Expecting Eclipse

Assalamualaikum,

I do not have proper introduction for this entry. All I have in mind was so typical; "July please come faster" kind of stuff. Though the publicity of the 3rd book -- Eclipse -- not as burning-hot as New Moon, waiting make me claustrophobic! Eclipse is in the air. I already re-reading Eclipse few weeks back, to take into the mood. Ok, I sleep with it too :p

I favor Eclipse out of all four books. This is my book, my bedtime story as I said. I can read it over and over again and I somehow could memorize it well. My first and most favorite quote from Eclipse was: "I’ll be back so soon you won’t have time to miss me. Look after my heart — I’ve left it with you." I am so looking forward to see this note on Bella's pillow, or it could be better if they made it Edward's dialogue. Swoon~

There's not much to expect from this entry as it will only contains my expectations toward the movie and what I'd like to see -- pretty much everything from the book itself! But I' have selected few scenes that I think crucial to be in the movie.

On top of my list is... the proposal scene! [Like you can't guess]
"Isabella Swan? I promise to love you forever — every single day of forever. Will you marry me?". There, that's the sweetest wedding proposal ever. I foresee loud yeses in the cinema hall during the scene, one of them will be me.
*This scene including the pre-proposal conversation. I think the conversation was so cute*

The wedding ring and wedding dress.
The wedding ring is no longer a surprise. The trailers have revealed the best design that most resembled Stephanie's description. It is fine by me -- it looked old enough to be owned by Elizabeth Masen, and pretty. Now left the wedding dress. Oh I can't wait to see it. I purposely prevent my mind from having any idea about the design. I want it to be a real surprise. 10 designs were discussed last years, but that did not ruin anything.

Edward - Jacob argument after Bella broke her hand. [I'm not interested to mention how she broke her hand...]
One of Edward's best moments. For me Edward was so human during the scene. He was just a protective and jealous boy. And I love that Edward sees Bella as perfect even though readers / fans might see the opposite.
"But if you ever bring her back damaged again — and I don’t care whose fault it is; I don’t care if she merely trips, or if a meteor falls out of the sky and hits her in the head — if you return her to me in less than the perfect condition that I left her in, you will be running with three legs. Do you understand that, mongrel?"

Edward's bed. One of the still picture releases last week revealed the golden cover bed. It is golden, ok. But I failed to see the intricate roses and it doesn’t seem to be at the center of the room. Hmm...

Jasper's story.
I am excited to meet the human Jasper. He was a gentleman, a charismatic and influential gentleman. And there's something in his story. All this while everybody thinks Jasper only influence people's feeling, but in this chapter Jasper shares that he can also feel the emotions of people around him. Thus, he was trapped with the final emotions of its prey. That was devastating. And I am so looking forward to see the scene when Jasper first meets Alice. It would be so lovely.

Bella - Edward visiting Renee.
I'd really like to see what Renee saw in between them.
"There’s something… strange about the way you two are together. The way he watches you — it’s so… protective. Like he’s about to throw himself in front of a bullet to save you or something ... The way you move — you orient yourself around him without even thinking about it. When he moves, even a little bit, you adjust your position at the same time. Like magnets… or gravity. You’re like a… satellite, or something."

There.

I have high expectation in Eclipse compare to New Moon [NM was not my favorite, it's too sad...]. But as high as I fly, it would not go off the sky. Novel adaptation can be very disappointing and I don't want to ruin everything.

Oh. And I hope they would cut the Bella-Jacob kissing scene the shortest!

Wassalam.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
