YES! I am officially a 28-years-old now. It has been 28 years since God SWT has breathed life upon my facade. It has been 28 years since I first came to this world.It has been 28 years of ephemeral world I am threading before the journey to The World Of AfterLife. Another 2 years of “3 series” and 3 years past the quarter life of an average man. What more could I have wished for in lives and loves?
A Miftahul Qulub. From a Miftahul Qulub. May everything is blessed. Amin.
God SWT is fair and just. People say I don’t look as old as my age. But little they realize that the youth is slowly taken away. And my hair is filled with white threads amongst the blacken ones. And my cheeks are becoming more rotund due to the luxury of life God SWT has granted upon me. But, I am grateful for all these. It’s the sign of ageing; a gentle reminder to us from God SWT that everything blessed to us are merely ephemeral; nothing goes immortal.
When I was young. USM days. 2006. (,”)
In New Zealand, 2012. Well, youthful is just temporary. God SWT just granted us Borrowed Heaven. But honestly, I love my new fleshes although a lot of people are teasing me about it. (,”)
In this juncture of 28 years old, I am so blessed and I thank ALLAH SWT for all these graces. I pray that these halos will never fade away. I have a career I love, and I have people I hold dear in my heart that love me as well. Alhamdulillah….
New twist of the old fairytale in “Snow White & The Hunstman”.
But like any other fragile beings, I am sometimes is easily led astray to deviate from The Way Of Light. My defences stoop low with my delicate fences. Nevertheless, I try my best to shield myself; though I have to confess that I am no saint nor goody-two-shoes. I have my dark sides and things people don’t imagine I did; but I guess it’s part and parcel of growing up. You know, being a person filled with experiences to enrich your mind and thoughts.
Charlize Theron brilliantly portraying evil Queen Ravenna.
Nevertheless, Alhamdulillah to ALLAH SWT. I am really thankful and grateful. And I HOPE that these graces WILL NEVER FADE AWAY. I pray…..
Kristen Stewart as Snow White. Physically, she’s mesmerizing. But I am not sure whether she is a rightful candidate to play this.
Anyway, for this 28th Birthday, a precious gift from Miftahul Qulub for Miftahul Qulub; a Mifahul Qulub itself. I’ve been asking long for a gift of Al-Quran. At least whenever I recite, the potion of “Pahala” (if there is) can be shared…Insya ALLAH. Thank you so much! (,”)
Chris Hemsworth, The Australia-born Hunstman.
And, as a sort of celebration (not really because it isn’t the nature of me celebrating but; yeah we do certain special things to commemorate the Day), went to watch “Snow White & The Huntsman”.Well, with me being Hollywood aficionado, you can’t shake that off! Hahhahaa!
Queen Ravenna’s castle. CGI-made on the empty island of Gateholm.
On whole, “Snow White & The Hunstman” breathed a new rendition in the old fairy tale Snow White. This time, the fragile side of the uncouth Evil Stepmother or Queen Ravenna is explored. She has been portrayed as a tragic princess who has been given an embodiment of a curse to protect her and her brother. For me, the theme and the plot is fresh and mesmerizing; but the narration can be a bit draggy. Nevertheless, the settings, the costumes and the CGIs are BREATHTAKING! I have to say it is a strong contender for Academy Awards winning for Costumes and Designs category!
I like the Dark Forest. It’s misty and eerie and very gothic. I don’t know. Perhaps Tim Burton’s influence.
In terms of actors playing the roles; Oscar winner South-African born Charlize Theron really sparkled in the movie as Queen Ravenna. Beautiful and elegance but blessed with dark heart, she really exudes the spirit of a cold-heart vixen! No one suits playing Ravenna than her, I say. As for the role Snow White by Kristen Stewart, I think physically she looked astonishing but perhaps the rendering of character is somewhat a bit pale. And Chris Hemsworth a.k.a Mr Thor as the Hunstman; well, his burly and brawny features are great but the chemistry between Stuart is somewhat unconvincing….
On whole, “Snow White & The Hunstman” is a beautiful graphic movie (as it was directed by commercial honcho Rupert Sanders); but fragile narration of story. Still, high class visionaries and views.
The scenery is VERY MESMERIZING! Oh My God! I felt like it was in the mountainous area in New Zealand on the way from Burke’s Place to Lake Tekapo. So beautiful! But I read in Wikipedia that the shooting location was at Pembrokeshire, United Kingdom and Gateholm Island where a computer-generated castle was created on it. Remarkably like a real one!! On whole, I give this film 3 stars outta 5!
Simplicity in my life (,”). But beautiful life.
On whole, a simple yet beautiful way to commemorate my 28th Birthday…till the clock struck midnight of 1st June 2012. Nothing lavish; just a simple gift; a movie; and a “minum-minum” at Mamak’s Teh tarik – yet, deeply etched. Alhamdulillah. (,”)
