Zhang Jing Na
One of the earliest photographers and artists that I have ever come to paid attention to. It was not long ago honestly, just merely a year plus or two ago that I have so happened to come across her work and ever since, have continued to study them in hopes that one day, perhaps I myself as an amateur photographer right now, might one day be able to create works that are somewhat close and almost as captivating as the works of hers.
What makes works of hers to be so appealing in my opinion is not merely the technical skills which this particular artist undoubtedly has. It is apparent that the lighting and composition is wonderful and utterly beautiful in her works but the key that makes them all beyond just a pretty picture and what I have been saying as 'captivating' is her remarkable ability to capture works that speak, works that are alive. So many of her photographs are able to express deep emotions through them and you feel as if the characters in them had some intense background story or strong emotions swirling in them the moment the shot was taken making these very works of hers powerfully engaging to the viewers.
The feeling brought with every shot expresses certain emotions in them and it is this emotion which makes works of hers full of impact and causes the audience to pause and ponder about the work while absorbing the whole beauty of it in. And this isn't just to be credited to the models whom I do think have excellent ability in expression but a huge part was played by Jing Na as it can be seen by how the pictures are composed, the angles, the depth of field, the lighting, the way the colors are played glues perfectly along with the emotions expressed by the character to balance everything into a perfect work. And after taking a shot at trying to be a photography visual artist myself, it has only heighten my appreciation for Jing Na's works.

the point of this post: to talk about food -- delicious, salivating food!!!!
i keep thinking about all the delicious food out of the sudden (lol yes, it's not a habitual thing, don't judge me!!!) from sweet & spicy tom yams, banana leaf rice, fragrant viet restaurant's lemongrass chicken with soupy koay teow, ninja joe's big boss with that beautifully honey glazed patty (which i have not tried but my bro just described it to me the other day!!!), bibimbaps with all that really wonderful side dishes T__T, deep friend seafood tofu with some wonderful chilli sauce, deep fried dumplings, crispy popiah, caesar salad (i miss the one i made LOLS, i like the fact that i used so much less oil than any other salad dressing recipe including original caesar salad dressings but the only thing i missed out was croutons!!), that deep fried yau char koay thing in round shape with the sticky rice in the center and then sprinkling some sesame seed on it would be excellent, caramelized apples topped with cinnamon on a freshly baked puff pastry, ahhhh and so many other foods in the world *spins around in circles*.
okay i'll be back soon because i have just recently watch 30+ trailers of upcoming movies and i want to talk about shows that i am anticipating!!!! :D goodbye!

holidays are sooo pleasing *relaxed smile* haha i have managed to watch so many episodes of chuck, the big bang theory, yi hoi hou cheng and even catch up on the social network, bruce lee & tangled which i have to say have been wonderful movies, all of em.
the social network was rather entertaining throughout and it kept my attention. i wasn't all that excited or anything but i did feel interested as the movie proceeds in talking about how zuckerberg started the whole thing from just being angry at a girl, then to comparing females, then eventually facebook! however i thought mark zuckerberg's character was slightly mean. i did quite enjoy justin timberlake's appearance in the movie though. it's rather mainstream the whole movie and contains some teen crazy fun elements to it. a bit of a drama. but if it is to be considered a documentary sort of thing, it is very interesting!
similar to that is the bruce lee movie which, well, is a documentary-like thing speaking about bruce lee's family life and his life prior to his debut. i was surprised by how good it was because honestly i wasn't exactly expecting too much from it but i was blown away by the art direction and how they filmed it. i loved the settings, the design of the look of the backgrounds, amazingly done. angles, composition and all regarding how they shot it was rather good as well!! although i understand that it's a based on real life story situation, i kinda felt that the story was not superbly interesting for a movie.
FINALLY today i watched tangled *smiles like a really happy little girl*. haha i have been hearing raving good reviews about it and i was sooooo waiting to have my chance in watching it. and what's the final say? it's so disney!! but in a good way. it's so disney like it makes me melt all over the place dood. but but but it's not just like any other fairytale story movie ever made by disney! it doesn't have that overly dreamy feel but instead this had a surprisingly down to earth touch to it in my opinion. and i'm getting that from how the characters behave and was designed to be. she was a princess but not just a pretty pretty perfect perfect dainty and gentle princess. and he wasn't even a friggin prince, he was a thief and he was conceited LOL. and dood it was funnay. they were totally contemporary in terms of behavior. ah i don't want to say too much about it just in case anyone who wants to watch it is reading this. what i can say is this movie made me feel like a little girl again HAHA. and the cgi was great, the hair looks great, and at certain points where the character was not in the shot, the graphics looked so realistic! and the characters were very well done too, just that they were purposely drawn with a touch of cartoon to them so yeah, less realistic in that sense only. the hair was wonderful LOL. and it was brilliantly witty!! ahhh i don't know what else to say LOL BUT I LOVED IT and i watched it 12 hours ago and i'm still excited about it!!! i loved zachary levi and i loved him so much in this role!!! so dreamy!!! HAHA ahhhh i wanna watch it again okay bye! >__<

