Memoirs of a Geisha

Pic from official website

I rushed down to Cineleisure after work to watch the movie, Memoirs of a Geisha yesterday (Wed)... I had actually booked the tixs the nite before for fear that i wont have any more good seats, which was a very good move.. I arrived at the theatre way in time to collect the tixs and walked back to the Somerset station to guide my Ah Gal, Karen to the Cineleisure.. She is hopefully lost in Orchard area and i dont understand why...

I find the booking system for Cathay to be a bit weird.. The amount of the tickets was not credited online but when you picked up the tickets.. this is so different from the other cinemas.. But i guessed this helped to prevent fraud?

Since i had not read the novel, watching the movie became a more relaxing matter.. I would not be constantly comparing the movie scenes with the novel scenes.. Although there were comments that the actresses did not do a very impressive job but i still think the movie is nice ^_^

Ken Watanabe looked soooo charming, with eyes that just reached out to you.. This reminded me of actors like Andy Lau and Takeshi Kaneshiro.. Yes, i'm a sucker for such guys...

I love the last part where the two of them finally get together.. Although the Chairman could only be Suyuri's danna but at least Sayuri's wish is fulfilled.. I wonder how the Chairman knew where Sayuri stayed and then managed to ask Mameha to train her.. Dont know.. it's a mystery to me :p

Saw Shyan Jun when i was leaving.. hahaha.. he was with a female friend so i was teasing him of doing bad things behind his gf's back.. whahaha.. It's so fun to tease ppl :p Anyway, he was going to watch some other movie loh.. I think is Fearless, if i did not remember wrongly.. Seemed like a nice show, can consider watching too...

It was a mad rush down to Plaza Singapura after the movie.. Yes, we walked there, ok? We managed to get to Carrefeur before it closed as Karen wanted to buy CHOCOLATES!!! What a big temptation to me.. and then finally could sit down properly and have our dinner at around 10plus..

We ate Mos Burger and i tried ice milk tea for the first time.. I heard that Mos Burger is most famous for it's rice burgers and ice milk tea... Anyway, i dont have much liking or dislike for the drink but i think i will stick to ice peach tea in the future.. Maybe i can try the rice burger next time :)


  • I love the movie!
    Very artistically done!
    Love the way they film the show.

  • the movie is nice, but if dialogue is in japanese would be better. Listening to them speak ang mo is a bit weird weird.

  • me haben watch Geisha thus cannot comment on it..

    actually the distance bet cineleisure and PS wasn't far, just chat chat walk walk will reach le.

    for MOS Burger, i normally neber add the milk into the ice tea and rather just drink it up..'cos the 2 miserable small milk was too little to concentrate the cup of tea!!
