having on and off splitting headaches where i'm starting to think about taking brufen. ugh must stop being reliant on taking brufen every time i'm having some sort of physical pain :/

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

just watched Funny People last night and before i watched it i actually had the thought "ah, just another one of those comedy flicks of adam sandler... i'd like to see him doing a slightly more serious movie :/" not knowing that was exactly what i was watching O__O lmao.

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

sometimes past failures instill doubts.

have faith and believe.

just watched that on fb and thought it was inspiring.

i managed to catch the final day screening of aftershock. i had doubts whether it really was as good as i was expecting it to be but i can definitely say, it did not disappoint.

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.

i have not composed a blog post in a long time hence the following post might turn out boring and full of grammatical errors.

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!
