27th December 2009, the day I'll never forget.

Actually, this is nothing more than a random post per se, rather I just think that there was something "special" about yesterday. Well I don't know how to describe what was so special about yesterday or if there is any relevance to my life or anything, just thought I could make a few more blog posts before the new year!!!

So what was so special about the 27th of December you ask? Well apart from getting my car mirror scratched (well, it was worse today when I scratched my front left bumper zzzzz....) when I was going to go pick up my cousin from his house, going to Summit with my cousin so that he could buy some gifts for his friend, spending the whole day doing useless stuff, the fact that ME AND MY FATHERS CAR GOT ROBBED INSIDE OUR HOUSE (nah seriously, nothing of importance was lost there) but the fact that...... well, lets just say something much more personal has happened.

It happened the day before, when I was online and doing my usual things as usual when suddenly my friend invited me to a conversation on MSN. I was introduced to a friend of a friend in that conversation. At that time I really had no idea who it was, what was going on, or why I was invited to the conversation in the first place. Anyhow, as the conversation went along I soon found out who this person I'm chatting with (along with my other friends as well) was a Korean girl!!! Well I did know about her a few months ago when my friend told me about her, but I never expected to be talking to her on MSN at all. So errr.... why was it surprising then? Well maybe for one, it was a Korean who I was speaking to although my friend said she has been living in Malaysia for about 6 months and some other facts that I forgotten about lol.

So anyway, the longer we talked to each other the more I started to become attracted to her. I was lovestruck for gods sake!!! I don't know what was happening inside me or what my mind was thinking, but it was just that sudden that I started to have "feelings" for her. I don't know, maybe I was just crazy and it was all a dream. Then suddenly it was yesterday that we starting to talk to each other, and somehow it was just the 2 of us! Although I guess I have been warned by my friend that she does like to post random things and talked a lot, but wow, I never expected to have some sort of "deep" conversations with her. Even with my cousin disturbing our conversation most of the time, we did talk to each other quite a lot albeit, it was not a long continuous conversation and we only post random things to each other. But I don't know what to say about it really, deep deep down I just had that gut feeling about something. I could go on forever about this, but I guess my mind has made up and I'll just leave it as it is for now.

I just wish I could see her face or even have a long and deep conversation on the phone (she did kindly give me her number!) just to hear her sweet voice or maybe even try to meet her somewhere and meet her face to face. She did seem like a nice person to be with, and I bet I could (probably) get along with her or something. Okay okay, maybe it was a dream and that I never realized how real a dream can be, but then again.... maybe it wasn't a dream after all? Even though I'm not that good at all with talking to women or even know how to appreciate "love" or any sort of rubbish that is that, but she did said one thing that kinda make me want to change myself just for her. That is to start trying talking to girls more often and have feelings for them, which I'm gonna make it one of my new years resolution in 2010 probably hehe.....

I feel so nervous, confused, embarrassed, I mean I just can't describe how sick my feelings are right now. Maybe my emotions has gone haywire, maybe I'm starting to lose my sanity, maybe I'm going to be a man, oh I just don't f***ing know what I feel like!!! Its like I'm just lying to myself for doing this, and yet...... and yet...... argh!!!! I don't even know myself now honestly with what I want, what my feeling want, what my mind want and what my soul wants. Its all just so damn wrong with me, and nothing just make sense now. I just wish somebody could answer me, or even better, if SHE could answer me and set me out straight. Maybe it was all just some sort of misunderstanding. Please, I just need an answer from somebody, that is all....

Okay now..... with that said though, I guess this will probably one of my last post on this blog for 2009. I do wish I could post some stuff some more, but that depends if I can get some sort of internet connection at my hotel in Johor Bahru when I'm going there tomorrow. We'll see, if there is then maybe I can post some things more over there and maybe even do some sort of recap of my life in 2009. Haha, well take care everyone and have a Happy New Year!!!


Well lets clear this up a bit. I know most people might mistake this as Avatar: The Last Airbender, but the fact is that this is a James Cameron directed movie which of course is titled Avatar. At first I thought it would be just some sort of sci-fi movie which I couldn't care less about, but after watching it through I already have second thoughts about whether should I go watch this again (in 3D perhaps?) or not, hahahaha. I tell ya, if any of James Cameron's past films are to go by *cough*Titanic*cough* then he surely has struck gold yet again.....

I seriously cannot believe how perfect this movie is, from the simple and yet meaningful plots and storyline, the characters, the special effects, almost everything was absolutely perfect. I don't think there were anything wrong with this film at all! (apart from the sound loss at the beginning of the movie, but I blame the cinema for that) If the reviews and box office earning is anything to go by, then it surely is a must-see movie for sure. Just take my word for it, go buy a ticket and sit and watch the magic happen right before your very eyes.

I'm not gonna post anything much about the movie or the characters much here, just because the movie is just too perfect for me to say anything lol. Just look up at the link above for a better plot summary and whatnot, I'm just too lazy to right here haha. But anyway, just want to point out that the casting was pretty good and all of them did a splendid job portraying their characters in the film. Another thing to note is that the 3D animation and camera effects they used for this film was just jaw dropping amazing. It makes all the other movies look plain and dull in comparison.

