The title of this post is inspired by the Disney/Pixar movie “Up”. I’m actually watching it as I type out this entry. I’m at the point where they just got married and doing various things together, like lying down and watching cloud babies. Then they… Well for those who haven’t watched it yet, I won’t ruin it for you.
Wow, that was so sad. It immediately made me thought, “I love you, wife.”
Okay, maybe it’s a bad idea to watch it while I try to type out this post. ^_^ Haha, this part is actually pretty funny. I like how they turned a super sad part into a cute and funny one afterward.
ANYWAY, it has been paused!
Okay, I can’t. I’m still watching it. This movie makes me think of my life with Amber from the day we met on Interpals and onwards. I was just thinking that this movie makes me feel like a part of my childhood has come to life. Where would our journeys take us? What sort of motivations would be wife inspire me to do? Where would we go? What would we see together?
I wish I had met Amber earlier, but unfortunately, our ages don’t quite match up if we met earlier.

When I was originally typing this entry, a lot of things were happening at the time such as rushing my work and trying to push myself to finish it before the next meeting with the client. Then of course, there were other things too.
Regardless, the cartoon movie inspired me to type this post. It constantly made me think of Amber, my wife and all of the things I wanted to do but never had the guts to do them. There is a moral to the story “Up” and with that, I insist that I must not keep waiting until it is too late. Indeed, things can happen between now and whenever such as the things Carl and Ellie went through, but I need to remind myself and my wife Amber that we must not fall into the decline of just settling for what we need to do and rather, remind ourselves to go for the things we both want to see and experience as well. I do not want to be an elderly man without my wife beside me, to go another adventure without her, an adventure she and I had been dreaming of since before she came here to Canada to live with me.
I do not want to be an elderly man kissing the photo of my wife and saying, “We’re on our way Amber.” Of course, life is just like that. There is no guarantee either of us would live pass the other in any order. However, I must not let the passing of time eat away at our dreams.
So Amber, where would our “Paradise Falls” be?
I cannot wait until we are together again, so we can finally start on the next part of our adventure together. ♥
