She Only Wanted One Thing for Christmas: To Spend Time With Her Best Friend

This Christmas, can you give the best gift of all? The gift of TIME?

A A A

Once or perhaps a couple of times in our lives we came to the point of wishing that we could turn back time. Turn it back to those moments that we are not as busy as we are now, or that we still have time to spend for our loved ones. Growing up and going through life surely demands most of our time and attention that we may forget or neglect important people and events. However is it really that we just don’t have the time, or we fail to make time for them?

While we don’t hold it against our loved ones or our friends if they have to turn down our invitations for the nth time, or they forget the date again; sometimes there is that little part of us that wish things didn’t have to change. Because sometimes those Facebook greetings we send to compensate, do not amount to our actual presence. Such is the story in this 3-minute short film of nostalgia and friendship.

Grab some tissues, for this one may turn on the waterworks!

The featured short film is entitled Once Upon a Christmas and is produced by Singapore-based independent producer Butterworks. According to one of the producers and actress in the film Ms. Rachel Kelly, they came up with the movie because,

“This Christmas, we found out that lots of people in our [generation] are not really celebrating Christmas together like [in] the good old days. Hence we made a short film to remind people that it’s not about having time, it’s about making time.”

Unlike other films that are shot scene by scene, the whole 3 minutes of Once Upon a Christmas was shot in one go. This requires no room for errors since it is only one take. Not only is that impressive by itself but the message of this film is quite relevant in our times too.

As young adults we may be busy being go-getters to reach our dreams, or to earn money for our family. But in return, we may forget to give what is truly important to the people we love, OUR TIME. Time has no price tags, it is not expensive, but it can be the most difficult present to give. So this Holiday season, try to give the best gift of all, time 🙂

He Was Walking by a Half-Frozen Lake, When He Saw Something that Made Him Jump!

Will you have jumped too if you were in his situation?

It seems like people are finding quite a lot of things from frozen lakes, such as the "alien eggs" in Utah. This time, two friends from Norway found something in the half-frozen lake that made one of them jump immediately.

Lars Jørun Langøien and Yngvil Søholt were strolling by and taking pictures, when Lars spotted a little duck waddling through the thin sheet of ice. The duck fell in the frigid waters and became trapped. Without second thoughts, Lars jumped after the duck for rescue. Never minding the frozen waters, Lars swam and scooped up the duck. It was unresponsive and Lars had to pump its heart, massage it and even give it resuscitation.

The thing that made Lars jump in the waters...

Little Girl Mistakes a Bearded Shopper for Santa… And He Gamely Plays Along!

It’s just the sweetest thing!

During the Christmas season, you can definitely see lots of old bearded guys in Santa suits walking along the streets or commanding an audience of kids at the mall. More often than not, these jolly-looking guys are paid to don the suit and entertain children, so they happily play the role for the kids' sake.

But what about those who are just minding their own errands and suddenly get mistaken for good 'ol Santa? This bearded man named Roger got approached by an adorable little girl named Sophie, who honestly thought he was Saint Nick and to her parents' delight, he played along and indulged her.

"I've been told you've been a good girl this year," he told the cute and innocent girl.

Woman Born Without Legs Becomes Lingerie Model, Inspires Others

She was born without legs and abandoned by her parents, but now she is a lingerie model and a multi-sport athlete!

They say if you have a dream, go for it. Work hard for what you want and chase that thing you really want to achieve. But sometimes, our dreams are just too big and our selves too weak that things can really get impossible.

Being handicapped is one of the most acceptable reasons why people just let go of their dreams, but not 23-year-old Kanya Sesser - an underwear model/multi-sport athlete, who's enjoying the limelight despite being born without legs.

Kanya was left by her biological parents on the steps of a Buddhist Temple in Thailand. She was later adopted by the parents she now know from Portland, Oregon.
