For those not familiar with "HERO", this movie is adapted from the most watched TV series (2001) and Special (2006) of the same name in Japanese television. Channel U has recently shown the Hero Special last Saturday and the movie is a sequel of the special. After six years of professional exile to local District Attorney Offices in Okinawa, Sapporo and Yamaguchi, Kuryu Kohei (Takuya Kimura) returns to Tokyo Prosecutors Office Josai Branch. Kuryu is immediately asked to prosecute a seemingly open-and-shut case of manslaughter. However, the defendant changes his plea to not guilty in the midst of trial. All these are spin from a more serious political bribery conspiracy. To pursuit the truth, Kuryu and his loyal assistant, Amemiya (Takako Matsu), went to Busan, South Korea. In the midst of finding evidences, they receive great help from an elite Korean Chief Public Prosecutor, played by Lee Byung Hun. Kuryu's youthful passion and dedication to his trade makes him an interesting contrast to his colleagues who have become only too accustomed to the stuffy and hierarchical realm of public prosecutors in Japan. Once past the initial dismay of Kuryu's unconventional ways, his colleagues gradually find themselves infected by his dedication and sense of mission.

Went raffles city yesterday with hubby and as he always spends a long time at MPH (bookstores are his favourite place and like his destress haven), i decided to have lunch at the cafe nearby and read my favourite Nancy Drew book. Since watching the movie sometime ago, i have started borrowing the books from the library.
I used to read alot of Nancy Drew books in Primary School and reading the books again really bring back fond memories :> i used to enjoy relaxing in my bed reading and was always excited to read about the latest adventure of my favourite heroine. I also can't remember when i stopped reading them. It was so relaxing just drinking my iced mocha and reading. I especially like the festive atmosphere at the shopping mall. Really puts one in a good mood. hehe i can already hear festive bells ringing... time to put up my christmas decorations and tree in my house.
Christmas has always been my most favourite part of the year, not only because of the presents but also because i really enjoy shopping and buying gifts for my love ones. It is also my way of showing that i care for them and appreciate them :>

1) Hop off the worry train. Just because you have an idea ("I might get fired") doesn't mean you need to ride it to its terminus. ("There are 50 ways I could screw up, and I've got to avoid them all.") "Worry can waste energy—you're trying to fix every possible problem, even if none exist," psychologist Robert L. Leahy says. Instead, think of a few tasks that will help whatever happens, like bonding with coworkers.
2) Plan to fret. "Take half an hour to worry intensively, then move on," says Penn State professor Tom Borkovec, Ph.D.
3) Keep a journal. Jot down your worry, then in a few days or weeks, write the outcome. What you'll find: Things usually turn out better than you think they will.
4) Challenge the likelihood of your worry. If your husband is late coming home and you imagine he has been hit by a bus, think about the emotion behind your worry. (You are anxious because you love him and want to keep him around.) Once you have identified the emotion at the heart of your worry and allowed yourself to experience it, see if it's a reasonable worry (hint: probably not). Then let it pass rather than allowing anxiety to ruin your quiet night at home.
5) Peel an orange. The next time a thought threatens to snowball into a stressfest, grab an orange or grapefruit. Press your nail into the skin, peel it back and smell the citrus scent, focusing on every sensation. "Rather than worry about the future, you can bring yourself into the moment," Leahy says.
6) Get nostalgic. Visualize your key life events of the past 10 years. You probably can't recall the worries linked with these experiences, or, if you can, you may see that most never happened (e.g., you didn't trip and fall at your wedding). Tell yourself that current worries will fade from memory, too.
