Movie Review - Don't be Afraid of the Dark

Like I said, movie review is not my thing.

BUT, since I got SIX tickets to the premier of "Don't be Afraid of the Dark" I feel guilty if I do not say my thanks to all those who made possible.

Me n my 'date' for the night. hehe~
Wondering how I got it? Well, like Tony Teh said, "It's because she didn't join". Lols. Thanks for the movie Nuffnang, Churp2, and most importantly Tony Teh, Benjamin Foo and Yeongboon Ooi for making it possible.

Lovey Dovey Tuesday: Forever(s) make me cry....

I found this somewhere on the net years ago... Fell in love instantly with the picture, as well as the wordings. Maybe because I feel it so close to my heart.

My Happiest Moment

It is difficult to choose one happiest moment of all - since I am HAPPY most of the time~ :D

But they say, you never really appreciate what you have till it's gone. And when it's gone, then only you'll realize how happy you really were that time.

What Type of Smoker Are YOU?

You know, I personally don't hate smokers. But, I REALLLY hate cigarettes. I wish it was never invented in the first place. But since I cannot change that, I hope that people will have manners when it comes to smoking. You know, those who nonchalantly smoke in public endangering the life of ME! how dare them!! those are my WTB (What The Brat??) moments.

Tee Intellectual Property - Trademark, Copyrights & Patent Expert

Whoever think up such a lame title???

Must be one of my "rare" moments~

But the topic, although lame, is quite important to the people who are brimmed with creativity such as me. Muahahaha~~

Anyway, as a mass communication student majoring in Communication Management and Policy Studies, I could not (which I really wanted to) avoid from learning about intellectual property law. More often than not, these laws will complicate things for me at one time or another. It would be such a hassle to be confronted with lawsuits regarding to this, just because I don't know or don't care not to mention the money it would involve!! *shiver*

Little Red Bratty Hood and the Big Bad Wolf

Once upon time, there lived a little Brat who loves to wear red hood. People around there call her Red Bratty Hood, or Brat and sometimes just by her maiden name, Nana.

Wordless Wednesday - Can you find it?

How many times did you read it before you got it?

It just proves that we can't trust our eyes and mind 100%.

Lovey Dovey Tuesday: Should I Smile Coz U're My Friend or Should I Cry Coz That's All You Are?

A place where I once had been. A place where I would NEVER wish for anyone to be in. A place so dark I wish it didn't exist. But then again, unrequited love always is~

The Brat Nana Hood and her Merry-people

Okay, that title is so wrong on so many levels.

But it doesn't change the fact that Brat has now taken up yet another hobby - Archery.

Brat in full support for CSR!

I had always been in full support for Corporate Social Responsibilities programs. I believe, since these corporate people all gained something (eg: getting insanely rich) by using the community, one way or the other, they have to do their part and give back. Hey, spread around the riches u have a bit, okay!

Emotionally tired.

You know that moment when you just feel wrong?

When everything ticks you off.

When small setbacks makes you feel like crying.

When a rejection left you feeling totally dejected.

Open Sesamee~~~~ Brat is SO One Malaysia

This is a WaaaAAAAayyyyy overdue post. It was supposed to be up on the blog earlier, but I haven't gotten into editing the pictures until now. There's JUST TOO MUCH things to do! heheh

Alright so on the last 18th September 2011, a day after MY BIRTHDAY, I officially opened my doors, windows, gates and practically ripped my non-existent purse apart for a Raya open house. Seriously, I had NEVER spent THIS MUCH to invite friends and family to come EAT!

Lovey Dovey Tuesday: BF/GF, Did I lost a best friend?

"We all have that one guy best friend that we lose because he gets a girlfriend." - The Notebook of Love
Now, this is a dilemma that many people encountered. Although I quoted "guy friend gets gf", but really, I think it is also the same for the opposite sex. Only, I believe, this is mostly true for girls.

A girl, is generally (but not all) more sensitive, more attached to feelings than guys do. When a girl declared someone as their best friend, may it be a girl or a guy, they see them as the people that is most important to them, sometimes more than their family. Rarely (I'm not saying that it does not happen) a girl changes when they got a bf/husband. They'd still see you as their best friend, and they'd still allocate some time to spend with you, despite being busy with other things (including their partner), even though it might not be as much as it used to be.

Many a times I heard my guy friends complain about their GF being too friendly with a guy who is supposedly her best friend. They would argue things like

"Why does she have to go out/meet with him?"
"Dia asyik back up mamat tu je!"
"She listens to him too much!"
"If you have a bf, would you still be flirt-texting with another guy?"

