私人放映室 In-flight Cinema

前陣子回新加坡渡假, 舊地重遊感觸良多, 待日後慢慢寫來.  長途旅行於耐性和體力皆是莫大考驗, 若說有任何附加值, 便是可名正言順當十幾個小時的沙發馬鈴薯: 累了倒頭睡, 餓了按鈕喚空姐備食.  失眠和看電影像手牽手吵嘴接吻的小情人… 極損精神健康, 然墮落的愛誰能抗拒?  此趟來回觀賞了六部電影:

Returned from a vacation in Singapore a while ago, I will definitely write about my tropical revelations later.  Before I forget, I want to jot down a few notes about my in-flight cinemarathon(and the accompanying meals on board), quite the saving grace!  My eastbound journey started with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty(rather fitting :).  Not sure if all the elements worked with the pensive daydreamer's daydreams, the self-help romantic crush, and a miraculous discovery of negative no. 25 but I found Kristen Wiig singing Space Oddity irresistible and the song kind of summed all up.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty雖然超現實場景貫穿全片,

情迷新德里 Out of India 1.0

這兩年公差印度已比回臺北頻繁, 五月商旅重頭戲是出席公司國際營運新德里分部開幕酒會, 重現東印度洋行風采.  也許於飛行途中皆觀賞了American Hustle, 各同僚紛紛穿起復古婀娜shirt dress, 掛著長串吊墜耳環, 寶萊塢式派對上搖曳生姿…  算是密集高壓會議前的自娛娛人.

燦爛五月天 Miss LK's Rhapsody 6th Anniversary

與其説忙, 不若直認缺乏自律, 文思的培養能賴人嗎? 生活不可不謂充實, 但絶對不夠明澈.  欣賞了幅美景, 讀了篇好文章, 倒也不知趕著什麼? 總沒能靜下心讓自己感受便要move on.
What do people do in lovely May Day?  The LK clan visited the Sea World and LEGO Land over the Memorial long weekend. Surprisingly I was just as mesmerized by the majestic animals and entranced by intricate building blocks.  We then wrapped up the journey at the Grand del Mar with healing SPA, Mediterranean fare at Amaya,

鍋裏有隻雞 Poulet Au The

An old sketch I did at L'Arpege Paris in 2011 - fresh radish as the table setting!  When was the last time I actually write or draw for fun?  Perhaps this book by Brigid Schulte, Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time could point me to the right direction.
那天接小V下課懶燒飯, 帶他上館子吃冰淇淋兼逛書店, 巧遇Brigid Schulte新書發表會 - "Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time" ,可不正點出了職業女性難處?

古都風情 Once Upon a Time in Kyoto

常去東京, 重遊京都卻是多年來首度, 對千年繁華的印象停留在上世紀末的初夏:清水寺碧意森森的竹林和宇治金時淡苦回甘, 我和好友D白恤衫白布鞋汗流浹背踏遍往山門的石階, 年輕的惶恐, 又是那麼氣盛的雄心, 等不及要看這世界...

冷!  出了京都車站趕緊圍上毛帽毛耳罩, 古都獨有的沈斂莊重, 自然而然讓人放緩腳步, 靜謐品味湛藍的天, 徐徐龍吟的清風, 冬陽金光遍撒的壯麗, 或者, 自己的存在.  一期一會, 多年前青春正盛時我造訪你, 而今偕夫擕子, 你可還認得?
While reading the latest short story collection by Karen Russell, 'Vampires in The Lemon Grove',  I came across a thought provoking line:  Regret is a pilgrimage back to the place where I was free to choose.
