Paris, I Love You

I’ve been itching to write the whole weekend. But I had no internet access. In fact on Friday when I woke up, the connection had simply died on me. No matter how many times I renewed my ip address or restarted my computer (which is usually my last resort and Always work), alas the internet was nada.

So today, at long last I get to post again. And *gasp*, Ah Kie got a new template for his blog! No fair, I’m still customizing my one which is taking forever and he did his in one day.

My weekend was awesome. Wanted to watch Jumper, however the tickets were sold out. So I settled for a French movie instead, Paris, je t’aime (Translation: Paris, I Love You). It was a completely different movie unlike anything I have watched before. There is no story line, the movie is made up of a compilation of love stories all taking place in Paris, the city of love. And unlike Love Actually where the stories or characters are somehow interconnected, it is not the case here, each story is stand alone. The love stories are pretty random, my favourites are the blind man who falls in love with an actress (played by Natalie Portman), a mother who lost her child, a guy who falls in love with a woman he meets at a car park and he has been looking for her ever since. When he finally meets her, he passes away in her arms. The weirdest one is about a young man (Elijah Wood plays the young man) who sees a vampire killing an old man, attracts her with his blood, gets turned into a Dracula, hugs the vampire and eventually bites her to death.

I have also learnt that sleeping at 7am in the morning (very early indeed…hehe) is a sure way to screw up your sleeping habits. I woke up at 5pm and my first meal of the day was dinner. Well, since I do believe in trying everything at least once, I can check “Sleep at odd hours” off my list :).

How did your weekend go?
