It is almost like a ritual, whether to sit down to have a proper meal or just walk inside the favorite book store or checking out the latest style in our favorite clothing store during lunch time.
We had proper lunch today (yesterday) and so full with a healthy meal of our choice. That was more satisfying as compare to the mixed rice we had early this week in the Pekeliling area at one of the typical Malay restaurant and charged us a bomb!
Over the lunch, Sabel told me that she was quite disturbed when I told her that I am not a fan of Iron Man a few days ago (don’t hate) as she referred them as ‘men’ kind of movies. Something that I never revealed, which I don’t think I need to, I just tell her that I am not a fan of the super heroes movies. If it’s not because being influenced by FRM since we got married, I can be sure that I will never go and watch that kind of movies purposely.
I always love a realistic kind of movies that is about life. I am taking things seriously. Trying to give me some senses over the men type of movies, Sabel revealed the reasons that makes her keep on going back for that kind of movies. To name a few the men type of movies such as Superman, Spiderman, Star Trek, Hulk etc. I have to admit that her reasoning actually giving me senses towards the movies of that type. Suddenly I felt like I am having a different perspective over this class of movies. Perhaps, I just miss the soft part of the unrealistic movies or perhaps I was ignoring the reality & emotional part that maybe will bring me closer to those movies and looking the unrealistic pieces that actually have some realistic essence. Brained peeled off!
On another note, a book that attracted me to pay for today is a hard cover book that has a classic design (at least to my eyes) with bright colors! Forgetting the books that have been in the list for quite sometimes, this one kind is so attractive. Breathing!
One senior colleague in the office was quite surprise when she saw me flip through the dictionary. Despite there are online dictionaries, that you can get the meaning of the words you are looking for in a split second, I still love to flip through the dictionaries. The smells of the old papers is stimulating when we fan the pages in front of us. I love the result by the chemical reaction that makes the worn out pages turned into yellow or brown, I am happy with the condition. Besides the function of the book as a dictionary, the feeling of using it still good and the climax will be when to find the words, to understand the meaning and to start using them as though none of your friends know the meaning! Yes, I am still using a dictionary, it is the old one and it is the classic one. Old classic dictionaries are still kicking ass!
I wish I was special, yes so very special!
