Movie review: Talentime

Before the movie review, let's start off with my "hectic" day right after PP2's paper.

PP2 ended at 4.30pm and was followed by another PP2-like "lecture" by a lecturer who flew over from Scotland to "brief" us regarding what we should expect in Glasgow. It was rather disappointing as I felt most of the things mentioned have been covered by a pre-departure talk given by our seniors. Haha..

Nevertheless, when the "briefing" ended around 6.30pm, we were all hyped out about going out and having our hungry stomachs filled!! Hehe^^ It was a long discussion and we decided to head to Pyramid for our dinner at 8pm =)

After a yummy dinner in Zanmai Sushi we headed off to Quattro in Avenue K.
It was a nice place to take pictures like this,

and this,

but the dance floor wasn't nice at all. It was packed till the max, which means no space to dance around. It was just people standing around = ='' Thus the conclusion is, the place is over rated! Go once to take pics, and dont go again. LOL~~~~

Since the place wasn't as entertaining as we'd hoped, we headed back to vista and had a drinking night out while playing "sek chai". This is the second time around we played it, and still it never ceases to entertain. ROFL~

We played and played till the wee hours of the morning till Sinye's apartment punya apartment decided to call it a day. The three musketeers however, we in no shape to "balik" so they stayed back and in the end we chatted and chatted till it was 8am! Yes, since the birds are out chirping and the sun was out shining so brightly, we decided to go have Dim Sum in Sri Petaling. Haha....

Anyways, the day continued on with a meeting regarding IMU Ball, which was then followed by a sumptous food tasting session in Marriott!! Ngek ngek ngek~

The food was seriously good. Especially the lamb meat. Peas like lamb, so I'm biased towards the lamb!! Haha, I shall upload the pictures of the food in the Ball's blog soon =)

By the time the food tasting ended, I got back to vista at 6.30pm whereby I immediately started packing my stuff to load it ALL back home~ I had sooo many stuff that the entire car was almost filled up! And now that my stuff is back in Klang, my room is in a mess, but the cleaning will have to come later. I'm so preoccupied doing other stuff like blogging, sleeping, chatting and watching drama now. Haha~ Plus I have to prepare for my PP3 presentation~~~ *sigh*

The yesterday, after a good night's sleep, I went out to catch a local movie called Talentime (click here to go to the official website of the movie, you can have a look at the preview there as well =) OR you can also learn more about the movie from wikipedia.

It's a movie by Yasmin Ahmad, the director of the famous "sepet".
The story revolves around a school talentime show, and involves the stories of the participants. It was touching, and funny at the same time. The one thing I admire about the director is that she dares to put those issues such as how Chinese students are the "kiasu" ones, how Indians get involved in fights among one another, and other issues which I found trully related to me, a Malaysian.

It's a simple movie, nothing fancy. SO don't expect flying saucers with blazing lights nor big robots or big action scenes. It's just a movie about love and life. It was 2 hours long, so it did get draggy at some point, but overall, I think it's worth it to support the local director =) And honestly, I think that the director Yasmin Ahmad is a really nice person especially after I visited her blog. Hehe... btw, she's got a new blog here.

btw, i took this from Yasmin Ahmad's blog. Isnt this guy cute? *giggles*
LoL~ he's one of the actor in the movie who used his real name on screen. LOL~ he's called Ka Hoe, but he didnt look so cute in the movie. LOL~ If he'd been smillling throughout the movie I would have went

" cute!!!!!"

all the way throughout the movie.. haha;p

Wait, I baru perasan that I havent talked much about the movie. haha, and since i'm lazy, i'll jz extract it from wikipedia lah~

The following is a rough story given by Yasmin in her October 15, 2007 entry on her blog:

"A music teacher, who is herself a great performer is organising an inter-school talentime. Through the days of auditions, rehearsals and preparations, running up to the big day of the contest, the characters get embroiled in a world of heightened emotions - ambition, jealousy, human comedy, romance, heartbreak - all of which culminate in a day of great music and performances."

Yasmin also mentioned that the idea behind Talentime: That as humans, we have to go through a lot of pain and some measure of suffering before we can reach greater heights.

