Shopping is a neccessity, no?

So, I just caught Confessions of a Shopaholic , and i think that it was OK..It was OK, in a sense that it has that rom-com feel that the book gives you when you read it. The thing that bothers me when they translated the novel to the big screen is that they changed the book, a lot! Among the obvious:1. Becky is supposed to be British, and the main setting is in London. Read somewhere that this movie combines the first two books (second book, she goes off to Manhattan to shop :D) 2. She never worked for Luke. They met on a TV talkshow. 3. Her friend, Suze, is supposed to have a uber rich cousin, Tarquin, who dates Becky. 4. It's not a green scarf, it's supposed to be a Denny and George scarf. Still, the green scarf was lovely! :DAt least, they did stick to the book story:1. The characters are still Becky, Luke, Suze, Alicia Bitch Longlegs :D2. Becky still has a lot of debts, and Derek Smeath is chasing after her.3. Luke and Becky did hook up ;)4. Becky calls Alicia, 'Bitch …

Gah!! One of my fav tracks off When the World Comes Down!! Yay!! I never thought that I was so blind  I can finally see the truth  It’s me for you  Tonight you can’t imagine that I’m by your side  Cuz it’s never gonna be the truth  Too far for you   But can you hear me say?  Don’t throw me away  And there’s no way out  I gotta hold you somehow   I wanna I wanna I wanna touch you  You wanna touch me too  Everyday but all I have is time  Our loves the perfect crime   I wanna I wanna I wanna touch you  You wanna touch me too  Every way and when they set me free  Just put your hands on me   Take everything that I know you’ll break  And I give my life away  So far for you  But can you hear me say  Don’t throw me away  There’s no way out  I gotta hold you somehow   I wanna I wanna I wanna touch you  You wanna touch me too  Everyday but all I have is time  Our loves the perfect crime   I wanna I wanna I wanna touch you  You wanna touch me too  Every way and when they set me free  Just put your hands on me   Tonight I’m weak  …

That's Best Friends for Life. So, this post is a bout a few days late, and my only entry so far this week...I know, and I'm sorry. On the 17th, some of my friends and I arranged a surprise b'day party for R, although F ruins it by accidentally informing R about it. Ha! So anyways, we did have it at McD 3rd Mile, with cake, McD, and lots of laughter.  We haven't seen each other in a while, so we kinda miss each other so much, up to the point that we are spamming each other's status on Facebook :D And about a few days ago, I hung out with B, F, and Z. We're supposed to catch a flick, but we didn't (Ain't my fault they didn't wanna see Star Trek, and the cinema has nothing they are interested in... picky,picky...). We just went for drinks, talked and chatted... and that's it. Pretty boring actually, but at least I get some sun. Yea, I kinda miss my friends too, and it's kinda fun to hang out once in a while. But somehow I felt aloof, or alienated, c…

There's vampires, there's shapeshifters, there's sex, there's blood.. wooh!

Based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. Season 1 is almost at it end, currently airing on MAX (Astro ch 412) on Thursday nights, 9.00 p.m. Season 2 will premiere in June.

A Trekkie I am not, but the movie rocks!

Image
Wow. That's describing the new Star Trek film in one word. I admit, I ain't a Trekkie, and this movie ain't gonna convert me into a Trekkie. But, one thing is true, this movie is SO AWESOME!!! What's so awesome about it? **POSSIBLE SPOILERS** Well, first is the effects. Every part of the special effects are OTT awesome! From the details on the Enterprise, to the Romulan spaceship, to the outer space environment is so, so great! J.J Abrams did an amazing job on directing this film. Props to him! Also, another part of the movie which makes it amazing is, of course, the cast itself. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are so awesome in their roles. Chris looks so sexy as James Kirk, and although sporting an unconventional hairdo, Zachary did good portraying Spock, an icon in the Star Trek world. The rest of the cast are also equally good, from Zoe Saldana, to Anton Yelchin, to Simon Pegg, to Eric Bana, to John Cho.  Another outstanding element of the film is the score. Some scene…

Red is back

Yay! My car is back. After 3-4 months of plastic surgery (LOL!!), my red car is back on the road. It looks... well, different from what it looks like before. But I guess that is what plastic surgery does to ya! (ROTFL) Yay again!

