From Amy’s diary:

(a translation of www.amychan-grassland.com)

PART I:

When you come across sad moments, you feel that you are not as good as others.  To relieve this chaotic mind, you must think of yourself as a good and a helpful person to this world.


I believe in luck, but i also believe that a person can not have a life full of luck, in a lifetime, there will always be good times and bad times.   The most important thing is, at the most important time, how do you face difficulties in life?  If you're in a worse situation, panicking and blaming yourself will only make the situation worse.  Since you have to face the days anyway...  Why don't you face them positively and give yourself support. Just continue fighting obstacles, once the luck comes, use it and keep on facing forward. Although theory and reality may not exist together, but honestly, you just have to change your attitude to make life works.

My main aim in life is to be happy, but many people think that having money and expensive materials can make you happy.  It's not true. But to be with your family and no one there to annoy you, then life is at peak.  However, forgive me for saying this, being a celebrity with out reporters surround him or her is an impossible thing. 

Do try and ask something from yourself, try not to ask anything from everyone else; because try to ask something from yourself is better than ask someone else.  Instead of "me me me", ask yourself what can you do for others and for this world.  That's how I live my life. So then when I need to sort out something, such as obstacles, I can do that myself with out asking a lot of help from others. However, we are only human, sometimes we can solve problems, other times we can't.   Therefore, just try your best, win or lose is not important, think of yourself as a winner always.

Happy or not is whether you know what happiness is.  You know your path, smart people know where to go and find happiness, but others can't. Infact, happyniesss can be find easily, it's the way you carry out things.

People should not be too greedy, like at work, since you already found a job which is right for you, why think of something else? Like finding a boyfriend, A is already nice to you, then why try out to see if B is better? This attitude won't bring you happiness, "arriving at one place and you try to find  hapiness at another place,
好過終日往外望,除非真有更美好的..."

PART II:

 

 

I'm more of a 於現 type of person, sometimes i woulld come across unhappy things and would get angry, but not everything can go as you want them to, everyone should face the truth.

Everyone want to live and be happy.  All their life, we want to live in peace and in happiness.

Family is the soil, your business is the sun.  I believe that i am a material woman inside, where all the minerals and foods i need absorb into my soil, therefore, need to put into the sun once in a while.  

To get angry and shout are not the right way out infront of business buddies and friends.   You should hold back your anger. However, sometimes you should let your anger out.  As for me, I would like to find out where the problem is first, and if letting out anger would help then I would.   But most of the time I would save my breath.

Unkown to me, patience can be learn, holding back this time, then holding back the next time, again and again, slowly you will see that you can hold back more and mroe and won't let things get to you so easily.

Normally, the hardest thing for people is to hold the lens and ZOOM IN on themselves.  When somethings are sad and hurt, people usually put alot of strength in focusing on those points, which hurt them even further. To overcome these problems, keep the lens WIDE, and so when you look inside, there is a lot more. In fact, next to the load of rubbish is a patch of green grass, yellow flowers and a blue sky, once you see the reality then you will see the greatness.

Once i have a puzzled mind, i like to look at the stars in the sky, from my position, the stars are really far. However, if there is a day where i can sit on a star and look down, then the world is really small, and your problems will all seem very small. Thinking in this way really helps me, as they are so small, then why should i think about them?

PART III:

 

I have a tiny bit of short sightness, but I always like to wear glasses or contact lens. some people say that a prescription of about 100..you don't have to wear glasses, true! i can still see without wearing them but i still refer to see the world clearer. This situation is similiar to people, if you spend more time with a person, you learn more and see more from that person.  Each step you take, no matter good or bad, realize right or wrong, if it is wrong, then next time improve it.

In order to face the ups and downs in life, you need see life clearly. I enjoy tough days by  facing  them positively, and I shall continue to face the ups and downs in my life. If i could choose, i would prefer to be the moving grass in which the wind blows, better than the flower inside a room, there's an old saying 正所謂『吃得苦中苦,方為人上人』!

The hong kong industry should be 百花齊放, producing artists of different varieties of music, the current music at the moment is 『喇叭褲』, and the one that i choose is a more ancient type 『旗袍』,歷久常新,經擺經看!P
eople change depend on the enviroment they are in.


