Wall-E Movie Screening!

Yup, I went for Nuffnang's Wall-E movie screening at Lido Hall 2 yesterday. First time attending such community events. Saw Boss Ming and spotted a few other bloggers whose blogs I read. But I very low profile so no one knows me. hehe.

There was free popcorn and mineral water on every seat.


So the movie's not too bad, not just focused on the cuteness of Wall-E but also on other deeper issues like our ailing Earth etc. Just that the starting was rather sloooow.

Thank you Nuffnang! =D

******
Went to satisfy my mahjong craving after that. Won quite a few games =)

We were so bored that we did this


Alright, I need to get some studying done. Cya!

(U)

People and things change.

Things go unappreciated till they are lost and never to be retrieved.

I don't know where I'm heading to anymore.

Without respect and effort nothing can go on.

I want to watch Wall-E!

Picture taken from www.whoiswalle.com.sg

I've been waiting soooo long for this movie to actually show in theatres. I want to watch it because Wall-E is just so cute, so innocent and brings smiles to me by just watching the trailer!

Pixar animations like Ratatouille and Finding Nemo have all been great, haven't they?

Wall-E, In cinemas August 28!

So I'm sure Wall-E will be great too!

F(ol)lowing Video?

I was watching the SCV all-day Chinese news channel a few days back.

And as the Olympic fever is burning on, I was of course excited to watch any news related to it. But after the news broadcaster described vividly all the sweat and action and proceeded to show some footage of the events, this came up on the screen instead!

I was of course irritated!! What copyright issues?! Pay for SCV to watch this?

Then I realized and spotted the glaring mistake on the screen. FLOWING video?

It took more than 2 days before the mistake was spotted and changed.
Such a simple mistake overlooked.

Why eating Botak Jones is sinful

Have eaten Botak Jones for a few times so far. And each visit there ends up with a similar scenario. I'm sure many of you experience it too.

But it doesn't come clear enough till you have many people eating Botak Jones together. See photo below...


Fries left over on every single plate! Even the guys couldn't finish the regular servings.

& think I caught a glimpse of the menu having some fries dish costing $10.50! Add all the fries we wasted that day and I'm sure they add up to 1 entire plate.

It's sinful to eat Botak Jones cos of too much food wastage! Their servings are really overwhelming in my opinion and I guess it's only okay to eat it when you're reallyyy hungry.

I am afraid of the dark, are you?

Something really bad happened to me yesterday morning. I LOST MY SIGHT FOR 3-4 minutes.

Total darkness. Not even a faint glimpse of light. It was the scariest moment of my life. Something so precious taken away.

I got out of bed with a throbbing headache. Sat by the side of the bed to compose myself.

Headed to the toilet for a leak and I felt like throwing up. I did try to throw up but nothing came out. I then went to the bathroom for a shower.

Closed my eyes and washed my face. When I opened them, I couldn't see anything! I shook my head as I shut and squeezed my eyes. Nothing.

By then, I was feeling faint as well. I didn't know WHAT THE HELL WAS HAPPENING TO ME!

I fumbled and grabbed hold of the towel to balance myself. I wanted to get out of the toilet to go rest on my bed.

I was disorientated as my hands reached out to feel only the shampoo and soap bottles. I knew the door was just beside but something so simple like unlocking a door seemed so hard when you're in a frenzy.

Breathing was getting difficult too. I wanted to just pass out in the toilet to end my agony.

Then, by luck, my fingers finally got hold of the lock. I slid the door open, said a little prayer as I exited the bathroom.

I fell once I came out, onto the stairs. I grabbed hold of the railings which saved me from tumbling down.

I was tired and losing hope. What if I never get to see again?

I sat down, placed my hands on each temple, praying to let me get back my vision. I was trying to keep back negative thoughts of losing the normal life I've been living.

I focused. Slowly but surely, I began to see fuzzy dots appear. My heart skipped a beat.

Please save me

I could finally clearly see the good old stairway I walk up and down everyday!!

I was in another state of shock, but really thankful and kept repeating my thanks.

I am really afraid of the dark. I don't want to go there anymore.

Insomnia

I'm still awake at this ungodly hour!!

I can't get to sleep. My eyes don't feel a wee bit heavy. My mind is wide awake.

I wanted to sleep at around midnight, but dragged a while till 1+ am and finally went to bed. I really hate tossing and turning in bed; hypnotizing myself to quickly drift off to sleep!

I guess it's the terrible heat that is keeping me awake. And probably because I woke up at 11am the day before. Even had a nap from 630pm to 730pm.

Argh. I'm going to get the air-con to do some work.

*Sleep, go to sleep*

HK Cafes

Went to Sunset way one day last week. It has evolved into a somewhat 'hip' place with pubs, steamboat restaurants, steakhouse etc.

Settled for this Hong Kong cafe - Cafe D'Orient.

The first table we were brought to sit at was full of ANTS. I felt itchy all over and so we changed seats. Should have seen the 'commotion' among the staff there. 3 of them went over to the ants-infested table to examine and scrutinize the table. Another 3 peeked out from the kitchen area =_=

Set below + dessert costs $9.90

Beef fried with onions. Amount of onions comparable to beef.

I had mango pudding as dessert. It was rather normal, with the pieces of mango seemingly to be those mango jelly.

I guess the best mango pudding I've had so far would be that from Mayim!
The huge chunks of mango found within are truly FRESH mango. Yum yum.

Had dinner at another HK cafe last week too. Xin Wang HK Cafe.

And I liked the baked spagetti with fish I ordered! haha. cos I loveeee cheese. Plus the pieces of fish were soft and delicious too.

I guess I'll just end off here abruptly. Cya!

Why hold on when treated like trash?

I have a friend who is recently feeling rather down due to friendship issues.

Here's the scenario:
  • Friend goes on exchange and gets to know roommate
  • Friend and roommate's friendship blossoms
  • End of exchange and back to Singapore, friend feels that roommate is ignoring her and attitude towards her changes 180 degrees
Friend has been brooding over this issue for slightly more than a month already. Everyone around her, including me, advises her to let it go. I mean, since someone doesn't reciprocate your kindness and effort in maintaining a friendship, why torture yourself and hang on to it?

Friend says MSN conversations with roommate are ignored, or at best, nonchalant one-liners and ignored again thereafter. Smses are one-wayed as well.

At the start when friend began to feel ignored, she did questioned roommate if something was wrong between them. Roommate denied and dismissed it.

I really cannot understand why friend is holding on. I sense depressive feelings every time I see her. It is affecting her too much that even daily life is disrupted.

Just 2 days ago, I wanted Subway for dinner. You know what was her reply? "I don't like Subway. My roommate promised to bring me to Subway when we return to Singapore"

Attempts to encourage her to let go seem to enter one ear and exit from the other. What else can I do? Sigh
