A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it.
He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns? Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom... it died.
So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The God-like qualities planted in us at birth, grow amid the thorns of our faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.
We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential.
Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.
This is one of the characteristic of love... to look at a person, know their true faults and accepting that person into your life... all the while recognizing the nobility in their soul. Help others to realize they can overcome their faults. If we show them the "rose" within themselves, they will conquer their thorns. Only then will they blossom many times over.

There was a rich merchant who had 4 wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to delicacies. He took great care of her and gave her nothing but the best.
He also loved the 3rd wife very much. He's very proud of her and always wanted to show off her to his friends. However, the merchant is always in great fear that she might run away with some other men.
He too, loved his 2nd wife. She is a very considerate person, always patient and in fact is the merchant's confidante. Whenever the merchant faced some problems, he always turned to his 2nd wife and she would always help him out and tide him through difficult times.
Now, the merchant's 1st wife is a very loyal partner and has made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and business as well as taking care of the household. However, the merchant did not love the first wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.
One day, the merchant fell ill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He thought of his luxurious life and told himself, "Now I have 4 wives with me. But when I die, I'll be alone. How lonely I'll be!"
Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I loved you most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No way!" replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word.
The answer cut like a sharp knife right into the merchant's heart. The sad merchant then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you so much for all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No!" replied the 3rd wife. "Life is so good over here! I'm going to remarry when you die!" The merchant's heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife, "I always turned to you for help and you've always helped me out. Now I need your help again. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?" "I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!" replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only send you to your grave." The answer came like a bolt of thunder and the merchant was devastated.
Then a voice called out : "I'll leave with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go." The merchant looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the merchant said, "I should have taken much better care of you while I could have !"
Actually, we all have 4 wives in our lives
a. The 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it'll leave us when we die.
b. Our 3rd wife ? Our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, they all go to others.
c. The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we're alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
d. The 1st wife is in fact our soul, often neglected in our pursuit of material, wealth and sensual pleasure.
Guess what? It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. Perhaps it's a good idea to cultivate and strengthen it now rather than to wait until we're on our deathbed to lament
More exciting than twilight.
Best fight scene than twilight.
Best love story..
The actress is sexier than before.. hehe
No comment for the actors..
No matter how hard i try to think
of any possibilities just to be
with you but
it wouldn't really happen.
Reality keeps us apart and i really
have to go.
Sometimes i made my self to believe
i have a chance but it was only my
Maybe i am really destined to leave
moving to the path where i belong.
However, there are so many questions
in my mind that i keep on asking
to myself, to no one or to Him.
Why do i need to leave?
Whats their purpose to me?
Why do i need to start when
i will not be able to finish?
Why not now?
Why i cannot understand?
When is help?
Why i need to leave?
I am a coward at this moment and
i admit i am defeated,I am feeling pain
and it able me to be weak and paralyzed.
I am leaving you soon and i don't
know when will i coming back.
Sometimes i hope that i have this numb
feeling so that it is easy to leave
you but our memories crushing my heart.
I am very weak without you.
I hope you will continue what we've started
before even without me.
We have our goals and i hope we can fulfill that.
I know I'll be missing you but it always
have it's purpose.
Is this goodbye?
Smile always my friend and take care.
This is the faith we must accept.
Pain! pain! pain!
What have you done my love?
You gave me sadness
That i cannot bare
My body melted by sorrow
That started my tears to fall
My heart shouted with grief
that burst every moment time after time.
No one now can understand me
No one can take this pain out of me
Your memory cause it all
like a needle around my heart
All i did was to love you
Confident that you love me too
But for a night you forgot me
leaving me alone and lonely
Have you change my love?
Why did not told me
That your heart was gone
I could brought it back!
Oh! help me someone!
Take me away this misery
Help me now! Heal me now
I'm weak very weak!
The effects was good highly recommended and the story as well.. While watching the movie I can't stop asking my self how they've done such great animation , very detailed and realistic. One thing, don't watch the movie if your companion cannot relate.. It's better to watch it whom both of you find it interesting. Mahal pud kaau 90!!!! hahay.. -pero sulit 2 hrs and 30 man pud... watch it...

A farmer is standing on one side of the river and with him are a wolf, a goat and a box with cabbages. In the river there is a small boat. The farmer wants to cross the river with all the three items who are with him. There are no bridges and in the boat there is only room for the farmer and one item. But if he leaves the goat with the cabbages alone on one side of the river the goat will eat the cabbages. If he leaves the wolf and the goat on one side the wolf will eat the goat. Only the farmer can seperate the wolf from the goat and the goat from the cabbage.
How can the farmer cross the river with all three items, without one eating the other ?

Two girls are born to the same mother, on the same day, at the same time, in the same year and yet they're not twins.
How can this be?
Tskk... very dissapointing! nobody got the correct answer!
obviously they are not twins because they may be a set of triplets or quadroplets or more.. hahhahaha
very good for those who got the answer!!!
What occurs once in every minute, twice in every moment, yet never in a thousand years?
