P.S. I love you

2 Jul

First of a many movies on my bucket list. Today I saw “P.S. I love you” with my bf. I actually should have thought this through; it was night time and I should have picked a different movie, less depressing. As you can probably guess, I am posting this here tonight at 2AM in the morning because I can not sleep…due to post-depressing-movie-syndrome. #fml

So, here is the movie that we watched…

(trailer link): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GNxdc-wlw4

(Movie link): http://www.gsmovies.com/movie.php?id=4432

I can’t even begin to explain the agony it has brought upon me. Read the synopsis on wikipedia if you don’t wish to see it, but it was so touching. Basically, long story short, “A young widow discovers that her late husband has left her 10 messages intended to help ease her pain and start a new life.” – (IMBD)

Now, during the movie when I was with my boo, I didn’t cry so much…I don’t know I guess the actuality of it all didn’t hit me until a little after, when I got home.

I guess the thought of it all. I think it him me pretty hard, because the main protagonist and her husband reminded me a lot of my boyfriend and I. I mean, just the arguments they have, the kind of things she’s worried about in the beginning, and just in general their experiences, somehow I can really connect with them, and all that happens in the movie just really touches me where I feel it the most… if that makes sense.

I was talking to my friend about it, and she reassured me saying that my bf won’t die or anything and not to worry… but I guess it’s not even just that. Or… maybe it is? I don’t know. Just the thought of it all… really gets me depressed, even though the movie technically has a happy ending, it’s not like he comes back to life, right?

It also gets you to think… life is really unfair. And you start getting kind of paranoid at all the things that could possibly go wrong in your life. I just felt super in despair after the movie ended; almost as if… as if I just didn’t know about anything anymore.

“We’re so arrogant, aren’t we? So afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. We don’t realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn’t drive you to commit murder or doesn’t humiliate you beyond repair.”

The above is a quotation from the movie that a character says upon spying an old couple together happily. I guess, you could say I’m like that too. I often envy old couples in love, because it…gives me hope in a sense. Gives me something to hang on to, a beacon of hope if you will. I guess you could say, in this messed up world where people are always giving up on each other, when I see two people who have gotten through the hard times, put up with each other through each others shit and were able to stay together through thick and thin, I feel super warm inside. Almost like jelly.

I think if I ever were diagnosed with a terminal illness, I would do the same. Well, not exactly but the same concept; leaving little tidbits of me. But unlike Gerry, I would be terrified; terrified of being forgotten. I guess in that way I’m very selfish and self-centered, but I could not stand for my loved ones to forget about me and replace me…it would just be too much, the thought of it even.

This has just been a night full of deep thought and heartache. I guess it’s arguable that I think too much, and I need to loosen up a bit, but I truly don’t know what to say or think or feel at this moment in time. I just needed to blog it out, and so here I am.

The movie itself, I really loved. I think it’s such an amazing movie and it touched me to the core; the amount of love this man had for this one woman, the things they endured even after death; the reality the movie touches upon. They did such a good job of portraying such a difficult turmoil and I simply can not recommend this movie enough; it may bring me a night filled with tears, depression and provoke my over thinking, but it is definitely something I would watch again. It’s just one of those super memorable, super thoughtful movies! Something like 8/10 for me in terms of numerical ratings!

I’ll end this blog post off with a quote that really touched me… it’s basically the quote that almost ends the movie/the letters she receives:

“Dear Holly, I don’t have much time. I don’t mean literally, I mean you’re out buying ice cream and you’ll be home soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you. It isn’t to go down memory lane or make you buy a lamp, you can take care of yourself without any help from me. It’s to tell you how much you move me, how you changed me. You made me a man, by loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful… literally. If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you’re sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you’ll try to see yourself through my eyes. Thank you for the honor of being my wife. I’m a man with no regrets. How lucky am I. You made my life, Holly. But I’m just one chapter in yours. There’ll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don’t be afraid to fall in love again. Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends. P.S. I will always love you. “

Please, don’t tell me that didn’t make you cry. I am actually crying as I type, my tears are dripping into my keyboard, what if my laptop water logs….