Okay now, after thinking it over I really shouldn't have posted this review because writing about it just doesn't do the film justice. Not saying I'm overhyping Avatar or anything but I just can't tell you people how good this film really is, no words can express how worthwhile it was watching. As I said before and I'll say it again, you just have to go watch it believe me. Even though I'm not that much of a sci-fi movie fan, but this was just something else. So how do you think I'll rate this film then? Overall I just have to give it a 9/10 rating just because its perfect. It couldn't get a 10 because that would just be unfair to all the other greater movies out there, hahahahaha....

Yeah yeah, this has got to be one of the lamest movie reviews ever on my blog eh? Well I really couldn't care less about it either lol. I'm just posting this just to amuse myself. Its not like anyone is gonna read it right? Right? RIGHT!!!?

*hear the sounds of crickets chirping*

Okay, never mind. Forget about it, just go watch this okay?

Merii Kurisumasu!!!

Well if posting on posting Twitter wasn't enough, I decided to post it here as well just for the sake of it. Wishing all my friends who celebrate Christmas today to have a good time with your relatives, friends, whatever. Enjoy this day everyone as 2009 is coming to a close, 2010 is just around the corner and I'm sure everyone has got their plans for next year.

As for me, I don't celebrate Christmas or give a s*** about 2010. All I know is I'm gonna watch Avatar later today with my father, and a few days later I'm going to Johor and spend most of my time in Singapore. What else is there for me to do? Play video games? Watch anime? Loaf around? LOL, doesn't matter though. Will think of something somehow in some way or some other.....

Oh, and an accompanying Christmas song courtesy of Shingo DJ:

I Dont Care If It's The Moon, We Went...

Song by Cherry Bing (even though most people think it was from Cute Is What We Aim For since both bands had the same vocalists) Well enough about the bands though, it is the song that I want to post here. I swear this song is a disease, cause I just got infected by it!

Been listening to this song all day, for a good 10, 20, 30, even about 40 times repeatedly non-stop! (okay, maybe not that much but I swear I've been listening to this song a lot!) Vocals might suck a lot, lyrics might be stupid, and the music could be better but for some reason I just liked it! Maybe it was just the chorus that got me hooked.

It's not enough, it's not enough, it's not enough, it's not enough.....

Queen's Blade: Rurō no Senshi

Okay, getting a few hours sleep after watching Queen's Blade: Rurō no Senshi back-to-back for about 6 hours I'm sure I still have the show fresh on my mind. Well, apart from everything erotic about Queen's Blade it was really really enjoyable to watch. Lots of drama, lots of actions, lots of *cough* *choke* okay okay... lets not go there just yet. Seriously though, it was really "interesting" to say the least.....

So what is Queen's Blade about then? Well if anyone wondered it is basically just about beautiful (and strong of course) women fighting against each other to become the "Queen" and have to power and wealth to control the continent (or something like that, I'm not sure) yada yada yada, I still don't get the story much though haha. You can read the plot here if you still want to. Also note that this anime was actually based on a gamebook of the same name, and has even also produced a video game called Queen's Blade: Spiral Chaos for the PSP. Enough about that though, what's so great about it then?

Well I really can't put my finger of it, whether its the storyline, (which is good I might add, but I'm not gonna say anything about it here) the battle scene, or the fact that this show has ∞ times more fan service then even Gonzo's loli pantsu mecha anime Strike Witches!!! Holy crap, that must have been something.... but like what exactly? Well, for starters all the characters in this anime are ALL SEXUALLY DRESSED one way or another. Second of all, I think almost 90% of the entire series contains "explicit" scenes regardless if it is relevant to the story or not. But I guess it just wouldn't be Queen's Blade without the characters clothing shred into pieces and leaving them "almost" naked! (and when I mean almost, I meant completely naked without the crotch showing hahahaha)

Yeah, definitely not for the kids or even early teenagers. This is for *ahem*, adults so to speak but who cares about that. If you want to watch it and even want to.... err.... you know, do that thing while watching it then go ahead. Its not like your gonna watch this in front of your parents, relatives, friends or anything right? (you must be screwed up if you watching this with everyone lol) Gotta give credit to Satoshi Urushihara for doing some of the key animations. If you ever watched any of his previous work then you will know what I mean.....

Anyway, if anyone read my tweets (or known about it from somewhere else) then you will certainly know there is a 2nd season which is already almost complete (I think, only got 1 episode left as of now) which hopefully, I will try watching it after new year (and when I come back home from Johor for my holidays) and will try to write a better summary than this. Trust me, this is worth watching if you liked ecchi, yuri, or you know, that kind of things lol. This is about it I guess, if anything I will try to explain a little more on this on the 2nd season of Queen's Blade.

Edit: I wanted to post this earlier this morning (after I had to wake up early to help my father with something) but couldn't because my internet started f*cking up for no good reason, and when the line was stable again I had to leave and help my mom run some errands. Yeah haha, so be it...

Hella Slammed Miata

Daaaayuuuuuummmmm.... just look at that thing! Not only am I lost for words, made my jaw dropped on the floor with drools splattered all over, made me jizzed in my pants and made me shat bricks, or even the fact that I could have just imploded into a gazillion pieces looking at this masterpiece. Honestly though, Linhbergh sure know how to work his magic around cars.....

Comiket 77

So errr..... the Comiket (or Comic Market) is upon us yet again for what is like one of the most chaotic otaku convention in the world!!! Also known as the "winter comiket" for obvious reasons, there will be as usual a wide array of merchandise from doujin manga, music, and well, many other stuff I guess lol. But just like my previous Comiket post, I'll just be covering the music part of the event mostly being albums which I'm looking forward to being released. =)

Note: Some of the albums have little information on them, so I'll try to update this posts if any new info gets through.

