To watch or not to watch?
The BF and I woke up super early last Saturday to get ourselves down to Vivocity for the special preview screening at 9.30am! So proud of ourselves that we made it.
The movie is a touching tale of gambling and family relationships based completely in Singapore. You'll see that the little boy actor (Ivan Lo) did a very convincing performance throughout the whole show. I was quite impressed with his acting. It made me forget he's an actor.
I'm a sucker for dogs and in this show you'll see a golden retriever named Dou Dou in the show (I heard Flapper is its real name) who is amazingly resilient and fiercely loyal. He is also quite a charmer with so many dog tricks up his sleeve. Check out this post of his. There is one of the scenes in the show where he needed to "pray" and in a appearance Flapper did at Bugis Street recently, he performed this live! What a clever doggy!
You'll have to watch the movie to see how it all plays out and be prepared for a tear or two! I also met the director Ng Say Yong there and it was a pleasure speaking to him and feeling all the passion and pride for his new film. Out in Singapore Cinemas on September 20, 2012.
Hola~ I am going to try to blog more about my life other than beauty and skincare... I think it's time to rediscover the simple joy I had - to write whatever I want and whenever I want.
So today, the topic's going to be what I have been so crazily obsessed with.
US TV DRAMAS
Yeh boy! Do you watch them too? I bet you do cos I think I must be the only joker that have lived in a cave where I never thought to watch them before!
I just finished 7 seasons of How I Met Your Mother. Oh boy, I love all the characters so much! They feel like my friends already! Only, they don't know I exist. Haha!
I wonder if people like any of them do exist!
Then I was lost for awhile before I was introduced to Big Bang Theory which was omg, another winner for me!
I am halfway through Season 5 now and I think, Season 4 was one of their best. If you notice a girl on the MRT laughing stupidly to herself while watching a show on her phone, you'll know that's me.
My favourite character has to be Sheldon Cooper. God! He's such an enigma! After 4 and half seasons, I have not decided if I want to live with someone like that! Hahaha! And the other characters in the show are all so well-developed and so funny!
I will miss Big Bang Theory so much when I finish Season 5! Hope they make Season 6!
Next up, what should I watch?
You know how fairy tales are all about the guy being the hero? Rescuing the damsel in distress and also showing off his macho-ness. Fairy tales teach the boys to be strong and brave, but what if the tables are turned and it’s the girl’s chance to be brave instead? Girls do want to be brave and adventurous too!
I remember that year my auntie passed away and my grandma was so brave to hold herself together and get through it even though I know how heart-broken she was that she had to see her own daughter go. My grandma, she's one helluva woman. In her younger days when fidelity in a marriage is unusual, she took care of her children all alone and tolerated the household that was ruled by her mother in law (aka, my great grand mother)! My brave brave heroine!
In line with the theme of being brave, the latest movie from Pixar is called BRAVE!
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson).
Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
Directed by Mark Andrews (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “John Carter of Mars”) and Brenda Chapman (“The Lion King,” “Prince of Egypt”), and produced by Katherine Sarafian (“Lifted,” “The Incredibles”), “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film opens in Singapore theaters on 8 August 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
