on hiatus.

真的不知道這些照片已被我扣留了幾百個月,但今天終於抽出了時間來上傳它們。
好啦,這個講法倒是有一點浮誇,
但是本來早就想發這些照片了,可是因為我之前好像一直在按照『一季一篇』的發文模式就想說這次依舊按照該節律上傳文章 (乾笑)。

至於柏林的天氣,久違的春(夏)天終於降臨了。外頭風和日曬,溫暖和煦,而樹枝也長出翠綠的葉子了。這畫面真是令人賞心悅目。而且 ,我最喜歡的皮衣也終於看見它今年的第一道曙光。

前幾個月,趁比較不忙的好時機,閱讀了很多關於政治的文章並且也開始探索了柏林的數百奇妙景點。
很多來自柏林的同學常常都會跟我說:『欸,威廉!一到了春夏,你一定要把握時間,因為柏林只有在這個時段有辦法供應它民眾一定的生活品質!』我聽了笑翻天!實在說得太恰當...

這幾天也開始在計劃夏天的活動了。十分期盼和大家分享!


Having planned this particular post for months now, it is not until now that these photos see the light of the day (it is actually 1 am as I'm writing this).

The weather in Berlin has finally turned warm, the trees became green and the odd overcast sky of Berlin has made way for a crystal blue sky.  It is no wonder that my friends always tell
me to enjoy the summer to the fullest, "as it is the only time of the year, where there is quality of life in this city".

One more reason to take out your leather jackets and enjoy the pleasant temperatures at one of Berlin's many exciting hotspots or while making plans for the summer at a cool cafe place :P
Be excited for more!

A Summer in Berlin

『一寸光陰,一寸金,寸金難買寸光陰』

這句話是我阿嬤家樓下的素食早餐店老闆娘教我的。以前每年暑假回台灣的時候,他都會跟我說這句,而且也都會叫我不管我做什麼事,都應該珍惜和把握每一刻,因為時間是不能轉回去的。它一去不復返。

長大了之後才真正地懂這句的意思。

我們有時候最期待地是未來,而同時我們就會忘記眼前的美好。

這些照片是我七月底剛搬來柏林的時後跟我好朋友閔元拍的。我覺得我當時都只顧著想未來的事,沒有真正地享受當下的悠閒和暢快。而現在進入了大學日常了。時間比較不充足了,需要負擔的責任也變了比較多。
負責任不是不好,反而該認真的時候就是要認真,但是在玩的時後也還是要好好地珍惜在玩的時光。

I remember when I was little the owner of the breakfast shop downstairs my grandma's flat would always tell me to treasure and value our precious time, as no money in the world can ever turn it back.

It was only until I became an adolescent that I actually understood what she was telling me. We often focus on our future plans or simply on things we do not have because we consider them as more joyful.  Therefore, we neglect the here and now - in many cases even the piece of happiness that is right in front of our eyes. The following remorse of "not living the moment" , which lingers just around the corner, is of corse too late then.

I feel like it's not always easy to focus on the now, but if we do success and treasure the moment, life is much more uncomplicated and satisfying, no matter if one is traveling (like me here in the photos) or studying (which I am trying to get into lately....). 




好久沒有跟大家分享我最近很喜歡的音樂了,於是我準備了一個播放清單。
我承認,它的名字其實不太適合現在的季節,但柏林的冬天十月初就降臨了,而且今天又是冬至所以日照時即將要變長了。再撐個三個月幾週春天也就來了!

Below, you can also find a new playlist I created, as there wasn't any for what felt like ages. 
I hope  you will be enjoying it as much as I do (and await spring as much as I do as well....)!

a weekend's travel diary



This is a short, much overdue travel diary about a weekend trip to the mountains of Miaoli last May. I made this diary while slurping green tea from Japan and while enjoying the so called Septembersommer we are experiencing here in Germany at the moment.

我終於完成了這一篇已經拖太久,太久的日記。 德國的天氣最近非常的異常(德國人所稱Septembersommer/九月之夏), 因此想說邊喝杯冰綠茶享受著好天氣,邊做這三天的小日記會是個不錯的選擇!