BUT i have recently watched one tvb drama, which i felt totally glad to watch. it has been some time since a drama series had such interesting storyline (although yes, i do feel that certain parts were kinda dull and then certain parts overly rushed :/) however that's just my opinion, maybe other people still thinks of it as crappy or whatever. well the show i'm talking about is some show called "yi hoi hou cheng a.k.a. no regrets". ah i know, tvb dramas are rather lame to even talk about but honestly i felt that this is rather well-written so let's give it some credit. i'm starting to wonder if it was derived from any novels.
and reasons that i love it: really shocked about how non-conventional a romance in this drama is, how non-conventional of characters to interact although they are in love, how that the protagonist in this show is strong and courageous, and that it isn't those sissy dramas just about their definition of romance, it is about a time that is truly testing, about overcoming who you are for the greater good, about being courageous even when everything you have that means anything at all to you is on the line, about knowing what you're doing even if the world doesn't understand and being able to find the strength to do what you need to do even when the people you love does not support you in that. so that's why it's awesome and so good to watch LOL.
i honestly have deep appreciation especially for the romance aspect of this movie about the two protagonists. because most shows would just have them come to be in love very suddenly out of finding each other to be cute in something they do then get totally drenched in emotions and then pour them out on each other heavily, ahh i don't know, lmao. but this story is so different. how they find appreciation in each other through their courage, through their dignity. but despite that, did not let themselves be drenched in emotions. the love they had, is beyond just romance because i think it has truth in it. they loved enough to be courageous and to let go when they had to, to separate when they had to, even when they knew there is the chance of never finding each other again. and they did it so many times, out of belief that this is for their good (yes they were times when it was their life on stake, and there wasn't any other way but there were also times that it wasn't, yet they still bravely let go). and when one risked their own life for the sake of the greater good, i love how the other protagonist would churn out the courage to risk their own life as well, to follow and do the same.
spoilers: and in the end, even though they had never really expressed their feelings right out, when they really did lose each other towards the end, they patiently, in hope waited, in faith. they searched for decades, and decades but never lost hope, never gave up. and so very sweet is the ending when they meet again at old age. amazed by the wonderful makeup job btw, lol they look splendidly old.
ah okay i think i'll roughly stop there. there's so much more but let's just save it for you to maybe go watch it for yourself LOL. i only wished the filming was done better!!

lol i know, i'm like always crying when i watch shows = = but this feels really heartbreaking (in my opinion at least :S). it rates better than aftershock and watching the trailer, i am really looking forward to watch it.
its about a dying father, really wanting to help his autistic son to be able to live and take care of himself after he's gone. delights in the brilliantly brought in touches of innocence, the humbling mood, the hope in spite of desperation, the strength, the authenticity of love, the patience, the very raw emotions involved, the very existing issue of the society.
i think they're halfway taking the movie down from cinemas (always too late!!!!) and i only found like a few places showing it :/ hopefully i am able to catch this soon, with english subs. and i'm so going to have a box of kleenex with me this time!!!
and i feel that all these really well filmed chinese movies are being underrated. the category which doesn't belong in romance, comedy, adventure and horror needs more appreciation! they can be very interesting too!

