Slow week end for us. Ting is not feeling very well and the medication she is taking is making her kind of stoned... She didn't take it on Sunday thankfully
We went to the cinema Friday night to see the best film of the century, I'm not kidding. The title is "Welcome to the sticks".
It did the most entries of all films ever in France. It's produced by this French humorist called Danny Boon. Oh, and the title in French is "Bienvenue chez les ch'tis".
I was surprised to see that the cinema wasn't completely empty, and no, not only French people. I was even more surprised that people (Ting and Rachel her sister) had fun. They were laughing for some of the jokes. Of course the subtitles couldn't render the accent at all, and when they spoke about "les meubles sh'est les shiens" "Les chiens?!!", "Non, les shiens, pas les kiens"... The subtitles were on about something about fish and the offish and fishcats.... I was too busy laughing to really read it all. And only 3 of us in the theatre were laughing... At least it showed these Singaporeans that French can make good films, and not necessarily full of naked women (that's why most teenagers see French films in Singapore: because you usually get to see at least some tits... But the really good scenes are always censored). They even censored some of the scenes in the ch'tis.
That was for Friday night.
Saturday we went to the Mandarin Oriental, the hotel which is going to hold our wedding! I put some pictures in Picassa. This one is the main room, called the "Garden Suite".
Then dinner at a Brazilian restaurant called "Carnivore" in Chijmes. Free flow of meet all night long. I thought my belly was going to explode when I left the table. I was feeling sick all night after. On Ting's side, she was better off because her jaw started hurting quite soon preventing her from over eating. She carried me home...
As for today, the Singaporeans already know it rained all day long... So Ting and I stayed home did some house work. While Ting was ironing I was hoovering and cleaning the bathroom, really a fun day... But as my beloved was saying in her last post, if you enjoy doing your chores, they're not chores anymore, and I did almost enjoy myself as I was sweeping all the dust from the floor. Seriously, I can't wait to get a maid...
