SMS- Funny...:)

From KL Aunty... This one is funny...Happy reading...:)

Chinese + English = Chinglish.

You might like this. This is hillarious...even an Englishman could not construct sentences using numeric, which is exclusive only to Malaysians.

Ah Lek was asked to make a sentence using 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Not only did he do it 1 to 10, he did it again from 10 back to 1.

This is what he came up with...

"1 day i go 2 climb a 3 outside a house to peep. But the couple saw me, so i panic and 4down. The man rushed out and wanted to 5 with me. I ran until i fell 6 and threw up. So i go into 7 - eleven and grabbed some 8 to throw at him. Then i took a 9 and try to stab at him. 10 God, he run away.

10, i put the 9 back and pay for the 8 and left 7 - eleven. Next day i called my boss and told him i was 6. He said 5, tomorrow also no need to come back 4 work. He also asked me to go climb a 3 and jump down. I don;t understand. I so nice 2 him. Don;t know what he 1."

You needed Me - Anne Murray

This song was requested by Tembam

(At that time i have not got the clip for "Ocean deep" yet (now i do and have been practising it)..:)
Normally during K, i sang the version from Boyzone. This version is from the original singer...Anne Murray.)

Drop by her blog sometimes. She is very dedicated to missing childrens' info. From Nurin to Nini, she is all out in the blogging world in spreading missing children's info.

She also from time to time, post clips on what to do should crime does occur. The latest one i saw, was what to do in case of car jacking and we are in the 'boot'. That clip very educational.

Everyday I Love You Lyrics
» Boyzone

I don't know, but I believe
That some things are meant to be
And that you'll make a better me
Everyday I love you

I never thought that dreams came true
But you showed me that they do
You know that I learn somethng new
Everyday I love you

'Cos I believe that destiny
Is out of our control (don't you know that I do)
And you'll never live until you love
With all your heart and soul.

It's a touch when I feel bad
It's a smile when I get mad
All the little things I am
Everyday I love you

Everyday I love you boy
Everyday I love you

'Cos I believe that destiny
Is out of our control (don't you know that I do)

And you'll never live until you love
With all your heart and soul

If I asked would you say yes?
Together we're the very best
I know that I am truly blessed
Everyday I love you
And I'll give you my best
Everyday I love you

From Star.

Wonder what excuse will this pair give now. Having beaten the Danish pair twice and now loss to them in home ground. Not a good thing. Lucky they lost in 3 sets...if in straight sets...even malu.

This tournament is the first one of the year and our Malaysian pair is rank among the top 3 of the world...lost in second round.

This is an important year...with the Thomas Cup and Olimpic around the corner. This two better buck up. They are running out of excuses. They better improve in the next tournament.

The mind game is very important.

Badminton: Koo-Tan lose to Danes

VETERANS Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah and Chan Chong Ming-Chew Choon Eng advanced to the quarter-finals of the Malaysian Open badminton championships but the celebrations were muted following the shocking exit of defending champions Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil last night.

The signs were already there when the world number one pair struggled to beat third-ranked Indonesians Hendra Gunawan-Joko Riyadi in their opening match on Wednesday.

And their worst fears came true when they crashed 19-21, 21-18, 16-21 to former world champions Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen of Denmark in the second round.

This is the second successive time that they have failed to make it past the early rounds of a Super Series tournament. Kien Keat-Boon Heong lost to Taiwan’s Tsai Chia-hsin-Hu Chung-shien in the second round of the China Open last November.

This time, Boon Heong proved to be the weak link and it was no surprise to see the Danish pair going on to claim victory in 59 minutes.

Kien Keat had to run all over the court to do most of the work and the Danish pair, world champions in 2003, capitalised on it by targeting Boon Heong in the rubber game.

Boon Heong committed numerous unforced errors in the rubber game to allow the veteran Danish pair to come back from 11-14 down and seal victory.

Kien Keat-Boon Heong had beaten the Danish pair twice before and yesterday’s defeat in their home Open was painful indeed, especially when they had high hopes of making a good start to their campaign for the year.

