“One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is,
I think, to have a happy childhood.”
That is me. I had a happy childhood which I always look back to with fond memories.
Even though I was fully aware of our financial struggles at that time, with our parent’s disagreements, siblings arguments and when I couldn’t have the things I wanted, this sort of things never stops me from becoming a normal happy person. Why? because my parents allowed me to fill my childhood memories with excitement, adventure, challenges and a lot of time to play despite their shortcomings and lapses.
I have so many precious memories of my childhood; outdoors in the dark with moonlight seeing, climbing high up the trees, riding bikes in the streets, making wood guns, street games, hide and seek with friends, digging holes at the beach, jumping in the waves, summer spent in the countryside, reading pocket novels, infatuation, and some church activities. In those years, a lot to said about how good life was.
And now getting old makes me yearn for the simplicity of life. I want to feel that every new day is more interesting than the last. I want to turn back time as a child when I have only to believed that nothing was impossible, that small things seem big of importance. When all my fears just fade away, and only the cuts from my knees getting me pain. I want to remember the joy with which my mother’s touch gave me tranquility or my father’s beautiful kiss on my cheek.
I wish “I could take a single childhood memory and blow it up into a bubble and live inside it forever.”
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.”
If your heart hurts a little after letting go of someone or something, that’s okay. It just means that your feelings were genuine. No one likes ends. And no one likes pain.
But sometimes we have to put things that were once good to an end after they turn toxic to our wellbeing. Not every new beginning is meant to last forever. And not every person who walks into your life is meant to stay.
Twelve years, after dying in a car accident, Sung Hae Sung (Yeo Jin Goo) suddenly appears alive and well not having aged a day. With the help of his friends and his childhood love Jong Won (Lee Yeon-Hee), Hae Sung sets out to make things right for his family and solve the mysteries surrounding his death and resurrection.
Reunited Worldsis far from a perfect drama. Though the plot was quite stimulating, along with the way it became sluggish with flaws and inconsistencies. I was about to drop it honestly, but then I want to know how it would end, hoping a spark might light up before the whole episode turned into a merely passing show.
What I like in this drama is the beautiful message about love,friendship, and family. As our main lead resurrected to solve the mystery of his death, he has to help his siblings to be reunited too.
The finale didn’t stand up as I expected, but it was good enough. The writer must be very generous to give them all redemption.
Yeo Jin Goo acting is astonishing and flawless.
I like the friendship between the six friends, their relationship is warm and very supportive of each other.
I don’t find any chemistry of our lovey-dovey. Lee Yeon Hee’s acting is dry and flimsy.
I know it is difficult for you, as it is for me, to be separated for so long. The longer I am away from you, the greater is my yearning to be with you again. This has got to be harder than anything that I have ever done, being this close to you but yet so far away.
I had to write to you today and, in a way, try to sooth this feeling that took over me so strongly. To miss someone is something you can’t explain; and being in a painful consequence of love, it may even be harder to describe than love itself.
I needed to tell you how much I am missing you today and how good it would make me feel to have your skin close to mine, to hold hands, to feel your breath and to look into your eyes. I miss the simple things, yet simple as they may be, they can only come true when you are near.
Until that moment arrives, I send to you across the miles, my tender love and my warm embrace.
Aoi and Riku are childhood friends attending the same college. For most of his life, Riku has secretly had access to a mysterious vinyl record, belonging to his uncle, which he uses to travel back in time to correct embarrassing events. When Aoi is killed in a traffic accident, Riku attempts to use the record to save her life.
Turning back the clock will appeal to anyone who has ever wished to do over something again, but this film highlighted that you cannot change what is destined for you.
Honestly, my eyes were bawling while watching this movie. I feel the profound love of our protagonist to save his girl’s life while she was pleading for him to let her go. The death of our loved ones must be our greatest fear and yet, life must go on for those who are left behind.
I like the film’s simplicity and direct message. The good memories that we’ve experienced and the taste of living our life to the fullest with someone we love is sometimes filled with bittersweet.
I recommend this movie for those who wants to have a good cry with the best music on the background.
It is very rare for a drama movie that makes you think at the end. If you want that kind of genre, then this film is perfect for you.
The plot is very exceptional and peculiar. One of the main characters Emmi comes from a parallel universe where time flows in the opposite direction of this universe. She has to meet Takatoshi only 30 days for every 5 years. When they both reached the same age of 20 which is only once in the entire cycle, their love story begins and unfold the mystery. You must watch it from the beginning to end, and everything will make sense.
This film makes me think about the situation of our two main characters and the poignant consequences of their fate. It gives me a realization of the unfathomable reality of life, that time steals away all of the opportunities we get if we don’t take advantage of them when they come. Just like with our protagonist, 30 days wouldn’t be enough to be together, and yet they made everything possible out of it.
The story is unconventional, and yet my heart still aches.
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.
