 Watched it yesterday as my birthday treat from TGV. It feels good to get two free ticket, one popcorn and a drink. It was so difficult to slot time to watch this movie, but manage to do so.
Didn't regret of watching it thou. I luv the always smiling and resilient character she has . She was so blunt and alwz pick her self up and find her own way to solve her issue. She doesn't ask for help from outsider. Even from her dad, she lies. In Malay they say, mau jaga muka.  There are few teaching which I got to know is gambling is never a solution for finance. Stay away from it. At the beginning you win, but at the end you lose more till you get involve in unnecessary situation and action, as her she robbed a bank and caused a single parent to almost dead. There is cause and effect of every action. At the beginning itself, try to reduce the damage. She been warned not gamble again, but she carried on. Sometimes, they are signs around us but ignore most of the time, in real life too.  the character of being bold and direct is normal after going through a divorce od relationship breakdown, that is what a strong woman turn into . Even though, she is a actor but in her real life, that who she has become. The ultimate truth was told by her that no one cares. Stop been embarrass and worry what other might say.  Other than that, no matter how screw up you do in life tell to your family members because they are the only one will be able to help and will never let go your hand.

Overcoming A Divorce

Going through a divorce is so difficult if the other party doesn't co-operate. It turns out to be  a hell of time. Sometimes to be out from the relationshiop is so difficult. The person will hunt and manipulate you till you cripple. No way to escape and the society wont even help you. As even they don't want to involve in this messy situation. The end you are left a lone to resolve this issue with emotional, health and mental breakdown.  It is called depression. It goes even difficult if you have a newborn child with you.  My only advice is get a gud lawyer who will standby you when all chaos occur. Pray as much as you can because only Lord can help you. Trust no one and take care of your job, health and finance. This journey is going to be tough but fight now then later. Stand for your yourself , don't defeat. This narcissist ppl are the worst to deal with. The best solution is ignore each thing he said before because all is a liar and fake. he doesn't care about anyone. he is a selfish person. there is no way out rather than cut-off from all communication.

We girl has been thought to dream that there is prince charming who will wiped out all our misery and build a beautiful house and will have lovely family. But the reality kicks in the day we get marry.
 What seem so wonderful starts showing off the true colour and character. We are married and  we will do whatever to safe this marriage. sometime, makes me wonder why we are so na├»ve and stupid to have such believe of happy family. even though, we work so hard to provide emotionally physically contribution to is no appreciation. MIL is  another topic. She makes her son get married and will do wonders to break the marriage. On what basis you make your son to marry. If you want a grandchild, make your son to sleep with another woman and get ride of her and keep the childlah.  No need to get your son to get married then.
It makes me thinks why there is so much of chaos everywhere. There is so much issue going on . Why our own creates more problem to us. The definition of true love doesn't exist in current world. Being truthful and honesty is not require to stay alive in this world. Your own and surrounding will take advantage of you.   For this century, the only way to stay alive is being grateful of small little thing you have with you. Having a companion doesn't make you happy but in the other hand produce stress and limit your capacity. Self care, self respect and self honesty is the new way of living.
Lastly, prayers is the only protection available for us all time.
