Movie: Transformers

with 2 comments

At last, I got to go to the cinema to watch movies (again!) It has been 3 1/2 years since I last stepped into the cinema area. My last show ? The Last Samurai, starring Tom Cruise.

Anyway, coming back to the cinema, I went to watch Transformers with my hubby. The main reason of going to the cinema is because of his birthday (and also because I’ve not been in for so long… but then don’t need to let him know that).  We went to Midvalley GSC (which is also one of my firsts… *sigh*)

Review of the movie ? For me, it was quite interesting and nice to watch. Very entertaining and at times funny too. In a way, the show is a bit of a mix… comedy-cum-action, which is quite of a nice combination. And which robot I like ? Obviously the Autobots… and especially Bumblebee! Just have a soft spot for him 🙂

Anyone whom have yet to watch the movie (except for moi previously), it is very recommended to watch! My take ? A+

Touch of the heart

Posted about my cousin brother’s wedding here. While I was composing the post yesterday, the line wasn’t that good… thus totally forgot about the wedding gift we got from the dinner.

I was mumbling about getting a new camera few months back, as I find the old one kinda bulky. I’m not those whom uses all the functions of the camera (but then again, the camera must look good also lar)… thus was thinking of getting one that is slim and nicer looking than the ugly not-so-thin one that we have.

We went to the Maybank Treats fair in Midvalley, intending to look for HK packages and maybe also the Floor Depot promotion. Lil’ did I imagine that I will end up buying my camera (muah haha). Didn’t really go into all the booths, as we had a pram and a cranky and hungry baby with us. After lunch, we went back to the fair again, as hubby wanted to get the pressure jet and I mentioned about the sony cybershot camera. So back we went, and found ourselves in front of the Sony booth. Asked around for the promotions, differences between the cameras displayed, played around with a few of them, and viola! Decided myself on the Sony Cybershot DSC-T20 Silver colour.

Why I chose that ? Hehe… Ain’t it slim & stylish ? That’s the answer! Got the camera with a bunch of other goodies – mini tripod, 1GB memory stick, leather case and vouchers. All these costs me RM 13++.

How cruel can parents be ?

leave a comment »

Death for anybody is a sad thing, what more it happens to small kids and worst of all, the murderer is either the parents / near relatives.

Whenever I read about kids dying, be it being killed by someone or happened in an accident, I will think of my own 2 kids. Cannot imagine how can parents / relatives be so cruel to even kill their own flesh and blood with their own hands. How can even have the heart to do it ? It’s like they have no sense in them… no brain, no heart, not a human being.

Even if they don’t want their kids, there are other ways to go about it… either giving to their own parents (the kid’s grandparents) or even to welfare. There are so many child-less couples who wouldn’t mind adopting them as their own.

Last time, when my cousin was going through a rough period in her marriage, I was scared that she might give away her own child. I was thinking that if that happens, I’d rather take in the kid and take care of her myself. I even told Pie to love and sayang her cousin, coz I am really scared that it will happen to my niece. Luckily, things came through and my cousin and her hubby is getting along much better now.

* Updated *
So how cruel can parents be ? On the other hand, just thought about it this morning, I can understand what parents (in particular mothers) are going through. Being a mother myself, I am sometimes frustrated with my kids – my 3 year old is staying with my mum, and practically every week I get complains from my sister on how naughty she is. Whereas for my 7 months old girl, she is very active and doesn’t want to be let down, constantly need attention from everyone. In addition to that, whenever she is put down (even for a while), she can go crying loudly, until you carry her into your arms again. I do scold and sometimes scream at the elder one (cannot afford to do it at the younger one coz she’s still a baby), but then again, no dark thoughts would come across the mind. Instead, maybe some rest days is needed to rest your body, mind and soul ?

Anyway, no one knows what the mother is thinking, so be it. Hopefully no more of such news come out anymore…

What would you be doing on 7th July’ 2007 at 7:07:07 ?

I know what I’ll be doing. I’ll be just about to wake up from my dreamland, getting ready to go back to my office, to attend a one-day training. This training is totally different from what I usually attend for… it’s a financial training meant for non-finance people (does it means that the stuff thought will be very de basic that non-finance people will be able to understand ?)

Will this help in my daily work ? Well, my manager seems to think so, since we are (or had) ventured into areas like banking and government accounting. I’ll have to see tomorrow…

Anyway, have fun and enjoy the tomorrow… for some people, it’ll be a special day…
