21 & Above

Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, Writers of The Hangover again came up with a young adult comedy in year 2013. I love hangovers but not the second one because the first is always the best!

Nonetheless, they brought up the not so new type of movie, I mean 21 & over is pretty similar to other kind of young adult movies. It reminds me a lot of Project X but less brutality. 

21 & above starring Justin Chon, You may remember him from the famous Twilight and he was the model for Michelle Phan's Midnight Kiss advertisement for Lancome. 

Here's the Synopsis if you are curious to why I'd love this movie ;)

"Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy."


And here's a short preview to what you will get if you watch 21 & over next year in march! Enjoy!


Best movie year 2012

 Life of Pi is by far the greatest movie in year 2012
I have to admit that I did not expect so much of the movie
Before I went to the theatre to watch yesterday, I had myself googled for the rating 
It was given an 8.4 on IMDB
I know sometimes IMDB gives an over-rated rating so I wasn't expecting a crazy amazing movie

I realized after watching the movie that It would have been better to read the book first!
I was not too tempted to read the book when I first saw it in Kinokuniya

It is tad sad and not just adventurous life of Pi
With such a beautiful graphics, I wish I was there witnessing it myself!
It likes living in a fantasy world with magnificent sea creatures and other animal kingdom

In my honest opinion, I've never enjoyed a movie as much as I did with Life of Pi. To end your year 2012, for heaven sake what Life of Pi before you starts your 2013!

Here I included the movie trailer and I hope you'd enjoy the movie as much as I do
Enjoy!


1973 - The Exorcist


The Exorcist was one of the scariest horror movie in the 1973. I have an over of 1973 page view so far and I decided to find out a topic to write about it. 


If you have not seen the exorcist and a horror lover, it is a MUST movie to watch. I guarantee you'd have your hair stands on end! Some people still thought it is one of the scariest movie ever made. I agreed and there are not many good horror movies these days. 

Come to think of it, I might also re-watch this by myself today. 

What do you think about The Exorcist 1973? Do you like the old version or the new version 2004?

Let your skin glow with Konjac


Today I got myself a Konjac Sponge at Smoochiezz Event (if you followed me and read my first post, you'd know what I'm talking about). I was a curious cat when it comes to beauty product that benefits me. I mean, which girls doesn't want to know about beauty? Don't be silly ;).

Dexter at it's Best!


I started off watching Dexter this year and I had a hard time finishing the episodes. A friend of mine introduced me to dexter and told me how good and that I have to catch it. 

Quality Control Please?


Ok, I love wearing tang top and I have maybe a dozen of them. Forever 21 provides many style and colors in a very affordable price. I decided to get a few more since a few of the one I owned were damaged. I remembered getting one at Straditarius in Jakarta and I didn't check properly, the bottom of my white tank top has a hole :'(. It was depressing to purchase something when you did not check properly.


LESSON LEARNT!!!

My last visit to Penang (Malaysia), I visited Forever 21 and got myself 2 tank top. As you can see from the picture displayed, the strap that was supposed to be attached actually came off! FYI, It is brand new and of course I wasn't too happy about it. I get that it's not an expensive but that doesn't mean I should be OK with the outcome of a 15 bucks top. 

H&M has a fairly good affordable tops with plenty of colors and styles to choose. I still shop at Forever 21 regardless of the handwork-error. Just hoping that they will improve better in sewing them tops! 

(I do not promote Forever21 and H&M for my benefit and I do not have any relations whatsoever)

Is He For Real?

Another victim or it's just another fairy tale that goes either awfully wrong or a happy ending? The famous Hongkong actor, Edison Chen are famous for his sex scandal tapes with various famous female celebrity in HK. None other than Cecelia cheung, Bobo chan, Gillian chung and many more. Jeopardizing many celebs life, Edison flee himself to many country BUT HK. 

Another Celeb has a Sex Tape Scandal!


Isn't it familiar with all other celebrities in America that they have sex tape? None other than the famous Paris hilton and Kim Kardashian, Here comes Emma Stone

Sweetness Over-Dose!


I'm a sweet tooth woman who loves getting down for chocolates. Once I had a sweetness over-dose at Max Brenner and I was very sick I couldn't walk home. Sweet over-dose did not stopped me from visiting Max Brenner and have their chocolate galore again. 


ANTM College Edition Winner is...?

