Real Steel Review

Awesomness!!!  went to watch this movie last tuesday night with my sisters and cousins.. n it's one of the best.. Real Steel is basically bout robot fighting starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo taking the role as Charlie Keaton and Max Keaton respectively..

apparently human boxing has become irrelavant as spectators want more action and entertainment n robots gave them the option of fighting till the end (i.e. till the death). The two main characters stumbled into a sparring Generation 2 robot named Atom and as a former boxer himself, Charlie trained Atom to be a fighting robot.. i like how the movie unfolds n the story doesn't seem to slow down.. it keeps the energy going, with Max providing the most entertaining moment.. the graphics of the robots are A-mazing and the fights seems so real with the sound effects and all..

another ups for this movie is that it doesn't have that sappy romantic storyline most movies seems to have... even the scenes about the father and son relationship was kept to a minimum, with just enough human touch.. cuz frankly speaking, if i wanted drama, i would go watch a dramatic movie and not Real Steal... hope i didn't give too much away but this is definitely a must-see movie.. i rate it 9/10 n would definitely watch it again.. after watching the movie, mohsin said he felt like punching someone hahaha and it's true.. the movie gives u so much energy, u can feel it even after it ends... so go watch it now...

James Franco

it's like i'm in high school all over again here,
all those years of growing up seemed to just disappear,
i'm sitting in this corner, trying to hold back my tears,
waiting for you to come save me, my dear.

he was in my mind when i thought of this, i know it's random...

I'm Lost For Words

updates: it was reported that the woman pulling the kid to the side went and searched for help after doing so... kudos to u then.. appologies for not knowing so earlier... read a report from CNN here..

it's all over the Internet and it's heartbreaking.. it's devastating.. it's shocking.. it gets u sad and so angry... a 3 year old child was run over by a van.. but not your typical hit and run case cuz the people walking by just ignored her..  how could u walk-by, see a child laying on the ground helplessly, and just walk a way?? how can u fucking walk away from that?? it's inhuman!! and she was still freaking moving!! clearly she's alive and should be saved immediately.. pulling her to the side? what good does it do? a simple phone call would do.. even an anonymous one.. at least get her some help.. *sob sob*  Watched it with my lil sister yesterday..  it's very disturbing to know such people exist in this world.. didn't catch it on news, but papa said she survived but is in very critical condition.. i hope she lives a healthy and happy life.. i noe it's doubted, but i hope she won't grow up and see that video as she'll be traumatic enough surviving it.. to know that there was at least 5 people who walked on by and did nothing, it's just not right..

what have we become?

The Little Things

I've always been a sucker for little things.. i tend to appreciate them more.. to me, sometimes small gesture could go along way n have a greater impact on you.. i guess i'll look for that in a relationship.. people who appreciates little things..

up to now, i think the sweetest thing my whole family has done for me was during one of my birthday.. n i've had massive birthdays before, dated way back in London when i had my party in McDonald's.. i remember having Laura as my birthday gift (that's a dolls' name to those who don't noe hehehe) i've had other moderate celebrations with friends.. n not forgetting those usual birthdays when nothing seems to be a big deal n everything in life seems to go on normally..
but to this day, i think there's one that'll stick on my mind, for as long as i will remember (pretty sure i've mentioned this previously) it was the day we decided to have a simple lunch at Dave's Deli OU.. normal place to eat n nothing special about it.. but that day, we all wore purple.. my dad had his purple shirt on, my mum wore her purple baju kurung, n my 2 sisters were wearing purple tops.. Izad even went inside the room and asked me to change.. so there we were, in Dave's Deli.. all in purple..
why purple? cuz it's my favourite colour  =D  i love my family..

RIP Jack Marshall

*sob sob* first heard about him when i started following Jack Wilshere's twitter.. Jack was diagnosed with a brain tumour at such a tender age and passed away this morning at just 6 years old.. it's such a sad thing to know that there's kids out there dying, and so young too..

