Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Michael Douglas, Breckin Meyer, Lacey Chabert, Emma Stone, Anne Archer, Robert Forster, Amanda Walsh
Director: Mark Waters
Screenwriter: Scott Moore, John Lucas
Producer: Jon Shestack, Brad Epstein
Composer: Rolfe Kent
Studio: New Line Cinema
This is a ROMANTIC COMEDY with ‘A Christmas Carol’ spin , bearing this in mind you’ll be comfortably entertained. Also it was a treat to see Michael Douglas in action as he is always convincing in whatever role he takes on and this was was no exeception. There is also undeniably on-screen chemistry between McConaughey and Garner.
There are however, two things which sort of bugged me in this movie. Firstly in these day and age, how could so many women be smitten with such a character as portrayed by McConaughey? A little too far fetched don’t you agree?
Secondly apart from the shallow, rude and lewd portrayal of McConaughey’s character Connor, how could any woman believe such a character would be able to change after two decades of female degradation? Let alone a strong and bright Doctor? ( Garner’s character )
This movie in my opinion is worth watching at least once.

Heard about this place from a colleague and so decided to check it out with the kids. Boy did they enjoy themselves, and super cheap compared to Wild Wild Wet though of course the latter offers slightly more. Apparently a few of the other swimming complexes around the housing estates offer similar experiences just not the one in Woodlands! Bah!
Anyhow here is how I got there….
1) Take the MRT train to Choa Chu Kang Station.
2) Use Exit A to Lot 1 Shopping Centre (which basically means, just walk straight as you exit the staion gates)
3) Walk through the shopping centre, cut across the taxi-stand and take bus 307 directly in front from the bus stop at the shopping centre.
4) Get down on at the third bus stop ( outside Block 754)
5) Walk about 100 metres to the right as you exit the bus and diagonally across the road. You can’t miss it! ( Or if you are standing at the bus stop facing away from the seats then it is on your left)
6) To reach the Entrance you’ll need to cut across the indoor parking lot and may your way to the 2nd floor.
At the exit of the Train Station
See the destination across the road from the bus stop?
The Water Slide
The Wave Pool Just After this yellow enclosure thingy
The Smaller Children's Water Adventure
I didn’t bother taking a pic of the Olympic sized pool because that’s pretty standard, oh and forgot to take one of a mini-river ride pool for the kids.

If you’re not yet a fan, and unless you’re a drone to begin with then you might actually be Converted….Or should I be tacky and say TRANSFORMED!
However for the serious Drone Critic you’ll find that this movie is not exactly excitingly new in terms of ‘Special Effects’, the female lead is cast ever more bimbiotic, too much is better than less seems to be the approach of the Director and who cares about scripts when our pictures tells it all!
For me personally I totally enjoyed the whole movie because it was pure entertainment from start to finish! I could even hear the teenage boys seated behind me drooling and who knows what else they did when Megan all 35 feet of her appeared on screen in all her barely convered glory!
As for Shia, I think he did an excellent job in his character that I doubt if anyone can ever replace him. There were also quite a few hilarious scenes and dialogue between the rest of the characters and Autobots which made it all the more worthwhile.
My two favourite bots in this movie is the new improved Optimus Prime and the gorgeous Silver Corvette Sideswipe! What’s yours?
Oh Megan baby!
Isabel Lucas Woo hoo!

Now this is what I call Jungle Music….While waiting for the kids to finish playing at the water park, I decided to play some music and keep out of the sun. This is what I did… *grins* ( Oh this was at the zoo)
Here’s a closer look at my mp3 player and speakers on the Elephant leaf..
Next is two shots of the kids at some kiddie ride at Sembawang shopping centre….
A Dog and A Panda..
A New Hospital Opening In Yishun For Folks in the North!
Construction in Progress...
Oh and this two food items which can be found at the Food Court at Northpoint shopping Centre is really value for money and marvellicious! I believe I paid only $10.50 for the lot!
Fish & Calamari With Potatoes & Salad
My Egg Mayo Salad Only $4.50
This next item is hilarious because it gave me a real shock when I absent-mindedly forgot that I had placed it just outside of my study just a few minutes prior to searching for something in the room. Then when I was done, I turned and Whoa Liao Eh! Shell shocked! 😆
My Sparring Partner!
And finally early this morning, Seth set off for Church Camp all by himself for two days, one night!
Me and my backpack...
Meet The Fourth Ninja Turtle Botticelli!

(An Oldie but Goodie)
A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she’d like to have for her Birthday.
‘I’d like to be six again’, she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park.. What a day!
He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was.
Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.
He then took her to a McDonald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M’s. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, ‘Well Dear, what was it like being six again?’
Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. ‘I meant my dress size, you retard!!!
The moral of the story:
Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong!
