happy be-early berfdae

"Forbidden Kingdom" made Jon and I laugh so hard!
It's like a rip-off of Lord of the Rings!
The fire pool, the army marching out Mordor-style ... i donno what else to list. 
The fighting is pretty good lah, I mean, IT IS by Yuen Woo Ping and stars Jet Li and Jackie Chan after all. 
And granted, it's one of the more cinematographically acceptable ones, but it's still really a fusion of stereotypes man.
And why do they have to make the Chinese in the show speak Mandarin in such a weird accent?!
Oh well, I hope Dad enjoyed it. 
At least he didn't fall asleep in it, which prob means he was captivated. 

I had a good time of catch-up tonight with the gals in YL zone.
It's been a while since we met up to chill out, and I feel very blessed for the little things.
That they dated me out since weeks ago...pakat-ed with my mum and colleagues not to get the same gift...and turn up even tho they were tired, and one even sick, after a long day packed with activities.

When I sms-ed them to thank them after, they replied, "That's what frens are for..."
But even as frens, it took effort and I appreciate that.

Yes, maybe I'm growing older after all...haha....and learning to appreciate the little things in life.
But I prefer it this way.
I always think it's better to chase after your bliss than gripe over your expectations unmet.

Check out the pics on my facebook. :)

Okei, I'm off to bed. 
Hopefully the mad sneezes will be gone when I get up tomorrow!

It's got a little of everything! Not meant to be a spoof kind, but but Jon and I were laughing more along the lines of "I don't believe this!!!" Cos it's rather stereotypical of angmoh+chinese movies. :P
