Edge of tomorrow

Sejak dah ada anak dua lagi susah nak spend masa utk get to know each other. Bayangkan dgn kerja dan tanggungjawab kepada keluarga walhal kita kena “uruskan emosi pasangan” bak kata Ustazah Norhafizah yang lembut tu. Spending our hard-to-be-spent time watching Imax together should be one of our moments yang perlu diingatkan tatkala rumahtangga diuji dengan emotional turmoil.

Review: Robin Hood

Between Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood, I choose Robin Hood because it is historical (some say it’s mythical) but I believe it is partly true because Robin had lived in disguise.Robin Hood provokes issues and some thinking.

During my childhood, I watched Robin Hood and his merry men on TV. The story of a witty bandit robbing the rich to give the poor is heroic. This time around Ridley Scott brings a different version of Robin Hood. I thank Ridley Scott for making my grey matter gets going as I watch his movie.

Please, Alice.

When I watched Alice in The Wonderland, I feel there’s an invisible hand gave a hard slap on my face. Pang. Why? It had mad me realize that:

  1. I haven’t been doing creative writing for quite a long time. Even my latest one is a crap. C’mon. It doesn’t make sense and it doesn’t provoke any kind of thinking.
  2. I am actually able to make my own decision without being influenced by anyone and I am my own master. I am an easily influenced person. I am easily carried away by emotion and stress lately. I should be more like Alice. Start a journey that can make me find my ‘muchness’.
  3. I shouldn’t give in to anything that intimidate me. Like, my stress or my ***s.
  4. I haven’t make my dream come true yet. Too much hard work and less thinking had castrate my brain.  My dream of becoming a poet or a writer hasn’t been start. I haven’t started the journey. I am far from my dream.
  5. My thinking cap doesn’t work well lately.
  6. I dream less. It’s not a sin to be a dreamer and I used to be it. A dreamer will be able to rhyme, frolicking, dance with no one and talk to the mirror. Ops I forgot. Talking (or writing) nonsense is part of it too (like Lewis Caroll).

Since Tim Burton’s latest masterpiece was an eye-opener, I hope I’ll be more independent in making decision and braver.

Ps (self-note in case I forgot in the future): This is our second Tim Burton after Sweeney Todd.


I thought it’s a chick flix due to its title. Well, I was wronged (moral: never ever judge a movie by its title). I thought it’s almost similar to Johnny Depp’s Chocolate but actually it’s a Thai action movie.

The intro, which was read by a kakkoii Japanese actor, gave me a blow.

Movie that I’m addicted to

We believe in destiny because we met because of the destiny.

If you haven’t watch “Slumdog millionaire”, I highly recommend that movie for you. It was inspired by a novel (Q & A by Vikas Swarup), produced using low budget. The actors are using British accent (with some mixture of Indian accent as well) and they are not A-list actors and actresses, mind you. They are from slums and nobody. But the movie have become a phenomenon in any cinema worldwide. This movie is discussed widely, because of its’ religious issues, poverty, romanticism and all. This movie is worth to be watched many times and in case you want to buy the original DVD or Blue-ray disc. I give three thumbs up for this movie! Continue reading

indulge in reminiscence

Lately I am addicted to classical stuffs. I’ve watched black and romantic movies (Roman Holiday, Casablanca), the great love story that runs for almost 4 hours ‘Gone with the wind’, the ‘Ghost’ movie starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, The English patient, and Out of Africa (I think Meryl Streep looks beautiful in it). And heck, watching romantic movies makes me become more soapy. My mom was quite disturbed by my boohoo. She can hear me from downstairs. Hahah. Another current activity is, I am addicted to a particular classical song from The Shirelles.

Will You Still Love Me Tommorow – Shirelles

Tonight you’re mine completely
You give you love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment’s pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I’m the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun?

I’d like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?


So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

A stockpile of chocolates is the best companion.  Huu nom nom nom.

Mamma Mia! The Movie

It’s coming worldwide. The famous musical is finally being filmed and Pierce Brosnan is in! How cool is that? I don’t care if he can’t sing but I know the fact that he can act. I miss his appearance on the screen and I’m glad he’ll be in Mamma Mia!. More good news (hold your chair ladies and gentlemen) Nuffnang is giving FREE TICKETS for lucky Nuffnangers!

I should sing: Pierce Brosnan, how can I resist you?

Since I used to be in Plymouth, I know the fact that musical or theater is being showed in Plymouth first rather than London (because Plymouth’s audience is hard to be pleased). And Mamma Mia has travelled wide and far ever since. So, Mamma Mia! musical have been going around and still received great applause. Not it has moved to a greater step, Hollywood.

Uhhh, I can’t wait to hear their British accent (well except, Meryl Streep).

If it gives the same impact like musical, people will be singing and humming, although the movie ended. If you’re lucky, some might be dancing merrily. So, who’s going to put on retro fashion back?