[TCPLUS-0005] HARDCORE TANO*C - Speed Ball Z
Should be something similar to SpeedBall if the title is anything to go by. Quite liked that album a lot, as almost all the songs are high bpm and tempo. J-speedocre at its best!

[MSTBL0020] Mob Squad Tokyo Black Label – J-Core Masterz Vol. 6
A continuation of the J-Core Masterz series of albums. Pretty self explanatory there...

[MSTBL0019] Mob Squad Tokyo Black Label – Fuck DJ Paper Chaos EP
After the fiasco that happened on J-Core Masterz Vol.5 regarding DJ Paper Chaos, the Mob Squad Crew thought it was a great idea to make songs based on him, and so the EP was born. Not so sure what the songs will be about, but one things for sure, its all gonna be about DJ Paper Chaos! F*** DJ PAPER CHAOS!!!! (in a certain Argentinian accent lol)

[MPTCD010] MPT – Bastard Pop Terrorists Vol.10
Same with J-Core Masterz, this is another series of the Bastard Pop Terrorists albums. A welcome surprise is Shingo DJ will make his first appearance on this album, as well as a certain new artist (well not really new if you know who it was) named SMASHCORE making a debut in the album. Should be something worthwhile listening to both of them...

Oh.... my..... gawd!!!! A DJ A.Q. compilation!!!? YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...... I'm just lost for words, thoughts and whatnot lol. I just love Aura Qualic, such a talented artist and also a all around good person. If I could get my hands on this, I would buy it without thinking twice!!!

[SHOT-002] Shot Music – FORTUNE ARTERIAL-Omnibus Edit-『P-O-P』
After listening to Shot Music's first release, Super Shot, I thought this was worth a mentioned. As the title suggest, it will mostly be a Fortune Arterial arranged album so I do not know much how the album is gonna be like. Hopefully it will be good lol...

[SRPC-0025] SharpnelSound Collection -弐-
DJ Sharpnel's compilation of songs. *yawn*

[AECD-020] ALiCE'S EMOTiON – Sphere Calibar
REDLiCE? Touhou remixes? You bet!

[CHS-0006] t+pazolite – Gotta Maze 2
If you love t+pazolite, then you will love this. No happy hardcore or Touhou stuff here, its all t+paz speedstyle!!! Definitely worth the wait IMO...

[IBCD-0011] VA – Hydrangea
Another Touhou album, but doesn't suck as much as REDALiCE's though haha. Tsukasa has always made good music, doesn't matter if he mostly does release Touhou arranged albums. I just liked listening to his albums haha...

[TDCD001] Betwixt & Between – Pure Existence
OMG B&B has made an album? Haha this is just gonna be epic. If anyone has listened to his songs (especially when he was with Hase on Khaotic Dimention) you would just be blown away by his songs. Its not your average J-Core song either.... sadly though, there is not much information on the album or what songs might appear on the album. Just listen to the demo on the link if you want to know how epic this album will be...

Well I do apologize if the post seems a little long and random or that I missed several other key releases here, but being very tired and trying to type in the middle of the night doesn't help me out much either haha. If anything, just click the link below for more key releases coming from C77:

Thats about it from me for now, will try to update the list again if there is any new info. (well, that is if I could remember that is haha!)

For lack of a better..... updates!

Yes, yet another "random thoughts" post. Don't think I really have anything much to post nowadays, except maybe just telling you guys how boring my normal life actually is. Eat, sleep, video games, online, bathe, and err.... that is about it I guess lol. So like, what is it about now this time around? My friends did expected me to post something here regarding about today and well, some random s*** I guess haha.....

So yeah, about today that. Nothing much really, just went to Ulu Yam earlier this morning with some friends, and went to a waterfall and stuff. Didn't do much over there other than...... doing exactly nothing! Seriously, I didn't even knew they wanted to go to the waterfalls over there and I just got a call this morning from one of my friends this morning (while I was still asleep at that!) telling me they wanted to go there. Sheesh, talk about being unprepared lol. (actually, they did told me about it yesterday, but I never thought they would take the idea that seriously) But with that aside, don't think there was anything spectacular or good happened to me over the past week. Nope, no sirree.....

Then, what video game am I playing now? Well after I finished playing ProStreet just a week ago, I tried playing Forza 3 yet again but I stopped playing it after I got bored playing it. Currently I just started year 3 in Season Play mode, and I think my current XP is at level 30 something. So what game did I play then? After thinking about it, I finally went with Need for Speed: Shift since well, NFS games doesn't take that long to finish! As of today I already got enough points to play the NFS World Tour, and my driver level is at 25. Even with that though, there is still tons of races I still haven't done yet, as well as the achievements I need to get within the game. Should be able to finish it earliest by next week, that is if I don't have any distractions do deal with.

Anyway, I will post some more things soon once I finished playing NFS Shift or when I'm done dealing with whatever I have to deal with. Might start watching anime again by next week, as well as posting some stuff up regarding the upcoming Comiket event! =D

Life is full of surprises...

...and today was just that! After getting a message from my college yesterday regarding meeting somebody about something (which I have no idea what it is or who else received the same message)and it also said it was urgent! So earlier today I did ask a few of my classmates regarding the message that we received and found out that only my friends who was taking DMS (Diploma in Motor Sports) that has received the same message. So what is this all about anyway? It was sure quite weird and maybe even random getting a message like this lol...

