日本地震所见所闻所历点滴

首先,笔者目前还在日本东京经历着摇摇晃晃的日子。

已经发生逾两周的日本东北大地震海啸没有让笔者仓促决定结束本已短暂的游学之行,反之随着难以捉摸的天灾更动些许既定行程,有幸与日人一起经历颇为艰巨的难后两周。在即将回返祖国之前,的确应该为此经历点滴着墨,尤其是世界各地的讯息网络更是步步惊心,让世人不管三七二十一深信之,亦没有经过思索再来评荐事实的真伪。笔者没有意愿为任何层面粉饰太平,纯粹以平民百姓的简单心态分享经验,将所见所闻所历一一分享,如是而已。

两周以来,笔者每日都在追踪世界各地和当地的新闻报道,再来分辨个中的差异,取一个平衡点来相信;不管是哪个国家、哪个媒体、哪种媒介都有不同的诠释,所以单凭任何一个媒介传媒的资讯来相信的话,确实不是一个甚为妥当的做法;毕竟任何一面倒的新闻内容都不会让问题加以解决,反而只是制造更多的惶恐和流言蜚语罢了。一个新闻的播放与传达很大程度上被数个因素左右着,其中包括了国家角度、媒体背景、媒介语言、翻译着墨、主观客观等等。同样的新闻内容在不同国家被播放的中心点可能会有所差异,举例来说,同样事件在东方西方的媒体报道的呈现方式定然是不同的,因为东西两者的社会思想和价值在本质上早已有天渊之别的差异。

一个新闻点由不同幕后背景的媒体去传达亦有其耐人寻味之处:不同的媒体公司掌权人对新闻在传达以后所能达到的功效自然有所期待,因此当不同的媒体老板在对不同的后果功效有所期待的时候,新闻所予以传达的角度也随之更动。经过国家与媒体背景角度衡量以后,平民的你我能够接收到的讯息同样必须历经不同媒介语言的传达、翻译工作上的着墨、传达者潜移默化的主观客观意愿等等,不管我们是否愿意承认,能够到达你我手中的所谓‘新闻’实际上已经经历层层包装和诠释,其事情的真实性或者已经被乖离、被有意无意地修饰报道出来。当然,在科技迅速发展的世代里,每个人要获取第一手的资讯更是轻而易举,唯独你我不能笃定的发出声明:自己所获取的任何资讯都是百分白精准的,因为网络世界本质上就是一个大千世界,有真亦有假,个中真假也只能取决于个人是否信之。

有鉴于此,对于此次百年天灾的报道,笔者没有不认同、不赞成、不满意任何一方的报道手法或是内容,因为自己都是相信每一方的内容、同时兼也不相信每个方面所要传达的资讯;因为其中的信任尺度端由笔者自个儿去决定相信与否。当然,对于一些无中生有、不知所谓的消息自是觉得啼笑皆非、甚至有些天方夜谭之感;尤其是当消息内容和真实现况有所差别的时候,你我就会知道真伪了。因此,在评断一则新闻内容真实性的时候,你我都有责任以普罗大众、平民百姓的正常知识来衡量,继而决定是否加以传播、还是就此打住。笔者以一个简单例子,当世纪天灾发生的时候的确是让日本国家人仰马翻,可是旋即的出街新闻就此可怕地妖魔化日本,仿佛日本国家就此日落夕阳、从此没落了!但是,如果你我都愿意不厌其烦地找寻一下日本国度的地图,就会发现基本的地理常识就可以让你我了解哪些部分是重灾区、哪些部分安然无恙等等;可惜很多世人并没有选择这样的做法。(也罢!很多人连基本的马来西亚地理位置都不甚了了,何况是其他国家呢!)

笔者要点出的就是摇摇晃晃的余震还是连绵不断(搞得我每天仍然摇摇摆摆、头晕不已)、便利商店货品确实销售惊人(至少我要的饮料、水果、食物、零食还是源源不断)、地铁电车驿站商店呈现昏昏暗暗(轮流停电让各个公司、商店都节约用电,提早结束营业);每个日人仍然还是进行着每日的生活,当然现今情况就是要更动一下平日的生活作息、态度方式,尽小心力为东北地区的重灾区人民付出些努力。诚然,这样的生活或许会持续一段时间,尤其心态上时时要保持积极并不是一件容易的事情,但是套句朋友所说的话:
“我们生长在地震海啸处处的国家里,很难说那里会是安全地带;但是生活就是这样啊!就做好准备面对啊!”

