I am Number Four: it's Epic, Rad, and Dope!

a place is only as good as the people you know in it.

Alex Pettyfer, John Smith... An alien... Seriously. Awesome. Alien!

Dianna Agron, Sarah... OMG, you're so cute! [And that cammy? Rad!]

Callan McAuliffe, Sam... Adorable Aussie!

Teresa Palmer, Number Six... Kickass Aussie!

Seriously, flirting with me after reading my secret book is so not cool

I have powers... You? Nope!

Take that you filthy gill-y Mogadorians!
Look mom! My hands! They're shining [at least not in the Twilight way]

Watched I AM NUMBER FOUR yesterday, and it was like AWESOMELY EPIC!
Basically, the plot is about a guy, John Smith, an alien from planet Lorien who is one of the nine alien children that were sent to earth as a way to protect them from the Mogadorians, an invasive alien species with gills that had nothing else to do but to kill them. John is number four, and since number one, two, and three were killed, his number will be up soon. With his Guardian, Henri, they both travelled around America trying to be normal and not to stand out from the crowd [though that is what John always does]. After an unfortunate event that may spill out John’s secret, they go to their next destination, Paradise, Ohio. It is here that John meets Sam, whose missing father is an alien enthusiast [Sam discovers about John’s secret life later]. John also learns that a Lorien will only love one people his entire life, and for John, his love is Sarah. Nevertheless it comes with so many obstructions: Sarah’s ex-BF, Mark, and of course, the Mogadorians soon find out where he’s hiding. He doesn’t want to run for his entire life. He finally loves someone, and he’ll defend himself for that.
So guys… How was the movie? I have answered it above. Huhu…
The casts were great! Alex Pettyfer was so great acting like an Number Four a.k.a. Number Four, though I will make a guess that the girls watched him for something else… Haha. He nailed it. Dianna Agron, she was an angel. Really… she’s cute as a button, and her portrayal as Sarah was beautiful [I wanna read her secret book!]. Her camera IS splendid! Want that! Aussie Callan McAuliffe played as Sam, John’s friend whose father knew about the arriving of the aliens, in fact he even knew them. Sam was typically a dork in his school, and was bullied, a lot! It’s not wrong to say that he was adorable too… Another Aussie, Teresa Palmer starred as Number Six, another Lorien child. She was a badass girl… should have more screentime though.
Anyway, it is a movie that you either love it, or hate it. The story, although a bit like what you might have seen before, is still great. There were some comedic moments, maybe not LOL-typed-comedic moments, but you’ll still giggle on your seats. Not to be missed, some moments of suspense. Romance, Number Four and Sarah made a pretty great couple! The action sequence and FX were like WHOA EPIC! The last fiery explosion was superbly made. The highlight of this story? Maybe it’s weird, but the soundtracks? They were incredible! Love each and every song in it.
Final verdict: 4.5/5
P.S.: here's the photo of the camera used by Sarah, Nikon F 35MM SLR!

Larian 1Gaya 1Malaysia

Nombor aku yang bertuah... Bertuah ke?

IPGK Gaya buat Larian 1Gaya 1Malaysia.... Apa yang seronok [bukan 'ape yang penting']? Arrr... Huhu... Aku? Berliar... eh, silap... berlari untuk 5KM? Macam tak de kaitan pun? Haha. Akupun bukan berlari sangat pon. Awal-awal je sebelum sampai Foh Sang tu bolehlah. Lepas tu, tercungap-cungap. Nampak sangat aku kurang stamina. Huhu. Setidak-tidaknya, sekali-sekala dapat la aku beriadah/bersenam kan?

Aku dapat nombor... yang pasti aku bukan yang terakhir, dan memang jauh la aku dari yang pertama. Aku sendiri tak pasti dapat nombor berapa. 100? 120?

Cabutan bertuah? Aku tak pernah bertuahpun. Hampeh. Haha. 28 hadiah, 28 pun aku tak dapat. Takpe la. Reda la ni...Kuikuikui.

[Good news, TESL Night 2011: An Avenue of Icons is now on the way! 15th of April, in guess where? Shang-ri La Tg. Aru! Hurrah! Not-so-good news: assignments!!!]

Readers' Theatre: An Awesome Night Like No Other!

IPGK Gaya’s PPISMP TESL July 2010 students had organised the 2011 Readers’ Theatre last Friday and it was incredible! They totally rocked it out last Friday. For me, it was really great to experience all of their awesome, funny, and sad stories, amazing and funky dance performances and breathtaking singings. They have lots of talents, ain’t it?

[What’s a reader’s theatre anyway? It is a style of theatre in which the actors sit or stand on the stage, and read the lines directly from the scripts. The scripts are not memorised. Instead of using elaborate props or visual aesthetics, the actors use their own vocal expressions and body movements to help the audience understand the story.]

The [completely unorthodox] compilation of the stories:

The bread [a gift from God] was eaten by a vegan dinosaur that then went to the bank to deposit $65 but was astonished to see new creatures called butterflies. He was trying to catch them, but he accidentally met a one-arm aborigine [who never enrolled himself in a school]who was trying to eat him while saying ‘Sam I am, I don’t eat green eggs and ham’, while listening to Martin Luther King, Jr’s I Have a Dream in order to fulfil his dream of world peace.

Here’re some photos from the night. Hope you’ll enjoy it!

Femme Fatale


14th of March 2011


The Cover Art, well it's a bit vintage-looking for me. I love the 'Britney Spears' font,
and the way the tail of the second 'F' is a stylized '7',
a symbolic representation of Femme Fatale as Brit's seventh album.
Anyhow, I personally like the cover art of the album's first single, Hold it Against Me better.

Whatever it is, one fact remains:
I'll be waiting for this!
