I have launched a series of blog posts called Featured Mommypreneurs in collaboration with mommypreneurs (i.e. mommies entrepreneurs). Let me know if you're interested to join me to feature your products / services. :)

 

 

Thank You Lord for 2007

Two more days and we are going to say goodbye to 2007. It has been a bittersweet year for me and I don't think I've the mood to narrate everything.

I've to agree that both 2006 & 2007 had been eventful and traumatic yet were experiential years. I believe I grew up, psychologically. It seemed too good to be true that I could handle stress more than I think I could. My father's sudden death pushed me over my stress threshold.

It seemed so... (I couldn't think of a proper adjective) for me to receive news, congratulate, and attend weddings of my contemporaries... and yet I'm still... a-l-o-n-e.
So, I've a question. What about 2008 - the final year for my birthday to start with the number '2'? Do I still need to pass through yet another 'eventful' or rather, uneventful year?

Well, here are something to remind us of counting our blessing and thanking the Lord for 2007.

喜欢和爱的区别

人世间有种情感叫“喜欢”,另一种叫“


是他在的时候,眼睛里只有他一人;他不在的时候,一切都带有他的影子。喜欢是在深夜看书时突然想起他,想象他现在做什么,心里洋起一阵轻飘飘的温暖,却从不主动给他打电话。几分钟后,注意力又重新被书中的情节吸引!


是在寂寞的夜里,思念如潮水般涌来,手里捧着书却怎么也看不进去,心里惦记着他此时是否还在加班,吃晚饭没,是不是如自己想着他一般想着自己喜欢是和他讨论问题争的面红耳赤,各不相让,在他面前像个刺猬一样从不认输,但在心里却早已暗暗佩服他的见地他的才华。


是希望他和自己步调一致,和自己心灵相通,他无心说的一句玩笑话也能让自己情绪低落甚至眼泪汪汪。在他面前,自己是从不设防的。喜欢是出门在外给他发个短信,告诉他这边的天气很好,然后把手机关掉,独自在异地疯玩一个星期,晒成一个黑人后突然出现在他面前吓他一跳。


是无论到哪都希望有他陪伴。可以站在海边给他打手机,让他听听海浪的声音;也可以因为在异乡的街道上看到一个酷似他的背影而呆在原地久久不动。喜欢是他出差前简单的道一声“一路平安”,看着他离去的背影,心中有一点不舍,却什么也不说,只是默默等待他归来的消息


是他临出差前千叮咛万嘱咐,往他的背包里塞满衣服和食物,在车站要等到火车开走才肯离开。并且在他走后的日子里天天心神不定,一遍遍的祈祷他能够平安归来。喜欢是在受伤的时候,不想让他看到自己脆弱的一面,在他面前把眼泪悄悄抹掉,转过头依然是一副快乐坚强的模样。


是在受委屈的时候,爬在他的胸前痛哭,没有伪装没有顾虑,把所有的烦恼统统告诉他,并渴望从他的怀抱中得到安慰。喜欢是看到他和另一个女孩牵手走过,心里有一点点疼,但很快会冲着朝阳重新扬起笑脸。


是输不起的游戏,付出全部只后,留下的可能仅仅是刻在心底的一道伤痕喜欢一个人是想要他是自己的,所以,可以喜欢很多人,想要很多人都是自己的。


是明明离不开他,却要不得不放弃他,因为他要的幸福,也许我给不了。不敢霸占他,希望看他找到幸福,即使那份幸福不是跟我分享的。喜欢是,希望寂寞的时候,无聊的时候,伤感的时候,找个人说说话。


