And another year ends

Did some mindless shopping. Do not even want to get into what happened this year. 2013 was about enduring the consequences or the fall out of 2012. i endured, and life continues. i am trying to tell the stories, but the words are difficult at this moment. i do not know if i can ever be candid as before about my life anymore. It is maturity, age, and also motherhood.  However, like humming a long forgotten song, i had this sudden urge to blog and did not have the time to care, or to think about doing it in another place. This is where i belong, warts, punctuation errors and all.

We have the New Year's party coming up at a friend's place. We decided to dress up and jazz it up with a lot of activities and games. Hubby has been driving me around for all the shopping. Took one selfie after another and shared with friends straight from the fitting room. Well, i realize you can live your life shallow like this, dressing up, dressing down and then planning what to wear for the next party or get-together. Some people do this not to go crazy, and find depth in the shallowness. Not getting me?!

Tomorrow will be another day, but for now, the night is young...

We are young
So let's set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
Than the sun ~ Fun, Some Nights

The Mistress

The mistress said, "Although, our relationship did not start in the right way, I loved you."  This is a dialogue from a Korean serial that I just finished watching, called The Inheritors, or The Heirs. The statement was profound enough to make me feel like saving it and sharing it somewhere. She is not the main protagonist, and her character seemed shallow but towards the end of the serial, I started liking her a lot.

Sometimes we end up liking the wrong person, and making the wrong choices in life, for 'love' as you call it, but like her, if it is another woman's husband, house, or marriage for that matter that you are trying to call your own, the guilt of having done that wrong often outweighs the happiness that you think you have received. This was her, blaming herself when things did not go right. But one thing was true, she did love the man and she said it when she was moving out of his house.  Sometimes, i feel 'love' is also about not acting on it.

Coming back to the serial, it is a hugely popular one in the Asian region starring Lee Min Ho, one of my favorite young actors (damn, they are all younger than me. But recently, I have a thing for younger men, no? What else can one do, actors that I grew liking are reaching adult diaper days, and i am reminded of my Auntijiness)

It is about rich kids who are groomed to be heirs and heiresses of their business empires, what lengths the parents go to uphold the family name, and what happens when this guy, (Lee Min Ho) fall for a commoner, while he has to bear the weight of his crown. It is a 20 episode drama. Enjoyed it.
