TV series on Starworld and foodrants.

Many tv series are highly over-rated. Or now i think , no they are not….Star World is being over-acclaimed to draw viewers to see their channel more. For instance :

– American idols 11 rated as the most GORGEOUS event of all??? Like seriously? Stop saying that, Star World! The word itself tak sesuai, what more of its content. Cant you think of another appropriate word?

– New Girl, starring the cutesy Zooey Deschanel as the highest rated tv show of the DECADE?? No wayyy man, i dont think so! Ok if debut, it might be..Just because of Deschanel. The series is sloppy, bad casting, unfunny and all Jess think about is getting laid. I can rant a lot of this tv series.

Little jess? seriously...so-not healthy thing. btw salahkan SW because its the promotional clip.

– Glee. Ok i dont remember SW note anything about it but…i think Glee could be misleading series. I mean, ok say im an orthodox, close minded but Glee is very dangerous for teens. Im so glad im not a teen while Glee aired. And sometimes me and my friends think Glee has hidden agenda to raise the voice of ‘freedom of speech’ people especially LBGT section. Yes im against LBGT, its a personal life choices but you dont need to drag/move people or motivate people to become one. I like Glee in a way it has good taste of music, Broadway thingy, ups and down of a relationship but lately its more like promoting gay lifestyle. Teens who are confused of their identity, become uplift by Glee so-called wisdom and think they should follow their body needs whilst for me..all they need is to be guided and show the right path.  As what Sue Sylvester has said in the early episode of Glee

“You see, that’s the problem with your generation- you’re obsessed with labels! So you like showtunes? It doesn’t mean you’re gay. It means you’re AWFUL!” …Ok scratch that last capital ones.. I like showtunes, that doesnt potray that im awful. haha. No, really.

Blaine, i love u in real life, wheres in Glee my brain keep on finding ways to hate u, especially ur hair...urgh.

– I like this new tv series, Revenge. It has twisted plot, good casting (hunky dude), great scene-hamptons (ada sikit flair of Gossip Girls, plus Eric Van de Woodsen pun ada), amazing costume, soundtrack best. *double infinity*

Revenge cast. Look at their wardrobe.....

– “Accidentally on purpose” is underrated. This show is very funny but was cancelled somehow after its first season.

The cast of Accidentally on Purpose. Davis tu selalu pakai yellow jacket. he's the funniest.

– I always love “The Amazing Race”. I see all the beautiful places in there.. Semalam ada tunjuk Azerbaijan. I dunnolah i always fall for EurAsia countries- (east meet west). They’re rich in cultures and historical building and stories. *i love forts and rustic architecture*.But that episode is hella funny sebab ada task kena cleans up a guy from a crude oil spa. They use crude oil as a healing therapy . Read here

City of Baku, capital of Azerbaijan.

Rant on foodstuff

If i pay premium price, i expect a premium goods in return. I didnt have that mutual satisfaction at Secret Recipe. I thought SR is being overhyped. Everytime i stepped inside SR, i try different kind of cakes in a hope that it’ll be that moment when i found that satisfying premium cake..No i dont have that moment, yet. Its mere spongy cake with creme layer.. and the taste is not kickin. I may have tastebud problems but…come on..at least ONE will satisfy my needs. I have tried the overhype chocolate indulgence, pecan butterscoth, choc fudge, white choc macadamia, tiramisu, their cheesecakes, durian range, mango tango..

Im a kind of person who would want to help local brands but it needs to be good. And it has to be im satisfied of what im paying for. And i bumped into this local cake stores at my neighborhood, it was called Kitchen Studio they had this little booth at one of FAMA/MIDA events yesterday. I bought the RV cakes and it taste so good. I only pay myr20 for a whole cake (in an oval shape plastic container, i wasnt sure of the cake weight). I came to a conclusion yang homemade cake lebih best dari commercial cake store. Sebab home-made style, (its my verdict la), they bake those cakes as if thier ownself yang nak makan whereas commercial ni mmg pure business, profit-oriented.

Googled image of RV cake.. Its officially my favourite cake.

*This is all my personal opinion. It does not indicate the real thing or experiences other people might had. That’s what we call preferences.

Rant-mode.

fattabiouni

Fattabiouni is in Arabic means FOLLOW ME. Its an effort and guidance in forms of video cast to spread and worship the Sunnah of Rasulullah .صلى الله عليه وسلم

Unintentionally i watched this during middle Ramadhan. Usually from work i went straight to masjeed for iftar but comes middle Ramadhan i wanted to go home and freshen up first because i noticed im kinda tak selesa during tarawikh. Ye lah..tak mandi kot.hehe. #teruk. Where comes the khusyu’.