是,在任何时候都想跟他分享,快乐的时候甚至希望把所有快乐都给了他。喜欢,只有在一起的时候,才惦记着对方。


是,在几天没有联络的时候,着急得的打电话给他,然后忍住眼泪笑一笑。喜欢是,在很久很久没联络的时候,接到他的电话,然后笑着听他说话。


,是哪怕是在一起,每一秒钟也都在思念思念他。喜欢一个人,在一起的时候永远是欢乐


一个人,在一起的时候,会莫名的失落 喜欢一个人,在一起的时候会很开心


一个人,你会常常流泪喜欢一个人,是看到了他的优点


一个人,当你想起他,你会对着天空发呆喜欢一个人,当你想起他,你会微微一笑


一个人,你期望的是永远 喜欢一个人,你要得只是今天


一个人,是包容了他的缺点。当你不想再爱一个人你要闭上眼睛并忍着泪水当你不想再喜欢一个人你只要掩住双耳!


喜欢,是一种心情,是一种感情


喜欢,是一种直觉,是一种感觉


喜欢,可以停止,没有休止


喜欢一个人,特别自然一个人,特别坦然


喜欢一个人,有时候盼和他在一起一个人,有时候怕和他在一起


喜欢一个人,不停的和他争执一个人,不停的为他付出


喜欢一个人,希望他可以随时找到自己一个人,希望可以随时找到他


喜欢你,却不一定爱你你,就一定很喜欢你


从喜欢到爱

妻子、情人、红颜知己的差别

什么是妻子?就是你愿意把积蓄交给她保管的女人。

什么是情人?就是你偷偷摸摸地去和她约会又怕妻子撞见的女人。

什么是红颜知己?就是你能把有些秘密说给她听却不能说给妻子听的女人。

妻子是一种约束,约束你不能随便和别的女人交往 ; 情人是一种补偿,补偿你想从妻子那得到却又无法得到的激情 ; 红颜知己就是一种点拨,点拨你心中的迷津。

妻子陪你过日子,情人陪你花钞票,红颜知己陪你聊聊天。 妻子不能替代情人因为她没有情人有情调 ; 情人不能代替妻子因为她没有妻子的亲情 ; 妻子和情人都代替不了红颜知己,那是心灵的需要。

妻子是一个和你没有一点血缘关系的女人,却为你深夜不回家而牵肠挂肚 ; 情人是一个和你没有一点家庭关系的女人,却让你尝尽做男人滋味尽情消魂 ; 红颜知己是一个还没和你扯上关系的女人,却能分担你的快乐和忧愁。

妻子是一个家,是一个能给你浮躁的心带来安抚的港湾 ; 情人是家的累赘,只是不到万不得已你不想甩掉 ; 红颜知己是家的点缀,没有她你不会觉得寂寞,但你会觉得生活没意思。

妻子的关心像一杯白开水,有时会成为一种唠叨,只是在生病时才成为一种温馨 ; 情人的关心就像在白开水里加了一勺糖,慢慢地品上一个晚上还不满足 ; 红颜知己的关心就像工作到午夜喝一杯咖啡,越喝越提神。

妻子怀上你的孩子会深情地问你想要个男孩还是要个女孩,情人怀上你的孩子会哭着来问你该怎么办怎么办啊?对于红颜知己,你会把你的情人怀孕的消息告诉她 ,并问她你该怎么办。 至于妻子,你会在她发现你的情人肚子大了的秘密后才告诉她 : “其实,我早就想告诉你了。” 然后拼命地向她解释,并作可怜状。

妻子回了娘家一个星期不回来你也不想,情人三天不见你就给她打电话 : 上哪去了?今晚我们到老地方喝杯咖啡好吗?心中有了苦闷,你最想找个红颜知己倾诉,告诉她你在妻子和情人之间疲于奔命,实在受不了了。

最让男人受不了的是妻子的唠叨,情人的眼泪,红颜知己的误解。 妻子的唠叨使男人的心乱上加乱 ,情人的眼泪让男人已硬的心变得酥软,红颜知己的误解把男人的心由悬崖推进深谷。

最好的妻子,就是男人能从她身上找到情人和红颜知己两种相互交织的感觉,只是这种感觉男人很难找到。 最好的情人是在你和她的关系被妻子发现而主动退出又不提任何要求,只是情人很难做到这点。 最好的红颜知己是有一天她能成为情人,甚至妻子,只是这种想法很难实现。

如果有可能,男人都在想把红颜知己变成情人,如果再有可能,再把她变成妻子。 只是变成妻子的红颜知己就不再是知己了,因为很少有男人把自己的妻子当成知己的。 男人心中有好多秘密不能随便说给妻子听。 要不,那还叫男人么?