What do you think about Laura being the first winner of ANTM College Edition? I used to like Laura when her biggest competitor (Leila) was eliminated. I thought she's beautiful with her blonde hair-do. But I still am clueless to why Laura is the ANTM College Edition 2012. It is beyond unfair!

Taiwanese Dessert in Malaysia!

Dessert is everyone's favorite dish of the day. Without desserts, your meal would be incomplete. What do you know about Taiwanese desserts? 

Dessert comes in 2 types. Hot and Cold! European and American dessert comes in 2 types as well but the difference between Asian is that we love chewy texture and not too sweet while the Euro and US are the opposite. 

Meet Fresh serves a delicious desserts. The squares are Taro, Grass Jelly and Chewy Pearl (made out of flour). It comes in Hot and Cold! It was my first time experiencing meet fresh and I must say, it was a good one. They are located at 
 Paragon and Gurney Plaza (next to each other). 

My favorite is Cold/Ice desserts! What about yours?

(I do not promote Meet Fresh  for my benefit and I do not have any relations whatsoever with Meet Fresh)

Malaysia Delicacy

One of Penang delicacy is the famous flat rice noodle called "Char Kway Teow". It is stir fried commonly with dark soya sauce, chilli, prawn, bean sprouts, eggs and other stuff.

Bear in mind that char kway teow is very heavy and oily which simplify as unhealthy food but if you had the chance to visit penang, spare a time to try. 

Gelish Manicure & Classic Pedicure

I had so much time to kill today after lunch and My sister and I decided to go for a good pampering time. Well pamper doesn't mean spa or anything like that ;). We went for a good nails treatment! 

It has been quite sometime I hadn't had my nails done especially manicure because I had a bad cuticles that was over-worked when I studied in school as a beauty therapist. I had it done for a year everyday in school so you can imagine how bad it does to my nails :(. 

 The nail shop called Devilish Nail Salon. It is a cozy and serene place to do nails comes in 2 comfort chairs and 2 tables for manicure. The nail therapists are very friendly and fun to talk to! As far as I know, that's the most important service anywhere. Lucky us, we didn't have to wait for our turn and it took us at least 2 hours and 30 mins to get everything done. My classic pedicure wasn't as brilliant as my gelish manicure. But overall, I love the place and service. If you ever thought of doing your nails, do visit Devilish (they will soon rename it til further notice). They are having a promotion til end of this year, RM500 for 10 sessions of classic mani and pedi. So girls and boys, need a good pamper for your nails? Give them a call at +60122683158 or email them at devilishnail@yahoo.com for further information on prices.

Affordable Shoes!

Yesterday, My sister and I went for a mini shopping in Penang. Instead of clothes shopping, I went for Shoe-shopping. One affordable shoe brand called "Vincci" made in Malaysia. Vincci is now having a 20% off on the second pair. I spent Normal price RM160 (RM79.90 each) and after discount I paid only RM142+. Not much but it's nice. 

I love my new pairs. It wasn't easy to find a perfect unique shoes until I found this flat shoes with nice design and the price was alright. I don't see many out there so I decided to get it ;). It comes in 2 color but the other one (for my size) was out of stock so I had to get the black one instead. 

The wedge came in as the new arrival. I didn't see it as I was too busy trying on other wedges and coincidentally, I saw a lady holding it and thought it might be nice on me. Voila... with 3 color layers! It comes in 3 shades, black, beige and I forgot the other color. Check out Vincci if you are ever in Malaysia!

Say NO to Shark Finning!

Did you know that killing sharks for their fins are cruel and inhumanity? Did you know that as soon as they cut off the fins, they tossed them back to the sea and let them suffer through the deep cold sea while they are still alive? Did you know that they couldn't swim anymore and that they would be starved to death? Did you know it happens every thousand times in everyday? 

How could anybody do such a thing to the poor living creature? They attacked! YEAH! Human attacks too but you don't see them being killed for no reason. 

Sharks are cut due to their quality of the fins to make soup and there's not just FIN that they are after but their skin, teeth and jaws. To make leather goods, jewelry, souvenirs and many more.

Sharks are being depleted faster than they can reproduce and it threatens the stability of marine ecosystems around the world. For those who cares for the lives of these poor creature, raise your voice and share them with your friends and family. Check out Kubu Marine Park on Facebook. It is a non-profit organization! Like and Share ;). 

