One day my friends invited me to watch salt. Not knowing “Salt” is actually a movie, I asked him, “why we want to watch salt? why not we just eat it ?” OMG. That is the silliest moment.
Knowing that I don’t read synopsis or movie title, I actually thought that salt is salt..yes..table salt. This is what comes to my mind at that time. Silly me.
We had a great laugh and ended up spending RM 12 per person and kill 105 min in my life. Ops. I shouldn’t say kill my life when Angelina Jolie is acting. Don’t get me wrong, this is actually a good movie.
Like I said before, I watch the movies if they have nice posters. Look at the posters below. Hmm.. They look mysterious to me and full with curiosity. I like it ! The movie was directed by Phillip Noyce – the same director in The Bone Collector (1999).
A guy that knows nothing about the movie, nothing about the storyline, I would say the movie is full with surprises. Not to mention a lot of action and cool scenes. I am too into the movie until I finished my pop corn without realising it.
Angelina Jolie again impressed me with her character in this movie. Starting from blonde CIA, turns into fugitive, elude capture with all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative.
In all movies I watched, there is a spesific scene that I like the most. Like in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice for instance, I like the “Hungarian Mirror Tricks”. In this movie, I like the “Home made Bazooka !” AWESOME..
Many times, the movie trailer shows all the nice scenes. I watched this trailer only after I watched the real movie in cinema and I think it is worth sharing with all. Again, without reading synopsis and reviews, I make the fullest of my 105 min and RM 12.

Live to eat or eat to live? That is the question. Is it too much to agree on both? I eat to live everyday but once in a while, I live to eat. Hehe. Many says tasty food is not a healthy food. This time, I found both tasty and healthy food. Japanese food. Statistic shows that Japanese live longer (average 80 + years old). Here is the secret ..
I went to Ozeki Tokyo Cuisine @ Jalan P.Ramlee, KL.
I would say the Wow factor here is the menu. It is so BIG. Nicely fit with the cutlery setup.
This is a perfect place for a romantic date. Either for lunch or candlelight dinner would be perfect. Although the shop is just by the roadside, the parking is not an issue. The traffic can be very bad in the evening tho, but if you work in KLCC, it is just a few steps away.
The restaurant is nicely setup with sake bottles as decorations, wooden tables with comfortable cushion chair. The service is very fast too, just nice for a quick lunch. Fast is one criteria, tasty food is the most important requirements. The beef set is my favourite but the teppanyaki chicken is a “must try”. The sauce.. yummie.. drooling even when I think about it. The presentation is astonishing.
The taste of food is hardly explained with my limited vocab. Beside saying it is delicious, yummy, actions speaks louder than words. I help the waitress to clean the dishes .
Lastly, nice lunch is always ended up with a fortune but in Ozeki, I consider this meal as reasonable. I manage to get the namecard to share with all of you. You will regret if you miss it.

I am a big fan of movies. What movies? All sorts of movies, English, Chinese, Action, Adventure, Humor, Horror, Romantic, Fantasy and of course many more. I am slightly different from others in the sense that I can watch the same movies over and over again. My record on watching Steven Chow’s movies is 38-1/2 times (the last one, I dozes off after 50 min ) and still counting. Wasting time? I don’t think so. No life? Hell no.
How many read synopsis, review or movies summary first before going to cinema? To me, nice posters will help me to decide what movie I want to watch. Weird huh? Simple concept is this, I prefer surprises rather than knowing the storyline before I even watch it. Besides, everyone has different taste and expectation. Movies reviewers might have different opinion than us.
Recently, I just watched The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Walt Disney Pictures in Tanjung Golden Village (TGV) KLCC. The Director is Jon Turtletaub (Director of National Treasure). A cool adventure and nice action movie for 1 hr 54 min. A few actors and actress that might ring your bell, Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Monica Bellucci, Alfred Molina .
I will not give synopsis or movie summary or even screenshot here. I bet you can just simply google it but try not to read it for the first time and watch this movie. The feelings of not knowing what is it about and what is the storyline is priceless. Try it. Like I said, everyone has different opinion and I am not a movie reviewers by the way. Personally, I like this movie very much. A lot of actions, high tech visuals, cool acts especially the ‘Hungarian Mirror Trick’ and much more.

Only RM 12 per ticket or RM 6 per ticket on Wednesday can spice up your life for two hours. If the movie is not your type, compliment yourself with a nice and sweet icecream. It helps ! And rule of thumb is, never watch it alone. Sad isn’t it if you are alone in cinema. Nice, terrible, good, bad movies, who do you want to share with if you are alone? Well, call me if you cannot find anyone to watch it with you.
A lot of nice movies coming up e.g Cats and Dogs, The Expendables, Resident Evil: Afterlife, The Other Guys and many more. I am sure they will keep you occupied. Lastly, try not to read synopsis or reviews and watch them straight away…
A close friend of mine was lost in KL when he called me for help.
Alvin: Hey buddy. Can you do me a favor? I am lost.
Buddy: Yes. Where are you?
Alvin: I don’t know where am I. I am not familliar with KL roads. Can you please guide me to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre)?
Buddy: Don’t worry, I am here. Can you please tell me the nearest landmark.
Alvin: I can see two very tall buildings with a bridge in the middle from here. It seems like the buildings are connected.
