Making Film With No Crew

posted in: Entertainment, Fashion, Film, Lifestyle, News | 0

That’s right. It’s me, Making Film With No Crew. It’s just a 10-minute short film. But, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes, actually. And it’s only me to take care of all these. It can be very challenging. But, I like challenges. So, it’s good enough for me. I do have lots of applications coming in regarding my short film. So, I will spend tonight going through them. The people I have shortlisted also have to send in self-taping auditions. And I will spend the weekend watching them instead. Everything looks good so far. I didn’t expect to get that many interests in the project. There are actors who apply for all roles. Therefore, I think, I have got enough people now. The next step is just to start shortlisting people. I can’t wait to get the camera rolling!

I try to add my products bit by bit every day. I have lots of items to add to my site. I can’t add them all at once. I need to work on my film project as well. So, at least I have added something daily, then it should be good enough. I like making jewelry, especially bohemian style. So, I have to continue with it. I also wear all of my products. I make for sale and for myself. So, I only make what I really like to wear myself. I spend time crafting each jewellery with care & love. The same with screenplay. I just want to add that extra care and passion into it.

Carbonara For Dinner

posted in: Food, Lifestyle | 0

I’m having carbonara for dinner tonight. It’s so yummy! Well, everything homemade is delicious, in my opinion. I like carbonara because it’s so easy to make but tastes super delicate. It takes me about 10 minutes to make with minimal ingredients. I don’t know why I don’t make it so often. The ingredients I need just are spaghetti (of course), chopped bacon, egg, parsley, salt & pepper. And that’s it. Then I cook the pasta, whisk the egg ready, fry the bacon ready as well, when the spaghetti is ready, drain, place it in a big bowl, pour the egg over, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, and bacon, mix everything together roughly, then my dinner is ready! It seems simple. But wait till you try it. It tastes incredibly good when you think of how easy it is to make, and it doesn’t need that many ingredients.

First time I got introduced to carbonara was through my friend’s boyfriend. He’s Italian, of course. They invited me for dinner. Then he told me, “Tonight, I’m going to make the simplest dinner that tastes so good which you will never forget.” And he was absolutely right. I have no idea why I had never tried carbonara before, until he made it that day. It’s just so popular. He even showed me how to make it the easiest way. And sometimes, he made garlic butter that tasted so homely. I could buy garlic butter anywhere, but nothing tasted like the one he made. My friend, she rarely cooked at all since they’re moving in together. And I could see why. And he seemed to like cooking very much. He always invited people home, so that he could cook for them. I guess, most Italian people are passionate about good food & cooking. Because, sometimes when he didn’t bother to cook he invited us to good Italian restaurant instead. He knew almost the best Italian restaurants in town. And he’s just a typical young man who I would never think of could be so passionate about cooking.

Wow, what a story! That’s how I got to know more of Italian food & culture. And one of the things I find it very special is that once they get to know you and regard you as friend, you’re like part of the family. And we always sat and ate and drank wine around the dinner table. Every day is a celebration. It’s one of those unforgettable times that will always stay in my mind.

I Love Fall

posted in: Lifestyle, Nature | 0

I am so in love with Fall. It’s the time of year when nature is so charming. I am bewitched by the sparkling, golden-brown color of leaves on the trees and on the ground, like a bed of beautiful, golden petals. They are everywhere, in the garden, in the park, etc. It’s just so romantic. I feel like, I am in a fantasy world full of all things magic and out of this world landscapes. I love summertime, too. But Autumn is something quite special. It talks to your soul, sparking a sense of calm and peacefulness. I want it to last forever. I wish the Autumn would stay for eternity. There should only be 2 seasons, Fall & Summer.

Shooting Scenes For my Short Films

posted in: Entertainment, Fashion, Film, Lifestyle | 0

Some scenes for my short films have already been shot today. What an accomplishment! I’m gonna make 2 short films simultaneously. I have only filmed some parts for one of them. I wanted to shoot some segments for another film as well today. But then, the time was getting late. I wanted to shoot a morning scene for another film. So, I have to shoot it another day instead. But, I have at least shot some sequences of one of the films. So, I have gotten something done today anyway. And that’s a good thing. I am making progress now.

