Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011

I'm here for another movie review!

Image taken from here

Starring: James Franco, Freida Pinto, David Oyelowo, John Lithgow

I did not planned to watch this, but after reading a few positive comments from friends, I decided to join the gang in the cinema. Turns out, not bad!

I love how they did the apes thingy! I learn from here that all the apes were created digitally by Weta Digital using motion capture. And the main apes, Caesar, he's really smart and looks like human being in certain ways. Is it true that human evolved from monkey?

Anyway, not much love stuff in this movie but quite alot of actions in the end. Overall, I'd give a personal rating of 4/5.


  1. i've seen the ads along the highway but i don't think i'll be watching it. i don't enjoy watching science fiction movies :P

  2. I watched the older version and found it not bad.

    Not sure whether will watch this newer one, all depends on my availability :p

  3. they keep on coming up with remake of old movies, of course with improvement. the old ape was real actor. so this time they improve with modern technology.
    man from ape? nah.. no way my ancestor are from ape.

  4. I saw the ad on TV and I really want to watch it. But too bad, Indon stop importing foreign movies especially box office movies from US. Guess we have to buy DVD already lor.

  5. The late Charles darwin "might be happy" with this movie as if someone is endorsing his theory but if you looked at some human monkey behaviors which can rivalled or more mischievous than our "cousin", i guess if we truly found out we're of monkey roots & not of god's creation, we'll be damned & not happy!!!

  6. Also notice the "welcome & thanks for visiting flying banner" - nice!

  7. I remember watching the television series when I was young. Maybe this round I will bring my kids to see...

  8. wow! thnx for the tips... I will buy the DVD ;)

  9. I think if got chance I will watch this since . . . I like the trailer and how apes crush the earth haha

  10. wow, looks like you've been watching quite a lot of movies and quite frequently recently huh??

  11. Barb, oh then what kinda movie you like? ^^

    Johnnie, yes technology is getting advanced, no need human being with make up anymore.

  12. Never missed the series of Apes movies in the past. Got something in common Bananaz & Apes hehe.

  13. Bananaz, something in common? Haha :P

  14. You actually like this movie huh? Hmmm maybe I should check it out too then!

  15. yoo u r so fast!!! i wish to watch too! i juz completed HP7! looking forward for tis weekend!

  16. After watching its trailer I also don't think i gonna watch it... the animatronic effect didn't turn out so real I reckon. But since you said it's not bad, I should at least watch the DVD version.;D

  17. I dont think I wanna bring Ethan watch this show as the apes are rather garang @_@

  18. Shirlexia, well to me, at least it's great. Dare not promise you much as I think you're more picky when it comes to movies, LOL.

    珊姑娘, oh contraty with you, I dint watch any of HP installments, heheh :P

    Alice, LOL. Am I so convincing?

    Merryn, LOL. May be not so suitable for kids at his age.

  19. Hi hayley,
    sounds like a very interesting movie. I'll definitely will list this movie into my shopping list.

    Have a nice day yeah?

  20. Somehow I don't fancy these apes movies since I was a kid, will be skipping this. How about cowboys and aliens?

  21. Was supposed to watch with colleagues but have to let it go cos I need to do OT yesterday =.= Sien!

  22. Willie, yes quite interesting!

    ChrisAu, from the trailer, cowboy and aliens looks like a nice action movie too!

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)

Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