So after siap-siap got few more minutes before iftar, i switched on the telly to tengok some programme. I tune to 114 Alhijrah sebab nak avoid benda lagha during ramadhan..hehe. So this programme is ‘Suara Hati & Azan Maghrib’. Sort of soul feeder before the adzan. Its soo good. Its fun to look at. Its enliven the sunnah and proves that sunnah never wears out of era. Totally practical. And how shameful of us yang tak ikut sunnah. Padahal all the simple things we do in daily life. Ok sekarang niatlah follow sunnah, you get rewarded as quoted in this verse in Surah Al-Imraan Ayah 31

Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”

Plus music background sgtlah membantu.. Macam lagu Lau Kanna Bainana. Meruntun jiwa.

Some of the sunnah sempat tengok di Tv Alhijrah

1. Starts doing something with Bismillah

2. Ablution & mandi Junub

3. Masjid-Adab2 ke masjid serta doa

4. Treat children with love

5. Jumuah-the adab

6. Smile

7. Starts doing a thing with right side

8. Musafir-the guide

9. Sports and be active as part of sunnah

10. Pasar/ Souq. -The guide.

If i have extra time inshaAllah gonna do some important points of each subject. Because tak ada video yang subtitle Malay or English lagi on the net. Hopefully Tv Alhijrah boleh load balik past episodes. Presenter of this programme Mohammed Alsaggaf got some attractive value of tone and personality and senyumm je. Sejuk mata dan hati menengoknya. I learnt a lot from this. MashaAllah.

The pic file from fattabbiouni FB

Youtube channel of fattabiouni. Its in Arabic, somehow. I wish i could pick up Arabic fast. Oh plus i like their color scheme.

ps: Day 2 of Puasa Enam. Im still coughing and phlegm banyak.InshaAllah my ‘Raya’ on 16th!! Malaysian Day. Gonna cook some specialty..hehe.

Some excerpt from Fattabiouni Malaysia

Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم bersabda: “Islam itu pada awal kedatangannya sebagai satu agama yang asing dan Ia akan kembali menjadi asing. Maka, beruntunglah bagi mereka yang asing.

Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم ditanya: “Siapakah yang dimaksudkan dengan mereka yang asing itu wahai Rasulullah?” Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم menjawab: “Mereka itu ialah orang-orang yang menghidupkan sunnahku dan mengajarkannya kepada manusia.”

~ Dengan mengamalkan Sunnah Al-Habib صلى الله عليه وسلم, kita akan memperolehi kasih sayang Allah dan itu merupakan matlamat yang paling tinggi.

– Apa yang menarik ialah sunnah Al-Habib صلى الله عليه وسلم itu mencakupi semua aspek kehidupan: Ibadah, pergaulan dan aktiviti harian. Sunnah ini sangat mudah untuk dilakukan, bahkan barangkali seseorang itu sudah pun mengamalkannya namun dia tidak mengetahui perkara tersebut ialah sunnah. Sekiranya dia berniat apa yang diamalkannya itu sebagai sunnah pasti dia akan mendapat pahala yang sangat besar.

– Untuk mengetahui lebih lanjut lagi tentang sunnah Al-Habib صلى الله عليه وسلم, anda boleh menonton rancangan ‘Fattabiouni’ pada setiap hari sepanjang Ramadhan ini menerusi saluran TV al-Hijrah.

Soulmates and Greys Anatomy s7

Soul mates. It’s extrememly rare but it exists. Sort of like twin souls tuning into each other- What Dreams May Come (1998)

I thought i have found my soul mate, but its far from true. But i know somewhere out there, there is one for me. And i pray the one IS my future husband, inshaAllah. I once like a guy sooo much, i thought he’s the one because we have a lot of thing in common. Almost everything. But it didnt happen because he didnt see me at all. I dont mind because i never hope too much. Expectation will leads us to frustration isnt it. And i always put everything in Allah’s hand. As one quote said ” If something is never meant to you, it will never happen.If it yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee”. So i take good care of my heart of not liking someone too much, but still practicing the law of attraction..by chance. ;p

Actually this thing struck sebab last night i watched Greys Anatomy season 7 baru premiere on StarWorld. Im a biggg fan of GA. Im a sucker for good script in a tv show and I tought GA has the best script writing to date.

