Sing The Movie


Hi There my lovelies! Are you ready to usher in 2017? I know I am. How did you spend the last day of the year? I spent with hanging out with my sister. We watched the movie, Sing and today I will provide my prospective on the movie.


Story: Sing is directed by writer-director Garth Jennings. It’s an animated comedy from the producers of the Despicable Me films. The movie is centered around a theater loving koala named Buster Moon (voiced by Matthew McConaughey), who decided to run a talent contest to boost sales for his failing theater company. Unfortunately for Buster, a printing error made by his faithful one-eyed lizard secretary Miss Crawl (voiced by Jennings himself) mistakenly reports the prize will be $100,000, not the $1,000 Buster has in his savings bank. The money certainly motivates Mike, a mouse (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) with jerky quality who’s always on the hustle. However, the money is only part of the lure for most of the other major characters, an assortment of mammalian hopefuls including: Rosita, a pig mama of 25 (Reese Witherspoon); Jonny, a teenage British gorilla (Taron Egerton) who does not want follow his father (Peter Serafinowicz) into the family’s bank-robbing business; Ash, a spiky punk porcupine; and finally Meena (Tori Kelly), the painfully shy elephant who is too scared to sing in front of others and ends up working as stagehand for Buster.


Verdict: Sing is very well animated. I would not expect anything less from the maker of Despicable Me. The movie starts out with Norma Noodleman (Jennifer Saunders), a sheep singing in her purple gown with purple theatrical background and silhouette. I loved the color and the brightness and the movies pieces of this movie. It’s a cheerful movie with a positive tone. It’s a feel good movie. What’s the best part of the movie are the amazing songs and music. Apparently, the cast all sang their songs themselves, with surprisingly impressive results. It’s simple, with catchy pop music and jokes that are likely to make kids laugh.


It’s not a perfect movie. There are few things that I didn’t like about the movie. First of all, I didn’t like Rosita’s home life. She does so much for her family, her 25 piglets, and her burnt-out husband (Nick Offerman) barely notices her. He doesn’t even notices when she sets up a Rube-Goldberg contraption to keep her household working when she can’t secure a babysitter to participate in the contest. Similarly, poor Johnny wants his father’s approval. However, at the end Rosita get her husband’s attention with the most passionate kiss, and Johnny’s father breaks out of jail just to let him how proud he is of his son.

Overall, Sing is not quite at the same quality as most of the animated movies we’ve seen this year. However, it is a nice feel-good movie that kids can enjoy. It’s well-animated. It has a wonderful vocal cast, and music is what makes this movie worth the price of admission. It’s a enjoyable to watch and heart-warming and can your mind in a positive prospective.

Goodbye 2016


Hi There! Happy New Years Eve. Can’t believe that today is the last day of 2016. As looking forward to welcoming 2017 I am grateful for a good year though I do admit some of the events did not go as we may have planned. However, we cannot dwell on the past as it will hinder us from moving forward. Below are of the moment I am very proud of.


Dubai Trip: I ushered in 2016 in Dubai. Yes, my friend I ushered in the New Years from Dubai. However, since I was taking a break from blogging at the time I did not share my amazing experience with you. However, don’t be upset. I will provide detail about my trip tomorrow on New Year’s day. I really had a great time.


Completing Ten Years at My Work: I know it may not be much, but last year marked 10 years since I started working at the Children’s National Health System. I literally started my career working at Children’s when I just started graduate school and I cannot believe it has been 10 years. During the 10 years I have had the privilege of working with the most amazing people and met the most amazing families. My worked at Children’s helped me fight for childhood HIV/AIDS, congenital heart disease, newborn critical congenital heart disease screening, and mindful based meditation.


Voting Past November: Although, the outcome of this election has the most heartbreaking and depressing for me, but I could vote for the first time the first female major party nominee who won the popular vote by more than 2.6 million. This is the very first election cycle where I was actively involved in the pollical process and volunteered on behalf of my candidate. Again, though the outcome may not be what I wanted but I know I have done my very best and gave it my all for my candidate and for the love and tolerance I wanted my country to be in. Most of all, what all the protests post election have shown is that people are still here to fight together against any injustice.


Your Support: The one of the biggest thing I am happy about is the support that I have received for you, my wonderful readers after my almost a yearlong break that I had to take from blogging due to health and personal reason. When I returned to blogging past Halloween post, I receive respond. Thank you so much for your constant support and feedback. Reading your comments and sharing my thoughts with you and always lifted me up. Thank you! I will continue to bring my honest and true feedback and I always look forward to your comments and feedback. Please check out and like my Facebook, Instagram, and Bloglovin pages. I will try to like. If for some reason, I miss please message me.

Finally, beautiful and sweet friends, let’s take a moment of silence to remember all those who left us this year and take pride in reflecting back on all the amazing things that we have accomplished the year that has been 2016. Today I will finish with the following excerpts from author Neil Gaiman:

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes.Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