I hope shark finning will soon be prohibited and banned world wide! I recently watched a video on youtube and that it shows in New Zealand, Shark finning are legal! Let's hope for sharks survival again...

Like it or NOT?!

OH NO!!! What happened to my favorite south African actress Charlize Theron? What happened to her hair? She has been one of my favorite actress of all time in the movie North Country, Devil's Advocate and not to forget, the most memorable movie "Monster" with Christina Ricci. 

To see my favorite actress with a bizarre hair cut gives me the creep. I mean if it was a nice hair cut that looks good on her, why not? but almost shaved leaving only at least 2cm ain't cool at all. Furthermore, its dark color... Charlize is well known for her blonde beauty. I personally dislike the new change for her new movie "Mad Max: Fury Road". Because of her enthusiastic attitude, that's why she has always been a great actress with great role in the movies. That reminds me of her terribly wrong-look in the movie Monster. 

Oh well, I guess we will have to WAIT extremely long for her hair to grow back to the way it was before. 

What do you think about her new dark hair-cut?

Ideas for Christmas

What's old and new this year? Christmas is around the corner! Have you prepared gifts for your love ones? I may also be one of the bunch who hasn't prepared anything yet. How unlucky of me. I'm a lady with very little things but bigger in mind :D.

Aniston and Theroux

Brad and Jennifer used to be the greatest couple until Angelina came into his life and ruined everything. Nobody wants to be a home wrecker because you'd be known as the B**** who stole my husband. 

On the brighter side, Jennifer is now living her beautiful life with her charming new beau. They have been dating for more than a year and he popped the question. She said "YES"!

Justin Theroux, you may have remembered him from Charlie's Angels : Full Throttle as the bad boy named "Seamus O'Grady". He's an actor, writer and director. I'm sure Jennifer and Justin will make a great couple!

On the other hand, it was rumored that Justin invited Brad to their wedding which means Angelina too will be there. According to the news, Justin likes Brad so he has no issue to invite him besides, he knew Jennifer talks occasionally with Brad. Aw... don't we just love Justin for being so understanding and sweet ;).

I can't wait to see Jennifer's wedding dress. Which designer is going to design her dress? And what shoes is she going to wear???

Perhaps One Private Jet?

Sometimes it is hard to be a celebrity. Especially if they are an icon! Recently, David Beckham was pretty mad when he took a flight with British Airways came a big fan and apparently, she's an air hostess. 

While Beck was sleeping, she took a picture of Becks and it got him awake because of the flash from her camera. Therefore, Becks was pretty mad about that! It's really tough for celebrity as hot as Becks to have his privacy even when he's asleep. Becks should have own a jet for himself sponsored by British Airways. I mean since "he has a good relations with BA" why not owning one private jet? 

Well Becks, why don't you own one like every other celebrities? ;)

BREAKING-UP for real, NOT!!!

I know that I'm supposed to be having a lot of fun in Penang but the heck! I love to look out for the gossips, love affairs, politics and YOU NAME IT! 

Justin and Selena

I couldn't help but to check out what's up with Bieber and Gomez. I'm not a big fan of the duo so to Bieb's and Gomz's lover, I don't mean to B**** about them but dang it! They are 20 and 18 FFS! I think fame gets them crazeee!! I remembered when I was their age, we had proper fun like normal teenagers. But what I see in the duo, they are like an adult having a nice dinner in fancy restaurant, spending like adult celebrities yada yada... 

After a fight, Bieb's followed her home and she refused to let him in. Gomez, if you had enough of biebs, get a freaking restraining order. 

So, question is... when are they breaking up for real? I've seen a lot of negative news about them and it has been like weeks and they are still trying to patch things up. Bieb's, you are a pretty boy and Gomez, you are a pretty girl. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Why stick to each other for the sake of Paparazzi? Go make some real music and stop all the drama PLEASE!!!

Flying over the Rainbow

To be back in Penang (Malaysia) is like  going back to the past. I used to live my life in Penang for almost 10 years, practically grew up here for that long. What's great about this little island is not the beach but the food. And when I say "Food"I mean food that doesn't cost you a bomb! If you haven't been to Penang before, visit places like the hawker center. Signature food in Penang are Char Koay Teow, Hok kien Mie, Lok-Lok and many more.