My answer each and everytime is the same,

"That's actually quite normal"

I know, I know, it sound ridiculous and perhaps ludicrous to guys, but it's the truth. Especially if she had been friends with the guy long before she know you. I know you feel suspicious, jealous and perhaps angry, But

calm down,

Take a deep breathe,

and think. 

IF she's in love with her best friend, don't u think she would've ended up with him instead of you? "Maybe she didn't realize it?" IF she didn't realize it, after so much complaining and hassle coming from you, don't u think she would've realize it IF she loved him? IF she already realize it, then why is she still with you? OR, would you rather she's NOT with you, and with him instead?

Friendships are dynamic. It MAY and MAY NOT change. source
There's a saying, "guys and girls can never be just friends". I don't agree that it applies to all. It's amazing, - the power of mind is. If you set to think something as that, it will be, just that. If she thinks and focus on the guy as merely a friend, no matter how much she likes, adores, and love him, she would NEVER fall in love with him, and they will always be, FRIENDS. (so basically what I meant is, he has been friendzoned! <--- here I googled the word 4 you.) For her, there are no other option, except to think that. So don't you go and disturb that focus with your doubts and jealousy and made her realize, she has an option to NOT keep focusing as being friends.

And even if she IS or HAD BEEN  in love with him, just remember, SHE CHOOSE YOU! And if the fact that her being with you is NOT ENOUGH, then maybe, you're the one who's NOT in love. 
"So can women and men be friends? Of course they can. But there is a silent understanding that some friendships are meant to be nothing more, and as with all relationships, there are certain rules that need to be followed. " -

But for guys, a different scenario can be seen.

Once they got a gf, most all of their time are kept occupied by their gf or their male-buddies. Most of them do not keep in contact with their girl friends anymore - not as much as they used to. Some, might even go to the extreme by severing their contact with other girl-friends all together. Now you can see why these guys gets restless when their gf don't do the same with their guy-friends. This is actually the excuse my guy friends gave for them being jealous/restless.

And when it is being pointed out, some of the gf might answer, "I didn't ASK you to do so!" If she answer you like that, then PLEASE don't jump into conclusion, she's not saying she don't love you and that you are not enough. And she's not saying she DON'T appreciate that, she's just making a point that it's ok to have friends. She's saying, she knows that best friends are important, and since she value hers, she would understand if you'd value yours, and so she wont ask you to severe all connection completely.

"Some 83 percent of the people surveyed think that cross-gender friendships can and do exist, according to a 2001 poll of more than 1,500 members. And a 2006 study by Canada's Public Health Agency of nearly 10,000 Canadian children shows that they often start early, with 65 percent of boys and 60 percent of girls declaring three or more close opposite-sex friends by grade 10." - CNN

Truth is, from the general gf's point of view, when a guy do this, it is fantastic, and sweet, and reassuring. But seeing it from the friend's point of view, it SUCKS BIG TIME. 

Like I said, girls don't tend to severe connection with friends, especially best friends. So when their guy-best friend gets a girlfriend, they dread that it would be goodbye. And even if they don't show it, or complain about it, believe me, it hurts. Even when a girl-best friend gets a bf, a girl will feel lonely and sad, like their bestfriend had been stolen by the bf. So it's basically the same with guy-bestfriends, perhaps worst - because with guy-best friend, you lose them completely.

I dunno about other girls, but for me, I'd scold my bf if he does that. I'd rather become his best-friend's best-friend. That way, we could even spend time and hang-out together, and it won't be awkward. Like wise with my guy-best friends. I'll ask them to intro their gf to me so I can assure her I'm no competition, and that I can actually be off help to her in the future (which usually is the case), and perhaps join hand in hand with her to make his life a weee-bit more happily miserable. Of course, I'll intro my best friend to my bf as well, and force them to be buddies. Or at least, to make my bf see that my best friend is someone he can trust.

Even experts agrees! - Check out the TIPS here.
I would like to call all girls and guys to TRY and be friends with your partner's opposite sex best-friend. Jangan la sombong sangat. Some girls/guys just LOVE to make it difficult for their partner by being ABSOLUTE ass. I mean, would it hurt to actually be friendly a bit and TRY to get to know the other person first? I know, it's natural to feel a bit of hostility towards them, but do try your best to keep it in you. Hold off your judgement for that person until you actually get to know them, ok?

