To Me You Are Perfect

”..and at Christmas you tell the truth… to me you are perfect… Enough. Enough for now.”

This is one of my favorites, if not my favorite scene in the movie. This never fails to make me cry. I have been watching it for the past 2 Christmases and I think I have to grab a copy again and watch it before the year ends. =)

Season's Greetings!

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas time.

♪♫ Although it's been said, many times, many ways...
Merry Christmas to you... ♪♫

When Harry Met Sally

It's one of those classics that has stayed in my must-watch-movie list for a long time. This is one of those epic friendship-turning-into-love plots. I know that watching it right now is like stabbing myself several times, but since I still am a romantic at heart, I grabbed the chance to view it. I was not disappointed. It was original, funny and heart-warming, it made me wanna fall in love all over again. I love the script and the music. I also love the short clips or interviews of couples who had long-lasting relationships that they insert in-between the story. The ending was a a bit abrupt for me, but overall, it was enjoyable.  I am such a sucker for love stories! Too bad these things just happen in fiction. =p

Farro brothers leave Paramore

I'm just glad I was able to watch them perform live before this all happened. Wish them all the best of luck! News taken from this link.

Josh and Zac of Paramore are leaving the band. Below is a message from the band 
“Over the past 6 years, our band has been through some of the most intense and incredible experiences of our lives. None of these things have been without trial. We’ve worked so hard to get to where we are and the fact that you are all still here with us says something about you that we will never be able to truly understand. You have stuck with us through thick and thin and we are so grateful. A couple of months ago, Josh and Zac let us know they would be leaving the band after our show in Orlando last Sunday. None of us were really shocked. For the last year it hasn’t seemed as if they wanted to be around anymore. We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy and if that isn’t here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere. But we never for a second thought about leaving any of this behind. We really hope that you can be encouraged by the fact that the three of us who are still here are ready to take on another chapter of our journey together. You have always been what keeps us going so why would we stop now? We want to stick by you. Knowing that we have a unified passion and a clear vision makes us feel stronger than ever. The “blog” that was posted regarding everything that is going on with our band was a fake. We aren’t sure who did it or why… And we aren’t sure how they timed it this way. This is the first time that we have spoken out about what’s going on and we wouldn’t have released an official statement that important through a personal blog. So, we’re sorry for any confusion and just to remain clear, this is the first time we have spoken out about this. We have some amazing things lined up for next year starting with our tour in South America. We are still coming to you and we are excited about who we are bringing with us! The tour is still on and we can’t wait to see you all. As we look back, and now as we look with excitement to the future, in all of this what truly matters are the good times. The pictures of us with our arms around each other, the long van rides, your faces while you sing along as we play. Thank you for getting us right here to this very moment. We look forward to our best times. And we hope you will go there with us.
Love, Hayley, Jeremy & Taylor

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

I've read the book a while ago and forgetting the story before watching the movie made it easier for me to appreciate the adapatation. It was a breather not to compare each scene to the book and just enjoy every moment in 3D. "The Chronicles of Narnia" has always been one influential story for me and I love seeing the characters on the big screen all growing up. Since I have always been a crybaby, I can't help but sniffle in the end because I love the lines and I love the music. Some adults would probably not love the movie because it still adapted from children fiction (and I don't think it has crossed-over the adult audience yet), unless these adults are like me who have read the books and enjoyed them... or unless they are also like me who love watching eye candies like Ben Barnes and Skandar Keynes in all their majestic glory. =)
