Director Statement

Youthful days always carry a magical element as we recall them. With the nature of regret, passion and embarrassment, the memory from the past always make me feel contradictorily - dreamy yet realistic. The distance between the past and present then creates an alternative self that becomes the only proof of my own existence. Eternity is a relative concept since nothing ever stays the same. The moment we met and the times we shared were never too short to leave a glaring mark in this long dark night we called life.