And for the best-friends, don't hog your friends to yourself! Be understanding. You would feel the same if you are in their shoes. You too don't just assume the other is not good for your friend and keep trying to convince them that it is true. Trust your friend's instinct a bit and go and get to know their partners. You might be surprise at what common grounds you can walk on - at least you already know that your best friend is one of it. And remember, even if you don't approve of the bf/gf, DO NOT try to poison your friend - especially if they're happy. You DON'T KNOW what is happening between them, and you have NO RIGHT to meddle in. Just be there as a friend that you are and support them, and when they cry, just be the shoulder to cry on, and the ear to listen, then make them smile again :)

So how to balance your friend and lover? Here's some tips from CNN:

Phew~ what a long post.. So, tell me, what's your take on this?

Don't Sweat It!!

When I'm sweaty, I get REALLY irritated. I could leash out on the next person who says hi to me just because I'm feeling uncomfortable. Yep, that's how sweat can effect me.

But that's not the worst thing about sweat. It's worst when it comes with body odour. Recent Survey by Rexona found that
  • 65% would often make jokes about their friends’ BO. Except they’re not really joking.
  • 60% would rather hold their breath than tell you.
  • 40% often breathe through their mouth. On dry land.
And yet six out of ten Malaysian do not use deodorant. Why? Because they believe they don't have body odour since they don't sweat that much. Of course, with an air-conditioned work-place, car and home, anyone would think so. BUT they're wrong! DEAD wrong. 

Thanks to Rexona and the Edelman group for inviting me to their event of experimental discovery - where we get to learn the 5 causes of sweat and experiment. Sounds weird? Actually, not at all~ I'll show you.

Oh before that, allow me to introduce to my dashing "date" for the day - my unbelievably chubby-turned-slim-handsome-primary-classmate, Robin Kok. 

Back in school he do not talk much (well, at least with me). But now, I will (most probably) be hearing long lectures from him. (This is a story I will reserve for next time :) ) hehe. I will be featuring him in a lot of the pics. Oh, and sorry for the mediocre quality pics. I forgot to bring my dslr. huhu~

I'm gonna share you 5 situation where you WILL definitely sweat.
#1. Light Movement.

We tried the kinetics game where we actually just used our hands to play bowling. We didn't move that much, but apparently, even so, we still sweat. Means, during working, when we move from one place to another, or just typing or fiddling with our fingers could cause us to sweat. 

Robin Playing Bowling~
We even have a little virtual table tennis fight (no pics) and being the awesome brat that I am, of course I WON. ahahah~

#2. Heat.

Not just sun heat- but also heat from electrical appliance, lamps and etc. 

We took the opportunity to took some polaroid pics!!

Aren't we adorable? lols~

#3. Stress

Yup, we had to confront with stress ALL THE TIME. Stress driving to the office and stuck in the jam, stress finishing our loads of work, stress from NOT having any work. And in all this situations, we sweat. And since I was so stressed out, I just had to try this out!

Yup, fake is what it is~ ahahaha~

#4. Humidity

There's no way to avoid this in our hot-and-humid country. So in other words, there's no way for us NOT to sweat!!!

For this one I had my hand massaged.

Looks familiar? The Vaseline product on the table. Nyahaha~ I even have my date to have a hand massage as well! Apparently, he was the first male to have the hand massage! ahahah~

Pretty Gal~~
Look at his oh-so-happy face being massaged by a pretty gal~ haha

Almost like a date right? (Robin, you so owe me one for this! haha)

#5. Emotions

Fluctuation of emotions will cause us to sweat. Angry, scared, happy, whatever. For this one we were given free tics to watch Dream House.

My take on the movie? Not bad~. It wasn't too much of horror, more like a mystery. But it does have some interesting twist in the story. Only thing is, after the twist, it's pretty much predictable. hoho~ But Daniel Craig is so damn good! He's the kind of guy I won't mind getting old with. Ripen with age I must say! haha. Naomi Watts was beautiful. And their two kids are simply adorable! Not a total lost of money to go watch!.

So, how to prevent body odour? What else? Get yourselves Rexona!! 

I got these for FREE!
Seriously, sometimes, by the end of a long day, my mom will complain that I need a bath (which I agree 100%). But I've tried the product and after a longgg day, my mom didn't say anything. I even ask her if I smell, and she said no. I guess the product works? haha

Anyway, we had a lovely time that day. They need to invite me to more events like this!! Ahaha~ So girls, don't sweat the sweat, wear Rexona!~

Bratty as ever,
