No need to count the years of our friendship because we don’t need proof of how we love, appreciate, respect and care for each other.
No need to count the years of our friendship because we don’t need proof of how we love, appreciate, respect and care for each other.
Burying something is quite backbreaking, but if we wanted to change ourselves to a new “me”, then let’s claim the certainty.
I appreciate the bad and the good events in my life. I appreciate the people around me; my family, friends, workmates, and strangers. I appreciate what I had and couldn’t have.
Thank you, Lord, for everything! The last year was challenging but full of blessings.
Happy New Year everyone!!
Based on the popular manga, Oh Ha Ni is a clumsy student who falls for the perfectionist, Baek Seung Jo. However, Seung Jo is indifferent towards her and rejects her love. When Ha Ni’s house collapses, she and her father move into his long-time friend’s house. It turns out that Seung Jo is the friend’s son and Ha Ni is given the opportunity to be near the guy she loves.
There really isn’t much I can say about this drama other than the plot is shallow, but the characters were fun and cute. I think it was enough to justify the show when you expressly enjoyed only the pretty faces of the actors.
In this drama, all you can do is just sit back, don’t mind the empty shell of the story, feel the spirit of being young at heart and enjoy some of the exciting lovely moments.
I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.
It is my favorite thing, I think, that I have ever seen. Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel.
Dark and light striking each other, vividly etching wild colors through the horizon.
The sun rises, the sun falls, the wind blows and the birds sing no matter where you are. These are experiences that unite us all. Something we can all enjoy together.
“I learned that love can end in one night, that great friends can become great strangers, that strangers can become best friends, that we never finish to know and understand someone completely, that the “never ever again” will happen again and that “forever” always ends, that the one that wants it can, will achieve it and get it, that the one that risks it never loses anything.
Cheers to the beauty and madness of life!
Once in a while, be fearless to be careless.
The less you care, the lesser your heart struggle.
Don’t spend too much of holding on to something that you knew it will never be yours.
Don’t let your heart be hustled of those feelings that are unsure.
Careless about those people who have no time to compromise their thoughts for you.
Careless about why someone is smarter than you.
Careless why it didn’t work out.
Let your heart skip a little beat and find your resting place.
Careless about the judgment of people. They’re going to judge you no matter what you do.
Careless about others’ business. Mind your own.
Careless if you have no special talent.
Careless about how horrible your boss is.
Careless about some rules, they are meant to break.
Be careless in your rambling thoughts, that’s how you feel.
Be wise enough to be fearless while being careless, we cannot do this every day in our life. Be control because, at the end of the day, you are still the one responsible for your own feelings.
Be careless if you give your heart and they return it in pieces.
The less you give a damn, the happier you will be.
Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle. Try to keep it under your hat.
Goodbye summer. Hello, winter.
Al Mamzar Park is my favorite beach park here in Dubai. They have all the facilities you needed for; beach amenities, barbeque areas, swimming pools, children game areas and etc. Entrance fees are reasonable for AED 5 per person, AED 30 per car and free for people with special needs and kids below 2 years old.
If you don’t want to mingle with the big crowd, it is better to go on weekdays (Sunday-Thursday) and Saturday. Friday is too crowded since it’s a weekend here in Dubai.
Let’s enjoy the beach! the weather is kinda super nice.
Sea Food Fiesta!
Share the blessings with anyone!
“After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
Let’s enjoy life, eat well and laugh often!
I think I have learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. True friendship reveals itself through adversity.
I know that day seems all went wrong.
For you, it was a sudden and thorny condition to be acknowledged. That’s how this life appears to be; straight and suddenly throwing you curve balls and getting you into a string of pieces. I know you are terrified, we are. Cancer is horrifying.
But we know you are strong and filled with so much faith. We believe that everything will end very fine. I don’t know how to comfort you in words, but never forget that you are always within our prayers. God will hear us and will never abandon you.
I will be keeping fingers crossed for your successful and speedy recovery. The thought that you will be much better after this trial is very comforting to all of us.
Until then, don’t fall in there.
Finally, summer is about to end. While the Starks from Game of thrones prepared for the winter with warning and vigilance, for us, it is the most anticipated season of the time.
Since the weather in UAE is starting to get cooler especially at night with less humidity, the gang decided to have our first change season outdoor activity away from home.
