Watched the Hong Kong movie, Connected in Pavilion today. I believe I m really beginnin to fall seriously in love with the cinema there =) It's so spacious as compared to others. Okay, back to the movie. I think the movie is good, though it only focused on communication between two strangers but the intensity was just as great. Apparently, it was remake of an American movie but I have not seen the movie before. Overall, I enjoyed the movie. What's there to complain about when there was a hunk actin in it?? Haha. Here's a lil details on the movie.

Connected (traditional Chinese: 保持通話; simplified Chinese: 保持通话; pinyin: Bao chi tong hua; Cantonese Yale: Bo chi tung wah; Literal title: Maintain the telephone conversation) is a 2008 Hong Kong action-crime thriller film directed by Benny Chan. It is the first Chinese-language film to remake an American film, as it is a remake of the 2004 American thriller Cellular. The film stars Louis Koo as a man who receives a distressing phone call on his cellular phone from a young woman (Barbie Hsu) who has been kidnapped. Both lead actors shot their scenes separately, only sharing one scene together.

Louis Koo (古天樂) plays Bob, a debt collector, and single father whose life has fallen apart after his wife leaves him and her son behind.

Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛) plays Grace Wong, the female protagonist who is kidnapped. Grace is a widowed single mother, who owns a successful toy designing company. Hsu, a Taiwanese actress who appears in her first Hong Kong film, commented on her character: “The character I play is a victim throughout. After being kidnapped and imprisoned, she even has to witness someone being killed. It’s all very frightening. Yet, I like this character a lot because she manages to piece together a shattered phone to make a call, under such difficult circumstances.

Liu Ye (劉燁) plays a Kidnapper with a hidden agenda.

Nick Cheung (張家輝) plays Detective Fai, a low-ranking police officer in Hong Kong's Serious Crime Division.

Flora Chan (陳慧珊) plays Jeanie, Bob's sister, who plans on leaving him with his son.

Carlos Chan (陳嘉樂) plays Roy, Grace's brother

Ken Hung (洪卓立) plays Ho, Roy's classmate.

Fan Siu-Wong (樊少皇) plays the Kidnapper's Henchman

Gong Beibi (龔蓓苾) plays Fai's wife in a cameo appearance.

Cheung Siu-Fai (張兆輝) as Fai's distrustful superior.

Money No Enough 2

Went shoppin at Pavilion with Karen today. Ever since the other time when we shopped in Pavilion, we realised that we have fallen in love with this new shoppin paradise. Hehe. Not that we can afford the stuffs here, just like the ambience and the feel of it. We intended to catch a movie and we decided on Money No Enough 2, a Singaporean movie directed by Jack Neo. I have watched the first part quite many years ago so don't really remember what was it about except the main point of the movie, not enough money. We went for our lunch cum dinner first as there was still some time before the movie started. 

Had our meal at this restaurant called Crystal Jade. Overall, the food was just okay. Ambience was nice though. After dinner, window shopped for some time before headin to the theater. I must say the movie was damn good!! Extremely touchin. I m no stranger when it comes to cryin in the cinema. I will cry naturally when it comes to certain touchin scenes in any movies, even cartoons. Imagine that. I won't really cry too long though, will stop once those scenes are over. But for this movie, I actually could not stop cryin for almost half an hour!! From the moment the children started to ignore the mum till the moment when the mum died, just so that her granddaughter could live. So much for a mum/grandmother's sacrifices. At first I thought I would stop cryin after a few minutes, but the tears just flowed freely. Could not help it. Guess I m an emotional freak. Thank God the cinema was kinda empty. Hehe. 

Once out of the cinema, I kept askin Karen if I was lookin really dreadful and she actually asked me if she is a person of no feelin. All because she did not cry and that she felt those scenes were just normal. Erm.. I really did not know how to answer her. Hehe. Even now when i replayed those touchin scenes in my mind, I believe with high possibility I will start cryin again..

Money No Enough 2 (simplified Chinese: 钱不够用二)is a Singaporean film written and directed by Jack Neo and produced by Neo Studios, Mediacorp Raintree Pictures and Scorpio EastPictures.
Ten-years since the first Money No Enough, local celebrity auteur Jack Neo’s Money No Enough 2 returns to bring attention to the common man’s life in Singapore where the pursuit of money is a never ending passion. It is the filmmaker’s wish that Money No Enough 2, through the ups and downs faced by the three Yang brothers, help us to reflect at our own priorities while giving us a chance to laugh at ourselves.

The story revolves around three brothers from a middle-income background in contemporary Singapore. These are characters who are representative of the business owners, white and blue collar workers of Singaporeans.

The oldest brother Yang Bao Hui (by Henry Thia) represents the lower income group. As a child, Hui left school at an early age to earn money to help support his poverty stricken family. He has been working as a delivery man in the same company for the last 30 years. At the persuasion of his younger brother, he strikes out as an entrepreneur to sell health supplements. As business improves, he quits his dead-end job and puts all his time into the business. Unfortunately the business is forced to a standstill when the health supplement is deemed unsafe for public consumption, which inadvertently brings Bao Hui close to financial ruin.

