A Movie and A Book

i picked up reading again...i thot i should try living a normal life instead of just scrap scrap scrap

I was at MPH the other day and i saw this book under the Best Seller Sections
Hmmm... the moment my hands was at the book i couldn't stop reading and finally stop scrapping Unbelievable hand started itching today and i know it's time to start scrapping. Its been only 2 days! LOL

My early synopsis of the book (i'm only at 4th Chapter)
At 45, Adrienne Willis must rethink her life when her husband abandons her for a younger woman.

The trials of raising her teenage children and caring for her sick father have worn her down, but at the request of a friend and in hopes of respite, she's gone to the coastal village of Rodanthe in North Carolina to tend the local inn for the weekend.

With a major storm brewing, the time away doesn't look promising...until a guest named Paul Flanner arrives. At 54, Paul is a successful surgeon, but in the previous six months his life has unraveled into something he doesn't recognize.

Estranged from his son and recently divorced, he's sold his practice and his home and has journeyed to this isolated town in hopes of closing a painful chapter in his past.

Adrienne and Paul come together as the storm brews over Rodanthe, but what begins between them over the weekend will resonate throughout the rest of their lives, intertwining past and future, love and loss.
COMING SOON AS A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane! (keeping my finger cross that it comes to KL!)

IP Man

Not a Review.... (i watched em' today) No, no, no, it's not I-P Man
It's about this Wing Chun sifu
Not some hero called Internet Protocol Man
Who flies around fighting cybercrime.
I'm saying that because it IS AWESOME.
Haven't seen a kungfu movie I REALLY liked in ages.
But the fighting here was damn good.
Kinda makes you wanna learn Wing Chun as well.

I actually LIKED the main character
Not because he can kick ass
But because he can kick ass AND look damn cool doing it.
I mean cool not just because he can kick ass
But the WAY he does it.

Donnie Yen as Ip Man does it with such little effort
He is practically invicible and he does it with such a beautifying smile
If you were his opponent,You be smiling back at him
Even though your legs, arms and neck have all been broken.
The fight scenes are damn cool as well
Got quite a few one on ones
One where he uses a damn LOOONG pole
And one where he uses a FEATHER DUSTER
To beat the crap out of the bad guy using a damn SWORD.
And if you think the one on ones are great,Wait till you see him take on TEN karate-ing Japs.

In every movie will surely have the women in life..she's quite cute and tall
Taller than him
The whole movie also flows along pretty well
Lots of fighting in between
And not THAT much emo-ing too.
Got drama drama a bit,But at least it doesn't bore you.