Christina and Meredith are soulmates. They have spouse but when someone in trouble, they can rely on each other. They would talk for hours over the phone and it annoys their partner in doing so. For example Christina would call Meredith and would kacau his Derek”s sleep. and Derek would rant about it the next day siap report kat Hunt. aww sweet. I wish my bestfriend would be ok with my future hubby..haha

Cristina: Are you trying to talk me out of this?
Meredith: Look at me and tell me you’re sure.
Cristina: Okay, you know what? You don’t get to do this. All you get to do, is help me break the tie between the lilies of the valley and the peonies. That’s it.
Meredith: No, I do get to do this. Derek is the love of my life, but you’re my soulmate. I do get to do this. I mean, why can’t it wait six months? Your flowers aren’t going anywhere! You broke up with him because he couldn’t choose you. Just why does it have to be right now?
Soulmates doesnt have to be the person you are marrying. It could be your best friend. I really love how they support each other. This line lagi i suka when Christina fell down during a surgery because of her post traumatic stress.
Meredith: Cristina. Cristina!
Cristina: I can’t be in here. I can’t.
Meredith: Okay so let’s go, let’s get out of here.
Cristina: I can’t… I can’t feel anything.
Meredith: I know, I know. Come with me.
Cristina: No, no, I can’t move. I can’t move my legs. I can’t, I can’t feel anything.
Meredith: Uh, feel me hand, take my hand. Do you feel that?
Cristina: Uhuh.
Meredith: Okay. You’re okay. We’re gonna go when you’re ready. Okay? So you tell me when you’re ready. Okay?

Its extremely rare but i think i got one. 🙂

Day 03 — Your favorite television program

Ok i’ve change my mind from the previous post which is not so true..Hehe

Greys Anatomy: I can watch it over and over again. Relates to my experience as well. I meant the good scene one lah.

Desperate Housewives: Loves the ups and downs and how real they portray the wives dilemma. The poster is superr hot kan. How leh hollywood always do great stuff.

Ian Wright-American the wright way: He is the funniest travel tv show presenter… ever.

Giuliana & Bill: They’re both are so meant for each other.. At least from what i can see from the show. I’d love to experience such relationship like them. Its mutually understanding, respecting each others will, belief, G is crazy kid while B is matured and sensible man. I always think that B are always right. hehe.

ANTM best..thats all i can say. 🙂

ps: So zue, dont expect “How i met your mother” could be in MY LIST.haha. SO now i baru paham the show, its about a father telling stories to his kids of how he met their mom. Haha.obviously.Before this i thought that the title has nothing to do with the storyline(considering i never came across the scene where the kids lie on the couch)

Bank of Hollywood-

the judges

There’s this new reality show called Bank of Hollywood that gives away judges money(really?) to the needy just by asking it and explain the relevance behind the amount. Any purpose are allowed, from paying off college fee, settle hospital bill, get married, buy a car, pursue their career, vacations, you name it.

The judges- Sean Patterson ( owner of Wilhelmina Model agency), Melody Thornton (Pussycat doll singer), Candy Spelling (Tori Spelling’s widow, an author), Vanessa Ruosso (Pro poker player). Well..I dont understand why Melody in it..I know they need a singer celebrity as part of the panelist but why her? If they had choose Jessica Simpson, i would agree more.

The’s a lot of America’s dream that need to be fund by this show but in what way the dream will be approved? The judge will fund them if they had concise plan of how the money goes, priority to medical-related problem eg Heart operation, cancer patient treatment(how could anyone say no to this), have solid and proven talent for specific purpose, truly incapable to fund the dream themselves.

My tear drops several times watching this show especially anything related to handicapped, illness-burden people and someone who ask money for others, not their selves.

One example is Ann Belles. She has 50 adopted sons, each with special needs. The judges thought that she has 15, but she correct it by saying “Five Zero”. She ask for $73,000 so that she can buy a wheelchair van to get her children to school and places. Most of the panel shed into tears of thinking how tough this woman is. She doesn’t get the $73,000, and went home with $100,000 instead!

Yesterday theres this woman who need $ for her nursing school fee and her 3rd open heart surgery. She went through a lot in her life. She had heart problem since day 2 in this world and are using heart monitoring device inside. So well of course the judges gives the money to her.

Oh I wanted to help people in needs. Haritu nak pergi volunteer Soup Pertiwi tapi tak pergi-pergi lagi. I sign up MAKNA and SALAM volunteering.

Jules Cobb backyard

Oh my!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im in love with Jules Cobb backyard in Cougar Town.

It was perfect!! Not too large, homey, greeny, barbeque-friendly, neighbour-friendly because its so close to next door…It just feel so right.

I want a backyard like that….

You gotta see it.

Last night had tv marathon of Cougar Town (from ep 4 to 8 only) with Zue. I sleepover at her place..We adore the backyard so much. This show is hilarious. I cant believe the rating in US wasnt so good. The producer was thinking to change the title Cougar Town to something else because the viewers there seems not to like it. Im fine with “Cougar Town”. Maybe only “Cougar” will do just fine.