娶一个妻子是为了怕别人说闲话,找一个情人是为了给单调的生活加点味精,交一个红颜知己是想给空虚的心灵浇点鸡汤。 男人一生都在寻找的不是一个妻子,也不是一个情人,而是一个甚至更多的红颜知己。

有些失去是注定的,有些缘分是永远不会有结果的。

爱一个人不一定要拥有,但拥有了一个人就一定要珍惜 ; 不要等到伤害的时候才去乞求原谅,不要等到失去的时候再去挽回。

如果我不小心流下一滴泪水,那是因为我不愿意忘记你是谁。

The ripples that you create might cause a huge wave that swallows you later.

Career: Try to keep a low profile. Do not get demoralized when there are lack of opportunities and many restrictions that impede progress in your career. Important to remain.

Career: Your career luck is very good. A good time to shine at work. You will get support from your authority figures such as your boss or the management.

There tends to be sudden incidents that may cause problems. You do not want to be caught off guard by it.

Wealth: A good year in terms of wealth. If you are investing, choose something that will grow steadily. If you are in business, allow your business to grow gradually. Do not rush into things.

2008 (Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit)

Year 2008: Year of the Rat

General: Great time for you to transform your dreams into reality - to pursue the dream job, position, salary, business, etc. Do not feel that your dreams are out of reach as you will get the support, meet the right people, and find the appropriate resources that can bring you to your goal. Keep your heart and mind open. There will be more disputes, arguments, betrayals and misunderstandings than usual. Try to be humble, keep yourself calm and objective at all times. Things will turn out well. Avoid being too stressed out. Watch out for being hospitalized and having surgery and being involved in accidents.

Career: Promotions, pay rises, and more power is in store. If you have plans that you would like to implement, do so. You will get the support from authority figures and relevant people. If you have been thinking of starting a business, this is a good time to do so. On the career front, there will be more disputes and arguments. Many may not be able to see eye to eye with you or may not be able to understand the way you handle situations. Remember to be more patient with others. Try to spend some more time in explaining and convincing rather then bulldozing your way through.

Wealth: Very good for both your main sources and side sources of wealth.

Relationship: For those who are attached or married, there are more tensions in relationships; frequency of disputes, cold wars or misunderstandings is higher than usual. Keep communication channels open and be more patient with each other despite the high levels of stress that you may be going through. For those who are single, the chances of meeting the right person or falling in love is rather slim. Your abrupt behavior or unpredictable temper could push away your suitors. Try to stabilize your temper and observe yourself through a third party's eyes.

Health: While you are busy reaping the best out of this year, remember to have adequate rest. There is a high tendency of having illnesses such as the flu and other illnesses that are related to anxiety such as headaches and gastric problems. There are also signs of being hospitalized and involved in accidents.

People: There are a lot of arguments, betrayals and misunderstandings. Avoid getting into head on conflicts with others. If you feel that someone is testing your patience or trying to antagonize you, show the person how gracious you are by being patient and smiling it off.

General: You have a premium ticket especially for males. For females, you would gain more benefits if you could get assistance and support from males. In general, you will do very well in terms of career and wealth. If you have any plans, personally or professionally, put them into action. Despite your success in career and making more money, you will still feel a strong sense of insecurity and emptiness within, and tend to be moody and depressed. Your moodiness will affect your emotions, relationships, wealth, and health. This may lead you to indulge in activities in order to escape from the truth. The deeper you try to bury the issues, they will come back to haunt you. Why not take the opportunity of being in such a good year to work on these issues?

