      Do you wanna partner?

      Partner is a typical film by Daviod Dhawan in the respect that he likes to make films with 2 main male roles and he prefers Salman Khan and Govinda. It came out in 2007 and was a huge hit as it was a great comeback for the actors, mainly Govinda, and it was very funny. It also ofcourse had 2 gorgeous women in which probably attracted quite a few people too. The story starts off with Slaman Khan whop plays Prem. He is a love guru. Spending his childhood growing up amongst girls he knows what girls think and want and can therefore help others to love. When Bhaskar Devakar Chaudhry (Govinda) approaches him and tells him that he is in lvoe with Priya Jai Singh (Katrina Kaif), his billionaire boss Prem tells him it is impossible. Prem meets with Neha. She is a reporter and when running away from Chota Don (Rajpal Yadav) she is rescued by Prem. He falls for her instantly but she has a child who is not very fond of Prem. This film is really funny and great to watch wth children or as a family.

      Everybody knows you don't mess with a kid on christmas!

      Home Alone is a great comedy christmas movie. I have it on dvd so have watched it countless times. The story revolves an 8 year old boy calld Kevin McCalister (played by McCauley Kulkin). He is the youngest chld of a large wealthy family in chicago and with his cousins and uncle and aunt stayng too, the house is chaos. They are all set to go on holiday to paris but the night before, kevin has an argument with his mum and is sent uyp to the attic. He wishes he could be home alone. The next morning through an unlucky chain of vents, the family set off thinking that kevin is with them and not remembering he was sent to the attic. There are 2 robbers, harry and marv, who are planning to rob his house. Kevin is scared so makes it seem like there is a party but they come back again. This time though he is prepared and we see him put the robbers through hell. Kevin McCauley plays the part brilliantly as he seems very innocent and a typical 8 year old boy. At the start of the film he is not very confident as he is always overshadowed by his brothers and sisters but we see this change a sthe film goes on. The robbers were also good casting as they are intimidating but you can still laugh at them. This film is a classic.

        A truly magical story

        Koi Mil Gaya is a film made by Rakesh Roshan and it his second film that he has made with his son Hrithik Roshan starring as the lead male role. His first film was Kaho Naa Pyar Hai which was one of the most successful debut films ever. The film is a new concept for bollywood - science fiction. It was very original because it was completely different to the storylines of typical bollywood films. The story is basically Hrithik Roshan who plays Rohit, a grown man with the mind of a child due to his mother being in an accident. His father was a scientist who tried to prove that aliens did exist. Rohit befriends Nisha. At first they fight terribly but as she learns about his problem she slowly starts to warm to him.

This is received and a space ship lands on earth but forgets one of the alien children before leaving again.

        Revising is essential if you want to pass exams!

        I think the best tip for revising efficiently is do it in a way that works for you. Teachers have their own style and they sometimes do not realise that each student is different and will have their own individual learning style. Revision is not effective whilst on msn or facebook because you will simply not be able to concentrate. You should revise in blocks of about half an hour and then have a short break to refresh your mind and body again. Water is essential as it will hydrate the brain whereas sugary drinks will give your body energy but slow your brain down. Mind mapping is a very powerful way of remembering information. Using colours, shapes and pictures will help you to be able to recall the information better. Some people might remember information orally so they could try making a cd with key facts on it and listen to it. You can use stories or mnemonics to associate information with things you are familiar with and therefore it is put in a format that you understand and are comfortable with. Some schools or teachers also do brain gym with students which helps them to relax and not panic. Failing to prepare means preparing to fail.

        The greatest team today

        Liverpool F.C. has always been amongst the top teams and because of the quality of the players, it has maintained its top spot. Even as we speak, they are top of the premiership league table. They have always played at Anfield, which is their home ground and have won more first division titles than any other english team. I have always been a livepool supporter since i was a little girl. I used to absolutely adore michael owen and was heartbroken when he left. Having said that though, there are a couple of old time players left such as Jamie Carragher and Sami Hypia who will always be a favourite amongst fans as they never fail to deliver. Steven Gerrard is the captain and is probably the best player on the team. He always keeps the team motivated and i think one of the reasons that this club is so successful is because the players are great at working as a team. He always gives 110% at every single match and normally scores top quality goals aswell. Also, Fernando Torres is one of the best strikers in the world and is invaluable to the team. He is also very fast and a favourite amongst fans.

          The best tasting chocolate that doesn't cost the world

          Ferrero Rocher are the chocolates that you never get tired of easily and ones which you just can't seem to stop eating until they are all gone. The chocolates are of very high quality and really make the consumer feel they are havng a treat. Each one comes wrapped in gold fold and and a little brown case with the ferrero rocher mini sticker on it. The actual chocolate is simply heavenly. They are intended to be savoured and enjoyed and they certainly do. The centre is a roasted hazelnut surrounded by hazelnut praline and rick milk chocolate. This is then covered in a thin wafer and then an outer layer of chocolate and chopped up nuts. Each mouthful is a new experience and they are definitely my favourite chocolate. They can come in different packs and sizes. You can get them in a small square case for 4, a rectangular box whixh comes with 16 chocolates and also a tray which gives you i think 24. Obviously they are not as cheap as other chocolates but considering the quality and their amazing taste the price is not too bad. If there is anyone who has not tried these then i would definitely recommend them!

            East will always be east!

