12 Dec 2010 – Illusions with Lights
Toys Games Comics Convention@Suntec. Still looking out for a light sable but not quite the full size. Care Bears bring me precious memories of Linn&May from 1985@LAX/USA immigration with May clutching tightly to her pink Care Bear. Handed all our passports to the officer, Linn/Ireland, May/Norwegian and me/SIN. The officer smiled and asked if her Care Bear also had its own passport and from which country. Poor May! She looked apprehensive as she did not quite speak or understand English then, but after Linn‘s translation, came this big smile on her face.
Thanks to nephew Clement for a piece of the sinfully delicious chocolate from Sins and a yummy steak dinner@Outback***at Millenia Walk. Must be synchronicity as will usually go for local food when in SIN, that same night, Linn was also enjoying her Omaha steaks!
A Page of Madness/狂った一頁 a 1926 Japanese movie, would be unfair to rate as it is a class of its own. Takes place in an asylum and tells the story of the asylum’s janitor and his wife as one of the patients. The music was deafeningly loud and distracting. The film does not contain subtitles nor any titles, difficult to follow and I was really lost… felt like I was going mad!
My desk, total chaos (after watching the movie!) over the weekend. Snail-mail seasonal greetings to USA & EU are done and out in the mail, they are getting less after the existence of email and Facebook! But there are some who are not online and some who like receiving hard copies. Next week to get the snail-mail for Asia out and the email messages drafted before pressing the SEND button! How did we ever managed over hundreds of seasonal greetings out in time before email I will never understand 🙂
Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces – Sigmund Freud
