At times, it is better to be ignorance. Practice the art of selective listening and reading. There will surely be people out there purposely wanting to disrupt the peaceful life we lead..
well, ignore them, treat their words and actions with a sensor sieving out the badies and listening to the goodies.. we will get peace of mind..no more “arkhu toe” Yeh!
So..what to do, but practice practice and more practice on the ART of Ignorance!

30 May (Fri) – Hong Kong Nocturne (香江花月夜)
In this raucous and dazzling musical directed by one of Shaw Brothers’ most distinctive filmmakers, three beautiful sisters play out their trials and tribulations in the entertainment business. Dir: Inoue Umetsugu. 1967. Hong Kong. 128 mins. PG. Hsi Chang, Paul Chang, Hsin Yen Chao, Kang-Yeh Cheng. In Mandarin with English subtitles.
31 May (Sat) – Come Drink With Me (大醉俠;)
Posing as the errant knight Golden Swallow, Xiyan (Cheng) sets out to rescue her brother, an official held hostage by the Five Tiger Gang; she is aided, at first obliquely, by the beggar Drunken Cat (Yueh), who leads a rag-tag troupe of kids (great haircuts!) who sing for small change. He is actually Fan Dabei, a ‘drunken master’ in retreat since the murder of his teacher, and the plot shift occurs when he realises that the gang’s mastermind is the traitor who did the foul deed.

The following is a short story which was forwarded from a Friend..sure is funny..the way the student try to explain logically for something which seem unexplanable..:P
~ Thermodynamics of Hell ~
The following is one of Dr. Schalmbaugh's Final Test questions for May 1997. (Dr. Schalmbaugh, University of Oklahoma School of Chemical Engineering is known for asking questions such as this on his final exams.)
May 1997, Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer II Final Exam Question:
"Is hell exothermic or endothermic? Support your answer with truth.''
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:
"First, we postulate that if souls exist, then they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving?
I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for souls entering hell, lets look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and all souls go to hell.
With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change in volume in hell. Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant.
Case 1: If hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter hell, then the temperature and pressure in hell will increase until all hell breaks loose.
Case 2: If hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until hell freezes over.
So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Theresa Banyan during my freshman year, "it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you" and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then case 2 cannot be true.
Thus, hell is exothermic."
The student, Tim Graham, got the only A.

Someone or that particular community whose believe is so extreme and whose thirst for power and control is so immense that he/they will sacrifice anything and do anything, not allowing any obstacles on the ladder to success and achievement of yet more authority and power. Perhaps he who is more vindictive than Hitler, manages to “employ” (or rather refuse to issue warnings) natural disaster to create a massacre. A massive loss of lives ranging from young, old or even monks. The ugly truth is slowly unveiling and with each precious moment, things are getting from bad to worse.

Mother’s day fall on second Sunday of the month May.
I like the month May and I usually associate it with mothers. Coincidently, in Burmese, mothers are termed as “may may”. In fact the two red letter occasions that is associated with my mothers fall on this month. One is the day to celebrate and take gratitude of our mothers and another is her birthday..
I am sorry for all the anger, frustrations, unhappiness, misery, tears and pain I have caused you.. Even if you are the source of my headache at times, no matter what I still love you..
Coz you are one of the two people who will stand by me no matter what I do, what I say or how I treat you..

all of us can’t be captains, some have to be crew.
all of us can’t be main leads, some have to play supporting roles.
all of us can't be leaders, some have to be followers.
all of us can't be bosses, some have to be subordinates.
Actually there is always something for all of us to do.
If you can’t be the sun, be a star.
If you can’t be the initiator, be a motivator.
If you can’t be the pivot factor, be the reliable factor.
It isn’t by size or sheer amount of quantity that you win or you fail.
The difference lies in just being the best at whatever you are.
Giving whatever you can afford to..

It sure is funny isn't it'?
... when one is busy and pressed for time,time simply chooses to slip by..when one is moody and literally wishing for it to go..time chooses to stay put.. even a passing of minute seems longer than usualy..
ek.let me see..its 4pm now..
tat would be almost 2 hours, 2x60=120min, 120x60=7200 sec to go before we can knock off..
so..Just a tiny weeny bits more to weekend..to friday..let's press on....
Sometimes we must experience in order to learn
Sometimes we must learn in order to grow
Sometimes we must try in order to know
Sometimes we must fail in order to gain
Sometimes we must lose in order to value
Sometimes we must try in order to know
But the hardest lessons are learned through PAIN!!

The AfterMath of CYCLONE NARGIS:
It came fast and left in a hurry as well, leaving behind a trail of thousands of dead, many homless, much destructions and waves of diseases. It took away not just the homes of the poors but the livelihood of them. The CYCLONE NARGIS has brought so much damage to the already half-battered and struggling Myanmar.
For those away in a foreign land, I am sure one can’t help but feel helpless even if there is a chance to donate either monetary or tangible things. Since such is the case, all we can do for now is to pray and hope for more help to assist these victims.

May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes.
May all sentient beings be free from suffering and its causes.
May all sentient beings never be separated from sorrowless bliss.
May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free of bias, attachment, and anger.
