Ninja Assassin cool weapon..

I watched Ninja Assassin this afternoon, and oh boy, was it bloody and gory. So if you are afraid of blood and dismembered parts, don't go watch the movie and go watch New Moon. ha ha.

I saw a real cool weapon in the movie, and wondered what is the name of the weapon. Its some sort of knife on a chain. Found some yahoo questions, where some people wants to buy it. Duhh, just because it looks cool does not mean you can wield it just like that. Its like the nunchaku, if you don't know how to use it, you might just end up hitting your own head. Give me a baseball bat any other day.

Its actually called a Kyoketshu-shogei, not to be confused with Kusari-gama, which is a sickle type of weapon.

My cat..

Some traditional food

I am finally back in Penang. I went back to my hometown to celebrate "Hari Raya Haji" last weekend.

The good thing about going back to my hometown is I get to see some traditional food that you cannot find in a big town like Penang,or it's gonna cost you a bundle.

The first dish is some "baby" fish. Umm, is that what you call them. The fish is some sort of fresh water fish called "Ikan Sepat". God knows the translation..ha ha

Here is how the live fish looks like..

The fish is captured with a device called the "bubu". My apologies, forget to take a picture of that. Maybe next time.

And my cats are crazy about them too.

And you can make salted fish with it. Just add salt and dry under the sun..

The second one is more common, "ikan keli bakar" with some "air asam"...

A walk at Gurney Drive..

Early morning I woke up and went to Wawasan Open U regional office for some business. Saw a lot of people with DSLR cameras lurking the old street of Penang, taking pictures. I have to get one too one of these days.

After that went to Gurney, there was a lot of sales, but I am keeping my money for my Christmas suit..ha ha.

Then I went for a walk along Gurney drive. It was drizzling so not that many people.

Some pictures for you to see.

Queensbay again..

Today is my last day of leave for this week. I thought of going to town but it rained in the morning so just sleep. In the afternoon, I decided to go Queensbay to watch a movie.

On Monday I watched "2012" so today I decided to watched a movie that I recommended in my blog "Raging Pheonix", a Thai movie. The queue was still long and by 2.00 pm the tickets for "2012" was sold out again, except for the front rows that will give you stiff necks.

Met my students there, who were buying tickets for "2012"..

The movie was not bad, at least I learned a few new fighting moves, that's why I loved this kind of movies. The next movie I wanna watch is "Ninja Assassin". That should be nice too.

Christmas is coming soon and they were preparing the Christmas decoration today. Its not done yet but here is a sneak preview.

More pictures when the decoration is completed. Maybe on Saturday.

Why is it when we have some money, something is sure to break down? My Guess watch gear mechanism has gone a bit crazy. For those that don't know or never repair watch, sometimes the cost of repair is 1/3 of the price of the watch. One of my friend has a watch that cost 245 and the cost of repairing it is 100..ha ha. So I am still thinking of which watch to get to replace my Guess while I send it for repair. Usually repair will take from 1 month up to 3 months. I am eying a black Swatch but someone I know suggested I get a more "classy" watch like Cerrutti. That is bloody expensive..So still considering. Tudor is not bad also..hmmm

In the evening I walked by the seaside, a great place to be in 2012..ha ha

Random thoughts

I am on leave starting from last Friday, so I am resting and not much in a mood to write. I am still on leave until Thursday, so still have time to rest. Some random thoughts while I was on holiday.

1. Politicians defending criminals
It sickens me when politicians want to be popular by defending criminals or suspected criminals. Where are the rights of the victims? One of my friend was injured when a snatch thief grabbed her handbag and assaulted her. Where was the politician then? When some suspected criminals were shot dead, the politicians were the first to jump and claim police brutality. While I am not really a big fan of some the actions of our police, I believe they still have the right to defend themselves. What about the right of the criminals? I feel they lost the right if they started charging at others with swords and parangs. If the politician say the police should arrest them and charge them in court, lets see how calm he is facing a sword wielding criminal. Think about two things before you say something, 1, how many victim rights did you fight for. 2. if you are facing a weapon wielding criminals, would you so calmly talk about the law or protect yourself first? Answer carefully...

2. Levis Imprint (I think thats the name...)
Levis jeans has come out with a product where you can customize how your jeans looks like. You just have to wear the jeans for 40 days without washing..urgh. Then your movement will determine how your jeans look like. After 40 days you can wash the jeans. The jeans might stain your shirt or undergarment in the process. I think this product will totally fail.....

3. 2012
I don't know why this movie attracts a lot of people. The queue at the cinema was super long on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the tickets were sold out at about 1.30 in the afternoon. So today I decided to go see it, at 11.30am there was a long queue due to their server down. Finally, managed to get a ticket at the 3.00 pm show, which was a full house. I managed to get the 4th row seat from the screen. 1 poser, if I were to save some people, why would I bring all the physic scientists? Since civilization have been destroyed, what use are they? Its better to bring farmers that can plant food or hunters that can hunt. Imagine the scientists hunting some wild boar????

New Swiss Army Knife

I broke the scissor spring of my Swiss army knife in May. I went to the shop but they don't have a suitable spring to fit my knife. After waiting for like 7 months, I decided to get another knife, but the same model as my current knife. My current knife, I put into retirement until I can find a suitable spring, maybe I have to go to KL to get the parts.

Swiss Army Knife, climber model. I have a soft spot for this model cause it has a lot of memories and histories which I cannot write here ....

Zombieland mini review

I have gotten my hand on Zombieland, but since there is a possibility that it will be shown here, I will not make a full review.

Basically zombies have taken over America, and our hero Columbus, has a certain set of rules he follows to survive Zombieland.

Rule #1 Cardio - You must be able to run fast or end up as zombie food..

Rule #2 Double Tap - If you shoot a zombie and not sure, shoot it again on the head.

Rule #3 Beware of Bathrooms - be extra careful when using the bathroom.

Wear seatbelts when escaping in vehicles while mowing down zombies.. ha ha

Just in case some zombies are hiding there..ha ha

If the movie is not shown here, I will make the full review in a month ha ha.