I'll be spending 5 days here in Penang and I'll check out what's good and what's new! So stay tune!!! 
(On my way to Penang, I spotted a beautiful quarter rainbow in the sky - So beautiful!)

The Hype about Dance and Music

Everybody's talking about dance music festival. Greatest DJs are spinning by the beach in Sentosa, Singapore. To me, it's more celebrating the end of year 2012. People party hard and they get sick the day after. 

I remembered my zoukout night 2 years ago and it was MASSIVE! There were David Guetta (people's favorite french DJ), Tiesto (famous dutch DJ and record producer) and Afrojack (a 25 years old dutch DJ and producer). It was also the time of the year that attracted 30,000 partygoers in year 2010 zoukout. Who wouldn't want to watch Guetta in action?

This year line-ups are Above and Beyond (apparently they were spinning before in year 2008), Major Lazer, Calvin Harris (feel so close), Kaskade (I remember with deadmau5), Paul Van Dyke (I'm excited to see PVD) and many more great foreign DJs and Local DJs. 
I'm looking forward to this event and I hope I wont be as exhausted as before. Believe it or not, I was sick for a week after zoukout 2010. Weak? I know! So, keep yourself hydrated at all time! Let's hope this year zoukout will be a memorable one. Get your early bird ticket now at SISTIC and enjoy 10% discount with citibank!

Are you ready for the greatest dance music festival?

Olala, Nocturnal Emission...

How much do you know about Nocturnal Emission?  The word Nocturnal basically means "at night" and Emission is "to release". If you get the idea what I'm going to write, you are a quick one. Yes Yes, I'm talking about those days when we wet our underwear and thought it could be you peeing on the bed but apparently not. Some people usually call it liquid dream or better yet, wet dream.

The Pros and Cons of Walking

I'm not much of an "Exercise" individual. I don't go to the gym tho I love yoga. The idea of paying hundreds and thousands for classes giving me doubts to even be a member or either one of them. I used to join classes and fitness centre. Just in my opinion and experiences, fitness centre gives expensive package to those who doesn't know how to negotiate and it was a darn bad day for them when I joined (it didn't happen in Singapore). They tried to sell me crazy package but with my sleek move, I did some research before I went to sign up. I got what I wanted and he was surprised that I know so much. Come to think of it, I'd stick to "Walking". 

Walking in Singapore is GOOD! You can walk during the day and night. I always thought to myself and often tell my friends that walking is good for you and your health. But I doubt anyone would buy that because they'd rather take taxi to go home instead of walking (after a long day of shopping). Bear in mind that when I say walk, it means walk with flats (something comfortable) and not heels!

Basically, you can't really lose weight with walking method. But base on my research, it might boost you up a little! A little is better than nothing. So here we go!

The New Drugs!


Are there such thing as Female Viagra? Recent hype cracked open and is now in clinical trials in Australia, US and Canada. So, what's interesting? Female viagra aka testosterone treatment called "Tefina" helps to enhance blood flow to the genitals. Tefina forms in gel droplets and absorbed into the body through the nose. It does not just help to enchance blood flow but also increase in sexual desire, increase arousal and ability to reach orgasm. Interesting yea?


Who would have thought of Female Viagra? Women are as stressful as men but why took so long for researcher to find a way to cure that problem for women? "Men use sex to de-stress and women need to be de-stressed to have sex". 

If Tefina were to launch in Asia, Would you give it a try? (bear in mind it isn't just for sexual dysfunction)

What Human Would Consider DOING!!!

I would understand if people did plastic surgery to make themselves look better. When I say "Better" it means GOOD not to the extreme that you'd come out to look like a living dead doll! I came across an interesting yet disturbing video of a man they called "Human Ken Doll". When there's Ken, there's always Barbie! She's a mother and they called her "Barbie Wannabe". Read more to view VIDEO!

Urban Cosmopolitan Cape Sienna

Never in my mind would I thought of traveling to Phuket. I visited Phuket when I was younger but the memories were hazy. I don't remember a thing except the fact I had a really fun buffet time staying at Club Med. But that's not my story!

All-day-Breakfast

Do you love big breakfast? If you do, you've come to the right place. Wild Honey, located in 2 location. Scotts Square and Mandarin Gallery. The restaurant is often crowded (You have to Queue) especially weekends. So, please make yourself free for a minute to make a reservation (for Scotts Square only). The queue can be "REALLY" long depending where you'd prefer to seat. We ended up taking the bar seat instead of a normal table and chair. 

