inside reverie of a girl who will always be in love with life.
I miss you terribly sometimes, but in general I go on living with all the energy I can muster. Just as you take care of the birds and the fields every morning, every morning I wind my own spring. I give it some 36 good twists by the time I’ve got up, brushed my teeth, shaved, eaten breakfast, changed my clothes, left the dorm, and arrived at the university. I tell myself, “OK, let’s make this day another good one.
—Haruki Murakami (Norwegian Wood)

Universe is a cruel comedian, apparently it attempt to make a bad joke with my life.
Have you ever want the time to freeze until you can figure out what your heart want?

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notice on downtown post or billboards, no mention or advertisement in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it is not.
I wish they never make a movie from this book. I had wonderful time imagine the world inside the circus that no real movie can possibly illustrate that. As much as I love the elaborate magical world pictured in the book, some plot do feel undeveloped. And I’ll be love if there’s more explanation about the magic or simply the background of the competition. Regardless all that, thank you for giving me a new world to escape from reality.
Wish this is a setting for my dream every night (apparently I’m on “green” phase)
sunshine and hanging plants make every space looks gorgeous

Quarry Garden | Shanghai Botanical Garden
Landscape Architecture: THUPDI & Tsinghua University, Beijing
Location: Songjiang District, Shanghai, China
This project is so gorgeous because I think the design perfectly blended into the natural landscape. And for what I see in the photos, the finishing project looks amazing considering the place was deemed difficult for construction. I will love to visit this one day.
Music’s the only thing that makes sense anymore, man. Play it loud enough, it keeps the demons at bay.
Across The Universe (2007) | Julie Taymor
I don’t usually hear other musician covers The Beatles songs, because they’ve done such an amazing job with their music so every cover of it will be sounds pale in comparison. But I do enjoy the music on this movie and really love it when Bono sings ‘I am The Walrus’. I think this movie is tailor made for hardcore The Beatles fans, just don’t be a snob and you can appreciate those little details they throw in the movie. On some parts they make reference to The Beatles songs or using the lyrics as dialogue. And it’s fun trying to guess which song they take it from.
Long-lost Polaroids shot by Andy Warhol from 1970 onward — initial reference points for his coveted silk prints. These shots of Tina, Liza Minnelli, Diane and Diana, Yoko and John, Dolly, Debbie and Andy himself are only a handful of over 150 found in neglected archives.

“For Daisy was young and her artificial world was redolent of orchids and pleasant, cheerful snobbery and orchestras which set the rhythm of the year, summing up the sadness and suggestiveness of life in new tunes. All night the saxophones wailed the hopeless comment o the ‘Beale Street Blues’ while a hundred pairs of golden and silver slippers shuffled the shiny dust. At the grey tea hour there were always rooms that throbbed incessantly with this low, sweet fever, while fresh faces drifted here and there like rose petals blown by the sad horns around the floor.”
The Great Gatsby (2013) | Baz Luhrmann
This is the movie that I’ve been waiting for. And I’m not disappointed by it. Although I do realize that this one is been very polarize for people, some said this is a great one while other said it’s sucks. The costumes are GREAT, as a big fan of Jazz age era, I do want every costumes in this movie. And then there’s the music, when I saw the trailer I was a bit perplexed how can you make a movie about Jazz age with a rap song. But then when I watch the movie it’s completely makes sense. Gatsby’s party supposed to be decadence, shocking and a bit surreal. As jazz for that age, but over the years jazz image kinda soften up and become more sophisticated than decadence. So yeah it’s good decision Mr. Luhrmann. And there’s of course Carey Mulligan as Daisy, I do believe she’s perfect as Daisy, the reckless childlike attitude with romantic perceptive and faux innocence. She has it all. Daisy is not a monster, she just a realistic woman. Tom loves her for what she is, albeit he’s a cheater and an asshole while Gatsby only see her as some sort of idolized version of what he wants in life. I’m pretty sure Daisy and Gatsby relationship will be completely falling apart if they really runaway together.
I just don’t care about roses and blings. Or all those sweet talks and serenade. Just promise me to always give me the truth.
