The Nurturing

Born in Penang to the son for a Headmaster, the family often had to relocate after a year or two and as a result “In one year, I might be attending two schools.  Thus, before I settle in and make friends, I would have to move off to another school. As a result of this constant relocation, I learnt to be self-reliant,” says Dato’ Roslan, who is now a loving father of two sons.

The younger Roslan often spent days filled with reading sci-fi novels and listening to music often finishing up to two novels a day.  “The reason why I find about sci-fi novels is interesting because it often dwells on the development of societies as a result of different and often alien environments.  Here writers often explore and expound on the evolution of society and mankind as a result of progress”.  It was this hobby helped me to look at things from a very holistic viewpoint.” He recalls.  From lower secondary onward whilst growing up in Penang, Roslan reminisced how lucky he was to be able hike up Penang Hill enjoying the camaraderie of his friends or sometimes camping out at the beach at a time when the sea was still crystal clear.
During his upper secondary education, one of Roslan’s teachers was a Peace Corp volunteer, Eric Whitzler who was trained as an architect. Through him, Dato’ Roslan was introduced into to the world of Architecture.  “As a result, the first ever career that I thought of pursuing, was in architecture. And that ambition never changed. Except that now, my knowledge of architecture is put to good use in my property development company, which to me is a more comprehensive approach to the built environment,” he says happily.

夫妻相处的艺术

Share this on WhatsApp相处艺术。家庭的气氛很重要,需要夫妇来经营。家庭气氛好,孩子在这样的环境下成长,人格才能健全。但是现在的夫妻关系好不好?  不好,冲突很大。   我在海口推广中国文化时,有一次跟一群朋友吃饭,了解到同桌的四位女性,三位已经离婚了,一位准备离婚。相逢即是有缘,这个饭可不能白吃,要对得起这些有缘人,所以我就慢慢找机会。跟大家说着话,突然话锋一转,我说:“夫妻相处只要守住一句真言,保证白头偕老。” 那位准备离婚的朋友眼睛瞪得很大,耳朵都竖起来了。我接着就说:“结婚以后,只看对方的优点,不看对方的缺点。” 我这个话讲完,这位朋友眉头深锁,回了我一句话:“蔡老师,好难。”     有那么难吗?   我们不妨看看身旁热恋中的男女,真的印证了一句俗语,“只羡鸳鸯不羡仙”。常常五点半下班,他五点的时候就已经坐不住了,“怎么这么慢,下班后我要跟我女朋友看电影,还要带她去买东西”,每天只想着怎么样让女朋友高兴一点。那个时候心里想着我能为她做什么,所以恋爱的感觉是温暖甜美的。当有一个人处处都替你着想的时候,你会很欢喜,甚至半夜还会笑醒。   …
