effective.people. 七個有績效人的習慣

you normally don't have high hope on corporate training and normally the criteria for the training is the location.  this training has the most impact in your life. the content of the training is not entirely new but the impact you received is rather powerful and long lasting. it's like a mirror that force you into self examine of your life, life mission, your interaction with others, with the society and with God. it's really food for thought overflow!
我對公司培訓的期望一般都不大. 但今次的培訓卻深深的影響了我的人生目標、觀點。雖然不能說內容全新、其實很多習慣自己都早已應用在生活中、但課程的設計卻像一面鏡子、讓我深深的自我反省、人與人,人與社會的互動、人與神的關係。感觸良多。
重要但不緊迫是我必須做好的事、

royal.china.皇.朝




you have been feasting on chinese this trip. you waited for almost an hour at royal china before you're seated.  you always thought lowlands has the best chinese dim sum in europe but you're wrong.  royal china has brought it to the next higher level.  the dim sum here is very authentic, taste of hong kong but not greasy. the interior of the restaurant is also very classy unlike any of the restaurants in china town area.  dim sum were divinely made, dainty like a piece of art.

這一趟真的是每餐都吃中餐耶!在皇朝等位等了30分鐘才有的吃。我一直以為荷蘭的粵式喝茶是歐洲最美味的。嚐到皇朝點心才發現一山還有一山高。這裏的點心很地道香港口味、卻沒有一般港式點心茶樓的油膩、室內佈置很得體、別於一般唐人街的餐館。點心做的很精緻、細巧。吃起來很高貴、可口。
叉燒酥、蛋撻、韭菜蝦餃、芋角、香炸芝麻蝦卷、四川餃、香煎蘿蔔糕、鳳爪、珍珠糯米雞、鹹水角都好好吃喔!份量正好三分一籠、每人一份、點到為止、無須吃到撐飽。

brown's afternoon tea::布朗酒店英式下午茶








had the most authentic english afternoon tea here in brown's.  you ordered a tea-tox set while your friend ordered a classical set.  it's a leisure afternoon sipping tea, catching up, munching small bites.  both tea sets are exquisite in its own way, though you personally prefer the tea-tox set.

在這裡享受了很地道的下午茶口味。全英式的、幾乎沒有遊客到來(除了我以外)。點了一道傳統英式和健康式下午茶。在英式茶廳、慢慢的品嚐美食、品茶。漫活英倫文化。這兩套下午茶點都各有其特色。個人喜歡健康式下午茶、但也吃了不少傳統口味的。


after the tea, you walk to bustling west end and back to the china town area, this is a very familiar area for you, while browsing the shops/restaurants, you couldn't resist the temptation and succumb to a bowl of savory tofu curd and a big steam bun, so yummy!

午茶後蹓躂倫敦市中心、感覺很親切、很熟悉。蹓躂到唐人街看到豆腐花兩人又忍不住進去吃了一碗鹹辣豆花和一個大菜肉包。超好吃喔!
late dinner at gold mines in bayswater/queensway area.  meeting up another two friends and here you had another delicious meal confluent of cantonese and malaysian chinese flavors.
約了另兩位朋友一起在金城樓吃了晚餐、點了幾道小菜、馬來西亞和粵菜口味,都很好吃。參巴羊角豆、粵式烤鴨、清炒空心菜、節瓜粉絲煲、金沙蝦等等。今天胃口不淺、超大飽口福、太過分了。

mudam







mudam is a contemporary art museum just opposite where you lodged whenever you're in luxembourg. you seized the moment during lunch hour on a not too busy afternoon and pay a visit. the architecture is great though there's not too much to see exhibition wise.  despite of that, it has a great canteen and since your main purpose is to have your lunch there, you did enjoy your leisure lunch hour very much.
===

