Jet Li is back (WTF took him so long)

Finally ... Jet Li has come back ... to the PEOPLE!

and yeah, he took a freakin long time.
But I'm glad his back.

First of all, GONG XI FA CAI to everyone. Happy Chinese New Year (Not so happy for me, my own MOM just con me RM3 from playing black jack with her.)

Anyways I watched FEARLESS with my family in Ipoh Jusco (also known as KINTA CITY)

My rating ... A- or B+ .... Still not so sure.

The actions are good, very good. Nice cheorography by Yuan Wu Ping. His other works include Wong Fei Hong series and Fong Sai Yuk ... just to name a few. You see, me and a friend of mine have been discussing (or researching) on how to shoot a good action movie, he has his idea, I have mine. To me, more character action, less camera movement. Because I think, if the fella keeps moving around, and so does the camera ... What the heck are the audience going to see @_@ Of course most people do that trick to hide the fact that the actor CAN'T really fight and is faking it.

if you aren't an atheletic type actor, go do something else. If u insist on doing action genre ... go train another few months before you start shooting. And make sure you TRAIN seriously. Don't follow examples like this movie where the hero (an american) MASTERS kung fu in less than 5 seconds and fights of a bunch of bad guy in a virtual world wearing sun glasses and a nice black coat. The movie didnt suck (not the first episode of the trilogy that is), but the actions just get lamer each episode. I rather watch power rangers.

Fearless did a nice job when it comes to action. Not perfect, not super good, but good enough for me. Finally get to see Jet Li's beautiful kung fu moves ... the punches, the kicks, the stop point ... all nicely done. ^_^

Story wise is ok lar ... since it's supposingly base on a real character ... Fok Yuan Jia. He was the founder on Chin Woo association. I remember back in Chin Woo mountain in KL, before every performance we have to pay our respect to him first before we leave, pray that he watch over us and guide us. Being a Christian I don't think he's gonna really gonna come down and bless the performers with super human powers but still the idea of respecting and honoring him is a good chinese tradition that should be passed on.

I honestly think the story telling or the presentation of what the this movie is about isn't that strong. The movie has been cut down to about 1 1/2 hour. I heard from the newspaper that 40 minutes of the original has been cut of, including Michelle Yeoh's appearance totally erased. I personally think that if they didn't cut it, it just might have been MUCH MUCH better.

But anyways good job, it was very meaningful. Young people should really watch it, since it was Jet Li's intention in the first place to target teenagers with this movie. After watching movie, I think I should reconsider about taking back my Kung Fu lessons ...

Screw it, let's play dota. Bye Guys!~

Chinese have an old saying ... Use Kung Fu to meet new Friends (sorry, very lame direct translation...)

I need a hero (Calvin the steady)

I was very inspired by ahkill. So I decided to dedicate a dota hero to a good friend of mine -- CALVIN GOH CHING KHAI. Here it is ....

Calvin the Steady

Penang -- an island off the shore of Kalimdor. There lived a family known as the Steady Gohs. They are powerful and strong, and Calvin was the best of them all. One day the lich king came to the island and took over everything. The Steady Gohs were recruited by the scourge and Calvin made his way to the top ranks. Calvin hopes to carry on the Goh legacy and create a legand for himself. Armed with powerful skills never before seen by anyone, he will prove that he is the steadiest among the steadys.



Traditional home made penang laksa. Instantly restores life

LV1: Small bowl, heals 100 life

LV2: Medium bowl, heals 150 life

LV3: Large bowl, heals 250 life

LV4: Very large bowl, heals 320 life

(A very good skill to replenlish lost life instantly, and it taste good too.)


Calvin tell's the target an unbelieveable teory, stunning the target and deals damage over time.

LV1: An unbelieveable teory. Stun for 1 seconds, 10 damage for 10 seconds

LV2: Very Unbelieveable teory. Stun for 2 seconds, 20 damage for 10 seconds

LV3: Very very unbelieveable teory. Stun for 3 seconds, 30 damage for 10 seconds

LV4: Totally unbelieveable teory. Stun for 4 seconds, 40 damage for 10 seconds

(a very very powerful skill. Please watch out.)


Calvin's very own toy. He will ride in it and charge at the target at top speed. Dealing massive damage but killing himself at the same time.

LV1: 140 km/h (Fast). 400 damage

LV2: 180 km/h (Very fast). 800 damage

LV3: 210 km/h (Super fast). 1200 damage

LV4: 300 km/h (WTF!). 1600 damage

(A mix between spirit breaker's Charge of darkness and goblin techies's suicide.)


Calvin the steady's super ultimate -- a very powerful aura. Allies within the aura range will recieve bonus health recovery, extra armour and a chance to maim enemy. (passive)

LV1: 100 AOE. little health recovery, extra 5 armour and 10% chance maim

LV2: 300 AOE. Medium health recovery, extra 10 armour and 20% chance maim

LV3: 600 AOE. Super health recovery, extra 15 armour and 30% chance maim

(this skill is a bit palia, hahahahahahaha .......)

Thats all folks, hope u enjoy. Drop some comments if u like ^^

Bye guys!~

Good local movie cannot go pass 3 years

There is an old saying, "Wealth cannot pass 3 generation", that is what the movie "The 3rd Generation" is about ... or so I thought.