Despite the unexpected early defeat, doubles coach Rexy Mainaky chose not to blast the Malaysian pair for their poor display, saying “they are still the main hope for the Beijing Olympics in August”.

“This defeat in the Malaysian Open should not be used as the only yardstick to judge them.

“Our priority is still the Olympics and I believe they are good for the title there,” said Rexy, who also pleaded for support for the pair.

“We have to understand that no athlete can stay on the winning trail all the time. The pair have been performing well for some time and it’s more important for them to learn from this and come back stronger.”

Malaysia’s hopes now rest on the shoulders of Tan Fook-Wan Wah and Chong Ming-Choon Eng.

Tan Fook-Wan Wah, winners in 2004, overcame fellow Malaysians Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock 19-21, 21-18, 21-18 and will face Paaske-Rasmussen next.

Chong Ming-Choon Eng, who had to play their way from the qualifying rounds, continued with their impressive run by reaching the last eight when they scored a 21-13, 13-21, 21-14 win over world No 26 Chia-hsin-Chung-shien.

From Kl Aunty...:)

But we all have the power 2 give away love,
2 other people.

And if we do so, we change the kind
of person we are,

And we change the kind of world
we live in.

Happy Morning...:)

Happy birthday, Smurfs!

Got it from here.

Something light for a change. When i was young, used to watch this cartoon...:) Every episode got an adventure and a moral story at the end of it. And the characters of the smurfs are the characteristics we all have.

Wisdom - Papa Smurf, lazy - Lazy smurf, able to work with tools - Handy smurf, smart - Brainy smurf, clumsy - Clumsy smurf, sewing skill - Tailor smurf, green thumb - Farmer smurf, dreamer - Dreamy smurf, arts - Painter smurf, jock - Hefty Smurf, beauty- Vanity smurf, comedian - Jokey smurf, moody - Grouchy smurf, kitchen - Baker smurf, greed - greedy smurf.

Smurfette was one of the first lady in smurf village. Can;t remember how she got there.

As u can see, there is a smurf in everyone of us....:)

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -- The Smurfs -- led by Papa Smurf and Smurfette -- kicked off a year of 50th birthday celebrations Monday with Smurfberry cake and sasparilla juice.

The late cartoonist Pierre Culliford -- best known by his pen name, "Peyo" -- first introduced the tiny blue figures in a comic strip in October 1958. He called them Schtroumpf; they became known worldwide as the Smurfs.

The Smurfs, forest dwellers who live in little white-capped mushroom homes, developed their own "Smurf" language in which nouns and verbs were interchanged.

Their debut on U.S. television in 1981 launched their global rise to stardom and made the Smurfs a household name. A Smurf is a Pitufo in Spanish, a Schlumpf in German, Nam Ching Ling to the Chinese, a Sumafa in Japan and Dardassim in Hebrew.

"I think that if he could see all that has been done with his characters since his death and the success and interest that the Smurfs still attract, he would be very, very, very, very happy and very proud," said Peyo's son, Thierry Culliford.

To mark 50 years of Smurfdom, organizers are planning everything from a 3-D animation feature film expected to be released next year to new comic book collections and a remastered release of the popular 1980s television animated series, Peyo's family said.

Peyo's widow and two children will help kick off a European birthday tour in Brussels. The Smurfs celebration will continue in Paris and Berlin.

The Smurfs also will team up with the UNICEF to promote children's rights and education worldwide, said Yves Willemont of UNICEF Belgium.

"The Smurfs and UNICEF have a lot of values in common -- values about joy, happiness and respect," Willemont said. "We also have in common the fact that we are dedicated to the cause of children and to the promotion of every child and the right of every child to survive."

UNICEF and the Smurfs joined forces two years ago to raise the plight of ex-child soldiers in Africa.

Born in Brussels, Peyo worked as a movie projectionist before entering the world of comic strip drawing.

The Smurfs appeared as a supporting cast of characters in Peyo's 1958 "Johan and Pirlouit" cartoon, which was set in the Middle Ages.

