Sat, 23 Apr 2011 19:11:00 +0000I think the audience of a symphony orchestra concert is the best.
Sun, 15 Nov 2009 13:18:00 +0000It was a surprising pleasant read. It helps me to understand why people including myself, make choices and regret later. Why we always yearn and regret for things we couldn't get or didn't do?
Sat, 14 Nov 2009 07:08:00 +0000Almost 2 years have passed since I was up the mountain. Writing a post only at this point of time serve as the chance to reflect and just tell what was still enact in my memories and how these memories made me feel now. I want to wait till the pain and joy I went through at that time are diluted. I think these would be my real learnings.
Sun, 01 Jun 2008 07:25:00 +0000After 2 years, I finally get to dive again. This dive is quite deep, up to 30m. At this depth, air get used up pretty fast.
Sat, 03 May 2008 13:59:00 +0000I'm definitely working harder. But not playing harder. Shit.
Sat, 19 Apr 2008 16:51:00 +0000This is the MV of the OST. I loved this song when I watched the movie earlier this year, but I didn't know what's the title. But somehow, I chanced upon it and there was a moment of deja-vu. A search on Google revealed to me that it is the theme song for Umizaru 2! Cool find!
Thu, 07 Feb 2008 15:22:00 +0000A question on morality.
Mon, 04 Feb 2008 03:53:00 +0000Saw the dvd of this sell-out performance last weekend. Bought it. This is really great. Some this has become the 1st item I got on my 2008 wish list.

The year begins with the question with what I’m going to work as in the future. It automatically leads me to think what kind of life I want. How do I want to live my next few decades?
These thoughts spiraled through my head. The answers didn’t come immediately. I know what I have to do. Be honest with myself. It’s not easy. Sometimes I think I might not even know if I’m lying to myself. Sometimes I don’t get any answers for the questions I asked. It is worst then not getting answers.
I thought about The Alchemist - Answer to Your Calling. If I do that, I can get the riches or treasure of my life. Else, I can just lose the direction in my life. It’s not as simple as just following my own thoughts. Especially when I mentioned I can’t tell what is real all the time.
But I know I’m still on this journey (as long as I live). I’ll grow to be who I want myself to be with no regrets. I have to write down what I think is the truth for me. Events that happen around me continue to help me be in-tune with my own feelings and values. Lucky for them, I’m able to better know who I am. I learn about how turn-off I can be about some other people. I ask myself why I’m turn-off. And I get my answer (thank you). I don’t like self-centered behavior, and words/actions that neglect other people’s feelings. I’m equally guilty of behaving the same way at times. I don’t want to judge anyone just because they have these personality traits, so I just write down I don’t like what they are doing. They are not wrong in my opinion. We are just different. I think I have a real high score for F to make me feel this way about others. I know this means I have to work on social dynamics and interpersonal relationships. Making people feel good about themselves is my calling but I don’t expect just anyone to understand and feel the same as I do.
I kept thinking that before I can help anyone, I have to deal with myself and make sure I’m congruent and doing well. It means take care of my own problems before I start meddling into others. Down the road, I came to know that my problems will never end. New ones come and old ones resurface. If I only help myself, I can never answer the call. I’ll never be happy. In life, the realization always comes at the least expected moment. As a surprise. I was watching the latest TV hit, Heroes. From it, I realized that even heroes have their problems to solve constantly. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. But weaknesses shouldn’t be stopping us from helping the rest. Weaknesses are there so that we have to work with other people and we need each other help to improve our life. It means we need to learn to work with people, to reach to the ones who need help and from them, we can get to learn how we can carry on with a meaningful life. You might not be able to help
I don’t need to be the greatest man in the world. I just have to be the greatest man I want to be, in the way I want to be.
And when I think further about a few words my friends had shared on impermanence. I think I’m experiencing it with my changing thoughts and beliefs. I feel differently about other people and myself already since the time I’m revealed to some answers. It just happens and certain emotions and opinions about things just go away bit by bit. Welcome to the new rules, I say.
Sun, 13 Jan 2008 09:31:00 +00002 weeks into 2008, I was already asked several times about my goals or resolution for the year. I'm not planning to write a list of them this year. Instead, I want to adopt an attitude and carry it through. I came up with a mission statement for myself to stay focus.
Sun, 13 Jan 2008 09:09:00 +0000As mentioned earlier, I watched the highly acclaimed japanese animation in the week. This weekend was filled with more Japan stuff. I bought 3 more Japanese movies, Hula Girls, Umizaru 1 & 2 and watched 2 of them.
Thu, 10 Jan 2008 15:31:00 +0000After so many years, I still think that the Japanese are the world's best storyteller. Their manga, drama and anime are proof of this statement. Their greatest works are really the best stories ever told and illustrated. Plots may be simple but the words and how the stories unfold can always be dramatic, unexpected or touching.
Tue, 01 Jan 2008 08:03:00 +0000I received a gift at the countdown party- a kiss ... ... from mother Nature. This is the consequence when fun went overboard.
Sun, 30 Dec 2007 14:50:00 +0000Looking back at my wish list for 2007, seems like I got quite a lot of them. Man, it means I'm spending lots of money too! But I think I've done great in controlling myself from buying models which are just decorative and I hardly have enough space for them.

