the much awaited..

after waiting for sooooo long, i got to watch New first i thot of watching Mulan today with my sister and will prolly watch New Moon with my brothers on Monday. but all of us decided to watch both. we arrived early at the ticket booth and we are fortunate to get kind-of-okay seats. usually i wouldn't choose the side rows, but then my fave seats are booked already. never mind..edward's the most important thing ;p
yeah, the book will always be better..but i love it no matter what. i'll watch it again and again and again..hehe
Mulan is something that i would totally recommend to everyone..well, we are the only 'non-pure' Chinese watching the movie..the others are all Chinese. but do go and watch it, it's well worth. i didn't even know Vicki Zhao acted as Mulan herself..i just sort of liked the ads i saw when i was at my auntie's house earlier this week. i think it's the real version of it, coz it didn't turn out as i hoped it would, being a romantic movies' fan myself. but still, Mulan is a good movie

the trip that we decided at the last-minute

my grandma wanted us to go to my auntie's house in Penang coz she's there for the that was what we did. 
it rained heavily, twice on the way to Penang..really heavy downpour, i was worried when we couldn't really see what's in front. only the hazard lights were visible. thankfully nothing bad happened.
we arrived there around 5 pm i think. after resting for a while, we went out for dinner at Key's. this time there's only one section left, there used to be other food offered..but now, there's just char kuey teow, satay, ytf and kerang rebus. and the service was really bad. i don't think we'll be going there again after that one last time. and the ytf, so cannot beat Taiping's..:p
the next day we went to the island, first stop was Chowrasta market. we got there when they had just started their business in the morning :p not many ppl around yet, can take picture..if not sure segan one..hehe.
after making the purchases, we made our way to Feringgi Beach. we went around and took some pictures, and had laksa and prawn mee by the beach, at the stalls near the Spice Garden. 
the prawn mee was a letdown, but laksa was quite good..owh, but i wish we stopped by Taiping to have the laksa sold by this pakcik at the foot of Maxwell Hill. his laksa was nicer.
after that we went to Queensbay Mall coz my mom said she wanted to buy some stuff for my cousins. i noticed there was not that many ppl there..why eyh?
that night we went to a kedai makan..maybe it's Siew Bee Chin, i couldn't recall the name much..huhu. it's stated that they offer hailam food. but i think they offer practically everythg..and all the races go there to eat. you can see Chinese patrons, Indians and Malays. really 1kedai 1Malaysia ;)
as usual, since we're already up north and so near to Alor Star..we stopped by Pekan Rabu. 
this stall is a must, every single time we are at Pekan Rabu. there are a lot of kuih to choose from, but the kuih bingka and lepat are really nice. a lot of things are sold here..pekasam, ikan kering, dodol, all sorts of kerepek, clothes, etc. there is a bazaar along the sides too, i guess coz today's Eid Adha..there are cakes and festive cookies offered. 
next stop, Kedah Padi Museum near Gunung Keriang. everyone else already went there, so my mom took me inside to show me the revolving painting. it was awesome..the painter's work was really detailed and he portrayed everything in vicinity of the museum. when we were there, there were 5 buses of Chinese school kids which made it really crowded. dunno why they're so interested in that particular museum, but according to my auntie, a lot of Chinese schools' students made trips to there. 
when it was time for lunch, we decided to go try for ourselves the Radix fried chicken. 
it's like KFC, but everything is locally made by this company HPA. i think it's great for a local product. yeah it need some changes, but i'd say keep up the good work..and when are you opening a new outlet here in Melaka? ;)
another stop, Masjid Zahir..the state mosque..i like the designs too.
that night we went to Bukit Mertajam, to my grandma's bestie's house. they went a long way back, when they were both living in the same area, when my mother was younger. she was really excited to see us coz the last time we met was when i was a few months old and my mom was preggy with my brother. they had a lot to talk, but sadly i can't understand anythg..*sigh*
with grandma and cousins
me with cousin Fernice
then the next day we came back and stopped to pick my sister for her Aidiladha holiday on the way home

after all..

been hearing everyone saying this particular movie was so good, so i decided to watch it..what movie eyh? it's (500) days of summer..even tho it's not the kind of movies that i would like coz of what really happened to the girl and the boy, but it's good. the narrator also said it wasn't a love story, it was a story about the boy, tom fell in love with the girl, summer. sadly, the girl didn't believe in love. that's the reality of's saying when u think or expect everything to turn out okay for u, it seldom does.
but still, don't give up on's out there waiting for u ;p
owh and i love this song zooey deschanel sang for karaoke..

p/s: for my friend who had the courage to let the guy know about ur feelings, u did a great job already. don't fret much and get well soon :)

long distance is the hardest

or maybe being a time traveler's wife is waaaaaaaayyy more difficult..hurmm..lotsa stuff to think about.
can a relationship withstand the heat, even after knowing each other for a long, long time? there's so much coming, and u can only go thru so much..does love prevail?

the book's of course better than this..i dun think who hasn't read it wud understand much of the movie pun. but it turned out okay..the kids who acted in this movie mmg cute2..both Alba n clare(as a kid)..okay, Henry jugak..even tho my friend thot he's a girl at first..haha..
