people who need people are the luckiest people

It's so good to see how Kuala Lumpur has become one of the world's selected holiday destinations. Why? Cos I get to observe so many people from who knows where. I'm not weird. It's what I do for a living, remember? I watch how they move, listen to their accents, facial expressions... you know, anything that I can add into my ever-expanding actor's bag. Like this couple who walked in front of me. There was no tension in their bodies. They walked at a leisurely pace, stopping every now and then to say something or smile at each other. Sweet.

Have a great weekend with each other.

Yes i love the lines that these people make. Also their actions. He's kind of concerned and she's shielding her mouth as some people do when they are eating. Calls for a caption comp. i reckon. lol.

Barbra Streisand song? Yeah I guess the title is a perfect match to your message. The theater of life is the richest and most didactic. Great weekend Ed.

I was told that Kuala Lumpur is the best South East Asian destination for those who want culture, history, and shopping. Not all other cities in Asia have that. So I'm not surprised of your observation.

Dijah,'s so good to be so young and not have to sleep for many hours like us old folks! :)

PW, it's a very big stage.

Stewiewart, who knows what people really want? Or need? We ask for so much. Thanks for popping by old man. I've missed you :)

Poddy, it's been a good one.

Lil Star...I know what you mean :)

Lynn: She replies, "As sure as you pants are about to fall off!"

Carlos, I guess I have to make my own theatre on the streets. No street artists here like you have over there.

Grazi Fabrizio!

Where did you hear that Ming? Isn't it about time you made your way over?

Edwin I just love what you write. The text here is such a huge addition to the photo! We understand how you think, how every life experience, minute as it may be, enriches and fills your actor's bag. This is fascinating. More than ever, thanks for sharing that with us.