这样坦然的态度不是只有日本人或是天灾处处的人民应该秉持,而是全世界人类都要拥有这样的人生态度;这样你我在面对天灾人祸之际,都可以处之泰然。

Back to Tokyo...

Eight more days in Japan and finally I'm leading my way to back to the capital city, Tokyo at this late evening. Well, it's kind of tired after a week away from the city and apart from the decent study I should done it in this field trip; however I was just really want to take a break after a packed schedule and the biggest disaster in the world happened in my life.

Four days in Osaka with aimless but just met up with few friends which never meet up after the youth program at two years ago. In fact, the only meaningful thing I did during the stay at Osaka shall be visited the Osaka Castle and Kyoto one day trip under the guidance of a friend. Maybe the age is coming and I just don't really like the busy schedule in life but the slow and relax life will be more suit for my life style. Moved from Osaka to Shizuoka, met up with friends and experienced the life style at there, the far view of Mount Fuji, hang around to chit-chat, visited the MATSU garden and the black sand, never forgot the hot spring as well. Such a relaxing and aimless life which never experienced in home country before.

The Monday was a public holiday and I got a short interview session for a municipal representative at the far away place. It might be away from the city but I did have a nice conversation with the old age representative for defensed the seat for forty years. It also gave me a chance to practice my poor Japanese as well. Nothing else should I record more than I uploaded the photos will be the most practical way to show everyone my path of recent days.

I got to stop here as I really have such a tired body after the whole day travel...
Well, that's it!

In Kansai Area...

星期二的这一天,在东京站等着下午二时三十分的新干线,准备出发到大阪继续原本既定的行程。自己提前来到了车站,毕竟如今因为轮流停电的关系,一些电车班次受到了影响(我的电车没有受到波及,只是预早了时间来慢慢磨!),所以在这里等新干线,总比紧凑的时间来得舒服吧!

昨天、昨晚,两位室友(韩国和法国美女)都纷纷回国出去,只剩下我和泰国室友还停留此处;而实际上她们三位都很担心、甚至有些过了头,因为对于一些有的没的胡乱猜测也信以为真,没有在第一时间对自己所居住的市区做出了解,反而更着一起兵荒马乱,实在是让人操心不已!对于居住区内第一手的资讯和更动,亦是自己在网络上追随着当地新闻脚步、电源公司的最新公布、灾难情况的即时状况等等,对大家做出报告;尔后自己才醒起自己在他们当中是大姐了,他们都还只是学生,对于人生体验与变化没有办法做出即时的反应是可以理解的;再提醒自己这一点以后,又再次发觉自己更加地成长了——岁月的增长原来真的是真实的,也许你我都不会察觉自己已经在不知不觉中的长大了。。。但是,当一些事情发生的时候,你我的应对和处理方式都会轻轻地告诉你我——我们成长了!

来临的一个星期,我都不会在东京,而是在关西地带,包括了大阪、静冈、名古屋,至于京都和奈良还在斟酌着是否前往,毕竟我是超级喜欢文化古迹的(自己就像一个老人家);错过了日本伟大文化的重点地带的确是很遗憾的,尤其我还是和它们擦身而过呢!未来的四晚都会在大阪酒店留宿,幸好大阪的朋友提前帮我预订了房间,然后昨天又成功地追加后来两晚的住宿,所以落脚处是肯定没问题了。过后,就会到静冈朋友父母的家留宿,那是一个很适合自己生活的城市,因为一切都是符合龟宝宝(kame)的生活方式,很期待那样的生活。内心期待着放松的脚步、悠闲的步伐、心灵的沉淀。。。当然,主要几个新干线站的火车票已经准备齐全,只是间中的京都和奈良的当地火车始终还是需要抵达现场之后,才能做定夺吧!