Career: Chances of promotions. Your bosses and authority figures will give you ample opportunities to shine. You are going to exceed their expectations, be given more trust and responsibilities, and signs of salary increases. If you are in business, consider expanding your business, increase your market share and grow your revenue.

Wealth: Very good for both your main sources and side sources of wealth but you might overspend. Whether your money will be able to grow exponentially depends heavily on whether you can save this year.

Relationship: For those who are married or attached, it will be a rocky year, mainly due to insecurities and moodiness. Relationships tend to grow weak and brittle when one party is always not in a good mood. Gossip or devious third parties could easily worsen the situation. Communicate clearly as to how you feel to your partner. If you are unhappy and it has nothing to do with your partner, let your partner know. For those who are single, the chance of getting attached is slim due to your emotional instability. Before you can attract the love of your life, you need to stabilize your emotions first.

Health: Health is average in general. Do not indulge in activities that might harm your health such as drinking and eating excessively.

People: Average. Do not need to worry about back-stabbings and betrayals.

General: Very busy and will always be on the move: traveling, signs of moving house, migration or relocation. How well this year could be for you will depend heavily on yourself because there are not many lucky stars shining on you to provide the conveniences that you might need. However, there are not many obstacles. You will still do very well if you have been giving your best in terms of your career and financial management. You may feel especially emotionally detached this year and would like to have more personal space. This certainly will affect your relationships. The area that deserves your special attention is in the area of health and safety. There is a higher chance of falling ill or being involved in an accident or being hospitalized and having surgery this year. Take good care of your health and have adequate rest. If you have elderly people at home, be careful of their health and safety too.

Career: Able to perform well if your job or business requires traveling or moving around. You will also be able to do well if you are in sales or you earn on a commission basis. Even though you may have a very tight schedule, do not make impulsive judgments because there are great opportunities. Do not allow your lack of time to be an excuse to deny yourself of opportunities and benefits that are coming your way. While you remain open and receptive to success and prosperity, do your own homework and use your wisdom. Do not rely too much on others.

Wealth: Highly dependent on whether have you been sowing the seeds and utilizing the opportunities that are presented to you. If you have been doing your homework well, rest assured that your wealth luck is favorable.

Relationship: It will be a quiet year for singles. For those who are attached or married, you may spend less time with your partner due to your busy schedule, or you may go into cold wars frequently, or you may even feel emotionally detached from the relationship. There are even signs of a breakup. Challenging year for relationships.

Health: Higher tendency of falling ill this year. Be careful of safety too. For those who have elderly people at home, be cautious of their health and safety too.

People: Do not need to worry about people problems this year.

General: More obstacles, restrictions, and sudden challenges that impede the progress of your desires. Your concentration is weaker and your attention span is shorter than usual, and a strong tendency to overlook details or being forgetful. Therefore, it is important not to make impulsive decisions. If a decision is required, try to give it more time to think it through or request someone who you can trust to go through the details with you. However, your popularity is running high. Good time to build rapport, meet new people, those who could help you, socialize, and be in a team. While you are the star of the town, there are some green eyes casting unfriendly glances at you.

Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is another movie not to be missed.

First,
JOHNNY DEPP is Sweeney Todd! After watching the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, I've always regard that Johnny Depp is a great actor. Second, it's a horror/crime/thriller/musical movie. Third, great story. Based on a myth? I've no idea.

Tagline: Never Forget, Never Forgive

Watch the trailer.

His voice was soft, his manner mild,
He seldom laughed but he often smiled,
He'd seen how civilized men behave,
He never forgot and he never forgave,
Not Sweeney,
Not Sweeney Todd,
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street...

"The Ballad of Sweeney Todd" by Stephen Sondheim.

Release Date: 24 January 2008

Trip to Taman Negara (Day 3: 22 Dec 2007)

Time to go home.

