Movie Review: Big Hero 6 (2014)

7:00 AM

Hi!

Before anybody mentions it, I am not a movie enthusiast. I just happened to have time to watch movies. Haha. Plus I had another movie on Tuesday night. Can't wait to blog about it.

I went to watch Big Hero 6 with my friend, Ilah on last Sunday. We spoilt ourselves by watching it in 3D! Yay!!

SPOILER ALERT
(Please skip to the last image, which is almost to the end of this post. Thank you.)

Meet Baymax, a hug-able marshmallow.

Nah, I'm kidding.

The story starts with a boy, Hiro Hamada in what seems like his first Bot Fight. Little did the opponent know though, Hiro has a kick-ass little robot.

With such an innocent smiley face on the little robot, I thought Hiro would lose. Then head spins and an evil smirk is on the face of the robot. Kick-ass little robot style! It's a thrill to watch it move!

But uh-oh, the opponent is a sore loser. Booo~

Tadashi, Hiro's older brother comes and pulls Hiro away from danger but yeah, they still end up at the police station.

Being stubborn and energetic, Hiro immediately decides on his next bot fight. Tadashi cunningly brings him to the university of nerds. Oh yeah, it is a nerd school.

There, Hiro meets Go Go Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Fred. Plus, he sees their inventions, well, except for Fred's. Cool inventions! 

Then Tadashi introduces Baymax, a robot programmed to heal the sick and injured.

Super cute and adorable really.

After that, Hiro meets Professor Callaghan. Interested by the lab and meeting the professor, Hiro decides to enter the same university.

And he creates the most awesome robot, a microbot.

Controlled by a neural-cranial transmitter, the microbots prove to be a hit at the exhibition and earns Hiro a spot in the university.

However, a fire breaks out the exhibition hall. Tadashi, hearing that the professor is still inside the hall, rushes in to rescue him.

An explosion and Hiro is left staring at the hall in flames.

After the funeral of the professor and Tadashi, Hiro secludes himself and refuses to go to the university.

While picking up his little robot, a part drops and he lets out an 'Ow'.

Suddenly, Baymax activates from his brother's room. Hiro, still in his moody attitude, nonchalantly tells Baymax anything including yes to follow the sole's microbot direction.

Frantically, Hiro runs after Baymax and they stop at an old abandoned warehouse.

Puzzled, Hiro decides to explore the warehouse. He finds out that his microbots are being manufactured in thousands. 

A man in a kabuki mask appears and controls the microbots.

Hiro barely escapes with Baymax. He tries to report to the police station but the policeman seems not to believe him much.

Frustrated, Hiro returns home and decides to track down the masked man. He improves Baymax by uploading the sensors for karate. Hurriedly, they return to the warehouse but it is empty.

However, the sole mircobot leads them to the port. The masked man appears from the sea, carrying a part of a machine.

Tadashi's friends arrive at the port and helps Hiro escape from the masked man.

Hiro is determined to find out the masked man's identity. He suggests his friends to change themselves into something more. Hiro starts inventing stuffs based on their inventions, using it as weapons.

While testing the flight ability of Baymax's newest improvements, they find out that the masked man is on an island.

The group hurries there.

They find the control room and watch a rewinding of a failed experiment involving a transporter. A woman pilot seemingly died in the experiment.

Suddenly, the masked man appears and fights with them.

The group fail to cooperate and when the masked man seems to win, Hiro is thrown into the masked man.

The mask falls off and reveals the face of the professor.

Shocked and angry, Hiro instructed Baymax to kill the professor. Baymax turns into a killer machine and pushes off anything in the way.

Honey Lemon manages to insert Tadashi's program back into Baymax and stop him. However, Baymax's sensors are damaged. Hiro, still angry, flies of back to his house and fixes the sensors. And he leaves the others on the island. Luckily, Fred has his helicopter ready to fly back.

Baymax tells Hiro that Tadashi is still here and replays Tadashi's recordings while inventing Baymax.

Touched, Hiro realizes his mistake.

They discover the connection for the professor's sudden evil personality in the recording of the failed experiment. The woman pilot is the professor's daughter. The professor, unable to accept her death, blames it on Krei.

The professor attacks Krei at the launch of a new building. Hiro and the gang come and tries to reason with the professor. 

However, the professor is adamant. He wants revenge and fights with Hiro and the rest.

The professor is winning the fight when Hiro realizes that the microbots are being pulled into the machine. He tells the others to think from another angle to help them escape and smash the connected microbots so that the microbots disconnect and gets suck into the machine.

The professor loses but the machine is still working. 

Suddenly, Baymax said that he senses a life form from the machine; a woman.

