I Survived

Image
Hey peeps. How's your holidays so far? Enjoyed Christmas yesterday? I'm really clumsy and lack of bodily intelligence so in the last one week I hurt myself quite a number of times and also partly because all the bad things seems to happen at the same time.

I stepped on a piece of glass (don't know how did that happened since there was no broken materials recently) while I was walking up my own stairs at home. That's like one day before I went to Bangkok. Jeez. Thankfully, it was nothing serious but I spent RM100 for some medication and get a jab. Cis.

In Bangkok, I clumsily hit the wooden door and my toe was bleeding and next thing I know, I've got a huge blue-black but it's okay now. Thankfully again, (I think I got high pain tolerance or what?) it didn't affect my walking :P And I think I had an allergy but I don't know to what while I was in Bangkok and I'm still having this rash which won't go away :( I hope it goes away soon because it'…

Back from BKK

I just came back from Cotton Candy Land Bangkok. Done loads of shopping! :D
Update soon :) It's Christmas season, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!




Review: Frozen (Disney Animated Film 2013)

Image
Watched Frozen on Sunday night with family. I haven't been watching a lot of animated films in the last few years. Did not watch Brave, Wreck it Ralph, Rise of the Guardians etc etc etc even though I heard some of it were really good in terms of storyline and great visuals. In fact, the only new animated film I've watched this year is probably..Despicable Me 2.. Oops.

(the following paragraphs may contain spoilers, *cough)
I grew up with Disney - watched a lot of Disney animated films and of course, watched all of its Disney Princess franchise animated films except Princess Merida from Brave. Prior to this, I did not know that Frozen was about princesses until people started to talk about it. In fact I only remembered the trailer/teaser which shows only Olaf and Sven, so I thought it was a story about animals. Oops. So in the recent weeks, I got know that Frozen was based loosely on the story of Snow Queen (she's evil by the way and Elsa's good). As of now, Elsa the S…

Video of the Week: Youtube Rewind - What Does 2013 Say?

When I was watching this video I was wondering, hey why the people behind Youtube so good in mashing up songs wun?.. Until I realised they credited the song mash up to DJ Earworm. Cheh :P
Spot your favourite youtube artist? I saw Ryan and Chester! :D



Homemade: Beef Patty-Steak With Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Broccoli, Cherry Tomatoes, Potato Wedges and Lettuce

Image
That's one long blog title. LOL. But anyway, here's the picture of the beef patty-steak with stuffed portobello mushrooms, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, potato wedge and lettuce that my mum made for dinner some time ago.

I love my mum :D Don't you think she's awesome? :D


Review: The Hobbit 2: The Desolation of Smaug

Image
All thanks to Cinema Online, I got to watch The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug before it was released in the cinemas. I watched in IMAX 3D summore! And it was my first. In all honesty, I thought the 3D effect was really really good (so good that the words were floating yo!) except that I find that some scenes seem to be quite blurry and the 3D spectacles was not very comfy.. not to mention I get dizzy when the camera pans and my seating was not very good because I came late to collect the tickets. Adui. And there's no subtitles, so it's a sorry case for non-English viewers. BUT, overall it was a good experience and I love it yo. And did you notice how cool were the movie tickets?!



Peter Jackson working his magic

If you think that the first Hobbit is disappointing because of the lack of adventure and action, you won't be disappointed this time. Peter Jackson once again injects his magic into the film and introduces some new and old characters (like..LEGOLAS :D) along the w…

Food: La Boca Latino Bar @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Image
So, my family and I went to La Boca last month. La Boca serves Latin American cuisines. This restaurant was embracing technology as patrons can see that music is played from an iPhone. It was my first time there but I got to know that sometimes there are live performances.


Know what you are eating!


Three shots of the menu. I must love the menu, a lot. I like the concept that it was like a newspaper and when I see other people reading the menu it really looked like they were reading a newspaper. -_- Don't know why, I find that really amusing.


Pretty chairs!


Most of the patrons that night were well..non-Malaysians.


