Because it is there.

After being asked repeatedly by reporters in New York City while on a lecture tour why he wanted to climb Mount Everest, George Mallory is famously said to have replied, "Because it is there." He later said that he didn't recall ever making the remark, and if he did, it was merely a quip to deal with a "foolish question" from an ignorant reporter: nonetheless, the quote is forever associated with Mallory, the mountain and mountain climbing.


religion is too commercialized. if u ask me.. never in my life can i even imagine people singing in e hall used for praying... i bet e a thousand of years, no one could even have imagined a place so full of mystery & holiness can be used for such blatent commercialized events with no respect.

guess what, if everyone is so anal about prophecies, this is what i believe. our stupidity is going to kill us,one way,or another...

Let your arms enfold us
Through the dark of night
Will your angels hold us
Till we see the light

Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

u make me smile everyday
even though sometimes u're e one who makes e most noise.

u're always there without fail,
giving me assurance whenever i'm in distress
"because i want u smile, i want make u happy"

with ur childlike innocence, u try to understand e complexities of e adult world
so that u can give those around u comfort & strength
"nvm ms yeo, u try harder nxt time, do ur best"

he was e only one out of e whole lot, who bothered to care abt someone else besides himself, who remembered to pester me everyday abt my interview results, who knew how to keep e best things for his teachers to show his appreciation. he always assured me that i was his BEST FRIEND and made sure tt i am happy when he's in my class.

and when he knew abt e results he was so happy for me that he started announcing it to everyone he knew, screaming in excitement because he knew that once i got in for e interview i "will be highness", which is his way of understanding & expressing moving up e hierarchy system as compared to a relief teacher, & then i wldn't have to relief other classes.

how can a child, who is 10 years younger than u r, & who has experienced much less than u have, have so much strength, wisdom & maturity?
how can a child, who is only in P2 teach u so much & give u e affirmation that u so needed to live life the way it was & continue to believe despite e darkness that there will always be hope.

and if u tell me now that angels do exist, i will believe that this special one is the one looking out for me :D

감사합니다, Lee In Hyeok

I know God has done something special for me. He kissed my vocal cords...

everything happens for a reason

i've been very involved in religion recently... as in..
thinking alot abt it recently. i have issues with alot of things, traditional ideas that u just can't let go easily. there'll be times i'm so sure that i can just be self sufficient but there are times where i just need to believe that someone is looking out for me. just someone, no matter how things will turn out.

my korean student has recently had enough of my atheistic belief & made me promise him, with stamp + chop *u noe e kiddy stuff, rolls eyes* tt i will read e bible, pray to god, & believe in god or else he will wreck havoc in my class. of course under such circumstances, i had to promise him since it's too early to get it across to him how e religion thing really works out & abt respecting free will.

life is back to normal, for now. just that i can't finish marking my stuff. so here i'm advertising for a teacher aid, u'll be paid handsomely ie. $0.10/hour since my pay is nt very high.


back to e crazy showbiz world, my ex-idol seems to doing not so well
in other words, "deranged"

her MTV comeback was such a blast that critics are raving abt it. u can watch her fantastic dance here o.o

Cheer Up, Vanessa Hudgens

E! News Now brings you the details on the scandalous Vanessa Hudgens picture...and we feel absolutely terrible for her. We can totally see her locked in her room, crying into her pillows, vowing never to show her face in public again, while Zac gently knocks on the door, cooing, "Babe...babe, can I come in?"

But don't stress too much, Vanessa, you can stand under our umbrella. We have a special place in our cold hearts for the HSM gang and will do anything to cheer you up. So, remember:

  1. The High School Musical 2 soundtrack is number one on the charts and will be for weeks to come.
  2. You’re supercute and have Zac Efron all to yourself.
  3. This will blow over. Lindsay or Britney will do something stupid, and we won’t even remember this in a week. That’s the beauty of the Internet—one hour equals about 3.7 months.
  4. Remember another Vanessa's naked picture scandal? Williams, that is. She’s doing well and looking hot today.