Hurriedly, Hiro and Baymax fly into the machine and find the ship of the pilot.

While they are maneuvering towards the exit, Baymax protects Hiro from an incoming huge debris.

The only way to get Hiro and the ship out is to use Baymax's rocket fist. 

Hiro and the ship got out from the machine just before it blows up.

The professor is taken to the police station and the gang disappears.

The next day, all seems normal and Hiro goes into his brother's room at the lab.

He takes out the remaining fist of Baymax and notices something in the fist. It's the program for Baymax.

Hiro constructs a new Baymax, exactly like the original one.

At then end of the movie, Hiro, Baymax and the gang decide to be the hero of the city.

The End.



I give too much spoilers, I know. But that's how interesting it is!

Verdict: 9/10

Because why did Tadashi had to die when he is so cute? Haha! This is a fun movie to watch. There was so much laughter in the cinema hall and you know the audience was enjoying it. 

Baymax, come here and be my hug-able marshmallow!

Oh if you want a cute Baymax to hold on, Sushi King is having a promotion.





Go watch now!

Bye and thanks for reading.

Product Review


I received the BOSS BOTTLED Eau de Toilette Spray (50ml) to review for my readers.
The design of the bottle is elegant and stylish. The cap is easy to use and is attractive.
The fragrance has a woody base with notes of apple, lemon and plum. There is also the added spice of cinnamon and clove. The addition of vanilla is contrasting to the spicy wood notes; a revolutionary intriguing ingredient.
Surprisingly, the ingredients blended well and gives off a soft yet masculine fragrance.

Movie Review: Interstellar (2014)

7:00 AM

Hi!

I went to watch Interstellar last Friday night.

... and I am still wondering what the movie is even now.

SPOILER ALERT 
(Please skip until the last image, which will be almost the end of this post. Thank you.)


Directed by Christopher Nolan, Earth is like a dry planet with storm dusts and most of the human are now farmers.

A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it's up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind.

So four selected explorers blast off into space. Their mission?

To find a suitable planet based on data from the other explorers who had left earlier.

First planet they landed on happened to have a huge time gap: 1 hour on the planet equals 7 years on Earth. If I remembered right.

Not only that, it was submerged in water and kept being in waves and waves of tsunami-like phenomenon. Damn, I sound clever. Wtf. 

After a mishap, they blasted back up and learned that time had indeed traveled faster while they were on the planet. 

That part seriously had me thinking. It is totally different to read and imagine it but to watch it happening? Seeing your son grow up into a man, marrying then having a baby; while you haven't aged in the slightest.

The second and supposedly the last planet to visit due to limited fuel, provided some villain-like plot into the movie. The explorer on that planet, lying for his own survival, decided to continue  his 'noble' mission by stealing the ship back to space. 

This part scared me. Okay, compression bla bla bla, that's all that got into my head. To see how serious the aftermath? Woah, I don't want anywhere near that incident. Admittedly my voice was too loud. Dumb T-chan making me feel guilty for being noisy. I can't help it if that part scared me. Right? Wtf.

Anyway, the two explorers who survived decided on a last ditch attempt on another planet near the black hole. Until one of them secretly wanted to enter into the ripped spacetime.

Okay, interesting part and still had me wondering. 

Gravity.

The explorer somehow ended up in some fourth dimensional space. Super unreal, I tell you and making me dizzy just looking at the screen.

Then using gravity, he moved the little hand of a watch to leave a Morse code of the coordinates of... Great, I forgot what those coordinates are for.

Well, after that unnerving part, he appeared floating in space and was rescued and is back on a bed.

Waking up and looking through a window, outside seemed ordinary enough but hey, there's a house upside down.

That moment... Wow. 

It is like knowing one of Doraemon's gadget came true. The anti-gravitational paint. Haha. Just kidding.

The movie ends with him deciding to travel back to find the lone explorer on the last planet.

The End.

One fun fact?

Please click on Interstellar and surf through the website. I stumbled into that website and let's just say, I am impressed. But still, I suck at anything physics. Haha.


Verdict: 8/10

I would love to watch it again, just so that some part of it sink enough into my brain. The phrase 'Time waits for no one' is really serious in this movie. 

Therefore, go watch it now!

Bye and thanks for reading.

Product Review: BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme

Product Review

I received the BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme Eau de Parfum (50ml) to review for my readers.
The BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme is a trio with BOSS NUIT Pour Femme and BOSS JOUR Pour Femme.
The design of the bottle is similar to that of BOSS NUIT Pour Femme and BOSS JOUR Pour Femme. However, instead of the sleek darkness of the former, this bottle has a delicate mellow pink shade and the simple, light design of the latter. The crystal lid is precision cut, and the gold band adds a sophistication to the bottle.
Top notes of cactus blossom capture the invigorating green freshness of the desert plant, providing a unique and modern element to this new fragrance.

