The Day The World Stood Still...

On the 25th at 7pm, Tam and I went "dating"... It was her birthday and my girl treated both of us to this movie. A Super Wednesday in TGV, the ticket only cost RM7 compared to RM11 normally..or was it RM12?

Upon reaching the cinema, we both realized we didn't bring our cardigans, cham.... she and I are so "young" that we cannot tahan cold already. Fortunately she managed to rummage through her car boot and got a big weathershield... lol.. big enough to cover both of us like a blanket.. lol.. I should take a pic of that "lifesaver!" It saved us from our toilet trips at least... *too cold cannot tahan not going to pee, right?*

Ok, enough of that crap... my intention is to write on this movie... Tam kept grumbling throughout the movie, said it was too "farce" , how could the hero and family not die when all the others did when they were escaping the wrath of the earthquake..

Well, I shut her up ... I said the main motive of this movie is not to show the hero-s or what, it is to make known that when the end of the world really comes, no one can escape the wrath... The tsunami-s ended it all... there won't be a big ship to carry us away nor some spaceship to fly us over to the moon.. all will vanished... While it is frightening to see all these happen, at the same time, it is an eye opener for us.

Why did I blog about it today? Cos I dreamt of it last night, I was driving my car escaping the tsunami that is coming from the coastal area, Lumut... I was driving at a high speed..... aimlessly... and suddenly... suddenly......



  1. HAHHAAHAHHAAHA aiyooo u r like a kid watch horror movie then dream about it hahahaha

  2. You must have thought that you there at the end time :p Lucky the phone rang..Claire, it is frightening to be there at the end times :(

  3. Yup, a visit to the cinema is like a trip to cold storage. They sld start a mini Paparich kiosk at the F&B area to warm us with hot coffee.

    Lumut? What an unglamourous place to spend your last minutes on earth! lolz

  4. haha...lumut? means on the way to utp lo??!! mebe can fetch me along if it happens, i also wan to escape. hahaha...

  5. I have not seen the movie and I do not intend to. So expensive...and I don;t know why the cineplexes are SO cold - like a mortuary! LOL!!! I love the theme song from the movie though. Adam Lambert rawks!!!

  6. manglish: maybe i think too much.. a child in me? possible. :)

    Elin: yes, frightening but got to face it too one day, eh..

    gratitude: hahaa..cold storage, yeah, something like that.. must take cardigan, back to kids' days..

    gabriel: i was driving from it, not to lumut.. i think u wont wait for me lo.. u sure escape to ipoh already ...

  7. stp: adam sings the theme song? oh ,i dont know that... i also nv observe the song though..hahaha.. wanted to get out from the cinema fast cos ggrrrrrrr.... cold.. eh, the ticket on wed cost 7rm .. so wait for wed.. or tuesday for ladies.. hehehe..

  9. Well Claire, at least you got the tickets. The tickets were sold out last week, couldn't watch with my bf.

    Will try this week. BTW, thanks for adding me up.

  10. LV: not reading? hahaa... i didnt write anything much and like u, i dont like to read bout the story line as well..hehee..

    sexyjessie: yes, my girl got the tickets for me 2 days beforehand.. otherwise sure cannot get..

  14. mandy: wah...your ticket lagi cheaper.. yeah, it is a so so movie, maybe we expect too much from it since everyone said it was so goody good..

    chrisau: hahaa..u are like a small child.. close yr eyes if scary...

    cheryl: normally i dont go for movies too, only watch when there is a good feedback..

  15. Oh ya 2012 movie. Some people say this is what will happen to the world in 2012. Scary....

  16. hahahhaha...Claire you're so cute la!

    So did you said "thanks" to the person that wake u up?

  17. This movie isn't funny at all except that part when the girl gave her boyfriend the finger point*f$#@*! hahaha.... My mind was just wandering around, can't get to sleep after watching that movie! Extremely scary... I believe this will be happening in one day, not sure when! Global warming is getting worst and no one seems bother much about it. The water surface at Northpole not frozen even it's already winter. Polar bears has to eat their own cub becoz of hunger. Really really sad huh! According to Buddha, their books were written more or less the same as Quran. The sign - "When there are more & more people becoming gay/les and when more & more unbeatable diseases suddenly strike human, that's mean the end of the world is near!!!" =(

  18. sjb: i love thrilling movies.. anytime.. but cannot sit on roller coaster one.. :)

    AnnieQ: hehe...i think it was an sms, i remember wrongly.. the sound of my sms is the ringing tone.. drrrinngggg....

    My little space: as the bible is written, wars or sickness might be everywhere but doesnt mean the end is near.. it will come when we least expect it to be.. lets just wait and see and pray..and hope... and believe in God..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
