SATC

I’m so sad ‘cos I completed the entires series of Sex and the City and I have nothing left to watch anymore. “It’s a old show but the topics are timeless” – quote unquote Cass who kept urging me to watch.

Love the friendship between the four girlfriends, and what the show had taught me (not about sex but life and relationships).

I’m making a list of my favourite Sex and the City quotes.

People say everything happens for a reason. These people are usually women, and these women are usually sorting through a breakup. It seems that men can get out of a relationship without even a goodbye, but apparently women had to either get married or learn something. Why are we in such a rush to move from confused to Confucius? Do we search for lessons to lessen the pain?

As progressive as our society claims to be, there are still certain life targets we’re all supposed to hit. Marriage, babies, and a home to call your own. But what if, instead of breaking out in a smile, you break out in a rash? Is something wrong with the system? Or is it you? And do we really want these things? Or are we just programmed to think we do?

Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change, so do cities, people come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away.

One of the signs that a female gorilla is in love is that she can be seen picking nits off her male companion. And yet in humans, nit picking can ruin a perfectly good evening. Not to mention a relationship. Women are known to be more verbal than men, but, when does criticism that’s constructive become destructive? Are there times when the ladies should just shut the fuck up?

Since birth modern women have been told that we can do and be anything we want, be an astronaut, the head of an internet company, a stay-at-home mom. There aren’t any rules any more. Choices are endless. And apparently, they can all be delivered right to your door. But is it possible that we’ve gotten so spoiled by choices that we’ve become unable to make one? That part of us knows that once you choose something, one man, one great apartment, one amazing job, another option goes away? Are we a generation women who can’t choose just one from column ‘A’? Did we all have too much to handle, or was Samantha right? Can we have it all?

That night I started to think about belief. Maybe it’s not even advisable to be an optimist anymore. Maybe pessimism is something we have to apply daily, like moisturizer, otherwise how do you bounce back when reality batters your belief system, and love does not, as promised, conquer all? Is hope a drug we need to go off of, or is it keeping us alive? What’s the harm in believing?

In love relationships, there is a fine line between pleasure and pain. In fact, it’s a common belief that a relationship without pain is a relationship not worth having. To some, pain implies growth. But how do we know when the growing pains stop, and the pain pains take over? Are we masochists or optimists if we continue to walk that fine line? When it comes to relationships, how do we know when enough is enough?

When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?

What if Prince Charming had never showed up? Would Snow White have slept in that glass coffin forever? Or would she have eventually woke up, spit out the apple, gotten a job, a health-care package and a baby from her local neighborhood sperm bank? I couldn’t help but wonder… inside every confident, driven, single woman, is there a delicate, fragile princess just waiting to be saved?

Laugh at the Face of Danger

The face of poppycock; the face of beeeean; the face of Rowan Atkinson.

It’s Johnny English….. REBORN.

I grew up watching Mr. Bean’s shows, and I believe that a lot of you, like me, also got to know Rowan Atkinson through Mr. Bean. So naturally, I was instantly drawn to this show when I knew it was coming. Thanks to United International Pictures (UIP) and omy, I got a pair of tickets to the preview!

This time, Rowan Atkinson plays the role of a improbable secret agent who is obviously oblivious of fear or danger (read: stupid). Watch him as he goes on a mission to stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos.

It is a comedy spy-thriller jam-packed with Rowan Atkinson’s classic humour, action, high technology, wee bit of romance, and more humour. This guy is just so capable of making you laugh even at the most tensed moments.

If you’re looking for something lighthearted this week, don’t miss Johnny English Reborn!

Pink Chick Flick

I can, just because it rhymes.

Was having pretty low expectations of Bridesmaids but turns out it was one of the best comedies that I’ve seen this year. Kinda average plot with INSANE HUMOUR LEVEL. Never was there a moment during the movie where I felt bored, and never was there a chance for my best friend to doze off (because she can even fall asleep watching Transformers).

