Black Swan

Black Swan... Angsa Hitam... haha.... So I watched this movie last nite... it is not alwayz that I would do a review on a movie... But this movie is soo interesting I decided to do a review on it... Haha...

Aku Angsa Hitam


So Black Swan, what is the movie about? No worries, I wont say much... Well it is basically about ballet chicks trying to get the lead role/Swan Queen. But this particular chick Nina (Natalie Portman) is kinda kook koo~ and starting to see things that is kinda unreal...


Overall the movie is really disturbing... there were scenes where blood is involved... crazy nail cutting scene... & also nail file stabbing into the face scene...hohoho....AND be warned, there were some awkward scenes... Awkward touchy touchy scenes....XD haha... Who would've thought that the ballet world could be so dark & twisted & touchy... when people say ballet, the first thing that comes to my mind is pink tutus & lil girls jumping here & there... XD


As for the dancing part, I'm no ballet expert... Okok I'm no dance expert... I cant even do pocho pocho correctly XD but i must say that the dancing is quite impressive... Ms. Portman & Ms. Kunis trained only for few months while other ballerinas took years to perfect their moves... I guess thats why she got her Oscar award for Best Actress. Lets just hope that she wont get the Oscar Best Actress Award curse... hohoho...


So Black Swan... in my opinion it is a good movie... disturbing, but good. But that is just my opinion. But here's some of the comments that my frenz gave me:
Badak Ong: I've lost my appetite... ( FYI for the first time in my life I heard this dude says that he have lost his appetite... haha)

Kuhan: Sick... twisted... awkward... not scary + psycho movie...

Kim: Its kinda disturbing la actually but other than that not bad la, it is unique in a way la..


Haha... yeap those are the people that went to watch the movie together with me... XD


So in conclusion, from my point of view: Angsa Hitam is about the obsession of being perfect... Nak jadi perfect sangat sampai jadi giler XD It is an interesting movie... quite scary, dark, sick & twisted... pendek kata: it is some sick shit! in a good way....

Overall I'll give it 4 stars... wah ceh ceh... XD

So Black Swan! Go watch it! But make sure that u are above 18 ok? Haha then do leave a comment on what u think about the movie... haha.. XD

Till the next post, buh bye!!!

Breakfast @ Calanthe Art Cafe

Ahh breakfast... the most important meal of the day... but yet I alwayz skip it EVERYDAY... XD I'm not really a breakfast person... since skool I never liked eating b'fast... Lazy... Plus it is way too early, n my tummy needs her beauty sleep to prepare herself for all the foodies for lunch, dinner & supper... XD The only reason why I'll eat b'fast is bcoz of my love ones... they ajak, saya pun makan loh... XD haha things I do for the people I love.. ^__^


So today! I went for b'fast~ Ajaked by my mom, pukul 9 lebih she woke me up ajak makan Tosai... I slept at 3-ish last nite watchin Bonnie & Clyde on TV2... I cant believe I'm sayin tis, but I think I have a lil crush on Clyde... Bad boy... me like ^__^ HAHA... ANYWAYZ... I was still in blur moment, but I still can say NO to my mom coz me no like Tosai... Wanna sambung tido but cant, So I just bangun oni loh~ Dah bangun, I suddenly feel like eating pancakes... Pancakes on a Sunday morning.... MMmmmm~ Then I remembered theres a cafe at Jonker called Orang Belanda Art Cafe that sells some yummy lookin pancakes, so I decided to bring my mom there... We LOOVE pancakes! But seriously, who doesnt?


So I bersiap2, then told my mom that I'll bring her go out makan pancake & I'll be drivin... ^__^ hehe then in the car she asked me "Makan at where?".... "Jonker", I replied.... LOLZ then x pasal2 kena pukul... She said "So far???? Tipu gua eh?"... Haha I just laughed and drive away...


Weather is really HOT... & sadly my baby Kancil punye air-cond rosak.... Hahaha so basically its like driving a sauna on wheels... Panas giler... But the most tension part is when we arrived, it was CLOSED! sedih... no pancakes... but of course I had plan B.... It was nearby, so we went to Calanthe Art Cafe instead... ^__^


Calanthe Art Cafe

Me & my frenz loved this place... especially the environment! Really nice... so nice that we can do gila things here! XD & also not to forget bout the drinks... also nice ^__^

Cicak Galz... XD

So far Calanthe has been great, so I thought bringing mom here will make her happy... haha, boy I was wrong.... So here's the deal. We sat down then the waitress gave us the Breakfast menu. I wanted something icy to cool me down but they didn't give me the regular beverage menu... So i pun tak kisah and ordered their so-called special "Sneakers Blenz" & also 2 sets of roti bakar with 2 half boiled eggs each...

