When the seemingly impossible becomes possible…!!!

This photo was taken during a trip to Montreal, Canada, with my sister.  As we passed by the entrance of one of the malls in Montreal, Canada, two veterans were offering poppy pins in exchange for a donation. In fact, in most places throughout Canada, one can see veterans or volunteers offering the poppy pins in exchange for a donation, especially in the days approaching November 11th.

The poppy is a universal symbol of Remembrance Day — a day that commemorates the sacrifices of people in all armed conflicts. The poppy’s significance originates from when poppy fields grew over top of the graves of fallen soldiers in Flanders, France, as in the poem, In Flanders Fields, written by a Canadian, John McCrae. Thus, this poem has become synonymous with Remembrance Day and recited at many of the ceremonies.

Remembrance Day 2010, Montreal, Canada.

I’m currently addicted to this song 她說 (She Says) by JJ Lin 林俊傑. I’ve been listening to it over and over again …

I would like to thank my friend, Sonny, for sharing this video clip with me… such an inspiring speech by Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc. and of Pixar Animation Studios.

My sister, Daphne, asked me to find out the title of a Hokkien song by the group, Mayday (五月天).  She told me that it’s a very nice, non-typical Hokkien song, and she loves it so much, but she didn’t know the song’s title. So here it is, a new year gift to my dearest sis, Daphne —  志明与春娇 by 五月天. Enjoy!
