BRIDGE ... AMAZING AND UNIQUE 5

Dear loving readers,


As promised in my previous post, I shall present you another amazing and unique bridge from China, none  other than Beipanjiang River Railroad Bridge.


Below is some facts about this bridge, which some of you may know of. For the sake of everyone, I just give a quick briefing about this bridge.


Beipanjiang River Railroad Bridge, Guizhou , China













Beipanjiang River Railroad Bridge in Guizhou is an enormous railway bridge that was built as part of the 'Guizhou-Shuibai Railway Project'. Connecting two mountains over a deep ravine, at its highest point the bridge's deck sits 918ft above the ground. Incidentally the bridge connects two of the country's poorest areas.




This bridge reveals to me the higher the price you pay for it, the higher the reward you will get. Similar principle applies to this bridge, it is standing 918 ft above the ground, definitely gives it a much better view and quality of air.


At the same time, it is much harder to build and relatively take much longer time to build compare to the normal bridge. So is life. If you expect a much higher return, it is more than often that you have to pay a higher price than others. So stay focus on the reward and it will be very much easier for you to endure through the hardship during the processing of arriving at your destination.

Thanks for your time again. Please do offer other interpretation you may have on this bridge. Thank you in advance for your kind participation.


Look forward to hearing from you. Your continuous support is greatly appreciated.

BRIDGE ... AMAZING AND UNIQUE 4

Dear loving readers,


It is my pleasure to present you another amazing and unique bridge from UK.


Rolling Bridge, London , UK





Thomas Heatherwick's award-winning rolling bridge is an ingenious addition to the grand union canal system in London and is unique. Unlike regular movable canal bridges, the rolling bridge curls up to form an octagon by way of hydraulic jacks to let ships pass. It is twelve meters long and opens every Friday at noon.

Rather than a conventional opening bridge mechanism, consisting of a single rigid element that lifts to let boats pass, the Rolling Bridge gets out of the way by curling up until its two ends touch.

This bridge taught me to be flexible and mobile. To live long and strong, one has to be flexible and adaptable to any given situation. It is very true especially in today's competitive world, where everyone needs to be flexible and adaptable to the rapid changing marketing environment so as to survive in the market. Similarly, if the above rolling bridge does not have such flexibilities, it may not be able to keep its original design till to-date.


For those who wish to view other amazing bridge, which I have posted earlier, please click at the title of this post.


Thanks for your time again and hope to see you again for another amazing bridge.


Look forward to seeing you again and again,

BRIDGE ... AMAZING AND UNIQUE 3

Dear loving readers,


This is another bridge I like to share with you and the value it has taught me. I do believe it may be good for you to learn from the lesson which I have learned.




Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge , Brasilia , Brazil


also known as JK Bridge, is located in Brasilia, linking the South Lake, and Sebastian Paranoa the central of the Pilot Plan, through the Monumental Axis, over Lake Paranoa.

Inaugurated on 15 Dec 2002, the structure of the bridge has a total length of passage of 1200 meters, 24 meters wide with two lanes, each with three tracks of the running, two walkways on the sides for use by cyclists and pedestrians with 15 meters width and length of spams of 720 meters.







The JK Bridge in Brasilia is a lesson in elegant bridge design. The three huge diagonal arches over the deck of the bridge give the structure an amazing visual fluidity (Yes! but was the designer slightly inebriated when he designed this structure?)..


It reveals to us that no matter what is hidden or unseen, it is not important. What is important is to stand elegantly and perform its original function to bring the people over to the other end.


Therefore, those who choose to shine should stay focus on his pre-set goals and carry out his functions as the bridge shown above. Never let the past divert our attention, but stay focus on our goals.


So, next time whenever you have any disruption, think of the bridge above and do the same as it does.

Thanks for your time.


Have a fruitful day,

BRIDGE ... AMAZING AND UNIQUE 2

Dear loving readers,




The original Kintai Bridge was built in 1673 but collapsed due to flooding. The rebuilt bridge survived for more than 200 years until a typhoon destroyed it in 1950. The bridge that stands now over the Nishiki River has five wooden arches displaying an incredible amount of detail and craftmanship. Interesting fact: no nails or bolts have been used to build the arches, only clamps and wires.

