Found an interesting article / blog I thought it's worth the while see how we Malaysians feel on the big question - How much before we pawn our soul? How often we lied to get ahead or make more bucks?

"I think people seem to be much harder, it seems rampantly materialistic, everything done for money," he said, continuing, "of course we live in a capitalistic society, but there are things that cannot be judged and given a price tag. Something has been drained from the spirit of the country… it's subliminal and it's terrible, because there is nothing worse than a safe, happy, greedy society." Quote from Barry Kosky, theatre director.

How much does life weigh?
How much does love weigh?
How much does revenge weigh?
How much does guilt weigh?

They say we all lose 21 grams at the exact moment of our death... everyone. The weight of a stack of nickels. The weight of a chocolate bar. The weight of a hummingbird...

-Quote from the movie, 21 gram-

So since your soul only has a weight of a stack of nickels, weight of a chocolate bar, weight of a hummingbird... that's how much your soul worth. ;)

Sorry if anyone really thinks it belongs there but I would have thought life issues like this should be in the mainstream of things. I suppose that's what's happening to most of us, the relentless pursuit of wealth and material gains at the expense of relationships, environment, health and moral sense we somehow loses track of what's important, no?
