ZenkX Bread?

*Hey! It’s a bunch of doll-shaped bread with my name on it! Harharhar!*

One time during my monthly splurge to the local mall with my sister (and contemplating getting Medicare part D plans for myself… since I’m getting WAAAAYYY to sick lately ~_~), my sister and I came across this cute bunch of bread that had… well, my nickname on it. XD

*yeah, my nickname is JJ, and my sister calls me Baby… so yeah JJ+Baby= Me XD*

Anyway, of course I took a picture of it while my sister giggled. It kind of made laugh too, since… well, the bread resembled me. Especially when it comes to the body and arms. Harharhar. Yep, I am all rounded and plump as my pastry counter-part. XD

That reminds me, since it’s only 47 pesos, maybe I should try and get me one of those… hahaha. That’s be so funny… me taking a bite of my counter-parts head. Talk about biting your own head off. XD

Alice in Wonderland the Movie is WONDERFUL!!!

From Blog Pictures

*Yes, that is me drooling over this gigantic poster of Johnny Depp XD*

Yep, due to the demands of my sister, Lelai, we decided to watch “Alice in Wonderland” in SM Marikina, starring Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter and Anne Hathaway. And I regret the fact that I watched it so late despite of it’s continued commercials and promotions (though I wish there was like an Alice in Wonderland promotional hand sanitizers that would look like one of those Drink Me bottles in the movie… that would’ve been awesome).

It’s the first ever 3 Dimentional (or 3-D) movie I’ve ever watched, and I’m glad that it was. Like some men say, “You never forget the first time”. Hahaha! The movie marks the 7th time Director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have worked together since Edward Scissorhands, and it shows during the movie how well they work together. Depp (as always) fit right into the character, The Mad Hatter. And as usual, yours truly swooned at the sheer gorgeousness of Mr. Depp (I’ve had the biggest crush on him since I first saw Edward Scissorhands XD).

Helena Bonham-Carter’s performance was very good, as expected, and I saw a bit of resemblance of her acting in a previous movie of hers, Merlin. In fact, I would think that she patterned her speech from her character there, named Morgan le Fay. Plus next to Mr. Depp, she had some of the funniest lines in the movie. “SHE KILLED MY JABBER-BABY-WOCKY!” Classic. XD

As for the other characters, they did an excellent job. Kudos to Mia Wasikowska, who played a great Alice, and Anne Hathaway who portrayed the White Queen. I never thought that a silly (albeit graceful) White Queen would be possible, but she did it rather well.

OH! And don’t get me started on Allan Rickman. He voiced one of the stranger characters in the movie, Absolem, also known as the Caterpillar. Mr. Rickman wasn’t physically present in the movie (although his face was supposed to be imposed on the features of Absolem, but this was changed by Tim Burton) but he and fellow actor Christopher Lee (who voiced the Jabberwocky) nearly stole the scene by doing what they did best, acting through their voices. Mr. Lee actually had only two lines, but they were two very good lines that shows the power of the Jabberwocky. As for Mr. Rickman, I swear there is something strangely seductive about his voice… it almost made it seem like his character in the Harry Potter franchise (Severus Snape) is one sexy wizard, even he’s a slimy, oily character. XD

But of course, we can’t talk about the movie without talking of the 3D effects, and (pardon the language) it was SO frickin’ awesome! I’ve heard that James Cameron (director of Titanic and Avatar) criticized Tim Burton by filming the movie in 2D before converting it to 3D digitally, but it worked out rather well. Everything popped up with the help of the 3D glasses, and it emphasized the objects in the screen beautifully. In fact, it was so realistic that my mom (who watched it with us) felt like ducking whenever something charged towards the screen, and my sister and I felt like reaching out our hands to touch the flowers… or Johnny Depp’s yummy, made-up face. XD

All in all, it’s a great family movie, and it’s pretty good for the kids too, since there are moral lessons that could be learned from it. As for me, I’m going to go search for more Johnny Depp pictures. I swear, even if I drooled every single drop of spit in my mouth, Mr. Depp would be so worth it. XD

Mall Trippin’ feat. Lelai Part 3: Those Are BIG Teddy Bears

After my sister drooled all over Jacob Black’s six pack abs, and filling our stomach with Wham! Burgers, we saw a cute exhibit at the ground floor of SM Marikina called White Christmas exhibit, that features animatronic white animals. And of course, being the girls that we are (>_<) we squealed at the overflow of animal cuteness. Here's a bunch of pictures I took with my sister as the model and size comparison (she's 4'11 by the way, so you can just imagine the size of that Panda bear).

But after much sqealing, I’ve come to realize something. As much as the whole exhibit is for decorational purposes, it seemed like its a bit… well, misleading. There were kids during the exhibit, and they’re touching these animatronic bears and tigers. What if, heaven forbid, these kids were to interact with an actual tiger or bear? They’re going to think that this fluffy animal was just like the one they petted in the exhibit, and that it’s okay to touch them because it won’t harm them.

I don’t know, I guess it’s just me being weird… but then again, I’m always weird. XD

Tune in again next time when we explore the Cosplay Convention at SM Marikina this December 19-20, 2009! If I see a Sephiroth cosplayer (assuming he has the looks to match XD), I’M GONNA GLOMP HIM! XD

Mall Trippin’ feat. Lelai Part 2: Wham! Burgers Pack a Punch

I’m talking about “Wham!”, a small burger shop located at the 3rd floor of SM Marikina. It’s just a teeny, tiny stall in the corner of the mall, but looks can be quite deceiving.

This tiny shop offers some of the biggest burgers ever served to Filipino food lovers. Our bill reached around 350 pesos (for 2 people), but boy, it was worth every frickin’ cent.

This is pretty much our order… 2 cheeseburgers, a side of bacon (huh?), one of those crisscross fries and iced tea (my stomach gets upset when I drink soda ~_~).

One thing I love about the Wham! burgers is that they’re flame-grilled. Meaning some of the flavor gets retained in the meat of the patty, unlike frying. Unfortunately, being a chubby person that I am, the side of bacon is just, well, over-kill. It’s already a burger… why do you need to have a side of bacon as well? Oh well… I guess some people just want to add an additional flair to their food, kinda like my sister. XD

I just wish that there would be more stalls of Wham! in other malls… so I can give myself a little reward once in while… XD