的确,全世界的人都在询问自己为何还要选择留在此处,不想尽方法尽快回国呢?是啊!对人类来说,生命才是最为重要的吧!留得青山在,不怕没材烧啊!只是,离开又怎样?不离开又怎样呢?我没有这么清高、我也没有这么伟大,我在第一时间自然也想了办法、甚至也找到了办法;却只是一直没有付诸于行动;最后决定了按照原定计划回国。曾经也慌乱的自己其实是在朋友的谈话之中提升了心灵的镇定,也再次找到了心灵的成长方向——随遇而安的态度。坦白说,过去的自己和其他人相比的话,已经算是很随遇而安了,很多事情看得很开、会执著、也会放手;经此一役,我更加可以说自己的功力更上一层楼了;许多的事情与执著更是看得开、看得化,尤其是命理循环、生老病死一事,更是随性!自己当然没有鼓励人们轻言放弃生命什么的,只是要强调的是不可轻言放弃、也不可过份执著,毕竟人的一生走过了、留有痕迹、那亦是意义非凡的事情!

当然大和民族的精神确实是要我们大家好好学习的,真正地溶入了和族的生活(虽然时间不长,但是却自觉尤甚于那些常驻于此、却不曾真正了解和族和魂的人),才不得不真正服气于他们的气度和气节——大和民族的崛起、屹立、长存,却是不无道理的。面对灾难前,纵然慌与乱,却还是仍然能够按部就班解决问题,将伤害与损失尽量减到最低点;我想如果自己是在其他国度的话,自己也未必可以处之泰然、甚至更多不可想象的事情亦可能会发生的。
“我们生长在一个地震、海啸等天灾处处的国家,没有任何地方是安全的,但我们只能面对。”朋友的这番话让自己了解大和民族是随时都有准备,就算没有万全的准备,但是心态上亦绝对能在最短时间内调整;而这种心态的态度,自己是觉得每个人都应该拥有的想法,毕竟思想上的未雨绸缪亦是很重要的!

这一次的短暂游学之行所学习到的经验是世纪以来前所未有的经历。虽然在临门一脚,国际研讨会被迫取消,但是庆幸的是自己仍然能够和主办当局以及一些已经抵步的发表者进行短暂的交流(虽然地点实在是在那好遥远的地方,所幸当日的自己没有遇到电车停滞的局面),虽未尽兴,但是至少能见见他们亦是一件不错的事啊!当然,这一次发表不成,自己仍然还得继续寻找其他的发表机会,毕竟要完成论文,这是其中一项必须达成的条件啊!自己决定专职读书的做法好像总是颠簸不停的,障碍总是在那转角处默默等待自己的出现;也许对很多人来说,这样的过程真的是太辛苦了,而且这并不是一件一定要达成的事宜啊!可是,我不想去设想太多、也不想去设想为什么就是我的人生如此颠簸、更不想去知道未来的路会起还是落;我就只是知道我很荣幸自己可以有机会经历这些点点滴滴,过程中可能真的很困难、很痛苦、很苦撑,只是都会过去的,而实际上自己也真的是经过了。。。。。。

我明白自己的责任、我更明白自己的梦想,所以我绝不会轻言放弃,因为只要坚持下去,就可以有达成梦想的一天。

Post 311...

Today was just the second day after the 311 earthquarke in Japan...and I never went go today since it was just really so tired for the last two days, no matter in the physical or mental way.

Al though it was really so tired for me to recall back, but I think that I should leave some paths in it before I really forgot everything...
I stayed at Kanagawa on March 9 and 10 where I can meet up my friend, Haru san. On March 11 morning, Haru's mum just sent me to the Yokohama town which I had another meeting with my previous Japanese sensei, Yamamoto sensei and two other friends from Malaysia, Ume san and Siew Mei san. I did find back my memories about SSEAYP program in Yokohama port with okasan before I actually to continue my further meeting.

