It is such a wonderful WonderfuL, BeautifuL, SweeT like mad show that made me left the cold downtown east cinema with a warm heart.
This is definitely not a conventional kid-pleaser show. Up is a film that is full of real life scenarios and underlying meanings. Yes, children can watch it for the plain fun animation, and adults can find lots of scenes very close to the heart.
Storyline is tight and great. Animation is Perfect! So perfect that even when it is only cartoon, I cringed during the high altitude scene! Especially the parts involving falling and dangling actions. Ok, I admit that I am a lil acrophobic (just learnt this new word for height phobia from Google)! But it is THAT life-like!
What else can I say? Bring the kids there to learn about bravery, responsibility and perseverance. And bring your special someone there to learn love, principles and life!
Well, Arthur is a 101% Disney Fan, so dun take it from me! Go check it out yourself! You will thank me for this recommendation! =)
Ok, many of you might find it weird about the previous GI Joe post, coz Arthur is soooo NOT a action fan! But I posted it coz I wanted to win the preview tickets.. In the end I didn’t but oh well…
Anyway, Mr Lim is a total Action guy and thus we ended up in the theatre for the show!
I must say that this is one rare action flick that blew me away! I like the twists of the stories, the subtle love plot and the amazing (though violent) effect of the show!
So if an anti-violent, bored-by-brainless-action person who dun even know about G.I. Joe in the first place like Arty enjoys it, I am sure you will too! Go catch it! Definitely worth your ticket price! =)
G.I. Joe is storming to town come 7 August 09!
Fans who are fond of real cool actions be sure to check it out!
For now, check out a really fun G.I. Joe quiz at http://www.gijoemovie.com/intl/quiz/uk/ to find out which character you are! I happen to be Ripcord! Haha.. The buffed but not exactly that smart dude! Pretty accurate!! I’m not that buff (yet) but not that clever too! LOL!! =P
Keke… No acting involved! They are seriously having fun!!
This is a typical “feel-good” movie from Disney. Personified and adorable Chihuahuas (though as a doglover, I am not particularly a fan of Chihuahuas) depicts the real-life, not necessary kind world of humankind… It cleverly shows the gap between the rich and the poor, races, good and evil, even some moral values…
Been some days since I last update here… Lotsa fun moment, lotsa fun (and gorgeous Arty’s) pictures to share!!
First and foremost, it would be:

Food Safari Home Electronics Fair@ Suntec
Went down to the fair really early coz I wanna grab the ultra cheap LCD TV for my parents wedding anniversary… Also coz the current TV in the living room is like going to DIE soon lah…
Ahhh… But missed most of it coz u know what a late boi I can be.. Keke… But I was still there before 12! It opens at 11am!! Dun even know whether the deals really exist… Got so many people buy LCD TVs meh?! LOL! I know I know.. I am the sour grape…
Anywayz, that would b e a blessing in disguise. Coz I was walking around and I caught this Sharp Aquos 42” LCD TV hourly promotion. At first its price tag was $2399. I was sceptical about how low the price can be… (By the way, it was held in a snatch bid kinda setting, only 5 sets for the first 5 person that rises up their hands.) When they turn the price over, I almost fainted!! It is only going at $1199!!! An amazing whole $1200 off!!! I instinctively raised up my hand and did a little jump and alas! I was one of the lucky 5… Due to the demand, another 5 sets was released but I dun care… Coz I am one of the FIRST 5!! Hahaha… But seriously that was CHEAP!!! $1199 includes the 42” HD Ready Sharp Aquos (Made in Japan, VERY Atas!! Haha..), installation, delivery and a $30 voucher coz I paid with my POSB Everyday Card! Super cool deal! Shaved off at least $300 off my budget!! **HAPPY**
And this is the card (ok, just the envelope) that I drawn to go along with the gift for my parents’ 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary… Geez… Marriage that sees ¼ of a Century… I wonder whether I can ever last that long in any relationship… Though not all smooth sailing, honey and dreamy, they managed to pull it through…
After the fair, I managed to met up with Sparky. It was the actual day of his birthday and I made him the Mango Vodka Sparkling Ribena that I “toasted” to him online (See previous post pic).
It was fun to see him walk wobbly after that! My concoction is surely potent alright!! Heeee…. We went over to play some arcade games and that drunk boi managed to beat me at the Guitar Hero with PERFECT score a couple of times!!! SO irritating…
Went to watch Madagascar 2 with Alex at the new Filmgarde Cinema at Kallang LeisurePark at night…
It was a fantastically funny and touching animation. Disney had done it again and I like this better than the first one!! It is a journey of how genuine support of friends and families, with a hint of luck/ “unluck” fulfils wildest dreams. Especially touched by the Father and Son dialogue between Zuba and Alex (not MY Alex) when talking about being a REAL lion.
The way that Alex uses “his way” to save the day is also incredible. Almost like my own way of bringing some “bacon” home last time by being myself…. How I wish my dad is an alpha male too… A president or something… Hahaha…
All in all a delightful and heart-warming pre-weekend animation for all ages.
