It's been a rather dull period at the movies. A suggestion to see the latest installment of Alien had been swiftly turned down by a friend, who cited bad reviews and ratings for not intending to catch it at all. I don't usually follow critics' choices. A highly-rated Get Out turned out to be an extremely uninteresting "horror" flick, and I literally fought to the death in defending my stand, citing that lone critic whose views I totally agreed with. I love horror films, and hated the movie for the fact that it pretended to be one.
Alien: Covenant, with an average rating of 7/10, doesn't really seem like a bad movie. Isn't 7 out of 10 considered above average? The ratings are all based on personal opinions anyways.
In any case, since the movie is hailed from one of my best-loved sci-fi series, I'll most definitely watching it. And if I've got more free time, perhaps a second viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.
With fewer distractions from the silver screen, I've more time to immerse in book reading. I enjoy all the drama in the fictitious world, but not interested at all, when it comes to real-life drama of any sorts.

The Good Life.
AshleyJo - 2 days ago
So much has transpired. So much has gone through my head. I've been pondering over the big Qs of late and it makes me wonder abt the definition of The Good Life. Clearly, it is one of a highly subjective nature.
J and I were discussing the ever intriguing "what-makes-us-happy" topic. To her, simple joys come in the form of being able to read tonnes of books and likewise for me, indulging in my weekly pursuits makes me a happy woman. But going beyond our ephemeral pleasures on a day-to-day basis, what truly gives us The Good Life which will sustain our existence on a more spiritual level and in a more self-aware manner?
Money and Success have never been determinants of what constitutes a Good Life for me. Yet to many, and amongst them I count them some of my friends and ex lovers, the precepts of the Good Life are dictated by say, one's own house (or a bigger house?), travelling, car (or a nicer car?), branded wallet/bag/shoes/whatever material possession one can "own". As it is, The Good Life means differently to diff individuals.
If we were to pit suffering against success, it's a no contest. At least by the measure of the human mind that's been so conditioned by societal expectations. The world at large credits success but nobody gives value to Suffering. And I can understand why, because I wouldn't want to suffer either and I would hate to see my loved ones going through suffering in life. But I've come to appreciate the value of suffering, not just from a spiritual perspective but truly understand that some forms of suffering are indeed worthwhile to bring abt other positives in life. Hence, value creation from suffering. I'm thankful to have gained a more in-depth understanding that suffering for a greater cause until the day I die is a life well-lived. As ironical as it sounds. And perhaps, this is what The Good Life truly means.

Traveling in space doesn't require much company, as it's a quiet place for one to rest, recharge or go on an adventure. Spacedog is totally cool with it, as long as I keep her entertained with cookies and a bit of belly rub.
Sometimes we land on a friendly planet, and catch up with the inhabitants. They often update us with what's going on in their lives, mainly about relationships and the complications that arise from them. We listen, even though we are more interested in topics that involve time-traveling and magical thinking.
While Spacedog gets busy licky her paws, which is a sign of boredom, I'll attempt to work out the logic behind the complicated parts of the relationship. Usually I won't find any, and so I'll start counting in my head 1 to 100, then 100 to 1, repeatedly, which is a sign of boredom.
Once Spacedog begins pacing around with all four of her paws wet with saliva, and me losing count in between 1 and 100, I'll inform the friendly inhabitants politely that I have to walk Spacedog, and bid them farewell.
Onboard our spacecraft, which roars its way into space again, we feel our spirits rise as we head towards our next adventure.

One nice poem
fflovelife - 4 days ago
Generating compassion does not mean actually freeing beings from their sufferings; it is wishing that they be free. Of course, if there are things we can do to help, we should do them. Sometimes our efforts will work, sometimes not. The most skilled doctor is unable to cure every patient, and the most courageous rescue worker can't save every life. No matter how strong we may wish someone to be free from a problem, we may not be able to bring this about. We can only try our best, and then accept whatever the result maybe.

