Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

Yesterday  I went to  the cinema for P.S I love you supposedly with Denise except she had an emergency so I went on my own. The film was okay - Hilary Swanks was a treat as was Cathy Bates. The men were good eye candy. However I had to watch the movie at the far right of the cinema even when all the seats in the front 4 rows were practically empty because they had designated two wheelchair spaces at both ends.

I was livid. I paid full price so what did I have to have crappy seats? So I sat bang right in the middle at the ailse at the back of those 4 rows before the ticket man came and said I was blocking the exit. What exit I asked him - there was loads of space around me but he said I should complain but he had to obey management. I gave up in the end and went to the end of the ailse - still not the designated seats. There was a young teenaged girl at the other end - she was not in her designated seat neither. But I think I embarrased her by my protest. I didn't want to miss the film so I actually didn't make as much noise as i could have done.

At the end of the showing i complained to the manager - I should ask for the address and send it in writing but I couldnt be bothered. I suggested they took better seats. After nobody would choose to sit in those designated seats - so is that not discrimination if they made those designated seats for wheelchair users?