The environment is really nice... no complaints about it... but as for the service, it is kinda slow... My "Sneakers Blenz" sampei lambat... REALLY lambat... Mom & I expected the half boiled eggs to sampai 1st, but instead the roti bakar came 1st.... & it wasnt even hot... not that nice to eat... The set came with a choice of coffee or tea... I had tea & mom had coffee... Coffee was good according to mom... well this cafe is well known for its coffee... if tak sedap, I'll definately go commando & terbalikkan all the tables... hehe.... Then we waited quite long for the eggs... when it did, the waitress told us that they have to try a few times to make it coz it was overcooked.. =.= Macam itu pun boleh ke? & the worst part is, by the time it came, the both of us was kinda full... But tak mau bazir... so just sumbat je ler....

So the environment was great... food, roti bakar yang tak panas & the thick butter is still kinda cold... not nice... & finally the service... slow giler... Maybe coz its early morning? Still blur kot? Sorry to say this but I dont care... Lets not forget that I was a F&B Assistant, where I used to work from morning till midnite, then morning again the very next day... does the customers care? NO... kalau sleepy pun, faster2 serve then can relax ma... When u are sleepy, the last thing u need a customer yang membebel. Lagi takde mood nak keje...

Well it is definately quite disappointing for me...mom wasnt happy either.... I actually wanted to bring my cousins over next time, but I think I'll find some place else to go Yam Cha...

So the only good outcome from this b'fast session is that both of us are REALLY FULL... In fact, I think I over dosed on eggs... XP

I'll take a break from eggs from now...

So in conclusion, will I come again? We'll see... Tengok my mood... hehe ^__^

So that's is from me.... hehe... BYEEEEEzzzzz!!!

Luahan Hati....

Hidup... Haiz... Life does gets sucky sometimes huh? I know previously I've said that my life is lookin pretty awesome... Hmm... maybe I've jinxed it... Damn it... Or maybe its just part of life... You win some then you loose some...


So its not always that I would meluahkan my perasaan... In fact it is VERY RARE... But I guess theres just too much problem for me to keep inside so it is best to just let it out... I know that people say it is best to talk to a person whenever you have problems... I do talk to people about my problem.. only one person... Me. Yeap I'm a crazee lady who always talk to herself... silently, in my heart of course... I'm not tat crazee nak cakap sorang2 out loud... I dont usually talk to people coz I'm just too lazy... XD haha... and also bcoz I dont like to share my feelings... blueghh...


Haha.... so apa yg mau diluahkan?Dont worry, not perasaan cinta... LOOVE is the last thing on my mind right now... I have more problems to be concern about other than LOOVE... So what is it I'm so messed up about? Lets just say that the rabbit year has not been kind to me...



Too many things are going through my mind... at home... at work... the people around me... MONEY! Everything ade problem! What kind of problem? Some of the things I cant say.... I guess it is better for me not to say... Coz u'll never know who is reading... So maybe I should go find someone to talk to? Family? Nah... they have problems of their own... Friends? Nah they have their own life & exams to worry about...



So I'll just go back to my diary... Just one problem... I got the Lazy Bug... XD I used to write in my diary... but now rasa malas pulak...hehehe.... So maybe I'll just keep it to myself, n I'll just work it out... I've done this before, so I'm sure I can do it again.... Gonna handle all this shit myself & will get anyone else to be involved in it...


Haha lets just hope that I will not be a walking time-bomb or anything... & dont worry, I definately wont be doing anything stupid like suicide... I'm too young to die, & theres soo much things for me to do... Firstly Paris is waiting for me, then a Jeep somewhere out there got my name on it, my jar of hearts collection is not full yet and most importantly, there are people who cant live without me...XD So yeah, no worries, I'll be fine... Life, aint it some kind a wonderful? Hahaha....


So hopefully the rest of the Rabbit year will be kind to me... T_T PLEASEEEEE be kind!!!



Main prob is money... Hahha it is never enough....Maybe I should stop The Great Escape? BOOOO~ Maybe I should get my own mini business starting ek? HMmmmmm....



