Grown Ups | Happy Birthday

Posted by Joshua |

Yesterday I've watched Grown Ups with my fellow frens and celebrated YY's birthday at TGI Friday, Pavilion.



Grown Ups is an American buddy-comedy film starred Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schnieder. This movie about after 30 years, 5 good friends reunited for his coach's funeral who was theirs' great inspiration during their's junior high basketball.

They spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing older doesn’t mean growing up.

Rate 8/10 A great weekend movie for friends and family to spare time together. Had a super great laugh in cinema from start till the end of the movie.


Next post gonna be YY's birthday celebration at TGIF!

The Last Airbender

Posted by Joshua |

Last week I've watched The Last Airbender with friends at Pavilion.

Did not read or watch the cartoon series of this movie so I wouldn't place a very high expectation on this movie. The computer graphic of the movie's trailer attracted me




The world is divided into four kingdoms, each represented by the element they harness, and peace has lasted throughout the realms of Water, Air, Earth, and Fire under the supervision of the Avatar, a link to the spirit world and the only being capable of mastering the use of all four elements. When young Avatar Aang disappears, the Fire Nation launches an attack to eradicate all members of the Air Nomads to prevent interference in their future plans for world domination. 100 years pass and current Fire Lord Ozai continues to conquer and imprison anyone with elemental "bending" abilities in the Earth and Water Kingdoms, while siblings Katara and Sokka from a Southern Water Tribe find a mysterious boy trapped beneath the ice outside their village. Upon rescuing him, he reveals himself to be Aang, Avatar and last of the Air Nomads. Swearing to protect the Avatar, Katara and Sokka journey with him to the Northern Water Kingdom in his quest to master "Waterbending" and eventually fulfill his destiny of once again restoring peace to the world. But as they inch nearer to their goal, the group must evade Prince Zuko, the exiled son of Lord Ozai, Commander Zhao, the Fire Nation's military leader, and the tyrannical onslaught of the evil Fire Lord himself. Written by The Massie Twins



Rate 8/10 The CG is very impressive but felt a bit cheated cause the end is........ incomplete. No ending geh? lol! This movie really cheap money one XD

Nokia Ovi Challenge

Posted by Joshua |

Last week I've attended Nokia Ovi Challenge event organized by Nokia Malaysia.

Nokia Ovi Challenge is a treasure hunt game that used The Nokia Ovi Maps that come preloaded on most of the new Nokia GPS enabled phone.

The event took place at the most busiest and crowded city in Malaysia, the heart of Malaysia Kuala Lumpur.

A lot medias from Magazine to Newspaper and bloggers are invited for this event. The challenge started at Dome, Bangsar. We are grouped in 7 teams and each team would have a car and a driver to send us to the pit stop for all of the challenges.


I'm in Team 1 with Nigel Sia & Asrial Baker.



1st pit stop is to get our way to Berjaya Times Square with the help of Ovi Maps Navigation on a Nokia N97 mini.



Once we reached to BTS, we need to find Foot Master Fish Spa for our 1st challenge.


2 Team members need to have a 15 min fish spa on the same time 1 of the team member need to download a game called That Roach from Ovi Store and the other need to play the game.

So I downloads the game and Nigel get to play.

Look at the stress face of Nigel. Hey! Don't press so hard and break the screen k?


Something magic happened while Nigel playing the game, I saw a live cockroach swimming on the water and I said "WTF! Nigel, the cockroach u smacked inside the game dropped out ler' lol!


It still swimming around the aquarium eh.

The next challenge is use the Ovi Maps navigate to Pavilion.

The 2nd challenge is to find a restaurant name Serai Satay Bar with help of "HungryGoWhere" which a feature available in Ovi Map. Then we need to buy RM10 of satay.

Next share the location with Ovi Maps via Facebook and tagged a group photo of our team. We also must finish off all the satay before we can get our next clue.

The 3rd pit stop is KLCC and this time we have to walk with the help of Ovi Maps Walk Guidance to the destination.