I have to say the portion of the food were really big. I had half of my food and I was thinking to myself it is such a waste to throw away the food but I wouldn't want to harm my body by choking myself with it. If you have a big appetite and big stomach, you'd love this place. Food are fairly good. W had "The English" signature dish comes with scrambled eggs, bacon, pork sausage, sauteed mushrooms, really big beans, potatoes  and "Norwegian" in grilled asparagus with poached eggs wrapped with smoked salmon and hollandaise for our brunch along with Beignet and Banana Nutty Cake. Don't forget to go with a cup of hot tea!

I'm a sucker for sweet stuff so Beignet is one of my favorite. Apart from that, it was alright. What you pay is what you get ;). 

P.S: Happy Deepavali day to my indian friends and readers.

Best Ramen So Far!

A good ramen is all about the soup/broth! If you have the crave for a bowl of ramen, Ippudo is where I'd recommend. I've been to Ippudo many times and never once had enough of it. There are 2 branch in Singapore located at Orchard road (Mandarin Gallery) and UE Square at River Valley road. 

I, personally preferred Ippudo located at Mandarin Gallery. Though they are the same branch but I find it different. The soup/broth is different! Ramen at Mandarin Gallery are tastier. I assumed one chef may differ from the other. The ambiance at Mandarin Gallery seemed to be better too. 

The Pork Buns are a must to try! Never once I forgot to order this super delicious pork buns. They are so delicate in your mouth! While munching on that one, get a bowl of Bakuretsu Tofu. Spicy tofu and minced pork in a hot plate, what more can you ask for? It is one of the Chef's Recommendation, have a go and you will not regret!

I'd never failed to always order my bowl of Akamaru Shinaji. For those who prefers richer and flavorful and yet mild, try it out but if you preferred spicy, there are another selection for spicy ramen. They are fairly good! In my opinion, I really think Original Tonkotsu are rather blunt. I didn't get it because it's so darn original that you don't taste anything but a really normal soup. 

Check out the place if you haven't. You'd be surprised with what they can offer you ;). 

 For readers who don't eat pork, I apologize :).

Fashion Fashion!

Asos is one of the famous online shopping for both women and men. The prices are reasonable and there are many good comments on them. 

Yesterday my friend and I made a purchase and decided to go with these two dress (shown in the pictures). It's my first time so I really hope it will turn out as it is. 

One thing good about Asos is that you can Return and Change to a different size or you can get a refund. Plus, shipping to Singapore is free and with the prices they quote, I think it's very reasonable! But again, I can't judge a book by its cover. I need to get the dress and actually try them on in order to say it is worth the hassle to do online shopping. I hope I do not have to return them due to the sizes because then I'll have to wait for another 2 weeks to get to wear them. 

Have you tried buying at Asos? If you had, How would you rate it?

College Edition - Tyra Banks

America's Next Top Model has been my top favorite list for a TV show. I've been a fan since day one they started season 1 and guess what, they are now in season 19! Hosted, Judged and Created by Tyra Banks herself along with 2 new judges, Kelly Cutrone and Rob Evans followed by Bryan Boy as a social media correspondent. To be honest, I think I'd prefer the previous crews from season 1 - 18 with Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel, and J. Alexander. In my opinion, They are a lot more professional in a way that they have more experience in fashion, photography and modeling world thus their advises and comments hold a very important "bible" for the girls in the house. 

Kelly Cutrone is one good judge. She's for real and she won't give high score just because the girls are beautiful. She's even tougher than Tyra! I like the appearance for Kelly to be around much longer. Sexy Rob Evans is 24 years old. Yes, he's one of the top 50 male model. I'm well aware that season 19 is the "college edition" moment, does that mean ANTM needs an extra college male model to do the judging too? (I was just assuming at his age, he could still be in class writing some notes). I realized he loves girls with big bootie too :)

Anyways, I was catching up with the new episode today (Episode 11) and guess what, Nastasia is out! I would have thought so because to me, Laura is a lot better than her. Laura started off very strong and ended up pretty rough after the "come back" of miss Leila :). I love Leila from the beginning, she has such a strong feature and the camera loves her to bit. Her teeth gap is her signature look and I don't think she looks funny. I was very happy to see her back and well, Laura wasn't tad nice! I really hope Leila will take away the prizes and win this cycle with pride. Kiara... What do I need to say about her? She loves the "pity talk" herself  and sometimes I felt as if she wants the audiences to feel bad for her for not getting love from her mother and that she had to raise her own siblings. I get it when she said it the first time but now it's getting really annoying. Lay off the sad sob story and she should just do what she were supposed to do and not just talk! oh well, she still did a good shot tho after her talk about the sob story (Again). 