I met sensei and friends around one something and continued our path in Chinatown, Yokohama to have our lunch. Then we continue to look around Yokohama as Yamamoto sensei became our tour guide to show us the beauty of the port city. While we headed our way to the small mountain, we felt the shake and my friends still wondered maybe they were just too tired and felt dizzy due to the energy used, however I saw many peoples ran out from the building whereas nobody was screamed. Then, we knew the disaster was coming as everyone was listening the radio, checking the news through cell phone, contacting friends or families to get latest information etc. Yamamoto sensei predicted the shake we had experienced in Yokohama was around level 5, and it was really accurate after we saw the news.

Tsunami alert being heard and we unable to close to the bay area, and many things we need to cancel and even the shopping mall also being closed! The railways all stopped and the most troublesome part was how are we going to back Tokyo as we need to continue our next day schedule...traffic jam everywhere, no other method to back and finally we had a place to stay, sensei's place. We were just so thankful towards sensei! Before we reached sensei's place, one more thing I need to emphasize is we did walk around three hours in the chilly night, but I still felt we were so lucky and blissful enough to experience all these......

For my case, I checked the mail and knew that the conference being cancel, but we were having the meeting gathering for those who already reach Tokyo. And I was so lucky to meet them although I might be late to reach the place (Seibu-Chicibu, Saitama area, which quite far away from Tokyo, I took 2 hours to reach there!)! It was really a meaningful meaning though we cannot have the chance to share the opinions about academic, but who knows future maybe we have the chance again. Then, finally I reached my room in Tokyo at last, everyone seemed so tension and panic, but I was just too tired and wanted to get into my bed as soon as possible...and I did so after settled down; well, I really slept until 11am for this morning, amazing happening for me!!!

In fact, I still can feel the small shake in the sleeping time, and I knew that actually caused the peoples felt so tense and nervous in it......as a human being, we really can't predict too much and even we do so, nobody can knows it exactly what is happening next; so just let it be!

I hope for nothing but everyone just be tough to face any happening in your life...and the most important thing is NEVER GIVE UP!

心情一二事

由于想要写一些感性的东西,所以选择使用中文来表达,或许更为贴切些。。。
已经过了一个星期余,完全适应了这里的生活,过去一直不明白为何许多人总是认为自己肯定可以在太阳之国生活,如今终于了解了!(当然除了天气之外)
这些日子的停歇脚步的确让自己的思维回喘了口气,没有了忙忙碌碌、匆匆忙忙、赶头赶尾的紧张生活,脑袋里的思想真的是达到了休息的状态,自然的可以思考了一些。。。。。。

这个周末就是此次游学的重点了!文章的发表之日来临了。。。紧张无极!

查看了同一组别一起发表的人们,他们的份量都很足够,好像只有我这一只菜鸟胆粗粗地在诸位的面前班门弄斧了,所以心情完全是紧张到不行!自己所能够做的准备已经完成了,只是脑袋里还是一直将这份重任置于心中,无时无刻都在提心吊胆着、在七上八下着。。。就连走走看看的心情也受到了影响!
算了,不管了!(话虽如此,心底终究还是在意的。。。)

我相信自己可以的!

Reading & Walking around

Few days never post anything at here, seemed like lack of something in the memory...so I got hurry up to record one or two words before I totally forgot everything!

Last Friday, I had a chance to visit the headquarter of Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) Japan. Furthermore, had a short meeting with Mr. Tanigaki, the president of LDP too. Then, my friend, Masakuni, brought me had a tour in the building, found out and learnt many new things! Thank you so much, Kunisan!

The next stop will be the House of Representative, Japan. Again Kunisan helped me a lot to ensure me had the chance to visit the excited place of Japan! The stones, the rocks, the rooms, the buildings, the system, the peoples, and so on just fine and fit in their positions and the running of the country basically come from this place as it is the place the policies of the country being approved and announced!

Saturday, I just had a date with France friend, Elsa to look around of the OLD TOKYO, Ueno and Asakusa. We just hanged around by foot and never realised that the Nippori, Uguisudani, Ueno stations were just so near and we did find lots of traditional places! We got a 192 years old shop, HABUTAE, and we just entered to have our historical breakfast. The journey continued as we walked around and get to know many interesting and meaningful places.

