A little movie update

Have been busy with school stuff recently and the semester is coming to an end! Always 1 of my favourite time of the year. It just happened that my birthday week is also the last school week. Well, it could have been better if it was placed after the finals though!!

Anyway, I just wanted to post a little update here on my blog to share some movie reviews!! 
VHS and G.I Joe.

//OOTD// 
Kaleidoscope Aristocratic top from Luxy Couture
This top is really unique and different from those I have. With pretty Kaleidoscope patterns on the top just like its name! Makes you stand out from the crowd with such bright colourful prints.

Sometimes the best accessories have the simplest designs! And I could easily match this with any other outfit.

V/H/S
The scariest, rawest horror movie of the year (TOTALLY NOT...)


The whole movie was recorded in such a budget way with a video recorder. Mind you, its not even some pro quality video cam that people own nowadays. It's those old, lousy type which makes you feel so giddy after watching it for long. Can you imagine the whole movie played this way? 

It would have been acceptable if the story line was good, but seriously, for some parts I went laughing away with my boy, because it was ridiculous, not funny. I would admit that there're parts of suspense in which I tried to cover my eyes, but overall, the scare level was really low. Some gore here and there but nothing close to Final Destination and not to forget, FD is already quite a low standard of gore. 

The whole story covers 5 different horror stories. A group of guys, I would say bastards, break into a house to steal a VHS tape and they started watching the tapes found in the room, with a dead old man sitting right behind.. WHAT.. Why would you even want to watch horror clips with a dead person behind. It's almost like he will pounce on you at any moment :0

Amateur Night

This had a predictable plot. A group of guys brought back two chicks from bars to their place to film a reality porn video using camera glasses. One chick passes out almost immediately and the other.. is definitely creepy.. Look at her huge eyes. And she kept whispering "I like you" to the guy. It was so obvious that she's gonna attack them and rip them apart anytime soon. I was just awaiting for that to happen. One thing I like?

You're going to see balls ripped apart.

Second Honeymoon

The story was quite boring at the start with a girl filming her 2nd honeymoon with her boyfriend. The scares all started when this suspicious girl came knocking on their hotel room door asking for a ride the next morning. And in the middle of the night, some unknown person came into their hotel room and switched on the video cam. This is very unexpected and I went totally :0 when the last scene was shown.

Tuesday The 17th

In this story, there's nothing much except for gore and violence. One girl lured all her friends to the woods and acted really strange, saying that all of them are going to die in this forest. Some dead body shots were seen in the video and there's a distorted killer always appearing the screen from nowhere. However, the story line was just bizarre with no explanations for this weird phenomenon. 

So all I saw was killing and killing, but no idea why it actually happened.

The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger

 Similar to Paranormal activity 1, this is filmed using a webcam, where Emily heard strange footsteps and noises coming from her hostel. She seeks help from her surgeon boyfriend not knowing what is prepared for her. There're ghostly images of kids running around the apartment and Emily attempted to talk to the boy but things were not as simple as she thought..
10/31/98

It's like Halloween party gone wrong. A group of guys were dressed up for a Halloween party and they ended up in an empty house. Being curious, they wandered around but eventually found themselves in danger after rescuing an unknown girl. The house instantly got alive and "possessed" with hand prints on the wall and arms sticking out of the walls and floors. The group of guys then realized that it wasn't a good deed they're doing, but danger awaits them. 
All in all, the story line kinda sucks, with maybe 1 or 2 concepts being quite interesting and unique. But I really cannot go for movies that have poor quality filming though I understand that this is the main focus and intention of the whole movie. What could have been done is to reduce the number of horror stories and make each one more in-depth and to add in explanations. 5 is probably too much. 

Both my boy & I regretted watching VHS and I was constantly fidgeting in my seat.

Ratings: 2/5 stars  

Next movie - G.I Joe 2: Retaliation 

Couple date with Cy & Iris last Thursday ♥‿♥


A decent but unoriginal story plot with breathtaking action and fighting scenes. I have watched many "terrorist-like" movies and most of them are always involving bombs, especially Nuclear bombs. They really like Nuclear bombs a lot because there's a lot of threat in it. You can almost predict the main story line. 

