Filem: Life Of Pi

Life of pi poster
I was most excited to hear that a favourite book of mine from way back when I first read it in 2002 was being turned into a movie directed by Ang Lee. But as life would have it, Bobby & I were so busy earlier this month when it first came out here in Malaysia that it was with a huge relief when we finally made it to the cinema last weekend to catch Life of Pi in 3D. I think everyone needs to see this. It's truly a breathtaking movie & the CGI is beyond words. A boy shipwrecked for 227 days in the middle of the Pacific with an adult Bengal tiger is pretty out there, I have to admit but gosh, what a story! It's so wonderful, I bought tickets to watch it again in IMAX this week!

P/S: I found a really great Q & A with Yann Martel about the novel on the ABC News site.

Thanks & Stay Tuned

Don't let anyone tell you that organising any event is easy. It's not, but do take my word for it, it's fulfilling especially when you see everything you envisioned come together. 

Thank you Hello Deer for your wonderful space & to everyone who came to support Malaysian Etsy crafters & artisans, you are amazing! It's because of you that we get to do what we love best. Big props also to all the Team Etsy Malaysia members who took a risk to join the very first Handmade Love Market.

Sabah Holiday


Bobby & I will be away for a good long week, exploring beautiful Sabah. We'll be spending a couple of days at Kota Kinabalu followed by limitless scuba diving at Mabul's Sipadan Water Village. I'm sure to be back with heaps of pictures to bore you but in the meantime, check out this video of Sipadan Water Village & diving at Sipadan. We're so excited!

Ahhh, how much I love Scandinavian design, let me count the ways. And this Scandinavian apartment is just perfection in my eyes. Especially that herringbone wooden flooring in the living room & bedroom and that light sea foam blue kitchen. Love!
