Two Is Better Than One



Two Is Better Than One

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought hey
You know this could be something

'Cause everything you do and words you say
You know that it all takes my breath away
And now I'm left with nothing

So maybe it's true, that I can't live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there's so much time, to figure out the rest of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two is better than one

I remember every look upon your face
The way you roll your eyes, the way you taste
You make it hard for breathing

'Cause when I close my eyes and drift away
I think of you and everything's okay
I'm finally now believing

And maybe it's true, that I can't live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there's so much time, to figure out the rest of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two is better than one

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life
And I thought hey

Maybe it's true, that I can't live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there's so much time, to figure out the rest of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking

Oooh I can't live without you
'Cause baby two is better than one
There's so much time, to figure out the rest of my life
And I've figured out with all that's said and done
Two is better than one
Two is better than one

This is a really meaningful song. I love it. :)

Movie: Haunted Universities (2009)

Haunted Universities is another 2009 Thai horror movie. That's pretty clear, judging from the movie's title and poster. :)

In recent years, especially 2009, Thai filmmakers have the tendency to utilize the technique of shooting a few mini-movies in one movie. Examples: Phobia 1 or 4bia and Phobia 2.

In 4bia & Phobia 2, the mini-movies are not interrelated. In Haunted Universities, the individual storyline isn't interrelated as well but a few of the characters will appear here and there throughout the movie.

There are altogether 4 stories in Haunted Universities. Bear in mind, this movie isn't just about hauntings in universities. Rather, it includes elements related to universities, e.g. students, school compounds, urban legends, murders, etc.

Overall, as the movie rolls on, you might get startled once in a while. You might also laugh at certain comical characters and even during laughable moments. You might also feel pitiful for some victims in the movie. There are a few eye candies, I mean the actresses, not the ghosts. :)

However, in the end, how would I rate this movie? Well, I'd say it's slightly below average. Watch it on DVD if you wish to. :)

不要错放了幸福温暖的手

往往许多人在抉择伴侣时,容易东想西想,不知所措,就是因为害怕一时做错决定,看错人,造成终生的遗憾。

诺贝尔文学奖得主萧伯纳说:此时此刻在地球上,约有两万个人适合当你的人生伴侣,就看你先遇到哪一个。

如果在第二个理想伴侣出现之前,你已经跟前一个人发展出相知相惜、互相信赖的深层关系,那后者就会变成你的好朋友。但是若你跟前一个人没有培养出深层关系,感情就容易动摇、变心,直到你与这些理想伴侣候选人的其中一位拥有稳固的深情,才是幸福的开始,漂泊的结束。

爱上一个人不需要靠努力,只需要 靠“际遇”,是上天的安排,但是“持续地爱一个人”就要靠“努力”,在爱情的经营中,顺畅运转的要素就是沟通、体谅、包容与自制 (面临诱惑有所自制)。

有许多人总是被 “际遇”所迷惑与苦恼,意念不停、欲念不断、争逐不散,而忘了培养经营感情的能力才是幸福的关键。

所以不要去追问到底谁才是我的Mr. Right,而是问说在眼前的伴侣关系中,我能努力到什么程度、成长到什么程度。若没有培养出经营幸福的能力,就算真的Mr. Right出 现在你身边,幸福依然会错过的,而活在犹疑与遗憾当中,这不就是许多“爱情虚无症”的遭遇与心态吗?

若你此刻已有一位长久相伴的伴 侣,不要再随便三心二意地犹疑了,我们往往不易察觉感情中的一个陷阱,就是“近亲生慢侮”,也就是经济学中的铁律“边际效益递减法则”,跟你在一起越久的人,就越容易麻木与忽视,而新鲜的“际遇”总是那么动人可爱。

萧伯纳的话,是要提醒情人不要太钻牛角尖于寻觅那唯一,应该把精神用在学会经营幸福的能力上, 同时也提醒我们“弱水三千只取一瓢饮”。

若有幸遇到了难得的伴侣,就不要再三心二意了, 因为我们永远不知道一生何时会遇 到两万个其中的几个,所以要知福惜福、活在当下。

Movie: Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009)

Meet Darren. He's sixteen going on immortal

"Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" is an interesting movie, adapted from the first three books of "The Saga of Darren Shan" by Darren Shan. I haven't read the books, so I've no preconception about this movie.

