Disappointment

You see, I'm joining a camp, those who join will be given a small booklet for collecting funds to help save this starving community from the 3rd world country.

So I informed a group of people (don't want to mention which group) in fb telling them I'm going to collect this thing so that they can actually prepare some money when I collect from them.

To my utter disappointment, they said they have no money, and after much persuasion : "Aiya RM 1 also can lah". Then, they search their bag and handed me RM1.

Ok, maybe some of you will say, "well at least they donate RM1, better than nothing."

Look, the money is not for me okay. It's for charity. Was it that hard to give at least RM5?
I know their family background. They surely can afford more than that.  
How do I know?


Because they can spent so much money on buying branded bags, dresses, travelling.
Because they could buy expensive flight tickets and VVIP seat tickets just to watch their favorite singer.
Because they would rather go exquisite restaurant eating luxurious food.

Why?
I don't get it.

Maybe they're not like me.
Maybe they are insensitive towards these poor society.
Maybe they were thinking that this had got nothing to do with them.
Maybe they are not aware that every 8-12 seconds, a child died from hunger.

Anyway, I was able to collect near RM 0.3k within 3 days.
Thank God, I know it's not very much, but at least I've done my best.

I just hope that 1 day, these people will realize the reason behind every campaign was held.
The funds are
Not for me,
Not for the volunteers,
But the needy.

Cinderella!

I'm on a Cinderella marathon recently. Coz Cinderella is my all time favorite !!!
So here are 9 Cinderella movies that I've watched.
Starting from

1) Walt Disney's Cinderella (1950)



2) German Cinderella Aschenputtel (1989)


This movie is based on The Grim's brother's version. Cinderella's father is not dead. But is blind enough not to notice that Cinderella is abused by her evil stepmother and stepsisters. Her stepsisters had to cut off their heel and toe in order to fit in the shoe. The prince, who is the ugliest among all the Cinderella movies also BLIND and STUPID! He can't recognized the real Cinderella despite dancing with her for 2 nights!
 He need a bird to tell him that there's blood in the shoe! *facepalm*

3) Another Walt Disney Cinderella (1997)

I like this version also. In my opinion, this is the most handsome prince among all other Cinderella's princes.
The actor who played the role is an American Filipino. Love his luxurious voice.

4) Ever After (1998)

As far as I remember, the prince in this movie is a stubborn and stupid ass. Btw, the actor who played Cinderella here had bad acting skills. But overall still nice lah.

5) Cinderella (2000)

This is the weirdest version of Cinderella I've ever watched! Sorry couldn't find any picture better than this.
Cinderella and her family lived in a castle, but her stepmother and astonishingly slutty stepsisters were wearing modern fashion clothes. Her fairy godmother is a Mermaid !
 The prince also lived in a castle, but rides a motorcycle and plays electric guitar!
 and and Cinderella's shoes are made of flower petals !

6) A Cinderella Story (2004)
A modern take on Cinderella.

7) Ella Enchanted (2004)
I kinda like this one. Cinderella was cursed with a spell.

8) Another Cinderella Story (2008)
This version is pretty much the same as A Cinderella Story.

This is my favorite scene, they were dancing tango!

9) Another Cinderella Story : Once Upon A Song (2011)



I like this version very much ! Cinderella has 1 stepsister and 1 annoying stepbrother.
It had a twist at the ending where her stepbrother turned out helping her! 
I love all the soundtracks in this movie!

10 Cinderella II : Dreams Come True (2002)


I just found out that Disney had released Cinderella's sequel back in 2002. The movie was quite disappointing. The plot is divided into 3 different individual story. 

11. Cinderella III : A Twist In Time 2007


Another sequel, this time Disney made it right. This movie is so unexpected in any way. And if you're wondering why there's 2 Cinderellas in the picture? Watch it to find it for yourself.

Out of all these Cinderellas, my favorite is of course the Disney's cartoon version and Cinderella 3 : Once Upon a Song. 

By the way, do you know that Cinder is actually a type of rock which is capable of burning?
Cinderella always slept right beside the mantelpiece and got herself black and dirty.
That's why she got her name Cinderella.
