ROOTS

Unknown.jpeg

You’ve planted your roots under the humid sun,

pushing the earthen ground of filial obedience,

to find the water of appreciation and peace,

seeking the nutrients of innate contentment.

 

But you have been uprooted too often,

that your body is torn and bloodied, 

with the sins of your past,

with the karmas of your future.

 

You realise you only have the strength,

to gain stability in the concrete homes,

of those that never had the heart,

to give you loyalty in the first place.

 

Shiver at the ironic natures of this world!

 

The roots that you buried,

have been left to wither and die,

under the humid sun and the breezy winds,

the memories; the laugher.

 

Your living soul Is nothing but a distant past of a life once lived and mourned.

WHEN WILL I SETTLE…

eSTack-green-yellow-leaves-1500x1000.jpg

 

Like withered leaves,
frolicking to autumn’s eddying air,
I’ll never know,
when will I settle,
satisfy the needs of innate contentment,
accept that the established sentiment,
of yesteryear’s regrets and dispositions,
were brewed; resonance of seasons,
of torment and wholesome blues,
the despair of crouching in broken homes,
lined with vines of toughened roots,
of darkened esteems and confidence,
to approach life.

When will I settle,
heal the chasms of neurotic inanities,
reject the weakened foundations of these paper towns,
glorified by the insatiable greed of paper people,
making cutout love in flimsy suburbia,
that failed to quench the pleas of adam-kind,
to erase the mistake,
of star-crossed sins and entwined hues;
the longing for better times,
to approach life.

CRAZY RICH ASIANS: REVIEW

Feat-crazy-rich-asians3.gif

The announcement of a movie adaptation of the book titled “Crazy Rich Asian” by author Kevin Kwan sparked a worldwide media frenzy for it was going to be the first Hollywood film in a quarter of a century to have a cast that was mostly Asian, backdropped against an Asian oriented romantic comedy.The reception that this film would have would also impact Asian and Asian-American artists across all genres and will certainly have a grave impact on the future of Asian-oriented productions across Hollywood.It was inspiring to see the support that was given to this film, with full cinemas across Singapore for 5 days in a row.Furthermore, romantic comedies in the current film industry aren’t valued relative to large budget films and action films, thus proving that odds were against this film’s success.

Easily proving to be one of the best films of 2018, Jon.M.Chu weaves together characters that are funny, gorgeous and set in fancy locations thus proving that Hollywood does have room for more Asian oriented stories.The movie begins with the protagonist Rachel Chu( Constance Wu),a Chinese-American NYU economics professor who decides that an ideal spring break would be to travel with boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) to the Lion City in order to celebrate his best friend’s wedding.Rachel is unaware that Nick comes from the famous “Young” family, the wealthiest developers of Singapore, an “old money” family that had emigrated from China a few centuries earlier.This is just the beginning of an eye-popping spectacle entered round the wedding of the century and it contains all the elements of a traditional romantic comedy, a film of laughter, tears and love.

There is also the growth of the heroine Rachel, which is unlike traditional romantic comedies as we get to see millennial damsel that can love and be independent as well as stand her morals when thrust into a society of glamour, lust and greed.

I definitely recommend this film and hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did!!