Jack Wilshere keeps tweeting pics of them together which is so touching.. an article i read recently made me cry.. will it be a crime posting it here rather than linking it? my blog, my call  =b


Jack Wilshere knows some things ARE a matter of life and death. That’s why he had to help young Jack Marshall

MAYBE it is because he has encountered tragedy in his life before that Jack Wilshere has done what he has done for little Jack Marshall and his family. Maybe it is because Wilshere’s uncle, a young man who was more like a brother to him, was killed in a car crash at just 16.

“I had just played my first game for England Schoolboys and I was so happy and so thrilled,” Wilshere says. “Then we got the news. My uncle was a passenger in a car that went out of control. It was the worst thing that has ever happened to me.”

Or perhaps it’s because the Arsenal midfielder, the brightest young talent in English football, has known since the start of the year that he was to become a father himself. Perhaps it’s because since his son, Archie, was born a fortnight ago, he has understood even more keenly just how precious is the gift of life.

“When we got Archie,” Wilshere says, “it made me realise even more what Jack’s family are going through. “Everyone hopes that what has happened to Jack will never happen to their kid. “All I wanted was for Archie to be healthy when he was born but I still worry about him all the time, anyway. “We check him over and over again at night. What’s happened to Jack is every parent’s worst nightmare.”

What happened to Jack Marshall, a beautiful, brave, loving child who has touched many, many people with his courage and his cheerfulness, was a brain tumour. A tumour that transformed him from a carefree little boy obsessed with football in general and Manchester United in particular to a six-year-old kid clinging desperately to life.

What happened to him is that after surviving an operation to remove the primary tumour, he learned to walk again by tottering after a football sent by Sir Alex Ferguson. What happened to him is that the brain tumour, a form of cancer which kills more kids in the UK than any other variation of the disease, began growing and spreading again.

And six months ago, the hospital sent him back to his home in Scunthorpe and told his parents, Tracey and Craig, and his elder brother Josh, 12, that Jack would be dead within days. So while Tracey and Craig have been trapped in a living hell, Jack has defied the doctors’ predictions by fighting on and on. And his parents have devoted every moment to caring for him, trying to make every day special for him, while they watch him fade.

To add to their anguish and for reasons only the kids involved could explain, some local boys have begun to bully Josh since his brother became ill. A couple of months ago, he was beaten up in the local park while he was playing football.

Many people in sport have been kind. Rio Ferdinand helped to arrange a visit for Jack and his family to the Manchester United training ground. Wayne Rooney has worn a Jack Marshall wristband to raise awareness of the ­prevalence of brain tumours and encourage their early detection. And Serena Williams ­organised tickets for Jack and his family to meet her at Wimbledon in the summer and watch her play.

Wilshere, though, has been a constant. He might be 19 but he has showed the kind of caring that most people only discover later in life. I have visited Jack Marshall and sat at his bedside and it is not comfortable seeing a child enduring such suffering. It is difficult emotionally, particularly if you have never been close to that kind of pain and misfortune.

The easy thing, particularly for a teenager with the football world at his feet, would be to turn away, to keep the kid at arm’s length. But Wilshere didn’t do that. He became aware of Jack’s plight through Twitter but he didn’t stop at supportive tweets or expressions of concern.

When Jack Marshall and his family made the journey south to watch the tennis at Wimbledon, Wilshere and his mum, Kerry, met them later in their trip and spent a day with them.

“My mum cried the whole way home,” Wilshere says. “There was something about Jack. It’s obvious, I suppose, but his strength in adversity was inspiring.”

Wilshere kept in touch. Aware that the family desperately needed a break from the strain of their day-to-day struggle, he invited them to watch Arsenal in the pre-season Emirates Cup at the end of July. They went round to Wilshere’s house for a barbecue and met Wilshere’s dad, Andy, too. They joked with Wilshere about the sleepless nights he was about to endure with the arrival of his baby.

