Halloween Day yesterday.. and I've been celebrating in my own way.:)
I've put out Pirate banners around the house and watched Addams Family and Horror movies and of course Nightmare before Christmas. I could watch that over and over again. :)

My favorite Halloween movies are:

Nightmare Before Christmas


I loveeee this movie. I've seen it too many times, my bf kinda perdict it. :)
I love the music, I love the animations, and everything in between.

Beetlejuice

Brilliant character. Eccentric but brilliant. Not Charming, not adorable but freakish. Good movie that I love to watch over and over!

Addams Family (93 & 94 )


I hate the 1998 version - Addams Family Reunion, its not the same. Perhaps there's no charm like the older version of the movie with Angelina Houston and Christina Ricci- i guess i'm a bit bias. After the actor played Gomez, died, they changed the whole actors and actress. I think the person who played Gomez before really have a charm. :)

Trick 'r Treat


I just watch this a few minutes ago. It's good. I love the plot. its inter-related. One character related to another and it have a twist on its own. Loving it! I love this kind of movie! its my kind of movie. I think life is like that.


Death become her



My all time favorite movie. It may not look like typical Halloween but you know, if you look another angle, it is kinda gruesome and show the dark side of beauty and to be able to "touch up" like in the movie is like having a mask. Of course Helen Sharp hole on her tummy is an idea for Halloween! Who would forget that?!


Corpse Bride


How can I forget! I love Tim Burton movies! They are all Halloween concept movies. :) Corpse bride is from Russian- Jewish folktale. I wonder I wonder if there's a truth in those wonder that perhaps a groom married the dead?! I give it 10/10 if you dont like too much music, I'll give it 6/10 then :)



Thats my take on Halloween movies. I do like Halloween, the costume, the make up, creative pumpkin head Jack O' Lantern, even there's a food for halloween purpose! :) Definitely I would love to make my own Halloween party! :) Next Year then..Next year.... :)

Benefits of walking.

I went for a walk yesterday with Anna and Katja. It was one hour fun! Apparently, I think we went all around Tapiola.
I do love walking. Many reason of why walking is good. I got this list from http://www.aarp.org/health/fitness/walking/a2004-06-17-walking-numerousbenefits.html, check it out if you want more explaination.

  • Managing your weight.
  • Controlling your blood pressure. .
    Decreasing your risk of heart attack.
  • Boosting "good" cholesterol
  • Lowering your risk of stroke
  • Reducing your risk of breast cancer and type 2 diabetes.
  • Avoiding your need for gallstone surgery.
  • Protecting against hip fracture.
  • Prevent depression, colon cancer, constipation, osteoporosis, and impotence
    Lengthen lifespan
    Lower stress levels
    Relieve arthritis and back pain
    Strengthen muscles, bones, and joints
    Improve sleep
    Elevate overall mood and sense of well-being.

Personally, I prefer walking than running. I tend to short of breath too easily and it doesn't make me comfortable when I feel I need to think how to breath properly.

It is not so bad to walk alone though I won't mind having a company to walk along. We don't need to talk much. I begin to understand about silence is gold in certain time. I used to feel uncomfortable not to talk whenever I'm with someone.

I walked much back home and the reason is I don't have a car nor a bike. I have a bike now! I used to keep bugging my dad to buy me a bike since I was 13. After 14 years, I got one! I got a bike from my boyfriend who I didn't expect to buy it! I love it.

I still remember my "walking days" in KL. Going through LRT, stuffed KTM and walk 15 minutes from KLCC to Pavilion. Matter of fact, I feel thats all I've been doing. Walking to work, standing up in the train, walking to shopping mall and sit to eat. I feel kinda bored. Though walking is the best!

So Keep Walking!
