For the past few weeks I had been married to Haruki Murakami- a one week love affair. Actually I’m just happy that I’m back into my old self. Every after work I walk straight home then grab the book until black birds and owl knocks on me.
I recently finished reading the book The Wind up bird chronicle, a fiction novel that fuses realistic and fantastic tendencies which contains elements of physical violence. Murakami works are heavily influenced by western culture, humorous, surreal and at the same time distresses on themes of alienation and loneliness.
"The story starts off simply enough about Mr. Okada losing his cat, then his wife, and then finally his own mind. In a bizarre fashion all of the odd characters and situations that Okada finds himself in are all related in some way which is eventually summed together at the end. What was most fascinating is the elements of Buddhism, the search for nothingness to really get in touch with one's consciousness. Okada finds the strength and ability to achieve 'emptiness' at the bottom of a dark well. In the well, Murakami puts us in touch with the most bizarre adventures in Okada's consciousness and much of the story talks about war guilt"
I'm not a bookish but its just one of my unparalleled habit so enough with this! I'm excited to read one of his popular novel- The Norwegian Wood not the song but the fiction story of loss and sexuality:)
Also this week I had dinner with my old good college friends.It was a sort of reunion at Gerry's Grill Mall of Asia. After 4 years we finally see each other. We parted our ways after graduation meet different people from different walks of life, work from different countries and companies..tambay dito tambay dun…lol but our friendship never fade. We can still kick each other ass!
and this what we eat...puro pang pataba at highblood...joskow! we actually agree since Eugene has been missing this kind of food..bawal kasi sa country kung saan sya nag papa alipin...lol..He ordered 2 Crispy pata! kaya goodluck!
(Crispy pata, crab rice, sisig (sorry no pics na delete ko:) mais con yelo and sansrival cake)
I'm wearing( my 4 years old 501 levi's jeans, top from TRF-Zara, shoes from charles and keith blazer: thrifted, bag from landmark)
Thou I hate reunion cause it reminds me that I'm getting old but nevertheless it was an awesome night. This people are the best antiques to collect and someday we'll look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject. Tell we meet again good friends!
wishing everyone to have a great weekend!
Life is good!
