So I was still wide awake after 15 minutes, as I find the plot interesting... a father with psychological deficiency who just wanted to give her daughter the best sailor moon bag but apparently wasn't able to buy it because someone got the last stock. That someone, a baby girl, saw him the other day to help him get the same bag but accidentally slipped, bumped her head, hit by a brick and died on the spot, and the dad, having only pure intentions performed CPR but was wrongly accused of raping and killing the child which happened to be a daughter of high government official.
All the fun and the drama went on around the murder case, trying to prove his innocence and along the way the father gained new friends unexpectedly due to his innocent and loving nature.
I'm not sure if it was estrogen (as I think I will be having more since I will be more outnumbered by October, see my previous blog) or my deep association with having a daughter that made me shed buckets of tears during the climax scene but I'm not going to tell it here so as not to spoil your interest on watching the film. But here's some thoughts and insights I gained from the movie:
It's a girl!
We just found out last weekend that we're having another girl in the family.
Then, I began to think about these three things:
1. Oh my! In the Philippines, they said that if you have all girl kids, it was an indication that you were very naughty when you were a bachelor...
So then I began to reflect even more? How come?! I'm a very good boy when I was single... :)
2. Second, how can I stay manly in a world full of girls. So I started searching for articles in the internet on how a man can deal with this situation. I bumped into this article http://www.prevention.com/health/healthy-living/how-dad-stays-manly-while-raising-daughters and find it to be very interesting. To summarize it, no matter how tough you are as a man, you really won't mind doing girly things to show how much you love your girls.
3. Third, what's good about this will be the sweetness and thoughtfulness of my girls. I may not have a sparring partner in boxing or a hoops buddy in basketball (technically they can but on a different level though) but generally and biologically, girls are more expressive of their love which could cheer me up often in this busy and crazy schedule that we have both in business and corporate life.