We took a 2-hour boat cruise downstream of Sungai Tembeling from Kuala Tahan to Kuala Tembeling Jetty before heading back to Jerantut by bus (the same bus).

At Jerantut, each one of us received a certificate from the tour agency, indicating that we've successfully joined their adventure package to Taman Negara, the world's oldest, 135 million year-old rainforest, located in the state of Pahang Darul Makmur, Malaysia on the 20th - 22nd December 2007.

Ooh...

May be I could suggest a team-building session at Taman Negara to my manager.

Trip to Taman Negara (Day 2: 21 Dec 2007)

Nice weather. In the mood for more FUN!

We have our breakfast at this departure point (the floating restaurant that I've mentioned earlier).

Then, off we go for more inner jungle adventure!

Morning: The
Canopy Walkway is a must-go.


Errr... At first, it was very scary. The bridge would sway gently and I could feel butterflies in my stomach. This Canopy Walkway is proudly known as the World's Longest Hanging Bridge!

After completing the walkway, they all went to hike
Teresek Hill to view the scenic Tahan Mountain. Well, I've had the scariest moments of my life, so I headed back to our lodging to rest. Yeah, sounds so lame...

Afternoon: Orang Asli settlement
We visited one of the orang asli (Batek tribe) settlements along Sungai Tembeling. According to our tour guide, these orang asli originated from Africa. No wonder they have the Afro-like "bombastic" hair. The orang asli chief was quite friendly. He and some of his villagers demonstrated on how to make blowpipe darts, how to start a fire, and how to use a blowpipe.

Photo taken from Travel NST.

The man in the photo above looks exactly like the friendly chief who demonstrated their skills to our group. I wonder if he knows that his photo is everywhere on the Internet.

Evening: Rapids shooting
The initial information: Boat journey to shoot 7 major rapids towards Sungai Trenggan and BE PREPARED TO GET WET. I've no idea how the whole activity would be. It turned out that this was the most exciting activities of all!

All of us boarded 3 boats with skillful boatmen and playful tour guides. The young guides were splashing us with river water as our boats raced against each other and tried to splash the most water at one another. We were soaked to the uttermost but it was very, very exciting! Can't really take photos or one might say goodbye to the camera. Haha...

These are the type of boats we used for rapids shooting.

Trip to Taman Negara (Day 1: 20 Dec 2007)

Approximately two weeks before we departed to Taman Negara in Pahang, news about flood and landslides were all over Malaysia. I wondered, "Will this trip be a success? What if it rains? What if we are caught in a landslide while we are trekking through the jungle?"

Haha... Nope.

We departed from Petaling Jaya around 8:30am by bus (arranged by the agency through which we booked the whole trip package) to Jerantut, Pahang and reached at 11:30am. Not much to be done in Jerantut. After lunch, we departed to Kuala Tahan at 1pm. Around 1:45pm, we reached one of those floating restaurants at Kuala Tahan. Then, we juggled our way down sandy riverbank and hopped onto boats to go across the river (Sungai Tembeling) to our lodging (Mutiara Taman Negara - National Park Resort).


Yeah... We didn't camp. We stayed in "dorms" since there were 35 of us, including kids.

The adventure has just begun...

Our first "task": Jungle trekking and Ear Cave exploration. Here are the keywords; the rest, I leave to you to imagine.

Keywords: Raining (yes, it was raining!), muddy, slippery, leeches, tiring, soaking wet, very cold... but rewarding! Well, I waited for them outside the cave, I didn't go in. Now I realize I need more physical exercises to boost my stamina and to overcome my fear of all physical activities. Haha...


Those who went into the cave saw bats hanging from the ceiling. Oww... Look at those sinister-looking creatures.

By the time they came out from the cave, the rain was getting heavier and heavier. The trails were getting muddier than before. I've to push myself to the limit. No matter how I feel, I gotta get out of the jungle and I did. I seldom take the risk to do things that I DON'T LIKE. This time, I guessed I did the contrary.

