From the book of 1 page at a time by Adam J. Kurtz, I did write my secrets in the dark.
Timeless and Universal.
The beautiful scenery of the Korean countryside along with the nostalgic and poignant mood brought the film into very classical and portrays kinds of emotional appeals.
A beautiful journey from the past; about first love memorable moments, friendship, sacrifices, and fate.
The modern tale which brings the story together.
The fair share of laughter and tears.
The character chemistry and acting execution are terrific.
The plot is simple, but it connects itself to your memory.
A movie that should be watched, it will bawl your eyes out at the end.

“The concept of letting go is a part of one’s growth process.
It means to leave the things the way they are and move forward.
In life, you need to let go of many things, at different points of time. You need to realize that life never stops and comes to a halt. It is extremely difficult to do so, but one has to do it repeatedly at different levels, since life calls upon us to do so.
You cannot think about the future or the new happenings in life, if you continue clinging to the old. Ron Taffel had once remarked, “Even as kids reach adolescence, they need more than ever for us to watch over them. Adolescence is not about letting go. It’s about hanging on during a very bumpy ride.”
When relationships or friendship turns sour or any one amongst one’s near and dear ones passes away, we face extreme difficult in letting go such things. Fond memories that leave an indelible impression on our minds are difficult to let go.
Let it go when you’re hurting too much, give up when love isn’t enough, and move on when things aren’t like before. Surely there is something better awaiting to happen.”
Dear Mrs. HY,
I know you don’t like me to be part of your husband’s life. I didn’t get it because it was 20 years ago when we had this young-love relationship. I have tried to be friends with him, but you simply prevented it. And now, it becomes impossible.
I just heard the very bad news, I am sorry for your lost.
I am so sad to hear that he got shot & killed in front of you and the kids, it was the most devastating news I have ever heard. I pray that the authority will find the one who did this to him and to your family soon. I pleaded for you & your children’s safety.
Condolence Mrs. HY. You may have saved me from a huge heartbreak, but truly I am saddened, no one is worthy of this cruelty.
Rest in Peace to you Hamilton. May your soul be at peace with Heavenly Father.
What was the last thing that gave you a real, authentic, tearful, hearty belly laugh? Why was it so funny?
It was the last time when my father sent his message mistakenly to my mother saying “honey, Goodnight, please lock all your doors.”
He was beside her at that time and there’s no way the message was for her. My mom was just so cool that we just kept laughing about it.
Tell us about a time you found out after the fact that you’d been mistaken and you had to eat a serving of humble pie.
When I broke up with my boyfriend, knowing that he will never accept it, just as he always do. Then, he simply agreed to it & never come back again.
It was a funny mistake, but I ate a lot of pie!
Literate for a Day: Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?
I miss you so bad!
I understand now just how silly I was for taking you granted before. I hated to come home early because I thought you bore me that I couldn’t enjoy your silence. Now, I was gone from you for almost seven years & just stayed only 28 days each year with you that makes me sad & regretful for our past relationship.
I wish I could see you every day.
I miss your living room where I can relax comfortably while watching television, or listening to music, or chatting with my family.
I miss your kitchen when there’s no one around to cook, but me.
I miss the dining table to whom I shared with my family during mealtime.
I miss my bedroom where I slept alone restfully.
I miss our second floor that feels me, I’m near in heaven.
I miss everything about you my home.
Forgive me, I took you for granted. You are the best place in the universe!
Indeed, there’s no place like home.
How does it feel to be old? I know it’s not something I can fully understand until it happens to me. I had memories of my grandparents where I felt every frustration when they can’t hear at all, dressed in seemingly slow motion, the repeated stories, the sickness & other emotions where I can’t hardly understand.
And now my Parents are getting on in that stage, as much as possible, I want to understand them and put myself in their shoes. As maybe they are frail, but they are tenacious. Just recently, I feel like my Father is mocking me; of what kind of mother I am to my son & how liberal I am spending on my money & not saving anything in the future. He may seem right on the other side of the story, but for the most, he doesn’t know what I am going through. I may look happy outside, but I am deadly struggling inside.
I am not sure if he intentionally tries to annoy me or it was just a Parental-love mocking advice, but whatever it is. I am hurt. He wasn’t like that before, he was cool, very supportive & positive. I am justifying now that maybe that is what it’s like to be old, where changes starts to take its toll on their body & mind & perhaps he is experiencing the “later life crisis” which I believe a tougher road for them. And since I am their daughter, as I love them, I will bear it all.
Godspeed to my dear Parents. I miss you both.
Happiness…is a smile from a child.
I took a step and didn’t want to take any more, but I did.
To be honest, in my 7 years here in Dubai, I have gone 4 times of moving from one place to another. And I just had my fifth time yesterday. Oh well, It wasn’t easy, physically & financially, it’s all draining.
They said, new house is a new beginning. Is it? I would try to figure it out-again.
