Yesterday was full of activities. I was in the office for several hours having a more rather productive time catching up with my writing. In the late afternoon I was invited for BBQ at friend’s house. Was there to meet many other friends and family friends. We had a good time to share the happenings among us.

The weather was extraordinary. Hot summer which everyone was waiting for. The children enjoyed playing and the adults enjoyed sharing stories while filling up stomach with chicken & lamb BBQ and typical Msian cuisine..satay & all kind of delicacies.

I enjoyed the moment and managed to get away from hectic brain thinking about my writing & life matters.

Came back home to get some rest. Laid down on sofa in the living room.Switched on TV and found the movie “UNFAITHFUL” played by Richard Gere and Diane Lane. I love Richard Gere for his sweet smile and voice. It was just enough to stare at his face making my heart drop to ground. Just being a normal human being I am. Diane Lane having such a sweet face, in the movie carried the role of a loving wife and mother to a 10 year old son.

The movie was about a woman who bumped into a book dealer in Manhattan and began a LOVE affair. As soon as suspected, her husband hired a private detective to find out the truth. This story is so trivial case of a couple with children after being married for sometime, some part of life is being neglected or not being paid much attention to keep the LOVE, TRUST, FAITH going. What catch my attention to this movie is a word from mother to her son..."no matter what happen between me and your dad, you must know that both of us love you so much..and that never change". The best part of the story was that it ended with the family back together after going through a tough ordeal.

Just cross my mind about matters related to long term relationship as a marriage couple? How faithful can the couple be? Or no matter whatever happens through out life, if they are meant to be together, they would stand the test that comes a long the way.

I believe, there is no specific answer to this… it really depends on circumstances, wishes, fate et cetera how it will end up to be…

Just my wee thot to spice up the day!

When You Say Nothing At All
by Ronan Keating

It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes sayin’ you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

UNFAITHFUL.....physically and / or emotionally, happens just happens!
The victors are those who ride teh storm and survive. Also victors are those who have the courage to take tough and difficult decision rather than pretending to be happy when being separeted makes each even happier.

I envy ...the victors!!

Izhal said...

Hi Anggerek Merah,

I saw that movie when I was in London. Enjoyed the movie.

Hmm...emotions!! I find matters of the heart is the most complex of things to handle. There seem to be no formula that can govern relationships. When it happens it happens. I'd say take things as they come.

Just as in Unfaithful, she did not reckon that would happen to her. It just happened.

anggerik merah said...

kak lady,
Verynice movie indeed. Setuju dengan kak lady....AM pun rasa gitu.

Thanks for drop-in here. Could not agree more to what you say on this matter. "Take things as they come"..I like that. And should be able to know when to let go or to proceed is also important.

That movie just trigger my thot on this matter. Nothing more than that.

oh diane lane in the movie is just so delicious.

I tak tengok cerita tu, tapi tengok si richard in "shall we dance", ada unfaithful element, sort of emotional unfaithfulness.

that lyric of when you say nothing at all feels like a seduction.

anggerik merah said...

err...delicious? hehehe

ooo..masa muda2 dulu lah..heheh

ahhh..shall we dance..yes agree with you.
Abt lyrics tu, seduction?? I did not see it that way until you point it out. I see it in a way that some people can't express in word. I am in love again with this type of people...thinking of how special they are in their own way..*wink*

Read yr replied in yr entry..tergelak on yr what yr friend said abt yr book. I tak habih baca lagi. Belum sampai part tu lagi..hehehe.

simah said...

glad u r taking a break once in a while..

love that song as well...

unfaithfulness.. tu kena tanya the guys what make them want to be unfaithful kan?

tapi kalau the lady tak jaga the hubby baik baik..tak boleh jugak salahkan si lelaki..but unfaithfulness sucks..

Semoga Allah jauhkan la bab bab unfaithfulness ni kan..serammm

ays_as said...

AM.. i will email u yaa when i will visit scotland :)

UglyButAdorable said...

unfaithful..betrayal of any form is hurtful, be it friends, your otherhalf, siblings etc. but is all part of life. i guess all of us have to go thru it at some point of life. it's how we handle it and weez it thru that makes us a victorius person.

and yes i like that song too..

anggerik merah said...

back from holiday?
yes, agree on waht you say.

let me know kay!

agree sambil anguk2. Lovely song right?
