Carlsberg brings Malaysia's Own Octoberfest 2012!

No comments :

Ah the sweet month of October never fails to amaze me with one of the biggest beer festival of the year, unlike other celebrations, the Octoberfest is an "All beer are welcome" celebration.

The catch to it? YOU MUST HAVE AN AWESOME GOOD TIME.

Dashed into the heart of the City at the Hakka Restaurant right opposite the iconic Pavillion, the launch of Octoberfest 2012 by Carlsberg was to be a unique one!

"East meets West" sprinkling in some local flavors into a well known German festival, sparked the interest of the many attendees of the night and the menu of the night were servings after servings of great beer food! XD

Hotel Transylvania Movie Review 2012

2 comments :



What's it about:
 Take a ride to hotel for monsters, built by the legendary Count Dracuala to help keep his daughter away from harm and for monsters to come for vacation and relax.No human comes here untill a boy name johnny and comes and sort of turn things to be a little bit different.


What I would say about it:

Adam Sandler and his regular mates acted as voices for the animated characters and Adam really did a good job as the Dracula!

It came out as a pretty decent animated film that follows a very boring but safe story line that many will be able to enjoy. 

Rather then sitting the whole time being skeptical about it because of it's animation, the film had some pretty spot on jokes but there were some misses as well.

Working on such a big premise I am actually surprise they did not gave time for the audience to know each of the unique monsters. If you are not a monster movie fan, you might not catch some of the monster behaviour very well mainly the gremlin mama

The creature designs were good and had a lot of personal touch to it, creative and smart I would say. 

The film was predictable and one lined but it still had it's engaging moments.

The soundtrack was pretty clubbish, blending in modern music for some beats. 

Colorful characters that you wanted to watch more of and good humor and some parts gave the movie a higher chance of living.


Rating: 2.5/5

"A fun family movie that reminds you of a lighter version of the Addam's Family, Kids will be more than happy to enjoy this film. Spin offs seem to be highly possible as well! -Benjaminfoo.com

Tokyo Storms Kuala Lumpur At Club Asahi's Take Off Party thanks to Asahi Malaysia

No comments :
When I first spotted the title it already blew me away, as many of you already know that my main weakness is this epic Japan fan boy inside of me always screaming and shouting over anything that is made in Japan or coming from Japan. (This includes almost anything Japan)

Super thrilled over this event, with the serving of Asahi Super Dry guaranteed.

I was already waiting for next week to come faster! Here is how the poster looks like in conjunction with the event.


Asahi Super Dry, Japan’s No.1 beer worldwide gears up to hit the streets of Kuala Lumpur by bringing Japan’s finest here.

With a superb run since its launch, Asahi Super Dry raises the bar again and takes it up a notch by introducing its latest offering, Club Asahi. 

Leading the clubbing scene into the next dimension, Club Asahi is pulling out all the stops and offering clubbers a new, unique platform to be entertained, be inspired and be in the forefront in igniting endless possibilities.


Through Club Asahi Tokyo, party goers can expect to be blown away with show-stopping acts the likes of Japan’s No.1 DJ, all-girl dance troupe sensation, and other phenomenal elements that are guaranteed to keep party buffs on their toes.



Headlining the first instalment of Club Asahi is Japan’s top DJ, Shinichi Osawa. Reigning in the clubbing scene for over 10 years now, Osawa provides a hypnotic array of electro, house and techno beats. In 2009 Shinichi's 'The One' album sold over 150,000 units in Japan and was subsequently released in Europe by Southern Fried Records. One of the most sought after DJs of the 21st century, the electro wizard is geared to challenge punters to an insane beats-fest that will have them heaving on the dance floor.


Joining Shinichi on stage are the infamous CyberJapan Dancers.

Made up of fire dancers, pole dancers and a host of other flexible pirouette moves, the extravagant troupe entertains fans with their fancy footwork and sultry moves. A sensational showmanship of spins and shimmies, these ladies have busted moves with international well-known artists such as Tim Deluxe, Pete Tong and many others.

These girls seem very scary to me, what the heck is a fire dance @.@. 


