Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian ..a review

When was the last time you went to a museum.. you know the place where they keep "yesterday" for "tomorrow" to see. I bet on my shrunked butt that it was when you were still in primary school..(ohh..those innocent wide eyed children ?) And if you think much would have changed since then; dont worry atleast where National Museum is concerned "it is a museum piece of frozen antique itself"

Can someone who is close to the museum boys, tell them that a museum doesn't have to look like a haunted house which had been evacuavated by the devil himself. My niece and nephews almost fainted out of boredom when i took them there..and the youngest one threaten to jump out of a moving car if I ever mention the place.. again

Ohhh.. about the movie...
I dont like this movie.. Talking about bad sequels..nope Im not talking about Rosmah Mansor's sequel ( for those uninformed : Najib is Rosmah's second husband, so he is a sequel of some sort.)..ok i digress..

I loved the first one, I don't understand why directors follow up with a sequel of a great film with such mediocrity. I suppose they already have an audience hooked and intrigued so they think they dont have to try harder the second time around.

You know what. watching this movie reminds me of our Perak fiasco. The muzium ( Assembly House) is divided and on one side all the bad guys,(you know who they are as they likened themselves to Mandela and Gandhi) and the oppressed good guys are on the other side.

I felt like most of the characters were over acting and worst of all the jokes felt so predictable, obvious and forced. Punch line after punch line kept rolling and literally nobody in the theatre was laughing. (Now doesn't that wee bit too familiar).
I know the first one was great but don't waste your hard earned money on this one.

Police raid on DAP Hqrs as if DAP is a terrorist organization

(This was taken from Lim Kit Siang's Blog)

The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak should apologise for what five previous Prime Ministers had not done in the 43 year history of the DAP – police raid on DAP Hqrs as if the DAP is a terrorist organization like Al Maunah.

Why has Najib, who had committed himself to an open and democratic premiership only seven weeks ago, allowed the police to go on a rampage to the extent of doing things which the previous five Prime Ministers had not allowed the police to do for 43 years – a police raid on DAP Hqrs as if the DAP is a terrorist organization like Al Maunah.

The question many are asking is whether with Najib as Prime Minister and Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as Home Minister, the cousins are taking the country quickly down the slippery slope of a police state, where the rule of law and human rights are trampled upon indiscriminately without any compunction.
My take : Police should not be overzealous in handling things like this. I hope they use their resources, time and talent to hunt down snatch thieves and mat rempits.. instead catching people for holding candles and wearing certain colours.

I Am Not Power Crazy...

"I am not power crazy " says the all powerful man.. I'm not going to mention any names here..but all of you will have a good idea,who is it after reading the rebutal piece from Rashid which appeared in Malaysia Today.

He says he is not power crazy but this is what he does for power

1. Kills a pregnant woman in the most gruesome manner in order to reach Putrajaya

2. Invents the most calumnious claims against his political opponents (DSAI's sodomy)

3. Abducts elected legislators (Perak PKR duo) using state institution (The special branch)

4. Muzzles the media over his shenanigans and unending crimes and shameful career.

5. Bribes elected leaders with millions stolen from public coffers

6. Destroys state institutions in order to retain power

7. Destroys the nation's fabric for petty ends and momentary survival

8. Destroys the Malay Royalty as he misuses it for partisan ends

9. Refuses to face the people he purports to lead (Have you ever seen such a coward?)

10. Detains poor people wearing their own choice of clothes. (fear, fear of fear)

11. Lies through his teeth and pretends that the people are as stupid as his cronies

12. The most hated political figure in the nation is how he is rewarded for being "less power crazy". Don't you like it?

13. Destroys Perak's economy to face save and run from Perakians. But he is not power crazy. Moron!

14. Appoints Lingam appointed judges to facilitate his evil, yet he claims to have less craze for power. Shame on you ......

15. Stifles the media and denies them permission on reporting on nationa matters. He thinks he owns the nation. Not power crazy?

Mixed reactions to BN pullout

BN pulled out of Penanti by election and that had reflected badly on Najib's ability to stand up for a good fight. Our wise and learned Prime Minister should state that by election of this nature is a waste of public fund. Why?

If one can remember this name "Dato Haji Abu Hassan" then he/she will be able to recall what the powerful BN did in Kuala Selangor to make him as the menteri besar of Selangor.

Yes, they asked him to resign his MP post and another adun had to do the same so that by election can held to make him as menteri besar..

Hmmm..well wasn't that was wasting money..and that did not happen 500 years ago for us to forget...

