A Story of a Blind Boy and a Stranger

source: google+

A blind boy sat on the steps of
a building with a hat by his
feet. He held up a sign which
said: "I am blind, please help."
There were onlya few coins in
the hat. A man was walking by. He
took a few coins from his
pocket and dropped them into
the hat. He then took the sign,
turned it around, and wrote
some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who
walked by would see the new
words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A
lot more people were giving
money to the blind boy. That
afternoon the man who had
changed the sign came to see
how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and
asked, "Were you the one who
changed my sign this morning?
What did you write?" The man said, "I only wrote the
truth. I said what you said but
in a different way." What he had written was:
"Today is a beautiful day and I
cannot see it." Do you think the first sign and
the second sign were saying
the same thing? Of course both signs told
people the boy was blind. But
the first sign simply said the
boy was blind. The second
sign told people they were so
lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that
the second sign was more

Deathbell 1 & 2


The film is set in a high school, where an elite group of twenty students—including rebellious heroine Kang I-na, her timid best friend Yoon Myong-hyo, and her suitor Kang Hyeon—are taking a special class for their college entrance exam. After Kang I-na is nearly strangled and another student throttled in the restroom, the classroom TV screen switches to an image of top-ranking student Hye-yeong trapped inside a fish tank that is slowly filling with water. A disembodied voice announces that her life depends on the exam questions he will set for them, and that a student will die for every question the class gets wrong. Trapped with the students are head teacher Hwang Chan-wook and English teacher Choi So-yeong. I-na realizes that the students are being killed in order of their rank in the class, and she is ranked fifth. Someone is slowly killing the students one by one, but who are they? And what do they want?

For one, i really did not expect the turn out of the events, i am so not good at guessing when it's not really that obvious. What i'm so upset about this movie was that i can't accept the fact that "he" died. . man! i was rooting for him! how sad is that. :(
So, this was the movie that was shown in Boys Over Flower, remember that one where Monkey Girl and Jun Pyo watched in his room? the scene where Jan Di fell asleep on the cabinet? ahuh, bingo! that one! i didn't know kim bum was cast in here he looked good here. .  :D

so what i can say about this movie is it's  not that bad really, though at some point throughout the show it kinda reminds me of final destination . . well netizens were saying it's pretty much like Saw but then again, i haven't watched that and i would never watch english brutal films again. . ever! LOL!


This film is about a group of high school students and teachers who get locked in the school after the swimming instructor is murdered. In South Korea, the high school student and swimmer Jeong Tae-yeon (Yoon Seung Ah) is found dead in the pool, which is found as a suicide. Two years later, teacher Park Eun-su (Hwang Jung Eum) joins the high school where Tae-yeon's stepsister Lee Se-Hee (Park Ji-yeon) is haunted by nightmarish visions and is bullied by the student Eom Ji-yun (Choi Ah-jin). Eun-su finds it difficult to get respect in the classroom and is backed up by an older teacher, Cha (Kim Su-ro). Se-Hee and her classmates are selected for an elite "study camp" held at the school during the summer break where 30 students study for their university entrance exams. The school's swimming trainer is murdered in the showers, and the words "When an innocent mother is killed, what son would not avenge her death?" found scrawled on a blackboard. A voice warns the students that they'll all be killed unless they can answer who is the murderer and why. The students and teachers find they're locked in the school when more deaths begin to happen.

okay, throughout the show i have been saying it's bloody! more bloody than the first one, that i almost did not finish it. or i wouldn't have posted this here. :((

ah, trivia again . . i thought the guy was familiar. . so i figured out that he was in fact Kim Tak Goo :D

to watch or not to watch?

watch it!!! Ciao! :D

"Life is not a book, Alex. It can be over in a second." - Kate


In 2006, Dr. Kate Forster is leaving a lake house that she has been
renting in suburban Wisconsin to
move to Chicago . Kate leaves a note in the mailbox for the next
tenant to forward her letters should
some slip through the system, further adding that the paint-embedded
pawprints on the walkway
leading into the house were already there when she arrived.
Two years earlier, in 2004, Alex Wyler, an architect , arrives at the
lake house and finds Kate's letter in
the mailbox. The house is neglected, with no sign of pawprints
anywhere. As Alex restores the house,
a dog runs through his paint and leaves fresh pawprints right where
Kate said they would be. Both Alexp
and Kate continue passing messages to each other via the mailbox, and
each watch its flag go up and
down as the message leaves and the reply arrives, which takes place as
they wait at the mailbox. They
cautiously look around each time the flag changes, hoping to somehow
spot the other, but in vain they
do not, as they are alone at the mailbox.
Baffled, Alex writes back, asking how Kate knew about the pawprints
since the house was unoccupied
before he arrived. An equally perplexed Kate writes back, and she and
Alex discover that they are living
exactly two years apart. Their correspondence takes them through
several events, including Alex
finding a book, Persuasion , at a train station where Kate said she
had lost l, and Alex taking Kate on
a walking tour of his favorite places in Chicago via an annotated map
that he leaves in the mailbox.
Alex and Kate eventually meet at a party, but he doesn't mention their
letter relationship to her as for
her, it hasn't happened yet.
As Alex and Kate continue to write each other, they decide to try to
meet again. Alex makes a
reservation at Il Mare (Italian for "The Sea"), a restaurant whose
name is a homage to the original
Korean motion picture, for around March 2007 — two years in Alex's
future, but only a day away for
Kate. Kate goes to the restaurant but Alex fails to show. Heartbroken,
Kate asks Alex not to write her
again, recounting a tragedy a year ago before, on Valentine's Day
2006, when she witnessed a traffic
accident near Daley Plaza and held a man who died in her arms. Both
Alex and Kate leave the lake
house, continuing on with their separate lives.
A year later, on Valentine's Day 2006 for Alex, Valentine's Day 2008
for Kate, Alex returns to the lake
house after something about the day triggers his memory. Meanwhile,
Kate goes to an architect to
review renovation plans for a house she wants to buy. She notices a
drawing of the lake house on the
conference room wall and learns that Alex Wyler — the same person with
whom she'd been
corresponding — had drawn it. She also learns that Alex was killed in
a traffic accident exactly two
years ago to the day and realizes why he never showed up for their
date; he was the man who died in
Daley Plaza.
Rushing to the lake house, Kate writes a letter telling Alex she loves
him, but begs him not to try to
find her if he loves her back. Wait two years, she says, and come to
the lake house instead. Meanwhile
Alex has gone to Daley Plaza to find Kate.
At the lake house, Kate sobs, clutching onto the mailbox stand, sure
she was too late, but then the
mailbox flag lowers; Alex has picked up her note. Soon, she sees a
vehicle arriving and then a figure
walking toward her. It is Alex. They walk toward each other. Kate
says, "You waited!" She and Alex
kiss, then walk toward the lake house.

26 Years Diary


26 Years Diary (Japanese: あなたを忘れない Anata wo Wasurenai; Korean: 너를 잊지 않을거야 Neoreul Ijji Nanheulgeoya; literally "I Won't Forget You") is a biopic that tells the story of Lee Su-hyon's life and death.
The film details the 26-year-old Korean student's experiences in Japan, including going to school and his developing romance with a Japanese student (played by Mākii). He died on January 21, 2001, along with a Japanese photographer, Shiro Sekine, while both were trying to save the life of a man who had fallen onto the tracks at the Shin-Ōkubo Station in Tokyo.

honestly, i got so bored with the story until it reaches the part where he got hit by a car and those japanese were twisting the story. how much do i hate that he had to die because of that drunk(?) guy? i mean he could have just let that guy get hit by the train right? he could've saved a lot of people if he hadn't die from that incident.

It tells the story of a brainy ugly duckling girl and on how she turns into someone who's worth loving. It is the first movie team up of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim and is directed by Joyce Bernal.

The Conjuring

"When the music stops, you'll see him in the mirror standing behind you." - April


Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.

