What I think? : Battle Los Angeles

I went to see this movie today with my usual movie buddies. I was told that this movie is worth watching. I was so stress out at work that I decided to go with the flow and just follow them without read up on what this movie is all about. Oh boy! This is a war movie. Totally military style. I don’t really watch war movie and I don’t like it.

Battle: Los Angeles PosterRamon Rodriguez Picture

“A Marine Staff Sergeant who has just had his retirement approved goes back into the line of duty in order to assist a 2nd Lieutenant and his platoon as they fight to reclaim the city of Los Angeles from alien invaders.” sources imdb

Director:Jonathan Liebesman
Writer:Christopher Bertolini
Stars:Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez and Bridget Moynahan


What I think?
* at least this movie is  better than skyline
* is totally military movie with a lot of shooting, bombing and a lot of casualties
* too many characters and not much depth on the character background which made it less meaningful to me
* I just can’t wait for the movie to be over and I was restless the whole time
* I only like the last scene when they laser the alien’s ship
*thank God they have Ramon Rodriguez in the movie

American Idol, the result show

I don't have the time to watch the result show tonight. But from the review I read from the internet I think I got two out of three right. The bottom there were Thia, Stefano and Casey. America voted Casey off and the judges decided to save him.
I don't think Casey was bad compare to the other two. It's just America likes him less. So that's the end of Motown week.
I am looking forward to next week performance.

Top 11 Motown performances song list:
Casey Abrams - "Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Marvin Gaye
Thia Megia - "(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave" by Martha & The Vandellas
Jacob Lusk - "You're All I Need To Get By" by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
Lauren Alaina - "You Keep Me Hangin' On" by The Supremes
Stefano Langone - "Hello" by Lionel Richie
Haley Reinhart - "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" by The Miracles
Scotty McCreery - "For Once In My Life" by Stevie Wonder

Paul McDonald - "The Tracks of My Tears" by The Miracles
Naima Adedapo - "Dancing In The Street" by Martha & The Vandellas

I think the bottom three will be Stefano, Thia and Haley

* checked email in the morning while sipping my morning coffee
* have make an appearance for the monthly assembly with our Minister and top management
* last minute check up on our portal
today01 * did a few readings on ISMS which I totally don’t get and it’s a bit boring
* Puspanita Meeting
today02 * then I have to rush for Pre Audit ISMS meeting. Can you believe they appoint me as the ISMS Audit leader? Seriously?As if I didn’t have enough time already! Urgh!!! I already felt sick.. well as long as Nuffy Napi willing to keep me company that maybe I can tolerate it.

what’s in my bag?

I saw this entry at elsie blog and it looks like fun. Jom, let see what’s in my bag
* I have way too many pens. I really love collecting them
* my shopping bag
* pink lipstick and a lip gloss (I totally forgot it’s in there)
* my sony xperia x10- can’t leave home without it
* car keys
* my Titus pink watch
* my old purse – hemm I think I need a new one
* my moisturiser and foundation
Urgh!! People told me I look a bit chubby. I really need to do something to tackle that issue.

I really need to take stock of what I’m doing wrong. Not eating doesn’t do my body good. Is it because of the stress or because I’m almost 40 or because I’m almost 40 and stressful all the time? Oh boy!

Lets grow old together


  • Let’s grow old together… beginning with today. 
  • Let’s work slowly with each other and build a relationship that we can both enjoy being a part of. 
  • Let’s share love and understand that neither of us is perfect; we are both subject to human frailties. 
  • Let’s hold each other close and whisper though the night—pledging our love, honoring our commitment. 
  • Let’s encourage each other to pursue our dreams, even when we’re weary from trying. 
  • Let’s expect the best that we both have to give and still love when we fall short of our expectations. 
  • Let’s be friends and respect each other’s individual personality and give one another room to grow. 
  • Let’s be candid with each other and point out strengths and weaknesses. 
  • Let’s understand each other’s personal philosophy, even if we don’t agree. 
  • Let’s lie awake long into the night sharing our innermost secrets. 
  • Let’s be friends as well as lovers. 
  • Let’s laugh at time and plan with each other and wonder how we ever got along without this love we’ve found. 
  • Let’s never take for granted these moments that we’ve shared, but always be reminded of how intensely we have learned to live, how completely we have learned to love. 
  • Let’s grow old together… and look back on life and smile.

I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be.

Why I love Kimora

Channel E-- 9:30pm every Monday 


I am so excited to see the new episode of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane
Why I love the show?

#1) It was so inspiring watching Kimora juggles between being a business woman and a mom

#2) The best thing about her life is she can include her kids in her daily life. They are a part of her. That is not an easy thing to do

#3) She reminds me a lot of someone I know.

#4) She is all about being different, being creative, one of a kind, relevant and making an impact.

Forgiveness is not something we do for others but …

Forgiveness is typically defined as the process of concluding resentment, indignation or anger as a result of a perceived offense, difference or mistake, and/or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution.[1] The Oxford English Dictionary defines forgiveness as 'to grant free pardon and to give up all claim on account of an offense or debt'.
Forgiveness may be considered simply in terms of the person who forgives including forgiving themselves, in terms of the person forgiven and/or in terms of the relationship between the forgiver and the person forgiven. In some contexts, forgiveness may be granted without any expectation of restorative justice, and without any response on the part of the offender (for example, one may forgive a person who is incommunicado or dead). In practical terms, it may be necessary for the offender to offer some form of acknowledgment, apology, and/or restitution, or even just ask for forgiveness, in order for the wronged person to believe himself able to forgive.[1]” sources Wikipedia
I’ve been struggling with this issue since a few years ago and I am not really sure if I’ve completely master it. When I watched Private Practice last Sunday, I was reminded a lot about this issue. I wish I have a professional friend who can help me deal with the emotional baggage I’ve been carrying all these years. How do you really know if you have forgive someone when you can really forget?
These are a few things that I’ve tired to reduce the pain on a daily basis.

#1) Blogging – I think I started blogging during the time I was hurt the most. I couldn’t talk to anybody. I couldn’t slept that night and I ended up blogging all night long about what was on my mind. The pain, the heartache, the betrayal, the self loathing… everything. Seeing all your pain on screen really helps me letting go some of the pain.
#2) Scrapbooking – I also found out that making a scrapbook layout about my struggle, my pain and my emotional turmoil really helps a lot. That is why I have never really stop making a scrapbook layout. I really found it very therapeutic.
#3) Making new friends – having a different kind of people around you also helps. Suddenly I realize that life is so much more interesting when you have a lot of friends to share it with.

#4) Stay busy and on the go – this doesn’t really help in the long run but at least it’s the short term solution. It helps my mind from thinking about the bad things in my life. Doing things I love to do and make me happy on a daily basis. I seldom let myself stop. If I stop I will be back in that zone where my whole world falls apart. I don’t want to be back there.
#5) Focus on the present. – This really helps a lot because there’s nothing I can do about the past. All I have is the future, so I might as well focus on that
