A poem

O My Gosh I love this poem written by Aly El Sahly, an African kid.
It was nominated for the best 2005 poem.

When I born, I Black,
When I grow up, I Black,
When I go in Sun, I Black,
When I scared, I Black,
When I sick, I Black,
And when I die, I still black..
And you White fella,
When you born, you Pink,
When you grow up, you White,
When you go in Sun, you Red,
When you cold, you Blue,
When you scared, you Yellow,
When you sick, you Green,
And when you die, you Gray..
And you calling me Colored ??

I missed the old Disney movie

I just finished watching Horton Hears a Who. I noticed before I watch the movie that the voice for Jojo character would be done by Jesse McCartney. I knew Jesse is a singer and that is why I expect he sings in the movie. Sadly, Jojo only had given several lines for the whole movie. And the worst part is that there is only one song, ONE SONG, for the entire movie, which is the end song.

I always expected a lot of songs when I watch cartoon animation. Remember the old times Disney movies such as Aladdin, Snow white, Cinderella, and all the other fairytales with their princesses? They all have songs! I guess the producer has lost the sense of musical theme in their movies.

I also missed the princesses and their knight in shiny armor.
Why isn’t anyone make that kind of movie anymore?
Has they all realized that fairy tales is overrated?
And building a dream for little children that someday, somehow, a prince will come is not going to come true?

No matter how impossible for that to come true, don’t we still like to dream?
A dream that maybe someday, somehow, will give us eternal happiness.

Maybe your image of prince charming isn’t always a handsome prince with a white horse.
Maybe your prince charming is a house with view of an ocean.
Or maybe it is to be a CEO in some huge-multibillion company.

No matter how impossible it might sound right now, I believe that we, as human, have never given a wish without the power to make it come true.
Just believe in yourself and your inner strength.
You have the power to be whatever you want to be.

Maybe the road is rough at the moment, buy I believe, like Cinderella, I will someday meet someone who will help me realize my dream.

My own prince charming.

The Moment of Truth

How far would people go for money?

Surely money is important, but if you have to sacrifice your marriage or relationships with your loved ones, would you do it anyway?

I watched this TV game show yesterday. It is called THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.

The contestant will be asked to answer 50 questions about their personal life prior to the actual show and is hooked up to a polygraph. It will be only a “yes” or “no” questions. In the actual show, only 21 questions will be asked. If the answer is correct, they will move on to the next question. As the level gets higher, the questions will be more and more personal and will mostly give affects to their loved ones. The highest level (level 6) will gives a prize amount of $500,000.

I watched the first episodes last week. Some of the questions are:

Do you think you are a better parent to your children than your own mother?
Do you have any secrets that if your husband knows might end up your marriage?
Have you ever feel ashamed telling people that you are a Jew?

And some of the questions from the other episodes are:

Have you ever had sexual relations with a man more than twice your age?
Since you’ve been married, have you ever accepted a romantic gift from any other man?

Surely most of the questions will be answered “yes” for the sake of television drama. But if it is true, will you put your husband/wife/parents on the line for the sake of money?

I wonder, if I was to be on the show, what questions will I get? Surely have to be something dark, that if my boyfriend / bestfriend / parents know will break their heart. He..he… I don’t think the producer will put me on the show. My life is so plain boring and open. Even though I have a secret or two, it will not be as interesting as “Have you ever received money after you had a sexual encounter with others?

Lindsay Price on Lipstick Jungle

Anyone who loves Sex and The City must know the battle between Cashmere Mafia and Lipstick Jungle. Personally I love Lipstick more because the three girls seems to have more connection - the way bestfriends have to be. Whereas Cashmere is more about powerful females life without a real connection about the friendships between them. I still enjoy watching it for the sake of the fashion and the wardrobe that Lucy Liu wears =P

Anyway, I've been wondering, does Lindsay Price (Victoria) had a nose job? She is pretty though. And she sings!

I was drown to the lyrics from the last scene on the 7th episodes: "Could you ever really love someone like me?" and so I googled it. To my surprise, the singer was Lindsay Price - THE actress.

The full lyrics isn't that fabs, but its good enough to hear. I am still searching for the songs. Anyone know where I could download it?

Someone like me

Im looking at all the time thats gone.
It seems that i cant say
Of all the things that i have done wrong
I wish that i could change.
I hear you say it doesnt really matter.
Hold on to me and in the end youll see.


