me before you by jojo moyes is soooo popular. i was very curious about the story.

of course this is a good book, but not my type of story. i put down the book many times but keep reading it anyway.

and i just found out it’s already turned into a movie. i want want want to watch it!
here’s the trailer:


remember this book?

it was published almost 10 years ago. we got a few offers to turned this book into movie but couldn’t find the one who could afford our term and condition.

and finally now we found it! this book will be turned into a movie.yay!

just wait. and be patient :D you’ll meet yusuf, retno, francis and farah in different form.

My friends on the mainland think just because I live in Hawaii, I live in paradise. Like a permanent vacation. We’re all just out here sipping Mai Tais, shaking our hips, and catching waves. Are they insane?

The Descendants

when i lived in bali. some people think like this too.

i took jingga to watch cinderella last week. she wasn’t too crazy about the movie, but loooooove the short movie before it: frozen fever. and as an adult, i love it too :) it’s like meeting some old friends.

we met elsa, anna, kristoff and olaf again. they were celebrating anna’s birthday. but something was happening.

I finally figured it out. It’s like when they realized it was gonna be too expensive to actually build cyborgs and robots. I mean, the costs of that were impossible. They decided to just let humans turn themselves into robots. That’s what’s going on right now. I mean, why not? They’re billions of us just laying around, not really doing anything. We don’t cost anything. We’re even pretty good at self-maintenance and reproducing constantly. And as it turns out, we’re already biologically programmed for our little cyborg upgrades. I read this thing the other day about how When you hear that ding on your inbox, you get like a dopamine rush in your brain. It’s like we’re being chemically rewarded for allowing ourselves to be brainwashed. How evil is that?


finally watch gone girl the movie.

so many excellent review about this movie because of its twist story. but i read the book, so i wasn’t too surprise. the book was awesome and the movie is not bad either. and of course like a movie from a book, it lost some details.

i didn’t imagine someone like ben affleck to play as nick dunn, but he was good.

i read the book of thief about 2 years ago when i still have my weekly trip to singapore. it was a good book and like other good books, it leaves a deep feeling after reading it.

last week, i had a chance watching the movie of it. and it was not bad at all. capturing most things in the book. i like the girl who played as liesel and the little boy as rudi. it wasn’t as i imagined when reading the book. but they looked what it should be in the movie.

of course i wanted to watch the grand budapest hotel. budapest is one of the city i used to live.

but the movie has nothing to do with the city but it has the style. it’s quite interesting, with fictional setting and weird and magical things happening here and there. i didn’t regret watching this.


i’m introducing hayao miyazaki to jingga, starting with my neighbor totoro.

i haven’t show her the full movie. just a view clips from youtube. but so far she was interested. i’ll show her more and more. and one day, we’ll have studio ghibli’s movies night.

and this is one of my favorite scene.

last week, we took jingga to see a movie for the first time. the movie was monsters university.

at first we were worry jingga would be afraid of the dark and got bored. but she stayed for the whole movie! she was quite amazed with the big screen and the sound. she refused to eat but drink once a while. she moved seat a few times but generally she was ok.

so when is our next movie date?

“Disney has just released the six-minute short on YouTube. The beautiful black-and-white film follows a young man in his fruitless attempts to get the attention of a young lady he encounters on the train, and combines hand-drawn animation with CG for a unique and charming visual style. Paperman may be brief, but it manages to evoke more emotion in just a few minutes than most feature length movies do in two hours and it does so barely uttering a single word.” by Andrew Webster

there were time when i watch several movies in a week. but it’s the past. now, time for watching movies is such a luxury.

but finally i had time after jingga asleep and the work was not overloaded. i watched 2 movies: argo and separation. i need 2 days to finish each movie. i’ve been wanting to watch them because of the good reviews. accidentally, both movie is set in iran.

just found out a few days ago, there’s another sequel of before sunrise and before sunset. the title is before midnight. after vienna and paris,  they will meet again in greece.

i have have have to watch this. i always watch the sequel not long after it was released and waited for years after. the feeling is different if you watch something you like after waiting that long.


after about 2 years i finally went to cinema again. the movie was life of pi.

when i read the book years ago, i didn’t think it will turned into a movie. too hard. but it did. maybe because i haven’t been to a movie for a long time or just the 3D effect, i felt the movies was awesome. less boring than the book. and i like the images of the zoo at the beginning of the movie.

and this richard parker character is the main thing in the movie. it kept pi alive and so is the movie.

i was still living in bali when i read life of pi. even i think some part of the book is desperately boring,  i still categorize the book as one of the memorable one especially because of its unique story.

and finally it’s turned into a movie!
