I'm always blown away by the comments and actions of some people. They're so self-involved and jaded; caught up in their own ways of life and not thinking about what they do to others. They might appear to be content but deep down they're not because some might consider material gain as everythin... Read more of this blog post »

我們住的Arima Grand Hotel是有馬溫泉區中最高級的一家,帶去的朋友們無一不讚歎它的新穎和豪華。


只有我一個人不太喜歡,總愛些古老與精緻的旅館,但為了大家,我也沒話說了。


唯一欣賞該酒店的,是它的浴室,設於九樓屋頂,室內種滿花草樹木,每一個不同的季節都搞些情趣,這次去適逢盛暑,浴室外插著綠竹,枝上掛摺紙鶴和燈籠之外,還有五顏六色的小紙條。


邊旁擺了筆硯,讓客人寫俳句和願望,然後親自綁上去。


入浴後滿身大汗,坐在竹旁喝杯冷茶,抽支煙,看紙條上寫了些甚麼?
