There is nothing I like more than being indoor during a rainy day with a steaming hot (and good) cuppa coffee, curled up on my comfy sofa and reading a good book. Books have been part of my life for as long as 20 years or so now, ever since I was introduced to it by my parents at the tender age of 5. Since then, I have never stopped reading and needless to say the library is one of my most favourite places in the world. If you happen to be out with me and are worried of me getting bored, just bring me to the nearest library and I can assure you I can spend the whole day there…
So recently I borrowed the following four books but I am half done with the first one (blame it on my piling assignments that I couldn’t read as much as I want to). However thought I would introduce them here in case you have read them before and would like to tell me how you feel about each one…I always appreciate a honest book review I will also be doing a review on some noteworthy ones once I have finished reading them.
First book is “How Starbucks SavedÂ My Life: A Son of Priviledge Learns to Live Like Everyone Else“.
Second book is “The Choice” by Nicholas Sparks. This is the book that is half-read by me now, and normally I am not too crazy about his works because it Cheap Levitra Super Active+ is too predictable and cloyingly sweet, but this one seems to contain some really good banter between the two lead characters. I admire an author who can manage the dialogues between the characters well, and this one is done so well until you could feel the chemistry between the guy and girl in the story.
Third book is “Lucky” by Alice Sebold. I have read her first book as well as her most recent one, Almost Moon. I like her first book but am not too crazy about her latest one, in fact I only got to around a quarter of it before I gave up. I always feel disappointed when I am not able to finish up a book. But this book does seem promising.
Last book is more of a non-fiction one. I seldom picked up non-fiction book but the buy cheap kamagra title of this one captured my eyes when I was browsing through the shelves today.Thought it would be useful for me and hubby, especially since we are now planning our finances for our own home sweet home and the banquet. Will share the wisdom once I have finished this book to benefit the other newlyweds out there
Anyway, books aside, I have not touched any this weekend (except for today of course when I was at the library) because finally I am done with all my assignments and thought it is time for me to relax! And since last weekend coincided with the Halloween celebration, I decided to rent a few horror movies to watch together with my friends. Titles of movies are Rule #1 and Exorcism of Emily Rose.
The first movie was quite a let down, in yours truly’s opinion. Maybe because of the expectation that I built up to it after reading a few reviews about this movie online. I had expected something close to the quality of The Eye or Dark Waters, two Asian horror movies which really gripped me at the time I watched them and sent me to the edge of my seat. But I thought this movie just included some gory graphics from time to time and provided some loud music, the must-haves in almost all horror movies that are springing out like mushroom after rain recently. The storyline is so-so, can’t really identify with it.
We started on buy propecia online cheap pharmacy the second movie almost as soon as the first one was finished…IMHO, second movie was better. Although it is more like a court case rather than a true-blue horror flick, it did make me symphatise with the lead actress inside the show. Not to mention that it is actually based on a true story. It is about a young girl who was possessed by 6 demons and a priest who tried to exorcise them out of her, but failed and was accused of causing the girl’s death instead. Quite a controversial film that would get you thinking if possession is really possible.
And am I glad that my roommate is in my room tonight when I got back, I don’t think I will take to sleeping alone in my dorm room well buy cheap cialis after this movie
Another thing I notice is that when you watched horror shows with a large group of people, it tends to be less scary compared to watching it by yourself (I will never do that) or with a small group, say 2 to 3 people. Sometimes the comment made by the people around you during the show might turn the horror movie into a comedy instead lolz.
Oh, before I go, would like to recommend to you a restaurant which we went to for dinner on Saturday. It is a thematic restaurant where everything inside, from the decor to the menu, are based on martial arts. The food is not bad, though the serving was a bit too small for the price. I would give it props for the ambience and atmosphere though. Most recommended if you are going with people who are crazy about martial arts or maybe the older generation.
Alert: Lots of photos below!
This is supposedly one of their popular dishes-but to me it tasted like siew mais with glutinous rice outside. Since I am a fan of siew mais, so I did enjoy this dish
Took this picture of how it looks like from the outdoor but there was another group so they were captured inside as well. If you are cracking your head on where to bring your folks for weekend lunch/dinner, you can consider heading over to this restaurant at Temple Street.
That’s all for this entry, it has been a long one!
