sense of touch-universal language of love Wall-E
Wall- E!!! The droopy-eye petite robot!! I first saw him appearing on movie sneak preview months back and the little thingy had left a deep impression within me. I told myself ‘Die die must watch’; and finally catch it today with Mel.
The plot set where earthling consumed good at rate faster than they could be removed that the overrun un-recycled waste make the planet too polluted to support life. BnL (Big and Large, was rather symbolic as they did after all produced big and large amount of waste), the company that flourished on planet are the main culprit on the waste produced that they sponsored a 5 years plan to evacuate men to outer-space on board Axion with tons of Wall-E left behind to clear up the waste.
Who’s this Wall-E? They are range of robots designed to collect scrap of waste materials and compressing them into cubic before stacking them up; as a means for easier waste removal later. The 5 years plan came to halt when It was determined that Earth was too polluted to return. 700 years had passed and this particular, I called it malfunction Wall-E is still operational.
Perhaps nearly a millennium of activation had made this particular Wall-E peculiar from the rest of his kind. He is not systematic; he shows human traits, especially on the emotion part, he knows holding hands signify love from this video tape he watched, he felt sorry when he accidentally rolled over his pet-cockroach. Starring into the night sky, he long to hold someone hand.
On his usual routine, making cube of trash Wall-E chance upon this seedling plant and add it into his collection. Suddenly a spaceship landed on Earth and this probe-like robot named EVE was deployed with assignment to locate life on Earth. Wall-E was hiding behind a rock and watched EVE with mixture of amazement and adornment. When EVE noticed his presence, she (I called it ‘she’ with her effeminate speech) blast a beam couple of times at Wall-E. Poor Wall-E just revert his arms, legs (wheels) into his body like a turtle with his head popping up a little and stare at EVE with his pair of droopy innocent eyes and trembling at the same time (he even shown fear for a robot).

-- -- , happy will be like n n )
Eventually EVE got comfortable with Wall-E, with Wall-E having fascination of holding EVE’s hand. Wall-E show EVE his discoveries of the seedling and EVE soon stored it and deactivated.
The story goes on. . . on about how those human back in space ship got so accustomed to automated life, their life revolved round this mobile seats, they talk in front of a screen even if the person was RIGHT NEXT to them, they lost this universal communication-sense of touch, of which Wall-E a robot long to show to EVE. Then it goes on, on how the captain on board this Axion comes to realize the important of mere SURVING VS LIVING! A significant moment when he finally step up on his 2 feet and wrestle against the wheel-handle robot ‘AUTO’.
Nuff of the story, the synopsis can be read on the net, I just want to share some of the interesting/touching moments in this heart-felt animaton.
1) When Wall-E tired his ‘lung’ out to pronounced EVE’s name, he finally got it right but he could just register the E not the higher pitch of -----------VE.
2) When Wall-E found a utensil that resemble that of a fork & spoon that he just don’t know to place it at his spoon collection or fork collection when he finally place it in between the 2, LOL
3) When Wall-E took off the chain from his wheel (resemble pair of shoes) and hung it, with his wheel (legs) roaming in his room.
4) When Wall-E impressed EVE with his collection from egg beater (that EVE just spun to fast that the head just flew off), to rubix cube (that EVE solved within secs), EVE simply just pop the plastic pops at an instance, I thought the main aim was to distract EVE from using his canon, LOL
5) M-O was seen clearing up the stain left by Wall-E
And many other funny moments
Touching one were, how Wall-E go thought the extent of protecting EVE when she became deactivated, sheltering her from storm under the umbrella and getting himself electrocuted but still standing firm to shelter her. EVE only realized what Wall-E had done for her through the security cam later in the show.
Another moment was when Wall-E being crushed under some load.
At one time when EVE fixed the damaged Wall-E, replacing the chip that Wall-E was totally re-booted losing his emotion and love for EVE. He simply rolled over the cockroach as if nothing happen when he appeared to be sad the other time. When EVE finally held his hand, it somehow brings back his memory, reformatted to his original self. The touching of hand (sense of touch) is indeed a universal language of love eh?

i chance upon this little stripe kitty with a black cat roaming nearby. A middle age lady was feeding this black cat, when this stripe kitty tried to climb over a steps (of his height) to reach to the other end where the black cat & the food were. Its really hard warming to see how he tired his very best with his fragile body to climb over (was too engrossed in the progress that i forgotten to snap it down @__@). . . anyhoo, i thought the black cat will shooo stripe-y away from the food, but blacky did in fact let stripe-y had his/her portion! WOW, MEL & I were like speechless at the sight. .
quoted frm uncle 'blacky extend the grace he received from the lady to stripe-y'
