revived

I've changed my mind again!!!! For the ump-teenth times already hahahaha...

I know.. I know.... This time for sure la.

Within these eight months, I didn't know what I had been doing... what I had been thinking.... those were so NOT me! Will blame myself for getting distracted mad easily...

But thanks God, you've sent a person to open my eyes again, to remind me of what I used to dream of..

This time it's confusing, but this is EXACTLY what I want! This is EXACTLY what I'm passionate about!!




God please guide me...
Mother Mary please walk with me..



I'm back catching my old dream~~


Hello, hard work! :))

11/6/10

my heart goes with the sound of music





Do, a deer a female deer
Re, a drop of golden sun
Mi, a name I call myself
Fa, a long long way to run~~





Feel familiar to the song above?? Don't say you don't cos I might faint right now haha... It's the "Do-Re-Mi" song from the famous musical movie THE SOUND OF MUSIC, which celebrated its 45th anniversary this year!!!! OMG... FOURTY FIVE years since its release date, it has been embraced by its fanatic viewers and being bequeathed to generations!! Sure there are many great Oscar-winning movies out there, but how many movies do you know that were watched by our grandparents and their children in their younger years, and still become their grandchildren's forever favorite pieces in the next fifty years?? How many movies do you know as timeless as it is?

I can say, only Fraulein Maria and The Von Trapp Family who can do it!



And that's the classic picture of the movie, showing Maria singing "Sound of Music" on the Alps Mountain.

You know, dated back the technology used in making a movie wasn't as well-developed as we are having now. Thus they put more effort in filming a well-written story with good scenes, magnificent sceneries, and heart-moving songs. There's no single scene I didn't cherish to see in this movie. Almost all of them are my favorites, from the very beginning Maria runs across the flower fields, the abbey, the places she takes the children to for playing while their father is on trip, the moments they sings, dances, yodels in their puppet show, and of course, the beautiful house the Von Trapp family lives in!! There's no single song I don't like to sing along in this movie. All of them were very well written, heart-moving, and convey good messages, too.. :,) Well, these words come from a musical movie's addict who almost hardly sit still every time she watches Chicago and Glee hehee... but I don't think you can hate this movie, it's just too lovely.. ♥ Plus, I always have a 'connection' to the 40's to 60's, like in World War or Nazi era.. I'm always fond of the settings, the clothes, the hairstyles, but I'm not a fan of Holocaust.

When I was watching this movie for the first time, I was only sixteen. It was Christmas and I immediately fell in love. I remembered I ever wished I was a Von Trapp family member, born as Liesl, the first daughter of the family and lived in that house, too.


She's a beauty with bright blue eyes, wears pretty dresses, and her hair is always lovely and tied up in ribbons.. I wish at the same age with her, I could be as a lady as her.  She's the one I used to want to grow up like. Too bad, I was much like a boy than a girl.. but, see! I still had that little-girl heart inside, didn't I? XDD~~




That's one of my favorite scenes, when Liesl and father sing "Edelweiss" together. To me, "Edelweiss" is the most heart-moving song from this movie as it shows very well how the captain's feeling about his country. At the end when the captain whispers, "....bless my homeland forever...." he always gives me goosebumps. I once thought that it was an Austrian folk song, but later figured out that it was written by Rodgers & Hammerstein for this movie.

Rolf & Liesl singing "Sixteen Going On Seventeen"


But as much as I wanted to be like Liesl, unlike her, the one I had my crush on in this movie is not Rolf. Oh boy, my huge crush is the father aka Captain Georg von Trapp aka Christopher Plummer!!! Hahahaa.... *blush



He's handsome and a gentlemen, it's only normal for me to like him hehehe... and he sings and dances, too!!

Hence my favorite scene muwahahahaha~~~ Unlike Liesl looking fondly at him as a father, I imagine myself looking fondly at him as my boyfie KUAKUAKUA~~~ XDD

*slaps on face




I don't know how many times I have watched this movie for, or have sung along their songs.. The guy I watched in Oprah claimed he had watched this movie for 120++ times during his period as a soldier in Vietnam War!!!! He said that this movie was his only 3-hours-escape to happiness from the events he experienced outside the camp!! Well, it's just like how Maria sings it out....


The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music

My heart wants to sing every song it hears
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees

My heart wants to sigh like a chime
That flies from a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips

And falls over stones on its way
To sing through the night
Like a lark who is learning to pray

I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I'll sing once more



And so will my heart~


Auf wiedersehen ♥

purplish



I love macro, but I don't have the lens yet, so I usually cheat by applying extreme crop hehe.. However yesterday I decided to try a trick by reversing the 50mm lens.

The results other showed in internet are good, but I undoubtedly failed,  blame my super shaky hands.. XD


I wanna buy more flowers~

raindrops keep falling on my head



Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

jealous



This is not a recently taken picture, but I wanted to learn how to use curves in Lab Color so I used this one.. I like how it popped the color, but I guess a lil' too much for the flower.. Don't you think so? I should retry but me ish too lazy to do that hehe.. :P

My brother has just come back from his office trip to Bali, and he made me dead-envious as he scuba dived in Nusa Dua and spotted razor fishes and blowfishes, which he described as, 'fugly but mad cute'! T_________T

I also wanna see blowfishes.... :((((((((((

Last time I fun dived in Tanjung Benoa, the instructor only took me down to 5 meters.. I was excited though there wasn't much to see, the fishes and the corals were so-so. But he dived down to 9 meters thus he spotted them and many other fishes he couldn't name.
