Toy Story is a movie that I will never get bored off because, in my imagination, my collection of toys do talk to each other whenever I fall asleep(even until now hahaha).

When the toys were still with Andy, Bo Peep and several other toys were given away his sister as she grew out of them. Woody tries to save her but Bo Peep reassures him that part of being a toy is being taken away and they have to accept that everyone will go away soon. 

In the current days, Woody sneaks into Bonnie's backpack when she attends her kindergarten orientation, worried that she might get overwhelmed at the event. In her effort to cover her nervousness, Bonnie crafts a new toy she named Forky.

At home, Woody introduces Forky to the crowd. Forky seems obsessed with being in a garbage bin, the fact that he was a spork thrown into the bin before being rescued by Woody and presented to Bonnie. 

During a road trip with Bonnie and her family, Forky jumps out of the window and Woody being Woody, he also jumps out to rescue him. On their journey back to the RV parked at a nearby town, Woody finally manages to convince Forky that being a toy is a blessing.

In an antique store at the centre of the town, Woody spots Bo's lamp and as usual, Woody gets inside the store and starts looking for her. Inside the shop, Woody and Forky encounter Gabby and the Bensons. Gabby seems nice at first, wanting to take them to Bo when finally Woody realises that Gabby actually wants to obtain Woody's voice box. Forky was captured when they tried to escape the shop.

Stranded in the middle of the town where the RV left without him and Forky being captured, Woody reunites with Bo, who is now a drifter, a toy with no kid. With Bo's help and her gang of drifters, they devise a plan to save Forky.

Meanwhile, Buzz was also on his mission to save Woody.

Will the mission to save friends succeed?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 5.0/ 5.0. This one is certainly an adventure. You will be on an emotional roller coaster ride throughout the movie. There will be scary moments, sad ones and of course, lots of humour throughout the movie. I love the plot twist at the end of it. 

Cast: 5.0/5.0 Tom Hanks is here. Keanu is here too. So, yeah! 

Will I watch it again: I think I wanna watch it in IMAX soon.

With the same capacity and all the sophisticated lighting and decoration, Classic Hall allows the couple to unleash their creativity in decorating the space for their big day. 

The only thing that is lacking in this hall is the magical glass walkway. 

Garden Hall

Befitting her name, the hall is decorated as such that you'll have the same serene and tranquil ambience of an outdoor wedding, inside a fully air-conditioned and climate-controlled hall! I know that every single couple that opts for a garden wedding will always pray their hardest not to have the rain fall on their big day. Not the case here!

The hall could comfortably seat 250 people or 800 people in buffet seating.

People, get ready your best garden-wedding themed outfit for here you need not fear the unforgiving weather of Malaysia - come rain or wind or shine, you'll be taken care of.

Ok. With all those halls available for the choosing, MAGICA also offers an attractive range of wedding packages that include menus designed by renowned caterers, dedicated wedding specialists an event managers and more special discounts from the vendors.

Actually, the newlyweds only need to bring themselves here and choose their wedding concepts and MAGICA will assist them thoroughly.

Child's Play [Movie Review]

10:46 AM 18 Comments A+ a-

I remembered watching Child's Play in the late 80's with my uncle (on VHR and without my mum's knowing) and hated seeing life-sized dolls ever since - traumatised by the movie hahaha.
Rawlins GLAM, Child's Play, Thriller, Remake/ Reboot, Movie Review by Rawlins, Chucky
I watched almost all Chucky movies afterwards, even when it became more ridiculous and tacky - but I still feel scared of the doll despite being a grown up now. So, when I heard that the remake is coming up, I am intrigued to see the latest reboot of the horror monstrous doll.

SYNOPSIS
Child's Play Trivia
  • Directed by: Lars Klevberg
  • Produced by: David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith
  • Production companies: Orion Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, KatzSmith Productions
  • Distributed by: United Artists Releasing
  • Running time: 90 minutes
  • Rating: R (bloody horror violence, and language throughout)
  • No original cast or production members are working on the film
  • Budget: $10 million
  • Box Office: $14.1 million
  • Metascore:47
  • IMDb: 6.5/ 10
  • Tomatometer: 60%
An employee of 'Buddi' assembly factory in Vietnam killed himself after tampering with the safety features of the doll, in retaliation of a rude supervisor. 

