Cheetah-licious cheetah girls ( one world review)

30 11 2008

I just watched the cheetah girls : one world. This was a good movie. It really got me guessing. Motives were clearly shown and there were funny parts here and there which is always good. I enjoyed it very much. I don’t think I should spoil it for those who have yet to see it but then again why didn’t you see it in the first place?

So, the cheetah who was missing in action (MIA), Galleria went to collage in London. Yup, she got into cambridge university. ( In other words Raven-Symoné didn’t sign the contract for the third movie). Anyways, the girls go to India and they have to compete for the part. Spoiler: Chanel wins. Another Spoiler: in the end she’s not the lead.  HAHA! watch the movie to find out :P.

I am being so mean. I know but its the truth. Chanel and Aqua find love in India. Dorinda, understanding that long distance isn’t easy as she experienced it in the second movie ( go watch it to understand), trys to protect her friends and a co-star.  However, she realises that it doesn’t matter if it is long distance….it is still love. I think that is a good lesson that should be learnt. Either than friendship and doing anything to protect that friendship.

I love the cheetah girls. They thought me valuable lessons in all their movies and for that I am extremely grateful. Infact, moments before the movie I was in a dilema. After the movie, I sloved my problem.

Thank you Cheetah girls

keeping alert

30 11 2008

The treat of terrorism is very very real. You seriously don’t need a 15 year old girl tell you that. The thing is here in Singapore, the treat of terrorism is more real than what we would like it to be. The first of our people has been a victim of terrorism in Mumbai.  That was the biggest wake up call. We are at risk. We are at huge risk. We have had the safety of good security both internal and external and also security from natural diasters. We have been pampered and spoilt thinking that no danger can come our way. Now, one of our own is a victim of a terrorist attack. We should open our eyes real big. After Mas Selamat our eyes were so big, some people didn’t need glasses any more. The our eyes started to get smaller.

I say our eyes should remain huge after this event. Anything, ANYTHING can happen





How human are we?

29 11 2008

The Mumbai incident is said to be under control according to the news. The death toll: 195. The only Singapore hostage: dead. She is the first Singaporean to be a victim to terrorism according to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. And Yes, I finally understood what caused it.

Singapore is not big on terrorism and I am guessing, neither is the rest of the world.  I understand terrorism. It is when people feel that their are treated unfairly or feel they need to give a message to the  world. I can recall talking about terrorism in general to a muslim friend.  She said she thinks that people kill other people because thet believe their religion is the best. The religion that saves. Okay, I get that people believe that their religion promises slavation. I get trying to promote their religion and bring in new followers. I don’t get killing people to do it.

Terrorist are also people who feel that they aren’t treated fairly and find no other way to voice their opinions and thoughts. So they kill.

For either the reason, I don’t find killing very effective. I don’t find the whole idea of violence effective. It does nothing but cause more promblems and the whole world hating people from the same racial group as the terrorist.

Sigh. But terrorist are just people. We, the other human beings of this earth, have to understand that. We are human beings right?

If we are, prove it to me.





If god was one of us

29 11 2008

just thought I put this up

joan osbourne-if god was one of us

If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in jesus and the saints and all the prophets

And yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
He’s trying to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in rome

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if god was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in rome

The event on everyone’s mind right now

29 11 2008

Right now, according to my sources, 130 people are dead in Mumbai and the only Singaporean hostage is now dead. I am still unclear about how this all started. Not everything is clear to me. Articles are telling me it is the work of a terrorist group. I would really apreciate it if someone can give me an idoit proof explaination. Just leave it as a comment below. Thanks.

Today, while at my relative’s, I recieved word that the only Singaporean hostage was dead. It was THE saddest thing I heard all day. I just….I can’t remember what I was feeling. I can’t even remember what I wanted to say. It was like…..blank.

I remember having a post time time back on life being interesting by having violence. It is completely true. If you are in Singapore right now, I dare you tomorrow go to the market and just listen in to some aunties. They will be talking about that ‘poor poor girl who is now dead’.  You listen. It is people like that…no…scarp that. It is the entire world can’t live without drama in the world. Mumbai is the lastest drama.  It is the saddest reality.  You knw how all those Miss Universe contestants talk about wanting world peace. Have you ever noticed that over the past 56 years, all the Miss Universe contestants talk about world peace…but the world never seems to get more peaceful? I don’t call what is happening in Mumbai peaceful.

There I go ranting again…but it is all true. Miss Universe has been around 56 years and everyone talks about world peace but no one does anything about it.  Ellen was doing her comedy show and she was going on about 24/7 news. She thinks that there should be a scroll that just goes ‘everything is getting worse’ and to a certain extant, I agree.  When things get worse, people have more to talk about and its sad. It is sad that we have nothing else to talk about.

I feel really sorry for that poor girl and her family.





The miracle of Christmas

28 11 2008

Music is magical. I have to say that the songs that have stood the test of time are Christmas carols of all kinds.  From Little drummer boy to Silent Night. From the Christmas song to The first Noel. Christmas carols have really stood the test of time. These are the songs many people around the world will never forget. They will live on more than 100 years from now and I am amazed by that. Christmas is celebrated almost in every part of the world.  Here in Singapore, me and my non-christian friends exchange christmas gifts almost every year.

It is not only Christmas Carols which amazed me. It is the whole ‘Kahusa’ they call Christmas. It brings people together, this season of giving. It is really amasing to me. One event can bring so many people together. Anyone rememeber th tsunamia in 2004. Artist came together to sing to help the victims out.

With trouble in Mumbai and Bangkok and I have no I dea if that war with Iraq is still going on but I just want to say to people.

Do they know its christmas time at all?