This bridge, though more than two centuries old, yet still stands proudly and strongly in its own unique magnificent glory. It reminds us of the strength to stay alive to live to its fullest.


May this bridge leads us to the path of happiness in life and live to its fullest - that we shall not  be lacking in  anything whatsoever situation we are in.


Thanks for your time and trust it inspire you.

Three touching stories in Mandarin version only

Dear loving readers,


故事一、小孩的心

有一位单身女子刚搬了家,她发现隔壁住了一户穷人家,一个寡妇与两个小孩子。

有天晚上,那一带忽然停了电,那位女子只好自己点起了蜡烛;没一会儿,忽然听到有人敲门,原来是隔壁邻居的小孩子,只见他紧张地问:「阿姨,请问你家有蜡烛吗?女子心想:「他们家竟穷到连蜡烛都没有吗?千万别借他们,免得
被他们依赖了!於是,对孩子吼说:「没有!」正当她准备关上门时,那穷小孩展开关爱的笑容说:「我就知道你家一定没有!」

说完,竟从怀里拿出两根蜡烛,说:「妈妈和我怕你一个人住又没有蜡烛,所以我带两根来送你。」这刻女子自责、感动得热泪盈眶,将那小孩子紧紧地拥在怀里。

故事二、发生在欧洲

有一个小镇很久没有下雨了,令当地农作物损失惨重,於是牧师把会众集合起来,准备在教堂里开一个祈求降雨的祷告会;会众中有一个小女孩, 因个子太小,几乎没有人看得到她,但她也来参加祈雨祷告会。

就在这时侯,牧师注意到小女孩所带来的东西,激动地在台上指著她说:「那位小妹妹很让我感动!」於是会众顺著他手指的方向看了过去,牧师接著说:「我们今天来祷告祈求上帝降雨,可是整个会堂中,只有她一个人今天带著雨伞!」会众仔细一看,果然,她的座位旁挂了一把红色的小雨伞;这时大家沉静了一下,紧接而来的,是一阵掌声与泪水交织的美景。有时我们不得不说:小孩子其实一点都不小」,他(她)们其实很「大」!他 (她)们的爱心很大!他;(她)们的信心很大!

故事三、我们只不方便三小时

那天跟老公幸运地订到了票回婆家,上车後却发现有位女士坐在我们的位子上,老公示意我先坐在她旁边的位子,却没有请这位女士让位。我仔细一看,发现她右脚有一点不方便,才了解老公为何不请她让出位子。他就这样从嘉义一直站到台
北,从头到尾都没向这位女士表示这个位子是他的下了车之後,心疼老公的我跟他说:「让位是善行,但从嘉义到台北这堋久,大可中途请她把位子还给你,换你坐一下。

老公却说:「人家不方便一辈子,我们就不方便这三小时而已。」听到老公这堋说,我相当感动,有这堋一位善良又为善不欲人知的好老公,让我觉得世界都变得温柔许多。心念一转,世界可能从此不同,人生中,每一件事情,都有转向的能力,就看我们怎么想,怎么转。我们不会在三分钟内成功,但也许只要花一分钟,生命从此不同。你看完这篇短文後,可以马上起身去擦桌子,或洗碗;可以把报纸放一边,闭起眼睛沉思一会;也可以把这篇短文,转寄给很多朋友。


当然,我最希望你选择最後这一项,谁知道,你可能会改变很多人的一生。

们不一定会因为赚很多的钱而富有,但我们可以因付出的善念而使心中富有

BRIDGE...AMAZING AND UNIQUE 1

Dear loving readers,

This beautiful arched bridge in Lake Austin was built by Miro Rivera Architects and is used to connect the client's main house to the smaller guest house on the other side of the pond. To make the bridge seem as natural as possible within its surroundings, they made the decking and reed-like hand rails imperfect but still structurally sound.





The above photos are not only pleasing to our eyes, but this remarkable result delivered by its builders also demonstrate well the power of our human mindset and determination. So, stress your potential to its fullest, so as to leave behind a remarkable legacy, like the above bridge.

Though it is not easy, but not impossible. It inspired me to work toward my goal and hope the same to you.

Regardless of your current status of your project, be it a failure or WIP., always remember that the bridge is able to lead you to the path of success.

Trust you are inspires as I was. Thanks for taking your precious time to read this post.