When all your days go wrong
Its allright
Ill never stop trying.
When all your tears have gone
Could you ever really love someone like me?

Verse 2

It wears me out to see what i have done
And try to make it right.
Tears me up all the little things
That i can never bring to you.
Its true you see it always really matters.
Hold on well try and in the end youll see.


When all your days go wrong
Its allright
Ill never stop trying.
When all your tears have gone
Could you ever really love someone like me?


And when i say that i dont give a damn,
That you were never there,
That i,
I never tried,
All the times that i cried
I never really cared for you.
Not true.


When all your days go wrong
Its allright
Ill never stop trying.
When all your tears have gone
Could you ever really love someone like me?
Never really love someone?
Ever really love someone . . .

Shrine of Remembrance

During the extra long weekend of Easter me and my bffs went to the CBD and became a tourist for the day. We went to The Shrine of Remembrance at St. Kilda Road. It is a monument in favour to the people who lost their lives during the battle. The script written in the monument says:

" This monument was erected by a grateful people to the honoured memory of the men and women of Victoria who served the empire in the great war of 1914 - 1918"

The monument is breathtakingly fabulous from afar. Inside there are some memorial pictures and story about the war. It was a little bit spooky and we didn't go far inside (Imagine dark-dimmed light, high pillars, cold breeze, and stairs which lead to i-don't-know-where).

Not far from the monument is the Botanical Garden. It is enormous garden. We only managed to walk to the green house, which is sadly closed by the time we get there. My friend held the rest of the photos, so mean time this is all I have :P (will update later).

On the way back I snapped the pictures of the famous Fliders Street Station; the old station which is probably the landmark of Melbourne.

Boo-yeah, I love my city ;)

It is always comforting to know, when I have nothing, I will always have the city.

Chinese New Year VS St Kilda festival

Gong xi Gong xi
.. Happy Chinese New Year all!
Welcome to the year of the Rats =)

No special celebration this year and no angpao since I'm still stuck in Melbourne waiting for my TR (Temporary Residence) without my loved ones. Anyway here are some of the photos I took around the CBD/chinatown. From what I saw, there are lots of lion dance (barongsai) in every corner of CBD with only two dragons (which I think looks more like a worm than dragon, coz it was long but so thin) -_-" Sadly I couldn't get a snap due to people's head and my tiny (read: not tall enough) figures.

The lion dance

Little chinese drummer boys and girls

On the other side of the town there was another celebration. St Kilda Festival.
Nothing much to be said, just typical street festival; bunch of Aussies with so-called-cultural bands, dance, and food stalls. Eeek... no beer allowed

Hell yeah babe, it's alcohol free. Wondering why I still saw people 'drunk slash high' on the grass floor

Chips, hot dogs, and donuts. 'nuf said!

Strawberry + marshmallow on a stick dipped in chocolate. yummm. Orgasm? not really

..when the bright future is for you to create

"To often, the thing you want the most is the one thing you can't have
But as tough as wanting something can be
the people who suffer the most are those who don't know what they want"
(Greys Anatomy S3-E21)

This is the start of year 2008. Have you decide what to do with your life yet? For me, silly to say that I am still not sure. All I want is to get a job, either part time or full time. Even better if I can get my dream job as an engineer/scientist.
Finger crossed and wish me luck.

Victorian Beaches: St. Kilda, Geelong, and Wilson Prom.

The sun has been shining around 38 - 41 degrees hot this last few days on the edge of 2007. So what else to do other than pampering yourself at Victoria famous beaches.

First is the famous St. Kilda beach loacted only few kilometers away from the Melbourne CBD. Loaded with people getting tan around the beach and cafes full of yummy greek cakes.
(Forgot to take photos of the cafes. Doc'h!)

The second one is Geelong - the second biggest city in Victoria, located at 75 kilometers south-west of Melbourne. Geelong is known as a port city, which is a south-western inlet bay of Port Phillip.

The third one, which is the best of all is Wilson Promontory. It is located at the southernmost part of the Australian mainland. White-sand beaches. Naturally reserved. Beautiful river. A good place to fish, bush walking, or even stay the night on caravan or camping. What else can you ask more?

Squeaky beach - the sand makes a squeaky sound when people walk. Literally squeak-squeak =D

White sandy beach

For those of you who wanted a little getaway from the city, these are the three places you must go for summer. Don't forget to put on your sunblock, becoz the sunlight can burn your skin off (not really).

Anyway, I had a nice summer holiday. Envy me?