In Chicago, Karen and her hearing-impaired son, Andy are just settling into their new department. Seeing that her son is not fitting well with the surroundings, Karen blackmails one of her colleagues to procure a defective Buddi doll and gives Andy the doll as an early birthday gift.
Rawlins GLAM, Child's Play, Thriller, Remake/ Reboot, Movie Review by Rawlins, Chucky
Rawlins GLAM, Child's Play, Thriller, Remake/ Reboot, Movie Review by Rawlins, Chucky

Andy tries to name the doll but the doll just calls himself as Chucky. Despite it being defective, Buddi helps Andy befriend Falyn and Pugg. The kids love Buddi for its ability to curse whereas the other Buddi dolls are not. The trio loves Buddi's company and keeps him with them all the time - playing time, watching horror movies together and playing pranks too. Chucky computes that the kids love the thriller movie so he tries to emulate the act of killing to please the kids. When Andy becomes mad at him when Chucky tries to stab Pugg, it confuses him.

Over time, Chucky becomes very protective of Andy. Chucky tries to kill the cat when the cat scratches Andy. One day, Andy finds the cat dead on the kitchen floor and Chucky admits to killing the cat, so it will never hurt Andy anymore. Shane, Karen's boyfriend don't like Andy and when he gets spooked by Chucky, Shane confronts Andy that leaves Andy in tears. Andy wishes for Shane to disappear from their lives and Chucky hears this. 
Rawlins GLAM, Child's Play, Thriller, Remake/ Reboot, Movie Review by Rawlins, Chucky
Chucky follows Shane home only to find that Shane is actually married and has a family. When Shane was outside taking down the Christmas lights, Chucky terrorizes Shane and ends up killing Shane. Chucky brings home a 'souvenir' for Andy.

This is where the terror begins for Andy, his mom and his friends. 

Will Andy be able to keep his 'best friend' away from him?
Rawlins GLAM, Child's Play, Thriller, Remake/ Reboot, Movie Review by Rawlins, Chucky

MY REVIEW
Plot: 2.0/ 5.0 Where should I start? I just don't like this remake/ reboot. Why should you remake an already good movie and then make it worse? The plot is predictable like any other horror movie. Only this one is not a horror movie, it is a thriller. No ghost whatsoever, Chucky is just a malfunctioned AI. It could have been better, much better with a better script and refined plot.

Cast: 3.0/ 5.0 The actors were ok. Not great. And somehow I think it was on the brink of being a parody to the original Child's Play. 

Will I watch it again: No. I will watch the original ones, but not this one. Ever. Again.

Butterfly Project 6th Birthday Party Brings Out The Best, and here's why

7:30 AM 17 Comments A+ a-

I know that pulling off any event and make it successful could be a stressful chore. And to have to be able to pull it off every single year is a multitude of greatness too.

As the Mamasan of all magical beings has said 'it takes a village' to have been to pull it off every single time, Ms Tammy Lim and her team managed to bring crΓ¨me de la crΓ¨me to the party. I know for a fact that I would have had so many stress ulcers in my mouth if I were in Tammy's place - to plan the party, to get sponsors to partake, to get participation and many more aspects to think of to hold such a huge event. 

Salute to Mamasan Tammy Lim and her team!

After having had the privilege to attend a few events held by Ms Tammy Lim, I could conclude that these are the recipes that Mamasan has been using to ensure that all her events a huge success, especially the current 6th Birthday Celebration for the Butterfly Project.

1) Have a grandeur theme 

Attending a themed party is always an excuse for me to make up and dress up. Heck! I just try to find any excuse to dress up and makeup hahaha. This year's theme is Floral Garden so I chose to attend the event as the Royal Peacock God (I just made that up hahaha). Thanks to my friends who gave me the idea and dressed me up. I also have to thank my entourage (Jae, Anggerek and Faisal) for assisting me in dressing up, driving me to the party venue and picking me up again once the event ended.
As usual, the Butterflies are such sporting crowd as every single magical being turned up as beautiful as a blooming flower in a vast carefully tended garden. Imagine every single soul of 100 butterflies arriving in their most glorified Floral theme outfit. 

2) Lavish decoration everywhere

First, I have to applaud the team for the choice of the venue. Vilej Damansara is the best party hall to hold an event - with such vast space and high ceiling, one could literally put up any decoration, no matter how tall and huge it would be. 
Kudos to the decoration team and sponsors (The Blossom Balloons for the beautiful balloons and Avant Garde Blooms for the amazing flower arrangements on the table) for bringing in the garden into the hall and making it magical and very insta-worthy! We as the magical beings of the Butterfly Project certainly felt at home with all these decorations.

3) Prepare a feast for magical beings

It is always a question that most people a hesitant to answer 'where or what to eat' right? 

And when it involves magical creatures descending from wherever they are to Earth to attend the 6th Butterfly Project Birthday party, JomParty had it right!
Look at all the spread of the grand feast that JomParty had prepared. It was a mix of fine dining and comfort food at its best and nobody was complaining. The feast was abundance and I like the fact that Lydia (owner of JomParty) and her staff were so fast in replenishing the food (we magical creatures eat a lot and fast).

