Celebrating Aidilfitri

For me there is nothing special than celebrating Hari Raye. Well ofcourse u got to eat a lot of food, cakes, and cookies. This time i managed to taste Rendang Itik, Rendang Burung Puyoh, Rendang Daging and Rendang Ayam. Well that's only about the rendang. What about others? As usual my mom will made Lontong, Sambal Sotong and Sambal Jawa. Yum so delicious. Okay, but the dish is still incomplete without ketupat and lemang.

Yeah enough about food. Actually the first raye is really entertaining because of a lot of food that i can choose to eat. But what happen during the night? Hehe i don't know about others but I've got stomach ache and diarrhea. I don't know why? Maybe because i drank a lot of carbonated drinks. It was no fun at all. well it's okay because on the next day; i still can eat. Yeah! Makan time.

By the way u know, Hari Raye is not just about food and Duit Raye. Most importantly it's about visiting your relatives. No matter how far they live or what kind of house they live. But to be honest sometimes i barely know my own relatives, especially those who i rarely met. So what am i suppose to do. Emm! Well, first is ofcourse to greet them (Assalamualaikum), second is to Salam them and everybody in the house, third is to always smile and answer all their question. The usual question is ( Ni anak Bibah eh, oii dah besar dah) Hehe.. Fourth is to eat and drink . Five is to salam and send back the plate or any cup to the kitchen and wash it, although most of the time they will say no need to do that. Ok that is what i usually do. I hope it works.

Okay what more about Hari Raye. Beside from i got to ask an apologize or beg for forgiveness from both of my parents, grandma, uncle and auntie. I also got to enjoy playing firecrackers. You name it i dare to play all sorts of firecrackers. Although it is illegal, but without it my raye is almost meaningless. Well may i list what kind of mercun that i play. okay, mercun KLCC, thunder bomb, thunder king, thunder clap, mercun roket, mercun mancis, mercun ketupat, mercun bola, mercun das, gasing, lebah, mercun telur naga and lots more. What about Bunga api? Well, it's for babies and nothing adventurous about it.hehe.. Okay that is all from me. Ciao...

Superhero! What's so special about them?

This are top 4 superhero that i list out, which i think, so far is the best and powerful among others superhero. Moreover their story is really catchy and interesting. And ofcourse the adaptation from its comic to film had been so successful. For example most of them make it to box office.

4) Superman
"The Man of Steel"
As you know the power that he possess are flight, super-strength, invulnerability to attacks, super-speed, vision powers, super-hearing, and super-breath, which enables him to blow out air at freezing temperatures. So he have it all the "super" thingy. The only one thing that he will need is secret identity, and so Clark Kent act as Superman's secret identity. Which had a opposite character from Superman; nerd, clumsy, weak and so on. This are the list of the Superman film series, first is Superman, second is Superman II, third is Superman III, and fourth is Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. The new version of Superman is Superman Returns. Also the tv series for superman is Smallville. I bet many of you watch it. The dialog that i like in Superman Return is:
a. Superman: I hear everything. You wrote that the world doesn't need a savior. But everyday I hear people crying for one.
b. You will be different. Sometimes, you will feel like an outcast, but you will never be alone. You will make my strength your own. You will see my life through your eyes as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father, and the father becomes the son.

3) Spiderman
From Spider-Man to Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. I love them all. As a matter of fact everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And years later, they'll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them how to hold on a second longer. I believe there's a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams (May Parker). The quote that i like is "With great power comes great responsibility".

2) Ironman
Iron Man is a Marvel comic book superhero. It is a story about a person name Tony Stark, who is a billionaire and master engineer who builds a powered exoskeleton and becomes the technologically advanced superhero, Iron Man; eventually. I love the way Robert Downey Jr. play his character. Its really "sempoi and bersahaja". Also there is no other superhero like ironman. For example we could take a look at spiderman, his life is so miserable, because he can not tell anyone about his super hero ability, also he is poor and have to balance between studies, work, and saving life. If i were him, i would probably go to mental institution. But, it is different for Iron man . He is rich and do not want to hide his identity. And he is happy as always. This are the quote that i like:
a. Sometimes you've gotta run before you can walk.(Tony Stark/Iron Man)
b. If I were Iron Man, I'd have this girlfriend who knew my true identity. She'd be a wreck. She'd always be worrying I was going to die, yet so proud of the man I've become. She'd be wildly conflicted, which would only make her more crazy about me. (Tony Stark/Iron Man)