I watched this few nights ago alone with the volume blasting from the speakers no it didn't scare me one bit but what makes it so creepy was that it happened in real life! another plus is that it doesn't have any gore stuffs on it. no slimy bloods and flesh eating, flesh ripping stuffs. just, plain, terror. :)

Just Like Heaven


A lonely landscape architect (Ruffalo) falls for the spirit of beautiful woman (Witherspoon) who used to live in his new apartment.

another classic feel good must watch movie. it has an interesting twists and turns and a few errors too. does ghosts have reflections/shadows? one can only guess. :)

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton

"He was wooing me. And I was
letting him woo. I wanted the woo. I deserved the woo. I needed the
wow that would surely follow the woo, but for now, the woo? It was
whoa." - Caroline

One hot fun sexy and lighthearted book with a hateful neighbor to
friends to lovers story inside. Give

Fell in love with Simon "Wallbanger" Parker eversince he banged the
wall and dropped the frame. LoL. i'm surely gonna miss Pink Nightie Girl and

The Conjuring

"When the music stops, you'll see
him in the mirror standing
behind you." April

first and foremost i've heard about this movie from a friend and it
also flooded my twitter and facebook timeline. So, i searched for the
reviews at imdb.
I watched this few nights ago. I watched it alone with the lights off
and the volumes up.
It didn't made me scream my heart out but it did made my heart skip a
beat. The sound effects was a plus. it was well portrayed and the fact
that it's based on true story made
it creepy already. And i love how it's plain Horror minus the gruesome
parts. Bottomline is,
still. Shutter's the only flick that made me scream. :)

Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie

"True love is beating you over the head to get your attention, and
you're rejecting it because you don't want to believe. You have the
fairy tale right in front of you--" - Bonnie

This book got me at chapter 2 :)
It's pretty amusing that Cal picked Min, Roger picked Bonnie and Tony
picked Liza. It's perfect already that it saddened me a bit when a
pair of the trio backed down because they just won't work out. Krispy
Kreme Doughnuts. I guess i'll indulge on that one of these days.

i loved how Min and Cal evolves throughout the book. And how much do i
owe this book for having me google what Dyslexia is?

If there's one favorite that i get to pick it would be Liza. She is
really the best of all them. She's just like that bunny slippers Cal
gave Min. Fuzzy and warm. :)

all in all this book is a fun and sexy read,
this is the kind of book that i'll stack on the bookshelf and pick it
out one of these coming days, weeks, months or maybe years that i'll
read again from front to back, who knows.

and yes, have you also wondered what happens after happily ever after?
Because I do. I really do. :)

Four Questions

There was once a great scholar.
Everybody in the kingdom
appreciated him because he
so learned. Unfortunately, in
spite of his great learning he had great pride. One day this
scholar put on a
gold necklace and went to the
palace of another king. He said,
"Whoever can defeat me in
wisdom will get this necklace. I challenge everybody!" All the
scholars in that
particular kingdom had heard
about this scholar and they
were afraid that they would
lose. So they would not accept his challenge. The king was
very sad that nobody would
accept the challenge.
Finally, the court jester said, I
accept your challenge."
The king had almost surrendered to the scholar but
thought it would be amusing to
see his jester compete. He
believed he was only a joker
and would not be able to win
the necklace. The court jester said, "I will
ask you four questions. if you
answer any of my questions
correctly, then you will lose,
but if all your answers are
incorrect, then I will accept defeat and the king will give
you anything you want."
Then the court jester asked his
first question: "Where do you
come from?"
The scholar said, I live here." This was incorrect, since he
came from another kingdom.
by giving the wrong answer
scholar passed the first test. The jester's second question
was, "How long have you been
here?" "Three years," the
scholar said,
which was also incorrect. Still
the court jester was unable to trick him.
The third time the jester
"Our king is good, kind and
generous. Do you agree?"
The scholar said, "Your king? What you are saying is totally
wrong. Your king is undivine
and very unkind." So again the
scholar passed the test. The
court jester said, "It seems
that I can't defeat you. How many questions have I asked so
The scholar said, "You have
asked me three questions; you
have one more. If I do not
answer it correctly you will lose. "
The court jester cried out,
"Look! The scholar has lost. He
has answered this question
So the scholar gave his necklace to the court jester,
and the jester immediately
gave it to the king. The
scholar's pride was totally
smashed. He said, "I will never
come to your kingdom to challenge anybody again."
All the scholars were very
impressed by the court jester's
cleverness. They knew that
they would not have been able
to defeat the great scholar. The jester said, "You see, when
great scholars are not alert,
they lose. Had he been alert, he
could have saved himself."

Vampire Crush

"Because when I'm with you, I still feel like me. And maybe that's
enough." - James Hallowell


I swear, my life was always
totally normal. Normal house, normal
family, normal school. My
looks are average, I don't
have any superpowers, no
one's showing up to tell me
I'm a princess - you get the picture. But when my junior
year started, something not
normal happened. There
were new kids at school . . .
new kids with a wardrobe
straight out of a 19th- century romance novel, and
an inexplicable desire to
stay at school until sundown. And on top of that, James
Hallowell showed up.
James, who stole my
sandwiches in fourth grade
and teased me mercilessly
through middle school. James, who now seems to
have the power to make my
heart race any time he
comes near. But something weird is going
on. Because James rarely
goes out during the day.
And he seems stronger than
your typical guy. And he
knows the new kids, all of whom seem to be harboring
some kind of deep
secret. . . .

Ahh done reading this at last. It took me to loooong to finish this
one. It wasn't that boring really it's just that my attention's been
diverting to other things lately it was a good one. Though I'm telling
you not to compare this to Twilight. Believe me. . Too different. I
love how quirky and fun read this is.

Why Why Love?

"..when there
are no hopes, then there will be no disappointments." - Tong Jia Di

Yes! Another Mike He Jun Xiang - Rainie Yang Cheng Lin series for me.
I watched this two times already. It still gave me the kilig factor as
always. But then through the years i still hate the part where Hou Da
got sick it really wasn't necessary show. To tell you the truth. But
then yeah well you want to show the people the softer side of their
dad so be it. -_-

Judy forgive me for telling you this. I got so distracted by your
hairstyles. I wanted to cry out during those heartwrenching moments
but then, . . . Never mind. Just sue your hairstylist here. :)


Tong Jia Di needs a life besides
work, paying down family debt,
and more work. So her best
friend Jiang Xiao Nan sneaks in a
"Love" coupon in Jia Di's raffle
box praying that the lucky guy who draws it will sweep Jia Di off
her feet. As it so happens, Huo
Yan, the compassionate manager
Jia Di has secret crush on, is the
lucky guy. But, tho' the prince
can exchange the coupon for Cinderella's love, it doesn't mean
he will, especially when his devilish
younger brother is determined to
exchange his "Master/Angel"

Devil Beside You

"There are people that intend to hurt you, but there are also people
who get hurt because you are hurt." – Yuan Yi

Ah! It came to an end. *sigh*

i have always been a fan of Mike He Jun Xiang. I even almost believe
that i'm inlove with him, but i know i'm not. :)

I love his characters more since i don't really know the real him.

Devil Beside You is no difference. I didn't watch it because of him or
because of Rainie Yang Chen Ling.

i watched it because it was worth watching.

it was easy to love and easy to understand.

