Les Miserables brunch

Les Miserables hit big screens in Bangkok on January 31st, weeks behind Europe. At least that's what I remember a friend in Sweden said to me last week of December 2012- that they're all crazy about the musical. I love buying little treats to celebrate films I enjoy watching. This time I tried the warm chocolate cupcake from Coffee Beans by Dao. I also browsed a sprinkling of quotes by LM genius Victor Hugo:

 "To love another person is to see the face of God."

 
“A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is visible labor and there is invisible labor.”


"He never went out without a book under his arm, and he often came back with two.”


“It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.”

  2. Beautiful quotes. Sometimes the invisible labor is the most exhausting.
