somewhere from Facebook:

Tình yêu mong manh
Long lanh làn khói
Nói rằng tim nói
Thì trí ở đâu
Cay mắt trên đầu
Bắt vào âm ỉ
Chỉ đường không chỉ
Bỏ vào li nhau
Uống vào thì đau
Không đau thì khát
Trời xanh bát ngát
Một bát dạo chơi
Lời cởi lời rơi
Tơi bời khói lửa
Nửa đi tìm nửa
Tôi đi tìm sông
Lông nhông mà tắm
Hết say hết đắm
Thành nhộng thành tằm
Kết bè bể dâu
Đâu đâu cũng mát
Tỉ hát cùng ca
Haha haha

Just music

The morna (pronunciation in both Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole: [ˈmɔɾnɐ]) is a music and dance genre from Cape Verde.

Lyrics are usually in Cape Verdean Creole, and instrumentation often includes cavaquinho, clarinet, accordion, violin, piano and guitar. Morna is often compared to the blues[citation needed]; there is little research on the relationship between the genres, though there are interesting similarities and significant cultural connections between Cape Verde and the United States[citation needed]. Morna is widely considered the national music of Cape Verde, as is the fado for Portugal, the tango for Argentina, the rumba for Cuba, and so on.

The choice

Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that’s not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Neo: No.
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.

_later_

Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is *no turning back*. You take the *blue pill* – *the story ends*, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the *red pill* – *you stay in Wonderland* and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

_then Neo took the red pill_

Forget Him – Shirley Kwan

I’ve found it!
To forget him
is the same as forgetting everything
losing all senses of direction
and losing oneself

To forget him
is the same as forgetting all happiness
locking heart and soul
together with pain

it has always been only he
who can make me appreciate myself
and allow me to use love
to change common things
into something beautiful

To forget him
how can i do that ever?
He has been engraved in my heart
and inscribed in my bones
to forever be remembered
from now to eternity

Best scene in cinema ever

This scene is from Edward Yang’s A Bright Summer Day. He is known for Yi Yi, however I find A Bright Summer Day is such a masterpiece, an magnum opus.

Wong Kar-Wai


Watching his movies is really a pleasure; it gave me a total different idea about movies. I used to like a movie because of its story; movies like The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, etc. However, recently I am trying to watch other less mainstream movies such as Blue Velvet. This leads me to WKW. Chungking Express or In the Mood for Love can be watched just for the sake of watching, every shot is beautiful.
