Dream…

 Jin still loves and deeply misses his ex-girlfriend and quench his thirst in his dreams…Ran, on the other hand,  hates her ex-boyfriend but still has to bear the results of Jin’s dreams…While one is dreaming lovinly and innocently thinking that dreaming is the only medium to reach his love, the other realizes his dreams in an unexpected and unwanted way…Only way for them to stop this interaction is to love each other or to end the sleeping process which means death!

This extraordinary and fantastic movie tells about two people, their love life and the way they affect each other. After watching the movie i am sure you will want to sleep at least 24 hours non-stop:)

Book Club…

book-club

I forgat to share a lovely news with you. I just joined in (indeed established) a book club last week. We are less in number for now (just 4 people) but we hope to enlarge soon. The name of the book club is a bit funny (which intends to cheer us up), which is “Pseudo Jane Austen Book Club”…..
The basic motive behind this action is not to have deep and detailed intellectual or philosophical debates or discussions but to motivate or support us to read as more books as possible and to distract our attention from the workload we are going through at least to a certain extent.
All we have to do is to exchange the books we read before, to read the book given to us in a month (everyone will read a different book) and to share the topic and our opinions about the book and the writer.

This month i will read “The Book of General Ignorance” by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson. Lets see how it will work! 🙂

New Year Shopping

christmasgiftSooooooo tireddddd but sooooooo happy i am…because today i completed the shopping thing for new year (at least partially as for me there is no end for shopping:) )

I was busy and upset in the morning as i have gone through some health problems; but after getting good news from my doctor, i turned into a happy and  a crazy shopping bug 😛

First i went to movie store and i got new year gifts for myself, which are 4 movie DVDs: 1) The Color of Paradise by Majid Majidi, 2) Taste of Cherry by Abbas Kiarostami, 3) Dream by Kim Ki-Duk, 4) The Duchess by Saul Dibb and i am so impatient to watch them (i guess i will pick up one to see just after completing this post!). Last week i had seen Baran by Majid Majidi and i had really apreciated the movie so i started to chase the movies by the same director. I noticed i am quite fond of watching Iranian films these days (but of course my priority is always Bollywood.)

After buying the DVDs, i gave a break and sat down at Starbucks giving some peace to my feet, drinking some black tea and eating a cute and tasty brownie…

Then i was on mission to buy a new year gift for a colleague, i visited many shops and it was quite hard for me to decide what to buy beause the shops were full of lovely and amazing stuff and once you are lost among the charm and the color of the gifts, it is really difficut to select just one and leave the rest behind. However, with the support of my husband, i achieved to choose one but unfortunately i am not able to name the gift as my colleagues follow my blog…..sssshhhhhh:)

Then i got a perfume for my husband (but i will not mention the brandname:P )

This post sounds like an intro to the main new year post which i am sure will be full of new year resolutions…hehe…now i am off to see a movie (with a cup of hot chochlate!!! 🙂

rab-ne-bana-de-jodi41I had already told you how impatient i was about the new movie of Shah Rukh…and after watching it once more i proved myself right about being so enthusiastic. Indeed, i was excited about seeing SRK on the screen once more rather than the movie itself or its storyline because even if SRK just stands still for hours i can watch him with eyes wide open 😛

This does not mean that i did not like the movie. On the contrary, i found it quite good, it is a nice timepass after a long office day especially. It turned my mood into positive just in a few minutes. It is about a love story again as when there is SRK, love is inescapable!!! An ordinary man…an energetic young girl…an unexpected marriage…an expected unilateral feelings at first…and a mutual deep love in the end!!!

The movie is decorated with lovely dance scenes by Shah Rukh and Anushka Sharma (the heroine). The musics such as Tuj mein Rab Dikhta Hai and Haule Haule were also fascinating.

In the movie each time while saying goodbye SRK was repeating the same dialogue (which i loved): “Hum hain rahi pyar ke phir milenge chalte chalte” 🙂 How meaningful especially when spoken by him!

In one of the song scenes, Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte, there were short appearences by well-known bollywood heroines such as Kajol, Rani, Pretty…That was a nice gesture as well…

All in all, if you are a bollywood fan, i highly recommend the movie not only because it is a SRK movie but also it is a good timepass…

BARAN…

b00006adg001lzzzzzzzxl21Baran was my Sunday movie. The storyline of the movie is related to the Afghani workers who took shelter in Iran escaping from the caos in their own land.

It starts with an accident taking place at a building site. A man falls down from the 4th floor and broke his leg. Next day he sends his son-Rahmat- instead to work. He looks quite weak and young for this heavy work, but he is given a chance. Another worker at the site-Latif-helps him time to time, however, when Latif’s job (which is relatively a lighter job) is given to Rahmat, he gets annoyed and became an enemy. During all this time Rahmat keeps silent.

Soon after Latif finds out that Rahmat is not a guy but a girl with a name Baran. It is understood that she had to disguise herself in order to be able to get this job. Now the hostility shown by Latif turns into a love.

