電影院

好久沒進電影院看戲。我的電影多是在飛機上看的。

最近忽然進電影院三次。第一次是看Bumblebee, 跟弟弟妹妹和一群近親在柔佛看。最喜歡是戲裡常播八十年代的歌曲。現在想起,上次跟弟妹一起看戲是我們童年時。當年戲票八毛錢,我們一個星期最少看一次電影。轉眼,我們都白頭。

第二次是為了馮偉衷看了最佳伙扮。蠻不錯的一部戲。哭了,因為劇情與現實都與生死有關。可惜現實比電影殘酷。心酸,年紀輕輕就走了。

第三次是為了周星馳。好多人嫌他老了。人人都年輕過,但不是人人都可變老。看著群眾演員被人忽視,就覺得自己也是職場上的甘草演員,必要,但不被重視。所以,感動。

就算永遠沒有出頭天,但活著就好。

新喜劇之王

看了,感動了。

不管別人怎麼說,在我心裡,周星馳永遠是最好的。如夢多少有他的過去吧!一個常常以草根為主角的,我不相信是壞人。

很喜歡分分鐘需要你的環節。

Misc

Another month just passed by ….

Health wise, leg wasn’t as painful before but hand is getting painful from typing. Overworked burnout Asian.

My leg wasn’t painful, probably because I didn’t walk as much before. Barely hit 10,000 steps on most days. Partly busy, partly avoiding the sun.

Gaining weight because of inactivity and binged eating.

Still playing Pokemon but it is feeling like tasks rather than hobby. Barely touch piano tiles nowadays.

Spent $$$ on online shopping. But, so far, I am liking and using the stuff that I bought. Also, been buying many products to protect face such as moisturiser, mist, screen protectors.

Managed to read two books despite being busy.

Also, stepped into the cinema for the first time this year to watch Crazy Rich Asian. The best part of the movie is the first 5 minuets .

Have an extremely short vacation doing nothing.

  • Next month, need to eat healthily, sleep more and exercise more. Taking care of myself instead of pouring myself into never ending work.
  • Eat,Play,Work

    Didn’t update this blog for more than a month.

    How I spent my May :

    Been working extremely hard. Busy does not equal to productivity. So much things are not up to my control.

    Bringing parents for medical checkups.

    Usually eat alone with low expectations of food. But happy that do have gatherings with old friends, new colleagues and family members.

    Still playing Pokémon. Been going many places just to spin new pokestops just for the extra points. Been catching and raiding to catch shinies with no success. Been watching concerts. Been overseas for holidays and staycation with family. Walk too much for this game.

    Binged watch 愛。回家.

    Read a few books, including Invoices which is about invoice for emotions.

    Played in the pools although I can’t swim.

    Cycled for two hours. Tiring but happy.

    Feb

    不知不覺就過了二月立春,過了人生的第x的十年。

    比別人慢了好幾年,才看完巾幗梟雄。雖然站在四奶奶與柴九這邊,但實在覺得謝雪心把大奶奶演得絲絲入扣。謝雪心和熬嘉年的母子實在演得太好了。我老是注意旁邊的綠葉多過主角,就像我愛吃窩邊菜一樣。

    最近老是頭痛,不知怎麼辦。

    Just read an article of a book titled Crazy Rich Asian, written by Kevin Kwan, a descendant of  an OCBC banker.  Background of the story is set in Singapore, about very rich people. The book is a bestseller and is going to be made into a movie. I might borrow the book from the library. Not incline to buy book at the moment, mainly no space.  Besides, I have reservation contributing money if the book portrays a negative image of Singapore. The Singapore I grew up in is a country where most people work for a honest and humble living.  I might be wrong and ended up loving the book. 

     I first heard about Crazy Rich Asian from Ryan Higa’s Twitter asking Asian to audition for roles.  I didn’t pay much attention to it then because I have very little interest in the life of Asian American, filthy rich or dirt poor. In fact, I am put off that people from various ethnic group and various culture of the Asia continent is pigeonholed into a group called Asian in USA. Chinese, Japanese, Korean are different. Philipinos, Indonesian are different. Indian, Sri Lankan, Pakistani are different.  

    Anyway, hope that the book is good and the movie is successful. For a start, I respect that the movie make a stand by not whitewashing the roles.
