Initially I thought this is going to be a long post, but after a while, there isn’t much I need to say… Starting to see that it’s better to say less in most situations but some time a bit of talking is necessary and good when done right. Therefore I try to write a little here.
However what I write here is relative anyway and likely that you will see it differently to me, graduation wasn’t particularly exciting really, but appreciate that it provides an opportunity for many to meet. It takes a lot of yuen (緣) for all of us to meet, to be in the same college, studying in same course, living in the same house. It’s up to us what we want to do with the 因緣 that bring us all together, why not make the best out of it. It’s not easy to live together, from strangers to housemates, some are thinking of living in the house that I’m currently living in, the thing I treasure is the time I get to spent with them.
This remains me of the talk given my Ajahn Brahm, I can’t remember exactly but on the line of describing Karma is like the ingredients of a cake. That we all have different ingredients (e.g. health, wealth, looks, etc) However what makes a good cake depends mainly on the cook, you can still bake a good cake with poor ingredients, but good ingredients doesn’t guarantee a good cake!
People will go, things will change, that’s the nature which is impermanence (無常). Happy things will happy and relatively unhappy moments will come, because we see things relatively (at least I still do, for me, it’s best to 放下萬緣，一心念佛). In a few years time, or even a weeks time, things that is happening right now becomes very small. Rare it is to know a group of friends as close as QuGee, easy it is to form, difficult it is to maintain. Much work need to be done, much to practise and much to learn, something to remain myself and to share:
Many thanks to Kamil and Jac who have kindly taken many nice photos, their zoto urls:
After living in Queen’s Gate for 3 years, all of us moved out on Sat. Everyone will be doing different things next year, but most will be at Lancaster Gate. I will be in Bracknell working for a Engineering Company. Everything from now will be very different (Impermanence), living with 4 others who I don’t know yet in a house. Things seems to be happening and I guess I’m very much following the flow rather than trying to go against it. Different definitions here, but surely you will understand if you know me.
Many things have happened this month, FYP, getting a job offer, moving house and looking forward to travel to Wutai Shan… I’m not very good at putting together what has been happening, Jac has put it very well on this post. Time to let go of the past and the future and back to the present moment.
This year for Mother’s Day, QuGee has decided to sing a song for all our mums. It was harder than I thought as I don’t sing often but it was definitely worth while. Will have some photos up later. Here is the lyrics:
曲：黃家駒 詞：小美 編：BEYOND
-> Xiaoyun, Jac, YSS
-> Kwok Hei, YGG
-> Terry, Vincent, Kamil
-> Kwok Hei, YGG
Here are posts from QuGee related to this:
[Kamil] [Terry] [Jac] [Xiao]
Happy Mother’s Day
Thanks to Jac, we now have a new QuGee Logo:
And also some changes to our QuGee frontpage, also new web buttons and badges:
If you want to put it on your site, this is the code:
<a href=”http://www.qugee.com/”><img title=”QuGee button” src=”http://www.qugee.com/images/qugee_button.gif” alt=”QuGee button” height=”15″ width=”80″ /></a>
Of course this is only one of the many ways to add the button. Lastly there are some very nice wallpapers which you can found on this page.

It has been a while since the last post, have been quite busy with many things especially looking for job. As most will agree that it’s difficult to find a company that like me and I like them, and also not only concentrate on earning money alone. Sounds like a difficult job to find, will keep trying and see what comes.
My Computer – Also spent sometime exploring Linux, tried to swap the two hard disk I have been at the end decided will stick with the old one since both of them are 5400rpm. Finally decided to upgrade from 512MB -> 1024MB ram as the demand from the programs are just too much. It’s a lot faster after the upgrade, well I should say being able to open much more program without worrying that I have to close some of them first. Very happy with the computer and hope it will last for 1/2 more years. Then find out that the graphics card has not been properly set up hence a bit slow when loading google spreadsheet. It was on AGP 1x and with some help online, managed to fix it. After that I tried to fix the boot loader(splash) where the resolution is wrong but after adding some line (vga=791) to the menu.lst under grub it can’t boot into Xserver…
QuGee – The QuGee website has also undergo many changes this week. Thanks to Jac we now have a new logo and the layout & theme of the forum has been improved. Now everything is looking nicer and easier to navigate. Everyone has many updates this week too, e.g. Kamil took some nice photos and Terry come up with something funny.
Time flies, have to use it well.
