Madamoiselle: Dan in Real Life

I know, I've just watched the "Vantage Point" yesterday, and today, I went to watch another movie again---> "Dan In Real Life". Talk about movie addict!

I was not sure with what the story was all about. We just crashed into the cinema and had only two choices to see. It's either, the 1hr 40 mins"Dan In Real Life" or the 2hrs 10 mins "Atonement". Since today, we didn't intend to have a long dragging movie and just needed a laugh, we chose the first one. The guy in the poster looked very familiar but I didn't realise it until the show starts. Dang! If I knew, it was him, I would have not watch it. Remember, the guy from the TV series "The Office". Yes, The irritating boss who thought he's the best boss and a motivator.And Yes, I hate that series, and as much annoying it is in "The office", He is indeed very annoying in "Dan In Real Life". Somehow, his characters in both shows are very similar. or maybe that was just him.

So, for my review on this movie, truthfully, despite the boring start of the show, I slowly get to like it by the end of it. It's really hard for me to finally like it but somehow, they manage to make me not hating it at the last half hour of the show. And for sure, It does make you in tears. The movie is more about the story of love, family bondings, trust, and life. I like the main point that the movie is trying to deliver, I just wish it's not Steve Carell. His character just so reminded me of "The-Boss-in-The-Office". One thing for sure, I hate it when he says 'WOW!' He did that all the time in "The Office" too. My overall rating for this one is a 5.5 out of 10.

Dan Burns is a single father who dedicates his life to his children, but one day he meets Marie at a bookstore. They get to know each other, but then Dan finds out that Marie is actually dating his brother, Mitch Burns.

Madamoiselle: Vantage Point

Finally, I got time to go to the movies again and this time, went for "Vantage Point" that I heard so many times that it was a really good one. Indeed, for me, it was a thumbs up. My sisters weren't please enough with the rewinds and flashbacks but I don't mind about it cause it does gave a unique experience to view different points of what is going on with the scenes. As more flashbacks were played, the more you'll get the answers to all the confusions and it's true if you don't see from all aspects, you'll tend to make wrong assumptions and the results were actually surprising. Still, the downside of it is the ending of the movie, like I went like "That's just it?!!" But then, I also think that it's a clever plot. Overall, I rate it a 8 out of 10.


Movie Pic

Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox) are Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war on terror.

There is also Rex (Sigourney Weaver) an American TV news producer who is reporting on the conference. We follow each person's perspective of the same 15 minutes before and immediately after the shooting to get to the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt.

Madamoiselle : Weekend Food Galore?

I've made this 2 days back. A new experiment and a knock out..hahaha.. I love cheese, I love chocolate and this is my new love. A simple mini chocolate cupcakes frosted with cream cheese. Brought this to my siblings, and I've already been booked for a baking session this Friday. Well, actually, I've already been booked when baking this hehehe... I'm hoping to try new recipes in the future. I wish I got all the time and a well equipped kitchen to accommodate my new love affair..."Baking & Cooking." Ghee....

Last night, Dad knocked on my door. He asked me if I could make pizza for dinner. *chuckle* That was a surprise for me actually. He hardly makes requests. I can hardly even treat him for a jolly good eating out without him saying to me " Try not to waste your money and save it." Dads!!

So I made his favourite "Honey-Chicken Pizza". Luckily, the pizza base was still available in the fridge. I just have to make the toppings. But that's just not it. I got into a mood to prepare more. I had a baguette sitting in the fridge and my mom loves garlic bread. So I made that too and in addition to that, made Baked Tuna-Mayo topping for the left over baguettes for varieties. And I end up making baked mashed potato too. That's what we get to have for dinner last nite. Not that we always have this :) Unfortunately, I only managed to snap my Baked Tuna Mayo Baguettes to show here.

With lots of Cheese...nyummm...

Oh, Since I'm talking about food, I made these for lunch too, yesterdays lunch that is. Didn't take pictures of the whole food, just the ones I made though hehe...


Home-made salad dressing

Steamed Tom Yam Fish

I gotta go now. I'm not feeling that cheery actually. That's why I need to post this food galore ... just to keep my mind away from unwanted things. Anyway, I hope you have a better days than mine. Take care peeps.

