[MOVIE REVIEW]: Dawn of the Planet of The Apes

Saturday, July 19, 2014


Hey everyone! It's been a while since I last posted about the latest movies especially since I started working but thanks to Nuffnang I was able to catch Dawn of The Planet of The Apes at TGV Pavillion. Although it was quite a distance for me to watch the movie at Pavillion but how can I not watch my favourite monkey Caesar!

~ REVIEW ~


The movie actually revolves after the first movie where Caesar leading his family of smart apes into the mountains far away from the humans. However due to the genetic testing on apes and the drugs, humans were infected by a virus known as the Similian Flu. So many humans perished due to this flu which cause the collapse of human civilization, martial law, civil unrest and the economic collapse of every country in the world. Caesar now leads and governs the new generation of apes in a community located in the Muir Woods and he has a mate who is pregnant and a son named Blue Eyes *love how they connect the sequel with the first movie since the first genetic difference with Caesar and normal apes is the blue eyes*

Anyway, they met some humans in the woods which are our human actors which are the remaining humans in San Francisco who are genetically immune to the virus!


These humans were actually in search for the dam which could help generate power for them to contact other survivors around the world as well as to continue surviving. Humans unlike apes need light and other power to survive. 

The ape community did not take well to their presence and Caesar ordered them not to return. Anyway, these humans went back and reported about talking apes in the mountains and the story goes on to the human hero...Malcolm who trusted the apes and feels that he can communicate with them. Anyhow the story goes on to the a part of the humans and the apes working together and also another part which rebels and wants to destroy one another to survive. 

I love how the movie portrays today's society where there are some who help one another to achieve each others needs and goals while others have the mindset that only one can be the winner. The collaboration between apes and humans could actually work out if not for some people/apes that do not give chance to one another and cause the terrible war between apes and humans that caused numerous lives to be lost.

~ HATERS ~



Ok.. I seriously hate this monkey/ape since the first movie. If you watch the first movie you will know him as Kobo, the ape that was experimented on by humans which caused him to hate humans very much! He is seriously evil and cunning! I don't want to spoil the movie for all of you so you really have to watch the movie to see how evil this monkey is. 





I don't like this character as well which is the human leader Dreyfus. Dreyfus do not trust the apes and Malcolm who believed in the apes which really also became one of the factors humans and apes fight in the huge war at the end of the movie. If only he learnt to trust apes... *sigh*

[ONLINE SHOPPING] Curated Clothing

Monday, July 14, 2014

Happy Monday my dear merry-goers! How's the weekend been treating you? Today I am here to introduce another online shopping website to suit your shopping pleasures! Introducing Curated Clothing, an online shopping website that uses the help of Tumblr!




Curated Clothing are a bunch of dedicated ‘fashion curators’ who bring you fashion trends and some unique
pieces at an affordable price. The site started off from their love for Tumblr and fashion, and has
eventually led to this. All pieces here are sourced from all over the world, and they hope you love
them as much as they do. For the time being, Curated Clothing only ship locally in Malaysia, but they hope to expand and go international one day.

The history of Curated Clothing actually started with three friends who meet on Tumblr from across the globe and their love for Tumblr and fashion resulted in curated pieces that they love and want to share with everyone! The site is based mainly in Malaysia but they are expanding to UK and US under a different name due to copyrights. 

Curated Clothing site offers inspired pieces (Zara, Asos, NastyGal, Stylenanda, you name it) and a lot of underrated designers from Korea, UK and US. Updates would come weekly and the team behind Curated Clothing is trying and working hard in 3 different time zones. Tumblr users also can get updated very easily!

