hansel and gretel


So much has happened this week that we haven’t been able to blog much. Nevertheless, here is just an update as to what we have been up to!
In the earlier part of this week, we caught the movie, Hansel & Gretel 3D [courtesy of Club UIP] and it was indeed an awesome movie. Do check out our review about the movie at the following link: https://awinsomelife.org/2013/01/22/hansel-gretel-witch-hunters-3d-2013-movie-review/

On a separate note, our current giveaway of 1 Set of 5 Sticky Ties to 5 Lucky Winners will be ending today and after which, we will be announcing the winners shortly.

Anyways, Chinese New Year is just 14 days away and Valentine’s Day is 4 days after Chinese New Year! What a busy month of February it is going to be indeed! Have all of you bought your “New Year” clothing and thought about what to get for your other half on Valentine’s Day yet?

When we were looking at the “New Year” Goodies that were being sold at the various Bakeries and Stores, we were rather appalled that the prices were so unreasonably high! When we went across the Causeway to Johor Bahru, the “New Year” Goodies were priced somewhat similar to Singapore’s pricing but if you take the currency exchange rate into consideration, you are literally getting them at half the price. So, if you’re looking for a less expensive alternative to Singapore’s “New Year” Goodies, why not head over to Johor Bahru and get them because they are less expensive. If you’re heading over to Johor Bahru, we will strongly recommend you to get the “New Year” Goodies from Lavender. They have a wide range of “New Year” Goodies and their “New Year” Goodies are really awesome. Just look out for their booth at the Main Atrium of City Square.

As for Valentine’s Day, there’s a lot of things you can do with your other half. Well, some activities for Valentine’s Day could be spending time together by staying at home and cooking/baking together, going out to shop together, catching a movie together, having a romantic dinner together, and taking a stroll along East Coast Park or Gardens By The Bay. You don’t really need to spend a lot in order to achieve the objectives of spending a meaningful time together.

On a separate note, the Punggol East By-Election that took place yesterday ended victoriously for the Worker’s Party [WP] and we wish Lee Li Lian all the best in her role as an elected MP. As for the People’s Action Party, the tide is changing for them and there is definitely much work to be done on the ground if they want to win the hearts of the people. Seriously, there needs to be a review in the prices for Housing, COE, Healthcare, Transportation and Education. If these essential infrastructures are already cracking, surly there ought to be repair works and if these cracks are still not rectified, then I suppose we will most likely be able to predict the results of the next General Election [GE]. If the current infrastructure can’t even support Singapore’s current population of 5 million, wouldn’t a population of 7 million people make it worse?

Oh wells, we shall talk more about these issues in our upcoming blog entries.

Stay tuned to more updates from us!

God bless!

We were very blessed when we received news from the folks at United International Pictures that we won tickets to the preview screening of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters at Shaw Lido. Alright, we caught the 3D version of the movie and though it may cost a little more, we honestly would recommend you to watch it in 3D because the graphics and effects are really solid. It is in fact one of the best 3D movies we have ever caught.

Here’s the Movie Plot [as extracted from Shaw’s Website]:
After getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell bent on retribution. Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches…their past.

Our Review of the Movie:
I believe everyone of us are familiar with the story of Hansel & Gretel. For those who don’t, it is the classic story of how a young brother [Hansel] and his sister [Gretel] threatened by a cannibalistic witch living deep in the forest in a house constructed of cake and confectionery, save their own lives by outwitting her. Well, the movie has a rather similar plot as the classic story but with a modern twist added to it!

The movie is rated NC-16 and it should stay that way because of the gore and violence that may be way too much to handle for those under 16s. There’s also a brief nude scene but other than that, its just all bloody and messy. The genre of the movie falls between adventure and horror but I would say its more to the adventure part than horror. In fact, for someone like me whom don’t fancy horror movies, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters isn’t what I would consider a horror movie. So, it is a rather safe movie for all those who have a weak heart.

Anyhows, we shan’t spoil the surprise of the movie for you and well, don’t bother staying till the end of the credits because there isn’t any teaser or what not. However, if you do catch the 3D version of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, you would be in for a treat because a 4-minutes 3D sneak peek of G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be screened. And yes, it is only for the 3D sessions of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

From 1/22/13

So, if you are still scratching your head over what movie to catch this weekend, I will highly recommend you to watch Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D!