mudam是一家藝術博物館、其實位於下榻飯店的對面。趁一天不用去客戶那裏、午餐時間參訪了一下。博物館內的展覽內容不多、館內也沒有很明確的標示或解說展覽內容。
博物館的建築設計和風格我個人還是蠻喜歡的。亮潔、運用陽光和玻璃窗及天花板來導光。其中一個教堂展覽還蠻喜歡。
在館內的咖啡館點了一份盧森堡/法國式的簡餐、喜歡館內的藝術氣氛。一邊翻看館內的藝術雜誌、一邊用餐、慢慢的喝卡布基諾。這就是城市綠洲吧!在這裡很紓壓、工作上的壓力暫時緩解。心裡對自己說再過一週一切就恢復正常了。

luexmbourg master chef restaurant::盧森堡大師級餐廳





another trip to luxembourg, and you chance into a restaurant that turned out to be a delightful dinner.  a very modern and contemporary restaurant that has a 2003 france gold Champlain patisserie chef working on the dessert. you're spoil!
===

盧森堡我又去了一趟。原先想吃的餐廳爆滿、不經意吃了一家附近的餐廳、全玻璃窗的靠窗位置、料理很時髦、摩登、雖然只點了主菜、上菜的擺設非常鮮豔。可以說是色香味俱全、把我的味蕾帶到另一個境界。甜點更上一層樓。問了侍應生才發現主廚和甜品師的來頭不小。甜品師更是2003年法國甜品大賽的冠軍得主。難怪我的甜品一看就知道是出於大師的傑作。很慶幸可以在無意之間品嚐了盧森堡的美食。

bright and sunny lake como ::晴天霹靂的科莫湖







sunshine after the rain snow, como is in spring splendor mood. you walk to the lake front after breakfast and you're definitely excited to see the different facets of como.  all the mountains and italian alps unveiled in front of you. along with the mansions and villas along the lake front. como is definitely a slice of paradise for the italian.  you just seize your moment to soak in the weather, senery and people watching. it's so different from yesterday and in fact you've seen the best of lake como in two distinct seasons.
as you walk towards the city, you stopped briefly at the electric life, a sculpture erected in the middle of the lake. it's such a playful sculpture with the reflection of the lake, sky and mountain and the reflection is constantly changing. this never cease to amaze you as the eye sculpture in chicago.
too bad you have to bid farewell to lake como as you have a flight to catch. but you're re-energize and recharge after the weekend. spending time with the nature always bring you closer to God.
goodbye lake como, if there's another chance, we'll meet again.

俗話說雨(雪)過天晴。經過了一天一夜的風雪後、今晨又回春了而且是放晴式的天空。早餐後就往科莫市的西面走、很快就到達湖畔。天氣太好了、山脈也完全顯示在我眼前。這可是跟昨天完全不一樣的科莫湖耶!帶起了興奮的心情繼續走、湖畔有幾家知名的別墅、論地段、景色也太令人羨慕了、這裡就是人間仙境、羨慕極了!
electriclife 藝術雕像就建在湖中央。它是為了紀念電力研發者a。 volt 而設立的。雕像用了類似玻璃倒映週邊的風景、令我想起了芝加哥公園的雲雕像 the eye、運用一樣的原理來反射周邊的建築物。在湖中央逗留了很久、天氣超好、不冷不熱、標準春天氣節。和雕像互動、玩樂溝通、拍攝。雲層的變化帶來了不少景色、可惜時間不多、離別雕像往酒店方向走、、貪吃的我在酒店附近的一家糕點咖啡廳、點了一杯卡布吉諾和一個開心果小甜點在座享用後才甘心回酒店取行李。
我得乘坐下午一點一刻的火車回米蘭。再次踏上月台、經過了兩天兩夜大自然的調洗、和上帝零距離的接觸後心情平靜了很多。難怪大家都說旅遊可以協調心情、休息是為了走更長遠的路。
掰掰囉!科莫湖、有機會、有緣咱們再見!

dreamy.ferry.journey



back to bellagio and you decided to return to como with ferry. while waiting for the scheduled departure, you hopped into another cafe and indulge yourself with coffee and sweets. it's too cold after all and the ferry journey back to como is so dreamy. you could hardly see anything on in the boat, certainly not the mountains surrounding the lake, but it's an amazing experience and you're thankful.
