看更原來識雞腸, 掃地都要寫文章; 學士碩士唔馨香, 因為博士都在場;
人工一定唔理想, 七仟左右已中上; 十二個月無雙糧, 兩年合約要裝香;
半年之內有工返, 已經算係好收場; 開工應該喜洋洋, 點知世態更炎涼;
管理之名樣樣理, 萬人之下一人上; 資源增值好榜樣, 以為發揮你所長;
光管燒左等你換, 影印食紙你當殃; 電話唔通都關事, 水廁唔通你清場;
電腦壞左要識整, 發現病毒要早響; 食飯最多半個鐘, 大小二便難舒暢;
中港兩地四圍走, 遲早去阿塞拜疆; 仲要出街收爛賬, 朝早做到午夜場;
公司人事要攪好, 唔係就李代桃僵; 對付下屬要讚賞, 對住上司要讚揚;
對待同事要禮讓, 對住老板扮羔羊; 老細個仔問功課, 資料搜集你擅長;
芝麻小事難逃避, 唔識都要頂硬上; 上司老板夠無良, 病都要做鬼體諒;
同事犯錯有你份, 仲要鬧你正粉腸; 開會猶如打靶場, 比人插到啪啪響;
翻開肚皮睇全相, 鬧完仲要拍手掌; 工餘進修係妄想, 回家食飯無相量;
想話請假來休養, 老細面似屎一樣; 晚晚加班做七日, 唔通個個嫌命長;
日日返工似喪屍, 十足幾年無沖涼; 大假以為好安樂, 手提電話日日響;
運動要響公司做, 逐箱"快勞"搬埋牆; 老細生日當娛樂, 週年聚餐齊歡唱;
笑臉迎人裝模樣, 當正自己做歡場; 以上所講無誇張, 全是打工眾生相;
奉勸各位打工仔, 積極求存為至上; 年尾流流高危日, 偷懶都係咪咁揚;
香港打工係咁樣, 大聲疾呼"吹Q漲"

I am blind, please help.

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.'
There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?'

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way..'
What he had written was: ' Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing?

Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story:
Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.

Invite others towards good with wisdom. Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Keep the faith and drop the fear.

Great men say, 'Life has to be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness.... In the journey of life, if you want to travel without fear, you must have the ticket of a good conscience.'

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling...
And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it.

Good Communication Starts With Good English

Concept #1: Write as concisely as possible.
Concept #2: Use active tense.
Concept #3: When writing a verb, include the subject of that verb.

Additional tips for writing in Simplified English:
» Put phrases next to the words that they modify
» Keep the language simple
» Avoid slang and clichés
» Avoid cultural references (for example, common myths or fictional references)
» Avoid words that have more than one meaning (for example, account can be a verb or can refer to a bank account, etc.)
» Avoid leaving out verbs (or nouns) to make your sentences shorter if leaving them out reduces clarity
