Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Im not much of a Harry Potter's fan, but surprisingly, i never miss any of the episodes that released in the cinema. Then i felt that since i've watched the last 5, i might as well not to miss the one. So yesterday, Vince and i went to the Queensbay to catch this epic movie. Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince.


I must say, although Professor Dumbledore died towards the end of the movie, but somehow i find this movie rather fascinating. I never have the urge to watch any of the Harry Potter series, but right now, im very much anticipated to watch the last of its lengthy chronicle, The Deadly Hollow.

Personally i felt that Professor Snape is more than just a mere professor. I sense he's an inside man, like a spy. His character and the way he mysteriously portray himself, just makes me curious, makes me wonder...

That Thing We Do In Karaoke

College, thats where another chapter began its story, another journey unfold. It is where i felt my life is really starting. Adding in more vibe and vibrant, making it more meaningful in every aspect. One of the many thousand things i learned is singing. Not that im practically good in it, but its just that i enjoy the time spend and the leisure of expressing myself.

During my life in college, my gang and i usually go for a karaoke session before our afternoon class, and we would happily sing out loud. There is this time where 6 of us went for a karaoke session in Star KTV at OneStop. Each of us would then impersonate an artist, sing its song and make an interview.

Me (Jay Chou) singing An Jing (Silence)
Dexter (Andy Lau) singing Lian Xi (Practise)
YewMeng (Guang Liang) duet with Henrick (Ping Guan) singing Tong Hua (Fairytale)
Vince (Ron Ng) singing Bit Guai Ta (Dont Blame Her)
Jimmy (Bee Gees) singing Staying Alive

Until today, im still keeping all the footage with me. A collection as a proft on how crazy we could be. Here's another one on the once famous hit.

Tong Hua

As be fair to others, i put one of my own recordings first. Dont know why i sing an Indo Rock also, but i like that song...

Makin Aku Cinta

Among all the recording that i've made, somehow this is the best i've ever interviewed so far. Enjoy and have a good laugh. LOL. XD

Staying Alive

Honestly, its a custom that all of us like to bully him. At times he's like a scapegoat for us, and we'll make fun of him all the time. I know we are mean, but despite the numerous times, we're still the best buddies around. By the way, i like him singing the Hokkien song, Chin Nan Mong, literally for "Its hard to forget". Hahaa. ^^

I noticed that we are noisy. Hahahaa...

SideNote: I've taken permission from the artist wannabe before posting this entry... ^^

It Is Itchy... *scratch*

Ahhh... Monday. Wasnt a good start afterall. *scratch scratch*

After 10 days vanishing myself from the office, the sudden laziness is devouring me. Where have i been? Public holiday and attended a 5 days training opposite Queensbay. I enjoy the course provided (Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 at InfoTrek) very much as its indeed beneficial and useful to me, able to equip myself better with the skill sets i needed. Furthermore, they also provide us with a handsome amount of cash for lunch allowance, *hint hint*, wondering if the company would ever learn the example.

As i said, it wasnt a good start. Im feeling sleepy right now, and its definitely its because of last night. The uneasiness within me, that intense itchiness all over my body, especially on my armpits and groins. Its been a rough night, a sleepless night. Just whats wrong with me? I had an appointment with the doctor at 2:30PM; i need some cream or ointment. Hope it could reduce those unwelcome diseases.

As for tonight, i need a good rest... till then...

Transformers ROTF Deluxe Class Sideswipe

So here it is... my Sideswipe.

Damn, im good!

I've gone searching for high and low for it, but apparently all the shops that i went to had this model being sold out. In fact, almost every shop had completely sold out their "hot" items, except for some of the least favourables. It kind of surprising to me when i realized that Sideswipe was one of the items that's being sold out so quickly.

Thus, i went online to look for this cool robot at Mudah.com.my. There's a guy, Kenny P'ng, who's selling at RM70 in Penang, and its new. Considering i got an extra funding from my training's lunch allowance, i contact Kenny and placed my order.

my new toy...

I had quite a hard time trying to get it out from the box since i dont want to damage both the toy and the box. I still want to keep it like how it is (just incase for second value). It wasnt easy to transform to the robot mode, took me couple of minutes. It had its deployable blades and stand on his wheels, so its pretty unstable until you find the right spot. However still, the end product is really awesome. It fascinate me.