The Smurfs quickly grew in popularity and by 1960, the Smurfs had their own comic strip series and. With the help of the Hanna-Barbera Productions, the Smurfs became an animated cartoon in 1981.

Thierry Culliford said the Smurfs promote love and friendship. He said many who grew up watching the Smurfs on TV during the 1980s and 1990s now are parents and want to introduce the Smurfs to their children.

Demand for Smurf stories continues, said Hendrik Coysman, managing director of IMPS, which controls the rights of the Smurf brand worldwide.

"Thousands of fans are asking for more stories and these will be based of course on the fantastic asset that Peyo has left us," Coysman said.

Peyo, who died 15 years ago, "would be very happy if he were here today" to see Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Handy, Jokey and the troop of 96 others celebrate 50 years of Smurfmania, daughter Veronique Culliford said. E-mail to a friend

Smart girl (and lucky too)....

From Star.

Worker who tried to flee with girl held

MALACCA: Police have detained a 21-year-old construction worker from Myanmar who tried to run away with a 13-year-old girl in Penang.

The man was said to have tried to coax the girl into following him while she was on her way to attend a Quran class last Thursday.

Melaka Tengah OCPD ASP Johari Yahya said police received a call at noon yesterday that the man was seen around the Melaka Sentral bus station.

A team led by C/Insp V. Gunasegaran went to the station and arrested the man.

ASP Johari said the man did not resist arrest as he was taken by surprise.

He said the man wanted to go to Johor after staying in Malacca for two days. A bus ticket to Mersing was found on him.

The girl’s father had lodged a report after he found her returning home several hours late.

The girl was said to have outsmarted the man by telling him she needed to go back to collect her identification papers.

The man, who did not suspect anything, waited for her to return at the Butterworth bus terminal but she went to her sister's shop and later returned home.

Another child missing - please help...

Please go to Tembam's blog.

Lets hope and pray that the child is safe and be found ASAP.


Cops begin massive search for Sharlinie
PETALING JAYA: Police have begun a massive search for five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar who disappeared from a playground about 200m from her house in Taman Medan on Wednesday.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said a task force headed by Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed has been formed with Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor police.

He said posters of Sharlinie and the photofit of a suspect in the attempted abduction of a six-year-old girl near her flat in Kampung Sepakat on Monday, about 2km from where Sharlinie went missing, have also been sent to all police stations located at the borders.

The girl was found three hours later in Wangsa Maju.

Musa said there was a possibility that the suspect was linked to the abduction of Sharlinie and the previous cases in Kampung Baru.

“We have told them to be on the lookout for anyone trying to cross the border with a girl fitting the description of Sharlinie.

“We have also alerted all airports and our counterparts in neighbouring countries to be on the lookout,” he told reporters at a joint press conference with Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil at the Petaling Jaya police station yesterday.

Musa said the police want to interview those who saw Sharlinie being abducted.

“The incident occurred about 11am. At that time there were several stalls and people in the area.

“So those who might have witnessed the incident should come forward to help us identify the criminals involved in the case,” he said, adding that this would enable the police to take swift action in locating the girl and nabbing the culprits.

He said those with information on Sharlinie’s whereabouts could contact her father Mohd Nashar Mat Hussain at 016-258 3450 / 016-270 9096 or call the police at 03-7966 2222 or Rakan Cop at 03-2115 9999.

Asked about a phone call and text message received by Sharlinie’s father, Musa said police were investigating its authenticity.

“People should only give genuine information and not take advantage of other people’s grief,” he said.

Musa said he has directed Selangor CPO Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar to discuss with the Taman Medan Village Security and Development Committee on having parents or an elderly person from every housing estate at playgrounds.

“By doing this, everyone, including parents and the police, will be able to monitor the children,” he said.

Golf Channel announcer suspended 2 weeks for 'lynch' Tiger comment.

From ESPN.

By Ron Sirak

Kelly Tilghman, the Golf Channel anchor who during Friday's broadcast from the Mercedes-Benz Championship said while discussing Tiger Woods' dominance that young players on the PGA Tour should "lynch him in a back alley," was suspended two weeks Wednesday for the remark.

