Evening Star

If you looked at the sky yesterday evening northwest to be exact, you would have notice a really bright star. Im sure some of you know that its not a star but a planet. It is the planet Venus is making it’s was across our skies this month, an evening star shining ever so brightly. So look up and make a wish then wonder what shall I eat tonite?… Well that’s what I was thinking yesterday at least… Setting the tripod would have made a better picture but I just rested in on the car….. not a good idea… picture looks alittle fuzzy.

Last Friday Rose and I joined some of my colleagues and bloggers to a farewell Karaoke session. It was for one of my colleagues who was leaving for greener pastures that day. We made our way to Neway in One U, and had a ball of a time. The only thing I did not like was having Chivas and Green Tea as a mixture. I am sorry guys I don’t know why you guys like it but I think that’s the worst concoction I have ever tasted. Dono, Rose and I had dinner in Chilis that nite… the food is still good but the Draft Beer tasted funny.

Rose and I left early cos she works on Saturday…slept about 3am … I don’t know what it is but I guess I am not used to it already… For the rest of the week I was just trying to recover from Friday nite….gone are the days where I can go for 3 days with just a few minutes sleep lah… sigh…so sad wan…

Saturday was pretty much clean that Aquarium Day. I cleaned my tank, my mum’s tank and my mother-in-laws tank… and the weekend was pretty much Channel 78 Discovery Real Time…. It a new channel on Astro and it seems to be my favourite channel right now… I watch it every chance I get… keke (I wonder why).

Sunday after mass I was craving for McD’s Big Breakfast so me and rose when by the house to pick up my something while she went over to her brothers house for a bit. When I came back to my idling car I realized that I had locked the door with the key inside… Not to worry I have a spare key….. and then in horror I groped when I found that the spare key was in the car too….. tried for what seemed like hours then my brother-in-law helped by getting a mechanic from the nearby shop (yes this guy was actually open) to try and break into the car….. 20 minutes later and 20 ringgit poorer I was driving around again. Wife had ordered for the Big Breakfast to be delivered to the house but by the time we ate it was like 11:30 or something… I was really grumpy after that.

These past few weeks I managed to watch a few movies;

FOUR BROTHERS
Watched this movie in PD. Its like a Tamil movie meets Hollywood kinda’ movie… it was enjoyable without being too predictable… a few unnecessary scenes here and there..But an overall good lazy afternoon DVD movie. (6/10)

.
SPIDERMAN 3
Crap which I won’t even bother talking about it except maybe VENOM was cool but such a wasted character. Would have given a 3 but I love that actor that played Peter’s boss what’s his name…. Jonah Jameson (4/10)


HAPPY FEET
I probably would have killed myself if I went to the cinema to watch this movie but likely I watched on DVD… yes that little penguin tap dancing on ice was really cute… and Robin Williams just stole the show with a small role as Ramon. Oh… and the music is pretty good… but other then that ‘yawn’ (5/10)

MOMENTO
Watched this about a month ago but thought I would review it today…. Its about a guy who has short term memory after an accident. He cant remember things after a few hours and takes and keeps Polaroid pictures to remember things. This is quite a clever movie and its well made. (7/10)

MUSIC & LYRICS
Ok… yes I will admit that I watch girlie soppy love movies… I have no choice… I am married!!.. but some are nice like ‘For Love of The Game’, ‘Love Actually’, ‘Notting Hill’, ‘Four Weddings and A Funeral’… is it a coincidence that 3 out of 4 movies mentioned above stars Hugh Grant?... thank god its not… it just that Rose is a huge Hugh Grant fan.. I have no idea why… I think he looks like a buffoon but unfortunately I must say his latest outing is quite good. Drew Barrymore is such a darling and the story is witty with a hint of British humor… … the opening song to the movie is still stuck in my head..’Pop! goes my heart’. (7/10)

The next two movies has got to be the weirdest movies I have ever watched… really not suitable for cinema… not only will you be trying to kill yourself, you’d be doing it with a spoon …

MIRRORMASK
An interesting movie I watch on Astro…. It was interesting enough for me to not turn to channel 78… Just kept watching to see will happen next. It was made by the Jim Henson Production Company. I don’t know if you are familiar with Jim Henson who is the creator of the Jim Henson Creature Shop who is responsible for giving us the puppets of Sesame Street, The Muppets and even the famous Jedi Master Yoda and many good puppets and animatronics used in movies. The best movie from the Creature Shop is the infamous movie Labyrinth, starring David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly. It would be unfair of me to compare because Mirrormask is a pale reflection which one has to have an open minded imagination to swallow. (4/10)

THE FOUNTAIN
Talk about an open minded imagination. The fountain is a movie about 3 stories spanned through a millennium. It felt very much like an experimental film…..or a really good attempt by a film student, what with its unconventional camera angles and colour contrast and lack of a full script… there where so many scenes void of conversation, one gesture after another… But story wise it was really interesting… If you have the stomach for it …by all means go for it….. (5/10)

Idol updates: So what was your perception of this weeks American Idol….. I actually know the second song that Blake sang…… I actually love BeeGees.. except for their birdie stuck in the zipper singing. Barry Gibg is a superb song writer and composer. The show was so boring….. the only thing I can say about Wednesdays show was Jordin Sparks looked good… love the hair and love her makeup…

I like looking out for the evening star as well. Its the brightest 'star' closest to the moon. Speaking of stars, I have a feeling its going to be a Jordin-Melinda finale.

It better be...cos blake does not belong in the final three...

Fiona-Jane said...

Chivas and Green Tea is quite nice. But why spoil the taste. Whiskey water is the way to go.

Was it Chillis in One Utama? The cups stink of puke!

Prianna said...

Ouch on the locking yourself out.. But not too sympathetic on the greasy mcD's breakfast!

:)

Pixelated Mo said...

Fiona: puke!!eeeeeeee... yes it was chillis in One Utama..
I guess you must like Green Tea to enjoy it as a mixture... i dont like green tea.. :)

Prianna:I love what they call sausage... but funny that they call it that since its a patte.. hey if you think about it the amount of calories nasi lemak has... McDs seems like a diet...
