Movie Sharing: Alice in Wonderland



Me, a kid at heart

I pointed at the poster at Mid Valley GSC.
What is my line, probably is this:
"See, I'm late! I'm late! When am I getting my invite to Tea Party?" 




Alice in Wonderland (3D)

Before the movie was up, I joined a few contests and was waiting for results ...
Finally someone treated me... lol
So I wasn't too late for the 3D show by Tim Burton
From the story by Lewis Carroll
together with some well known casts like
Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway...



Another poster showing the cute twins,
The Red (right) and also the White (left) Queens.

Do you notice the absurbly big smile from the Cheshire cat? 



From left: Mad Hatter, Red Queen, White Queen
Makeup by the master-in-details makeup artists

From their hairdo, eye makeup...
Which one would you think used up the highest time cost to complete?
I think it should be Mad Hatter (Depp)

Possible that this Mad Hatter's look will become
an interesting study by the makeup profession.


Sweet nineteen-year-old Alice,
no longer wearing the neat tidy dress in blue and white.

Her nonconformist attitude can be seen during the enagagement.
I watched how she challenge the culture expectations

Truely, this Alice has no longer come with the typical childish curiosity,
instead replacing by a more mature need to the nonsence. 

Did her 2nd experience to that "Underland" ever change her attitude?

Allow me to do the sharing of this movie in a different way.

I hope my blog followers/ readers participate in these following pointers.

POINTER ONE
 Do you know that "Alice in Wonderland is a much debated
and famous work of literature?
YES/ NO

POINTER TWO
Do you think that Tim Burton has lived up to his ever predictable unpredictability
by viewing this show?
YES/ NO

POINTER THREE
With such intense wild, dark background, and theme focus,
the viewers are to walk through the journey to Wonderland  
in a hallucinate way.
Do you agree?
YES/ NO

POINTER FOUR
This Alice is very different from the Alice I used to read in my childhood.
She is not a curious creature by nature.
Rather she is doubtful, and used to reasoning a lot.
She rather believe that that is merely a dream than to accept that
it was the "underland" she visited in her childhood!
Dear reader, do we share the same view?
YES/ NO

All in all,
I think this show is still worth watching (4 out of 5 stars)
as the character of Mad Hatter played by Depp will
definately become a masterpiece,
it is a careful combination of ingenious acting, well made costume,
and fantastical makeup art.


Depp was being interviewed about his character of Mad Hatter, he commented:
"I think he was poisoned, very, very poisoned, and it was coming out through his hair,
through his finger nails and eyes!"
But nontheless it was a dream-come-true to him to experience such a character.
He further said that Hatter is a mood ring and his emotion was very close to the surface. 

I personally do not see that Hatter is mad,
instead what happen is that the "sensible world" of Alice has lost its mind.

Does this 3D show serve to the pure value of entertainment?
But certainly I do not suggest this show serve as a
comparison to the original story written by Carroll.
It's just like people say, how can you compare apples and oranges?

Experience the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta at Putrajaya



The poster at the hot air balloon ticket counter.
I arrived about 12 plus noon.
Traffic was really heavy.

Basic Components in a Hot Air Balloon
Basically it has 3 main parts

The Envelope
The actual fabric balloon that holds the air

The Burner
The unit that propels the heat up inside the envelope

The Basket
Where the pilot and the passengers stand

Some facts
The first tethered hot air balloon flight with human on board,
took place at October 19, 1783.
And it was built by the brothers Joseph Michel
and Jaeques Eitienne Montgolfier.  

Melting point of nylon is significantly higher than
this maximum operating temperature, 
about 230 degree celcius/ 430 degree fahrenheit


I stood behind the "Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides"
For the public at certain operating hours.
Ticket price: RM10 per adult and RM5 per child

The concurent activities at the fiesta are shown below.

Water balloon under the hot sun
Ticket sold at RM40 per balloon.


Modern "Kayaking"?


Kite Flying


Motor Sport for the little one.

I was little upset of the absence of the Clown balloon as shown in the event facebook page.

My Clarins Experience

My Clarins Experience

Three good products that I would love to share here:

  1. HydraQuench Cream Mask

  2. Younger Longer Balm

  3. Shaping Facial Lift  
(Pictures are as below)

    Top Left
    I put on the Clarins hydraquench mask, and you can see,
    my cheek areas were really thirsty,
    absorption rate varies compare to forehead. 

    Top Right
    The "before" picture after cleansing

    Bottom Middle
    This glowing look was after the correct application
    with Clarins signature products, they are:

    a) Facial Shaping Lift

     It is used for facial drainage, it refines facial contour.
    I have to go through FIVE positions (Pressing with both palms on
    those positions, refer picture below) 

    The FIVE main positions are
    forehead, eyes, cheeks, chin and jaw lines, finally the neck and ears





    b) Younger Longer Balm
    It goes further than any classical age-control product.
    It helps skin to nourish, moisture, regenerate from within like young skin does.
    After apply, my skin quickly regains the tones and freshness and radiance of its youth! Wow.
    Remember it is not a cream, it is a balm.

    Go to experience at Clarins treatment or
    enquire about these signature products at Clarins counter!

    If you have any Clarins experience, do share here at the comments column.