So thats it from me... Just a lil luahan hati... Got no one to talk to,so I talk to you loh... hehe... No matter what happens, I'm gonna keep my head held high, & keep my problems away... coz eventhough I'm going through a tough time, some where out there someone else is having a shittier life than me.... so I better be grateful.... ^__^

Toodles people! Hope your life would be problem free...unlike me ^__^

My Belated Birthday Pressie

Haha even after 2 months plus, I still got myself a bday pressie... All thanks to a buddy of mine Mr. FFK/Ivan... hehe...

Remember when I told y'all I went to Geo with him? Then next day I found a lil black pouch in my bag... The dude must have sneaked in the bag when I went to the toilet.... sneaky dude... The funny thing is I didnt realise it untill the next morning when I wanted to put in my wallet into my bag... sekali ternampak bag hitam misteri ini....


My first impression was "WAT THE *toot*???" Mana keluar benda ni.... so I took it out...


WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!



& Then I spotted a lil note... Well I not gonna write out what it says, but it sure is sweet... N the best part of the note is when it writes "this is like giving u a new watch but at the same time u still keep the old ones with u".... haha i know, some of u are like "HUH???" rite now... haha ade lah isi tersirat kat situ... ^__^

Oh BLING BLING!

Raffles Restaurant Melaka ~ The Great Escape

Hehehe The Great Escape.... well actually not so great lah.... The Great Escape, definition: Having some alone time to escape from all the chaos, madness, controversy & gossip that happens in my everyday life.



Life can be hard sometimes... all the madness at work... and also at home... I need some peace & quiet... so this year onwards, I, Vriesia E. Ng Siok Fong will go for The Great Escape every month & indulge in good food no matter how expensive it is.... Once a month ma... I'm sure my Budget 2011 allows that once a month...



Hehehe... so last month I didnt manage to go for the great escape, but I manage to splurge on ice cream at Haagen Daaz with my fren Kim.... MMMmmmm yummy yummy ice cream.... SODAP!!! Hehehe...





The classic Banana Split.... MMmmmm....


So where did I head to for my Great Escape for the oh so lovely month of February?


Raffles Restaurant.... ^__^



Raffles Restaurant.... a place that I wanted to go since... since... since the first time I saw it lah! Looks cool... I mean high class kinda cool... Actually a fren of mine with his muka tebal SELF-INVITED himself to follow me... but then last minit he FFK... watanabe lah u... important client... ceh... U better get the deal with that important client then u can belanja me next time... Hehe... After soo long I wanted to go to this place, akhirnye impian tercapai... ^__^ Eat my dust Ah beng! Dont need u to bring me come here... u & ur stupid promises.... Bluek! I am an independant woman, I can come here on my own.... :P


ANYWAYZ... I went there after work, alone.... ahhhhhh, the sweet sound of silence~ LOOVE it! The place have a really nice ambience... & they even play nice songs... 98 Degrees, awww brings back old memories...me like it....



I was the only customer there... XD maybe too early... So I had my menu, & I ordered their set dinner.... 48 bucks for a 3 course meal...


There are 3 selections for the main course. I feel like eating lamb, & I heard good comments bout it, so I pun ordered the lamb loo... so while waiting, take pic loo~




They also have gourmet burgers... sounds really good... maybe I should try next time ^__^


Nyonya food pun ade...


Then sekejap oni my food dah sampei... ^__^

Fresh Mushroom Soup with garlic bread... Quite nice... but the cream kinda over powers the mushroom taste.... the Garlic bread... okok loo~



Next is Oyster Au Gratin....




Yummy yummy oyster.... it was baked... I personally like it just like tat but baked pun not bad jugak... can taste the oysterness of it... oh did i mention theres cheese on top? ^__^ N it is served with a salad on the side... got pineapples in it... tepikan oni loo~


Next my main course! Osso Bucco Lamb Shank.... Besau tu....


