Chongson and May was having a drink again at Red Light district for the 4th time. Things are going as normal at this time of the nite. Chongson, being a schizoprehnic, as always was paranoid and expected drastic things to happen at places like this. Suddenly, this time, a drastic thing did happen. Gang fights broke out. Choas everywhere and later Chongson find May lying dying in his arms. As he sees the life of May drain out from her, something awoken up in him. Something buried deep inside him. The thing that causes him to get close to people like May. Chongson mind awoken to..........
Chongson couldn't bear to part with May and his consciousness traveled back in time to save May at the moments before she dies. But May still dies. Chongson was seconds too late. Chongson consciousness traveled back in time again for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th time, but May still dies as he's always seconds behind time. At the 6th time, Chongson found himself in unfamiliar surroundings. Not at the Red Light District. The place has changed. A lady walk towards him. And she's no other than Susan. As Chongson run towards Susan, the girl of his dreams, May suddenly come out from nowhere and hug Chongson sobbing and saying, "Hubby, r u going to leave me again this time?" WHAT! I'm married to May in this place and time?! With Susan and May close around me?! But what was awoken in me as I see May's life drain away before my very eyes? Yeah, a riddle:what was awoken in me as I see May's life drain away before my very eyes?
Please participate enthusiastically and tell me the answer.
Eric Perkins tells me: You don't have to wait to see May dies to have that thing awoken in you. Time will unravel all the mysteries in your life in time to come.
A old man says: That's right. All in good time.
Another old man says: That's right sonny boy. Expects nothing.......want nothing.......
Another old man says: Look, there are people who could bend spoon with their minds. You need to have a blank mind to let them use their minds on you for their game.

I don't think this is from The Merchant of Venice. For starters, Shakespeare didn't write in a prose style, but in dialogue mixed in with some stage directions. And I don't remember any Uri Geller references from my last reading, either.

I never mention that what I write is from the Merchant of Venice. By the way who is Uri Geller?

I know I'm going to regret asking this, but does your "Topic" field relate to, well, anything? (No less than the rest of the post does, I imagine. :roll: )

Well, er....., at least the topic tells you you'll be reading a play and the rest of the post is a kind of play. A kind of self-finding of the main character Chongson with regard to what was awoken in him, his schizoprenic consciousness; there's a song that goes "when I want her, I close my eyes and I see her" are descriptions of hullucinations of the schzi mind. The rest of the post are responses from the writer's mind after writing such a plaything.

the weather is horribly this place, 43 deg C with the humidity ... I am melting... to make it worse there is a garbage strike in Toronto; my poor Susan lives right downtown, the smell is unbearable in this heat ... hope either the weather or the strike both break soon

Was it a vision of the future ? Maybe Chongson knew that May may eventually elope with Jeem Yangtze the legendary warrior of Hangdong.
May be Chongson could also see visions of Fan Xu Dong of Shangdong, Jeem's dead master berating Jeem for seducing MayMay and luring her away from Chongson.

Another possible answer is that the evil master Fan My Dong of Ticklemydong was interfering with his efforts to save May or Susan or whoever he was trying to save

An old English proverb says "change ne'er a clout 'till May's well out", and I think that applies here.

Fyodor is wrong. What Chongson was thinking at that moment was
"Sola, sola! wo ha, ho! sola, sola!"

Yes, something did went to sleep in him. His love for somebody. Which is he know he'll never love somebody this way again. At the same time, when he searches deeply inside enough, he finds that he need to go to the east side of java to visit komodo island to search for the largest living reptile, the komodo dragon. Only when he eats his blood/bread and drinks this wine can he recover from the death of May.

As to Fan My Dong of TickleMyDong,


Chongson has decided to ask some chinese ladies of the cantonese dialect. He would dial a counselling helpline and start his question as "Please help me I'm very distress, because I dunno what's the meaning of Fan My Dong" or "Why is there a dong in shangdong?"
To contribute his part, he would ask if any chinese person pray to the white tiger (pek hor in hokkien), and if they know which part of the white tiger is the hairest (mao4 sheng4), is it on the face or what?

I am still confused. How did May turn into Susan.
Or was Susan May all the time?

My guess is that Susan,
without any reason,
has left Chongson for all seasons,
And May,
who happens to come along in May Day,
Make hay
while the day is gay
which make Chongson's day
(While Chongson hold on to the nite
Hold on to the memory
Hold on, Mary)

And Chongson start to realise and all that glitters is not gold, often have you heard that told, and choose the right casket containing a picture of Susan in it. Of course Nerissa May was there to give Chongson the hint to make the right choice of the lead casket among the gold, silver and lead casket.

Fyodor,
Is it true that Jeem is nearly as good as Wong Long at Mantis Kung Fu ?

Ny ladno, nadeys' chto ne tak bustro eto ydalyat. Pokeda."

Laloo, could you please interpret for me what is it that you are saying. I don't trust those language translators.
