Fast and Furious 5 with P14G and ChurpChurp at TGV, KLCC

Thanks to P14G, ChurpChurp & TGV, I was FAST enough to watch the Premiere Screening of Fast & Furious 5 one week earlier. The movie details are as follow:

Venue: TGV, KLCC
Time: 9.00pm

Before I start with the movie review, I would like to draw attention of P14G and TGV. It's some constructive opinions from a customer.
  1. More communication between the sponsor and the cinema in future events - We were told by officers from P14G that we could enter the cinema at 8.30pm although the screening was at 9.00pm. However, we were still not allowed to enter at 8.35pm. We could have walked around instead spending our time waiting.
  2. Get preparation done earlier - The popcorns and drinks were onlyplaced by the cinema workers when we were entering the cinema. I think this could be done earlier. Besides, P1 had planned for a mini-competition to give out prizes. Due to the malfunction of the microphone, it had to be delayed and thus caused the delay of the screening. I think that TGV should make sure everything is well-prepared much earlier.
Hope this will help in improving the services provided. Thanks for the great movie.

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are back again. More nicer car. This time they are at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It's slightly related to Fast & Furious 4. Still remember that episode was finished when Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto) was in the prison van, 3 cars suddenly appeared from behind and he started smiling? Guess what, he is back in action. Not only him, all his buddies are also back with a greater job, an unresistable offer.

This is what happen when a bunch of experts are planning for something big. The co-operation and courage makes their task from mission impossible or insane mission to achievable. Some of you may have already watch the trailer, you might think that they are robbing a BANK. You will knew that it's NOT JUST A BANK when you watch it.

Somehow, there will be some obstacles. Whether they are stopped or they are able to overcome, catch them in the big screen. It's a must watch movie. Rated as 4.5/5.

My favourite quote from Vin Diesel when he is going to get his necklace back.

"I thought no one will understand this, but you did."

Pretty guys and girls + Nice cars + Unexpected plots + Great actions = Awesome combination

Thor Movie Review

Since young until now, we are always accompaned by Marvel Heroes: Captain America and X-Men. They are not just only mitos or bedtime storries during childhood. They are heroes that we believe in them. Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of superhero: THOR.

Courtesy to Nuffnang Glitterati Plus, I have the chance to attend the press screening of Thor 2 days earlier. It's even merrier when I got a 3D spectacles before entering the cinema. However, the 3D effect is not significant in this movie. The screening of Thor will be in the big screen starting 28th April 2011.

In this movie, there are two persons that you can't miss.

1) Chris Hemsworth.

He does have a well-built body. A body that the guys wish for and the girls can't take their eyes off.

2) Natalie Portman

The actress for Black Swan and No string Attached is one of the reasons that we should not miss this movie.

This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

It does take some sacrifications to let an arrogant king-to-be to learn how to be a real king, a king that will put his people's interest as priority. When the time comes, the truth will reveal.

Overall, the movie is rated at 3.5/5. It's worth for it. Don't miss it.

*TIPS: Don't leave your seats so soon, there MIGHT be SECRET ENDING at the end*

Inhome Unlimited Entertainment

Again Luckystrike is MIA without any update for a fortnight. Sorry ya readers. Credit to my Final Year Project. Thank god all has come to an end. Just submitted it 2 days ago and now I am a free man. Feel like the movie "The Shawshank Redemption". Haha. Now my movie mode is totally ON~!!!

Entertainment does't necessary have to be outing and spending money. Sometimes, it's the matter on quality of time and who are you going to spend with. The best part of entertainment is I can share it with my beloved one.

As my parents are English-educated, Hollywood movie is always their priority. As for their son, that's also in my blood. That's the common channel that we used to share.

Channel 411 - HBO.

The merrier thing is sometimes the movie in HBO is just in cinema not long ago. It's indeed an inhome cinema especially a town that without cinema. That's what I mean quality time - time I spend with family.

Channel 311 - Wah Lai Toi.