When my son asked my permission to join the Taekwondo team which I ranted from my previous post.Never as I insisted, but well, that’s not what had happened.
One of our fellow bloggers mentioned that it’s better for him to get hurt in a tournament rather than in a street brawl, I couldn’t agree more. So here he comes, he was included in the school match and you know what? he got the bronze!
I don’t have any expectation from him since it was his first match. I just kept on reminding him to be strong, competitive and be a good sport. When he told me he got only the third place, I assured him that he was good enough. Not all the first timer will achieve something like that. In response, he wants to practice more, and I agreed.
Of course, I am proud of him and I love his spirit. I love the way he insisted to do what he likes, something that I didn’t do when I was at his age. But then, not everything he wants will be in front of him; not all the games he can win and not all the time, he can lose.
I know both of us have a long way to go. Parenting is an endless job for me and he still has to learn how to play the game of life.
Congratulations on your first kick son. The full support is in me now.
A woman named Seo Ji-Woo (Lim Soo-Jung) traveled to India and met her first true love Kim Jong-Ok. Since that time Ji-Woo can’t forget her first love. She then turns to the company of “Finding Your First True Love Company” to help track down Kim Jong-Ok.
Han Gi-Joon (Gong Yoo) started “Finding Your First True Love Company” and he takes on Seo Ji-Woo as the company’s first client. The pair travel all over Korea to find Seo Ji-Woo’s first love and & in the process Han Gi-Joon finds himself falling in love with his first client.
A movie that is about tracking down a long-lost love and found a new love unexpectedly. The plot is nothing extraordinary, but it was Gong Yoo that made it considerable to watch. A little bit of confusion about the first love character since they have both used same face with the main lead.
The plus point in this movie is; the chemistry’s blended well. The cinematography was excellent. Flashbacks location was taken from India, so some scenes are filled with warm hues and bright colors that are fresh for our eyes.
An overall great movie to unwind after long days of work.
If happens you are in Dubai and you want to go to an authentic Korean restaurant, well, I recommend this place, Seoul Garden Dubai Restaurant. It was clean, with the decent price, the Korean foods are lovely and the taste was unexpectedly better.
The serving is huge which is good for sharing, the ambiance is quiet and there is a room for privacy. You may choose to sit on a chair or experience sitting on the floor in partitioned rooms too.
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.
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.
It was such a lovely day. All her friends and family gathered together to celebrate the most awaiting day. Never in her life, she imagined she would meet someone exactly the person she longs to have; good, kind and handsome. Not that he only accepted her, but everyone around in her life. It was the miracle she was wishing for. To have someone who will call her own.
Everyone is smiling, wishing them well, sharing the incontestable feelings as if their prayers have been answered as well. There was no hesitation, no looking back because the past is something to be learned, but the present is more significant.
Promises are made, but not to be broken.
Love will never be weakened.
Always ready to face the approaching dares and will never forget the affirmations made.
Love is made to be loyal, faithful and joyful.
It must be respected. It needs to be enjoyed.
“I have prepared everything in my life, but you, I never see you coming. You are my most favorite surprise.” He said.
I woke up with the sound of my alarm clock, damn, we should have kissed!
They said grandparents have the tendency to spoil their grandchildren, their love becomes twice and they will love you more than anyone else. But for my Lola (grandmother), she does the opposite and has her own ways of showing her love by imposing strict discipline.
She taught me how to pray, not my mom, but her. We prayed the holy rosary every night and sometimes at dawn which I really hated. There was no Sunday too that we didn’t go to church, whether you like it or not.
It was a struggle also that I am not allowed to wake up after 6:00 am. She gave me the responsibility to prepare for breakfast, clean the house, do the laundry and water the plants.
I can have friends, but they were not allowed to visit at home without her permission. She has to check first their background before saying yes, and of course no boys obviously.
I had all these memories when I live with her for more than a year and during summer vacations.
My Lola was a woman of discipline because she was raised and influenced by Spanish upbringing which we called Kastila style. She has dominating character and very authoritarian. More over, my grandfather was intimated with her intellectual and cleverness, even her five children feared her to the most.
But I know, despite, she has the greatest love for all. She always thinks of her children’s wellness. She worked hard to support their education and chased them to graduate. She always reminded them to live a decent life and be released from poverty. Simply she doesn’t want the children to be like her; unschooled and deprived.
When my Lola died, everyone was settled and lead a good life. They even bought her a house which she really desired. When she got sick and became more grumpy due to her goiter illness, still everyone braced her not for the reason they were afraid, but because she was a good mother.
I think I am her favorite granddaughter because she always appears in my dreams. She still there asking me to clean her house, water the plants and for no reason, lectured me which I rarely remember why.
Today is my Lola’s birthday. May she has the happiest party in heaven.
She was awarded “A MODEL MOTHER OF THE YEAR 1997” in the town of Bacuag Surigao Del Norte. A lifetime achievement, perhaps, one in a million mothers could achieve. – VJE