I have even made some necklaces as well, to sell on my website, this blog, which will be available on my site soon. So, I have achieved lots of things today. It’s been a good day, indeed.

Tomorrow, I will work on set again. I have already packed, taken shower, checked time travel, set my alarm clock on, and so on. I am so ready. I like packing in advance. So, I am sure that I have plenty of time to pack, and that I have everything I need with me. If I began to pack in a hurry because I had not much time to pack such as just before heading out, getting up late I would forget something. That’s for sure. It did happen before. I have now learned, being well-prepared is the key in any job, to avoid mistakes as much as I can.


Christmas in London

posted in: Entertainment, Film, Lifestyle, Travel | 0

I just got home. The Christmas lights are all over London now. They look magical and imaginative. So many people were in town today, looking for presents for their loved ones, families, friends, and themselves. People were in high spirits. I wish people’re like this every day.

I have already finished my script. Actually, I have completed it a long time ago. But, I wasn’t sure about I want to use it. I have written many short stories, in fact. But, I didn’t think they are good enough to make short films out of it. Then, after I read this inspirational quote it dawned on me that I was wrong all along. I have wasted my time for several months waiting to create the perfect story. And therefore, I have not made my own films yet. And I could continue to wait, perhaps, for months or even years to come if I hadn’t discovered this quote. Sometimes, a quote, word, things you see, imagination, dreams, and so on, can really inspire you and make you create incredible art out of the blue.

I will polish the story I’m going to use tonight or tomorrow. Then I will start shooting some scenes already tomorrow. I feel so happy now. My short film could be finalized as soon as next week!

Fashion Blog

posted in: Entertainment, Fashion, Film, Lifestyle | 0

I changed the design of my website again. Because, I’m going to move my shop, Bohoforest, to here instead. Everything will be in one place from now on: My blog & my shop. So, my blog needs to reflect the fashion theme as well. I will also write more about fashion and jewelry in the future. So, this new style will look better for fashion blog, I think. The reason why I decided to move my shop to here is because I can’t make lots of jewelry constantly since I also have filming & writing jobs to do. And having an eCommerce site, you need to keep adding new products. It consumes so much of my time. I have to keep making new products, sending newsletters, updating social media profiles, and many many more. And that’s why I can never finish making my short film. It really gets in the way. I realize that now. So, if I sell my products on my blog instead as a hobby then I don’t have to spend so much time on it. I want to devote more time to film industry instead. So, I have to get rid of the things that slow down my creativity. I will start adding my products to my blog bit by bit from tomorrow. Then I have to start shooting my own film as well. I want to complete my short film as soon as possible. So, doing away with my other eCommerce site should help me finish my film faster now.

Go Send The Packages Again

I had some orders coming in last night. So, I have to go out and send the packages to my customers again today. Most of the orders are the things that are handmade, which I make them myself, except the rings, such as bracelets, chokers. Continued

Jewelry Making

posted in: Fashion, Lifestyle | 0

I decided not to go nowhere today, so that I could only focus on my film script writing. But then, I had got some orders coming in last night. So, I have to go out and send jewelry to customers first, then come back and continue to work on my screenplay. I sell more rings than any other jewellery. Maybe, I should only sell rings instead 🙂 All of the rings I had had were sold out. I have no more rings left to sell. I only have one style of ring left and only 1 set of it left. I have not ordered more bohemian rings since because I am focusing on making bracelets instead at the moment. Below is the ring set that I sell the most and now only have 1 set left:

Well, maybe I should order some more boho rings then. I don’t make rings myself. I make chokers, necklaces, and bracelets. The latter is something I just begin to introduce to people. So, it takes some time before people know that I also sell bracelets. I enjoy making them. I feel so excited having to wake up every morning to start making jewelry, wearing them, taking pictures, and posting them on my online store, Bohoforest. I feel even more delighted when someone orders it. Then I have to personally pack and send it to each customer all over the world. Now I will get ready to go out and send the jewels. The sooner I send to them the better. I don’t like waiting to send the orders. I want them to reach my customers asap. I put myself in their shoes: If I ordered something online I would, of course, enthusiastically wait for it to be delivered as soon as possible! I know the joy of opening your mailbox and a package of gift is waiting for you in there. How wonderful is that?

Below are the bracelets that I have just finished making them very recently and added them onto my online store, Bohoforest:
