Month: April 2006

Going home for the weekends has become almost a kind of short weekly vacation for me.

Though I am exceedignly busy and pre-occupied with the intellectual challenges at Pace five days in a row, those short two days home provide me with much needed and renewed energy and creativity, putting it all into the right perspective.

Work is great, but being home is more than fantastic. Family life has become a prized possession which should never ever be underestimated, nore in my case will it ever be.

In the new digital media world, consumer electronics, mobile devices and the personal computer will seamlessly interact with each other and together greatly enhance the consumer experience with rich media content from everywhere at anytime.

Finally by the end of each week just as I am getting used to the fact that everyone drives on the left side of the road, I come back home for the weekend and have to readjust my bearings again to believe that people are really driving on the right side of the road.

In many ways, during the adjustment period transitioning from left to right or from right to left, it's like living in a nebulous mirror world. The world of moving automobiles is slightly skewed and uncertain.

When crossing the street am I supposed to look to the left or should I look to the right?

Since I value my life quite highly and would prefer to survive long enough to achieve yet another challenging goal in life, I choose to swing my head back and forth three times from left to right and from right to left and back again, just in case.

Even if it makes me look like an idiot or an overly uncertain person.

After a long day of work, I figured it would be nice to take an extended evening stroll and discover some of the surrounding area.

Looking at the map of the area around my hotel in Shipley, I randomly jabbed my finger downwards and decided that Swain Hill looked like a nice place to visit.

Half an hour later I was huffing and puffing up the steep hill, completely lost between one of the hidden crooks of a zigzag road.

This is just too good to be true.

This week I learned what knackered means, which depending on the context used is British slang for one the following:

  • Tired, really exhausted
  • Broken or defective
  • Completely drunk
