As I flip my papers to the next, I found some questions were already answered but I felt it's deceiving and figured rather than to trust them I need to read the ? and answer them correctly as possible. A colleague seated in front as me if we could share sure answers. Then I feel so pressured looking on my papers it seems that every answers was not put rightly on their respective questions. So I started to panic, no time, and I need to redo the exam.
just finished pasta lunch at the "default" cafe nearby and head back straight to office bringing bottled cafe and a pint of choco ice cream and that their caffeine would keep me awake this afternoon. half of the office people still asleep so the typing was done in deep silence.
note my watch is 10mins ahead of firm's official Beijing time.
Listening to Beastie Boys. Intergalactic Planetary...Planetary Integalactic...
Refreshed my inbox and received an email from a colleague who is leaving the office for good. After recollection of the the film Clockwork Orange, interrupted my silence and played Beethoven Symphony No. 9 with hope to finish it's entirety.
Still on the park, designing the east side.
the next day
I forgot about this lit already. Arrived the office early need to present a project to client today. colleugue is late.
Today, at the office, I need to finish a park in Wuhan, a hot city in China during the summery days. I am doing option 2 and yes you can call this a filler and plan is already a revision so we hope for miracles that client would like any of the 2 options.
Just sharing Wednesday thoughts. Now despise the preposterous me.
TWO good films today that took me to two cities of
The first one was called The Owl and Sparrow. Realesed in 2007, it was a story of three ordinary people who joined together by sheer love and compassion and the willingness to change and change for good in the emerging Vietnamese city. A tearjerker and a must see, this Stephane Gauger’s film proved again that simplicity could be a work of art. In this film, I admired Cat Ly, the only Vietnamese actress that I knew of and googled and found something revealing.
Late afternoon, I was streaming Go Lala Go! on Youtube cut in 9 parts. A romantic comedy with typical rags to riches as the film story’s foundation, this is China answer to Hollywood Sex and the City with ok bed scenes and The Devil Wears Prada as characters defined fashion and style with Chinese characteristic. Also, once in a while you’d see in the movie sponsors flashing here and there.
Sorry Gong Li, but I think Xu Jinglei (who played Lala and directed the movie), I think is the most beautiful Chinese actress living today.
Wala lang but the DB office building is the SOHO in
Happy Mother's day to my dear wife Joanna Marie Dupa-Pangilinan. The work you do, and the love you share home to my family and especially to Ezra is dearly appreciated. I say sorry for the absence in times you thought I should be there as a parent to Ez and a husband to you. Today, you are being well thought of in spite of distance, silence, and in spite of many in spite ofs. I wish you always the best in life and more happy and healthy days.
All the love, from Ezra and myself.
that's all for now!less is more.
