台灣篇﹕陽明山上的溫泉

上陽明山的途中﹐聞到一陣陣的硫磺味。上得越高﹐味道越來越重。原來山上也有溫泉呢。於是停在其中一個“冷水坑”公共溫泉看看。誰知一入女溫泉室﹐就嚇了我和譚媽一大跳。原來這個泡湯場是不穿衣服的! 很多亞巴桑都赤條條的走來走去。受不了呀~ 我們一看情況不對﹐便馬上退了出來。可惜呀﹐只好在外面的泡腳池邊拍拍照留念了。

台灣篇﹕陽明山上的風光

一大早便上陽明山散散步。很大霧﹐但很涼快。雖然從山上看台北的境像時模糊一片﹐但只看周圍的風境也夠了。

confused

今天跟他講電話時﹐有點陌生的感覺。。。真糟糕。

每次跟他分開一段日子﹐心都會野了﹐也沒有特別想念他的感覺。這麼久沒見﹐不是應該越來越想他的麼? 不明白自己究竟是怎麼了。煩!

或許回家後會回復正常吧。

年終假期

這個假期還未完﹐已在想下一個。今天和譚細佬在計劃年尾再來港。咦﹐不知大雄甚麼時候會來呢? 如果時間對我們便可以再來一次聚會了﹐呵呵~

昨晚譚爸又不舒服了﹐很擔心。所以也想快點再來探他。。。

台灣篇﹕淡水小吃

來到淡水﹐到處都是街頭小吃。我又怎能錯過呢??


「阿給」就是日文「阿不拉阿給」的簡稱﹐台灣名稱油豆腐。
油豆腐挖空後﹐填進湯汁甜味的冬粉(就是粉絲啦)﹐再用新鮮魚醬封口。蒸熟後﹐淋入特製的甜辣醬﹐即為全省馳名阿給之由來﹐也是淡水特色小吃之一。


走呀走﹐看見很多鹽酥菇的檔口﹐又忍不住要試試。咦﹐有多種菇類的選擇喎﹐有猴頭菇﹐有金針菇﹐還有另一種不知名的菇﹐真的好想全都試齊啊。但他們每份只准要一種菇﹐而我又要留個肚試其它食物﹐只好只要一份猴頭菇了。唔﹐外面脆卜卜﹐裡面煙煙韌韌的﹐好香口呢。


這個淡水鐵蛋好像也是很出名的。可惜我對皮蛋類的物體沒甚興趣﹐所以這個就pass啦!


淡水魚丸﹐魚蛋裡面有豬肉餡﹐好得意! 不過他們說要沾茄汁吃﹐我覺得怪怪的。還是清清的好吃~


這個黑糖mochi真的好好味! 很新鮮﹐不會太甜﹐又有一陣香香的黑糖味。我們最後還買了兩大盒回來香港﹐讚!


我在台灣幾天都是這樣﹐除了吃三餐正餐外還吃了這麼多的小吃。。。肥死了~

昨晚的夜景

聚會

很愉快的一個下午。奇怪﹐雖然這是我們第一次見面﹐但感覺上卻像老朋友了。你們都跟我想像中一模一樣呢。
多謝圓圓為我們準備了這麼多的食物啊~

台灣篇﹕淡水的風景

好美。因不是假日﹐人不多﹐很寫意。風很大﹐不過空氣真是清新。淡水的日落﹐真美。

台灣篇﹕紅樹林


坐捷運到淡水的途中﹐經過一個叫“紅樹林”的站。很喜歡這個地方的名字﹐也很想看看紅樹林是什麼樣子的。看見還有一個站便是淡水﹐於是下車去看看﹐決定從紅樹林步行到淡水。心想﹐一個車站的距離應該不會很遠吧。

誰知﹐走呀走﹐走呀走﹐都還未見到淡水。那條步行徑雖然風景很美﹐但也有很多蚊子。走了差不多大半個鐘﹐終於到達淡水。累到不得了﹐手臂上還被蚊叮了多處﹐又紅又腫又痕癢。:(

下次一定不會再為一個名子而衝動地下車了。

yummy

麥當當這個新出的芒果脆皮新地﹐好正呀!! 不過好易吃到一手都係雪糕。。。

台灣篇﹕士林官邸


也就是蔣介石的故居。我們去時已快關門﹐人流稀少﹐很清靜。因剛下完雨﹐天氣雖然悶熱﹐但也有陣陣涼風吹著。看些花花草草﹐在陰天涼快的天氣下漫步﹐真舒服~

台灣篇﹕國立故宮博物院


看厭了大陸的仿製品﹐去到台北當然一定要去故宮博物院看看些真品啦。

原來六月一日起他們便開始在館內禁止照相。於是趁著還可以影﹐我便照了多張出名的珍品來留念﹐如翠玉白菜、肉形石、白玉苦瓜等等。

看見唐寅的嫦娥圖﹐很震驚﹐看到不捨得走。才子的畫哦。

院內外面正在維修﹐很多地方都封了﹐很掃興。

台灣篇﹕返來了


四日三夜的台灣之旅這麼快便完了。不過﹐天公做美﹐到最後一天才下雨。去了很多地方﹐吃到很多美食。嘩哈哈~ 你們有沒有掛住我呀?

