Movie Date: Underworld:- Awakening

Here's the thing. When you I plan to do things in advance, lets say a week, I never get around to it. There would always be things getting in the way, laziness (my nemesis) and all that jazz. So when my friend texted me Friday afternoon wondering if I wanted to watch Underworld (I think the most awesome-sauce Vampire/Werewolf movie ever, next to Blade) I say - hell yeah, why not? (See...so impulsive and no plans required.)

Have you seen this movie? I don't want to spoil it for whom ever have not watch this yet but oh I like it and dislike it at the same time. Can that be possible??! I think this movie and Blade trilogy is the top of my vampire vs werewolf movies. I wish, I really wish that this movie was longer and the story line is a lot more crazy! I was hoping to see the vampire elders in movie no.4 but no luck. It has been 3 years since the 3rd movie. I know because it was one of the movies I brought CLK to watch the first time he came to visit, and that was 3 years ago. It was his first Underworld movie and he was hooked.

I think Kate Beckinsale is just as hot as when she first starred in Underworld. I likey. XD The movie is pretty straight forward but I think it lacked the wow factor. Michael was only in the movie for a mere 2 minutes. Although they did put another vampire eye candy for my eyes to feast upon *drools*.

Hmmm...sexy eye candy indeed. XD I am hoping that the next movie in this installment won't take as long as this one. I am dying to see what happens although I don't want this movie to end. I just hope it won't be as long as the Harry Potter movies. XD

This movie I think is one of the most gruesome one so far, unless I have blocked some scary awesome-ness in the previous movies. In my opinion I really enjoyed it but I'd like to know how you feel about it, what you think about this movie and weather you like it or not. :D

IMDb ratings 7.2/10

Which vampire/werewolf movie do you like?

Welcome to the year of the Dragon


I want to wish all my friends and readers (if any) a wonderful Lunar new year or Chinese new year :). I heard a ton of fireworks being played outside but didn't see any. I guess they were too far or not high enough for me to see. DAMN I should've made my way to the temple. I am sure they were playing a ton of fireworks! Remind me to make it there by the 15th day of the new year. :D More fireworks I hope!!

As we bid farewell to the year of the rabbit (I think) we say hello to the year of the dragon. So all of the babies born from this day forward (Monday) will be dragon babies :D Awww...

The people born on the year of the Dragon is said to be brave, passionate and self-assured.

"This Chinese New Year 2012 ushers in the Water Dragon. Water exerts a calming influence on the Dragon's innate fire. Water Dragons are more open to other people's opinions than other Dragons which gives them the ability to channel their personal charisma into real leadership qualities." via

Some famous people born in the year of the Dragon are John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Matt Dillon and Al Pacino. The Dragon's lucky color is yellow.

What I love most about Chinese new year is (other than the visiting friends and food) are the lanterns! They are so pretty and here they string them across buildings. I have taken pictures of them over the years but they do not do them justice. It is hard to capture a very beautiful scenery with my oh-no-so-professional camera. I will have to try my best in the future.

So in celebration of the new year I will be visiting a friend whom I visited every year and on odd years with CLK. Since he is not around this year I will be going with the troops...old friend. :) I love my friends who I have known for years and years. I want angpow (money they usually give out in red envelops) but my friend is not married and he is not required to give them... damn. LOL 

I hope this year will bring luck to me, I was born in the year of the Rat, too bad there wasn't a year of the cat...I am somewhat rat-like in personality..LOL. I hope this year will bring us all prosperity, wealth and good health. :) Dust off your welcome mat and say hello to the Dragon.

I love this last photo. I want to do this sometime :D


Edit: After a little sleep I realize I forgot one important character during this lunar new year, Mushu! LOL I love Mushu XD

A song in my head: Ella Fitzgerald

I was blog surfing (I do this a lot) and came across this one particular blog that have a music player. I usually don't like having music blasting through my speakers but this particular blogger have some awesome music on. One was a song by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. :) It made me very happy. Although that's not the song I want to share with you. This song, I just fell in love with. It's something about the music in this era that makes me feel loved, in love and dreamy. :)

Don't you feel like you're at a restaurant having a nice romantic candle light dinner for two, lights dim and then come the dancing. That's how I feel. I am definitely putting this on my wedding song list :P haha. Enjoy ~

Movie Date: Australia

When Australia came out in 2008 I thought it was a movie about koalas and kangaroos. But I was wrong. Actually there was a scene with a mob kangaroos but...one got shot. So yeah, no kangaroos although there was a lot of cows. Cattles actually and Hugh Jackman *drools*.

I mean who doesn't love Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. :D Honestly I did not think I would like this movie, nor even want to see it. But after the little fight in the beginning and how Hugh and Nicole character met (it is pretty funny) I knew it was gonna be one of those movies. What makes it more interesting to me was the movie was set before WWII. It involves driving 2000 cattle over the crazy dry land and the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese.

Honestly I like this movie. I would watch it again just because I fell asleep in the middle of the movie but you know me. XD My sister liked it and she is pretty hard to impress. It has suspense, crazy sexy moments and some sad moments too, awesome in my book. So if you come across this movie don't change the channel (like CLK said).

Beside I think Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman's performance is awesome.

