Back from Kobe

It’s the last day of July.
And I am still in the middle of the tunnel. No light, and running out of fuel.

The plane ride back to Singapore was pretty uneventful, save for one or two moments when the guy sitting beside me tried to start a conversation.
“You from Singapore?” he asked.
“Yes,” I answered, gave him a “I-don’t-wish-to-talk-and-I’m-forcing-a-smile-now-because-I-don’t-want-to-be-rude smile and immediately turned back to my little TV screen.

I just didn’t, well, feel like talking.

Pretty consistent with what I’ve been feeling these days.

Anyway, I watched 3 movies in a row, or perhaps, 2 and 3/4 if a movie.

Date Night was great. Nearly-laugh-out-loud type of comedy. And pretty moving too.
“I’d do it again you know? Us, you, me the kids, all of it. I’d do it again. I’d choose you every time.”

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. I remember suggesting to someone, years years back, that oh maybe we can watch this. I said it with a shrug, a laugh, like it didn’t matter. And he thought I was being my usual sarcastic self, and dismissed the idea, thinking I was just trying to be funny, in a way he found unfunny.
It’s funny, because I really did want to catch it – not because I was trying to be funny, not because of the movie title.. but because I was a girl, and I simply wanted to catch a chick flick.
We didn’t catch it in the end. And all these years, I have never watched it because 1) I don’t watch Channel 5, 2) It’s not so important or so good that I had to buy a  DVD and 3) The movie has never shown up in Kris World until this month.
The movie was enjoyable. Kate Hudson is impossible to dislike!
It is an old saying but new learning each time — You can’t lose what you’ve never had. :)

Back-up Plan. I didn’t enjoy it. Everything seemed to happen too quickly, too furiously. The story was a little similar to Knocked Up, but a stale, unfunny and un-enjoyable version. I just find it difficult to like Jennifer L0pez. Haha.

So yes, 6 hours of chick flicks (Ok, Date Night is more a comedy). Just what I need.

It’s good to be home. :)

(PS: Oh and I felt bad about my hostility later, because after the plane touched down, that same guy immediately stood up and helped carry my stuff out of the overhead compartment when he saw that I couldn’t reach them. Sorry! :P)
