Taken at Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park, will post some more later, must sleep now, hectic weekend.
I quite often go to Esquire Kitchen, either in 1-Utama or in Mid Valley to grab a Soya Bean and some Fried Sauce Noodles, yummy!
The Wor Tip or Fried Dumplings are pretty good too.
But I always go for the sauce noodles.
I did hear someone say they had siu loong pau, so I had to check it out, seen as though I’m on a quest for the best siu loong pau in KL!
Dragon-I failed pretty miserably.
Anyway if you have anything at Esquire, it must be the sauce noodles!
The vege are pretty good at esquire too like this fried aubergine with garlic and spring onions.
A1 Grand Prix is the first opportunity in any area of motorsport for nations to compete on a level playing field. It is a series where technology and innovation are deliberately equalised and performance is determined by human bravery, skill and excellence. Team and driver combine to create their advantage and the winning nation raises its flag in celebration.
I went to the the 14th race of the A1 GP series yesterday, the weather was pretty much atrocious and I couldn’t get close enough as I didn’t have track access so I was limited to wide shots.
The crowd was pretty good and the heavy rain and flooded track certainly added to the drama, there was quite a few spins.
It was quite a long wait for the rain to stop.
The wait was boring…so I took pictures of random stuff.
Casino Royale introduces James Bond before he holds his license to kill. But Bond is no less dangerous, and with two professional assassinations in quick succession, he is elevated to ’00’ status. Bond’s first 007 mission takes him to Madagascar where he is to spy on a terrorist, Mollaka.
Ah Bond is indeed back, and he’s back in a big way.
There were many detractors for Daniel Craig, myself included I must admit I didn’t think he was gonna fill the boots just right, but damn I was wrong and I’m glad so.
To get this out of the way, Casino Royale is a fantastic movie and it’s right up there with the classics of the Bond franchise. Daniel Craig really nails it as the raw recruit promoted to ’00’ status.
You can see him develop through-out the movie, get more refined, cold hearted and more like the Bond we have come to know and love as potrayed by Roger Moore and Sean Connery.
It was classic bond with an Aston Martin (although short-lived), hot chicks, fights, action and really beautiful cinematopgraphy.
The chicks were gooooddd.
And the bad guy was bad ass, so bad ass he wept blood!
The first action scene was great in the Bahamas, there was some weird cutting with the Malaysians censorship though…I’m sure the film skipped a couple of minutes at one point as it went from one scene to another without any transition.
But then we are used to that already right?
The film was exciting through-out with a really good emotional range showed by the characters, the last few Bond movies left me luke-warm, but this one, this is real Bond.
Bond is back and he’s bad ass.
Watch it now, I give it a very good 9/10 (No I won’t give it 007/10)
Got a bit distracted by pork and beer, will update soon!
Well seen as though some people asked, and well I was personally interested to see if I could convey my boredom here..
Here is a series of pictures intended to show the loneliness and boredom I feel here.
Can you feel it?
Here’s my cubicle and my lifeline to the rest of the world, just to show cubicles do look the same all over the world..
Here’s the appartment I stay in, my prison.
Syriana is a thriller of corruption and power related to the oil industry that tells four parallel stories: the CIA agent Bob Barnes (George Clooney) with great experience in Middle East that falls in disgrace after an unsuccessful mission dealing missiles in Lebanese Republic; the investigation of the attorney Bennett Holiday (Jeffrey Wright) related to the merge of two American oil companies, Connex and Killen; the traumatic association of the energy analyst Bryan Woodman (Matt Damon) with the son of a powerful emir of Iran; and the social drama of the Pakistani immigrant worker Wasim Khan (Mazhar Munir) that is fired by the oil company.
Well it’s a long time since I’ve done a movie review, so here you are! It’s been quite a long time since I watched any movies, so there you go..
I’ve got a LOT of movies to catch up, so I’ll bore you with some of the reviews.
Syriana was one of those big hyped movies from 2005, Oscar nominations, these awards, those awards etc etc. I was expecting a lot from it.
It got a solid 7.2 on IMDB, if not for the boring part it’d easily be a high 8.
Frankly the first 20 mins was a complete yawn-fest, I almost turned it off, I know someone that did fall asleep and someone else that did actually turn if off half way through.
It’s a shame as it does get very much better after that.
It’s an intricately woven tale showing the picture from the ground level with Pakistani workers being laid off in the oil fields, the political level, and the level of normal people like you and I with George Clooney and Matt Damon getting involved for vastly different reasons.
It’s a deeply political film and very nicely linked together but slow in parts, it’s definately thinkers film and is closely related to many of the things that have happened in recent times..
I believe it was banned in Malaysia due to some of the sensitive issues it addressed.
The acting was top notch, it’s good to see Clooney taking a meaty role and once again Matt Damon showing his versatility.
It’s an interesting enough movie, just don’t expect any action, chicks, explosions or humour.
Serious and tense it is, light-hearted it is not.
You have to give it some time and get into the plot, the twists, the power struggles and the back-stabbing. It was based on a book which was apparently based on a real conflict, I have yet to look up who the prince was..but it’s certainly interesting.
I’d give it a worth watching 6.5/10.
OMG I’m so bored.
The food is boring, the people are boring, the project is boring, the place is boring, the buildings are boring.
At least it’s not so hot here now, winter is coming and it’s a very pleasant 20 degrees most of the time.
I can even walk back to the skanky service appartment wearing a jacket and not feel hot.
People here just eat flatbread and homous, or well 5 dishes or cream coloured stuff that all looks and tastes pretty much like homous..
And some grilled bbq shit like kebabs, which don’t taste of anything really.
At least there’s a croissant shop downstairs which does good chocolate croissants.
Even the indomee here tastes lousy..I had some at the appt last night whilst watching Ronin.
I went through all 213 channels on the cable TV, there is only 5 in English.
This place is ghetto, seriously.
At least I’ve managed to catch up with some decent movies…I finally got to see Gangs of New York, I bought the DVD about 4 years ago, but never watched it because it was a screener.
Good flick actually.
I’m not even motivated to take pictures of anything because it’s such an oppressive place and it’s so boring and brown and sandy.
I might take some pictures of the appt just to show how shit it is.
Every car here is beat-up, they drive like nutcases and have some kind of mental issues where they HAVE to make their tyres squeal round every corner.
And they beep immediately when the traffic lights turn green..just in case the person at the front didn’t notice.
Plus the restaurants here have two sections, the family section and the single section, which is kinda weird at first.
It took me about 3 days to realise I hadn’t actually seen a woman since I’d been here, there is non in the office (which is very strange for me as my office is full of ’em).
Then there’s this annoying guy I have to work with who can’t shut up, he’s the one that has to crack jokes and put puns into every conversation…even though non of the jokes are funny and the puns aren’t witty.
Everyone entertained him for a couple of days, but now his lame quips fall on silence, which is kinda akward. I wish he’d get the message and dose himself up a good portion of STFU.
The weekend is totally whacked here too, now is Sunday, but it’s Tuesday…I’m in the office and was yesterday aswell, because Thursday was Saturday and Friday was Sunday, so really Saturday is Monday..
(sarcasm) Yes I’m really enjoying travelling and soaking up new and interesting cultures. (/sarcasm)
Oh dear…I really wish there were something positive about this, other than the fact it’ll be over soon, WHICH IT BETTER BE.