照了很多相片﹐讓我整理好便放上來吧。

唉o也﹐外面正下著大雨﹐行雷閃電的﹐看來今晚也沒街去了。:(

冰鮮鵝


原來現在香港沒有新鮮鵝吃﹐燒鵝都是冰鮮的。沒鵝腸吃﹐好失望呀~ 幸好明天去台灣了﹐可以吃個飽。Yeah! :O~

to snoopy

本約了史路比今天見面的﹐但因要陪譚媽﹐趕不切而告吹。很失望﹐要等多一個星期了! Snoopy﹐真對不起呀! -_-

大長今駕到

下午時經過愉景新城。一入去已覺得不大對勁。。。原來大長今快要出現!


越來越多人。最後大長今沒見到﹐只見到厚厚的人牆。周圍的閃光燈不斷地閃﹐我真的想問他們﹐究竟在影什麼呀??


後來﹐見到仍然不斷有人潮湧入商場﹐實在忍不住了﹐趁還未太混亂時走人~

在人叢中逼出去時聽到以下的對話-
阿伯﹕“原來而家做fan屎都唔易架~”(阿伯真係有智慧)
一男人跟他幾歲大的女兒說﹕“o拿﹐一陣間睇唔到唔准喊架!”(這時﹐我好想跟他說﹐“你預你位小妹妹喊硬都得啦!”)
師奶﹕“我個女今朝六點就黎左排頭位啦。。。”(?!)

離開後﹐去了又一城。這才發覺﹐又一城真好。^^

記事

特地乘上次還未開的馬鐵出沙田。怎麼黃金時段還是水靜河飛的﹖跟東鐵真是差天共地﹐不過好處是一定有空位坐﹐嘻嘻。

本想試試這間上海小吃店﹐但人山人海。。。算!

購物天

商務印減價呀~ 見到是最後兩天﹐便不顧一切的買。 唉﹐一時重手了。下星期還要到臺灣買書﹐希望到時我的行李不會超重啦。


買了傳說中的米通紐結糖﹐咖啡味好濃啊。

6:01am


在機上看見一個女孩手提著一大盒的Krispy Kreme 甜甜圈﹐真的有那麼好吃嗎? O_o

The end of a saga


The theater we went to last night had all their 16 screens playing Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith at midnight, yet when we arrived an hour and a half before the show starts, all the good seats were taken. Although we had to sit at the third row, our spirits were still high. Afterall, this is the last installment of the Star Wars saga.

It was the loudest and most enthusiastic movie crowd I've been with for quite some time. People were cheering and clapping constantly, some even started a crowd wave before the movie began.

11:55pm, the trailers started. Wow, they showed a LOT of trailers, lots of big blockbusters, but the one that stuck out to me the most was "Fantastic Four". Another marvel comic book turn movie, it really looked fantastic!

Finally, the movie starts. I have to say, when I saw the vast sea of stars as a backdrop for the big title STAR WARS, the rolling of the words which crawls into infinity, along with the familiar music, my heart was racing.

Onto the movie itself, I don't want to spoil it to anybody, even though almost eveybody knows what this movie is about and what is to happen. What I can say is that I loved it. It has all the galactic actions that I wanted to see, and without all the supposedly romantic dialogs that were so cheesy and pretentious from Episode II. (although there are still some, but it's bearable) The story is very strong, I felt that it really tied up all the loose ends from all the movies. I could really feel Darth Vadar's pain at the end, about how and why he became what he became later on, and how much suffering he went through to get there. I especially liked the scene when we saw the physical transformation, it was very powerful and satisfying.

And of course, seeing Chewbacca in the movie is such a treat. He's just so cute! ^^

By the time we were leaving the movie theater, I actually felt kind of sad. Think about it, this is the LAST time we will see a Star Wars movie for the first time on the big screen ever again. Like Nikita said, I'm honored to be part of this cultural phenomenon.

小別

昨晚看完Star Wars: Episode III﹐跟他道別時已是零晨三時多。雖然只是小別兩個星期﹐口口聲聲說沒問題的我居然覺得依依不捨﹐遲遲不肯離去。我想﹐這是好現像。

回來後﹐可能會下一個決定。

Bathory

Interesting... they're together again! :)
Hawke, Delpy in "Bathory"

Who is Countess Erzebet Bathory?