The 3rd challenge involved an upcoming Nokia device Nokia N8 that will be used to create a video of a fashion runway at Giordano.

We are given RM200 to spend to dress up a member to be the model of the video and that is ME! lol! I got myself a short, I LOVE Kuala Lumpur Tee and a hoody.


We shoot the video using Nokia N8 with HD capability and as well editing which are made easy in this device. The video quality is superb, after all it's High Definition.

Guess what? In this challenge I can keep the clothes that I've bought from Giordano although I prefer to keep the Nokia N8. lol! Thanks Nokia Malaysia and as well my team member :)

The final pit stop is at Neo Restaurant & Luxe Lounge.

Sad! we are the 3rd team to reach, thanks to the long route that directed us a big round before reached to the destination now blaming the GPS. XD.


Lunch are served at Neo Restaurant. They also plays the videos that we took on Giordano Challenge. Thanks to the availability of HDMI on the Nokia N8, the video output direct is super clear and can see my FUGLY face on the big screen.

The winner of the team won themselves a Nokia X6 and a Nokia Bluetooth. So nice can?


The 1st runner up won themselves Nokia 6700 Slide each. That's sweet.

Although we didn't win anything but it's fun and a great experience. Run crazily around the busy city like nobody's business. Great partners with Nigel & Asrial.

A group photos before head back to Bangsar.


Thanks again to Nokia Malaysia to have a such great and fun event for all of us. Congraz to all the winners!

Repo Men

Posted by Joshua |

Yesterday night I've watched Repo Men at e@Curve, thanks to United International Pictures Malaysia for the tickets.



Repo Men formerly known as Repossession Mambo is a 2010 American science fiction action movie starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker.

Repo is actually mean Repossession. A corporation called The Union has perfected the creation of artificial organs which have replaced organ transplant. The artificial organs/arfgons are also sold on super high interest rate credit for those who can't afford.

If the customer unable to maintain the payments, a repo-man will be sent to customer to reclaim their property. The process of the repossession is brutal and often results in death of the customer.

Jude Law as Remy in Repo Men was when suffers a cardiac failure during his job as Repo Men and when he awakens, he found himself fitted with the company's top-of-line heart replacement and as well a hefty debt. The story goes on when he can't make payment due to side effect of the procedure that his heart's no longer in the job.

Rate 8/10 I can actually feel the pain in this movie Ouch! Great storyline, the last part is really unpredictable although the ending is a bit sad.

Lan Pet Pet

Posted by Joshua |

A short blogpost for 2day.

Just now at Pavilion I've spotted a quite weird artist name on a local movie poster.

Check out the cast's name! The one on the center, top of Azlee Jaafar.

I'm not sure any of you heard of him? Yeah! Probably some of you might have, but seriously I didn't know really got such name some more he is a local artist.

What so funny with the name Lan Pet Pet? The word "Pet Pet" in cantonese is actually mean women's private part and the "Lan" mean spoil/damaged. So the combined words become....... I guess you can build the word yourself lol!.

I didn't make this out, the name really exist. Check out the photo below.

If you still don't believe, you can ask Mr. Google and type Lan Pet Pet on the search engine.

Now the question is;

Does his father hate him very much till he wanted his name to be laughed in his entire life?

or

He has a good chinese friend that make fun of him telling him that he should get a chinese name and the name of Lan Pet Pet mean I'm Very Hensem. lol!

What else you can think of? Share with me :)

p/s just a curiosity of his nick and not trying to create any bad reputation of him.

The Expendables | Nokia Ovi Challenge

Posted by Joshua |

Just got back from The Garden and watched The Expendables. Thanks to Nusantara Edaran Filem for the press screening allowing me to watch the movie 3 days before it hits to cinema.



How great to watch all the great fighters played in one movie like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Steve Austin aka Stone Cold, Randy Couture & more.

Expendable: capable of being sacrificed in order to accomplish a military objective.

