85th Academy Awards

(All photos in this post taken from Tumblr)

Previously, I've never watched the Academy Awards from start to end. I just wasn't that interested I suppose. I watched this year's though, and although I heard last year's was much better, I still thought it was pretty good.

Amanda Seyfried looked so so so beautiful in her Alexander McQueen dress:

I really, really did not like the host but what can go wrong with JGL and Daniel Radcliffe?!

(JGL especially):

I loved it when the men in The Avengers went onstage to present an award:

The Les Mis cast performance brought me to tears (Aaron freaking Tveit c'mon) (Samantha Barks looked gorgeous) :

Daniel Day Lewis has such a sweet smile and his acceptance speech for Best Actor was so witty, heartwarming and great:

(3:03 onwards)

"I really don't know how any of this happened. I do know that I've received so much more than my fair share of good fortune in my life"

"At the apex of that human pyramid there are three men to whom I owe this and a great deal more: Tony Kushner, our beloved skipper Steven Spielberg and the mysteriously beautiful mind, body and spirit of Abraham Lincoln"

And these photos of Best Actor & Actress and Best Supporting Actor & Actress are all kinds of amazing:

And the highlight of the whole show for me was Ben Affleck's acceptance speech when Argo won Best Picture:

"You have to work harder than you think you possibly can. You can't hold grudges, it's hard, but you can't hold grudges. And it doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, 'cause that's gonna happen. All that matters is that you gotta get up"

That's going to keep me going for a long time.

Maybe I'll start watching more award shows in the future,
and post pointless posts about them after.

get teenage kicks right through the night

Lost count of the amount of times I've watched this video.

Spent the last two weeks in London and Paris. The trip to Paris was extra special for me - it was my third time there, but my first time seeing the Eiffel Tower. Sure, it's just a steel building, but it was so so beautiful, especially at night.

Sparkly lights for five minutes every hour at night. So pretty

Now I'm back home. Going to Singapore later today and will be back on Sunday. That's four countries in two weeks, pretty big deal for me, wow. I'm truly, truly blessed. Insya Allah, this will happen more often in the future.

Also, I love long flights because of the in-flight entertainment. Like, I get to watch all the movies I was too lazy to download myself hahaha. I watched 5 movies on the way back and cried watching every single one - thing is, they were all romcoms hahahaha

Really enjoying life after SPM so far. I mean, it's been pretty chill which is great. Plus, I'm so glad I already have my license, even though I haven't started driving on my own yet. As days pass by the closer we are to SPM results. Less than a month, damnit. I'd rather not know my results because I'm almost sure I'll be disappointed with how I did. It makes me so sad every time I think about it, but I can't not think about it. Which sucks.

Back to work

Monday, February 11

I thought I lost my phone in the plane so I got up and panicked, looking for it in the dark. The old man sitting behind my grandma woke up and realised what I was doing, so he got up and searched for it with me, looked for it under the seats and all. Then he switched on the light and I noticed something. He didn't have a right hand.

So amazing how some people go out of their way to help others.

Friday morning thoughts ☺

Steven has also said things to me in private that I will never forget, about things that have happened and things that I can do here. These are conversations that players have. People don't hear them but they are so important. They make a difference to a person like me, to my career and my life. The ones we had are private but say everything about him. Steven has given me motivation to carry on and do well with what he has said. He has helped me hugely.
I love you Suarez. I love you Gerrard. I love you Liverpool :(

"He will get fired out of a cannon, won't he, when he leaves City?"

Not a fan of Manchester City, but their YouTube uploads are so entertaining and this is probably one of my favourites so far. So sad. Definitely going to miss seeing him play in England.

Ah well. Have a lovely February, everyone! I have a good, good feeling about this month