No rushing, no time limit, no noisy sharing, we had nothing but just followed our heart to search the soul of OLD TOKYO through the paths, the streets, the foods, the peoples etc......and we reached AMEYOKO, a similar place like Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You can get whatever you want with the nice price at here! Our stomach called us to grab something before we moved on and here we reached a Japanese style restaurant, we got our lunch, UNAGI DON there. The portion just big enough and I think I got to exercise and swim more after my field trip at here.

Sunday morning, Kunisan brought me to Tokyo Metropolitan Central Library which is really useful for me! I knew the way to get there and just visit it anytime...in fact, the information really fit what'm I searching for...
;)
Then someone really surprised me! Machi san was coming to meet me up! WAU, so touching! We had lunch together and chit-chat......After the full meal, switched our point to YOYOGI park and this is a place which famous for cherry blossom! I supposed have the chance to see it at the end of this March! According to Machi san, we can find any kind of people in Yoyogi park which quite confused me at once. But finally I understand the meaning whereas I saw peoples dancing, singing, speech practice, playing baseball, badminton, flying kite, etc at there......
Really interesting and weird place too!

I visited Meijijingu too. Prayed at there but wished nothing, well I don't really keen to wish anything as I knew I'm happy and blissful right now......
Kunisan and Machi san did bring me to Harajuku famous street, Takeshimaya...I was not so sure the name, but it sounded something like this. I got to admit I'm old enough, or maybe I'm not that type of shopping holic, so I just felt OMG while we passed through it.
Well, three of us felt so and maybe we no longer teen anymore!

After said Sayonara with Machi san, we headed our way to Kunisan's house. I met his parents, his brother, and his fiancee too! Not many peoples met her before and I'm the FPY (foreign PY). Really a nice meeting with them and we really had a nice chat! The foods really delicious and I did feel the warm-hearted from them, so touch for me as the weather is so chilly in this big city while I was alone at here...they really made me felt I'm at home!

Last but not the least, the one I should thanks for is Kunisan!!! DOUMO DOUMO DOUMO......


PS: and I found out Kunisan's birthday is falling same day with my beloved mummy's. ;)

国立国会图书馆

周四的一大早,开始了游学(三个星期余能够这样使用吗?)生活的第一站——国立国会图书馆。
朋友已经约定了时间,自己当然会比预期时间提早出门、以期待提早抵达目的地;住所距离国立国会图书馆必须转达一趟电车才能抵达,所以路在口边,就一直问到底吧!第一趟是东京圈的主要枢纽线——山手线,约定时间是在早上上班的繁忙时间,所以自己终于真正体会了什么是“沙丁鱼”、“人挤人”,那是比香港、台北都还要拥挤的情况!你就是可以完全不用握柄来扶持自己的平衡,因为你绝对不会倒塌、跌倒——人与人之间是没有空隙的;所以换个角度来想的话,那样是安全的!
;)

在转第二趟电车的时候,自己超级乌龙,搭相反的方向,所以距离目的地越加遥远,所幸也只是走出来、再从相反方向到目的地而已!抵达的时候,时间刚刚好,朋友也刚抵步;了解了一些明日应该探访的地方以后,我们就迈向第一站——国立国会图书馆出发了!一路上也知道了日本一些主要政党的总部亦设立在此处,而且国会、议员楼、首相楼、媒体楼等等也在周围,感觉很认真、严肃,尤其处处都可以看见警卫人员在站岗着。。。。。。

原本以为国立国会图书馆应该是门可罗雀的,谁知道居然是门庭若市——才知道日本国民阅读频率之所以居冠,的确是不无道理啊!首先,将手袋放入储物柜,然后进入使用搜寻系统找寻相关书籍与文件,然后预定、等待20至30分钟,依据荧幕显示的登入号码领取索要的书籍,只是每一回只能拎三本书而已!这是唯一美中不足的地方。我啊!就在重复又重复的过程中,呆到了下午3时正,才收工回去医肚子和休息。

累死了、冷死了。。。


PS:过去两天提着笨重行李的后遗症出现了,两手超级酸痛!!!

