The lui cha obsession

t was about two weeks ago, when a friend of mine decided to introduced to me a healthy dish called lui cha.
Lui cha is a peasant dish created in the land of China as a way to make use of the vegetable produce to replace meat dishes that was considered back then luxury items that can be only eaten by upper class citizen like royal or rich families.
The health benefits of the dish is tremendous because of its  content, a good mix of vegetable eaten with a thick broth of green tea and a decent amount of rice for the extra carbohydrate.
Since my first try that afternoon, I learn to love lui cha and I am sure you will too. It a good supplementary diet if you are eating a lot of meat and it is good and detoxifying and cleaning the body.

一路有你 The Journey

路有你 The Journey
Language: Mandarin / Cantonese
Director: Chiu Keng Guan
Release Date: 30 January 2014
Duration: 1 hour 42 minutes
Genre: Drama
Cast: Lee Sai Peng, Ben Andrew Pfeiffer
Plot Summary: Uncle Chuan is an old-fashioned and conservative man. His only hope is to reunite with his only daughter Ah Bee, whom will be returning from overseas after graduation to live together as a traditional family. But plans get twarted when she brings back her foreign boyfriend Benji with her and plans to get married instead. Uncle Chuan tries, but fails to change his daughter’s mind. According to Chinese culture, son-in-law Benji is obliged to deliver the wedding invitations along with his father-in-law. So with no say in the matter, the journey of long distance road travel has put two unwilling men into the hands of the othe

The movie is well paced throughout. The beautiful cinematography is quite a treat to the eyes. You will feel as if you are watching a National Geo Wild documentary. The acting from all of the actors are commendable and is very believable, except for the Ah Bee and Benji dynamic. The director could throw in more confrontational situations and stretch their scenes a little bit more to make their relationship more believable.
Overall good story-line that emphasizes on the importance of family, tradition, respect and friendship. A movie for all.

Chris Miller

Distributed by:
Warner Brothers Picture

Chris Pratt
Will Ferrell
Elizabeth Banks
Will Arnett
Nick Offerman
Alison Brie
Charlie Day

The Lego movie follows the story of Emmet, a unimportant Lego figure that got trusted into saving the world after being mistakenly identified as the one who would save the world from evil President Bussiness.

 My inner child was unleash when I was watching the movie in the cinema. I have to say the movie is quite frantic borderline on manic, but the funny gags and one to punch liners are the saving grace. Not only that, the movie is well crafted, beautiful and vibrant. Highly recommended

annoying tugging lugging

I was minding my own business when a lady come to a stall ordering some food to be taken away to work or whatever it might be.She was decently pretty. She look confident in her get up. As she was ordering some food, I can't help by noticing something that is bugging me for a long time.
I know ladies like to make a statement with their fashion choices. For examples a lady wearing a pair of high heels to gain that extra height or to feel more confident. A short skirt is worn to show off how good one's pair of leg is. Others would slap a dress on because it makes them more feminine and beautiful and the same time.
There is an exception to this. It annoys the hell out of me when a girls seems to be looking uncomfortable when wearing like that in the picture, but is constantly tugging away to hide a modesty, or is hunching on her shoulders when she is supposed to stand tall and proud in those heels.
Why on earth do you need to wear them, when in reality you don't feel comfortable in them. The constant tugging and the awkward steps in those shoes and her hunched shoulders is such a contradiction to the purpose of showing strong will and confidence. It's amusing to see the length women go to look good without taking into consideration comfort.
