Last night we managed to catch Zoolander at TM. Hurried like mad after work, met Maj at Tg Pagar MRT – Maj very embarassingly managed to maneurve his way through the crowd, and got 2 seats for us in the crowded train, haha. So ahpek2 kejar seat sort of person eh. Reached TM, he went to buy tickets and drinks, I went to buy food from Mcdonalds and hid it inside my bag and ran upstairs, and we were about 5 minutes late for the movie.

In case there are people reading this who thinks that smuggling food into movie theatres is very bad, I agree with you. I don’t normally do that, but we just got back from work, and we get very hungry after work everyday 😀

Anyhoos.  Zoolander is sooo funny!!

Ok, not like Korean movie LOL funny, but if you listen to the (stupid) dialogue, it’s so kelakar. I went to google up some quotes and found some –

Derek: Do you understand that the world does not revolve around you… and your “do whatever it takes, ruin as many people’s lives”… so long as you can make a name for yourself as a journalist… no matter how many friends you lose… or people you leave dead and bloodied along the way… just so long as you can make a name foryourself as a journalist… no matter how many friends you lose… or people you leave dead and bloodied and dying along the way?

(I laughed like mad during this part! I love it when Ben Stiller does this in his movies – talk nonstop on full speed – he had something like this in DodgeBall too, and if I’m not wrong, in Starsky & Hutch too)

– 

Derek: I was at the Day spa. D-A-I-Y-E.

Maury: Derek, what do you do when you fall off the horse? You get back on! That’s what this business is all about!

Derek: Sorry, Maury. But I’m not a gymnast.

Matilda: Derek, Derek?
Derek: What do you want?
Matilda: Actually I’m trying to talk to Mugatu but he’s tougher to get to than the president.
Derek: Oh, I thought you were gonna tell me what a bad “eugoogolizer” I am.
Matilda: A what?
Derek: A “eugoogolizer.” One who speaks at funerals. Or did you think that I would be too stupid to know what a “eugoogoly” was?

(Quotes taken from here and here)

The whole plot was quite nonsensical, but the dialogue quite funny lah.


After the movie, we went to the bookstore, I bought a Joy Fielding book, and then we walked to 147, I took a cab home and he went to kdkopi.

Today I might be meeting him for lunch.
