Chinese New Year & Valentine’s Day

Before I start ranting….

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR
&
VALENTINE’S DAY PEOPLE!


It feels so long since I posted sth about myself on this blog. It seems like everyday just get shorter as u get older. That makes me sound like I’m damn old. lol But seriously, it’s true. Apparently, it seems like the older we grow, the more we see the importance and significance of different people who walked in and out of our lives. Hence, every precious free time we have, we tend to want to spend with them and cherish every moment. And that’s precisely why no time for blogging, gaming, and every other things that we used to be able to spend so much time on during childhood. Sad? Yes and No. It gives us a completely different feeling and experience so it’s not really comparable. It’ll be best if we can have the best of everything. (suddenly think of Miley Cyrus – Best of Both World).

Anyway, let’s go to CNY and V day part. Before going off for CNY holiday, me and my colleagues/friends had a sport cum Chinatown outing on Friday. It was a day full of mixed emotion. It was a lot of fun, stress, sadness and worries. I worked, I ate, I chit-chat, I played sport, I went out, I panicked then I stayed over. Friday, 12 Feb 2010, I’m going to remember this date. Overall, I’d still say it’s a very fun day despite the fact that I lost my phone and wallet. Better still was that I learned sth through the whole experience. Never change to different court half way during ur play and never let your friend give you a lift, and take MRT instead…LOL just kidding. Through this, I learned that I need people around me more than I think I do. I also learned that every little good deeds that each of us accumulate would not go to waste. It’ll be returned to us in one way or another. Be it meeting nice people, knowing good friends, or being helped by very nice strangers. Most of the time, we’d just give the credit to luck and fate for all these things. But personally, I do believe that what we do to everybody everyday does influence the luck and fate that we have with people.

And that was the pre-CNY celebration. What about the days itself? It sucks. And by falling Valentine’s day, it makes it double suck. Now, there’s tight slap on my consciousness saying “you don’t have family and you’re single.” Ouch… A “lonely unloved orphan” can almost perfectly describe my situation. Okay maybe I kinda dramatize that a little a bit (to get some sympathy). Teehee! 😛  I do have family, it’s just that I’m unable to be with them where they are right now.. thanks to all the people who decided to travel at the same damn time on the same airline. .\    /. But again this is the only time they can travel and it’s the only airline they can take. hmm… then who to blame? Never mind forget it. Joking asides, CNY never fail to remind me of how much I need my family. Being away from them for close to 8 years, I may have become ignorant and think that I’m independent enough. But what I tend to overlook is the fact that providing support is not just only thing family do but they also provides a medium for each of us to share our joy and happiness, especially during occasions like this. And that is definitely not sth we can grow independent of.

Finally, I hope everyone out there is having a great Chinese New Year and a sweet Valentine’s day. With that, ciao.

Chinese New Year & Valentine’s Day

Hannah Montana The Movie (2009)


My Rating:

If you’ve been following Hannah Montana the Disney series then there is no need for introduction to this movie. And if you haven’t, then there’s no reason you would want to see this movie.

First of all, I really didn’t expect Hannah Montana the Movie to actually put me to tears. Totally didn’t see that coming. Am I that emo? Nah… don’t think so. Maybe I cried coz the movie was too suck and I realized I wasting my precious life time watching it and now having to write about it. But seriously, I have to admit that I find it good. Suddenly it reminds me about a youtube video that I watched where the guy was asking “what your shame show?” Shame show is basically a show that you’re ashame or embarrassed to admit that you like/love it for some reasons. For my case, Hannah Montana the series and movie have to be my shame show.

If you like Miley or Hannah Montana or you’re an emo person then go see this. lol

The Ugly Truth (2009)


My Rating:

It’s funny that I reviewed Law Abiding Citizen and Gamer before this. By right it should come first but I was just too excited to babble about the other 2. The Ugly Truth is uglily (Dictionary.com says there is such word) true, at least to a certain extent. Some of I find to be very much exaggerated from an Asian man point of view. I don’t know if it’s 100% true for western guys.

The Ugly Truth is funny, humorous and hot! Katherine Heigl + Gerard Butler = Fire! =3 Definitely one of my favorite romance comedy. But don’t trust me on this because apparently, all the 3 romance comedy starring Katherine Heigl that I’ve seen in recent years (Knocked Up, 27 Dresses and This) seem to be my favorites. Sooo I don’t know if I’m being biased.

Lastly, I would like to quote my favorite part of the conversations in the movie. When Abby said, “Just! I don’t want to be perceived as a bimbo I mean..” and Mike replied “And I don’t want you to be a bimbo. You have to be 2 people. The saint and the sinner. The librarian and a stripper…” It’s so true, period.

Gamer (2009)


My rating:

Gamer is awesome! Gerrard Butler is on fire. He’s been right on it since last year’s Rock ‘n Rolla. Then he started 2009 with the romance comedy, The Ugly Truth and this, before going on to Law Abiding Citizen. In Law Abiding Citizen, he has the brain, and in Gamer, he has the brute.

Gamer is a visualization of one possible outcome of our society resulting from the exponentially advancing technology and our perpetually growing appetite for better entertainment experience. If we look at the surface, Gamer is pretty much a bluff because quite positively, we (or at least I) don’t think that society will ever progress in that that direction. The government and us ourselves wouldn’t let that happen, I believe. In fact, Gamer makes the idea of Surrogates sounds much more possible to me. However, if we look at it metaphorically, it appears more of a sarcastic exaggeration made to mock today society.

What is fascinating about Gamer for me is the fact that not only it gives me entertainment and actions but also a strong controversial message as a fruit for thought. Bottom line, Love it~! go check it out!

9 (2009)


My Rating:

9 is yet another great highly detailed 3D graphic piece of this 3D age of cinema. So many of them just keep coming nowadays that I have difficulties telling which one is good. In the earlier days, it usually the quality of the graphic that matters but now that it no longer does, I find myself not really having much opinion on it. If I’m not wrong, 9 is based on a certain book which quite obviously I’ve never heard of.

So basically, all I have to say about this movie is that the setting is well designed and the characters are unique and original. Plot-wise, I do not find it anymore impressive than any other 3D animation movies I’ve seen in 2009. Well, if it is anything positively contribute to the plot I would say that 9 has a story compared to the others, say for instance Monsters vs Aliens, which has a plot for children where you can more or less predict the whole movie, what it’s gonna go,  who’s gonna win, and how it’s gonna end.