We were dripping with mud, sweat, and rain water. Some were targeted by leeches and came back with blood trickling down their legs. So, it was time to clean up the mess. We took a long time to shower, wash our mud-soaked clothes and sports shoes.

Guess what? Since we were in contact with the nature, we could see wild boars, monkeys, and monitor lizards. We didn't see them all the time but when they appeared, we were excited.


Note: Got this photo from the website.

Here's the wild boar that loved to "visit" us and made lots of noise and mess. Some of us took quite a number of photos of this gentle beast. I've no idea how could it be so "friendly" but we still kept our distance, in case it charged at us out of a sudden.

Before it's too late...

All the "Ifs"...

If you're mad with someone and nobody's there to fix the situation, you fix it.
May be today, that person still wants to be your friend. If you don't, tomorrow can be too late.

If you're in love with somebody but that person doesn't know, tell her/him.
May be today, that person is also in love with you. If you don't say it, tomorrow can be too late.

If you still love a person that you think has forgotten you, tell her/him.
May be that person has always loved you. If you don't tell her/him today, tomorrow can be too late.

If you need a hug of a friend, ask her/him for it.
May be she/he needs it more than you do. If you don't ask for it today, tomorrow can be too late.

If you really have friends whom you appreciate, tell them.
May be they appreciate you as well. If you don't and they leave or go far away today, tomorrow can be too late.

If you love your parents and never had the chance to show them, do it.
May be you have them there to show them how you feel. If you don't and they leave today, then tomorrow can be too late.

Sharing is caring...

人和人的相處

友谊的幸福之一

从前,有一个脾气很坏的男孩.他的爸爸给了他一袋钉子,告诉他,每次发脾气或者跟人吵架的时候,就在院子的篱笆上钉一根。第一天,男孩钉了37根钉子。后面的几天他学会了控制自己的脾气,每天钉的钉子也逐渐减少了。他发现,控制自己的脾气,实际上比钉钉子要容易的多。终于有一天,他一根钉子都没有钉,他高兴的把这件事告诉了爸爸。

爸爸说:「从今以后,如果你一天都没有发脾气,就可以在这天拔掉一根钉子。」

日子一天一天过去,最后,钉子全被拔光了。爸爸带他来到篱笆边上,对他说:「儿子,你做得很好,可是看看篱笆上的钉子洞,这些洞永远也不可能恢复了。就象你和一个人吵架,说了些难听的话,你就在他心里留下了一个伤口,像这个钉子洞一样。插一把刀子在一个人的身体里,再拔出来,伤口就难以愈合了。无论你怎么道歉,伤口总是在那儿。要知道,身体上的伤口和心灵上的伤口一样都难以恢复。你的朋友是你宝贵的财产,他们让你开怀,让你更勇敢。他们总是随时倾听你的忧伤。你需要他们的时候,他们会支持你,向你敞开心扉。」

告诉你的朋友你多么爱他们,告诉所有你认为是朋友的人。友谊的幸福之一,是知道了可以向谁倾吐秘密。永远不要嘲笑别人的梦想。不要随便给一个人定性。说话时要慢,思想时要快。打电话的时候请你微笑,对方一定感觉得到。

人和人相處何必想的那麼複雜
...


A和B是同學,
念書時感情好得不得了,畢業後兩人分別創業結婚。A的生意愈做愈大,最飛黃騰達的時候,公司裡有上百名員工。A每天忙得不得了,漸漸和老朋友就不連絡了。偶爾B想打電話問候他,總是秘書接的,B也就不打了,關於他的近況都是從朋友那裡輾轉聽說的。

景氣不好,B的公司規模不大,但是穩扎穩打的作風,生意並未受到太多影響。A的情況就不同了,飛黃騰達之後,A養成了好大喜功的習慣,公司表面看起風光,其實有不少資金是向銀行貸款來的,幾次周轉不靈,廠商不願繼續通融,員工的薪水也好幾個月無法準時發放,終於撐不下去,公司倒了不說,還背千萬的債務。

