Yesterday was the premier of Hannah Montana the Movie. I watched it; alone. Another crazy thing I did this week. *applause*

To tell you the truth, I'm no big fan of Hannah or Miley; and putting the movie in my 'must watch' list is definitely out of the question. I was attracted to watch the movie since I adore her song "The Climb" very much.It's very inspiring.

To my surprise, I almost shed my tears when I watched it. The movie touched my heart in a way I never would think of. Don't get me wrong; it wasn't a sad-titanic-kind of movie. Frankly speaking, even a 5 year old can figure out how the story ends; on the surface it may seems like another typical idol movie; but if you try to dive deeper you may be surprised what you'll discover. For me, the movie is all about self discovery; who you are and who you want to be.

*warning: spoiler*

In the movie, Miley is so wrapped up in her Hannah-Montana-Glam world that she turned down her grandma's birthday invitation without hesitation to perform in an award show; not to mention she just ruined her best friend's sweet 16 party. So, her father decided to take her back to their hometown in the countryside or we so called 'kampung halaman' in a two weeks term to 'clean up' her attitude. Of course at first she put up budak-bandar-baru-1st-time-masuk-kampung attitude, but gradually she realized the most important thing in her life than fame and fortune. Thus, she is torn between being Miley which is herself; or being the famous Hannah Montana which is her childhood dream.

Yes2 I know, there is a big-mammoth-size difference between movie and real life. But even so, I can pretty much relate it to my life right now. Life is all about choices. There will be many paths for us to choose, but to choose the right one was easy. Most people are very afraid that their choice will be a blunder that they will regret for the rest of their life. I was among those people some time ago. I prefer to follow the orthodox to play safe.

"Lepas SPM better masuk matrik, cepat sket masuk U".

So, I just did what I was told to do – fill in forms and so on. Sometimes I even wonder, what if back then I chose not to enter matrix but instead go for diploma. What will happen to me today? Will I be in an office working my a** off or will I continue my study for a degree scroll?

But, as good as it sounds I can never turn back time; at least not till someone really invent a time machine. So, at some point in my life I decided to go my own way; explore as many opportunity as possible. There are so many things to discover out there, live life as if you are about to die tomorrow. *credits goes to Rehan*

Starting today, I decided to live life to the fullest; seize every golden moments that I have and most important of all – take all the time in the world to enjoy it.

p/s: maybe I should start to list down the things I've been dying to do. Where's my pen eh?
