PhiQue is back from Sydney!

I got a mad surprise when my sister called me on Xmas Eve. "Kakak! Don't tell Mama and Abah I am in Singapore!" was her first line. She was so hush hush about coming back. But somehow I got a gut feel about it coz my eye was twitching non-stop! And she's still the same ol' PhiQue u all know lorr.... Same ol' personality.

She missed Singapore food, so here we are at Afghanistan for breakfast the very next day. See how much she can eat now!!! Hahaha.

Avatar Me!!!!

My friend Liza and I have just got home from hanging out at Vivo. It was nice meeting up with your good friend after so long. I still feel we have the same vibe we had eons ago during Secondary School. Haha! We had fun! Here's a Super Silly Spontaneous Video of us! Liza called me a 'Jungle Girl' due to what I was wearing....And She asked me to do an 'Avatar'-ed "Don't come back!!" at the end!! Haha! Totally spontaneous!! Ok Seriously, I'm so obsessed with Avatar.


Hon and I went on a Hot Date last night. We booked tickets to Avatar 3D and damn! It was AWESOME!!! My heart was actually pumping throughout most of the scenes. And I actually awed in amazement at the CGI graphics and animation! Wow! Just magnificent!

Sheikha's Top Ten Facts on Avatar
1. Money-minded scoundrels destroys the peace of everything.
2. I would love to ride on one of those zooming flying creatures. Universal Studios should dedicate a whole space and create Pandora with those flying birds, so that I can get a ride on them soon. =)
3. In my opinion, parents should not bring children younger than 5 years old to watch it. One cried so loudly in the cinema due to the scary creatures.
4. I thought that Jake will want to convert to a na'vi waaay before the ending and leave his old life or being a crippled behind. If only that was possible, i bet he'll do it.
5. Trudy Chacon (Michelle Rodriguez), the helicopter pilot is HOT!
6. All in all, it's ALWAYS the humans who are causing much disastrous disruption to Mother Nature. So many movies with hidden meanings are actually blaming the humans. So, please wake up, Humans! Save the Earth!
7. I would LOVE to live on Pandora. Everything is glowing and neon. Even the steps you walked on the tree would glow. Even the spinning insects glow! It's a magical world!! I want to live in it!! Disney/Universal Studios, hear my pleas! Create Pandora!!! It will be a sell-out!
8. Tsu'Tey is so humble and non-egoistic! Even when Jake steals his girlfriend, he accepts it in the end. Even when they confessed they made love, he was angry only for a short while and forgives Jake. Haizzz... the born of the soft-spot guy.
9. The war scenes made my heart thump so so so so so hard, I actually want to be in the movie and fight those nasty humans!
10. The ultimate one-liner best script goes to.....Grace's "I need to get some samples" when she was still in pain from being shot. Hehehe!

There you go!!! My Top Ten Facts on Avatar! I am now very 'kemaruk' aka obsessed with the movie that I even AVATAR MYSELF!!! Hwahwahwahwa!! I am in love with the neon-blue bodies and graphics la.... Fantasy movies always make my day!

How I avatar-ed myself..... Gorgeous blue face of Neytiri.

Eyes are the windows to the soul..... I see you.

So I start.... I see you.

And I have AVATAR'ed myself (using Photoshop)!!!! Hahahahaha!


Come next year Fabruary, SheZai is going to KL again, Putrajaya to be exact. For holiday? Nyeahhhh.. Maybe... But more for this...

The Putrajaya Night Marathon 2010!!!

Hon is going to participate in the half-marathon (21km) while I'll run the 7.7km. Putrajaya AT NIGHT is gonna be magical!!! Just like Pandora!! (ok ok enough about Pandora already Sheikha!!) Yes, U can research it for yourself. Putrajaya at night is awesome!!!

Ok Going out with my Babe Liza now for a Girls' Day Christmas Day out!! More updates soon! Check on back!

Old Dogs

The above video is pretty lame ass funny. Seriously, the above snippet of "Old Dog" reminds me of the good ol' days of comical adventure any child will fall in love with. Pete Hammond of Boxoffice gave the film 3/5 stars, and concluded, "Old Dogs may not reach the box office heights of Wild Hogs but its fun family friendly attitude should guarantee a healthy holiday haul." It also reminds me of the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen days when they were pre-pubertic actresses acting in "Two Of A Kind". Still remember that movie TEN years ago?

Details of 'Old Dogs' Movie

Sypnosis: Two best friends — one unlucky-in-love divorcee (ROBIN WILLIAMS) and the other a fun-loving bachelor (JOHN TRAVOLTA) — have their lives turned upside down when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of six-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The not-so-kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the twins (newcomers ELLA BLEU TRAVOLTA and CONNER RAYBURN), leading to one debacle after another, and perhaps to a new-found understanding of what’s really important in life.

Why my husband is the best husband in the world.....

Hubbies are the best thing that can happen on earth. Well, yes, maybe getting married is, but to know your hubby inside out is possibly the best thing that can make a marriage work. As always, SheZai still upkeep our 'forgive and forget' rule and our 'arguments' never lasted more than one day, or maybe even one hour, or maybe even so rarely nowadays. We seldom argue, which makes me worried sometimes. Sure, arguments make a marriage interesting but it has to be on both sides, like a debate. And when the couple finally reaches a consensus, with one party agreeing to disagree, ahhh.. that's when you know you have achieved something. For us, it's like we keep on making fun of/with each other and we always talk about stuff from A to Z. Best lah married life!!!!!

