No, I’m not talking about Bangau‘s adventure since coming back from KL and setting up stall here, but fair to him, he’ll be charting new routes in his life when he returns to KL this Thursday, after we went down to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station — my first ever visit to that place — where he bought his ride home.

So when will he be back? Only time will tell, so here’s to wishing Bangau a fantastic journey ahead and an exonerating endeavour in a new chapter of his book of life.

Curiousity, Fear, Joy, Sorrow, Respite And A New Beginning — my description of the roller coaster ride that Jake Sully subscribed to on Pandora, in the movie Avatar.

Avatar has already swept a few Critics Choice Awards, and with the Golden Globe looming close, there’s more to savour, if you’re a big fan of the movie of course.

Last night, despite the lack of sleep, numerous to-do lists, accumulating chores all piling up for the weekend, I caught the movie, yet again, with Dils, where it wasn’t at all surprising that I found myself battling ‘sea-monsters’ while trying very hard to stay with the movie.

Btw, thanks for the movie treat again Dils!

The crowd on the night was really good and mature, so there really wasn’t any problem in concentrating on the show, but my sleepy eyes just had to spoil it a little bit by hitting me hard during the final battle scene, and everybody knows that the final battle scene IS the part where you don’t want to miss at all.

Thankfully, I woke up in time to watch the ending sequence, one of my favourites, where Neytiri aided Jake in eliminating Quarritch with her arrows, before jumping into the mobile pod and saving Jake with the respiratory unit — there’s got to be an alluring, edgy, firm and sexy woman behind every successful man, right?

As the movie approached its ending sequences, a whisk of sorrow swept over me as I realised that the movie was coming to an end, and how I wished it could have continued further.

As obsessive as watching a movie 7 times at the theatres sounds, I’m sane enough to know that it’s just a make believe world on a silverscreen, and that all these euphoria will probably go away in time and that there are things and tasks which deserves my utmost attention (like paying handphone bills, for example and finishin up my websites proper~).

BUT while I still have the opportunity of visiting Pandora in 3D and before it stops running forever, I’ll grab my opportunity whenever I can, though it kind of saddens me a little bit that I cannot bring the joy of watching this movie with certain friends and family, cos they don’t see it the way that I do.

BUT not everyone has the same taste and beliefs, which is what makes anyone unique right?

Strangely, watching Avatar seems to heal pieces of me, bit by bit, and though I’m not entirely sure what’s eating me up right now, I’m absolutely delighted that the experience of wandering within the lush forests of Pandora and frolicking within the love story of Jake and Neytiri gives me plenty of joys.

Simple joys, which brings a sense of enlightenement and a fleeting moment of escapism from this chaotic, hectic world of mine.

So what happens when Avatar ends its run in the theatres?

Time for a new beginning eh? Or I could simply endure and await Avatar 2.

Anyway, if you felt a little bit of sorrow (no, not depression!) after watching Avatar, then maybe reading this thread from will make you a little bit warm and fuzzy inside.
