Movies i watched lately....

I watched like 1 movie per week.. lol...

The last 2 movies i watched are Vampires sucks and Love cuts

1. Vampires Suck

I have no intension to watch this show initially. i expect it to be some comedy that have not much content.
I knew a group of 14yrs old who are very excited about the show and was really disappointed that its NC16.
I was very much affected by their disappointment and decided to check the show out.

I really shouldn't have doubt my judgment... LOL.. Crude dialogs and incomprehensible jokes.
Really not my cup of tea.

2. Love cuts

Its a local production, i quite like it. Though the story line is not very strong. There is a message to take home. Quite touching... The 2 main casts in the show are good, i remember watching Kenny Ho movies when i was young. He still look so good, i'm sure he's quite old now.. LOL...

Korea trip Summary

I was there about 7days..

2 days at Jeju-island

Jeju Island is a volcanic island, dominated by Halla-san (Halla Mountain). The island was created entirely from volcanic eruption. Its a popular honeymoon place for the south Korean, as newly web couples like to go and touch the nose of Dol hareubangs. Dol hareubangs are considered to be gods offering both protection and fertility. The tour guide told us that out of 10 couples, 8 will have son after touching the statue. LOL.. She also got a son after she touch the statue..

Dol hareubangs, can be found all over the island.. took a pic of them at the foot of a mountain :). 

Seaside view from the island

We climb the Seongsan (Sunrise Peak), when we are there, its pack with people, can't event take a proper pic.. LOL..
The view was good when we are on top of the peak.

We visited the bear museum as well, its quite a small place but quite nice. They even have my fav band.. Beatles!!! LOL...

The tour guide told us that we are plucking orange when we 1st reached korea but when we reached the plantation, we are informed that the oranges are not wripe yet so can't plug ( so disappointed) and as they r all green the plantation put up fake one for us to take pic..
LOL.. The guide even ofer to  teach us how to take pic and make the fake one look real. so lame lei.. i purposely took one that show both... LOL...

We also visited the car museum, many antique cars.. i'm not into car.. LOL. we are not suppose to cross beyond the barrier but many of aunties in the tour group when over and took pic.. LOL..
 The tour told us that we are visiting a tea plantation but all they did is bring us to a tea field in the middle of the road to take a pic. I was hopping that they will bring us into the tea museum, opp the field, for a visit. osulloc tea is good and i didn't even get to buy any back.

BTW,  i'm drinking osulloc tea now, my sis bought them when she was in Korea.

2 days at Yeoju

The 2 days in Jeju is pack with activities but the next 2 days is more relaxing, we are allow to sleep in late. We stay in 2 different resorts for the 2 days, both resorts are situitated in the country side with beautiful scenery. As they are in the country side, there are nothing to explore in the eveing and we all end up watching TV indoor.

We also visited less palces these two days. We spend half a day in a theme park. The theme park is much bigger than the Hong Kong disney land. They even have a mini zoo.

I think they are foxes.. lol.. quite sure not rabbits...

Baby tigers... Very cute right.. LOL...

I think the funnest things that happen in the trip is the so call spa activity... LOL..
we were told that we will be going for a 2hr spa and it turn out that they brought us to Korea swimming pool...

Saw these 2 birds at the entrance of the swimming pool.. LOL.. remind me of the pack at home.. LOL...

2 days in Seoul

I took the pic when i was waiting for our tour guide to check us into our hotel in Seoul. The hotels has a few identical lambs in the lobby, really pretty.. Its suppose to be a 6 stars hotel, errr.. i think the lobby is 6 stars but the toilet is at most 4 star..

 BTW, in general the hotels in Korea are below my expectation


 Took this when we were visiting the king palace.. lol...


 Busy street, the guide only give us 1hr to shop.. not ENOUGH LA....

 I only managed to buy lip balms n few pcs of mask from a shop...

Osulloc (korea)

One of the things i managed to grab from korea is Osulloc: Water + Happy sweet and Water + Refresh mint.
They are suspose to be dieting supplement make up of catechin (found in green tea) which serves as anti-oxidants to purity and lighten up our body. I never know that green tea contain compound that will help to slim us down.. LOL..

There are a total of 3 fav (Happy sweet, Refresh mint and Mixed Cerial), When i was at Korea, i only bought the 2 above, as i don't know what fav is the 3rd one and the sale gal only speak very little english so i decide not to risk in case its some strange fav that i don't like.

However when i bought the products, it come with a gift set with 2 water bottles and 3 samples ( all 3 fav). The yellow one actually taste abit like diluted tea, not too bad. In fact the mint one taste the worse, its quite bitter. The pink one is sweet but not really nice.. LOL.. I guess none of the 3 taste good. At least to me... LOL..

I google about gren tea and weight lost this is what i found:
One of the articles:

Green Tea for Weight Loss

....many popular diet pills and you’ll see “green tea” or “green tea extract” listed as one of the ingredients.

Green Tea Burns Fat

...... It contains high amounts of polyphenols which activate the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving excess triglyceride. In the long run, this means that green tea effectively aids in burning fat.

Green Tea Stimulates the Metabolism & Accelerates Weight Loss

Green tea contains powerful antioxidants called catechin polyphenols that are responsible for many of the health benefits of green tea. One of them in particular, epigallocatechin gallate (or EGCG for short), has been found to stimulate the metabolism and accelerate weight loss.
EGCG, along with the caffeine in green tea, stimulates the central nervous system and causes fat to be released into the blood stream for the body to use as fuel. This process of fat being used for energy is called “thermogenesis”. It provides extra energy, sheds excess water, and also helps to burn body fat.
Although caffeine alone can stimulate the metabolism this way, it’s important to note that researchers found that the combined ingredients of green tea were much more effective at this process than just caffeine by itself.
