This is a shot taken from the steps of Chinatown bridge. Lots of people thronging the streets buying festive goods in preparation for the Chinese new year.
This is a major event in the Tzuchi Calendar held on the 2nd Sunday of May each year. This this year it happen to be the 50th year of the foundation in promoting peace in the world. I had the precious opportunity to participate in this year event held back in the spiritual home of Tzuchi volunteers, Jing Si Hall, or literally translated as “still thoughts hall”. Such major events are usually held at the stadium or indoor exhibition halls that can accommodate the huge congregation.
Other than participating in the Celebration Service, i also served as a media control guy in one of the event stations, the Tea-serving-station. Basically, all i had to do is set up the slides and mic, control the music volume, play music at appropriate timings and etc.
The station aims to promote filial piety and encourage one to express their love and concern to their elders thru the act of serving tea to their parents, grandparents, elder. I witness many children hugging their parents, some crying, some awkward but you can see deep down they are quite touched by the atmosphere and act of filial piety. Thankful that i had the opportunity to witness and assist in making such a wonderful event possible.
Lastly, i gave away my Tzuching uniform to youth volunteers in Sri Lanka who could not afford to purchase it. I take it as a sincere prayer and blessing for the person who recieve it, hopefully he or she will be able to strive on the Bodhisattva path.
and of course not forgetting a group shot with some of the volunteers to end the day!

- 星期六，DESIGN DESIGN DESIGN。
扣掉晚上回家做research，赶projectproposal看twitterinstagramfacebook, 孝顺父母陪狗陪家人时间等等，剩下的时间就是睡觉。真对不起身边的朋友。:( 又时累到不想上学，之后终于病倒，看了三个医生都还在咳嗽（也要怪自己不戒口）。
＊＊ 对自己最大的感恩就是快要正式穿上慈济制服成为慈青的成员了！只有一点担心以后自己扛不起慈济人的责任。怎么说慈济也是一个非常著名的国际救援团体，佛教无人不知的**人间菩萨供应商** 有一定的行象。我不赌不杀不邪淫不抽烟喝酒不偷盗，只是偶尔说错话．．．
