A wealthy man and his only son loved to collect rare works of art. They had everything in their collection, from Picasso to Raphael. They would often sit together and admire the great works they had accumulated.
When the Vietnam conflict broke out, the son went to war.He was very courageous and died while trying to rescue another soldier. The father was notified and he grieved deeply for his son.
About a month later, just before Chrismas, there was a knock on the door. A young man was standing there, with a large package in his hands. He said:"Sir, you don't know me, but I am the soldier for whom your son gave his life. He saved many lives that day...he was carrying me to safety when a bullet struck him in the heart and he died instantly. He often talked about you, and your love for art."
The young man held out the package."I know this isn't much. I'm not really a great artist, but I think your son would have wanted you to have this."
The father opened the package. Inside was a portrait of his son, painted by the young man. He stared in awe at the way the soldier had captured his personality in the painting. The father was so drawn to the eyes of his son that his own welled up with tears. He thanked the young man and offered to pay him for the picture.
"Oh, no sir. I could never repay what your son did for me. It'a a gift."
The father hung the portrait over his mantle. Every time he had visitors, he would show them the portrait of his son, before showing any of the other works he had collected.
The man died a few months into the new year. Soon after that, there was to be a big auction of his collected paintings. Many influential people gathered for the event, excited about viewing his collection and getting the opportunity to purchase one or two pieces for themselves.
On the auction platform sat the painting of he son. The auctioneer pounded his gavel.
"We will start the bidding with this picture. Who will bid for it?"
There was a silence. Then a voice in the back of the room shouted,"We want to see the famous paintings. Skip this one."
But the auctioneer persisted:"Will somebody bid for this painting? Who will start the bidding?$100?$200?"
Another voice cried out angrily."We didn't come to see this! We want to see the Van Goghs and Rembrandts. Get on with the real bids!"
Still, the auctioneer continued,"The son! The son! Who'll take the son?"
Finally, a voice came from the very back of the room. It was the long-time gardener of the man and his son."I'll give $10 for the painting."It was all he could afford.
"We have $10. Now who will bid $20?"
"Give it to him for $10. Let's see the masters."
"$10 is the bid. Won't someone offer $20?"
The crowd was becoming angry. They didn't want the picture of the son. They wanted the more worthy investments for their collections.
The auctioneer pounded the gavel."Going once, twice...SOLD for $10!"
A man sitting in the second row shouted," Now let's get on with the collection!"
The auctioneer laid down his gavel and said, "I'm sorry, the auction is over."
"What about the paintings?"
"I'm sorry. When I was called to conduct this auction, I was told of a secret stipulation in the will. Only the painting of the son would be auctioned. And whoever bought it would inherit the entire estate, including the paintings by the masters. The man who took the son gets everything!"
That's it. In the eyes of the world, the name and the price are the worth. But often, we do cast the most valueble thing aside because of its true.
我: Hi, Sir!
Sir : Eei, don't u greet me with bad word!
我: hehe....u still rmb us anot?

Well, here comes holiday, I have been waited for such a long time, and here it comes. Feels like......extremely FREE, really free indeed. Wake up at about 12pm, having lunch instead of breakfast as the first meal, watching drama series as much as I can (since there're SOOO MUCH dramas waiting for me..)playing computer games without feeling guilty, having my bed-time at about 4am......my time table was totally upside-down recently. Well, feeling good. Planning to have a jog on evening, but too bad, Mr.Sun was in rest these few days...Planning to have a movie with friends, but too bad, no money for it....Planning to have a swimming course with friends too, but too bad again, I din have swimming suit and this is not yet the main problem...since I'm too shy to show my elephant legs...HAHA..too much to do and less to complete......Yeah~~

"Prime Minister's wife Datin Seri Endon Mahmood passed away at 7.55 am Thursday(20/10/05) at the Prime Minister's official residence Seri Perdana Putrajaya.."
Ya, this is what i've seen when i'm on9-ing yesterday morning. What a shock !! I just cant believed it ! They said Datin Endon was in a good condition; they said Datin Endon gotta recover soon; they said ......
Honestly, i'm not the kind of concerning what's happening in our country as i'm not the kind of news-reader. But, thought, felt surprise and lost for losing such a great woman in our country. I dunno really know her, she's our Prime Minister's beloved wife,she's such a dear person-very dear to all of us-, she's the one who promoted the art of batik to the spectacles all over the worlds, she's the one who makes people believed suffered from breast cancer is not the end of the world, and yet, she just passed like this, unexpectedly.....
Even during her last hours, Datin Paduka Seri Endon's thoughts were of the people and her family.
“Take care of everybody and the family,” she advised her husband Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and family members gathered round her bedside.
Look, she's such a caring person...How would Pak lah live without her by his side...Oh..sorry...Feels so sorry..Yet Pak Lah still continued his job as a PM of Malaysia, until, today, he cried....for losing his beloved ...Datin Endon...
The skies were overcast, almost a reflection of the sombre mood of the people who came to pay their last respects to Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood.
What can i say ? Rest In Peace.....our beloved , braving the rain to say goodbye, to Datin Paduka Seri Endon Mahmood.......

