I realised that both my group members had S/Ued French, and that lots of my classmates have S/Ued as well, which was quite surprising to me. Ah well, I'd better mug then. I haven't been studying consciously - I just take my French notes out to read when I'm on the MRT going for French. And I only read for about 10 mins, cos it makes me sleepy and I'll nap for the rest of the long journey.
So after that, I had dinner at Cafe Cartel with my sisters and we went to watch The Beauty of Beethoven. The programme was thus:
- The Creatures of Prometheus: Overture, Op. 43
- Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61
- Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92
Anyway, once the Symphony No. 7 in A Major started, my sister was like, "Doesn't this sound familiar?" It was the music from Nodame Cantabile! Hahaha! I almost burst out laughing. It was interesting listening to the difference. After the concert, we had a browse around Marina Square which was open for late night shopping. Topshop has black fishnets at $9 and maroon leggings at $13!! My mom likes fishnets, my sis thinks they're trashy. Please help me make up my mind?
(The funniest part was when Kyung-Jin told Myungwoo about the legend of why people join pinkies to make a promise. There was a princess who had many suitors, so in order to find The One, she stuck out a finger behind her back and made them guess which it was. The 1st guy stuck out his thumb, the 2nd guy stuck out his index finger, the 3rd guy was met with a gasp and a slap from the princess [HAHAHA!!!], the 4th guy stuck out his ring finger and of course the last guy got it right with his pinky.)
Suffice to say, I was totally stoned on Saturday morning. I had to break my coffee fast, and I was quite broke, so Starbucks was out of the question. There's this little Each-a-Cup outlet at Parkway, and it's not bad, so when the maid in front of me ordered an Oreo Coffee, I decided to order one too! And it's totally yummy for a $2.40 drink. I'm totally craving it now! I'm quite glad to have found a cheaper coffee option. XD
Here's a video of the slapping dare:
The storyline seems nice and all and during the childhood scenes, it's stylistically similar to Amelie. Thing is, Amelie's a happy movie while Jeux d'enfants has dark undertones. The dares seem harmless at first but then you realise they are seriously creepy, and the movie ends with the couple reunited happily, oblivious to the fact that they're being buried alive in wet concrete. And so they become immured in a slab of concrete for eternity. Disturbing, no? The part about unrequited love might elicit sympathy at first, but after seeing how their dares are selfish and juvenile and hurtful to the other party, you won't feel so sympathetic anymore.
I didn't particularly enjoy it because I don't appreciate being left feeling deeply disturbed after a movie, but it is interesting, so do watch it if you get a chance. I know it screened at the Alliance Francaise recently, but I couldn't find anyone to go with me.
Anyway, I want to watch the Sex and the City movie!!! (:
