Aftershock - Movie

Rabu, November 17, 2010

This movie is adapted from a novel with the same title "aftershock" create by Zhang Ling. The Story based on the Tangshan earthquake in 1976 that killed over 240,000 people.
At 28 July 1967 Earthquake with 7.8 Magnitude hit Tangshan city at 3:42 Am , when over a million people in Tangshan lay sleeping and unaware of the disaster that was to befall them . As the earth began to shake , a few people who were awake had the forethought to dive under a table or heavy piece furniture , but most were a sleep and did not have time . Earthquake lasted approximately 14 to 16 seconds.

The twins Fang Da and Fang Deng is trapped under the slab of concrete .Lifting the slab anyway will kill one of her Children. Their mother Yuan NI..force to choose between her children. heartbroken she decided to save the boy,since she also did not heard any sound of her daughter Deng on the rescue time which indicated that she still live. However her decision is heard by Deng ,who tearfully whispered..."ma..." before she fainted.

After rescued and can pull their body to the save place Yuan Ni for the last time clings to her daughter body (Which she thought died already) , and said "I am Sorry " for many times , before being pulled away to take care of Da ,her one child who still lives . Later in the middle of the rains following the earthquake ,Deng wakes up in the sea of bodies next of the body of her deceased father.

Deng adopted by a military couple who give her their love and take care of her like their own daughter. She always claims that she has not remembered anything about the earthquake. but actually she remember about everything , she only want to forget it because her heart is broken...she always remember the 3 words that said by her mother..."Save my son" . She is angry with her mother , she feel that Yuan Ni is abandon her .

This family is reunite at 2008 , when earthquake hit Shicuan city. The twins Da and Deng help volunteers the rescue effort. While taking break Deng heard a strangers tell his past experience in Tangshan earthquake and quickly realize that it is her long lost brother...Da. Deng visit Yuan Ni at Tangshan and she realized the remorse , emotional agony and guilt feeling that her mother had gone through for the past 32 years and Deng finally forgive her mother. She found that Yuan Ni never forget about her even she thinks Deng already die . Her mother had been buying 2 sets of all the school workbooks , 1 set for Da and 1 set for her which is put at her "grave".
Weakness in this movie is the story is sometimes some part we force to guess. When Deng heard Da tell his story in Sichuan's jump to the scene when Da & Deng visit their mother in Tangshan...No scene when Deng met is not showed how their mother expression when she know at the first time (i think da inform her that He met deng in Sichuan) ...for me that is also important point that we have to know.
However , this movie have a nice story , We learn about looses,hatred and love in this movie. Deng who think that she looses her mother love and think that her mother abandon her because she didn't love her as much as her brother Da. This misunderstanding bring hatred on her heart to her mother. But once Deng have the willingness to meet her mother and talk with her...all the hatred gone.Forgiveness and love reunite this family.

Do Not Ever Talk To Strangers.......

His name is Christ...(that's what he said ) , He invite me to be his friend in Yahoo Messenger . that's how i met him.. (His picture beside taken from his Facebook Account).

From the first time we met in the cyber world, I already feel that there is something strange about him. He said he is from Spain, and his parents now is in UK. But his english is very bad, looks like he translate what he want to say through Google translator...and retype to the chatbox.

Sometimes he also asking question that are not appropriate , like how much i earn per month , i have saving...haaaaaa...and that make me very upset
with i decided i don't want to continued to chat with him. But then he apologize and promise not to ask somekind of that question.

Almost every night we do chatting , but still i am not feel comfortable with him. Everytime i ask something about spain, seems that he avoided my question and change the topic. hhhmmmm something wrong with this man...

Another strange thing is , only after 3 days we met he said that he love me...(alamak how come ? we dun know each other ) hmmmm ok..i smell fishy things here (sorry oppa..i used your word he he he ). He start to call me darling, sweet heart, my love.... ho ho ho sooo romantic...but that word for me is nothing, because i don't have heart feeling with him. so i let him call me what ever he like. Then a crazy and naughty idea coming in my mind, how if I pretend that I also love him...only just to know..actually what is his purpose to do this.

1 weeks after we met,we exchanged mobilephone number . Also strange for me because his number is +44xxxxx , i know that 's country code for UK and not for Spain . when i confirmed with him he said it because his link is in ? what link ? another unanswered question by him.

Everyday he will call me only for say hello and just want to know how am i today. So sweet rite...?

Then the big day is come , he ask my address to send some gift for my sons...he know that my son is like to play football so he will send a gift for him..which i think it must be football costume of real madrid.

He send me by email a receipt from halifax courier service ,with detail of package which can make people shocked.....1 APPLE MACBOOK LAPTOP, 1 ROLEX WRIST WATCH , 1carat Gold NECKLACE And 2 iPhone 4. and with 9,500 Dollars ..Goodness i did not ask him for all of this things. He said because he loves me and want to show his love, that's why he give me all of that gift. hhhmmmm smell fishy again....OK honey...thank you for your gift...and I love you...Shut I close the chatbox...and i start googling....

First i type the Sender Address : "CALLE VEREDA NORTE 3, LA MORALEJA ,MADRID 28109, SPAIN".....enter...I got that address is International College Spain.

hhmmmmm..he choose public place for his address...

then..i type HALIFAX COURIER SERVICE ..and no result for that in Google. the result is only about halifax... a city in UK..

So confirm that it must be a fraud...he choose public place as his address to obscure tracking if I am exposed to his trap.

Christ send the package on thursday, which maybe will come to my address on monday.Monday morning i received call from Halifax Service Malaysia (country code +60) said that i got package from spain but i have to pay USD 650.00 for tax clearance...I smiled..and reply..."can you please send me the detail of how i have to do payment to my email address? " her reply sound not sure...but she said she will send it to my email address. After 1 hour the mail come. And another proved that this courier service don't have their own email address. They use to send the detail how to pay to my email address. Stated in the mail that i have to send this fund through Western Union .

So I reply their email :


is it possible if i pay cash through my colleaques at malaysia ?
maybe you can send me your office address so he can go there .


I get no reply from them for my email, but Christ contact me only 20 minutes after i send my email. He said that he got called form his courier agent in spain about the tax that i have to pay. He ask me to pay the fund immediately .

I said to him , "that I WILL NEVER WASTE my money to pay something that is not true. for something that i never ask from you .If you really love me , i ask you to pay the tax for me now." then he said that he is now in Paris for a meeting . I said i do not care, because i really will not pay the tax...then he become angry and go offline. At night he contact me again and try again to ask me pay the tax...but i said to him that once i said NO it means NO forever. he said that it will make him may not talking to me forever. I said "I am gladly to hear that" , with that he go offline and left.

Tuesday evening I got mesage from halifax asking for payment, which i reply by kindly ask the sender to pay all the tax. And they stop calling and message me.

I realized this is very dangerous because there is a possibility that this is a group of international Gangster ,but this is also q valuable lessons for me but , Never ever accepted request for a friend in cyberworld , if you did not know him at all. at least you must have mutual friend with this person.

Thanks to GOD that i am not a Greedy woman which easily tempted when see an expensive goods. Can not imagine if the detail on the package tempted me and i decide to transfer blindly to that trickster gang.

Hope this story will make other woman to be carefull when they start a new relation with strangers. OR better do what my mom said....Do Not Ever Talk To Strangers.....
