Zindagi Kuch Toh Bata
O, Life, Tell Something (About Yourself)
~ from the Bollywood movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). I was smiling (and crying) all throughout this movie. Seriously, if you haven't seen this movie yet, then I highly recommend that you do so. I haven't seen a movie this GOOD in a very long time. One of the best that Bollywood can offer. Very uplifting. A story of magnanimity triumphing over pettiness. Just listen to that soundtrack!

Unmasking IS/ISIS/ISIL
~ by George Washington from Zero Hedge
~ “George Washington” suggests that you grab a cup of coffee (or a shot of booze) before embarking on this Saturday-night/Sunday-morning read. Did this come as a surprise? To me, the answer is yes and no. After all, the cat has been going in and out of the bag for quite sometime now. Regarding the IS, there are a few pieces of info here and there, and also certain clues and hints coming from on high (out of all places!). “George Washington” attempts to piece the puzzle together, from what can be presently garnered out of the media, both mainstream and alternative. He cites his sources well, meaning it's all out there. As such, it can't be an entirely conspiratorial cockamamie. Governments have long been known to plant extreme false flag events in order to justify a desired outcome. At present, this takes the cake.

I'm somewhat a product of '80s music, and I thought "With You I'm Born Again" by Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright is a song that can induce joyful tears by its prayerful ode to, ...what else?, being born again. (Nothing to do with religion, btw.) I find it very down to earth, not cheesy at all, and a powerful statement that love can bring change. After all, Love, and only Love, CAN BRING change. Cynics, laugh away.

Ten to Eight (1977)

Ten to Eight

Early in the morning when you wake up
And your sleepy head is into make up
When you gaze into your mirror
While you paint your face

And you check your eyelashes
Making sure they're in place
And you mind wanders up
Into another time

And you think of him
And how it should have lasted
While the disc jockey man
Gives you the weather forecast

And then he makes you feel so mellow
While he gets you high
And you remember how we laughed
And how he made you cry

Then you look into your mirror
And as you brush your hair

Brush your hair to the rhythm of
The music playing on your radio
Paint your face while you listen
To the talking of the jockey On the early morning show
Put your troubles in
The back of your mind
Cause the temperature
Outside is just fine

And it's ten to eight
And you ain't got the time

So you walk across your room
And start to make your bed
Then you slip into your jeans
Your eyes still feel like lead

And the memory seems to vanish
But the thought's still there
Tell yourself you don't
But deep inside, you still care
Deep inside, you still care

And it's ten to eight
And you ain't got the time

The first time I went here was after a day's hard work. I was so exhausted, muscles aching, and was just ready for anything to eat. I was thinking 隨便吃, then head home, clean myself up and plop into bed. Yes, I came in here not expecting much, but their beef noodle actually took me by surprise. Not only was it tasty, but right after finishing the bowl, I felt totally rejuvenated and uplifted. Since then, I've visited this place a number of times. Their main offering is Taiwan-style 牛肉麵 (Taiwan Beef Noodle Soup, as opposed to Beef Ramen Soup). They also have side dishes costing $50 NT per plate (tofu, shrimp rolls, beef cutlets, etc.). The soup base is not as strong as 69, but I thought it was just right. If you like your soup with a strong, Chinese medicinal taste, then you might find the soup here underwhelming. But still, the meat is always tender and the noodles al dente. This is important. With the exception of another place (the one near the intersection of 春日路 and 雙峰路), I actually prefer this very simple, roadside, family-run 牛肉麵店 from the others in the surrounding areas. 老闆娘 is very lively (sorry, I'm a sucker for great customer service), and there is a granny who sits in the area watching her grandchildren do homework during the evenings. Don't forget to greet her when you do drop by.

Very good menu offerings with a variety of Chinese medicinal chicken soups. Also has some fried dishes. Friendly service, clean, and just really good-for-the-soul hot chicken soup. Price range for a set meal is OK. Good for taking visitors to a casual but healthy, nothing-too-fancy and down-to-earth meal. Or, if you are feeling under the weather, this is the place for you. Highly recommended.

Don't expect some world-class attraction here. The place definitely needs upgrading. The dolphin/sea lion show was just ok, and the aquarium exhibits were so-so. But overall, the whole place could use a lot more scope. To their credit, though, the customer service was really very friendly. You can sense the heart behind their smiles. I hate giving this review three stars because the staff was really friendly. Heck, even the dolphins and the seals were wearing their warm hearts out on their sleeves.... er, fins. But as things stand, as of writing, the whole place really do need some major improvements. For starters, they could consider enlarging the fish tanks and putting in more exotic fish. Put in a whale, for heaven's sake. They could also redo the whole place to make it look new. I think effort should be applied to lift this place up from its local-grade position. My two cents.
