  1. I actually watched Friends too many times myself. Sometimes when some events happened similar like a scene, I remembered it and the quotes and couldn’t help but laugh.

    I’m not familiar with Xavier Dolan.

    Actually, Tom Hiddleston is cute!

    The food and drink you posted seems yummy!

    Thanks for the award :)

    • LOL! I know! I think i grew up with the series and i used to spend hours with my sisters having friends marathon, its just a fun sitcom :D

      Hehe, Xavier Dolan is fairly new i guess, i’ve made a special post about him to be published next month :D

      Hiddles is cute! and adorable~! and british! *penting*

      they are quite yummy, i’m actually craving for the mexican chicken salad now, tortillas and baked beans >_<

      you're welcome :D

  2. Hey, thanks for tagging me along. You enjoy Alire Saenz? Some latino you got here..but I prefer his poems though :) Perhaps you also dig Gabriel Garcia Marquez i reckon..

    • You read Saenz too? I’ve only read 4 of his books and those are the fictions ones, but his prose are just so beautiful like poetry anyways… I know he wrote poetry too but i haven’t got a chance to check it out, maybe next time i can order the poetry book.. any recommendation perhaps?

      i have never read Gabriel Garcia Marquez, yet! I’m planning to read his 100 years of solitude, it’s been on my to read list forever but i havent get round to it >_<

  3. Awwwww, my first nomination for the love of my life a.k.a movie!
    I don’t have many movieblogger friends, I mean, as far I know, some of them in the hiatus phase, we love writing movie but keep doing something that you love is definitely hard thing
    Anyway, I’ll do liebster and sunshine, hope I could do it soon, love ya!

    • Hey :) I’m not really knowledgable as well but to simplify it, style refers to physically designed things in a film: props, costume, vfx, cinematography. While substance is the gist of the film itself. Think of Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby (style) vs linklater’s Before trilogies…

  5. Pingback: I Got The Liebster and Sunshine Award(s), yay! | Movietard and Her Moviegasm

  6. Thanks for tagging me, lass. Yet, i just cant do this during this hectic season. Hopefully, i will do this asap.
    The thing is: i dont have many movieblogger friends. And… I dont do the novels, i do the magazines, cause they’re cute :o

    • hahaha that’s okay :D i’m just doing it for fun anyway :D so why not right!
      (totally late replies! sorry!)
