a movie for the people, by the people

I love this clip of a little girl who climbs a human castle in the small town of San Jaume dels Domenys in the Spanish province of Tarragona.
Shot by Toniu Xou and Patricia Martinez del Hoyoa of Spain.

covo at fort street

My friends and I referred to this place as our COVO
our meeting place, our safe heaven, our living room. 

as i still can't decide what to eat...
*a monologue*~ "pasta or pizza?"

the italian: take the pasta, it's fresh.
jade: so, your pizza is not fresh?
the italian: no no.. the pizza is from ...1960-something.

ended up i took their specialty.
can't remember the name but it has something to do with prawns.
According to Google translate, "covo" means,
1. den
2. lair
3. nest
4. haunt
5. earth

But according to us, it's a place for us to have our "LAST DINNER" *.
1. 19 January 2011, Wednesday
2. have a safe flight, Bryan.
3. have a safe flight, Jade. (roflmao)
anyway, the food at covo is delicious authentic italian. 
just that it's cook by a japanese who speaks japanese and italian.
but it's awesomo!
A MUST EAT is their chocolate souffle | $10  
it's  one of the best desserts i had in nz.

sometimes you just wish you could help.
but you are in a position where you cannot do anything.

a family friend's daughter,
i think she's 7 years old.
she just fb chat with me.
(ok, kids nowadays have fb and all the latest technology in their hands)

she told me, 
"i am not happy"

and i asked her,
"why are you not happy? :("

she answered, 
"coz mami not go to penang."
(because mummy will not be going to penang 
- this chinese new year)

chinese new year;
a time where family members come together.
will not be the same for her.
how can you have your mom in one place and dad in another?
...when it is not because of jobs but egos.

not just during chinese new years,
but every other days.
screaming at each other,
instead of talking.
even though you have the gift of 'loudness',
there can never be a winner in this game.

i wonder why sometimes parents are just so plain selfish.
all they think of is just themselves.
what about their kids?
they have feelings too.

the question is,
"where is the love?"

*think about it*
With love,

this is it!