We're sorry it sucks for you right now, but trust us, it’s way more humiliating when your naked picture is online and no one cares.

islam & christianity. HURHURHUR

Missionaries from South Korea travel to remote & dangerous lands, intent on spreading their Christian faith. Christianity contributed to modernization in South Korea, and missionaries often link their beliefs with the country’s miraculous economic growth. In July, the Taliban kidnapped 23 young Christian volunteers in Afghanistan, killing two before releasing the remaining hostages in late August. Conditions of release include South Korea withdrawing all its missionaries & NGO workers from Afghanistan. The incident, including a Taliban claim that the South Korean government paid a ransom, has divided churches & the public at large – and could trigger debate on the proper role of churches in international affairs. The US has stressed that its war on terror, started in Afghanistan after the September 11, 2001, attacks, is not a war against Islam. But Christian missionaries enter conflict-ridden Islamic nations on the heels of invading troops, raising questions among Muslims. Preaching – and expecting people to abandon lifelong beliefs – is not a priority for war-torn nations.

overzealous... is e word tt comes to mind when i think of these ppl...
is it really god's calling? or rather a lack of respect for other's religion & beliefs...



dress rehearsal

The day I dropped out of college, I remember lying on my bed. My mother came into my room, and she'd been crying. She stared at me for a long time and then she said, "You only have one shot at life, Georgia. This is no dress rehearsal." And I said, "You know what, Mom? Maybe I don't even want to be in the play." A month later I was killed. I wonder sometimes if someone was listening.

That night, a man was killed by a speeding car and I was there to take his soul. The street on which he died turned into a flowing river of light, and he hesitated at its banks. I told him to take a deep breath as if its the last one you will ever take, because sometimes in life, or in death I guess, you just never know.
~ Dead Like Me

when is the point of time in life, when u start to realised tt there's so much things in life u haven't done, and there's so much to life tt u haven't lived yet...

this explains it :


It is said that a Christian who goes through life with no difficulty has God's favour. If the same Christian who were to through a time of difficulty and declares that it is God's fault, he/she has no understanding of 'favour' as favour is also found in times of difficulty.

today was crazy... if u know what i mean...
and today holds alot of promises for the future.
love from family members, my future wife and msges frm close friends makes it even more special.
thank you for spending this wonderful day with me. :D

i'm drained...

e egg tastes like shit. who do u blame? e hen or e cook?

i don't understand why ppl try to declassify or ungroup e black sheeps of e flock when others label these ppl as being guilty.

aren't u, by human nature, supposed to stand up for them even they've done smthing wrong?
or if nt, r u tryin to shrink away or deny knowledge abt them when smone's found guilty?
or maybe, they're just nt part of ur "league" so it's really their own fault for being an asshole.

i mean, if so many black sheeps are appearing e flock, who do u blame? the sheep for being black or the shepherd who fed e sheeps weird stuff tt turned most of their furs black?

here's smthing to make everyone happy! u can't deny tt he's just cute with a twinkle in his big blue neon eyes. only my mother thinks he's fugly BLEAHX.

Angus the Cook: Who's complaining about the eggs?
Rube: Oh, no complaints, just observations.
Angus the Cook: Such as?
Rube: The eggs are not good. Its normally a moot point at the a la carte price of $2.95. I love eggs. I love 'em fried, scrambled, soft-boiled, florentine. These I didn't like. So who do we blame - the hen or the cook?
[Angus has a very sour look]
Rube: Let's blame the hen.
[Angus walks away]
Rube: He's a nice guy.

You're Still You - Josh Groban

Through the darkness
I can see your light
And you will always shine
And I can feel your heart in mine
Your face I've memorized
I idolize just you

I look up to
Everything you are
In my eyes you do no wrong
I've loved you for so long
And after all is said and done
You're still you
After all
You're still you

You walk past me
I can feel your pain
Time changes everything
One truth always stays the same
You're still you
After all
You're still you

I look up to
Everything you are
In my eyes you do no wrong
And I believe in you
Although you never asked me to
I will remember you
And what life put you through

And in this cruel and lonely world
I found one love
You're still you
After all
You're still you
