Quickie about the new Transformers movie!

So here are some of my thoughts after watching Transformers: Age of Extinctions:

1. Oh Michael Bay, you did it again!
2. Those scenes - panoramic view of a wide open space against the orange, sunset sky and killer soundtrack.. seen them in past Transformers movies, see it again here. I'm pleased to see those!
3. Mark Wahlberg was born for this role - he's just perfect in here!
4. Those Autobots! 
5. OMG, the cars!
6. Love, and I mean LOVE the slow-motion scenes during intense battle action! It's signature Transfomers too to capture the transforming action and fighting scenes in slow-mo! It's just soooo cool, I'm a complete sucker!
7. Oh, I wish the Dinobots had more scenes in the movie, because they are badass! 
8. Bumblebee is still so cute and endearing as ever.
9. Some parts in the middle are kinda draggy and the story isn't the best overall. 
10. But then again, I'm still thoroughly entertained by this movie! So much explosions, so much adrenaline, I expected nothing less!

Here is a picture of me being all fangirl in front of the 3D movie poster!

So my verdict? Well if you love Transformers for the same reason I do: for the action, you will definitely love this too! I'm not very familiar with the characters, so I can't really make any critics - you have to ask my boyfriend on that. And trust me, he has A LOT of comments about the loop holes in the movie, but if you ask me, I wasn't thinking of any loop holes because I was too busy being excited to see Optimus Prime save the day once more!

Where I want to be...

Clear, blue skies.
Soft romantic clouds.
A space full of people speaking in foreign language.
Colorful bricks.
Hair swept by the cool winds.
... That's where I want to be.

Living life!

It's been a whirlwind of activities and business these past few weeks! I'm really enjoying my work tho, although it can be overwhelming sometimes. I think the secret to cope with everything is just to keep a positive mindset, and instead of looking at it as obstacles, think of it as challenges and goal that you can achieve!

Anyway I'm so grateful for my new colleagues and also friends who keep me happy and motivated just by being there! It's important to keep a balance too, you work hard and you gotta have fun! 

I'm looking forward to having my elder sister back in Singapore! She has been away in Australia for the past 1.5 years and I'm so excited to have her back! She still is my best friend and closest confidante, it's truly a blessing to have a sister that is also your friend. At least you can't shake her off even when you have arguments! Right?

I think from now on I have to focus more on doing things that I enjoy too. I'm glad that I have made more time to meet old friends and reestablish connection with people that I have lost in touch with. I think working close to town has a lot to do with being able to do that. I promise that I won't take them for granted anymore. 

I think this post is so random, I don't really know what I'm getting at, but hey who cares right? It's great to just be able to write at my heart's desire. For those of you who don't know, I have another blog that I share with my sisters: I'm making a mental note to write more in there too, but yes you should check it out if you like reading about travel, food, photography, pretty clothes and basically just happy things!

On that note, I'll see you soon and hope that you're doing great too, wherever you are! Remember, happiness is a choice!
