I am (not) a Movie Buff

Last weekend (on Saturday, to be precise) I met my so-called net-friend from Bandung, Danu Candra, at eX-Plaza Indonesia. He did not intentionally come to see me; of course, he had his own gathering with his friends from CineFriends mailing list. So, there I was in the middle of movie-buffs crowd. Danu wrote about the gathering (specifically!) here.

Little story about Danu, our first virtual met was on mIRC. I was addicted to raise my score on scramble game at that time, and he was my great competitor! Despite his faster-internet-connection-than-me, he was also a very fast typist. And I was stranded at a time that I encouraged myself to make a private conversation with him, letting him know how much I was desperate about his competitive action. In short, I wanted him to let me win the game! LOL. Well, he is not only my net-friend now, but already being one of my friends in real world. He is so nice, people, because he brought me 20 gepuk Nyong from Bandung! *grin* Thank you very much, Dan. J

As for today, I just saw The Lake House at Anggrek 21 along with Karina, Sabine, J-Oh, and my brother. The movie was directed by Argentinian director Alejandro Agresti, is based on the Jeon Ji-Hyun Korean hit, Il Mare, which happens to be the name of the house that both movies are centered around.

Here’s a synopsis I copied from ELLE Magazine (Singapore edition):

Dr. Kate Forster (Bullock) feels it’s time for a change in her life and decides to leave her suburban practice for a job at the busy Chicago hospital. In doing so, she must leave behind the beautiful lake house that she has been living in. She decides to leave a note for the new owner in the mailbox asking him to forward future mail to her and explaining the state of the house. When Alex Wyler (Reeves) finally reads the note, the state of the house is completely different –dilapidated and in need of severe reconstruction. They soon find out that they are in fact living two years apart (Alex in 2004 and Kate in 2006) and are miraculously able to correspond with each other.

I was not interested to see the movie, but since Karina refused to watch Miami Vice (she is not keen to watch action movie) I didn't have any choice to make.

Before watching the movie, we had lunch at Pizza Hut on the 3rd floor. Actually only 3 of us –Karina, Sabine, and me– had meals. J-Oh caught up with us shortly afterwards. Yes we were surely having a chit-chat; schools, girlfriends, boyfriends of our girlfriends, holiday, and trip to US! J-Oh invited us to spend holidays in US! She promised to take care of our accommodation and left the transportation to Fara *LOL*. Speaking about Disneyland as one of our destinations, J-Oh and I have the same interest; riding thrilling rollercoaster and tower-of-terror to put on our adrenaline. Karina and Sabine are vice versa. Karina prefers Cinderella show to rollercoaster, and Sabine remains silent. She doesn’t agree with any of us.

When it goes to our future plan, Karina will have her graduation soon on July next year. She plans to work in Singapore. J-Oh still has 2 years to go to complete her Bachelor’s Degree. And for Sabine and me, we still need plenty time to be able to practice as a medical doctor. *hiks*

About being specialist doctor, argh, I don’t have time to think that far. In fact, Sabine and I may consider business for Master’s Degree. LOL. It is really absurd, guys. Pay no attention to it.

But 4 of us have one conclusion, no matter what we will be in the future, we still have to search for our companion (read: husband) and we believe, he will make us feel –just fine.
