Movie under a Banyan Tree

My friends and I attended the National Museum Open Air Cinema yesterday night. It was an interesting experience watching An American In Paris under the stars. ( actually there was no stars , but a lot of rain clouds hovering around ) Quite Romantic.....haha ...... Am loving it.

Looking forward to Little Shop Of Horrors and Beetlejuice in September.

Chris mentioned in his blog about one other event at Fort Canning on 12 September 2009 [ Blockbuster Movie Night @ Fort Canning ]. They are showing the Iron Man and Transformer : Revenge of the fallen. 看来要招兵买马一起去了。


He was loading the first projector with film and we were sitting right below it. Think they loaded 4-5 roll of films for a 2 hrs show.


The early crowd.
Many of us were picnicking away. We bought grill chicken and salads . Should have brought some wine to complete the picnic. ha ha ......I dont mind some kacang putih too. =P


Movie starting........ .. ....


The famous 17 minute-long dance sequence start about here......and about 5 mins later We became quite restless.......


......started to take upside down pictures....


....My friend and I were lying flat down, admiring the passing clouds and debating the colour of them......... haha ...........It was fun to just relax and stared at a cloudy night sky.

See..... I even managed to capture a lone star.........


... and this is the Banyan Tree the screen was under.

红豆



这是最近常听的歌
喜欢方大同的诠释
觉得他声音里有一种特质
让我可以静下心来
宁听歌词

*
有时候有时候
我会相信一切有尽头
相聚离开都有时候
没有什么会永垂不朽

可是我有时候

宁愿选择留恋不放手
等到风景都看透
也许你会陪我看细水长流
*

剥龙眼

各位看官,
眼睛可不要眨哦
这可是
流失已久的绝活
单手剥龙眼!

Homemade Truffles


Was trying out this Chocolate Truffles recipe from 8 Days. Gosh, it was a mess and looking really ugly. But I have fun. =P It was made out of 80% dark chocolate, so it was really bitter. I bet it will goes well with black coffee. Will pop one tomorrow morning with my black coffee.

Do you know that eating chocolate will make you happy? It is supposed to release the same chemicals that are released when you are in love. The darker, the better. hahaha I must be the happiest person right now.

Afternoon!



I have heard so much great reviews of [ UP ] that I am "dying" to watch it. Too bad, I still need to wait for my movie buddy to free up the time. ( which is next week ). Someone I know cried through the film and almost everyone I spoke to, cried at some point. hm......Very very curious........ I must rememder to bring tissue paper and not to put on too much make up. 不然变成大花脸,吓到人就不好啦。 =D

Wishy Washy

Thanks to a few individuals , today I finally fully understood the meaning of "Wishy Washy attitude" . J always complained about them. I cant be bothered with them anymore. ....Stay cool........man. But yet, its still get to u sometimes. What so hard to make a decision ?

Finishing venting frustration . Back to work. What's a way to ruin a beautiful day.

遗憾



这部片子
我自己一个人
看了两次

从作者的角度
读了一次

今天
从 B 的角度
在脑里又从新
看了一次

是人生历练吗
怎么她的分析和切入点
会这么的彻底

好赞

B说
她边看边哭
难以想象
那是何等共鸣感

B说
They were all trapped
and so are we.
Trapped in a situation
Trapped in a mode
...
Trapped

记得
自己也为一部片子
哭得不像话
曲终人散了
还是不能自己

[ 夜奔 ]

好多年后
才有勇气重看

共鸣感没有了
眼泪没有了

可是那段记忆
深深烙在心里

为了世俗的眼光
他放弃了爱
最后一眼
是那雪夜的分别

一晃眼
他们俩再重遇
他已化为他脚下的
一堆尘土

那是一种生离死别
的悲凉和遗憾

翻书会 - 一个人的幸福旅程


托了到台湾公干的朋友买了这三本书。昨天刚收到。朋友还拿了*诚品的纸带给我。我猜想她是把它当成了礼物送给我的。哈哈 *( 在台湾,拿纸带是要另外收费的 )
1 。[ 北海道/ 一个人的幸福旅程 ]
这是我前阵子在大众看到,可是又不舍得买的书。

2。[ 31岁又怎样 ]

哈~~ 我对书名有共鸣。还有,它的文案很有意思。


3
[ My Lohas 生活志]
前年从台湾的便利店带回了这本生活志,便不能自拔的爱上它。这是一本教你怎么乐活过日子的杂志。在新加坡还不流行乐活这个名词的时候,台湾已经非常提倡了。去年底,kinokuniya 终于把它带进来。不过数量不多, 要买记得预定。

请你们看 [ 北海道/ 一个人的幸福旅程 ] 的内页....




美食!!yummy.....


我一直很向往到札幌。听名字就好有feel.


曾经在台湾看过类似的风景


cute train....


骑马在草原上奔驰是我的心愿,可是我不会。哈~


很喜欢那面Mural。是美的lor.

遥远的璀璨


每年都拿不到NDP 门票的我们一家,一定会呆在家里看庆典。每年都在庆典接近尾声的时候,望出窗外。往庆典的方向望去。只为了那一刹那,遥远的璀璨。

新加坡还真小。

荷西

那生的生,死的死 从无知到己知 从己知到无知 历史从没解答过 爱的神秘 灵魂的离奇 而梦与时间里 宇宙进行着的 是层层的迷。梦里花落知多少序

这位大胡子叫荷西,是已故作家三毛的丈夫。我想~~读过三毛散文的人,对荷西绝对不会陌生。对于他们的爱情故事更是难以忘怀吧。三毛写了篇缅怀过世丈夫的文章 [ 一个男孩子的爱情 ] ,当时看了久久不能释怀。感叹老天的无情~~~~

最近在三毛的Facebook fan group里,读了篇很有趣的文章。笔者因为工作的关系去了西班牙,顺道过去LA PALMA 拉芭马岛。那是三毛和荷西住过的地方,三毛许多散文的故事背景都在拉芭马岛上。还有,荷西的墓地也在那里。于是,笔者在那里开始了一段寻找荷西墓地的故事。

Link : http://xaxaeiei.blog.sohu.com/57250190.html

看了文章,心是痛的。
笔者最后的结尾写得真好。

[ 我心里说 “ 三毛,谢谢你的故事,我替你看了荷西,然而,你或许不该死的。。。。。。。我想我会再来看荷西的,为那些永远美丽的故事。” ]

为了那些美丽的故事,我也好想到那里看看。