Perfect show for a movie date with your girlfriends, or even boyfriends. I swear I could hear the roaring laughters of the two guys beside me the whole time. And it’s not really just about humour, there are also meaningful elements of love, life, and friendship which I like.

Thanks to Shaw and omy for the tickets!

On the Papers!

My first appearance on mainstream media! It was in ‘我报’ last week, and though I wasn’t mentioned in the article, seeing my photo there is already a biggie for me :DD

But that’s not my point, my point is I just wanna get your attention, because I’ll be hosting a mini contest in my blog to give away a $200 Kit Kat® kit. Stay tuned!

Awesomeness is Back!

Got awesome invites to an awesome movie through omy!!

Sayyy what! The almighty clumsy kung-fu-full greedy Dragon Warrior has returned, with double the action, spastic humour, AND touchingness.

Brought Jan, my best friend, along with me; she’s not a fan of animated films and she has never watched Kung Fu Panda before, but she totally enjoyed it without falling asleep. (Because she sleeps in every 3 out of 5 movies that I watch with her LOL.) So it means that if you already liked part 1 to begin with, you’re in for a treat.

My favourite character in the show! I’ve always had a thing for tigers since young because of their ferocity yet elegance, so it’s hard not to fall in love the “Tigress” here with the kind of agility and wittiness she possesses. Moreover, her voice’s dubbed by Angelina Jolie.

I ain’t gonna give any spoilers la. I think you should catch it yourself for optimum pleasure. Erm, I mean enjoyment! You can visit their official kung fu site for the trailer and more insights though.

Imma Pirate Wannabe

There’s this thing that I like about pirates.

No, not the wannabe pirate like this. Not the evil terrorising kind of pirates in real life either.. but the candid rugged Jack Sparrow-ish kind of pirate. (I also like The Pirate Bay kinda pirate.)

Hahaha he behaves as if he’s drunk all the time. Johnny Depp is just.. brilliant.

Which leads us to the long awaited sequel of Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides.

Aye I’ve watched all the previous three Pirates of the Carribean movies, and I must catch this!

If you’re a fan too, good news!

Because now you can simply jump on-board the Queen Anne’s Revenge and complete the “All Aboard” contest and win Gala Premiere Tickets and movie merchandise.

Besides that, you can also watch / play / download / have fun with stuffs related to the movie.

My favourite one is – Pirate Yourself.

Found the perfect photo of myself dressing up in a “pirate themed dinner” during my company trip and I started to mess around a bit. You can add wigs / accessories / scars / whatever.

This is the final outcome and I love it! Wicked pirated Facebook app 😉

Catch Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides movie starting from 19th May 2011 and join the official Disney Studios Singapore Facebook & Twitter page!

Else..

I’ll put a bullet through your head.

I swear.

Wake Up. Get Job. Find Love.

Attended my first movie preview screening with omy for the first time. Was pretty excited when I learnt that the movie I’m catching was written by the same screenwriter of ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ and ’27 Dresses’.

The storyline revolves around Becky (Rachel McAdams) and her career since the day she got fired to eventually reviving a dying news show at her new job. The obstacles she met, her love life, and the way she dealt with this “3rd worst person in the world” as her TV anchor were hilarious, but it did get a lil’ dry in some point of time.

Partly why I enjoyed the movie is also because Becky is almost like the exaggerating version of me in terms of her jittery behavior, as quoted by my best friend.

The overall flow of the film was smooth and humour was sweet, but there isn’t much climax though. However, if you fancied ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, you’d most probably like ‘Morning Glory’.

I know I sound like a total bimbo but IDC! Can’t help being drawn to talented men wahahaa.

I did mentioned about making it to the finals of the Green Hornet Side-Kick Contest.

But nope, even with faces looking tough like that, we didn’t win D:

(If I win hor, you wouldn’t only be reading this entry two weeks after the competition.)

Anyhows, it was still quite an experience throwing face publicly on stage at Bugis Junction. Continue reading
