事情跟計劃的總是不一樣 It never goes with your plans

This is a day full of plans being carried out in a different way.

1)幾天沒有出門。Elva 説要在離開臺灣前去故宮博物院增長文化氣息,我們就一起出行。不過才走到新公園,大小姐就説她累了,所以沒有看到什麼國寶,一整天裏看到最有藝術氣息的就是臺大醫院地鐵站裏的這個拈花佛手。
It started out with a “plan” to visit the National Palace Museum. Then the trip ended way before we even got close to the museum – we went to the banks, market, park…we even tried to do blood donation (but got rejected because of the recent US trip). So only after not so much walking, we decided to call it a day and aborted the museum plan. As a result, the only art related thing I saw today is this nice sculpture in the Taipei subway station.

2) 然後想說,既然累了,不如去刮痧。從回臺北以來,一直都很想刮痧。Elva 説帶我去一個中醫那裏。沒想到,那個中醫是不幫人刮痧的,我說我肩頸酸痛,他叫我趴在按摩床上,然後説我有長短脚。東整西敲的,還把我的頸子扭來扭去,嚇的我一身冷汗,脖子一扭的架勢和電影裏陸戰隊殺人的招式實在很像;脖子還不是喀喇一聲,是喀-啦-啦-啦三聲,扭了三節頸椎。不過,扭完,的確是完全鬆開了,一般按摩確實是達不到這個功效。
Then I thought it would be nice to get some shoulder massage before returning home. It turned out the doctor I was brought to does not do the shoulder stuff I wished. He is a real Chinese medicine doctor, not a masseuse. So while I was lying there, looking forward to a nice massage, he decided that he wanted to fix my legs first – according to him, my right leg is shorter and needs to be fixed…at least he tried to be helpful, and not only did  he fix my legs (apparently it only took one treatment to fix that problem),  he gave me 2 neck twists as bonus  – during the process I became extremely frightened as the way he did it  was almost identical to how marines terminate their enemy in those Hollywood blockbuster movies. The only difference is that I can hear my spine clicked 3 times at each twist instead of one single click, and I remain alive after the twists. The miraculous outcome was that after he fixed my legs and spine, the lower back pain bothering me for the past few days disappeared!

3)晚上想說之前斷食三天要吃清淡一點。沒想到,某人送帝王蟹來,從阿拉斯加直接提來的,都不知道臺灣海關怎麼會讓他過。有人說,因爲海都是通的,所以海關對於海裏的東西不太查,不過我也不覺得我拎著兩條鮭魚,海關會讓我過。原來蟹肉卷的原型就是帝王蟹,把腳剪開來,裏面的肉跟蟹肉卷一模一樣!所以,我“清淡”的晚餐就是白灼帝王蟹。
Then I went home for a light dinner as today is the 1st day out of my 3-day fasting. However, that did not go as planned, either, since Dad’s business associate hand carried some king crabs from Alaska! Never knew that you can bring these into the country just like that. Is crab not an animal? One theory is that the custom does not care too much about marine creatures since the ocean connects to all the countries. Still a mystery to me.

總結:這一天下來,沒有一件事情是照想像或計劃中發展。

不過,只要對於所謂的計劃不執着,好好享受當下,還是很充實又快樂的一天。

So today is one of those days that nothing works as how you plan. Nevertheless, it is still a very fulfilling and lovely day –  as long as you enjoy the moments and do not care too much all the historical plans.
