By the way, I give Bangkok Dangerous a thumbs down.. Bad script and storyline.. Even Nicholas Cage's good looks couldn't save this one :)
Happy Deepavali ya'all !!

Open your heart when someone comes knocking
Let it breathe fresh and clean air
Let it heal clogged pathways and messed up minds
Let it not refill the same cracked space again
But occupy a new compartment in your heart
For the past cannot be changed
But the future does not need to be built on the past
But a new space
In my heart
Anyone who reads this post can smack me once on the head...

One of my former student saw me in my office today and said I was the best physics lecturer ever. Okay, okay.. maybe that's a tad too far.. I'm sure there are better lecturers here. Nevertheless I am happy because it showed I did a decent job with the students I was teaching and not messed their brains up.
Career wise I'm still not sure where does it lie. I'm waiting to see what opportunities presents itself, be it further studies or another job.

I thank for no one was hurt
I thank that it was only money and not blood
I thank for this to happen when I'm at this age
When I'm old enough to think and learn from it
And young enough to avoid the same mistake again in the future
Nothing ever prepares you for the first time
But the first time prepares you for all time

That was the time i punched in for work today..
I was late..
I woke up at 0755, bath and brushed my teeth in 3 minutes, clothes in half a minute, and off!
0814 can be considered early since it takes 12 minutes to drive to work..
Coincidentally, its the first time I'm changing my phone alarm tune from Flow Rida's Low to a Salsa Merengue Mix. That must have been the reason.. Or maybe another factor played a part.. :p
Carried a cat out of the office when I did reach.. And a work-less Saturday ensues..

Anyways, that was just my thoughts for the moment. I leave you with Rudyard Kipling's 'If'.. A poem i enjoyed reading in English literature in my schooling days.
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!