It's truly amazing for me when i couldn't get enough of the series i'm
watching. Like. . Even after the ending i still want to continue watch
over their happenings. Isn't that great?

why don't you watch it too and let me know what you think. :)

kwentong horror: 31st floor

Source: google+

31st Floor
Mark Angeles

"Call center butterfly" ang tawag nila sa tulad ko. Hindi kasi ako
mapirmi sa isang call center. Hindi ko na usually inaabot ang
regularization, lumilipat ako agad sa iba after a few weeks on the
floor. Ewan ko. Siguro that is how I was wired.
It works for me. Kung pwede nga lang magkulong sa kwarto at mag-DVD
marathon o mag-sound trip, 'yun ang gagawin ko maghapon.
But sometimes it bothers me. Hindi ko ito nababanggit sa iba. Pero
I'm a ghost magnet yata. Most of the time, graveyard shift ako so 'pag
lumabas ako ng house mga past 6 na. Madilim na dun sa nilalakaran ko
papunta sa sakayan ng jeep na magbababa ng EDSA. Maraming beses na
kasi nangyari na may makakasalubong akong naglalakad-weird-nakatitig
sa akin na para bang nanlilisik ang mga mata. Tas 'pag pinilit kong
i-spot ang nilalakaran nila, nakalutang ang mga paa nila sa lupa.
Alam ata nila na nakikita ko sila. May mga kaluluwang gumagala na
ayaw talaga magpaabala. Nagagalit sila 'pag sinusundan sila ng tingin.
Naalala ko minsan nung bata pa ako, naglalaro ako sa bangketa tas may
dumaang karo ng patay. Dun sa mga kapamilyang nakabuntot sa karo, may
nakita akong maputlang lalaki na nakapamburol, nakatitig sa akin.
Hindi na naalis 'yun sa isip ko.
Dun sa isang call center na pinasukan ko, sabi nila may bata raw na
naglalro sa mga training rooms sa 25th floor. Madalas himahampas niya
'yung mga swivel chairs.
'Yung CR nga sa dulo wala nang gumagamit dahil madalas siya rung
magparamdam. Akala mo may laman ang isang cubicle dahil may maririnig
kang mga kaluskos, wala naman pala. Minsan nga nag-CR ako dun mag-isa.
Habang naghuhugas ako ng kamay, biglang kumindat 'yung mga ilaw. Tas
sa gilid ng mga mata ko, para bang may nakita akong payat na naka-blue
uniform sa tapat ng ihian, nakalutang ang mga paa niya mga 2 feet mula
sa sahig. Baka iyon 'yung multo ng namatay sa elevator. May isang
utility man daw kasing nagkukumpuni ng sirang elevator tas nag-short
yata 'yung mga kable. Ayun, nabagsakan siya ng elevator mismo. Patay
Isang madaling-araw, nang mag-round yung guwardiya, binuksan niya
'yung Training Room 3. May nakita raw siyang tao na nakaharap sa
computer. Akala niya agent. Pagsasabihan niya sana kasi bawal mag-stay
sa training room kahit before mag-start ang class kaso nakatalikod sa
kanya so tinawag niya. Hindi ito sumagot. Pagbukas niya ng ilaw, wala
siyang nakitang tao.
Sa Workforce naman namin, may isang area na sobrang lamig kahit
nakapatay ang aircon. Isang araw, nung kinakausap ko 'yung ka-batch ko
dun bigla na lang tumilapon 'yung Avaya, 'yung phone na ginagamit
namin sa calls. Nagtaka sila. Minsan kasi bigla na lang umikot 'yung
isang upuan ng 360 degrees. Sa takot nila, nagtakbuhan daw sila lahat.
"Baka poltergeist 'yung multo, " sabi ng ka-batch ko. Hindi ko na lang
binanggit na nakita ko 'yung reflection ng bata sa salamin ng window.
Tumakbo siya at nagtago sa ilalim ng isang computer station na parang
Parang nasasanay na ako sa dami ng mga manifestations. At least,
hindi pa ako nakakakita ng mga multo na sabog ang bungo o putol ang
kamay, 'yung tipong naaksidente.
Hanggang sa mag-work ako sa isang kompanya sa Ortigas. Sabado kaya
konti lang ang agents na may work saka rest day ng mga nag-oopisina.
Mga 8 p.m. 'yun kaya si manong na lang ang inabutan ko. Sa 36th floor
ang mga work stations namin. Bago ko i-swipe ang ID ko bigla akong
kinilabutan. Sabi ko, baka malamig lang kasi malakas ang ulan sa
labas. Nag-good evening si manong-"Pauwi na?" usisa niya-saka binusisi
ang bag ko. Tapos kinuha ko 'yung payong ko dun sa lagayan sa tabi ng
Hanggang sa tapat ng elevator sa 36th floor ay parang aburido ako.
Pinindot ko 'yung "down" button. Binilang ko sa isip 'yung changing
numbers sa itaas. Nag-ding ang elevator at bumukas ang pinto. Walang
tao. Nakita ko 'yung reflection ko sa salamin. Nilingon ko si manong
tas nag-wave siya sa akin. Pumasok ako sa elevator at pinindot yung
"G" para bumaba sa ground floor.
Kulob 'yung katahimikan. Binibilang ko ulit sa isip ko 'yung numbers.
Nang biglang huminto 'yung elevator. Nag-stop sa 31st floor. Bumukas
'yung door. Walang tao. Nung magsasara na 'yung door biglang may
lumapit na matandang babae, may kasunod na bata. Pinindot ko 'yung
button para bumukas ulit ang pintuan. "Salamat," sabi niya. Nakahawak
sa braso niya 'yung bata.
Nakatingin sa akin 'yung bata. Nakakapote siya, yung transparent.
Pero basang-basa yung buhok niya. Basa pati 'yung gilid ng mga mata
niya. Sumugod ito sa ulan, sabi ko sa sarili ko. Ito namang nanay,
kako, hindi pinayungan ang anak niya. Ang lakas pa naman ng ulan sa
Hindi ko gaanong napansin 'yung mukha nung nanay. Medyo stocky ang
katawan niya. Naka-t-shirt lang siya at maong. Parang ahente ng mga
cosmetic products, 'yung tipong mag-oorder ka gamit ang brochures
nila. May dala siyang malaking shoulder bag. Ang naaalala ko'yung
kuwintas niya na may parang jade na pendant, 'yung nabibili sa mga
Muslim sa Greenhills.
Dinukot ko ang cellphone ko. Isinaksak ko ang earphones sa mga tenga
ko. In-open ko 'yung playlist at ini-scroll down ko sa "On The Radio"
ni Regina Spektor. Clinick ko 'yung play. Sa itaas ng pintuan ng
elevator, pababa nang pababa 'yung mga numbers: 28, 27, 26, 25 ...
Biglang bumukas ang pintuan sa 23rd floor. Nagulat ako. Nagkatinginan
kami ng babae. Hinintay naming may pumasok. As usual, walang tao.
Nakakayamot. Nung magsasara na 'yung elevator, nagbubukas siya ulit.
Ganun siya mga dalawang beses ata. Parang nagha-hang nang half-open.
Pinindot ko 'yung "close" button.
Pagkababa namin sa ground floor, nauna akong lumabas ng elevator.
Sumunod sa akin 'yung ale. Tsinek ng guard ang bag ko. Gumilid ako
para isara ang zipper ng bag ko. 'Yung bag naman ng babae ang tsinek
ng guwardiya.
"Asan po 'yung anak n'yo?" tanong ko sa babae.
"Ha? Anong anak?" pagtataka niya.
"Kanina may kasunod po kayong bata e. Nakakapote."
"Mag-isa lang akong bumaba," sagot niya.
Nagbiro 'yung guard. Baka 'yung batang multo raw ang sumabay sa amin
sa elevator. "Manong naman!" ang takot ng ale. Natahimik na lang ako.

Way back 2007, I worked at the 7th Floor, MCC Steel Corporation as a
Purchasing Assistant for about a week. Since the building is very old,
I have heard so many stories about the ghost who haunts the whole
department. On the third day of my work, during lunchtime I went to
the Comfort Room, it was big and it has 4 cubicles. I chose the fourth
cubicle. The moment I closed the door, I heard a FLUSH coming from the
first cubicle.

It was really weird because I haven't seen anyone who entered the CR
with me. Besides, if someone entered right after me, I would hear the
door opens because it was really heavy. So, I went out and checked the
first cubicle and no one was there, the scary part was, when I saw the
water from the toilet bowl drained down like if someone FLUSHED the
toilet. It scared the hell out of me and I ran as fast as I could.
After that incident, I never went to the Comfort Room on that floor.
This was one of the reasons why I quit the job.

