I seriously suggest he surveyed how much "you help me, i help you" goodies were distributed during GE and by-elections all this year but again, a masquerading academic (who tainted his PhD - an insult to all PhD holders) like him won't think right or speak right. With caricatures like him and his even more embarrassing predecessor Zainuddin, I would like to say Mohammad Rahmat was a saner UMNO minister.

The smaller caption of the title says :
How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done
Before I decide to borrow the book from library, I flipped through introduction to help me to make the decision. It managed to get me by these :
Besides, as a rational, non-guillible sort of person, I was allergic to the cheesy premises of self help gurus.
But I should be honest : if I was half-joking, I was also half-serious. Deep down, however much we cover it up with cynicsm and wisecracks, isn't everybody at least half-serious about wanting to be happy?
That brings me to the name of my blog. :)
Director : Ya-Chuan Hsiao
Cast : Lun-Mei Kwai
Purely because of Lun-Mei Kwai, this sophomore effort of Hsiao after 9 years is is a feel-good work. Under the mentoring of Hou-Hsiao Hsien, I hope she will have more funding to make more movies. Looking forward to that. Though coffee house or cafe might sound a bit tad "out" now, I am still intrigued to visit it during my Taipei trip. Gonna be busy in Taipei this time!
Director : Tsai Ming Liang
Filmed in moi Paris, with special permission to shoot inside the Lourve I would say Tsai went overboard this time. He kinda used the same tactic in his previous work, The Wayward Cloud (2005). It's funny to watch Fanny Ardant being dubbed with the old Chinese "shi-dai-qu" but that alone won't sustain my attention.
