New Bookish Necklaces

Weekend before last, my friend and I watched Les Miserables on stage in Singapore. I wanted to buy souvenirs but didn’t find anything I liked, which ended up being a good thing because I bought stuff from a movie memorabilia store in the same building as the theater instead. Here are my new bookish necklaces:

If only they worked on real life! I would love to be able to go back in time and to become invisible whenever I wanted to. Sigh, I have to made do with reality. But at least I can wear these the next time I have my bookish outfit on.

Have you seen The Hobbit?

Just a quick post to let you guys know what I’ve been up to this weekend. I watched the film adaptation of The Hobbit and loved it! It’s my first time to watch IMAX 3D (and 48fps too) here in Singapore and I think it’s definitely worth the 22 SGD that I had to pay for the ticket. Both Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage were amazing – all of the actors were but I just wanted to highlight those two because I loved both of them in BBC’s shows (Sherlock for the former and North and South for the latter). It was funny when the preview for Star Trek Into Darkness was being shown, all of us were wondering if we were in the right cinema. I just realized what the preview was about when Benedict Cumberbatch appeared – obviously, that’s another movie I’m excited about.

I wore my All Seeing Eye shirt from Threadless as well as my LOTR stamp pendant yesterday:

My flatmates also gave me this postcard set based on the film:

Isn’t it pretty? Sorry pen pals, I will definitely be keeping these postcards instead of sending them to friends. 😛 I had a friend who asked me to tell her if the movie is worth watching in cinemas or if she should just wait for it to come out in DVD. I told her she’s asking the wrong person. So what about you, have you seen the movie? If yes, what did you think of it? 🙂 If no, what are you waiting for? Here’s the trailer to remind you of what you’re missing:

It’s been years since I last read the book. Maybe I should reread it soon to refresh my memory?
