best 2006 foreign language film 2006

blood and bones, a very sad, violence film. This is a story of a Korean-Japanese family during the war era. warning: this film is for 18+ plus, and you need some guts to watch it. It is a great film. 99 cents from Hastings. review and comments will come later... BTW I have been watching 10+ films over the vacation... 10 more to go... : )

reading Ando

a great architect from Japan - Tadao Ando. My new hero, the spirit of pursuing his dream is just as admirable as his fabulous art. And in the mean time, I just got informed from a friend in Japan, she just passed the first level architect licensing. AWESOME! Way to go! Emi, congratulations!

spring time

11/30/09 Woke up at 3:40AM this morning. It seems the nerves still hanging on to the unresolved postdoc fellowship that I am applying. They should announce the grant receivers today, but I haven’t heard anything from the official website earlier. It’s a tortures. I wasn’t that nervous actually, sort of, because of the terrifying interview and comments I had received from the interview committee earlier this month. It is the worst experience of interview I have ever got, so far.
Anyway, I was up already, it seems the minor concern of the expected negative result still affecting me, at least to my sleep. I decided to give it a check of the internet again. I turned on the computer in the living room. It loaded up the major igoogle webpage with gmail column in it. It showed a new email with “Congratulations” from my Mom..?? “what is going on here?” I asked myself with a lot of question marks… follow the title, then the letter announced : Congratulations! Mark, You have received the grant successfully! We are so glad for you… A greeting letter from my mom! For real?! My mom never joking with me through the emails and I know they are more nervous than I do at this moment. So … this is for real?! I won’t doubt anything if this is the letter from the midday, but now it is 3:40AM. Am I in a dream again?! I called home, and there is my dad telling me this exciting news! Wow… unbelievable… Although I really want to believe them at this moment, I really want to make sure this is not a mistaken, kind of a bit worry, they are not very good at extracting information from the internet, just like me… They might find something illusion… ha… am I wrong and underestimate my parents… forget the extra worries , son! They have called and got the direct positive answer from the grant officer! It’s for real! Unbelievable! I feel I have used up all the good lucks of my life in this month. Harvard! I am coming!

global issues

Just went to the city library to get some books and films. I have heard those two DVDs for quite sometimes, but never had a chance to watch it. It's a very deep sorrow after watching it. Even you are a skeptic, being part of the global, you should watch it. Just check them out from the near library. Great films!

time to think about MP
