The Reason / 緣起

My Aspiration: Why do I want to start such a blog?

I must say at times it is not easy for an Asian living in the Western world with cultural differences on so many levels. Different sources and availability of ingredients and culinary disciplines in New Zealand for an Oriental vegetarian; different home remedies, therapies and perspectives towards health under the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as compared with the conventional Western Medicine; and even different healthcare as well as beauty products for Asian skins!!

In the past I have come across loads of information that are relevant to my lifestyle; though reading them with great fascination, most of them are left untouched or wasn’t even kept for future use. What a pity now coming to think of it!!! Life would probably be very different if I expanded my knowledge when I was younger, but oh well, it is never too late to start something now. Thus I would like to keep a blog to make notes of all useful well-being related things I have known, experienced, discovered and would love to try in the future. This would be more like my personal lifestyle encyclopaedia if you like. I must confess I have thought about blogging some while ago yet things just somehow get delayed.

After numerous chats with my colleague in sharing my attitudes in many aspects of life, she suggested that I should start a blog, which was about a year ago. It didn’t really occur to me until now, which I realize I can keep a weblog for my own benefit, as well as the potential in helping the others who are in the similar situation like me!! Mind you, I am not an expert in medicine or a beauty professional, as what I blog will be based on my experience and research only. Yet again, I also hope by sharing what I find useful would also earn me helpful pointers and accumulate valuable knowledge to fields I yet to learn.

我的志向:為什麼我要建立這部落格?

我必須承認因為許多層面上文化的不同,背井離鄉地在國外生活有時候還真不容易。好比說就東方素食者來說食材的種類及選擇性和烹飪上的器具及方法;相較於現代西方醫學及傳統中醫的調理觀點和藥物使用;甚至在我們亞洲人身上用不同的醫療或美容產品。

從以前我就接觸過很多與我生活方式相關的實用資訊;雖然當下在研究他們的時候很感興趣,但大多時候我並沒有特別去理會他們,甚至也沒有把他們留下來以便日後使用。現在想想還真是可惜呀!如果當初我能夠更充實我自己的話今日的生活也許會很不一樣。但是算了,現在採取行動也不算太遲。因此我想透過部落格來記載與健康有關的實用訊息,不管是我已經知道的、親身體驗的、新發現的或是想要嘗試的。這就算是我的個人生活小百科吧!我必須承認,我想寫部落格已經想寫一陣子了,可是往往都不知道在忙什麼就一直拖、拖、拖、..

當跟同事聊了幾次自己對生活上許多方面的看法時,她建議我開始寫部落格,不過那也是差不多一年前的事了。直到現在我才發現我可以透過網誌來當我的私人收藏,但同時也可以分享給與我處境相似的有緣人。但我必須先說,我不是甚麼醫療美容的專業人士,我只是將我的經驗和依照個人興趣所做的研究成果記錄下來而已。話雖如此,我也希望在我與大家分享的同時我也能從中獲得其他的實用的知識,來增長我的學問。
