The Proposal

Went to watch The Proposal for a mini treat after I FINALLY submitted my PDCE biz proposal. I am so hoping it wun come back to me again. I am having nightmares after facing it for close to 8months! Ever since my application for the MICA funding!
Anywayz, back to the movie! It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!
Definitely one of the must watch of the year!
Even though the main story of a secretary (Ryan Reynolds) falling in love with a crazy boss (Sandra Bullock) over a weekend is a lil far fetched for me, but the hilarious yet clever plot fully make up for it.
The drop dead gorgeous main casts alone is worth spending your money on. Oh, and did I mentioned the ultra cute white fluffy puppy in the show? I wanna get one of those! Still can’t figure whether it is a Jap Spitz or a American Eskimo dog.
Acting is superb, cinematography is great and the soundtracks are just divine. Lots of love, fun and laughter. Bring your partners but leave the kids at home this time though… Too much skin is being exposed. Read: Sandra- naked except for her hands in front of her boobs and a tiny towel covering down under. Ryan- totally naked and stuck to bare bodied Sandra. Eye feast for adults but might be uncomfortable for parents who wants to leave the discussion of body anatomies with your 4yr olds till a few years later.
Catch it. No regrets! =)

Have fun!

Up- The Best Disney Flick of the Year!

Just as I thought that Disney is going downhill especially with the complete trashy “The Race to Witch Mountain” (I was totally disappointed with that show), UP came in and boy did it save the day!

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! =)

G.I. Joe- The Rise of Cobra

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! =)

My Sunday on 23 Nov 2008…

After bagging about 3.5hrs of sleep, my Sunday begins!
My cousin picked me up at 9.30am for a yummy prata bfast, followed by the first photoshoot session for Ministry of Games (a wholesome boardgame empire that my cousin is building up)! Look out for it!!
The stars of the day were my 2 gorgeous Nieces! Looks like the good-looking genes are definitely in our family line!! Kekeke…



Keke… No acting involved! They are seriously having fun!!

Just look at their happy faces!! I wanna be a KID again!!!

After the photoshoot around noon, I planned to pop to City Hall to catch the Anime Fest cosplay in action (yup, I am a budding cosplay enthusiast too!). However, Mr Alex decided to wake up from his hibernation and decided to go to the west area to spend a different Sunday which was fine by me since I was at AMK at the time he call… Very near his place…
Went to the latest mall in town: West Coast Plaza… Felt abit cheated coz it is really less than half done up. We went all the way there coz of all the great posters about it on the trains.. But nonetheless, I like the structure and the overall building layout. Definitely more spacious and brighter than her predecessor, the “late” Ginza Plaza. I am looking forward for it to be fully completed though.. Can’t wait to see the water features and the full range of stores!
Had lunch ard WCP area and decided to proceed down to Jurong Point for a movie… Haaa… And what a total contrast between WCP and JP!! JP is as usual crowded with buzzing shops and endless shoppings to do! Luckily I am in my “de-cluttering” stage of my life… If not I will surely end up with a few more pieces of treasured “clutter” (clothes, bags, toys…) as there are sales going on everywhere!!! Kekeke…
Oh, and below is my personal review of Beverly Hills Chihuahua:

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…

Credit also goes to the prodution team that predicts the possible Chihuahua craze after the movie and added a note asking viewers to be prepared to be life owners of any pets and consider thoroughly before making a wise choice. Very responsible. =)
Plots are rather heartwarming but predictable. Humors inserts are pretty good, with a fair bit of adult slapsticks to entertain the grownups that brought the kids in…
All in all worth watching on a weekday, or just wait for the DVD! =P
Haaa… 1.48am… Finally I can go grab some slp before 2am after all these late nights recently…
Sweet dreams rainy Singapore…

Fun + Super Packed = Fun Packed Weekend? Who cares? *BeamZ* =P

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…

Heee… A bit like Primary School Standard but its the thoughts that counts!
Congratulations Mummy and Daddy!!!!!

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.
