Navneet:归心似箭(6)

三泰虎译文《Navneet:归心似箭(6)》。Navneet:在上海时,我们每天出发就是去豫园,回来也是从豫园返回。如果我吧嗒个不停,我的妻子有时候会让步,然后傍晚将至时,我们就会匆忙去前一天晚上说好的地 方。通常来说,我不会去惹恼妻子,虽然这无助于增加“机会”,因为仅有这种机会存在时才可能增加。好吧,也许你会说我在撒谎,其实我 是独自“躺”在那,一直在纳闷我是否破坏了一开始就压根不存在的机会,并为我从未犯过的错误感到伤心,直至睡着。

When we are in Shanghai our day starts with going to Yuyuan Garden and often ends there. If I crib noisily then my wife sometimes relents and towards the evening we rush to see some other places that we had agreed upon to visit on the preceding night. I usually do not annoy her at night though it has never helped to improve any 'chances' because something can be improved only if it exists. Well you may say I am lying. Well, yes I ‘lie’ alone, wondering if I spoiled the chance that was never there to begin with and sulk and feel sorry for the mistakes I haven't done untill I fall asleep.

在上海时,我们每天出发就是去豫园,回来也是从豫园返回。如果我吧嗒个不停,我的妻子有时候会让步,然后傍晚将至时,我们就会匆忙去前一天晚上说好的地方。通常来说,我在夜晚不会去惹恼妻子,虽然这无助于增加“机会”,因为仅有这种机会存在时才可能增加。好吧,也许你会说我在撒谎,其实我是独自“躺”在那,一直在纳闷我是否破坏了一开始就压根不存在的机会,并为我从未犯过的错误感到伤心,直至睡着。

The day started dull and gloomy and it was snowing.

Chinese New Year heralds spring..or it was celebrated to say 'Good Bye' to winter in olden times but now often the winter is very much around when the festival comes. All flowers are grown elsewhere in nurseries and pots are embedded in the baskets hung from the poles, containers on pavements or beds at round abouts or city squares.

天气阴沉沉的,还下着雪。

春节预示着春天的到来。在古时候,春节是跟冬天说“再见”的欢庆日子,如今的春节还是在寒冷的冬天度过。你只能在温室里看到花儿盛开。

On 8th February she had far reaching plans- yes, plans for going even farther than Yuyan garden.... to some silk market.

We reached there past noon which is the best time for us to reach the first place on the list. As expected, the market was closed. The workers had left for their homes.

2月8日,她想出了一个“长远”计划,是的,计划去比豫园更远的地方.....也就是去丝绸市场。

我们过了中午时分才到达那里。对于我们来说,在这个时候到达当天行程的第一站是最合适的。不出所料,丝绸市场关闭了。员工已经回家去了。

I was sure that the blame would come to me and it did because she had asked me to take her there the previous day and I had insisted on going to the computer market at Xu Jia Hui. Though I had nothing to buy, it was just to test if she acceded to my wishes. Luckily for me, when we reached there, we found the market closed for the new year. She didn’t say anything but surely added a minus point in my secret score card that she keeps and the sum total of points in which never becomes positive.But our trip was not a total waste. We wouldn't have seen another brilliant part of the city.

果然,妻子又怪我了,因为她昨天就叫我带她过来,而我当时坚持要去徐家汇的电脑市场。其实我没什么好买的,只是测试她是否会如我所愿。幸运地是,我们到达那里时发现市场关闭了。她什么也没说,不过肯定在我的秘密计分卡上减了一分,而这个积分卡上的总分永远是负的。

So after finding the Silk market closed we had no choice but to return to the YuYuan Gardenand we took the bus back for
the routine pilgrimage.

Yuyuan Garden still has a traditional Chinese look. Here in the market squares where the narrow streets in the ancient township meet they make fantastic lanterns welcoming New Year every year. Last year too I posted many pictures of fascinating tableaux based on mythological stories of valour, love, benediction and miracles.

发现丝绸市场关闭后,我们没得选择,只好返回豫园。像例行朝圣一样,我们又坐上了前往豫园的公交车。

豫园保留了传统中国的古色古香。市场、广场、狭窄街道的交汇处,到处悬挂着欢庆春节的灯笼。

It was bitterly cold and flurries floated in the air. It was difficult to hold the camera steady for taking the pictures.

She could not resist her desire of checking in the Pearl City or Village, I don't know what it is called but it is there in one of the Gold Souks. It was closed. On or way down, I clicked some pictures of the gifts and show pieces the rich buy to express their love, power and reach.

As my wife got busy with her shopping/window shopping I took leave of her to go around and take some picturtes of the festivities, adornment and decorations.

天气冷得要命,空中飘着小雪,要想握稳相机来拍照是困难的。

趁着我妻子忙着购物/逛商店,我转身离开去拍照。

以下是读者和Navneet的讨论:

Sailor Uncle, I hope aunty does not read this. She will blame u of becoming too romantic at this age.

水手大叔,我希望阿姨不会看到此文,否则她会怪你这么一大把年龄了还如此浪漫。

navneetkumarbakshi


Hello Ashu,
Where have I shown my romantic side? Anyway now she doesn't worry. Either she is very sure that I will not cheat her or she knows that I can't.


Navneet


Ashu,你好,我哪里展示了浪漫一面?她不会担心的,她不是肯定我不会骗她,就是知道我不敢骗她。


ashualec


Uncle what is this??


usually do not annoy her at night though it has never helped to improve any 'chances' because something can be improved only if it exists. Well you may say I am lying. Well, yes I ‘lie’ alone, wondering if I spoiled the chance that was never there to begin with and sulk and feel sorry for the mistakes I haven't done untill I fall asleep.


大叔,以下这段话怎么说?


“通常来说,我在夜晚不会去惹恼妻子,虽然这无助于增加“机会”,因为仅有这种机会存在时才可能增加。好吧,也许你会说我在撒谎,其实我是独自“躺”在那,一直在纳闷我是否破坏了一开始就压根不存在的机会,并为我从未犯过的错误感到伤心,直至睡着”


navneetkumarbakshi


Oho Ashu Hahaha- I totally forgot about it, so you understand my state of mind. I have become senile :)


Navneet


哦,哈哈,我完全忘了,你现在理解我的心态了吧。我已经高龄了,不行了啊 :)

Thanks Vijay. Indeed they have a great aesthetic sense. It shows in all their art and craft. Like us it's been passed over from generation to generation and improved upon.


Navneet


谢谢Vijay,他们的确有很棒的美感,可以从工艺品中看出来。跟我们一样,这些是一代代传下来并不断改进的。

Dear Navneet:

There is an error in the blog, RMB is called yuan, while Jap's currency is called yen.

Best wishes.

文中有一个错误,人民币叫做“yuan”,日本货币叫做“yen”

navneetkumarbakshi


Thanks Uni,


I have made the correction.
Navneet


谢谢,已经改过来了。