Go watch and support the movie! And one more thing,
I LOVED the music used in the movie!
And there were a few short poems which were lovely, such as

"If the moon can linger in the morning so bright, why can't the sun do the same at night?" -Melur-

Regarding the exams, I hope that I can pass so that I can sit on the plane and fly to Scotland asap~~ Whee^^

I shall update my blog more often, hopefully =)

Whee~ I got my prom dress^^
It was on discount, which made me even happier~

Exam-wise, don't worry, as long as I pass I'm gonna get through to Scotland.

I did a medical check-up for JPA, and one of the tests was the Mantoux Test to test for tuberculosis = =
I already had my bcg, and I still needed to pay rm65 for that jab = =''

And I jz found out that medical expenses aren't cheap *sigh*
I brought RM250 to the medical centre, thinking it'd be enough to cover the 4 simple tests that I did. In the end, the bill came to Rm290.45.

I was like, "how much????"

RM290.45 came the reply.


Feeling half-dumbfounded by the expensive fee, and half of embarrassment, I said
"I'm sorry, I didnt bring enough cash, could you wait a moment."

I am still fussin over my prom dress


I am still fussing over my prom dress.
Last night, I think I dreamt about prom dresses T.T

Then I bugged PohYee's boyfriend to figure out how her dress will look like. T.T
OMG~ I am like paranoid~

If i were half that paranoid about my studies as the dress, I'm sure I would be pulling my hair out and be half bald by now. *Imagines myself being bald.......scary betul*

And right before I slept off, I had to vent out my frustrations on facebook where I got comments asking me to wear nothing *sweats*

Well, if I wore nothing, the whole of IMU would think I went bananas~
And get some psychiatric student to diagnose me with some weird disorder~
Or worse still, some people will snap my birthday suit pictures and post it up the internet! And once the picture is up, people will make a big issue out of it.

For instance, Carrots told me the other day about a "drama" happening in UM: University Malaya, where the chinese girls wore some "revealing" clothes during an event, and were said to be "half naked" or separuh bogel. *sweats*

Anyways, since the main reason I am stressing over the dress is money,
Carrots said he wanna sponsor half...* nice* but i'm not gonna take it. I'm an egoistic being! wahahahaha!

Then this morning, I awoke to my mum by my bed, telling me to take some money from her to buy the dress and she left the money by my side * again*
Yes, but I feel a little bit erm...bad for taking her money.

So, if it's possible, I dont wanna use my mum's money. Still stuck with my prom dress obsession, I sat in front my laptop since the moment I woke up, till now doing things like:

- searching ebay for cheap clothes,
- reading forums on where to get nice clothes,
- I even resorted to watching online videos on how to make your own simple dress!!! *double sweats*

I am still undecided, I'm thinking that i'll alter the dress that I have now, and if THAT doesnt come out nice, I'll most likely go buy the dress~~~

Okay, back to mugging, that should be my main priority now instead of the dress...LOL~~

Watch Watchmen!!!


I was out with Carrots today^^
I think I must have been super happy to go out, because the whole week I didn't want to go out. I have this weird disorder where I feel that going out during study break is a BAD thing. In fact, if I go out longer than required during my study break, I would often feel completely stressed out.

But today wasn't one of those days, I was happy and excited! LOL~~~
Anyways, we went to Pyramid to watch WATCHMEN..

I give it 2 thumbs up!!
1. It's good. The directing was superb, if you liked 300, i'm sure you'll love watchmen jz as much as its the same director! I loved the way the director focuses on certain things during certain times, eg focusing on the the lips when one is talking etc

2. It's a long movie. It's 2 and a half hours, which makes it even more appealing than watching some 1 hour and 30 mins movie in the cinema. (that's how my brain process, value for each minute or movie, so the longer the movie is, the better! LOL~~)

3. it's darn good!

