Fairy Tales.

From Google

I was kinda having conversation with one of my colleague of fairy tales and dreams. He was quite knowledgeable when it comes to well-known fairy tales. He brought up some points about fairy tales, his dream wedding and some sweet lines or quotes from fairy tales movie that he saw. It was funny. And cliché.

The stories was more or less the same. Just the plot in the middle changed. It's typical for a fairy tales to start with something like; Once upon a time, or In the kingdom of far far away, or any other cheesy starting lines. When it starts, your mind wonders. Your imagination start to believe that 'once upon a time' was somewhere there. Somewhere real. Exist!

The stories then will end with; They live happily ever after. And there goes the moral of the story. Cute!

Do parents read that kinda stories nowadays? It will be possible for full-time housewives to do it. But for working parents? I doubt. The reason why I said this because, I've never heard my parents read to me even once. They are hardworking people back then. Now? I'm 28years old. I can read it myself. I wonder and explore the stories myself. With books and motion pictures.

While wondering and exploring, I've developed my own. My own dreams. My own fairy tales. Just like Snow White, Cinderella and princesses that their stories have been told all over the world. My life will be wonderful if it were to come true. Don't you think so?

Kidding. Whatever I had right now are wonderful enough. Alhamdulillah. Why would I need more? Do you need more?

p/s: I don't wanna live in a dream. Take me back into reality please. He made me felaiiiiiiiing! I don't wanna fall.

As a parent I have to admit when buying children/bedtime storybooks,the illustrations (plus price range) came first!

Children's books are those that "We judge the book by its cover" :) though only fairytales.

P/S: "Wake up,wake up Cahaya" :D

Berangan memang percuma. Tapi Cahaya taknak terus berangan.

CAHAYA said...

Sis Maria,

Auwh! I love books with illustrations. Help with the imaginations.

p/s: I'm back into reality. But once in a while 'merantau'!

Ad Rifza said...

Alangkah indahnya hidup bila impian menjadi suatu kenyataan..Mimpi menjadi nyata..tapi kenyataan dan nyatanya dgn takdirNYA jua...Sama-sama kita berdoa k..Insyallah..

CAHAYA said...

tchersally,

Yep! Reality comes first. Felayiiing mode tu sometimes je. But sometimes I got carried away. Huhu.

p/s: feet hardly touch the ground. I need more gravity!

----------------------------------------------------

Amirul,

Salam. Hehe. Mimpi, mimpi jugak. Kena bangun bila perlu. Lagipun setiap kejayaan bermula dengan angan2.

CAHAYA said...

Ad Rifza,

Setiap kejayaan perlu ada angan2. Misi. Lepas itu, usaha. Lepas usaha, tawakal dan redha. Tak leh main lompat2 step tu. Kene ikut chronology yang betul.

InsyaAllah. Mimpi yang baik, tujuan yang baik. InsyaAllah Dia kenankan. :)

Dreams and fairy tales...
Everyone entitle at least one...

I have my own...
Which I know it will be hard to achieve...
Most probably...
NEVER...

Take care gal...
Keep dreaming...
With an open eyes...

Inah said...

do fairy tales exist?? well, perhaps..

masa i kat disneyland..i rasa fairy tales do exist :)

dream on dear..who knows what will happened in future :)

zara said...

Fairy tales exist, as long as you let it. But after a while, you got tired..and you will ask for more challenges because life is a mixture of hot and cold, sweet and sour, original and spicy. Imagination is so powerful than knowledge. But with knowledge, that imagination will become real. And then..that fairy tales...well, remains.

Dosz said...

hhehhehehe...

CAHAYA said...

kasih,

Yeah! I will keep dreaming and I'll make sure my eyes are open wide enough to see what's worth coming.

My advice, stop dreaming in your fairy tales dear. Come back to reality. You don't know what you gonna miss and already missed.

TC!

-----------------------------------------------

Inah,

Exist? I don't think so. But we can believe it exist if we want to. Living in a fairy tales doesn't mean you're belong to one or living in a dream. But to keep the dream alive by achieving it is the most important.

Disneyland? Sounds fun! Jealous sangat you.

Yeah! We'll never know. Just keep dreaming and make sure you dreaming with eyes wide open. :)

CAHAYA said...

Zara,

Ohh girl. I missed you. It always up to oneself whether to live in a dream or make that dream comes true. To live in a dream solely sure make you tired and boring.

Everyone needs challenges in their life. It's what make one perfect or close to perfection at least. Every challenge we've been thru' I'm sure we learnt something from it.

Every success is lead by a dream. And sometimes imagination. Even a tiny small imagination will become enormous if we really work it through. Good luck babe!

CAHAYA said...

As,

Books? What books dear? Thanks. Picture from Google. :) I can't capture my fairy tale in my SONY. Hehe.

------------------------------------------------

Dosz,

Haha. I can't fit either. But I still love fairy tales.

CAHAYA said...

i.am.belle,

Hi belle. Never believe? Good. Don't start. It is not easy to pull out once you're in.

Alhamdulillah to everything I had right now. But this doesn't mean I have to stop dreaming. :)

------------------------------------------------

Jard,

Falling for who? Err, I don't wanna fall hard because of how high he made me. Haha.

Yeah! I'm coming. My feet touches the ground well.

Don't start believe in it. And true enough that nothing wrong with dreaming. So, dream ON!

CAHAYA said...

en_me,

salam pokcik!

---------------------------------------------

CATZ,

Tu la. Memang betul. Typical. Cerita dongeng. Sah2 rekaan. Tapi nak buat satu yang boleh dikirakan logik di dunia nyata. :)

Terpulang pada diri sendiri CATZ. Nak jadikan mimpi itu satu kenyataan. Semuanya di tangan kita!

DrSam said...

I hope your prince charming will read you a lovely illustrious story and your sweet dream become a reality. Once upon a time....

Nem0 o0h Nem0 said...

berangan tu best kan tp kalo dpt jdkan realiti tu best..

HEMY said...

hehehe..I always want more in my life every single moment...

It's my gear to move ahead!!!

CAHAYA said...

Kak Izan,

Hehe. Teringin jadi princess tu memang ada. Rasanya semua orang entitle 1 kali dalam hidup kan? Waktu wedding kan kadang2 orang pakai gaun kembang. Hehe. :P

Kayu sakti tu rasanya tak perlu. Cukup akal utk berfikir baik dan buruk sesuatu. :) InsyaAllah menjadi.

CAHAYA said...

Dr Sam,

I'm sure he will read it. He kinda silent reader in this blog. I'll try to encourage him to blog too one day. :)

And it surely will start with; Once upon a time. And our story in it. :)

CAHAYA said...

Nemo,

Hehe. Memang best. Memang layan. :) Jadi reality tu BONUS.

-----------------------------------------------

HEMY,

Wanting more than what we had is good. A motivation! But there must be some implementation involve too. Not just a dream. :)

Kewl! Make sure that you reward yourself everytime you achieve your dream.
