Yehey! I’ve seen the movie already. I’m on night shift this week so got the chance to watch it yesterday before going to work. Another feel good movie especially for ladies out there. I’m still not done with the book (still on Italy part) but I’m enjoying every part of it. It’s been a long time since I read and finish a book so I promise to myself to finish this soon rather than spending my precious idle time doing Facebook and surfing PEP. 🙂
The book is a memoir written by a lady who has just gotten out of divorce and in order to find and discover herself again, she goes out to the world and spent her time traveling and exploring the things she wants in her life. She traveled to Italy to enjoy the food (Eat), then she went to India to do meditation for her spirituality (Pray) and finally to Bali, Indonesia to find the balance in her life and that’s also where she met her new found love (Love) – thus Eat, Pray, Love.
Most women of my age can relate to the book because it’s all about finding oneself and doing things that will make you happy. It’s candid and funny so you’ll never get bored with it. Plus, I also love to eat and travel just like the author. After watching the movie, all I can think of right now is “I badly want to go on a spiritual JOURNEY too!” hahaha –Just finding some excuse to go on travel 😉 Oh, I also think that Julia Roberts is a perfect fit for the role. (Bias here – I just love her since that Pretty Woman flick!)
I’m thinking of going to India next year to see the Taj Mahal (which is one of my ultimate personal travel goals next to seeing Phuket). Good thing, I have some Indian colleagues who gladly gave me some tips as well as offers to accompany me in my next dream journey. I’m still doing some accounting on how much the trip will cost me, hopefully I’ll get a good deal package so I can start planning already.
Anyways, I just love the book, that’s it. I started to appreciate anything Italian. The book gave a new color to spaghetti, gelato and pizza na dating so-so lang (Wow! Ito lang talaga naalala ko yung pagkain part hahaha). Plus, I’ve learned some Italian phrases, one of which is now my new favorite “la dolce far niente”. (Oooohhhhh…did I just mention earlier about not wasting time? 🙂 )
