I don't believe in luck! I came to Hong Kong at 17. I learned Cantonese and English, got into medical school
and became a neurosurgeon. None of it is luck.
-I know you work hard. Just take it easy. Lives are in our hands. It's a matter of life and death. We're professionals but not everything is within our control. We can only do our best.
People say that all the time. But they don't even know what it means.

There was a chicken on a farm. Every morning, the farmer would feed it, until it became fat. The chicken thought the farmer was a good man. One morning, the farmer came as usual. But he didn't feed it. He killed it. Because it was Thanksgiving! The chicken relied on induction. As a result, it died. I didn't make up the story. A philosopher called Bertrand Russell wrote it in his 1917 book Problems of Philosophy.

It's called stress! Greece is the least happy; followed by Iraq, then Bulgaria, Hong Kong scores 6.4 on the happiness index, fourth from the bottom.

We break the law to enforce the law.

In ancient Greece, people already noticed whales would be stranded along the coast in mass suicide. Former Soviet scientist Tomilin believed, whales rush to rescue their own kind like soldiers deployed on a rescue mission. When one whale is stranded, the whole flock dies.

I solemnly pledge to consecrate my life to the service of humanity. The health of my patient will be my first consideration. I will maintain the utmost respect for human life. Adopted by the World Medical Association in 1948, the Declaration of Geneva is based on the Hippocratic Oath.

"And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbor; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him; Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again."

Chinese Song in Traditional Characters:
《三人行》主題曲《之乎者也》 主唱:王菀之
編曲:羅大佑

知之為知之 在乎不在乎
此人何其者 孔老夫子也

知之為不知 在在不在乎
此人何其者 寒山之子也

不知為知之 不在乎在乎
此人何其者 齊人是也

很久以前我們的祖先都曾經這麼說
很久以前我們的祖先都曾經這麼說
現在看看我們的青年他們在講什麼 哇塞~
但是你要想想到底你要他們怎麼做

剪刀等待之 清湯掛麵乎
尊師重道者 莫過如是也
風花雪月之 嘩啦啦啦乎
所謂民歌者 是否如是也

知知知知知 乎乎乎乎乎
者者者者者 也也也也也

很久以前我們的祖先都曾經這麼說
很久以前我們的祖先都曾經這麼說
現在聽聽我們的青年他們在唱什麼 哦~
但是你要想想到底你要他們怎麼做

眼睛睜一隻 嘴巴呼一呼
耳朵遮一遮 皆大歡喜也
大家都知之 大家都在乎
袖手旁觀者 你我是也

The movie was alright. It had its ups and downs.

Johnnie To's newest film takes place in one area, so it kind of plays out like a stage play. A doctor on the edge of her wits, a charming thug with a smart crew of villains, and a corrupt cop all converge in a hospital in this crime thriller. The movie isn't perfect, but it offers a pretty good finale and develops the characters with a deft hand. Not amazing, but worth a viewing if you're into that.

A fast paced police drama filmed almost entirely inside the op-room and pre/intra/post-op acute care ward of a hospital in Hong Kong. From wiki: Shun (Wallace Chung), a thug, is shot in the head by a cop due to miscommunication during an interrogation and is taken to the hospital. In the hospital, he claims human rights to refuse surgery to remove the bullet inside his head in order to bide time for his underlings to rescue him. The detective (Louis Koo) in charge sees through Shun's scheme but decides to play along so as to capture his whole gang once and for all. Like to add the role of the neurosurgeon Zhao Wei who tried her hardest to improve the lives of her patients including Shun. At the very end, the three protagonists seemed to have reconciled their own demons after an intense shoot-'em up finale. An original script that kept your interest from the first to last scene. Watch the trailer with lyrics of the theme song "Archaisms" sung by Ivana Wong in "Videos."