有一天,B去拜訪客戶,在街上遇到A,A看起來神情疲憊。B已經聽說老朋友的事,他熱情拉A一起吃午飯.開著車來到學校附近,在巷子裡一家不起眼的小店,B點了兩碗蚵仔麵線,還有滷豆腐和燙青菜。A沒有想到B說請他吃飯,竟然如此寒酸,難道是見他落魄了,懶得應酬他,還是怕他會開口借錢,乾脆先裝窮,A的心裡十分不舒服。

麵線送上來了,B 說,「你記得嗎?十年前我們在這裡念書時,你喜歡吃這家的蚵仔麵線,說他們的大腸處理得好,蚵仔也新鮮。那時候我們沒錢,只能吃麵線,連個小菜都覺得奢侈,我想你大概很久沒吃蚵仔麵線了,我倒是常來這裡吃,也回味一下年輕時

A不懂B究竟是什麼意思,不過,A也想起來以前確實很喜歡吃這家的蚵仔麵線,為什麼畢業後再也沒來吃過,沒想到這家小店還開著,而且麵線還是很好吃,滋味完全不輸魚翅呢。B看A吃出了滋味,便對A 說,「我的公司小,不能和你闖下的局面比,但時機不好,如果你不嫌棄,就先來和我一起做吧,將來有適當的機會,你想要另起爐灶也行,或是我們哥兒倆就合作下去,都行。」

A沒想到B會如此爽快伸出援手,A的眼淚在眼眶裡打轉,將近十年沒連絡,B的情誼一點沒變,就像蚵仔麵線的滋味。A為了掩飾自己的情感,故意捧起碗大口喝湯,放下碗時,他說,「謝謝你,帶我來吃蚵仔麵線,我以為很多事都變了,原來還有長久不變的滋味。
有時候我們覺得別人變了, 其實是自己變了。」

Awesome: I Am Legend

Interview: Will Smith on Dogs, Children, and I Am Legend

It's amazing to compare the real-life Will Smith with his on-screen persona of Robert Neville. Walking in the door of the I Am Legend press conference, Smith radiates a sense of both playful youth and a very adult sense of being a father and someone committed to his ideals. It's not hard to understand why Smith's charisma is box office gold. Who doesn't like this guy? Smith spoke about Legend, shooting in New York, working alongside his daughter, falling in love with his co-star, a German Shepherd named Abbey, and about some of the ideals he hopes the film can communicate.

The largest production in the history of New York, Smith didn't exactly make friends with local commuters: "We shut down six blocks of Fifth Avenue on a Monday morning. That was probably poor logistics," he laughs. "Percentage-wise, I would say it's the most amount of middle fingers I've ever received. I was starting to think that f*** was my name."


Still, the barren streets achieved a stark realism that comes through in the final product: "When we were doing it, it was chilling to walk down the middle of Fifth Avenue. There's never an opportunity to walk down the middle of Fifth Avenue. Two o'clock in the morning on a Sunday, you can't walk down the middle of Fifth Avenue. It created just such a creepy energy. It just puts such an icky, eerie kind of feeling on the movie."


On the idea of the last man on Earth being African American, Smith talked about how he thinks labels like that diminish the impact: "It's almost a metaphysical idea for me. I rarely think about that until someone brings it up... For me, the acknowledgment of those kinds of ideas put a weird boundary on my thoughts that I can't allow to be a part of it because it makes me think smaller."


Embracing the character of Neville, Smith worked with POWs and people who had been in solitary confinement to get an understanding of what happens to a man divorced from human contact: "It was such a wonderful exploration of myself," he says, "because what happens is you get in a situation where you don't have people to create the stimulus for you respond to. You start to create the stimulus and the response. So there's a connection with yourself that where your mind starts to drift to in those types of situations where you learn things about yourself that you would never even imagine."