Being a role model, you have to face the fact that you are going to be talked about, whether good or bad. Rumours happen a lot and most of them are not true, why not save your energy as the truth will come out soon anyway.

People will keep on growing, feelings will also be at different stages, therefore, try to keep a close relationship.  First, try to remmeber all those good feelings, and try and see the changes as each stage grows, then you can face the future when your relationship develops.  The good feelings will stay and the bad will slowly disappear.

PART IV:

 

I also live for happiness, that is what we all do.  Life is short, even though i have money, fame and some status, i can't take them with me when i die, that's why i told myself not to be too conscious about these things.


有什麼可由自己操縱?以上街時跌倒為例吧,一個謹慎的人不穿高跟鞋, when you walk, you should'nt run and jump, when you pass a 坑渠 you should be careful, if you do that then you decrease your chances of falling over. On the other hand, a clumsy person who keeps moving backwards and forewards, and not looking at where she's going, the chances of falling over is high.  It is better to be careful than being clumsy, but they are for you to choose.

At small age, i knew exactly what i wanted, but i most definitely agree that true love exists. The only thing is that people now are really busy, and put their wishes and dreams aside, and don't feel anything about true love! True love is around you, just use effort to look and you will find your true love.

PART V:

The amount of money each person makes in their lives is made to be that way, if you over work and try to make more money, the end result will only still be the same, so why don't you just do your own part and dont ask for more!

Let it be, understand what you want, and put effort into doing it!  Don't ask for more than you can give.

I always use this idea: people are like plants, families are soil, businesses are sun. Without soil, plants just won't stay up, as for the sun, every plants needs this to live. Some poeple are like the big trees in the forest, and me? i am like a plant living inside, with the sun shine on me then i will live well. But without soil i will die.

PART VI:

 

About relationships between my colleagues at work, they call me modern woman! but talking about family, i am actually very traditional. Apart from growing older, i feel that love is not to be received but is to be given out.

I dont think i am a person who really understands buddhism, I don't ever talk about buddhism at all because I don't know much about it. But I believe that I should use a calm attitude to face all things. I haven't reached the 與世無爭的境界 yet. Everytime i work, I have to put on alot of make up, put on red and green clothes, and must face people with a happy attitude.  This is very hard to do.  However, it is good to have a happy attitude toward people around you.

I wont talk about buddhism or even attempt to teach people about it. I don't have the right to do that.  To born and to die are the stages of life, we all have to go through these stages.

Part VII:

A lot of people ask if I am a vegetarian because I am in such a good shape, no.  The way to stay in good shape is to keep yourself happy.  If you notice, when the children are laughing,  they are very innocent, grown-ups should follow them too.  You shouldn’t get annoy and angry because of work, keep yourself happy.  You will never be pretty if you are unhappy, I'm saying this because it is my experience.


A person, no matter if she is 20 or 40 years old, only needs to 朝氣勃勃, to be happy and full of energy.   I started to work in the TV industry at 17/18 years old, therefore people who know me know that I'm very old.   Other don't know that, they thought that I have good genes.


I am also a person who believes in reality, being old is something that happens to all human anyway, and there is no way of controlling it, why don’t you just let it happen happily? If you are worry about your figure, and worry about it too much will give you wrinkles, which will make you look old quicker, what is the point?

Part VIII:

A family is wholesome, husband and wife form a couple, they shouldn’t be too selfish, my husband and I have a 'connection', one side is to work and the other is to look after our family and children. Children nowadays grow up too quickly; young children nowadays learn very quickly about world issues, but in their heart they may not be fully grown up.

All people are equal, you can’t classify their costs! being an actress is my job, a boutique's sale girl is no different.  The only thing is that being an actress you are known to most people, that’s what an actress is all about, and so you are in a center of the circle at all the time.

I am not a star, my job is an actress, in my eyes a star is like a star from the sky, to act well and sing well is my aim! If someone thinks that I am very famous, and glamorous, and then they really do look far beyond me, there are many more famous people than me!
