TO MY ONE & ONLY

To my one and only,

I Appreciate you being a sport minded person. From wrestling and boxing as your passing hobbies, then basketball, which we both liked and you enjoyed most.

This time, I allowed you to join the Taekwondo training thinking it would only be a past time for you, but when you asked my permission to join the school tournament as a representative of your level, I never say YES. We argued about it and you are mad at me.

I don’t care if you’d think I never supported you. How can I allow my one and only to get hurt with kicks and punches and who knows what will happen out there? Call me selfish, but I just love you that I couldn’t even bear to think you would be physically hurt. You knew my reasons, and it will never change.

As a Parent, we encourage our kids to do the things they truly enjoyed and promise them to support in any ways we can, but what if we don’t agree in the dreams they have chosen? and they thought we are the one who’s blocking their path to success?

Truly, it is a challenge to guide them while being objective about our own feelings as a Parent.

FIGHT FOR MY WAY (K-drama 2017)

Fight_for_My_Way-p02

Fight for my way is a kind of drama which you can totally relate. It has the story of our very own which we walked every day with struggles, failures, and achievement in our lives. It features, the chances to attain what has missed by giving up on our dreams and love. It's good to be true that after all, it's not too late to have what we want.

I like all the cast in this drama, it suits them all. The individual characters have their own stories to tell in their own limelight. What I like is their friendship bond, you'd wish you grew up with them too.

Overall, this drama is refreshing to watch. They were all cute and entertaining.

Verdict: 8/10

 

Main Cast:

Park Seo-joon as Ko Dong-man

Kim Ji-won as Choi Ae-raAhn Jae-hong as Kim Joo-man

Song Ha-yoon as Baek Seol-hee

 

THE LIAR and HIS LOVER

I’m not going to lie. I really don’t like this drama in the Korean version.

I love musical drama, but in here, the music seems to become exhausted because conflict is an integral part of the plot, it was overloaded to handle.

For the first few episodes, it was fun to watch, but then they failed the consistency to set back the settings of what a musical drama should be.  The balance of melody has been turned off and the harmony vanished by adversities.

Only this drama showcase an enjoyable music list and fresh faces. Aside from that, nothing stands.

Verdict: 6/10

I DREAM OF YOU.

A green, elongated, legless with deadly eyes has been chasing me for hours.  I know what it is. I know it can cause my death. I’m so terrified, I couldn’t even scream for help. I can still move, run here and there, avoiding to be swallowed, outing for my survival.  Then, unexpectedly, the poisonous eyes closed, down to the ground, wheezing and now it has been put inside the box; locked and isolated, probably lifeless.

I saw him. He had the bat. He strikes and killed the venomous snake.  He’s my knight in shining armor. I wonder who he was, he wasn’t familiar at all. I never had the chance to thank him, or even asked his name.

When he can still sense that I am still frightened, he unlocked the box and grip the snake out. With his strong hand, he jiggled it and said, “see, it’s dead”.

I glared at it, making sure it would never come back to me. But all of a sudden the dead serpent turned into a human being – the face of the person I truly hate; the gossiper, the traitor, the pretender and self-righteous ex-friend.

I know, she’s always been the serpent.

I woke up with the happy hiss. I’m glad she was dead in my dream.

Don’t Give Up

There is hope and greater purpose to your life. Sometimes, it is better to be a miracle for someone else, than to receive a miracle in your circumstances. I honestly didn’t think miracles could ever come from my broken pieces, and I was disabled by fear that my dreams would always remain a dream.

Don’t give up on you.

Don’t give up on God.

Don’t give up on love.

The Beginning.

I wasn’t pretending that night.  I just don’t want to stop you.

7b64c3f71e45359a42a612a24fef8c13

I had no intention to like you, it just happened out of nowhere. I admit I had a bad moment with my past love, settling my heart in forceful resolution, thinking it would just pass, looking for something I could divert off and hoping to forget at least a few minutes of my sad life.

I was drinking too much that night, swaying my blues over the facade charmed of alcohol while clinging to your shoulder.  Yes, I was drunk, but I know, how it feels good to touch you.

7c137a197ba074d34f0494fd95ffe097

I felt dizzy and was about to flop, but you were there leading me to my bedroom, holding me close.  I know it was you and not him.  It wasn’t hard to recognize the difference; the smell, the touch, the grip…

da287f5bb518df852e7c6ecb5a88301c

You were smoothing my hair… whispering me to sleep. No way I can’t stop you, that’s been all I need, you have comforted me.

d8aca3dbfb8d1e63f4a04c6f71a41630

Then I felt your lips on my head. It was enough to let me sleep.

I know tomorrow will never be the same my friend. I know.

Time Will Come

New York is 3 hrs ahead of California but it does not mean that California is slow, or that New York is fast. Both are  working based on their own “Time Zone.”

Someone is still single. Someone got married and waited 10 yrs before having a child, there is another who had a baby within a year of marriage.

Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately.

Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.

Everyone works based on their ‘Time Zone’.

People can have things worked out only according to their pace. You just have to work in your “time zone”.

Your Colleagues, friends, younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you. Maybe some might “seem” behind you.

Don’t envy them or mock them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’  You are in yours!

Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not late. You are not early. You are very much On time.”

MY SURVIVAL IS MY SUCCESS.