I think Cantonese movies have very big influence in Malaysia. Even some of us might not speak Cantonese fluently, we still can listen and understand what they mean. This also happens to my parents. They like Cantonese series movie. To our astonishment, nowadays they speaks Cantonese to us. But that gives us laughter more than the information that they want to share.

Hua Hee Dai - Channel 333.

Being a Hokkien Lang that most influenced by Penang Hokkien, I am always said to speak non-genuine Hokkien. People from Klang always condemns me that I speak Hokkien campur. It can only be used in the North of Peninsular Malaysia. I think that's quite true. That's why my parents insist me to watch Hua Hee Dai. The movies in that channel use genuinne Hokkien.

Who says that television programme is only for entertainment? It's sometimes meant for education purpose. haha. FML...

ESPN - Channel 812

Most of the people prefer to watch football match in a crowd. That turns out to be different for me. I would prefer laying on my own couch with my favourite snacks and drinks with me. Sometimes, 3 to 4 friends join me would make it better. But still I prefer to watch it at home.

OK. That's my entertainment so far. Maybe now you have some doubts.

"Do you have enough time for this?" "Do you ever fight with family members because of the different movies that you all want to watch?"

The answer is simple.

Thanks to Astro B.yond PVR.
TV. Your time. Your way.

5 years ago, 5 years then

5 years ago, I came to this. I had to make a decision on which path should I continue on my study so as my career. This was what I thought last time. Future career is propotional to the course that I study.

Recently I attended a career fair in my campus. A person from The Star company gave me a test on which career suits me. Guess what I got? I got 2 kind of description: Organisers and Persuaders. These 2 is far far away from the description that I as an Engineering student should have, which is Thinker. However, deep in my heart I know that's how my heart sounds.

The guy asked me in disbelief: "You studying Engineering?"
Me: "Yea."
Him: "What make you choose that course?"

****I was totally blank in few seconds****

I used to get that question in my freshman year. But I am now a final year student and only I realize that how hard is it to answer this question.

I got a deep breath and replied: "Just because I got 'A's for my Physics, Maths and Add Maths in my SPM."

After 5 years, only I have the guts to admit it. Seriously I don't choose it because I really know it. It's just because that's the only one I know. I felt that my choice is restricted. In my time, Sciences students went for Medicine, Dentistry, Engineering while Art students went for Accounting. That's it. Just look at the course offered by the institution. It's a variety~!!!

5 years then and the clock is ticking. There's no time to play the blame game. I am now in the same junction. But now I am different. I make the move. Decide in the things I am interested in and just proceed. Do it or my time will pass. That leads to a conversation between me and my mum.

"Mum, after I graduate, I might not be an engineer. But I promise if I am, I will be the best. If I am not, please dont blame me for spending so much money but end up in zero."

I am glad that my mum node her head after hearing my quote "I have spend more than RM50000 to know that this doen't suit me. I don't wan to spend the rest of my time on it again."

Today I get in touch with a good buddy of mine. She mentions to me regarding her dillema. I have said my words. Hope she will pick a choice of hers and still get the bless from her loved one. I sincerely wish her all the best.

Waiting for the junction...

Trip Advisor???

It should be a break now for students of MMU. A week for students to rejuvenate after half of the semester. Somehow, the final year project really keeps me engaged physically and mentally. I just have to drag myself out of it. That's part of the reasons I was away from the hussle and bussle. Thanks to Sim, the director of Lang Tengah Trip, I was chosen to be part of the family. I would like to apologize to Sim. Before the trip, I was in a real struggle. I was in dillema between FYP and responsible as a trip advisor.

Welcome to Pulau Lang Tengah...

Looking at the blue sky and crystal clear water, I can't stop telling myself "Dude, you have made the right choice." I was totally amazed by the beauty of Mother Nature.

The scenery is totally awesome. Do you notice the layer colours of the sea? I just can't take my eyes of it. I totally forget about my piles of workload that I had left for this trip. I just enjoy from day to night, from night to day. If my bunch of buddies would join it, it's even nice to share the great moment with each other.

