Anna the Heart Breaker

Oh… she’s gonna be such a heart breaker when she grows up! I’m gonna make sure of it!! Ha ha ha ha… Shucks, I miss her already…

Picture of the Day

Anna and JJ Dressed up

Every now and then… we are able to capture that priceless moments of our kids.  This is one of those.  My kids are dressed up for a wedding of a friend and just the sheer looks of what could be construed as the unwillingness to dress up (Anna loves pretty dresses!) is… priceless!  We didn’t tell them to look down or look unhappy.  They just did it… on their own!  Ah…  it’s a piece of art!  😀

Hotel Rwanda – Thoughts

As I sit and watch this “movie” called “Hotel Rwanda”, I am saddened.

No, make that distraught.  Sickened to my stomach.  If you don’t know what this “movie” is about, it’s about the genocide that occurred in Rwanda between the Hutus and Tutsis.  800,000 died in the name of cleansing.  Sounds familiar?  I can think of Hitlers’ Jewish genocide.  Then there’s Bosnia.  Japanese with “cleansing” as well.

Why does all this have to happen?  This “movie” entails the story of Paul who helps run the place.   All this hatred.  Must stop.  Such ugliness stops only when all of us, one by one, stop it within ourselves.  No more hatred.  Let us all pray for peace, and unity.

For our children’s sake.  For God’s sake…

EDIT: I am just watched “Fearless” (Jet Li).  In his last words towards the end… the cliche but true… “What we need to do is not take  revenge.  Hatred will only breed more hatred.”  This was spoken after he just found out that he was poisoned.  Very befitting towards this whole nightmare of hatred.  
And both movies are based on true stories… Paul is my new hero.  A man of love and action.  So is Master Huo for standing against hatred.

Philips forces ad viewing on TV


Philips, one of the major electronic company is filing for a patent that will force the viewer to watch ads!  You can’t change channel when it comes on!

Read it here!

Can you say “boycott”?!!  I mean, I know TV broadcasting companies have to make money but come on!  And why does Philips have to jump on this boat?!  I’ve respected this brand, but no more!  I’m on to you, Philips!! 😡

Happy birthday Anna!

My dearest daughter turns 4 today! 

I remember how much trouble she gave Soojin by not eating well the first 6 months.

I remember how she didn’t sleep through the night until she was 9 months old!

I remember how she threw up purple juice and pizza on me!

I remember how fast she started to say words…

Time sure flies when your loved ones grow up!   As difficult as the past 4 years have been, they have been also even more of joy in our God-given parenthood!  I still wouldn’t have traded her for the world!

Happy birthday sweetie!

Mom & dad love you very much!
