Crazy Little Thing Called Love: a review

Thanks to Xianni for recommending this Thai movie. It is excellent!

This movie is about a teenage girl, Nam, who is in love with her senior, Chon. Chon is handsome, popular, athletic and artistic, while Nam is quite the opposite. The story is basically told from her point of view - of how she transforms herself from a dorky-looking girl to a beauty and tries her very best to attract his attention.

It has all the elements of first love - a good-looking crush, an equally good-looking rival and a few loyal friends who support our protagonist. I find myself cheering Nam on, laughing at her misadventures and cry with her when things didn't really work out.

Frankly, I wish something like that happened to me back in secondary school. Too bad that our school is an all-girl institution! *damn!* Well, for someone like me, watching this movie is as good as it gets.

Kitchen Princess

Okay. Spent the entire night reading 47 chapters worth of manga, when I am supposed to be doing outline for the review article. Someone please shoot me!!

Here's the link to the manga: http://www.mangafox.com/manga/kitchen_princess/

Plot is just so-so. I could guess who is the protagonist's prince from the very first chapter. But for what it's worth, it is quite entertaining and it does deliver some shocking twists.

Jia Mun and Lee Kuan, you guys are the only two friends who actually cook desserts. So if you are reading this, please take note. This manga is actually a cookbook in disguise! xD Every chapter is accompanied by recipes for things such as cocktail, carrot cake, apple cake, scones and hard-to-pronounce-its-name French desserts.

So who says you can't learn anything from manga, huh?

If reincarnation exists, I must be something other than human in my previous life. Because I don't know how to act like a normal person. I feel like running as fast as I could to somewhere far, far away or fly as high as I could. I want to escape. But from what? I don't know.