Thanks for reading. If you haven’t already, hope you decide to give the movie a watch!…

Frump-Kute le Rina

28 Jan

Soooooooooo….I’ve recently become quite into オバカワ…(Oba-kawa) fashion. I guess you could say it’s a trend? Granny-cute, frump-cute whatever 🙂 I think it’s adooooorable!

So, one of my friends sold/gave me her oxford style shoes (I was VERY mad excite!!) and I tried them out today!! (With the clothes and thigh high socks like I want to wear them) I was sooo happy! I’ve been looking for oxford-style shoes with heels for awhile now, and it’s interesting because I see them everywhere in flat styles, but not heeled. When I finally got my hands on a pair, I nearly collapsed in happiness juice.

^Please ignore my cankles… T_T I’ve finally started working out again, so they should be gone in awhile…. teehee.

I was really contemplating what outfits would go well with these shoes. I know scholar-style and frump-kute style would probably look great with such cute shoes… so I tried putting together what I had in my closet and seeing what fit! 🙂 I actually came across a lotta outfits, but only decided to take a pic of one.

 

WARNING: Please excuse the very amateurishness of my photos. I took them myself with self-timer and…it was my first time LOL. Next time I’m getting Mr. Leo to help me take them!! I swear he will become an expert photographer LOOL  

^….ignore face please and thighs LOOL. Okay, I know you prob think this is a very plain outfit 😛 But I thought it was cute. Why? Let me list the factors:

1) The top is a cute oversized knit-style sweater that my grandfather in Japan bought me ❤ 🙂

2) I’m wearing thigh high socks. What’s not cute about that please?

3) The shoes are cute okay.

4) Bare legs even though it’s winter?? Plus some cute points and hard-working points there 🙂 (yeah I know I don’t actually show my bare legs in the winter 😦 Canadian winters are TOOOO cold! Can’t be that vain)

And so, the kamhoing began! mrow.

^Am I mysterious or what??

^Actually I’m a happy happy little chicka.

^Actually, I have back problems 🙂 teehee

^Well lookie here, we got ourselves a bipolar. I put my hands up in the air sometimesssss.

no?

 

^…..I’m obviously a spy.

^Actually nope. I’m just a happy Kat :3 Look at that smile on my face guys LOOOL What am I so happy about you ask? I don’t actually know.

Sooo here’s some face shots, because I love kamhoing with my itouch LOL It’s a renowned hobby of mine :3

^I look psyched out. Kind of. Or….no I just have this creepy dolly look on my face I think MROW

^Oh well Rina, that’s a little better! Seems a bit more chipper :3

^well hi there, Sir chinks-a-lot. Tell me, what time do those eyes of yours open? Oh…never? #sadtimes

 

Let’s add some random accessories to the outfit! Start of with fake glasses!! I don’t care if you think it’s lame that they don’t have lenses. Lol please don’t be jealous ’cause you can’t pull them off like I can 😛 mrow.

^Do I look like a shy scholar-girl? 🙂

^I’m a little bit of a trouble maker~ 🙂 mrow

^Here’s a normal smile 🙂 I find that red lipstick and these glasses go quite well together. What do you think? ^^

 

Next lets try a hat… a white hat! 🙂

^I don’t really like this hat actually 😦 It’s too short and slips off my head and makes my head static-y! Not so nice, especially since I suffer from enough static from the knitted sweater….

And lastly… LETS ADD A SCARF! 😀

^….is it just me or do I look like I have a batwing LOOOL FML! Thighs… Y U NO LOOK SKINNIER FROM THE SIDE ??? 😦

That’s it for today guys! It’s actually exam week and I took the time to do this…’cause I was bored LOL.

Gonna study with the boo tomo and Sunday though! So he better be prepared! haha 🙂

^My failed attempt at winking ;)…. #closeenoughguy.jpg

Some online window shopping! Maid costumes ahead~

18 Nov

So…if you aren’t interested in pretty clothes or me, feel free to close the tab because you will be extremely bored with this post LOL.

