不日上映

昨晚跟少爺去看District 9﹐也看了很多電影預告﹐全都是一些古古怪怪的科幻/恐佈片。本來都不是我那杯茶﹐但居然有幾齣讓我留下了深刻印像。

Surrogates - 人類世界變成機械人世界。真人只需要睡在家裡便可以控制他們的機械人surrogate去做所有事情。好久沒看Bruce Willis的電影了﹐這齣很有Matrix/Total Recall的feel﹐少爺說一定要看~


Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant - 又是關於吸血彊屍的戲﹐不過這次是發生在一個靈異馬戲團的故事。有John C. Reilly﹐看來很不錯的樣子~


Legion - Paul Bettany演從天上降臨的天使﹐為了拯救唯一能挽救人類的再世主。有點Constantine的feel﹐帶點宗教色彩但不失科幻。

登登登登!

(500) Days of Summer



*****WARNING: CONTAIN SPOILERS*****
Can't really say whether I love or hate this movie. It was...unexpected. It was not an ordinary Hollywood love story, instead, it's a story about a boy and a girl, it's a story about... how they are NOT meant to be together.

I loved the movie, yet I hated the movie at the same time. I love the movie because of its creative storytelling, because of its soundtrack (The Smiths!), because of the way it uses blue as Summer's color, because of the general tone of the movie, and because of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. (can't believe the little alien from "Third Rock from the Sun" is all grown up! :P) What I didn't love about the movie, is that it hits a little too close to home. If you have followed my blog for more than a few years... you would know that, I WAS Summer. I was the girl who had a guy who wanted to marry me, and I knew he was in love with me, yet I couldn't bring myself to tell him that sorry, you're not the one. I was the girl who broke his heart. It was a past that I don't like to revisit, yet there it was, staring right at me on the big screen. That last scene with the two main characters in the park, with her telling Tom how her husband just gave her that feeling that she never had with him, was just too much for me.

Besides all that, the movie was GREAT. But... after a whole movie's length of anticipation, of how the two main characters are supposed to be soulmates, turns out that everything's about how they're NOT soulmates, you just can't help to be disappointed in the end. In real life, you don't call that a journey about love, you call that a waste of time. :P

I think the "surprise" ending was a nice touch, otherwise it would've been such a downer movie for me. This is exactly why I never like to watch movies with sad endings. I don't go watch a movie for that sad and depressing feeling.

Did I regret watching this movie? Absolutely not. Will I watch this movie again? Probably not.

綠粉

是的﹐我也開始喝Erica推介的排毒綠粉了。(女人錢真易賺! :P)

為的是甚麼?! 當然是因為這瓶綠粉的好評甚多﹐據說喝這個能排毒通便美容令身體更健康﹐而對我來說最重要的當然是排毒=減肥啦! 呵呵呵~~~~ 因為這個綠粉基本上是各種蔬菜濃縮而成﹐所以只會有好處不會有壞處的喇~ (我果然變成師奶了....:O)

蔬菜沖水當然不會好味﹐不過我學Erica說的﹐加了些益力多/calpico才喝﹐真的容易入口很多。 遲些日子讓我再來報告一下用後結果吧~

好天氣



作曲: 林一峰
作詞: 少爺占
編曲/ 監製 : 何秉舜/ 陳奐仁
主唱 : 林一峰/ 林二汶

藍和白形成了天 你共我樂透半天
倚在你肩 靠在海邊
星星月亮兩手牽
日與夜變化萬千
坐上飛氈 飛到天邊

在水平線 就這樣分不出黑白天
在天堂見 折翼天使吃著半支煙

天氣還算好 就算下大雨令你很糟 不覺你糊塗
天氣還算好 縱遇上風暴令你跌倒 有我待你好

藍和白形成了天 你共我樂透半天
倚在你肩 靠在海邊
星星月亮兩手牽
日與夜變化萬千
坐上飛氈 飛到天邊

在懸崖邊 遼闊天地再會看得見
在回南天 証實戀愛日期沒改變

天氣還算好 就算下大雨令你很糟 不覺你糊塗
天氣還算好 縱遇上風暴令你跌倒 有我待你好

天氣還算好 就算下大雨令你很糟 不覺你糊塗
天氣還算好 縱遇上風暴令你跌倒 有我待你好

同再起步 同再起步
同再起步 同再起步

思念是一種很玄的東西

那天少爺在開車﹐我則望著車外的風景。心中一動﹐突然想念起外婆來。

「呀﹐你都未陪我去拜過婆婆。我哋搵日去好唔好?」
「好呀!」

思念真是奇怪的一回事﹐往往會毫無因由地襲來﹐讓人措手不及。我沒有跟少爺說的是﹐在那一刻我的心很痛﹐想念她想念得快要哭出來了。

有時候我很懊惱﹐為甚麼在我生命裡這樣重要的一個人會沒有見過少爺。她會一直以為﹐從前見過面的那個就是我的真名天子嗎?

有太多話想跟她說。很不甘心。


很想﹐很想您。

掌紋



今天洗澡時無意間留意到我的掌心﹐掌紋比從前多了好多﹐嚇了一跳。其實比起很多人來說﹐我的掌紋已是非常簡單(我是內涵不多嗎? XD)﹐但以前我除了有簡單的生命線感情線智慧線三條大線外﹐真的是甚麼小紋也沒有的呀。

是人大了﹐煩惱多了﹐掌紋才越來越多越來越深嗎?

