I used to be like Samantha, now I’m more like Charlotte

Sex & the city fever is back! the movie sequel is premiering soon in May and I know most of the women in the world are super excited about it including me.

Two days ago, I made my fiance watched sex & the city  the movie with me, he had not seen it before while I’ve seen it a few times (it’s in my laptop hard drive!), I always try to match myself with one of the character, don’t you all??

I used to be like Samantha, well of course not to that extreme. I used to be selfish in a relationship and put my self first before my partner in every way. Similar to Samantha, I liked to have multiple partners and not dedicate myself to one guy, I didn’t believe in marriage and not wanting children at all. Fashion wise, I liked anything sexy, low cut tops showing cleavage and tight clothes.

Charlotte vs Samantha

Suddenly everything changed in 2008. I met my now fiance in a bar in Melbourne called La La Land. I just broke up from a bad relationship and went out with two girls for a drink. Everything happened so fast, he didn’t mean to pick me up or anything like that, it’s just a coincidence that he sat next to me and we started talking. He’s got this sexy british accent and deep voice. We just clicked right away. Long story short, he asked for my number and we started dating, after 2.5 months we moved in together and the next month after that he proposed. It’s definitely love, and I’d never fallen in love before. I also changed from Samantha to Charlotte. I become less selfish and happily do things for him. I gave up what I was doing at that time in terms of career and education for him and moved to UK with him. I didn’t mind at all. I love him just the way he is, his imperfections which I find very attractive, I would have never tolerated on other men before I met him. I’m happy with just one man in my life now. I grew up and happy just like Charlotte.

The September Issue, opening the world of US Vogue

I was so eager to see the September issue, a documentary about the release of September issue of Vogue magazine. In the fashion magazine world, the September issue is the most important issue of the year.

It turned out to be really good… the documentary focus on Anna Wintour, US vogue editor in chief (the real life version of Devil wears Prada Miranda Priestly). Anna Wintour is an icon in fashion industry, respected but also feared by most people in the fashion industry, and although she’s the softer version of Miranda Priestly, she’s cool, firm and tough.

The documentary also shows there’s actually another woman behind the magazine who is as tough and stubborn as Anna Wintour. Grace Coddington is US Vogue’s Creative Director, a former model who is now one of the most famous fashion stylists in the world.

There’s a tension between Anna and Grace showed in the documentary, Anna is the Editor in Chief but it’s Grace who has the real artistic talent. Unlike the Devil wears Prada which focus on the cold hearted Miranda Priestly, September issue focus on the beauty of the fashion industry. The making of a fashion spread is like a making of a painting… clearly Vogue is a form of art.

One of my favourite scenes is when the camera is on Anna’s daughter, who does not want anything to do with vogue and wants to be a lawyer. The paris photo shoot is also amazing.

District 9, thumbs up or down?

We went to see district 9 two nights ago in the local cinema, YES local meaning small town cinema and only cost £5, but has good enough sound system and wide enough screen.

This movie is presented by Peter Jackson and based on Canadian based South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp’s short film ALIVE IN JOBURG, which you can see freely on the net. I haven’t seen the short film yet, but before we went to see it there was a coverage in BBC news about this movie showing the slums in South Africa which was the set of this movie. The movie is about the racism, immigration, violence and power in South Africa and it uses the aliens to represents the racism which in the movie were referred as ” prawns”.

The movie was shot in a documentary way which i like so much and the special effect is also good but honestly it was so gross that it made me sick throughout the movie. It has the typical mess of ghastly liquid and images.

I think this movie is great because it relates to humanity issue and using the alien as a metaphor is very smart.