I can't wait for the next episode!!! but I'm voting for Leila. So, Who do you vote for? and why? Share with me your opinions and thoughts about the new and first winner of college edition ANTM.

Easy on the Ears

One of my favorite music Cafe Del Mar - Espalmador by Afterlife, Enjoy my fellow readers :)


Fresh Oysters!!!

I'm a fan of Balzac Bar and Brasserie. They serve delicious fresh oysters (My Favorite). Balzac is a new restaurant in town. Freshly launched sometime this year. The quality of the dishes are somewhat good. If you have BIG appetite for food, I doubt Balzac is a wise one for you but if you can take more than a dish, please help yourself ;).

Problems you want to Solve!

Sex is the most common article normal human wants to read but does sex problems count as well? Why focus on the problems if there were solutions for it?

Cameron and Robert = NAH!

What's going on with the celebrity life? A 40 years old actress, famous for her "Charlie's Angels" character as Natalie Cook along with Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore. Cameron Diaz (as broadcasted everywhere) was spotted "Flirting" with Pattinson.

REALLY?!?

Ok, Robert Pattinson is 26 years old and she's 40 years old. She could even be his mama for that matter and why isn't she married? She dated Justin Timberlake, Jared Letto, Leonardo Dicaprio and many more if I were to share. I guess Miss Diaz ate all the gorgeous men even though they aren't available (Pattinson with Stewart). We know that cameron is blonde and attractive but it's time for her to find someone her own age perhaps?

Inexpensive "Eye Primer"


I'm not sure how many of you do know this but I'm going to share it anyway. I hope this is helpful to those who might find it interesting.

December Decorations

Christmas is the time when you are longing for snows to fall on your head, you are so cold you need to go home to the fireplace to warm yourself up, you see stockings hanging on top of the fireplace and christmas tree with many decorations.

In Asia, you have all of that except for fireplace. Asia is way too hot for fire ;). In fact, asia needs more ICE! People often says that celebrating christmas in asia where there are no snows is like celebrating Chinese New Year in Europe. It doesn't feel like home.

Singapore is making you feel like home. Apart from the snow idea, singapore brings out the decoration in the streets. They are so colorful I couldn't help but to take out my camera to get one good picture.

Rockin' Soon-To-Be-Mrs-Hemsworth!

Miley Cyrus all grown up, Yes! She was a guest star in a TV series "Two and a half men". Her role suits her very well with her southern accent, that totally gives her 10 more points.

Two and a half men has been one of my favorite TV show for awhile but it gets even better when Ashton Kutcher came in the set (I was never a fan of Ashton). The idea of me watching two and a half men was Jon cryer. He is really a joker in every episodes! Now that Ashton came with his dorky yet smart character, It came to the act really well. I hope to see more good and memorable guest actors/actresses like Miley Cyrus.

The episode did came alive for awhile there. I don't know how many of you are still watching Season 10 but I know for some reason, audience are so used to Charlie Sheen (I was not too fond of his character "playboy brother") as the main character. Yea, he was in for 9 seasons and I get the idea some might go "Boo-Hoo" on Ashton's new character but give it a try. Some might go "WOW" (I'm one of the wow audience).

Set back in the 1998

I've just finished watching 90's movie titled "Return to Paradise". It was set in 1998 played by Vince Vaughn, Joaquin Phoenix and Anne Heche. I was very much into drugs related movies (I don't do such things) and my favorites are Requiem for a dream (2000), Brokedown palace (1999) and Limitless (2011).

The starting of Return to paradise was pretty slow and too much jibber-jabbers between Vince and Anne's relationship. I'd love to see more act for Joaquin as he's the victim in the movie for drugs usage. I used to live in Penang, Malaysia in the year 1998 but I don't remember it looked so old.