1) Batman
As a child, Bruce Wayne saw his parents killed by a criminal. And so, he vows to avenge their deaths in a lifelong battle against crime as the disguise of Batman while concealing his secret identity, working in the Wayne Enterprises. There are many Batman film and actor who plays as Batman, but for me one of the best actor is Michael Keaton in Batman (1989) and Batman return. Maybe because sometimes less is more, and i love simplicity. Don't get me wrong i like christian bale act as Batman in Batman Begin and Batman Dark Knight but somehow something is missing and i don't know what. This are the quote from Batman : Dark knight.
a. (Harvey Dent) "You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain."
b. I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger. (joker)
c. How 'bout a magic trick? [slams a pencil into the table standing upright] I'm gonna make this pencil disappear. [he slams the man's head into the pencil, forcing the entire pencil through his eye socket] Ta-da! It's... [Turns to the men in the room] gone. (Joker)
d. If you're good at something, never do it for free.(Joker)
e. "Let's put a smile on that face!" And... why so serious? (Joker)
f. Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the… little… emotions. You see, in their… last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way...I knew your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards? (Joker)
g. Do I really look like a guy with a plan? you know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it! You know... I just do things.(Joker)
h. Gordon: Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

I'm still watching it!

I am really eager to watch great movies whenever I've got time. Recently i managed to watch a very unique movie entitle '21'. I watch it on Astro and it was a story about a college student who gamble using an intelligent formula and tricks to play in casino Las Vegas. So back to the topic; here are the top 5 list of the greatest movie that i kept on watching it without even felt bored.

5) Back to the future
Tagline: Meet Marty McFly. He's broken the time barrier. Busted his parents' first date. And, maybe, botched his chances of ever being born.

From "Back to the future 1 to "Back to the future 3". I love them all. But for me the best is no 1. Incase if u have not even heard about it. It is a story about a weird scientist "Doc" who invent a time-machine using a car. And ofcourse there comes a teenage "Marty" play by "Michael J.Fox" by the way he is such a great actor; who is the only Doc best friend who get involve with his science project. Then, while Doc was testing his time-machine for the first time, he was attack by a terrorist and accidentally Marty was send back to the year 1950. To make it even worse he had disturbed the time-continuum. Marty's mother (younger version) fall in love with him, instead of his father. And this cause him in grave danger. Because if his mother did not marry to his father; then Marty will never ever exist. So the story goes on..What i like about this movie is that; it is packed with humour, action, and a little bit of love. The scene that i like is
a. When somebody called Marty "chicken", he will turn back and prove them wrong. But ofcourse this cause him trouble.
b. The weirdness and clumsiness of "Doc" such as always over excited in something and making facial expression.
c. When "Biff" say Hello, is there anybody home, think Mcfly, think. with knocking on the guy's head.
d. Whenever Marty having trouble with Biff and always Biff will end up by bumping it shit or manure

4) Terminator
Tagline: Ten years ago the machines who rule the future sent an unstoppable Terminator to assassinate the yet unborn John Connor. They failed. In 1991, the machines will try again.

You already know right that there are 4 part of Terminator. Do You? Come on, be honest. Hehe.. If you don't know, then allow me to tell you. First is "Terminator 1" second is Terminator 2:Judgement day, third is "Terminator 3: Rise of the machine" and fourth is "Terminator Salvation". Also there is a television series call "The chronicles of Sarah Connor". Basically it is a story about machines who control the world by destroying and killing all humans; For me the best terminator movie is no 2; which is The Judgement Day. Why is that? Maybe it is because of the story line. First it is because Arnold the good terminator who need to protect John Connor (the teenage version). Second is because the battle between The good terminator versus the bad terminator. and etc. These are one of the quote that i like
a. "The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves."
b. Hasta la vista, baby
c. Dialog:
Sarah: Keep it under sixty-five. We don't want to be pulled over.
Terminator: Affirmative.
John: No, no, no, no, no. You gotta listen to the way people talk. You don't say "affirmative" or some shit like that. You say, "No problemo." And if someone comes off to you with an attitude, you say "eat me." And if you wanna shine them on, it's "Hasta la vista, baby."
Terminator: Hasta la vista, baby.
John: Yeah; "later, dickwad." Or if someone gets upset, you say "chill out." Or you can do combinations.
Terminator: Chill out. Dickwad.
John: That's great! See, you're getting it.
Terminator: No problemo.

3) Star Wars
Taglines: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Sci-fi! Who don't like it? This is one of the coolest and the best sci-fi of all time. In this movie; the events in Star Wars setting take place in a fictional galaxy. There are many species of alien creatures, robotic droids, Space travel and numerous planets in the galaxy. Actually, there are 6 parts as for overall; first is "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace", second is "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones", third is "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith", fourth is "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope", fifth is "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" and the last one, sixth is "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi". From my point of view i think the third Star Wars is the best. Simply because this is the story of how Darth Vader rise from a Jedi to a sith lord. Moreover Darth Vader is the main character of all time. It is he who makes the story interesting. So here are one's of the quote that i like:
a. You were the Chosen One! It was said you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!(Obi Wan)
b. If one is to understand the great mystery, one must study all its aspects, not just the dogmatic, narrow view of the Jedi. If you wish to become a complete and wise leader, you must embrace a larger view of the Force.(Darth Sidious)
c. Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them, do not. Miss them, do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is. (Master Yoda)
d. Dialog:
Obi-Wan Kenobi: It's over, Anakin! I have the high ground!
Darth Vader: You underestimate my power!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Don't try it.
[Obi-Wan Kenobi has cut off Vader's legs and part of his remaining good arm on one of Mustafar's higher grounds. Vader is struggling near the lava river]
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them...Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness! [He picks up Anakin Skywalker's light saber]
Darth Vader: I HATE YOU!
Obi-Wan Kenobi: You were my brother, Anakin. I loved you!
[Vader, now too close to the lava river, catches on fire. Obi-Wan leaves]

