the doulos came to kuching from December 10, 2008 until January 3, 2009 for a floating book fair. the ship was purchased in 1977 by the GBA Ships - a charitable organization registered in Germany. it visited more than 100 countries ever since. "bringing knowledge, help & hope". our visit onboard was short, for the weather was extremely humid. although the price was awfully cheap, we ran off after buying only 1 book.

now may not be the most suitable season to head on down to the beach, but no rain is stopping me when a trip was offered. the veiled sun n the fierce wind charging our way, the gushing waves adding intensity to the picture.
with a gloomy heart, i set foot on the beach, taking in the coldness while still seeking warmth leaning against him. a trip worthwhile as i returned much relaxed. his efforts n patience soothed the crankiness within me.
Note: i'll be away for 2 days starting tomorrow.

being an impatient person, i'm no believer towards distance relationship. the constant communication over electronic equipments (or physical connection) is essential, n successfully avoided my paranoia-self from surfacing. despite the short separated duration of 5 days, the reunion was remarkably sweet! uncontrollably n finally within reach to throw a physical embrace, the restless waiting all turned magically worthwhile.

the plot was the typical peter-pan plot. thought without surprises, the animated graphic was beautiful. flying through the sky, the galaxy is a little off, but the feeling is definitely exist. the scenes felt like it was taken out straight from the cartoon itself. awesome !!

sacrificing oneself to unite the world. crying my eyes out watching the final episode - zero requiem. though i don't analyze anime by tactics or predictability, i was not left bored for any one episode. the anime is a huge recommendation. he banished the world from its Past n Present, to create a new world for the Future. he died shouldering the hatred directed to himself, whom was finally the king of Britannia, n passed the power back to Zero, the symbol of Justice!

waking up hoping to be the image that pop into their mind, just as they popped into yours instinctively. but as time invisibly drift on by, truth continues to unfold itself following the previous struggle. Consistency took effort, often too much for some to handle. so the truth may be vicious, breathing may be gagging; the day flowed by like any other days. determine to absorb the impact, balance is finally regained.

it was frustrating dragging myself through the first few episodes, trying to understand all the explanations n details. everything took a drastic change when the "Dark Knights" appeared. since then, i had been uncontrollably addicted till the very last episodes. a student masked n disguised as a terrorist leader, Zero, leads the Japanese rebellions against Britannia. with the power of Geass, he made others obey his orders. a typical terrorism turned out to be rather interesting!

how will you react when some blogger just decided to ask you for money? for someone who didn't even placed effort to bond, asked me for $500 out of the blue, i was dreadfully offended. as if it's like, i'm foolish enough to fall for some sweet talk. i doubt the crumbled trust can be mended anytime soon.

agitation n rapid breathing took hold of me within the short hours. all came too aggressively n brutally, not giving slight chance to regain strength. choked in paranoia. it has to happen this instance, breaking the contentment built in previous days. desperately holding it in, i was in no control of myself. saddens, soundless tears escaped smoothly down my cheeks. dumbfound, i voiced no excuses, successful in seeking for a cuddle or two.

a hot n hectic day, but the adventure was filled with too much fun n excitement, left no room for complaints. nonstop walking leads to never ending exploration just within the plant compound itself. everything looks mysterious - complicated machinery n abandoned warehouses. we turned the place upside down. squeaking sound in every corner left us mystified, watchful for lurking shadows. with great leadership, he led us through every corner - climbed onto tanks so high, crawled under machinery so low. what was expected to be bored, turned out to be one heck of a ride!

the animation was often compared to pixar's "happy feet" back then. solely because both animation are based on penguins. the plot isn't as catchy, but it doesn't make the animation any less fun. there were quite a few scenes that makes me jump in my seat, thrilled n excited surfing through the biggest waves with the penguins!

season 2 of Gundam Seed isn't as good as its season 1 (Mobile Suit Gundam Seed). focused even more on personal hatreds n conflicts, n a little too much repetitive scenes to miss. however, there are more fancy gundams introduced in this second season.
this unique season has something different, which is the existence of the "Final Plus" (選ばれた未来) episode - a remake of the Final Phase (episode 50), with slight change in storyline n a lengthened battle, together with an epilogue to the series. the remake is due to complains received after episode 50 was aired. overall, i would still prefer seed over destiny.

though threaten by the way she does her work, we are in absolutely no position to isolate nor judge her as a person. being led, the rest of the crew attacked her mercilessly. out of selfishness, chose neither to attack nor defend. with crossed fingers, hoping she wouldn't take it as dreadfully as imagined.

somehow the perfect proportion of the cuddling cats gave me the very impression of yin yang (阴阳). doesn't the thought occur to you as well? :D
yin yang (阴阳) is often used in Taoism, to describe the intertwined relation of opposing forces. Many natural dualities - dark n light, female n male, low n high, positive n negative - are cast as yin yang
