Sitora Harimau Jadian, a long lost P. Ramlee movie

I was in Borders when a book caught my attention.

The title triggered my ancient memories, it's a P. Ramlee movie in 1964, but unfortunately unlike all his other movies, this one is lost in the sands of time. Younger generations will never have the chance to see this, cause it has simply been lost.

Sitora Harimau Jadian is literally translated as Sitora the Weretiger. Western civilization have stories about werewolves but here we have story about weretigers.

This book is republished due to the hard work of Amir Muhammad, who found the classic book while researching about Malay movies. His story can be found here.

My Spyderco Tenacious

I have been looking at this knife since November last year, and finally I had the courage to buy it. In Penang you can get a Spyderco at this shop, Outdoor Dynamics and the owner is a great and friendly guy, so feel free to drop buy and have a look at his stuff, maybe buy one or two knife or camping equipment.

Why did I consider so long, see the price :)
I tested it buy cutting a piece of paper. clean cut, so its sharp out of the box.

How big is it actually? Comparison with my Swiss Army knife.

The Man With the Iron Fists

Quentin Tarantino presents “The Man With the Iron Fists”, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director, co-writer and leading man, RZA—alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu—tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-take-all battle for a fortune in gold.

Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.

Joining Crowe, RZA and Liu in the cast are Rick Yune, Jamie Chung, Cung Le, Dave Bautista, Byron Mann, Daniel Wu and Pam Grier.

I still remember when this was the in thing. They charge per word during they glory days.
