Meryl Streep: Miranda
Anne Hathaway: Andy Sachs
Went to see this movie a few nights back and I've got to say that it was one hell of a great movie. The movie was hillarious yet tells so much.
The movie was about a small town girl, Andrea, who landed a job in one of the worl'd leading magazine, Runway. She was hired hired as an assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine. As they call it, she landed a job “a million girls would die for.” The film shows much about the high fashion world. As the story goes, Andy, who have no idea or passion about fashion finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym.
All in all, the moview show what a competitive world it is....how selfish people are and care for noone else but himself/herself.

What happen to the beauty with brains?
I believe that this "Vote for me" Miss World title started from last year. Even last year, I wondered whose idea it was for this voting thing.
Last year, do you remember the final question asked to the Korean. She's beautiful, sweet and could've been crowned the Miss World. But how she handled her final question.....whew.....
If I am not mistaken, I think she was asked "What will you do if you become Miss World?" or something like that.
Then she said, "If I become Miss World,.." then smile sweetly...."If I become Miss World...." smile sweetly again..then again ...."If I become Miss World...." and dont remember how she finally finish her answer. I think she could recall a few sentences that she had by-hearted earlier. Yes, she is Asian and I was hoping that she'd win.
I miss those old days when the Miss World was still beauty with brains. I still remember when Aishwaria Rai becomes the Miss World 1994. I was in hostel and we were allowed to watch the show. The confidence, the intelligence sure shine out.

I wonder if the beauty/fashion world gone crazy to say that this woman is beautiful..duh!! I will never ever ever agree with this. Take a close look at the pics and tell me what is good there....eyes - very wide and there is nothing there. Lips - Again, too wide plus she did a bottox too. Her chin - too thick....the combination of her face struction, eyes, nose, lips, etc etc does not work at all.
What's your opinion?

I took an unnecessary leave on Saturday....reason - Have to go to airport...blah blah blah (all crap).
So, I slept during the day and I felt quite weak. I was asked whether I wanted to go out or not which I decline. I stayed home, of course.
Stayed home doing nothing special - watching TV, hoping for a good program to show up. Then I started to cook. A friend called quite mad at me for not telling him that I was free (bleh). I cooked and continue to watch TV. Finally cooked rice at around 3 AM and me and my room mate had our dinner (?).
I was a bit sleepy but my thoughts were like - Since I am suppose to go to office at night, I will sleep during the day, at usual time (10:30m - 11). So, I started cleaning up the house.
Then, continue to watch TV. I was so bored with TV, I sarted reading - Realm of Death..it became pretty interesting and so I read on and on.
Then come 11:00 AM and told myself 'Just one more chapter' and contimue. Then 12 noon finally come aqnd thinking that I am to get up at around 17:30, I closed the book, put down my glass and and closed my eyes.
After tht, I tossed, turned....wheww...why is so hard to fall asleep. Then I looked at the time from my cell and it was almost one. Knowing how limited time I have, I gave another effort...aaahhhhh...all my sides hurts now...gawd..what am I gonna do at work???
Finally at 2, I started to feel sleepy and would've dozzed off by 2:30.
Then, I heard that irritating sound of my alarm ....uuuggghhhh....I need more sleep :((. So, I thought just another 30 mins...but before that 30 mins up, I got a phone call. The call was from my sister's colleague who brought my room curtain. I got up and went for usual evening walk.
After reaching home from my walk, head to the bathroom to have my bath. To my horror, I found the two sheets which I kept for washing...huh...
So, after everythuing done, I took bath and then went out from the bathroom. Then I checked the time. That was when I realized that I set the alarm set at 15:30 and not 19:30....gggrrrrrrrrr...this is crazy. If I am to go back to sleep, then its a bi late and too early to dress up for office. Luckily, my roommate was up and we chat for sometimes...then I continue reading the novel again.
So, when 19:30 comes, I had some noodles and then I dressed up. Then I waited for my cab and wait and wait....then comes 21:00. I thought that I should've had my pick up by now. So I called up one of my regular cab mates and asked about the cab..then called up the office.
It was 21:20 by that time and then I was told that the cab was late and so I must wait...when I secretly wished that the cab left without me. At around 21:40, the cab finally came....2 more pickup nearby...then head to the office.
Reached office bt 22:50...wheh..what a day/night....luckily there's no much work tonight and so no probs in dozzing off. That's the best part of going to office on weekends - no work :)

- A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
It felt so good and now I can't help but love that place *sigh*

Ok, so I do not have momory of my infant, but then I remember my after a m 3 (I believe)
Since my sisters already attended schools, I used to stay home with my mom who used to weave those days. I'd lye around her tools and got nothing better to do. Though my friends has not yet attended schools, we were still too young to play outsite alone. So, all we could do was stay home the whole day, eagerly waiting for our elders to come home from school.
Now that I've mentioned life in Kolasib, I remember when I and Lalkuki (lol) smoked several Mizo cigarettes (zozial). Her mother used to prepare those zozial and used to sell them. Those days, I believe there used to be 12 or more in one package and cost Re.1. It so happened that Lalkuki and I were alone in their house and started smoking those zozial. I cannot recall the number of sticks I have taken but all I remember was that we were very very high from that tobacco that we could not even light anymore though we tried really hard. Funny...I still remeber that dizziness so well.
Then we were caught. Since we find it so hard to light one more (we smoked inside the room), we shifted near the door. After mauch attempt, we failed miserably. That was when we realized that our mothers were watching the whole scene and waiting for us to give up.
After that, all I could remember was my mother taking me home and the next thing I know was that I was sleeping next to my grandmother who took care of me the whole time. No one scolded us for that incident but my father loved making joke out of that.
(Opps..need to go..will continue with this flashback)
