Yesterday my apartment and some friends celebrated the Chinese new year. Ashley and Hilary made really tasty food (gyozas, rice, fried noodles). It's great having roommates who love to cook. Jamie and I did help them make the gyozas though and so we turned on disney music and just sang our little hearts out while we worked. It was great.
Then we had an interesting experience with a certain Provo rapper, ate fortune cookies, and watched Mulan.
I love watching movies from my childhood. They're just so good and I always enjoy them just as much as I did when I was little. I remember when I was pretty young and we got the movies Mulan and Anastasia. Camille and I watched those two over and over again.
I always loved this scene:
I kind of wish I had this 80's sounding theme music whenever I made a big decision.
And of course:
Mulan's probably the coolest female Disney main character.
Oh also, my favorite quotes from the movie:
Fa Zhou: My, what beautiful blossoms we have this year. But look, this one's
late. But I'll bet that when it blooms, it will be the most beautiful of
The emperor: The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.
Mulan to Shang: Would you like to stay for dinner?
Grandma Fa: Would you like to stay forever???
Yao: I'll get that arrow pretty boy. And I'll do it with my shirt on.
Fa Li: I should have prayed to the ancestors for luck.
Grandma Fa: How lucky can they be? They're dead. Besides, I've got all the luck we'll need.
