Work Life // Social Life

I seldom write review on movies, because I seldom watch tv/movie. I just watched a movie "The Intern". The director who wrote Parent trap, Something gotta give & Its complicated. I love all of her movies especially this one "The Intern", its kind of new & modern story. This writer's style is always beautiful houses with beautiful interior design, always with nice fashion & beautiful outfit. I know I must watch this movie from the 1st time I saw the trailer plus it plays by Robert & Anne, it was amazingly incredible. The reason I love & I watch this movie its because it relates so much to our daily life. Sometime a retired man can be very lost because they have nothing to commit, life is so old & boring when you are just waiting for activity and entertainment. This movie says an old man back in action because an online fashion company wants to hire an experience senior man,

I think balance our work life & social life are very important we could make it like 60% work & 40% social life. Lately I was too caught up with my work, even after working hours I was still cannot get the job out of my head, I was still figuring how to solve the unfinished business, it really made me going to crazy & forgot how to smile. Im not saying im very hard working, I lost the balance of life. I know we have to serious with our work but it doesn't mean we need to frown or keep the face cool. Just like people say many people say they are too busy with their job just because they want to escape from their family. Night time we should relax like a happy go lucky man, stop talking bout the silly job because job will never end. Work is just part of out life, there are many things we need to do like hobby, social, exercise or sharing & listening which are very very important as well.

I had just gone thru a short seminar that day, I find the seminar was very interesting. It shows us the different between business man and the manage people. Business people is always dare to risk, dare invest money on what they think it helps, manage people are always doing thing in a very secure way, always protecting themselves, follow system exactly, dare not risk. Of course a people who dare to risk may face a lot of failure n that's how they gain the courage to stand up once again, they will get hurt often but if you never been hurt how you be tough? A people can follow system, rules and regulation we call it a good employee. A person who has the very strong point of views & ideas we call them boss.

Some people asked me to join motivation class. I think that's good. For my point of view motivation we need to practice everyday, we have to put in charcoal to keep this motivation burning endlessly. We need to put our self into the competition that drives us work. By attending motivation class the spirit wont last long in you, it will only last 1 week or 1 month. All you have to do is get with the people who can give you good advice from time to time like the movie above the boss listens to the senior opinion. We can call them our mentor. We have to keep this good mentor at our side from time to time, or we need to get with this kind of people. You can go to church weekly services if you need to be guided and its all free. You can analyze how and why on what Pope Francis does, you will find out the meaning behind. Everyone has different calling, we cannot just looking at people, sometime we have to look at the man in the mirror. We have to find out what is our calling but not just using our man's thinking.

Ok. Lets get back to the movie. I like that part Jules asks Ben how long you lived with your wife. "Not long enough, 42 yeas" Ben answered. The ending was kind of touching, the Jules plans to give up her dream to save her relationship & family. I like Ben leave the decision to her without teaching her what to do, He says "From the ware house scene, I can see you are very talented in fashion line and that's your dream. From 2 people in a company expands to 220 people, thats how amazing you are". The words are too deep, Sometime encouragement and faith give people the biggest power to face the fear and difficulties.

Its time to stop here.

The Istanbul Adventure 2015

17th to 23rd Of August just had my 1 week trip to Turkey Istanbul, I didn't even know Turkey is 1 of the Europe country until I visited them. Normally I only see them from Football World Cup Turkey team. My geography and history are so damn empty, so I didn't know where they are located in the world map and what is the story behind this country. I didn't know what to expect. As this is a free and easy program so I had done some researches on the internet by searching Istanbul "images" to get some ideas, how they look like and which image that can amaze me.

The flight took us around 11 hours. I had a big surprise when I reached Turkey immigration, which was my passport left 4 months to expire, at the end I was being penalty for 353.10TL, straight away the exciting mood cut off 80%. Actually we just booked our hotel before we step into the plane. Now we are on our way to find out hows our room going to look like. Doing things at last minute is always the best because it will occur a lot of unexpected surprise, That is why Ted Movie says "#shit happens" Just stay calm & don't panic. Love doesn't lead the way but God will lead me a way hahahahah

Bumped into this at Taksim Square

Basically I was very happy, it was the 1st time I traveled by using the map, I even used Internet "Waze" to find out some places. Taking public transport is normal for me but doing research on taking which public transport was really the 1st time. I just realised I am very into those heritage thing & antic building. I had explored a lot of different era of art from there, you will find a lot of sparkling mosaic art which will give you a jaw drop. you will find out Tulip flower is originally from Turkey. Their country has more story because this country is older than our country. This country had been conquered by different people before, that's why you can see some of their designs are from Roman Era, some are from Ottoman, some are a bit Greece, Some very old churches had became museum or mosque. They say Istanbul is half Asia half Europe, so you can imagine the culture, art & life are so mixed. You have to be there to feel it.

Day3 was too dangerous to share here. We visited a palace that day, after visited the palace we have some food at their cafe , suddenly a loud noise "bommm "!!!! Everybody ran for life, My sister and I were like what to do now? Are we going to jump into the sea or wait for death? Really no idea what was the next step. Suddenly all the people became so lovely, taking care of each other. Before the incident some people were still quarreling. I swear, this is the only incident that will make us united. By the way I didn't have the chance to pay for the food and drink because nobody bothered to collect the money. Polices arrived not more than 3 minutes after the incident happened. It's kind of sad the building was blow by the terrorist ISIS. Everyone was living in fear at that moment.

We were drinking these when the
bomb exploded.

What I discovered from them: They are good in art like drawing and painting. They are very good in hand made or hand craft thing. On the other hand, some people are not working, some people are working 24 hours a day. Some people are doing some very boring job, most of their employees are man. I think they have not much choice in choosing their job. They have to work for their living. Suddenly I feel that we are so blessed because we have the chance to choose the job we love. I only have passion with what I like to do, What I had seen and learnt were we must have passion even on the job we doesn't like to do because we have the power to light up passion, that's what I believe. I saw many sales presentation & food presentation over there, what I can comment is "2 thumbs up" for their living skill. All I can say is good presentation. I need to learn that from them.

Please scroll to bottom to find out what we were drinking at last.

My breakfast's view
Kariye Muzesi
We were drinking these in an Irish bar,
Turkey beer.
This trip was really a lot of arguments and quarrels, we even got up to the wrong buses few times & even scolded by the bus driver, we even got down to the wrong station from the Ferri. But I really love the mistakes that we made, the obstacles & circumstances that we had gone thru, think back now I'm laughing, I really feel very very great for what we had overcame although on that moment we are scolding & cursing HAHAHHAHA. No choice, everyone overcomes their problem with their very personal way HAHAHAHAHA. We can quarrel till the sky upside down just because of the bottle being left in the restaurant. The ending of an obstacle is always happy that's y we must keep holding on till the end. Just like what they always say "look at the bigger picture", a perfect pic wont be true or genuine. A picture with some mistakes make the pic interesting, and please pay attention to this pic again, overall 80% is very wonderful & 20% is unpretty, this 20% unpretty obstacle shape u into a real man. That's why don't only zoom in and stop at the mistake or feel that's the end of the world, you have to zoom out to see the bigger pic because overall it's still a very beautiful trip, a trip to remember.
Tickets on the air and sea