Take my breath away

你試過那種吻? 淺的﹐深的﹐長的﹐短的﹐法式的﹐青蜓點水式的。。。

我最懷念的是那種令人窒息的吻﹐像“Before Sunrise”裡Jesse和Celine在摩天輪上的第一個吻。不是型式上的﹐也跟接吻技巧沒有關係。重要的是接吻的對象和當時的氣氛。不一定是長而深的吻﹐只要是淺淺的一吻已可以令人喘息不已。那種震撼的感覺真是難以形容。

我的初吻是在一個很偶然的情況下發生的。我們倆簡直毫無技巧可言﹐記得他很緊張﹐給了我一個很濕的吻﹐其實很嘔心。可是﹐偏偏卻令我回味無窮。因為那時的心境很年輕﹐覺得浪漫到暈。

現在跟一個人在一起久了﹐那種窒息的吻已一去不返。有時會想﹐跟他結婚的話﹐那不是這輩子也再嚐不到那種感覺了?

不日上映

閒來無事﹐上蘋果的電影預告網頁看看。嘩﹐很多非常吸引的電影呀:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - 不用說了﹐肯定會去看的。
Corpse Bride - 又是Tim Burton和Johnny Depp﹐正! 咦﹐怎麼跟Nightmare before Christmas那麼相似?
Batman Begins - 看Bruce怎樣變做Batman﹐也看Tom Cruise的新女Katie Holmes。
A Very Long Engagement - 原來舊年已上畫﹐有Amelie的Audrey Tautou﹐怎麼我會錯過了呢? 網上說快出影碟了﹐一定要租來看看。
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - 是五本書中我最喜愛的一本﹐那個黑暗的時代終於開始。
Bewitched - 跟原裝Bewitched不一樣﹐電影版是講一個電視節目的故事﹐而演女主角的Nicole Kidman真的是一個女巫。好像有點無聊。。。
Mr. and Mrs. Smith -看trailer好像好正﹐不過。。。現實中的奸夫淫婦喎﹐有點嘔心。
The Pink Panther - 傻豹回來了! 今次換了Steve Martin扮法國佬﹐不太像樣哦。
The Island - 講SciFi講複製人﹐還有Ewan McGregor和Scarlett Johansson﹐夠了。
Chicken Little - 這套也是不用多說﹐知道原因的就去看吧。

美女與野獸



昨晚在rip CD入iTunes時無意中發現已很久沒聽的《Beauty and the Beast: The Broadway Musical》原聲唱片。很高興﹐真是像發現新大陸一樣﹐因為差點已忘記自己有這張碟了。那時跟男友分手﹐他想跟我要回這張CD﹐我還假裝說我不見了呢﹐呵呵~

覺得這張唱片的歌很有味道。雖然大部分的歌都跟原裝迪士尼動畫裡的歌一樣﹐但總是覺得唱broadway的水準就是不一樣。那時便是因為聽了這張唱片才去看歌劇的。記得那套歌劇真的很感人﹐看完後第二天我要參加鋼琴比賽﹐還贏了第一。我的鋼琴老師說從未看過我彈琴這麼有感情。其實﹐彈的時候我正在想著歌劇的情節呢。^^

阿四的大日子

阿四﹐生日快樂呀!!!!
祝你 開開心心﹐越來越靚﹐快D嫁得出!! ^^
在此送上你最愛的蛙類物體。。。 總有一天你會找到他的! :D

像水一樣的“濃湯”


自從知道有一間較高級的海鮮酒家“順峰”開張後﹐細姨便常常嚷著要去。今天抵不住她的死纏爛打﹐終於帶她去試一試。坐下來後四周望望﹐環境都算不錯啦。餐牌上圖文並戊﹐所有食物看起來都好像很好吃的樣子。那個侍應說他們的套餐很抵食﹐於是我們每人叫了個每位USD$48.8的套餐。
有﹕
金獎原隻鮑魚
濃湯野菌金鉤翅
招牌皇帝鴿半隻 或 澳門金牌燒肉
上湯浸菜心
順德荷葉糯米飯
金牌燕液金球

其實我們叫時已知道以這樣的價錢那些魚翅和鮑魚都不會好得那裡去。可是真的想不到差到這樣。那個“濃湯”不單稀到像水一樣﹐淡而無味﹐湯中那些野菌還是酸酸壞掉的! 雖然那個部長馬上陪不是﹐還扣掉我們湯的價錢﹐但我們都已非常失望。譚媽還整晚在擔心我們﹐說吃了壞的野菌會食物中毒呢﹐唉。跟著上的菜都還可以﹐勉勉強強啦。只是分量都是小小的﹐賣相又不很好﹐引不起我的食慾。

以後都不會再光顧他們了。

Kobe!!!


