Appreciate the support and also the feedback from all of you out there.
The story of a guy going through life filled with challenges, frustration, achievement, satisfaction and hopefully at the end happiness.
To be honest I wasn't that excited to catch this movie at the beginning or even gonna watch it in the cinema but since my friend was booking it last night, so I just asked her to include me. So I am going in with no expectation at all. Unexpectedly, it was a good thing. The movie starts at midnight and end around 1.50am. So it's close to a 2 hour show.
This time around, Christian Bale lead the cast as human last hope John Connor. It continues after part 3 of the quad-trilogy series when Skynet launch a nuclear attack or Judgement Day upon the human race. The reason? Well it's quite ironic actually. Skynet was created or programmed to save the human from all threat and by all means human themselves. As Skynet believed that we are the biggest threat to human existence in the future. Well, you have to agree with Skynet on this to a certain extent.
The race between Skynet & John Connor to find Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) who is the man John Connor gonna send back to future to protect his mother, Sarah Connor and subsequently becomes his father. Yes, I know it's a bit complicated but if you did catch the first installment, you should know how the story goes by now. So the movie show how John grow to become a leader to lead the mankind or resistance to fight against the machines.
What I like about this movie was the cinematography and also the story line. I especially like the scene where John was shot down from his chopper and crash to the ground in one shot, way cool and realistic. Not to mentioned the cool machines from the movie like the T600, T800, Hunter Killer, Harvester, Motor-terminator and also the Hydrobot. Overall I guess the movie is alright and worth watching if you'd already catch the three previous installment. (Rating: 3.8 out of 5.0)
It's been weeks since I last joined Body Pump class and tonight I had decided to give it a try. I had practically stop doing it since K-Bear stop teaching it few weeks back. We had lunch this afternoon and her injury is getting better now. We were talking bout some of the classes and all and did touch on the issue of not doing pump for some time and our muscle will retract very fast. So I had decided to join Cindy's class tonight. Surprisingly I didn't struggle much on the squats even though we're doing 'Voodoo Child' and I am carrying back my old 15kgs.
But upper body was hell. During chest we did 'Summer Rain', my left elbow was giving me some sharp pain. But still managed to finished the whole song with 10kgs. Clean & press was short but still I think my arms were a bit weak so I was a bit fatigue during the end. Luckily there wasn't any biceps and triceps during her class. Shoulder was a killer. We did 'I Like The Way We Move' which was so hard for me this time around. Maybe my upper body really lacks training now since I had stop pump. But my lower body is still strong as I did a lot of RPM. So the morale of the story is, don't stop doing Body Pump for more than a week or you're gonna suffer when you're going back to the class.
Has been driving without a valid road tax for more than half a month now. Well it's not because I didn't renew it but just that I don't have the time to change it on my windscreen that's all. The new road tax had been tuck away in my glove compartment all this while. Just realized that I haven't change it this morning. Anyway, what they say is true, what you doesn't know won't scare the day light out of you. LOL!!!
My first back to back classes since my long holiday. And I was thinking about holding back on my first step class but then I thought, what the heck~! Just max it out and sweat it off. Totally love the first track we did Tribal Dance for the final power track. What a way to finish off the class. RPM class was pack tonight. Track 5 was especially tough with 4 sets of standing attack mix with sitting climb and then to aero-race. But it was really a powerful and intense class as I sweat so much. Well that is what I came here for. Continued with Master C class with BQ, Wanie and Cindy. Sifu and Co. was here again tonight. I think I am gonna see their faces quite often on Monday night. Just wanna shout out in here, Happy Birthday Master C and Thanx Wanie for your muffins. Gonna get home early to finish off my drama tonight. hehe!
I had been thinking of creating another blog which focuses on my makan-venture. As I had some feedback from readers that my current blog is a bit crowded and jumble up with too many issues and posts. Actually I had thought about this long before but didn't have the time to do it. But since I found that blogger had a new feature of exporting all my posts into another blog, I had picked up the idea again. But there is still some glitches in the feature which need to be iron out. Hopefully the new blog will be up before the end of the month. Finger cross.
Started off the third day with some massage session after breakfast. We had a Thai massage by the hotel side yesterday after our island trip. Now we decided to try some massage parlor nearby our hotel. So at the end we decided to give this place a try. As the price and the ambiance was really attractive.
Coco had been shedding off fur from some part of his body for some time now. Babe and me had wanted to send him to the vet but we didn't have time during the weekends. And by Sunday, the vets are all close. But we found out that there were one at Atria which open half day on Sunday. But when we arrived today, it was close. Called the doctor and he told me that he's not opening today and I asked him to recommend me another vet. He was so nice to recommend me to another vet which is just opposite my house at Taman Megah.
