Clueless is my all-time favourite teen movie. I watched it with a friend in 1995, on a day before our ‘O’ level exams, while other students were studying furiously, and we enjoyed it throughly. I was almost 16 when I watched it and now I’m almost 28, but no other teen film has ever matched up to this.

It’s basically Jane Austen’s Emma meets Beverly Hills 90210. I’d write a sypnosis, but you can find a much better one on Wikipedia.

The thing is, watching this show used to make me feel happy, but somewhere along the way, it began to make me feel sad as well. Why? Because it’s too fairytale and I know life’s never so perfect. Well, as least it has never been so perfect for me.

Am I becoming so jaded at the young age of 28? I want the innocent, naive me back!

But still, if you haven’t watched it yet, it’s a good show worth watching. They even have it on DVD nowadays. Go watch it!

Huan ying da di hui chun (welcoming spring back to earth)… so goes an evergreen Chinese New Year song.

┬áIt’s the 6th day of the golden Pig year today, and it has been a good year so far. 1st, I got several days of rest to do what I like: eating, sleeping, lazing around and watching TV. I even got to improve my typing skills with Spongebob and friends! Unfortunately I had to return the CDrom yesterday, so I couldn’t finish the whole “course” in time.

Blackie had a whale of a time on the 1st day, running round and barking at the relatives and getting tidbits from everyone. EVERYONE commented that she was very fat and that got me worried. However the little thing doesn’t seem to know that at all and persists in running to whoever is eating and putting on the “feed me” look. I dressed her up in a little “dress” I had made for her and she looked so sweet! She must have been tired out, cos by evening time she was sprawling on her bed looking exhausted and she slept all night.

On the 2nd day BC and I visited each other’s place. On the 3rd day we went to my auntie’s place where my maternal relatives were all gathered. Then on the 4th day BC and I went to watch “Just follow Law”, a file by Jack Neo. It was funny, esp when they made references to “smoke”, “arrows”, “cover backside”. The funniest part was Fann Wong dressed in what I shall describe as an “unusual” style, so as not to spoil the movie for those who have not watched it.

Then all too soon it was back to work… bleah…
