Excerpt from 'The Notebook'

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever.
The Notebook

I got this line from a schoolmate's Facebook status. I guess it's true.
I have the DVD in my room but I've yet to watch it. Will watch it later (and then comment,maybe :P )

The week we went to Victoria Peak

The souvenir I bought from Ocean Park - there's an Ocean Park name stitched on it's bottom

Victoria Peak, freakin' cold. Brrr!

See how cold it is?

First and foremost, to Madame Tussauds!


Smooch smooch! Move away Angelina!


This is how they did the wax figure

No idea who he is but oh well!

Sape suruh masam muka?

Because marriages do not fail, people fail

Earlier in the week, I read that one of the bloggers whose blog I love to read has gotten herself hitched. And I just love hearing people getting hitched. The camaderie, the beauty, the purity, I love it all. Prior to her getting hitched, she posted a little somethin' in her blog, which I have gotten to love. Here goes : -

Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body…

Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,
Who won’t hold them against me,
Who loves me when I’m unlikable,
Who sees the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me…

Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold…

Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love in friendship…

Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements…

Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole…

Because, knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
I create me, I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together we create our marriage…

Because of this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.

by Mari Nichols-Haining ( via Juliana Ibrahim )

I personally like the line which I had coloured in pink, because they are so true. We can't say marriages fail, because they don't. It is really up to humans. And to me, as humans, something as pure as marriage is really something that you need to put your whole soul into because it signifies your promise to God that you are going to take care of each other, no matter what.

Hugs and kisses. Missing my sayang.

Love isn't always a lightning bolt, you know? Maybe sometimes it's just a choice.

2 days ago I watched a movie called 'Love and Other Disasters' starring Brittany Murphy. I didn't watch the whole movie 'cos I was initially channel-surfing and then watched the movie halfway through.

Basically it's about Brittany whose love principle is that she will only go to bed with the one that she does not love. Until she meets Paolo whom she agrees to get married to just to save him from being deported back to his own country. The ending to her story is pretty predictable but I love every quote that was thrown here and there in the movie. Oh ya, this movie also features love story between gays :P

Let me just jot down the few quotes/lines that I like from the movie :

Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: Stop trying to cast your love instead of just meeting him
Peter Simon: When I meet him, I'll know.
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: I'm not so sure. Love isn't always a lightning bolt, you know? Maybe sometimes it's just a choice.
Peter Simon: Well, that's easy for you to say! You're flying to Argentina to meet the love of your life!
Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: That's just it. I don't know that Paolo's the love of my life, but I've decided to give him the chance to be. Maybe true love is a decision. You know, a decision to take a chance with somebody. To give to somebody. Without worrying wether they'll give anything back. Or if they're gonna hurt you, or if they really are the one. Maybe love isn't something that happens to you. Maybe it's something you have to choose.

I like! Aye aye to more movies with MORE cool quotes!

At one point during the ride, I really felt like throwing up. Seasick maybe?
Ok, sempat posing.

Believe it or not, this is the first yummeh nasi campur dish we've had since our stay in HK

The tram, or 'ding-dings' as our locals call it

There you go. Those are some of the initial activities I did in HK. Love the experience, love the places. Will come back again for another trip (not for work, definitely). Actually I have updated photos but since now I'm using the lobby's PC to update this blog, I can't upload the photos as they're in my laptop. Hopefully the next time I come back, it will be with that special person :) Happiness is better shared, trust me :)
