Love is overrated.
MAYBE YES love is never perfect and is something people simply make up in their minds so they can have something to own. But you've just justified it yourself. Love exists because it brings us humans lots of emotions. And, blame it on ourselves, even if we know that there isn't such perfect love, we would still crush on someone, fall in love, become jealous, become heartbroken. That's why love exists. Thanks to love, we get to experience all this. We love, so we envy, hate, believe, hope... and that's what made us humans.

What makes TED truly international?
Omg this is so coo!! I can't speak any Malay though. Maybe I should learn before I go travel there. But I think a huge population in Malaysia is Chinese, so I guess Chinese would work just fine :p
