Love is Gentle Love is Kind


If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself
There is nothing wrong with you.
Love just didnt choose to rest in the other person's heart
If you find someone else in love with you and you dont love him/her, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse
the gift you cannot return.
Do not take advantage, do not cause pain.

How you deal with love is how you deal with you and all our hearts
feel the same pains and joys, even if our lives and ways are different.
If you fall in love with another and he/she falls in love with you
and then love chooses to leave, do not try to reclaim it or to assess
blame, let it go.
There is a reason and there is a meaning. You will know in time.

Remember that you dont choose love, love chooses you. All you can really
do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you, then reach out and give it away.
Give it back to the person who bought it alive in you.
Give it to others who deem it poor in spirit.
Give it to the world around you in anyway you can.

There is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love,
they understand love only as a need. They see their hearts as empty
places that will be filled by love and they begin to look at
love as something that flows to them rather than from them.

The first blush of new love is filled but as their love cools, they
revert to seeing their love as needs.
They cease to be someone who generates love and instead become someone
who seeks love.
They forget that the secret of love is that it is a gift and
that it can be made to grow only by giving it away.

Remember this and keep it to your heart. Love has its own time,
its own seasons and its own reason for coming and going.
You cannot bribe it or coerce it or reason it into saying.
You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to
you But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your
lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do.

Love always has been and always will be mystery.
Be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life.
If you keep your heart open, it may come again.

How Celebrity Desperate To Lose Weight For Film Role

Angelina Jolie is trying to lose 21 lbs in 21 days. The 33-year-old actress is reportedly desperate to shed weight for upcoming film "Salt," in which she plays a CIA assassin who is forced to disguise herself as a man.
A source said: "To play a man convincingly Angelina is adamant she needs to lose her curves."
Friends claim Angelina is so determined to look like a boy she has turned to the Martha's Vineyard Detox Diet to help shrink her already slender frame.
The extreme diet -(The Master Cleanse) which was popular in Hollywood in 2007 - encourages followers to ingest liquids every two hours to "cleanse the body." Solid food is strictly prohibited.




Angelina Jolie Arrested in City Centre Men in uniforms grabbed the mother of six under the arms in the city’s centre and led her in an unknown direction. Shooting of her upcoming film "Salt"



The Master Cleanse claims to be a way to cleanse the body of toxins.
The cleanse involves drinking only lemonade made from fresh lemon or lime juice, maple syrup, water and Cayenne pepper. No solid food is eaten for the entire cleanse. The Master Cleanse is technically not a fast; and proponents say it is more gentle on the body because it does contain some essential vitamins and minerals. According to proponents it is recommended to be on the cleanse for a minimum of ten days, but some people stay on the cleanse for longer periods of time, even as long as 45 days.

The cleanse can have tons of exhausting and gross side effects. This is what supposedly has movie execs on Jolie's new flick Salt so concerned. Angelina is supposed to do her own stunts as a CIA officer in the Russian spy movie, but producers are worried this silly diet is going to make her too tired and fragile to kick any serious ass.

UPDATE: 2 Apr 2009

Brad Pitt has demanded Angelina Jolie to marry him.



The 45-year-old actor - who has been dating Angelina since 2005 and raises six children with her - has reportedly told twice-divorced Angelina he will not have any more children with her unless she agrees to tie the knot.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "Brad's told her, 'Marry me, or it's over.' He definitely wants to get married before they have any more babies."
Brad - who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston - is said to be feeling increasingly frustrated with the lack of time he is spending with Angelina, 33.
He is currently staying in New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel with the children to be closer to Angelina, who is filming new spy movie 'Salt' in the city.
The source added: "Their relationship is so out of kilter, he believes marriage is the only thing that will bring it back around.
"He needs to know Angelina is really committed to him. Becoming Mrs. Pitt would give him that answer."
It was recently reported Brad had pleaded with Angelina to attend couples' counselling in a desperate bid to save their relationship.
Angelina is said to have agreed, but only after seeking the advice of her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton.
A source told Britain's Grazia magazine: "This just caused more friction with Brad because although he doesn't have a problem with her talking to her exes, he doesn't understand why she would take Billy Bob's advice to try therapy as when he suggested it to her she reacted very angrily."

45 Ways to become Alex Humphrey's Husband

Alex Humphrey says her efforts to find a spouse will form part of her degree from Leeds College of Art and Design. The project is scheduled to end in three months with Humphrey including her marriage certificate in her final art presentation, reported
The Sunday Times of London.

"I don't want to wake up when I'm 30 and think: oh my God, I'm on my own," said Humphrey, noting she is "looking for a relationship, not just a shag."
Humphrey narrowed responses from more than 150 men to a shortlist of 10 men with a sense of humor and as tall or taller than Humphrey.
There's a video interview with Ms Humphreys.
Her first date with Adam Mussett, 27, a student from Greenwich University went well. Still, Humphrey said she will date all 10 and may even fly to Chicago, where one prospect lives.

Annual Traditional Tattoo Celebration in Thailand

In no other country in the world except Thailand does the tattoo tradition have an annual religious celebration. Once a year, thousands of tattoo enthusiasts from around the world descend on the temple known as Wat Bang Phra, located 50 km outside Bangkok, where dozens of heavily tattooed Buddhist monks are masters of the tattoo art. This Wat is also known as the Temple of the Flying Tiger.

There are hundreds of traditional Thai designs, many of them animals, the tiger being the most popular. The lower back is the preferred location for this most powerful of motifs. Taking a tiger tattoo is to take on the tiger spirit, a spirit that will be in control of your life.