We headed to Umm Al-Quwain open beach which is perfect for a night-time barbecue, crabbing, swimming and storytelling with friends.
Such a wonderful feeling to just lay on the sand, thinking nothing else for a while.
Beachside around 8:00 in the morning. No one was able to meet the sunrise.
This little guy woke up before us and enjoying most of his time walking, swimming and playing in the sand.
Happiness is walking on the beach.
If you were stung by a Jellyfish, I’d totally pee on you.
Clear your mind of CAN’T.
Be your own kind of beautiful.
Only dead fish go with the flow.
If you don’t drink how will your friends know you love them at 2:00 am?
“Sometimes in life, you find a special friend.
Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. Someone who makes you believe that something is really good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.
When you’re down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Someone who changes your life just by being part of it.
Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay.
Those are forever friendship.
If you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend and forever has no end.”
We always teased them that they won’t last together, pestering the guy that he doesn’t deserve her or advising the girl to leave him as soon as she can. Of course, there was no issue at all. Merely, we are just being playful with them and they knew it.
I’ve known them for more than four years now and I still find them cool and comfy to be with. We lived together in one roof before and I can’t think any bad scenario I had with them. That’s why I hate those people who judge them easily without any significant reasons.
This sweetheart has been together for a long time. I don’t know what is the secret, but I think it’s about how they behave with each other. I’m pretty sure that they are the best of friends and they can laugh at themselves when life throws them curves. I have never seen them shouting nor insulting each other in front of people. Maybe because they keep their arguments private and resolved by their own. I never heard them speaking ill to each other, and seeing like this, is such a beautiful sight.
We are just waiting for them to ring the bells. Until then, the teasing will never stop and it’s okay, because we knew, they sheltered enough their relationship with love and trust.
Hopefully, no storms can hit them down.
Jae-ho (Sol Kyung-gu), who aims to become the number one in a crime organization, gets to build-Vup trust with Hyun-su (Im Si-wan), an ambitious newbie in the prison. While they try to take over the organization after the prison release, their ulterior motives start to emerge.
This movie is all about the violent underworld of gangsters, moles, and cops where the plot evolves in friendship and betrayal between a prisoner leader and a new inmate.
The two leads team up to take over a gang when they will be out of the prison. As the story progress to the reality of their goal, unspoken tensions became burning and you will never sure who’s got the upper hand at the end.
With the great charisma of the two leads, I wasn’t able to feel the stomach-churning scenarios, maybe I was used to it when it comes to Korea action movie. The cinematography is stunning and the action sequences impressively were done. The essence of the plot is collective, but the great deal is, it was well presented and executed.
as Hyun-soo as Byung-gab as Chun In-sook as Byung-Verdict: 8/10
A little mute girl from a Pakistan village gets lost on her return back from a trip to India. In Kurukshetra, she meets Pawan – a devout Hanuman Bakth – who is in the midst of a challenge posed by his lover’s father. In trying to discover her parents, he develops an unshakable bond with the kid. He tries to get into Pakistan through a path righteous to his conscience and later, with a smart Pakistani news reporter for a company and makes the search, a story that captures the imagination of the public in both countries.
This movie is totally comedic, sincere and warm. You will feel your heart gently melting like a marshmallow in the pan. This film promotes humanity and friendship where togetherness between the two nation and religion (India and Pakistan) were emphasized. There is really nothing wrong to help someone in need no matter what is your status in life.
Expected for an Indian movie, there is still dancing scenes with their colorful attires, but this time it wasn’t that long. The acting is quite decent, they managed to deliver on most effect. And this little Pakistani girl, every time I saw her face on the screen, I uttered words of admiration, she’s really pretty and she has gorgeous eyes.
For this movie, I give it 9/10. The storyline is predictable in the middle, but it is a feel-good film to watch.
There are no perfect housemates. For nine years of living here in Dubai, going here and there from different flats and been with different kinds of people, my life has never been that easy. It certainly tests the level of my patience and defies my endurance to survive.
Having a housemate not related to you was fun and quite annoying, tiring but challenging and the same time it gives you experience, friendship, and learning. Based on my experience, here are the types of housemates I came across.
THE NOISY ONE. A kind of housemate who doesn’t care if someone is sleeping or having a rest as long as they can do whatever they want like they wouldn’t stop talking or playing music aloud. They love to disturb anyone.
