Eventful Weekend!

***WARNING***
Long Post Ahead!

It was a busy but fruitful weekend. I even managed to catch 2 movies in between! :)

We saw "The Proposal" on one day and "GI Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra" the next. They were both good! I can't really decide which I enjoyed more cuz they're of different genres. But nevertheless, creme of their crop!

The Proposal
I have heard about many bad reviews/critics regarding this flick but you should know by now that I NEVER trust movie critics. "The Proposal" gives me even more reason to believe so.

I know it seems like a typical chick-flick (ok it is) but it somehow is not as stereotypical as most chick-flicks. the ones where girl and guy starts out hating each other, girl and guy forced to do something tgt, girl and guy develop feelings for each other, girl and guy have misunderstanding, girl and guy clears misunderstanding and guy wins girl back. HAHA.

ok in this case, it is kinda the same (shit) but the twist is that.. it is quite funny. AHAHHAA. i dunno how to put this across properly! ok, i think it's right to say that the jokes in the movie are not the kind whereby u see it and relate it back to another certain chick-flick. the jokes are original and creative in this chick-flick and makes me fall in love with love all over again. :)

but that could be just me, don't take my word for it... but just watch it for a good laugh and especially if you need to release stress!

Ryan Reynolds has the killer-bod! Sorry, just had to add that. HAHA!

UPDATE! (Useless tidbit of information!) I just wiki-ed Ryan Reynolds and turns out we share the birthdate! And get this.. he is Scarlett Johansson's husband?! Well, i wouldn't have expected anything less for Scarlett!

GI Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra
I agreed to watching GI Joe only cuz the hubby wanted to watch it. the only draw for me was Joseph Gordon-Levitt in it but I had not expected him to have a big part in the show.. so it was a really pleasant surprise to see his spectacular performance! i really hope his big hollywood break comes along soon!

and oh, lee byung hun was superb with his character too! his English was very impressive by Korean standards.. it was almost flawless!

I am not going to give anything away.. cuz i really think it is a good show and everyone shud watch it! some might feel the story is a bit weak (but i think it is good enough even though it reminds me of Star Wars - the modern version. HAHA!) but watch it for the effects and the war gadgets. It is so COOL!!!! I have to totally agree that war these days is not about the number of soldiers/tanks/weapons you have.. it is a war of technological advancements! The gadgets depicted really blew me away. But I am glad it is not real.. it would cause massive destruction to the world, no doubt.

besides, there's channing tatum to see and there is absolutely no reason girls wouldn't love his character. patriotic and true to to his one love. *swoons* oh, and he's HOT, of cuz. haha!

Wedding Photos Selection

I got to check out the photos I have taken for my wedding album on Saturday and I was very very pleased! i must say that hubby and i are very lucky cuz most of the things we have planned for our wedding so far... are turning out exactly to plan! i have alwaes had a vision for the way my photos will look and I am so so lucky that they had turned out exactly the way I wanted them! i cudn't be more happy.. and i can't wait to get my hands on the soft copies in Sep... will most certainly show them off here la. :p

Shopping

I went shopping with my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law on Sunday to pick out their clothes for my wedding.. we were super efficient! we set out at 4pm and we were all done by 8pm! That is 3 dresses, 1 cheong-sam and 4 tops! I am now one step closer to ticking all of the things on my to-do list!

Wedding Preps Update

And we are so very lucky.. hubby managed to get his friend who works with Lucas Films to come be our AV person at the wedding! And his cousin who is with the camera crew at Discovery Travel - Lonely Planet Series will bring his team and come shoot the wedding for us!

I am very very overwhelmed and simply overjoyed! :)
