    Watching Sci-fi Film

    I was focusing on revising my drama screenplay “Lost Son,” then the lights suddenly went out not long ago. I couldn’t edit my script when there’s so little light since it’s not good for my eyes. I must then watch a film instead. I have always wanted to see “Blade Runner 2049.” So I must take this opportunity to watch it. But I’m not sure if I could watch it till the end tonight. I have to get up early tomorrow to do lots of things, and to continue to rewrite my drama manuscript. This film is very long, by the way. So I’m not sure if I could manage to finish it tonight. I will begin to watch it, anyway. Then I will see how far I can go.

    I love sci-fi movies besides horror and comedy, and sometimes drama and romance. I just like watching good films. That’s all. I have seen lots of sci-fi films. I even consider making sci-fi films in the future myself. I have a strong interest in science, computer games (although I don’t play games that much since I’m not that young no more), past & future, time travel, mystery, and the like. I think, it’s quite interesting how we utilise our imagination to the fullest extent to visualize how it would be like if there is another world like us, another dimension, another galaxy, another life, etc. Or maybe, there is heaven & hell even. The possibilities are endless when we don’t really know whether the things we envision actually exist or not. It just remains a mystery for years to come or, perhaps, for eternity.

    That’s why the unknown just fascinates me to some degree. Do we never get to know the answers? How long do we have to wait and do the research until we unlock the truth? Or maybe, it is best that way that we know nothing about the things we don’t know.

    Notting Hill

    I rarely go to Notting Hill. But today, I had something to do around the area, so I just walked around Portobello Road Market for a short while. Then I saw this shop (photo below) that was the same shop used in the film Notting Hill, which Hugh Grant was the owner of it in the film. I then needed to take a photo of it. It’s now a gift shop. Or, maybe it’s always a gift shop and they just changed it into a bookstore in the film. I don’t know. Anyway, it’s the first time that I noticed this shop in Portobello Road. Maybe because I usually go to Portobello Road during the weekends when it’s busy and there’s a lot of stalls and people. So, you can’t really see this shop. Today is Tuesday, so it’s quiet in Portobello Road, therefore I saw this shop for the first time. It felt quite special when I walked past the shop since I could recognise it from the film Notting Hill. The film is a classic. You can watch it again and again. I think.

    Morning Rain

    The rain is pouring down like crazy, which I like it. I normally don’t like rain if I have to walk around in the city or have to go to work. But when it rains in the morning and I am off work, then it’s okay. Where I live is also quite idyllic. The rain therefore revitalises a dull Sunday morning and adds something extra special to the already calm surroundings. I don’t plan to go anywhere today since I have lots to do. So I don’t mind the rain. So if it rains all day, then it is fine with me. One good thing of living close to the nature is that when it rains like this, you feel so peaceful, full of life and energy, and your creativity increases.

    I got up and made my coffee straight away. I have to start my day with a caffeine before I can, actually, begin my day. I also made some toasts with Red Leicester cheese and red onion for breakfast. It’s a simple early meal. But it tastes yummy. The combination of the red cheese and the red onion just creates a contrasting, delicious flavour. Now, I’m ready to start my day. There’s a lot of tasks that I have to go through today. It’s weekend. Thus, it seems like I’d be enjoying the day off. But, I’m far from it. I, actually, work 7 days a week. As an actor, writer, and a filmmaker I don’t think you really have a day off, especially when you are in the stage of establishing your career.

    Camden Market

    I decided to go to Camden Market today. I always think of lots of possible places to go. But I often end up going to Camden Market, anyway. Next time, I promise myself to go somewhere else. There’s a lot of people at Camden Market today as usual. Well, because the weather was nice as well. I walked around and had Thai/Asian food for lunch. I don’t really buy clothes from Camden Market. I think, they are quite expensive and there isn’t any that I really like. If I want to buy vintage clothing, then I go to Spitalfields Market, Brick Lane Market, and Portobello Road Market instead. Camden Market is more for food lovers, I think. There are lots of jewellery as well. Too many that I couldn’t decide what to buy. I will have to go back another day and take my time to try them on.