A Letter to 16 year old Me

6:00 PM

Hi.

I actually saw this #letterto16yo treading on Dayre and wanted to type it out there.

But since my blog has been empty until half of the month, why not write it here? 

P.S: I did write some posts and scheduled them sparingly so it won't flood my blog. Haha.

So, what would I tell my 16 year old?

A Letter to 16 year old ME

Hi.

Great year you had last year. Don't worry, chances are only you yourself would remember what happened. Thankfully, you are better now even if you do get upset and angry when you remembered it occasionally later.

Guess what? You can't remember half of what happened which is the best thing to have amnesia  and your 23 year old here is talking gibberish. Hey, at least that didn't change much. Haha.

Anyway, 2014 is going to be about the best year you've had in your life time. Quite a lot of stuff to look forward to in 2014. But don't skip to this year if you happened to find a time machine there. Along the way, please trip and fall down. 

Because really, all those falls made you so much stronger.

Oh but you still can't control your tears. Damn annoying crybaby habit stuck whenever you face something hurtful or unpleasant. Haha.

Let me tell you what to expect in 2014.

  1. At last you got your driver's license! Okay, you might fail the first on-the-road test but you passed brilliantly on the second try. You were so happy to get that P. Wtf.
  2. You will have brilliant friends. Oh don't worry if you have a crush on one of your guy friends. Because you actually told him how you feel. But now you and him get along well as friends and you appreciate him as one of your closest friends.Plus, you get to be the therapist for your friend. Another close friend will be the cutest, most adorable lady that you wish you are a guy instead so you can love her to bits. Haha. Note to self: Keep in touch with them. You do miss them sometimes.
  3. You did your internship and guess what? You decided to start your first job there as well. Granted, you were actually doubting yourself. Should you be there or try seek somewhere else. Part of the reason for staying is because you had a friend there so it was reassuring. Another part is because you were still unsure what you were going to do in life. Until now, a part of you just wants to get into journalism or learn more about the language you depend your life on. Wtf you still despise those other languages for the reasons that some idiots look down on you.
  4. Another thing to note is that you are okay with being alone. Yes, some people will annoyingly say eating alone looks lonely but you are free to spend some time alone to think on your own. You will find that you get guilty when people ask you for lunch when actually you wanted to be alone. For now, you try to always be the first to ask so the guilt won't be on you.
  5. There was a reason you joined drama. Don't quit it, suck it up even if he is also in the drama team. That drama practices you had? They worth a lot to get you through your job. So don't quit it and enjoy it. Even if it did turned out to be unpleasant. But your job in the future requires some tactful drama. Believe me. Wtf.
  6. The guy you will meet and want to hold on has the one thing you really despised. But you still want to hold on to him. You will like him for who he really is because he seems like a kid. Haha. Even now, this 23 year old finds him annoyingly attractive. Oh before you meet him, you will meet some other guys. Go through them, break their feelings and yours in the process; let that be and you get stronger and know what you want in a guy.
  7. Did I tell you that you are going to be one of the luckiest lady in the world? Not about love, okay, maybe that part. But in 2014, especially near the end of 2014. You will feel so happy and glad that you are alive, to be here now.
And that, my dear, is why you should put up your chin and face the storm and rain.

Trust me, you are happier now than that previous year.

P.S.: I write honestly on my blog. Okay, maybe 80% honesty. If I'm to write 100% honesty, the guilt feeling creeps in because I don't want to offend anyone. Haha.

Foodiescapadee: Wadihana Islamic Kitchen & Steakhouse@Busana Mall

12:00 PM

On 4th November, my department had a lunch get-together at a new restaurant called Wadihana, at Level 3 of Busana Mall@Menara MARA.

Actually, the floor was originally a food court but has now been replaced by the restaurant. 

And I forgot to take some pictures of the new layout.

Let's see what they are serving.












I decided to try their Mocktail: Sweet Honey.

Sufficed to say that I won't be ordering it again as it is too sweet for me. But it had my favourite Honey Dew. Maybe if I ask them not to put the sweet syrup...

I had a tough time looking at the menu: Rice, Noodles, Western, Pasta or Steak...

Decided on this Alfredo.



Taste was so-so and the portion just right to make me full.

Verdict: 7/10
The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the service is prompt as well. Choice of food is interesting as this is my first visit to any of its outlet. Maybe I will try out the other food. Prices are a bit expensive.

Wadihana Islamic Kitchen & Steakhouse
