WOULD YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?

Before you answer that question like a Miss Universe finalist determined to win, listen to my story first sweetie…

My friends and I went to this very interesting place called Narmada a few minutes away from our hotel. This is one of Lombok Island’s many Hindu temples.

In the garden grounds, there’s this curious fountain called “the Fountain of Youth”. Hindu devotees believe that it would give longer life to anyone who drinks it. OMG sweetie! I felt excited! But not really…

As Morgan and Pisanu appeared to take a sip of the “enchanted” water, I took a step back what if it’s true? What if I indeed live longer than I should? What if I drink too much than required – what’s the dosage? Would it keep me young or I’ll still go old but I won’t die for like 300 years?!! It was a fokken dilemma, I tell you. Not to mention it looks filthy, sweetheart.

So what I did was… I emptied my Evian bottle, refilled it with the "alleged" enchanted water…

....and keep it till I get my answers.

Who knows?


O'right sweeties... for those who can't wait to answer the question posted on the title; you may do so on the comment section. And don't forget your poise. Fokken out! LOL

hahaha. you're so funny sofia. hehehe. u got me laughing Out Loud as in literally LOL. hehehe. and its a good idea actually, cause drinking unsafe water leads to diarrhea, cholera and typhoid fever.
If ever pisanu and the gang will be taken to a hospital i say throw away the water. BUT if ever they defy age and stay young and pretty after a long time then drink all of it then. hehehe. and u might buy the whole fountain as well and get richie-bitchy-super-duper-rich by selling bottled water...

No. Mortality motivates me to live my life to the fullest and savor each breathing moment.

I thank you.

Happy chinese new year, my friends!

Lol Sof, you had your blond moments there heh? I'd suggest you drink a drop. Haha. Maybe you'd be a year younger :P

My profound and winning answer(with the matching pose)...I don't want to live forever because I believe that human life is a tabula rasa. It starts with a clean slate that dirties itself with experience through time. As it becomes jaded with experience, wounds, victory, joys,pains, sorrows and SEX, it burns itself out like a Phoenix which shall resurrect itself again as a clean slate...and, by the way, I aim for world peace... thank you and good evening!

Catharsis Coppola said...

That was not MU 1994, Erick! You're funny. It was another year...oooh...I forgot Sorry.

"First of all...ni hao. (smiles)

Yes, I would want to live forever. Why not? Since everybody's doing everything and spending all their money to look young...why not grab the chance?

I thank you. Sheh-sheh ni. I love you China!"

Nadja...it's Miss Universe...not Miss World! LOL

"It's natural for a mortal like me to engage in such wishful thinking. However, If I were already immortal, I would probably wish to die someday anyway out of boredom. So my bottomline is I do wish to live forever but since I may eventually get bored of this Earthly existence I also wish to be able to exist in different planes or levels of existence." (After she realizes the audience is silent she says: "World peace!")

That would be the female me in an alternate universe's Miss Universe pageant.

clean living... that's what keeps the youth within you.

Patric said...

ha ha ha...love what you said on throwing the evian's content...talk about replacing it with the purest and safest drinking water :) but seriously, I think I will be afraid to live forever cause at a particular point in my life, I like to have my own peace. and yup...when that happen it means I'm the one who went NEXT lol.

i'd rather live in okinawa and live the most unstressful life. with that "water", its actually belief or better yet, faith, that would make you convinced that it has indeed "wondrous powers".
let's say you drank that water but still lived a stressful and highly-toxic life, don't you think that drink still fulfilled its purpose? of course not.

longetivity does not dwell in a convenience store or in any other one-stop shop.

there goes my comment!

cheers!

Hahaha... This entry reminded me of my friend and I in our sojourn to Bath. Of course, we JUST HAD TO DRINK the water there, right? Afterall, Bath is famous for its miracle water for good health. Truthfully? It tastes and smells horrendous! Like fish and algae water, but warmer - not like I really know what fish and algae water really tastes like, and the 4 euros we had to pay for a measly glass was a complete rip off when all we had was just sip!
Nonetheless, I've learned my lesson: for good health or long life, or immortality, those water will never pass my lips again. I'll gladly give up good health and long life than to turn green and rush to the nearest WC and throw up.

@ SOFIA : For a little experiment, let the water sit in the Evian bottle for a week to see if there are any bacteria/organism growth in it. I'm sure Pisanu and Morgan would be interested to know what was swimming around in the water they just took a sip of for the sake of long life.

Talking about living forever...has anyone of you guys received the video sent by Pisanu about 21 December 2012?

curbside_puppet said...

he mentioned that to me last night. i told him that i'll research about it before making my say.

Jake Tornado said...

@curbside? About that video? What is it all about?

there's some sort of a biblical prophesy on that date. kuya (pisanu) mentioned that there's some sort of a renewal on that date. there were several prophesies from different sources. check it on google.

but i guess, it was pretty much an overhype about the 20/12/2012 date.

this will be my first ever comment after admiring this blogspot for quite some time now.

@ sofia..you chose the right bottle for that kind of water.

there's a story here in europe on how evian got started. there were these two french brothers who thought that they could sell anything to the americans who love everything french. at that time when even the water from the toilet bowl was still potable, the clueless americans thought it's au courant to buy french bottled water even with the brand name "naive" spelled backwards.

thought i just want to share. =)

@Anonymous...I heard that story when I was a kid. Not new.

@jake...if you knew of it when you were about 5 or 6 yrs. old then you must be around 13 or 14 yrs. old now? that joke started to circulate around UK and Ireland just about 8 years ago unless it actually originated from your own barangay? cool!

Jake Tornado said...

@Anonymous...sorry but all your assumptions are wrong. I first heard it way back in 1992 from PETA's Cecilia Guidote-Alvarez in a highschool seminar. I was 13 years old then. Ms. Alvarez, if I remember it right, knew of the story from a conference in Brazil. So it did not originate from any of the Barangays here in the Philippines. If that joke started 8 years ago in UK, then it mught have originated somewhere in your hills? cool.
