Sad Love, Happy Love

I was driving (read: speeding) on Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge when Lee Seung Chul's "No One Else" blast through my radio. It was sunset; a very phenomenal and romantic sunset. The song fits beautifully into the mood. But this song is associated with one of Korea's best melodramatic movie, "More Than Blue" also known as "A Story Sadder Than Sadness". I cried my heart out; sampai migraine keesokkan harinya.




The movie starts off like any typical melo love movie -- BFF/soul mates (Cream and K are orphans), terminal illness (cancer), noble idiocy (K keeps his feeling for Cream a secret because Cream’s biggest fear is to be left alone) and a hero too good to be truth. Walaupun tipikal, hati dah sedih dan menangis. It was so hard to watch the hero struggling with this feeling and dealing with his illness. The scene where K helps Cream to choose her wedding dress and walk her down the aisle was so heartbreaking.

Then the second part of the movie reveals everything.
What do you know - Cream knows about the K's terminal illness and noble idiocy plan ALL THE WHILE. The only reason why she played along was to grant K's wish: for Cream to find a good and healthy man to spend her life with. Lepas tu barulah filem ni tunjukkan beberapa scene dari perspektif Cream. Masa cuba baju pengantin tu, Cream saja je ambil gambar dengan K -- that is their wedding picture. Then when he walked her down the aisle, she was so happy as if it is their wedding ceremony. The cheerful smile wiped off the moment K hands her to the fiancee. After K's death, Cream commits suicide. Masa scene ni lah aku menangis semahu-mahunya. Dang all the secrets!

Love story? Entahlah. But I guess when we love somebody; we are willing to sacrifice a lot of thing. The world, if we can. Macam K dan Cream. Stupid? Definitely. I'd want to spend my remaining time with someone I love. I'd confess my feeling. I would cherish every moment I have.
But of course, I can totally be like Cream and K. We never know kan...

Enough with this type of love. Cinta yang macam ni satu beban kepada jantung, perasaan dan akal. I've been there. It takes time to heal and restart from it. Bukanlah cinta tu perlu sentiasa gembira sahaja. But you're supposed to love, not to endure something unpleasant. Just saying.

Tak mau sedih-sedih yer. Jom tukar mood dengan lagu yang ceria. This is Lee Seung Chul's "My Love". The MV is a fan's proposal to his girlfriend. Sangat sweet. Tak tahu kenapa, tapi rasa sangat terharu masa part penari balet tu.

Love is supposed to brings the best in you. Not the opposite.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
