Round-up of Wolverine & other things I watch....

For the record, yesss, I've watched Wolverine!!!! Legally! At the cinema! All the effects were in order. My only complaint is Wolverine's sometimes fake claws which look pretty cartoony sometimes. It's like the CGI ppl didn't bother after the movie leaked about a month ago. The story didn't differ at all from the leaked version... I waited for the extra 15 minutes of running time that never came. But still, thumbs up!!! Liev Schreiber ain't bad too, though I giggled a bit when he got on all fours...


I'm still holding out on some hope that Agent X (Daniel Henney) didn't get blown up in smithereens and that Gambit (Taylor Kitsch) will appear in the next sequel. If you haven't already guessed, Gambit is my favourite character in the movie! (Obviously.) I love his Cajun accent and his flamboyant purple undertones in his clothes and power bursts. There's just something about him that screams VEGAS. All in all, the movie was waaay better than previous installments but I did like the first one. The other characters were okay. Ryan Reynolds, as much as I love him, I wouldn't mind not seeing him again as Deadpool.

The next movie I'll probably catch in the cinemas is Angel and Demons. I'll be biting my hat waiting for that one. And the Ugly Truth (chick flick) which I've been waiting for since last year. Now I've got to catch up on my regular TV shows like True Blood (which I'm currently digging, probably because of the comedy and the sex! Bwahahahah! &hearts Sam & Jason!) and Gossip Girl (Got to get the latest episode!). Busy, busy, busy. And I've got a thing to go to today and tommorow. Hope it'll be short and sweet.

Till next time!

Updates!!!! On my hols.... ^_^

I'm on my second week of internship and so far, it's been awesome... I don't actually earn money at all but it's just for two months anyway... The people around here have been just so funny at the Likas Fisheries Research Center even though I'm totally pooped out after I reach home... My supervisor there's Helena who's a really wonderful lady, so good at explaining things in the most easiest way possible to understand... :-) Today was the wrap-up of a two-day long course on techniques of extracting and analysing DNA through electrophoresis which was very educational for DNA noobs such as me. Anyway, here's to another week of fun! I'm enjoying myself hugely! I didn't realise how much i needed a change of environment from quaint little Terengganu.

I also went to a conference thingy which was all about investments in the Walton agency where my mum works at... Food was awesome as always at Pan-Pacific (Pan-Pac to us Sabahans). My sister and I got dragged along and I was relieved that it was short because the mere mention of numbers is enough to make my eyes glaze over. Later we got dragged by my dad this time, to go drinking at KYC which was rather fun, we met this cool auntie called Hafizah who is rather put off by the word 'auntie' and a 'celebrity' called DJ Dev(?) who was quite big in the 70s apparently. HAHA.

Anyway, I decided to put up a random music file every now and then to spice up my rather sparse blog for my amusement. About my work, I gotta make this post a short and sweet one because I have to wake up early tommorow... (I think it's true that Sabahans like to crack jokes, I heard from a lecturer that us Sabahans like to fool around and we have an endless sense of humour... After coming back, yes, I think it's true!!! Terengganu ppl really have to learn how to loosen up a bit...)

Hehe. Just because I can. :)
Toodles! &hearts
