雪香,國立藝專畢業,從事藝術工作多年後,參與921救災,愛上南投的好山好水,買下一片梅園開始有機耕種,自己蓋房子住,創十方芽養生醋工坊,教授瑜珈,村民對她唯一的抱怨是,有訪客時笑聲太響,擾人午睡。

字幕

I meet a lot of happy people here in Taiwan. 

我在台灣遇見很多快樂的人

But I think the happiest I've met so far is this woman.  Her name is A-Shiang. 

但最快樂的莫過於這個名叫阿香的女人

 

A-shiang lives alone, surrounded by flowers and nature, in a little house she built by herself.
阿香自己蓋這間小房子居住
周圍長滿花花草草 

She invited us over for a visit on a hot Sunday afternoon.

這個炎熱的下午我們應邀拜訪她

 

We drank a little tea, explored her garden, then set out on a fifteen minute walk to A-Shiang's organic farm. 

喝她泡的好茶、探索她的花園之後
走15分鐘到她的有機梅園

Along the way, she kept everyone in stitches with funny stories. 

一路上,她吸引大家聽她講有趣的故事

Like the time she spent six days living in the Johhanesburg airport in South Africa.  Something about a visa problem.

像說:因為沒有先辦簽證被迫在南非

約翰尼斯堡機場待六天的經過

Well, everyone but me since I still don't understand Chinese. Anyway, she describes her life as a series of happy accidents… 

除了我還聽不懂中文以外

大家都聽她談著這些她解釋為快樂的意外事件

 

We missed the turn for A-Shiang's farm because she wanted to show us the local tourist attraction. 

略過阿香梅園的入口

因為她要帶我們去一個遊客景點

A natural spring that bubbles not just water… but also natural gas.  

一個冒著氣泡的泉….不只有水還有瓦斯

 

After a hard climb we reached A-Shiang's farm. 

爬上坡陡到達阿香梅園

She grows small plums called mei. 

她種的這種小李子叫梅

They're popular in Taiwan for all sorts of things. 

梅在台灣很普遍可做成各式產品

Each of her trees has a number. 

每棵梅樹都有號碼

A-Shiang lost track exactly, but she thinks she has 186 mei trees which she cares for all by herself. 

總共有186號,但她說有幾棵重複因此不是很準確
她自己照顧這些梅樹

 

That seems like a big job for such a little person. 

對一個驕小的女子來說是很大的工作

But with her positive spirit and endless energy,

但她樂觀的精神和無限的精力

A-Shiang doesn't seem like one to complain. 

阿香不像是個會抱怨的人

I expect she just laughs about it.

她只是用大笑置之
