Picking up...

Every attempt to swear off the Net fails abysmally.

Gotta shift up several gears.


If I Am Legend is about scaring the sh*t out of you, Eastern Promises promises to gore the SH*TE out of you.

No joke.

Alternatively, highly recommended if you would like your Significant Other to be hiding behind your shoulder for (some parts of) the movie.

Fabulous acting, especially Mortensen and Armin Mueller-Stahl as Seymon.

Of course, company was great, though I must apologise for falling asleep and letting out a snore during the movie - must have been damn embarassing.

Yah I know - Worse Man.

The vor v zakone Code

"...a thief must...

Forsake his relatives -- father, brothers, sisters...

Not have a family of his own -- no wife, no children; this does not however, preclude him from having a lover.

Never, under any circumstances work, no matter how much difficulty this brings; live only on means gleaned from thievery.

Help other thieves -- both by moral and material support, utilizing the commune of thieves.

Keep secret information about the whereabouts of accomplices (i.e. dens, districts, hideouts, safe apartments, etc.).

In unavoidable situations (if a thief is under investigation) to take the blame for someone else's crime; this buys the other person time of freedom.

Demand a convocation of inquiry for the purpose of resolving disputes in the event of a conflict between oneself and other thieves, or between thieves.

If necessary, participate in such inquiries.

Carry out the punishment of the offending thief as decided by the convocation.

Not resist carrying out the decision of punishing the offending thief who is found guilty, with punishment determined by the convocation.

Have good command of the thieves' jargon ("Fenya").

Not gamble without being able to cover losses.

Teach the trade to young beginners.

Have, if possible, informants from the rank and file of thieves.

Not lose your reasoning ability when using alcohol.

Have nothing to do with the authorities (particularly with the ITU [Correctional Labor Authority]), not participate in public activities, nor join any community organizations.

Not take weapons from the hands of authorities; not serve in the military.

Make good on promises given to other thieves.

Becoming a Russian Thief also quite "ma huan" leh.


Scenario: You "brushed shoulders with" 3 (maybe 4) ppl whom you have known from 3 different stages in your (short) life within 5 minutes in the same building.

Its like the past flashing by, here one instance, gone again the next.


Blew a fair bit on clothes and something interesting.

Gonna move house within the next couple of weeks.

Work (PT) gonna get hectic.

It's gonna get crazy.

Signing off................ 被爱爱人原来, 一样可悲。。。。。
