    I cried...

    - while watching some of the China's Earthquake footage on Channel 8's charity show
    - while reading the blog entries from this lady which Kaijia tagged on the tagboard
    - while listening to my all-time favourite song (Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton) and to cry even harder when i just found out the song was for his son who fell to his death at the age of 4

    I don't know why but i keep having this weird feeling recently.

    Just now while watching the charity show,i came across this story.It's about this young mother who died during the quake.The rescuers thought she died in a rather awkward position..the only way to describe it is the way you do Sit and Reach for your NAFA.

    So,the rescuers lifted her up and found a baby on her lap.Yes,i've heard of this kind of story before.There was once i heard this story about a mother who took off all her clothes just to keep her baby warm.It was snowing heavily and i think they had nowhere to go.So in the end,the mother had to hide under a bridge,took off all her clothes and keep her baby warm while she froze to death.

    Anyway back to that young mother.

    So the rescuers found the baby and the baby was sleeping really soundly without a single scratch whatsoever because her mother used her body to protect her baby.Then,they found a phone inside the baby's clothes and in it,was a message typed by the baby's mother.It was written in chinese,it goes,

    'Dear baobei,if you're alive and if you ever get to read this message,just want to tell you that I love you.'

    My tears just flew uncontrollably.

    And then i went on to read the blog Kaijia tagged at my tagboard.

    They were so loving!Although i kept telling myself there's no such thing as true love but i guess they had just proven me wrong.

    There is,but it wouldn't last.That's why it hurts,so badly.

    Their story is almost like that of the Channel 8 9pm show,Rhythm of Life.It must be damn hard for the girl to pick up the pieces and carry on with her life.They were such spontaneous couple,i think every corner is full of their memories.

    Life is cruel.I truly applaud her for what she's been through and what she has become today(as what i can read from her entries).Moving in to the house they've bought together,etc.If she's able to overcome this tough period,trust me,nothing in the world can get her down.

    When the going gets tough,the tough gets going.Very very true:)

    As for Eric Clapton's son,well,what can i say?

    Claim: The Eric Clapton song "Tears in Heaven" is a tribute to Conor Clapton, Eric's pre-school son, who died in an accident in 1991.

    Status: True.

    Origins: On 20 March 1991 at 11 a.m., four-and-a-half-year-old Conor Clapton died when he fell from a 53rd-story window in a New York City apartment. He landed on the roof of an adjacent four-story building.

    Heartbreaking isn't it?

    I'm sad.