Their own sleepless nights are different. They get up with their boy in the early hours, too, to give him medicine that keeps him alive. His wakefulness is limited now. Every time Wilshere sees him, he notices Jack is less and less able to talk. Little Jack sleeps most of the day. His world is contracting as Wilshere’s opens up before him.

In mid-August, Wilshere invited Jack and his family down to London again for the Champions League qualifier against Udinese.
And then, when he heard about what was happening to Josh, Wilshere and a friend made the journey up to Scunthorpe and took him to the park to watch him kick a football around. The kid who beat Josh up was there. His mouth dropped open when he saw him hanging out with the man who is tipped by Alan Shearer to be England captain one day.

“Josh is only 12,” Wilshere says. “No kid should have to endure what he has. His brother’s brave and he’s brave, too.”

Tracey Marshall finds it hard to express how much gratitude she feels towards Wilshere.

“Josh will come home and say ‘can I give Jack a ring’,” Tracey says. “If Jack’s busy, he’ll explain to him and say he will call him back. And he always calls back. For me, that is a little bit of light in all this darkness.

“Jack Wilshere has done more for us than he will ever know. When he invited us to London, he gave us the reason and the means to get out and just have a few days away as a family.

“I have told him how much it means to us but I’m not sure if he realises properly. I can’t put into words what he has done.

“Seeing a little child very poorly is not easy. He does not have to do it. He could have looked away. Some people pretend our Jack is just not there but Jack Wilshere has never done that.

“We have seen Josh come in from school really upset and down because of what’s going on. And then Jack has rung and suddenly he has a massive smile on his face. I can’t do that for him but Jack can.”

Wilshere has a tattoo on his wrist as a tribute to the uncle who was like a brother to him. “James Marshall 1990-2006”, it says. “The name’s a strange ­coincidence,” Wilshere says.

Maybe it’s another reason why he has taken the little boy and his family to his heart.

The truth is, the reason doesn’t really matter.

What matters is that an England footballer who didn’t need to help has given comfort to a family who found it where they had least expected.


sad, ain't it? huhuhuh 

this just shows that above all, Arsenal players are way better than MU players hahahaha

Jack Marshall, u will be missed #Jacksarmy

The Worst Thing To Date

*sigh*  it sucks big time when u think u did everything there could be done to make sure u hand in a proper task, but then in fact u overlooked a couple of thing, that just so happen to be super crucial, and end up handing in something with the wrong info...  u'll have two option, to admit ur mistake and be upfront, or leave it as it is n pray that no one will notice.. it doesn't takes a genius to figure out what the right thing to do will be.. but it does takes a lot of guts to do it.. in some cases, i just might have the guts.. but in this case, the extent of the mistake seems too careless to be able to be get up and say it..

even at the start of this phase of life, my dad advised me with something that relates to this.. take whatever they give with the belief that u could do it.. admit ur mistake and take own the responsibility of it  *sigh*  why do u have to be so true  =s   might be the worst thing i've done with this job to date..

Quote of the Week

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.” --- Neil Gaiman

::L-O-V-E:: (lazy post)

if someone ask you, "are you in love?", what would you say? could you be single and still answer yes?

where should one even begin? it's so subjective.. it's simple yet complicated at the same time.. it's everything jumbled up to one.. everything written here would be from my point of view and scattered.. u may not agree with it, but it doesn't matter.. we don't live the same way, raised the same way.. our perception will bound to be different...

let's face it, there's a whole kinda love out there.. there's blood and there's water... there's the love for ur family and other relatives, and there's also the love for your friends and that certain someone.. i think i could categorise myself as a person who loves her family hardcore, cuz like i always say, i'm obsess with them.. i could barely comprehend working long hours n not spend time with them even when living in the same house, what more living without them.. i have a special place within me for extended families too.. i have horrendous thoughts sometimes, one that i could never utter out loud, cuz it scares the shit out of me.. it dwells up in my head sometimes and although i try to keep it out of my mind, i know it's inevitable..

