Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix

image taken from:

hmm...some how the character standing arrangement reminds me of x-men or other movie.

well, this movie was not one of my most anticipated film this year, but i still curious to see it, having seen its previous movies. The last movie-"The Globet of Fire" was very good, i'm not a Harry Potter fan and i didn't read the novel but i quite enjoy it.

most people say about the order of phoenix is that it's not so gud. i think maybe it's because the previous movie's standard is higher so if you make comparision it is not as good as the previous. but if you judge indepently, i think it's still quite ok. it's stil a movie worth to watch at cinema.

i stil enjoy the feeling of seeing magical wonder in the film, or some intense spell fighting n some funny moments, haha or maybe i don't really complain alot when watching film. cos i think that if you complain too much you tend to lose the joy of watching. so normaly i just relax, clear my mind and get into the film itself.

After watching, when i was half way walking down the stairs to carpark i suddenly found my car key missing! wah so kinteo....quickly go back to the cinema, people are starting going into the hall for the next movie, luckily the lights haven't dim, i told the ticket boy at the door and he lead me in.

luckily it was there at my seat! and my seat is not occupied by people yet. it must have trip off when i put my legs up at the seat because it's a bit cold. i even saw other frens at the front row of my seat, he say if he found it then he pay for one movie and get one free car!

after i went out of the hall, my fren who's with me say she couldn't find her she went with the ticket boy to her seat but couldn't find it... she later think carefully and figure that she might left it at her house. hmm....luckily she did. luckily i found my car key.

or else one lose car one lose handphone. wah....really lucky.

here a picture i found in google, haha...harry potter simpson version

kl? kuching?

i've been thinking about this for a while, whether i should stay here and work at good old hometown kuching, or go pia and chong at kl for my career.

well, there are many reasons behind this as well, one thing is that they say young people should workhard and go for it! (pia and chong) when they are young for their career, hence i have this urge to go kl find work, (hmm....cos kl more frens there, singapore less fren and more expensive, so not consider singapore for the moment)

but then reality sets in, well, if i go kl work, i would need to pay for my living expenses, so...ahah, and you know, kl living expense higher in kuching, so might not be able to save some money at all. compare if i work in kuching, at least i stay with my parents, got car to drive, got frens to find, haha then at least still can save some money. in kl beside money problem also face security problems, life is also more hectic there, unlike here easy going.

that's why i come to conclusion to work at kuching here first, get a few years experience then decide again. at least if i got a few years work experience then i would be better equipped compare to a fresh graduate. haha, although my work is quite busy, but i still a bit afraid working in kuching would make me feel too safe and protected. haha, as they say "when you're in the comfort zone, you wouldn't work hard". haha, but i also think like this:" if you're comfortable, y choose to be uncomfortable?" . why go kl to work when i know it'll be hard and tough on me, just for experience? see, i have two side of me contradicting myself. i lack the courage to try? or do i lack the wisdom to decide which one suits me better?

well, for me, i like to live things normal, so kuching would be ideal place. but again, the urge to go kl work is still strong. because when you get older, you tend to lose more of your fighting spirit, beside i've never experience living indepently. haha but i do consider my family commitment here in kuching. i'm quite bonded to my brothers and cherish my frenship here so if i go, i'm afraid to loose it.

haha i told my fren, if we work here and work quite good, then no need to consider to go kl work, haha, go kl play better:)

actually i almost decide to go kl oledy, cos i've been finding jobs for a while after i graduate but stil couldn't find suitable one. but then i landed to my current job now. so i would work hard for maybe one or two years, learn as much as i can, gain valuable experience. then i would decide again.

The Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime

a very funny edited transformers dialogue.

More than meet the eyes- Transformers

image of optimus prime v.s. sorry-i-forgot-who's-this-robot taken from:

i'll like to talk about my most anticipated movie this year, transformers which i just watch at cinema recently.

For most male audience around my age, they would have watch transformers cartoon when they're young. i was quite a fan by then, so naturally i'm very anticipated to see the show on big screen for the first time. Earlier trailer doesn't show alot of actions so i was a bit disappointed, but later trailer shows more which made me more inclined to watch.

but i was quite suprise than this movie also received alot of positive feedback from female audience, cos mostly they didn't watch the original transformer cartoon...hmm...i think that's the success of this movie. one of my fren even say if you have watch transformers, you can throw away all the movie you have watch this year!

Some people got comment that some of the actions sequence is too fast and couldn't distinguish which one is bad or good, but for me i think it's still ok, as i know the characters already haha. too bad, there's not much robots as in the cartoon, but hopefully the director would shoot the transformers sequel. i've read about it in newspaper, he say that he would consider if the box office is good, haha hopefully they would be one.

i was a bit disappointed because they didn't include some of the characters like soundwave, in which mini casket can came out from his body and transform into small robots, (i've seen the movie producers discuss about this issue in their official website, seems that they choose frenzy over soundwave because of the plot issues) and also the dinobots, and construction bots, which both can combine into a larger robots, would be so cool...haha perhaps in the sequel..

hmm...if this's gona be a trilogy movie, i hope that second episode would include more robots, and larger battle scale, the third they will go back go cybertron! yes, cybertron and fight the gigantic unicron. wow...

haha overall, it's a great and entertaining movie to watch. i've found a very funny youtube transformers video which the dialogue is edited by fans. enjoy.

