Body of a possessed one

Friday, October 30, 2009

What a good way to celebrate Halloween by making a trip to the cinemas to catch a horror movie. Nevertheless, watching a horror/thriller movie for the 2nd time is definitely not helping me to overcome my fear for spooky stuff. Not even when you have a bombshell such as Megan Fox to please both male & female audiences. Wanting to accompany WL so badly that I've decided to go against my will to give it another shot. Together with our ex colleague & his gf, it was more like a double date movie outing.

This movie opens with Amanda Seyfried's character, "Needy" narrating on how she was sent to the asylum due to an incident with her best friend, Jennifer. Jennifer, the typical popular high school girl who only has eyes for hot guys suddenly got possessed by a demon. Her demonic powers make her look radiant as ever but however, she needs to feast on human flesh to stay youthful. Or she would look haggard & drained out as if she was on withdrawal symptoms from drugs.

Overall, the plot is nothing great. But the entire movie was too graphic for me to bear. Especially when Megan Fox has her long black tresses covering her face & drenched in blood - sniggering slyly revealing her long, sharp fangs - ready to prowl on unsuspecting preys. And you see her going wild; seducing the guys with her uber sexy body & then tearing their flesh apart, then leave the body behind to rot. No doubt her bikini body is to die-for (both males & females), the story itself didn't do justice. In the end, the devil got out of hand & you see "Needy" taking revenge.

I'm not giving out more spoilers here but if you're into blood & gore, here's another movie for you. After all, it's the month of Halloween. Time to get spooky~

Getting married

Thursday, October 01, 2009

It's been great pleasure to announce that my mum's sis (aka my aunt) is finally getting married. Or should I say, already married. =) The long wait is finally over.

My aunt & her future hubby had chosen to be wedded at the Buddhist temple at Brickfields for both the blessing & the marriage registration. It's like killing two birds in one. Hehe. It is indeed an eye-opening experience for me; seeing couples officially tying the knot upon the marriage certificate is signed & sealed.

Couples were blessed at the Buddhist temple with two monks chanting prayers for 5-10 mins. Meanwhile, family & friends are welcomed to join in the praying - in return giving donations in kind to support the welfare of the temple caretakers.

As soon as the prayers were completed, we ascended the stairs up to the registrar office. We sat at the waiting area quietly while waiting for our turn to be called in for the registration ceremony. There was a glass window at the judge's office facing the waiting area in which we could see through. It was definitely nerve-wrecking for both my aunt & her future hubby cuz they couldn't wait to settle everything once & for all.

Just to create a less tensed environment, I persuaded them to pose for the camera. =P

Few minutes later, it was our turn. Or should I say, my aunt & her life partner's turn to enter the office. The couple sits across the judge while witnesses from each side of the couple's family/friends sit opposite each other as shown below. As you can see, my mum was nominated as my aunt's sole witness.

As the judge read the oath, my aunt & her partner fidgeted anxiously on their seats - probably thinking of what to say or what to do when the moment arrives. Once the couple had declared "I do", they were told to exchange rings for one another. Next, they moved on to signing the marriage certificate followed by signatures from both parties' witnesses. Voila! They're pronounced a married couple~ Congratulations! The judge was courteous enough to take a few seconds posing for the camera with my aunt & her hubby. =)

Simple as it was, the entire process was quite an experience for me. It makes me wonder about the future when it'll be my turn to walk that aisle. Such a huge dutiful commitment...phew! Anyways, perhaps it's still to early to ponder over it & get myself worked up for nothing. When the time comes, I supposed I'll be more than ready. ;)
