Cloud Atlas

Freaking. Rules.

I have so much respect for the Wachowskis. So much respect for this crazy book that they adapted (I still can’t believe they pulled it off). So much respect for their vision and just everything. Oh my goodness. It didn’t feel like a 3-hour movie, not at all. It was so good. Now I want to go and re-read the book. Amazeballs.

NY Bagel

The last time I was here was in December 2007. It was the first time I learnt about the Baha’i faith, and it was the first time I’d had a serious-ish conversation with K. We sat in NY Bagel chatting for hours… such a long time ago.

This time, I sat in NY Bagel chatting for hours with q. We talked about everything – life, love, films, dreams, procrastination… It was great. I love hanging with her – we really do make great friends. I’m so glad our past is past, and I’m so glad we are still friends.

It’s strange how a place like NYB can’t survive in HK (I’m thinking Flying Pan, but it’s no where near as awesome as NYB). Oh well. I guess it just makes me look forward to my next trip to Taipei. Yup.

It’s been open for a while, but I haven’t had a chance to go and try. But today I did. The cakes are not as good as they were before (or so it seems) but the pastas and the food is good. I like. I really like these places where I can sit for hours and chat and no one will bother me. And it’s good to see familiar faces too – haven’t seen the staff in ages, and now they’re all back. I love it.