When we arrived, there were two owners with their dogs waiting to see the doctor. One with a Boxer and another with his miniature Schnauzer. Coco was all intimidated when he entered the clinic as there were already two dogs in there. Registered him and waited for our turn. Another owner came in with a Dachshund. Finally it was our turn and I carry Coco into the room. We weigh him and later placed him on the operation table. The doctor examine his body and took some sample and look under the microscope. It's a fur mite problem. Coco is feeling itchy and hence licking himself all the day and fur is shed by it. So to stop the shedding, we need to cure his itchiness. Coco got a jab and recommended to get a body spray to be applied on his body to reduce the itching. The jab, spray and consultation cost us RM150. Costly? Well what can we do? Coco is our pet and it's our responsibility to take care of our pet : ) Hopefully he be fine soon.
How do you define how hard you have work out each time you go to gym? I mean if you're doing cardio or resistance or even RPM classes. How do you define if you're really working hard enough? Is it the non stop beating of your heart after each track? Or the amount you sweat after the whole class? I saw one of the RPM instructor who sweat so much that it created a puddle of water underneath his bike. Well, I think we all agree that the more we sweat, the more calories we burn in our body. I have this bad habit of weighing myself every morning before I go to work and each time I reach home after gym.
My weight can really varies very much during the weekends. I think I ate a lot during the weekends hence I work like mad during the weekdays. For instance today, my lunch was so crazy. I had deep fried calamari, fried chicken and lamb curry with vegetables. I was so damn full after the fulfilling lunch I had. So I would need to work out extra hard tonight. But I skipped Cindy's Body Pump as my legs was still a bit sore after the challenge last night. So I just did RPM and Combat class to sum up my exercise tonight. Hopefully I burn enough calories tonight to compensate with the super lunch I had today. So how bout you all? How do you weight your workout?
Finally I had joined Lilian's RPM Challenge class tonight. It was really a pain in the arse looking for a parking space tonight. But luckily I managed to get a spot right in front of the building. It was only 5.45pm but almost all the bikes had been booked. Luckily QQ arrived earlier and signed in for 3 of us (MD & BQ). So what is the different between a normal 50 minutes class and an one hour Challenge class? Well all I know is that there are another additional 2 more tracks for the challenge. Seemed like I was the only newbie on this Challenge class tonight.
Tracks was really tough even for the speed work. I am feeling that speed work are more difficult than mountain climb tracks. The speed work seemed so long tonight. Half way through while Lilian was calling out MD & BQ's name, she shouted my name too. How the hell did she know my name? Well only one suspect comes to my head. QQ found something wrong on my shoulders during the class. Hmm....need to look into that as I don't even realize it during the class. But I won't be here next week. Sigh~! So gonna try to fix it on tomorrow's class. Oh, another RPM class tomorrow. Ouch~!
PS: Is dolphins really that similar to sea lion? Well one of my friend think so. LOL!!
It was close to midnight and I was curious with one of the (HOT??) application in FB. It's called, 'How Well Do You Know (your name) and in this case my name. I was first asked to play this game by K-Bear. I think I scored not bad at all too. Anyway back to my story. I was fiddling through the application and thinking of what type of questions to ask. After getting to the 6th question, I suddenly felt that the questions was a bit too bias. Well bias as in more towards my friend in FF. Who else could have know how many classes I had in one week, right?? So I had decided to delete the questions and forget about it. Then today I saw someone answered my questions and their scores. So I went in and saw a few of my friends had tried out the questions. TTB was the first (I heard) to start the ball rolling. Thanx babe.
Surprisingly LP got the highest scores. TTB, BQ, CP and K-Bear scored the same scores. Bit disappointing for the latter. LOL! What surprise me more, was that one of my friend who doesn't join FF scored a higher marks on the test compared to my gym-mates. I think most of the people got the "What Is My Favourite Food" wrong. Yes, I post a lot of Char Siew on my blog but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's my favourite food. I eat rice everyday, so does that mean it's my favourite food? It's a normal test but it's sometimes funny knowning how much people know about you or you thought they know about you.
The weekend starts off for me very early as I had promised my mom to go over my brother's house for breakfast. She had bought the famous dry pan mee from Kajang for me. Oh how, can I say NO to that request??! After taking breakfast, babe and me decided to hang out at my bro's house while he's installing the software for my babe's new Mac. I fall asleep half way as it was really hot that day.
Woke up and was deciding where to have dinner with my parents. Initially it was supposed to be TGI Friday at IOI Mall but since mom wanted something with cook rice, so we opted for a new seafood at Bandar Puteri. But we changed to another place after that when we found out that the place was fully booked. After dinner, we went over to Secret Recipe for dessert as my parents like their cakes very much. Ordered 6 different slices of cakes while spending some quality time with my parents.
I was initially planning to go for Master T's morning class but bro called for breakfast and I postponed my plan for next week. We had breakfast and decided to check out some shops at Damansara Utama for some house appliances. There are so many lighting shops in Damansara Utama. I think there is at least 6 shops in the same row. After having a long time checking out the shops, decided to sit down and have a drink at Old Town. Decided to call it a day as I wanted to look for a vet for Coco.