My officemates told me that the 7th floor specially the Comfort Room
was haunted by a ghost lady. Some employees including me saw a blood
on the water tank. Even the reliance of the building was scared every
time she went to the 7th floor and cleans the whole area. She said
that she heard so many things and you would have a very eerie feeling
when you're alone on that floor, even daytime. We were not really sure
what is the reason behind all the haunting. All I know is I don't want
to go back there!

Thank you for reading.

6 Lessons of Life

Source: google+


Lesson 1: Naked Wife
A man is getting into the
shower just as his wife is
finishing up her shower when
the doorbell rings. The wife
quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.
When she opens the door,
there stands Bob, the next
door neighbor. Before she says
a word, Bob says, "I'll give you
$800 to drop that towel." After thinking for a moment,
the woman drops her towel
and stands naked in front of
Bob. After a few seconds, Bob
hands her $800 dollars and
leaves. The woman wraps back
up in the towel and goes back
upstairs. When she gets to
the bathroom, her husband asks,… "Who was that?" "It was Bob
the next door neighbor," she
replies. "Great!" the husband
says, "Did he say anything
about the $800 he owes me?"

Moral of the story:
If you share critical
information pertaining to
credit and risk with your
shareholders in time, you may
be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Lesson 2:
A sales rep, an administration
clerk, and the manager are
walking to lunch when they
find an antique oil lamp. They
rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, "I'll give each
of you just one wish" "Me
first! Me first!" says the
administration clerk. "I want
to be in the Bahamas, driving
a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone.
"Me next! Me next!" says the
sales rep. "I want to be in
Hawaii,relaxing on the beach
with my personal masseuse, an
endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life." Poof!
He's gone. "OK, you're up,"
the Genie says to the
manager. The manager says, "I
want those two back in the
office after lunch."

Moral of the story: Always let
your boss have the first say.

Lesson 3:
A priest offered a lift to a
Nun. She got in and crossed
her legs, forcing her gown to
reveal a leg. The priest nearly
had an accident. After controlling the car, he
stealthily slid his hand up her
leg. The nun said,"Father,
remember Psalm 129?" The
priest removed his hand.
But,changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The
nun once again said, "Father,
remember Psalm 129?" The
priest apologized "Sorry sister
but the flesh is weak."
Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his
arrival at the church, the
priest rushed to look up Psalm
129. It said, "Go forth and
seek, further up, you will find

Moral of the story: If you are
not well informed in your job,
you might miss a great

Lesson 4:
A crow was sitting on a tree,
doing nothing all day. A rabbit
asked him,"Can I also sit like
you and do nothing all day
long?" The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit
sat on the ground below the
crow, and rested. ...A fox jumped on the rabbit
and ate it.

Moral of the story: To be
sitting and doing nothing, you
must be sitting very high up.

Lesson 5: Power of Charisma
A turkey was chatting with a
bull "I would love to be able to
get to the top of that tree,"
sighed the turkey, but I
haven't got the energy." "Well, why don't you nibble on
my droppings?" replied the bull.
"They're packed with
nutrients." The turkey pecked
at a lump of dung and found
that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest
branch of the tree. The next
day, after eating some more
dung, he reached the second
branch. Finally after a fourth
night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the
tree. Soon he was spotted by
a farmer, who shot the
turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: Bullshit
might get you to the top, but
it wont keep you there.

Lesson 6:
A little bird was flying south
for the winter. It was so cold
the bird froze and fell to the
ground into a large field. While
he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some
dung on him. As the frozen
bird lay there in the pile of
cow dung, he began to realize
how warm he was. The dung
was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and
happy, and soon began to sing
for joy. A passing cat heard
the bird singing and came to
investigate. Following the
sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow
dung, and promptly dug him
out and ate him.

Moral of the story:
1. Not everyone who shits on
you is your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you
out of shit is your friend
3. And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your
mouth shut!

Love Keeps Going

"Do you know why I can't relax
around you? It's because you are
so much like him. And sadly… you
are not him." – Zha Mei Le

The Plot:

It all started when Zha Mei Le
was just a little girl; she was
care free and not really bright.
She overheard her parents
agreeing to a divorce and
deciding which child should stay with who, both of them didn't
want Mei Le, so Mei Le decided
to change that. She started
doing her best at everything,
being well behaved, caring,
obedient and even smart! She's a jack of all trade. She had tons of
everyone enjoyed to be with her
at work, and her boss just
admired her hard work. That's
how she even met her boyfriend
Han Yi Feng; through her kind and caring soul, even his family
loved her.. except his brother,
Han Yi Lie. Kind hearted Mei Le,
was just doing a favor that her
boyfriend asked: to pick Yi Lie at
the airport, and right from the start, the two of them disliked
each other. But on the other
hand, Mei Le was also trying
really hard to fulfill her
boyfriend's dream of owning a
bakery. But when she finds out the her relationship with Yi Feng,
isn't as pure as she thought it
was, she finds her self with his
brother! See how this drama
unfolds, when things begin to
heat up!

My thoughts:

It started out okay. Just as what I would always want a romcom series
to be. I had my moments with this series. It's obviously because of
Mike He that I especially picked this one, it's not that I don't like
Cyndi Wang, i have a watched a couple of her series too mind you. And
eventhough she's annoying to watch there is just this charm she's got
that makes you want to see her more. She may not be the best actress
but she can play the "just right" emotions an actress needs. On the
other hand, i haven't watched all of Mike He's project so, so far,
i've only see him more human here though sometimes his acting here
went a little off. But i think it was all right because he is made to
be coldblooded here so crash that out. The crying scenes can really
get into you, it's going to really break your heart seeing that after
all that they've been through especially that part when he was saying
something to Mei Le on the video Things started to pick up
interesting changes at Episode 6/7 so if you think this is just a
typical boring one i would want you to stick around longer. With more
or less 1-2% ratings, I honestly say this series was being underrated.

Spoiler alert:

can i just say this? I'm really annoyed everytime one lead gets a
serious illness that may cause death why do they always want to break
up with the other one? Are they crazy? If it was me, i'll definitely
be honest with my partner. Like . .Hello?! I'm dying soon so why would
i waste time suffer a heartbreak that's totally not necessary??
Instead of breaking up i think i'll do my best to make out the best of
everything like living each day with my other half or something as
long as i live. But in the end, maybe i can only say that because i
haven't experienced it yet. Loving someone unconditionally. So i have
to say, Love really keeps on going. :)

The ending wasn't hanging at all. He made it out of that little room
right? What made me certain was that when his mom said he doesn't want
people to make him wait. Certainly a dead person won't be like that

You Had Me at Halo

Holly: But don't worry. I won't ruin your manly image by crying.

Vince: The good thing about being a loner is that i don't have a manly
image to worry about. Cry away.

Well, isn't it just nice? It ended nicely and i had my happily ever
after thing. . i just can't help but complain, can't the 3 (ie: Gemma,
Holly and Vince) of them remember everything?? I would have loved that
you know?

I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It

"Until you've been dead, you really have no idea how great it is to be
alive.." - Doug

First things first, I only read this because i liked the previous one
that i've read. . The Zombie Queen of Newbury High. I was like isn't
it just gross to kiss a zombie?? More so, to like it? Just plain EWW!
As the story progresses i was rooting for them already. I even
wondered how the story will end, i had my hopes up. Although when i
turned the last page, it struck me. If only i've read between the
lines it was all realistic. Yes, at certain points, one way or another
it's the reality of life. There's no such thing as happily ever after
but you just have to live everyday happily for those people you love.

