Movie Review: Hello Stranger

If you have not caught this in Singapore, please do. I think the run will be ending soon.

This Thai rom-com is filmed and set largely in Korea and one sees the most amazing touristy spots (as well as those locations made famous by the drama serials, like the Coffee Prince, and Winter Sonata) in the course of the movie.

Two heart-broken people meet in the city of Seoul and they travel together, forging a close bond after just a few days. They realise that they have fallen in love with each other and start dating, only for the plot to take a to find out more. I'm not going to spoil the movie for you!!

I laughed till my belly hurt. So if you like to laugh, or if you like the feeling of your belly hurting, hurry to the cinemas now. The movie is only shown at Golden Village cinemas!

Who Is Willow Smith?

"I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my back and forth..." is the catchy refrain from Willow Smith's first single "Whip My Hair".

She's only 10 (born in 2000) and is one of the youngest solo recording artistes around.

As I was watching her music video, I couldn't help but think, she's so un-child-like. Her level of confidence in front of the camera is amazing. And also, that tiny tinge of doubt, as to whether this would be good for her, to be in the limelight so early on. But, one has to give the Smiths (Willow is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith) the benefit of the doubt, as they seem to be rather good parents, not like say, the father of Lindsay Lohan.

Anywho, just watch and enjoy the hair-raising antics of Little Miss Willow.

Am I Crazy?!

for wanting to buy a pair of earrings that would set me back by $150?

The pair in question? The 1960 tribal earrings I saw in the stand-alone shop outside Mandarin Gallery.

They are absolutely gorgeous with a very unique stud-cum-clip-on backing which I LOVE!!!!

The boyfriend forbade me to buy it. But how to resist the call of this charmingly be-yoo-ti-full pair!! :(

I am dejected.
