Tình yêu của bạn màu gì? Hãy khám phá.

Tình yêu của bạn màu gì?
Một khám phá rất thú vị. Bạn hãy nhớ, ở từng thời điểm tình yêu của bạn có thể có một màu khác nhau. Và tôi hy vọng rằng tình yêu của bạn luôn và sẽ di chuyển lòng vòng trong ba màu sau: màu hồng, màu đỏ và màu xanh lá. Đừng để tình yêu của bạn là một màu đen thù hận và căm ghét.

Hãy cảm nhận tình yêu và chọn một màu tình yêu để nói lên một phần tình yêu của bạn dành cho những người yêu ở hiện tại và ở quá khứ bạn nhé.

Màu trắng:
Tình yêu màu trắng, đây là màu đầu tiên và màu cuối cùng của tình yêu.
Tình yêu bạn màu trắng khi:
1. Khi bạn chưa yêu ai và chưa ai yêu bạn, tình yêu của bạn là màu trắng.
2. Khi đã chia tay và cả hai vô tư lự với nhau, chẳng chút nhớ nhung, luyến tiếc, thù hận hay căm ghét... Vô cảm giác.
3. Khi cả hai đều chết. Chết là hết. Hy vọng là bạn chưa chết.




Màu vàng:
Tình yêu màu vàng là Khi người con trai yêu trước người con gái và đang đeo đuổi và hy vọng chiếm được trái tim người con gái. Đây là một điều rất quý báu như vàng, vì con trai luôn nên chủ động yêu trước, đeo đuổi và thể hiện.



Màu xanh dương:

Tình yêu màu xanh dương là Khi người con gái yêu người con trai trước. Người con gái đang hy vọng (màu xanh là màu hy vọng) có thể tạo được sự thu hút ở người con trai, và hy vọng rằng một ngày gần nhất người con trai mà mình đang thầm yêu sẽ đến bên và ngõ ý lời yêu thương với mình.




Màu hồng:
Đây là màu đẹp nhất của tình yêu. Khi hai trái tim yêu nhau chân thành và chân thật, không dối trá, không vụ lợi, luôn mong muốn những điều tốt đẹp nhất đến với người mình yêu và sẵn sàng làm tất cả vì người mình yêu.



Màu đỏ:
Đây là một tình yêu cháy bỏng, cả hai khao khát những giây phút gần gủi nhau, kề cận nhau, ôm ấp nhau...(không dám nói thêm) Nói tóm lại, chẳng bao giờ muốn rời nhau cả. Còn cái sự khao khát gần nhau này có thể xuất phát từ nhu cầu thể xác và cũng có thể là xuất phát từ tình yêu chân thật và cũng có thể là sự mua vui lẫn nhau.


Màu xanh lá cây:
Tình yêu màu xanh lá cây là khi tình yêu của bạn đã đơm bông kết trái, có thể là một gia đình vợ chồng son, có thể đã có những đứa con xinh xắn, có thể đã xây dựng được một tổ ấm để gọi là gia đình. Còn yêu thương nhau thật sự hay không thì chưa biết.


Màu bạc:
Tình yêu màu bạc là khi người con trai đã rời bỏ người con gái ra đi, và người con gái vẫn còn ít nhiều luyến tiếc hay nhung nhớ.
Sự ra đi có thể là do sự phụ bạc của người con trai. Cũng có thể là do người con trai đã chết để người con gái lại bạc đầu nhung nhớ.


Màu tím:
Tình yêu màu tím là khi người con gái đã rời bỏ người con trai (có thể do người con gái đã chết hoặc do người con gái phụ lòng), và người con trai vẫn còn nhớ nhớ thương thương người con gái đó. Người con trai âm thầm thương nhớ. Một màu tím buồn.


Màu đen:
Tình yêu màu đen là tình yêu khủng khiếp nhất. Cả hai đã chia tay, nhưng lòng thù hận, căm ghét nhau chất đầy. Khủng khiếp quá. Chẳng còn gì để nói. Nên không nói thêm cho màu này nữa. Stop!



Màu cam:
Tình yêu màu cam là một sự nửa đỏ nửa hồng. Yêu nhau như màu hồng (chân thật và chân thành) nhưng không còn ở cạnh nhau nữa để có thể chứa chan tận hưởng những giây phút gần gủi nhau. Sự chia xa này có thể là để tốt cho nhau hay vì một sự hy sinh xa cách nào đó hay cũng có thể là một sự hiểu lầm rồi chia xa. Nhưng dù xa nhau vì lí do nào, đôi con tim luôn thỉnh thoảng trộm nhớ về nhau, về những kĩ niệm đẹp của hai người. Đây cũng được xem là một tình yêu đẹp. Yêu không nhất thiết phải chiếm hữu nhau.




Hãy gửi bài này cho mọi người để họ cùng mình chọn màu cho những tình yêu mà họ đang có nhé!!

