跟上时代的步伐

今天在报章上读了这一则短篇文章。

作者的妈妈说,她有个年纪相仿的朋友,连贴在物品上的价格标签都不会看,甚至会看错。

一包鱼鳔是$24.00,这位女士却把它看成$2.40,以为好便宜哦!

听起来好象似乎有一点不可思议,是不是?

她不是看错,而是不太会看。

没错,看起来那么如此简单的标签,居然还有人看不太懂,本来就觉得有点不可思议!

可是作者的妈妈分析说,以前她都是上菜市场,价钱都是用讲的,没有标签,根本不需要看的。试想想,如果一个人几十年来都是在菜市场上买菜的话,真的看不懂标价,也不是完全没有可能!

听起来,有道理。

如今时代进步的步伐,我们可以用"飞"这个字来形容。稍微慢了一些,可能就要跨一大步去衔接。因为小时候家境不好,没钱读书识字的关系,看看周围的环境,现在有多少年长的新加坡人是不会乘搭地铁列车,不会用提款机提钱,不晓得上网际网络是在做什么,不知道布落格 --blog---是什么东西来的,更不懂为什么家中子女和孙子都会为Facebook而疯狂

其实除非是没有学习环境,不然,只要有想法,想要改变态度,有心去学,还是能够跟得上的。重点是看你要不要,觉的重不重要。

就像一位auntie所说:It’s fine not to follow the bird. But PLEASE, do pace along with the duck tour. 😀

Back at alma mater this morning, attending YTSS 31st Speech Day Prize-giving Ceremony as an invited guest. The theme is "Towards the Future". #ytss #yishun #yishuntownsecsch #neesooneast #singapore #singaporean #ytzens #march2017 #fridaymorning #exstudent Given my face, yes I know I somehow still look like a schooling boy rather than a suave-looking Oppa.. #singapore #singaporean #lgclass #asia #workingclass #style #selfie #march2017 Drank 4 glasses of heineken beer tonight, with another 2 guys. Tuesday post-dinner drinks. #heinekenbeer #singapore #march2017 #coffeeshop #singaporean 邱德保医院刚翻新装修好食阁,把它变成两层楼式、以便腾出更多空间给前来填饱肚子的访客。楼上的座椅装潢好舒适!你可以眺望看到义顺湖! 我觉得这是一个吃了饭后温书、讨论工作、或拍拖谈心的好地方。

A newly renovated foodcourt at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. It has just been upgraded to a 2-storey one, creating more spaces for hospital visitors who come here for food. Talking about customer experience! The benches and tables upstairs are so nice. The warm yellow lights! Able to see the Yishun Lake. I find it a conducive spot for work discussion, studying as well as for dating. lol. #ktph #khooteckpuathospital #yishun #singapore #sg #asia #sgfood #sgig #instasg #lgclass #march2017 Took alone walk around Marina Bay area last night.
