movies! good food! fun! finally!

fooh long time no update. getting really lazy to blog nowadays. isn't it weird that i have to time to update my blog in the middle of finals or rushing for assignments or whatever, yet i stop blogging the moment all stress is over? this just proves that humans are just full of unexplainable...weirdness. anyway, finals were finally over! the last subject was really bugging me cause it was on a monday and everything was supposed to be done the week before. seriously NO MOOD to study, then quite a lot of things happened that resulted in me not having enough time to study, then i didn't have time to catch up with all my late nights so i guess my body clock really couldn't take it. so i just dragged myself to the exam hall, scribbled some answers and fell asleep. then woke up again to continue. then dozed off again. then the invigilator came to check on my student id. to make sure they remembered the reason for my failing the paper due to too much sleep. whatever.

i used to sleep during exams in high school, but not now in uni! kinda disappointed in myself. but really can't keep my eyes open. whatever lah.

after the freaking finals were over, went back to get a few hours of sleep, then...OFF WE GO!

had my first Bubba Gump experience!
forgive the very low quality picture. that platter was cajun shrimp and that tin bucket also contained some shrimp dish. yum~ if you love shrimp and you're lazy to deshell the thing, bubba gump's the place to go.. the shrimp's really juicy and nice, the ones we ordered were slightly spicy, but the garlic bread and lemons really made the whole thing nicer. but i forgot to take pictures of the main courses, whatever lah. but the real-life food and the pics in the menu bear quite a strong resemblance. good job on that bubba gump! most of the time i feel disappointed when the pics in the menu look reeally attractive, yet when the real deal came, disappointment is kinda high. thus minus marks whenever this happens. score for bubba gump! the outlet in Sunway is supposedly the largest in Southeast Asia, no idea whether that's true or not. but the whole design is nice and homey, vintage American, with lots of Forrest Gump references.. honestly, i admit that i have never watched Forrest Gump before. there were quite a lot of quotes from the movie and framed pics of his outfit in the place. should've brought a good camera there.

andrew specifically requested that we go bubba gump, cause the thing is, andrew's leaving for UK soon, so me and sandra wanted to have a last blast with him. but he kinda failed, cause he wanted bubba gump for the shrimp, yet he did not know that his girlfriend had shrimp allergy. gagal betul.

since we never really hung out in places other than inti so we decided to have a movie marathon in pyramid, just watch all the movies available on that day hiehhieh.. back then i used to watch movies all the time, and this year, the last movie i watched was 'The Tourist'. how long ago was that? been seriously busy and i missed the cinema a lot :( ok now i sound really weird for having emotional feelings for cinemas now....

the original plan was to watch three movies at one go (the last bladesman, fast & furious 5, and water for elephants) but since we left nilai really late we had to compromise for dinner so we sacrificed 'the last bladesman' and watched the other two instead.

wooh! mindless entertainment! totally loved it! exactly what i needed after stressful exams...
they brought in many of the oldies who acted in the previous franchise... and this installment of fast five is kinda like a mix between Ocean's Thirteen and FF. those 'Rio' elements reminded me of The Hulk 2. small huts stacked on a hill...etc..

and Dwayne Johnson looked dreadful with that beard of his!
loved these two characters. Israeli actress Gal Gadot and Korean American guy Sung Kang. she's HOT! very keira knightley features yet a seriously good figure. this is the kind of girl that makes you decide to go on a diet :S

and for the second movie:
Water for Elephants. non-existent water, only whiskey for the elephant. Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon very unconvincing couple. ew. loved Christoph Waltz as the baddie though. very nice acting on his part~ hmm..its a nice movie, very well filmed, but just the wrong timing for me. all of us lack sleep from finals and in no mood to admire slow-moving movies. but i like it, another day perhaps.

so after that we went yamcha, snowflake closed really early, also met Sandra's friend from subang inti, kelvin. nice to met you :D