THE EXPENDABLES is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren't quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger the men struggle with an even tougher challenge, one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the Leader, the Sage and the Strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as "removing those hard to get at stains". The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.

When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people. On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own.
Synopsis by IMDb

I believe some of you may have watched the trailer probably on Youtube or cinema and the story seem a bit boring right? Guess what? It's totally different, the actions and explosions is totally insane and may look too violent.

Rate 7.5/10 The starting of the story is a bit slow and the behind part actions & explosion non-stop. All Sylvester Stallone's movie always sure will have him save his princess and leaving her behind. XD

FYI! You may found alot headshot in this movie and the human flesh scattered around. lol!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This morning I've attended an event by Nokia Malaysia "Nokia Ovi Challenge" at Bangsar Shopping Center.

More about it on my next blogpost. Stay tune yo!

MTV World Stage 2010 Live in Malaysia + Videos

Posted by Joshua |

Yeah! A quite late blogpost bout the MTV World Stage that happened last Saturday. Thank you to BlupBlup for the ticket, it great to be Blupper (is tat the right name? lol!)

Reached there quite late as the tix need to be collected b4 1pm, thanks to brother TianChad for collecting for me.

Yeah! I'm ready for Party!!!!!


Look at the crowds, the super long queue. The Q was from the entrance till the highway there, no kidding eh. The traffic is worst than Federal Highway + LDP, 10 min only move quarter step, lol!


Everything get more worst when the weather turned dark and it started to rain when we "ALMOST" approached the entrance. I'm semi wet please don't think senget k? before I actually got myself a poncho.

BTW their's poncho is very nice one, got tie and pass printed on it. I should have take an extra =P Cheapskate!

FYI, this event professional camera such as D-SLR are prohibited so I only can use my phone camera to take picha. Sorry for the poor quality photos.

Got our spot quite near to the stage and cam-ho-ed with the Jason & Rames.


Everyone was damn high when BunkFace shown up and the music started to rock on the stage.


A great starter of the event with BunkFace, the spotlight colours damn nice kan?


The next performance was WonderGirls, yeah is WonderGirls that came all the way from Hon Kok/Korea. They are super hot and sexy.


Due to rain, there are some technical problem occurs behind the stage, something about the LED behind the stage. Due to this reason, they have delayed the performance of Tokio Hotel and Katy Perry.

A quite upset for the delay and the annoyed repeat ads on the big LED screen. After 5~6 hours standing with soaked wet shoe, felt my feet going to rotted. I couldn't take it anymore and have leave early, missed the Tokia Hotel & Katy Perry's performance, heard it was a great show. Damn!

Sigh, lesson learned no sport shoe if attending open air concerts.

Share with you guys 2 videos that I took;

The crowds at MTV World Stage.


Wondergirls singing Nobody Nobody but chu. Pray it's not going to be removed that soon. Enjoy!

It's called Wajalution.


Today, Paultan have published some leaked photos of "Waja Lancer" to be launched soon by a reader of Paultan.org.

It's a quite obvious outlook front and rear that ported from the current Mitsubishi Lancer X.


even the rear light and boot are the same.


Below are the photos that rendered by the famous Automotive Manipulator, Theophilus Chin  based on the leaked photos of the Waja Lancer.




The affected parties after released it would be the Mitsubishi Sales Team and Customized Body Kit Shop.

Here the million dollars ringgit questions;
What price would you be expected?
What engine would be planted underhood? Campro? CPS?

I guess now everyone can own a sport look only car with affordable price soon. The owner of Mitsubishi Lancer must hate Proton very much now. Hahhah!

Who Is Salt?

Posted by Joshua |

Last Friday I've watched Salt with Siao Gang at Mid Valley.



Who is Salt? She is Jackie Chan. Hahahah! Why? In this movie, she's a good fighter that can kill a lot peoples by herself. Sound like Jackie Chan right? lol!

Clever idea of misleading who is Salt actually?

Rate 8.5/10 A quite exaggerated fight with the planning, explosion and crashing. Quite like the storyline.