First impression: The sauce macam tomato sauce je.... XD other than that presentation looks presentable loo~



Taste test: The 1st thing I tried was the sauce... haha definately not ketchup... but kinda like no kick... its tasted kinda blah... the lamb was definately tender.... but it has tat funky lamb smell... tasted ok at first but half way through, i felt i wanna vomit XP Plus in the menu it says that it suppose to come with mashed potatoes, but I got wedges instead... not that I'm complaining... then it also has some veges... carrots & zouchinis... kinda overcooked in my opinion... lembik lembik je... :P


Then the dessert! Apple Pie ala Mode...
At first I requested to change my desseert to the Choclate Brownie... but the waiter said cannot... so ok loh, take the apple pie loh... NICE leh! Nasib baik I tak tukar... it definately changed my perspective on apple pies.... This one is not like ordinary apple pie... The cinnamon taste is mild & not too strong....nice~ then got ice cream, chocolate & vanilla... lagi nice ^__^

Ice cream like flower ^__^


Underneath it is JELLY! with some chunks of apple...

At first it comes in a cute lil ice cream glass, then the waiter korek the thing out & put in on to a plate... terkejut aku... haha...


Then tea was served... Earl Grey kot.... nice & hot... Mmmmmm soothing....


Brown Sugar ^__^


So overall the food is quite good... Service was fast.... bagus2...^__^

Will I come again? Definately! Their food is quite affordable, so my budget sure allows me to dine here next time ^__^

Bila dah kenyang, rasa mengantuk pulak....So I asked for my bill, payed it & I headed to my car....
See ya soon Raffles!
Tgh jalan2, then my FFK fren called & ajak me to Geo... Geo leh, how can I say no? Hehehehe.... Ordered myself a Baileys & milk... driving ma... cannot drink heavy stuff... Its been a while since I saw him, so we chatted, we laughed, we cursed... haha good old times.... Wanted to stay longer but my eyes were gettin heavy.... so we went our separate ways.... I LOOVE driving through the streets at Jonker & Bunga Raya during this time of the year.... pretty lanterns....
Jonker...
Never fail to put a smile on my face... coz it always remind me of the time when Kong Kong alwayz drive me around Jonker area a few times just to see the pretty lanterns... haiz... how I wish I can go back to those days.... oh well... life goes on i guess....


So tats it for my Great Escape for the month of February... March coming soon... cant wait ^__^ but I wonder which place I should go to next? Hmmmmmmmmm....


So till the next post... Au Revoir~

Chinese New Year 2011

*Tong Tong Tong Chiang* ~ *Tong Tong Tong Chiang*


Happy Chinese New Year!!!
Hahaha... Sorry lah post lambat... Bz ma.... Maklumlah cuti 1 minggu... hehehe..
So how was ur CNY? Hope y'all had fun... Mine was boring! So not fun... Dunno why... just not fun loh...

I did not celebrate CNY last 2 years... So I guess me & my family got a lil rusty in terms of preparation for CNY. Everything we did was last minute... Chaos gile...

On the 1st day of CNY, mcm biase buat open house, but most of our guests are frens of mum & dad... my sis & I basically jadi dayang-dayang to tuang air & of course receive ang pau... hehehe.... Oh btw, I receive an ang pau from someone who is yournger than me... WEIRD siot! Oh well, janji ade duit rite? Tu ler, gatal nak kahwin awal... you should be receiving not giving little lady... tsk... tsk...
After all my mum & dad's frens went home in the evening, family members pulak datang at nite... When family member datang, apa lagi? GAMBLE lah! Hhaahaha... As usual we would play Black Jack... Hehehe... All of us were quite tired but after tengok the pile of card, semangat giler! XD
Then on the following days, we go ronda2 collect ang pau ^__^ On the 3rd day I went out with my frenz... Since tis year nye CNY break is stupidly short, we had 2 go out on the 3rd day instead of the usual 4th day... N the MMU kiddos had exam so only a few of us are able to make it.


So as usual we berkumpul at Ah Hoon's place... Then AS USUAL the guys were late... I was 20 minutes late but I was the 2nd to arrive... haha... Then we planned 2 celebrate Kuhan's bday so me & Ashok went 2 JJ to buy the cake... Our excuse to sneak out is that I wanna buy credit top-up.... XD padahal I am using Postpaid... LOLZ...


Then we went the rest of the gang at Siew See's place... the place where there is LOADS of goodies...

Yummy Yum Yum...


Cookie Monsters!!!


Me & Siew See lookin at then thinkin: Ish makan sampai x ingat dunia... XD


After makan2, we brough out the cake!!!


HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY KUHAN!!!!

Senyuman lebar...



Ashok jadi Tukang Potong...


Awwwwww....


