住淡水Mom and Dad's place。
就在Mom and Dad's party的時候
Recently, I met a TV program and soap opera producer, Zhang Linghui (pinyin). She told me this:
There are 360 degrees in this world. As long as you can grasp two of the 360 degrees, you'll have no trouble. The first degree - knowing what angle you will take on a situation. The second degree - knowing what attitude to carry in dealing with that situation.
It made me think a little bit. As I wade through problems, more or less I've been using these approaches, but putting it in words seems to be quite helpful. I'll try using this formula the next time I'm faced with adversity.
Actually, I first met Ms Zhang about four years ago. It was when I was still attending Waseda, but we were on break so I came back to Taiwan. Mama also happened to come to Taiwan for a few days and stayed with at Mom and Dad's in Danshui. Ms Zhang heard that Mama was in town and came to a party that Mom and Dad threw. She basically whirlwinded in, very quickly talked to Mama about "花之戀" and whirlwinded back out.
Who knew that four years later, the drama had been completed, its broadcast rights bought by FTV, and I became a reporter and anchor at FTV and was asked to host the screening press conference for the drama, and Ms Zhang and I meet again.
And it just so happens that recently, I've looking for advice from old timers on my media career. Perhaps this is fate, or perhaps this is my luck starting to change for the better. In any case, I will be paying her a visit soon.