Lots of pretty clothings

Compared to other online shopping sites, Curated Clothing site is actually very 'manual' as they do not use the cart-system which helps to reduce cost since they not only focus on fashion but also donate 10% of their monthly revenue to charity (from pet shelters to soup kitchens)



Order form

These are some of the clothings that really got my attention! Look at the details on these pieces :)

Please hit us with an email for further enquiries:

I really love the pieces available at Curated Clothing and the prices there are quite reasonable too! Check them out HERE

[SPONSORED POST]: Shills Miracle Lift Body Contour

Thursday, July 10, 2014



How are all my dear merrygoers doing today? Want to know a little secret to contour your body and firm up those flabby bits? Introducing Miracle-Lift Body Contour Control (Gen4) from Shills! 

I received one bottle of the Miracle-Lift body lotion from Hi-Shop to test out and review it for all you merry-goers! 

Credits

This is actually the 4th generation for the Body Contour Lotion which means it is improved four times compared to the first generation. 



~ PRODUCT DETAIL ~





Capacity: 250ml

Key Ingredients: L-Carnitine, Caffeine, Pine Bark Extract, Aescin (saponin), Peruvian Uncaria Tomentosa, Soy Isoflavones, Seaweed Extract, Algae Extract, Vitamin C Derivatives, Lecithin, Ginger Essential Oil.


The Shills Miracle-lift Body Contour Control 157% Up (4th Gen) is an all-round heating cream for toned skin and sculpted body contours. With specially added red algae extract, which penetrates into deep skin layers when massaged on skin, this product effectively shrinks cellulite, tightens, soothes and conditions skin, increasing skin elasticity while preventing the appearance of fine lines and sagging skin.

There are so many complicated and scientific ingredients in this body lotion so I'm going to explain what these ingredients are and how does it help improve your skin!


Not only that, the Shills Miracle-lift Body Contour Control also contain soy isoflavones which helps maintain healthy skin, slow down skin aging by reducing fine lines, and improve skin elasticity and firmness. 

The Vitamin C content in the body lotion is also very essential!! Vitamin C is easily absorbed by skin to help you achieve a deep whitening effect, and thus improve dull-looking skin for a healthy, even and brightened complexion. Quadraple-function coloured capsules firm and tone skin, increasing cell metabolism. Red, pink, blue and yellow micro capsules effectively tighten skin, maintaining healthy, firm and supple skin and preventing skin aging.


~ HOW TO USE ~




Directions for use: Massage appropriate amounts to required areas in circular movements. 

There are instructions on the back of the bottle and on the box showing how to effectively use the body lotion and shape up your body! I use it to firm up my flabby arms which are so difficult to tone as well as the inner thighs! You can also use it to firm up your buttocks and stomach. And no.. I'm not going to show you photos of how I massage my buttocks! 



~ MY REVIEW ~






Now my personal opinion on the Shills Miracle Lift Body Contour Lotion. The texture of the lotion is like regular lotion but slightly thicker with red dots of the red algae in it! It smells rather minty with a woody fragrance. I did not mind the fragrance of the body lotion. The first time I tried the lotion I could feel a slight tingling and burning sensation on my skin especially after I rub it in. 

What I really liked about this lotion is that is not greasy and sticky! I apply it at my targeted areas before I go to work and I really liked that it did not stick on my working clothes so *thumbs up* for that. I could see immediate results on my skin in terms of smoother and firmer appearance. The lotion really absorbs well into my skin and my skin felt so smooth after using it!

After using it for one week, I could feel my skin firming up and not as flabby as before. Mind you I did loose a lot of weight the past few years so my skin was rather saggy *Cries* However thanks to the body lotion from Shills, my skin now looks firmer and has a healthy glow to it!

*One tip: Try exercising after applying the lotion! You will definitely feel the burning sensation and it really helps you to sweat more and burn your fat at targeted areas! *

~ RATING ~


My rating for the body lotion for contouring and shaping my body is a 4 out of 5!

I was ushered to do my pedicure first by Christie. The pedicure section is cozy with three plump sofa chairs and they provide a lot of nail art magazines for you to refer to. While I get comfortable, I was asked if I have taken my lunch or if I would like anything to drink. I chose my favourite green tea to accompany me during my pamper session.
