Eh? Wasn't yesterday Sunday?

iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: I Shall Be Released - Nina Simone - The Best of Nina Simone [RCA], of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.
Thanks to Cheh Zai Meen's blog (orh, you ah, sekali they really freeze your CPF!), I've seen the ISD's website, and read their mission statement, which is prefaced by a LKY quote. Tell me if it doesn't remind you of Humpty Dumpty. I had a reasonably good 'weekend' in the middle of the week. Me and the wife dressed up and went out in the middle of the night for posh drinks at a posh place. We were having so much fun, we decided to share it with LMD, who reluctantly trudged out to join us, had some funky drink, and next thing you know, the place closed. We were primed for a long gallavant, all of us! We coulda danced all night! And they had to close at 2am! What kind of crap place closes at 2am on the eve of a public holiday, said LMD. Good thing she already had a bit to drink before she met us. Dunno what would've happened if she didn't. Then just now, I popped in a DVD, Wong Kar Wai's 'Days of Being Wild', and, Lulu/Mimi from 2046 is from there! So is the reference to 'the legless bird', and so is Maggie Cheung's character, Su Lizhen! And Tony Leung's character appears for only a minute! So, it's all that come full circle shit thing shit! 'Whaddya mean I need a new manager? I happen to think Baleno was a good deal.'

I reckon that was the first time you watched Days of Being Wild ;)?

No guest appearance by Jacky Cheung or Andy Lau in 2046 leh....

dude... more surprises... it might not be merely be a trilogy... notice how visually as well as relationships-wise Chungking Express was referenced to the point of groan-making... methinks WKW was having a little too much fun making us ordinary mortals spot stuff. :(

Er... I feel Chungking Express doesn't have any direct linkages to DBW, ITMFL or 2046. For the relationships thingy, all of WKW's shows are centered around it lah....
