Films & Food!!!

Both movies are based on books, I prefer the second one more...
Confessions of a Shopaholic
I was amazed reading reviews of some bloggers saying they like this movie, especially when they actually came from guys! So how can I miss this movie??? Well, I watched this two weeks ago but kept the review till today... So you know what I mean, right?
I like the main guy, but I thought the main girl was a bit too old-looking for that kinda character. And unfortunately, I think they shown not enough of the 'shopaholic' part of her... Very disappointed with that, honestly. The entire story is just too expected...
But well, there is just one scene I really love, which is the dancing part! Love that part so much, I laughed like SO SO LOUD in the cinema!

He's Just Not That Into You
Obviously, I wanted to watch this movie just because of Jennifer Aniston. I actually expected it to be another cheesy love movie or something. But I was so wrong!
The story (or stories) isn't too fantastic, but somehow they are not too cheesy, very cool, very funny and touching! And Great script too! I think the best part is them being very 'real'. It really shows lots of the real thing in a girl or a guy's mind! Like the obvious one, whether to call a guy or wait for him to call you thingy... You feel so like yourself watching it! Almost everything in the movie could happen to us! And I actually cried when Ben Affleck proposes in the movie!
And the cast, you can't beat that you see... You have Jen, Ben Affleck (though I'm not a fan of him), Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johanssen, Jeniffer Connolly, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long, Bradley Cooper, etc... It's like a dream team!
Love this movie, definitely A MUST WATCH!

I just accidently tried having my meals at the following restuarants and found them really good, so it's gotta be good food but wihout any nice pictures since they were all taken with my mobile phone...
Ccozi & Friends
Yea I know that name sucks, and worst thing is, it's actually a Korean restaurant, or to be more accurate, should be a stall located on the F1 Asian Avenue (or La-La Land in my term). I've heard about the rice balls being really nice before going to the restaurant myself.
One day I just decided I wanted some rice and to me Korean food is nothing if it's not for their rice. So I went to Ccozi & Friends and totally fell in love with it. Their rice, or do you call them Bulgogi, was really good and filling! I had the Tuna & Kimchi one the other day, and then I had the Spicy Shirmp one yesterday with Karen.With some vegetables and oyster mushrooms, the Bulgogi are both fantastic and filling! Karen had some lunchbox which looks pretty good too. I also ordered this chicken skewer which was not too bad too! :)Lazy to put caption lar... But I'm sure you feel hungry looking at them! :p
I think the best thing is the fact that the price was so reasonable! To me, Korean food in Malaysia means EXPENSIVE! But here, they sell bulgogi starting RM10, and lunchbox from RM9! Isn't that cheap? Their special Korean tea is RM1 per cup and you can refil as much as you want! So yea, although I'm trying not to eat too much rice, but Ccozi & Friends will definitely be my first choice whenever I have a crave for rice!

Canton-i 香港粥面家
It's a relatively new restaurant in Sunway Pyramid. Ducum and I have wanted to try it for a while, but we were worried it's going to be freaking expensive. Well from the deco and all, it really looks like that mah...The fancy-looking Cnaton-i.
So that day we decided we should just go! Being porridge lovers as we are(ohyeah, especially HK-style porridge), we ordered the Intestines & Fish Porridge(炸大肠鱼片粥) and the Intestines Porridge(状元及弟粥), plus a chili salt Deep Fried Sotong(椒盐鱿鱼须) to share. We love the porridge! It so nice I feel like they had blended the rice before cooking them! Ducum just couldn't stop saying how nice it is! Hahaha... Well she can't always go there for the porridge though, because it's at least RM9.80 for a bowl of porridge, unless if she wants the plain porrdige with dried scallop, which is RM4.00. The Deep Fried Sotong was not too bad actually, only thing was, we ter-makan a few pieces with the whole bunch of salt on it! Yucks~!Food are not too bad, but the drinks are a bit too pricy for that kinda quality. Even Kim Gary does better.
The two very satisfied customers...
They also serve HK-sytled noodles, rice, dim sums, dessert, etc. Can try lar~!

Actually... I still have more to blog about, but sorry lar, have to owe you guys first for now, have some work to do first.... Ciao for now~!
