Michael Bay & Steven Spielberg has done it again! It was a brilliant movie and I have to say it’s already one of my favourite movies of all time! Well.. maybe cause as a kid i enjoyed watching the cartoon version and everything about Transformers in fact!

There was lots of ‘BayWatch’ like slow mo scenes in the movie.. must have been Michael Bay’s thing with Pearl Harbour in the past… with Megan Fox running, sweating and in dirt and alll… it was Epic!

Cameran angles and Megan Fox in apple bottom jeans... leaning on a hot bike... What an epic moment!

We ate at Groovy groovy Sushi Groove… Actually compared to the last time i went to Sushi Groove (over 2 years ago!), the quality of the food was much better than last time and now they are having promotion on 50%off on selected items and the food was of satisfactory level! Nothing much to shout about its just honest, decent food at a good price!

After eating we headed straight for the movie that we have been dying to watch!

Confessions!

Confessions!

I must say Confessions of A shopaholic from the movie and the book is so  erm different (as per normal with movies nowadays.. I call it the Harry Potter effect). Ok.. the book Confessions of A Shopaholic is the first book in a 5 part collection series of Rebecca Bloomwood’s life. The movie showed from the first book to the 3rd or 4th book compressed in a one hour and a half film! I tell you! The movie was very speedy! The small little details from the first book and second are all like.. not existant in the movie! And actually she only meets the editor of the Savings magazine on the 3rd book! That was how compressed the movie was!

But on a lighter note. For those who have not read the book.. I would say that it was a fun and entertaining movie.. well so are all chick flicks!  It was really good and there were lots of ‘oooo’, ‘Ahh’ and other expressions from the audiences in the movie theatre.

Here are the quotes that I love from the movie:

I can’t find the quote to my favourite line in the movie. It is when Rebecca Bloomwood was at one her first meeting at the Shopaholic Anonymous where she just describesthe feeling of shopping! I was like drulling and like going crazy in my heart like I wanna explode! 😀

“When I was 7 most of my friends stopped believing in magic. That’s when I first started. They were beautiful, they were happy. They didn’t even need any money, they had magic cards.”

“You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that’s what it’s like when I see a store. Only it’s better.”

“We all have a destiny in life and since 14 I knew I was put on this earth to shop.”

“I’m Rebecca Bloomwoodand I’m a shopaholic.”

I’ve made so many mistakes and I feel like taking this job would be another one.”

“When I shop the world gets better, the world is better; and then it’s not anymore and I have to do it again.”

I just loved those quotes! I was like going to stand up and run out of the cinema and head straight to Zara! LOL!

THere will definately be a sequel to the movie haha! There are more to the series! (hints: think.. marriage, babies?) Oops! hehe…

My rating : 6/10

After the movie, us three went to Zara straight to have a look at their SALE, pity its only the lady’s stuff having the major mark downs.. I kinda won’t be surprised if saw a mob of ladies lining up in waiting to enter the sale and grab and fight over the clothes just like in Shopaholic hehe… I saw a really nice pair of sneakers in Zara.. maybe getting my new pair soon! My converse is in a mess!

Movie Review: How To Lose Friends & Alienate People

Genre: Comedy

Starring: Simon Pegg, Megan Fox, Kirsten Dunst, Danny Huston, Gillian Anderson, Max  Minghella, Jeff Bridges
Director: Robert B. Weide

Sidney is a disillusioned person who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame, glitz and the glamour. His magazine, Post Modern Review, Makes fun at the media obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the diametrically opposed conservative New York based Sharps magazine its something of a shock! It seems Sharps editor Clayton Harding is amused by Young’s disruption of a post-BAFTA party with a pig posing as Babe. Thus begins Sidney’s descent into success – his gradual move from derided outsider to confidante of starlet Sophie Maes – and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen, that will either make him or break him.

Official synopsis taken from IMDB
DannyBoy’s Review
Absolutely brilliant movie! Simon Pegg’s portrayal of Sidney Young is just so fantastic, and the perfect British actor to portray a funny, arrogant Sidney which is perfect, as his character in the movie is a newbie into the media world. 
The storyline is great as it can be related to real life as it shows how someone’s dreams can be fulfilled if you just do your best and someone times you meet those people who are just a nuisance and always looking to piss you off, but as you persevere you can go higher and be more successful than other people. And also that you someones get people who are willing to help you in the workplace to help you fit in. 
The one of the biggest lessons that I can take away from  this movie is that when you have an idea you have to stand firm and believe in your own idea in order to get your idea across and make people understand your idea.. or else it will be ignored or think of as a useless idea, but if they did thought that, then don’t take it too much but take it as an encouragement and motivation to do better and analyse what went wrong and this will ultimately make you a stronger and better person.
My rating? 
7.5 /10 
Its a fantastic and brilliant movie! Hilarious!

