Hi All

Just to let you know, things havent been going too great with my health lately and fluid had built up again in my lungs.

The doctors have tried to treat me at home but unfortunately the medication that i have been given has had some bad effects.  My potassium levels have dropped a lot and my kidney functions have deteriorated.

So my consultant wants me in hospital so they can monitor me daily and see if there are other methods they can use to help me.  So tomorrow (22nd June) i am  being admitted to hospital.

Dont worry, they will look after me well.

The bedside TV / Internet units have basic internet so i can still check occasionally on my feeds etc. 

Take care all

Movie Reviews

Hey Hey

Just a little review of some movies I have watched recently.

1. Storm Warriors - The evil warlord Lord Godless wants to conquer China. He threatens the General in command into surrender, takes the Emperor captive in order to get the Dragon Bone  He also subdues the martial arts masters using his special poison. Martial arts Master Nameless is injured as he tries to defeat Lord Godless, but escapes with Cloud and Wind.  As Nameless is too injured to fight Lord Godless, he sends Cloud and Wind to persuade Lord Wicked to help.

I loved everything about this movie; from the effects; to the fight scenes; to the excellent acting from Ekin Cheng, Aaron Kwok, Nicholas Tse, Simon Yam and Kenny Ho.  The ending is very unexpected and leaves you wanting more.

My rating for this movie is 10 out of 10.


2. Ninja Assassin - Raizo has been trained since childhood to be a lethal killer. Raizo forms a romantic attachment to a female ninja within his clan. Unfortunately she wishes to escape the clan and is executed as a traitor after trying to escape one night. He then begins to feel resentment towards his master and clan.  After his first assassination Raizo is ordered to kill a fellow ninja who has also tried to escape the clan, but he rebels and escapes and  now seeks revenge for their heartless murders

This movie was excellent, action packed from the word go.  Fight scenes were excellent and very bloody.  Rain was fantastic as Raizo; very cold and ruthless. Sho Kosugi very convincing as the cruel and ruthless Lord Ozunu who is the leader of the Ninja Clan.


My rating for this movie is 9 out of 10.


  1. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - Percy discovers he is a demi-god and is the son of Poseidon.  Also is suspected of stealing Zeus's Lightning Bolt; and more worrying for him his mother has been kidnapped by Hades.  Percy and his friends go on a cross-country quest  to find enough Persephone's pearls to go to the Underworld and save his mom, and catch the true lightning thief therefore preventing a war between the Gods.

If you like Greek Mythology (and I do) then this is a fun movie for you as they integrate some of the myths loosely into the movie.  The movie had very good CGI, cool action scenes, and often a very witty script.  Uma Thurman excelled at being a very cool looking but menacing Medusa.

My rating for this movie 8 out of 10.



If you watch these movies I hope you enjoy them every bit as I did.

Matane you lovely people.

AnD, Reni Wong Designs, the weather, and New Year

Hey Hey

Oh my.... I am such a lazzzzzzzzzzy blogger, lol. 

I received a lovely parcel from Hong Kong on Tuesday, took pictures of its contents and haven't blogged til now about it.

Earlier this month I ordered a couple of things designed by Reni Wong from the AnD store, it came quicker than I thought it would.

Well I got to admit I was more than pleasantly surprised by my purchases. They are even more cute in real life than the pictures show them to be.

^  My i2 Puppy Set ...... They are just sooo kawaii, and larger than I thought they would be.

^ My Pair of Zodiac Figures .... I must have clicked on the wrong pair (LOL), I meant to order the Dragon and Rooster.... Myself being born in the year of the Rooster and I have a friend I could give the Dragon too.  Doesn't matter though I have another friend I can give the Ox too, and the Mouse well I'm gonna keep that for myself cause its just tooo cute! LOL

With my parcel I also got 2 cool stickers and 2 info cards.



The weather here has been really quite bad the last week and a half.  Constantly snowing every single day.  Plus side to it though, we had a "White Christmas".  But now its just not going away.

^Taken just before 1am on Christmas Morning.

^Taken on Tuesday 29th December just after 3pm.

^ Still snowing !!!!!!!

LOL OK I know ...... I live in Scotland, I have to expect this kinda weather, but come on we need a break from the constant dull grey skies and falling snow (just one day even lol).


