone, the rest of the 0s then mean nothing.”

现在呢,我要分享一些非常私人的东西。前天晚上,由于剧烈的偏头痛和严重的呼吸不流畅,我被救护车送到了医院。这给我敲响了警钟。我妈妈在我十四岁时由于癌症去世了。她不仅是一位很棒的母亲和妻子,同时也是一个非常具有头脑和志向,能干敢干的女强人。但是我记得她从来都没把自己的身体当回事,总是把除了身体之外的事情作为首要任务。所以她离去后,我告诉自己一定不要走妈妈走过的路。不过,最近这段时间,我忙得焦头烂额,身兼数职。所以这次去医院对我来说确实是个教训。曾经有个人告诉我:1代表着健康,后面的无数个零可以代表财富,事业等等,但是如果1不见了,所有的0就化为虚有了。

Life can be very chaotic whether we are in our 20s, 30s or 40s. We could be caught up with many things at the same time- working, studying, volunteering, building a career, running errands for the family…the list can go on and on. However, no matter how busy we get, we should slow down and take sometime to rest and recharge. We can’t take care of anybody/anything else if we can’t even take care of ourselves. So through this lesson of mine, I highly encourage each one of you to take care of yourself. Health is important.

无论是在20,30, 还是40的年龄阶段,生活中都有各种杂七杂八的事情会让我们停不下来-工作,学习,做义工,事业,家庭琐事等等。不过,无论我们有多忙,事情有多少,我们都应该学会停下来给自己一些休息和充电的时间,因为如果我们不能照顾好自己的话,就别提照顾别人或者完成其他事情了。所以通过我的这次经历,我希望能鼓励大家多多珍惜自己的身体。健康最重要。