It passed, finally....Waiting for so long, since last year we organised the very ever first graduation dinner for all the sixth-formers, and here comes our time, and yet, it passed, feeling "void" now...
Eerm....Before the dinner night, i heard that many sixth-formers were not reali appreciate the opportunity for us to gather together, for the very last time before STPM, saying wanna ganbate for their exam, ( Some say this is typical kia-su attitude of students ) but, however, this night, more accurately last night, was a reali star-shinning -good-clean-fun night ! I cant even recognised some of my frens after marvelous make-up ! SinLing, KaeLing, JingWen, YinFei, YiMiao, ChiewWay.........Wow ! That onli I found that all frens around me are sooooo pretty and handsome!Even MeeSan and Hazel oso make me "eye-in-front-shinning" haha....wow !!

Hazel , mum said u pannai choose da dress and da dress make you fabulous ! ChiouLing's dress abit princess like, haha....cutie style! Some may ask why we 4 oways stay together ler? Well, this is bcoz, we share the same camera, so have and had to stay together loh!
Eerm, actually i'm quite satisfy with my simple look lar--simple dress, simple hair-do, simple make-up--everything no surprising. ( cant imagine me with heavily made up and overdressed ) Well, a little bit "yi han" is, some of the pics seems double images, weird, KO, and that's my (our?) 101 pieces of pic with sbd else, geramnya ! But luckily most of my frens brought their camera along, so i can buy from them too..YEAH ! tin wu jue ren zhi lu...
Then came the time when all 2003/2004 Sixth Form Society AJK have to sing this year graduation song on da stage.."Fei Yue" It's a nice song, though. Reali in a high spirit, when we sang on da stage, seems like e'thing's gonna be end soon...Heard Jess said, some even cried when they sang the song together.Ya..moments of touching. Guess wut? Another song flashed into my mind at that time -- "不要问,不要说,一切尽在不言中....." sadnya........
Well, that's a reali fabulous night. Feeling regret and guilty for longing for this night and din study in this critical time geh...but luckily i enjoyed myself in d night, so...eerr....nvm lar....RELAX abit loh !

