Live the language

This video is making me miss Beijing like crazy.

Watch it!  Ça donne vraiment le goût de voyager, de sortir de son nid et ouvrir les yeux!

 very lovely video, lovely fonts, lovely choice of words.   Watch it watch it!

Sous le ciel de Paris

Showing me these pictures is like teasing a hungry fat kid with ice cream.

 Jardin des Tuileries

 gare du Nord.

 Pavillon de Flore
 must be a perfect spot for making out, if there are no hobos around.

Place du Tertre

Bonne nuit !

I just want to spoon forever


I sighed of relief as I walked out of the classroom.

After almost 5 hours of not peeing, I can say that it was the longest exam of my life.

beautiful people at Chanel Haute Couture

My Gaspard Ulliel. Hands off Karl!!

Janelle Monae, such a cutie pie :)
I want this pleated dress, it looks perfect on Kirsten!!
Diane Kruger
I like the gold sequin (or coins or something?) paired with the delicious camel. Not too fond of the hairdo though.

Alexa Chung, I wonder if her legs just break when she bangs her knees ......

hey I'm only picking on her to make it fair for all the times I made fun of fat people.

Wes Anderson

Today I discovered that the director of The Royal Tenenbaums also made Fantastic Mister Fox, an original and lovely stop-motion animation, and that he is also the one who wrote Rushmore!  Tell me, how come some people are just so talented?

 Today I'm going to watch The Darjeeling Limited (Owen Wilson, Jason Schwatzman, Adrien Brody), I'm so excited!!

here's a prologue to it, called Hotel Chevalier, featuring Natalie Portman (stunning as always....)

Hotel Chevalier from q1ch on Vimeo.

I have to say, this short film  is quite depressing, whereas the sequel movie is more of an adventure comedy (in India nonetheless hihihi). Which is good, because you don't want to reverse the order ;)

booooooored to death.

“ Pourquoi tout le monde fuit-il la solitude ? Parce qu’elle oblige à penser. Personne ne veut la solitude, car elle laisse trop de temps pour réfléchir. Or plus on pense, plus on est intelligent, donc plus on est triste.  "

Frederic Beigbeder - L’amour dure trois ans

Merci Jasmin !
Black Swan reminded me of this Swan Lake anime I watched during my childhood, so I searched it up on youtube. It brought back tons of memories!  Have you watched it too? I think I even have the illustrated book somewhere, I was super obsessed at the time!
(sorry for the cascada song, it's the only good quality video I found)

wooow my blog has been so uncoherent/gay lately, I'm sure that when I'll look back in a few months, I'll be wondering what kind of phase was I going through.

Asian Chicks!!

Having an asian girlfriend is really great hihi

plastic bags

Everytime you ask for a plastic bag , I judge you.
And if you happen to be a fatass (which happens to two thirds of the villagers), I judge you even more.  I judge you because you probably drove 10km back and forth to buy some bacon and pepsi, and you can't even hold them in your chubby jello arms back to the car. 

J'ai pris l'initiative de ne plus donner de sac et mettre leurs achats dans des boites de cartons inutiles (il y en a pleins venant des commandes de vins chaque semaine), c'est tellement + résistant et pratique!! je dois les défaire et les recycler sinon. 

"Madame, je préfère cinq sacs de plastique, c'est plus facile à porter plutôt qu'une boîte"     Ces imbéciles me laissent bouche bée.  Comment tu peux préférer les sacs de plastique, une fois dans la voiture, toutes tes choses roulent dehors, alors qu'une boîte c'est hyper facile à ranger dans le coffre arrière!    J'ai demandé à mes parents de charger 5cent pour les sacs COMME PARTOUT AILLEURS mais ils refusent disant que les clients vont se plaindre.  fatasses will always complain anyway =_=
en plus de polluer l'environnement, ils polluent ma vue et l'environnement visuel.  Je m'en fiche que c'est complètement méchant ce que j'écris en ce moment.

get a formspring!!!

okay I wish I could write an interesting post for once, instead of posting random  pictures/youtube videos/quotes/blabla on the latest movies I've watched. I'm updating today to entertain Andrew (surviving in Hyderabad, almost 3 weeks!)

Je voudrais vraiment écrire quelque chose, mais c'est le néant total dans mon cerveau en ce moment. My thoughts usually alternate from "Gosh, I miss him"   to "Sh*t I really need to find a job", and in between I'm just like a dead fish with my mouth open and drooling, doing nothing but browsing job search engines. My brain has developped an automatic filter to help me sort out the job offers....