Au revoir! Bon Nuit!

Madamoiselle : The Dream Gadget Meme

I've been given a "homework" by the 'latingzz' teacher Miss Zhoe Wynz and I'm trying to finish it up a.s.a.p before teacher-teacher smack me hard on my bubbly baby cheeks. hahaha.. Okay, it's just a tag of my Dream Gadget that i've wanted to get them, one day or never. Hmmm... That, made me think...errr...I want everything..hahaha... talk about Greed!!

Truthfully, I've already neglected the knowledge of knowing the latest gadgets that I really want these days. Not that I'm saying I already have it all, but all I can say is, I'm already soooo sooo outdated with this gadget thingy. I used to buy those magazines of "STUFFS" and err..I forgot the other gadget mags that I used to read a lot. And I had always drooled over the featured stuffs in those mags just like any normal guy would drool over "Playboy". *cracks!*

Anyway, I know I had always dreamt of having this one thing that I had always liked. Actually, it's not a thing, it's more of a brand that I had always liked and I know I could hardly ever get it unless I'm super rich. Definitely gonna get it when I'm super-duper rich. I know, I know, such a taste are just dreams. Dreams might come true, you know..*wink*.

Well, I have always been fascinated with Audio-Visual and I had always wanted to have my own big TV area that I can watch like in the movies and the sound quality of a big Theatre. Yes, I wanted a Home Theatre. Not a normal one, but really modern, sleek, high quality, funky, unclustered types. And I know there's one such brand that really matches it all.

Ever heard of Bang & Olufsen? Normally known as B&O for short. I love their stuffs. I had fallen in love with them since my first touch, feel, and my first sight of them few years back. It was definitely tested and proven. They always had such sleek designs and when you play the music, it felt complete. You don't need a junky big woofers to have such beautiful heart thumping beat. The designs were very original and other brands have been trying to copy their styles but never come near to perfect.

Beosound 3200, my love at first sight, feel and listen.

I found a clip of advertisement on their product in youtube. You should see how cool they are.

I wish! Oh I wish! For more information about B&O, here's the "LINK"

So, who should I tag this to... Tagging this to LB, Babette and Frustrated Writer :) Tell me your dream gadgets. Hope this won't be a big task for you.

Note: This post is not a promotional ads, I'm just recommending my views of my favourite stuffs..hehehe.. and I was tagged so this is my answer for the tag. Sorry to confuse any of you if you think I'm advertising this hahaha... Okay, B&O, I think I should have credits for this ;p.

Madamoiselle: Make Love, Not War

Make Love, Not War!!!

Catchy, ain't it? Don't you think it's better to 'Make Love' rather than to 'Make War'? Catch my drift? LOL..okay I'm not trying to make fun of this, it's just coincidental *grin*.

Make love not War
"When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace. " The Dalai Lama

Seriously, This is a great meme. I was tagged by her highness, The perfume Queen herself, none other but Mariuca, @ the Genie princess.

I'm giving my full support on this meme and eventhough, some of you might think that this meme is just another meme without a purpose. Think twice, a small thing can change the world even from its tiniest effort. War had been around for decades around the globe and we'd never know were it'll landed next. Think about yourself, think about your families, think about your friends, then think if all of you were placed in those War zone areas. It's never a good scenario. If you can't imagine that, then just watch the movie "Rambo 4" and imagine you were one of the villagers, [not Rambo himself ;p].. okay, that was one lame example but it works, right? Nobody wants to be in that situation. Innocent people were sacrificed and we should be united to prevent this. So, even if we could not do a big thing about it, we could at least, remind ourselves that war was never kind and we all need to make LOVE.

The rules:

1. If you get tagged or not (and want to play along), take some minutes to meditate about love and peace, pray for countries that are facing troubles, for those people you love and those you don’t.
2. Write a post with links to blogs that you think would like to participate.
3. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

Wow! Did I just type all that? Okay , I think I've been quite patriotic with our National today that I got carried away..hahaha.. that's new :) A perfect timing to get this meme eih!