Sideswipe is so YENG~~

you want a piece of me?

Im now considering to get another one, the ROTF Deluxe Class of Bumblebee. Should i?

Could It Be GSC Cinema In Queensbay Mall Is Haunted

I received a mail the other day as soon as i walk into my office. It appears that there's some strange and unusual sighting when you're trying to make an online purchase of ticket(s) on GSC Cinema website.

It's said that regardless of movie, time and day, in Hall 8 of GSC Cinema Queensbay Mall Penang, there are always 4 seats being taken up. What makes it eerie is that its always the same 4 seats in Hall 8! Seats number F1, F2, F3 and F4. Thus you cant possibly buy that seats online. Most probably you would reply that the seats are broken or under repair. If you notice, those seats are not indicated as "under repair".

taken at Hall 8 on 10th July 2009 12:30AM

The curious me had tried to check it out and to my surprise, whats being claimed are true. It doesnt matter with what movie being screened, or the time and the day, those 4 seats in Hall 8 will always be made unavailable to purchase online.

The question is, WHY? Why is it so? Whats the underlying truth behind the curtain? Is there any unspeakable reason that shall not be told? Could it be a mishap had once occurred in those seats, thats why they are locked? Are they haunted? Could it be as simple as just a bug or the system's faulty? Or is it merely just some reserved seats for the employees?

There's every right for you to doubt on my 2 cents worth. My urge for those who dont believe me, please go to the website and find out yourself. The truth is out there...

2012

21 December 2012. Probably many had heard the rumors claming the world would end in this very date. With all the theories spreading in an exponential rate in numerous books, Internet sites and TV documentaries, is it true that the end is near?

The movie 2012 is going to be released on November this year. And honestly, i just cant wait to see. I could see its something like The Day After Tomorrow where it shows massive disasters and destructions upon our lands, except The Day After Tomorrow focused more on the consequences of global warming. Here are the trailers on 2012.





Just the thought of the gigantic tsunami are going to consume the Himalaya Mountains are so overwhelming. Its like the beginning of an end.

The forecast is based on the Mayan Calendar or Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar that's reach the end of its baktun cycle in December 21 or 23, 2012 during winter solstice, along with interpretations of assorted legends, scriptures, numerological constructions and prophecies. To my understanding, when the baktun had reached its end, it will reset the numbers and move to a higher count, that marks a new dawn.

A New Age interpretation of this transition posits that, during this time, the planet and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation rather than an Armageddon, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a newer sociopolitical age for the global community. - this is what i believe.

The Mayan left us a calendar with symbols to decipher, and we found out that the cycle ends in 21 December 2012. But if the calendar is rounded without any polygons, why couldnt it be a continuality? For example in Chinese horoscopes, we're now living in the Year of Ox, so the next cycle is Year of Rabbit. Im sure you heard of those terms like "Stone Age", "Medieval Age" and "Modern Age"? To me, its quite the same as the concept of a baktun. Just numbers. Plus, the academic research does not indicate that the Mayan attached any apocalyptic significance to the year 2012.

Polar shifting as a result of galactic alignment. Constantly i wonder how true is it? Lets say it is going to happen, the scientists and the astronomers could not even create a prototype or simulate the exact scenario to strengthen their theory of pole shifting that cause the world end in just the matter of hours or days. Honestly i agreed on polar shifting due to magnetic forces, but if you're referring to the impacts and damages like in the movie 2012, i felt its too exaggerated.

The Hopi prophecy, the Bible's Book of Revelation, the prophecy of the Tiburtine Sybil, the Lost Book of Nostradamus, and even from the Merlin and Mother Shipton may reckon doomsday or end of the world. Whatever the end may be, they didnt proposed any date the catastrophes will occur. As a result, all those prophecies are subject to "applicable" whenever needed. Lets say 8 solid years from now, another hidden astrological artifact claims that a comet will hit on Earth in 2019, i bet those prophecies will be reused and recycle.

