Nice ambience.

Getting ready for yoga session.

I attended the Jivamukti yoga class at Pure Yoga Ngee Ann City outlet. We used peppermint aromatherapy before the start of the yoga session. This is the underdog pose.

Jivamukti yoga is different from the usual yoga that I did for the previous yoga sessions I did. What I did for normal yoga – breathing and the poses (tree, warrior 1 & 2, underdog).

Jivamukti is a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice, combining a vigorous hatha yoga, vinyasa-based physical style with adherence to five central tenets: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (nonviolence, non-harming), nāda (music), and dhyana(meditation).

Doing mediation towards the end of the session. Enjoyed the session!

Foster The People – Are You What You Want to Be?

Foster the people is famous for their song “Pumped up Kicks”. I got addicted to this song after watching Singapore Mediacorp’s advertisement. It is a more of an Indie Pop with an artistic feel for this song.

Here’s the Mediacorp’s advertisement:

Here’s the full version of this song “Are you What you want to be?”

Hope you enjoy this song!

Movie – Stand By Me: Doraemon 哆啦A夢 ドラえもん & Doraemon events ending soon

Doraemon

哆啦A夢 ドラえもん Doraemon craze has come over to Singapore for the past few weeks with the Bugis and JCube 哆啦A夢  ドラえもん Doraemon Pop up store, 哆啦A夢  ドラえもん Doraemon Expo in City Square Johor Bahru, 哆啦A夢 ドラえもん Doraemon Christmas Tree at One Raffle Place and Stand By Me: Doraemon 哆啦A夢 ドラえもん  movie.

Doraemon Christmas Tree at One Raffles Place

There will be 2 different language version of this movie to be shown in Singapore movie cinemas – Mainly in Japanese and a few in Mandarin Chinese. 

It is about Sewashi (Nobita’s great grandson) sending Doraemon 哆啦A夢 ドラえもん to 22nd century to aid Nobi Nobita 野比 のび太 aka Da Xiong 大雄 to change his destiny and the fate. You will be seeing other characters such as Shizuka aka Jing Xiang 靜香, Suneo aka 小夫 Xiao Fu, Gian aka 剛田武/nickname 胖虎. It is a very touching movie as we can see how close Doraemon 哆啦A夢 ドラえもん and Nobita 大雄 after Doraemon 哆啦A夢 ドラえもん came into 大雄 Nobita’s life. 

Here is the trailer of the movie.

With English Subtitles.

Cannot wait to see this movie in cinemas soon after watching the trailers.

Paddington – The movie

My favorite Peruvian bear is finally on the screen! So cute. I love its positive attitude as it always smiles.

Paddington Bear

I used to own quite a number of Paddington bear t-shirts as the t-shirts were more easily available in the mid 2000s and nowadays it is not easy to find Paddington bear products in the shops. I even designed a clock based on Paddington bear then.

Paddington Bear with his suitcase

This bear travelled from Peru to London on its own after its home was being destroyed by earthquake and its guardian – Aunt Lucy, had to go to home for the retirement bears. Paddington station – was the place where it met Mr Brown and his family, thus they named it as Paddington.

Aunt Lucy

Paddington as it faces its own adventures while getting used to its new life in London while being chased by Milicent (Nicole Kidman) to be part of her collection for display.

Do have a good laugh while watching this polite bear getting into troubles unwittingly and adapting the new environment. I will give this movie 4 out of 5 stars.

Now, please take care of this bear and enjoy the show. See you next time.

Big Hero 6 movie review

This animation looks better than the comic version of Big Hero 6. I love this balloon version of Baymax. White, rubber balloon.

Although he is a bit clumsy (with the size), however, he can be lovable in his own ways. It also shows the transmation of Baymax from a simple robot with just 1 main function to a hero to save the day as being a part of big hero 6.

Do catch this movie on cinemas and laugh it out loud especially on Baymax portion. I will give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars . Great movie!
