Mimi's First Movie Review

Typing this blog amidst my beloved Amelia playing doctor on me :)

Friday 13th June: It's a 13th Friday but it's also a first time for my baby girl.. to watch a movie! Watch the Kungfu Panda at 3.30pm Sun Plaza Eng Wah Cineplex. Honestly, I haven't had the opportunity to step into Sun Plaza for YEARS... yes.. many years..

Anyway, the cineplex was not crowded. In fact, we (Kak Masturah, Umai, Hafiz, Atikah, Hubby, Amelia and Me) had a whole row to ourselves. And my girl... had a nice time laughing and disturbing others while watching the show. Good to say that the show was worth it and we will definitely get the DVD. Wish abang Hashim could have joined in. Amelia would have love having her Cik Amoy around. Hehehe...

Going to Tina's place later... and tomorrow is a good day to go swimming..

BTW, went Raffles City-Funan-Suntec yesterday. Got another set of controller and game for a good price of $130.

Amelia's Antics

Amelia has now a new weapon... riding on kiddy rides... and not those cheap ones I recall riding.. It's the $1 - $2 per ride ones! But very cute ones. There's the Bear in the Big Blue House @ TM




At Courts... Thomas the train...



Teletubbies... *shudders* I hate 'em... Did I share my theory of them not being real humans in it??



And finally, the Panda in Panda Kungfu! BTW, we are going to watch it today later with the nephew and nieces... It's Amelia's FIRST trip to the movie theatre! Yey...



Going to Nadia's (Tina's baby) birthday this Sun.. I'll show the invitation card that my good friend is soooooo free to make.. hehe... And yes, Tina, I know the letter was from you... Goodness, your handwriting has remained the same all throughout :)

A Boo-K Based in Singapore

On my trip to the library... Hold and behold. What do I see? A book... By some Joseph R. Garber.


Guess what the book was on. A fiction ... on drug activity and corruption in Singapore. And the hero? A high-up-there corporate innocent American. See the snaps I took of it.


It even has a map of Singapore! Quite accurate... except... there's no PASAR Ris... It's Pasir Ris.. *shakes head*
PASAR = Market
Pasir = Sand

See the difference.

Oh btw... it's PulaU... not Pulu...







The copyright was in 1999. I read parts of it already. The acknowledgement is on STB, SPF.. and the normal government bodies... and some individuals who don't want to be named. I guess it's from these lot that the out of the world stories were deduced. Some about our strict society. Something about strict composures of Islam *shakes head again - don't know where this came about*. I'm a proud Muslim woman yet I practise the only one I knew... the one that was preached with living in moderately. Yes, there's the headscarf, but there's nothing about living in the stoneage. In fact, if one were to read the studies of Tawhid properly, it preaches moving forward as well.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings on my beloved religion and country. I digress and come back to the book.. It speaks of the American embassy at High Street... here I giggle... I've worked at Armenian St fora good 5 yrs and literally lived around the area (as it's near my beloved National Library previously) since before 1999.. I never recalled seeing a 'crumbling building'... is the book talking about the embassy?? I hope not... but it was the most oldest building there... coz honestly, there isn't any there that was 'crumbling'!

I giggled all the way reading the absurdity of the media circus and shoddy work of the police (namely, CNB) and yes, even the ranks were slightly skewed. Having friends in both areas of work, I know that the writer has definitely wild imagination... But I let the readers out there decide for themselves.. But I must say that it's well an interesting read albeit lacking in the descriptive and narrative work.

My 2cents worth at work again :)

Playstation 3

My ramblings - No more Petrol at JB

Gasps! No more petrol in JB... so we can't pump there anymore... nearest pump station to JB: Malacca!!!

My 2 cents worth...

Fine that there's no subsidized petrol in JB. I've nothing against it. Good move to it, Malaysian Government. However, this is a very short-term measure with much adverse effects to it. Let me not go into the Economic and Social issues here. I bet many bloggers and netizens who have voiced their opinions and negative effects.
Allow me to take a much friendlier approach. Allow me to provide suggestions looking at both monetary and legislative policy.

Going long term, the government can't afford to subsidize heavily the petrol, especially with the current cost of petrol is pushing towards US$130 per barrel. It won't be surprising if it does go beyond the US$130 mark. Many occurences will happen with the prices of fuel skyrocketing. Therefore, the world governments should look into bringing down consumption. Okay.. I digress a bit on what Malaysia should do.

Instead of putting a ban on non-Malaysian registered cars, I suggest to give no subsidies to all. Whoa... don't get your war cries on me yet. What I meant is that non-Malaysian registered cars to pay the full non-subsidized prices. Shouldn't it more far than to have an all-out ban. Okay, now you worry about the administration part of it. Well, admittedly, it is a bit more work. The petrol kiosk operators can just charge the normal price, ie. declare the non-subsidized price on the pumps. Have signs indicating that although foreigners can purchase the petrol, no subsidies can be provided. In the long run, the agency can also be provided important figures to make future decisions.

I apologize but this sudden ban seems to me as a short-cut way. Again, I didn't mean any insult to any party, but it really seems like a no-brainer where no thoughts to the future was being taken into consideration. Having a sudden ban would cause several upheavals to the economy of the governing state even though the Federal state is not involved, it will be soon. Blame it on the domino effect.

I do believe that other factors need to be considered as more and more countries move towards being a green nation that emits lesser carbon dioxide. Well, that's another topic for me to ramble and tatter on.

No hard feelings k.. Love y'all.

BTW... Mom, if I can't visit you often in JB, apologies... my petrol may not last that long to bring you jalan2 there for shopping. *Giggles*

Boys... boys... boys... and girls

I hereby declare that boys are lusty from birth! It's in their genetic structure make up. Why? Coz of firsthand experience.

My son refused the expensive special premature milk I gave him.. he insisted on the au naturel breastmilk... *giggles* He makes this cute grunting sound when he suckles and when it's not enough? Get ready for mayhem! He'll get upset and throws tantrum until he tires out and sleeps... peace again... that's what I'm blissfully having as I refuse to entertain tantrums. Hear that, Adam??? You can ask your sis on how bad and heartless I am. I don't give no face to any tantrums, screams and shouts... you do it outside? I'll leave you there... Watch me do it... if you dare :) Fair warning.

Oh yeah, I had a nice time shopping... will wear my new shoes tomorrow for Adam's check up. He's getting his BCG vaccination.

Amelia's not at home tonight. She's bunking over at her grandma's. Nice for me. :)
Got her to go to school to start on Jun 23. Heheh... She can't wait to go to playgroup. She's soooo happy...

Oppps... the son's awake..
