I love how Japanese people pack their lunches. It is so creative, neat and balanced.
“If only life could be like a bento box, it would be easier to navigate it, compartmentalize and have everything in just one nifty package.”
Now, you may ask what is this woman rambling on about?
I just had a thought that the more you age, the more you suffer from all the extras life hands out.
Then, I had a momentary flashback of my “Japanese Fascination” phase. Everything I crave was related to Japanese during that time. There’s the ramen (of course), anime, J-Pop, J-Dorama, Doraemon, sentai and even hentai. I gobble it up like a starving man after a whole day of fasting during Lenten season.

Huh? What’s with the title, you say?
Anyone who had the privilege to read (and finish) E L James’ trilogy can probably relate to this.
Just a little backstory . . .
This book-a-holic went into a reading dry spell for months, unable to find that elusive tome that will bring out the inspiration needed by most writers to get the creative juices going. And just like most writers, I have a TBR list. I was able to get my own e-book copies of the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy for months before I actually read it and finished them. I blame my laziness in reading via computer. It hurts the eyes when you stare at the monitor for a long time. This is a fact that I share to most people I get to talk to.

Everyone wants to go to heaven or rather – paradise.
Is it bad that I don’t?
Just the concept of heaven and hell is open to so much discussion, controversy and conflict that will forever breech a line between fanaticism and rationalism. I don’t want to get entangled with that kind of sh*t. So, I will always remain very Switzerland in this and veer as far away as I can from being stoned to death [virtually].
I was born and raised as a Catholic. My mother would probably give me the eternal stink-eye when I she gets wind of my views on this life-long debacle of “what’s there in the afterlife”?
With all the indoctrination, catechism and long, boring homilies I’ve endured since I learned how to listen and be susceptible to brainwash, I now wonder: Will I ever get to paradise if I continue to doubt its existence?

Everybody has his or her own opinion on many things. Some are logical, some aren’t. We cannot really force people to think straight the way we want them to. To do so would be as good as signing ourselves for death by firing squad.
There are tons of questions that can sprout from a simple word such as O-P-I-N-I-O-N.
So why are some very adamant in forcing people to see their way? Do they need attention? Are they lonely and wanted someone to relate with? Are they so vain that they think they are always on the right?

We go to school to become smart. To be ready for the world ahead of us. So, where do smart-asses get their training?
“There’s a big difference between being smart and being a smart-ass. When used in extreme, the former can be boring and the latter can be annoying. “