Anyway, during my break time at college (well actually it was after my practical exam, but whatever) I went to the student center to find out what was this "urgent meeting was all about". So like....... after meeting the person and finished explaining the situation to everyone at the student center and explained some more about the situation in more detail individually, I was quite surprised at what I've just heard with my own two ears. I GOT An EARLY HOLIDAY!!!! Bloody hell, that was so totally out of the blue lol. I mean I knew there was supposed to be another week of class next week before my holiday was supposed to start, but getting the holiday a week earlier was just splendid. Not only do I have a break earlier, but I get to go back to college a little later as well! (which is from 14th December 2009 till 15 January 2010) Seriously, I mean WTF?

Haha yeah, I should be really be overjoyed and ecstatic about that (seriously, who doesn't like holidays?) but I just can't help wonder why it took them so long to actually tell us about this. Well its not really about the holiday that they were telling us about, but rather, our courses (as in the DMS students) got mixed up with the students that are taking the other courses (which is DAT, or Diploma in Automotive Technology) getting mixed up. Mind you, there were more students taking the DAT course than the one that I'm taking and they had to remove the DMS students from the DAT classes because of this. A lot of confusion did go on, with the timetable change earlier this semester from 2 weeks per subjects to 3 weeks, as well as more students to deal with (there were 3 new batch after I joined this year) so I really can't say much about that. Just hope that they could settle everything out by next year, and that we could continue our studies without having all these things to worry about.

With college aside and now that this is the start of my holiday I guess I could get back to my usual routine now haha. Probably have more time to watch anime and play video games and maybe do something else such as hanging out with my friends more often, as well as *maybe* going on a holiday. So yeah, kind of a happy way to end the year and a good way to calm all my uncertainties and doubts regarding my stressed up life. 2010 may be around the corner but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy 2009 any more..... =D

Heh, I was supposed to post this up earlier in the afternoon but my video gaming session got caught up, so much so that I got stressed up about it when my friend called me haha. Just look up at my twitter status if you wondered how stress I was playing NFS ProStreet, (yeah, an old game) trying to beat Ryo Watanabe in the Speed Challenge race. Haha, I did manage to finish the game and now I still have no idea what game to play next. Well whatever game I play will mean that I will be spending less time in front of the computer, which means I'll probably won't chat with people or update my blog much, haha....


Hey what up people? I know I haven't updated my blog much as before and this is because I'm just having too much fun playing video games lately hahahaha!!! Currently been busy playing Need For Speed: ProStreet after finished playing DiRT 2 about a week ago, and I think I could finish this game by the end of the week if I'm not occupied doing anything else...

Anyway, I really don't have much to say about this month or anything lol. Its just the same old damn routine for me; college, go online, play video games, and just about the usual basic stuff everyone always do (eat, sleep, etc.) Yeah, a little bit boring eh? Doesn't matter though, its not like I have any other life besides this or anything important to do haha. So then, wanna know what new music I listen to now? Erm..... well I still do listen to J-Core quite a lot but I did open up my music vocabulary yet again and now I do enjoy listening to J-Pop, K-Pop, Schranz and more recently listening to House (more specifically, Deadmau5). If you guys want to know more about what music I'm listening to nowadays (or just see how many songs I listen to) you can check out my Last.FM profile at the sidebar here in my blog. =)

Oh yeah, another important thing I need to say is I might be going to Singapore during my 2 week break near the end of the year with my family. Haha, not really sure what else is there to do but go to Orchard Road and just "shop till you drop"! Heh, I'm usually not that much into shopping (since I'm not working and have little to no money at all) but I do want to go to HMV if I could pick up some music CDs that I will just never get it here in Malaysia. Other than that I might just try and see what other stuff I could actually buy with the limited money I have. Other than shopping I really have no idea what else to do. Go to Vivo City? (really haven't been there at all) Or go to Sentosa Island? (heard they opened a Disney theme park or something there) Meh, well that is up to my family to decide but whatever.....

That is about it from me I guess, don't think I have anything else to say as of now. Knowing that this is the holiday season almost everywhere all I can say now is have fun and take care. Just enjoy the winter (or well, monsoon season in my case) or whatever the weather may be and just take it the moment cause before you know it its past New Year and everyone have to get back to their daily routines yet again, be it school, college, work or even hikikomori!

Also, did anyone wondered what the title is about? Well if anyone who follows mainsteam music quite a bit would probably know it was the album title taken from AFI's seventh album, Decemberunderground. I have listen to their songs before, but I just never bother listening to them lol. I have their albums inside my hard drive for the past year and still haven't put it inside my iTunes yet ahahaha. Well maybe I should, they are not quite that bad to listen to be honest.

HellaFlush III

Sorry for not posting much this month, just haven't really had much things to blog about lol. Practically been occupied playing DiRT 2 over these past few weeks and couldn't care less about anything else lol! HellaFlush III might have been over a few weeks ago but this video was just released a few days ago and I just couldn't help but post it...

Basically the video was just a summary of the whole HellaFlush III event and I got to say the whole video was excellently done!!! The music accompanying the video is pretty fitting with the theme as well. With that said though, I do wish I could be there and enjoy the atmosphere but then again the grass is ALWAYS GREENER on the other side. *sigh*

Anyway, if you like what you see here then be sure to check out these links below for more HellaFlush III coverage:
Wrong Fitment Crew
(I'm sure there is probably more, but I think this should be good enough!)