We Are The Champion

This is the greatest team in the world...! Any complain?
Manchester United won the Premier League for the third straight season Saturday after a 0-0 tie with Arsenal.
United needed a point to clinch a record-equaling 18th title. The draw at Old Trafford put the championship out of reach for second-place Liverpool, which is seven points behind with two games left.
“Thankfully, we got the job done today,” striker Wayne Rooney said. “The last few years have been unbelievable.”
United has won 11 Premier League titles in the last 17 seasons under manager Alex Ferguson and is tied with Liverpool with 18 on the list of English league champions.
“I never thought we could get 11 titles—never in a million years,” Ferguson said.
After a lackluster game, the final whistle set off a massive celebration. The team was presented with the Premier League trophy on the field, with the players hugging and spraying champagne.
Ferguson has 25 major trophies since he arrived at the club in 1986 and hopes to make it 26 when United faces Barcelona in the Champions League final May 27 in Rome.
“It makes you want to go on forever,” said the 67-year-old Scot, who has no plans to retire anytime soon.
The trophy was carried onto the field by four soldiers who returned from a four-month tour of duty in Afghanistan. As the medals were presented and fireworks exploded, the rain that had lashed the field all game cleared and Old Trafford was bathed in sunshine.
Ryan Giggs has been part of United’s team for each of its 11 Premier League triumphs masterminded by Ferguson since the 1992-3 season.
“It’s been a special time at the club since the manager took over and we’ve managed to win so much,” Giggs said. “Hopefully we can carry on.”
The title is the eighth for 34-year-old defender Gary Neville.
“I think it’s a fantastic achievement,” said Neville, adding that Liverpool’s challenge helped focus the champions. “They pushed us really hard this season. Next season, we’ve got our work cut out to go and do it again.”
Powered this season by goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and top performances from strikers Rooney and Carlos Tevez, United also had a rock-solid defense. Goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar set a British record by going 1,311 minutes without conceding a goal.
United withstood a shaky stretch in April, losing 4-1 at home to Liverpool and 2-0 at Fulham. Then came a winning streak that pushed the club ahead of rival Liverpool.

Dating Tips: 5 Easy Ways to Make Men Smile

I got this from yahoo, written by dating blogger Ryan Dodge for Glamour. But actually, its not all that difficult to make this species called man; smile. You know it and i know it and any man and his dog can write on this.. ( my comments are in brackets)

#1: Touch His Arm
There are a lot of ways to subtly let a guy know you're into him, like maintaining eye contact, playing with your hair, and smiling a lot. But the only one that sends shivers down my spine is when a girl touches my arm during conversation. It always surprises me, and it's always great.( Well i wish they touch my ...... and put a big great satanic smile on my face. Hey guys be sure you fellas are with me on this one)

#2: Send Him a Random Text Message in Midday.
OK, this might not be free depending on your cell phone plan, but it's still a great value. Nothing breaks the monotony of a long workday like a flirty note from someone special, and unless his job is super-intense he'll have plenty of time to daydream about you. ( You must be kidding, flirty sms..? when you keep getting it from several different sources..its absolute luck that one don't get mixed up.. and have a great war )

#3: Ask Him a Question About Something He Knows a Lot About
Dating news flash: Guys like to show off for you. So if your dude could use an ego boost, there's nothing like letting him feel like an expert. Ask him about fishing, the 1983 Chicago White Sox, or the mating habits of the Guyanese Bullfinches -- whatever he's into. Just remember to nod frequently and look really interested. ( Hey dude, animal mating..? gross..We guys are more interested in our own mating habits and skills..Lets discover that..and put a great demonic smile on man)

#4: Give Him a Very Specific Compliment
Telling a guy he's funny, handsome, or smart is always appreciated, but the really
meaningful compliments are the ones that reveal how well you know him.
meaningful compliments are the ones that reveal how well you know him. Something like "I love the way your face scrunches up when you're doing the crossword puzzle" or "You have the most manly calves I've ever seen."( Holy cow. you must be from a planet that USS Enterprise just went, we all know what a guy likes to hear right.. its definitely not "face scrunches up"..but..something else moving in that direction..he..he..)

#5: Send Him the Diary Entry You Wrote After Your First Date -- or Write One Now
One of the best things about having a girlfriend is reminiscing about what you thought about each other in the beginning of your relationship. Reliving all of the uncertainty and anxiety is strangely exhilarating. I can't think of a better anniversary present than a sanctioned peek into the documented thoughts of someone I care about. ( You gonna get me killed..dude. First will be "jerk" written all over and you want her to show me.. May thats what she should do if she wants to end the relationship..ha..ha..)

Bonus Tip:
Give him a free pass to go out with his friends alone. Better still ,you tell him that you would not mind if he goes out with his female friends.... (This is the only one that i agree with you..with a smile bigger than the devil himself...)

My take..: You wanna make your man pay for your own shopping rendezvous..and buy for him something as well.. he..he..

This new edition is an operetic rediscovery of the formula that made the original Star Trek such a success. Only better, faster, smarter, and even more entertaining than the original.

You already know most of the plot: Kirk and Spock save the Federation from an uncompromising villain, with the help of Uhuru, Scotty, and Bones. This time around, the characters are better acted and better directed than in prior series or movies.
Eric Bana plays the villain Nero (lovely historical reference!) -- though he is given the thinnest psychological excuse for his mayhem. Bana has had some great roles in the past, but is given little room to show off his talent here. No matter, the "Federation" team more than makes up for Nero's limited character development.

What you don't know is how Kirk, Spock, and the gang get to be on the Enterprise. In this version, the time/space continuum is skewered, requiring a whole new "history" to be created. This plot device allows a far more interesting storyline to develop.

The effects are out of this world -- excuse the pun. The combat in space scenes are superb. I believe superior to any prior Star Trek or even any Star Wars production. Michael Bay who is directing Transformers 2 got to beat this milestone achieved by Star Trek.

My criticism is minor. I could go for a less "Hollywood" soundtrack (why is there ochestral accompanyment in space??), although there were several great sequences when the sound (appropriately) went dead as the scene went into space. And the scenes with Leaonard Nimoy as "old" Spock were plodding moments in the film. Give the guy a double espresso and reshoot!

All in all, a wild roller-coaster ride from start to finish which is wonderful escapist entertainment. It's a heroic fight between good and evil, carried out on a galactic scale. And since it's the movies, we do know who wins.

The best scene :

watch out for the little James Kirk jumping out of his car. and coolly ask the police officer if he is in trouble...he reminds me of James Dean.
