What do you do when there are too many!

I've always felt that Malaysians are a fortunate bunch! We grow up immerse in a variety of languages that we pick up when we are young (always easier when your brain is not stuffed with too many things!).
When you were young, it was all about cartoons and comics (well, let me throw in books and novels in the bunch!). As you age with time, I find myself slowly becoming a permanent member of the "Couch Potato" club.

Now that wouldn't have been so bad if not for the fact that you can understand several languages. Suddenly, you are hit with firstly TVB series since you understand Cantonese, and then you have series from Taiwan and China due to your understanding of Mandarin, add huge splashes of western series such as "Lost", "Desperate Housewives", "Prison Break" etc....

How are you suppose to keep up to date with all these shows when you only have that many hours in a day! Not to mention that life can't be just about TV shows. So now you have to be able to squeeze in TV shows in 4 languages while having a rocking social life and being dedicated to work.

My oh my! Life is full of funny twists and puzzles aren't they?