Thus, i believe all these are put together to create an uproar and uneasiness within us. With these curiosity, panic and fear, it would indirectly inject and propel increment of sales in books, magazines and papers as we feel the needs to find out more. Probably that would have answer why there's a sudden emergence of books that co-relate to 2012 in my local bookstores. Webpage popularity and number of hit counts in a day would gain them cash. Sort of blogging for money. Making a movie out of it, 2012, could instantly generate a huge some of income as well.

However, i believe that all these are mere speculations and assumptions. I'll remain skeptical until i've seen the truth. I'll rather believe in global warming that we are now experiencing. The poles are melting; climates are changing dramatically, the trapped heat in our atmosphere. But still, im very anticipate to watch 2012 in cinema. The CGI effects, the ideas and thoughts on how the world would face its dooms, are just intriguing. There are many things still need to be done before the year 2012, i still got a whole lots of things i want to do.

2012 is near... and you had been warned.

Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Autobot: Sideswipe

I had a dinner with Vince today at Queensbay, and he told me earlier on that he was at Robot Master looking at Gundam. Being the curious me, i dragged him along to that shop to check out on Transformers Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) action figures.

Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

It was this Autobot which im attracted after watching the movie, and he is Sideswipe. I felt that he was cool with a silver paint on his body. Pretty much like Jazz at the first look, except for his has two wheeled feet and with two retractable arm blades in robot mode.

His role in ROTF was extremely minimal and limited to just a scene! Despite his ability in close combat, he just a kelefe in the movie, which is a pity. Lets us hope he would have an important role to play in the following movie.

As soon as i got into the shop, Robot Master, i search high and low for it, but was left in vain. The sales promoter told me later it was sold out. Surprising isnt it? I could possibly understand if its Optimus Prime, Bumblebee or Megatron. Anyway, i left my name and contact number for them, with the message to contact me if it arrived.

The story didnt end there. As soon as i got home, i went Google for it, and OMG!!! Its so cool. No wonder its out of stock! The more i look at it, the more im addicted to it. I so must own it! Immediately i rang up the Robot Master in Queensbay, and make an order! I want ROTF TAKARA DELUXE CLASS SIDESWIPE!!!

Sideswipe in the Covette Stingray Concept car
and the action figure of itself

Im getting myself Sideswipe!

This action figure of Sideswipe going to burn another hole in my pocket, but i dont care! Probably its going to be another week or two of potato rice. But it makes me happy to own it. I should stop going to shopping mall... LOL.

I found this video in YouTube. Its pretty cool.



As for now... im waiting for them to call me. ^^

Damn, im good...

The Love Of My Life

Invisible. Thats how i used to look at myself. Words couldnt reach the ear; actions couldnt breach the border. Existence was a plain 9 letters word without a meaning. I blend perfectly into the crowds with nothing unique to distinct me among the rest. Like a chameleon, i camouflage into the nature instinctively.

Metaphorically, never could i have the role as a protagonist any theater of play. Apart from being spectator watching from the bottom, the best is just a supporting role. A benchwarmer. You reckon King Arthur, the wizard Merlin, the brave Lancelot, the loyal Gawain, but who remember Tristan? I was the least noticeable, the least favourite.

I dont know when it happened, but out of sudden, it just did.

Life was brought to a meaning. A purpose and something to look forward. Its like for once in your life, you know how the road bends and to where it leads. Its the best thing that ever happened. Im just head over heels, and crazy about it. The reason to have a smile each day; the reason that makes you realize just how beautiful the world is.

And the reason is her, my dear, Shu Fong.

me and my dear, Shu Fong
dining at Ferringhi Garden

She have the angelic face with shiny radiance complexion. A sweet smile of hers could set things straight, its like carrying a loads of "everything will be okay" in it. It calms you down and lifts you up. Soft spoken and polite; the beauty that could mesmerize the world as she might. Lips of a devil, silky hair; she's simply suave, sexy and sophisticated. Everything about her is just right, fits the missing puzzle. She completes me.

Every time our eyes meet
This feeling inside me
Is almost more than I can take
Baby when you touch me
I can feel how much you love me
And it just blows me away

I've never been this close to anyone or anything
I can hear your thoughts
I can see your dreams

I don't know how you do what you do
I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I want to spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby, I'm amazed by you...

Just 2 more months and we could be together. She's currently taking her Masters in Newcastle, coming back in this September. GOD i miss her so much!


Shu dear, I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!