Sun, 09 Dec 2007 06:49:00 +0000I have the longest dream about you last night. I only recall some scenes now but I know it has been a pretty fun dream.
Sun, 09 Dec 2007 06:46:00 +0000Watched Les miserables last month. It's a good show with powerful story line. But I think I like Phantom of the Opera more.

Rush Limbaugh and his chauffeur were out driving in the country and accidentally hit and killed a pig that had wandered out on a country road.
Limbaugh told the chauffeur to drive up to the farm and apologize to the farmer.
They drove up to the farm, the chauffeur got out and knocked on the front door and was let in. He was in there for what seemed hours. When he came out, Limbaugh was confused about why his employee had been there so long.
"Well, first the farmer shook my hand, then he offered me a beer, then his wife brought me some cookies, and his daughter showered me with kisses," explained the driver.
"What did you tell the farmer?" Limbaugh asked.
The chauffeur replied, "I told him that I was Rush Limbaugh's driver and I'd just killed the pig."

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a nearby mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that moved apart and back together again by themselves.Events that happened before another may not be causal. There's still things unknown to us and unexplored. Do not assume too much.
The lad asked, "What is this, father?"
The father, having never seen an elevator, responded, "I have no idea what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheelchair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched as small circles lit up above the walls.
The walls opened up again and a beautiful twenty-four-year-old woman stepped out.
The father looked at his son anxiously and said, "Go get your mother."

A woman goes to a psychiatrist and says, ''Doctor, you've got to do something about my husband. He thinks he's a refrigerator!''
''I wouldn't worry too much about it,'' the doctor replies. "Lots of people have harmless delusions. It will pass.''
''But you don't understand,'' the woman insists. ''He sleeps with his mouth open, and the little light keeps me awake.''
Thu, 13 Sep 2007 15:18:00 +0000It has been like this since slightly more than 10 years ago. I always wished I could say the words right to you. But now, even if I tell myself I can recognise you from your back 10 metres away, your voice from 3 metres away, I can't find you anywhere. Best wishes to you.

Wed, 15 Aug 2007 09:43:00 +0000Children were called upon in a classroom to make sentences with words chosen by the teacher. The teacher smiled when Jack raised his hand to participate. She gave him the words 'defeat,' 'deduct,' 'defense,' and 'detail.' Jack stood seriously for a while with all eyes focused on him awaiting his reply:
Sun, 12 Aug 2007 14:24:00 +0000She was from British Got Talent, and I think she is really an adorable six years old. Go catch the rest of her videos. Her attitude and singing is really touching. Like a little princess. She looks cute when she stick out her tongue through the gaps of her missing front teeth.