just watching how a dad bought his adorable son some cute and colorful gummy candy with sugar sprinkles.
just watching how thoughtful a dad can be, offering to his son, then holding it back because he remembered how the pack was a struggle for his kid to open, to open it for him.
just watching how a granddad was excited along with the rest of the family to buy some new clothes for the granddaughter, even when she already chose some and they were on their way to be paid at the counter.
just watching, and be thankful.
at the end of the day, simplicity wins all. maybe what i'm saying is cliche and is really a bunch of nothingness. but i just feel so thankful for today :D

lately, i paid a bit more attention on the people around me (yeah i'm rather ignorant at times :/) and i have discovered my own motivation to be a better person. we can only give the best to the people around us when we become who we're really made to be. that's what i keep hearing lately. and you know, we should stop looking in to dwell on only how we feel or what type of situation we're in. because we end missing out on how the people around us are doing.

haha and i just spent 50 bucks on 398 pages of love <3 and i've been trying to really read lately. it's time to improve in our knowledge and grow people! my best investment this semester and buying more books can surely prevent me from lol simply using my money on crap.

people's been really emo lately. lots of people. unrelated people. people everywhere. and i'm one of the statistics sometimes but i have been taught lately that i really should be giving thanks for every single thing i have before i can actually move on to having greater things :D (i really like what is said. the same person who said this actually also said, "don't say you don't know, you don't know means you're lazy and you didn't go to find out," hahahaha). well we should all stay positive from now on! even if you're having a headache.
and i felt so sweet tonight :D my brother's girlfriend actually waited with my family for me to finish class and then came home with us to watch tv. and she told us how my brother's cooking attracted some people over there ahaha >__< i can't believe it but i felt totally heart-warmed. and suddenly i feel like cooking some time. i always have a wonderful time spending a gazillion hours in the kitchen (and sometimes friends or my brother will be there cooking with) and at the end of the day everybody come's together to eat the sometimes lousy sometimes whoa food that we cook and have a great time of warmth :D
okay i think i better go sleep, my cheeks are heating up and i feel like my head is really hot. i think i might be coming down with something if i don't take care of myself :/ goodnight, stay healthy, laugh more :D
Monday, September 27, 2010
that's the trailer. lol i can't embed it somehow so just copy the hyperlink lmao. seth rogen is such an innocent, caring, loving, dorky friend to adam sandler in that movie and i totally want to hug seth rogen after watching that movie. plus i heard that seth rogen is doing a movie with jay chou? is that true?!!! (i just googled it, it's called the green hornet O__O and jay chou seems funny like jet li is funny in the expandables lmao)
anyways there's suddenly this wave of elmo going on. a few days back youtube was actually having an elmo day where they had official youtube interview with elmo and featured elmo videos on their homepage as well as having the elmo icon by the side of the youtube logo. just two days back i was watching E! and they were talking about the controversial incident regarding the video of elmo with katy perry and katy perry being dressed in low cut clothes? something like that, go google it lmao. so yeah there's been a real hype about elmo hasn't it and it makes me want to watch sesame street. okay bye, too much nonsense and i better do my assignment T__T

one desired another to get out of the dream.
now one is wondering if oneself can get out of the dream as well.
well, it's probably for the best even if one finds it hard to see that now.

hahahaha :D lmao look at my (angry/sad?) kiddy picture LOLOLOL and my bro trying to do extreme stunt -- with my other brother's leg on his neck (he was attempting to do the 'i can put my own leg over my neck stunt act'). and finally our polaroid hehehe.
i'm going to miss my brother :/ us acting weird, us going to gym, us trying to bejeweled blitz each other to death lmao, us playing maple story side by side in person as in game, us playing dota, us forcing each other to cook maggi mee and wasting more time and energy on that than actually going to cook the friggin mee, us measuring our fats, and even with his girlfriend spamming angry stuff on his facebook for beating our bejeweled blitz scores, us three watching some chinese show which i can barely understand, us trying to cook friggin tasty pasta recipe and then eating it and insisting we beat the restaurant's standards. us being forced to overeat by mom (when in fact, we willingly do it :p). well, we'll always have facebooks to spam if necessary :D

just watched that on fb and thought it was inspiring.

