Cultural Life: Sarah Chang, violinist
Friday 09 October 2009
I finally bought Lady Gaga's album! It is so much fun and makes me get up and dance every single time I hear a song.
It's really hard keeping up with my favourite shows, as I am constantly travelling. Friends often buy me DVD sets of my favourite shows. I love "Entourage" and I think Jeremy Piven is phenomenal. My little brother texts me updates when I'm on the road and miss a show.
I recently watched "The Graduate" for the first time. I can't believe it took me this long . I also saw "An Affair To Remember" with Cary Grant, and was crying my eyes out by the end. What a beautiful movie. My brother also dragged me to see "Transformers 2" over the summer.
I am currently reading John Grisham's "The Broker". I am determined to get myself a Kindle, an electronic book, which will reduce the number of books I carry on long-haul flights.
I was in The Hague recently and visited The Mauritshuis where Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" is housed. It's absolutely breathtaking.
