Disneyland Gifts

Milka just wrote something in her blog about how a friend saw something cute and instantly reminded him of her. I then remembered these! Hehe.

These are gifts from three different friends who went to Disneyland and brought me home something because as they said, these reminded them of me. It's really funny cuz all three of them gave these more or less around the same time frame, it feels as though they talked about it, haha but of course they didn't cuz they don't know each other or anything. Anyway... blab over.

The one on the left is a black Minnie Mouse pen from Juy. I love the super cute ribbon on the pen!! I have this thing about not using pretty things. So this pen is just standing there in my pen stand, hehe. It's so cute. The one in the middle is from Abs. It's a really nice keychain. It looks so vintage! I'm using it right now for my house keys. And the last one's from Harold. A very cute and funny Minnie Mouse umbrella. Beats me where I'm going to use it, haha but I still love it anyway.

Thanks super for these, Juy, Abs and Harold. I love them very much. Heehee. Just like what Milka said, I'm very honored that people remember me when they are in nice places, like Disneyland! Yey!

Still Enchanting

"I've been dreaming of a true love's kiss, and a prince I'm hoping comes with this...."

One of the most delightful films this year, Disney has proved that they still have it, with Enchanted. I'm so glad that Walt Disney Pictures has decided to return to 2D Animation. Although I did find Meet the Robinsons fairly cute, Chicken Little was just really bad, so let's leave the 3D thing to Pixar for now, ok?

When I first heard about the plot, I really thought it was gonna be bad. I expected nothing more than the average cliche twisting of fairytales kindda thing. But when I first saw the trailer, it was so funny and it got me all excited! It was what I've been waiting for for forever. And it did not disappoint me. This film is just so cute, witty, funny and very VERY DISNEY! I hope they continue to produce princess films again. And I LOVE THE SONGS!! My friends were laughing when they asked me if I knew the songs (as I do with the other Disney films) and then I started singing "When you meet that someone, who was meant for you!..." haha.

One of my friends was squealing "Sheena! You should've watched with us! It's such a "you" movie!" after he saw the movie (yes it's a he) with my other friends (I had classes that time). And a few days later, another of my friends texted me and asked if I had already seen the film because according to him (yes it's another he), he could just imagine me singing in our local park, just as Giselle did at Central Park. It's was so funny! Haha. And I'm so proud that my friends thought of me while watching this movie! Hahaha. I'm such a Disney girl.

So, in relation, I've been trying to draw Enchanted fanart since last month, but I've always failed. I've done two drawings with Giselle in a her ball gown but I could never get the background colors right. So I decided to change costumes and did this instead, one of her in her adorable blue dress. Heehee. It's so bright (the color of her costume) and I love it. I wanted her to look extremely delighted, but one of my guy friends pointed out that she looks extremely scared of the squirrel HAHA so I don't know... I guess I still failed.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, go see it now! It's really really adorable. And if you love Disney, you'll surely love this one. I can't wait for the Princess and the Frog and Rapunzel (though Rapunzel is 3d, I'm glad they're back to fairytales). Hope they're even better than Enchanted.

Love Actually

Watching Love Actually every holiday season is my personal Christmas tradition.

If you're one of those people who know me very well, you'll know that I go to great lengths to emphasize just how much I hate cheesy, romantic, chick flicks. I love fairytales, yes, and unique love stories, but just not the average everyday stupid romantic comedies. Ergh. Anyway, when I first heard about this movie a few years back, I was very hesitant to watch it, and the only reason that I did was because Keira Knightley was part of the cast.

I can honestly say, that watching it, was one of the best choices I've made in my entire life.

People often ask me why the hell I'm so in love with this movie. To others it was just an average film and to some, it was just too damn confusing. But to me, it was perfect... in every way. It's funny, it's cute and the stories are just too heartwarming.

(This paragraph will be full of random thoughts about random parts in the movie) Probably being the biased person that I am, my favorite story is that of Keira's and how her husband's best friend fell for her. The doorstep moment is one of the best parts in the movie. Their story made me very sad and when he said "enough now..." after everything... *sigh* it broke my heart :( . One of the cutest was the little kid who was very in love with the most popular girl in school. Hehe. That was so cute... especially when he was so convinced that his drumming would actually win the girl's heart. Aren't we all that silly sometimes...

I will forever be watching this movie once every year, during the holiday season. I've done it for three straight years already. It's something to look forward to everytime to get me into the holiday spirit!

And each time I watch this movie, I am always reminded why I fell in love with it in the first place. Love Actually showed me the different faces of love. It wakes you up, gives you hope and makes you wonder, if love actually is ... just around the corner.
