Happy 60th Birthday, Cannes Film Festival

After London, we flew out on a glorious day to Cannes where the annual film festival had already opened and the weather was even more glorious.

First check out the apartment, Michelle and I stayed in.  I've been to Cannes numerous times and this is definitely the nicest apartment I've stayed in.

After settling in, Michelle and I headed to registration and on to the Palais floor … we were after all there for work … so as much as I wanted to throw on my bikini and hang out on the beach, I found myself manning a booth taking questions about Singapore film.  Thank goodness the company was good 🙂

There were a couple of celebrity sightings like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie … just realised, how you see them in the magazines are how they look like real life at the festival 🙂

The thing I like about coming to Cannes is the quaint little eateries, like this tea place where the service was good which is very unusual in France 😛

Lovely ice mint tea and fresh tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese … yummmmmmmilicious and of course, we went to the great wood-fire oven place too.  We had a little dinner party at the pretty apartment, it was all really quite lovely.  The only thing was that I wished I was on a holiday … … the Italian guy who was making our pizza was so nice and even took a picture of us by the oven 🙂

Jules and I were entertaining ourselves taking pictures while we were waiting for the pizza to be made.  All in all, the 60th Anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival was rather quiet.  We were busy enough for work and made enough time for hanging out with friends.  With Jules moving to Japan, it's likely to be the last official trip we make together … coz never say never, I say :)  Maybe one day, we'll both be there because the film we made was chosen to be screened there!!  And maybe, just maybe one day they'll ask us to be part of the publicity too 🙂
