The Tourist: Loving the Dresses


The trip to watch The Tourist was mostly motivated by Johnny Depp. Another motivation would be the collaboration between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie - I'd like to see the outcome when these two stars meet in one movie. Well, even with these two stars The Tourist was not one of great movie for 2011.

Elise Ward is the only thing that saves The Tourist from being rated as a yawn-movie. I have no expectation for this movie (cause the idea of Depp and Jolie doesn't sound that captivating), but as soon as Elise Ward made her first appearance on the screen, I totally forgot about Depp. Hahaha. Angelina Jolie portrayed an elegant lady very well. I am so glad. She have the charisma that really makes people turn and look at her - not just as a character in a movie but in reality. Johnny Depp on the other hand did not make it to the surface. He is just another character in a movie, falling in love with the lady. [I couldn't believe I said this about Johnny Depp...]

Another thing that saves this movie would be Elise's wardrobe. Oh gosh, I really love the dresses! They were perfect - a perfect distraction too I must say. My favorite would be Elise's firs dress - an ivory sheath accented with a cashmere wrap and fine suede gloves. I love everything about it; from the hair to the shoes. Inspired by classic film noir glamour, the wardrobe highlighted Elise's persona.

I wish I could have the dresses!

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..."
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…