Found out that he is having some fungus thingy disease which is slowly spreading from his tail to his body. But found out that most of the vet only operates half day on Sunday. The funny part was during the drive over to Damansara Jaya looking for the vet. Coco was so scared that he was trying to look for a way out my car and finally hides up at the windscreen behind my car. He was purring all the way, so pity. He sounded so scared but babe and me was laughing as it sounded so cute to us. :Þ
Everyone has their own origins, even superheros. So this movie focuses on one of my all time favourite superheros character, Wolverine from the X-Men. Who doesn't like Wolverine? I mean with that bad ass look, cool bods and that super cool Adamantium retractable sharp blades (or rather bones) coming out from both his hands. They got it right by choosing Hugh Jackman to play the character in the first installment. The attitude and the looks was just perfect.
So back to this movie, it started off telling the tales of two brothers (non blood related) who ran away from home and had been through wars and death together. But one of them Victor a.k.a Sabretooth had turn uncontrollable during this time and at the end they both part ways. Jimmy Logan a.k.a Wolverine had resided himself from the world with his lover up the hills but finally being caught up by his old employer, Skyler.
In the movies, you will see a lot of faces which are familiar to the X-Men franchise, such as Gambit, Night Crawler, Storm, Cyclops and the in famous Weapon XI a.k.a Death Pool. Oh man, he's so damn cool. Not gonna tell the ending here but let you watch it yourself instead. A great movie to share with friends as I like the story line. Not too boring but not too much action. It shows the emotional side of Wolverine which we don't really see much. Definitely a movie to be recommended to my friends. (Rating: 4 out of 5)
PS: There is some snippets at the end of the movie. So don't walk out that fast when the credits come rolling down. : ) And I heard there is another ending to this which I am not gonna mentioned in here to spoil the fun.
I was driving back from Johor around noon as I plan to make it for the signing for my S&P and bank loan documents at the lawyer firm. Managed to reach KL after 3 and a half hour which is earlier than I expected. No, I didn't speed, well most of the journey except the stretch between Pork Dickson and Nilai exit. I was so damn bored when I saw one Honda Accord being tailed by another Hyundai Accent who is being tailed by a KELISA??? Well, I joined in the chase as I was really bored of traveling at 110km/hr the whole journey. I think 4 of us drove at least 160km/hr while cutting pass all the car and tailgating them all at one point. There were a lot of cars between Seremban and Nilai as usual so we squeezed in between cars and the Accord even used the emergency lane. How crazy is that. LOL!!
Boy I was so sleepy when I was driving pass Melaka. Almost doze off while driving but luckily managed to recover back before anything unforeseen incident could arise. Quickly stop at the closest R&R and freshen up. Drove all the way down Senai after that. Gut feeling won over brain and I ended up 35km away from the actual destination. Stupid stupid stupid~! Almost ended up at Second Link. LOL! Finished off all the appointments and drop by Metrojaya's warehouse sales which so happen to be held over at Danga City Mall (*wink wink*). Wasn't what I expected. Lots of sales and items but not my interest though. Check in and rest before heading out looking for food. After going through few shopping mall, decided to settle down with Lavazza Cafe. Food suck! Mushroom soup too watery and my Cabonara too salty. For the love of god, how the hell did they managed to cook up a salty Cabonara? Went back and try to go online but the hotel's WiFi fark me up again although I am staying in a lower floor now. Sigh~! Had a long day today and gonna have a longer one tomorrow, so better rest early. And I should be doing back-to-back RPM class right now. Sigh~!!!
Tonight's Body Step class was so pack. I don't know where does all the people came from. This has got to be one of the largest crowd for Tuesday night class. During Brian's class, I saw Sue waving at me from outside. Yes, she's back. Can't wait for her class later. Sue look all slim down from the last I saw her. The muscles and all were all gone. She look quite smaller size now. LOL! Nevertheless, she been through some rough time and now she's back. And the rest is history. It was a mixture of old and new releases tonight. And she was so nice to do Miracle for the back track for me as she know it's one of my favourite. After 1 week of not doing any pump class, I was really tired during biceps. Continued with Master T's combat class later on. Class was pack tonight. A lot of new faces around. After the class BQ wanted to have some food so managed to 'buy' me to have supper with her. Yes, I am just worth a basket of fries. LOL! Call it a night earlier tonight as I need an early head start tomorrow for my trip down South. Oh, where can I find some really good food down there?
I am not too sure about the location of this shop too but I guess it's along Jalan Eng Kwee if I am not mistaken. It's famous for their Char Kuey Teow and also Cendol. I think this is gonna be my 3rd plate of Char Kuey Teow of the trip. Place was small and pack but luckily found a table to sit.
