浦甘-金黃色的塔墓

0

浦甘地方不大,但由於天氣炎熱和乾燥,大風刮起了風沙,有點像美國西部牛仔的小鎮。在外地,要到名勝地方,通常要坐數小時車,但在浦甘,只需踩半小時單車,便會由住宿的Nyuang_U區,到達佛塔林立的舊區。

剛來到浦甘第一天,還未熟習環境,當然不敢貿然踩單車,安頓好行李後,馬上僱一輛馬車,直奔往最著名、全浦甘平原最高的Shwesandaw Pagoda看日落。Shwesandaw Pagoda塔身不大,但塔下的梯級極高及陡斜,我幾乎要用爬的方式才能上到塔上,聽說有人曾在這裏發生意外。我雖說不上用九牛二虎之力攀爬,但仍要小心奕奕,當到達塔頂的一刻,馬上被眼前的景象吸引,一望無際的大平原上,豎立著無數細小的佛塔,這股氣勢,是我遊覽多年來,最狀觀的。

我急不及待便拿著相機拍照,越近五時,塔頂越來越多人,大家都是為看日落而來的。一名來自法國的遊客對我說,他在這裏已是第三天,過去兩天天氣不好,拍不到「咸蛋黃」,他決定今天再多留一天,假如也不幸看不到,便會離開。聽他說完後,心裏當堂一沉,難道自己那麼不好彩?看見遠處還有一大片厚雲在遠處,我也打定輸數。不過,原來我腳頭也不錯,太陽臨落山前,在雲隙之中露出金黃色的光線,我雖拍不到一大個日落的「咸蛋黃」,但也可拍到金色的浦甘平原,帶挈法國遊客也可拍到難得一見的日落景色,看來他也要多謝我呢﹗

數千個大大小小的佛塔豎立在浦甘的平原,十分狀觀。

Shwesandaw Pagoda是浦甘最高的佛塔,也是觀看日出日落的勝地。

Chee

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」
