I thought the past two sunny days were here to stay since Chinese New Year is approaching in less than two months’ time. I was wrong. It began to rain again this afternoon. Could feel the cold sipping into my old bones. Can’t seem to handle cold that well anymore. Actually, given my body’s natural (extra!!) heat insulation, everyone would think I would fair better in colder climate but no.
Been having bouts of fitful sleep again. Cannot watch too many movies before going to bed. Can’t believe that I actually watched about 10 movies in a week! Went to the cinema 2x last week and the rest, on tv or on the computer. Movies to recommend? Trance, Captain Phillips (Thanks Mei!) and Hunger Games – Catching Fire.
Also been reading for a bit. I got the book, Battle Hymns of a Tiger Mother from MPH because it costs only RM10 at MPH warehouse. Finished reading it in less than 2 weeks. Simple, funny and straight forward. I didn’t go to BBW sale because I haven’t even start reading the books I bought two years ago! Except the series on The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. I tried watching the series based on the story books as well but they are not as interesting as the book. If I remember correctly, the last book I read from Alexander McCall Smith is, the Good Husband of Zebra Drive… half of it. Let me think where did I left the book? My memory is failing me.
I am still stuck on Murakami’s 1Q84. Maybe I find the prose is a bit too monotone for me this time. I have read 1/3 of it. I guess I shall try to read the other 2/3s later on.
Oh.. reading on the tablet is not a good idea after all. Better stick to paperbacks. I think my astigmatism probably gotten worse now. I couldn’t do without the spectacles now. Shadows on things and people seemed much more prominently out of focus now. I better get my eye sight checked.