Bermulalah programku...启动学习。。。

Dah hari kedua di sini, dan sekarang baru ada masa untuk membuat catatan bagi programku. Saya bermula dengan Bahasa Malaysia, agak peliknya bagi banyak orang. Namun perasaan yang teringin menggunakan bahasa berada di luar negara......
;)
Mungkin kerana terlalu rindu segala yang berada di negara tanahairku......

Semalam sampai di hotel tepat pada pukul 12, berehat sebentar, dan terus tidur;akan tetapi tidur tak berapa lena disebabkan cuaca yang sejuk!

Hari ini pula sibuk masuk ke bilik yang akan kutinggal 3 minggu, memang penat kerana jalan sini ke sana dengan bagasi yang berat ini...tapi akhirnya saya pun sampailah destinasi......

Tadi makan malam dengan beberapa orang admins, memang berterima kasih mereka dapat keluar berjumpa dengan saya walaupun kerjaya yang sentiasa sibuk!

Malam ini kenalah tidur awal sedangkan esok pagi sudah bermulanya program sendiriku yang bertujuan menyiapkan pelajaranku......

Selamat malam!

;)

写完这一篇,我要睡了;因为担心时间久了会忘记,所以决定现在就做一下记录。。。
现在是第二夜了。
昨晚睡得不怎么好,希望今天可以睡好吧!

昨晚的飞机准时抵达,效果还不错,和马航可以分庭抗礼了(除了食物和娱乐享受以外);最为费时的部分就是提行李的时刻了,因为我等了半句钟才看见我的宝贝行李!所幸我预订了个三站的酒店住宿一晚,所以只用了10分钟抵达酒店,正好深夜12时正我抵达了酒店入房休息!哦。。。忘了说,日本的天气好冷,昨天抵步的温度是摄氏6度,而且还下着雨,那种的冷不言而喻啊!

酒店的服务很棒,女性客户还可以在三项免费的包装产品选择,而我在无心插柳底下选择了泡澡用途的包装,所以就顺水推舟地直接以热水泡澡,放松一下之前一直忙忙忙的生活!可惜啊!可能由于过于劳累了,反而无法入睡,直至深夜二时正才正式睡着。。。。。。

今天早晨,生理时钟自动唤醒我,做好准备以后,就去享用日本式早餐了!的确符合我的饮食习惯,许多人以为我对日本饮食情有独钟是因为对太阳国家的崇拜,但是大家其实都错了,因为啊!最重要的原因是日本饮食的方式其实和我一直秉持的饮食方式不相伯仲,所以我才会较为倾向于日式料理!

一切准备就绪,我就要出发去自己之前预定的学生宿舍了!可是首先必须到新宿去签约,所以我必须拎着大行李在移动着。。。但是才发现我有点进步了,因为过去没办法做到的事情,现在可以了(虽然拎行李的距离并不是很长)!日本东京的交通其实很方便,只是人太多了!!!!!!所以啊!原本很简单的事情就会变成很复杂、很困难。。。。。。不过还好我终于都可以签了约、拿了钥匙、朝向我的房间出发!

终于抵达住宿了。收拾了一会儿,我就去见周公,因为我太累了!!!!!!
傍晚也约了之前认识的日本友人、日本前辈吃晚餐,所以必须好好休息!

到了约定时间,但是却发现约定没有办法直接从我的住宿附近的地铁站到达,所幸我会及时询问他人,否则我就要迟到了!在抵达目的地之前,必须要经过一些巷子,我有新发现哦!那里有好多很“不一样”的小酒店,不必多说,大家都心神领会吧!日本友人和前辈带着我到上野附近的一家馆子吃饭,价格不菲!!!!!!真的很谢谢他们,当然也很不好意思啊!大伙儿聊天、聊天、聊天,天南地北好像不会停止,但是我们都还知道要赶列车,否则就糟糕了!
结账了以后,就各自回家咯!不过,一个朋友很够意思,陪我直到住宿的地方才自个儿回家,超级感谢!哦。。。对了,走着到地铁的路上,朋友指着电子看板上的气温指数——那是摄氏3度!

太迟了!周公找我了!
晚安!


PS:我竟然提不起劲拍照,因为太冷了,而且也没什么心情,毕竟此次的行程不是旅游啊!心情当然有差别!