The move came after a wave of outrage that included a call for her to be fired by civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton and despite a statement from the Woods camp saying, "It is a complete non-issue."

Sharpton said the fact Woods did not call for punishment of Tilghman does not mean the comment was not offensive to African-Americans.

"That's the same thing Don Imus said," Sharpton said on CNN Headline News Wednesday, referring to the radio shock-jock's racially offensive comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team. "[He said] 'I want to talk to the Rutgers girls' and not talk about the insult he said on all blacks."

Sharpton said the issue of hanging strikes a raw nerve among African-Americans.

"If I got on this show and said I wanted to put some Jewish-American in a gas chamber, I don't care what context I said it in, the entire Jewish community would have the right to say I should be put off this show or my radio show if I said it there," Sharpton told CNN. "Or if I said I wanted to see a woman raped. This is an insult to all blacks. Lynching is not murder in general; it is not assault in general. It is a specific racial term."

The Golf Channel, which originally said there would be no punishment, changed its position less than three hours after Sharpton's remarks with a statement issued Wednesday night:

"The Golf Channel regrets the poorly chosen remarks made by Kelly Tilghman on a recent broadcast and, again, extends our apologies to anyone who was offended. There is simply no place on our network for offensive language like this. While we believe that Kelly's choice of words was inadvertent and that she did not intend them in an offensive manner, the words were hurtful and grossly inappropriate. Consequently, we have decided to suspend Kelly for two weeks, effective immediately."

According to Alabama's Tuskegee University, 3,466 African-Americans were lynched in the United States from 1882-1968. In 2005, The U.S. Senate officially apologized for failing to act on more than 200 anti-lynching bills introduced over the years.

The use of a hangman's noose as a racist symbol has resurfaced recently, most notably in the 2006 case of the Jena Six when six black high school students in Louisiana were charged with beating a white student after nooses had been left in a tree under which the black students had asked school permission to sit.

A story on its Web site posted before the suspension was announced said the Golf Channel "regrets the unfortunate choice of words that Kelly Tilghman used during a recent broadcast and we wish to apologize to anyone who was offended by her remarks. We take this matter very seriously. Kelly has apologized privately to Tiger and publicly on the air."

In her statement, Tilghman said, "On Friday during our golf broadcast, Nick Faldo and I were discussing Tiger's dominance in the golf world and I used some poorly chosen words. I have known Tiger for 12 years and I have apologized directly to him. I also apologize to our viewers who may have been offended by my comments."

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg of IMG, released a statement saying, "This story is a non-issue. Tiger and Kelly are friends and Tiger has a great deal of respect for Kelly. Regardless of the choice of words used, we know unequivocally that there was no ill intent in her comments. This story is a non-issue in our eyes."

According to The Associated Press, Woods and Tilghman have known each other 12 years. She was picked to host a club demonstration with Woods in south Florida when he talked about new products from Nike Golf.

The comments by Tilghman flew under the radar all weekend, even after she apologized on-air during Sunday's broadcast. Newsday, a suburban New York newspaper, reported Tilghman's apology on Monday.

"I'm sure Kelly wishes she never said that," Jim Furyk said, according to The Associated Press. "I haven't spoken with Tiger, but I've been told that they've had their talk and they've discussed it. Anything I say is kind of just like pouring salt in the wound at this point. Obviously, she would love to not have said that and for it not to be news. I'm glad that her and Tiger spoke."

Fred Funk only heard about the comment Wednesday morning at the Sony Open.

"There was no ill intent at all," Funk said, according to The Associated Press. "I think it was just a slip, and they said that Tiger has already forgiven her. I think when you're in the TV tower for that many hours, you're going to wish you didn't say some things probably, and that was one thing that slipped out. I think you've got to give them a little grace."

Tilghman, one of the most-popular on-air personalities at Golf Channel, (last year was the first of a 15-year deal by the Golf Channel to broadcast PGA Tour events) became the first female to anchor a professional golf broadcast, and one of the few to hold such a prominent position in all of sports.