The Ashoka Pillar of Delhi






One thousand and six hundred years old, made of pure wrought iron, weighs six tons, 7.375 meters high, standing bare for all these years in the scorching climate of Delhi, no fungus, no rust, no corrosion, nothing could scar even the inscriptions made on it; this pillar literally stands tall as a wonder for the modern man to witness the greatness of his ancestors; who could do what the space-age scientists not. The Iron Pillar of Delhi (also known as Ashoka Iron Pillar) belongs to the ‘Chandragupta 11 –Vikramaditya’ (between 3rd and 4the century AD) period remains as a riddle even to the modern metallurgists who rack their brains to find out the secret behind the eternal youth of this wrought iron pillar...

Ajanta Caves







Believed to be built between 2nd century B.C. and 4th Century A.D., Ajanta caves are located about 100 kilometers from Aurangabad district of Maharashtra state in India.

Introduction
A good place to visit in Agra City – India is Taj Mahal. It locates in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh It is an gorgeous place which was built for love. It is situated on the bank of the river Yamuna.

Love affair
Taj Mahal is a mausoleum. It is built up in memory of Mumtaz Mahal, a second wife of Emperor Shahjahan. She died after giving birth to their 14th child. Mumtaz Mahal is also a Muslim Persian princess.

In 1607 when Shahjahan was not yet a king, but a prince, he met her in Meena Bazaar. But then he got married. The first wife he married to was not her. In those days princes did not marry just for love.

In 1612, he married Mumtaz Mahal when he was 20 years old and she was at her age of 19. She stayed loyal by his side through good and even bad time. They sometimes live in the luxurious royal palaces sometimes in the transient tents of war camps. Her love to him completely won the heart of the prince.

In AD 1628, Khurram became king after a bloody battle of succession.

In 1631, Shahjahan went on an expedition to the south and, as always, Mumtaz Mahal accompanied him. She died when accompanying her husband in a campaign to crush a rebellion. When she died, she was just 39 years old. Shahjahan was inconsolable and contemporary chronicles tell of the royal court mourning for two years. there was no music, no feasting, and no celebration of any kind.

As she lay dying, she asked the emperor for four promises: first buiding the Taj Mahal, second that he should remarry, third being kind to their children, fourth visiting the tomb on her death anniversary. The first promise is why the Taj Mahal was constructed.


Construction
It is one of the most flawless architectural constructions of the world. The mausoleum began in 1633. 20,000 workers contributed in the building for 17 years. The most skilled architects, inlay craftsmen, calligraphers, stone-carvers and masons came from all across Indian and lands as distant as Persia and Turkey. The master mason was from Baghdab, an expert in building the double dome from Persia, and an inlay specialist from Delhi.

For centuries, the Taj Mahal has inspired poets, painters and musicians to try and capture its elusive magic in word, colour and song. It is one of the most flawless architectural creations of the world. Since the 17th century, travellers have crossed continents to come and see this ultimate memorial to love, and few have been unmoved by its incomparable beauty.

Beauty of Taj Mahal during Day
The Taj Mahal shows a different aspect of beauty at different times of the day. The sight of the Taj awash with the subtle pinks of dawn is an unforgettable sight. Sunsets stain the Taj an exotic shade of orange. But nothing beats the poignant beauty of the Taj seen when the cool white marble is bathed in the soft silver light of the moon. Even in the bright light of the day, this wonder of the world shines with an awe-inspiring loveliness.
The glory of the monument is strangely undiminished by the crowds of tourists who visit each day, as small and insignificant as ants in the face of this immense and captivating monument. That said, the Taj is at its most alluring in the relative quiet of early morning, shrouded in mists and bathed with a soft red glow. As its vast marble surfaces fall into shadow or reflect the sun, its colour changes, from soft grey and yellow to pearly cream and dazzling white; it's well worth visiting at different times. This play of light is an important decorative device, symbolically implying the presence of Allah, who is never represented in anthropomorphic form.

Travel to Hong Kong

I visited Hong Kong for the first time in 1995 when the territory’s sovereignty hadn’t yet been transferred to the People’s Republic of China. At that time the Kai Tak airport was cramped and narrow, perched on the edge of the sea in Kowloon Peninsula. It resembled Nha Trang airport (VietNam) before it was moved to Cam Ranh. But Kai Tak airport was considerably more dangerous.

It was said that only experienced pilots could planes to Hong Kong, because Kai Tak airport was located in such dangerous terrain. To one side was sea and high buildings. On the other side the runway was very short. One story ran that a pilot, when landing at the Kai Tak airport, could see families sitting down at their tables for the eight o’clock dinner. Local people living around the airport could watch the pilot talking to a beautiful air hostess as he came in to land. Whether you believe this story or not is up to you, but it is one of the current urban legends relating to Hong Kong’s recent past.