but...feels pity for Nita, actually she's a good singer oso..I reali tot she's the champion when the whole Arena SHOUT her name loud...Anywhere, good luck Nita !
Daniel ! I'm long for ur album ya !WAHAHAHA!!
Here comes my time...Feeling extremely happy and excited that finally I've gone through the terrible and torturing week, where my trial exam had finally finished...Although there's onli a short period where i have to face the GRAND FINALE stpm at october, well, this is the only time that i can enjoy myself..Chamnya...
Anywhere, sad to say that I've really done badly in this exam.Dunno y, I really do prepare before the exam, well, mayb not as hardwork as others, but i do hope it pays, and the results shows anything and everything, that i've done a bad job, really bad indeed. I think...i shud put more effort in it?But somehow just feels like so frustrated where i cant really understand y all those ST-ian can cope with it so easily.. so confidently when answering those damn diff question !Just like PA paper, i've mixed up all the dasar-dasar dalam negeri dan luar negeri; Biology is the subject of memorizing work,which is the thing that i lack the most; Chemistry i don even dare to get a B , hope to pass the boundary onli; Maths, paper 2, terrible, i dunno, i've reali prepare for it , memorizing all those formulae, trigo, geometry coordination, probability, differentiation equation, and the most killing, VECTORS !Perhaps what i need is do more exercise on it? Maths paper 1, at least , i think, it's easy, but somehow, too, i've 4got da integration paths, so, hopeless to answer those questions...Haiz..............
Recall today MUET paper, i think not much of us treat it as a paper rite?Everybody seems like just-want-to-finish-it-soon, and it's not counted in exam. So.....just cincai did it. I like the last passage, which is also the most difficult passage, which is also the one dat i have to use all my SPIRIT to read the words 1 by 1 and use all my ability to digest the meaning and so on....it talks about feminine, which differ from time to time.Interesting .
OK ! Fine!! Let's talk bout sth interesting...Wut happened in the juz-pass-week?Well, mayb it's bcoz of stress, (or internal hormone changes?)pimples keep on rushing out, everyday at different place, WHERE GOT FACE TO SEE PEOPLE?haha...
Last Sunday,went to Syuen Hotel to interview for a job at Genting Highlands with Meesan,but sad, i failed. i FAILED ! What a shame !! Haha...Actually, it's not fail lar, i get another job too, but the pay is different with RM400,so, i juz rejected it lar..Think of interv for a receptionist at first, but unfortunately they dun take in temporary worker at this time, so with no other idea, i and MeeSan interv for a job in casino...And when comes to the very last question :" Did your palm sweat?"Ya...i do..and i lost my job bcoz of sweating palm !haha.....................shameful..............
Well, on Wednesday morning, where i think me and my frens juz arrived at skool on time, but, a prefect, said :" Oh gals, i'm sorry to inform that u 3 are late today !" "What ? Not 7:20 onli we count as late?" "YA, and the time just passed." "Where got? My watch still pointing at 7:19 !" "But the fact is the school bell had odi ring." "So wut u want to do? " "I need to record ur name." So i prepared to let him jot down our names, at the same time... "Prefect, no no no, nevermind lah, juz late abit onli, nevermind lah..." HOOOO !! Our kindly MR HEE ! haha....how man is he..seems like acting like those "black society's boss", "missused" his power to set us free...haha......thx ya !I'll try my best to finish all ur chemistry question ge lar~~
Let me see see, wow, i've 1 week din meet wf my "male-goddess"! How is he ler? Got abit miss he tim...Opps...Mr J Square just flashed into my mind...yaya....almost 2 years din meet wf him, is he alright? Aikss.....Suffering from lovesickness tim..
Yeh, i noe i'm those kind of laziness, still watching and catching wf drama during the exam week, but just cant help myself falling into the dilemma..from Full House, now adapted to Lovers In Paris. Haha....cant imagine 朴新阳 with such serious face can act like a silly man in front of her mother-sister. When i saw him "kissing" the window at her mother-sister shop, i reali....haha...can u imagine? i think that time my contact can drop out easily and my mouth bcum O shape...beh tahan..And 金晶恩 quite pretty too ! I think she done plastic surgery izzit? She has a pair of smiling eyes...Like it !李东建, from beginning till the end (altot i haven finished) , he plays a sad character, makes me think of "The Rose"--韩葵.Sad..reali sad...Anywhere,it's a nice drama !But feeling abit bored in the middle, i like the Paris-part.
Today, Saturday, Malaysian Idol Stage 2 Finale. Daniel and Nita, who will be the next Malaysian Idol ?I dunno...Honestly, if compared with last year winner--Jackln Victor, this year contestants' standards are abit lower than previous. Anywhere, the top 2 contestants--Daniel and Nita, both having completely different styles of singing.Daniel is the kind of slow and smooth singer whereas Nita's voice is full of spirit and powerful, just like Jac. Since Daniel was the one who always have the highest votes from spectaculars, I hope he can win in the very critical juncture also. But somehow, in my heart, a tin voice keep telling me Nita was the one who is really talent and born to be a single, just like what Paul and Roslan said. But, I support Daniel, dunno y. He can plays instruments very well, he's been invited as Jay Chou's Concert "special performer".....Well...the result now not onli depends on the ability of singer but also the favour of spectaculars, we'll see on tomorrow nite.
她轻轻的用手抚摸着脖子上的心型钥匙项链, 那是英宰第一次向她表白的时候送给她的, 她永远记得那天他对她说的话…
[智恩…你知道我为什么那么喜欢这条项链吗..它是我在一个意大利的露天市场上,向老板出高价买来的非卖品..没有任何原因, 只因为它美丽的名字 “key to my heart”, 从那以后, 它就成了那把唯一能够打开我心扉的钥匙…曾经, 惠援说她非常喜欢它, 可是我一直都没有办法送给她, 当时我并不知道为什么, 不过现在我明白了, 因为能够住进我心里的只有那个能够让我笑, 让我痛苦, 让我爱到无法自拔的韩智恩…我说不清自己究竟是什么时候爱上你的, 不过智恩, You may have the key to my heart, for now and for ever…]当时, 智恩只是流着眼泪, 紧紧的抱住了英宰, 一句话都说不出来…他的这翻话带给了她太多太多的震撼与心酸, 一切都不再重要, 因为以后他们将永远拥有彼此的心…现在想起来, 智恩依然会感动的连眼睛都红红的…
