    I miss the life/society prior to Sept. 11, 2001. Life/society back then was so much better.

    Why not? Pho is yum! Love thin spring rolls as well! What is that dish with beef wrapped in leaves?

    I agreed. That's why childhood is generally the best part of one's life.

    I'm on a strict carb diet for now. Beef wrapped in leaves....what type of Asian ethnic food is that? There's some that I know beef wrapped in leaves. If you can find a picture of it, somebody or I may know.

    Here it is! Ba La Lot! Beef grilled in lemon grass and then wrapped in betel leaves! Delicious! Easy to find but not all shops do it well!

    I have nightmares of Charbydis running after me like a loan shark asking me to reply to her email. Though I thought for sure I had replied, but now I must write a reply.....tomorrow morning.

    Interesting dream.

    Do one know his/her future life after death? How's about previous life?

    I used to have this recurring dream where I was in a junkyard of some sort with short people rooting around. This was immediately followed by a flash of light, and then darkness. I don't remember if the flash of light was in the darkness or the darkness came after the flash of light but I couldn't breath after that like there was a heavy weight pressing down on my chest. Panic builds as I try to draw breath but can't before it reaches the point where I wake up. This happened enough times that I would recognize the scenario when it starts but still found myself unable to change things despite telling myself that "this time it will be different".

    Also had another odd and vivid dream where I was in some sort of port town with a dusty dirt road and old weathered buildings. I'm playing with some kids, and then I decide to go home. Evidently home is located on the side of a bridge or overpass that looks out to the sea. I hop over the side of the road on the near side of the bridge and run down hill through broad leaf plants and maybe some scattered trees to an old house. Not sure why but I feel that this is my house, and that my family is there.

    Now it's possible I'm just remembering something from a TV show or movie but I can't place it.

    You: I survive somehow
    HK47: As do I. It is our lot in life I suppose master. Shall we find something to kill to cheer ourselves up?

    Interesting account.

    When I am much younger, sometimes, I dreamt of new places. When I really went to new places, at times, I wondered whether these were reflected in my dreams before.

    I stop eating process food and eat organic food instead. I eat more vegies, good carbs (no more Asian white rice, but brown instead), and stop eating pork. No pop/soda and junkfood. But most important of all, I work out. Of course, there are days when I cheat and have my favorite subway sandwich.
