Twilight is Upon Us as We Fall Irrevocably in Love

Finally, after MONTHS, I watched Twilight for the very first time. Yes!

Obviously, I am experiencing belated exhiliration over the movie and of course the book. In fact I have the book but I have not the time nor the chance to read it yet. It's still in it's plastic packaging!! Anyways, I know of the book even before the movie came out. Last year, I got hooked on Youtube and one of the people I subscribed to was an avid Twilight fan in the US. About that time, the movie was just getting it's buzz in the movie scene. So when the movie did come out, I was totally excited about it. Especially when the main hero was the dude who played Cedrig Diggory on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. At the time, I hardly even knew his name was Robert Pattinson. *swoon* Unfortunately, time didn't permit me a chance to watch the movie. So I missed out on it on the big screen... with Robert Pattinson totally in your face with all his charms. :(

BUT, that's not the only reason the movie had it's appeal. It was just the whole "ambience" and "feel" of the movie that captured me. It wasn't a typical teenage love story and it also wasn't a typical vampire movie. It had both. A totally punked out teenage chick flick! My cuppa tea.

After the movie last night, my head was absolutely buzzing. I liked the movie and yes, after watching it, you can't help but feel the love in it. Robert Pattinson managed to bring Edward Cullen to life and by the end of the movie, viewers could almost believe that there was only Edward Cullen. He lived! By the end of the movie, I didn't necessarily swoon over the actor but just that figment of imagination that came to life who was SOOOOOO enamoured with Bella that you just wished you'd be able to feel just a smidgen of that feeling in your lifetime.

So what do I do about it? Simple, I Wikipedia-ed Twilight and found out that the story is going to turn out just nice throughout the course of the series. Hence, I am going to get all the four books of the Twilight series and immerse myself in their world. Yay!

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

Life After... Pt4

"I want to see the trees."
Those were his last words to me on 26th May 2017. The day when we discovered Mum's cancer, the day Dad did his darnedest during physio at his bed just to get on the wheelchair, the day we took him for a little walk around the ward, the day before the 1st of Ramadhan... The day he had a stroke.
We would never hear his voice again after that day until Allah called him home on 16th June 2017, 21st Ramadhan 1438H. 
There were a few things that he wanted, which I failed to fulfill. For breakfast the day he was first brought to the hospital in Ipoh, he had told me he wanted fresh milk from Salim's Restaurant - I'm sure with 3 teaspoons of sugar for that perfect taste. While he was in the ward, he wanted some Miso soup from Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, but logistically it was hard to get to the nearest Rakuzen and I only got him some Miso soup from Sushi Zanmai. He wanted some jelly when he was sitting on the wheelchair - I told him we would b…

Life After... Pt 2

Dad was admitted in the ICU on the morning of 30th April. He had a severe case of pneumonia (and no one knew how things escalated so quickly to acute pneumonia save for Allah). When we first arrived at the Accident & Emergency, the attending physician who is a Cardiologist specially assigned by a friend’s father as the Director of the hospital, explained that all they needed to do was to give Dad antibiotics and nebulizer. Dad was supposed to be in the ICU for three days for monitoring and treatment, and it was expected that he would be right as rain. Although the Doctor did say that there was a possibility that Dad may be intubated just to help him recover better. I didn’t know it then but it turned out that “intubated” meant Dad would be sedated. So when he was wheeled to his bay at the ICU and suddenly the Doctor said there was a complication, I felt an awful feeling at the pit of my stomach. Dad’s case was much more complex than a normal pneumonia case would be because he was …