            East is East is a hilarious comedy that is set in Salford in the 70's. The story is about a family who are stuck between two worlds and don't really fit in anywhere. The father George (played by Om Puri) is a muslim from Pakistan who rules his household with a heeavy hand. He wants his family to be religious muslims and follow the path of islam even if they are not happy. His wife Ella (played by Linda Bassett) is white and wants all 7 of her kids to be accepted for who they are. George wants to move to Bradford where there is a bigger asian community and after his eldest son Nazir runs out of his marriage because it is arranged and he has never seen his wife before, George deals with his kids even more firmly. He fixes 2 of his sons up with his friends daughters who look like monsters and it is absolutely hilarious when they come round to visit. Underneath the humour eptance. It has some big names in such as Om Puri, Jimi Mistry and Archie Punjabi. It does have somethough the film covers some serious issues such as love and acceptance. There is some bad language in it but that just adds to the film's originality.

              The unsinkable ship....?

              Titanic is perhaps one of the most touching romantic films i have seen. It stars Kate Winslet as lovely Rose who is upper class and Leonardo Di Capro who stars as Jack a fun loving lower class civilian. They both board the titanic on it's way to America. It is called unsinkable but when the ship hits an iceberg, it soons starts to prove that fact wrong. Rose is meant to be getting married to an upper class man (played by Billy Zane) and doesn't really have a choice as her and her mother have been left debts by her father and marrying a rich man is the only way to pay them off. Rose breaks off the marriage as she realises she loves Jack whilst the ship is sinking. The ship is chaotic whilst everyone is trying to get on a boat and save their families. The story is recounted by a 101-year-old Rose in the present times and the film is her memories. The storyline is unique and believable and the casting was perfect. This film probably was the making of Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet and won countless awards. Probably one of the most successful films of all time.

                Boots stores are definitely best value for your money

                Boots is probably the best chemist there is. This is because their pharmacy section always has a member of staff who is friendly and actually tries to help you unlike other chemists where the staff just stay behind the counter and chat wth each other. The layout of most boots stores is good as the aisles are quite spacious and the products are clearly on view. The make up aisles are also very good as they have the standard make up brands separate such as Maybelline adn L'Oreal and then they have boots own brand make up aswell which is also quite good. It is also quite reasonably cheap and the product quality is good considering that for a couple of quid you can get some foundation or mascara that will last you weeks if not a month or two. They also have lots of offers on like 3 for 2, especially around christmas time so there is a wide range of christmas gifts too. Also, boots are great for babies as they sell everything and you can get everything you need for your baby from clothes to nappies all in one store. Also, you can get a boots magazine and also get points for everything you buy and then redeem them.

                The art of the chocolatier

                Thornton's is a chocolatier and sells only the finest quality of chocolate. They are known for being quite expensive but most think it is worth it as the quality of the chocolate is divine. They sell a lot of novelty chocolate and especially at christmas time such as chocolate santa's and you can also personalise gifts and use them as christmas presents. Thorntons sell chocolate hampers, mothers day hampers and also easter eggs so they have quite a range of products to choose from. Some of thier products are really innovative. They use strawberry jam and mint and orange and vanilla flavouring to give the chocolate that extra oomph which really distinguishes thorntons chocolate from other brands which seem quite bland in comparison. The only bad thing is that eating too much of it can make you feel sick as the chocolate is very rich in flavour and texture so it fills you up quickly. Thorntons is doing especially well at the moment as we are going towards a recession but people buy more chocolate instead. It seems the saying is true...chocolate can make everything better!

                Somewhere you can find a real bargain if you look hard enough

                TK Maxx is a well known clothing store and sells clothes for men, women and children. It also sells accessories and childrens' toys. It sells good quality clothes at a cheap price and this includes designer gear aswell. It is not one of those shops that you can pop in to for a quick look around. You need to go when you have plenty of time on your hands. The layouts of all the branches i have ever visited are pretty much the same. There are different sections of the store for each category for example one part will be shoes and the other will be baby clothes. It can get quite crowded. The clothes, especially for women, are mostly on rails in size order or season order. Some garments form the previous season will normally be on offer. By the tills, there is a normally a section where there are gifts that you can by. This includes stuff like liquer chocolates or perfumes or toiletry sets. I think this store has a lot of choice and you can sometimes find a real bargain.

                  Branded products as a cheaper price

                  Wilkinsons is well known retailer that has been around for quite some time and nearly all town centres will have a branch because it is very popular amongst consumers. This is because there is a wide variety in the range of products that it sells. You can find branded products at a cheap price or wilko's own brand which is even cheaper but still of a good quality. It is big on selling toiletries and also the stationary is cheap and great quality. They have offers during the sumemr holidays which is meant to tempt school children and students. For example they had the book of refill lined paper (80 sheets) at 69p buy one get one free although i think this offer has finished now. They also had ringbinders in a different choice of colours at just 75p! Wilkinsons also sell snack food such as crisps, sandwiches, drinks and chocolate bars. This is always good as you can just go in to pick up lunch or a snack if you are feeling a bit peckish instead of having to go to a newsagents or a busier store. I can see this store being around for quite some time yet as it is popular amongst consumers and successful.

                  Most important meal of the day?

                  Breakfast is the msot important meal of the day as it is what gives you energy to perform your daily activities. Most of the time in the morning i am in quite a hurry and therefore have to compensate breakfast for extra sleep or getting ready. The occassional times i do have breakfast, which is mostly on weekends when i get to lie in, i am not a fan of huge fried breakfasts everyday. They are ok once in a while but normally my brakfast is just a bowl of cereal (coco pops) or some toast or cedreal abrs (coco pops again) and occassionally when i can be bothered, cheesy crumpets. When there are other people staying round or the whole family just feel like having a big breakfast then my mum will make a huge brunch comprising of buttered bread, jam toast, cheese toast, crumpets, eggs....you get the general idea. I hate the thought of going to get a fry up from a cafe. For me i prefer home cooked food over greasy fry ups from a shop but that's jsut my personal preference.
