Alice in Wonderland (Update)

Just came back from Alice in Wonderland screening at Cineleisure. Well, I am quite disappointed actually, there's not so much 3D to be seen as I expected. And...despite the fact of Johnny Depp is the main reason I went and watch this movie, I found that this story is quite boring after all. But luckily the boys sit still. Just sometimes they didn't bother to wear the 3D glasses, maybe they felt uncomfortable.

All in all, I don't recommend for 3D viewing, you might as well watch the normal screening for Alice in Wonderland.

Journey continues ...

After checked-out from Kukup Golf Resort, we went to take a look at the infamous Tanjung Piai Resort. The place is quite interesting, with fishing spot and chalet for RM150 per night. I think it's affordable. The ambience is very nice. I can see some small swordfish under the bridge, but we didn't plan to stay there. So, we continued our journey to JB, which was very packed that day. So we decided to head back to Melaka and then PD.

Tanjung Piai Resort

Had our lunch at Melaka near Pengkalan Balak beach. We decided to check in at Emperor Hotel.

After breakfast the next morning (Monday, I took an AL), packed and check-out. We went straight to PD still using the back/old road. We reached PD around 3 pm. Then went straight back to Sungai Buloh, but before that we stopped by at Tesco to buy some groceries since my sister's family and mum will be coming over this weekend. Reached home around 10 pm, cooked for dinner. I just cooked fish head curry and chicken rendang.

Sungai Buloh > PD > Melaka > Johor = Exhausted

I took my Saturday off last week. En Koji planned to go to Pontian, not for leisure obviously, but on a special mission which yet to be revealed in here. So we started our late morning journey to Kampung Melayu Subang to have his favourite nasi lemak but unfortunately the restaurant is closed, so we just went to a nearby mamak restaurant. The maggi goreng that I had tasted delicious.

Then we headed to PD first, using 'jalan lama', meaning we used the Morib/Bagan Lalang sideways. We always love the sceneries throughout our journeys, which explains why En Koji always used the old road when we go back to Taiping.

Back to PD. We just stopped by and continued our journey to Melaka. We had our dinner there, which was surprisingly cheap. Can't believe it though. It was raining all the way. We stopped a various locations, to name a few, Muar, Rengit and so on. At last, we reached Pontian around 9 p.m. and desperately try to find a nice but affordable hotel to spend the night. Unfortunately, all the hotels in town were full. But somebody told us, there's a resort in Kukup. And so we went there, and alhamdullillah we got a room (which they called as villa, because of its individual rooms). The place is quite 'abandoned-looking' at night. The room was okay but they didn't provide the didn't provide the breakfast.

Trouble is a Friend by Lenka

Trouble Is A Friend lyrics
Songwriters: Kripac, Lenka; Salter, Thomas;

Trouble he will find you no matter where you go, oh oh
No matter if you're fast, no matter if you're slow, oh oh
The eye of the storm or the cry in the mourn, oh oh
You're fine for a while but you start to lose control

He's there in the dark, he's there in my heart
He waits in the wings, he's gotta play a part
Trouble is a friend, yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh!

Trouble is a friend but trouble is a foe, oh oh
And no matter what I feed him he always seems to grow, oh oh
He sees what I see and he knows what I know, oh oh
So don't forget as you ease on down the road

He's there in the dark, he's there in my heart
He waits in the wings, he's gotta play a part
Trouble is a friend, yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh

So don't be alarmed if he takes you by the arm
I won't let him win, but I'm a sucker for his charm
Trouble is a friend, yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh!

Oh how I hate the way he makes me feel
And how I try to make him leave, I try
Oh oh, I try!

He's there in the dark, he's there in my heart
He waits in the wings, he's gotta play a part
Trouble is a friend, yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh

So don't be alarmed if he takes you by the arm
I won't let him win, but I'm a sucker for his charm
Trouble is a friend, yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh!
Ooo, oh ooo, ooo ahh

Alice in Wonderland

*Image by Google

I was so looking forward to watch Alice in Wonderland...but so sad that most of the cinemas were fully booked until next week.

