Re: Topics for 11/04

Hey, Nick, these are great topics. Good job. Though I know it's a piece of cake for you.

The couple in the first video really love life and were really in love; they decided to have a baby even when the husband were going to die soon. At first, I thought it's kind of selfish because the daughter wouldn't have the father. And since the lady is going to remarry, why bring a kid to the next marriage? But then I remembered that these people are totally out of my league. It is not a problem for them. 8)

Hello Rock,

You are too kind. If someone is generous, then it might inspire us to copy what they have done.
I like these videos too. See u Saturday~~

For me, the interesting things of the Three Kingdoms is that main actor(司馬懿) only shows up at second half of this story.
The TV series of the Three Kingdoms is good.
When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

I think the director has his own interpretation of the story. Compared to low profile Sima Yi, Zhuge Liang is being a smart ass for sometime.
However, Zhuge Liang is an idealist who wants to restore Han dynasty. Sima Yi is a pragmatist who is totally unrestrained by conventional morality.
Unlike Sima Yi only loyal to himself, Zhuge Liang is loyal to his master as well as his master's ambition.