Today me and my friends, Edmund and Cheng en, went to catch a movie in GSC, One Utama.

No we did not watch Geisha (or GAYsha if u prefer), we also did not have special privallage to watch FEARLESS.

Instead we went to watch a chinese local film, The 3rd Generation. Starring Nicholas Teo, Amber Chia, Carmen Soo and some other local artist (forgot their name). Directed by CL Hor

My personal review about it? You just need to know 2 facts: People already started to leave the cinema in less than 30 minutes, and the only word that came out of my mouth was "WTF!!!!"

Perhaps I shall try my best to list down the good things in the movie, since I am such a nice guy.

1. It has good motion graphic. Forgot which production studio did it, something like kilopo or kiloko or keropi ... whatever.

2. The Art Director did a good job. Props and settings are very nice. Makes me really feel like the good old days. (By the way the story was said to set in the 1970's Penang)

3. Director of photography also did a good job. some camera angles and scenes were taken nicely.

4. Music is also not bad.

5. I like the fella that played the role of the father. A veteran actor, forgot his name.

If u are now thinking "hey, sounds not bad" THINK again, and AGAIN.

I have to use super human psychic power to actually TRY and understand what the story is about, or at least WHAT is happening at the moment.

Most beh tahan part: All of a sudden "3 months later" text appear (WTF happen 3 months before??) and in around 10 minutes "3 weeks later" text appear (I still have no idea what happened) and suddenly "1 DAY before" text apears (I was already OVER the limit but still hanging on) AND finally "1 DAY after" text appears (WTF!!)

If u are clueless to what I am saying ... SO AM I. I have completely no idea what was going in back there. Perhaps I can explain to you if u ask me personally but it will drain my brain of all its resources.

Another thing, in the movie Charlie (Nicholas Teo) is a graduate from an UK university while LINDA (Carmen Soo) started out as a bar lady but with hard work and dedication she became a good secretary for Charlie. My point is both character are suppose to be consider SMART people, or at least NORMAL people. But do you know how they talk when speaking to each other??

Charlie: You .....
Linda: Me ......
Charlie: Why don't we .......
Linda: As you like .....

They ended up eating Chow Koay Teow (I think so) in a stall by the road side.

WTF!!! By the tone of their voice they sound like RETARDS. Although Charlie and Linda are suppose to have an affair, I never seen them hold hands or even slightly touch each other except when dancing (one dance is actually Linda's dream, and another dance is a formal dinner dance where alot of people including Charlie's wife and father are present.)

CARMEN SOO IS HOT, at least DO something MORE with her lar! Maybe Linda and Charlie and at least hug each other or AT least try some MINOR kissing (I'm not asking for some tongue action, but at least SOMETHING). With such a good ASSET in your production, make full use of her lar! Even do something more with Amber Chia lar for god sake. Dun waste earth's resources.

Haih ... I also sien diao, nothing to say. I was OK with Puteri Gunung Ledang (2004), I very love SEPET (2005), But when it comes to The 3rd Generation (2006) ... I rather watch TWINS EFFECT, at least the 2 idiots are abit more entertaining.

Going to sleep, Bye guys!~

PS: If u manage to watch the movie or are planning to go ... try counting how many times the word 3 was mentioned in the movie.

Behind every succesful man is a woman ... actually I think need 2.

Between Assignments and Dota (and some Chicken Rice)

Its been weeks since my last post. Been very busy this few days with assignments and all. I didn't notice until my friend said it, I've been watching sunrise everyday since new year. All thanks Assignments ... Dota .... and bit of chicken rice.

I recommend everyone to visit this. All dota players shall witness the birth of a new dota hero ... haha ....

Another nice blog to read is this. A very meaningful blog coming from a very wrong person ... haha .... just kidding.

Seems like a storm is going to hit the blogging community ... better watch out.

By the way, there is this nice Chicken Rice Stall in Dengkil I am dying to introduce. I guess those who know me already know about it :P

It opens around 4am in the morning (sometimes 3am) if he wakes up. He sells Roasted Chicken and Steam Chicken, but no Char Siew and Roast Pork. Around 5am he will start selling some extra stuff like noodles and beehoon along with other special food, such as the rare Zhu Tou Pi (Pork Head Skin), very very nice to eat. (The more I write the hungrier I get, so I better stop before i starve to death)

Had a chat with an old friend yesteday. 3 of us sat in mamak in Sea Park and start to talk about many things. From opening company to blog wars ... haha... The opening company thing is still under developement and won't be talking much about it. But the blog war thing is really very lame. From what my friend told me, famous or star bloggers and being divided into groups/gangs and cutting each others throat. Recently I even heard a Brotherhood of dunno-wat-shit has been formed. Is there anywhere in the world where politics doesnt exist .... (But then again, its people like me that enjoy watching 2 sides fight while I slowly take advantage of the situation ... hehehe ....)

Just watched corpse bride recently, I think its a very nice show, definitely worth watching. in fact I think its 10x much better than chicken little. I'm not saying the chicken sucks, but the bride was just much better.

Feeling hungry ... must look ... for .... more ... chicken rice ....
Bye Guys!~

With this hand I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never be empty, for I will be your wine. With this candle, I will light your way into darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine.
