Whisper of the heart – a movie touching the soft part of my heart 

March 13, 2016

Every Miyazaki movie offers an adventure of emotions. “Whisper of the heart” is a classic one, which reminds us the first crush towards someone in the next-door class. We were young & naive.   

We believed in forever and thought we would never change. It was frustrating that we couldn’t see how future would turn out to be, but we were sure about our forever love. Nothing makes us apart.

It was scary to have dreams, far & high to reach, scared of falling hard & getting hurt. It was exciting to have dreams, discovering who we are & what we want to achieve.   

It’s a sign of getting old, when we look back & sigh about the good old days. We like who we are right now, but feel sorry to meet the past, that we didn’t remain the same, and we didn’t realize the dreams. 

It’s a similar feeling expressed in the song “Hello” from Adele. We become someone else rather than who we thought would become. That’s life.

Have you married your first love & lived happily ever after? Maybe yes, maybe no. Life is perfect with imperfections. I enjoy looking forward to the yet-to-come. We keep the past to ourselves and move on to the future.

It’s never too late to follow your heart and chase your dreams. The best moment to start is now. Be motivated, be hardworking, be brave. Just like when we were young & naive.

Hello 2016

January 1, 2016

It’s the first day of 2016!

I’ve been thinking of something new to start for this new year, something I should have started long time ago – my personal website – where I can record and share random things in life. So this is it.

Considering my work life is busy enough, I hope I can commit enough time and effort to keep the content up-to-date.

Happy New Year and wish everyone a successful 2016!
