The Vow


Went out for a movie with Lih today. :) Cam died before I could get a better pic, oh wells.



We watched The Vow. The couple looked like they were really in love. TT Their cting skills grade: A++++++ lol. Story line was subtle and not those dramatic kinds, but it conveyed a lot of depth. It was inspired by a true story and it was really touching. Cried twice. Rate 8/10.



The movie should give a positive effect, that one should not stop hoping, for love will always find a way to come back to those worthy of it. But then, I suddenly went emo and random thoughts came into mind lol. Imagine how fragile a relationship is, that anything can happen. One second two person are together and sweet as hell, the next, they went their separate ways. If they wanna forget you and end it, nothing you can do bout it. :(




Anyways, I wore the top sis brought back for me from her KL trip last week. She got me a Starbucks tee that I've been dying to get since forever too. :) *likes*




With all the love,

Universal Studios Singapore III



Now moving on to my favorite zone in Universal Studios, Far far away. <3

Before visiting US itself, this was already the zone I most looked forward to. Basically this zone revolved around Shrek and Fiona and Donkey. I wanted to come to this zone first but it was located in the middle so yea. :/




The super pretty, dreamy, lovely castle. <3 <3 <3 

P.S. I haven't went to Disney Land before I wanna go. :'( The castle would be so magical to see.

Upon arrival at Far Far Away, we saw Puss in Boots but we didn't manage to catch a picture with him. Desperately looked out for him for the rest of the day cuz he was cute, and we wanted so bad to take a picture with him. :(




This picture is slanted, but I still love it so much cuz it was taken for us by a 7/8 yrs old little girl. :)




We watched Donkey, accompanied by pianist Captian Hook and drummer Headless Knight, performed for us at a show called Donkey Live.



It was like a stand-up show after that and there was an interactive session. It was really cool cuz the visitor could actually interact with Donkey in real time and Donkey would spontaneously respond, which was cool.

The guy in the picture was asked smell his armpits and to pledge not to take baths for a month. LOL.




@Shrek's house. There was also another 4D Shrek thing but I'm lazy to talk about it. :)



We were bout to have a picture with Shrek and Fiona but unfortunately, the 20 minutes meet-and-greet session was up. Been told that the next meet and greet session would be at 6.20pm. So we helplessly watched them walk away. :(



The last zone in the park, Madagascar. :D



The beautiful Merry-Go-Round made of Madagascar characters.



Then there was a tunnel boat ride with a Madagascar story being told on both sides of the river bank. The characters were moving and talking, and there were dramatic lights and sounds along the way. Loved it!

There was once, a waterfall appeared right in front of the trail. We thought we'd get soaked but when we were about to go under it, the water stream parted to the sides. It was so cool!! Lol.



This cute blonde kid was sitting in front of me. Before the ride, the kid kept asking the person-in-charge, "Is the ride very fast? Will it be very scary?" in the cutest American accent. Awww.





Lion, Hippo Gloria, and the annoying Penguins. :D



So we've finished visiting the 7 zones and went back to Hollywood. Then we saw Kungfu Panda Po! But again, we were not in time for the meet-and-greet session lol.



So for the time being, we just got a shot with Frankenstein like what I've said in the first post la. We were told then, that the next session for Po would be at 6.20pm. And at once we were like, wtf Po's time exactly the same with Shrek's time!! Cham!

As to wait for 6.20pm, we went walking around again. And now I have to confess that my Universal Studios posts didn't go accordingly to chronology lol. Only at this time, we went to ride the Accelerator, and the mummy ride. ><



By the time we reached Far Far away once again, we bumped into Puss in Boots! Got a shot with him, and felt really lucky for that. He was adorable! :D



At exactly 6.20pm, we went back to the tent and got a shot with Shrek and Fiona. :D P.S. Fiona looked really scary in person!!

Then right after, we ran like crazy back to Hollywood to catch up with Po. LOL I should've videoed how we ran from Far far away, half across the wide compounds of Universal Studios, straight to Hollywood. We both were basically desperate at that point and it was hilarious.



