I watched these movies back to back last Sunday. Okay let us start with Epic Movie. The storyline just okay but the combination of characters in Narnia + Charlie & the Chocolates Factory + Pirate of Caribbean + Borat + Snake on Plane makes it damn funny.
Full of crap but still funny!
Second movie was Things We Lost in The Fire. Well, the storyline quite confusing. Sometimes it try to show event in the past & sometimes the present. Luckily, I've seen the trailers before & its easier for me to understand the story. MyRating:
The final movie was Gone Baby Gone which directed by Ben Affleck & the lead actor is his own brother Casey Affleck. The story reminded me of the the missing girl Sharlinie which already missing about 14 days now. Hopefully she is still with us & alive coz what I've learn in that movie 1-3 days is the critical days. The rest, we can only hope & pray. I pray to Allah that Sharlinie will be found & reunited with her family. Aminn.. myRating:
I have 2 choices to pick for a movie last Saturday (19 Jan) either Sweeney Todd or Cloverfield. I chose Cloverfield & what a TERRIBLE mistake! There were only 3 words to describe it "THE MOVIE SUCK!!" and it sucked BIG TIME! My hubby & I wasted rm20 to be tormented when watching this movie. From the beginning until the end, it used hand held camera like the one used in Blair Witch Project. At one point I just stared at the wall coz I felt my head spinning & I felt like puking. There also like a bunch of people left the cinema after it was only started for 30 mins. The movement of the camera is so fast, up & down until I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Scene where people screaming & running and I couldn't see any shit what they are afraid of. Up after 1 hour later then we saw the whole thing. It was a monster, face like skinned out monkey with a lot of hand and long tail & fish gills. The ending was so stupid & today I read somewhere that after the movie ended & they it was like 12 mins ending credit, you could hear a garbled audio track at the very last part of the credits. It sounds like Rob is still recording on the camera. However, the guys at Unfiction have played the last part of the audio clip backwards to reveal this. At the very end you'll hear: "It's still alive!". Who knows. It could be Cloverfield 2 and I just don't care coz I'm really pissed off. What a stupid movie!!

About Earth Hour 2007 was a Sydney event. Earth Hour 2008 is a global movement.
Objective Inspire people to take action on climate change
Where it all began? On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour. This massive collective effort reduced Sydney’s energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for one hour.
With Sydney icons like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House turning their lights off, and unique events such as weddings by candlelight, the world took notice. Inspired by the collective effort of millions of Sydneysiders, many major global movement.
Way to do it Turning off your lights for one hour at 8pm on 29 March 2008.
The RIGHT way to do it Turning the lights off for Earth Hour is a great first step, but if you really want to see a difference, then make Earth Hour part of your everyday life.
Simple things like turning off appliances while not in use and switching your light globes to energy efficient bulbs, will all help us reach our goal of reducing our annual emissions by 5%. Even something as simple as turning out lights when you’re not in a room and switching to cleaner sources of electricity like “green power”, make a big difference.
Implement this as a way of life
At home You don’t have to live in total darkness every day to make a difference. Just follow these five quick and easy tips.
* Switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs to save money and reduce emissions. Lighting accounts for around 5% of household greenhouse gas emissions, and compact fluros use 75% less energy than an equivalent incandescent bulb. Although the bulbs cost more up-front, you will actually save money through the energy saved and extended life of the bulb. * Turn appliances off while not in use. Unplug any appliances like mobile phone chargers, TVs, microwaves, MP3 players, which are not being used and are on standby. In Australia, appliances on standby consume up to 10% of your electricity bill. * Turn off anything that doesn’t need to be on. A good rule is to turn off anything not being used. When you leave a room or leave the house, turn off your lights or appliances like the TV or computer. * Switch to green power. This is one of the best ways you can make a difference. Contact your electricity provider today and switch to green power, a cleaner, more renewable form of energy that does not contribute to global warming. If all Australians switched to green power today, Australia’s total greenhouse pollution would be cut by 30% in one year. That’s the equivalent of more than 40 million cars! * Use less hot water. This is not only a good water saving tip, it saves electricity too. Spend one minute less in the shower.
At work As well as the very simple things you can do in the office, like printing double-sided and using recycled paper, there are many other ways to help your workplace reduce its carbon footprint.
