You Get Another opportunity to live!, You Must Take it Fully

Pretty interesting title, isn’t it?!. This is exactly what have happened to me today. I saw death meters away from  me. Luckily I’ve survived. This morning while I was heading to work. Driving on the high way and before 65 kilometer of my destination I made a strong accident with a truck. Yah as big as it sounds. And I wasn’t fully aware of the whole situation until I saw a vehicle for taking death bodies in the police station. It was a moment where everything had been isolated and it was just me looking at that vehicle. And I was like oh God without your big mercy today I would have been there body with no soul. I was in a disbelieve!!, ” Am I really alive, or I am died but I don’t know,” this is how I thought.And from that moment every time I remember the accident I tremble. I just want to forget.

I believe what happened to me is like an alarm or sth that tells me to wake up and pay a good attention. Not so many people get another chance to live. And I was one of the luckiest today. God gave me another chance, another opportunity and I’m fully and from the bottom of my heart thankful for that. Thanks Allah for all your mercy and kindness that I can’t count.

I wish you all a happy and safe life….

Review: The Alchemist

The AlchemistThe Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a breathtaking novel that has a true and royal purpose. " The alchemist " is the name that I’ve been through for a while. However, I didn’t try to read it though the title was interesting to me. But I put it in my list just in case. Now that I read it, I realized how much I’ve missed. Simply, because this novel talks to our hearts and souls. Paulo is a real wise person. He put his wisdom in golden words that awaken our hearts and spirits. It just motivates and plants the sense of challenge and adventure inside the reader. The sincere and pure goal of the story is behind all of that effect and impact.

Santiago is a boy who was dreaming about traveling and exploring spaces and areas around him. This desire pulled him to become a shepherd so he can travel with his flock. However, he wouldn’t have thought to go from Spain all the way to the pyramids of Egypt!!. And during his travel, he has been through many difficulties that let him chooses whether to go on or step back. At last, you can conclude that nothing can stand in your way to achieve your dreams or " personal legend" but yourself ! I recommend everyone to read it as it has a lot of lessons and wisdom. And I’m gonna read it again xD

Review: Pride and Prejudice

Pride and PrejudicePride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marvelous novel. It turned as it had been advised, a wonderful work for Jan Austin to start with. From the first page and the first dialogue, I liked the way Jane composes the sentences and the sense of humor by Mr.Bennt. However, I was not totally into the book at first for which the events weren’t so much interesting. Later, as things got complex and the picture started to be clearer, I plunged into the book. Mr.Darcy fights his-self for his pride, while Mrs.Elizabeth fights her-self against her prejudice toward Mr.Darcy. They hadn’t had a good impression of each other the first time they had met. However, later, each one’s view has changed. The end of the novel is pleasant and cheerful!.

I shot this photograph about one year ago. Finally, I’m uploading it on my blog and gallery.  The reason I took this long to upload it is because I didn’t work on it in one setting. I just took my time and work on it every once in a while. I replaced the background. Because it was black. Beside there were some objects in the scene that I’d to take care of.  I tried in this attempt to show excitement, joy, enthusiasm, and energy in the musical theme I chose.

Hope you like it.


Review: Memoirs of a Geisha

Memoirs of a GeishaMemoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Clearly, I’m not in position to critique or give a review that will add some additional information to what has been already added. However, such an astonishing work deserves all the appreciation.

I still remember the past time when my brother was reading it and I wasn’t paying much attention to it. Now, I’m just saying ” God, what have I been missing all these period ?!!!!.” It’s wonderful, astonishing, outstanding, and fantastic work by Arthur Golden. Golden has introduced us to many information that weren’t known to many people about Geisha culture in Japan. It’s like a culture within another culture. What Golden had done is that he had collected information about Geisha and then upon these information he created this historical fiction novel. Geisha is a term that refers to an artist and not like what may others think that it refers to a prostitute!. Geisha are expected to master different skills such as dancing, playing on some musical instruments, entertaining men in tea-houses .. etc. The novel is about a normal poor girl, called Sayuri ( Chyio ), who was taken from her hometown,with her sister, to Kayoto to be adopted by family in Gion. She later goes to school to get education so she becomes a geisha. However, her life grows even harder due to the problems she gets into. Inspite of all those ups and downs, Sayuri manages to be a successful geisha who could change her destiny or what she believes it’s her destiny to what she hopes and wishes to get.

Moreover, the novel shows not only geisha world but the suffering and agony that Japan had been through during the war against America. This war, however, lays a radical effect on the whole nation including geishas. And that add more excitement to the events.

It’s really a novel that worth reading. Thanks Arthur Golden for your masterpiece.

This is my new attempt in conceptual photography. Misery, it’s a word we hear , know that it carries a negative meaning, and see some of it’s effects on random faces in this life. But do we understand how sever and and extreme is this word when it comes to inner affection?!!.  It’s an attempt of me to picture the situation where as if all catastrophes, calamities, and problems are plunging one’s soul into the depth of darkness of depression, into the depth meaning of misery where the real interpretation could be found.  It’s just how I see it this way, ” my little philosophic interpretation of misery “.  However, there is always a way out where we see the light …