The rest of the movie depicts the bad conditions of Afghani people and Latif’s struggles to help his lover with the power of his pure, innocent heart…

After completing the first 3 seasons of the TV serial LOST, i had given a long break before starting the season 4…then last night while thinking what to do lazily, it just came to my mind that the LOST people were still lost and i was the one to solve the mystery:) So once again i took a deep breath and made my sofa more comfortable before this thriller wrapped me for hours…

Needless to say i am a LOST fan, but it is necessary to mention that above all i am a huge fan of Sawyer (Josh Holloway)…He has a stubborn, naughty and even irritating personlity but deep inside he has such soft heart and above all he is dashingly handsome!!! People either love him or hate him…no gray areas for him….

If you want to have thrilling time with a group of lost people on a mysterious island struggling to survive and meanwhile (as a bonus) if you want an eye-candy (which is Sawyer :D), then get ready to be a member of the LOST world!!!

Welcome ME!

My vacation is over 😦 But i am back to my world of dreams:) I spent really nice days with my family, relatives and old friends who came together on one spot for one purpose (bilkul sis’ marriage)…Thanks to god everything went as planned (i do not count minor deficiencies which is the case almost in each wedding ceremonies)…I was with my sister on every step while she was getting prepared, while her hair was being done, while marriage pictures were taken…I saw many people whom i had not seen for ages…It was really crowded. The wedding hall was really chic and the choice of songs was also good. I danced the whole night without sitting even for a minute!

The next day after the occasion (as many of you can guess)  i was really exhausted, tired and even sick so i had to stay in bed for a day…But then (as many of you can guess again) i did shopping in my hometown. Additionally, I ate mom’s yummylicious food whole week (that was a bonus). I made some minor changes in me as well, such as i had my hair cut and dyed…(and almost everyone around me loved my new hairstyle!)

On the way back to my home, i thought i would certainly miss everyone and everything back there…Still i am happy to be in my routine…

However, today when i entered the office, the scene i came across was quite scaring…guess guess!!! Bunches of documents were waiting for me on my desk to be read, organized, planned,  signed, checked, etc. As it is almost the end of year, work is getting busier day by day…

Unfortunately i am not able to share the wedding pictures here but i want to show you the little angel i caught the “click” of whom during the occasion:)

2883034971_9c1c7da028Wake up very late today as if i wanted to get rid of all the exhausting load of the last week on my shoulder…Prepared my luggage (which took quite a lot of hours as i am usually an indecisive soul)…After completing every task before my trip, i had a long afternoon all free…so i decided to go to cinema after so many days without the big screen…

This time i chose a Turkish movie (which i usually dont prefer to see) named  “Osmanlı Cumhuriyeti” (Ottoman Republic)…I was really surprised at the movie because i was not expecting such a success…The movie searches the question what would happen if the Turkish Republic was not established and again what would it like be if the Ottoman Empire still exists…It shows various possibilities combining both the future and the past, encountering both the internal and external forces over the country…the storyline of the movie was quite clear, well-detailed and decorated with comedy items…

I found Ata Demirer quite successful as an actor, the emperor role fitted him quite much…The views from Dolmabahce Palace were fascinating as well…

When the movie ended, and when my eyes were stuck on the black screen, the sole thought in my mind was how proud i am of my country!

wedding-photography-victoria-bcToday i went out to find a pair of shoes to go with my dress which i bought to wear at the wedding. I really do not remember how many stores i visited today but considering the fact that my feet hurt really a lot, i must have been to 12 stores at least…but no matter what at last i met my dream shoes…phew what a day it was…

Okay! Back to the subject matter of this post…I will be leaving the city to visit my hometown for my sister’s wedding (as some of you already know). I am leaving on Monday and will be back on 17th of December.

Hope you guys will miss my posts when i am away….

See you all with new topics soon…

Take care all…

Diya Dil…

31de1qf2I was lost within the workload of the office (which has been the case for a lonnnngggg time) when i realized that I had not listened to any hindi song for so long. Then i put my headphones on, picked up a song randomly and left myself in the rhythm.

The song was “Dil Diya” by Himesh.

My mind was still occupied with the work but my heart was flying away to other worlds (if ever exist). The rest i really don’t remember 🙂

diya dil dil diya kya kiya kya kiya
diya dil dil diya
kya kiya ho kya kiya
dekha tujhe toh bepanaah ishq tujhse kar liya
diya dil dil diya kya kiya ho kya kiya
dard maine kaisa le liya
ho ho o dard maine kaisa le liya

bas teri aarzoo bas teri pyaas hai
yeh meri zindagi tera ehsaas hai
har waqt mere khwaab mein tera tasavvur chhupa
kambaqt tere pyar ka chhaya hai aaisa nasha
paagal banaya tune mujhe deewane saathiya
diya dil dil diya kya kiya ho kya kiya
dard maine kaisa le liya
ho ho o dard maine kaisa le liya

jaan ke dil yahaan koi deta nahi
bewajah ishq ka dard leta hai
kaise kahu main kis kadar tune hai bebas kiya
betaab karke mujhko chain mera le liya
lagta nahi hai ab toh kahi tumhare bin jiya
diya dil dil diya kya kiya ho kya kiya
dard maine kaisa le liya
ho ho o dard maine kaisa le liya
la la la la la la la la