下午時一心想去Teuscher朱古力店買我最愛吃的香檳truffle﹐於是便拉著譚媽和細姨到Fashion Island逛逛。今天天氣非常好﹐出大太陽﹐所以這個室外shopping center特別多人。

看﹐連水池邊也坐滿了人。


去到朱古力店﹐他們說香檳truffle已賣光﹐要到星期一才有貨。好失望呀!!


誰知﹐好戲在後頭。正垂頭喪氣地準備回家時﹐居然給我遇見了他!!!!!!!!! 哈哈哈﹐他真的好好人。譚媽不懂得用我部相機﹐要我教了很久才知怎樣幫我照相。他也好脾氣的在旁等著。我跟他說話時太緊張了﹐連聲都震起來呢。(blur了我的興奮樣﹐實在太樣衰了。。。)嘩嘩嘩~

吃在小西貢

譚媽這幾天常說在港時都沒有好的越南菜吃﹐嚷著在美時一定要去吃一餐地道的越南菜。於是今天便選了這家專做越南粉捲的“西湖餐室”午膳。他們的粉捲真的不錯﹐粉皮薄到不得了﹐裡面的瘦肉和雲耳都爆得香香的。送著他們的蝦餅﹐肉扎和秘製辣椒魚露﹐真是人間美味!


吃完午餐﹐還走了去隔壁的越南甜品店吃各式各樣的甜品。他們的湯圓都是大大粒的﹐好得意~


好滿足!

日記

從小到大都有寫日記的習慣。不過﹐一直都不喜歡讀回以前的日記﹐不堪回首嘛。今晚卻不知怎麼了﹐一時興起﹐拿出大學時的一本日記簿來看。最初看得津津有味﹐但越讀便越驚。那時真是幼稚得可以啊﹐整天只是掛著吃喝玩樂和男孩子﹐真不知是怎樣畢到業的。

突然﹐看到這一段﹕
“J話A依家一係就要我做佢女朋友﹐一係佢就放棄。我真係唔知自己咁花心和唔定性﹐com唔commit到和定下來﹐淨係和A一齊。I really don't think I'm ready!”

o下? 嚇了一驚﹐這句怎麼這麼熟﹐好像現在的我? 難道﹐我還是跟從前一模一樣﹐一點也沒變過?!

這時﹐再也讀不下去了。合上日記﹐將它放回車房的紙箱裡﹐封起來。有些記憶﹐還是封起來比較好。

Let me sing you a waltz

Continuing my "Before Sunset" craze...

A Waltz For A Night - Julie Delpy


Let me sing you a waltz
Out of nowhere, out of my thoughts
Let me sing you a waltz
About this one night stand

You were for me that night
Everything I always dreamt of in life
But now you're gone
You are far gone
All the way to your island of rain

It was for you just a one night thing
But you were much more to me
Just so you know

I hear rumors about you
About all the bad things you do
But when we were together alone
You didn't seem like a player at all

I don't care what they say
I know what you meant for me that day
I just wanted another try
I just wanted another night
Even if it doesn't seem quite right
You meant for me much more
Than anyone I've met before

One single night with you little Jesse
Is worth a thousand with anybody

I have no bitterness, my sweet
I'll never forget this one night thing
Even tomorrow, another arms
My heart will stay yours until I die

Let me sing you a waltz
Out of nowhere, out of my blues
Let me sing you a waltz
About this lovely one night stand

慈父多敗兒

這邊的天氣開始轉熱﹐一連幾天我都熱到睡不著覺。

跟譚媽投訴後﹐她走入我房察看﹐一看便破口大罵。
“你傻o架~ 咁熱都還用絲棉被! 怪不得睡不著啦~ 還不快點換了它!”
“。。。不過我好鍾意張被呀﹐好軟好fluffy嘛~”
“費事睬你!”

跟著﹐打電話跟譚爸聊天時又講起。
“好慘﹐譚媽要逼我換掉張絲棉被呀~”
“你不用換絲棉被﹐開冷氣啦! 開行部冷氣襟絲棉被﹐係人生一大樂事來o架~“

譚媽知道後﹐氣得說不出話來。我則像個偷吃了糖果的小孩﹐開開心心地開冷氣去。

I don't miss you

近來好喜歡好喜歡這首歌。。。

Don't miss you at all - Norah Jones

As I sit and watch the snow
Fallin' down
I don't miss you at all
I hear children playin' laughin' so loud
I don't think of your smile

So if you never come to me
You'll stay a distant memory
Out my window I see light going dark
Your dark eyes don't haunt me

