Of Shaolin and Yee Sang

Last Saturday, I got free tickets to watch Shaolin with the boyf @ Midvalley, courtesy of GSC's FB fanpage. We reached there around 10am, just in time to collect our tickets and the movie started at 10.30pm sharp (:
Shaolin is another Benny Chan's film with famous actors like Andy Lau, Jacky Chan, Nicholas Tze, Fan Bing Bing and more in it. According to Wikipedia, Shaolin is also known as The New Shaolin Temple is a 2011 Hong Kong action film. It is to be an updated version of Jet Li's movie debut, The Shaolin Temple.
Synopsis: China is plunged into strife as feuding warlords try to expand their power by warring over neighboring lands. Fuelled by his success on the battlefield, young and arrogant Hao Jie sneers at Shaolin's masters when he beats one of them in a duel. But pride comes before a fall. When his own family is wiped out by a rival warlord, Hao is forced to take refuge with the monks. As the civil unrest spreads and the people suffer, Hao and the Shaolin masters are forced to take a fiery stand against the evil warlords. They launch a daring plan of rescue and escape.

My verdict: Spoiler alert! I was excited to watch this movie when I first saw its trailer. It turned out to be a sad gruesome action packed movie yet with a little bit of humor that is up to my expectation. It will be a movie that my Dad will like too. Yet the movie is somehow draggy in certain scenes and I was flabbergasted by a scene where a monk was killed brutally by Nicholas Tse. Besides, Buddhist teachings are integrated in the movie as well. Overall I think it's a nice movie yet with a sad ending (because the protagonist died while the antagonist survived, UNFAIR). I rate this movie 3.5 out of 5.


After the movie, we headed back to the boyf's place cause we're gonna have dinner with his family. As usual, I camwhored in the car to kill time.

#1. Self shot
#2. Some shots of us when we stopped there's red light
#3. Traffic on the Federal Highway was amazingly smooth
#4. The boyf (:
#5. Obviously, I was too bored
We had Yee Sang(raw salmon salad) before dinner. Honestly, this is my first time having this so I'm a bit jakun about the thought of Lou Sang with the boyf's family :P and I don't like the taste of it cause there were lots of ginger and sesame seeds.
Lou for higher grades in exam ROFL

Before that, meet Baby Bryant who just turned 8 months old and he has four cute little teeth now! He is growing really fast.
So cute right? :D

Then moving on to the haul of the day; Skinlite Cooling Cucumber Pads from Sasa for only RM3.90! I bought their Aqua Boost Moisturizing Mask for RM3.90 on the next day too. Most of the things in Sasa are on sales now, so go grab some eye and facial masks while stocks last!

On Sunday, I met up with the lovelies for another food adventure again before heading back to Klang. We had shabu shabu @ Plus One Shabu Shabu in One Utama since it was cold and raining outside. Grabbed Big Apple donuts and Auntie Anne's Pretzels after that :P
So that pretty much sum up my awesome weekend ♡♡♡♡♡ before flying back to my home sweet home tomorrow at noon YAY It's the last day of January today and February is finally here, tomorrow to be exact. Please be nice to me :D

Kthanksbai gtg start packing nao!

A Magnolia Sherbet A Day Melts My Daily Blues Away

Besides having problem with Monday blues, I actually have this thing called daily blues. I'm not sure if it's only me or every students do experience the same thing as well. Blame the lazy bug in me! Examples of the so called daily blues:

#1. Getting up from bed early every morning for classes.
#2. Having major issues with weight.
#3. Feeling boring & sleepy during long lectures that never seem to end.
#4. Having piles of assignments that took over all the time to have fun.
#5. Being broke after uncontrolled retail therapy.
But no worries.... cause something awesome is on its way to the rescue! It's the refreshingly fruity F&N Magnolia Sherbet that comes in 4 different flavours; orange, lychee, mangosteen & melon!
I've been searching everywhere for these sherbets yet ended up failed every freaking time. So today I dragged Joeann along to Jusco Midvalley to try our luck! Guess what? We found it!! Each of us took 2 different flavours each and headed to the counter as fast as possible with the hope that these sherbets won't melt by the time we reached our hostel but they did T__T
After we reached the hostel, we quickly digged in and slurped (since it was alrdy melting)! Minutes later, we finished everything. So which is my favourite flavour of all? *drum rolls*

It would be the ORANGE flavoured sherbet!!! Why so? Cause....
#1. It has light and soft texture that lift my senses right away! *Double thumbs up*
#2. It contains orange puree in it too! (as we all know, orange is high in Vitamin C)
#3. All of these below, period :D
#4. It was so good that I jizzed on my pants.
magnolia sherbet
#5. Last but not least, I wanna be famous just like the annoying orange but I want to be known as the annoying orange sherbet eater! LOLOLOLOL I can sing the icecream song (I got some icecream, ♫ and you can have noneeeee, ♪♩ na 12x) So who's more annoying now?
So what are you waiting for? I can have the whole gallons of goodies and you can't have some cause I'm not sharing :P Instead of going for retail therapy/karaoke/expensive dinner, you can have F&N Magnolia Sherbet instead to make your day without even feeling guilty :D Available for only RM2.50 per cup at any hypermarket or local supermarket near you! The best part is you get a chance to get rewarded while enjoying the sherbets, more details here!
Be sure to lay your hands on this heavenly desserts before they are out of stock!
Happy Sherbet-ing people ♥♥♥
