Movie Date: UP!

OMGoshICantBelieveIHadNotWatchThisMovieBeforeToday!! I love this movie!!! It just made me laugh, and smile and tear up a lil bit. It's just so cute I just want to cuddle that fat dog!! And little mailman!! XD Oh I don't know how I could miss this movie when it was airing on the Disney Channel. My brother and sister both have watched it! But not ME!

I love Disney movies. My fave thus far is probably Toy Story. Who doesn't love toys that comes to live? :D And Up is one that's almost up there. Up up and away ;). I just love how the Carl is so stubborn and yet loving at the same time. I guess he is bitter cause he is alone and that kid just came into his life. Aww so sweet. Tugs at my heart. :) I'd love to watch it again. Like all Disney movies, you can never watch them too many times.

This movie is a must watch for those family nights. <3<3

Game 3: Victory!

Another week another victory! It was a very close game, as in 1-2 and the 2nd goal came with a lil relieve~ Pheww~! OMG what if it was a draw?? No way~! :) Another one of Walcott's amazing goal assist from Van Persie before he had to be replace by Chamakh. I think Van Persie have some kind of BPL curse cause he keep getting injured during the season which always keep him off the first 11 team. Get well soon VP!

Today's goal was from Walcott and Arshavin (my Russian turtle!! XD) I think Arshavin goal is a good one, almost missing it out but really close. Thankfully Arsenal won!! During the first half I kinda thought they were a a bit off on their game, but after the they came back, the game run a lot smoothly. Arsene Wenger's men really are amazing!

Lucky I found a pic of them together :D

Other result from the Premier League:

Tottenham Hotspur 0 - 1 Wigan Athletics (Wigan's first win!!)
Wolverhampton Wonderers 1 - 1 Newcastle United
Blackpool 2 - 2 Fulham
Chelsea 2 - 0 Stoke City
Manchester Utd 3 - 0 West Ham Utd

I see that Manchester Utd is very persistent in scoring big numbers, I just hope that some unknown club can beat them bad XD Chelsea is doing real well too...

Movie Date: The tooth fairy

I like the Rock, as in The Rock in funny, family comedy...great for kids. Honestly I didn't think I would like this movie. But I did!! And it was funny and entertaining, it was easy understood. :) And the tough looking The Rock being a tooth fairy in hilarious!!! I actually turned on this movie to help me fall asleep but I ended up watching it till the end. That's how good it was. And who doesn't love Julie Andrews??

My fave scene XD

Movie Date: Sex and the city vol 1

Last week I saw Sex and the city, the movie...after watching Sex and the City 2. Weird much? I never really am a big fan of Sex and the city tv series, heck I have never watched a single episode. I think I am the only one in the entire universe that have NEVER ever watch a single of episode of Sex and the city (maybe not including my mom and dad, and grandma and grandpa...). OK maybe I am not the only one but still...I hear a lot of people talking about it, and the hype...I just cave in and watched it. I don't really see the big hype about how great the movie is...it is about 4 besties with a lot of time for shopping :P and to date hot guys. I like it ok, it was funny in certain parts. Will I watch it again? Maybe, depending if I was really bored or have nothing else to watch.

I liked it enough to watch the whole movie tho, so I think that deserve a thumbs up. :) This is the first time I watch Sarah Jessica Parker actually act (I think).

Game 2 in hand: Arsenal vs Blackpool

Can we say Walcott?! W A L C O T T!! Walcott was awesome!! Since the first game was kinda disappointing (cause they didn't win...at least they didn't lose right?) the second game was AWESOME! and then some. XD They won like 6 - 0. I didn't really think they would win that big...but yay! I was literally screaming from my seat...haha. I have to give Blackpool credit for the awesome display of footworks but the score reflect which was a better team. A R S E N A L!!

Walcott scored 3 goals that night, Arshavin 1, Diaby 1 and Chamakh for a corner kick by Van Persie. Can't wait for their next match this weekend. Saturday...wonder if their matches are all on Saturdays? :) Woohooo! Next Saturday they play Blackburn Rovers. :)

Another signing

Updated via Twitter: Jay Simpson has signed with another team. To be specific Hull City. Just more new for me to fear this year season...we need more aspiring players Arsene Wenger!! But I do believe we can do it!!

Image from Arsenal.com

Arsenal will take Blackpool on the 21st at 1500 hrs (England time).

