Something About Halloween

Don't know what's gotten into me lately...

I WANNA DO SOMETHING FOR HALLOWEEN!! xD Hardly anyone celebrates Halloween here though.. (ok i get it. we don't have autumn here. but so.... what?) Seriously, i've thought bout mayb hosting a lil halloween dinner or somethg around last week... ahahahhaha... and a sudden urge to get a costume n go trick-or-treating.. lol ~ but don't think it's happening.. but still...... I wanna do something on that day. something significant?


and.. speaking of halloween... these pics are actually quite halloween-ish. lol ~ (actually i think i got inspired to do something for halloween because of... this....)

This is Alice... Shrunken version. Mia Wasikowska.. Hmm.. long name. Quite pretty though. =)

The Mad Hatter!!!!! YES YES YES!!! johnny depp guys!!! HE'S THE RIGHT PERSON TO GET THE ROLE!!!! =DDD

The Red Queen! O gosh wow wow wow ~ Look at her makeup and the HEAD!!! Helena Bonham Carter rocks the look ~ =D

And look who's the White Queen? One of my favourite actresses, Anne Hathaway (from Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada)!! a bit eerie.. But beautiful ~ as always. hahahs.

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.. Oooh.. The size of them! ahahhaha.. By Matt Lucas.

I remember reading this in my books when i was like 5 or something ~ When Alice went to the Rose Garden to ask directions or something.. Look at the expressions on the faces here!! Awesome.. and then the final one ~

This is the synopsis i found on the web:
Tim Burton (director of Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice) attempts to work his gothic magic over one of the best loved stories of all time... Lewis Carroll's 'Alice In Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There', which first told the story of a young girl, who after following a rabbit down a hole, is transported to a strange world. Whilst the disney version of the tale relied on sweetness and light to delight the audience, Burton fans can be sure to look out for the same cartoon traits as earlier masterpiece 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast).

Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember. Among those who welcome her back is the Mad Hatter, a part tailor-made for Johnny Depp as he collaborates with Burton for the seventh time. "This character is off his rocker," Zanuck says. Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska, 19, best known for HBO's In Treatment, has the coveted title role. "There is something real, honest and sincere about her," Zanuck says. "She's not a typical Hollywood starlet." There is the usual Burton-esque ghoulishness (Helena Bonham Carter's Red Queen, whose favorite retort is "Off with their heads," has a moat filled with bobbing noggins), but Zanuck assures most kids can handle it. "The book itself is pretty dark," he notes. "This is for little people and people who read it when they were little 50 years ago."

And the trailer. OMG!!! even the sound effects are attractive to me. I love, love, love Alice in Wonderland and this version looks great to me. The art!!! The characters!!! Although they are computer generated, but whatever. It's still so awesome, so cool ~

hahahah.. favourite quote ther: "Alice.. you're terribly late you know.. naughty!" just gotta love johnny depp. And the tagline: YOU'VE GOT A VERY IMPORTANT DATE. yes yes yes sure i do. anyone wanna go watch with me nex year march somethg? hahahah..

Just beautiful. The colours are so vividly beautiful, and Tim Burton gets it right just like the illustrations in the book. It's not just a children's fairytale anymore, and has an edge to it. I can't wait to watch this movie.. though it's NEXT YEAR!!! i love you, tim burton. You're a genius!

Of Blogging at Work... =X

1. I have started working today. at my dad's place. Out of sheer boredom n broke-ness. lmao ~

2. I actually dreaded this day. I thought it might be boring, cuz I have to be a little good girl and do all those office stuff and strictly NO ONLINE unless im in for lunch hour.

3. I didn't even want to wake up today!! (cuz i slept at round 3 am laz nite)

4. I ate breakfast (2 pieces of bread), did my hair, prep my face wiv primer (just temporarily cuz my moisturiser's used up n im dry in the pocket) and concealer (i slept at round 3 am REMEMBER??), felt a little scared about how it would turn out this time.. all in the car.

5. I realised I've been thinking too negatively. There are cheerful new faces in the office, and my ever bubbly colleague Prema is a life saver. She told me this (summarized by me): "You can on9 whenever u want, just not in front of ur dad or ur aunts.."

6. I am therefore blogging at work now, because apparently i don't have much work at hand.

7. I logged onto Facebook and the line was damn slow. Yes they have finally installed Internet connection into employees' computers. WOOTS! But i'll hav to make use of it. Logged onto Blogger and entered other fashion-y sites to get my daily dose of update. (it's become quite a habit now. i just love pretty things)

8. I wonder if I can download MSN Messenger here. Hmm... Some ppl said hi to me in Facebook Chat but because it was too slow, i only managed to reply to a few. =X

9. I feel so at home here. Just minus the tv and snacks and speaker. Otherwise it's great. Hahah.

10. Things are starting to look cheerful for me.
