The concept reminds me of the movie “Passengers” starring Anne Hathaway.
Jack (Matthew Fox) was told near the end in the so-called alternate universe by his equally dead father Christian (John Terry), “Everything that has ever happened to you is real … there is no ‘now’ here … this is the place you all made together so you could find one another … the most important part of your life was the time you spent (on the island) with these people (who are waiting for Jack in a church) … you needed all of them and they needed you.”
Events in the two Lost worlds from the final season – the world of the island and the alternate universe on the mainland – edged toward their ultimate melding.
More and more of the alternate-universe people started to have memories of the island, and old friends popped up left, right and centre. We admit, we teared up a little when Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) and Claire (Emilie de Ravin) remembered each other, right after Claire had a baby (yes, again). Same thing when Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) remembered each other, minus the baby.
On the island, Jack – the new official protector of the place – stared down the bad guy – the Smoke Monster/Man in Black, inhabiting Locke’s body (Terry O’Quinn). Locke gave Jack a verbal shot, calling him “a bit of an obvious choice.” That clearly was some self-deprecating humour from the creators of the show.
Locke sought to destroy the island. Jack sought to destroy Locke. But they both knew Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) was key, so they lowered him into the underground cave with the flowing water and the bright yellow light.
The ultimate source of that light looked a little like a hot tub in a cheesy Las Vegas theme hotel, didn’t it? Be that as it may, Desmond mucked it up and we waited to see what the consequences would be.
Locke – now physically vulnerable – and Jack ran at each other on the cliff, Kung Fu-style. Locke stabbed Jack in the gut, but Kate (Evangeline Lilly) shot Locke in the back. Jack kicked Locke off the cliff, killing him, but not before Locke said, “You’re too late.”
The island seemed to be destroying itself.
Jack realized he had to turn back on whatever it was that Desmond turned off. Ben (Michael Emerson) and Hurley (Jorge Garcia) decided to go with Jack.
Jack and Kate had their moment on the cliff, though, swapping declarations of love. Jack needed to sacrifice himself to turn the light back on, leaving Hurley to be the new Jack, who was the new Jacob.
In the alternate universe, Jack was the last one to come around. It all comes back to his father’s funeral. He touches his father’s coffin and finally remembers everything.
Including the fact that he died, too.

As I am walking through the street markets in Thailand, I am bombarded with temptations to buy cheap fashion sunglasses at 50 bath ($1.50). Though they are super cute, I can probably only wear them indoor. Recent studies have shown that, wearing sunglasses without UV protection could cause more damage to your eyes than not wearing sunglasses at all!
Putting on sunglasses causes your eyes to dilate, letting more light in and in the case of sunglasses not offering UV protection, more UV rays as well.
UV radiation from the sun can damage not only the skin of your eyelids but also the clear outer parts of the eye — the cornea and conjunctiva. UV exposure also contributes to the development of certain types of cataracts, leading to burns, blindness, and increases the risk of cancer (Environmental Graffiti).
When you’re choosing sunglasses, look for UV protection details on product labels. Choose sunglasses that block at least 99 percent of UVB rays and at least 95 percent of UVA rays. This level of UV protection is in accordance with guidelines established by the American National Standards Institute (mayoclinic).
So spend a little more on the sunglasses and don’t risk your health for a good bargain!

So awkward I had to write a freakin’ blog about it. Earlier today I went in for a traditional Thai full body massage somewhere nearby my house. It is a pretty busy place and it was my first time there. For those of you who’s never had traditional Thai massage it is a combination of relaxing massage combining with contorting tortures, but it definitely gets rid of knots and muscle pain. So the masseuse I had seemed like a nice lady. I didn’t really feel her though. Every time she contorted me, I felt like she was focus on breaking a part of my body. At one point, I thought she was seriously going to break my ankle right off. Didn’t want to be seen as a wuss, I just grinded my teeth and took it like a man (inside begging that she would kill me instead). When she didn’t have to contort me, she would just lightly rub her finger on my skin. That’s not really a massage either, I could just do that at home and rub my face. Then, there was the awkward butt massage. She was moving towards gray areas that I would even be uncomfortable with my gynos. Just when I was praying that the 2 hours of massage would fly by already, the unthinkable happen. I mean, c’mon y’all gotta at least have this thought in your mind “what would happen if someone farts, during this most quiet relaxing time right now?” Just then, I heard this unmistakable fart sound let out. It was not by me.
At that point, I think my masseuse was already hovering somewhere over me. I sunk my face in the pillow. The only reaction that came to my head was a big bag of “BAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!” and leave the room.
The masseuse didn’t even have any reaction to that and kept on massaging. I didn’t want to be rude so I bravely held it in. But I began to convulse. Each time I tried to hold in my laughter, I had to think of cute animals being decapitated and dead bodies. It didn’t do much help, I still was inches away from an outburst.
Time went by, I practiced my breathing. I just focused on the pain of being contorted followed by “O F***, what’s next?!” and “Is this over yet?!”
It was the most bizarre massage session ever, and I survived to tell the story.
So I was meeting up with a friend at Siam Paragon in Bangkok when we heard screaming coming from upstairs. Thinking that it was probably some weekend show spectacle, we really didn’t pay attention. After leaving the mall, I noticed girls in school uniforms running frantically in groups. We couldn’t help but be curious of what the heck are they running for? where are they going? Since we had time to kill, we decided to follow them. Unfortunately, they were too fast, Siam square is too big. So we just let it go. Couple hours later, we ended up at MBK mall. Around 5 pm, I decided to go to the Patumwan Princess hotel which is connected to MBK mall. I never stop at this hotel except to come for dinner with my parents. There, I notice a crowd of teenage girls forming and security guards from the hotel swarmed the perimeter. So this is where those girls ended up! I asked one of the girls “WHO ARE YOU WAITING FOR?? WHAT IS GOING ON??” She replied “2PM is coming out of this hotel any minute now”. I know what 2PM is, one of the most popular boy band sensation of Asia right now so again, I decided to kill time with them too. I managed to sneak into the hotel being all coy but chickened out at the sight of 30 or more tight security inside. So me and my friend decided to chill outside instead. About an hour later, the group were leaving the hotel, which took about 5 seconds… The crowd went nuts. I don’t usually follow celebs around but if the opportunity comes, might as well wait n see. And here is the result.