Movie Date: Brooklyn's Finest

Ok honestly I think this movie is a lil boring, I didn't have high hopes of it anyway before I began watching but I had it on my lappie so what the heck right? Wrong...at least I had other stuff to do like FB (MW, FV etc etc). If you like cops story/undercover, lil action then here ya go. It has a decent storyline altho I think I might have watched this movie before o.O. Then it was just a waste of time when I could've been watching another movie!!! :-/ Ah well..at least that's one down 98498988917484758973 to go o.O. I didn't really like the ending of it tho, everyone died...except Richard Gere's character...and he was retired anyway. Too bad.

Utter disappointment...at least for me

I was looking forward to the Liverpool vs Arsenal clash Sunday night, to a lil disappointment ...to me anyway. No Arsenal didn't lose nor did they win. Disappointing right? They level 1 all with Liverpool. I mean a bad start could be a bad end for Arsenal. I am not high on hope. They have been so close in the last few years...yet VERY far. They have lost some key players before the season starts. And not winning the Liverpool match really makes me worry. I know it is just one game but Chelsea beat West Brom 6 - 0, now thats saying much??

Before the start of the season (YAY! Season officially starts!!) there was a lot of rumors about losing Cesc Fabregas. I was really really nervous about losing him to Barcelona. We all know Barcelona is the IT team right now but I don't really watch La Liga and it is kinda boring so losing Cesc to Barcelona would suck. But lo and behold he did stick around the Emirates for I think at least one more season (lets hope I am wrong). So welcome home Cesc Fabregas.

Google here

Arsenal did lose a few players before the season, one which I was really disappoint was Eduardo. He was a surprise move to me. I thought he would've stayed at least till his contract ends or till Arsenal at least win something (anything for that matter it is getting a lil frustrated). Eduardo moved to Shakhtar Donetsk. He will be missed.

Google images

Another upsetting move was Philippe Senderos. After a loan spell last season and coming back not playing a game (that I know of) I was hoping to see him play this season. Then I learned that he has made a move to Fulham. I actually liked his skills defending the goal.

Google image

A little while back, in May one of my many fave player in the Arsenal team Fran Merida moved back to Spain to Atletico Madrid after 4 years after joining Arsenal. I like Merida, altho he rarely plays for the first 11. I know how it is in the football world. You need playing time not just sitting there watching people play. He is very talented, plays a lil like Fabregas that's why I like his plays. I hope he makes an impact where he is now. I do hope Carlos Vela won't be leaving Arsenal soon...not yet anyway I think he has the potential to play a lot this season.

Google here

Arsenal also lost 3 key defenders, William Gallas, Mikael Silvestre and Sol Campbell. Altho Campbell just joined them last year briefly I think they three of them will be missed and I hope Arsenal defense is improving. Sol Campbell will always be a Gunner :). Gallas reportedly made a move to Juventus. Silvestre on the other hand came from Man Utd, and just a brief stay at Emirates Stadium made a move before this season starts to Al Jazira.

Overall, they did sign 2 new players this year, Marouane Chamkh, and Laurent Koscielny. I hope they can make a big impact in the premier league this season.

I guess may the best team win.

Movie Date: The A-Team

So I have heard that this movie was good...but they never told me it was GREAT! It actually reminds me of Ocean trilogy. I like it. It's funny in a way, and there's Bradley Cooper in it, even better! I bet my mom will love this movie...Gotta tell mom. One of those killing/army/combat movies that I don't mind to watch. Maybe I should give Avatar a try...I heard it is GOOD. Altho I never watched the original movie...

Movie Date: Night at the Museum 2

I think this came out like last year but I didn't get to see it, so I watched it today! XD Was funny, love the movie. :) But I don't really think I want museums here to come to live. It is just a lil creepy... Anyway for me I'd give it a 2 thumbs up. Gotta love Ben Stiller and the monkeys! (They also had a humango Paul the octopus in this one XD what are the odds??)

Kuching Food Festival

I got a text today that sounds like this:

"Wanna go to the food fair?" - Jaq

Ok not exactly like that but close enough, I was like "Hell yeah!" and literally was shaken with excitement. I mean, 1. I've never been to the city food fair before, 2. I was so bored (was actually at a saloon with my sister and I got my hair cut! No more long curly hair *sob sob sob*), 3. I actually have somewhere to go! See my Kuching isn't as boring as I thought it was! XD

It feels like I am at a foreign land, Taiwan? XD

Kidding, Kuching isn't that boring. Last week there was the Regatta, that I didn't go because my cousin's wedding was going on. Then other stuff just keep popping up like mushrooms around here. I need to keep my eyes open. :D

Looking for something special.