These days, reading can become a more social activity, with all the different book clubs on social media that one can join. And not forgetting Bookstagram. It's through all these connections that I widen my scope of reading.
I caught up with a bookstagram user recently for a book exchange. After the quick meet up, we chatted on Whatsapp and then came the question "Do you have a boyfriend?"
I had not been asked this question in the longest time and was quite tickled by it. I thought I looked lesbian enough to most people. So I told her that I'm gay and she asked if I had a girlfriend. Then came the discussion on how tough it has been for me to find a compatible partner in an ever-shrinking pool of potential matches.
That reminded her of a local writing that she read once, and how she was moved to tears by it. She strongly recommended it to me.
Alfian Sa'at's The Invisible Manuscript is probably the most openly gay writing that I have come across in local literature. Although it's written from a gay man's perspective, I find resonance in many of Sa'at's poems.
The one that strikes me the most is "Penmanship (for N)":
"If I could gather all the premature full stops in your letters I would thread a bridge of ellipses back to where we left off, back to where we never started. My life's now a mess. You gave up your illusions on love so I could create my own."
Awesome words there.
I said yes on the 20th of May
stephie - 6 days ago
I said yes. It's a big step for me. One year ago I was asked this question but I didn't have the faith in myself. I couldn't make such promise. It's a life time commitment, so I had to think through it thoroughly. Could I do it then? Yes. But I was still hesitant of my level of faith. I knew this is the path I want to walk on, but in life everything can and does change.
For every commitment I made believing it would last a life time, turned out I was proven wrong, so how can I be sure this time is different? And it is. If any part is to change it will only be me. So I need to be sure I am committing myself a life time once I say the 2 words.
So now after these exposures and training, my faith is growing and I feel I am becoming a more and more happy person and i finally agreed, on the 20th of May 2017. I said yes. I do.
Today is a new day. I start count down and look forward till my big day. 5 months to go. My big day taking refuge to Buddha.

Never did I realised, how tall these walls are, built from fragments and shards, of broken memories and heartbreaks.
Looking for a soulmate, someone to share everything with.

Looking for a soulmate, someone to share everything with. Someone who shares my belief that we never stop growing individually professionally and personally and as a couple. I give all I have in a relationship and expect the same in return. Love to laugh and share new experiences with someone.. It's important that they are independent of mind and outlook but see the importance of being in a relationship..Someone who will take good care of me and show up much attention as well. E-mail: huntime374@gmail .com..They say that marriages are made in heaven. I want to find someone special to fly to heaven of passion and pleasure together. I am sure my destiny is here!

She who shall not be named.
Have you ever loved someone so much that after the wheel of times spins for years, and both of you have parted ways, and those brief yet beautiful memories are still etched to your heart and mind, like eternity?
I still think of her. I still think of her whenever I see a passing train that reminds me of the last day I saw her face and held her tight in my warm embrace for one last time. I still think of her when the nights seem lonely and the moon tends to shy away up above the sky, it feels as if she is still standing next to me, to feel her breath just an inch from my ears. I still think of her when I look at the sunshine on my window, to see her shadow walks by then disappears. I still think of her and I still do. While others might have thought that I have erased her name, buried the memories and forgotten the stories, she still lives in me. Sometimes it will be much easier to pretend and hide the truth, than to reveal everything that is inside your heart so no questions will be asked and no justifications have to be given.
And as for now, let her be the secret of my heart.
Of moving on and letting go.

A broken heart can be mended.
I have seen so many broken hearts walking down the road of recovery with their head bowed down in outpouring tears and inconsolable grief. When hopes are dashed and vows are broken, what is there left to say and what is there left to do but to walk away and wish the other party nothing but all happiness that this world could ever offer. And what is more calming than walking in the rain with tears flowing heavily on the cheeks, a good disguise for those who refuse to conceal the matter of the heart from the naked eyes of strangers walking on the same path or driving around town when the night is drizzling with loud music turned on so that no one could hear your cries and wiles, surrending your broken heart and soul to the sad raindrops falling on the car's rooftop. The truth is, a broken heart might take years to be fully healed, a long journey to mend on and a winding road to retain the sanity of one's spirit and mind but in the end, this too shall pass. The day when you could look at those distant memories and feel as if they were just withering meadow leaves swept away by the gush of the whistling wind, that is the day when your wounds are going to start to heal. The past has no longer pierced you nor has it torn you apart. When you finally let go the attachment of the past hurt, that is when your moving on adventures will be unveiled and your hopes for the future will be unfolded.
