Woots! Just got back from a Premiere Screening of Due Date, thanks to Cari for the invitation. This movie will be on cinema starting from tomorrow 2nd Dec 2010.



Due date is a comedy movie starred by Robert Downey Jr. (The Funny Ironman) and Zach Galifianakis a siao great comedian.

The movie is about Peter Highman which are Robert Downey Jr. is expecting the first time father whose wife is due date in mere five days away. So he hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth. Everything was turned misery when he bumped with a total stranger, Ethan Tremblay aka Ethan Chase that caused him to be in "no fly" list.

Thus Peter got no choice to drive to LA but he lost his ID & wallet on the plane. That made him no option to follow Ethan for a cross-country road trip and disaster came during the road trip.

It was a funny movie that just for adult, there are just too many F words flying here and there. And also the cute dog do mastxxxxtion. lol!


Rate 7.5/10 Had a great laugh in the cinema, enjoyed the silly acts of Zach till sometimes I feel want to strangle him. Do check out how Zach walks in this movie, it just like Paris Hilton. XD

Bruce Lee, My Brother & Rapunzel

Posted by Joshua |

Just got back home after catched 2 movies on the same day. Hahaha! Keeping up to break the record of watching 100 movies this year.

This evening I've actually watched "Bruce Lee My Brother"



This movie is an untold story of the legendary martial artist and actor, Bruce Lee by his younger brother Robert Lee.

The name of Bruce was actually an incident mistake by his noob English's father. He repeated the word "Push" by his wife after deliver Bruce Lee in hospital to a nurse that was asking the name after the new baby boy. Not that sure it's a true fact or not but it's quite acceptable lol!

The story his childhood life and his grow up paths. His nature to be rebellious and so competing in everything.

Bruce Lee was born in US, don't know how to cycle and he was sent back to US due to a big and messy trouble he involved.

Rate 8.5/10 The story only his grown up life in Hong Kong and stopped when he was move to US. Interesting life he has and really made me want to know more about him.

BTW today is Bruce Lee 60th's birthday.


The next movie that I watched is Rapunzel, A Tangled Tale.



Some of you may have know the story of Rapunzel, a classic fairy tale which tells a story of young Rapunzel whose has a magical hair that can heal a lot illness.

This Rapunzel by Disney was a musical animated film that changed the originality of the movie where by the original version of Rapunzel is not supposed to be a princess while the Flynn was a prince. But still the changes bring more positive feel to it and seasoned with jokes.

Rate 8.5/10 This movie actually reminded me Cinderella. Love the jokes and the cute chameleon.

Seem that I've watched 2 great movie. Did you watch any nice movies that you can share with me?

BTW do follow me on Twitter yo!

How To Travel From China to Japan with GoogleMaps?

Posted by Joshua |

GPS now is getting much commons to be used for road directions. Thus there are a lot services developed to caters the need.

One of the most common in use is GoogleMaps, it helps you can find locations and even directions from point A to point B with guidance which roads and what transportations you should take.

Here's a BOLD experiment on how intelligent GoogleMaps is.

A directions set of searching how to travel from China to Japan and the outcome is simply eye popping.

Check out the direction of 42.



"Jet ski across the Pacific Ocean" somemore is a 782km. I can assure you would not able to make it to the China border even you have sufficient gasoline as you would be gunned down by the China enforcement. lol!

Damn ridiculous right? If you don't believe, you can test out by yourself.

Go to GoogleMaps and search direction China to Japan.

Happy E-Travelling and Happy Holiday :)

Sir Richard Branson as AirAsia Stewardess

Posted by Joshua |

Yes! You read it right Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Group will be dressing up as an AirAsia Stewardess after losing himself in a dress-crossing bet with Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes on the 2010 Formula One championship. Both were agreed that whose Formula One team lost would serve as a "stewardess" on the winner's airline

You can imagine here now


Although both team didn't score any championship points but Lotus F1 were placed ahead of Branson's Virgin Racing in the ranking.

Thus Lotus F1 boss Tony Fernandes will auction off seats on an AirAsia flight where Sir Richard Branson will be dress up as a flight attendant after losing the bet for charity purposes.

Charity + Great Marketing Publicity = Thumbsssss UP to Datuk Tony Fernandes.


PETALING JAYA: It looks like Virgin Group boss Sir Richard Branson will be dressing up as an AirAsia stewardess after all for losing a bet with Lotus Racing team principal Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes over which of their teams would do better in the just-concluded Formula 1 season.


The two men had made a bet at the start of the season in March that the loser must serve as a “stewardess” on the winner’s airline.


Despite both teams failing to score any championship points throughout the season, Malaysian-backed Lotus Racing finished ahead of Virgin Racing in all but two races (in Italy and Singapore).


After the season’s final race at the sensational Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, Lotus finished in 10th spot while Virgin finished last among the 12 teams.


Fernandes said: “It’s time for Richard to start preparing himself for some hard work ... and the likely pain of a pair of high heels!”


The date of the Kuala Lumpur-London AirAsia flight has yet to be set, but seats will be auctioned off and the money given to Branson’s chosen charity.


“We have agreed that we will run an online charity auction for the seats on the route to raise money for a charity of Richard’s choice and give fans of both teams the chance to be on the flight.


“The aim is to raise as much money as we can for a good cause ... So the discomfort Richard will have to go through will be worth as much as it possibly can be.”


The friendly wager aside, Fernandes was delighted to have achieved the team’s primary target to be the best team among the newcomers.


Besides Lotus and Virgin, the other new team on the grid was the Spanish Hispania Racing (HRT) team, which finished 11th.


“I am completely relieved, completely ecstatic, happy and vindicated in making the decision to go into F1,” said Fernandes, who had the support of Malaysian conglomerates like Naza, Proton and Maxis to bring Lotus back into the premier racing fraternity after a 16-year hiatus.


“To complete 19 races and finish in 10th spot, after having just five months to build the car, is something that is truly magical.”


“This is the first chapter of a long career ahead and we will create our own future, destiny and history from here,” said Fernandes.

Update: Sir Richard Branson has confirmed & announced to serve on Air Asia X on 1st May with full Air Asia stewardess outfit, he may probably shaves his leg.

Which One Nice To Grill? Android? WinPho7? or iOS?

Posted by Joshua |

Curious how the taste like of grilled Android G2, HTC Surround Windows Phone 7 & iPhone 4?



EZGrill, a company that sells ready-to-use disposable grill took a crazy stupidity I would said test of which of the following phones about can be grilled fast.

It's a great attention marketing acts but a bit alot waste.

Android G2 cost USD599, HTC Surround USD549 & iPhone 4 USD731 and the total are USD1879. They need to sell 188 of their ezgrill to get back the value of losses.

Check out the video below;


Android G2 was the 1st to down then iPhone 4 and lastly the HTC Surround. If you did watch the video, surprisingly iPhone 4 has temperature warning sign prompted before it turned off. This has shown that iOS has the intelligency to protect itself from overheat that lead to hardwares damages. So it also tell that there a possibility the iPhone 4 may has last longer or even beat the HTC Surround. Just my 2 cents.
