Hurrying Slowly

Life is good. Everyday is a great chance to change things and make things better. i know that. slowly, i am getting there.
days might seem extra lonely now but i still believe that it will be better. healing might take time. forgeting, even more impossible at the moment. but i have hopes. just as i try everyday to seem happy and contented. inside, i still have questions. perhaps, in time i will be ready to accept.
i have never believed in letting go. now more than ever, i cling to whatever memories i can conjure, always reminding myself that though things changed, we still have the power to make things happen.
Life is just a test… there’s always the possibility to get a perfect score.

to borrow inspiration from one of my fave quotes:

" i wanted a perfect ending. Now, i learned the hard way that some poems don’t rhyme & some stories dont’ have a clear beggining, middle or end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the most of it without knowing what will happen next."

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"


The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.


Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.

Singapore

Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)



Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

March 8: International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8th each year. The day is about celebrating the vital role women play in enhancing economic security for their families, communities and countries as a whole while recognising that significant barriers to achieving women's economic security and equality continue to exist.

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
