Hi Everyone,

Bây giờ là 8:22pm, Tuesday 12/06/2207... bây giờ nhiệt độ ở ngoài chắc không quá 1-2C... Ở Canberra vừa bắt đầu vào mùa Winter vào đầu tháng nầy, nhiệt độ, nói chung, trung bình ban ngày khoảng từ 9-13C, còn ban đêm khoảng từ -4-0C... Đây là cái mùa lạnh nhất trong năm, nhưng ngược lại cũng là cái mùa rất dễ chịu... nói chung, người dân ở Canberra thích lạnh hơn thích nóng.... lạnh mình còn chùm thêm áo quần được, còn nóng thì dù có "sexy" cho lắm, cũng phải giữ lại một miếng vải dính trên mình của mình???? hahaha....

Tuần nay, tui bắt đầu từ từ trở lại sinh sống "bình thường" vì anh chàng "lính mới" - Flynn - cũng bắt đầu quen nước quen cái.... Hôm qua, là ngày Public Holiday của nước Úc, là ngày sinh nhật của Nữ-Hoàng Anh Quốc.... do đó, tui organise để nghỉ ở nhà, để đi chơi... nhưng rốt cuộc, buổi chiều, tui cũng phải trở lại shop để làm, vì anh chàng Flynn trở bị bệnh cảm cúm bất thình lình, trong khi những nhân viên còn lại đã đi chơi xa... chỉ còn lại tui và anh chàng Stephen... anh làm 8hrs, còn tui backup cho Flynn, làm 4hrs.

Vì là ngày Public Holiday vào Monday, nên việc unload hàng hóa của tui cũng bị delay một ngày, có nghĩa là tui phải đến shop vào sáng ngày mai thật sớm để cùng các nhân viên khác unload hàng hóa cho tuần nầy.

Tui do dự, không biết lấy cái tựa email nầy là:

Either: The Five People You Meet In Heaven
or: All endings are also beginnings

vì hai cái tựa nầy đều rất là có ý nghĩa, anyway, tui đánh bài cào, theo kiểu "Love Me or Love Me Not"... và chọn lấy một trong hai cái tựa nầy...

Tui mở đầu bằng những câu chuyện vui trong cuốn Reader's Digest June 2007, trong phần "Laughter, The Best Medicine", page 121...

"On her first flight, an elderly woman kept peering out of the window at the blinking wing-tip light. Finally, she called a flight attendant and said, "I'm sorry to bother you, but I think you should inform the pilot that left-turn indicator is still on."

and....

Title: Doctor, Doctor

FUNNY.... Can I have a second opinion?
Doc: Come back tomorrow.

FUNNIER... My son swallowed a roll film.
Doc: Let's wait and see what develops.

FUNNIEST... I feel like a dog.
Doc: How long has this been goin on?
Patient: Since I was a puppy.

hahaha......hahaha......

and how about this....In the section, "Life's Like That" page 99...

My mother-in-law's dog was overweight, so the vet (BS thú y) prescribed diet pills. On the return visit, the dog's weight was unchanged. The vet asked if there was a problem getting the dog to take the pills.

"No," my mother-in-law replied. "I hide them in her ice-cream." - Vi Knutson

Cái email nầy tui viết trên cái máy PC cũ, tối hôm qua, tui ở nhà, tui hì hục tháo hết nó ra, lau chùi cẩn thận rồi ráp nó lại... may mắn thay, everything is working... nên tui re-installed nó lại vị trí cũ trong phòng family room của tui... và vì phải xài cái new version VN'ese software hôm qua, rồi hôm nay, xài cái version cũ, nên việc typing có phần hơi "funny" một tí.... Anyway, I think it should be OK.

Tháng nay, tui read được nhiều cuốn sách rất hay, tui viết xuống cho các bạn xem, nếu các bạn thích, nên bỏ ít thì giờ read nó....

  1. "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" của nhà văn Mitch Albom - Author of the International Bestseller of the book "Tuesday With Morrie"tui copy xuống vài đoạn phê bình cho các bạn read cho vui...

    "All endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time...."

    On his eithy-third birthday, Eddie, alonely war veteran, dies in a tragic accident trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. WIth his final vreath, he feels two small hands in his - and then nothing. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden but a place where your earthy life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people may have been loved ones or distant strangers. Yet each of them changed your path for ever:

    "A book with a genuine power to stir and comfort its readers" - New York Times

    "A miracle of a book... delighful and though-provoking" - Irish Examnier

    "Five people is a powerful book... like Eddie, Albom has touched the lives of a lot of people he never even knew" - Times

    "This book is a gift to the soul" - Amy Tan

    Cuốn sách thật là hay về đạo lý.... về cuộc sống làm người... tui chép một đoạn xuống cho các bạn read nhe...

    From page 36-38...

    ""Where do you think?" the Blue Man asked, "Heaven."

    No! Eddie shook his head violently. NO! The Blue Man seemed amused.

    "No? It can't be heaven?" he said. "Why? Because this is where you grew up?"

    Eddie mouthed the word YES.

    "Ah." The Blue Man nodded. "Well. People often be little the place where they were born. But heaven can be found in the most unlikely corners. And heaven itself has many steps. This, for me, is the second. And for you the first."

    He led Eddie through the park, passing cigar shops and sousage stands and the "flat joints," where suckers lost their nickels and dimes.

    Heaven? Eddie though. Ridiculous. He had spent most of his adult life trying to get away from Ruby Pier. It was an amusement park, that's all, a place to scream and get wet and trade your dollars for kewpie dolls. The thought that this was some kind of blessed resting place was beyond his imagination.

    He tried again to speak, and this time he heard a small grunt from his chest. The Blue Man turned.

    "Your voice will come. We all go through the same thing. You can not talk when you first arrive."

    He smiled. "It helps you listen."

    THERE ARE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN," The Blue Man suddently said. "Each of us was in your life for a reason. You may not have known the reason at the time, and that is what heaven is for. For understanding your life on earth."

    Eddie looked confused.

    "People think heaven as a paradise garden, a place where they can float on clouds and laze in rivers and mountains. But scenery without solace is meaningless."

    "This is the greatest gift God can give you: To understand what happended in your life. To have it explained. It is the peace you have been searching for."

    Eddie coughed, trying to bring up his voice. He was tired of being silent.

    "I am your first person, Edward. When I died, my life was illuminated by five others, and then I came here to wait for you, to stand in your life, to tell you my story, which becomes part of your. There will be others for you, too. Some you knew, maybe some you didn't. But they all crossed your path before they died. And the altered it forever."

    Eddie pushed a sound up from his chest, as hard as he could.

    "What..." he finally croaked.

    His voice seemed to be breaking through a shell, like a baby chick.

    "What....killed..."

    The Blue Man waited patiently.

    "What....killed....you?"

    The Blue Man looked a bit surprised. He smiled at Eddie.

    "You did," He said.......
