Spy Hard

There's nothing better than watching a James Bond spoof in the boring after-workday time in a depressing rainy KK evening. Spy Hard stars Leslie Nelson (I think Steve Martin took over his part after his death) and Nicolette Sheridan (the sultry seductress in Desperate Housewives). It's stupidly funny and reminded me of Stephen Chow. All in all, I had a good laugh!

Congratulations Johnny and Jasmine

Love is patient and kind;
love does not envy or boast,
it is not aroogant or rude.
It does not insists on its own way;
it does not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things
hope all things, endures all things.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three
but the greatest of these is LOVE.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7,13
the service of holy martimony
Congratulations to my friend, Johnny Lim and Jasmine Tan. A nice church wedding indeed.

Wow.... MCA not only Mau Cari Angpau Tapi Manyak Cantik Acting

i think cai gao and sei lai lai have to surrender to these two buggers lah!!!!!! LAUGHABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

StarMovies Show A LOT of Chick Flick

1st of all, no offense for the usage of Chick Flick to describe the movies I watched; it's used in IMDB too.

One of the peril of going outstation is staying in boring hotels, especially if you are staying in small town with nothing much to do; just stay in the room and hope to sleep early. And normally I will rely on the movies shown in the TV channels available in the hotel I stay to either induce my sleep or keep me boredom away.

For the past 2-3 weeks I watched some movies I never watch before and of course, as it's StarMovie channel, you expect to see some re-run . And Thank God it's StarMovies as it will be even worse if the hotel has Cinemax instead.
13 Going 30 (2004)
Helmed by Jennifer Garner in her rare comedic role, this is a pure chick flick. It's fun and entertaining to watch though, I hate to admit. And Mark Ruffalo is definitely going to be typecast as the SNAG (oppss... guess this description is sooo out now!!!). Just watch, laugh and do not think too much.
Sweet Home Alabama (2002)
Tagline : Sometimes What You're Looking For Is Right Where You Left It
Helmed by Reese Witherspoon, this include some notable cast such as Josh Lucas, Patrick Dempsey and Candice Bergen is another enjoyable time filler, that's all. Typical plot.
While She Was Out (2008)
Kim Basinger
She was the only thing notable of this straight-to-DVD-cable-TV movie and it's definitely sad to watch Basinger in this C-flick. I mean, it's Kim Basinger!!!!!!!! I mean, it's Kim Basinger of 9 1/2 Weeks and L.A. Confidential!!!!!!!!!!!
Mermaids (1990)
Cher, Winona Ryder, Christina Ricci
Tagline : This is our mother. Pray for us
I truly enjoyed this movie. Though it was made 19 years ago, it's still feels interesting. Told from the perspective of the character of Winona Ryder, the story revolves around the flamboyant and loud, insecure-being-dumped-by-husband mother played by Cher and her 2 daughter played by Ryder and Christina Ricci respectively.

Cher really shines here. This was the movie after her Oscar-winning turn in Moonstruck in 1987. If Madonna is being labeled as the come-back queen, Cher is another one though keep on having her last concert being held again and again. And in terms of acting skill, she definitely won over Madonna hands down. Winona Ryder was her usual coming-of-age huge eye teen. And Christina Ricci is VERY cute!!! She's like the Abigail Breslin of the 90s.

Huh.... 2 weeks of chick flicks!!!!

Coal Coal Coal.... NOThing can stop the lunatics!!!!!

OK, the coal fired power plant issue showed without doubt how rhetoric the Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan slogan is. No one in the Sabah BN government is interested to know what the citizen (rakyat) think about the whole issue, let alone release informations or at least let the people know what is all about!!!!!!!!!!!
Consider this :
1. Sabah especially the East Coast consists of Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Tawau (where the palm oil "cluster" - the buzz word after the collapse of the corridors...) is having power shortage AGES ago.... since my school time. Blame it on the incompetence of SESB alone is useless.
2. News out that a coal-fired power plant will be built. Why coal? Sabah has coal???? Rumours saying that our government signed a deal for coal to be supplied from Indonesia. How true is this? The train didn't stop here.... If you are concerned about being squeezed by the balls if the supplier decide to increase the price, don't worry... we actually have coal in Sabah!!! where???? Maliau Basin voila!!!!!!!!!! Long live the logging activity!!!!!!!! No more curi-curi like what happen now in the Danum area. How true is this? Well... still rumour..... You decide.
3. Ration on the electricity supply occurs on-and-off.
4. Now an Aluminium smelting plant is in plan in Sabah. Why Aluminium??? Do we have the supply? I thought Sarawak is having the same plant as well??? Oh.... looks like smelter plant is a HUGE electricity consumer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like a 3.0 engine guzzling petrol!!!!!! Why oh why???? Aiya.... you guys still dunno? So, you guys can't resist the power plant loh... cox that's why they have to build Bakun in Sarawak mah!!!!!!! So, are these true???? Again... it's rumour again. You decide!!!!
5. Some say the power plant will be built using a 2nd hand power plant from China. Again... it might be rumours....
6. Come on.. some assemblymen already threatening the rakyat.... "have the power plant, if not, no electricity, don't blame gomen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Of course, maybe their English is worse than this or even if they speak in Bahasa Melayu, it won't be any better as well.
But after all these so-called rumours above and if you are aware of the situation in Sabah now... you should had firmly decide for yourself whether they are rumours......

I Try - Macy Gray

Games, changes and fears

When will they go from here

When will they stop I believe that fate has brought us here

And we should be together

But were not I play it off but I'm dreamin of you

I'll keep it cool but I'm fiendin.

I try to say goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it it's clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

Goodbye and I choke

I try to walk away and I stumble

Though I try to hide it, it's clear

My world crumbles when you are not near

Audacity of Hope

The cliche is that, the higher you hope, the bigger the expectations. Does it mean that we need to discard hope when we want to avoid disappointments?

I remembered Obama had a book called Audacity of Hope. Well, I do not know whether I still have the audacity to hope anymore.

This IS How Parliament in Malaysia Bersidang

Idiot will always remain as an idiot.

Yes, in this case, I am making personal reference and not about what they talk about (in a way, both KTK and OTK are not worth defending, from any angle). These two idiots were definitely treating the August House as their stage for their antics. These are our Parliamentarians (of course.... who can forget the "monthly-leak" performance from our resident clown BMR), for God's sake!

God Bless Malaysia.

All Is Not Rosy and Chirpy in Malaysia.....

Khoo Kay Peng summarised few points on the financial condition of our beloved country and it's a great pain to see the squanderings done to the already-ailing coffers.