Malaysia on the other hand will be represented by the notorious Bass Agents and B.A.T.E. The double acts’ raw energy and show-stealing fists-in-the-air sets is not by accident. Proving to be real masters in what they do, they have since written a new chapter in the Bass Agents trajectory amassing several self-produced releases to push their unique sound forward.

Club Asahi event takes place at the Butterfactory, KL on October 4, from 8.30pm onwards

So remember to head on to https://www.facebook.com/AsahiMalaysia for more info

and I will see you there!

Bait 3D Movie Review 2012

1 comment :



What's it about:
A random Tsunami kick starts the movie in style, swallowing the entire beach side along with a supermarket nearby, killing many by drowning and accidental deaths.

A group of survivors who are now trapped inside the supermarket with the water slowly rising must not find a way to escape but swimming isn't an option because there is something else that got swept in with the sea water.


What I would say about it:

Circling around a premise where you have trapped victims that face drowning and being eaten by shark isn't something creative or even original.

There were too many characters being introduced in the movie, a heart broken couple, a thieving gf + a good guy bf, A cop father, a pair of thugs with one being forced to rob the super market, some supermarket employees and a blond couple and their Pomeranian who miraculously survived the whole thing. The most dysfunctional character in one place but apparently they are quite smart when it comes to Great white Sharks

As the movie moves forward, you will start to realize are all these people necessary? Who are all these people? Why don't i know anything about them at all? 

Den you start to wonder, how the hell would they accurately guessed that it was a 12 feet great white shark circling around them, how come the two asians, a latino guard + the real crazy bad guy dies? I didn't even feel sorry for them. Their deaths weren't even thrilling. 

*chomp* Shark shaking with meat around* next scene.

Amazingly, they managed to chuck 2 love stories and a family moral story into this. So many things left unexplained, unrefined and neglected. 

Why would the supermarket be flooded if they were on flat grown, some may argue that it was an underground supermarket by the beach which seems like a very ugly way to sum it up. 

The actors showed little emotion about imminent death and seem confident that they wont die, jumping in and out of the water like a kiddy pool -_-. 

If you really want to watch this i suggest to download it and the 3D is not even there!

Here is the most epic scene of the whole movie that left everyone face palming.
The shark had no chance with a waterproof shotgun, and trust me the scene before this picture was more epic.

Rating: 0.5/5 (they had nice gore props*

"It's about time you spend sometime at home with your family instead of watching this heroic film about killing sharks,this genre is gone ady!"

The release of the iPhone5

4 comments :

After much hype and anticipation, Apple finally announced their latest flagship mobile device and it will be named iPhone 5. 

Not much of surprise to the naming as globally everyone already assumed that would be it's name.

So we are now looking at a bigger,smarter, faster and a much more unique phone. As the buzz generated by the announce was deafening on the twitter sphere, I tried my best to lower the skepticism I have for the new device.

Resident Evil : Retribution 2012

3 comments :



What's it about:
You wake up one day to your loving family and life and suddenly a flesh eating human barges in with it's friends and tries to eat you up.

You then wake up again to find yourself in a high tech lab made to test virus on humans as biological weapons. 

Seems familiar? Resident Evil : Retribution revisits the other 4 franchise and brought into one film that had most of it's settings and the return of their characters in proper game character costumes. 

See Alice run around trying to escape the facility once again while being hunted down by humans and virus infected humans sent by the dreaded Red Queen.

A Malaysian pledge, the celebration of Teh Tarik.

No comments :

I think it's pretty safe to say that all of us have drank Teh Tarik at least once in our lives, surprisingly it's origin may not be from Malaysia but it has been absorbed into our culture and we have successfully made it into a drink like no other. 

Using the finest Lipton tea blended with the right amount of condensed milk and poured repeatedly from one container to another with much accuracy and skills. The Teh Tarik is a drink that gives out a smooth creamy texture topped with the aromatic smell of tea.

I've decided to not do chronological blog posts of my trip to Taiwan. Instead, it will be random and I will try to be as interesting as I can :).

But since this is my first of many, just an update of my trip. I went to Taipei,Taiwan from 30th Aug to 2nd Sep 2012 and it was my first trip overseas ( did not even visit to Singapore)

You can say that I was like a Jakun ( someone who gets excited over the smallest things), forgive me for that!
