Inspired by Jared from “Singapore Man of Leisure” blogpost here, I decide to write a post with Chinese Heading. No intention to pay SMOL copyright fees...haha.. I am sure he does not want either.
Unlike him, who documented Alibaba Jack's Ma famous philosophy, I herein document a phrase from a relatively unknown (to Singaporeans at least) 涂磊. He said the below phrase which leaves a deep impression on me.
Translated in English as follows, although the wordings are not as meaningful as derived from Chinese character.
“In life, you will not suffer forever, but you will definitely suffer for a period of time. If you run away from short term sufferings, you will definitely suffer forever!”
爱情保卫战 - A TV Serial on "Love Preservation"
Who is 涂磊?
During one of my business trips in China, I chanced upon this Chinese TV show It is a reality show presenting couples who faced relationship problems and seek help publicly on TV. The couples' problems will be brief, before a panel of expert commentators give their views and advices helping to resolve the couples’ love life issues.
涂磊 is one of key teachers/ commentators in the show who I look upon to. At the same time, he is also TV hosts for other programs.
How real is the reality show, is not my primary concern. I am more intrigued to find out the typical problems couples faced, and the valuable advice from the teachers to improve and sustain a relationship.