Have you seen Australia?

Little Angel

Two days before new year my aunt gave birth a very cute baby boy. Since I live quite awhile away we didn't get to see the lil bundle of joy until recently when my cousin uploaded a picture of him on her Facebook. :)

Later we found out he was still in the hospital, apparently he was born with a little hole in his heart. My aunt is still in the hospital with him because she is breastfeeding him. :) We hope he gets better soon and can come home. I hope we get to meet soon little angel. ♥♥♥

Happy Anniversary sweet pea ♥♥♥~

Hey peeps :) I hope everyone is doing well. So yesterday was our 3rd year anniversary and yet again we didn't get to celebrate is together, it really sucks to be in a LDR but they say absence makes the heart grows fonder. True? I think it really sucks. :P

So since we couldn't do anything together I decided to do a boyfriend tag which have been going around YouTube for awhile. I love watching tags especially boyfriend tag cause you get to meet/see the other half, that special someone is someone's life. :) Don't you think so?

We do not have a video cause it would be pretty hard to do and we are both too shy to be film for other people to see anyway but I did record the conversation for evidence purpose and in case our lawyer need to use it someday...kidding. Got you there didn't I? :P And I did force get permission from CLK to use his answers on my blog.

Q: Where did we meet?
H: The airport (Is that a valid answer?)

Q: Where was our first date?
H: Hmmm...this is gonna be a tough one because the entire time I thought was our first date. We went to the mall..and we took picture of that boat, when it's all lit up.

Q:What was your first impression of me?
H: My first impression of you is that I thought you were cute. First impression when we met - short but you're still cute.

Q: Do you have a tradition with your gf/bf?

Q: What was our first road trip?
H: Well...if it's with a car I would say when we went to the alligator farm.

Q: What was the first thing you noticed about me?
H: The first thing I notice is...how well we get along. You're incredibly easy to talk to considering the nervousness and everything that's going on. (Cause he's shy and I made him talk more than me when we're together!)

Q: What is my favorite restaurant?
H: Sadly I think it's McDonalds (so not true... XD)

Q: What do we argue about the most?
H: We don't argue much the closest thing we come to argue about is probably marriage and religion (we debate but not argue most of the time (: )

Q: Who wears the pants in the relationship?
H: Me (hah)

Q: If I am watching tv what am I watching?

H: You play the violin.

Q: What would I eat everyday if I could?
H: Pizza (he would have laksa...so would I).

Q: What is my eye color?
H: Brown

Q: Who is my best friend?
H: Me

Q: What is something you do that I wish you didn't?
H: Drinking (and most probably nagging. He hates it when I ignore him when I get angry.)

Q: Where am I from?
H: I don't remember the name of the state (Sarawak. He is from Wisconsin born in Waukesha.)

Q: What kind of cake would you bake me on my birthday?
H: Cheesecake (cause I go crazy over them once upon a time :P).

Actually listening to the audio again made me laugh, it's so funny :D

Happy anniversary, I ♥♥♥ you~

What's better than one kitten...two kittens!

Sorry there have been lack of blogging coming from my end. No there is no excuse or excuses I can give you only that I have been lazy and thinking where this is going. I guess I am just gonna give you photos or things to post but no real path, which I think I should get on. I can't decide what I want this blog to be about other than just random, miscellaneous things about me and my likes :). I hope people can deal with that. :P I figure I should abandoned the Project 365 (which was a total failure =___=). I shall give that a try some other year. I didn't even make it to 200. How sad was that?! Maybe do a photo of the week/compilation photos instead? That sounds pretty do-able.

So before I start blabbing on..I want to share some pictures with you. In the mean time I am going to gather information *runs away*.

This is a kitten. She/He (have not been determined yet) loves the camera, as you can see with the obvious on the box pose. So what is better than one kitten...
a cute kitten!! 

See, it likes posing in front of the camera with the 'what-did-I-do' look (and next to Rihanna). So what is better than a picture of a cute kitten?
2 cute kittens!! XD lol

Hello peekaboo!

Sorry bout that, I just had to share their cuteness. Hehehe..off to find things to blog about...

I like a YouTube video: Love this song

Talk about a very long music video :P I love this song from the first time I heard it...months ago. :) I love Eminem and his songs even though they sound angry. What song have been stuck in your head lately?

Movie Date: Sherlock Holmes 2

Last year I went to watch this movie (last year seems like so long ago..haha I saw it last week) and I don't know if I was too tired (I think I was!) or this movie was just not as good but I almost fell asleep! We did watch it around 10pm so that was a factor. I do believe that the second one was not as good as the first one...other than the hilarious and absurd fact that Holmes was trying to disguise himself as a sofa or book case. I thought that part was pretty funny.

The action was pretty good...Holmes like. The audience did laugh now and then so that was good right? :P My friend didn't complain although we didn't ride home together which we usually do and that's when we discuss weather we liked the movie or not.

IMDb ratings: 7.5/10 (must be quite good then I guess I was just too sleepy to enjoy it :P)

I did want to see this movie, We bought a zoo but I don't think they are showing it anymore :( I am a sad panda!

I love a crazy love/family story with animals! and 2 zebras. Have you watch any of the movies?