The second brother Yang Bao Qiang (by Jack Neo) portrays a well-heeled successful businessman. As the owner of his own business, he and his wife flaunts their wealth in typical Singaporean fashion, with designer clothes, a flashy car and a big house to put it all in. However in a moment of greed, he allows himself to be cheated out of his fortune and gets into a very difficult financial situation.

The youngest brother Yang Bao Huang (by Mark Lee) represents the ordinary middle working class. He earns a good salary working as a regional supervisor for a health supplement trading company, and spends lavishly to maintain his ‘wannabe’ lifestyle. When the health supplement business goes bust, debts pile up and Bao Huang too, faces financial ruin.

As the winds of fortune changes, the brother’s begin to neglect their elderly mother. It was easy to be generous and filial during the good times but when household budgets tighten, what is the cost of true filial piety? Even the most basic arrangements, including whom mom should stay with, become a contentious issue.

Poh Keong

Poh Keong, a.k.a PK finally reappeared after disappearin for 3 months. Well.. his usual excuse is "I m too busy. Sorry." Lame. Just jokin =P I understand coz I was just as busy as well for the past three months =) He drove his new car to fetch me and he actually told me I was his first passenger. I only found out about it when I realised that he was so not used to the car, as though it was the first time he is drivin it despite havin it at home for a few days already. Hehe. Unbelievable. Actually there was a reason for me bein his first passenger. Before he got his new car, he has promised me that I will be the first person in his car. I've almost forgotten bout this promise of his but he didn't. And that's just so sweet =) 

We went to One Utama (he just love that place and keep claimin it as his own place) for dinner as well as movie. It has become a usual routine for us to have dinner and movie whenever we go out together. We always have trouble decidin what to eat. He wanted to have somethin special today and he asked me to decide as it was my day. Huh?? That was what exactly what I replied him. He said today's date was to make up for the birthday celebration which he did not give me. (a lil recap for everyone: he has forgotten my birthday) So, instead of Friday's which he felt was kinda ordinary already (we had Friday's for his birthday), we opted for somethin else. We had wanted to try out the Japanese cuisine which I think was newly-opened but the queue was too long and we had a movie to catch =( We were walkin aimlessly before we chanced upon this Japanese Plus One Shabu-Shabu Restaurant and decided to try it.

Shabu-shabu (しゃぶしゃぶ, , also spelled syabu-syabu?) is a Japanese variant of hot pot. The dish is related to sukiyaki in style, where both use thinly sliced meat and vegetables, and usually served with dipping sauces. However, it is starkly different in taste; shabu-shabu is more savory and less sweet than sukiyaki. It is considered a winter dish but is eaten year-round.

PK chose the beef set as he knows that I loved eatin beef (it's my day afterall =P) There were a vast variety of dippin sauces for us to choose. We are free to choose the base for the soup as well. It was a nice food experience for the both of us =) We watched the movie starrin Adam Sandler, "You Don't Mess With The Zohan". Erm.. I couldn't give much comment on the movie. But I wondered when Adam Sandler got his hot bod. Hehe.

You Don't Mess with the Zohan is a 2008 American comedy film, directed by Dennis Dugan and starring Adam Sandler. The film is about Zohan Dvir (Hebrew : זוהאן דביר), Israel's hero and its greatest counter-terrorism army commando who, after growing tired of his Israeli post-draft's standing service, fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream: becoming a hairstylist in New York City.

The movie begins with Zohan Dvir (Adam Sandler), a Mossad agent, hanging around at the Tel Aviv beach, attracting several women and capturing the attention of every beach-goer with his Hacky Sack prowess including a clumsy Fizzy Bubelech drinker. Then the film goes to his vacation in Eilat where he cooks fish in the nude (using copious amounts of hummus) for himself, his friend and several women. His party favor, catching the fish between the cheeks of his buttocks. As he finishes cooking, an Israeli Defence Forces helicopter arrives, stealing him away from his presumed well-earned vacation.

During a subsequent briefing, Zohan expresses his displeasure about having his vacation cut short. After being heckled by his officer, he eventually agrees to do yet another mission of recapturing a key Palestinian terrorist, the "Phantom" (John Turturro), who had been freed by the Israeli government in exchange for a captured Mossad agent, plus an additional "to-be-named-later" spy. Later, as Zohan expresses his desire to leave Israel and become a hairdresser in New York City, his wishes are met with laughter by his mother and his father, who had fought in Israel's Six-Day War.

The disgruntled Zohan fakes his own death during the pursuit of the Phantom, who is tricked into believing he had killed Zohan. Zohan smuggles himself into a flight to New York City in a pet crate of two dogs named Scrappy and Coco. Changing his hairstyle into a 1980s Paul Mitchell's Avalon style and taking "Scrappy Coco" as a new alias, he sets out to pursue his dreams in the Big Apple.

