*sigh* ok that's a happy sigh. I was postponing, delaying and ultimately procrastinating to update The REAL CurHat Sue due to work commitments, Abaya Suraya blog updates commitments, or just due to mere laziness. Bad Suraya bad.
When was the last time I update this personal blog of mine? Well I fret to even have a peek at the last date tee hee. Nevertheless I miss updating it. I annoy people by updating my FB status updates frequently and I treat it like a mini-blog. Luckily for others that I do not own a Twitter account =D
So many great, wonderful things happened in my life alhamdulillah. Be it career-wise, love-life, family and social. Been to many places, witnessed so many things but not updated on my blog. Basically the last time I updated about my traveling was to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Well basically after that I visited Bali in April 2010 (Indonesia), Melbourne & Geelong twice in July & November 2010 (Australia), Pattaya in December 2010 (Thailand) and the latest to Padang (Indonesia) on this April of 2011. And of course not to forget roaming up and down of Peninsula Malaysia! And oh yes I am now a chambering student and I finally own an iPhone 4 named Latipah as well as my highly desired MacBook Air named Chobeeb. I'm using it now and I just thank my lucky stars for getting it at a bargain price of RM 3000 only (2 times installment from Abang Sham hehe). Hope I could everything in retrospect in the future.
Oh yes for all the random events in my life, photos snapped but time is my foe. So no updates on my blog. Sadly. However oh yes how this wonderful movie of 500 Days of Summer inspired me? Well, firstly I may say that it's the #1 movie for me for the 1st half 0f 2011. I watched it on TV, Star Movies quite recently. It's out of this world!!!
Ok here's the centrepiece:
Tom is an architect by training, a romantic by nature and a “perfectly adequate” greeting-card writer by trade (“Today you’re a man. Mazel tov on your Bar Mitzvah!”). He meets Summer—the sexy, quirky dream girl who doesn’t believe in love—when she takes a job in his office. This is Day 1 of their 500 days together, and if the set up sounds predictable, veteran music-video director Marc Webb does much to turn this tale on its head. For starters, Webb tells the story out of llinear sequence, with Summer dumping Tom over pancakes in the first ten minutes. The rest of the film reveals how they got to that point, and its aftermath, each segment beginning with the number of the day the couple is on—a delicious clue as to whether what follows will involve awkward courtship, playful flirtation, shower sex or the breaking of common household objects. With a soundtrack that includes the Smiths, Belle and Sebastian and current punks Black Lips, there’s a lot to love here: crisp dialogue, drunken karaoke, a bar fight, ironic voiceover, a split-screen fantasy sequence and a dance number set to Hall and Oates that’s nothing short of glorious. Leads Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel sizzle onscreen, with fine support from Geoffrey Arend and Matthew Gray Gubler as Tom’s well-intentioned, inept-at-love friends and Chloe Moretz as his wise-beyond-her-years sister. 500 Days of Summer is a slickly made anti-romantic comedy that happens to have plenty of romance and lots of comedy.

So yes! It's crazy, it's wild but all draped in the fashion & persona of the 1950s/1960s which was to die for!! And best of all, as highlighted in the centrepiece above, the delivery of this movie was it just skips to the future and flashes back to the past in no particular order, but wonderfully, the viewers GET IT! =D
So yes, to make things short, I am going to just update my blog in no particular order of the dates or events. It could be current or very backdated, updated after the latest event. Well I may not be the director of 500 Days of Summer, but I am the director of my blog, and if you still bother to read my blog, then I thank you. And I hope you love it, just the way I love that fantastic, fantastic, fantastic movie. *standing ovation* =)
Just sharing, the leather and Swarovski crystals bangle my sayang gave me, which I wear everyday without fail. Lost it, found it back, love it to bits and pieces. I can have a 500 days of you anytime. *blush* =)
Have a great day readers! =)