Thank God! We caught up got the shot with Po. :D But if we hadn't cut queue, we'd miss the chance once more. I feel guilty now. :/ 

Okay after all the drama, we were supposed to catch a musical called Monster something at the Hollywood Theater starting at 6.30pm.  



But we saw a crowd gathering around to watch a Break dance showcase. So, we stopped and watched. And for that we skipped the musical, and who knows what awesomeness we've missed? Like seriously.

Cousin said to me, why did we give in to boys so easily?? LOLOLOL. I don't know girl, I really don't know..



After the showcase, the crew posed for pictures with the visitors too. While taking the picture, we each hugged the dancer we liked the most lolol.

I honestly don't know why cousin liked the one she did, haha. But as for my choice, he had the cutest smile ever! Adorabruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu <3



Christmas tree at Vivo City after we left Sentosa that night.

And that's the end of my Universal Studios and as a whole, my singapore trip! Hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I have writing it. :)

Charity Dinner + Concert @ BCCK



Sister and I, in the car, on the way to BCCK yesterday evening. :)




We were invited to attend a charity concert held to raise funds for the new Mental Health "Half-way-home" building. 

When the half-way-house is completed, it will be a place for the recovered mental health center inmates to move into from the Sentosa Mental Hospital, a place where they'll learn to adapt and to be independent.A stepping stone for them before they reenter the society. 

To build the half-way-home, the estimated cost needed is RM2 million. And as you can see, the charity concert was a very grand event. On this night itself, tickets sales alone has raised RM550,000.



View of the venue and the stage through the projector screen.



Guests were entertained by a singer flew straight from China named Qiu Lin. I don't know the singer, but she gave quite a good performance. Accompanied by dancers, she sang classics from the late Teresa Teng all night long.



A close-up of the singer's face. She's really fair and has a graceful disposition.




Qiu Lin had 3 outfit changes that night. 

For her second outfit, she wore the tradisional Kebaya and sang Rasa Sayang for us. My favourite outfit among 3, most probably was the first outfit eg the black Cheongsam she wore.



 Her, the stage, and the dancers. :)





While the performances were going on, we enjoyed flavorful dishes served by BCCK.



The dessert, pudding served with a sweet-sour berry reduction.



Before the night came to an end, they hosted a session for the audience to make song requests upon donation to raise extra money on the spot. The duet between Dato Wee and Qiu Lin raised more than RM15,000, with a generous donation of RM10,000 from another Dato alone. ><

The only down point of the program was the female emcee called Leena, or Lina or whatever. She squeaked all night long and her high pitch yells that tortured my ears. And she was utterly disrespectful. Her sweeping statements and thoughtless comments insulted the crowd over and over again. She claimed that she is famed in Kuching. Anyone knows her? I don't like her one bit.




Us during dinner. :)

Even though it was a meaningful event to begin with, sis and I were reluctant to attend it. We expected it to be dull and boring. But who knew, the night turned out to be quite enjoyable.

Anyways, I hope the association will successfully raise the much needed 2 million soon. Continuous kindness from the society is very much appreciated.





With all the love,

JennaMarbles

Jenna Marbles is a Youtuber like Nigahiga and Kevjumba. But caution, she's extremely vulgar in her language usage. And she does the most inappropriate things at times. Despite that, I can't get enough of her videos cuz she's so funny and random. :) And I love the pink in her hair. Gorgeous!

Here are some of her videos. Check them out if you're up for it. :) Viewer discretion is advised. Like seriously.





I hope I won't regret sharing these videos. ><





Watched John Carter in 3D yesterday night. 

I though I would hate the movie but in turn, I loved it. There wasn't much 3D effects, but I think the movie experience got so much better just for the fact that the backgrounds and stuff were in 3D.

So the movie was about a guy whose accidentally transported to Barsoom from Jasoom and started a life there. The Heliums need him to save Barsoom from the Zodangas. Sab Than is the Jeddak of the bad guys. The Dejah of Helium ran away from the kingdom and fell in love with John. The Tharks initially hate John but in the end supported him in bringing down the Zodangas, and it's funny when they call him Virginia. Sola, the daughter of Tar Tarcus, the Jeddak of the Tharks helped him in achieving that. Sola's dog, Woola was ugly but oh so adorable. The Therns (Angel-like creatures) wants to kill him for whatever reason they have. And with a clever plot, the Thern is killed. Haha it probably made no sense to you guys but I had fun explaining all these. 