Quick, go watch it~~~~~~~~~~

side note: I am sad because I havent found my ball dress~~~ Pohyee and renly has got theirs, and somehow I think that the dress that I have been saving up to wear during the ball isnt nice enough T.T

I surveyed Pyramid and found out that the dresses cost at least rm200 T.T
I am like broke right now, I feel poor.
I crave for money right now T.T

A day at the hospital~

A day at the hospital to "clerk" a case, has been saddening.

Saddening because I found out that there's about half a million things which I do not know.

Yes. I have never been good in remembering drugs, but being reminded of that fact every time the lecturer asks us a question regarding the case, makes it even worse.

Although it was pretty fun to look at the patients and seeing how the hospital operates, but sitting down, figuring whether there's anything wrong, or potentially wrong with the case, is plain sadness.

This sadness boils down to the fact that this is the FIRST time we, Mpharmers, are sent to the hospital. *shhhh* better not let the uni knows, if not, our juniors will be sent for hospital attachments from sem 1 itself! LOL~~

Anyways, this will be part of what I will be facing in the future.
Itu ialah masa depan.
So the point is, worry later~~~~~

I shall go chill for now, and aim to pass this coming eos so that I can enjoy my short 13 months in scotland~~~~~ lalalalaa

Lately, this one song has been running in my mind.

It's a korean song, called Gee, sung by a group of girls called Girls Generation.
When I first heard it, I wasn't that into it, but after hearing it several times (while in the IMU's Ball President's car. *note: this song is repeated several times within one journey back to Klang*) I had to admit, the catchy tune got into me~~
And the next thing I knew, I was humming the song half of the time...but unfortunately for me, carrots doesnt like the song one bit. He says it's nosiy.... *sobs*

Next, I was shown the video to the song, along with all the cute dance steps and of course tall-lanky-leggy-fair-cute korean chicks~~

I was left dumb-founded wondering how those girls can be so darn tall, and leggy and cute all at the same time!

Thus, I began my daily mini-exercise regime, which consists of watching tv while playing with the hula-hoop, in hopes that my big fat thighs will reduce to the stick thin I mean leggy legs those korean chicks have.

Okay, maybe my legs aren't that fat, but it could be thinner right? like you zhuan's long sexy legs^^

So, other than having long legs in my checklist, I wanted to look cute. So I was left wondering how to achieve such "cute-ness".

I had a few BAD BAD experiences when I tried to act cute. And in those cases, ppl always tell me

"cute is NOT you"

or in other words

I am not the cute cute type of girls. *sigh*

HOWEVER, hope lighted up my day when I read this forwarded mail by Cucu a few days back where this girl was nicknamed "transformers". LOL~

Why so?As you can see, she transformed from the girl in the left to the CUTE girl on the right!

Yes, I was like OMG, is it even possible?
Well, then it showed the step by step make up techniques required to turn someone un-cute, to someone cute. *peas ponders*

So, technically speaking, if THAT girl can become so cute,
Why not me??? hahaha........

I have this old picture of mine taken way back in sem 1, which is like 2 years ago!!!

Cute or not? LOL~~~~

Yes, that girl, is me.
But I know I don't look like that all the time.
I still remember what Ray, my batch mate said when he saw that picture,

"HUH, that's you???"

OMG, I got a feeling that I can be the next transformer!!!
Peas Power~~~~ *Peas transforms with magical music at the back*

Of tagging~

Lately there's a craze on Facebook where ppl start tagging other people.
And thankfully I was remembered, and tagged,
But unfortunately for all the wrong reasons.

For instance, Brendan tagged me twice for the same thing.....

I am now the sleeping queen in Brendan's list. *cheers????*
Well, actually I only sleep in class, or more specifically, I get sleepy when I start studying.
Which also explains why I am not able to study much for this past few days. I am hoping that I will be able to cover all the subjects I need to cover by my exams *prays hard*

Next up, sweet Wen Chin tagged me as....

Bao li ren... or the Violent One~~~~

Well, I may not be the sweetest person alive on earth, but I don't think I'm violent?

Or am I?

Here's a picture of little Peas which PohYee loves....
Then I did a little kung-fu shot for the convocation magazine......

So, am I violent????

You better tell me that I'm not. IF you do, you know I'm gonna kick ur ass~~~ LOL~~~~
