It's so nice to go out with girl friends. Definitely a whole lot different (and better!) than towing your man out to the malls. I just came from a Women's Expo yesterday with 4 of my friends. We spent the morning at a parenting seminar then the whole afternoon looking at stuff and enjoying the freebies. We even had our make-ups done at the Avon booth. Such fun to just walk around and exclaim over exquisite or strange items.

If I had my husband with me, he'll probably tolerate the first 5 minutes following me around. Then he'll say "Ok, now buy something coz I wanna get outta here." So I'm very grateful to have had the whole day to hang out with my friends. It doesn't happen often enough to please me. There's nothing like another woman to understand the need to be beautiful for oneself, than another woman. I'm glad I have friends to share this with. Simply ... bliss!

I've just finished reading Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club. What a wonderful read! So full of descriptions that allowed me to "watch" the scenes as they unfold. It is wonderful to have this privilege -- a glimpse of another culture so different and yet curiously, somehow the same in terms of bonds between families and friends. More so when it comes to mother and daughter love-hate relationships.

Oooh, I have to find a copy of the movie for my collection. Ever watched that? I loved that movie even before I read the book. That was the first movie I saw Ming-Na Wen in. I like that actress, dunno specifically why. Perhaps her sweet face and humurous nature is a combination most people can't resist. I must confess though that a lot of scenes made me cry. Agh, I'm such a sucker for sad stories!
