the public relations panel discussion is finally over. i'm glad. i had fun tho. worked with 11 girls. like wtf right? but we managed unscathed. somehow. heh. we made quite an impact. with prof chen i'm-going-to-speak-in-shanghainese-if-the-class-don't-stop-talking ni grinning from ear to ear. it's disturbing. maybe cause i'm not a fan of hers. i think she caught me rolling my eyes or giggling in class. like all the time! she's got the i-know-what-you're-thinking look whenever she cast her eyes on me. *shudders* i was acting as an ang moh in our short but funny skit. trying to channel my inner brit was hard when deep inside, i'm all indian. haha.. here's the bloopers!
i was voted partner of the month. shock, shock. horror, horror. getting called partner of the month by atin is NOT FUNNY! thing is, i was given 30 bucks and the red tumbler i was eyeing as my prize. so yay! when i told my parents, my mum said, "eh, how get one?" i said its based on the managers votes and she replied, "wah! manager kelong." thanks mum. so much for the support. heh. it sucks that my face is at the counter - where everyone can bloody see. i look extremely horrid in that photo! and no is, i do not look like a moon! i anticipate regular customers asking who the hell the partner of the month is since i'm such a 'regular' face at the store. even imah goes to the store more often than i do! so yeah. i'm just waiting to hear all the comments like, "eh, who's this partner? is she new? never seen her before in the store.." kinda shit. *rolls eyes*
after a six month wait, i finally got to see la mome. i was tested along the way. i kept seeing the trailers. i prepared myself by listening to edith piaf's songs. i read the oscar buzz. marion on the red carpet. her hair. i want it. let's just say.. i REALLY wanted to watch the movie. badly.
on the opening day, teddy and me made our way. he was sleepy. i was hungry. but we made it. i thought i'd mention the awesomeness that is my bro. he knew who edith piaf was and her songs but had no idea who she was as a person. he knew i adore her thought i'd would want to watch it. so, we went! aww.. cho chweet right?
the movie was amazing. not your usual movie about a dead star. i love how the different stages of her life was superimposed with each other. a song linked to a memory. as usual, i had to have the soundtrack. i already have it. hah. there are so many favourite scenes. especially the ones with marcel cerdan in it. her affair with the boxing champion was unique. i don't agree with the idea. trust me, i'm big on honesty and trust. but her selfless gesture.. i can't remember the exact line right now. it's in french, it sounded magical. something about not having him for herself since he's got a wife and kids. she loved him but she won't be selfish enough to rob his wife and kids love for him. the ending was a dream. my favourite song of hers. aah.. oh ya, i thought marion was simply.. phenomenal. i love her. seriously. i think i'll check out oliver dahan's previous works.
i want to complain! i never get to see louis garrel's stuff. dvds and youtube does not count. this movie looks interesting. plus, romain duris is in it. like hell yeah. i hope i get my hands on this. like really.
argh! justin theroux's directorial debut. i want to see! aah.. the things i'll do for him. ask ayam. my eyes gleam when his name is mentioned. the poster is pretty, pretty. i swear this won't reach our shores. it ran for the tribecca circuit. that's it!
i've been waiting for this for a loOong time.. one of my favourite broadway musicals turned into a movie. it can go both ways. i hate the fact that now everyone know's about it. even the morons and retards who didn't have a clue, if not for the movie.
cillian and baby malachy. very the irish name ah. he's got daddy's eyes. i died for a second - too beautiful. he's going to be gorgeous. it's funny i'm not even envious.
this entry is soo cluttered.
i can't wait for tomorrow. study, study but must GOSSIP girlfriends. heh.
can someone tell me i'm not too old to fancy michael cera aka george michael in arrested development? he is the epitome of adorkable. the awkwardness, simply awesome. and he digs weezer?! gah!
