Well,shall start off with my weekend programme. Seeing a movie had sort of becoming one of the trend for me right now,and romance story is something that i can’t go without..Here we are making a trip down to The Cathay to catch a thai movie(romance story) known as Me…Myself
Somehow or other,i do find this a touching story that worth watching it if you guys love romance story,do go for it…
The storyline is as below,,
A man is robbed in the middle of the night while making a call in a phone booth. Staggering on the road from his injuries, he is accidentally runned over by a car driven by Oom (Chayanan Manomaisnatiphap). He wakes up the next morning in a hospital with no recollection of his life leading up to the accident. With no memories, Oom is forced to take the man – whom she calls Tan, based on a pendant which was his only possession – home.
Tan’s (Ananda Everingham) presence in the house sets an uneasy feeling as the modern and career-driven Oom reluctantly takes him into her home. Oom has been involuntarily thrown into life as a single parent as she is now the sole guardian of her nephew, Ohm (Monton Arunpabmard), and is still reeling from the recent break-up with her business partner Krit (Piay Vimuktayou), whom she still sees in the workplace.
However, Tan proves to be of a helping hand when, out of boredom, he happily tidies the house and cooks for the family of two. Oom’s nephew, Ohm, quickly becomes attached to Tan and a familial bond was fostered, although Oom is reluctant to get too comfortable with the amnesiac Tan.
Pieces of the film are mirrors into your own soul. Every character and every event is a retrospective look into your own lives – aspects that you can relate to. Oom’s fast-paced life is sedated when Tan appears in the picture, and it is in his gentle nature that she finds relief from her suffocating life. Tan soon becomes her shoulder to lean on and sometimes, the other way around. His subdued ‘feminine’ qualities are nurturing and attractive – he even advises her on which lipstick colour to wear – a quality that the modern 21st century man fails to embrace. Expectedly, she soon falls in love with him.
“I don’t want to remember anymore. I want to be like this with you here, forever,” Tan tells Oom as they sit on a ledge outside her apartment, watching the sun set.
Ananda Everingham is convincing as a transsexual (Tan/Tanya) without resorting to outrageous flamboyance. His innocuous approach to the character provides depth, with a tinge of vulnerability. As the days go by, Tan slowly retraces his life and later finds out that he was a homosexual who worked as a showgirl in a bar outside of town. Tan and Oom’s relationship are tested as they try to make sense of their feelings now that they both know of Tan’s unusual past. Tan returns to be with his ‘family’ and the empty cavity felt in her house is heart-breaking.
The most gripping scenes in the movie is when Oom’s young nephew, Ohm, appears in the living room with red lipstick smeared all over his lips and he asks her, “If I grow up to be like Uncle Tan, wouldn’t you still love me?”
Just outside The Cathay,there was this Flower Arrangement Contest where nice lovely flowers were displayed which caught the attention of others,this includes me.
The flower arrangement was so well done!
As a flower lover,this is something which i would never had miss.
Gonna recommend another nice stall which dear hubby had bought me to this afternoon..I’m flower lover while he is food lover,where yummy food is concern,he sure know where to find it..
Oh well,this stall was located just opposite Kovan Station.
The carrot cake and kaya toast bread had already been there ever since dear was in NS according to him.It was more than 5 yrs back.There was a couple of time where he had wanted to bring me to this place for makan,but there was hardly any seat to me found,even today.
But i guess we had waited to eat the food from this place for quite some times back,and happened that just when we were about to take away the carrot cake,there was this seat for us..
*damn lucky i could say*
Really have to thank dear for bringing me all round Singapore during the weekends where this is the time which we can really enjoy and relax ourselves more.Being able to know where to find yummy food from him is something which i had alway enjoyed doing..