Strictly speaking, this is a movie that appeals to young adults. This is my view concerning movies with vampires or zombies or any of the undead beings as the theme. Another example is the Twilight series. The lead stars are young adults anyway. :)

Okay. Now let's come back to this movie. Cirque du Freak, led by ringleader Mr. Tall, is a troupe of people with abnomalities, or in short, circus freaks. They stay and travel together while making a living out of live, freaky performances.

The zest of the movie is actually the relationship triangle between Darren, his envious friend Steve, and Darren's mentor, Larten Crepsley, the Vampire who "forced" Darren into becoming a Vampire in order to save Steve's life from the venomous bite of Madame Octa (Crepsley's spider).

Mr. Tiny, the so-called "neutral" villain in the movie is plotting to trigger a war, which was already brewing between Larten's camp of docile Vampires and the devilish Vampaneze for centuries. Did he succeed? It's up to Darren and Steve to pull the final trigger.

So, is this a recommended movie? I'd say it's a recommendable entertaining movie - neither morbid nor gory, which is a relief to me. John C. Reilly as Larten Crepsley gave me a good impression and an uplifted understanding about Vampires. Is this good? Well, maybe. :)

Movie: Ju-on: White Ghost & Black Ghost (2010)

Everybody knows who or what Ju-on is. IMHO, Ju-on is one of the most reputable horror movie ever filmed in the Japanese horror movie industry. Even the Americans produced remakes of "Ju-on" with the title "The Grudge" - the meaning of ju-on.

Some of us might confuse "Ju-on" with "Ringu" (Japanese) or "The Ring" (American). Here's how to differentiate the two movies.

In "Ringu", you watch a she-ghost climbing out from a narrow well with long hair covering her face. She's Sadako (Japanese) or Samara (American). In "Ju-on", what you see are basically white-faced ghosts, especially that of a little boy. Also, you'll hear that freaking throaty "aaaaaaakkkkkkk" sound from the ghosts. :S

This year, the Japanese feeds horror movie fans with a new sequel from Ju-on. So, we've Ju-on: White Ghost & Black Ghost. In a nutshell, there are two separate movies, i.e. one ghost in each movie with the white ghost taking precedence.

The thing is... this movie is very confusing. Allow me to explain.

The idea of using flashback sequences is good. Each sequence focuses on a character and how he/she is killed by the curse, either directly or indirectly. The white ghosts (take note that I'm using the plural form) are the results of a family massacre. The black ghost is the result of an unborn twin.

The confusing thing is... certain parts of the second movie are related to the first movie directly or indirectly (again). It's as if the scenes were filmed backwards, i.e. against normal timelime by starting off with the latest incidents and drilling down to incidents that happened 7 years ago in the same house. However, not all plots are related correctly or logically. Some plots are hanging in the air, adding on to the confusion, leaving me wondering what is what.

Okay, 'nuff said. My point is... if you're not a big fan of horror movies, give this movie a skip. This advice comes from myself, a horror movie fan. :)

Ok. This (How to Be a Vampire) is the proven "side-effect" of watching Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant with a "Vampire/Zombie". ;)

Should I buy or not buy this book for him? Decisions... decisions... :P

Starbucks' Beverage Menu

This is a very good initiative by Starbucks. I'm not aware of how long has this been practiced but I'm thrilled when one of the Starbucks baristas @ Giant, Kelana Jaya gave this longish dark brown Starbucks Beverage Menu to my sister! :D

IMHO, it'd be good if this booklet is smaller in terms of size/dimension. Then, it'd be handy and easy to store in our handbags without crumpling it. :)

Love this teasing tagline.

Welcome to Starbucks
Feeling adventurous? Whatever drink you choose, we'll make it exactly the way you like it. For ideas, just look inside. Your favorite drink awaits.


Here's the inside of the booklet.


Oh yeah, this booklet saves me from the "shame" of standing in front of the counter, wondering what to order everytime I pay Starbucks a visit. :D

This is the best part - the invite to join Starbucks' Online Community.

Oh yeah, I love this promise too.

Our Promise: Love It or Let Us Know
Your drink should be perfect, every time - whether it's something on the menu or not. And if you don't get what you expected, let us know and we'll make it right.