as for my dearest frens, they'll always have an impact on me.. i've grown throughout the years with frens by my side, no matter how often they come and go, no matter they stay the same or they differ, n no matter how much i tell myself i have none.. truth is, i've always had company..  i wasn't the kid who sat alone in class or had lunch alone.. i wasn't that typical loner u watch in movies.. it's just when i define frens, my definition seems to be deeper than usual.. i tend to limit my labels cuz they're so precious to me.. i've always had a wall.. n i'm selfish enough to want ppl break them to earn that label.. a few have.. maybe not torn down completely, but enough to know there's two sides of me.. the other half maybe not so much known, but definitely not what others see..

is all that love? well, to me it is.. love is a very strong feeling, n that's just what it is.. a feeling.. there's no other way to know it unless u feel it.. it makes things better and could also make things worst... u have a special moment and share it with ur loved ones, that moment will be more meaningful because of their presence and u'll be happier than u'll be with others... then there's time where things don't go the way u plan n ur loved ones hurt u.. the cuts will be deeper n the wounds will heal slower.. it's because u love them so much that makes the pain, sometimes, unbearable.. don't u think? love takes something n times it with 10... 

that's why it's a little intimidating for me.. i have my confort zone n i don't put myself out there in fear that i'll get hurt.. i'm more of an observer.. i like to see things from the sideline.. i've observed a number of relationship n manage to have my own definition n view on things.. i can talk a lot about it without experiencing it.. cuz frankly speaking, it ain't easy.. loving ur family, that's kinda easy, for me at least.. but for the other half, that would be a challenge.. maybe cuz i get bored easily.. maybe i'm too picky? but what can i say, i dun like to let strangers in  =b

which brings me to another thought on marriage....
what's your take on that?

Bangkok Express?

a joke just popped into my head about Bangkok, but nvm just ignore it.. bored, Gossip Girl can't stream so i'm left here writing a bit.. so didn't manage to take my car grant (is that what u call it?) last friday, so i went to take it just now at Wisma Nusantara with Hani n Ady.. went there by cab, then later on went for lunch at The Weld.. my first time there, was an ok place.. we decided to eat at Bangkok Express.. our dishes were simple..

 we had Spicy Tom Yam Seafood...

and also Butter Prawn..

forgot to take pic, but we also had some kerabu mangga... total of that along with 2 coconut juice n ice lemon tea cost about rm112.. my take? u could do better.. the tom yam had this sourness in it.. was ok for me but would still prefer my mum's cooking (who doesn't) or my very own.. well, basically the recipe is from her la.. or maybe Santai.. n the butter prawn wasn't really nice.. as u can see, the prawns aren't that big, but i think that's normal? hehehe not sure if it's cuz that's how the Thai cooks it, but if u're looking for butter prawn, that won't be the place to go..  u're better off at a real seafood restaurant.. kerabu mangga was ok, mkn je but not really a fan so can't say much...

so, will i take my family there? nope, would rather take them somewhere else... huhuhuh cm kejam je bunyi   =b

Shayloss BootCamp

can i do it? will i ever do it?  i've always hated exercise (u might be able to tell if u read this blog enough)... but let's face it, that's what i need to do, at least abit, in order to stay healthy.. cuz i dun eat healthy.. i just stuff my face with whatever food i can get (or afford) hehehe so maybe baby steps will do.. i know i had a goal of having an hour workout at least twice within this year, n even that seemed impossible.. so taking cue from my milk consumption effort, which i'm doing quite well considering i've only missed about 1 week or 2 in total days, i'm gonna start super slow on this.. n i'm talking super slow, not even a weekly thing..

see this video above (i know, i like to link videos now  =b )  well Shaycarl n his frens did this bootcamp n the moves didn't seem that difficult.. it's amazing how he dedicated his time to actually make an effort to acheive his goal.. which reminds me, can't wait for Shave Day hehehe  anyway, 4 routines, each takes a minute and 20 seconds of rest in between.. i could do that right? need help with the timing but i really think this is a start.. will try it this weekend (either one day or both) n then we'll see things from there..

although on another note, hula hoop seems much easier right? it's right there inside my room, so what's the problem? huhuhuh what kinda workout do u do?