    Nuffnang/ Love World Love Sloggi

    Picture from Nuffnang Malaysia
    Love World Love Sloggi
    Sloggi: Pure Body Wear

    In conjunction with the
    I take this opportunity to share what I love about the nature,
    also what I love about Sloggi.

    {*Nuffnang is Asia's first blog advertising community}

    I love the temperature on our mother earth when I was young.
    I love to play outside under the sun, running with peers on the field was no big deal.
    Enjoying the Telok Cempedak beach walk with family during the weekends
    was the most memorable time.
    During those days, I remembered the climates was more steady then now,
    temperature would not simply rise to 39 or 40 degree celsius.

    So far, have you observe where have we gone wrong in arriving 
    to this stage of global warming?

    So many campaigns held in relation to this global issue.
    One of them is **Earth Hour, to REDUCE electricity consumption;
    further effort also being planted to educate the public to REUSE and RECYCLE.
     I have reclasified my waste into plastics, papers, aluminium,
    and put into the relevant recycle bins stationed at the neighbourhood garden since university days.

    Coming we have the **Earth Hour.
    It is a global WWF climate change initiative.
    Individuals, businesses, governments and communities are invited
    to switch off their lights for one hour on
    Saturday, 27th March 2010 at 8:30pm.

    It is to show their support for action on climate change.

    Today I have also received the UTAR Alumni email regarding this Earth Hour.
    We are reminded almost in every corners to save the earth through action!

    I personally has watched some related movie like the "Incovenience Truth";
    attended awareness campaigne and have learned that 
    the global warming with
    six degree could change the world!

    Do you know what am I talking here?
    It's simple, if the earth experienced another increase of 6 degree Celsius,
    all living things on earth will no longer be capable to stay alive on earth.


    Imaginery picture of the six degree.
    Picture (above and below) are obtained from
    National Geographic :Six Degree can change the world"




    2006 documentary film
    to educate the earth residents on global warming


    All information below (+1 to +6 degrees) are from web research.
    +1 degree:
    Western USA will face severe drought and large part
    will be turned into desert
    +2 degrees:
    Greenland's ice sheet will have melted away
    causing global sea levels to rise by 7 metres.
    +3 degrees:
    3C is the tipping point where global warming runs out of control,
    leaving us powerless to intervene as planetary temperatures soars.
    The centre of this disaster is the Amazon, where the tropical
    rainforest would burn down in a firestorm of epic proportion.
    +4 degrees:
    Southern western will become unliveable due to extreme heat.
    The west Antartic ice sheet will melt away and add another 5cm to global sea level. 
    The complete extinction of polar bears and other ice-dependent species.
    +5 degrees:
    Water temperature of 20C within 200km of North Pole,
    no ice left at either pole.
    Mass extinction in the sea due to methane hydrates.
    +6 degrees:
    Fireballs will rain from the sky and we will all be dead.

    What can we do to change this "sad ending"?
    We need to cut our CO2 emission with over 90%
    in less than 7 years. 
    We have the knowledge and solutions.
    We only need will.
    Educate yourself.
    Demand change.
    ACT.
    NOW.


    Ink drawing by Silly Daddy Comic artist,
    Joe Chiappetta  
    that shows the Silly Daddy ponder on the meaning of global warming


    With this highly discussed global issue at hand, it's no surprise
    that finally our government has launched
    "NO PLASTIC" day
    on every Saturday in the beginning of year 2010.
    Nowadays I always try my very best to carry the tote bag and ask for NO plactic bag.
    And when I having take away (dapao), I bring my own plastic container.
     I will choose to eat at the stall instaed of take-away if I forget to bring my container.
    What a "incovenience" truth to me but I believe this small little act will help the earth.
    So why not? 

    Besides, I also participate in the returning of empty skin care containers
     to merchants such as Origins and Kiehls.
    Some photos during the said campaign.



    Some of my empty bottles collected as follow:



    To encourage consumers to return these empty Origins containers,
    they are giving samples of skin care in sachet.
    Origins also accept those containers from other brands.
    I feel very proud that Origins shows such good effort to allow us
    to return those containers which would then be recycle in oversea
    with specific procedures.


    Myself at the Kiehl's store recycle bin
    with Kiehl's containers.

    Now, I would also like to share about this
    ECO-FRIENDLY "LOVE WORLD" SLOGGI


    Picture by Nuffnang.


    Though I have heard about Sloggi having the eco-friendly range
    in of the Triumph workshop
    I attended last year, but I try to find out more in Sloggi Malaysia site.

    Ecological friendly fabrics,
    with groovy and fun designs, no longer constraint to "brown or plain colours"
    Sloggi has added colours to the 2010 Spring collection, 
    at the same time offers great comfort and
    a auperb fit for all day long. Creating a "Wow" effect to all ladies!

    One of the material use in the Sloggi "Love World" range
    is known as YARN, produced by 100% recycled plastic bottles!
    I believe this required investment on clean technology to transform waste to
    reusable high quality material.

    Four simple reasons that could
    make me to "fall-in-love" with Sloggi "Love World" range:


    "Environmental Responsible" efforts by Sloggi
    to bring out this "Love World" range is awesome!

    Chic and fun designs, delighting the owners

    Colours add some "flavours" to the recycled material

    Great Comfort, is always the assurance given by Sloggi
