for you, a thousand times over

the kite runner, the movie, will be officially released in singapore on 31 january 2008. being the pirate that i am, i've watched it with credits to the best thing known to men; bittorrent. i read the book a couple of months ago and it was a very enjoyable read.

today, i reminisced that enjoyable experience by watching the movie. its a beautiful story but watching me watching it isn't pretty, especially with the waterworks!

in one of the scenes when you finally see amir jan praying, a song by sami yusuf was played. the lyrics touched me deeply and had me crying for quite a bit.

this an excerpt from the song:

"O My Lord,
My sins are like
The highest mountain;
My good deeds
Are very few
They’re like a small pebble.
I turn to You
My heart full of shame,
My eyes full of tears.
Bestow Your
Forgiveness and Mercy
Upon me."

watch the movie. read the book. you'll enjoy it.

i gave the movie a pass when i was in the states (they were already showing it there!!!), just so that i can watch it with the boyfriend here, who took my book and got it destroyed by rainwater even before he could finish reading it.

this book has gotta be one of the BEST book i've ever ownED so far.
