In Life there is no second take.

Yesterday I watch a show acted by Andy Lau called “Wait till you’re older”. I cried at the end of the show, I looked over to my sister and she was also sobbing. Not sure why nowadays I am a bit emotional. I read somewhere that the show is a remake of an English Movie call “Big” starred by Tom Hanks. I have not seen it but I am not sure will it have the same effect on me as the Cantonese version. Hence credits should still be given to the makers of the movie as it manages to find a path to my heart and manages to open up my tear ducts. The show starts with the story line concentrated on Kwong a young boy whose biological mum committed suicide and is living with his “Step” mum.

The fun starts when he drank an aging portion. He woke up as an adult and he enjoys his new found freedom and has some adventure. Along the way he “befriends” his lady teacher and his dad. From chats with his dad as an adult friend he managed to look at issues such as his relationship with his “Step” mom and his father love towards him in a different perspective.

As he grows older day by day he finally forgives his dad and “Step” mom after finding out who is really the 3rd party. He wants to return back to his young self and continue his life hoping to live happily ever after with his dad and his family. Thats where the old uncle (who invented the aging portion) says “Life has no second take”, once you pass it you are unable to go back.

Some say time can mend a broken heart but when something is broken it will forever stay broken. It could be glued up together but it will never be the same. We should do our best to ensure that its remains unbroken, scratch a bit here and there is still alright. Have you ever hold on to buying that particular blouse or shirt that was on displayed hoping for a better bargain later and finally its out of stock and the sense of regret sank it wishing that you should have bought it there and then. I have and I am still doing it…..still have not learnt my lesson….

I've seen BIG, it's a really nice movie to watch... also a little bit sad (touchy).

I must see this Andy lau one...

Yeah, me also become emotional especially since my dad died and I've experienced almost die.... so, I guess when we are getting older (wiser probably *grin*), we are having more thought and then often put ourselves in other ppl's shoes/situation.

Haven seen this show, can't recall if I have seen BIG.

Yup that does happen to me too. But money saved if waited a little longer. It is more like I don't need, I just want it. So i don't mind waiting for the price to drop.. hehehe..

But this does not apply to life. More care is to be applied in making decision. Else like Andy Lau movie, wrong move then can't go backward.

Monica, wow you cried at commercial...Oh now I remember there is one thai commercial that brings out a tear or 2 from me...

Selba, I guess you are right, as we grow older we experience more things, more happy things and more sad things...hence we could relate more..

Photocrazy, yeap sometimes until now I wish I could turn back the clock. Let me be just a just enough to survive for the month guy rather than slightly more than enough guy to goes through what I have goes through...