Zombie Queen of Newbury High

"Trust me, it's in no one's interest to know the truth about what is
really out there." - Chase Miller

I've read about Witches and Wizards, Vampires and Werewolves. Who
would have thought I'd get across a Zombie book? And a quick and funny
read at that. It's hard not to relate to Mia Everett's character. I
don't know how to review it without spilling spoilers here and there.
So I guess i'll leave it to this. Ashby will make you turn the pages
eagerly after the other. :)

A Millionaire's First Love

"I'll regret it for the rest of
my life. But this girl is more
important than 99.9% of my
inheritance that I'm throwing
away." - Kang Jae Kyung


Kang Jae-kyung (Hyun Bin) is
your typical rich kid. He's
arrogant, drives sporty cars,
attends the big clubs and rides
through school corridors on
his motorcycle. As his 18th birthday approaches he's set
to inherit his grandfather's
fortune, but first Jae-kyung
is required to transfer to a
new school in Gangwon Province
and graduate. Until then all access to his penthouse,
cottage and credit cards is
denied. Should he fail to
graduate or drop out then he
loses everything. If he wishes
to give up he'll only get 0.1% of his over-all inheritance.
With little choice he heads out
to the countryside and a small
town in which daily life is far
removed from what he's used to. Shortly after settling into
his new home he meets 19 year-
old Choi Eun-hwan (Lee Yeon-
hee), who just happened to run
into him back in Seoul. They
don't exactly hit it off; he's far too stubborn and cool for
school, while she sees hope for
him and sets out to make him see
it for himself. As they
eventually draw closer,
thanks to a set of coincidences and school projects they learn
more about one another. Kang
learns of Choi's terminal
disease and does what he can to
make her happy. He even tells
his lawyer that he would give up his inheritance so he could
buy the orphanage for her. Once during the rehearsal of a
play at the school, Kang Jae-
kyung notices that the play is
actually like the incident
that had happened in his life.
He recalls a childhood memory of being at the orphanage at
Gangwondo, where he had met
Eun-Whan and had made a
promise to return in ten days.
He went to find her and told
her that he was unable to fulfill his promise and did not
remember his promise or the
girl because his parents had
died in a car accident on that
same day so he erased all his
memories of the unfortunate past. The day of the play came and
Jae-kyung asked his classmate
a favor to trade places, him as
the Colonel rather than the
maid. He went to Eun-whan's side
and she asked him if he could put on the socks he bought
earlier to her. While they were
dancing, she felt a sudden pain
and went backstage then
returned much to Jae-kyung's
worry. Eun-whan's mother came to watch the show. Later, they celebrated the
success of the play. The
couple sat on the swing, Eun-
whan told Jae-kyung "Sarang-
hae" (Korean: "I love you.")
and that she's sleepy, sleeping for 3 minutes. The first snow
came. On their graduation day, Choi
Eun-whan received the Award of
Friendship but didn't come as
she never woke up, three
minutes was over. A white
bouquet of flower sat instead her seat next to Jae-kyung's
chair. He stayed for a while and
walked outside carrying the
flowers. His grandpa's lawyer
came, congratulated him and
told him that the inheritance is his now as of that moment. Jae-kyung
built a house with
many windows in memory of Eun-
whan. He stated after the 50
first snows hit its windows,
they will meet again.

Another certified TEARJERKER.

"Let me live." - Choi Eun Hwan

The Undomestic Goddess

"But the truth is I need help." - Samantha Sweeting

Just lol. A lawyer who doesn't even know how to sew button turned into
a housekeeper along the way. Just LOL. I couldn't help but snort when
poor Mr. Geiger asked for her specialty.

Also, how much do i love the first time Nathaniel arrived at the doorstep.

Whenever there's a coming visitor, i also feel restless like what if
they will recognize Samantha?

I also came to the part where i hated Samantha. I mean she's the BEST
lawyer in town how come she gets to remember important things too
late? Goodness! Okay, i need to calm down. @_@

when everything got exposed i couldn't help but snort with laughter.

only one question left in mind.

How would HE take it?

And when i turned the last page after everything that's happened all i
could say was. .


That's it?

I need to flip the other page just in case Kinsella is kidding me.

I've Got Your Number

"Once you've started
cheating, does it matter what your methods are?" - Poppy Wyatt

I read this book because:
1. I fell in love with Sophie Kinsella the moment i've read "Can You
Keep a Secret?".
2. I've read MANY positive reviews about this.

I will never forget Mr. Yamasaki or Single Ladies ever again. Lol.
I came to a point where i hated Poppy's "helping" churvas, but that
didn't take up too much time because everything went well afterwards.
And how much do i love their texting churvas? That's a bit realistic right?
i also happen to love the Magnum drama. And the text brigades on the
wedding day. I find it really thoughtful if not sweet. :)

Overall, i can actually say that i love this book. It took me only a
few days to finish this one, i could have did it in one sitting if i
hadn't got anything to do. :)

Once again, thank you for such an awesome read Sophie Kinsella. <3

Watch it!!

Nah. . Just wanna share that I bought a new watch today. It doesn't
cost much but this is the very first time that i get to pick and buy
myself a watch. :)

Aall Izz Well. . Be what you want to be!

"Pursue excellence, and success will follow, pants down." -Rancho

Okay, i watched this movie without expecting anything. Based on the
title i honestly thought it was just another idiotic jack-ass kinda
Imagine what i felt when i figured out what kind of movie this is.
This movie is so good, if not the best.
It's motivational, it's a movie about friendship, perseverance and more.
This movie was released in 2009, so it's been 4 years. Yep. I'm the
idiot. Lol.

Can i also say that Rancho/Mr. Wangdu is the totally gwapo version of
Mr. Bean? :)

Can You Keep a Secret?

"But it seems to me that these guys don't get to the top without
trampling over a few people on the way. They have to be pretty
ruthless to be so successful." -Jack Harper

This is the first Sophie Kinsella book i've read. As i turned the
pages i had a few number of smirks and giggles and when almost done, i
felt a bit mad at Jemima. I wanna do the same thing that Lissy did to
her. Lol. This book is fantastic but it didn't give me the
i-wanna-read-it-again feeling. But yea, it was a pretty good journey
if not better. :)

Avada Kedavra

As I turned the book cover close, it dawned on me. My magical journey
at Privet Drive, The Burrow, Grimmauld Place, Shell Cottage,
Gringotts, Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley, Leaky Cauldron,
Ollivander's, Flourish and Blotts, King's Cross and most especially
Hogwarts has officially ended.




I managed to finish the last book after sooooo many years.
I deliberately tossed my HP books after Sirius Black died in Book 5
and after that i heard a rumor that Dumbledore will die too not long
I was so heartbroken.
poor harry potter.
but then not long ago, i had a harry potter movie marathon out of
boredom after that i decided to ACCIO the books and read it from the
first part to the last part.
I'm glad i did.
But now realization hits.
The book's finished.
And a part of me is missing it already.
All's well that ends well.

Though it wouldn't hurt if Rowling writes an 8th book.
i mean i would surely want to know how the kiddos manage at Hogwarts.

Norman: Because you want
everyone to hurt just as
much as you are. So whenever
you wake up, you play this
game, but you don't play fair! Aggie: They hurt me!
Norman: So you hurt them
back? Aggie: I wanted
everyone to see how rotten
they were!
Norman: You're just like them, Agatha!


