Subject: Malaysian Film festival

Cathay Organisation is very proud to bring to Singapore for the first time
the Malaysian Film Festival , a collection of cutting edge Malaysian films
that we have put together to showcase the Malaysian film industry today.
From feedback from my staff some of the following are worth watching:-
Sepet - world premiere in Singapore ( film not even released in Malaysia
Bukak Api ( about transvestites) - very controversial,
Spinning Gasing and
The Beautiful Washing Machine.

The festival is on starting from tomorrow for a week - we are having 2 shows
a day! For those of us with a love for film it is a good opportunity to see
how far my ex countrymen have come in this wonderful world of celluloid. If
you have the time, try and catch a Malaysian film this week!

Inspiration : Dr Maya Angelou Age 74

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah (on her show) for Dr. Angelou's 74th birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was "exciting."

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day... like her breasts.

They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist first, she said. The audience laughed so hard they cried. Dr. Angelou also said:
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."
I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Please send this to five phenomenal women today. If you do, something good will happen: You will boost another woman's self-esteem.