Why my hubby is the best hubby in the world?!?! Firstly, he really takes care of me and will never fail to include me in his daily life story. He tries to insert me in conversations, which I find quite amusing, though I admit I am really shy at times when he does that. For example, "My wife also did this this this......." Secondly, he always entertain me!!! And we will end up entertaining each other with our silly jokes. He is street-smart and also book-smart. He loves being among friends and is so people-oriented. He works his ass off but also spends enough time with me and MIL. He has seen me at my worst and at my prettiest.

He understands the trials and tribulations of a wife. When he knows that I am busy with work/school, he took the initiative to do the laundry, iron the clothes, wash the toilet, vacuum the floor and do basic housework. And I am very appreciative of him doing that. I can see the sparkle in his eyes when we talk about children. He NEVER fails to SMS me every single working day. "Dear I'm on my way to work." and "Dear I have reached work already. Love you... etc etc." By doing this, I am worry-free and knows that he is safe. I reciprocate the same too. The previous post is a very apt example of marriage. =) Am loving that image.

There's lots more I could say, but I do have to ensure that I don't foster any egotism. Just one more thing. He does not forget about our wedding anniversary. He spurs on just to get me a belated present. I did not ask for it and was quite comfortable with my old Sony Ericsson K610i phone. Furthermore, i do not want the hassle of adapting to using a new phone. But then, he insisted that he buys for me this...... . . . . . . . . . . . .

16GB 3Gs iPhone. He has converted me.

Back from Shanghai Night and Chocolate Mousse pleases my palette and soul.

What happened before this.......
I was working from 7am to 2pm. Went to the library to return overdue books, bought a last minute accessory and then headed home by 3.30pm. Showered and went to Tampines Mart to find a last minute salon to style my hair. Reached home by 4.30pm and I had only 1 hour plus to make up and get changed! Rush Rush. I did my own make-up in that 1 hour and prayed that nothing will go wrong. Luckily nothing went wrong: Eyelashes sticks, contact lens non-irritable, eyebrows are even, face contoured, powder and blusher an even tone. Kudos!!! Took a cab to Meritus Mandarin Hotel and reached on time. Phew! That was close. So the night was spent snapping away.....

Me with Yani.

Me with Hui Eng.

Me with Ivy, Jennfer and Faye.

Me with Michelle and Shahidah!

With a few of my DPTP23 coursemates.

A lovely night.

If you're wondering why they're wearing Cheongsam, the theme was Shanghai Night. And we're to be dressed in Black, Red and Gold. The rest of the pictures turned out quite dark due to no flash. =( Sorry!

Hon's Birthday Treat by Mom

Mom treated us to Newton's Seafood for Hon's belated Birthday. Thank You, Mom! We ordered a feast for 4, at Hon's special favourite vendor. I prefer Dad smiling like that. Seems cartoony. Haha!

And the food is served! Here we have the siput sedut cooked in black sauce. I thought Lemak would taste better. But oh well, we can't be choosers. Hon's fave vegetable, the Kailan. And the Sambal Stingray is heavenly I tell you!!! Medium is not enough! I think I can eat the whole plate of Sambal Stingray just like that. Mouth-wateringly Superb!!

And here comes the King. Chilli Crab. Huge fleshy claws that just melts in your mouth. And the fried bread aka mantau (is that what you call it?) is a MUST to eat with the chilli crab.

You can still see the smoke wafting through the air from the dish.

Look at how big the fleshy crab claw is. Well, it isn't snow crab, which is even more expensive and fleshier. Sri Lankan crabs soothes the throat just fine. =)

One last look.... Whop!!!!! Hold it, hold it, HOLD IT THERE!! Something looks familiar in this picture. Can you guess what it is?

Let's try that again.

One more time..

Did the poll on the left? There you go! Rings a bell, doesn't it? Well, the answer is this! Crab's Claw! hehehe! Thanks to those who did the poll. 11% voted for fish eggs, 33% voted for Jupiter ad Sun in the Solar System. 11% voted for sperm going into an egg. !?!??! 33% got it right and 11% said none of the above. Good try folks! Another Guess the Picture Game coming up soon!

Mac & Cheese

Mac & cheese, the all-American favourite. I decided to give it a go. It SHOULD be easy, I thought. Did a research over the Internet and came across a recipe I thought I could try out. Bought the ingredients and it's time to roll. Mustard and Worcestershire Sauce really adds a twang to it. Oh yes, the breadcrumbs really makes a difference too.

So here are the ingredients all laid out. I foresee it's gonna be rich and creamy. Wanted to buy non-fat, but full cream beckons.

First we melt the butter, then add flour. Love that smell.... aaah.

Add milk, W Sauce and mustard and stir. Add cheese and let it melt.

Meanwhile, boil the macaroni. Lay them out nicely on a baking tray.

Pour the cheese sauce over the macaroni and add MORE CHEESE!

Sprinkle heaps of breadcrumbs over it and bake! Just wanna brown the top so have the oven at high for ten mins flat.

Walah! Cheesy melting Mac & Cheese! Eat it while it's hot or it will be very MUAK.