And then I wonder who I am
Without the warm touch of your hand

And then I wonder who I am
Without the warm touch of your hand
As I sit and watch the snow
Fallin' down

I don't miss you at all
I don't miss you at all
I don't miss you at all

電郵

今天發現﹐很久以前那個人寫給我的電郵全不見了。

我也不知道是好事還是壞事。有點失落﹐因那些電郵曾經是我最重要的。他的英文很好﹐是唯一一個寫情詩給我的人呢。(那時年紀小﹐真是覺得好浪漫的啊~)但也覺得有點解脫的感覺﹐都已是那麼久前的事了﹐真不知道自己還常常看來幹嘛。

有時覺得自己很傻﹐常常惦著那個傷自己傷得最深的人。可能﹐那傷口是永遠都好不起來了。

"Maybe getting over someone you’re in love with isn’t impossible. Unless, maybe you don’t actually get over it. Maybe you just learn to live with it."
- Felicity

我好肚餓呀

呀呀呀~

近來吃得太多﹐連譚媽都說我肥了很多﹐唉。這個星期開始節食﹐和晚晚去yoga。晚餐只是吃水果便算﹐今晚也是這樣。但到了十點左右我的肚皮便在打鼓了﹐連電視都提不起興趣看。*咕嚕咕嚕咕嚕*

算﹐一於早點去睡覺﹐便不會這麼難捱了。>_<

TAR7: Season Finale


- The first half of the episode was pretty irrelevant, since everyone is bunched up by the second half...
- But how funny was it that Romber got pulled over at the police check point, while nobody else did! hahaha... This is call karma, Rob!
- NOOOOO, why does Uchoyce have all the bad luck? They always get screwed with the bad car!
- Damn, Ron and Kelly are first. Good news is, they didn't win any prizes hehe.
- This is so weird, we all knew that nobody is getting eliminated at this leg, since it's always 3 teams racing to the finish. But I guess taking away the last group's stuff is a first.
- Seeing Uchenna begging for money and Joyce crying was so sad. People in Jamaica are cheap!
- whoa, Uchoyce getting on that flight with Romber really won them the race! Way to go! You can see Rob was very pissed off... :) It was unusal that the pilot would be willing to pull the plane back to the gate though. I sense something fishy here...
- Romber had all the luck throughout the entire race, but when it boils down to the final leg when it really counts, they totally screwed up by getting lost. TOO BAD!
- You can see what good people Uchoyce are with that taxi cab driver. If it was me, I would not have told him that I don't have the money, and just told him to wait outside and let me finish the race, then I'll pay him! geeez, they're crazy to potentially lose a million dollars for a stupid 25 bucks!
- Congratulations to Uchenna and Joyce, you guys really deserve it!! Editing totally fooled us, Romber was not even close.
- I just read in a magazine that Uchoyce filed for bankruptcy right before they joined the race, I guess they can really put the money in good use eh?
- As usual, I wish that I could go to TARCON in NYC, but here are some pictures - enjoy!
- May 24 is "Rob and Amber get Married" TV special... hmmm.... should I TiVo it? ^^
- Can't wait for TAR8! I wonder if Rupert from Survivor really is going to be in it?

我的soulmate在那兒?

看完“Before Sunrise”和“Before Sunset”後﹐又開始胡思亂想。究竟是否每個人都有自己的soulmate呢? 如電影裡所說的﹐"We can only be complete with another person"? 在這世上真的只有一個人是可以完全屬於自己的? 那麼﹐要找到這個人真是比海底撈針還困難啊。

想起亦舒的《天秤座事故》有以下這一段:
“華燈已上,推開玻璃門出去,日朗滿眼是一圈圈炫黃的燈光,一時不留神,沒有看清路上,腳底一滑,膝頭一軟,竟要摔倒。
電光石火間,日朗心中想:糟糕,這一跤,只恐怕要受傷,怎麼辦?怎麼辦?
說時遲那時快,忽然有一只強壯有力的手臂緊緊把她扶住;然后,從容不迫協助她站定。
日朗驚魂甫定,大聲嘆息,先看看全身上下有無損傷,再連聲道謝。
這人簡直是救命菩薩。
一邊範立軒已替日朗拾起地上手袋。
日朗定神一看恩人,倒是呆住了。
只見他高大英俊,氣宇不凡,正微微向日朗欠身,微笑,但不說話。
日朗心中升起一股無法形容的微妙感覺,她站在那里發呆,這是什麼人?為什麼日朗想,這人如果開口叫她跟他走,她會立刻考慮回家收拾包袱?”


很想很想能遇到一個這樣的人﹐一個第一次見面便能讓我跟他走的人。活了這麼多年﹐還沒碰到過﹐很不甘心。還是﹐世上跟本沒有這樣浪漫的好事? 都是虛構的?