In the small town of Blithe
Hollow, Massachusetts, a boy
named Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is able to speak with the
dead, including his
late grandmother (Elaine Stritch) and various ghosts in town. Almost
no one believes
him and he is isolated
emotionally from his family
while being ridiculed by his
peers. Norman becomes friends with
Neil Downe (Tucker Albrizzi), an overweight boy who is
bullied himself and finds
Norman a kindred spirit. During
rehearsal of a school play
commemorating the town's witch
execution of three centuries ago, Norman has a vision of the
town's past and being pursued
as a witch by the town's
citizenry. Afterward, the boys
are confronted by Norman's
estranged and seemingly deranged uncle Mr.
Prenderghast (John Goodman) who tells his nephew that he
soon must take up his regular
ritual to protect the town.
Soon after this encounter,
Prenderghast dies. Norman soon has another
vision, creating a public
spectacle of himself, which
leads to his father (Jeff Garlin) grounding him. His mother (Leslie
Mann) tells him that his father's stern manner
is because he is afraid for him.
The next day, Norman is
confronted by the
Prenderghast's ghost who
tells him that the ritual must be performed with a certain
book before sundown that day.
Norman sets off to retrieve
the book. He then goes to the
graves of the five men and two
women who were cursed by the witch they condemned, but
finds the book is merely a
series of fairy tales. Alvin (Christopher Mintz- Plasse), a school
bully, interferes with the reading
until after sundown. A ghostly
storm resembling the witch
appears in the air while the
cursed dead arise and pursue
the boys until they meet Norman's sister, Courtney
(Anna Kendrick), Neil and his older brother, Mitch (Casey Affleck),
who have come to retrieve Norman. The kids are
pursued by the zombies into
town, but Norman contacts
classmate Salma (Hannah
Noyes) for help, who tells
them to access the Town Hall's archives for the location of
the witch's unmarked grave. As the kids make their way to
the Town Hall, the zombies are
attacked by the citizenry.
During the riot, the kids break
into the archives but cannot
find the information they need. As the mob moves to attack
Town Hall, the witch storm
appears and Norman climbs the
Hall's tower to read the book,
but the witch strikes it with
lightning and causes him to fall back down into the
archives. Unconscious, Norman has a
dream where he learns that the
witch was Agatha Prenderghast
(Jodelle Micah Ferland), a little girl of his age who was
also a medium. After awakening,
Norman encounters the zombies
and realizes that all they
wanted was to speak with him to
ensure he would take up the ritual to minimize the harm of
the mistake they made with
Agatha. Norman attempts to help the
zombies slip away to have them
guide him to Agatha's grave,
but are cornered by the mob.
Courtney confronts the crowd
and convinces them to back off. Judge Hopkins (Bernard Hill) guides
Norman's family to the
grave in a forest. Before the
grave is reached, Agatha's
magic separates Norman from
the others. Norman finds the grave and
interacts with Agatha in the
spirit dimension, determined to
stop the cataclysmic tantrum
she had been having over the
years. She asks him to leave her be, but Norman holds his
ground, telling her he
understands how she feels as
an outcast. Norman endures her
assault and eventually
convinces her that her vengeance is accomplishing
nothing and persuades her to
stop. Norman tells her that
there must have been someone
who was kind to her. Agatha recalls happy memories
with her mother. She is able to
find a measure of peace and
move on to the afterlife. The
storm dissipates, and she and
the zombies all fade away. The town cleans up and regards
Norman as a hero. At the end,
Norman watches a horror film
with the ghost of his
grandmother, and his family
joins him.

Kate & Leopold


In 1876, Leopold Alexis Elijah Walker Thomas Gareth
Mountbatten, Duke of Albany, is a stifled dreamer. Strict
Uncle Millard (Paxton Whitehead) has no patience for Leopold's
disrespect for the
monarchy, chastising him and
telling him he must marry a
rich American, as the
Mountbatten family finances
are depleted. His uncle has told him that on his "thirtieth
birthday he had become a
blemish to the family name". The Duke finds Stuart Besser
(Liev Schreiber), an amateur physicist (and descendant of Leopold) perusing his
schematic diagrams and taking
photographs of them. He had
seen him earlier at Roebling's speech about the Brooklyn Bridge.
Leopold follows Stuart and tries to save him from
falling off the unfinished
bridge; only to fall with him
into a temporal portal between
centuries. Leopold awakens in 21st
century New York. He is at first confused and thinks that he
has been kidnapped. Stuart
says that he has created
formulae to forecast portals
in the temporal universe and
that Leopold must stay inside his apartment until the portal
opens again a week later. As
Stuart takes his dog out, he is
injured by falling into the elevator shaft, and is eventually institutionalized
for speaking about his
scientific discovery.
(According to Stuart's books,
Leopold's unintentional time
travel to the 21st century has caused a disruption of all
elevators, him leaving the
19th century before he could
register for a patent.) Leopold is intrigued by the
cynical and ambitious Kate
McKay (Meg Ryan), Stuart's ex- girlfriend, who comes to the
apartment for her Palm Pilot stylus. He observes that she is
a "career woman" and that her
field, market research, is a
fine avocation for a woman and states that he once dated a
librarian from Sussex. Kate dismisses him and demands that
he take Stuart's dog for a
walk. Leopold is overwhelmed
to see that Roebling's bridge
is still standing. Back at the
apartment, he befriends Charlie (Breckin Meyer), Kate's brother and an actor
between gigs, who believes him
to be an actor as well,
steadfast to his character. Kate and Leopold become
romantically involved, as they
dine and tour New York. When shooting begins on the
commercial in which Leopold
has agreed to act, he finds the
product, diet margarine,
disgusting. He cannot
understand how Kate would have him endorse a flawed item
without qualms, and declares
that "when someone is involved
in something entirely without
merit, one withdraws". Echoing
his uncle, Kate says that sometimes one has to do things
one doesn't want to. He chides
her about integrity. She retorts, "I don't have time for
pious speeches from two
hundred year old men who have
not worked a day in their life".
Their dalliance seems at an
end. Stuart escapes from the mental hospital, and sends Leopold back
to his own time.
That night, while Kate is
accepting her promotion at a
company banquet, he and
Charlie are racing to meet her.
Moments before she goes on stage, they arrive and produce
pictures from Stuart's camera
that show her in 1876. Stuart
says that he had thought he
disrupted the spacetime continuum, but actually "the
whole thing is a beautiful 4-D pretzel of kismetic inevitability".
Kate chooses a life with
Leopold over her career, and
the three of them escape to
the Brooklyn Bridge. There,
catching the portal before it
closes at midnight, Kate vanishes into 1876, where
Leopold appears resigned to be
pragmatic, as Kate and his
uncle had advised him, and
marry Miss Tree for her family
fortune; but, just as he is about to announce his
intention to become engaged to
Miss Tree, as he opens his
mouth to speak, he sees Kate
and announces her name, Kate
McKay, as his bride-to-be. In the closing scene, they kiss
and the camera is drawn
outward showing a
grandfather's clock depicting

The Rottweiler

A young couple had been
married for several years

To not feel alone, they

things are not as bad as they
seem, but the opposite.
The next time we are
to judge and condemn
anyone remember the story
of a faithful dog, so learn
bear false against a person

Throwout the LifeLine (a story about choice)

*credits: jamsubzero of pD
After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns, the church's pastor
slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit and, before he gave his
sermon for the evening, briefly introduced a guest minister who was in
the service that evening. In the introduction, the pastor told the
congregation that the guest minister was one of his dearest childhood
friends and that he wanted him to have a few moments to greet the
church and share whatever he felt would be appropriate for the
service. With that, an elderly man stepped up to the pulpit and began
to speak,

"A father, his son, and a friend of his son were sailing off the
Pacific Coast when fast approaching storm blocked any attempt to get
back to shore. The waves were so high, that even though the father was
an experienced sailor, he could not keep the boat upright, and the
three were swept into the ocean as the boat capsized." The old man
hesitated for a moment, making eye contact with two teenagers who
were, for the first time since the service began, looking somewhat
interested in his story. The aged minister continued with his story,
"Grabbing a rescue line, the father had to make the most excruciating
decision of his life ... to which boy he would throw the other end of
the life line. He only had seconds to make the decision.

The father knew that his son was a Christian and he also knew that his
son's friend was not. The agony of his decision could not be matched
by the torrent of waves. "As the father yelled out, 'I love you, son!'
he threw out the life line to his son's friend. By the time the father
had pulled the friend back to the capsized boat, his son had
disappeared beneath the raging swells into the black of night. His
body was never recovered."

