Movie – The Boat that Rocked (2009)

Ah.. the 1960’s! Back in the day when the A-list of British rock bands reigned supreme.. BBC was only playing classical music and jazz instead of .. ROCK and ROLL. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Yardbirds, The Hollies.. all took a backseat. What a pathetic situation.. and with no commercial radio stations […]

Movie – Johnny Mad Dog

We recently watched a rather disturbing movie, that warrants a mention. Kidnapping takes its vilest form as armed children in Liberia commandeer other kids to join their marauding troop. Fiction based on unbelievable fact, “Johnny Mad Dog” chronicles the atrocities of the ongoing civil war in that West African nation. The film directed by Jean-Stéphane […]

Count your Calories – Food for Thought

A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a dollar could buy 1,200 calories of potato chips or 875 calories of soda but just 250 calories of vegetables or 170 calories of fresh fruit. – Time Magazine. Read more about the report cited above here. Rising rates of obesity in the United […]

Kimchi

Cumi recently picked up a relatively flat looking packet of Kimchi at the The Malaysia Food and Beverage Fair at KL Convention Center. It says on the label that the Kimchi continues to ferment throughout the course of its shelf -life and the gases will expand the packaging, but two days ago, we noticed just […]

Cosmic Bowl @ Midvalley

I cannot bowl to save my life. I can possibly count the number of times I have had the pleasure of bowling in one hand, maybe. This is cosmic bowl in Mid Valley. 38 lanes! Fully Computerized! The first glow in the dark bowling centre in Malaysia! (That’s what the Ad says). CK lines up […]

A Mad Tea Party

`Have some wine,’ the March Hare said in an encouraging tone. Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. `I don’t see any wine,’ she remarked. `There isn’t any,’ said the March Hare. `Then it wasn’t very civil of you to offer it,’ said Alice angrily. `It wasn’t very […]

Movie – The Half Life of Timofey Berezin (PU-239)

B0010YPT7Y.01.LZZZZZZZ

Caught the HBO trailer several months ago and missed the opportunity to watch it so had to resort to special arrangements to get it, and we have to say this is an excellent original HBO movie! Captivating film, script/screenplay and performances.The movie tells the story of a nuclear plant employee exposed to radiation. He feels […]

Of all the food in the world (after Malaysian cuizine), I love Italian food the most. Try speaking the word ‘strangugghia previti’ and see if you don’t break out in a smile, or try saying the ‘rhum ba ba’ out loud and see if you don’t fell like breaking out in dance! Italian cuisine is […]

Fasting – Ramadhan

On this recent long weekend we actually ventured up north and one of the little sleepy towns we drove past was Sabak Bernam. Sabak Bernam is situated northwest of Selangor. This district mainly grows rice and its main economic activity is agriculture. In Sabak Bernam we came across this really interesting looking Mosque. The intricate […]

Movie – District 9

Since this has been a rather long weekend (for those working in Selangor), we’ve been catching up on movie watching. Another great movie that had me gnashing my teeth and gnawing my nails was District 9. Alien beings living amongst men, in slum-like conditions, exploited and un-loved/un-wanted.. one day, a government agent’s life is changed […]

Movie – Brüno

Photo from here and here We watched Bruno (the uncensored version) and found the show a riot! This film mainly addresses two things: America’s insatiable obsession with stardom and its perceptions/treatment of the homosexual community. The show is shallow and silly, but the actor Sacha Baron is pretty damn convincing in his role of recently […]
