I spent a good 6 - 7 hours at State Library with Jason and Andy. It's probably gonna become a weekly thing now. Every Wedensday at State, the three of us are gonna study and eat in the city. D:
This is what I had for lunch at OldTown. I can't remember the name to it, but I know what it's called in Vietnamese. I'm not gonna write that down either.
Jason with his Wonton Noodle Soup with BBQ Pork. ;D
As you can see, I'm clearly a hard worker. :O
Andy doing his homework. Oh and Jason's really big eraser is also there, haha.
Manifest last year - Our Death Note group! D:
I wonder if that Andy Lau figurine would be at Manifest...
Last year when I went to Japan with my school, I almost lost two incrediblly important things: my JR Pass (which was basically the pass that gets me on every public transport and was exclusive to visitors/tourists) and my passport. Thank god I was with people who looked out for me cause I don't know what the fuck I would've done had I been there all on my own. @____@
4. After watching one of my favourite film-makers, Quentin Tarintino, discuss about his 20 favourite movies since 1992 (this was the year HE became a director) I decided to investigate by buying one of the movies he mentioned. Today, I bought a copy of M Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable.
5. Avatar Day is upon us. Probably one of the most hyped and talked about movies this year is James Cameron's Avatar. It's a movie that's been 14 years in the making I believe, with the last 4 years spent in production hell (pre and post). Avatar Day, as it as been dubbed, is the day that we finally get to see footage from Avatar in trailer form. I'm not sure if this applies to all screens around the world (hopefully it is) but I can't help but feel majorly excited. James Cameron hasn't released a feature film since Titanic so this will be pretty epic. For those who aren't familar with his name, you probably have already seen his movies. He's direted Aliens, The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day and True Lies. He's the guy that created the fucking Terminator and launched Jessica Alba's career by letting her star in Dark Angel.
The story’s protagonist, Jake Sully, is a former Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. In order to participate in the Avatar program, which will give him a healthy body, Jake agrees to travel to Pandora, a lush rainforest environment filled with incredible life forms – some beautiful, many terrifying. Pandora is also the home to the Na’vi, a humanoid race that lives at what humans would consider to be a primitive level, but are actually much more evolutionarily advanced than humans. Ten feet tall, with tails and blue skin that sparkles, the Na’vi live harmoniously within their unspoiled world. But as humans encroach on Pandora in search of valuable minerals, the Na’vi’s very existence is threatened – and their warrior abilities unleashed.
Jake has unwittingly been recruited to become part of this encroachment. Since humans are unable to breathe the air on Pandora, they have created genetically-bred human-Na’vi hybrids known as Avatars. The Avatars are living, breathing bodies in the real world, controlled by a human driver through a technology that links the driver’s mind to the Avatar body. On Pandora, through his Avatar body, Jake can be whole once again. Moreover, he falls in love with a young Na’vi woman, Neytiri, whose beauty is matched by her ferocity in battle.
As Jake slides deeper into becoming one of her clan, he finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth, and the Na’vi – forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of an entire world.
Today, my "best friend" invited me to drink with her and a couple other friends. She told me to "just bring a few bucks for beer". When I got there, no one else had brought money, including her. They only invited me because I'm the only one with a job. FML