By this time, the two teenagers were sitting up straight in the pew,
anxiously waiting for the next words to come out of the old minister's
mouth. "The father," he continued, "knew his son would step into
eternity with Jesus, and he could not bear the thought of his son's
friend stepping into an eternity without Jesus. Therefore, he
sacrificed his son to save his son's friend. How great is the love of
God that He should do the same for us. Our heavenly Father sacrificed
His only begotten Son that we could be saved. I urge you to accept His
offer to rescue you and take a hold of the life line He is throwing
out to you in this service." With that, the old man turned and sat
back down in his chair as silence filled the room.

The pastor again walked slowly to the pulpit and delivered a brief
sermon with an invitation at the end. However, no one responded to the
appeal. Within minutes after the service ended, the two teenagers were
at the old man's side. "That was a nice story," politely stated one of
the boys, "but I don't think it was very realistic for a father to
give up his only son's life in hopes that the other boy would become a
Christian." "Well, you've got a point there," the old man replied,
glancing down at his worn Bible.

A big smile broadened his narrow face, and he once again looked up at
the boys and said, "It sure isn't very realistic, is it? But I'm
standing here today to tell you that THAT story gives me a glimpse of
what it must have been like for God to give up His Son for me. You see
... I was that father and your pastor is my son's friend."

A girl went to her friends house and she ended up staying longer than
planned, and had to walk home alone.

She wasn't afraid because it was a small COMMUNITY and she lived only
a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the bike trail Diane asked God to keep her
safe from harm and danger.

When she reached the alley, which was a shortcut to her house, she
decided to take it.

However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end
as though he was waiting for her.

She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection.

Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round
her, she felt as though someone was walking with her.

When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man
and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had
been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been

Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have
been her, she began to weep.

Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she
decided to go to the police station.

She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story.

The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to
see if she could identify him.

She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the
alley the night before.

When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke
down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was
anything they could do for her.

She asked them to ask the man one question.

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.

When the policeman asked him, he answered, 'Because she wasn't alone.

She had two tall men walking on either side of her.

Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're not alone.

A Post-Mother's Day Tribute

My mom only had one eye. I
hated her, she was such an
embarrassment. My mom ran a
small shop at a flea market. She
collected little weeds and such
to sell, anything for the money
we needed she was such an
embarrassment. There was this
one day during elementary
school. I remember that it was
field day, and my mom came. I
was so embarrassed. How could
she do this to me? I threw her a
hateful look and ran out. The
next day at school..."Your mom
only has one eye?!" and they
taunted me.
I wished that my mom would
just disappear from this world
so I said to my mom, "Mom,
why don't you have the other
eye?! You're only going to make
me a laughingstock. Why don't
you just die?" My mom did not
respond. I guess I felt a little
bad, but at the same time, it felt
good to think that I had said
what I'd wanted to say all this
Maybe it was because my mom
hadn't punished me, but I didn't
think that I had hurt her feelings
very badly.
That night...I woke up, and went
to the kitchen to get a glass of
water. My mom was crying
there, so quietly, as if she was
afraid that she might wake me. I
took a look at her, and then
turned away. Because of the
thing I had said to her earlier,
there was something pinching
at me in the corner of my heart.
Even so, I hated my mother who
was crying out of her one eye.
So I told myself that I would
grow up and become successful,
because I hated my one-eyed
mom and our desperate
Then I studied really hard. I left
my mother and came to Seoul
and studied, and got accepted in
the Seoul University with all the
confidence I had. Then, I got
married. I bought a house of my
own. Then I had kids, too. Now
I'm living happily as a successful
man. I like it here because it's a
place that doesn't remind me of
my mom.
This happiness was getting
bigger and bigger, when
someone unexpected came to
see me "What?! Who's this?!"...
It was my mother...Still with her
one eye. It felt as if the whole
sky was falling apart on me. My
little girl ran away, scared of my
mom's eye.
And I asked her, "Who are you? I
don't know you!!!" as if I tried
to make that real. I screamed at
her "How dare you come to my
house and scare my daughter!
Get out of here now!" And to this,
my mother quietly answered,
"oh, I'm so sorry. I may have
gotten the wrong address," and
she disappeared. Thank good
ness... she doesn't recognize me.
I was quite relieved. I told
myself that I wasn't going to
care, or think about this for the
rest of my life.
Then a wave of relief came upon
me... one day, a letter regarding
a school reunion came to my
house. I lied to my wife saying
that I was going on a business
trip. After the reunion, I went
down to the old shack, that I
used to call a house...just out of
curiosity there, I found my
mother fallen on the cold
ground. But I did not shed a
single tear. She had a piece of
paper in her hand.... it was a
letter to me.
My Son,
I think my life has been long
enough now. And... I won't visit
Seoul anymore... but would it be
too much to ask if I wanted you
to come visit me once in a
while? I miss you so much. And I
was so glad when I heard you
were coming for the reunion.
But I decided not to go to the
school.... For you... I'm sorry
that I only have one eye, and I
was an embarrassment for you.
You see, when you were very
little, you got into an accident,
and lost your eye. As a mother, I
couldn't stand watching you
having to grow up with only
one eye... so I gave you mine... I
was so proud of my son that
was seeing a whole new world
for me, in my place, with that
eye. I was never upset at you for
anything you did. The couple
times that you were angry with
me. I thought to myself, it's
because he loves me.' I miss the
times when you were still young
around me.
I miss you so much. I love you.
You mean the world to me. My
world shattered! Then I cried for
the person who lived for me. My

My cellphone's beeping sound woke me up one night. Used to receiving
important messages only, I grabbed my cell and sleepily pushed the
keys and read the message.
"Hi there! Care 2 b my txtmate?"
Not knowing who the sender was, I deleted the message right away and
placed the phone on my bedside table, I tried to go back to sleep.
I had just closed my eyes when I heard the message tone again.
"Hi there, again! Care 2 b my txtmate?" again, the message said.
"Who the hell could this be asking for txtmate at the wee hours of the
night?" I asked myself.
Again, without bothering to reply I deleted the message.
I was never a 'textmaniac' - someone who enjoys texting anyone and
everyone even at the wee hours of night, not to mention during the
day. My parents, who were always out of the country forced me to own a
cellphone. They told me that having one was more convenient - they
could monitor me even if they're miles away.
I wanted to turn the unit off, but since my mother was fond of calling
me at night, just to check if I was safe at home, I decided not to.
Just as I was to close my eyes and return to my dreamless sleep, the
phone beeped again.
Same number...Such determination!
"Ply reply 2 dis msg & b an angel & save me frm dis abyss of emptiness!!!"
I never knew why, but the message struck me. I got up and pushed the
keys... I just realized I was replying to the message.
"Im not an angel, n f u want som1 2 save u, m not superman... I'm just
a simple prson who u wake up at dis r of my nyt!!! Nway, do I know u?"
I typed.
Seconds later came the reply.
"Nope. U don't know dis lonely soul. Nor does she know u. But I want 2
b ur frnd. I'm Mikaella Cervantes. U?"
"Just call me Julius. How'd u get my no.?" I sent back.
"Hi Julius, nice 2 meet u. Just shuffled the last two digits of mine,"
she replied.
That was the first and maybe the last time I met someone over the cellphone.
We exchanged messages and learned so much about each other that night.
We only said goodbye when my alarm clock rang at 5:00 AM! I had to
prepare for school!
And that was also how it all started. A day would not pass without it
loving and thoughtful messages from her. It was only then I had
learned to appreciate text messages and become eager and excited
everytime my phone beeped, hoping it would be her.
Mikaella brought out something about me that I never knew I had; I
realized I could also be a romantic person... even if it's just
through text messaging.
"Keep me as a frnd & I will keep u in my heart. Lock it up & throw
away d key so dat no1 can evr tke u away from me..."One day, she sent
this message to me.
I replied: 'In life, we seldom find a true prson & f u evr find 1,
hold on & nvr let go... value dat prson coz it's lyf's gift worth
keeping & holdin on..."
I never knew why, but her response sent shivers to my spine, " Value d
people hu hav touched ur life bcoz u will never know just wen dey will
walk out of ur lyf & nvr come back again."
I couldn't understand what I felt that moment, but one thing I was
sure though... I could not go on a day without a single word from her.
I'd become used to having her, eventhough we had not met personally.
But truly, she already occupied a space, a large one, in fact in my
I texted her back. "Dont come close f l8r ull jst pass by; don't touch
me f l8r ull jst let me cry; dont luv me f l8r ull jst leave me and
won't stay..."
I didn't know why I sent her that message, but somehow I felt, every
word came from my heart. In the short span of time we were sending
messages to each other, I knew, I was starting to keep her in my

