The Dark Knight

This movie is another big summer movie which everyone is waiting for especially after Heath Ledger aka The Joker died after he was done filming the movie.

This movie totally blew me away, other than Ironman. From the start until the end everyone on the movie really did a job in the movie. The story line is simple, got 2 baddies, Two Face and The Joker. Well me not being a comic fan, I got to know that Two Face is actually a good guy turned into a bad guy. This is actually a Joker movie rather than Batman movie as he totally shadowed everyone in this show. I dun really like how the movie end though, too bad for Two Face. I would loved to see more of him.

One thing I dun really like is why does batman got to speak in such a deep husky voice. Hee.... Overall, I give this movie 4.5 stars out of 5. The lack of 0.5 stars is for the reason they killed Two-face. Hee...

I managed to watch this movie again in IMAX. Even though watching it second time, it just toally blew me off with the large screen. How come Singapore dun show the movie in IMAX version?

Mega Combat and Gym Politics

Last sat was PF's Mega Combat. Well only managed to attend half of it since we got to get ready for Gary Cao's concert after it. Hee... This is my second year doing it. I do not know why but I do not enjoyed doing it. Just find it boring doing it. Do not think I will be doing it next year. Cannot imagine the queue for the distribution of the T-shirt. OMG! People are really so kaisu leh. Still managed to got mine, when there is no queue.

One thing in gym, when I go attend the classes, I would prefer to go for the classes which are taught by the instructors I prefer but I do not go to extreme where I would check everyday if that instructor will not be teaching that day class due to something. I will still attend the class.

There are also groups of ppl who will only attend the instructors they attend and become like groupies. these are the people usually standing in the front and would have stay back to talk to the instructors. Of course they had big influence as they usually will be the ones to request for tracks in classes. Of course there will be different groups for the same instructors and each group will try to do their best to get the instructor's attention like helping them to set up, keep the equipment. There are even people who will go to different gyms in a day to attend the classes conducted by the same instructors. Even at Mega Combat, the whole gang would have stand in front of the platform where that particular instructor is standing. OMG!

Recently heard that one of the trainee instructors, gena complained by one of the lao jiaos during the class. So the poor trainee do not even have the chance to cover the class now and at the same time she also did not attend that particular instructor class any more. Poor thing. Well wish her all the best!

I just go gym so that I can work out at the same time to relief some stress. I do not go gym to add more stress to my life! I also got enough politics to handle in office already. I do not need any more at the gym.

To those people, please get a life outside gym.

Today watched this play cum magic show, locally produced. The magicians is a pair of Father and Daughter.

The story line predictable, father do not allow children to have magic act of their own as he think they are not ready enough and in the end all got magic act of their own but to find family is the best.

The acting was flat so was the storyline but the magic is the main star. Totally blew me away. There are a lot of different magic acts in the show and they are all very good. Even I was seating in the front seats, it was difficult to see how the magic acts are being done. They are that good. Hee...

All thanks to LLT, I managed to have the chance to watch this show.

Gary Cao's Concert

I did have the intend to watch this concert when I knew it was coming to town. However since no one want to watch it with me, I decided to give it a miss. It was a KTV session in the afternoon of the day of the concert, sort of spurred up my interest to watch the concert again. Another reason is because he won the Best Male Vocalist just last weekend as well.

As luck to be on my side, I managed to get a pair of free tickets to watch from Hazel. Hee... So excited over it. So much so that we even decided to leave halfway through Mega Combat. Haa...

The turnout of the concert was ard 80%, quite good and did not expect so many people to turn up and support him. After watching the concert, I have to say that Gary Cao is really a very good singer, just like how he sounds in the CD. I find the program of the concert a bit boring and was not well thought through as well. That was quite a disappointment. He could have sang more songs from his 3 albums as well. Well I only can say his voice and wit was the saving grace of the concert. I was happy that I got free tickets to watch it instead me what I had planned to buy tickets for it. Hee...

Hellboy II: The Golden Army, You Don't Mess With the Zohan

You Don't Mess With the Zohan

From the trailer, I already can forsee this will be one of the lame movies. As it seems that it is really one, from the lame plot. I am quite surprised that they decided to make a lame movie from the terroristy point of view, one of the best agent who wants to be a hairstylist. So to make his dream come true, he decided to play dead during a mission and went to US for a new life. Then he became one of the most popular hairstylist who attracted all the old ladies as other than haircut and washing, he provides hot sex as well. As the story line get more far fetch, the jokes gets lamer.Overall, I give this movie 1 star out of 5. Watch it if you are looking for a brainless show.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army

This movie is one of the sequels and one of the many comic characters movies that popped up recently. I am not a big fan of the comics, in fact I seldom read comics at all. Well with not much of recollection of what happen to the first movie. I pretty much enjoyed the second one. Hee... the plot was pretty simple, good guys fight bad guys but human do not like good guys and ask for the good guys to be destroyed. The CGI of this movie was really good.Overall, I give this movie 3 stars out of 5.

News Flash! Earthquake rocks Metro Manila!

"A magnitude 3 earthquake rocked Metro Manila at 8:01 last night, the Philippine Volcanology and Seismology Institute said. The quake was felt at Magnitude 4.5 in Nueva Ecija, Aurora and Bulacan."

Read this in the Manila newspapers this morning. OMG! I landed yesterday night and I did not felt it at all. Hmm... So what I was doing at that time? I was having dinner. Hmm... Maybe it was not strong enough to be felt.

Well you can experience typhoon and earthquake in Manila, I was lucky enough to fly out before the last typhoon landed. This time got earthquake I also did not feel anything as well.

Hee.. So I better start thinking what I should do when an earthquake happens.

Anyone knows how?

KrisFlyer Elite Silver

After 2 months of almost non stop flying in and out every week, I am proud to say that I am now KrisFlyer Elite Silver member. Haha... Not much privileges though. Sigh.

Time to aim for the next milestone: KrisFlyer Elite Gold status! I need to clock another 50,000 elite miles. OMG! That is a lot of miles to clock in a year! Haha... In this case, I really need to take more plane rides than bus rides already.

Oh yes, another thing, finally after 2 months, SQ decided to change their food menu! This came in timely when I got sick of the food on the plane.