the best part i loved about this movie was the vivid and intense description of the emotions as well as how they layered everything together. the reasons for each of the characters to act a certain way due to the outcome of their past and for the decisions they've made as well as the situations faced. and before saying more about that, i must come to say,
the art direction of the overall film was really quite nice and the acting overall was pretty well done. in my opinion that is, since it made me clenched my jaw so hard forcing myself not to cry but end up sobbing hard with stuffy nose lmao. and i loved some of the camera angles as well as elements they've included in the film. like being excited over a newly bought fan, drawing on daddy's wrists images of watches. i really like how they've brought in a sense of the rural chinese culture and a sense of infancy simplicity in the beginning.
eventually the movie moves on to talk about how the earthquake had actually devastated lives, and even in this one family alone, it has caused so much impact and then later to the people surrounding them.
well not only that, i also find it incredible the way the story has explored the insecurities of people. how people silently misunderstands another and lives in pain out of their misconception. and this prolongs in the story to decades of these people's lives, assuming abandonment, hatred and unforgiveness from one another, when in reality, none of these existed. they lived in guilt, rejection and pain until finally the characters opened up to one another.
i think i might buy the dvd when they released it. seriously, an 8 bucks well spent! :D and watching movie alone is so not fun lmao! by the way, i'm not weak for crying! those guys in there as well as men with family were all crying too. just that i might have did it a bit more often lmao. but hey, i realize i can hold tears better in one eye while the other just gives in and cry all it wants ahaha.

i want to watch this movie, looks so good and read some good reviews about it. and the trailer makes me cry with that snow patrol song. usually the song makes me really emo already but combined with the trailer, serious tears are bound to come T__T and i love shows that carry a meaning to them, so yeah lol i guess this is right down my street.
another movie i am sooo wanting to watch!! it's been in the cinemas for a long time already and hopefully i'd be able to catch it before they take it down (like inception which i can't believe i missed T__T i wanna cry hard, i'm the only person on earth that missed it and it ranks 9.4/10 on imdb omg)
yes. it's a china movie in chinese and i know i don't know chinese although i'm genetically identified as chinese but read what they say about this movie!!!!
"Tangshan Earthquake, 28 July 1976.
When a mother is informed by the rescue team that, as her 7-year old twins are buried under the debris close to each other, digging one out would result in further collapse of the wreckage on the other, she is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life. As the clock ticked away, she finally ended her struggle and chose to save the boy, and though heartbroken, she had no idea her decision was overheard by the daughter. Deemed as a dead person, the little girl miraculously survived and was rescued after being buried for days. Suffering from the emotional shock of the disaster and the painful memory of her mothers choice, she refused to reveal who she was. She was adopted by a young couple and later moved to the US, but shadowed by the traumatic experience from her childhood; she forever remained emotionally closed up.
When the Sichuan earthquake takes over 80,000 lives in 2008, she volunteers to join the rescue team and returns to her homeland, China. As she witnesses the tribulations people go through when a natural disaster takes place, she finally unlocks the pain she had felt all these years and finds forgiveness. She finally reunites with the mother and twin brother she had parted from after 32 years. A human drama about finding forgiveness, Aftershock depicts not only the fatal tragedy that is brought on by natural disaster of great levels but also the strength and courage that is demonstrated when we are in face of extreme and devastating situations."
T__T i have to watch this even if it means heading to the cinemas ALONE! i am determined this time! such good yet underrated movies need recognition and support! and i think the trailer is not doing it justice enough!!! but still it managed to cause me to sob a little after reading that description of the show and watching the trailer that shows how the girl broke into tears when she was questioned about her family. AHH NEED TO WATCH NEED TO WATCH NEED TO WATCHHHHH.
oh and man, i watched 3 movies on saturday for real lol. i watched piranha and step up 3 with kelly and then watched grown ups with my family. conclusion: i had a serious headache that night lmao. but i loved step up 3 :D it was quite sweet. love the scene where they blew soda into the air and the scene of moose and camille dancing!! they had wonderful choreography and a lovely soundtrack lineup. grown ups were okay too, the jokes were quite interesting but rather lacking in an overall storyline. piranha had awesomely gross scenes that were rather funny lol. so yup that's it and here's moose & camille.