THE DIRTY FREAK. Oh, a lot of them! Someone who left the dishes and pots on the sink, and never clean the house even though there is a house cleaning schedule. Always ignoring the piles of garbage and never initiates to clean their surroundings. They are someone who acts like they have a maid.
THE PLANNER. The mind of the whole household. This will make your stay fun and exciting. They usually organize your getaway, parties or any other activities inside and outside your household.
THE THEFT. Someone who has a thick face. They will take your food in the fridge, your shampoo, toothpaste, water and much worse, your money. Never leave your important things unsecured.
THE CHEF. I love to have a chef housemate. They will not only prepare food for themselves, but they love to share it with their housemates.
THE GHOST. They are the ones you feel never existed in the house. They never complain, they just do their works. They stay at the house, eat, sleep and just leave anytime they want to without saying goodbye to everyone. You’re never sure of the whereabouts of this housemate.
THE GOSSIPER. This is the person I definitely do not want to be a housemate. They will try to know everybody else business. They are truly a pain in the ass.
THE BULLY. Someone who has nothing better to do than to torment their housemates in any chance they can. Tips, at the moment they’ll try to mess around, never give them the liberty to do it -again.
THE BUYER. This is common to some expat. Since the sale is always on the go here in Dubai, people tend to buy dozens of things but will send them to their home country after 6 months or more. This will consume the space of the shared room and it becomes untidy.
THE PARTY ANIMAL. This is very common in all the flats I have stayed. You’ll often hear this person complaining about their hangover all the time, but still, they never missed out every single day to party.
THE NOCTURNAL. This is me your housemate. Usually, on weekends, I stay all day in my bed. At night I became active. That’s the time I clean my bed, do the laundry, doing this and some sort of things that normal people can do in the daytime.
Coming from different backgrounds and upbringing, we are always bound to meet all kinds of personality when we live together under one roof, for very reasons we must need to prepare ourselves. Don’t worry, you might get used to it.
We all experienced anger. If some words tossed out with annoyance, it would flare up the temper. It is impossible also to clear the issue when we are in the midst of an emotional tornado.
I’ve been there, I regret few of what I have said. I have learned my lesson, let me strike the iron when it is cold.
This drama was overloaded with cuteness from the plot down to our main cast. If you are looking for a romance to fill in, this definitely will do a good job for you.
When our protagonist dumped by her boyfriend exactly 3:30 PM, her long time childhood friend was in the rescue to lift up her spirit and made a project called Wednesday 3:30 pm.
This drama will make you smile through out the whole episode. It features a beautiful morality about love and friendship. The chemistry is superb, full of charisma and the scenery was astounding. And I liked the concept of their Wednesday project, it’s out of ordinary.
If you want to watch something cute, uncomplicated and quick, this mini drama is for you.
“I am still learning how to separate myself from people who aren’t on the same page as me.”
Honestly, this is not simple. There are things to contemplate before letting go of yourself to someone. It is not like someone ask you to give them space, I think that would be easier for me, but I am the only one who wants to detach myself from people that I cannot get along with anymore.
Actually, nothing really happens badly that I would think of this way, but I woke up one day that I could see the difference. You know, like when you don’t have any more to talk about and laugh. Unlike before when you were just sitting together, it doesn’t matter if you do have a conversation or not, the sense of comfort was still there. And I’m feeling the contrary now.
So I am starting to separate myself from them. Hoping one day they will ask why and I can tell them the naked truth.
Sad to say, the best hit has never had the chance to get a high rate till the show has ended. But why did I completed the 16 series? Since it was very light and cute, I found myself enjoying it without expecting lavish and never made a complaint. I just went with the flow.
Honestly, there is a big potential in this drama if it was just presented with direction, surprising twist and turns and more discoveries to our leads. Though this drama has the concept of time travel, the lack of story development has been scored. Few questions left unanswered and it’s up to you to analyze the whole thing or you can just go on with your life.
What I enjoyed most in this drama are all the fresh faces of the whole cast. Music was very best too. Love theme? Nah I don’t buy it. Friendship bonding? a big yes. Family relationship? a plus-plus.
So if you want to watch this drama, go on and enjoy. Just don’t expect too much because you might not get the best hit.
My juggling act between being a dad, a boss, and pursuing my passion for adventure.
