Goodbye August.. Hello September.. ^^ [Movies, Music & Food!!! 3 things I can never live without!!! LOL!!!]

August had been a really good month for me..

Very blessed in every area, especially, financially.. ^__^

Praying that September would be an even better month!

Fighting!!! ^^

Managed to squeeze some time into my busy schedule to watch a few movies on DVD last month.. ^^

Watched this very heartwarming Korean comedy - Hello Ghost (헬로우 고스트)

& love it lots!

I've always wanted to watch this movie years ago when it was first released in Korea & am so happy I've finally watched it! ^_^

The film was the 9th highest grosser of Korean films in 2010.

The film was bought by American film production company 1492 Pictures in February 2011 and is scheduled to be remade by Chris Columbus.

Really awesome movie!

Highly recommended!

The story is about this guy name Sang-man (Cha Tae-hyeon) who starts seeing four annoying ghosts after a failed suicide attempt. Carrying out their individual wishes, he finds the pleasures of daily life and forgets about his loneliness and depression.

A very meaningful movie..

I actually cried at the end.. Kekeke.. which is so unlike me.. ^_^

This goes to show how good the movie was.. ^_^

And I'm very happy that Columbus is gonna remake it! ^_^

Also watched another movie which won multiple awards recently..

A Simple Life (Chinese: 桃姐; Mandarin Pinyin: Táo Jiě; Jyutping: Tou4 Ze2), also known as Sister Peach, is a 2011 Hong Kong drama film directed by Ann Hui and starring Andy Lau and Deanie Ip.

Lead actors Andy Lau & Deanie Yip received a standing ovation @ the Venice Film Festival!!!