The skyscrapers of The Two International Centre

The last time I came to Hong Kong was in mid-July 2007, after the 10th anniversary of the handover of the territory to the People’s Republic of China. The new Hong Kong airport is very modern with an attractive architectural style. This differs from the international airport in Malaysia, which is modern but architecturally unimpressive. When we arrived in Hong Kong, the weather was boiling hot. While still on the plane, tourists coming to Hong Kong for the first time were surprised by the skyscrapers leaning forward on the mountains, overlooking the sea on a hot July morning.

Tsing Ma Bridge

From the airport we went straight by car to the centre of the city, passing over Tsing Ma bridge, which is over 2 km long. This is the longest suspension bridge in the world and was the pride of Hong Kong in the past. We drove past the Container harbour, which has the reputation of being the busiest harbour in the world – busier than Rotterdam harbour in Holland, Singapore or Kobe harbour in Japan. Hong Kong is really noisy and heavily populated. It covers an area of more than 1,120 square km, consisting of 260 islands of all shapes and sizes, in which Hong Kong island is the largest. There are many European people living here.

Tsing Ma Bridge

Of the total area, 70% consists of hills and mountains and 30% is residential land housing nearly 7 million people amid a powerful and still fast-developing economy. Most people live in apartment blocks built over 30 years ago. These stand next to more modern newly-built buildings. In Hong Kong about 95% of the population are Cantonese Chinese. They are famous for the food specialties they have brought from the south of China. The rest of the population are foreigners from European countries, most of them British. There are also Vietnamese people here.

We stayed in Tsim Sha Tsui in the Kowloon peninsula, where there are many hotels and churches built in the British architectural style. The noisiest place is the trading and living area of the Chinese in Hong Kong. Shops, restaurants, Internet cafes and night markets stretch from Tsim Sha Tsui to Jordan, Yau Ma Tei and Mongkok. Hordes of tourists are attracted by the Ladies market and Temples market, where various kinds of goods are displayed on the pavements. After the British won the Opium war in the 1840s, Kowloon peninsula and the New Territories were ceded to Britain for 99 years.

Hong Kong Disneyland

For me, Hong Kong is no longer as noisy as it was in the past, though Disneyland was built 2 years ago and has attracted a great number of new international and regional tourists including Vietnamese. They take the entire family with them to the park. There are many amusement activities and performances on indoor and outdoor stages. Children especially like to come here because they can meet Donald Duck and Golden Mickey Mouse – famous cartoons characters.

Besides Disneyland, there’s also the ocean Park in Hong Kong. In my opinion, Hong Kong is the best place to locate an Ocean Park, because it is a suitable destination for both adults and children. Visitors coming here at weekends are mostly Hong Kong locals. In the Ocean Park, you will experience the exhilaration of sitting in a cable car being winched past the stunning sea and mountains. Sometimes the car has to stop and hangs stationary in mid air because of the strong winds. I like the Middle Kingdom most where you can take photos in the film studios. They remind me of the historic period dramas of TVB Hong Kong, which were so popular with the Vietnamese about 10 years ago.

In the underground or subway system I felt a little afraid in the cool depths, even though there are lights and many people about. Because of this, despite working as a tour guide, I rarely go down the Cu Chi tunnels with tourists. Sometimes when I take business trips overseas, I have to choose between the underground and the tram – whichever suits my pocket. Using the underground in Hong Kong is, for me, the easiest in the world. Not like using the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) subway system in Singapore! There are many underground routes in Hong Kong to serve the Hong Kong population. Most tourists know how to use the underground.

The bustle and energy of Hong Kong brings us exhilarating moments and leaves us with unforgettable experiences. I hope to return to Hong Kong one day.

Transcript The Joke

Here is the transcript for the video "the joke" from youtube:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=7G9Zuq1GS5E

-Johnson Residence... Oh, hi, Deena! How's the trip?
-We are having so much fun; The snow is perfect. How's everything at home?
-Well, your cat died.
-What? Oh my god! Cuddles is dead? Oh my god. You can't just drop a bomb on me like that. You've got to ease me into it. You've got to say something like "cuddles got on the roof and he jumped off and broke one of his legs. So he was able to drag himself for a few miles and ran into a pack of wild boars, but he survived that attack and he went looking for help down to the old neighbor lady's house down the street, but she didn't help him; she hit him repeatedly with a broom, and she broke his spine, but he was able to, you know, paw his way down to the river where he fell in and he was molested by a beaver... and the beaver left him for dead but cuddles floated downstream until he eventually washed up at our house and from there he pawed his way in to his little kitty bed where he took his last little kitty breath and he died!" Well, any other news?
-well, your mom got on the roof.

Youtube The Joke

Summary: This is the talk of two girls Johnson and Deena. Deena was on her trip and phoned Johnson. Johnson broke the news that Deena's cat whose name was Cuddles died. The cat was very strong and had a miserable journey before he died. And then the other news is that Deena's mother died too. All is joke.