Initially unsuccessful in getting hired at an upscale Paul Mitchell salon (as well as an African American salon and a children's salon), Zohan's military expertise earns him a new friend, Michael (Nick Swardson), who gives him a place to stay, though Michael feels uncomfortable with Zohan's sexual activities with Michael's mother, Gail (Lainie Kazan). Zohan's passion for disco (Discothèques) runs him into a fellow Israeli named Oori (Ido Mosseri), a Zohan fan who is aware of Scrappy Coco's true identity but agrees to keep it a secret. Oori introduces him to a block in lower Manhattan filled with Middle Eastern Americans, who are split between a Palestinian side and an Israeli side of the street.

Zohan attempts to land a job in a struggling salon of a Palestinian woman named Dalia (Emmanuelle Chriqui). After first only allowing the ostentatious Zohan to sweep floors for free, she eventually allows him to be a stylist after he pleases a senior lady with a satisfactory haircut and back room sexual service. Zohan's reputation spreads instantly among the elder women of lower Manhattan, who comment that "besides the sex, he gives a pretty good haircut." Dalia's business booms, upsetting Walbridge (Michael Buffer), a corporate magnate who has been trying to force out all the local tenants on the block so that he may build a huge mall. Zohan brags to his colleague Claude (Alec Mapa) that he has a big one, which is understood as big p***s, but he meant big amount of pubic hair.

Eventually Zohan is identified by a Palestinian cab driver named Salim (Rob Schneider), whose goat Zohan had stolen after Salim threw his shoe at Zohan and spit in his face. Salim convinces his friends to help him exact revenge on Zohan. He rebuffs their advice to "let the professionals" take care of it because Salim wants the glory of killing Zohan for himself. He and his friends decide to build a bomb, but they are unsure how to do so. Thinking that they need "chemicals," Salim and his friends walk into a pharmacy and try to ask for Liquid Nitrogen. Hearing Salim's mispronunciation, the pharmacist instead presents Salim with Neosporin. Seeing that the Neosporin doesn't destroy Zohan's workplace, Salim reluctantly informs Phantom through a Hezbollah hotline. Now a successful fastfood chain owner, Phantom then pays a visit to New York to hunt Zohan down.

Meanwhile, Zohan realizes that he has fallen in love with Dalia when he discovers that he has unexplainable erectile dysfunction except in her presence. However, Dalia rejects Zohan's feelings for her after he reveals he was formerly an Israeli counter-terrorist operative. Zohan decides to leave Dalia and confront the Phantom in a Hacky Sack game. His fight is cut short with sudden news of the Middle Eastern block being attacked by racist white arsonist rednecks dressed in Arabic clothing, the leader of them being played by Dave Matthews. (The arsonists are hired by Walbridge to instigate an inter-ethnic riot between the Israelis and Palestinians and hopefully allow him to take over their stores more easily.)

As Zohan and Phantom are working together to save the block, Dalia appears, revealing that she is the Phantom's sister – or "Fattoush" as she calls him. Zohan's personal dossier allows him to discover the arsonists' true identities as rednecks hired by Walbridge. Zohan and Phantom lead the united Israelis and Palestinians of the block to save their shops, defeating the rednecks, thwarting Walbridge's plans, and damaging all of the shops on the block, as well as Walbridge's female companions' breast implants, by using "The Sound" which is a combination of stereotypical Arabic rhythmic calling and stereotypical Hebrew "chhhh" sounds. The police arrive to arrest Walbridge for his crimes.

With the Israelis and the Palestinians united, the block is transformed into a collectively-owned mall, in which Zohan and Dalia realize their dream, opening a joint beauty parlor. The Phantom also fulfills his lifelong passion of opening up a shoe store. The movie ends happily as Zohan's parents approve of his new wife (Dalia) and hair salon, called "Dalohan," becoming customers themselves in a surprise visit.

Yong Zhang

It's Yong Zhang's (the pretty boy) birthday today. And also the Anatomy & Physiology paper. Thank God, it wasn't what I've expected the questions to be =) But I've overestimated the paper so there were still some basic things which I've not put much effort on. Anyway, after the exam, we stayed back to discuss where to have Yong Zhang birthday celebration. At first we agreed on Old Town but I have sort of gotten sick of the food there so we planned to go to this cafe called Station One. We met up at around 10pm plus. And the fun night began =D

Welcome to Station One Cafe.. The spokesperson =P

The Birthday Cake

Apparently, it's written "four-legged snake here", if I m not wrong.

We had requested for them to switched off the light and they really did. Saw the lighted cross on Yong Zhang's t-shirt? We were so amazed by it coz it looked so nice and special.

I don't know what had happened to him here

Make a wish =)

This is the part where they pushed the candle deep inside the cake and asked the birthday boy to take it out with his mouth.

Can you see the candle? Neither do I. Haha.


Tryin hard

So much for sacrificin our revision time to celebrate his birthday for him and this was how he repaid us. Look at the pictures of the "victims" below and you will know what had actually happened. As far as I can remembered, only Alex and Qing Long were not "victimised" but where are Karen and Yong Zhang's unglam pictures?? Mine was taken so many times. Unfair!! And I wonder why all of us looked so happy after bein bullied.

Actually I had been tryin so hard to stay away from Yong Zhang but never did it occur to me that he could have an accomplice. And he was none other than LIM YI HAUR!!

And I was forced to take all these so unglam pictures yet smilin so happily =P