The former player for the Duke University golf team competed professionally from 1992-96 before joining the Golf Channel. She will return to the air Jan. 25 at the Buick Invitational, which will be Woods' first tournament of the 2008 season.

Ron Sirak is the executive editor of Golf World magazine. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Hope this will serve her a lesson. It seems she is already a famous person and does not need the 'fame'. She supposed to be in the know of what to say and what not to say. Lynch is one word that should not be in any one's vocab let along 'slip of the tongue'.

Let us hope and pray that no ding dong will follow her 'advice'.

Is she stupid or what?

From here.

Golf Channel anchor says young golfers should 'lynch Tiger Woods'

By Roy S. Johnson

Tuesday, Jan 8, 2008 4:38 pm EST

What is it about Duke? Okay, maybe that's not fair. But it did make me scratch my head and wonder when I read what Kelly Tilghman, a former Blue Devil golfer, said on the Golf Channel last Friday during her gig as co-lead announcer for the network's telecast of the Mercedes-Benz Championship, the PGA Tour's inaugural event of the season.

I have not seen the clip, nor do I know the context of the remarks. This is what I know -- that Tilghman, who never played on the LPGA Tour, said golf's young players should "lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley."

Had Woods been white, to use the most heinous crime committed in this nation to illustrate God-knows-what point would have been egregious. But that he's not makes the remark unconscionable. And punishable.

It would be a travesty if Tilghman is allowed to broadcast the next event for the Golf Channel. (It speaks volumes already that she was allowed to sit on the air all day Saturday, as if nothing happened. She then offered an on-air apology Sunday but still did the entire telecast.)

At minimum, a suspension is in order. Some will surely call for a firing. If the network does nothing -- just months after the Jena Six dominated the nation's airwaves -- it would make a significant statement about the network's tolerance of such actions. A statement that would hurt the sport of golf and rekindle memories of a racist history that Woods' success has helped it begin to move past.

Doing nothing would remind us of Fuzzy Zoeller

Doing nothing would remind us of Shoal Creek.

Doing nothing would not be smart.

Okay, so it's just the Golf Channel. And Kelly Tilghman is simply a hottie that was given an opportunity to anchor a telecast because she can swing a golf club.

That is not the point. Tolerance at any level cannot be tolerated.

Your move, GC.

Tilghman has reportedly reached out to Woods to apologize. Here's hoping, at least for the moment -- until the Golf Channel makes its statement -- that he does not accept the call. Or the apology.

Roy S. Johnson, an award-winning journalist who is currently the editor-in-chief of Men’s Fitness magazine, pens a daily blog called "Ballers, Gamers and Scoundrels."

I hope she will be suspended or fired from saying such a thing. A 'sorry' is enough? What happens when some ding dong do this to Tiger or his family? And said "i got the idea from the golf channel lady anchor."

Come on this is the modern age...and yet stiil got use the word 'lynch'? A stupid way to get her 15 minutes of fame. Fire her and make sure she does not show her ding dong face in any TV shows.

Note: Why am i mad over this..its because since day one Tiger already face this kind of thing. Letters about harming him and etc.

He is African American chasing Jack Nicklaus (who is white) 18 grand slam title. Tiger has 13 grand slam titles. 5 more to tie and 6 more to beat Jack's record.

His security is tight. All it takes is one ding dong to 'harm' him and there goes the title chasing and history making.

Look at Monica Seles (former top player), she was stabbed by Steffi Graf's (top player at the time) fan. And her game was never the same.

Got this from email. Please pass the message along.

Dear Friends,

If you are used to paying 'Kopi Money' when stopped for traffic offences, DON'T Do This Again.

The traffic department has recently started a campaign to be rid of corruption. The officers on duty will be rewarded RM100.00 when they report each case to the department. This is how they do ( trick you into) it. They will note down the details of your IC/MyKad, and ask you how you want to settle (Paying Kopi Money?). They will then report the incident by passing up the 'Kopi Money' and get the RM100.00 in
return for their good deed. You will end up having a summon issued to you.

DON'T PAY KOPI RM AGAIN, especially if you hope to go free with RM20 kopi money. They rather have a 'good' name than to take your kopi money. Just beware of their trick because the cops are now clocking up 'cookies' points for their promotion and pay increment.

