One oyster omelet.

What a beautiful sunsetl

Certainly.

I can't seem to recall | the last time I felt this peaceful.

You're right. | We've come so far.

Without you | I wouldn't be where I am now.

Where is fate leading us?

We will go wherever | it takes us.

We'll always be together, | till the end, right?

How much is this?

You tell them | it's too expensive.

You're asleep again.

Don't come back tomorrow.

You're fired.

Damnl | Crying day and night.

What are you doing, fatty?

- Hello. | - Hello.

I am...

your new teacher.

My name is Ms. Chan.

What is your name?

My name is Shijia.

You look...

very cute.

Thank you.

Candy?

Thank you.

Heyl

Get me a beer.

Where's mine?

I beat him all the time | when he was young,

and he still turned out useless.

Why isn't he like you?

Sir, please buy some tissue.

$1 for three packets.

Thank you, thank you.

Hello?

Why have you been | avoiding me?

StarHub is unable | to get a response

from our customer's mobile phone. | Please try again later.

Get outl

Can I help you?

Are you okay?

...may perish from all sorts of hurt.

Love disappears only when you | do not understand what it means.

I was born July 9, 1943, | in Sago Lane.

I was a cute and happy baby.

But had my parents known

what was in store for me,

they would probably

have given me away for adoption.

Dad lost a thriving | restaurant business.

I had to learn how to cook, wash

and clean by the time I was 10.

My parents were happy | and proud of me.

But their happiness and pride

did not last long.

There was little knowledge | as to what

really happened | to cause my deafness.

How much is this?

This one can.

How is your father?

He is fine.

Do you go to see him?

Yes, sometimes.

You should see him more often.

Old man. Old man.

A pack of Marlboro.

Marlboro.

Why run a business | behind a closed grill?

It's so inconvenient.

You should open the grill.

At 14, I went deaf.

Why, I don't know.

One night blood and pus

trickled down my cheek.

Both my mother and father

didn't think much of it.

My mother thought | it was only a small boil

which had burst open.

The next morning | I lost my hearing.

She shouted into my ears,

but I couldn't make out

what she was saying.

How much pain and suffering

can a person take?

I have often wrestled | with that question.

I've lost my hearing, and now

I'm about to lose my sight as well.

It all started with the right eye.

I saw changing colors | and black dots

and I kept blinking.

My parents did not | take me immediately

to the hospital for treatment.

They just gave me eye drops

and Chinese herbs.

They only sought help

when I was no longer able | to see with my right eye

and when my left eye

started to give me trouble.

I remember long stays | in the hospital,

daily vision tests, | painful injections

and bandages on my eyes.

My hands were tied at night

because they didn't want me | to touch my bandages.

Every morning

when the doctors | came to check on me,

I asked them | if I would ever see again.

One doctor patted my hand

without replying to my question.

I just kept praying...

"I do not want to be blind,

and I do not deserve | this eternal punishment."

I became blind.

I felt I was living

in a silent and dark prison.

There were days | when I didn't want to live.

But there were good days

when I would tell myself

that it did not matter | as long as I was alive

and I was guarded by heaven's love.

I doubt if most people | can understand

what it's like to be deaf and blind.

It's as if someone had a wall

which nobody can tear | or break down.