Talking about the trip, it's indeed an awesome one. Throughout the trip, some unexpected issues did occur. Somehow the committees did a real good job. As an advisor, I am sorry for my failure of emotional control during the first night. I should express my opinion in a better way.

As a person who had been a director before, I do hope that the person who choose me for the title will give me the trust and confidence to make any decision throughout the trip. So do I hope that will happen to the director of this trip. I understand how much pressure that a director has to bear of compared to the others. While the others are enjoying at the beach, the director may have to stay in a corner just to take care of some ignorant participants.

When the buses reached MMU, I could see the relief on Sim's face. It made me think back two years ago when we reached, I gave all my committees a hug. Sim, no offence ya. Even until now I do think that I have a better comm than many of the trip comms. They are simple the best.

Somehow, nice moments are usually brief. Sunset is my all time favourite. Maybe it's the best part between the brightness and darkness. Just hope to see a nicer one. Recently I can feel that it's time to move on. Redang trip was my first trip. Ice-breaking trip was my first comm trip. I started with Transportation director, followed by Taman Negeri trip as Accommodation director. Leading the whole team as a trip director for the Tioman trip. And this trip as the trip advisor and mostly it will be my last trip. The curtain of mine in Tourism Club is going to close. I think I will miss the event, miss the people.

MMU buddies - The Gang.

Pangkor trip. One of the memorable trip with all the comm.

SG geng in Langkawi.

Dudes that I spend time at the seaside before, will we be spending our time on the beach again? Or our last trip had marked the end of it? I do miss these moments.

Mystery Symbol

Looking at the photo above, I just can't stop my memory flowing back to the past. It has been 2 years. Yeah. It might be just a short period but things change in these 2 years. Later I am going for a trip organized by Tourism Club. It might be my last trip with this group of family. This time, I am going to join without most of my friends. Somehow, I think that it will be a good half time rest for me. A good rest is meant for a longer journey. I seriously need it much after engaging in my Final Year Project since the beginning of the semester. Just enjoy myself~!!!


Do you all sensitive with the SYMBOLS around? I mean unique one. Look at the picture below.

Do you notice the symbol between the tips of the twin giants?

I have totally no idea what's that? Am I the only one that come across this? Is this just in my nation or anywhere else? I tried to find it out. Look what I found.

Recently there's a lot of movie about alien invasion? Does it mean that it's true? Would World Invasion: Battle of Malaysia is going to be true? There are thousands of why to be answered. Do any one of you seen this and wonder the same thing as I do?

How's life so far with Astro PVR.

It's been one month Atro PVR is been with my family. Now it's the apple of every members of my family.

So why do I say so?

Everyday, we can't resist not to TOUCH it. When it comes to weekend, it's even the whole day. During weekend, we tend to wake up early nowadays. Who is the first that get the remote control will rules the day.
Sometimes, we just get to see it LIVE. No matter football match or any award-giving ceremony, we get the first information about it.

But you might ask "What's the different with the common Astro service?"

Then you really have to try it to know about it. That's what I experience so far.
  1. I am always the late bug in my family. That's why every weekend I seldom be the person who gets the remote control. Somehow, our quarrels are getting less. We don't fight because of movie programme anymore. What I need to do is just ask my brother's favour to RECORD it. Then I will PLAY when everyone goes to bed.
  2. My mum likes to lecture us if we keep ourselves engaged in front of TV for a long time. It's funny when she says "You all don't want to rest also please let Astro PVR rest la. Later I want to watch la." We just burst into laughter.
  3. My mum again. She doesn't like to join us for dinner outside. She always blames us as we always take a long time outside and she will miss the front part of her favourite series. But now, she is the one that drags us to shopping mall after dinner.
  4. We love it when we can REPLAY all those fantastic goals any time when we feel like watching. My bro is the Manchester United fans. Just imagine how many times he REPLAYs the bicycle kick by Rooney and keeps on talking about it.
  5. Thanks to Astro PVR that we spend more time on the couch together. A greater bond among my family members.

Astro PVR is really part of my family now.