賭仔心態

去完Vegas回來後﹐發覺自己永遠都不能住在近賭場的地方﹐不然的話一定會破產。因為實在太大引誘了﹐而自己的定力又不夠﹐太貪。在賭場內玩了一晚﹐本來已贏了幾百元﹐準備收手。但剛要走時周圍跟自己同檯的賭客一齊起哄﹐又因贏開覺得運氣不錯﹐於是便繼續玩下去。跟著便開始輸﹐慢慢的已把贏來的錢輸掉一半。這時又不甘心﹐心想﹐最少要贏回本來贏的吧~ 最後﹐終於輸了幾十元離場。只好輸少當贏吧﹐唉!

Make Believe


出了出了! 隻“Perfect situation”和“Freak me out”幾好聽。。。

20D

今天發現他居然趁我去賭城時偷偷的買了這個。真是氣死我了!! 不過﹐看見他那個開心到暈個樣﹐又“哦”佢唔落﹐唉。我唔明﹐一部咁貴既相機有咩好? :(

More on "Before Sunset"


Since my last post, I have watched "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" two more times. Call me a freak, I don't care. I think these two have officially become my favorite movies of all times.

I'm obsessed. I guess in a way that's why I like the main character Celine so much. She said in the first movie that she's always obsessed about random little things. Sometimes she's even obsessed about people whom she doesn't even really like. That is so true. Why do we do that?

After seeing these two movies again and again, I have to say that I like "Before Sunset" more than its predecessor. "Before Sunrise" is about two simple minded young kids who still have their whole lives ahead of them, full of hopes and dreams, and are willing to open up their hearts easily to strangers on a train. In "Before Sunset" however, they have grown up. They have gone through the ups and downs of life, they have suffered, and now their hearts are well guarded. The two main characters, Jesse and Celine, have way more depth than before. Watching the two of them constantly talking throughout their entire time together, trying to figure out if there's still something there, was fascinating. Watching the two of them trying to fake that their current lives are great, then led to the complete meltdown in the car, was heartbreaking.

I loved the fact that at the beginning of the movie, the two of them looked so mature and cool about life, but when they started to spend more time together, they've slowly re-discovered their youthful days, their hopes and desires.

My favorite quotes from the movie:
"Jesse: Oh, God, why didn't we exchange phone numbers and stuff? Why didn't we do that?
Celine: Because we were young and stupid.
Jesse: Do you think we still are?
Celine: I guess when you're young, you just believe there'll be many people with whom you'll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.
Jesse: And you can screw it up, you know, misconnect."

"Celine: Baby, you are gonna miss that plane.
Jesse: I know."


Of course, if you're into action movies, funny movies, or movies with a plot, this one is not for you. I saw an online review of this movie that I couldn't agree more. It said,"This movie is not for the eyes, but for the heart."

hmmm.. I think I'm going to watch it again tonight, haha.

==============================================
***WARNING: major spoiler to the ending***
Extra - I found this from another review that I just read on amazon, which gives a little insight to the ending for us hopeless romantics:

"Most people have an opinion about the ending of "Before Sunset." Some love it, some hate it, but most are frustrated by the ambiguity, at least initially. Do they stay together? Or does each of them return to their committed relationship?

We can't be certain what happens, but the writers (Linklater and the two lead actors) have given us some very strong clues.

In the final scene, the song playing on Celine's stereo is called "Just in Time," performed by Nina Simone. Simone is famous for singing very moving, haunting, sad songs. But "Just in Time" is quite happy: "Just in time/I found you just in time/before you came, my time was running low/I was lost/the losing dice were tossed/my bridges all crossed/nowhere to go/Now you're here and now I know just where I'm going/no more doubt or fear/I've found my way/For love came just in time/you found me just in time/and changed my lonely life."

Why do you think the writers picked that song? What do you think it tells us?

(It also might be interesting that Nina Simone was an American living in France. Jesse is American, will he move to France?)

In that final scene, Celine is dancing and playfully singing along with Nina Simone, while Jesse is smiling and enjoying her performance. The last thing Celine says to Jesse is "Baby, you're going to miss that plane," and the last thing he says to her is "that's right" (or something to that effect). Does this sound like how two people who love each other would act if one of them was about to fly away and they were never going to see each other again?

Maybe the ending is not so ambiguous, after all.

vegas trip - pictures

回來了! 照了很多相。。。

那天天空很多雲﹐但很漂亮。

到Vegas必經的兩個名店特賣場。

在車中困了四個多鐘﹐終於到了! 我們住的酒店樓下便是賭場﹐很方便。場內還定時有空中飛人表演呢。


第一次坐新建的monorail。一程要差不多USD$4﹐其實都蠻貴的。。。


來到賭城﹐又怎能不去吃酒店內的自助餐呢? 一個人要USD$30﹐好貴哦!