Terrorist/ Bad guy releases the nuclear bomb

and then

The heroes have to snatch the briefcase to abort the nuclear mission.

Sounds familiar to Mission Impossible 4 right?

Out of many terrorists and action-packed movies, I would say one of my favourites is Die Hard. I have watched 2 versions before and both are so different and unique to their own. One is about the entire traffic controlled by the terrorists and they successfully turned the whole city into chaos, causing much injuries and death. While another is even more intense, the terrorists have taken in charge of the airport. And there is one guy who saves the day. (The same actor in the top left photo)


I don't know if it's just me being sleepy, but I kept falling asleep at the start of the movie, and wasn't fully awake till this part. Where the ninjas fought at the mountain cliffs, they're running and chasing on the mountain walls as if it was just a breeze. 

I enjoyed watching them use Katanas to fight, and there's one part where they prove that Katana can be faster than a gun. 




I probably enjoyed the action and fighting scenes more than the story line itself. And to me, the show was nicer compared to many other movies, but if I were to compare it with just the action genre, then sad to say, it's only average to me. This could probably be one of the many shows that I would forget after some time because it didn't leave me a strong impression.

Watching movies have always been our favourite pastime, sometimes I feel that we spend too much on movies too. I have a rather big stack of movie tickets kept in my drawer. But I feel a little disappointed that they have changed the tickets to thinner paper which are of lousier quality. Makes me more unwilling to keep the movie tickets.. 


Looking forward to Iron Man 3 with my boy!

[AD] La Moda Vivo

Sponsored Advertorial:

I love wearing crop tops because they always look cute and trendy! I have always wanted to get a Tribal crop top for casual dates or match it with a high-waist shorts for my school OOTD. 

And I'm definitely LOVING this Zinnia Crop Top which was sponsored by 
La Moda Vivo!

Honestly, I was very happy with the apparels that were sponsored! Because they fit me perfectly and I love the cutting and everything! 

 And it's really the trend I l♥ve!! 

Note: LMV ships INTERNATIONALLY!! So what are you waiting for!


Check out their latest collection: CHASE THE BLUES

and their "SALE" section to pick out the cheap and fashionable apparels!


An edgy and comfortable piece of wear! Turn the volume up with pretty aztec prints!! I think this is a great piece to wear out on a casual date or to a beach picnic. You could pair it with a high-waist shorts but for me, I love to pair it with low-waist. Grab a pair of strappy sandals with shades and off you go! 

I think that strappy footwear really matches tribal outfits a lot! Don't you think so too?



Match it with:
Brown shades
Black statement necklace
Denim low-waist shorts
Strappy sandals
Cute vintage backpack in blue

I love tribal patterns because it will never look boring with all the complex and colourful patterns on your outfit.

I think that the important feature of crop tops is the cutting and length, some just looks ridiculously long, (or maybe because I'm too short T_T).. But I find this cutting really flexible and good!


If you haven't had enough of trendy aztec prints, here's another Xanthe Aztec Dress in Orange to add to your wardrobe! I could have chose another design but the Aztec designs from LMV just attracts me so much!

Love the vibrant bright prints of this dress. The material is so soft and smooth too! There's a drawstring at the waist so no worries for girls who are afraid of showing their tummy after they eat!  I can just gorge down all the food without caring how bloated my tummy will get :3


This is how I created a vintage OOTD look.

Match it with:
Gold aztec inspired statement necklace from Impulse
Brown strappy wedges
Brown vintage handbag
Weaved brown belt

You might want to add on a cute kitty/bear hairband to stand out from the crowd!


They have this dress in other aztec patterns and different colours too! 


If you're not too keen in aztec prints, then go on and shop for other trendy outfits at LMV. 
From classy to cute, its your pick! 




Remember to create the perfect look with matching accessories!

Can't wait to wear this out some other day! ^_^

[AD] Is maths a torture? Go for Uber Mathematics!

ADVERTORIAL:

When you're sitting at your desk and you open up your assessment book....


You started working on a challenging Maths question..
Have you felt like you're going crazy while solving it? And you just feel soooo urghhhhhh.

