Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot
These are the starting lines of V for Vendetta. A nursery rhyme. Written in 1606 to warn people not to commit treason and to remind the English of the fate of a traitor, Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up the parliament in nov 5, 1605. V for Vendetta is a really good movie, try to catch it if you can. It gives a whole new perception to fighting for what you believe in. To put it in a good light, V is a hero, a deliver, standing up for the people of england and delivering them from the hands of a autocratic government. To put it in other words of course, V is just another terrorist. He too, killed innocent people to accomplish his goals of revenge. In a way, his quest to "free" the people of England, was accompanied by another agenda of personal revenge against the government and against the people who had tortured him in the past. He manupilated the public, the woman he loved, made use of her ID and even tortured her to get her to see his point of view. The question is then, where do you draw the line between fighting for good or for evil? Where do you draw the line at how many people expendable in order to achieve what you set out to do? Who is right and who is wrong?
This is probably the reason why we will never see peace in this world. There's one scene in the movie where all these guys are shooting V and V just would not die, so this politician present at the scene asked him why he would not die. V said, "there's something more than just flesh and muscles under this mask, it's ideas and ideas do not die." or something to that extent. Ideas won't die. People will continue to hurt others for a "worthy cause". The world is not on its way to become a better place.

another incentive to watch the show is because natalie portman is such a good actress. she's pretty, smart and she even looks good bald. Mel always says the best way to know if someone is really pretty is to shave bald. She passes the test!

One reason why you probably not want to watch the show: French toast.
The french toast that V and Gordon makes for Evey looks too yummy. And... It appears twice in the show. Starts some major craving after watching the show. You've been warned.

Mel just told me that the nursery rhyme ring around the rosies is about the black death. Then there's the remember remember nursery rhyme talking about treason, and humpty dumpty is about a heavy canon,Georgie porgie is about adultery. so Im thinking, we let our children learn about these things?! I grew up learning nursery rhymes thinking that there were just nonsensical harmless rattling. someone explain to me why they are taught to children? just because it has catchy tunes and is short maybe. but still? we are told not to let our children watch too much tv because there is too much sex, violence and all these are not good for development. hmmm. strange world we live in.

The Faders

I dont wanna live heart ache
Dont bring me down again
Stop doing my head in
When will it end when will it end?

Get ready its show time
Got nothing to lose but you
Now Ive made up my mind
You know what to do you know what to do

Why dont you just jump?
Now youre out on your own
Only one way for you to go
So jump
Why dont you just jump?
Now youre out of time
And you know what you can do

Ooooo we didnt think it possible
I can never live with out your love
But you lost it all ha

You say you need me
Whatever whatever Ive heard it all before
Cant live without me
Whatever whatever Ive heard it all before
And you say you love me
Whatever whatever Ive heard it all before

Whatever whatever Ive heard it all before

Now youre out on your own
Only one way for you to go
So jump
Why dont you just jump?
Now youre out of time
And you know what you can do
Why you can jump

The Love Of God
The Love of God is greater far
Then tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest hell
The guilty pair, bowed down with care
God gave His Son to win
His erring child, He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin
The love of God, how rich and pure
How measureless and strong
It shall forevermore endure
The saints and angels song

Could we with ink the oceans fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky

Just think about the words of this hymn. Especially the 2nd verse... it just leaves me feeling so thankful and awed each time.

Today is D's 19th birthday! and we surprised him with a birthday dinner. hope he had fun! Think the funniest part was when i messaged me to ask S,G and I to hide and then D, J and i were just outside NYDC. We panicked and used the menus to cover our faces and we even creased the birthday card in our haste. sigh... see la i.... next time message faster ok? hahah.

Came back, watched terrorist week on National Geo with my daddy. hmmm... did you know that the toxin produced by some bacteria that is used in botox injections can be used as a biological weapon? A syringe of concentrated toxin is enough to kill the whole world. and ppl are still injecting it into their faces? the price we pay for vanity. There was this case in the US, Palm beach, where this plastic surgeon had gotten hold of a bottle of concentrated toxin and he clearly ignored the label on the bottle that said that the contents were for research purposes only. He organised a botox party and injected himself and the ppl who came for the party with this toxin. In the end, all of them went to hospital, not sure whether they survived.Don;t think so. I mean, come on?! read the label! you're a doctor, IQ prob 1289371829?!?! gr. stupidity and vanity killed the cat.

Jan is so afraid that she will get small pox and die ugly with pustles leaking of pus. hahah.. so cute. She can't sleep now. Insisted that mama goes and sleep with her. The show reminded me of our gp lessons. haha science and technology. but something more crucial is this, life is so vulnerable, Man thinks that we're powerful, the dominant species, but in reality, we're not. It's in things like this, that we realise that we do not have full control over everything. In fact, the more we try to understand and control nature, the more we lose control of it. guess this is God's way of telling us that we're not God. ok. better stop before this starts sounding like a gp essay.

The person you need is nanny mcphee. There's something you need to understand about the way I work: When you need me, but do not want me, I will stay. When you want me, but do not need me, that is when I have to go.

This is my new favourite song. hahah. kind of swoony. I like. :) I can just imagine using it for stepping down next year... gosh. everybody will just start tearing.

How did I fall in love with you
Backstreet boys

Remember when,
we never needed each other
The best of friends like
Sister and Brother
We understood, we'd never be,

Those days are gone,
and I want you so much
The night is long and I need your touch
Don't know what to say
I never meant to feel this way
Don't want to beAlone tonight

chorus:What can I do, to make you mine
Falling so hard so fast this time
What did I say, what did you do?
How did I fall in love with you?

I hear your voice
And I start to tremble
Brings back the child that, I resemble
I cannot pretend, that we can still be friends
Don't want to be,Alone tonight


Bridge:Oh I want to say this right
And it has to be tonight
Just need you to know, oh yeah
I don't want to live this life
I don't want to say goodbye
With you I wanna spendThe rest of my life

chorus:What can I do, to make you mine
Falling so hard so fast this time
What did I say, what did you do?
How did I fall in love with you?
What can I do, to make you mine
Falling so hard so fast this time
Everything's changed, we never knew
How did I fall, in love, with you?

I have found my gu-gu (auntie) hahaha... its Ren! Cause before physics spa we were having a sword fight... I mean ruler fight. Then somehow the topic became condor heroes and because my surname is guo, I became guo-er and Ren is my gu-gu. so now Ren likes to chase me around class, calling guo-er guo-er.... so freaky.

to py: thanks for listening to me even when you had to take time off ur work. I know now is a very stressful time for you... so jia you ok? jia you!I'll be keeping you in prayer. You always tell me that I can do it and not to give up, so you must persevere on too!

its really nice to see van in school. She came back to school for a while for spa on friday. thankfully her chicken pox is quite mild. Gen(hammie) cut her hair, think she looks nice with her short hair.

12:24 PM;

Helped my sister braid her hair today. When I was done, I stood there looking at her, thinking, " she's going to be so pretty in a few years time". Sigh... everybody's growing up so fast. Then I think about my parents, there will come a time when the three of us are overseas, working or studying. Suddenly this huge house will be so empty. An empty nest. Not sure whether they will be used to it. Especially my mum. I guess now I know why jie wants to finish her studies so quickly and come back.
