movers coming thru...

since i'm kinda bored oredi with updating different stuff in separate places, my facebook n friendster n here as well, i decided to move any movie or book review i feel compelled to write on from friendster to here.. so here goes another one..

went on a date to watch prince caspian the other day.. no actually not to watch it specifically but juz to shop around n ended watching the movie in between shopping.. i think it is safe to say that the movie is 'safe'... not that interesting tp not that it makes u snore in public either... but then again its hard for me to fall asleep in cinemas so i can never tell... hehehe..

well, the prince is easy on the eyes (to think that he's my age! ;)).. tp kinda naive n i dint fancy the accent.. its somewhat like the previous movie la... nothing to go ga-ga about... tp i can tell u one thing... its actually better than the book... which is totally opposite from what usually happened - i.e. u read the story n have high expectations when u head to the cinema, n end up disappointed when the movie is not ambitious as u want it to be (as happened to me everytime i go to watch the first few harry potter movies) sorry c.s. lewis but i prefer adamson.. the one character i liked most was the totally cute mouse warrior chief 'who' always throw in a nice remark whenever needed... kinda reminded me of the cat in shrek 2..

most of the time if i want to watch a movie i always read what 'the star' has to say about it... they were ruthless when it comes to giving stars to newly released movies and they were usually right... n for this movie they were right again! well the reviewer stil liked lewis better than adamson but he's right on it being forgettable.. u can read the full review here...

DC my hero!!

i didnt watch the AI when it was aired live, juz watched the rerun in starworld (6-8pm then sambung plk from 8-10pm..biar betul si starworld nih) i'm soooo glad david cook won!! well michael johns stil reigns in my heart but DC comes a close second.. love his raspy voice especially when he sang 'hero' my favourite song (si DA tu nyebok je nak duet2 plk.. suara xkena langsung dgn lagu tuh..) although xmengancam like chad kroeger punye version of 'hero', tp tetap sedap... whatever it is i'm juz happy DA didnt win.. hahahaha..

long due post

planned to post this sooner tp byk keje la... so blk umah melepek je... terus tido... so, what i did for my mothers on their mothers day? xde pape pun... my MIL in terengganu, my mom in Saudi (yes, she's stil work there as a nurse) n i'm in kl, so no get together thingy done... i managed to send my moms a mother's day mms n talk to them.. it's been a while.. i was brought up in a family where celebrating is not that practised so its not very habitual for me... but thats not an excuse no?

one funny thing, i actually tried to send my MIL a mother's day card from both me n my cik abg... i asked him his hometown address, then he sms it to me... fine la, then i posted it... after a few days i wondered if my MIL has gotten the card, sbb she dint call, which she usually did if anything.. so i asked my abg again, 'betul ke abg bagi address tuh, mcm len mcm je no dia....' true enuf, when he checked back his i.c(!!!) rupanya dia bagi address salah no.... how on earth did that happen???!! felt like laughing n strangling him at the same time... but what to do? stil my abg no..? i still love u although u forget ur home address (that must mean u think about me so much u forget evrything else! ;) )

ouh... i also went to scholl warehouse sale i told u in the last post with my sis.. rolled up my sleeves n fish out some pairs that caught my eyes from the heaps of sandals .. although had to push around a bit (no choice, other ppl were pushing me too! but not so much la bcoz ramai makcik2 n kakak2.. hehehe) watching others, i couldnt imagine how on sweet earth those ah so(s) carry sooooo many pairs with them while fishing around for more! like, between me n my sis, carrying 4-6 pairs at a time was hard enuf.. hmmm... maybe should come for things like this more to learn the art... hahahaha.. bought some for us n a pair for my mom... hopefully it fits..

iron man!!!!

dah lama gila ok since i went to a proper wayang.. being a lazy bum that i am, i always asked me dear cik abg to download n burn movies or series that i wanna watch (see... even THAT pun i dint do...i juz watch.. lol ;)) juz cuddle n go on marathons of desperate housewives (i practically dragged my dear abg to watch these with me for hours) n house n supernatural n bleach n naruto plus movies during weekends..

last weekend was one of the more exciting
weekend of my mundane n routine life... we watched ironman (duh... wayang je... i told u my life IS mundane)!!!!! i dint plan to watch this movie out of the dozens summer releases for this year, but i'm glad i did!! it was surprisingly good.. robert downey jr IS THE MAN!! he's definitely in his elements.. a very good potrayal of tony stark.. the outfit superb too!! the technology mmg far-fetched la... tersgt la canggihnye, but its a comic character anyway so who cares if it makes sense or not... hehehe... n technology for weaponry dah sgt evolved oredi, its juz that its not publicised so much, we sometimes overlooked it.. who knows if the pentagon or secret service or mossad or taliban or kgb or north korea or any body build yet another spying or asssasinating device or jets with mach 15 or nuclear bombs out there....???? ok ok skrg aku dah melalut... lol.. so back to the weekend...

i oso went for mph booksales on sunday morning.. thanks to miss farina i overspent my budget for books this month... kehkehkeh.. but honestly i'm really glad i went... thanks babe! a lot of books were on sale n the biggest bargain that i grabbed was a compilation of narnia stories which retailed at rm79.90 n sold there at rm18..yeay for me!!!

next stop for this weekend... (hopefully can go!!!!! (batting my short unmascara-ed eyelashes)
pweeetttyyy pweeeasssseeeee!!!)
