Kit Showcase: Coffee Morning

Today is the last Sunday before Ramadan. Life was amazingly busy today. I did plan to blog more today but it turned out that I only have limited time left at the end of the day to devote more on blogging.

Anyway as always Sunshine Studio Scraps has a lot of beautiful new release this weekend. Today I would like to showcase this new kit from Pixelily Designs called Coffee Morning. It’s currently 30% off.

I really like to down to earth color with a touch of red. So warm and cuddly.

What do I think? // Captain America

I went to watch this movie last night with some friends. It’s like the last movie we will watch together before Ramadhan.

‘It is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erksine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erksine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's head of its secret HYDRA research department, Johann Schmidt aka the Red Skull, Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot. However, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America and his war against Schmidt begins.Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com) excerpt from imdb website

What do I think?

  • I just love the 1940’s era, so classic
  • Tommy Lee Jones was great in the movie – guffy and lovable
  • I am not really a fan of war movie, so the few war scene was not my favourite
  • I really like the scene when Roger was transform from a small man physically into taller and masculine man
  • this wasn’t a great movie. It was just alright for me. I enjoy it but not as much as Hanna or Thor
  • I can’t wait for Avengers to hit the big screen. All the superhero in one movie! How cool is that?

Can’t get enough of Firzara Exclusive

Shoot and Edit // Laughter

I do enjoy photography and lately I have been missing my camera so much. I seldom pick up my DSLR and just shoot for fun. When I went to Langkawi last weekend, I brought a long my DSLR and snapped a few photos. I totally enjoy the feeling of being behind the camera and also in front of the camera.
This was Wan first experience taking a flight. We were on our way to Langkawi and the fastest way to go there is by air. I decided to capture her first experience! I was so jealous because she can remember her first feeling of taking a flight for the first time. The joy and the excitement of it! 
I really love her facial expression of anticipation, joy, anxiety and wondering what would happened in a few minutes.

Unwritten

My life at the moment is a bit messy. Something just seems to be out of control


If I could write a script for my life, it would be something like this:
- I would be a weird and sexy woman with a secret super power no one knows about
- I have a lot of unresolve issue from the past
- I have the ability to sense when something is not right
- When people look at me they feel calm and relax
- I am an expert in martial arts, multilingual and live all over the world
----------------------------------
Heheh just something in my imagination even though it seems impossible to accomplish and out of this world.
Sometimes it's good to think outside the box and finding a new way of thinking.

What do I think? // Hanna

image

“Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Ms. Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity..” source imdb

What do I think?

  • I love this movie. It’s much better than Transformer 3
  • I thought Hanna looked familiar. She was in Lovely  Bones
  • I really love seeing girl kick butt
  • I can feel her emotion through out the movie. Brilliant Performance by  the actress
  • I was really at the edge of my seat while watching Hanna’s journey
  • Somehow the  movie feels like Fearless book series. I would really love to see the book in big screen
  • Will there be Hanna 2? Can’t wait for the  sequel
  • This movie is definitely different. I enjoy every moment of it

List #17 // Words that are hard to spell


Happy Sunday! I am already on list #17. Words that are hard to spell, what could that be for me? I think most of Malay language is a bit easy to spell because most of them spell exactly as they sound. English on the other hand is a different story. I don’t really know all the fancy and sophisticated words in English, but the one that I do know can sometimes give me problem
These words made my list..
  • Wednesday ( I don’t think I ever mention the ‘d’ after e)
  • opportunity (the double pp is also very hard for me to figure out in the first place)
  • colleague (doesn’t really sound like the spelling)
  • color or is it colour ?
  • recipe
  • sophisticated

When life gives you lemon

Embracing the moment has been my mantra lately. This is me making lemonade:





# only great things happened when I stepped outside the door
# I'm getting strong every time a humongous wave hit me
# I am totally self aware about my flaws and that makes me more human
# I try not to be dishonest with myself
# Creativity is the most amazing talent to have. Never a dull moment