ahh, tonight was the season finale to parenthood (another drama series that i'm hooked on) and i was weak, i cried then laugh then cried while laughing lol... this is the life!
well it's probably not the most interesting, exciting thing you can watch on tv but it was absolutely heartwarming in my opinion (and i loved this show -- very much!!). the acting was wonderful in my opinion, especially from lauren & mae!! and i like how the show goes around showing everybody has all these imperfections and makes all these terrible mistakes that hurt each other a whole lot but the love they had for one another just made them realize that they're family, and they should really be there for each other and comfort each other instead of just piling guilt on each other about how wrong they've been. and it really made me cry when i watch how the story proceeds from how amber seriously has done it so wrong with her cousin and even ultimately causing her cousin's personality to change and making her aunt incredibly worried and could only come up to blame amber and her mom for everything and then having her cousin come to her rescue in the end and extends a hand of forgiveness T__T ahh... maybe that sounds lame and corny but ahhh i loved the show! season 2 is coming soon!!! :D okay bye!

there are so many wonderful people out there :)
i feel great knowing that there are hearts that are warm. hearts that long for the truth, live for the truth. hearts that care, hearts that are sincere. people who love people, have a passion for people.
i enjoyed the night with people whom i have never met, do not know their name/can't remember their names (ugh i'm so sorry T__T i feel bad for not remembering your names!!!), don't have a clue of where they came from although i know the country's name but not sure of the background at all >_< . i just feel a sense of love around these people whom i barely know. when a 69 year old woman of a different nationality and i am meeting for the first time (if i'm not mistaken) holds my hand, i feel wonderful :))

so that roughly explains my overexcitement for that show. and actually, the point of this post is i love zachary levi (sonia reminded me how i loved him through a video she posted which is coming up after a bit more on zachary levi LOL). remember when he was on less than perfect (without the curls!!!)? ahaha i can't believe i watched him since then but of course i never really liked him quite as much until the release of Chuck (he was rather a mean character on less than perfect lol). and if you haven't watched Chuck before, you really should!!
ahaha okay lah some might think it's cliche, silly and not very interesting as the storyline is repetitous in certain aspects (like the relationship between chuck and sarah, how he always continually doubts her and so on lol) and plus it seems to be one of those family-orientated (to a certain level) shows whereby they indirectly has a lesson behind it to learn AND it's like beauty and the geek happening all over again. BUT other than the first mentioned reason, i love it for all the other reasons :) the show is just oh so adorable.

LOL I find this ball of rice with chopstick holes in it just very very funny. Thought it looked like a snowman so I gave it a smile :) and maybe I should give it a few buttons so that it looks like a chicken-rice-ball-man LOL.
Has been talking to a few good old friends lately, and am reminded of the fact that we're not alone. In good things and in not so good things alike, people share in the things they face even in different places and at different moments in time. We just all need some love, some care, some inspiration at times like these to move forward in the best way.
And we went Malacca yesterday! Took some pics (without my 500d lol) but Facebook failed my uploads twice so I decided to upload another day but here are some of the pics!
LOL okay sorry my line's slow so this is it for now. maybe i'll upload again at 3 in the morning lmao since everyone says it's faster then ahaha bye!
OHHH and THANK YOU TO DEE & LEO LEO!! :)) WE HAD FUN AND I FEEL LIKE WE'RE THEIR CHILDREN AHAHAH
and we shall not constantly keep our minds on the horrible things in life or imagine the worst situations. the pains will pass, wounds will heal. let every wrong mistake and painful situation serve to help us grow to become a better person knowing more about what's around us now. forgive those who hurt us and forgive ourselves to have allowed such situations to happen. one day, every situation that stings our heart right now just at the thought of it will slowly fade to grey and the many days to come are filled with much more hope :) words are easily said but every day we have to remind ourselves these simple truths and stay strong to be able to live a wonderful life in the very little moments we are given to be here.

