Girl on a train- Review

Girl on a train is a psychological thriller adapted from a novel聽by the same name written by Paula Hawkins. On my way back from South Africa my husband watched this on the plane and told me to watch it too. He’s usually not into drama type movies but he said that it was good and that I would like it, so that’s what I did then.

I have to admit that I really liked the movie and the story telling manner of the movie. You are almost just as clueless about the events as the main protagonist.

This review might contain some spoilers

The story is about a woman (Rachel) who rides the train to and from work everyday. She sits in the same cart everyday. She started to notice a woman( Megan) on her porch who looked very happy.The-Girl-On-The-Train-First-Look-haley-bennett.jpg Megan was married and looked content in her little life. Rachel on the other hand is an alcoholic who is trying to recover from her own failed marriage. Her husband Tom, left her for another woman called Anna. One day Rachel sees Megan on her porch with another man, not her husband, and this infuriates Rachel. She feels that the Megan is throwing away her perfect life and some of her own emotions from her own failed life 聽comes to the fore. Rachel in a drunken rage decides to go to Megan and bash her head in because of her stupidity to throw away her life. On her way home Rachel sees Megan in the street and runs after her screaming that she is a whore and Rachel blacks out. She does however wake up in her own home covered in blood leading us to believe that she killed Megan. Especially after Megan is reported as missing on the news. Since it is a first person narrative, we don’t know if she’s guilty or not until the very end.

During some scenes of the movie you really think she is guilty, since she can’t remember what happened during her blackout she herself is unsure whether or not she killed Megan. She even goes as far to befriend Megan’s husband claiming to be one of Megan’s best friends.

A story of deceit, lies and uncertainty, The Girl On The Train is a must see if you like psychological thriller.

Healthy Breakfast Muffins

Hi Everyone. Since I went to South Africa for a holiday I’ve been eating non-stop. I gained about 8 pounds and now that I’m back home in Korea I have to get back to eating normally and making some changes in my sugar intake so you can expect a few more healthier meals from me in the next few weeks 馃榾

Bran muffins are an excellent聽meal for breakfast, lunch or even just for a snack, they are wholesomely delicious and juicy. I use a basic packet of Bran Muffin mix and make it as specified and then comes the special ingredients…. add a cup of raisins and 1 grated apple. This gives the muffins a fruity taste and moist consistency. You could even go further by adding a grated carrot to give it more of a carrot cake feel.

50 Shades of Grey Inspired Valentines

Since 50 Shades Darker is releasing for Valentines Day, I thought why not use it as a theme for Valentines Day.

Today’s drink will be a Perfect martini, with equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth and garnished with pearls instead of olives.

Easy and elegant.

Holiday insigts

For the past 2 weeks we’ve been back in South Africa. We’ve been soaking up the sun and visiting our families. It feels like the time have been flying at lightning speed.

At least we got to spend some quality time with our families. I feel sad because I miss them, but they all seem to be doing fine.

I also had the opportunity to spend some time with my stepmom. It took me some time to get use to her as my dad married her barely 6 months after my mother’s passing. After my mom died I didn’t really want to form any new connections in my life. It was so painful losing someone so close to me, and I had a lot of regrets. I remember telling my husband that I wanted to visit my mom on the weekend because I’m worried about her, by then she was already bedridden and didn’t really open her eyes or speak, but I use to talk to her in any case and sometimes, just sometimes she would open her eyes and faintly smile at me. But that Thursday, my dad phoned me and told me that she had passed away.

Since then I stayed away from new people and new relationships, but after this weekend I feel that I can start allowing people back into my life.

My outfit this week is my little Korean style dress. I like wearing it because it reminds me of Korea. It also has a loose fit and allows you to move around in it. I got it form Teeny Weeny in Seoul, Korea.