1st Day of Christmas!

Hey all!
Wow! Has it been a long and busy day!

25th Dec, the day that Jesus was born, the 1st day of Christmas, the first day of presents and the first day of food!

In the morning we went to our Christmas service at 9:30 a.m

Pastor Vincent gave a Christmas sermon. 
Lots of people! 
Special presentation “Gift of Love” 

Worship team led in carols and worship songs!

So as the service ends with some more carols, everybody is either making a rush out of the service to receive a 2009 calendar/ planner, rushing out before the jam congestion at the parking lot or like me and my friends, hang around and chat and ultimately exchange presents!

Mingle, mingle, mingle…

 

Esther and Sarah both busy giving out gifts! 

3 angels??

Grace & myself

Esther, myself & Sarah

 

John & Esther

yea.. it was fun… haha! I will post the present I got on another post. This post is going to be long enuf!

After the service, my parents dropped my bro and I at One U to do some more Christmas present shopping.. I didn’t drive because…. IT WAS SO FREAKIN JAM!!!!



Deng.. good thing we stay so near One Utama!

Well there are just so much stuff going on in One Utama!

Packed restaurant!

 

Sales!

 

Christmas Presentations
Crowd!

I went there earlier as well to collect tickets for the movie, Australia, for the evening. Haha.. I really do NOT feel sorry for these suckers who have to line up!

Haha! Gosh! Good luck to them XD

So after a rest at home we headed back to One U for the movie at 5:30 p.m. GOOD THING, that most of the crowd has left the mall and we managed to find a parking straight away!


Australia was a Freakin’ Good movie! I hardly rated a good movie this year and I hardly ever give higher than a 7 in a rating out of 10. but Australia scored 9 out of 10 in my books! Brilliant movie! It was a 3 hour long movie and it is also an oscar winning movie for sure.

The movie is basically set post Second World War in Australia where a british aristocrat inherited a cattle ranch in Australia and face a hard life while at her time there and she also found love!

It is a brilliant movie, I suggest you go watch it with your mates, partners, family, it is great!

After the movie we were feeling hungry, while deciding on where to feast, I was watching a live Jazz performance by Jazza Nova and they played really good renditions of Christmas Carols such as Silent Night, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and other old classic numbers of Christmas.

I must say they were fantastic… They could be better with me on the Electric guitar hehe. Jazz and Blues is my forte!

Ok.. back to today.. .

The singer and Bassist smiled at me for this shot! Lucky-nia ;p 

The cool saxophonist doing his solo. Deng.. Saxophones are deng cool instruments

After they finished their performance, we decided to eat at New York, New Yor Deli. Located opposite Cold Storage in the New Wing. 

The first thing I noticed about the restaurant, was that the seats of the restaurant was a typical American Diner Style, with the plush seats and the C Shaped seats. Very American feel. Brought back some old memories when I was staying in New York as a kid.

Classic C shaped chairs that you see in Diners and also in movies like 10 things I Hate About You, The OC, 90210, in typical teen movies where you can see them. Another thing that made it very American was that there were Chilli and Tomato sauce tubes on the table. Really American, they are just missing the Pepper & Salt shakers.

Mum wasn’t so hungry so she decided to get a soup and share dad’s food.

Mum’s Pumpkin Patch Soup

 

Dad’s Turkey Bacon Cheese Burger

 

John’s Latino Chicken Chop
My Cheesy Chicken (Half a bird!)

Man! The food was DELICIOUS! It really did bring me back to memory lane as I reminisce on the real authentic American food. It is definitely worth going and you guys will see me there quite often from now on haha.. Though there is a bad thing about New York Deli..

The food service was so slow! We waited about 20 mins for our food! My dad had to complain a few times as it was 9 p.m after dinner hours and there were only a few tables still eating and the food took 30 mins to arrive! That was quite bad.. Good thing that the food tasted great.. that was their saving grace!

Well it is a busy Christmas for my family today. Not the usual stuff that we normally do during this time of the year. But all in all it was a fun Christmas.

Let me leave you drooling over the pictures of the Menu of New York New York Deli. 😀