I'm not sure how many of you have watched this movie but I'm just gonna give a brief summary about the movie. 3 american men travelled to malaysia for some fun (party, drugs and women), 2 ended back in the states and 1 decided to stay to prolong his journey to "paradise". 2 years later, he was caught with drugs and as we all "know" malaysia was and still is strict in terms of drugs.


The 2 men decided to take the courageous act by flying down to Malaysia to save his friend and ended up one of the guy flew back to the states (save himself from all the trouble) and another joined in to the prison. Sadly, they lost the case and his friend had to be executed.

IMO for this movie, it's just ironic when the malaysian judge decided to call it off. They were just using drugs, they weren't trafficking. I think executing tourists are a major concern to the society. The only reasonable punishment would be imprisonment but definitely not execution. Over a silly news in the newspaper, the judge decided to change his decision. Seriously!?

The movie was good - towards the end tho. Joaquin did a superb acting! He had me almost in tears. I can't imagine anyone was treated that way in malaysia prison. Oh well, I hope they aren't true (part where he had to drink with a tap water).

I recommend this movie but you need patience.

Carpaccio - Italian!

Oso Ristorante serves a memorable dishes. Not just the dish but the concept of the restaurant is good. They have both bar and indoor and semi outdoor restaurant. I made a reservation to be outdoor. We were assigned in the corner, good spot I might say (more private space for my friends and I). But before we get to the chase, we had a drink by the bar (1st floor). Very artsy with many paintings on the wall which I find it very cosy and warm. Try out their French Mojito. They are pretty good ;).

Wooloomooloo, Money don't just grows on trees

WoolooMooloo is one of the famous steak house in Singapore. Last weekend, I visited Wooloomooloo prime steak house with my friend and I must say, It was a divine. The talk about steak just kept me drooling when I think about it (You know how we bloggers need to flash-back those time when you had it tastes in your mouth, you had twice the orgasm).

Steak - French?

How many of you love French food? There are (IMO) in fact a lot of restaurants in Singapore. Sometimes I had a hard time to pick. 

I guess french main dish would be steak? I don't remember how many french restaurant I've been but I could think of two at the moment and both of them specialized in steak. So I assumed their steak must be the top notch.

Weekend Getaway

Many beautiful islands are located in Malaysia. There are at least 6-7 islands in malaysia that I know are famous. They are Sipadan, Redang, Perhentian, Pangkor, Tioman, Rawa and Pulau Besar.

The haven starts again...


There are many villas in Seminyak area (Bali). It is the matter if you picked the right one. Jerami Villa is recommended by many people via TripAdvisor for jerami villa. I love the idea to find out more information on one villa to another before you actually make the decision to hit the "Buy Now" button.

I picked jerami villa because of their good comments and that they are also in the central of Seminyak, which means you can just walk out and see many shop lots. There are many things you can buy in the shop lots and there are also salon where you pamper yourself after a long day walking, eating and shopping.

Civets eat the fruits...

Did you know that Civet Coffee A.K.A Luwak Coffee is the most expensive coffee bean and it is also known as a luxurious coffee. If you must know, civet coffee gives a very rich flavor and people who loves coffee as much as they love their cars and diamonds would afford to have at least one or more a day before they start to go to work. 

A friend once told me (He's from UK) that it is incredibly expensive to buy a cup of civet coffee in London. It was also broadcasted in the newspaper that it could reach up to £70 a cup. He said who would be crazy enough to be spending that kind of money on a cup of coffee? I'd say someone who has a taste bud just like my dad. He enjoyed his coffee every morning with his newspaper. 

My dad gave me 3 packs of civet coffee bean just for fun (He sells them though). I'm not much of a coffee drinker myself (I admit).  But I rather not wasting it so I decided to get a manual grinder from Hario and coffee press from Rulio. They work perfectly fine for me. 

From not knowing how to appreciate coffee, I come to realize why people loves it despite the process of making the coffee. Civets eat the fruits, civets excrete the bean and VOILA! You then called it "Civet Coffee". The fact that a bag of coffee beans can cost up to £500 per kilogramme (in Japan or US), you will require a "Pocket full of money". Coffee shops in New York sell about $50 a cup

So have you tried the prestigious civet coffee yet? If you had, What do you think about it? Let's share your thoughts!

I made many friends from around the world since I started blogging. I realized some of them don't fully understand English and they have problems reading my blog. That would be "My Problem" to fix.