Anyhow, I 'd like to tag this meme to the peeps of the bloggings aka:

Zhoe, Syii, Irmak & Alexis

Madamoiselle: The Eye

After a long baking session, I managed to reward myself to watch a new movie "The Eye" at The Mall Cinema in Gadong today. There were actually 2 movies that I wanted to watch but to the last minute, I chose "The Eye" because Jessica Alba was in it and I just love her.

A warning I would like to tell you out there, if you have a problem with heart attack, Don't watch this. It's a horror-suspense movie, horror wasn't the issue but the suspense was made you jump off your seat and it's not once or twice but several times. hehehe.. especially if you're watching it with high blast volumes like the cinema does. ;p

My say, I like it. I thought it would be predictable and would end in a non satisfying way but I was wrong. It went well and ended just perfectly....for me that is. Jessica had played her role wonderfully and I would have enjoyed the whole movie if the guys behind me would just zipped their lips all the way. It was rather annoying with all their stupid remarks although I do not understand one bit what they were saying cause it sounded 'indian'. By the end of the movie, I get to see the faces but I was confused. They looked like a 'Filipino' but their conversation sounded very 'Indian'. Totally confused!

Anyway, my overall rating for this movie is a 7.5 out of 10.

Sydney Wells is an accomplished concert violinist who has been blind since a childhood tragedy. Sydney undergoes a double corneal transplant, and her sight is restored. But Sydney's happiness is short-lived as unexplainable shadowy and frightening images start to haunt her. Are they a passing aftermath of her surgery, Sydney's mind adjusting to sight, a product of her imagination, or something horrifyingly real? As Sydney's family and friends begin to doubt her sanity, Sydney is soon convinced that her anonymous eye donor has somehow opened the door to a terrifying world only she can now see.

Starring: Jessica Alba, Alessandro Nivola, Parker Posey, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tamlyn Tomita

Genres: Suspense/Horror, Thriller and Remake
Running Time: 1 hr. 37 min.

Madamoiselle: I need a KIT KAT.

I had a 'peace' of mind today.... Just for a short while. Well, I had to be thankful anyway, It's better than none. Despite the 'odds' of what had happened from the start of 2008, I finally felt 'soothing' and 'calm' for a little while and it felt nice. My insecurities had stressed me out for the changes that was suddenly made and everyone was hoping for a bright sunny day to soon reveal itself from the dark clouds. I hope for more better days. :)

Remember this ad slogan,


I need my kit kat now.hmmmm....

Anyhow, today, would be a very short post. Good Nite everyone. May your dreams are happy tonite. Sleep tight!

Madamoiselle: Brownies, Muffins & Cuppies

Did some baking session the other day for some friends' request. A friend wanted me to make a Brownie, another wanted me to bake Cuppies. Not to disappoint any of them, I made those the other day and discovered a liking of muffins. Some of you might have seen my brownies and cuppies on my previous baking sessions post on the Food Talk categories. The muffin is, however, another new tested recipe.

Here's some pictures of my bakes.

hehehe..Dusted a lil too much of the confectioners sugar.
But to taste, it wasn't that sweet at all.

My Buttercream Choco Cupcakes. Still not good with the frosting. Boy! needs a lot of practise.

Finally, my first Blueberry Muffins.

My Blueberry Muffins were a blast to my surprise. Everyone loves it. That's a compliment for an amateur baker like me hehhee.. Honestly, presentation wise, I'm not good in that, but most of my friends love the taste of my bakings for its mild sweetness and the taste of it. Well, I hope my learning of it gets better. As a food lover, I also want my self-made food as good as my taste too right hahaha...

Since when I'm into this foody thingy? Well, I've just started into "The Kitchen" actively early last year. My interest came when we had this mini breakfast and sometimes lunch gathering in the office and we normally brought our own food to share with. I like to make and start learning foods that are of my favourite. So mostly, my close friends and colleagues are my food testers for my baking and cooking sessions. I'm glad most of them likes my "food-work".

Anyway , When I made those food above,
I intentionally baked more than as requested because I wanted to send it to my Poq sister whom had never tasted my bakings. Thankx to my Poq sister, I suddenly have a bigger request for the brownies. She shared it to her colleagues and they like it. So another baking session will set for tomorrow evening and I'm not sure if I can juggle my time if there's more to come. Ho, boy!