I called her once. The voice on the other end was like an angel's.
Soft, kind, full of love. Yet, there was something in it I couldn't
define. We only talked for a few minutes. Before she hung up, she told
me not to call again. According to her, it would be better if we would
just text each other.
But the voice kept ringing, not only in my head, but in my heart, I'd
long to hear it once more. I tried to call her again, but she never
answered the phone. She just kept on sending messages and quotations,
which I copied in a little notebook. Hopeless romantic? I didn't know.
All I could say was that all the messages she sent me were wonderful,
they came from the heart and cut through the heart.
"Though we r miles apart, u r always n my heart. I close my eyes & der
u r. Even f I'll see u never, I'll always b hir 2 care 4 u, far longer
dan 4ever..."
One December night, she sent me this message. By that time we had been
exchanging messages for more than a month. God knew how happy I was.
She was right. Although we had not seen each other, what we felt was
enough to make us both realize what was keeping us together.
I sent her another message, "Loving u secretly is a hard thing 4 me 2
do,hoping, wondring that u will feel d same way 2, but I can't read r
mind f u luv me 2. But whatever it is, I'll still be loving u."
"How I wish I cud really tell u how much u mean 2 me, but m afraid 2
love, scared 2 get hurt... I hope dat u will wait 4 me & pray dat u
will not get tired of loving me...=)" was her reply.
And then I replied again. " The reason y I met u is bcoz of destiny
but f destiny will suggest dat I'll live w/o u, den, I'll lie not by
destiny but of free will."
Whenever I asked her when we would meet personally, she always
answered, "Soon...soon, love...soon."
Not seeing each other did not lessen, even a bit, what I felt for
her...rather, it even grew deeper and stronger each day. And I was
sure, she felt the same way, too. Love messages continued to flow
through our lines, between our hearts, which made us go on each day
with the thought that sooner, we would see each other, face to face,
heart to heart.
Just a few days before Christmas. She stopped sending messages. At
first I just though she had ran out of prepaid.
But there was something that kept bothering me... I couldn't
understand what was it, but it made me fell nervous. I tried to call
her but she wouldn't answer. Nevertheless, I continued sending
Suddenly one night, just three days before our Lord's birthday. I
heard my phone's message tone again... at last!It was from her!
"Oftentyms we say gudbye 2 d 1 we luv w/o wanting 2. Though dat
doesn't mean dat we stopped loving dem or we stopped 2 care. Sometyms,
GOODBYE is a painful way 2 say I LOVE YOU."
I was dumfounded. I didn't know what to think of. What did she mean? I
texted her back, searching for answers, but found nothing. I called
her but she would not answer.
For the first time in my life, I felt so miserable...desperate...
empty. I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to lose her. I had
learned to love her. And I wanted to be with her forever.
The following days I felt nothing but emptiness. It seemed that
Mikaella took the life out of me. I missed her so much...her
messages...The tones that would tell me she'd sent another loving
message. Nothing around me could feel the emptiness I felt.
Tut...tut...tut...tut...tut...just a day before Christmas, my cell
beeped again. It was her!
"Meet me at d café, 10 AM 2day," I read aloud, making sure the message
was true, then I jumped with joy upon hearing from her again.
Hurriedly, I got myself ready and I went to the mall. I knew it was
still early, but I wanted to be there before she arrived.
I arrived at the meeting place ten minutes earlier. I was surprised to
see her already there, smiling at me. She was very beautiful, Black,
deep-set eyes that spoke a thousand words; small, kissable lips; a
nose perfectly chiseled and long black hair - everything in her was
beautiful. And yes, her eyes radiated kindness and love...but there
was a flicker of something in them...sadness?
"Hi, Julius," said the angelic voice I had been dreaming of each
night. The voice that I had waited to hear for so long. "Please sit
down." "I am very pleased to meet you, Mikaella," I said, as I took my
seat and gave the roses I brought for her.
"Thanks, Julius," she smiled, obviously pleased with the roses. I knew
she loved pink roses.
"You are always welcome, Love" "Julius, I can't stay," she said,
sadness in her voice, or was it tears? "I really must go."
"But we just met, Mikaella. Can't we talk a little longer?" I asked, pleadingly.
"I can't really. I just came here to see you and thank you for the
time you shared with me. Thank you for everything, Julius. I will
never forget will always be here in my heart."

She was looking at me straight into the eyes, and I could really feel
the sadness in her voice and I swear, there was something in her voice
and I swear, there was something in those lovely yet lonely eyes...
She got up and smiled at me, lovingly.
"Tomorrow morning, please come and visit me," he said and gave me a
piece of white linen paper.
I read what was written and when I looked up, she was gone. The
following day, Christmas, I woke up early and excitedly readied
myself,thinking of her. I hurriedly went to flower shop and bought a
dozen pink roses - for Mikaella.
They lived in an exclusive subdivision.
Upon reaching their house, I told the guard who I was and that I was
looking for Mikaella.
The guard stared at me, sadness and amazement in his eyes and told me
to wait as he called the owner of the house. As I looked at him while
he was going inside the house, only then I noticed that the house was
brightly lit.
A woman went out and walked towards me, smiling sadly.
"Hi, I'm Maria, Mikaella's mother. Please come inside, Julius." While
we were walking towards the mansion, she explained to me why she knew
me very well - Mikaella had always been talking about her friend,
Julius. I hardly understood what she was saying. I was busy thinking
why Mikaella's mother was crying while talking to me.
As we came near the great hall of the house, it dawned on me that
there was a wake inside, Maybe, a relative passed away, I thought. But
deep in my heart, I was trembling and afraid.
As we entered the hall where so many people were silently mourning
while others were praying, shaking, I asked her mother. "Where is
She held my hand and silently, led me to the coffin which was
surrounded by flowers - pink roses, nothing but pinkroses.
No words could explain how I felt when I gazed at the coffin and saw
who was lying there. The same beautiful girl I met...
A man came beside me, I knew he was Mika's father.
"We are so glad you came, Julius. Mika talked of you all the time. She
even asked that her phone be buried with her.
She said that in that way, you could still send her messages and you
would always be with her."
I couldn't believe everything... My mind was in limbo.
"But how can this be? We just saw each other yesterday."
"That can't possibly be. She passed away three days ago. She had been
suffering from a heart disease since she was a child," said her
"But..." I couldn't find the words to say.
"She told us not to bother reaching you, "her mother said, still in
tears," she said you will come, and here you are.
Pain and bitterness overwhelmed me. I cried silently beside her,
staring at her lovely face, memorizing every line of my friend's face,
a face I knew I would never forget while I was still alive.
After the internment that afternoon, I went to the chapel she hadtold
me she went everyday.
Sitting there praying and crying to God, I held my phone and typed: "U
taught me how 2 care; u taught me how 2 b kind; u shwd me how 2 lyk
som; u shwd me how 2 luv; but ders 1 thing didnt teach me & it hurts
mor - u didnt teach me how 2 let go. I LOVE YOU"
I sent the message, and though I knew she wouldn't be able to hold her
CP again, I knew in my heart she would get my message. I never
expected a reply, yet as my phone beeped again,felt a shiver down my
spine. The sender's number did not appear on the screen, and tears
rolled down my cheeks as I read the message.

"Let go of d hand of d person u love, but dont let go of God's hand. 4
if u hold 2 his hand. He may b holding d person u love n d ader hand 2
let u hold each other again."
"I will never forget you, Mikaella and will never let go..." I vowed
to her and to myself as I left the church.
