Movie Time!! - Marley & Me

Last Saturday, my Zharfan & I went to watch Marley & Me at GSC mid valley - utilizing free tix that I won from cinemaonline. My hubby works on Saturday, so I had sweet time with my lil boy - well, before I deliver my lil baby and start my confinement sooon...

The movie is one of my fav genre - combination of family life, lil romance, pet, and my fav actress Jeniffer Aniston. Hence, it is about a marriage and family and all the ups and downs that entails -- and how a beloved pet ie a Labrador dog named Marley can be an integral part.

Yes, I enjoyed watching it - it was awesome but at the end, when Marley was dying, i couldn't hold my tears from rolling down my cheeks - yup, I was crying..the scene was sad & so dramatic! (huh...I went out of the cinema with red eyes and wet cheeks)..Well written and well acted, it brings both laughter and tears - that sums up it all!!

From google search, I discovered that the movie is based on the memoir of Philadelphia Inquirer columnist John Grogan's life with his yellow Labrador retriever. The story is a collection of anecdotes about Marley running wild in Grogan's home and looks at the dog's 13-year life (he died two years ago).

Anyway, this is some of the synopsis that I got from the net:

"As the snow falls on their wedding night, newlyweds John and Jenny Grogan (OWEN WILSON and JENNIFER ANISTON) decide to leave behind the harsh winters of Michigan and head south to begin their new lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. They obtain jobs as journalists at competing local newspapers, buy their first home, and begin to make their way through the challenges of a new marriage, new careers and, possibly, the life-changing decision to start a family.

Unsure of his preparedness for raising children, John confesses his fears to his friend and fellow journalist Sebastian, who comes up with the perfect solution: John should get Jenny a puppy. "There’s nothing to it," says Sebastian. "You walk ‘em. You feed ‘em, you let ‘em out now and then."

John decided to adopt the cute, twelve pound yellow Labrador, who in no time at all, grows into a 100-pound steamroller of unbridled energy that turns the Grogan home into a disaster area. He flunks obedience school, chews off dry-wall, takes a bite out of the sofa, overturns garbage cans, steals a Thanksgiving turkey, consumes pillows and flowers, drinks toilet water, and chases the UPS guy. Even a newly-purchased, expensive necklace isn’t safe from Marley’s voracious antics.

Amidst the mayhem he generates through the years, Marley sees the Grogans through the ups and downs of family life, through job and home changes, and most of all, through the myriad challenges of a growing family. As John and Jenny come to realize, Marley – “the world’s worst dog” – somehow brings out the best in them."

The Lil Caliph Online Store – Some latest updates & exciting activities

I guess this is my last entry for the Lil Caliph Online Store – obviously for the reason of competing for the contest “ Blog Your Way To win 4D/3N Holidays From The LILCALIPH.com!”

Heyy…its easy to post an entry or even a number of entries, no doubt about that... but..... the determining factor to the winning blog is judged based on the most creative way of promoting TheLilCaliph.com on the blog…which is not THAT EASY THOUGH….

I have been a regular reader, visitor to the Lil Caliph Online Store (& one of their happy customers too!!), and the latest update is that, they are organizing a mommy-baby exciting event!! It is “Bumps and Mums Weekend”

“In conjunction with the coming Bumps and Mums Weekend at Bangsar Village on the 4th April 2009, LilCaliph need a few mothers to volunteer to babywear their babies/toddlers on Hotslings in the Babywearing Show. The show will starts at 2pm.
Interested mothers who are used to babywearing and comfortable doing it please email Lil Caliph at info@thelilcaliph.com ( possibly before 23rd March 2009) Lil Caliph welcome anyone especially those who have purchase Hotslings from them. They will even loan their pouches on that day so no worries if you haven’t had one.”

Sounds sooo interesting & tempting for mommies who intend to visit & be part of the event!!
So dear mommies & friends, please block your calendar for 4th April yer…I’d definitely attend it if I’m still in Kl by that time…(my tummy is like a balloon now…just waiting for the right time….)