老忠實客棧

看完噴泉後大家都餓了﹐便走到噴泉旁的Old Faithful Inn吃個自助午餐。據少爺找回來的資料說﹐老忠實客棧築於一九零零年左右,是現存全球最大的木建客棧(有說是全球最大的木建建築物),也是美國境內少數的殘餘的木建客棧之一。客棧裡面全是木柱﹐看起來非常古色古香。 客棧雖然舊﹐但維持得很整潔的呀~


譚細佬拍我們的:

老忠實噴泉

這天我們終於來到黃石公園最出名的Old Faithful噴泉了。為甚麼叫Old Faithful? 因為它是公園內最可靠的噴泉﹐每天都會在特定的時段爆發﹐永不欺場。

我們這天來到剛好還有20分鐘噴泉便要爆發﹐不用等太久﹐但在烈日下暴曬20分鐘原來也是很痛苦的一件事...

It hurts so good



As soon as I started watching the HBO series True Blood Season 1 Episode 1, it has become my newest obsession immediately. It IS SOOOOO GOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO GOOD that I burnt through the entire Season 1 (12 episodes) in one night~ hohohoho~

So... True Blood is about a world with vampires and shapeshifters and demons. (No wonder I love it!) Ever since a synthetic blood called "Tru Blood" was invented, vampires can now freely live among humans. The main character is Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress who's in love with a vampire named Bill Compton.

ok.. what I loooove about this series. The HOT guys! YES!! Bill, Eric (ESPECIALLY ERIC with the haircut.. HOT!!!!!), Jason(he's annoying but he kinda redeemed himself in the last episode), Godric(LOVE HIM), and even Hoyt(oh sweet sweet Hoyt....). The never ending hotness level is just unbearable. Yes, it's HBO so the sex is a bit too much (especially horndog Jason's sex, I just don't need to see it k? It's disgusting!), but I can tolerate it cuz the rest of the storylines are just too good. I love it that they show us Bill and Eric and Sam's back story from time to time(poor poor Sam....can't the guy ever catch a break?), and OH OH OH, Lafayette is awesome too!

What I HATE about this series. The blood and the dead body parts, I can handle. But Tara and devil!Egg eating that damn souffle? GROSS! That has gotta be the grossest moment of the show for me. In fact everytime when Tara goes on the screen is snooze-ville for me. Can she die soon? Oh and Maryann, please go back to hell. The whole orgy scene was disturbing and stupid, booo~

Be warn, this series is funny, suspenseful, gory, sexy and incredibly addictive. Now I've even started to read the books becuz of it. arrrrgh~ Can't wait for the next episode!!!!!

p.s. hate hate HATE how they call Sookie "Suh-kie" on the show ( I know... it's the Southern accent, but it still blows!), everytime I hear Bill say "Suh-kie is mineeee...", I just wanna claw his eyes out! >_<

Julie and Julia

Went to watch Julie and Julia today, and it's as wonderful as I imagined it.

The movie is based on two true stories. Amy Adams played New York wannabe writer Julie Powell, who started a blog documenting her vow to cook all the way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, 524 recipes in 365 days. And while she writes through her cooking, we also get to see Julia Child's (played by Meryl Streep)life back in the days before she got famous.

As the movie goes on, we get a glimpse of Julie and Julia's lives, and I gotta say it comes with unexpected laughs and tears. Julia's journey to become a cook is so hilarious, yet her struggles with other things in life (such as wanting a child and wanting to publish her book) is so heartfelt, that it kept me completely hooked the entire time. With Julie's story line, I connected more with her life of blogging. it's so funny to see how she gets SO excited when someone comments on her blog, or when a reader sends her a nice gift. It's great to see the movie points out that writing a blog is about boosting one's self esteem, why of course it is! Don't we all just love to talk about ourselves? hahaha~

Meryl Streep plays a dead-on Julia Child, and Amy Adams is as lovely as always. It is always such a treat to see them in any movie. So if you're in the mood for a light and funny film, this one is right on.

p.s. Julie's blog "The Julie/Julia project" as seen in the movie can be found here. It's quite an interesting read after you've watched the movie. :)

The Granary

終於要寫到我們這次旅行吃得最豪的一餐了。餐廳是在Jackson Hole的山上﹐叫The Granary。我們一來到已經嘩嘩聲﹐嘩﹐好美! 在山上的一座小小木屋﹐看到一望無際的四周草原和山脈﹐而且剛好又是黃昏﹐好像置身於童話世界般﹐真的好漂亮啊。

我們除了點普通的牛扒﹐魚和豬扒外﹐也點了比較特別的鹿肉和野牛肉。這裡的食物都很有水準﹐不過當然價錢也不便宜。可是我們這麼遠來到﹐有一餐吃好一點也是應該的啦﹐嘻~

Grand Canyon

另一樣我去黃石前不知道的是﹐原來黃石也有個大峽谷。 雖然沒有真的大峽谷那麼大﹐但從高處望下去時也覺得很宏偉啊~ (不過當然﹐又是要行山.... ~_~)

嬌嬌俏俏女巫

找到了!!!!

好正呀呀呀呀呀呀呀~~~~~~ ((大心心))

行~山~~

在黃石公園做得最多的事...當然是行山啦。要看到最美的風景﹐常常要行上行落﹐好累人的啊。


看我和少爺行到快要斷氣的情形:

wooo! animals!

另外在公園內也是很多的就是野生動物。有野牛﹐鹿﹐黑熊﹐野狼﹐還有各種小動物。每次看到一大群遊客把車停在路中心下車拍照時﹐我們就知道有動物出現了!


看譚細佬拍的"money shot"﹐呵呵呵:

溫泉

真糟糕﹐我的黃石公園遊記要爛尾了嗎? :( 最近實在太心散﹐一直拖到現在...其實我已不大記得旅程上發生了甚麼事情了﹐唉~~

我只記得...在黃石公園最多的是溫泉。這邊的溫泉很多很多﹐有些會臭得很﹐有些卻一點味道也沒有。有的泉水是清澈的藍綠色﹐有的卻像是污濁的泥巴。