Working directly with former Black Panther Geronimo il-Jaga, held for 27 years in prison and over three months in solitary, Smith talked about what the experience brought to his character:
"[He] said, the first thing is a schedule. That you will not survive in solitary confinement if you don't schedule everything.You plan things like cleaning your nails and you'll take two hours that you have to because it's on the schedule that you have to just clean your nails. He said that he spent about six weeks and he trained roaches to bring him food. The idea of where your mind goes to defend itself! Either he really did train the roaches - which is huge - or his mind needed that survive. Either way, you put that on camera and it's genius. For me the thing was to get into the mental space where what the truth was for Robert Neville didn't matter. The only thing that mattered is what he saw and what he believed."

The mental state of Neville, Smith hopes, is something that everyone in the world can relate to one level or another: "With movies, I'm really connecting to the Joseph Campbell idea of the collective unconscious. There are things that we all dream. There are things that each one of us has thought that connect to life, death, sex. There are things that are beyond language. To me, this is one of those concepts. That you've been on the freeway many times and you wished
everybody was dead. There have been times when you've just wished you were by yourself. You don't need any of these assholes. You just want to be by yourself. That separation from people - that being ripped away from people - that being separated, connected with the dark and unknown of the dark. How we would fare against whatever is in that realm of the unknown is a really primal idea. I loved this concept because it connected to ideas that a four year old can understand."

Smith also spoke briefly about his own personal religious belief and how, like thought, they tie to an inner self: "I don't necessarily believe in organized religion. I was raised in a Baptist household, went to a Catholic church, lived in a Jewish neighborhood and had the biggest crush on the Muslim girl from one neighborhood over. I believe that my connection to my higher power is separate from, everybody. I don't believe that Muslims have all the answers and I
don't believe that Christians have all the answers or Jews . I love my God - my higher power - but it's mine and mine alone. I create my connection and I decide how my connection is going to be."

Smith's on-screen daughter is played by his real-life daughter, Willow: "You kind of don't work with Willow," he jokes, "You work for Willow. She just wants it. She has a drive and she has an
energy and she just connects to human emotion."

Smith's co-star for much of the film is Sam, a German shepherd whose real name is Abbey: "When I was nine," says Smith, "I had a dog, Trixie, a white golden retriever who got hit by a car. So I refused - no animals. Jada can have the animals she wants. The kids can have the dogs they want. I am not putting myself emotionally connected to a dog anymore. And then Steve brought that damn Abbey on the set. You say a "smart dog". It got to the point with Abbey where she'd be playing, playing, playing and she'd hear "rolling!" and she'd run over to her
mark and get ready. She would know when I wasn't doing my lines right. It was the first time I allowed myself to be fond of a dog since that experience and I was like - to the owner, Steve, 'Steve, please. Abbey has to live with me. Please!' And he was like, 'Well, this is how I make my living, man.' 'Tell me what you need! [I said] A house in the hills?'"

I wonder how... I wonder why...

Lately... I think I saw a flicker of hope in my "mundane" life. I'm breathless as I tried to encapsulate every single detail. Haha...

My best pal's back to Malaysia and I'm gonna conduct long hours of chatting with her soon. We've even planned to have a cooking-baking session together! Her husband would have to bear with us. Haha... I'm very close to this pal as we've passed through our years in the university, Christian training, and full-time service (church) together before she is married to her husband.

Not only so, some of my colleagues (non-Christian) are getting together for a short gospel gathering and refreshment at a colleague's home (he's a Christian). I treat this as a very special occasion. We sow the seeds and someday, I believe they will be harvested when the time arrives. I'm not doing anything extraordinary. It's the living that matters. I'm a Christian and as a Christian, I believe our testimony is we are in the world, but not of the world.

Another pal's getting married next year in Singapore and I'll definitely take one-day leave to attend her wedding meeting, no matter what happens. I'm so happy for her!

All these seem to be ordinary, but I'm taking chances to savor the goodness of every moment spent with my friends. We never know what might come next in our life...