This is example of communicating and building communities and friendships within the blogosphere, which has no boundaries or limitations."

Thank you so much once again Hanna for remembering me as one of your wonderful award recipients. It's a great award I really appreciated.

Finally, Last but not least, My heartiest Thanks goes to my blogging partner in kambangness, ZhoeWynz, who has given me the chance to pick any awards from hers.

Okay, I know that is almost half of the awards she got. So it's just a half of my greediness then hahaha.. Well, anyway, thank you so much Zhoe, you 're definitely one of my best blog buddies and I appreciate all those comments, tagging, awards, interests that we share all this time.

I would like to Thank everyone for giving me support and comments, for dropping by to this humble blog of mine that keep me alive in this blogosphere. Without you all, Madamoiselle ver 2 would be another plain boring dairy of everyday mumbles. Thank you everyone. I love you all.

End of speech.

Hahaha..... This is speech of course. I'm not tagging anyone this time. To prove my ever greediness..NOT!! Well, I've got something else in mind and I want to come up with something special someday. hehe Not sure with what yet but something. Not a promise though coz I may just forget about this{ol fool!} and end up being too busy. Oh cut it out. I'm babbling.

Okay, Au Revoir peeps!

Madamoiselle:Google in love & Jumper.

Awww.... just look at those two old couple walking hand in hand on google. Aren't they just sooo cute? Romantic I'd say. hahaha... okay enough of the lovey thingy..

I'd just came back from the movies. This time, I get to watch the "Jumper".

I've been looking forward for this one after seeing it's trailer few times back. There were surprisingly quite a lot of people in the cinema today. Well, I guess the "Jumper" trailers do get peoples attention and expected it something out of an extraordinary. What I can say about this movie?

It is indeed an unusual story. It's kinda cool if you can jump from one place to another. If only it's real, hah! Anyway, I can't say much, although the movie was suppose to be cool, I somehow, felt that the storyline has something missing and incomplete. I'm not sure what but the ending is also not giving me any satisfaction so I wasn't really enjoying this one as much as I had with it's trailer. The only good thing about it is Hayden Christensen is sooo cute. hehehe...My overall rating for this is a 6 out of 10.

A genetic anomaly allows a young man to teleport himself anywhere. He discovers this gift has existed for centuries and finds himself in a war that has been raging for thousands of years between "Jumpers" and those who have sworn to kill them.

Madamoiselle: The diary #9

The Diary ~ C'est La Vie ~

Dear Diary,

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.

Love is in the air.
I am still with my own self
And in his place is irreplaceable.

Such a feeling is inevitable.
When loneliness creeps,
And those endless nights to sleep,
Memories came,
Just like a movie.. so to speak.

Am not desperate,
Neither am I in a hurry,
But isn’t it nice
to have somebody to share
and have all the love and care?

Star Light, Star Bright
First Star I see tonight
I wish I may
I wish I might
My loving star will come tonight. :p

Madamoiselle : Realize.

"I woke up in the cold morning,
only to hear raindrops splattering by my window,
the sound of the usual chirpings of little birdies had long gone
whilst the sun shied itself behind the gloomy clouds of dawn.

I turned on my jukebox,
there plays a calmingly tune of a strumming guitar,
echoes beautifully behind the great voice of Caillat,
phrasing repeatedly her "Realize" of love undeniably."

It's been raining for the past few days. I love waking up in the cold morning, going to work in the drizzling rain, smelling the fresh moist air, and it felt soothing when listening to Colbie Cailet songs.

One of the songs that I like most is "Realize". Here's the lyrics and video clip of the song. Don't you just love it?! For more videos or infos of Colbie, you can check it out on here.

Madamoiselle: Fun Donuts

How many times had I wanted to get those, that's how many times I had turned myself away, avoiding the never ending queues that wasted my holy time. Today, however, was the day, that I determined to go ahead and follow my heart..err..more of my tummy actually. I want to get those, and I got that exactly!

Finally, I bought my first pack of Fun Donuts after neglecting so many attempts to get it but was only disappointed by the long queues that I don't want to get stuck with. Call me Lazy!