ANYWAYS, since I don't know what to write you gangstas could ask me some anonymous, immature/random/existential questions on formspring  and I promise I will answer all of them.  If a question gets really immature and personal, I'm just going to assume it's from Huilong hahaha

uughh sleepless

Two psychotic movies in a day + reading a gothic-eery Radcliffe novel make it impossible to sleep.

Black Swan was mind blowing, it lived up to my expectations, and Natalie was, well , flawless :)

It played around a lot of the ballerina stereotypes (bulimic, psychotic ex ballerina mother with failed career, jealousy among the girls, obsessions,...) but the storyline was solidly built and got us trapped until the very end. 

The scene with the creepy perverted old guy in the metro was priceless hahaha

D'habitude je regarde les films jusqu'au bout, même s'ils sont d'un ennui mortel... Je leur donne une chance jusqu'à la toute fin pour se prouver.  Mais aujourd'hui en regardant Baobei in Love (film chinois de 2004) , j'ai abandonné 15 minutes avant la fin, ce film m'a donné envie de me ronger tous mes ongles en plus de me donner un mal de tête intense. 

Il est sorti au cinéma le jour de la st-valentin en 2004, et je peux comprendre que beaucoup de personnes s'attendaient à une comédie romantique, ou du moins quelque chose de léger vu le titre.  Ce qui a commencé comme une histoire à la Amélie Poulain (le côté fantastique, la saturation des couleurs, la petite fille mignonne free-spirited, etc)  s'est ensuite dégénéré en horreur-néant absurde-caméra tournant 360°  tel l'esprit psychotique de la fille en question.  Ce n'était plus une histoire d'amour, on était rentré dans son cerveau de malade mentale et son traumatisme d'enfance.    Bref, au début je croyais qu'elle allait sauver le mec de son monde matérialiste et donner un sens à sa vie, mais finalement elle l'a juste entraîné dans un cauchemar/délire.

J'adore l'actrice, mais j'aimerai sortir ce film le plus vite de ma tête.

 En fait, on a pu voir Chen Kun pendant 5 minutes du film, même sur une chaise roulante il est YUMMY .  C'est un des seuls acteurs acteurs chinois que j'ai toujours trouvé beaux.

UUghhhhhhhhhhhh ......................crazy chick

Some of the most life-shaping decisions you make in this season will be about walking away from good-enough, in search of can’t-live-without.

p:s  Depuis quand est-ce que la possession d'un blackberry est un fkin critère d'embauchement?? je vous emmerde.

for the hatuuuuurs , you're probably going to see this as propaganda anyway

     When we were the sick man of Asia, we were called the yellow peril.
  When we are billed to be the next superpower, we are called the threat.
  When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets.
  When we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.
  When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your fair share.
  When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again,
              free Tibet you screamed, It was an invasion!  
  When tried communism, you hated us for being communist.
  When we embrace capitalism, you hate us for being capitalist.
  When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.
  When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights.
  When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.
  When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.
  When we build our industries, you call us polluters.
  When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.
  When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.
  When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.
  When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.
  When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.
  When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.
  When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobes.

kid Jamal: I just need Maman to like my singing, and were in the money, big money Latika.

 kid Latika: And then what? Can we stop begging?

 kid Jamal: Begging? Are you kidding? We'll live in a big house on Harbour Road. You, me and Salim, the three musketeers.

Poise, poise, more poise

Premier article de 2011!

J'ai décidé de ne rien écrire ces jours-ci puisque je n'avais rien de gentil à dire. J'ai suivi ma résolution de rester en forme, en me réveillant tôt chaque jour et en allant au lit pas trop tard, et en faisant des longues marches de 1heure et +.

Une autre de mes résolutions se résume par "poise", je sais pas l'équivalent en français mais ça englobe la posture, la grâce, l'équilibre, le sang-froid. Il faut vraiment que je surveille ma posture pour ne pas finir en bossu de notre-dame.

Ces derniers temps j'aime écouter les vieilles chansons de Françoise Hardy, en voici une dame qui incarne l'élégance et le sang-froid!!

Je me souviens qu'en secondaire 2, Jenni avait choisi de présenter une de ses chansons "Tous les garçons et filles" dans le cours de français. haha.  Je ne savais pas qui c'était dans ce temps-là.

Un peu de eyeliner, une frange parfaite, un style simple et indémodable, et beaucoup, beaucoup de classe ...

Effortless perfection.