Westlife Live in KL

this may be old news but just felt like writing about it now.. so as any 80's baby, i've grown up listening to 90's pop music, especially when boy bands was the 'IT' thing during that era.. so as most of u might noe, Westlife had their Gravity tour and stopped by Malaysia on 7th October 2011.. i took the day off that Friday n went out with my mum n sis.. went for breakfast first then karok with my big sis sbb my lil sis threw a fit (gedik).. went back, got ready n head off to Bukit Jalil.. the traffic was awful, got there after about an hour drive, then made a mistake of parking the car way too far than we wanted..

typical malaysian show, it started about 9:10pm i think instead of the said 8:30pm.. we sat almost close to the stage n had a nice view of them.. can't really tell by the pix tho.. they sang some old hits as well as some new songs... they even did a medley of songs by other singers like Coldplay, Rihanna and Lady Gaga.. to me, that was the highlight of the night hehehe talk about awesomeness..

i would prefer if they sang more of their older hits, but i think they had some albums in between then n now so they had to cover those songs too.. unlike BSB, they went solo for a bit before the concert so they didn't have an album together in between (correct me if i'm wrong).. so they did manage to cover a lot of their old songs, which by far is the best concert i've been to, to date  =D  still happy i managed to catch Westlife live n hear them sing What Makes a Man, You Raise Me Up, Seasons In The Sun, When You're Looking Like That and also Flying Without Wings.. would've love to hear them sing If Your Heart's Not In It tho... among the best ballads i've heard because of the melody and lyrics.. so heartbreaking if i would've experienced that myself hehehe

so anyway, not much pics but here's what i took... another fave moment besides the medley was during You Raise Me Up n the crowd took out their phones, which was typical during slow songs.. but instead of using their screens, they used the torchlight app i think, cuz the lights were brighter than usual, not dimmed n super pretty.. i was amazed and smiling from ear to ear n found myself captivated in that moment.. truly amazing and beautiful, they looked like stars in the sky just shining away hehehehe

As a tribute to Steve Jobs, this week will be a quote from him.. RIP..

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on." --- Steve Jobs

i kicked him in the head and watched him as he bled,
blood running down his nose, bruising legs and broken toes,
it's payback time and revenge is a bitch,
you'll never tame me down, not even one bit,
how you like me now, all charged up and in power,
do you like this little girl, taking you over,
you tried to get up, another blow to the tummy,
you moaned in pain, your eyesight all blurry,
do it to me again, don't tell me i didn't warned you,
this is what you get, after all that i went through,
you think it was over the moment you hit me,
you got it all wrong, i'm no longer that girl, baby,
better luck next time, cuz i ain't looking back,
i'm walking away with my dignity intact.

"A Post About Love"

Coming soon and up for debate  =b


He is a hustler, he's no good at all,
He is a loser, he's a bum,
He lies, he bluffs, he's unreliable,
He is a sucker with a gun, 
I know you told me I should stay away,
I know you said he's just a dog astray,
He is a bad boy with a tainted heart,
and even I know this ain't smart,
He is a villian by the devil's law,
He is a killer just for fun, 
The man's a snitch, and unpredictable,
He's got no conscience, he got none.
But mama I'm in love with a criminal,
and this type of love isn't rational, it's physical,
Mama please don't cry, I will be alright,
All reason aside, I just can't deny, love the guy.
And he's got my name tattooed on his arm, his lucky charm
So I guess it's okay, he's with me
And hear people talk try to make remarks, keep us apart
I don't even hear, I don't care.