New Glasses (again)

Okay, the fact that that this is my sixth/seventh glasses in the past few years since I started wearing them really shows what a careless person I am. My last pair of glasses apparently snapped when I tried cleaning it a few days ago and when I told my father about it he insisted on getting a new one. Damn, should have just kept quite instead if I had known what would happen next...

Anyway, so yesterday I went to the same shop that I usually go where to get my glasses and well I just expected to get a new frame which would fit my old lenses. Then suddenly they asked me to check the power of my eyes and realized my power increased a lot on my right eye! F***, and what at first was just to get a new frame for my old lenses became getting a new frame and lenses! Dammit, that wasn't in the script at all I tell ya. So yeah, fast forward to today and I got my new glasses with the specified lenses. Not too sure if I should be happy, thankful or just a pissy f*ck (haha, I just made that word up yesterday!) but yeah, whatever I guess.....

Here is another view of my glasses, looks quite okay though and don't think there is much to complain about. As you could already tell on the first photo, the brand of the frame is Evisu and along with the lenses it could about RM500 *gasp*.

Meh, I told my father to get me cheaper ones (since eventually I will break them as always) but he was just plain stubborn and wanted to get me these. Again, I couldn't care less anyhow, he was the one paying for it! Errr.... guess there is not much to say other than "thanks dad" now huh? Yeah..... thanks dad. =)

Strike Witches

Oh my god, I'm so in love with Strike Witches right now!!! Nah, more like "Pantsu Witches" if you have actually watched the DVD version of this anime like I did lol. (more on this later) After almost 2 months since I last watch some anime (well, Gurren Lagann to be exact) I guess I'm glad that I managed to squeeze some time to watch this one, as I've been too busy playing my XBOX 360 during this 1-week semester break which sadly is gonna be over soon..... =(

Anyway, after watching this anime from about 10pm yesterday until about 4am this morning I do feel a little tired and sleepy lol. Well with each episode being 25 minutes long (as a typical series anime would be) and there being 12 episodes plus the fact that I'm watching this late at night/early morning (for obvious reasons) I guess I was kinda asking for it lol. Okay okay, enough about that crap though and lets talk about Strike Witches! So like, what is Strike Witches all about then? To put it simply, its about cute, under-aged girls loli err.... witches who have magical powers (obviously!) and have this propeller like things attached to their legs so that they could fly and annihilate their enemies which are terrorizing their countries.

If that didn't make sense, try reading the wiki link above or read this for better clarification. With that done though, lets now talk about the characters, and the one that I probably like is....... ermm....... ahhhh....... ehhhh.... oh fine, its Yoshika Miyafuji that I liked the most! There I said it! She is kawaii, moe, kire, *insert random words that describes a girl* and so on. I don't really know about the other characters (I mean each of the characters do have their own charms) but I just like her the most! Oh yeah, and about why was it called "Pantsu Witches" again? Well if there is one thing I noticed is that all the witches it this anime all wear pantsu!!! (oh, if you don't know what that is go look it up on Google) They don't wear pants, skirts, or even stockings for that matter, and I think the fact that the DVD has much more fan service than even the broadcast version really shows how desperate Gonzo was trying to get viewers to support their company. But then again, most Japanese anime studios are like that...... *cough*KyoAni*cough*

Seriously, if it wasn't for the characters or even the fan service I didn't think the series would do as well as it does now. Sure the story itself was a little bit interesting, but other that it could have just been yet another mecha anime lol. Okay, maybe my point of view cannot justify anything about how good this anime was but if the popularity of this anime anything to go by (with a second season coming in the near future) then it just shows it is that good. (heck, it got even got a recommendation by The Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs! How many anime do you think actually have achieved that!!?

All in all, what is my final verdict on Strike Witches? GO WATCH IT PLEASE!!!! If you are a fan of....... ah scrap that, just go watch it I'm telling you! Whether you like it or not that is up to you and if you don't like it, erm...... yeah, I guess you just don't like it then! Hahahaha.....

BTW, if anyone is interested in the picture above you can get the full size of it here:

(p.s. I apologize if my review is a little bs'ed, I can't think straight at the moment! XD )

ﻣﺎﻭﻧﺘﻦ ﺩﻴﻮ

Or as they would say it in English, Mountain Dew. Got this from a friend last weekend when he came back to Subang with a box load of this. Damn what he said was right though, this stuff is really really addictive!!! O_O

Now if only I could get him to import a certain Turkish soft drink into Malaysia as well...


The most overrated movie of the year? To put it bluntly, yes. I don't get why this film was sold out for the first few days and even till today there are still people queuing up to buy tickets just to watch 2012. I mean seriously, I went to the theater yesterday and queued up for half an hour just to buy a ticket for today! (cause yesterday believe it or not, all the seats were sold out!) Before watching it I thought the movie would be quite good or decent, boy oh boy how wrong it was...

I might not write a full summary of the film or highlight anything much from the movie, but I just want to point out some things which I found quite disappointing about the entire movie. But first, what is the movie is all about? Well..... basically the movie is just based upon the 2012 phenomenon that the Maya civilization predicted in their calendar. (not that anyone cares or anything right?) So according to that calendar, in the year 2012 a natural disaster happened and the world is gonna end, the apocalypse has come, bla bla bla yada yada yada. Just means that everyone is gonna die and only a few would be able to survive. Pretty lame and boring huh? Anyway, besides the obvious plot and little to no facts actually being proven in the movie another disappointing thing I found while watching was that all the characters are mostly irrelevant to story (if you did watch it you would understand) and how they portray the main character was being portrayed is extremely disappointing. They could have worked on at least getting some facts into the movie instead of just throwing CG's here and there to make it interesting.

