BLEAK SKIES 1

A GRIM PICTURE OF GLOOM AND DARK DESPAIR.

Shattered stars across the sky
like the pieces of a broken soul
remind me of days when I could fly
before I fell into the bottomless hole

I look up and cry tears of sorrow
my heart slowly freezing to ice
I wonder if I’ll wake up tomorrow
to a warmth that will feel oh so nice

Reality hits harder than ever before
God has forsaken me
I’m not to feel happy anymore
but my mind will not let it be

A dark time has set in
and l sit upon my throne
time to let the pain begin
no love to call my own

Lonely heart ever needing
I start to lower my head
the skies are bleeding
and I am dead.

MY DOG, FOREVER MY BOSOM BUDDY,

ME and YOU and a Dog called NICO. Shall I say More?

NICO WORDPRESS 5

His name is NICO.

He’s my 1 Year-old pooch.

He has a cute pinkish nose.

“I am as sexy as BRAD ARMPIT,” he woofs.

I am sitting all ALONE on this LONG and LONELY road.

NICO 1

NICO can squint his eyes to look ever-so-soulful.

NICO WORDPRESS 2

 NICO demonstrates his “pleading” look whenever he is caught doing something naughty.

NICO WORDPRESS 3

PEEKABOO, GUYS!

NICO WORDPRESS 4

I LOVE THE SUNSHINE !

NIKO STANDING

BEST WISHES for any forthcoming event, DEAR FRIENDS.

 HERE we are, Master and Pooch … ENJOYING THE CLOSENESS OF A DOGGONE JOLLY LIFE

 I love thinking, immersing myself in my chain of thoughts, therefore I am.

Rant, exploit, obsession, you name it.

I have been through them all, and still return in one piece.

Now, here’s a penny for your thoughts.

Try sitting in the middle of a long, lonely road and look far ahead.

The horizon seems limitless, unfathomable, so out-of-reach.

It’s like you are frantically stretching out your hands, trying to attain something, yet it fraudulently slips away.

It is only humane to put on that brave front,

And smile your warmest smile,

But here’s looking at  you, chum.

You can be lonesome, yes, life can be pretty lonesome for each and everyone of us.

There can be days when we have nobody to share our innermost thoughts and dreams with, not even with our closest pals.

Everyone’s  too selfishly wrapped up in his own cocoon of problems.

We are busy to “live in the moment” and appreciate the finer things in life that really matter.

Till, one day, the angel from above delivers an unexpected wake-up call.

Then, maybe – it might be too late?

TALK to your DOG.  He’s by your side.

Your DOG will never fail you.

He will listen, obey and agree with a woof and a wag.

Check this out.

Mine looks at me this morning, with wide quizzical eyes.

My pooch seems to implore, “I am DOG, master. You are MAN.”

So there’s this differentiation?

He is my friend, my partner, my defender, my DOG.

Is there a stark difference between MAN and DOG?

Both are living.

Both are breathing.

Except that MAN is the dominant master.

MAN calls the shots, shouts the command.

Aldo Kraas sums up the lot of a MAN when he laments in his poem:

“We are just a person with feelings,
And not an animal

Because we don’t think like an animal

And we don’t act the same way that an animal does.

We go out of our way to hurt others

Until they bleed …..

By telling them that we are always right

And they are always wrong.”

 

Humans are faced with all kinds of wars.

Political wars.  Religious wars.  Household wars.

We fight because we hate .

We rage because we love.

We bring stress to our minds, we bring hatred and misunderstanding to ourselves and to others, when a smile and a kind word would have worked wonders.

For the human, this is what we called LIFE.

What about the lot of an animal, the DOG?

Aaron Eckhart has his piece about Man’s best friend:

“I have a dog and sometimes I’ll be the littlest kid with my dog and marvel at his ears and his nose and how he looks at me. If he died, I’d bawl like a baby.”

Anyone who owns a canine pet couldn’t have agreed more.

One of the most loving and unconditional relationships you will ever have is with your dog.

Their sense of loyalty and devotion can be compared to no other.

In return for the companionship they provide, it is our responsibility to show them love and take care of them.

Like I say, I think, therefore I am.

Rant. Exploit. Obsession. Whatever.

It’s a doggone life.

And a jolly good one as that.

After losing a memory from an accident, “Tan” (Mario Maurer) tried to find his identity because he could not remember anything except his name.

He doubted himself who he was and where his family is. Eventually, he found something that led him back to his home sweet home.

There, he met “Tubtim” (Wannarot Sonthichai) his twin sister who is living with “Chiwin” (Peter Noppachai) a widower and his two children, and “Waw” (Nabhada Sukhakrit) a house keeper who raised him up.

The more he knows them, the more he learns to fear of their secrets.

No matter how hard he tries to go out of the house, he is getting closer to it.

