I went to the cinema near my home to watch the movie 300 with jolenesiah because I'd told her that I will watch a movie tonight with her. But I just couldn't believe my eyes that the tickets to this movie is always sold out. Yea the last time I wanted to buy 2 tickets for this movie was last thursday and they were sold out. I wanted to book tickets this afternoon but they were sort of sold out since it was stated on the cinema's website. So jolenesiah and I decided to head to the cinema 4 hours before the movie. And imagine that the tickets were almost sold out. What left was 2 seats of the upper centre row and a few rows right in front of the screen. No joke. There were people buying tickets right up to the screen. Man... we were 4 hours before the screening and we got no good seatings? Whatever, we just bought the tickets ...
In the middle of the movie, I just cringed to my seat. I just couldn't withstand some of the violent scenes; I can't remember the scenes at the moment. But I don't think this movie is controversial at all; Spartan represents Bush and the Persians as Iraqis? Not at all. Bush's definition of terrorism is defending your own country from him. But the Spartans are just simply defending their country from invasion. The story is just as simple as that. And the lessons are plainly stated in the dialogues of the characters like we have to fight for justice and we need to protect what we treasure most. So what is so controversial about this movie?
I think the Sin City movie is as violent as this movie but I thoroughly enjoy these 2 movies.

I had a good time on last Sunday because I was one of my friend's bridemaids - sort of - to give hurdles to the groom before entering the bride's house. My friend, the mastermind, made him do 30 pushups ... and then let him drink some coke mixed with sugar, dried chilli, salt, lime and vinegar. It was interesting. The most interesting part was getting two tops. Yea basically the guys had to take off their tops and the groom was given a chinese brush and ink to confess his love on their backs. Bwahahaha .. That was the funniest part. And then we asked the groom some questions... We pegged him when he can't answer the questions. That was only in the morning.
I was very looking forward to the evening because that will be an inofficial reunion for me since I have not seen my ex-collegmates for more than one year. I don't miss them but friends are friends. Yea .. they went to Genting without me. And one of my friends from Thailand showed up for the dinner. Imagine him asking for his bridemaids money even though he's a guy and just because he's from the bride's side??? My god. We were so damn happy that my friend/ bride didn't serve any sharksfin soup. And she got a small Malaysian Nature Society tag that stated that she doesn't serve sharksfin as a support to marine sustainability. We were so happy because we were so worried that we must eat sharksfin since we don't like to waste food. I for sure won't even touch the sharksfin should she serves. So we ended up eating braised chicken with herbs and shiitake mushrooms. It was delicious. Can you imagine some not 5-star hotel like The Legend Hotel serving good food, which actually bested Nikko Hotel? I have not tried all of Nikko Hotel's food but had their lunch for seminars before. They suck. Legend Hotel was much better in the 'edibility' level. I really enjoyed my friends' company. We reminisced of our past and scrutinize each other's growth especially like me who doesn't know what's a G-string to an investment savvy person .... to the Kayu Ajaib [magic wood] who is always late for appointment. I heard she almost missed her bus to Genting ... to the bride who got married on that day. How time flies. maybe the next time we meet will be one of our friend's wedding again.....
I will always cherish the moments we shared together until the day I only live in memories.
Panda lai lai [come come]
Saturday, March 10, 2007
Not being long winded - i'm extremely exhausted. i'm running out of strength and sleep. i have not been getting enough of sleep for 2 weeks. dark eye rings prevailed on my fair skin but now i'm so pale that the panda eyes are so obvious.
today, went to do some business but failed. right. going to see a client next week. must close a deal. no matter what i don't care...
i went for a last minute dinner with my coursemate. bwahaha. he bought me dinner. thank u very muchie. and then he brought along friend that has become popular due to a reality show and i got no idea who he is. my friend's jaw dropped when i replied him innocently that i don't know who's this friend of his. even when we sat on one table, i still don't think he's popular. that's because all famous people are just normal human beings. they have normal lives like we do. so that's why i don't understand why paparazzi goes after them.
get a life, people.

Today, with a happy smiling face entered the office to collect my free tickets but only to be told that the tickets were finished distributing. Excuse me? If that's the case, why did I receive your stupid congratulatory email saying I got the ticket awaiting me to be collected between yesterday and today between 10 am and 10 pm? I was extremely disappointed not because I was dying to watch, just because the sponsor is not honest enough. I just feel cheated or deceived by their words. If you know you can't provide tickets to all people who registered for a free ticket, then say so. Don't let us get loose in a stupid wild goose chase where you are laughing so hyena-tically observing us. Many sponsors also give out free tickets but they state "only 20 tickets [let say] will be given away on first come first serve basis." At least, it is stated that 20 tickets will be given away. And these people were lining up up early in the morning. If you, YTL sent an email to people like me, we thought, we were chosen for the tickets. We don't need a damn congratulatory email to inform us the redemption time and venue. We want to know if we got it or not. I'm going to express my disappointment to the sponsor.
Is this what I call ethical?
Draw your own house
What's the meaning of my house?
Based on your drawing and the 10 answers you gave this is a summary of your personality:
Your house tells the world that you ought to be a leader. You are a freedom lover and a strong person. You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. Once you have a problem, you need a friend with you. Your life is always full of changes.
You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. You see the world as it is, not as you believe it should be.
You added a flower into your drawing. The flower signifies that you long for love. It also safe to say that others don't see you as a flirt. You don't think much about yourself.

200g shelled pistachios, toasted and finely chopped
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
120g butter, melted
240g chocolate, chopped
780g cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cups plus 2 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp salts
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
120g chocolate, chopped
1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp heavy cream
1. For the crust: combine chopped pistachios, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter in a small bowl. Wrap a 22cm cardboard cake circle with plastic wrap. Carefully press the nut mixture onto the cake circle, making sure to cover it completely. Cover and refrigerate for at least for 1 hour.
2. For the cake: Preheat the oven to 160 C. Encase the outside of a 22cm round springform pan in a luminium foil and set aside. Have ready a large roasting pan and kettle of just-boiled water.
3. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate gently over a double boiler. Set aside to cool.
4. Beat cream cheese, sugar and salt with a mixer on low speed until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add cream and vanilla extract. With the mixer running on low speed, gradually add melted chocolate and mix thoroughly.
5. Pour the batter into the pan, then place the pan in the bigger roasting pan. Transfer to the middle oven rack, and pour boiled water into the roasting pan until it comes halfway up the side of the springform pan.
6. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until the top is just set. The cake should jiggle slightly when the pan is tapped. Remove pan from the oven and cool on a rack. Cover with aluminium foil and refrigerate overnight.
7. For the ganache topping: Bring the cream to a boil, then pour over chopped chocolate in the bowl. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Set aside.
8. To assemble: Loosen cheesecake by carefully running a warm, dry knife around the inside edge of the springform pan. Unhinge the sides of the pan and remove. Leave the springform pan bottom under the cheesecake.
9. Invert the pistachio crust onto the top of the cheesecake and carefully peel off the cake circle and plastic wrap while gently pressing the crust into the cheesecake.
10. Place a serving plate on top of the crust, then invert the cheesecake. Remove the springform bottom that is now at the top. Slide a knife under it, if necessary. Pour the ganache on the cheesecake and spread to cover the top. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios, if desired.
11. Refrigerated for several hours or better yet, overnight.