quotes by miss lee from the book "tuesdays with morrie" by mitch albom.
"..so many people walk around with a meaningless life. they seem half asleep even when they are busy doing things that they think are important. this is because they are chasing the wrong thing. the way you devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to the comunity around you and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning." (pg43)
"the most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and let it come in." (pg52)
"You have to find what's good and true and beautiful in your life as it is now. Looking back makes you competitive. And, age is not a competitive issue." (p.120)
"Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others." (p.164) "We...need to forgive ourselves...For all the things we didn't do. All the things we should have done. You can't get stuck on the regrets of what should have happened." (p.166)
"There is no formula to relationships. They have to be negotiated in loving ways, with room for both parties, what they want and what they need, what they can do and what their life is like." (p.177,178) "...there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don't respect the other person, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don't know how to compromise, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don't have a common set of values in life, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike." (p.149)
"do the kind of things that comes from the heart. when you do, you wont (be?) dissatisfied, you wont be envious, you wont be longing for somebody else's things. on the contrary, you'll be overwhelmed with what comes back."

Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it's time to go home
May you always have plenty
The glass never empty
Know in your belly
You're never alone
May your tears come from laughing
You find friends worth having
With every year passes
They mean more than gold
May you win but stay humble
Smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble
You're never alone
Never alone, Never alone
I'll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn't goodbye
My love will follow you, stay with you
Baby you're never alone
Well I have to be honest
As much as I wanted
I'm not gonna promise that cold winds won't blow
So when hard times have found you
And your fears surround you
Wrap my love around you
You're never alone" -- Lady Antebellum (Never Alone)
"I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile, :))
But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.
This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big" -- Rascal Flatts (My Wish)
rather corny but better than anything i can possibly come up with to say lol

and tell me it's not just advertising gimmicks all these promotion of toa as being "leading" and "top" because it is very brave of them to claim so if it's a claim without basis. i don't see other art colleges in rather nearby surroundings claiming quite the same (yes, i've tried researching and the only prominent one who claims so is toa, but of course i only did the surrounding regions' ones lol, nothing too far away :p).
well well, yes, i know everything's going to happen for good and when things are supposed to happen they will, i just hope that it all results for good and i'm not only meaning emotionally good. so no need gelisah lah lmao. i shall sleep nao.
ps. since i can't do anything i should try and pray that to be guided to wherever that's best *lempang self with a slipper so that can k.o. now*

i thought i was rather like afraid of dogs but apparently i'm not lol. and i find them to be sincere & wonderful. well, but i'm not exactly the kind who has pets (err... i had them... and yeah, now they're gone @_@ and no i didn't throw them out or anything...). however if you're thinking about getting cats or dogs for yourself, why not consider SPCA! haha this sounds so advertisement-ish. but lots of their dogs seem perfectly good to me unlike the possible mindsets of them being like sick or what i don't know. some of them are even really friendly (some are slightly more shy, but they're cute all the same!). they have them in all ages, puppies, err... slightly older puppies, and adult dogs (same thing goes for the kitties!)
:)) playing with them was pretty happy. but eventhough you think pets might be very very cute, you must always be aware that they are a "lifetime commitment"! don't just throw them away omg please, they have feelings too okay and feeling abandoned is just urghh. and you must take on the responsibility of caring for them all the time, not only feeding and bathing lah, but you need to take care of their social and emotional aspects as well!
and we got a little special relationship with cindy, the puppy up there^ :) (NO NOT CINDY LEE LOL -- ahaha okay lah cindy lee too *raises brow @ miss lee*) haha. such an adorable little puppy. she's rather shy too, quiet, but ADORABLE lmao. ahaha and the puppy below was like barking quite a lot -- CUTE ALSO THOUGH LOL but kinda scared of me i think. anyway it's really sad to see what happens to the dogs that gets abandoned. they have this area where all the newly arrived dogs stay, and they acted pretty differently from the rest. they seemed scared and in a way unconfident about things huhuhu.
AND haha this dog chewed lightly on my fingers (no not the i'm gonna bite your fingers off chew, it was like the dog was trying to get to know me :) and no i'm not hurt in any way) and i went like aww LOL (yes, i am so noob). anyways it was a wonderful day and funny thing was, lol tonight, one german shepard and one golden retriver appeared at my front door (i am for real!) and i was like O_O LOL what a coincidence... haha i think they ter-ran out when the thunders were going off. ahaha THEY ARE HUGE. talk about huge, we met this super big dog (shown below) at spca LOL. he was bigger!!
and and and if you really considering pets, consider them okay??!! not all of them are like those purebred or whatnot but they're actually very cute also! and although yes, it's true, they might take time to be all passionate about you or what, but man i'm sure if one day, they become that way, just because of your love, they become all happy, confident, beautiful dogs (/cats) again, it will feel so rewarding LOL. well that's to those who are absolutely sure about having a pet!