They should have done this to stop corruption long time ago, anyway better late than never...

Godfather theme song

By Andy Williams

Speak softly, love and hold me warm against your heart
I feel your words, the tender trembling moments start
Were in a world, our very own
Sharing a love that only few have ever known

Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one

Speak softly, love so no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours and all becau-au-se
You came into my world with love so softly love

(instrumental interlude>

Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one

Speak softly, love so no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours and all becau-au-se
You came into my world with love so softly love

Favourite shows and movies...

Yesterday, saw a repeat airing of the 35th AFI life Achievement Award. Last year's (2007) award went to Al Pacino. He is one of my favourite actor.

His friends and co stars gave him great tributes.

"Al Pacino is an icon of American film. He has created some of the great characters in the movies--from Michael Corleone to Tony Montana to Roy Cohn. His career inspires audiences and artists alike, with each new performance a master class for a generation of actors to follow. AFI is proud to present him with its 35th Life Achievement Award."
- Sir Howard Stringer, chair, AFI Board of Trustees

The Achievement of Al Pacino
By Helene Siegel

The trustees of the American Film Institute have selected Al Pacino to receive AFI's 35th Life Achievement Award.

Nearly 40 years after delivering a shockingly real performance as Bobby, the strung-out dope addict in THE PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK, Al Pacino--one of the most honored actors of his generation--is still refining his craft, and defining it for the next generation.

His driving intelligence and quest for excellence have given us such indelible screen characters as tortured mob chief Michael Corleone, Det. Frank Serpico, irresistible bank robber Sonny of DOG DAY AFTERNOON, blind tango dancer Lt. Col. Frank Slade of SCENT OF A WOMAN and Tony Montana, a gangster who remains a cultural force 20 years after the release of SCARFACE.

Between and around those legendary roles, this actor's actor plays on the nation's best stages in works by Israel Horovitz, Bertolt Brecht, David Mamet, William Shakespeare and, most recently, in Oscar Wilde's Salome. His passion for language and the art of acting led him to write and direct LOOKING FOR RICHARD, an award-winning documentary that explores the beauty and relevance of Shakespeare for a modern screen audience. At the same time, he stretches his muscles as a filmmaker with personal projects like THE LOCAL STIGMATIC and CHINESE COFFEE.

Once Pacino discovered his gifts, as an only child in the Bronx of the 1940s and then at the Actors Studio, where as a young adult he studied his craft under the tutelage of mentors like Charlie Laughton and Lee Strasberg, he honored them by making a singular commitment to his craft. By plunging into acting as his way to connect with the world, the intense young actor learned to express himself like no other.

Building on the techniques that fellow Method actor Marlon Brando displayed so brilliantly in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE and ON THE WATERFRONT, Pacino plumbed his own psyche to create a finely wrought cast of ruthless gangsters, conflicted cops, street punks and mid-life wrecks who, even from the depths of depravity, can make us love them, or feel what it must be like to walk in their shoes.

Sidney Lumet, who directed the actor in DOG DAY AFTERNOON and SERPICO, tried to explain the Pacino magic: "Everything stems from some incredible core inside of him. I wouldn't think of trying to get near it, because it would be like getting somewhere near the center of the earth. What comes out of his core is so uniquely his own."

That core can feel as elemental as the human condition itself, and when it flashes on the big screen it touches something deep inside of us. Like that other movie gangster with the streets of New York written on his face, James Cagney, and that female outlaw Bette Davis, Pacino's power is volcanic. It keeps us in our seats just waiting for it to explode with operatic intensity. Whether he's standing up to the tobacco industry and big media as crusading producer Lowell Bergman in THE INSIDER, seducing another pathetic sucker as salesman Ricky Roma in David Mamet's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS, or slipping into bedlam as the raving Roy Cohn in ANGELS IN AMERICA, the truth feels red hot. And it is compelling to watch.

