I wanted to watch a little bit of a light-hearted comedy drama, so I happened to come across this series which featured Barbie Hsu and Show Luo (name?).
The show begins with an atypical story of the rich girl and the poor boy, who happen to turn a corner and meet through an unexpected accident. Later, the rich girl’s parents go bankrupt and leave her alone in HK, and she is also abandoned by her rich boyfriend (who had proposed to her shortly before) due to associations with her parents.
There was a little tearjerker moment when she was walking the streets in her lovely silver bow shoes with no home to go to, and somehow I remembered this quote:
“Christopher Robin had a question to ask first, and he was wondering how to ask it.
“Well,” he said at last, “it’s a very nice house, and if your own house is blown down, you must go somewhere else, musn’t you, Piglet? What would you do, if your house was blown down?”
Before Piglet could think, Pooh answered for him.
“He’d come and live with me,” said Pooh, “wouldn’t you?”
Piglet squeezed his paw. “Thank you, Pooh,” he said, “I should love to.””
– A. A. Milne
Yes I know females make the weirdest associations by something as simple as a movie, but that little moment did make me thoughtful.