Or you simply feel like flipping the table or shredding the paper into pieces?




If you ever felt this way, then the SOLUTION is here at 

"The ultimate, above all, the best, top, something that nothing is better than." 


Über Philosophy
If you can see it, you can solve it

Why choose ÜBER MATHEMATICS?
The few questions or concerns could be.. 

"Is the tutor reliable and experienced?????"

"Would the tuition fees be very expensive..?"

"What will be provided for the lesson?"

"What teaching levels are provided??"

Don't worry about all these because all the details are provided at their website!

The educator is actually an experienced Maths tutor who specializes in A and E Mathematics. He has taught in various tuition and enrichment centres so be rest assured that he knows what he's doing. Using a student orientated approach, he will engage students with effective learning as well.

I think that it is important for materials to provided during the lesson so that extra costs could be saved such as buying stacks and stacks of assignments for yourself/ your kids. I'm sure the centre knows what to provide for the school syllabus as well! Not forgetting a consultation class is also very effective for a student's learning as the tutor is able to better tackle the student's weakness in a particular topic.

A EVEN "Sweeter" Date

A "Sweet" Date, doesn't only refer to a romantic date with your loved one. 

Though in my case it is as well 

But I would name this a EVEN "sweeter" date because we satisfied our sweet tooth at Brunetti! Which I was super excited for as I love eating desserts. Which girl doesn't like sweet stuff! I'm already going crazy at the sight of all the cakes and we were also greeted with the Gelato section filled with colourful tubs of Ice-cream the moment we stepped in. 


Look at the variety of flavours they have to offer! Drooling at the sight of it already. 

I didn't get to try this yet as we didn't want to splurge on desserts. We could visit this place again anyway! The must-try list: Cookies, Carapino (No idea what's this but looks good), Berry cheesecake (Love cheesecake flavours!), Cappuccino, and Pistachio (One of my all-time favourite)!! 

Other flavours look supaaaaaaa appetizing as well, perhaps I'll try them after I'm done with my favourites!



You all might know that I'm in love with Macarons as well. I know its always pricey to get them as it's at least $2 for a small bite, but I know I just cannot resist that temptation. 

There are many flavours here which are not sold in common stores like Passionfruit, Pistachio and Coconut. And macarons are just too colourful that you can't take your eyes off the shelf. Look at the bottom filled with cakes too! In all sorts of shapes, design and colours! Some which looks too cute to be eaten.

Most of the bigger slices are roughly $8 while the smaller cakes which are bite-sized are roughly $2+. I should have ordered a few small cakes rather than a big one though, so that I can try many flavours at the price of $8 :3


The Chocolate section which I'm not very interested in. 


And other cakes & pastries

I was very interested in the Strawberry Eclair because there's my favourite whip cream and strawberries! But it's $6 so I figured out that it wasn't really worth it, I could just buy myself a box of strawberries, spam loads of cream on it, and have it at home.


Apart from desserts and cakes, Brunetti also serves main course and breakfast as well!

Look at our HAPPY faces! Waiting to devour our food!



Opera Slice ($8.00)

When my teeth sunk into the layers of cream, I could feel all the Chocolate & coffee cream taste together, bitter and sweet. A perfect balance, appetizing and delicious. It stated that there's liquer in it, but I didn't taste much of it except for the first few bites. 


Passione ($8.00)

My boy said that it was the most unique cake taste he had ever, but I shuddered the moment I tasted it. Not that it's revolting or anything like that, but I dislike sour cakes. It was sweet with a tinge of sourness in it >_< Like its name, the cake looked super passionate because it was sooooooo RED.

My coconut macaron ($2.25) was nice as a bite-sized snack, but pretty average as a macaron. Felt more like a cookie to me, probably because the cream wasn't thick enough. Mostly I felt was the crunchiness of the shell. 


Ciambella ($5.00)

I don't know why he ordered a $5 sugar ring donut over here, but he did and regretted. I never tried but it wasn't nice for him. And here's what he said:

"You should never order low-class food in high-class places"

Hmmm, what a stereotype hahahah


We looked around our seats and realized that we're the only Asian people there!


We love the food here and we're definitely coming back!