Before I end my entry, once again, my heartiest gratitude to the Lil Caliph (TLC) for organizing the contest, which is due sooon in few days time (31st March)!! My continuous, full support & good wishes are always with u, so all the best to Molina (the owner of Lil Caliph)…so proud to have a bizwomen in this competitive online biz realm! (this one is an honest & sincere remark…not ‘bodek2’ one …)

“Famous logo signifies customer care,
With guaranteed delivery everywhere,
Mother-baby stuff in modern style, TLC wins by a mile,
With quality so high, it’s my favourite buy!”

Well, it goes without saying that all mommies bloggers who have joined the contest would have the highest hope & dream to be one of the winners…so am I!!!!!…hopefully & prayfully there’s rezeki for me to shine in the winners’ list, so that I could share the winning prize with my dear ones (hubby, my boy & my lil baby in tummy who’s expected to be with us middle of next month!!) Insya Allah, Ameen…

Now…dreaming of winning – Langkawi...here I come...
“Tropical paradise, plenty to do,
Glorious destination, dream comes true!”
Oh island in the sun,

Movie Time!! - Geng : The Adventure Begins

Last weekend, my Zharfan, hubby and I went to watch the above movie - utilising the GSC vouchers that I won from Kotex contest (Ceria Setiap Bulan -December '08).

I have read a few good reviews about the film, so I really llok forward to watch the movie. My Zharfan was equally excited as he is the fans of Upin & Ipin ;)
We arrived there 45 minutes before the show time...and guess what..the tix were almost sold out...except the first front row seats...we had no other choice, so we took up that seats...huh...

The movie has set its won record by being the longest showing movie in Malaysian cinema...It has been officially released on 12th Feb 2009...yet after one month, it is still showed, with almost full house still...awesome!

After getting our popcorn and ice lemon tea drink, we entered the theater ..Wow….it was already almost full, full with people, all family with kids! This movie must be special then.. So, we sat and enjoyed the movie.

Yep, I enjoyed it very much. The movie was marvellous!. Although it was not as excellent as Disneyland cartoon movies, but this product is for me the best Malaysian cartoon movie so far. Well done to the director and everybody who have worked very hard making this movie.I must say that for a meager budget of RM4 million, the first Malaysian 3d animation film is not just a good film, but an outstanding one.I think this is a proud moment for Malaysian cinema and also the local animation industry in particular. I foresee that this film might grab some awards in the upcoming whatever film festival in Malaysia or maybe even overseas. There was enough humor and suspense and positive message. Plus lil bit of touching scene when Oopet has to say bye2 to Rajoo...

So here is the synopsis that I copy paste from Les' Copaque web:
"Something disturbs the peace in the village of Kampong Durian Runtuh. Villagers tell of a fearsome beast lurking at night but no one dares to find out what it is until Badrol, Lim and their newfound friends stumble upon the very heart of the mystery itself. A small peculiar animal, not native of the forest befriends Rajoo and brings the whole gang into an adventure deep into the exotic Malaysian rainforest filled with dangerous animals including an age old mystical giant snake. Join the gang as they embark on a journey of action and adventure set upon the warm atmosphere of a Malaysian village enclosed by landscapes of greenery"

Being an avid, keen traveler myself..I have a lot to share..

One of the most important stuff is the preparation ie things to bring along in order to have a smooth journey and wonderful trip..

When I was single, nothing much to worry, other than clothes and camera...
but the moment I entered the world of motherhood, things to pack for travelling doubles up, in fact the luggage/bag becomes triple in weight!!

Kidz Banz sunglass.

and it comes in the lovely case
Kidz Banz Sunglass Case in Blue Train

And being the mommy cum driver, it's a bless to have this..

Guess why I choose to make an entry on traveling...
Simply because the holiday packages offered by the Lil Caliph in their New Year 2009 Contest!! I simply can't stop thinking about it!! and dreaming of going to these places too...Insya Allah, who knows there's luck and rezeki for me to be one of the winners...Ameen..
