My world has been forever changed by one man. I cannot and will not even begin to attempt to express the sadness I feel over his loss.
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

Today would be my last day in the US. Filled with a sadness in almost everything I do, from my last meal in Little Rock, cooking session, watching comedy clips on the computer, snuggling in bed.

Finally got my hands on the Chronicles of Narnia from the Barnes and Noble in Little Rock, and for only USD20. Will pen down some feelings about the book after I read it on the flight home. Also managed to procure the Yu-gi-oh 2004 World Championship Tournament for the Gameboy. Hopefully all these would make the flight home more bearable.
Watched a Bill Maher special Randall recorded on his PC. It was really funny, and somehow always contained some grain of truth in his jokes. Esp liked his description of how America is becoming more feminized, in TV shows and such.