Sunrise and Sunset

After reading all those raving reviews online, I finally watched "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" back to back last night.

"Before Sunrise":

This movie is about how an American boy and a French girl met on a train, and decided to spend a day together in Vienna before he had to fly back to the States the following morning.

Most scenes are focused on the two of them talking. Nothing specific really, just family, love, dreams and thoughts. At first, I wasn't sure. All those conversations seem to be pointless. But slowly as time passed, the more I was drawn into the two characters. Then it dawned on me, their conversations are real. This is not some cheesy movie dialogs that are made up by some clueless writer. They actually made us feel like the two of them are connecting on a higher level. This is a story about two young kids who were full of hopes and dreams, and how they possibly fell in love with each other in merely one day's time.

The ending is bittersweet, but left us wondering what happens after. And that is why being able to watch "Before Sunset" right after is such a treat. I'm glad I didn't have to wait nine years for it.

"Before Sunset":

After nine years, the American boy and the french girl are all grown up, and met again in Paris. This time, he had to catch a flight at 10pm, and it's already well into the afternoon when they met.

Their conversations grew up as well, this time they talk about politics, family, believes, life, and lots of "what ifs". He's now a novelist, and she's working for some environmental firm. At first, they both acted like that night nine years ago did not mean that much to each other, but as time goes on we found out the truth, that night meant more to them than anything else in the world.

He's not happy with his marriage, and she's seeing some photo journalist who's never around. (which makes the audience happy, because we want to believe that they're only meant for each other!) They're so thirsty in the area of love, we can see that by how they tried to steal every minute from the time they have left with each other.

As the movie progresses the two of them gets more and more intense. My heart was pounding faster and faster as the time nears when he had to leave.

There was no kissing, no lovers' jibberish, just one hug, barely any touching at all, but I can easily say that this is the most romantic movie I have ever seen. I have to own them on DVDs now so that I can watch them over and over again.

要去賭城賺點零用﹐也或會去跟蹤左麟右李。
忙著收拾細軟﹐因此今晚貼歌詞算數。。。 ^^
不在時請各位善心人士代為照顧小小冬! 小女子感激不盡~

Sunspots (NIN)

Sunspots cast a glare in my eyes
Sometimes I forget I'm alive

I feel it coming and I've got to get out of its way
I hear it calling and I come cause I can't disobey
I should not listen and I shouldn't believe but I do, yes I do

She turns me on, she makes it real
I have to apologize, for the way I feel

My life it seems has taken a turn
Why in the name of God would I ever want to return?

Peel off our skin we're gonna burn what we were to the ground
Fuck in the fire and we'll spread all the ashes around
I want to kill away the rest of what's left and I do, yes I do

She turns me on, she makes it real
I have to apologize, for the way I feel
And nothing can stop me now
And there is nothing to fear
And everything I'd ever want
Is inside of here

Now I just stare into the sun
And I see everything I've done
I think I could have been someone
But I can't stop stuff has begun
When everything is said and done
And there is no place left to run
I think I used to be someone
Now I just stare into the sun

自從遊戲機到手後﹐每晚我們都搶著來玩。D先生更是去到那兒都帶著它﹐連上廁所時也不肯放低﹐真的好核突!

我玩得最多的是Lumines﹐我叫它做tetris on steroids。D先生則玩他的Twisted Metal: Head-On。 為了它﹐電視看少了﹐網也上少了﹐是好事。可是﹐睡覺也少了﹐這星期我每天在公司也渴睡到不得了呢。*呵欠*

p.s.如有誰知道它還有出甚麼好玩的遊戲﹐請一定要通知我喲~ ^^

擁抱

突然﹐很想念從前那個他的擁抱。

其實我們的那一段早已演變成純潔的友情﹐也已不記得跟他擁抱時是甚麼感覺的了。但不知怎的﹐很想再試一次。可能是因為剛和他通過訊﹐勾起一些已忘掉但美好的回憶吧。

很奇怪﹐雖然已記不起他的擁抱﹐但我卻仍然清楚記得他的氣味。是一種淡淡的﹐清爽的鬚後水味道。

真希望時光倒流﹐讓我可以再體驗一下那個已遺忘了的擁抱。

放榜了

公司其中的一個project終於快要煞科了。今天﹐他們把這個project的film credits貼在壁佈版上讓大家看。每次film credits出時﹐心情都會緊張得好像考試放榜一樣﹐七上八落的。

