The Impending Sadness descends. Effectively today,
One of my best friends and colleagues, PN NANI AHMAD,
finally got her transfer to SMAT Tengku Ampuan Jemaah
which is very near to her house and would provide her
with so much more in her life than her previous engagement.
I've known her for TWO years but we clicked and became very
good friends easily. I think it was in her nature-she as very friendly,
amiable and benevolent. Circumstances in her life would have pushed
a lot of people to the brink but she is still around. Nani embodies what
I used to have in people around me-She embodies friendship, fun,
understanding and grace. Oh, and she teased me so much but she
coloured my life with her antiques and eccentricities.
I will remember her stories, her children and her benevolance.
Wherever she goes, she'll buy me a present, though just a keychain.
She is a keychain freak, ergo I have ALOT of keychains. LOL
TO NANI, I dedicate this song
- From this valley they say you are going,
- We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile.
- For they say you are taking the sunshine,
- That has brightened our pathway awhile.
- So come sit by my side if you love me.
- Do not hasten to bid me adieu.
- Just remember the Red River Valley,
- And the one that has loved you so true.

I MUST ADMIT that I used to love reading chick lit. It's like a reverse of sorts
since I started reading romance books since I was form four. Heck, whn I was
in Form 1, I read literary works like GREAT EXPECTATIONS and A TALE OF TWO CITIES.
And now I read children's books LOL
Ok, so I just finished the movie CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC and given the praises
the book it was based upon got, I felt intrigued and assumed that it would live up to its name
AND genre. However, I barely laugh at all during the whole course of movie and the movie
was DRY. Sigh. Where is the romance?
One thing I definitely like about this is Isla Fisher-she's such a sweet and darling person,
and enjoyable on screen. However nil chemistry with Hugh Dancy ORZ
WHICH reminds me of another movie which was fantastic-
THE DIARY OF BRIDGET JONES.[Photo]
I relate more to Bridget than Rebecca
in the movie. And of course I am PARTIAL to COLIN FIRTH. However Renee and Firth
make a lovely couple. Hugh Grant is a dish too, but in a bas****ly way hoho
I remembered watching Bridget Jones in my undergrads days and it struck me.
Mark Darcy's" I LIKE U JUST THE WAY U ARE" and "That was MY wife, MY heart.."
just killed me-and of course Bridget's BLUE SOUP-Hillarious!!
ok. I'm thinking of watching ATONEMENT but the ending was spoilt
for me..Should I watch?
