yesterday, i watched a movie - Marley & Me
you'd think that with a star-studded cast with the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, they were going to steal the show and have the spotlight on them the whole time..
but nooooo, the real star of the movie had four legs - a dog.
to be precise, a labrador, named Marley.
heart-warming, gut-wrenching and tear-jerking,
this movie is a definite must-watch for animal lovers, especially pet owners
the human relationships are great too!
i like cheeky funny people in love
i cant remember the last time i cried while watching a movie
but yeap, i have to admit that a tear or two did escape me
there was this whole excerpt from the movie that really got to me
"a dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. a waterlogged stick would do just fine. a dog doesnt care if you're rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. give him your heart and he'll give you his. how many people can you say that about? how many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? how many people can make you feel... extraordinary?"
i think this is one of my weaknesses - my Achillies' heel, you might say
animal themed movies...
seriously if i see an animal die, my eyes would well up and overflow and there goes the waterworks
but if i hear news about a death of a fellow human being, sure, i'd be all sad and sympathetic and all
but you certainly wont see me crying a river about it
and another thing.. watching "Marley & Me" really reminded me of how much i miss my cats at home.
and i've only been here at sepang for 4 hours...
i love you Bonnie, JR, Nemo and Baby
you are my 4 favourite four-legged freaks
i wouldnt trade any of you for an iPhone 3G
