I'm in love with this 1987 HK movie Rouge, starring Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung. As you may have guessed, this is one of the movies for FTVMS 205, one of the compulsory movies in fact. It's about Fleur (Mui), a courtesan in 1934 HK, who committed suicide with her lover, rich boy Cheng Pang (Cheung). When Fleur's spirit comes back to earth to meet Cheng Pang's to celebrate their death anniversary, she finds out that Cheng Pang is still alive. If you're familiar with Asian celebs, you know pretty damn well that both Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung are dead. They even died in the same year, 2003. Interestingly though, in their deaths the situation was reverse. It was Cheung who comitted suicide (jumping off one of Homg Kong Mandarin's top floors), while Mui died of cervical cancer. Notice how life imitates art? LOL.
Ah you. I shouldn't have said that. I forgot you loved watching people suffer.

Current word count: 1024. Plus there's a whole paragraph I need to delete and it contains 180 words. You do the math. I'm so gonna pull an all-nighter tonight.
You. My darling you. Have I ever told you it's not easy for me to get ever someone to whom I've given my softest spot? Well you might think I'm kidding but you don't need to be my best mate for ten years or my boyfriend to win a soft spot in my heart. So, there's still a room for you in my life. You can reclaim it however you like...How about popping in my house? 477A Manukau Rd. There. Don't tell me I never invite you...I just did it.
I love eggs. I love cheese. I love chicken. I love to eat. Yeps I do...while my appetite (holy smokes I've been misspelling this one word so far) enjoys being a homebody. It might leave on its occasional vacation soon...unannounced.