Mid Valley will have its launching tomorrow. How I admired those mushrooms that they decorated at the Centre Court. They were so...fairy tale. I will upload some of the pictures with the men behind the production team (which include En Koji of coz).

Oh Johnny Depp (the main reason I wanna watch this movie...)


I have never been in cinemas for God knows how long, I think since Haqimie was just a baby in his few months old. The last movie I ever watched in the cinema was Harry Potter, I can't remember which one though.

Last month, we strolled in Tropicana City Mall for the first time when En Koji suddenly bought tickets to watch Avatar. Since they don't have 3D there, we just watched the normal ones. At first, I was kinda freak out when I think that we have the boys with us that time. I was afraid one of them, or maybe both of them do something that will make me wanna go out from the movie before it was finished.

But alhamdullillah, to my surprise, the boys were quite behaved. It was their first time in a movie, so maybe they were also excited, especially Qayyum who sit very still till the end. I was so glad... Haqimie as usual walk here and there, but still manageable. So En Koji and me thinking to bring them again to a movie some day but maybe we have to choose a story that will interest them enough to sit still.

As for Avatar, I only enjoyed the sceneries but not the idea of the story...

Currently reading Fallen by Lauren Kate.

I guess my genre of books preference mostly dark horror romance. I can't tell what the story is about ... yet, coz I only flipped only a few pages ... but I think this story is quite interesting, I hope so coz I don't wanna feel wasted buying this book at RM50++. But I do love the cover.

Updated 16/3/2010

Well, I already finished the whole book on Monday. Apparently, there will be a follow-up title TORMENT in this series.

But I don't think I wanna get that title. I don't know why, but I found this book is quite boring coz there's lotsa words (I mean more essay-type words compared to dialogues). All in all, this book is all about dark dreams, angels, demons, and so on... so the mortal girl fell in love with an angel, but of course there will be demons who hate that situation. So there's a battle to fight for the life of this girl, Luce. To me ok la, but not interesting enough to make me eager to flip page by page.

Twilight Saga

I finished the whole four books last month. I don't really know where this obsession came from, for all I know when I first watched the Twilight movie, I don't like it. I don't know why though, maybe what I expected then was not fulfilled when I watch the movie itself. I was expecting something more vampiric but what I get was some kind of not really something to be scared of. But then, few months after the Twilight movie was out, I bought the first book of the series, which carries the very same title.

Then the obsession began. I found that the novel is much more interesting than the movie. But of course since I watched the movie first, so I imagined Edward Cullen as Rob Pattinson throughout my reading. I cannot imagined somebody else though. But, seriously, the novel is really something, I just can't wait to buy New Moon next.

After only a couple of days after I finished Twilight, I bought New Moon. Then soon after I finished it, I bought Eclipse and Breaking Dawn in one shot.

Overall I really satisfied with the novels more than the movies.

Hmmm, after almost 3 months of waiting, finally TM answered my wish after my 2nd attempt to install streamyx in my house looks like going to fail...again...

Actually I already fed-up and wanted to return that damn house phone back to TM. I was so frustrated, but when I already gave up, the technician called me. Ok...but the problem is my house phone got some wiring problem. I already told Mr Koji to fix the wiring, but he was busy with some other I called the TM vendor who did the wiring earlier and he charged me RM120...Since I still want to streamyx at home, so just closed my eyes and paid.

Ok...I think am going to throw the nuffnang thingy since I already changed my mind that I don't want to make this blog so public. I think am going to make it more like a daily if there are people who read my blog previously found this blog is nothing but boring stuffs, am so sorry...

I'm also considering not to put so much pixies in here, so I guess my blog will be kinda wordy after maybe some of u people might get bored...

anw, stop mumbling for now, am going to facebooking first yea...
