It’s Breaking Me!

“Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” is playing on the Cinema now all over the world, and I haven’t seen it. Huhuhu! I miss my movie partner, Mojo! Where art though? Last 2008, when Twilight was released, I watched it with Hubby and a couple of friends. Of course, at the end of the movie, it was only I who enjoyed it. “New Moon” and “Eclipse” was a bonded contract with Mojo and Adnan. Oh dear, I miss those guys. I’m sure they’ve seen the movie. I guess, I just have to wait.

My “Pride & Prejudice”

I’ve watched it for more than 10x already (in just 1 week). And I have it transferred on my iPhone as well for back-up. I’m so in love with their story, that I even downloaded tons of photos from the movie. Recently found out that there was even a different ending with the US version, and so I downloaded it as well. Made me love the story more.

I’m currently reading the book. Good thing that Jane Austen’s novel over iBooks Library are all free. I have “Sense & Sensibility” too. But I love this one more. I thought it will have a sad ending that’s why I had doubts watching the movie. But after reading reviews about it, I decided to watch it, and no doubt it’s one of the best romantic movies ever. Now I’m in search of the 1995 TV series. Yup, so addicted to it.

Below is a line from Mr. Darcy at the meadow for his 2nd proposal *sigh…

Mr. Darcy: You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.

Something Borrowed

Most of you probably saw the movie “Something Borrowed” which is based on the novel written by Emily Giffin. I’ve read the book, thanks to ate Kaje for the recommendation. While watching, I noticed the shoes that Rachel was wearing when Darcy was confessing to her about her affair with Marcus and her pregnancy.

Yipee! We have the same shoes. Actually, this was from Aldo – one of my favorite shoes. It’s comfortable, and it was on sale when I bought it too.

Another thing that I noticed from the said movie was this. Notice something blue from this picture?

Something Borrowed

Yeah, that’s “Something Blue” alright. The sequel to this movie. I can’t wait for it. Because I love Ethan’s character.

“If You Could See Me Now”

I’m reading this right now. Thanks to dear friend Suzanne for the books to read over my iPhone. I can’t wait to finish it since I was able to read now the summary.

If You Could See Me Now

Plot summary

Trapped in a stifling, small town in Ireland, Elizabeth Egan had always been known as a serious woman, never laughing at jokes or taking joys from the simplest pleasure of life. This is due to the effect of being abandoned by her free-spirited mother when she was young and was forced to grow up to babysit her sister, Saoirse.

Taking advantage of the obliged responsibilities instilled in Elizabeth, Saoirse continued to lead life with abandonment leaving Elizabeth to be stuck with Luke, Saoirse’s son.

At the age of six, Luke claims to have a friend named Ivan who Elizabeth cannot see. Though at first she is exasperated with this imaginary friend, she starts playing along with Luke when she learns that imaginary friends will only last about 3 months.

Though invisible to most, Ivan is real. Only Luke and Saoirse can see him, though he comes to realize that Elizabeth can feel his presence. Knowing that only people who are in real need of a friend are able to see him, he follows Elizabeth around. When, suddenly, she is able to see him, Ivan is delighted, but disappointed just as quickly when she thinks him to be the father of one of Luke’s friends. A friendship which soon turns into romance blossoms between them.

Ivan’s boss, Opal, sees his love for Elizabeth and tells him her own sad tale. She tells him that however much he wishes to be with Elizabeth a time will come when she will no longer be able to see him and will eventually age while he would remain young. However, Ivan is too much in love with Elizabeth and refuses to listen.

One day, when Elizabeth is hosting a party, she is no longer able to see Ivan and he realizes it is time to move on to a new friend. Ivan visits Elizabeth in a dream telling her that he was glad he met her and etc. A few days later, Elizabeth realizes that he was Luke’s ‘imaginary’ friend.

They went their separate ways, both changed after the experience. Elizabeth is more relaxed and Ivan admits that Elizabeth is something that is better than anything else.

iBooks Overload

I would like to thank a dear friend Suzanne for hoarding me tons of books tonight. Me and the rest of my friends over Twitter has been sharing books online. Thank God for the technology. I’m starting with Emily Giffin’s “Something Borrowed” and “Something Blue”. Then she recommend me to read Cecilia Ahern’s books. Oh my oh my. I can’t wait to finish the first 2 books then.

First I need to read some reviews about social security disability. There are some evaluations needed to read about. I’m helping a friend to check it out.

Something Borrowed & Blue

Emily Giffin

Thanks to fellow Twitter Mommy Kaje for lending me these e-books. I’m currently reading “Something Borrowed” right now using my iPhone. I’m totally blind after reading a few pages but I don’t care. I love the trailer of the movie so I’m sure I’ll love the book too. Just what happen to me with “Twilight Saga” 2 years ago. Got addicted to it, that I have to make a reservation for each part. Virgin Megastore was kind enough to call back every time the book is available.

I don’t read much, but once a book is recommended, curiosity strikes. Sometimes the book is much better than the movie itself. Of course because in the movie, apparently they have to cut certain scenes to make the movie length shorter. So I find the book more detailed.

I can’t wait to finish the first edition of Emily Giffin’s collection. To watch the movie? I’m not sure if I can. That’s why for now, let’s all read on.
