When I saw the clown scenes from a beautiful yet depressing French animation, L’Illusionniste (2010), I suddenly remembered a story which I read somewhere long time ago:
There was a certain man who always feels sad and depressed. He tried everything to please himself but life just seems against him all the time. One day, he made an appointment to see a psychologist to cope that problem. The day he met the doctor, he told him to go to a famous circus in town and see a legendary funny clown, whose acts and jokes would never disappoint anyone. The man was silent.. and said “Doctor, that clown is me..”
Whenever I listen to them, I’ll always feel such beautiful, nostalgic moments, which in fact, are not (and would never be) parts of my life.
(And then I think I was born in the wrong era, again.)

A sneak peek of my new experiment. Hehe :-)
One of the best moments from Gurinder Chadha’s Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging, a very lovely coming-of-age film that has been recommended by my little sister. Libby, the little sister of the main character was such a cutiepie, and she really reminds me to the one who recommended me to watch this film, Lintang. And what made Libby more awesome was that she thinks she’s part cat. Very adorable and eccentric at the same time.
I’m sitting in front of my laptop, trying to get done with all the tasks I must finish within this week. And suddenly here came a small insect settling down on the surface of my laptop monitor. I wasn’t distracted by it, yet this bored feeling drove me to ‘have fun’ with it. So I started to follow where the little creature goes with my cursor. When it walks, I move my cursor to follow it, then when it stops, I stop my cursor as well. The little one seemed confused, but funnily, it seemed like it had fun too.
Maybe I sound crazy but I found happiness that refreshed me a little from such simple thing. Or perhaps it is just okay to be crazy once in a while.. in order to be happy.
