The link between love and choice.

It's amazing to see how people would do anything for their loved ones. Just the other day I watched Spiderman the Third, Shrek the Third and Toy Story the Third (too). Yeah it was great that all my favourite movies were aired on tv this holiday though I'd already watched them before. Nice, I would say! :)

Back to what I was saying, the theme for all the movies, in my conclusion, were about love and choice. In Spidey, the Sandman robbed banks and people to get some funding for his ill daughter. He confessed it was not something he wanted to do, but he had no choice as he was desperate for money. In the same movie, Harry Osborn decided to help his best friends - Peter Parker and Mary Jane out in the nick of time, although he was hurt seeing them together and the fact that Parker killed his father. In Shrek, Shrek's love towards Fiona and his swamp - which meant LIFE to him - made him strive to get to the other part of the world just to get someone to replace him as the Far Far Away king (since he thought he didn't suit to become one). The latter, it was about the toys' love towards Andy their owner, and to each other. They were willing to do anything in order to save the other person. (err should I say the other toy's life?)

I know that they are just movies and I've heard people say that stories in movies don't appear in real lives. For me, movies are like a getaway where we tell stories of what happened or what we want to happen. Put aside those illogical elements such as Dragonballs with its 7 balls. Err. The main thing here is what we get from the stories told. Cause I'm not into the idea of watching a movie just for the sake of 'watching a movie'. Good movies should make us think. So you can tell why I adore the late Yasmin Ahmad's films, heh? ;)

Life is all about love and choice. In any road we take, there's a diversion at the end of it that we got to choose. Left/right, black/white, good/bad. Here comes the link between love and choice. Everyone aims for eternity love and happiness, thus we would do anything to get them. In order to get them, we need to give and take, forgive and forget and learn about other people. Life is not just about ourselves. Our loved ones should be the main priority. They should be our reasons to fly and succeed in doing the things we choose. It's the same if we choose to do bad such as not caring much about our own studies, not managing money well - especially for students like me! We sometimes need to think longer of which choice is the best for us - and what's the effect on our loved ones. To the family, brother, sister, friends. Anyone that we cared for.

As we go on with our lives, many choices will lie ahead. Many paths we have to choose. Whatever you do, do it best. For them. For yourself.

Atak's holiday to-do list.

I was bringing a pile of books and novels into my room when I caught Atak watching Justin Bieber's video over Youtube. She then said to me:

Atak  : Min, teringin lah pergi konsert Justin Bieber nanti.
Me    : Pergi lah, min belanja half.
Atak  : Hmm. Tengoklah.

Then she continued watching Bieber's video and started to sing along, LOUDLY. Yeah it got annoying then I said to her "Ko takda benda lebih berilmiah nak buat ke?".. And she confidently replied "Ni.. Tengah baca 'How to Moonwalk' " and showed me the webpage that she was reading. So I said, "Ish!"


Yes, my 20 years old sister was reading 'How to Moonwalk'.

Then she added, "Min, kat kitchen floor pun boleh".

Oh dear.

Worried. Please be back safe and sound, cous!

I can't help but to feel terribly worried of my baby cousin - Lily Syamim's safety, who's studying in Alexandria, Egypt. Due to the uprising that's currently taking place in the whole Egypt nation, all students and tourists are required to evacuate the country as soon as possible. I really hope that she will arrive home safe and sound. Dear sweetheart, know that I love you and I know that you are indeed strong to face all these.

*Ingat tak dulu awak selalu sneak-out dari rumah untuk pergi McD malam2? Use the same skill for this one babe. :P *

Okay lame joke.

I pray that everything will be just fine for you. I miss you. :'(

Allah is always there with you, with us. Be strong love.

Me with Mim.