Regarding the characters, the main character (John Cusack as Jackson Curtis) have an immense amount of luck, defying odds and beliefs to survive the whole ordeal with his family (oops, did I mentioned spoilers?) and somehow all the people who help him with his plan all died, wtf!!!? Other than that, some characters do seem out of place at times and during those disaster moments why is it only the focused characters managed to escape and all the other people succumb to the disaster and die? Oh for god sake, does it have to be that cliched? Maybe the only good thing I could say about the movie is that the CG is definitely awesome. Although it was overdone at some parts (okay, maybe the whole movie was overdone with CG, but then again it just wouldn't be a disaster movie now does it?) I think it was quite okay to say the least. Other than that though, I don't think I have much to say about this movie.

The first 15-20 minutes were good with some some actual story and plot being told regarding about the disaster that is going to happen, but after that it was just CG's and seeing the main characters running for their lives and avoid being crushed or escaping death in the most extreme manner. Overall, I thought the movie was just plain horrible and pointless. Even until now I don't get what is so good about the movie, even if people actually told me why it is so good. Why do people still bother to watch this? I have no idea.... I think The Day After Tomorrow was better than this, even though none of this movie are actually make sense. (I mean, will these things actually happen?) Whatever the case it may be, don't bother watching it at all unless you have time and money to waste or simply just a fan of science fiction stuff and overly done CGs.

So with that all said, I don't think I could give much for this movie. Does 6/10 sound fair enough? Or would 5/10 would be more appropriate? Seriously though, I don't care. I could give it a 4/10 and still say this movie just sucked horribly lol.....

Teh L337BOX

Should have posted this a little sooner, but I just had TOO MUCH FUN playing Forza 3!!! Anyway, will just leave you more pictures of my "L337BOX" roflmao....

So why I call it L337BOX anyhow? Well I don't really know actually. Saying that I have a Microsoft XBOX 360 Elite is pretty lame, dull and boring so I thought that name was kinda more fitting! XD

Difference between a normal 360 and the Elite:

Here is a photo of everything out of the box:

With all the plastic wrapping taken off:

Doesn't it look nice?

What the L337BOX looks like beside my farking old and trusted PS2. Yeah, kinda looks like crap now after years of abuse. Also notice how much bigger these newer consoles are compared to their older counterparts?

Well that is about it I guess. Now to continue back playing Forza 3 and then maybe try playing Skate 2 afterward...

Sneak Preview: L337BOX

The wait is over. Finally I have a next-gen console!!! I might be late compared to other people, but then again its better late than never eh? Will do the unboxing and full write up tomorrow after I come back to college. Why? Cause I have damn freaking "Technical English" exam tomorrow morning and I have to study for it tonight (really?) and hopefully not f**k up during the exam.

To be honest, I actually do feel like opening and playing it right now though, hahahahaha...

HellaFlush Awesomeness!!!

Just had to post this ever since I first saw it on Speedhunters a few days ago. (could have posted this a few days ago but only now I had the time to blog lol) Anyway, this is has got to be on of the coolest feature months on Speedhunters ever!!! Amazing cars, amazing stance, amazing...... everything! Trust me, once you finished viewing all the cars and events features by the end of the months you will never look at your car the same again.....

*sigh* If only more Malaysians could understand how to do a "proper" fitment and stance on their cars instead of the usual "ricer" look of the 90's that has been come and gone everywhere else in the world. Be creative people!!! I know I could have done my car proper "IF" I had the money (and of course, people who can understand me!) to actually do it! Yeah, all I have now is just a dream and video games to make it real. Haha, sad isn't it?

To know more about what its all about, just go visit the link below to find out:
Slammed Month on Speedhunters

Season Finale at Abu Dhabi

What a way to end the Formula One season ain't it? Under the floodlights in the night race in the overly sophisticated and modern Yas Marina Circuit it is definitely something else. Not like in the past few years where the title was on the line on the last race at the very last lap, but this race was a lot calmer and more relaxed than the last few season. But of course that didn't stop the race from becoming more exciting!!!

Too bad Lewis Hamilton had retired from the race with brake issues after looking almost unstoppable during practice and qualifying, but then again the Red Bull were looking good as well. A good way for them to end the season by finishing 1-2 ahead of the Brawn GP cars after a hard fought battle between Mark Webber and Jenson Button near the closing stage of the race. Haha, a great race none the less.....

So with 17 races all completed I guess its a well deserved rest for all the teams and the start of the rumors about which drivers going where, which teams will compete next year (if BMW Sauber could fill in the grid that is) as well as seeing the newer teams unveiling their cars and whatnot. Its been a great season for this year and just hope next year would be just as great! Not suree if I will cover all the races like I'm doing now though, but I'll try if I'm up to it. =)

Vettel closes season with superb victory

This Is It

Went to watch this video (albeit, a little unexpectedly) with my brother and sister yesterday and as much as I hate to say this but..... you just got to watch this!!! Don't matter if you are a fan of Michael Jackson or not (or heck, even if you don't f**king know him!!!) you just have to go watch it, even if you know you could just download this somewhere or already know what the movie is all about...... go watch it as a tribute to the great man himself, the king of pop....

