《再見瓦城》

之前澳門有得睇《再見瓦城》,但可惜有事去唔到。終於喺香港睇咗。唔知點形容。唔係娛樂片(好明顯),唔可以用"好睇"嚟形容。但睇得好入神,節奏好慢但好切合個故事,好多嘢諗,有啲畫面我重好記得,好想睇多次。就係咁。

《你的名字》

之前完全冇留意《你的名字》,亦都唔知邊個係新海誠。去睇,純粹係因為聽完《一劇之本》嘅主持佢地講個故事。淨聽佢地講都覺得好感動。(有劇透,未睇就諗清楚先聽。)

終於睇咗。一個人睇,重要知晒劇情,都睇到眼濕濕,聽晒成首片尾曲先肯走,重想即刻睇多次。

Bring out the best

Choose only the best when finding a partner? Shopping or investment?

Look only at the best in the partner? Bias?

Choose the good (may not be the best),
  look at the good (and acknowledge something not so good), and
  bring out the best in the partner?

This may be love ... I think.

There is a lot to learn in love. :)

On hearing aids ...

Charlie Swinbourne: The 10 most annoying things about hearing aids

My sharing, related to this interesting article.

3) I hate noisy environments. When alone,  I can turn the hearing aids off or switch to a low-volume mode. But with friends,  I need to concentrate and rely more on lip reading. This can't be avoided. Places with delicious food tend to be places with lots of people, naturally. :)

5) I keep spare batteries in my belt bags which I always carry. Can't take the risk. :)

6) The reason that I changed to in-the-canal model is not about appearance. My sweat was the main reason that my former behind-the-ear hearing aids got wet and then malfunctioned, nearly once every year. Perhaps BTE models are now better in water resistance?

8) The hearing aids are so expensive that I never used them while playing sports. [Like the author, I used to play football too, :)]

"Stupid questions not to ask a disabled person - Defying the Label Season" - BBC Three


An interesting video. I discussed with a friend a few days ago about what it means to be "normal" for people with disabilities. I cannot speak for others. I can only speak for me.

Feeling comfortable to talk about hard of hearing, like many other daily life issues people talk about, is the normal life I want.

Telling me that I am "normal" and treating me as a "normal" person, as if I were *not* hard of hearing, this is *not* normal.

Avoiding to talk about disabilities is *not* normal.

Love

Sometimes, what we have is not a problem to solve, but a person to love.

(This came to my mind when thinking about an incidence about my son and me. A good reminder.)