看見自己的名字後﹐鬆了一口氣。當然﹐有人歡喜有人愁﹐也有人落榜的。因為版面有限﹐他們不可能把所有人的名字列出﹐只能選出對齣戲最有貢獻的部份人。

近三年的成果﹐終於有回報了。因為有credits就等於可以參加十月的煞科派對﹐呵呵~

刻不容緩

越來越發覺﹐timing對於一段感情來講真的很重要。

如果錯過了表白的機會﹐原本有可能的會變成沒可能。
如果早一點愛上﹐三角苦戀可能就不會出現。
如果遲一點遇到﹐已成熟了的兩個人可能便能互相遷就。
如果早一點結婚﹐可能雙方就不會那麼輕易放手。
如果抓不住那一剎那﹐可能就會永遠失去。

太多的愛情﹐天時地利都有了﹐就只是差了時間的配合﹐最後無疾而終。

下次機會來臨時﹐千萬不要錯過了!

刻不容緩 (唱: 李克勤﹐容祖兒)

克:從來亦無自信 人云亦云 庸庸碌碌半生
連自己的戀愛運 也欠一點決心
容:為何望來望去 仍無下文 明明彼此有同感
難道等一天變做熟人 發現原來相襯

克:可否冷靜看一陣 容:都有幾個人靠近
合:現在還未說 纏綿情節會 逐漸降溫

* 克:遲來一秒鐘 遲疑一秒鐘
從迎接你變做目送
容:遲來一秒鐘 沿途經過和結局
其實太不同
克:遲遲未預備 第一句愛你
已經足夠醞釀暗湧
容:盼望猶豫未決的情人回信
猶如行刑懸在半空

合:拖一拖 等一等 怕得到 得來 已是無用
拖一拖 等一等 這刻的感動 變做裂縫 *

克:良辰就如白費 明明動情 怎會不敢作聲
容:提示很不足 但你的態度 永遠不得要領

克:相戀要是有天命 容:都要等你來確認
合:現在還未說 纏綿情節會 逐漸結冰

克:相戀要是有天命 容:都要等你來確認
容:現在還未說 克:還未認
合:纏綿情節會 逐漸結冰

克:遲來一秒鐘 遲疑一秒鐘 良緣永遠這樣斷送
容:遲來一秒鐘 仍然等你來告白 何事你都未動容
克:明明在附近 又不告訴你 太多戀愛這樣告終
容:怕在離場後接到遲來情信 其時和旁人在抱擁

合:拖一拖 等一等 怕這點 激情 最後和緩
拖一拖 等一等 終於知 表白 刻不容緩

TAR7: episode 11


- That turkish dance thing? I don't understand why everyone was saying it was magical and amazing... I agree with Rob, they look like dead people, hehe.
- Way to go Romber and RonKelly for finding an earlier flight.
- How the heck did Romber find someone to take them everywhere again??
- I heart Uchenna and Joyce. They are such good people~ Uchenna even helped Meredith push that boat! awwww...
- I can't stand Kelly anymore. Her constant bitching and her zit-infested face. How did she become the beauty queen?!
- That was a good yield. I would've yielded RonKelly too. It's towards the end of the race so every little thing counts.
- Hard roadblock, it would've taken me hours to learn how to back in with a double-decker bus. :P
- Meredith and Gretchen, you are the weakest link, goodbye!
- Next week, two hour season finale! The preview looks SO GOOD! I hope Romber get arrested.

bird rage

好憎﹐好憎它們。憎它們的程度僅次在魚類之下。尤其﹐每次當我正在寫意地開車的時候﹐它們會出奇不意地送我一份大禮。一份綠綠黃黃﹐非常嘔心的﹐會黏在我車窗上的大禮。它們瞄得很準﹐總是會把禮送到對我對到正一正的車窗前面﹐令我不能轉移視線。因為在開車﹐所以想吐也要忍著﹐被逼皺著眉頭﹐繼續一邊開車﹐一邊欣賞著它們的傑作。

這時﹐我真的好想殺盡天下所有的鳥類物體。去死吧!!!!!

他們結婚了


本來他們應該明年才結婚的。但兩星期前﹐丹麥的一間建築師樓收了她做暑期工。今個星期四便出發﹐一去便是三個月。於是﹐他們臨時決定在她出發前結婚﹐好讓雙方都安心。因甚麼也沒準備﹐只有昨天匆忙地去註冊﹐今晚在一德國酒吧裡和一眾朋友慶祝便算。

沒有華麗的婚紗﹐沒有童話式的婚禮﹐沒有滿場的玫瑰花﹐也沒有醉人的樂隊表演。可是不知為甚麼﹐總覺得他們的spontaneity真是浪漫到極點。

我﹐就是缺乏那一點點他們有的勇氣和決心。太理智了﹐想浪漫也浪漫不起來。