Fajitas




Pizza de Frutos del Mar aka Pizza with tomato, mozzarella, prawns, calamari and salmon


Pizza Rellena aka Stuffed and folded Argentinean pizza with mozzarella, turkey ham, chorizo, kalamata olives and fresh basil leaf.
This pizza is the bomb! My favourite for the night


Pastel de Chocio aka A Chilean version of the Shepherd's Pie



Overall, dinner was very enjoyable. It…

Lost, Not Found

I wanted to make more food blogpost but I have no pictures to show at the moment because I do most of my photo editing/converting on my computer and now it's throwing a fit - restarting so frequently I can't even see it finish loading Windows before it restarts again.

So, I thought why not make a rambling post?

:D It's been awhile isn't it.

Life is so hectic and so many things happened that I can't even remember what I have been doing for the last few months. So let's just share one or two of the most recent happenings that I remember while I'm blogging here.

Friends on Facebook or on Twitter will know that I lost my wallet last week. I don't know how it happened - seriously, don't ask me. The only thing I knew was I made the wrong choice at the wrong time. While friends were settling down at San Francisco Coffee outlet in The Sphere after dinner, I went to check my CIMB account balance with a friend. And that was the last time I remember seeing my …

Video of the Week: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (LIVE World Premiere)

In celebration of one of the most anticipated movies in 2013.. 1 hour and 18 minutes of awesomeness. It's super long LOL but it's cool man. Can't wait for the premiere screening :P

Food: Groupon Deal - S'Mores Restaurant @ The Sphere, Bangsar South [Non-halal]

Image
A few weeks ago, Groupon had this deal for S'Mores Restaurant. RM130 for 1 pork platter which includes German chorizo (aka pork sausages), English roast pork, pork ribs, rosemary potato salad and 4 mugs of Tiger beer. A meal that boasts of feeding up to 8 person. We came in 10 so we ordered one extra plate of pork.
It was my first time at The Sphere, Bangsar South and S'Mores was easily located from the outdoor car park.



Yummy!


Extra dish: Pork with honey mustard sauce. Super love the taste!


As you can see, the 'mug' of beer is really a glass of Tiger beer. Hahaha. And the two sauces that comes with the pork platter - apple sauce and BBQ. The apple sauce was nice.


We swapped three of our beer with juices. 
Overall, the food was really nice - no complains at all. The ribs was a delight.
We took some time to order because of some communication problems. I really don't mind restaurants hiring foreign workers but I mind when they are not able to communicate with customer…

8 SECONDS OF FAME: I'M ON TV!

I was on TV. Not exactly me but my name with my picture was there. I got my eight seconds of fame on national news thanks to my comment of asking Livescapes if there was refund for complimentary tickets. That's what you get for being the top commenter on Facebook.

Does that make me a national cheapskate now? *hides in a corner*

Christmas Wishlist v2013

Image
December started with rainy days. Monday was crazy as it rained 12 hours nonstop, I think it was my first in 20 years!

Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. So it's only natural to have a Christmas wishlist now. Just to keep the ball rolling and to leave hints to people who might want to buy me gifts, right? Heh.



Clockwise from top right: 1. Eco 2.0 Vail Tortoise Red from GlassesOnline 2. Ray-Ban RX5280 F 2012/53 from GlassesOnline 3. Zeagoo Women's Geometric Knitted Sweater Loose Pullover Outwear from Amazon 4. AEO Brocade Tassel Backpack from AEO 5.  Keds Taylor Swift Champion Oxford Shoes - Women from Keds 6. ASOS High Waisted Shorts in Aztec Embroidery from ASOS 7. Vans Atwood Low Sneaker - Womens from DSW

I've been wanting to get a sneakers for a long time now but haven't found time to go and buy one. Also, I haven't got myself a pair of shades since 2008. That's like almost 6 years ago. 
The geek in me would really want more gadgets in my hands …

Video of the Week: Jimmy Fallon, Rashida Jones & Carrie Underwood Parody (Thanksgiving Medley)

LOL. Carrie Underwood's parody of Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball too jiwang already. HAHAHAHAH.
Lyrics (from the video description):
GET LUCKY

We ate too much
Filled our plates now we're stuffed
But we can't give up
Until allthe food's gone

I feel like I weigh a ton
My pants are coming undone
Turn on that microwave, son
We're up all night to eat turkey
We're up all night to eat turkey
We're up all night to eat turkey

ROAR

I ate the thigh of the turkey
The gravy
Everything you made me

Now I'm on the sofa
And you're gonna hear me snore
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(SNORES)
You're gonna hear me snoooore

ROYALS

And we get to spin dreid