Day 2:
very spur-of-the-moment decision to go Midvalley during dinner time. i kinda started to realize the extent of nilai-intian's burning desire to have fun. teehee! the journey took around 40 minutes with smooth traffic. manageable lah. i didn't know they wanted to have movies. so wore shorts. and thin shirt.

reached there real late. Sandra introduced me to this really nice durian puff from sweetchat midvalley. but we decided to get something warm for the movie first. i have already decided to get a new cardigan since my red banana republic one was spoilt from someone's *ahem* friends' *ahem* washing machine, this was a very nice chance for me to get a new one :D

the shops were closed, but sweetchat's manager very nicely agreed to sell us some durian puffs :) thanks sir! the 'restaurant' (i'm not sure what to call it) is really nice, with pink purple orange tiles everywhere and cute chairs.

after meeting Sandra's bestest friend Pamela (she was forever telling me about her~) we hung out in Starbucks. wah at midvalley starbucks still can meet inti peeps. youngsters nowadays really know how to have fun.

the big yellow thingy in the foreground is just the durian puff i'm holding. the thing has reaaally thin pastry skin, cream, and real durian meat inside! *durian heaven yum*

kenny and nico were really mad at me for forcing them to eat that puff before they met pamela (coz of the smell and all, plus she's so pretty, don't want to create bad impression ma) haha. durian is absolutely the nicest thing ever, but just a little difficult in terms of etiquette :P

lepaked in The Gardens after that. haha doesn't Natalie Portman look like she's peeking over her shoulder at us?

for the last movie of the week: THOR!
supposedly The God of Thunder. but this movie is fun lah. if you also refuse to bring your brain in. and don't be too critical. did any of you realize who was Odin? i watched the whole thing until the credits were rolling.. wow.. not gonna give spoilers here, but one thing i have to say: costumes really can disguise. my favorite character was Loki and if any of you have free time(like us) just sit and wait till the credits were over, there's a bonus trailer for the next installment with a twist in the ending. The Avengers i think. funny la i have never discovered Thor as a character from Marvel Comics. till this movie. better not to la. personally i prefer the movie version.

of course i had to use my favourite phrase after the movie: 'i'm hungry.' so they had to accommodate the pregnant woman and go for supper. yeah midnight mcnuggets. i discovered that i had developed a hating for all food within 100 metres of inti. ew. they seriously suck. especially those mamaks with sticky tables and stinky environments. was it me being all stuck up? but i can't stand the food and the whole place now. avoid it if you can. still pondering whether to get the Spongebob Squarepants Happy Meal toys or not.

aiks very crazy lah after we went back the next day went for pool and foosball with andrew, went for snowflakes and pastry with sandra and andrew, also met up with kelvin again and sandra's 'driver' called 'moyang' who was currently doing his CLP... these few days really met with a lot of Sandra's friends. she has a tendency to make sure that her friends blend in with each other, at least get to know each other, and also theories on socializing and stuff. hmm. that got me thinking. but i know that my socializing skills are real bad. bubbly and friendly are two words that you won't ever use to describe me hehe. just.. something lacking. no energy to keep up the banter, think of new topics.. haih. even more so when you're trying your best to get new topics and the other person replies one word answers. what to do?? guess i still have a lot more to learn in this area.

so that's about the first part of my week and some undisclosed details la, but really made up for my last few months of exile. kinda satisfied with this kind of fun. but i just wish that andrew wasn't leaving that fast. i've only known him for 1 year man. college friendships are really short huh. whoever will bug sandra and go for midnight chicken sharwarmas with me?? dang. hate farewells. at least this one was fun.

anyway, i will be leaving for malacca this friday, tioman island next monday and cameron highlands next thursday! lovely trips ahead. i have absolutely no recollection of tioman and cameron since i've only went there as a kid. hope to have fun there, and i guess i wouldn't be blogging or facebooking much either. have fun peeps, i'm going to milk my week-long break for all that it's worth!

so long,
joyseet ~

p.s: should i get a data plan for my bb? someone just said that using a bb without a data plan is like having a ferrari without petrol. ouch. but no can do when you can only afford the ferrari but not the petrol ma. any recommendations??
