Waah it snowed in London! More like a light snow shower. No chance of building a snowman here. Still, I was pretty excited to see the snow shower because people said it seldom snowed here. Heheh I guess if you've been living in a tropical country your whole life, you'd be excited too. Ah well, it was only for a short while. Macam hujan renyai-renyai je.Tak sempat tangkap gambar pon.. The weather's been pretty cold lately, so I guess it's just natural for it to snow.

Movie update: I watched Boogeyman and White Noise. Both are OK I think. Almost typical horror movies. Boogeyman's a bit hard to relate to, because I've never imagined a monster in my closet or under my bed. I'm pretty sure it's true for most of you too kan? The story's so-so, relying on sound effects to scare you out of your seat. [Now, if it was Qis who was watching this, I think she would scream..] Hm White Noise..go read what Nieze had to say. I'm just too lazy to type. Oh and I watched Phantom of the Opera too. Prefer the theater version to the movie. Yat & Baby would understand. Hahah..

Urgh. Horrible British weather. Here I thought winter was coming to an end with the sun shining brightly outside my window. But once I stepped out of the front door,'s so cold! And then there's the strong wind blowing. Try walking across the Thames with an icy cold wind blowing. It's sure an adventure on its own. If you're lucky, the wind will push you forward, but more often than not, you'll either be blown sideways or backwards. Hmm..I pity the people in Southampton. They said the winds there are more terrible.

I did another one of those tests that people always posted on friendster. This time it's about which tarot cards represents you best. Ala..the cards which people use to tell fortunes, with weird pictures on it. Not the one where you play solitaire, bluff or..aiseh forgot the game that Roggy loved to play with Jid during OBS. I could still remember their screams when playing. Hahah..Ok back to the tarot cards..which one do you think I get? I saw other people obtaining the star, sun, moon and even the fool, but I totally didn't expect to get....DEATH! Hmm makes me wonder wheter I've got some kind of twisted personality? Do you think so?

AArggh got abstract works to hand in tomorrow. Help!!

Happy New Year

Wishing all my muslim and chinese friends a happy new year. It's not often these two new years coincide I guess.
It would be the year 1426 according to Hijirian Calendar. The year was calculated from when the prophet Muhammad S.A.W migrated (perform a hijrah) from Mecca to Madinah. Now I think people no longer perform a hijrah to another place, but instead they performed hijrah in a sense that they move towards becoming a better person. Well, I'm not that good in all these religious stuff, so I won't be babbling too much. Just enjoy the new year, reflect back on all that's done last year and hope this new year brings out a better person in each one of us.

Love and War..

Another movie update? I know what you must be thinking. This gal has nothing to do except watch movies all day?'s true. I reserve my weekend for watching movies.

So I finally watched Closer. Not a bad movie. Like what someone said(can't remember who), it depicts to what extend people would act in the name of love. I can't understand why Anna decided to marry Larry when she was still seeing Dan at the same time? And then she decided to leave Larry for Dan, but revoked her decision a few months later and went back to Larry. Hmm what a fickle minded person she is. Why oh why can't she just pick one man? Very indecisive indeed. Watching this film gave me an unsettling feeling. Do we really act like that with our loved ones? Do we test them just to find out how much they loved us? And would telling the truth all the time be good for us? Take Jude Law's character, Dan, for example. He knew Alice slept with Larry, and when he forced her to tell the truth, she then dumped him. The same thing actually occured when Anna told him the truth that she slept with Larry one last time. She dumped him and went back to Larry. So does this mean it's better to keep quiet about some things as long as the person we love are happy because they don't know it? Would telling the truth brings back the guilt that we've forced down up to the surface of our feelings? I guess it could..Hmm..

Oh well, on to other things I've watched. There's the new episode of CSI, then a new siries about a psychic helping solve crimes, Medium, and a Japanese sci-fi flick, Casshern. I watched it out of curiosity. This is another anti-war movie. Some scenes really stick in your mind. Like the scene where the main character had to shoot a woman and her baby on behalf of another soldier because if not, his superior would shoot his colleague. And there was the scene where a soldier picked up a baby from his mother, only to find his action had unplugged the pin of a grenade. The dead mother was willing to sacrifice her child for revenge? or is it because she taught no one would be kind enough to look after her child, and would rather have the baby dying instantly instead of starving to death?

Why did I call this a sci-fi movie? It's because it was set in an alternate reality, where earth was terribly polluted and torn by war. And the main character was a dead guy who came back to life when his father soaked him up in some neo-cell solutions. The cheesy clothes made me laugh but some scenes are shot beautifully, you'd forget about the clothes. I mean, an armor that looks like a Power Rangers outfit? And a bad guy with a billowing red cape and white hair to boot? Hahah..Watch this movie for the message, and some astounding scenes of atrocities of war. Oh not forgetting, a lot of crazy dying scenes.