So, basically, I’ve decided that instead of being sensible and finishing some homework this Friday night, I would do some online window shopping. One day my dears, I will have enough money to afford all these wonderful luxuries (all before I hit 25 of course) and be very happy. Until then, I will oogle at these beautiful pieces of glory through the screen of my laptop. :’)

I’ve included all the links for those who wish to purchase these things for themselves :). Hey, just ’cause I can’t get them doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! #imsonice LOOL

#1 Liz Lisa’s Floral Poncho!

http://lizlisa.jp/shop/liz-lisa/%E8%8A%B1%E6%9F%84%E3%83%9D%E3%83%B3%E3%83%81%E3%83%A7/item/view/shop_product_id/894

Obviously that isn’t me -.- but yeah I took it off their site 🙂 IS THIS NOT THE CUTEST PONCHO EVER?? This on the Liz Lisa site is 12,390 Yen (about 130 bucks Canadian dollar). I’m sorry if I sound cheap, but I can not afford that :(. And so, being me, I tried to look online for a rep of this. I actually found one very similar on http://www.minimaos.com/ which looked like this:

Quite similar right? This one was at about $50 USD, and I was actually about to purchase it. Then I realized, this is an asian site, and so the shipping rates must be super high for Canada 😦 I then checked; Canada isn’t even on the list (you have to request it) and shipping to the US is like $28USD…. So I therefore conclude, if I was to get a rep for like…$80(50+shipping) I might as well get the real thing. Which of course I can’t. And so I’ve decided I’ll just move on.

Leopard Print Tube Dress. Mmmm.

http://www.wholesale7.net/goods-2071-China+Cheap+Clothes+Sexy+Slim-fit+Tube+Dress.html

Okay, so I  actually saw this like…2 years ago I think on this site, and always wanted it but never felt I could pull this off :x. Now I want ittttt! It’s like $5 USD, but with shipping its a bit more. (They inflate their shipping A LOT to compensate for their low prices).  I’m thinking of maybe getting it…but then again, when would I ever wear it? When I go bar hopping in Tokyo next summer? LOL

#3

Knitted Cream Colored Poncho!

http://www.wholesale7.net/goods-14598-Winter+Style+Lady+Cap+Petals+Sleeve+Bats+Sweater.html

Okay, so after my obsession with the floral poncho, I decided to creep wholesale7 for a poncho in general. I didn’t get any “poncho” results, but did find this, very cute top! I love it in the cream color but apparently it comes in pink and black as well. This looks perfectly warm for the cold winters, so I’m actually considering buying this. I mean, I can actually afford this one too LOL. It’s about $9USD + shipping (which would probably be about $10 extra). The only thing is, I really have no idea how the quality is… orz

#4

Pretty Dresses o:

http://www.wholesale7.net/goods-14404-Graceful+Big+Bowknot+Sweet+Princess+Tube+Dress.html

Okay. Again, I probably won’t get either because of the “quality” issue, but then again I might, just to camwhore with it. I fell in love with these dresses on the site, and just couldn’t decide: pink or black? Pink might look more innocent and kawaii, whereas black might give me that air of mystique and sexyness I lack. Hmmmm…. *ponders*. Both are like $9 USD (+ shipping, about an extra $10?). Should I get one? Which one? mroww.

Okay. That’s about it for now. Not about to get greedy. I actually only want the ponchos right now. And the dress. Okay whatever, I’ll get those and continue saving money 🙂 I wanna shop till I drop when I’m in Japan next summer! Also, maybe if we go to HK or Malaysia, I can shop there tooooo! 😀 Very excited (^_^)’

To end off, I would just like to show you guys my maid costume mrow :3

That was for Halloween my dearies. I don’t wear this on a regular basis unless someday I have a maid fetish husband. LOL

Thanks for reading! 🙂 I love you guysss!
