Hi Blogsville,

How's everyone doing? I guess everyone is having a pretty banging summer 'cos no-one is blogging as often as they usually do...lol.

So I had a fun-filled weekend, nothing outrageously crazy or over the top. Just chilled and nice. My very, good friend B came over on Friday and left Monday. Wat did we do for the weekend? Well, let's see we went on a free tour of Central Park, where they give u historical info, and facts about the park (thot it was gonna be a bore, but it was fun!), strolled thru the park just observing, laughing, taking pictures and enjoying the moment. Then we went on the Ferry to Staten Island and it took us right by the Statue of Liberty, and when we went past it everyone was cheering and clapping! It's funny how when you live in a particular place, you take for granted the tourist attractions or just generally forget that they are there. Four years in NY and I've never been to the Statue of Liberty and a long list of other tourist attractions and famous sites. My list of things to do is getting long.

We also spent the weekend watching African movies. You'll never catch me watching an African movie by myself, I jst can't. But if there's someone else around, then I will. So the movies we watched were;
Love Games- a story about a guy who was in the process of marrying a chic, but had slept with all four of her sisters, and she didn't know it.

Sin of the Soul: A wealthy and influential man's son is trying to get with a girl who turns to prostitution to help save her dying mother; in the process he kills her. Her older sister who happens to be a maid to his father is also his victim because in exchange for financial support he also had his way with her.

The Perfect Picture: this was the best movie out of all three!!! A newly married couple are having problems in the bedroom. After holding off sex for one year in order to make the wedding night special, "junior" refuses to rise to the occassion and as a result there is wahala in paradise...lol

Lemme just say the picture quality, the actors, and general production of this movie was good! As in, they really tried abeg. And its a Ghanian movie but there were no overly heavy accents that could sometimes distract from the actual performance. Pls go and watch this movie. And if u've watched it, wat did u think about the new-bride's way of finding out what was wrong with her hubby? Would you have done same? (i'm trying not to give away the story-line...lol)

Anyways, that's my quick update. Hope everyone is having a great week!

PS: Saw Ice-Age 3 too, it was ok.

Talk to you guys soon,
Miss Enigma!