Gory, yet not horror-ish

Another day, another flick. Today's (or more like last night, actually...but I'm watching it again now) flick: I Know Who Killed Me. I think this is Lindsay Lohan's last film...she hasn't done anything new... Honestly, I'm a LL fan, so I was anticipating this movie on the big screen 2 years ago (2007), but it was shown here in Malaysia in early 2008, and I did n't get the chance to see it cos I was busy that time. It didn't show for long, too. Only, like, 3 weeks, maybe due to many people reading the US reviews. Trust me, the critics were harsh. Aubrey (in blue) & boyfriend OK so perhaps the US critics weren't that wrong. I think that this movie was OK. It wasn't THAT bad, but it wasn't very good, either.  It's sorta a simple story, with the theme of stigmatic twins. And also, to differentiate the two different characters LL plays, the producers set out two colour tones: blue, and red. B lue is for Aubrey (her posessions, the hospital sheets…

Now what?

OK, so the semester is over. Now what do I do? Let's explore my options, shall we? 1. Summer job. I have given this some thought, and perhaps it's good, cos I can earn some money so I can spend some. Heeee... it's a win.win situation... hmm... but I kinda don't feel like I wanna work. 2. Makeover-ing my bedroom. Well, it's slowly progressing. I'm going for a French theme. I already have purple walls, chequered deep blue-and-white curtains, and a painting of Moulin Rouge hanging on my wall. But where will I get the cash to upgrade my room? 3. Hanging out in town. Do thi every day and I'll get bored. Even going out for one day and I'm already bored. 4. Movies. It's summer. Time for blockbusters!! But wait, what about the tickets? I don't have anymore free tickets... I just used my last pair two months ago... 5. Online. Yeah, as if I won't get bored. 6. Stay at home. Good poption. Gives me time to rejuvinate and relax. Perhaps I'll try to lose wei…

When a Bunny leaves the Mansion

Image
OMG, I just watched The House Bunny, and it is hi-la-rious!! There's laughs every few minutes. Really. High notes: 1. Anna Faris. She is, like, so funny! She plays the dumb blonde character very nicely, proving that blonde are not dumb at all. It's kinda smart how she saved the Zeta house. Funniest scene is when she reenacted Marilyn Monroe's most memorable pose.  Then again, if she keeps on playing comedic roles, then she might risk being typecasted. Yikes! 2. Script. The script is as funny as Anna herself. Lines like, 'The eyes are the nipples of the face' and 'My heart's pounding like a nail' are seriously memorable. There are also many memorable scenes becuase they are really hilarious. 3. Storyline. On the outside, it looks like a typical chick flick, which it sorta is. But there's a deeper meaning to the movie, which is do not judge a book by its cover. 4. The other Zeta house members. They are all funny in their own way, including  Katharine McPhe…

It's over!!!!

Wa hoo! Sem 2 is finally over! This morning was my last exam paper, Engineering Mechanics. It was OK, some I can do, some I can't do. But whatev. It's over!!! So, now, what is left is to pack up my stuff, and ready to leave tomorrow. I have no clue if I'm going back here again, really. As in, back to my college, cos I got evicted. Hope that appeal comes through, and that I get a room for another semester. What is left to do? Go dancin' in the rain (like in Step Up 2 ...) !! Till next time...

Now we know where Wolverine comes from, eh...

Image
So, I went to catch 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' a.k.a. Wolverine. I think it was awesome! Effects are great, acting is great, script is great, cinematography is good... but one thing, the story was a tad too short, not enough character development, and some needs more screen time. What I like the most about the flick are: **SPOILERS AHEAD** 1. Hugh Jackman. I mean, this man IS Wolverine. He's so AWESOME in that role. So damn buff. Too buff, really. Makes him look bulky. Fav part, where he escapes that burning barn on a bike. So awesomely awesome! And that claw thing is waay cool... Does adamantium exist, btw? 2. Ryan Reynolds. I admit that I'm not a fan of the comic books, but I like Ryan in this movie. He plays Wade, who becomes Deadpool. But he ain't on screen for long. too bad. He deserves more screen time. Like the swordfighting skills... 3. Action and effects. Action was great, but not like awesomely great. Perhaps it's the director, or maybe Fox. You've he…

Friday

That title was simple, wasn't it? So yea, my friends and I went out on Friday, May 1st, cos it's a public holiday here (Labour Day! No white outfits after yesterday ;)). It was... fun. Actually, we were supposed to go out today, Saturday, but V got a car that morning, so we, that's V, E and I, went out. We brought J along too. It's an interesting day out, really. There's salon-ning in TJ, ice cream and a photoshoot at Green Heights, spent 2 hours with Wolverine (:D), and finally sushi!! So yea, that was a summary of the day. Really short, ain't it? Well the three of them went on partying that night, while I went back and cozy up to my bed, and slept through the night with my laptop on, logged in to Facebook. Ha!! So where's the huge surprise twit, you ask? That was this morning, at 6 a.m. The grils called me up, cos I forgot to pay for the car we rented (tee hee...). We had breakfast (that was fun. Never had breakfast with anyone else but my parents...), and I go…
