Color Blindness



When I was standard 3 in primary school, I went through an free eyes examination at school held by Ministry of Health, Kuantan. I had been informed by medical staff that I am a color blindness patient and in the category of Red-green color blindness. During the examination, the staff open a book for me to see and I had to tell her what was the numbers in it. However, I found it was quite difficult to see the number in every pages due to my inability to perceive differences between some of the colors. I felt ashamed and embarrassed to have this disability caused by genetic nature. There is no treatment for color blindness, thus made me feeling inferior in my childhood days.




For self-testing:
What is the number in each of the 4 pictures below??

每一个人都有他的长处与缺点。
世界上没有十全之美。
长处令人自豪,缺点让人尴尬。
这些并不是生活的驻点。
要是为了自己的缺势而感到无奈,
那么生活就没有意义了。

在成长的过程中,因为感受过往日的失败,
让我们十分谨慎,要开创新的天地也得三思。
但是,没有尝试,就不能感受到成就的成果,
失败或成功, 不是终点,而只是另一段路程的启发点。
