Update what happen lately on Eka’s life
1. Yesterday I had my first day back in Uni after almost 2 years quit. I give it another shot this time for education with the hope after graduate it would open more access for me to travel more (still my biggest passion)
2. Few days ago I hang out in a bar with office mate most of them were senior expats. I had talk to them about my working holiday visa plan in OZ after graduate from Uni then they suggest why don’t I talk to General Manager (a.k.a Boss B) at the office for a chance secondment in our Australian office. So today I had chance to chat to him about those possibilities and he nod yes with a faith I can be valuable for the company for the next 2 years or so…I’m so happpyyy! I should definitely make my plan with WHV in Australia. And when other friends I heard that go to Oz only doing some casual work (which I don’t mind at all as long as I could travel) I could get more chance by working professionally in our branch office in Oz! I know its long term plan but hearing about that already make me happy :) now I believe when people say “if you don’t ask then the answer always no”
3. After hearing that cute office guy would marry his gf in Oz i’m still a bit sad but I should keep move and forget this bastard. Its true that we should met wrong people in order to get the best one to keep one day. I haven’t meet this best person anyway but the hope is still lies anywhere. I booked another trip end of this year to spend Christmas and New Year abroad for the first time in my life. Can’t wait to meet more interesting people during my solo trip again :)
4. Trying to get better with daily make up. So here have a look of my bitchin face
Anonymous asked: So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?
the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.
A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.
Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.
the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.
The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.
Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.
Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.
A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.
The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.
Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.
But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.
Twenty-something? No, I feel like a twenty-nothing.
