Maybe you are sleeping soundly right now and we’re not. You run away from home with frustrations and anger in your heart. You might think this is the best way you can catch me up, and yes baby you got me right.

Sorry that I am not good enough. That I am not always there when you needed someone when trouble comes up. Sorry that you feel alone and couldn’t help, because I am far away and there’s no easy way to reach you before long.

I just pray that God will take you back home, and realized that it’s nobody’s fault. I pray that in your next life you’ll find a parent that you deserve, will always there to guide you, nurture you, will not leave you and take care of you.

I am sorry that I am your mom. I hope in your next life you’ll get the very best one!

Take care and be back home soon.


Eid al-Adha Celebration

It’s holiday!

We will leave the busy and hustle street in Dubai right now in celebration with our Muslim’s festival, the Eid al-Adha.  We are heading to one of the seven Emirates States of the UAE, Ajman.  I might share something about it after my returns.


What is Eid al-Adha? 

“It is called the “Sacrifice Feast” where it honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, as an act of obedience to God’s command. Before he sacrificed his son God intervened by sending his angel Jibra’il (Gabriel), who then put a sheep in his son’s place. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: the family retains one-third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends, and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy”

I haven’t celebrated this festivity with a Muslim friend so I cannot share anything about it. But I would like to greet our fellow friends to have a wonderful celebration and may all our prayers be answered with Allah.







Cast: Jeon Do-Yeon / Gong Yoo

A chance encounters with two people who are not free to love, who met at the right place but at the wrong time.

A one night stand that develops into something deeper.

Sweet and intimate moments you will never forget.

This movie showcases a piece of real life. Maybe this is not for everyone.  Maybe most of us would not understand.

As our protagonist struggle to follow their heart’s desire, you will realize the path is very difficult.  There are some sacrifices you have to swallow hard because, at the end of the day, it’s not just about you anymore.

A man and a woman is beautifully made. There are only a few dialogues, but everything is well conveyed.  A very emotional conflict of harsh reality.

Verdict: 9/10


The Classic was just beautiful. 


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.

Verdict: 9/10

ON THE WAY TO THE AIRPORT (K-drama 2016) Finale


On the way to the airport augment a controversial discussion from the commentary boxes as an adultery themed show which is not appropriate to be exposed. Some passed their opinions how horrible it could be to support such kind of a drama. But wait? Have you seen the whole story before judging the book by its cover?

Well, I was officially sold by this drama, it was morally written and significantly more than just an affair. It deals with one of the major issues and crisis of our society which has been increasing rapidly – Marital Problems – that leads to family separation, annulment of marriage and or divorce.

Mind this that the show is not a lovey-dovey, but for those who are starved of affection, love, support, understanding, and connection to their spouses.  The plot is deeper; some episodes will make you uncomfortable, sympathizing what is not right, it would actually make you grin and tremble, you got stuck in the traffic of your own principles, try to toss stones at women who wanted to escape from misery, but eventually you will believe that there is more than of emotional attraction in this world, that there is limit of everything and the feeling alone of being together is unbearable.

On the way to the airport was well directed. Though everything is heightened with sensitivity, but it was carefully executed.  The cast performances are amazingly convincing, they are beautiful and sophisticated despite the controversial concept of it.

I recommend for you to watch this drama. It serves as an eye opener to everyone that marriage is not a bed of roses. It conveys that marriage comes with hiccups and sometimes hurricanes. It never asked us to be unfaithful to our partners when we are in the midst of difficulties, but helps us see the other way around; the cause and effect, the solutions and decisions.

On the way to the airport wanted to reminds us that we should always be affectionate, appreciative and respect our partners, and if problem comes, we should settle it by listening to each other woes and finding solutions. In case, it becomes hopeless, loveless and helpless, our heart will tell us what we need to do, and that we have the right to decide for our own happiness.


Verdict: 9/10

The innocent man (Korean-2012)

“The wounds I carry, she carries them too. The unshed tears in my head flow through her heart too.” – Ma Ru

Sorry, but this drama didn’t hit my heart. It never brought a huge twist, never a single jaw-dropping surprises and no mind-boggling story-line. Most of the episodes reveals all that we saw coming.  I think, it will become far better if they should have ended it until episode 16 because after that everything was dragging.

However, the acting was great and the characters are well played.

Is there such a thing as nice guy? Let me meet him 🙂

My verdict is: 7/10










“Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.
In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most.

Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.”

After I read the first 10 pages of this book, I was like hoping to finish it at the earliest, but then I realized, I need to read slowly, understand it and learn from it especially it speaks of life’s hardships and the difficult choices one must make.

MOM You are Great.

One of the hardest journeys of being a mother is not to see your children growing every day. Your absence in their first step, birthdays, special occasions, school children-parents activities, first circumcision and menstruation, graduation and the rest.One of the sacrifices of being a mother is the need to prioritize her children before herself. What makes a mother feel disastrous is when she sees her children unhappy and unsuccessful.

A lot of stuff to describe the importance of our mother in our lives, no matter who they are and what they have done, they deserve to be called the GREATEST MOM!

A celebration for all mothers who are away from their families and to those who are lucky enough to be with them!

Happy mother’s day to all!