Unlike most tattoos in the West, the Thai version comes steeped in spiritual, or some might say superstitious, meaning. Protection, good luck, blessings from on high -- these are what the tattoo devotees are seeking. Many arrive already heavily tattooed and are there to simply get their designs 'recharged', by having the Buddhist monks re-bless their body art. During the festivities it is not uncommon for the tattoo devotees, through their chanting, to reach an extremely heightened state of consciousness, appearing to enter into a trance. Everyone arrives with gifts of incense and flowers for the tattooist’s venerable teacher.

Angelina Jolie submitted to the classical tiger treatment at the hands of venerated tattoo master, Ajarn Noo Kanphai in 2004.

A Thai Buddhist monk draws a traditional tattoo on the back of a devotee, during a tattoo festival at the Bang Phra Temple in Nakhon Chaisi, west of Bangkok on March 7, 2009. The temple, made famous by the late Buddhist monk Luang Phor Boon, hosts a yearly festival gathering hundreds of followers believing tattoos protect them against harm.

Deep-fried spiders for food in Cambodia



A vendor selling deep-fried spiders poses with a spider as she waits for costumers at bus station at Skun, Kampong Cham province, east of Phnom Penh March 14 ,2009. It costs $2 for 10 deep-fried spiders, which come seasoned with garlic. The fist-sized arachnids are crunchy on the outside and taste like cold, gooey chicken on the inside.



Deep fried spider snacks have put Cambodia in the news again. First eaten by starving people out of desperation during the Cambodian civil war of the 1970s, fried spiders have become one of the most popular snack foods, a national delicacy and have caused quite a stir in the culinary world.
The small crossroad town of Skuon, about 50 miles north of the capitol Phnom Phenh, is the famous spider town of Cambodia to where bus loads of people from the capitol flock for the famed snack. "We even get a few Europeans - usually they think it's disgusting but then they try one and find it's delicious," says Cham, one of a myriad of local spider vendors busy along the main highway.

Sim Yong, a 40-year-old mother of five who supports her family selling fried spiders says, "When people fled into the jungle to get away from Pol Pot's troops, they found these spiders and had to eat them because they were so hungry. Then they discovered they were so delicious..." Seasoned with garlic and salt they are fried in butter until crispy on the outside but gooey on the inside and served piping hot.

In Vietnam pregnant brides are considered to be good luck!


In the past, it was shameful for both families if the bride was pregnant before the wedding.Vietnamese mothers are familiar with the phrase: khon ba nam dai mot gio, meaning "a young woman will face a miserable life if she gets pregnant before her wedding." They often teach it to their daughters even when they are little girls.Pregnancy outside marriage was "a counter-symbol to the purity, chastity and beauty of the bride. The wedding gown couldnt hide the swollen stomach.

Now it is becoming a trend as fear of childlessness is forcing couples into conjugal relations early.

Now it is becoming a trend as fear of childlessness is forcing couples into conjugal relations early.
Hai, a worker of Thang Loi Textile Company in HCM City, recently divorced his wife after several years of not being able to conceive a child. In early 2009, Hai married a second time. Before the wedding, Hai’s mother boasted to her neighbours: “My daughter has been pregnant for two months. It’s so lucky!”

Hai’s case is becoming more and more popular in Vietnam as the rate of childless couples is rising. According to doctors of the Tu Du Obstetrics Hospital, cases of infertility are increasing due to men’s loose lifestyles when they are young and women’s poor knowledge of reproductive health.
Going to the Tu Du Obstetrics Hospital with his girlfriend, Doan from Le Hong Phong street, District 10, HCM City, was embarrassed when nurses called him “Mrs. Tuyet’s husband” because they aren't married yet.
Doan said he and his girlfriend had been in a close relationship for four years but his parents wouldn't allow him to marry her till the girl was pregnant.
The parents raised this requirement because the wife of Doan’s elder brother couldn’t have a child to maintain the continuity of his family. This “mission” was transferred to Doan so his girlfriend, Tuyet, has to get pregnant before marriage.
Up to 50% of childless cases are caused by men. But whenever a couple is childless, the wife is immediately suspected. Women suffer losses when they have to prove their “female ability”.

“Women have to face criticism from the public if they get pregnant before they are married. They miss the sweet period of marriage life because they have take care of their babies. Once they look back on their marriage life, they will not see any sweet period in their life,” said expert Xuan Loan from the HCM City Psychological Education Centre.
When a baby is a condition for a marriage, that relationship is an exchange.
“I am a machine to deliver babies to my husband’s family,” a young woman complained on an online forum. Loan affirmed that this wife’s self-respect was hurt.
Yet, not all women understand that by proving their ability to have a baby, they lower themselves.
Having a baby is the wish of all couples but getting pregnant before marriage to prove productive ability is a wrong way. Before marriage, a health-check ought to be enough for both sides.
“Let’s respect ourselves with effective and knowledgeable solutions,” expert Xuan
Loan advised.

Train travelling in China

For long distance traveling, trains are probably the most convenient way.Trains have four classes:Hard seat ,Soft seat, Hard sleeper and Soft sleeper.
The Hard seat is the cheapest way to travel. Cars are open, like in European commuter trains. Seats are arranged in 3 + 2 configuration, with seat groups facing each other. 110 seats per car. Comfort is like in a commuter train: The seats are not good to sit in for many hours. But this class is dirt cheap, and most Chinese people are in these cars. It is often crowded and dirty.










This train was travelling from Wulumuqi Station to Zhengzhou/ShangQiu a total distance of 3282 KM. The journey took 44 Hrs.
You have some trash? Most trains have no trash bins. Absolutely none! Throw the stuff on the floor (in soft sleeper, put it on the tray on your table). The conductor will come now and then and sweep the floor. In summer you may also open the window and throw the trash out. The conductors do that all the time, after sweeping your floor. Yes, this is horrible, but this is the way it works.
