I told myself I'll stay away from Orchard Road during the weekends.
Which is why I'm staying IN doing so many productive, wholesome things... like watching every rerun Starhub throws to my face, surfing for things to do in Singapore which 1) does not cost any/much money and 2) does not involve crowds, avoiding the scream of a full laundry basket and the growling sounds coming from the general direction of my tummy.
Friend are telling me that my cause to look for something interesting to do in Singapore is a lost one, but I'm NOT giving up... yet! There has to be SOMETHING to do besides wrestling with fashion slave zombies in a shopping frenzy along the sidewalks. There has to be!
I'm also trying to figure out what sort of healthy simple foods I can actually make during the weekends so that I won't have to eat out, spend too much money on food.. and use that money to get my "fix" on weeknights. Erm. Just kidding, mum (Say hi to me mum everyone, she's learning how to use the interw3b and one of the first few websites she learned to access was mine. Better hide all those dodgy posts! :P).
But I digress.
I'm actually trying to eat healthier because Oprah was telling everyone that starting 2009 she's going to start losing her weight, exercising and eating right. About time too, she's ballooned up like nobody's business. Got me wondering if she purposely put on all those weight just to make a show about losing it - not bad eh? ANYWAY. Oprah convinced me that I should start taking care of my own eating habits too - since I get sick so often, am turning 29 and a little soft everywhere.
I've also just watched Babe on Star Movies and I still have that stupid grin on my face. That ending always gets me tearing up - Hoggett selamba only standing there.. while the pig walks the sheeps into the pen.. Hoggett closing the pen gate. The silence and then the sudden eruption of cheers. The 100 points. The Corny sun peeking from the clouds shining down on very still-standing, straight-faced Hoggett.... the camera focusing on Babe, then back to Hoggett... and Hoggett saying "That'll do pig. That'll do".
love it love it love it LOVE IT.
Babe has got to be one of my favouritest movies of ALL time.
Nobody make movies like that anymore - heart warming, family friendly, grin inducing, tingly in your toes, the "aww" feeling, the happy sighs.
Can't believe some folks thought to ban this movie because it was "haram".
Stupidity of mankind knows no limits.
I love the movie so much that I'm actually afraid to watch the sequel because you know what sequels DO to a franchise (cue starwars, the marix, aliens, lost, friends), but apparently Babe: Pig In the City was a fun watch.
I know the movie was 10 years ago, but WAS IT? WAS IT A GOOD WATCH?
Okay - back to looking for things to do in Singapore. And thinking about what I should be having for lunch.
OOH Jamie At Home's ON! YEAY! He's going to make me so hungry. Sigh.
Have a good weekend!