IMG_1400.JPG

What is success? How do I define it with my own experience and defeats? Well, I have my own definitions, maybe most of you would not agree.

I only considered success when I was at school, fantasizing I could achieve anything when I fly out to the real world.  At this instant, I ceased to think about it – anymore.  I am in the midst of battle, and when you are in combat, you could no longer think of success, but only how to live and to survive.

“Success is the achievement of something planned or attempted.

Survival is staying alive or in existence despite of.”

I just thought, success is only for those who have enormous courage to fight for their own dreams – from those who have tried to block their victory and even have the ability to control their destiny. Success is not to those who are afraid to take risks, who has only limited imaginations, not for those who can’t fully trust themselves and who worries too much to fail.

You can have success if you are brave.

 You can survive if you don’t choose.

How can I be successful when I am just following the flow, when lifting the burden only I can carry. I don’t go beyond what I cannot do. I have never tried to surpass afar. I am just too comfortable in my comfort zone.

My survival is my success.

Where She Went

images

It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.

If you have read the first book “If I Stay” or had watched the movie, then you need to know what happens next after Mia opened her eyes.

Where She Went, is the aftermath of Mia’s recovery and the pain of Adam’s promise. For me, the second book  was much better than the first. The emotions were so intense that you must understand what was really going on between their hearts, why the comfort from the warmth of each other had separated them.

What’s next?
Where she went?
What happened to him?
What awaits them?

If you want to find out, just read.

 

if_i_stay
If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band; go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that too. .. And that would suck, but I’ll do it. I can lose you like that, if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay. – Adam’s Promise

Verdict: 9/10

TIME ENDS

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”

– from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Never I have tried to quit something that I like. It would only stop when time helps to be.

“Don’t stuck in your own little world because the purpose of life is to explore and experience.”

Fearless Fantasies

If I were incapable of feeling fear right now,  I’m pretty sure I have so much things to share & be proud of, or maybe I would be dead too.

I have lots of fearless fantasies, fantasies that I know would never happen to me.

  1. Bull Riding – I want to beat the the most dangerous eight seconds in sports.
  2. Base Jumping – Love to boast a stunt in the air.
  3. Scuba Diving
  4. Big Wave Surfing
  5. Water Rafting – I’m afraid of being pushed or thrown into a body of water and I can’t swim in the deep ocean too!
  6. Mountain Climbing – I want to climb the world’s highest peak Mount Everest!
  7. Car Racing while being Drunk!

I know, i know some people have done that and I envy them for they have lots of spirits & guts to do what they like. Me? would be forever fearful of such.

The Daily Prompt: Fearless Fantasies

Sing it baby!

 

When I was seven years old, I signed up for piano lessons, but it doesn’t last. I couldn’t remember why, but as a kid, I know I have enjoyed it even though I have never gone into the recitals.

I also tried to strike the guitar chord, but it didn’t last even. I just tried it for my enjoyment then.  The fact is, I like music, but musical instruments don’t like me at all. I always envy those who can play any musical instruments flawlessly, it’s always been one of my dreams.

So now, I just play my own instrument (mouth)  by singing in karaoke bars or at home. At least my voice  doesn’t sounds suck.  “,)

MONDAY QUOTES

Monday-Quotes

Don’t let today’s trouble bring you down.

Don’t let life’s little obstacles keep you from trying.

Don’t let your fears keep you from dreaming.

Don’t give up for any reason.

IMAGINARY PROMISES

It was such a lovely day. All her friends & family gathered together to celebrate the most awaiting day! Never in her life she imagined she would meet someone exactly the person she hopes to have; good, kind  & handsome. Not that he only accepted her, but everything & everyone around in her life. It was the miracle she was hoping for. To have someone who will call her own.

Everyone is smiling, wishing them well, sharing the incontestable feelings as if their prayers has been answered as well.  There was no hesitation, no looking back because the past is something to be cherished but the present is more significant,  to be alive.  Promises are made; but not to be broken instead to be their guide & assurance that love will never be weaken, ready to fight for the approaching dares & will never forget the promises made.

Love is made to be loyal, faithful & joyful. It must be respected, It needs to be enjoyed.

“I have prepared everything in my life but you, I didn’t see you coming. You are my most favorite surprise in my life”. He said.

“And you keep me waiting worthwhile”. She said with teary eyes.

I shut my eyes, it’s almost 2 am, have to end my wishful fantasy.

5 Current Goals – DAY 8

MY 5 CURRENT GOALS

Whoa! I never thought about this, not until today.  Maybe because I don’t anticipate so much for my future goals, kind of afraid of disappointment and I am impatient to hang around.  But today, I will think about it and be motivated to attain them.

So here it goes..

1. NEXT YEAR VACATION TO PHILIPPINES.  There’s no place like home. I miss my family. I miss everything in there.

2. VISIT SINGAPORE AND BORACAY.  I want to compensate myself after years of hard work.

3. CATCH UP AN OLD FRIENDS.   I may find and meet new friends, but I can’t replace the old ones.  I miss spending time with them, talking and saying “do you remember when…?”  And laugh about it.

4. SALARY INCREMENT.  Of course I really need it.  Expenses are getting high.

5. TO BE RICH.  I know this is quite impossible but who knows?  By then, I can go home, take care of my son, can help others and enjoy our days.

So that’s all my current goals. Whether they are big or small, they have vast significance in my life.
