In Summer 2013, get ready for more minion madness in Despicable Me 2. Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy animated adventure featuring the return of Gru (Steve Carell), the girls, the unpredictably hilarious minions...and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.


Watched Despicable Me 2 with church mates yesterday night! As compared to Despicable Me, I thought that Despicable Me 2 plot was rather weak. It focused more on the cute and funny element of the minions instead. 

Initially, it was good but as you continued on watching, you get slightly bored about the funny scenes because viewers expected the plot to reach to another level but it did not. Nevertheless, I got a good laugh in the cinema! 

One good show for the young one out there!

In White House Down, Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation's government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.


Watched White House Down with Gary yesterday evening! This trailer caught my attention on television and it is the genre that I liked! 

The story started well with brief introduction and history about the white house. The story goes on from there with many fantastic shooting and fighting scenes. One great thing was that, you get to see different scenes of it! While watching, it seems that you are playing some virtual game with your pals with the shooting and fighting!

The plot was rather predictable initially but towards to end, you realised each has their own motive of bringing the white house down. The story flow well and injected some humor to make this serious film, a rather light-hearted one too! It touches on the importance of kinship, integrity and righteousness as well. 

Channing Tatum acted very well! Bravo! One great film if you enjoy watching action-humor film!

Previewed 孫協志 Tony Sun latest album - Phoenix 不死鳥. I think Tony Sun did well for this album. He was previously a leader in a Taiwanese pop band - 5566. During those days, I enjoyed most of the song from this group! After few years, am glad that He came out his own album! He was one of the member which I thought was rather talented. 

The recommended track from me will be: 學習愛情, 要了我的命, 多久 and 有你在身邊! If you miss listening to his music than go grab his album!

Signing off with his hit song~

Few months back decided to try out the jar-cake from grinaffair. Been hearing about it it and also seen TV host introducing it in programs.

Bought the strawberry custard, honey lavender and banoffee! Each cost $5.50. All tasted reasonably good with the richness of mousse which blends well with the cake.

The recommended one from me will be: Banoffee! I like how the banana slices goes along with the coffee cake, baked crust and pecans! It tasted just right, not too sweet for my taste bud!

The place is rather small so I think it is advisable to take-away instead to dine-in there.

Eventually Yoko Moriguchi suspects some of her own students to have been responsible for her daughter's death. An elaborate plan for revenge then ensues, including forcing students to drink HIV tainted milk.


Watched Confessions 告白 Kokuhaku online yesterday night. This film was shown in year 2010, I know it is a rather old show. Decided to catch it because I heard good reviews on this thriller film.

The show started well with a brief introduction of the story. Then, as the story goes on, it reveals the entire truth. In the beginning, it was rather draggy but towards the end, there was a twist which bring the show to another level. I think this is one of the good suspense thriller that I watched. 

A good story flow with a unexpected ending! If you are into suspense thriller film like me, you will like this show!

I was utterly shocked to see news on the split between Wong li lin and Allan Wu. It was rather unexpected for me. No one knows the reason but only both themselves. However, it is said to be a mutual decision. 

Instead of jumping into any conclusion, I guessed the only thing to do now is to give them space. Hopefully, they made a right decision and work through ways not to hurt their children. 

Let us support and respect their decision.

Michelle Chia and Shaun Chen was another couple who divorced 2 years back.

Went Windowsill Pies for dessert with church mates after dinner few months back! I like the concept because of the pretty and cute decoration! 

Decided to order their pies to share and try! Thus, these are what we ordered: Grasshopper Pie, Banana Almond Brittle Pie, Strawberry Lemon Tart and Pecan Pie!

The recommended ones from me will be: Grasshopper Pie & Banana Almond Brittle Pie! Think these two pies left deeper impression to me. Everything jus blends well together and each bite tasted good! 

Grasshopper Pie:
It has a yummy chocolate flourless cake base topped with a crazy fresh mint cream. Crowning it are shards of dark chocolate and clusters of salty chocolate cookies.

Banana Almond Brittle Pie:
Sweet bananas, salty caramel and crunchy nuts come together in an explosion of flavour!

However, if you prefer a stronger and flavorful taste, I will recommend you to go for Strawberry Lemon Tart and Pecan Pie!

Each has its own unique taste! If you are nearby the area, why not drop-by for some yummy pies! And yup, they do served tea and coffee too. Tea-break soon?

Met up with my dearest 4-ourz on Tuesday evening! Decided to have Jollibee for dinner! Did not know that the queue system is different from other fast food restaurants. Instead of choping a seats, we have to queue and order first. I guessed because this is the only outlet thus the huge number of crowd! 

We are rather amazed with the packaging. The rice was wrapped like a burger and the sauce was contained in a similar concept: whipped potato in other fast food restaurant. The large fries look like a regular size, maybe they could have a bigger package for that. 

Requested for thigh meat and a drum-stick but did not manage to have it due to the crowd I guessed. From I saw it when ordering, the meal I ordered was already prepared and comes with drum-stick and breast meat.

The fried chicken tasted reasonably good though it was not marinated evenly. The breast meat I got was good! It was well-marinated and the meat looks fresh with tender meat. However, the drum-stick was not well-marinated though it still tasted okay. The sauce blends well with the chicken and rice, not too flavorful for me.

Due to the huge number of crowds, I think it is better to dine there during non-peak hours!

A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.


Went for Man Of Steel 3D premiere screening with Jiexun yesterday evening at The Cathay. Jiexun happened to have the ticket and invited me along. 

The story started quite draggy in the beginning with the introduction. As the it goes on, it caught the viewers attention. The story flows well even with the flash back scenes; I could understand easily and make sense of it. Though there are not many action scenes but the few one you see will 'wow' you!! Good visuals! Besides that, it touches on kinship too.

As a whole, I feel that this film did well with the story-line with a good introduction and its ending. A movie for the old and young!

Previewed 李玟 Coco Lee latest album - 盛开. I think she did reasonably good for this album. She caught my attention when she started singing english song. I think she did very well for it! She has her own personality which stands out among the crowd. I particularly like her sentimental song and this time she did it well again!

The recommended track from me will be: Stuck On U 偷心贼, 爱的副作用, 想念你的夜 and 能不能! If you miss her distinctive voice than go grab her album! 

Signing off with her hit song~

Watched Jurassic Park with Zhen wei in IMAX 3D last Thursday. Did not come across my mind th catch this show since I have seen it when I was young. Since Zhen wei jio me, I then decided to catch this once again in 3D because I remembered this was a pretty good film.

As compared watching this film previously, I feel that I could understand the entire show better now, partly because I was pretty young then. Obviously, with IMAX 3D it enhanced the thrill factor in most scenes! Oh ya! Am pretty impressed by Ariana Clarice Richards acting here! Her facial expression in each scene really wowed me.

It refreshed my memory and at the same time get me ready for Jurassic Park 4!

This film relive my childhood all over again! Go catch it to have a brand new experience with IMAX 3D!!

Went Grandma's kitchen with family recently. We went to the outlet at Nex. The ambiance was cosy and nice. The service was good, very prompt and polite. The food all tasted reasonably good! The dishes are pretty costly but with the yummy food served; I think it's worth the price! 

I would highly recommend this restaurant because of the good food! However, if you are on budget, I guessed you have to head somewhere else!

This fried spring onion beef with rice from Wisma Wah Eng Beef House tasted yummy! The store is situated in Food Junction at Nex. 

The well marinated beef is tender and chewy! The gravy is thick and flavorful which goes perfectly well with the meat and the bowl of rice. The portion is decent which comes with some vegetable.

Drop-by to try if you are around the area!
