Monday Ha-Ha & KungFu Panda

Went to watch Kungfu Panda with the kids yesterday in 1 Utama and in one word, I would describe the show as....FRIGGIN' BRILLIANT! Oh. That's two words. Ah well.
I don't remember the last time I laughed out loud so many times at a kiddy movie, frankly but the fact that many other adults were laughing along with their kids in the theatre made me feel less awkward. To me, whatever the surgical-magical-technical technology they used to make the movie seem totally irrelevant because for once, the digital technology, to me, paled in comparison to the script. The script was brilliant. Totally genius as it manages to cover humor, culture, moral and everything else in between.
The last time I laughed at a kid movie was Chicken Little singing 'we are the champions' off tune. And I think it was more like chuckle. But this time, I completely gave myself up to laughter when the Panda was training with his Sifu and fighting over the last 'pow' (dumpling).
And of course, it had a lot to do with how 'normal' and loveable Po (the Panda) is! He's just so......us! And oh, I loved it when he kept stuffing his face up with food and then when others give him the 'no wonder you're fat' look, he's give his own look back...which is the 'what? I'm hungry!' look!
There were too many favorite parts in the movie. We're definitely getting the video because I love it, the kids love it and the kids asked me 'Mom, can we get the video?' halfway through the movie. As we exited 1 Utama, we walked past Speedy and my kids excitedly pointed to the poster of Kungfu Panda and shouted, "They have the CD, mom! They have the CD! Let's go get it".
I looked at them and said, "Wow We just finished the movie, kids" and spotted the 'soundtrack' word on top of the poster. The kids were disappointed when I told them that the video will not be out until a bit later.
If you've not watched it, go go GO! Highly recommended.

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
