It's almost here!

13 February 2009

"That moment. That instant when your fingers curl round the handles of a shiny, uncreased bag - and all the gorgeous new things inside it becomes yours. What's it like? It's like going hungry for days, then cramming your mouth full of warm buttered toast. It's like waking up and realizing it's the weekend. It's like the better moments of sex. Everything else is blocked out of your mind. It's pure, selfish pleasure."
- Confessions of a Shopaholic
Sophie Kinsella

I know that it is difficult to do a movie version of a novel because our minds (and imaginations!) are still the best directors and I am almost always disappointed at how bad some movie versions are but I don't care. On February 18 (ugh why would it be shown here in the PI at such a later date? Why??) I'm gonna go to the nearest movie house and watch Confessions of a Shopaholic with my girlfriends! Ü

Rebecca Bloomwood was portrayed by Isla Fischer (as if you don't know that already!) . I don't like some of her outfits I saw on movie stills but I am still bracing myself for some major eye candy! ;)


  1. I wonder when its gonna show here in Jakarta. I keep my fingers crossed all the time :)

  2. Saw this at the premier night last night. No spoilers, basta watch the movie na lang. Relive the Sex and the City and Legally Blond moments. =)

  3. I love Isla! Ever since she were on home and away.. I havn't read the book. Should I?

  4. @ Andhari: it is now showing here in the PI! how about in there? do you now know when it'll be shown? Ü

    @ Badet: will watch it this weekend siguro. i'm excited!

    @ Carina: hmm, based on reviews i read, the movie veered away from the book. so you'll enjoy it more if you haven't read the book, me thinks Ü

  5. i've watched the movie! it came out yesterday (wednesday) here in dublin. you have got to watch it! it's super damn cute & hilarious. owh my hand's on hugh dancy. me first LOL.

  6. oh wow now i'm super excited to watch it :D
