Infinite Light

Image from blog.myheritage.com 

For the light that shines since I opened my eyes,
so warm and bright whether calm or in strife,
never falters, never dims on each nook and cranny,
the very same guides me to see life's a daisy.

My voice may waver but my heart never shies,
for my love for you's the kind that never dies.
How can one forget that so special person,
who only has devotion for what she see's perfection?

To the One above, I can't thank Him enough,
for without her, it would be so tough.
Yes I'm lucky, and we all are,
these angels on earth are nothing but above par.

Before anything else, I apologize. This post really is personal and is not intended for public consumption. I'm doing this for me, for my own good. I don't think I owe anyone explanations. Oh, well, if you insist and want to share in my insanity, I don't have any means to stop you...

Transform Thy Old Tshirts

Oh yes, I remember this being a sort of a trend for the young people around last year. 

But I was too busy then, and the video of Adam Saaks I'd seen had gaping holes everywhere, not at all apt for an old hag like me.

But his efforts failed him, and then he receives an offer to do a high-profile rematch with his nemesis "The Ayatollah", the match could be his ticket to bring back the old days once again.Failing health and all, he must decide whether life is better lived inside the ring, or outside of it.

Knocked Up (2007)

Article written by Choc:

I finally had the chance to see Judd Apatow's follow-up movie to his monster hit the 40-yr old Virgin. I've read reviews about this one and after watching the movie, I can understand why so many women think this movie is sexist (and too vulgar). Even its ridiculously pretty star Katherine Heigl is on record calling this movie "a little sexist," and elaborates:
Knocked Up 2007 - Directed by Judd Apatow

"It paints women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as goofy, fun-loving guys. It was hard for me to love the movie."

I don't think that's the case however.

The Painted Veil (2006)

"Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people."
-The Painted Veil

An in-depth review by Choc:

Everybody says it, and everyone likes hearing the word, but what does "love" really mean?

One cynic said: "Love is just a ploy, devised by the gods to continue the species..."

Surely, not all of us share the sentiment of this hater. Most of us would rather intoxicate ourselves with the effervescent words of the great sages of love... this is why as high-school students, naive and idealistic, WE ALL loved Shakespeare...
