蹺家記 The Escapist in Me

歲末聚會多, 萬聖節感恩節接踵而至, 勞動階級要俗務擺兩旁放假出國不易.  然舊金山灣依山傍水, 當旅行癮發作還是可駕愛駒馳騁, 就近求解藥:

T&L故事頗富爭議性, 深具女性主義色彩, 年代久遠記不得自己到底有沒有欣賞過這部電影, 即使有, 當時太年少, 無法明瞭於生命蒼涼的控訴.  不過有心人都記得兩位演技精湛的美艷女主角Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis和萬人迷Brad Pitt初登大銀幕演個小混混的痞樣.

有約東京 Meet Me in Tokyo

像不像是愛情喜劇的片名?

Feeling lucky to be able to stop by Tokyo for some design inspiration before the official work trip started thanks to my understanding boss and my in-laws helping out.  On his way back from Singapore to the Bay Area, on my way to South East Asia from San Francisco, Mr. LK and I met in Tokyo for dinner and coffee.
此趟初秋環亞大出差前決定給自己ㄧ趟小小靈感之旅: 過境東京三天!  剛好LK先生自新加坡公務結束回程暫停日本, 也多得公婆不久前來美國幫忙照顧小V, 夫妻倆能夠於異地約會, LK先生還替我先扛回大包小包的戰利品 :)

怎能不讓我咖啡色的眼睛染上憂鬱的藍 Happy in Singapore

Happy in WHERE… the city-state that has long been criticized as bland?!  For a short tropical vacation, I loved it!  I missed the serenity of Capella and Cassia's dim sum brunch.
一片昇平的南國, 一派樂天的華洋雜處, 日新月異的星加坡… 舊地重遊說不出眷戀還是懷念.

嘆息橋 I Will Cross That Bridge when I Come to It

八月是生日月, 忙忙碌碌又過ㄧ年長ㄧ歲.  不是沒停下腳步思考人生意義, 而是往往來不及感嘆便讓生活排山倒海而來的考驗淹沒… 口頭禪:  船到橋頭自然直, 直不了便橫著過吧?  賭氣得來理直氣壯, 十足草根韌性兼升斗小民, 雖然內心深處亦有舊時浪漫… 等孩子大些放下俗務再修個學位:  Crossing  the Bridge of Sighs in Cambridge - 那是徐志摩再別康橋的情懷, 十年前的我揮揮衣袖間滿滿自戀, 如今, 嗯... 但覺肉麻難耐 :P

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,