Well its just after 4pm here on Hogmanay (Scottish word for the last day of the Year) and there is less than 8 left of this year to go.  Hmm I wonder who will be my First Footer (1st person to enter your house in the New Year).

So with that I would like to say to everyone on AnD :

Happy New Year !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope 2010 brings you all happiness and everything you wish for !!!

A beautiful sight,

St. Andrews Day - 30th November

Hey Hey

Happy St. Andrews Day !!!

Story of St. Andrews Day :

The Saltire is Scotland's national flag which is the oldest flag in Europe and the Commonwealth, and it has its origins in a battle fought in East Lothian in the Dark Ages. Its believed that the battle took place in 832AD. An army of Picts under the High King of Alba, and aided by a contingent of Scots had been on a raid into Lothian and were being pursued by a larger force of Angles and Saxons under one Athelstan. The Scots were caught and stood to face their pursuers in the area of Markle, near East Linton, north of the modern village of Athelstaneford. Fearing the outcome of the encounter, the Scots' King led prayers for deliverance, and was rewarded by seeing a cloud formation of a white saltire (the diagonal cross on which St Andrew had been martyred) against a blue sky. The king vowed that if, with the saint's help, he gained the victory, then Andrew would thereafter be the patron saint of Scotland. The Scots did win, and the Saltire became the flag of Scotland.

The Saltire (National Flag for Scotland)


The Thistle - National Flower of Scotland

The prickly purple thistle was adopted as the Emblem of Scotland during the rein of Alexander III (1249 -1286). Legend has it that an Army of King Haakon of Norway, intent on conquering the Scots landed at the Coast of Largs at night to surprise the sleeping Scottish Clansmen. In order to move more stealthily under the cover of darkness the Norsemen removed their footwear.

As they drew near to the Scots it wasn't the only thing hiding under the cover of darkness. For one of Haakon's men unfortunately stood on one of these spiny little defenders and shrieked out in pain, alerting the Clansmen of the advancing Norsemen. Needless to say the Scots who won the day.


Hope you enjoyed a little bit of scottish folklore/history

Song Translations

Hey Hey

For those of you who know me well, you will know my love of Gackt's Music. Earlier today i was doing a clear out of a couple of folders where i keep some stuff i print off the internet.

I found the translation to one of my many faves of Gackts songs.. Todokanai Ai to Shitteita no ni Osaekirezu ni Aishitsuzuketa.

~English Translation~

Even though I know that my love will never reach you, I continue to love you uncontrollably...

The days I spent with you were like a sweet dream

I thought that I would never lose them, but...

"I'm not the one reflected in your eyes"

Hanging my head low, I couldn't say anything to you

Even though I know that my love will never reach you

I continue to love you uncontrollably

I want to hold you in my arms one more

And never let you go again

You touched me gently, just a little shy

In the wavering light between the trees, you are no more than the ephemeral summer heat

Even now I hold onto the warmth that you left behind in my heart

Even though they warn me that the warmth will never return...

Even though I know that my love will never reach you

I continue to love you uncontrollably

If I could only meet you here once more

I wouldn't let you go again

I'll never forget your smile

I kept calling out your name until my voice ran dry...

Even though I know that my love will never reach you

I continue to love you uncontrollably

I want to hold you in my arms one more

And never let you go

I will never let you go

Such beautiful lyrics... Although my fave Gackt song is Love Letter

~ English Translation ~

Smiling at me with gentleness,

You are beside me unfailingly even now

If we close our eyes, there, the myriad of seasons

Starts to envelop us gently

What awaits us at the end of the long journey

No one knows but

Unsettling nights will never come again

For eternity

Two of us together, we’ll be able to keep on walking

Tightly held in my heart

The feeling will not change. There is just one thing…

"I love you"

You were like a tiny flower fluttering in the gentle breeze,

The day I first met you is so long ago

We were so young and there were days we hurt each other

But now those are memories that we can laugh about together

Don’t forget the vows we are making each other

Because you're more precious than anyone else...

Let's fulfill our dreams a little at a time...

For eternity

Two of us together, we’ll be able to keep on walking

Tightly held in my heart

The feeling will not change. There is just one thing…

"I love you"

For eternity

Two of us together, we’ll be able to keep on walking

Tightly held in my heart

The feeling will not change. There is just one thing…

"I love you"

"I love you..."

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do

Matane you lovely people