SYNOPSIS

The story of a Japanese diplomat, sometimes called the Schindler of Japan, and his life lading up to and after his decision to issue over 2,000 visas to Jewish refugees in Kaunas, Lithuania resulting in saving the lives of over 6,000 people.

This is the story of a man who believed in doing all he could do for the benefit of his beloved Japan, including trying to keep her from becoming embroiled in a worldwide conflict he saw as inevitable. Along the way, he came face to face with the plight of the European Jews as they tried to escape the onslaught of the Nazi’s and the rapidly advancing German army.

Caught between the unbending policies of his country now bound by treaty with Nazi Germany and his awakening moral responsibilities, we follow his life from his early days in Manchuria to his eventual posting in Lithuania and his appointment with destiny which would forever brand him a hero.

Sarah, raised in New York, visits Malaysia for the first time.

She learns why her grandfather, Gen and mother, Sophia have not seen each other since she was born.

And why they still cared so much about their cultural traditions.

Elders see the younger generations as eyesores because of their overly ‘westernised’ (wild/ care free) behaviour and bad discipline.

Whilst the youngsters on the other hand, have no time for their elders, who to them seem to belong in a museum.

Sadly, this is a growing global phenomenon.

It is the director’s intent to tell this tale in a witty, comical manner and in doing so, hoping that this little slice of life will reach out to touch the audiences’ hearts.

SYNOPSIS

Pong – Thiti) is a high school geek who belongs to a group of high school outcasts known as the ‘Invisibles’.

He enjoys letting his imagination run wild with his drawings.

Pong’s cartoon illustration is the reason he gets to know a schoolmate named May.

A nickname, so common for Thai girls that whenever anyone talks about a girl named May, whoever is listening will ask, “May who?”

May-Who (Punpun – Suttata) is also one of the ‘Invisibles’.

May-Who and Pong have the same dilemma.

May-Who likes Fame (Tor – Thanapob), a good-looking senior who is both student council president and the school’s star athlete.

May-Who may seem like an ordinary teenager, and she is, except for her extraordinary ability to discharge electricity like a Tesla coil.

This of course makes her unable to ever get close to Fame without electrocuting him.

Pong accidentally learns about May-Who’s secret and promises to keep it a secret in exchange for helping each other win over their crushes.

Ironically, these crushes that May-Who and Pong harbor may cause unexpected sparks to fly between themselves as they overcome obstacle after obstacle together.

SYNOPSIS

Having recently weathered the loss of his 12 year-old daughter Evie, psychologist Peter Bower and his wife Carol relocate back to Melbourne – where they first met – to start afresh.

Old friend and mentor, Dr Duncan Steward organizes patient referrals from a psychiatric clinic for Peter to help restore some semblance of normality to his life, however things are far from normal.

Troubled by the peculiarities of his patients, Peter delves into their history and discovers to his astonishment that every one of them died within hours of each other on July 12th 1987.

Realizing he is being haunted by his own past, Peter returns to his hometown to finally face a secret he has kept for 23 years.

We discover that as a teenage boy he was responsible for the derailment of a train, causing the death of 47 passengers.

It soon becomes apparent that Peter’s ghostly patients are holding the soul of his daughter hostage.

Peter then confronts his strained relationship with his father William and his childhood friend Barry (who was with him on the night of the accident), and decides to confess his secret to local police officer Barbara Henning – whose mother was killed in the derailment – at the local police station.

 Henning probes deeper into the mystery, while the ghosts impel Peter to look deeper into his fractured memory of that fateful night.

Peter returns to the scene of the accident where the truth about the tragedy is revealed through a series of flashbacks.

After a tension filled climax, the ghosts are finally laid to rest, as is the soul of Peter’s daughter.

SOME YEARS BACK ….

Marriage With A Fool, a romantic comedy starring Canto-pop star Alex Fong Lik-sun and former Cookies member Stephy Tang Lai-yan, was a story about marriage.

Fong played Wah, a young man who married his first love Bo (Tang).

The young couple led a happy life until Wah bumped into Josephine (Pace Wu), a beautiful woman who was his ex-neighbor as well as a private tutor.

The two began to meet secretly until the sensitive Bo found  out.

When jealousy reared its ugly  head, family issues spun out of control, leaving the young couple on the verge of contemplating divorce.

The film was written and directed by Patrick Kong.

The roles of Fong and Tang were targeted to attract screaming fans, whilst the serious subject of marriage was likely something for the matured audience.

BEST 5

 Nine years have since passed – and Keung (Fong) and Bo (Tang) are now in their early 30s.

Jaded and still barren after a decade of marriage, the frustrated husband-and-wife couple each crosses the line of the seven year itch and faces different encounters.

The docile yet still attractive Keung meets an old flame (Jacky Cai Jie)  as well as another new crush (Joy Sheng Langxi) in his capacity as a hardworking real estate agent.

Here is how love crumbles and marital blow-ups begin.

RATING: 4 out of 5.

DISTRIBUTION: GSC MOVIES.
