Prince of Persia 2010

Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley


Synopsis: Adopted from the streets of Nasaf by King Sharaman of Persia, young Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) grows up amongst royalty and quickly earns his place as a mighty warrior and prince. As his brothers Garsiv and Tus plan battle strategies, a spy sends word that the Holy City of Alamut has been supplying weapons to enemies of Persia. Taking matters into his own hands, Tus orders an attack on the sacred city and upon its fall Dastan encounters the beautiful Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton). When King Sharaman dies under mysterious circumstances (which is a poisoned robe) shortly after, and Dastan is accused of his murder, he flees with the princess on a harrowing mission to clear his name. Learning from Tamina the true motives behind Alamut's invasion, Dastan must embark on a perilous quest to stop an evil mastermind's plot for ultimate power with a mystical weapon (a dagger which has been safely protected by Tamina) that…

Happy Wesak Day

Today is Wesak and so coincidentally, Vinnie's birthday! i would like wish her Happy Birthday!

Wesak, aka Vesākha is an annual holiday observed traditionally by Buddhists in most of the Asian countries. It's informally called Buddha's birthday, it actually encompasses the birth, englightenment and passing away of Gautama Buddha.

(source from here)


supposely Wesak Day is treated as a public holiday(PH) in our country but unfortunately, it's not a PH for Silverstone T_T anyway, i am off today since EK is off as well, we are planning to hit the cinema for Prince of Persia later on (provided if we're able to get the tickets :S). we shall visit the Siamese temple tonight and join the rest of the crowd for some prayers. i love this day because it's very happening lol...

last but not least, i wish you a happy Wesak Day and have a great weekend! :*

Interesting facts

1. Can love really last a lifetime?
Absolutely -- but only if you chuck the fairy tale of living happily ever after. A team of scientists recently found that romantic love involves chemical changes in the brain that last 12 to 18 months. After that, you and your partner are on your own. Relationships require maintenance. Pay a visit to a nursing home if you want to see proof of lasting love.
(i believe yes...)

2. Can a man and a woman ever just be friends?
For a short time perhaps. Making the friendship last requires that you find each other at least vaguely repulsive. Good luck!
(well, this is hard to say... but judging from the society these days, i guess man and woman can be more than just friend!)

3. Why is it so hard to say you're wrong?
Because it often involves saying, "I'm sorry," which is even harder. Throughout history people have found it easier to stop speaking to one another, punch, slander, shoot and bomb rather than apologize. Tip: Next time just say, "W…

Protect your eyes

Computer is one of our best friend these days especially for office workers like us. to me, i spend about 9 hours per day dealing with the monitor (which is very boring). sometimes i experience eyes distraction such as blurred vision and even eye sore. i went for a eye check up last week and the power for right eye has reduced, though not much, and my left eye's power remains the same :) it's indeed very important to protect our eyes as it's one of the most important organ for human beings. below i found a few tips about eye care:1. Exercise your eyesRegular work hours should be infused with short breaks. During such breaks, blink your eyes several times. While you keep your eyes closed, roll your eyeballs both clockwise and anticlockwise and take a deep breath. Gradually open your eyes while releasing your breath. This exercise lasts for a minute and you can repeat it three times before getting back to work. It serves as a good workout for the eyes.2. Look awayWhile worki…

Bigger eyes

I have been a contact lens user for at least 7 years. throughout the years, i have tried several brands such as Bausch & Lomb and FreshKon. of late, i started to invest in colored contact lens from Geo. i must say contact lens have given me alot of convenience!

last few weeks, i found out a contest from FreshLook Illuminate where they are giving out free trial daily disposable lenses. all you have to do is just register online and answer a few simple questions and 3 pairs of daily contact lens are on your way!

the freebies

got discount voucher somemore, dont you just love free thing? :P


the new FreshLook Illuminate lenses are uniquely designed to match the natural brown and black shade of Asian eyes

after. i hope my photos are able to give you a clear before-after result. anyway, my eyes are obviously bigger and bolder after wearing the lenses, in the natural way! the effect is promising.however, i find that the lenses are abit hard to remove. but as a hard core contact lens…

Top reasons why you're overspending

1. Paying With PlasticTakeout or dine in? Paper or plastic? Cash or credit? Of all the choices you make at the checkout counter, the decision to pay with a credit card has the biggest impact on your bottom line. studies shown that consumers are willing to spend more when they pay with a credit card instead of cash, because it allows consumers to focus more on what they're getting, or buying, than what they're losing, or spending.
Credit cards "buffer the reality of spending because they leave more cash in our pockets and purses and provide a delay before payment is required." (so the next time you decide to pay with card, think again!)2. Listening to MusicListening to music is perfect for increasing motivation during a workout. It also increases the motivation to spend. You're more apt to give in to impulse purchases in shops where instrumental or classical music is playing, according to one study.
Experts believe that loud music also impacts spending.
Louder music …

Review: The Face Shop BB Cream

BB cream has hit the market some times ago and it's becoming more and more popular. BB cream is known as a light foundation and moisturizer at the same time.

i've just invest on The Face Shop The Skin Extra BB Cream SPF 20PA++. i like it's scent and the smooth texture.

the tube

the texture is smooth and blend easily


before


after (sorry if you cant see clearly, i'm learning to do a better close up shooting ^^) it looks natural and covers most of my pigmentation.

overall review:
unlike many liquid foundation, this BB cream is very moisturizing as well, it's good in controlling oil too. in long term, it's believed to improve skin's condition and skin tone and even out the complexion. value added for the SPF ingredient where it can act as a sun protector too. and i especially like the floral scent! however, it's available in only one shade so it could be a problem for those who has tanned skin. but it definetely works for me!

how to use:
Dot the BB cream all ov…
