movie review: Kick ass

Chloe Grace Moretz as Mindy Macready/Hit-Girl.

This part contains spoilers: Kick Ass on wikipedia

sometimes going to the cinema and watching a movie is like a gamble. Either is an awesome movie or it's the lousiest movie on earth. This was what I experienced when going to the cinema watching Kick Ass. I have nothing to lose because it was on a Wednesday and it only cost RM5 as opposed to the normal price of RM9-RM10

apparently it action-comedy superhero movie based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. and directed by Matthew vaughn

Honestly for me the humor in the movie is quite dry and from the cinema goer's reaction I think most of them didn't get it. So I was left laughing out loud on my own in the theater. Other then that I personally think that is an enjoyable movie to watched.
Be warned though, if you can't stomach a profanity laced movie and bloody thematic bloodbath scenes, I strongly urged you to not watched this movie and don't expect to be highly IQ-ed challenged, it's a comic superhero movie, just enjoy this movie as an awesomely kick-ass one.

what would you do?

I think fear is what stopping us from helping other people in need or in trouble. How circumstances would have been different if someone did something when they passed by that man.
So should I be sympathetic and be understanding to the rest of the passerby?? I think not. If he took so much of his time and courage to save that woman from being mug, why not the rest??Why is it so hard to make that called to the paramedic??Situations like this are hard to fathom. life *sigh*

Elvina this is dedicated to you

with much love,
Zijian, Kenneth and yours truly

Blast from the past:Wherever you will go

So lately, I've been wonderin
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone, you'll need love
To light the shadows on your face
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
And between the sand and stone
Could you make it on your own

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
The way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you
Through the darkest of your days
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
Well I hope there's someone out there
Who can bring me back to you


Runaway with my heart
Runaway with my hope
Runaway with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart and your mind
I'll stay with you for all of time


If I could turn back time
I'll go wherever you will go
If I could make you mine
I'll go wherever you will go

the name is Sullivan

my full name is Sullivan Alex Tan, if you haven't know that yet. As for the urban dictionary definition of Sullivan,so here it is.(Inspired by Stephanie)

Oh my Goodness, did you just see that guy smile?? He is totally a Sullivan.

I was tailgating at a Giant's game and to my right a group was making burgers, to my left a group was making egg sandwiches...I thought "Why not make a Sullivan?"
-The Sullivan is when someone gets so drunk, high or both, that they simultaneously vomit and shit, at the same time. usually, both the throw-up and poop is not contained, and gets all over the floor and walls. Found commonly amongst drunk people who are lactose intolerant, but still consume dairy product.
Yo, that GIRL was so drunk she Sullivaned all over the bathroom!


Dude, I'm so drunk I think I'm gonna Sullivan, right here, right now.

-(verb and/or noun) :: the act of freaking out to the most littlest details - accompanied with a tweak in the whole face and body, pointing and viscously shaking the finger, and shrugging the shoulders whilst simultaneously exclaiming "oi!" - especially after just having asked to "define" something or stated something annoying of the sorts.

*Disclaimer :: not recommended to drink or blaze with someone who pulls a sullivan.
Guy1 :: ay sullivan, its your turn for a drunken hook-up!

The Sullivan :: (air quoting) define "drunken hook-up" - accompanied by the acts stated above.

Chick1 :: dude whyy would you ask that aldsuscoivalksndflakwerhjoicuf angry angry yer such an annoying little bottomhead sully!!!!!!

>.<" What!!????

Segamat and tomyam

Okay to be honest this trip was the longest ever. The last time I went(which was at the boys home), the entourage usually gets back to Malacca at about 2pm the least. This time around we got back to Malacca at almost 5pm.
Duty roasters and schedules.

Session stars with a little bit of praise and worship

*yawns* When is the activities starting ar?
Kenneth: Cha?? What song lah?

After that, we proceed with the games which I was in charge.

and after games, we head to the activities
teaching the girls the steps of the tambourine
Jou Chean explaning to the kids how to do the arts and crafts.

okay this was colored by Jou Chean. Let do a trivia quiz: He has an obvious mohowk, a very good basketballer and he is from sarawak. Can you guess who is the fellow in the arts and craft bunny above

John Z teaching the drums

Kenneth teaching the girls a thing or two about the right technique to strum the guitar.

Before we left, a customary group picture.

I feel that the boys house I went to the last time has more well behave kids than the girls house.(not being sexiest here). At the end of the day, I guess it's the fellowship that counts.\

After this we headed to Tangkak tomyam noodle shop which according to Angel is popular among the locals there.

the claypot tomyam yee mee was okay. It lack a few things which is spiciness and also the sourness needed in an extremely good tom yam soup. Other than that, it was just okay. At least the meatballs were tasty.

that sums of a pretty fruitly outing to Segamat

the segamat trip

Will tell you more after my nap. Cheers

vanilla twilight

Vanilla Twilight lyrics
Songwriters: Young, Adam;

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere

'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light-blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly

The silence isn't so bad
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia
Chills me to the bone

But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist-deep in thought because
When I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone, I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight
I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again

And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh, if my voice could reach
Back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear
Oh darling, I wish you were here

the world's ugliest animal 02

movie review: clash of the titans

when Avater came out, I was like this movie is going to set the benchmark for 3D movies so high that other studios that tries to come out with another 3D movie will be put under the carpet. Point in case Alice in Wonderland. That movie kinda suck in 3D, but the movie was okay though. So when Clash of the Titan was out in 3D I decide to skip the hoopla of watching it in that format.