That same man is also capable of the finest restraint. In the averted glances of worn-out street soldier Lefty Ruggiero at the end of his game in DONNIE BRASCO, in the stooped shoulders of weary investigator Dormer out to crack one more case in INSOMNIA, and in the hollow, calculating eyes of Michael Corleone, Pacino has drawn characters that shimmer with the nuances of real life. He is a master at portraying men who have perhaps seen too much, but who, like Det. Frank Keller in SEA OF LOVE, yearn for a second chance.

In life and on the screen Pacino has not played it safe. He committed to the actor's life as a poor kid from the Bronx who quit the School of Performing Arts at 16 to help support his family. He held jobs as a messenger, an usher and a building superintendent while apprenticing at avant-garde off-off-Broadway theater companies until joining the Actors Studio and dedicating himself to acting full time at the age of 26. He struggled, sleeping on friends' floors, appearing off-Broadway in The Indian Wants the Bronx, and screen-testing several times, at the age of 32, for the role in THE GODFATHER that would cement his place in cinematic history.

Paramount thought he was too short and understated to play a gangster, and suggested less ethnic actors for the part. But Francis Ford Coppola, who had seen Pacino on the stage in New York, knew he had found a true son for Brando, a casting decision for which author Mario Puzo was forever grateful.

"The great bonus was Al Pacino," remembered Puzo in his book, The Godfather Papers. "As Michael, Pacino was everything I wanted that character to be on screen. I couldn't believe it. It was, in my eyes, a perfect performance, a work of art."

In his quest to uncover what it means to be alive, Pacino has applied himself tirelessly to his craft and the result is a body of work that glows with vitality. His gifts have not gone unrecognized. The eight-time Academy Award nominee has taken home an Obie, a Tony, an Oscar and an Emmy.

As the consummate actor said about identity, at a 2007 seminar at the AFI Conservatory, "Who you are is really about what you do."

And Al Pacino acts like no other.

A time for us (Romeo and Juliet 1968)

A time for us, some day there'll be
When chains are torn by courage born of a love that's free
A time when dreams so long denied can flourish
As we unveil the love we now must hide
A time for us, at last to see
A life worthwhile for you and me

And with our love, through tears and thorns
We will endure as we pass surely through every storm
A time for us, some day there'll be a new world
A world of shining hope for you and me

For you and me

And with our love, through tears and thorns
We will endure as we pass surely through every storm
A time for us, some day there'll be a new world
A world of shining hope for you and me

A world of shining hope for you and me

Strangers in the Night

I would like to dedicate this song to the fans of the late Frank Sinatra.

Writer(s): kaempfert/singleton/snyder

Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wondring in the night
What were the chances wed be sharing love
Before the night was through.

Something in your eyes was so inviting,
Something in you smile was so exciting,
Something in my heart,
Told me I must have you.

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment
When we said our first hello.
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away,
A warm embracing dance away and -

Ever since that night weve been together.
Lovers at first sight, in love forever.
It turned out so right,
For strangers in the night.

SMS and a New Year morning news...

Hello friends, received this msg from KL aunty...:)

First Buzz for 2008!

Have a happy start off, may you welcome 2008 with the gutso and exuberances
befitting all the wonderful things it will bring you!

Remember if God brings you to it, God will see you through it.

Happy New year once again..:)

On another note, this is what happend to me on New year morning.

A fren of mine had a bad start.

This morning (Malaysia-1.1.08), he and his family went to church around 7-8:30am. Their car (wife's car) was parked at a car park and the place was full.

Some one tried to break in to their Land Cruiser (Ninja King), the glass at the back seat did not broke into pieces but the crack was there...they tried to hot wire the car...was not successful because they have imoblizer....they left a wrench inside the car.

Think they ran out of time and left the car. Lucky the car was not stolen.

I was still asleep when i received the call, quickly went into town to meet them. Police came over with their CSI kit. Police station only 5 minutes walk away from the car park place.

After CSI did their thing, then went to make police report, then get a tow car to tow to the workshop.

Coincidencely 1 year ago, my friend lost his Pajero on the 28.12.06 at his office.

And today his wife's car nearly got stolen.

Broad day light....sigh.