4) Roll out engaging activities

Have you ever attended an event where the activities were near non-existent or almost put everyone to sleep?

That is one thing that will not be happening during an event with the Butterfly Project. The members were chatty much that at some points, the amazing and beloved all-time emcee, Leonard Dee have to force everyone to settle down and divert their attention to his announcements. 
The crowd were pleasantly engaged during the party when the Comedy Queen of Malaysia, Ms Joanne Kam shared her anecdotes about Malaysians and their antics. Everybody was laughing like nobody business at her jokes - she certainly carries her title well.
Befitting the theme of Floral Garden, Avant Garde Blooms transformed the hall into a magical garden. And then we were given the freedom to pick the blooms of our choice and craft it into our floral crown. With some guidance from Avant Garde Blooms staff, everybody was royalty with their own crown.

5) Bearing gifts

No one ever leaves empty-handed from the Butterfly Project's events. EVER.
This time around, everyone was showered with gifts - luxurious ones too. Be it on the chair or the table - the gifts are everywhere. Thanks to the amazing gift bearers [Yves Rocher, Macarons by MadeleineJomPartyAvant Garde BloomsThe Blossom BalloonsT-Sticks Malaysia & Butterfly Project].

The magical beings were pleased with the offerings. Haha.

And such were the recipes for the success of event management carried out by Mamasan Tammy Lim and her entourage of hardworking assistants as per concluded by my power of deduction.

Happy 6th Birthday to the most magical, adventurous and beautiful mythical and mystical beings of the Butterfly Project.

For many more years to come.

GLAM Staycation @ Sunway Velocity Hotel

7:30 AM 13 Comments A+ a-

It has been quite some time since I took a vacation. But the thing is, with my current job, I can't afford to take the time off from the office.

So, what do we do? STAYCATION ie staying in town for a vacation.

Me being me, I chose to stay in the city area but the traffic has to be tolerable and every single favourite place is nearby.

So, I chose to stay at SUNWAY VELOCITY HOTEL where it is just an 11-minute walk from a subway station, 4 km from landmark Merdeka Square, 5 km from the 88-storey Petronas Towers and it is connected to the Sunway Velocity Mall. I would say a prime location to explore KL!
Sunway Velocity Hotel, Lingkaran SV, Sunway Velocity, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. | TEL: +603 2726 3988 | FAX: +603 2726 3989
With all these amazing places within reach, you would say that I will be running around town exploring them. But NO. It was a staycation, so I will be staying in the hotel, enjoying all the facilities and eat all I can!

A vast lobby greeted me with fresh scented air and the happy smiling faces of the staff upon my arrival. The check-in was smooth and the staff even told me to try their latest tea-time specials available at Kaffeinate cafe at level 5.

The room was spacious. One of my friends forgotten to bring his toothbrush and he was so thankful that Sunway Velocity Hotel has the set in the bathroom.

Once I have done hanging my clothes in the room, I went down to Kaffeinate to try their tea-time specials. And from the pictures below, I know you can tell that I was a happy customer too. For the tea-time menu, they have a choice of juice and hot drinks, that comes with a croissant or its choice of a slice of the best cake available. As you can see, I chose to have the latte with a croissant and my friend chose to have the juice with the delicious and fluffy New York Cheese Cake.

Me being an avid movie-goer managed to force my friends to catch a movie at the theatre at Sunway Velocity Mall. We booked tickets for a 10 pm show.

In the meantime, as we have had very filling tea-time snacks, we decided to visit the fitness center and the pool on Level 16. My friend, who is a workout freak, in return, forced me to run a good 30 minutes on the treadmill while he was doing body toning and some weight lifting. "That's for the latte that you have just had," he said to me.

After the running session, I just couldn't stop myself from dipping into the swimming pool. It has that infinity pool feel. So, I decided to take a few videos and pictures here too.

After the movie, my friends and I decided to play rounds of Uno Attack before hitting the hay.

I almost missed Fajr prayer as the bed was so comfortable and the room was so silent that made me wanted to stay in bed longer. But when my tummy started growling, I know it was time to raid the breakfast at Kaffeinate on Level 5.
It was a full house when I arrived. I scouted the floor to find what I wanted and of course, I settled for nasi lemak, first! And there were more helpings after that - dim sums, noodles, fruits and coffees. I was there until I can't stuff any more food.

After another swim in the beautiful pool, sadly it was time for me to check out from the amazing Sunway Velocity Hotel and return to my old crib.

I need more staycation, just like this one, and soon. Owh. Here is the video of stayycation for your eyes only.