* Get off standby. Speak to your office manager about turning off any equipment at work that is not being used, including computer screens, photocopiers and printers, particularly when you leave at night. * Turn off lights at the end of the working day. Before you leave your place of work remember to turn off any lights in your workspace and your computer if you use one at work. Remember to unplug your mobile phone or laptop charger when it’s not in use. Speak to your office manager about installing motion-sensor lighting after 5pm when most people have gone home. * Find out what’s happening in your workplace. Ask about your company’s emissions reduction policies and find out what’s already happening. Look for ways to reduce energy use in your workplace and encourage improvements. If employers know their employees are keen to make their workplaces environmentally friendly, they’ll be even more inclined to take action. * Encourage your organisation to have measurable emissions reduction targets. Many Australian businesses are committing to emissions targets and have plans to be carbon neutral by a certain date. Switching to green power, reducing and offsetting energy use and travel, and incorporating this into all areas of the business are critical to this process. Does your company have a plan?

Last week on 11 January we started travel back to my hubby's hometown in Kepala Batas, Penang. As usual my hubby drove all the way back. I did offering my help to drive but still I came across answers like "TAK PER LAH, ABG BOLEH DRIVE LAGI". Quite annoyed sometimes coz every time I tried to spread my generosity by offering my help and always the answer is no, thank you. So as classy as a princess, I just lay back and rest all the way while my charming prince will be the knight of shining amour and save me from trouble. Well, actually that's far from what really happen. Did I slept? No way! I have to make sure my hubby stay awake & focus on the road. So I start commenting his driving style like "Slow down sikit", "Jangan rapat sangat ngan kereta depan", "Laju la sikit, naper la slow sangat nie", "Cepat la overtake lori tu" or "Careful sikit, speed trap nanti". Hehehe.. that makes my hubby goes nut, I think. Most probably that's why he ask me to relax & take a nap every time we started a journey. So when I heard a loud sigh like "Hmmm.." or "arrr", I just keep my mouth shut & give him some space. We did make a few stop at R&R & the last stop at hentian sebelah bukit gantang, we parked our car & we just dozed off. Not until 1:30 am we started our journey back & arrived around 2:00 am.
The next day, I wake up as the sun shine so bright & I can't sleep anymore. Just after I woke up my in law greet me & told me she prepared some laksa for us & she need to go out that instance to Teluk Air Tawar. So we decided to go out & buy lunch. So we went to Kepala Batas & bought famous roasted chicken & ikan bakar. We drop by Kedai Makan Shahul Hamid to have the tasty & famous cucur udang! So yummy! The cucur udang will still edible even though you leave it overnight. Still you can have the same taste & soft cucur udang. I'm really impress. Wonder what's their secret recipe. Hmmm.. but anyway later that evening we went to Penang (the Island). Our objective that day is to survey the hotel & direction for common places like Penang Hill, Gurney Drive, Padang Kota, Komtar, Batu Ferenghi etc. So we started from point A, the airport! Well, even though my hubby is from Penang but his entire life is not based in Penang so his navigation in Penang is quite so-so. That's why we decide to do pre trip before the real trip with my parents & my sister to Penang in 1-3 February 2008. Back to the story, so we started from airport, my hubby went to the tourism counter & collect everything he can about Penang, the map, the brochure & ask the guy over there the direction to the hotel. Then we started and did find the hotel, Penang hill and all the places that we plan to visit next month. We managed to drop by to Gurney Plaza & I bought my ummi digital camera. It's Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS70. Just a basic camera and really convenience for my ummi coz she wants something that is not so high edge and easy to use. I drawn to the price coz for rm499 and I got digital camera with 7.3 Megapixel occupied with Mega OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer), 2Gb SD card, mini tripod, battery, rechargeable battery with charger and camera casing. The full package with the price I couldn't resist. We decided to hop on Ferry for a ride home.
The next day (Sunday), we pay a visit to my Aunty's house in Taman Alma, Bukit Mertajam. My cousin Intan is there. She's on her maternity leave. Johan Arif so cute & chubby. Hmmm.. geram to pinch his cheek. So tembam! Then around 11pm we started our journey back to KL. Also not sleeping all the way. Arriving home at around 4 am. So tiring & exhausting. Need to go work tomorrow but no worry, no boss around so can sleep in the office (if I want to but I wont do it). Haha..
Some pics capture using Lumix DMC-LS70 as below (quite nice):