After that we went over 2 my place... ^__^

I didnt bring my house key & my sis who is inside the house also didnt have a house key... So we had 2 come in from the back... Hahaha sorry guys, paiseh ah...XD








We are all so close, everyone lepaked around mcm rumah sendiri... XD Bagush, bagush!


Haha we even gambled together with my sis... Then we went to Badak's place... Had some yummy2 steamboat~ And thats it... Oni 4 houses... sedih... hopefully next year would be better...


Other then ronda2 kumpul ang pau, like every year, we go fun fair! ^__^

Ooo pretty lights ^__^
And mcm biase kita main BINGO!

3 papan, 5 token!
Spent 20 bucks here... but I got nothin! XD But then the prizes dont seem nice this year... & tis year I notice theres loads of Ah Beng & Ah Liens carrying big teddy bears... Awww :P Been there, done that... Gua tak heran lah... XP
Unattractive prizes... but kalau mau pun tak dapat... XD

So thats all for my oh so dull CHinese New Year.... So not fun... ang pau cikit... Gamble pun asyik kalah.... huhuhuhu.... Sungguh sedih.... Oh well, let's hope that next year will be better... but somthin tells me it wont... coz people say as u grow older, CNY is not tat fun anymore... T__T Oh well, janji I still receive ang pau then OK loh...
I know its kinda late, but I'm still gonna wish y'all a Happy Happy Chinese New Year!!!

CNY still not yet habis, so marilah kita bersama - sama berjuang mengumpul ang pau... YEAH!!!
^n_n^ ~ Happy New Year ~ ^n_n^

Love is in the Air....

"Love is in the air".... "Everywhere I look around"...


Yeap! Is that time of the year again... the time where all the florist all around the world gets busy & get loads of money... the time where all the fancy restaurants are fully booked with tables for two... the time where radio stations will get a whole lot of mushy mushy love song dedications... the time where some people would pening kepala to think what to buy for their other half, or even what should they do to be "romantic". And also the time where some single people will be depressed and bitter and would say that it is the shittiest time of the year... YEAP! It is Valentine's Day! Love is in air~ weeooo weoooo


Hahaha... So Valentine's Day... apa plan? Hehehe... Saje je nak tau... keh keh keh.... Anywayz the real reason i post this is to actually find out from u peeps, is it better to be single or to have someone on Valentine's Day?


Heard this topic on the radio recently... And a whole load of people say it is better to be single... Hassle free XD Even the married people said that "I wished I am single on Valentine's Day... XD I some how agree... Hahah not just bcoz I'm single now ok... its just that u dont have 2 pening kepala on what to buy & where to go on your special date... tak payah nak spend money... seriously a bouqet of a dozen of roses cost a whole lot of money... so much that I can buy myself a nice looking watch... Bazir duit je... But usually kecian the guys loh... hehe... girls biase menerima saje... hehe... but guys, I'm sure it's all worth it when u see ur gf's smile when they receive the flower kan? Then mana lah tau ade special reward ke at the end of the nite... XD hehe....


ANYWAYZ...I celebrated my 1st V'Day last year... Last year it falls on the 1st day of CNY... XD So we decided to go out on the eve of V'Day... We went out quite late coz of all the CNY preparation & the reunion dinner. So we went for a movie... Wolf Man... how "romantic".... the movie sucks soo bad, i almost fell asleep... XD then after the movie, we grabbed some Oreo McFlurries & went to a padang nearby my house to light up some fireworks...Pretty fireworks.... LOOVE them! XD Yeap thats it.... Short & sweet... XD and kinda lame... XD yeah i know... i know...


Hehehe... So i guess it doent really matter if you are single or have that special someone on Valentine's Day.... V'Day is the day to celebrate the LOOVE, so it doesnt mean that you need to have a gf or bf... Janji u have your loved ones which includes family, frenz, & cats you can go out and celebrate V'day.... So to all single people out there, DONT BE BITTER... & PLEASE DONT BE DEPRESSED.... go out & feel the LOOVE in the air... Most of my frenz are not around... if not I will definately ajak them keluar beramai-ramai & buat havoc kat those restaurants that are infested with lovey dovey couples.... XD hahaha maybe next year...

Hehehe... So that all from me... hope ya'll have a blast 2day with or without you love ones... As for me... hehe this kind of matter, I think it is best to keep it private... Secret Valentine.... hehehehe.... Wokiesh thats all from me....

HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY!!!!