So what makes this "New-in-Town" Donut shop the latest craze of our lil' small town? Their donuts are absolutely soft, fluffy, and best of all the sweetness are just mild. Goodie... Dunkin' Donuts are way too sweet for the tooth and this one is just alright. Better still, it's not even oily. Okay enough of promos. I'm munching off my last piece away.

Bon Nuit!!

CJ7 vs Kung Fu Dunk

-=Warning: This may be a very long post.=-

You may probably have watched both of these movies by now, but if you don't, let me share my point of view. :p Okay, as usual my reviews always sux big time but I'm telling you this anyway..hehehe...

CJ7...for my first impression seeing the trailer, I've made up my mind that I'm gonna hate it. Despite it looked funny when I saw the kid screaming crazily, I thought the movie seems to be too "Fake-ey" if there's such a word. Then I watched the 2nd version of the trailer and saw this cute lil' green thingy and I said to myself, well that is cute, could it be funnier than I thought? With 'Kung Fu Dunk' playing on the same day, I was not really that interested to watch CJ7. But as a movie addict, I wanted to watch both so I decided to do one thing. Watch the boring movie first than watch the awesome one later. Meaning, if the first one was that bad, at least I enjoy the next movie and feels better. If I did the other way, I might have just regret the later part and whine all about it. Worst plan, I intended to watched both on the same day.

Unfortunately, when me & Poq sister arrived at the cinema, Kung Fu Dunk [KFD] was already played half an hour earlier and CJ7 would be playing in 10 minutes time but could not watch the KFD continuously after that as the times of show had clashed. We decided to watch CJ7 then and catch up with KFD today.

How good can CJ7 be? My call: Hilariously Cute! I found it very funny, Cute and Sad. The story focused more on the kid and the Cute alien dog rather than Stephen Chow so anyone who expects it as another of Stephen's Chow comedic movie, it ain't much the same. This time Stephen Chow can be considered as the dessert of the story. The little boy is amazingly funny and he has a lot to laugh at especially with his thousandth expressions. Such an adorable kiddo. What is more adorable is the bubbly cutey, squeezy "alien dog"called CJ7.

I wish I had that lil thing. It's just too cute to handle.hahaha.. The movie was simple but good for laughs. The sad thing about the movie is..err... should I spoil this to you guys? Oh what the heck! Don't continue if you don't want to know cause I'm telling you this, the saddest part of the story is when the little boy's father died in an accident at work and the boy cried so much it definitely touched your heart. Especially when he said, he was so tired and just wanted to sleep and said that he knows his father will come back when he wakes up the next day. I could not stop crying myself seeing that whole scene. Don't believe me? I even heard a guy sniffing loudly on the same row we sat. People are in tears! Very touchy you know. :p

The Father & Son bonding will set you in tears.

On the whole, I can say I love this movie, unexpectedly outstand my previous judgement. I rated it for myself an 8.5 out of 10. Unbelievable eih!

Okay I got a surprising news I've just found out. That lil' kid whose a boy in the movie was actually a Girl in real life, Xu Jiao, a 9-year-old little girl from the Chinese mainland. Wow, no wonder 'he' looks really adorable. :p

Ti is a poor father who works all day, everyday at a construction site to make sure his son Dicky Chow can attend an elite private school. Despite his father's good intentions to give his son the opportunities he never had, Dicky, with his dirty and tattered clothes and none of the "cool" toys, stands out from his schoolmates like a sore thumb. Ti can't afford to buy Dicky any expensive toys and goes to the best place he knows to get new stuff for Dicky--the junk yard! While out "shopping" for a new toy for his son, Ti finds a mysterious orb and brings it home for Dicky to play with. To his surprise and disbelief, the orb reveals itself to Dicky as a bizarre "pet" with extraordinary powers. Armed with his "CJ7" Dicky seizes this chance to overcome his poor background and shabby clothes and impress his fellow schoolmates for the first time in his life. But CJ7 has other ideas and when Dicky brings it to class, chaos ensues.
Genres: Action/Adventure, Art/Foreign, Comedy and Science Fiction/Fantasy
Running Time: 1 hr. 26 min.

