I recently watched a movie called “P.S. I Love You” and would like to share it with you (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0431308/). The movie scene started with a couple fighting for some stupid issues. Not a typical attractive opening but the director did an excellent job by selecting the beautiful couple, starred by Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler. Out of curiosity, I carried on with the flow of the movie and had not left the chair since. The storyline could not be more simple but it was absolutely hilarious, emotional but yet not too dramatic. This is the movie with every element I love and possibly the best movie I have watched in this year so far. Did I cry watching the movie? Nay.... Boys Don't Cry...hehe
The movie and book. Movie is the adaption of book, shorter and tighter pace.
The movie was actually written based on a novel with same name. I am reading it now. The feeling of reading is totally ‘sky-and-ground’ different. Don’t get me wrong, it is a very good book. The book has more depth and more elaboration, equally as impressive as the movie but I felt that the book will be more suitable for the ladies, too much tears and drama.
I ever wonder if there is a guidebook to find a true soulmate. I read this book before “Men Are from Mars and Woman Are from Venus”. Closed to the purpose but some of my female friends do not agree. The book suggested that soulmate is always an extreme version in some way of yourself. If you are extrovert, your soulmate is probably introvert and so on. Hmm…. That even puzzle me more because I am an extreme entity in both! I like clubbing and I like reading. I like arts and I also love engineering. I like complicated puzzles but also enjoy simple brainless game. I like swimming and sports but I also prefer luxurious treatment. I am talkative and I like to keep silence. I like shopping and I hate shopping…. The list can go on and on. Does it mean that I will not have my soulmate? Or my soulmate is my similar type? I am certainly a very confused person now.
There is one shot in the movie, Denise told her friends, “ Your soulmate must be somewhere around the corner or he/she is just stucked with the wrong person.” How true! And I love the saying. For the past years, I have seen many couples. Some of them are so lucky that they found ‘the one’ and some of them just got so lost in the process. Although I hate wedding invitation as much as I love it (Hate it because need to prepare big Ang-pow, Love because it is time for my wedding photography practice), I always share their palpable joy. They are such lucky bastards, haha… mind my language. Relationship is probably 100 times harder than getting a PhD. Some people get it right once without slightest effort, some people never get it no matter how hard they try, pretty unfair… C'est la vie! My soulmate is somewhere with wrong person or she already appeared but, somehow, I have just stupidly overlooked?
Enough for one day sharing. Why I blog this? This is non-negotiable secret, so don’t bother to ask me. But what I can tell is – my big 30th is hitting me soon. Whoa… that is something freak me out even to just think about it. So, friends, please remember to console me with piles of gifts during my big 30th . I prefer designer watch, cash is only marginally accepted…. Haha… I heard someone cursing.
