i’m on night shift this week. i started my day cooking breakfast. nothing extravagant. just fried some beef tapa. then watched a few olympics. i told hubby i wanted to watch my sassy girl (the american version). he asked me what it was about and i couldn’t exactly tell him. didn’t wanna spoil the ending. i just told him it’s a romantic-comedy. he couldn’t join me (although, i think he wanted to, cause his crush was starring in it — elisha cuthbert) because of his work so i went and watched alone (i really wanted to see this because i loved the original! one of my all-time faves, actually)
even if i didn’t understand a word of korean, i still liked the korean version better. I guess Jun Ji-hyun (not sure if I remember her name right) was feistier and funnier than elisha was. plus the lead actor (whose name escapes me right now) in the original version was way funnier than jesse bradford was. there were little comedic scenes in the english version as compared to the original. plus the scenes of jun ji-hyun’s imaginative stories are better in the korean/original version.
i would’ve loved to read the book also. but i don’t know how to read korean. hehe. i wonder if it has an english version too? hmmn.
went out last friday to celebrate my friend’s birthday. it’s been a while since my friends and i went out (the last time i saw redj was during my wedding, and glenn, i think about 2 years ago) and i really had a blast. when da mentioned that we go out to celebrate rhods’ birthday, i was kinda hesitant. i already made plans with my k-batches ruth & bel for a mani-pedi date days ahead. but since it’s been awhile since i’ve seen redj, i told da i’d get hubby’s permission first (he doesn’t want it if i sleep-over in someone else’s house). and when he agreed, and after i texted bel and ruth about rhods’ birthday, i happily told da to push through with the arrangements.
we went to grilla kalayaan (stopped over at national bookstore at powerplant first, and was soooo tempted to buy the latest marian keyes title). and it was way too late (after 2 buckets of sanmig light) when we learned that they were serving what they called “below zero” beer. what’s below zero? well, a bottle of a perfectly ice cold beer’s what it is. i promised hubby i wouldn’t drink that night. but because of their urging, i gave in and had a couple. a few minutes after rhods & i arrived, i remembered that we used to hate the place (service is soooo slow and the waiters are always out of sight! plus we kept on following up our orders!). but redj wanted a bar that was a little secluded (instead of the usual ortigas/makati (greenbelt) joints that we used to frequent) and so the decision to go to grilla.
it was great to see glenn and redj again! plus, glenn was extra generous that night and shouldered the bill ( i guess he was making up for forgetting the biscuits that he promised, hehe).
i guess our table was one of the loudest ones esp. when da was doing her usual funny antics again (which is what we sooo love about her, a gimik with her is definitely not dull).
rhods, da, redj and glenn —- when are we going to do it again? hehe
i got word from the store where i bought my monitor. it seems that the 3-week waiting period would be extended. according to them, samsung told them that they were still awaiting some parts before samsung could fix my monitor. waaahhh. and the worse part? they wouldn’t give a timeline on how long the wait could be. darn.
(p.s. da, nosebleed ito, pinuna mo kse na laging tagalog ang entries ko eh, hehe)