So yeah we went there, at about 7pm. It was already packed with people and food and people with food!! XD my kinda place. Yummersss...... everywhere!We actually had a hard time finding anything to eat. You would think with tons of stalls selling food you'd go "Yes! I want that." but you know it's not true. You would contemplate on getting this or that then at the end you end up with nothing. LOL but we didn't end up with nothing. My friend Jaq wanted something "special" but we didn't know what that special something is. So we walked around for a bit and ended up at this one stall. They sell a bunch of hotdogs, crab cakes, and other delicious finger food. I was a lil skeptical cause I was afraid that I couldn't eat any and it turns out that they were vegetarian food. Heaven! We ordered a few sticks and they taste just like hotdogs and meat but they weren't. I love vegetarian food!

Our vegetarian finger food, taste like chicken!

We couldn't find a place to sit so we walked summore. There was sushi place, and Korean food stall, Thai food stall, some local foods such as satay and such, a ton of stalls. We ended up at a stall that sells octo-balls. :P We made a fun of the balls...lol. And I said they cut up Paul the octopus to make the balls. o.O Poor Paul (I hope you are still safe in Germany!). She had that and I bought some Emperor Dragon Whisker Sweet - yums! It is a dessert like candy and it actually look like it had whiskers. Haha which was kinda funny when I was eating it.

Squid balls XD

My peanut ice cream that kinda taste like coconut, but real good. :D

They are making emperor dragon whisker sweet - my fave!

The peanut ice cream wrapped in a pancake thingy, maybe crepe?

Hanging out at Kado.

A distance away there was this lady selling peanut ice-cream. And I love me some ice-cream so I bought it. It was pretty good. Taste a lil like coconut and peanut with vanilla ice-cream but not bad. Not really a big fan of coconut but it was manageable. :D The vanilla ice cream was place on top of ground nuts and then rolled in a pancake like thingy. Yumms~~

We ended up going to this one cafe named Kado (which I have never been to before) when it started to drizzle and it was a false alarm. It didn't even rain...bleh! Kado was a great hangout place. The ambiance is really nice, romantic and stylish. They have different sections and we sat at the back room where the setting was very romantic. It has like a Moroccan style setting where you can choose to sit on the floor or a lil sitting area with sectional dividers for privacy. Really looking forward to bring CLK for dinner there.

Altho we didn't eat anything cause we just had some stuff at the fair it was a nice place to chill. :D Definitely going back there with my cousin and friends. To boot it has free wifi. LOL added bonus! Then I got so sleepy from talking that we decided to head home. This might actually be a really interesting Sunday for me. XD

Pretty Little Liars

I recently watched Pretty Little Liars after watching TiffanyD's video on her July faves on MakeupByTiffanyD channel. OMG, I got hooked! I as always, don't read the books. It is geared towards tweens, cause of the HS setting and such but the storyline is really interesting. I am up to episode 3 but I want to catch up. They have 9 episodes available so I can't wait.

You should check the episodes out. One of the girls, Aria, reminds me of Selena Gomes but I think Selena is cuter. But the girls are pretty believable tho. :D Very intriguing.

End of the month wedding

July 31st my cousin's wedding. :) I was in the month you know, so I was skeptical about going to the wedding but since he's my cousin might as well. And it turns out I had a great time!! I met all these family/extended family/relatives that I haven't seen in a long time. :) Really give me the feeling of being home, away from home. <3 My aunts that I have not seen in years, look real good and some grand aunts that I forgotten I am related to (yeah I have a huge extended family that sometimes I don't recognize people, and they recognize me..I know I am bad with names).

So I ended up going there for about 5 hours, for a wedding. Longest wedding I have ever been to. And they are not even mine! Anyway, hung out with cousins that I rarely hung out with, found out one of my cousins' wife had a baby boy (yay nephew!), took pics (non of it is any good but I'll share cause I am great like that) and ate a lot of yummy food. :D Traditional cakes and cookies if you wanna call it that. ^_^ I couldn't be happier.

*bride and groom has arrived*

*sitting there and looking pretty - typical Malay wedding*

*food, it was pretty good*

*snacks courtesy of the groom's mom, my aunt :D*

*these are REALLY good, and they look real normal*

It was a great weekend, and I am marked for 2 more family weddings till December. Ooo, can't wait.