And today, you just wished to have an understanding, that you’re not perfect. To have an understanding that you really weren’t aware and still can’t be too sure of what you’re supposed to be aware of. To have an understanding, that from the beginning, you didn’t expected anything like this to be ever possible of happening. To have an understanding, you didn’t mean to come as a pain and will walk away to cease this. To have an understanding, that if this is still the wrong move, that you’re still just trying and figuring things out, one at a time.
And you know, that you can’t demand acceptance, you can’t control reactions, and you can’t fulfill everybody’s perfect situation.
But you just want someone to hear you out. That you’re all the same as anyone else. You’ve done wrong, but you need grace and someone who believes in the best in you all the same. And you know, even this you can’t demand but just be evermore appreciative because of this and because of this, you are reminded of how to forgive.

yesterday i watched this movie until 3a.m. and although no one ever says that it is about what i think it is, but i think it is about forgiveness. "the reader". and i love the acting, the details, the somewhat unusual storyline, and the vividness in expressing -- mostly, the forgiveness that i still think it is about lol. i was sad about what happened to hanna though :/
and just to talk about my cousin who is so absolutely adorable :) she stared at me almost the entire time while i was doing my assignment hahaha kids are just so sweet. they came and hugged me some more lalala.

i just want to remind you, miss thoo, of many things i think that you might have already forgotten.
ask yourself, what was your ultimate aim. what was it that you always hoped to do and bring? who do you know (and i know you know, don't be deceived and say that you don't) that you are?
are you about to let yourself break and lose it and just let yourself continue in being this way, let yourself go to waste? are you about to let lies that you don't even know if are facts to kill you slowly? are you going to let the world's view of you form you?
you have done wrongs, you had, you still did. but remember everyone does and despite the perfectionist personality of yours that always seeks the ideal, remember that everything, everyone at some point falls short. forgive the situations, forgive the people, and forgive yourself even if all around you can't see quite the same. be strong, move on.
remember that not everything can go your way, but remember that it is as it is said, that all things will work out for good. even when it goes beyond your mental ability to fathom.
remember that it's never too late to be different, to change and to pick yourself up from where you have fell.
remember that, you can't alter the perception of others of yourself, but at the end of the day, you have to determine who you are.
remember that loving yourself, will ultimately give you the ability to truly love others -- beyond just words and emotions.
remember that even when you think you're all alone, hated by the whole world, rejected to the ultimate core, and every part of you is sick and wrong, these are just lies -- hindering. we are wonderfully made, never left alone nor forsaken, loved with an unconditional love, and forgiven of everything.
remember even when you're hurt, do not inflict hurt, and do not give up on love. remember not to form the same perceptions formed on you, that has caused you pressure and pain, but with utmost strength, stop your mind of it and keep it in love. think of whatever that is true, pure, lovely, noble, excellent and praiseworthy.
remember that you can always still smile like you did and emanate that from the bottom of your heart. remember that, truly, even when others view of it as hypocritical -- whatever you might do, as long as you know the truth of it, sometimes, all that's out there just doesn't matter.