this movie is literally a popcorn movie. You just need to go into the cinema with not much expectations, because if you do so you will be disappointed with the movie which lacks a lot in the structural and the expansion and development of the character and story. At least if you take into account the actions sequences in the movies, it does more in covering up the flaws mentioned earlier but also give the movie a much needed buzz.

so I will highly recommend watching this is normal non 3D screen and don't expect a great movie, it's just an okay one.

spinach stew(original)

Spinach Stew

Yeah Im in my mid twenties
Youd assume that Ive grown up
And Id stop singing about farts
Butt no

You see I was inspired
When I smelled something strange
And I found a nice surprise
When I reached back for some change

Spinach stew oh it smelled fresh and new
Youre probably thinking its poop
Butt its not you freakin newb
Spinach stew, spinach stew
Its organic juice
So it must be good for you

I had no plates around
So I got a cup
And I filled it up
With stew

Invited hungry people
And I fed everyone
And they were so stuffed
With poop, I mean stew

Spinach stew oh it smelled fresh and new
Youre probably thinking its poop
Butt its not you freakin newb
Spinach stew, spinach stew
Its organic juice
So it must be good for you

10 most suprising thing about the iPad

The UPS guy handed me my new iPad just a few hours ago, and yes--the jumbo-sized screen is as glorious as they say, and I was shocked by how good HD videos looked. But I was also surprised by how heavy the iPad feels, and if you were hoping to read e-books all day under the clear, bright blue sky, well...bad news, folks. These and more iPad surprises, coming right up.

1. It screams
The early reviews all said that the iPad was "wicked fast," and boy, they weren't kidding. Applications literally fly open, and browsing the Web on Safari is way faster than on the iPhone. I could get used to this.

2. It's heavier than I thought it would be

One-and-a-half pounds sounds pretty light, especially when you consider that the flyweight MacBook Air weighs in at about 3.5 pounds. That said, the iPad felt surprisingly heavy the first time I hefted it—not so heavy that I'm bursting a blood vessel or anything, but I'm curious to see how it'll feel after an hour or so of reading an iBook, what Apple is calling the e-books you can download onto the device.

3. Good luck reading e-books in direct sunlight
Yes, the iPad has it all over the Kindle when it comes to its eye-catching color screen and sleek page-flicking animations. The beauty of the Kindle's black-and-white e-ink screen, however, is that text stands out quite nicely when you're reading in the sun; on the iPad, however, the color display looks disappointingly washed out in direct sunlight, problematic for reading e-books poolside.

4. Virtual QWERTY keypad isn't as bad as I'd feared

No, it's nothing like typing on a real keyboard, but for me, the iPad's virtual QWERTY keypad isn't nearly as terrible as many had warned. I've managed to bang out a few decent-sized emails on the thing, and it's certainly better than typing on the iPhone. The key, I've found, is to relax and let the automatic error correction do its thing; if you keep hitting backspace to fix your errors (and there will be errors, trust me), you'll be tapping all day. That said, keep in mind that to type on the iPad, you must do one of several things:

Prop it (awkwardly) in your lap to type

Place it flat on a table—not the best solution due to the iPad's curved back

Hold it in one hand and tap with the other, effectively slashing your possible WPM

Invest in Apple's $79 iPad keyboard dock

Use Apple's $39 case to prop the iPad up at a good typing angle

5. Can't charge iPad over a USB port
First I tried it on my USB hub, then on the powered USB port on my MacBook Pro, but juice—not even when the iPad's syncing with iTunes. Looks like the only way to charge the iPad, apparently, is using the included AC wall adapter. Good thing the iPad's battery is rated for 10-plus hours.

6. HD videos look amazing
Practically the first thing I did after unpacking the iPad was queue up the 720p trailer for "Avatar," and...whoa. Absolutely gorgeous. Watching movies on the plane will never be the same again.

7. Reflections on the display are pretty distracting
The moment the wife and I were done "oohing" and "ahhing" over that "Avatar" video, we started complaining about our reflections in the iPad's glass display. It's not bad at all when you're surfing or composing email, but if you're watching a movie—and especially during a darkly lit scene—prepare to see your reflected self looking back at you. (Yes, the iPhone's screen suffers from glare, too, but at least I couldn't see my entire head reflected in the glass.)

8. Location-based services work fine in a pinch

One of the problems with the Wi-Fi-only iPad versus the upcoming 3G-embedded model is that it lacks A-GPS, a system that combines satellite data with cell-tower triangulation to pinpoint your location, even when you're indoors. That said, the Wi-Fi-only version can still attempt to find where you are using nearby Wi-Fi signals, and I was impressed when my new iPad immediately zeroed in on my apartment, within half a block. Not bad.

9, The iPad makes calls, with a little help from Skype
Yes, Apple had promised that "almost" all iPhone apps would work on the iPad, but I had my doubts about Skype. Today, though, I was finally able to put Skype on the iPad to the test: I loaded it up, logged into my (for-pay) Skype Out account, and dialed 777-FILM. The next thing I heard? "Hello, welcome to Moviefone! If you know the name of the movie you want to see, press one now!" (Of course, this would all be a little more amazing if the iPad had a front-facing camera for video calls.)

10. My iPhone seems really, really small now

After testing the iPad for about an hour or so, I went to check my iPhone for a second and...yikes, what is this tiny little thing? So puny!

Stay tuned for my full iPad review, including my decision on whether to return it or not, early next week. In the meantime...anyone else buy an iPad today? Skipping it?
