Buongiorno!

I was wide awake at 01:00. I was binge-watching Las Chicas del Cable, but had to stop and turn off the TV coz my husband needed to sleep. He needed to work the next day (Saturday) as there’s no work on Monday.

I asked if I can read until I feel sleepy and he said yes. So I planned to read The Broker by John Grisham (the 9th book from him). I finished reading Playing for Pizza the other night, and it was interesting I didn’t sleep until I reached the last page. I can finally spell Buongiorno after reading it 😄 (heard it a lot of times at work but didn’t bother how it’s spelled), and because of the novel, I am kind of interested on what’s the real life in a small village or city in Italy. How the author described Parma and the real Italian people really captivated me.

Hopefully I can go to Tuscany (because of the  movie Under the Tuscan Sun) or to the Almafi Coast (saw a Youtube video about it) someday (when there’s enough savings). I was in Milan, Lake Como, and Rome. I would like to explore the other cities.

Anyway, I had a photo that was taken in Rome, in the hotel where we stayed for 5 nights. The building was previously a factory, but it seems it didn’t work so they converted to a hotel. There were lots of rooms and empty hallways that made it a bit scary, but I still tried to pose like a pro (joke). 😊😀

My husband told me about the CCTV right after the picture-taking so probably the Italians in-charge were laughing or giggling while watching me (because the photo was only one of many: take 1, take 2 until take 30). 😊😁

Buongiorno!

The Stolen Years – a Love-and-Tragedy Story

the-stolen-years

It is the English title of a Chinese movie. The first few scenes were about a couple (named Yu and Mann) who likes to film themselves while traveling, eating, driving, etc. They were so sweet and so full of love for each other. They just got married.

One time she asked him to kiss her while they were on a motorcycle driving somewhere. She was filming their trip and was insistent so he turned his head to kiss her but then they met an accident.

The next scene was in a hospital. She woke up. And the first thing she looked for was her husband. Her sister was surprised because they were divorced so she told her about it. She was surprised as she thought she just woke up from the motorcycle accident, which happened during their honeymoon. But, she woke up from another accident (a car one which would be revealed later on in the movie) which she couldn’t recall.
