Cast in the Same Mold

Dear Nicole, First of all, let me clarify that I am happily married. That my wife is the best out there, really. Nothing compares to how much I value and care for her. She’s the love of my life. And I will depart from this world loving only her and no one else. Let’s just…

Daily Prompt: Moved to Tears

Forgive me if I go a little bit saccharine today. The prompt did ask me for my recent tear jerking experience and it was TFIOS. When I read this two years ago, it was just so beautiful, it contained a lot of meanings – from dissecting your legacy to the world, a love story bound…

Daily Prompt: Cast Change

No question – I’d like my friends, my wife and I to play the cast of my all-time favorite show! Here goes nothing –  Bazinga! I’ve always seen myself in Leonard – geeky, nerdy but, though scared out of my wits, not afraid to ask a hot girl out. And hot girl I did get! –…

Daily Prompt: Off the Shelf

Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why? The narrative, the poetry, the words seem like a dance –  Make this cancer slash love story a whole new level of brilliance Made me laugh, made me cry, made me root for the two!…

You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from — and why did they send it to you? Sweet smell of roses, thorns have been cut wrapped in an ornament, by my apartment window it sat no special occasion, I think, no event to celebrate it…

Daily Prompt: Matters of Taste

So recently, at my wife’s persistence, we got ourselves a copy of the Divergent Digibook, only after a couple of days it was released. Me and my wife are fans of YA-books-turned-to-films and Divergent is definitely on top of la wife’s list.  The 2-Disc DVD contained a lot of bonuses – BTS clips, music videos, featurettes on how the…

The Daily Prompt: A Bookish Choice

A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions.

Daily Prompt: Missing Sequels

Okay, I have a confession to make. I’m a guy who’s into chick flicks! No judging, okay? They relax me and make me feel calm. Not to mention that oftentimes they’re funny and they tickle the funny bone in me. Don’t get me wrong. I still want a dose of the Whedon_dom flicks twice, maybe…

I Too, Looked For Alaska

So I now have a new favorite author. Mr. John Green. One mention of his name already sends shiver to my spine. He’s so good a writer! Since Nicholas Sparks, I haven’t really had the chance to get to know more of the contemporary writers around. This changed when I downloaded a copy of The…
