Final Destination

I believed most of you have watched "Final Destination" before (If u didnt, do watch it soon.. very very nice :p). It is actually considered the first movie to strike something in me and told myself not to be so worked up over things (Ok, most of the time, i am just plain lazy.. hee).

Basically, it is a movie where a bunch of high school kids managed to miss a flight to Paris, which in turn saved their lives when the airplane exploded in midair. However, thing turned for worse as one by one, each of them started to die. The surviving ones started to realise this and tried to save their lives.

I just watched it again recently to refresh my memory and the words by the mortician really left a deep impression (and those are almost the whole speech he had in the entire movie already..). Here's what he said:

"In death, there is no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps and no escape. What you have to realise is we are all just a mouse a cat had by the tail. Every simple move we make, from the mundane to the monumental, the red light that we stop at or run, the people we have sex with or wont with us, airplanes that we ride or walk out of, it's all part of death's sadistic design leading to the grave..."

Yes, that's the main thing that hit me when i first watched this movie way back in 2000. That no matter what we do, how rich we are, how happy we are, how evil we are... we will still die one day.. This may sounded pessimistic to you but to me, this mean logical.

You may say that this is precisely the reason why we should be happy, to start doing things that we wont have regrets about, to start believing in God... bah bah bah... No offence, but i prefer to think it my way...

So that probably means that i prefer to be a pig and just laze around most of the time... That's what made me happy and carefree.. Of cos i will add in some excitement once in a while lah, like having a outing with friends, going shopping, etc..

I wont deny that all this are hindered by the capital "M", which is the main reason why i am now having a job (and to stop my mom's and brother's non-stop nagging). But that is not really a main concern for me.. Ask any of my friends and you will know that i spend like there's no tomorrow, i barely have any savings.. But i dont care.. ( Well, unless i'm making plans to go somewhere for a tour..)

Money is not so much a temptation to me since all i ever do is to "throw" it away into someone else's pockets.. That's why when my insurance colleagues used money to tempt me to stay on, i wasnt moved... haha.. But i did joined initially due to the money (Bad gal!!).. Hmph.. i seemed to be contradicting myself in this same paragraph hor.. haha.. time to sleep.. really bahaving like a piggy recently.. yesterday, i slept 10 hrs plus, even to the extent of forgetting to eat dinner.. Yes, i was that tired bah.. Okay.. nitey~~

  • Agree. You can be the queen, but once death's here, it's still ashes to ashes and dust to dust.

    My mentor once asked me, "How much is enough?"

    Seems like that's a question that everyone asks themselves in their whole life...
