My Oh My, Miss Anne Hathaway!

If anyone still thinks The Dark Knight Rises is just another sell-out Hollywood franchise for the masses, still feels that the movie trilogy does no justice to the comic series and still refuses to handover some benjamins to the studios executives' fat wallets, please have that person take a good look at the above picture. I'd even encourage him/her to scrutinize the picture to the last detail.

And if you happen to the that person, you cannot be more wrong than hoping to find weapons of mass destruction (read: oil) in Iraq. The Dark Knight Rises is about actors and actresses pouring their heart, body, soul and sweat into perfecting their craft and making sure that you are entertained for a good 165 min. Now, go watch the movie and ogle at Anne's bounty bountiful acting skills. And you know exactly what I mean.

Oh yes, the cat will get your tongue too. ;)

Writings from Africa

Chewy sent a postcard from Tanzania and while it had arrived a few days ago, I only saw it being put up on our fridge that has one too many magnets from the family's travel escapades.

Happy Birthday to Chewy

Chewy, I'm so happy you are living up your dream and in farfaraway land now! I'm sure the journey has been fun, fulfilling and frustrating. :)

Not happy about you being with cute lions daily without me though.

Happy birthday on this special day and I miss you very dearly!

Travel safe and safe travels. See you very soon~

xoxo, Pi

The Lying Game

The lies one would tell... Sigh.
And get caught while at it.... Even bigger sigh

Have you watched Ringer?

I Used To

I used to be overly-excited about writing my travel tales and spilling it all to the unbeknownst stranger who'd have the bad luck (well, life's a box of chocolate) of sitting next/near/behind/in front of/basically within 50 metres of me, and the even worse luck of having to hear inconsequential and non-sequitur tales of my search for penguins, ferris wheels, McDonald's, ballet and the sorts in the far corners of the globe. I mean, whether a place has penguins is seriously one of the factors I take into consideration when I pick a place to visit.

But now, I take off without a bleep on the radar, I go on ferris wheels/foiled attempts to steal penguins/indulge in McDonald's/admire graceful ballet dancers without a bleep on the radar, I step into the different offices to work during the week without a bleep on the radar, I arrive back in Singapore without a bleep on the radar. A usual 9-day trip would go past and it's back to normalcy in sunny ol' Singapore.

Is it my mojo for travelling or writing that I've seem to have lost recently? I mean, do you even know about my trip to Taiwan for its glorious food and gorgeous view from my office at Taipei 101? Or the crazy 26-hour journey to UAE for Madonna's concert?

Update: I have finally written about the trips to Taiwan and UAE! And I use the word "written" very loosely. Haha.

Taipei 101. Ferris Wheel. Night Markets. Street food. Google Office. Jiufen. Typhoon scare. Dancing @ Room 18. Loved and lost.

All just part and parcel of my first visit to Taiwan.