2) Transformers
Taglines: Before time began, there was...the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time we lived in harmony, but like all great power, some wanted it for good...others for evil. And so, began the war. A war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed by death. And the Cube was lost to the far reaches of space. We scattered across the galaxy, hoping to find it and rebuild our home. Searching every star, every world. And just when all hope seemed lost, message of a new discovery drew us to an unknown planet called...Earth. But we were already too late.

I think almost everybody know Transformer. Even though sometimes you don't even understand what is the story all about because it might be so confusing. Whatever it is most of us like the action scene. Which is the core part for this film. So basically; the story goes like this, Shia LaBeouf play as Sam Witwicky, is a teenager who accidently get involved in a war between the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons (the villant), the alien robots can disguise themselves by transforming into everyday machinery such as cars, planes, tank and etc. So now there are already two of the movie. First is "Transformers" and second is 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". So far i think no 2 is very entertaining. Shia can pull off this movie, he is full of a sense of humour and have a connection with his heroin. And yeah, Megan Fox is so Hot. So this is the quote that i like;
a. [negotiating with his teacher for a better grade] Sir, look outside. Do you see that man sitting in the green car? That's my dad. Let me tell you a story about a dream, a boy's dream and a man's promise to that boy: he looked at me in the eye and said, "Son, I'm gonna buy you a car, but I want you to bring me two thousand dollars and three A's." I already have the two thousand and two A's. [holds his hands up in a circle] Here's the dream. Your B minus? [mimes the circle exploding] Poof! Dream gone. Ka-put. Now ask yourself...What would Jesus do?
b. [seeing his car transform for the first time] Oh my God... [talking into phone] My name is Sam Witwicky. Whoever finds this, my car is alive, okay. [holds up phone briefly to show Bumblebee] You see all that? If these are my last words on Earth, I just want to say that Mom, Dad, I love you and if you find Busty Beauties under my bed, it wasn't mine, I'm holding it for Miles. No, no, wait that's—Okay, that's not true. It's mine; Uncle Charles gave it to me. I'm sorry. Mojo, I love you.
c. Dialog:
Jetfire: What planet am I on?
Sam Witwicky: Earth.
Jetfire: "Earth?" Terrible name for a planet. Might as well call it "Dirt". Planet Dirt, tell me is that robot civil war still going on? who's winning?
Sam Witwicky: Decepticons.
Jetfire: Well, I changed sides to the Autobots.
Sam Witwicky: Wait, changed sides ?What do you mean changed sides?
Jetfire: It's a choice it's a percetlly personal choice, who wants to live a life full of hate, all the negativity.

1) The Lord of The Rings

Taglines: One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

I watched this movie almost 30th times atleast. Okay right, this triology movie is consist of 3 part. First is "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring"; second is "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" and last is "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King". To be honest for part 1 i watch at the TGV cinema KLCC twice, then the second part also twice, and the third part, i watch it twice in the cinemas. I still rememeber when buying the ticket to watch this movie at KLCC. There are a lot of boundaries. The first day of it relase my sister and i went to TGV KLCC early in the morning and saw that a lot of people are already there. It was almost 9.15am, and the door is still not open. So we wait. Minute by minute people were start to pouring in and finally at 10.00am the door starts to open. " pintu dier, yg mcm kt kedai runcit nye tu, yg start bukak dari bawah ke atas". So once the door start to open everybody start to push each others and run to the ticket counter. It was a mess and we all looks and act like a sheep wanting to "masuk kandang". And what do you know. I managed to buy the ticket but sad things to say i've got the front row. But it was worth it because we are one of the millions of Malaysian who watch The first day of The Lord Of The Rings: The two Tower in the movie.
So even after watching it at the movie, i still bought the VCD and watch is numorously. Also if Astro screen it on TV, i will stick to the Telly and watch it. I am a LOTR fanatic. I even bought all the books and magazine that have any info about LOTR. There are no other movies that give a great impact to me. Eventhough until now.
So what i like about LOTR is first, very different from other movies, second the scenery of the movie background is so beautiful, third is ofcourse the battle, fourth is the ancient life of the story about kings and the kingdom. and many more. So here are the quotes that i like
a. Gollum: It came to me. My own, my love, my own, my... preccciouss... Gollum!
b. Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times; but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
c. There can be no triumph without loss. No victory without suffering. No freedom without sacrifice.
d. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth.