Now I know I'm not that much of a fan of MJ compared to my brother or sister (both of them went to the concert that was in Malaysia a few years back) but after watching Michael Jackson's This Is It I'm convinced that maybe I should probably drop my ignorance and actually appreciate his music a little more. Anyway, if you didn't already know the movie was basically just a documentary of MJ doing some rehearsals before performing This Is It live concert in London. Sadly though, he passed away just a few weeks before the first concert was supposed to be performed and somehow only the people working with him on the rehearsal were the only people who managed to see his last performance.

Don't know how to actually describe the movie (or documentary) but it is interesting to see his on stage performance in different perspective. As well as performing some of his most well known songs (too many to list down, but you would probably know what the songs were) there were some insight of how everything was being prepared, from the choreograph to how the stage was prepared, the costumes, etc. Its amazing how much work they actually put into this just so the fans could witness what is probably be MJ's last ever concert.

Enough about me talking about it though, its no point talking about it unless you actually go and watch it. Trust me, its worth the time and money to see this once in a lifetime movie. Its gonna be aired only for 2 weeks (starting from October 29th) in theaters so do go watch it if you have the time. In conclusion I'll probably rate this movie an 8/10. Sure it is not as perfect as I would like it but you just have to witness the awesomeness that is "The King".....

Weirdest Halloween Day Ever!!!

Quite frankly, I don't even know what happened to me or even say anything that isn't nonsense about today. Practically almost everything that I do today wasn't even planned at all and wow..... surprised? confused? butthurt? rage'd? happy? sad? yes, a very EMOtional Halloween day indeed.....

Woke up in the morning, can't connect to the internet (after waiting for 4 hours to connect to the internet the night before) only to found out that my phone line got short (or something?), rage'd hard (whacked my modem a few good times. Surprised its still working), went to an internet cafe for an hour or two (just so I could go online!), got back home and went to a wedding, came back home, went to watch Michael Jackson: This Is It (more on that on another post), came back home (again) and then proceed to watch the Abu Dhabi F1 qualifying session on TV, on my computer, tried to connect to the internet (which I did!) while the phone line is still down and here is where I ended up lol.

Told ya it was random and nonsense, hahahahaha.....
Not quite sure how your Halloween day is but lets just hope it isn't as weird as mine. With that said, Happy Halloween folks!!! =D

How Low?

That is just wickedly low. The fact that those 2 cars were actually scraping the flat ground even at a very slow speed just says it all. Gotta give credit to the Japanese though, for having the craziest car scene in the world.....

Found this on HellaFlush

You'll Forget Me

Song might be a bit old but for some odd reason or another I just love listening to these song for these past few days!!! Just happened to give Virtual Oblivion a spin on my iPod one day and I started listening to this song, I just "somehow" got attached to it.....

Yeah yeah, just enjoy listening to the upload. Might upload a couple more songs on Youtube if I have some time during the weekends. Oh, and I'll just leave this post with one quote I made up:

"You'll forget me and not evoke myself."


Should I really upgrade to Windows 7?

Hmmmmmm..... maybe its time for me to update my PC after all. Just been released a few days ago, and already many people are saying that Windows 7 is the best Windows OS ever! Certainly a great improvement over the over-hyped and resource hungry (and probably overly expensive) Windows Vista. Seeing people talking about Windows 7 just makes me feel so left out.... >_<

As people might have known, I'm still using Windows XP since the first day I bought this PC (a pirated XP at that!) and still using SP2 for some reason (never bothered updating to SP3 for obvious reasons) and I waited out from using Vista after seeing so many people complaining that Vista is slow, how most XP applications and games didn't work, etc. kinda puts me off from using it. But still, should a move to Windows 7 be a good move? Or should I just stick with XP until it is completely obsolete? I don't care though, maybe I should put my money on upgrading my PC instead of saving that money for a PS3, laptop or car parts. Whatever it is, the world and everyone else just keeps moving forward while I'm the one who is slipping backwards, undecided on what to do because of poverty. (well not to that extent but you get the point)

Congrats Button & Brawn GP!

Oh what a fairy tale ending for Jenson Button and the Brawn GP team. Earlier this year they didn't even know if they were gonna race this season, and when all things are said and done they stand on top as the champions. Gotta give it to them for the effort, for a small and new team to enter F1 and win is quite a feat.

Well of course, the race itself was pretty awesome as you would expect from Interlagos and just like last year it is also where the world championship title is determined. (although this is not the last race of the season) Yeah, good news for Button and all, but I kinda feel sorry for both Sebastian Vettel and Rubens Barrichello. Both of them should have done a lot better to take the championship fight to Abu Dhabi but I guess Jenson was too good to catch up to during the race.

All things aside, Mark Webber and the Red Bull team did a splendid job taking the win in Brazil, its a shame that they didn't get to take the fight of constructors championship to the final round but the odds were stacked against them even before the weekend started. Oh well, there is always next year I guess. So with that all said, should there be anything looking forward to in Abu Dhabi for the final round of the Formula One calendar? For one, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the drivers tackle the course and see how well the track is designed for racing. Also, it will be the last time for some of the drivers and teams to be racing for this season, as some of the drivers will swap places for next year and with BMWs departure from F1 as of next season it will be a race to savor until the new season starts next year.

Webber wins, Button and Brawn Champions
Jenson Button: World Champion

Wörthersee Tour 2009

Yeah, just finished watching it a few hours ago and I got to say that Wagenwerks pulled out all the stops with this one. The cinematography, the music, the settings and of course, the cars themselves all looked stunning in that video. All props to them for making such an awesome feature on Worthersee....

