Captain Fantastic [Review]

One of few beautiful movies I’ve ever watched. I like the way they live life as freedom sould. Where they live to be themselves, to appreciate nature over bricks, having a life without internet, scrumptious meals of fresh slaughtered deer and own farm egg and vegetables! The best thing is the the scene of a family with knowledgeable thoughts and speech. 

[Allow md to mgnyion these again]. I am really into the lifestyle they are practising at the end of the movie. Living with fresh eggs and vegetables from the backyard, no internet, more interaction with family members, books and nature. Oh yes, they are living a balance life too where they don’t study books all day but exploring the wilderness as well.

Earlier this morning, I had a conversation with my friend about how great her lecturer (the older generation, very old which during his golden years, internet might not be introduced just yet) is with a wider range of knowledge and expertise wandering in her brain. Look at us, the generation of smartphones and wired pixels. We have the access to worldwide knowledge easier than her lecturer but we’re dumber (I believe), we’re still the generations that are relying on gadgets and google for knowledge. Although the knowlege is easier to search but our brains are always empty and dry. Our thoughts are made up from small, unnecessary information and I would assume that we are drugged with too much simplicity and of course on top of it, Internet kills us. If you aren’t one of the generations I’ve mentioned, well done. But for myself I would say that, I’ve cracked enough. I don’t want to be a victim of internet meth anymore. 

Appreciation Post. [friends]

Sometimes we take for granted on expressing our love and gratitude for the loving and caring people around us. Today, I decided to write an appreciation entry for all the good friends in my bittersweet life. Your presence light up my world. You brighten my days with your own lovely, crazy ways. Even for thousand days to come, I can’t ever express my A-Z gratitude and I can’t ever pay all the beautiful things you’ve painted in my heart, my dear friends.

Dear friends, I would like you to know that, I love you from the bottom of my heart. I might not show it often but my love for you is blooming beautifully in my small garden of heart.

May Allah gives you the best in this world and hereafter. Only He can repay the great things you have done to everyone and everything around you. Thank you for putting up with me and brighten my world! 🙂
