The social butterfly I once knew

The social butterfly I once knew


I remember writing an essay about Audrey Hepburn in high school. I gave my little piece of work the title, The Social Butterfly I Once Knew after her most distinguishable role in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I remember my mom surprised me with the VCD copy of this film when I came home from my high school Ilocos trip. Despite my lack of sleep and sun burnt back (from the beach, of course), I took a long shower, slipped on my favorite flowy maxi dress, and spent the next 2 hours glued on the TV. From then on, Breakfast at Tiffany's immediately won the favorite movie of all time award. I have to admit, I didn't quite understand it at first, but there was definitely something about her charm, elegance and classiness that won me over. My favorite scene is definitely the first one where she was literally having breakfast in front of Tiffany's, complete with coffee and bagels. Holly Golightly is my favorite movie character of all time. I'd love to dress up as her on Halloween. haha


Since then, I've been very curious about her movies and her life. I even endured watching the Audrey Hepburn Story starring Jennifer Love Hewitt on youtube. (If you chance upon the quality of the video, you'll see why I meant "endured".) After Breakfast at Tiffany's, I started buying other Hepburn movies. I always end up liking the movie no matter how serious, or superficial it is. So far, I've seen Sabrina, How to Steal a Million and Roman Holiday. I've been dying to see My Fair Lady so I seriously hope I can find the ultimate Audrey Hepburn DVD collection!

Okay so I'm blogging about Audrey Hepburn because I found out that one cable channel is going to have an Audrey Hepburn Film fest this month and they'll be showing one Audrey Hepburn movie every Sunday night! I'm so excited because they'll be showing the movies I have not seen yet :)

One of the items on my bucket list, is to see, touch and photograph Audrey Hepburn's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in L.A. Speaking of bucket list, I'm about to cross out an item come July 28. My ultimate favorite band Incubus is coming back to Manila!! Call me a loser but I've never been to a concert before, save for those free concerts in college. I told myself Incubus will be the first concert that I'll watch and I thought that's never gonna happen since they came over to the country twice already. I hope I won't faint once I see Brandon Boyd <3



Happy Weekend ;)