    Vintage Markets

    It’s Saturday today. I feel like going to vintage markets around London. The sun was shining and all earlier this morning when I stood up. Now, the sun stops shining. But I still want to go out to take a break from my work for a while, and to experience something new. I might even get some new inspirations by going out and exploring new settings. I just hope it’s not gonna rain. No sunshine, no problem, just no rain. I have checked the weather forecast, and there will be no rain. But you never know. British weather can be unpredictable. Anyway, I have to go out. I might go to Portobello Road Market. It’s been a while since I visited it. Then, I might have some antique items home. I like buying vintage stuff. Not because they cost nothing. But because they are something rare and unique. I don’t like filling my home with lots of knick-knacks. But I like buying vintage fashion and jewellery. That’s what I walk around the flea markets for, to look for some cool second-hand clothing to add to my wardrobe.

    Good Horror Film From The 80s

    I have seen this film once The Hunger many years ago. It was very good. It’s also an 80s vampire film from 1983, matching the era of my own short horror/romance film “Blood Type O” and with similar genre. The film was stylistically made – very sophisticated. The colour grading, the editing, the tone & style, the pacing, the music, the plot, and everything was in perfect harmony. I think, I will watch it again tonight. Luckily, I have only watched it once. So I can barely remember it. I just know it’s a unique story and sad. So to watch it again is like seeing it for the very first time, which is good because then it’s more entertaining when you can’t quite recall the whole film. I am making an 80s horror film. So why not watch a good horror film from that decade? I have wanted to re-watch the film for a very long time. Now, it’s a good timing to do so.

    If you like David Bowie and vampire films and, of course, your love of the 80s, then you should check this film out. Enjoy!

    Perfect Body

    I want to have a perfect body. Purely because for my health. Having a healthy body means you are in good health. So I begin to exercise a lot and it gives a good result which I can see. I used to use size 12-14. Now, I can use size 8-10. So I’m very happy with it. Fitness also helps you stay energized all day. I used to feel very tired and sleepy during the day, especially in the afternoon. Now, I feel active throughout the day. I don’t feel like taking a nap or anything. I don’t eat much either. I only eat when my body does, actually, need food. I used to eat several times a day for nothing, even late night and before I went to bed. Now no more. I feel so healthy now. My stomach is also more flat than before, including a toned body. I have to maintain it from now on. I don’t want to go back to unhealthy body again.

    I am now down to size 10 or maybe 8 even from size 12 or 14.

    Handmade Cosmetics

    I’m blogging from my mobile. I have been working in front of a laptop all day long searching for a colourist-editor and a sound mixer. So now I’m exhausted. I can’t sit in front of a laptop no more. Luckily, WordPress has a mobile app which you can just blog on the app from your mobile – very convenient. I’m not that tired. But I don’t want to watch a film either. I don’t want to go to bed now either since I’m not tired. I must find something to do. I might look through my old recipes how to make serum. I like making my own skincare, using natural ingredients. I rarely buy skincare products. I use my own handmade cosmetics. When I’m running out of ingredients, I just go to shops around London to buy new ingredients. I know those shops well, and vice versa. Since I am their regular customer. I enjoy making my own natural skincare for my own use and as a hobby. It just brings me closer to the nature. Just the smell of natural ingredients makes me feel good already. Now I think I will make my new serum for younger looking skin. A small bottle containing 30ml of serum lasts about 1-2 months. I don’t like making too much at a time. I make small amount each time and use it up quickly. Then I make a new, fresh one after that.

    Sunday Outfit

    It’s Sunday today. I feel like dressing fabulously for the summer. Although I don’t go out much, too busy with my filmmaking project “BTO,” but dressing nice for the season at home can really make my day. I just don’t really have time for nothing else for the time being. Today will be a busy day for me as usual. I will continue my hunt for the colourist-editor and a sound mixer today. I drank beer yesterday which made me feel sleepy, so I didn’t resume my search for the remaining film crew. I knew it. I shouldn’t drink alcohol. Just one beer can hinder my productivity and slow me down. I will not drink alcohol at home from now on, not until my project is completely done. I will drink if I have to go out and socialise or network. I have to stay focussed. Otherwise, nothing can be done. So today, I will work hard again to bring my filmmaking project to an end. Then I can concentrate on something else.

    Dress to relax at home.

    Music Night

    Listening to music. When I want to relax, I turn to music not TV or films. I don’t even have a telly. Just music is enough for me. It entertains my soul better than television. I love watching movies, though. But I don’t like watching TV constantly. That’s why I got rid of the television set. I love music so much sometimes I doubt myself: Why do I want to be an actor not musician? But I love acting as much as I love music. I just don’t think I have the talent to be a musician. So, I’m happy to just pursue my dreams as an actress and a filmmaker instead. But some people do possess both skills. Just not me, which is fine ๐Ÿ™‚
