Legoland Malaysia ❤

It was a short year end getaway for me. Thank you Maybank for giving me a pair of free tickets to Legoland Malaysia. Had this short vacation during my Xmas break and did not have the free time to update it because I was working in Penang the following week without proper internet connection at home and a week after I was assigned to go to China for business trip for 11 days and I just came back two weeks ago.

Posing with the Legoland Malaysia entrance :)
In addition, the size of the photos was too big that I need to resize each of them before uploading them in Picasa to save some memory space in the blogger account. Therefore, it took me almost a week plus to get it done before I can finally pen this post down to share with my readers. 

Posing with my free Legoland tickets! *wide grin*

Anyway, to those who wish to know more about how I win these free tickets, check it out right here: Thank You Legoland Malaysia and Maybank! and the blog post of the contest: Why Maybank Should Give Me Tickets to Legoland?

It was a long weekend break for me and I took this opportunity to go at that period of time. At the same time, the tickets would expire at the end of the year 2012. I did not want to waste my effort blogging about the contest and finally I won the tickets from it but I did not go at all. I just did not want to feel regret about it since it was free. After all, I won't be going there so often because it is quite far from the place I am staying. 

Camho-ing in the car. :P

The queue at the ticket counter was terrible on that day. Phew! Thank god I had the tickets beforehand or else I need two to three hours to buy the tickets and enter the place. In addition, Legoland Malaysia limits number of persons entering the park each day and the crowd on that day was terrible! Imagine if I were to queue up for three hours to get the tickets and I did not get to enter the park on that day? I would have yelled here and there like a crazy woman because I came all the way from KL! Anyway thank you Maybank once again. :)

Below are the photos I had taken in Legoland Malaysia! :)

Thank you Maybank once again! :D

#2 Movie Review: Premiere Screening of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters ❤


It's my second movie review of the year. Thank you Nuffnang for giving me the opportunity to watch it with the rest of the bloggers. This time my sis, Jamie Yeap joined me for movie screening after so long of hiatus mode. She is currently having her three months of semester break and she is back in KL for a week to settle her stuffs. So I took this opportunity to ask her to join this premiere screening with me. Yay! *wide grin*


Synopsis
Catching up with Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton), many years after the traumatic incident involving a gingerbread house, the siblings have grown into vengeful bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. Over the years, the siblings became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy because for an unknown reason, harmful spells and curses do not work well against them.

Jeremy Renner as Hansel and Gemma Arterton as Gretel

The Mayor of Augsburg, Germany recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress Muriel (Famke Janssen) who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches' gathering during the upcoming 'Blood Moon' night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer (Peter Stormare) who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.

My opinion: The movie is good. But there are some scenes which are too gory. The witches in the movie are beautiful especially Muriel. Muriel wants Gretel's heart so that the witches will be immortal and not afraid of fire forever! Anyway, I would rate it 4/5. 

Selca-ing with my tickets. Thank you Nuffnang! ❤

P/s: Remember to catch this movie in cinemas starting on 24th January 2013! 

lotsa love,

#1 Movie Review: Premiere Screening of The Impossible ❤

Holla people! I am back in the blogging world. Was away in China for 11 days for work. To those who don't know, China banned Facebook, Twitter and Blogspot which means that i couldn't blog, tweet nor facebook-ing for 11 days!!! Thank god I had Instagram with me or else I would be bored to death in China. 

Back to the  topic. I am finally back in Malaysia to watch my first premiere screening of the year 2013 which is The Impossible! Got two invitations in hand and couldn't choose between The Last Stand and The Impossible. And finally I had come to a decision to watch The Impossible! Thank you Nuffnang!

The Impossible starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor ❤

Synopsis
Maria Bennett (Naomi Watts) and her husband Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons Lucas (Tom Holland), Thomas and Simon have their Christmas holiday in a tropical paradise resort in Thailand. However, the devastating 2004 tsunami destroys the coastal zone.
Maria and Lucas are separated from the others. Maria has badly hurt a leg. At Maria's initiative they rescue a small boy, Daniel. The three climb in a tree to protect themselves against a possible new wave. They are found and taken to a hospital. From time to time Maria asks Lucas the color or her leg: red is good, black would be bad. She encourages Lucas to see if he can provide any help to others. It turns out that he can help people find relatives, and actually reunites a father and a son. When he returns to Maria's bed she is not there, and due to a mix-up by the hospital staff he is implicitly told she died; a phone call can be made, but Lucas does not remember the number of his grandpa. Actually, Maria had an operation and later she reunites with Lucas.

Elsewhere Henry, Thomas and Simon are together and safe. Henry sends Thomas and Simon to a safe place, asking the young boy Thomas to look after his little brother, while he keeps searching for Maria and Lucas. When he arrives at the place where Thomas and Simon are supposed to be, they have been sent on to an unknown place. Communication facilities are scarce, but another man, Karl, allows him to make a phone call to his family in his home country. He keeps it very short, but is allowed to make another call. Maria and Lucas have not contacted the family, so it is still uncertain whether they survived.

Henry and Karl go searching every shelter and hospital and arrive at the hospital; Karl, who has a bad leg, does not want to slow down Henry and writes down the names of his wife and child for Henry, so he can look for their names. Lucas sees him from a distance but loses him again. Thomas and Simon, who are transported in a truck, happen to be there too. Simon jumps off the truck to pee on a nearby tree. As Lucas calls his father, Simon and Thomas hear him, run toward him and the four reunite, and Lucas tells that Maria is also alive.

They all soon meet up with Maria. She takes surgery and the next day due to their travel insurance they can travel on an ambulance jet to Singapore. Lucas shares with Maria his joy that he has seen that Daniel has been reunited with his father. As they take off, the vast destruction is shown, and a voice-over observes that this is one of the many families scarred for life by the disaster.

My opinion: I love this movie. It was really touching. I was crying when the family of five found each other at last. You guys should watch this! I'll rate the movie 4/5. Remember to catch this movie on theatres starting on 17th January 2013!

P/s: My first blog post of year 2013! ❤