And with all that an alright movie was created. Rate it 7/10. Thanks for the movie. :)

Results


Okie so STPM results were released on the 7th of March. Yes, I got my results too. But no, I didn't do as good as I hoped to.

Mum jokingly said to me, "Eeee I thought you'd get at least a 3.5 for me," but I know she's more or less disappointed by my grades. Daddy comforted me by saying, "You are one of the 16% so you are considered good la. Congratulations." But still, I think I've let them down. :C



The teacher was taking picture of students and he asked Ive, Pheng and I to join in the picture with the top scorers. Who knew, the reported snapped a picture, and it came out in the news.

Gosh now people think I'm one of the top scorers like seriously. ><



Quite absurd really, lol. But it's a nice picture of me so I shall happily keep the newspaper cutting. ;)

Happy for my sister (From left No5), who has achieved the one and only 4 Flat in the Science stream of the school. Congrats also to Joshua sis for getting 4A and 1A- (From right No5). And for the sister (Middle) that got 3A and one A-. I know you're sad bout your results but seriously, it's good enough edy. So proud of you guys! And congrats to all my friends from Form 6. We did it, it's over. :)


So you think this is the end of our stress and anxiety? Not even close!

We still have to worry bout getting our butts into universities, and having to choose the right course for ourselves. In short, I pray that I get accepted into the uni I want despite the horrendous results I got.






With all the love,

Universal Studios Singapore II


Love this picture a lot alot. The transfomer love it too. :)



So we're now at Universal Studio's Sci-fi City zone. Basically it's Transfomers-themed, with high-tect looking setting and all.  And here's where the rides began. :D



Rode 4D 'Transformers: The Ride' and it was awesome. 

Story is: You are one of the transformers and you had to battle with the evil transformers around New York (Are the robots called Transformers just like that? Lol I've no idea i never watch the movies). And in the end you succeed! 




Galactica: Humans VS Cyclones

There are two roller coasters comprised into one site: Humans are the red track, and cyclones, the blue. The cool thing about this is that the rides for both tracks starts at the same time every round, and while you're on the ride you can also see the other cart whooshing with you.

My brain always told me that I've became afraid of roller coasters. but my heart proved to me that I'm not! 

Before getting onto the Red ride, I was super super nervous and scared. But after the ride, I was so glad I didn't chicken out, and so pumped up to get on the Blue ride. Sad thing was that after our ride on the red track cousin felt like throwing up. So I accompanied her and passed on the Blue ride.




The Accelerator. Looks hard-core. Thought we'd get dizzy, but we didn't.





Think it's a ride for kids. :)



 A shot with dunno-what-the-heck-is-that. :)




After that we moved on to Acient Eygypt. :) 

Mummy ride in this zone was awesome too! Cousin was indecisive about getting onto the ride but luckily I managed to convince her, and gladly, she didn't regret riding it.



Look at his abs!



Look at her abs!! But she doesn't talk and she looked fierce. :(






Then we went on an adventure ride (forgot what it's called).

Despite the super-fake beetles lol, the hippo and crocs all looked so realistic! Too bad they don't splash water, or jump up from the pond to scare the tourists, else it would be thousand times more awesome. :D






Jurassic Park was bits disappointing for us because one of the rides closed down for the moment. :C



Waterworks. We caught the show at 4.30pm, and it was definitely the high-light of my day! There were water bikes, fire, guns and explosions. And lots of water!




Views to our right and left. We sat in the second row exactly at the very middle, aka the Wet Zone. 

We were conflicting whether or not we should sit there cuz we haven't any umbrellas or raincoats, and we didn't bring extra clothes. In the end, we acquired the courage to do so. In short, we had to watch the people sitting on our left and right being splashed with water over and over again and at the end of the show, we're both still dry. ==


To be continued! :)




With all the love,