Kung Fu Dunk... Finally I watched it just today, and I already heard so many good thumbs up review of this movie before watching it. I, myself, was excited after watching its trailers. So what's my review on this one? Okay let me tell you the good stuffs, I love the Kung Fu thingy, the choreography of the movie, I love the times when Jay Chou had his Kung Fu fights at the big dragon club, I love the way he threw the tin cans to the bin, I love the way he plays the basketball, I love the Kung Fu song they play in the movie and I love most, are the two handsome Japanese looking guys that are in his Basketball team. *Drools* hehehe.. Bo-Lin Chen & Baron Chen are definitely a drool, a Taiwanese if not mistaken and Bo lin got a BLOG that i don't understand. Teeheee!! .

If that's the good stuff, what's the bad? Well, if you are looking for a hilarious movie, this one's not it. Its funny but not hilarious. It made me smile, a few laughs but not enjoying my laughs that much as CJ7. The action was great , Jay Chou do acted coolly. In the movie, he was sort of an"innocently arrogant" lad but you just couldn't hate him. He's good with his moves but of course, the movie has this typical Hong Kong aura movie. I don't know how to describe it but it's a bit typical. Whatever. I like it though and I rate this a 7.5 out of 10.

Shi-Jie (Jay Chou), grew up in a martial arts school and is well-trained in kung-fu. With his kung-fu skills and good reflexes, Shi-Jie excels in basketball by mastering the slam dunk technique. Wang-Li (Eric Tsang), who is trying to locate Shi-Jie's real family, invites him to join the university's basketball team in hope of making some money. Shi-Jie faces new challenges while trying to blend in with the basketball team members Ting-Wei (Chen Bo-Lin) and Xiao-Lan (Baron Chen). With the upcoming basketball championship and the appearance of Li-Li (Charlene Choi), will the team members set aside their differences and personal feelings for the love of the game?

To my fellow kambangness Zhoe, I guess this review shocked you, I know, somehow I like CJ7 more than KFD. Probably because I needed a laugh, big time now hahaha... but it's just a point lesser so it's not much of a difference. Each has its good point, and I do agree with you those 2 lads in 'KFD' are such a cutey..hehehe...

Madamoiselle: Random post

It had been 2 weeks of 'hyper' with a lot of things I had to do and finally, I can rest! Tired!! When it finally ends, I could only feel aches on my body as if I've been doing a sudden intensive workout! I am sooo totally drained out.Phew! Luckily, today's a holiday and waking up early was not in my list this morning. I got up just in time for a Festive visit cum free lunch and more ang pows. hahaha...

Anyway, I'm in love with this flower.It's a Chrysanthemums. I am not a flower type of girl but seeing this, made me fall in love. Beautiful things just makes you happy and this flower does makes me happy. I love the way it blooms and it's been sitting in my room blooming happily for 3 days already. Here's some pose of my new baby... :p

Beautiful ain't it? It has been posing around my room and I took lots of snaps before it wilts in the next few days. :p Got it just to replace my previous gloomy times.

What's New??

I went to Hua Ho Delima yesterday and spotted a new bakery shop. It was perfectly in front of Hua Ho, and they had "ORANGE" all over the place, call it strategic. You won't miss this place. It's called "LOF Bakery". Cool name I'd say.

So far I 'lof' it. The place is simple and spacious and nice. Yes, we need spacious bakeries please. Some bakeries are just too small to fit the crowds. The cakes are a beauty and the prices are affordable. Haven't tried it though but the buns and muffins were nice. I love their donuts!

What's in the movies?

It's the chinese movie mania this week as the Chinese New year falls today. The long awaited Stephen Chow's comedy 'CJ7' is now on the show and so is Jay Chou's latest movie "Kung Fu Dunk". Coincidentally, their sir names sounded the same and their movies were played on the same day. I love Jay Chou's songs especially from the 2002 album ...if I'm not mistaken. I already forgot the name. Anyhow, I have to see these 2 movies and planning to see one of them tomorrow. I guess I'll be watching the funny CJ7 first.

p.s : Trinity, your tag is on the way..hehehe..I'll post it once done eih..Sorry for the delay :)