Autobots, transform and roll out!

the new seven wonders of the world

hmm....this post may be a bit late (this few days nite all go out:P), but still i wana talk about it anyway.

The new seven wonders of the world is declared on the eventfull day at 7th July 2007 or 07/07/07 at Lisbon, Portugal after a global voting by internet, sms and telephone.
so here's the list:

1. Great Wall of China
2. Christ the Redeemer of Brazil
3. Petra of Jordan
4. Machu Pichu of Peru
5. Roman Colosseum of Italy
6. Chichen Itza of Mexico
7. Taj Mahal of India

There's one special honorary award which is for the Great Pyramind of Giza, the sole survivor from the ancient seven wonders of the world. The other six wonders of the ancient world lies in crumbles or is lost. We must really give credit to the Great Pyramids, imagine how could they build such a BIG building with such precisions 5 thousands years ago? And yet it still survive proudly until today.

Well, they are many critics saying that the voting are not fair and all that stuff as the organization cannot stop people from voting more than twice. haha, imagine if all the citizen of China cast one vote, i suppose the organization must have a hard time counting too. The candidates that won celebrate around their monuments while the lost, oh well....nobody like to lose.

among the seven candidates, six are buildings, one is statue, which is Christ the Redemeer. Well, in my opinion although Christ the Redeemer have religious significant, but still, it's only a statue. compare to the rest, which are great big building or super structure, you know the ones that takes thousands of slaves and sacrifices to build. haha, i think that's my idea of ancient great buildings or super structure. and besides, it's not so old if compare to the rest.

haha, sorry if i hurt any feelings, no offence. Just that in my idea, "wonders" should be BIG, the BIGGER the better.

Example BIG as in The Great Wall of China scale. It's the longest man made structure ever. Well, as a chinese i should talk something about the Great Wall:) I've read article and picture that the Great Wall is the only man made structure that can be seen from the moon. Now, most part are being overgrown with vegetation and plant, only some site they maintain it for tourist as it would really cost a forturne to maintain everypart of it. There's a chinese saying “不到长城非好汉" which roughly translate that if you haven't been to the great wall, you're not a good,true chinese! i should plan a trip in my life time to return to the place of my roots.

Another thing i would like to talk about is the Taj Mahal, i've heard that the marbles that made the buildings is threat to corrosion. And The King who built the Taj Mahal as a tomb for his Queen, i've heard that in story he actually plan to build one black one for himself but the construction of Taj Mahal nearly drain the country's economy that time. if not, we would now have two buildings instead of one.

hmm...that's all for me for now, for more information you can check it out at wikipedia or

karaoke in kuching~

last weekend was a karaoke weekend for me, really "song"!

friday, saturday and sunday went with different groups of frens to different place of karaokes. haha, at first when i go at friday and saturday i tot that maybe i should reserve some voice for 2molo, or else sing too "song" then lose voice for 2molo. but then i think again aiya, what the heck, i like singing and a bit thick face also mah, so i should sing as much as i like, haha. (luckily din lose my voice)

friday i went to Ah jian's place, (actually i forgot about the name of the place) this place was like the more usual or can i say traditional style of karaoke place. there's just one big place they have many tables and chairs, with some big projectors or tvs in front for the karaoke. you don't pay for the karaoke service itself, but pay for the extra expensive drinks. i think the only good thing is that you're in an open space in if you sing good, you'll get applause from other tables which is damn good feeling, haha

but they are many disadvantages as well, one major flaws is that you need to wait for your turn, one table may get 2or3 songs (depending on the amount of drinks you order), then pass to another table and other. so if they are more people, then you need to wait longer, and the wait can be very tidious sometimes. one thing is that in these open places, you can't hardly chit chat as the music would be very loud, if other ppl sing not good, you also need to endure the pain or supress yourself from laughing too loud. another major thing i don't like is that they would allow smoking in air-con that would be bad news for non-smokers like me.

saturday i went to saberkas, "sing song". the place is totally different from traditional karaoke place. the place is divided into multiple small boxes, where box there's room for maximum three people and a big tv in front. you pay RM1 for one song. the good thing is tat you don't have to wait for other people and it's non smoking too. for those shy singers this would be a better place for them as well, more privacy, but disadvantage is that it cannot hold more than 3 people, so it lacks the fun of many ppl singing together. but sometimes i do go there myself, to tryout to sing some new songs (testing by myself, if good then baru wil sing in front of others) and also to sing some crazy song (haha, cos some songs wouldn't appeal to the general public which is best left alone)

sunday i went to podwave, the newest? in pentanak. they follow the same idea as redbox in kl. They have small rooms to fit about 5-10 or more people. you pay for the karaoke services by head count hourly or by packages. the place is good as it's somehow combine the best advanatages of the two karaoke place above, more space, no need to wait for others. and it has many new songs. but well, it's more expensive.

but there's one packages that we take and i would like to recommend, which is quite reasonable. it's RM13.90 per head. you get to sing for 3 hours, with lunch provided. the time is from 11am to 2pm. the lunch is simple rice, soup, meat and vege but it taste suprisingly good! it's also my first time experience to eat and sing...i remember when it's my turn to sing, i didn't sing the first few sentence as i still got some rice in the corner of my teeth.

karaoke is quite a fun hobby. most importantly is not whehter you can sing well, but to have fun! the fun you get from having a group of frens singing together (although may not sing well) is much more compare to the fun of having just one person singing.

so that's all for now, haha. cheers:)