So how did I get interested in this in the first place? Well it all started when I first watched the trailer on Speedhunters. I do have to say that after I watched the trailer I was hooked straight away and thought of getting it. After that I went to their website and noticed they were selling the pre-order DVD (which comes with said t-shirt and stickers) and I knew I just had to buy this. So as for saying what Wagenwerks are, they are an automotive film crew that are based in the US which focuses primarily on Volkswagen cars and cars that are related to Volkswagen Group. With that said though, I do feel like they left out a lot of things in that video and at about 40 minutes long it does feel kinda short. Not that I'm complaining or anything, it was quite "worth-the-see" if you know what I mean lol. Watch this trailer and maybe you will understand what I'm talking about:

Seriously, all the cars in the video was dope. All the cars looked great, had (mostly) perfect wheel fitment and stance and each and every one of those cars are unique in their own ways. If only more tuners would make their cars more "simple" instead of just bolting parts on the car and having no style whatsoever.

Note: Okay, I know this isn't really much of a review and I know I left out tons of details about the Worthersee event, the tracks, and the cars and whatever else that I forgot to mention but its just up to you to find out more about it or not.

OMFG look what I got in the mail today!!!!!

Damn right I'm excited!!! After ordering it last month and waiting for like 2 weeks for it to ship it here, I finally got this in the mail today. Got it shipped all the way from the United States of America baby! Lol, okay this might not look interesting or anything, so what is all this hype about then? Well just read along if you want to know. =)

Okay okay, first of all I just want to let you know that this is the first time that I actually ordered anything online lol. (internationally that is) But since I was so desperate to get this I got some help from someone *ahem* to help me order it and use his account to pay for it, hehe. So like, what is chopped on that box you asked? Well if you could read what it says on the box it does clearly read Wagenwerks. So what is Wagenwerks you wonder? Well I myself am not very sure how to explain it right now, but in short it is clearly about cars (Volkswagen to be precise) and well, cool looking cars that will make your jaw drop at that. I will explain more on this tomorrow, but for now though I'll just post the contents that is inside the box.

So lets see whats inside the box:

Oh, a paper wrapper with a sticker on it?

Certainly, the sticker does look quite nice even though its just to hold the wrapper in place. Wish they had given me extra stickers for the trouble shipping it here lol. Oh alright alright, lets get to the main content shall we?

..... and here it is! So as you can see, I get a DVD, a T-Shirt and 2 stickers. So whats so special about this? Well if anyone wanted to know, this is a special pre-order of Wagenwerks' "Worthersee Tour 2009" DVD which comes with the limited edition T-Shirt (which only comes with the pre-order) and 2 Wagenwerks stickers. Got to say though, both the T-shirt and stickers looks pretty awesome in person than seeing it in pictures online. The T-shirt quality was quite okay and tried wearing it and was quite comfortable to wear. (not sure though what would happen once I start washing it....) As for the sticker, they just look amazing doesn't it? Had a cool matte/shiny effect on it and I just like how the whole logo looks. Not sure what I will stick it on to though, maybe I'll just keep it and stick on my future Volkswagen? (haha, whenever that may be....)

How much does this all cost me then? Well when I saw the pre-order on the site it says US$49.99 (or about RM169) and with the added cost for shipping, tax and whatnot the total was about RM200. So is it all worth it? I can't say for sure, but for me it is just worth every penny. Not sure if it is for everyone, you just need to have that certain taste for modified VWs then only you will understand. Just need to say thanks to my brother for ordering and paying it first for me (since I don't have a paypal or online cash or my own bank account) and I'll promise I'll pay him when he comes by.

So yeah, thanks for reading my not-so-worth rant about this delivery lol. Well I'll try to watch the DVD tomorrow (if I have time) and give a review about the DVD as well as describing Wagenwerks in my very own words and know more about them, what they do and why VW lovers just need to watch their videos and buy their DVDs.

102 Golds in Gran Turismo PSP

Well I finally did it! After two weeks (maybe more, I'm not sure) of playing Gran Turismo on the PSP I finally got all 102 Golds in Driving Challenges without using any cheat whatsoever! Yeah yeah, I know I'm not the first to do it (think there were several others before me) but still, I'm one of the few that could actually do it this early.....

To be honest, the challenges was quite easy compared with the previous Gran Turismo games (albeit, I still had to retry like a hundred times before I get a Gold on some of the challenges lol) and was quite fun actually to try each of the challenges. Of course the sad part was I didn't get to unlock anything special when I get all gold compared to the console versions (only got a custom BGM option after I pass through a few challenges) and the only thing I get out of it was just extra credit, which wasn't much really (compared to the "test course" race which gets you more money way more faster). Whatever, I still have a lot of racing to do as well as buying more really cool cars in this game!!!!

More photos to prove that I got all Gold for all the challenges. =)

First Porsche Panamera in Malaysia?

Well maybe not exactly the first, but I'm not sure if anyone posted the car yet on the internet so this just might exactly be the first "on the road" shot of the brand new Porsche Panamera!

The car was just released here a couple of days ago and I was quite surprised when I saw this car on my rear view mirror on my way back to college yesterday. Luckily enough the car was going in the same direction as we were (for a short while at least) which was enough for me to get a few shots of the car.

So how much does this car cost? Well the base model (the Panamera S) starts at RM998,000.00 (or about US$300,000 with tax and whatnot). Holy cripes!!!! O_O
