for a movie called perfume, the movie stinks! The book was probably worth reading, but the film didn’t capture whatever essence or meaning the scent of those women really emboddied, because in the end i just wanted a cartoon acme mallet and bash …(read more)whoever was responsible for the bad acting and comedic interpretation.
being such a fashionphile, i like to keep up with latest fashion news. so the simpsons have made it to Harper’s Bazaar in their August 2007 spread. They’re featured touring paris with Linda Evangelista, hitting all the major brilliant designers. for such a small town family, they’ve already sprung from springfield to the fashion capital! it makes me jealous, wondering if marge got to keep all those clothes.

i’ll post my devotion for this week. there’s this lyric from a song i’ve been hearing on the radio every morning: “Hold me Jesus cuz i’m shaking like a leaf. you were then king of my glory. will you be my prince of peace?” i know you guys don’t really get to see my depressing side…my sad moods, but when i was younger, i used to get depressed a lot. i really considered myself as a loner although i did have close friends. and these days, i still have bouts of sadness, moments when i just feel helpless and tired of everything, but this song reminds us that it’s ok to feel like that sometimes because God steps in and takes us with His might and just holds us. just like 1 pet. 5:7, we can cast all our burdens to Him, not just because he CAN handle it, but because he truly cares for us. his affection for us assures us that He’s not just the king of glory, with the power to move obstacles gloriously, but he’s also the prince of peace, with the tenderness to heal and comfort, to give us peace when life throws us around… i […]
i’ll be blogging regularly about weddings since i’m a bridesmaid for next year, and everyone knows, the bridesmaid loves to do a little digging of her own to help the bride. and maybe one year, perze and i will be able to renew our vows and share our story with those we cherish, so it’s good to take notes and make these online bookmarks. so one of the creators of Blogger got married, and had a lavish event filled with classy eye candy and quirky details that i really appreciate in a wedding. i’m definitely one for quirky and unconventional weddings, without having to compromise tradition as well. so above is the wedding of Ev and Sara. Her dress is Vera Wang, especially altered for her, with all the delicious appliques that is to die for! as you can see in the first picture, they played rock, scissors, paper to see who’d recite their vows first, which is pretty entertaining between the typical program. and there’s their cake topper. i would have liked to see more of their pictures, but this is all i could recover without having to cntrl+prntscrn.
so yesterday, after having put em’s bottle in my purse, along w/ my digital kodak, my camera started acting funny because it accidentally got wet (thanks to advent’s leaky bottles). luckily, after it dried off, it worked well again, but perze generously asked me to look for “replacements.” for fun, i did. and this won my heart because i know i can’t yet afford an expensive digital slr camera like my brother. but this came close to my expectations. specs 10.0 Megapixels for stunning prints as large as 20 x 30 inches. 3.5x Optical Zoom-Nikkor Glass Lens provides exceptional pictures with incredible color and clarity.
