The progress seems epic this time

Wonderweiss with the huge thing that was with Aizen before)
Wonderweiss attacks Ukitake. Don! "Impossible..." (WW's hand tore through Uki's back)

Shunsui, after seeing, slashes at WW, but at that time, Stark shoots him in the back.

The two of them (Uki and Shunsui) falls to the ground, and Stark looks on.

"Sorry. Seems like Aizen-sama wants to hurry this up, sending out Wonderweiss. Nothing personal..."

Wonderweiss cries a very powerful battle cry. (OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!)

From inside the ice mountain, Harribel is seen with a mean/scary look on her face.

And the form of Barragan is seen standing amongst the smoke. Soifon looks shocked (Cez: I think)

Kira calls to Koma, "Leave this to me, please go, Taichou"
In the next second, the fire prison disappeared in the blink of eye, and the 3 people are there.

Kira: "Is it over...?"

Aizen steps forward

"Wait! Long time no see, Aizen!"

With that, the vizards have arrived.

Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2009

Its my 4th run of the year. Even though I'm not getting really good timing but I do still enjoy them.

Went there early this time around. Reached there around 6.15 am, got myself a good parking spot. We were basically stretching around and warmed up a bit before the run. Huge crowd for 10km run, thousands! Love big huge crowd turnouts.


Then, we saw Spiderman and took a picture with him.


Crowds getting ready to start....

Started well, ran quite far until I stop and sprint again... Saw Celine and Evo somewhere, queuing for loo..


Reaching Jalan Duta... By the time of 5km, many started to walk... I got a slight pain on my tummy, so I started to slow down...


Reaching finishing line... OMG! Can you see the mom with the baby...


Finished the race 1h 43 min. My personal best time ever... I could do better next time around!


Me, Rachel and my cousins...


Rachel did 1hr 20 min, her best time as well...

Bumped to lots of friends in this marathon. Jason of Smashpop.net, Kennysia, Celine, Evo and my high school friends.

Can't wait for the next run!

Verification: Confirmed

There is a color page with CHAD.

After seeing Ukitake's moves 3 times Stark can see through it.

I don't remember what they are saying sorry.

Some guy (Wonderweiss??) interrupts.

Some ridiculously huge guy appears from the rear (a big black mass, can't tell who).

Ukitake's swords ability allows it to absorb from the left blade and then release it with the right?

Basically it absorbs as one thing and transforms while passing through the chain and is emitted as a wave of energy. (So I guess if it goes in as a cero it comes out more like Ukitake's power and the cero mixed/combined? I'm not sure how to explain this).

The two guys are being pushed. Kyouraku is going to use his bankai but Ukitake stops him.

There is an intrusion.

Stark and also Wonderweiss?


As far as I can tell it is not Yammi.

Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen Movie Review

Warning! Spoilers ahead!


The movie was quite lengthy, around 2 1/2 hours long. It starting to reveal more history of Transformers in this movie.

Spoilers alert!

The movie started in 15,000 BC when the first Transformer landed on Earth.

Then, it moved to Shanghai China where a Decepticons were detected. Demolisher and Sideways. Both are crushed by the Autobots and human alliance. Demolisher warned ahead "Fallen is coming for revenge".

Sam enrolled to college and President aides wanted Autobots to leave the planet. Soundwave then initiated to revive Megatron by stealing the last fragment of All Spark while Sam accidentally touched the other fragment of All Spark gave him the information of a secret location in his mind. While the Autobots were busy keep the Decepticons at bay, Ravage managed to steal the All Spark and revived Megatron.

Sam then, bumped to a pretender Decepticon female who wanted to kill him. Megatron revived, took back his role as the leader of the Decepticon under a new master, the Fallen. Decepticons then caught Sam and they ambushed Optimus Prime. Optimus Prime was killed by Decepticons.

Desperate to look Sam, the Decepticons then went for manhunt through the mass media, urging to give up Sam or they will destroy Earth.

Sam then with helps with the fallen agent and a robot called Wheelie with "Megan" found an old Decepticon named Jetfire. Jetfire then now defected as Autobot helped Sam and the rest and revealed the history of Fallen and the Primes.

Sam then found out that Matrix could save Optimus Prime and also can activate the "Harvester" that will drain the sun's energy for form Energons.

Decepticons then launched a mass attack on the Autobots and the humans, particulary Sam. Sam managed to revive Optimus Prime but he's too weak to go against Fallen. The old dying Jetfire then took his life to spare his parts for OP. OP crushed Fallen and almost killed Megatron. Ending....

I liked the movie but its a bit draggy towards the end. Many non-Transformers fans would wonder what is Matrix. Many would not understand either on the history of Transformers. This movie is equally as the first one. Michael Bay did it again! Kudos! I can't wait now for Part 3!!

The Real Reason Of The Collapse Of Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium

I received an email regarding The Real Reason Of The Collapse Of Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium yesterday. After reading the email, I found it very disturbing. I couldn't believe what I seen so I decided to post it here.

Let us recap what has happened at Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium...

The roof of the stadium collapsed on 2 June 2009 at 9.40 a.m. While no one was injured and a few cars were damaged, overall damage was estimated at RM35mil. The worst damage was at the east wing. The CIBD (Construction and Industrial Development Board) of the Works Ministry has been tasked to form an investigation team with certified architects to probe why this happened. - Wikipedia

Let us see how the stadium looks like....


...before the incident....

...after the incident...

And the real reason was...


Now you understand how disturbed I was when I read this yesterday?

Diamonds Are Deadly...

Lately, the gathering conversations are revolved with diamonds. Yes, 2 more couples of my friends got engaged lately. Well, of course I'm very happy for them and wishing them all the best in their life. Live long and prosper...

Why diamonds are deadly?

Since there's a few couples were engaged which includes me. The girls usually showed off their rings.

The next thing you can hear is... " Wah how big is your diamond? How many carat? What's the clarity? Whats the color? What's the cutting?"

Well, to me in life if there's something to make a comparison.... things will get difficult...

Its not how big the diamond could make a marriage works, its all about love, respect and responsibility....

If love could be measured on its size, clarity, color, cutting and its value, would the love be valuable any more?

I'm watching Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen on Monday (22nd June 09)

Thanks to Nuffnang, I will be able to watch Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen on Monday!

Even though I didn't win the top 3 prizes, the premiere tickets are good enough for me! :)

The tickets as below...




The tickets are super cool, another collectible Transformers movie ticket added to my collection.

Thanks UIP and Nuffnang for the tickets!

I Love My New Car

There are so many features in this new car. The salesperson had to step by step taught me how to use the functions. But my most favourite function of all is...

my car1

... the built in Bluetooth system. I can call using my car! I have no worries of charging my Bluetooth handsfree set now. On top of that, I can also upload my address book into my car.... It can receive call not just from my phone but also can store memories of 10 bluetooth users!

Well, now I have eat bread and porridge for years to have this baby. No matter how, I love my new car! :)

Stark's gun (Lilynette) is a continuous rapid-fire cero gun.
This is the only thing that Stark says...
My, that was an easy fight.
Kyouraku can't dodge the attack and Ukitake appears in front of him.
Whether he reflects the attack or uses his own technique to counter I don't know,
but he saves him in any case.
The end.

quick sum up


Naruto says he won't allow that kind of crap and is going to complain to Danzo


Kakashi stops him, saying that the big wigs made the decision, play your hand poorly and you'll end up in the brig. Just hold out until Tsunade-sama wakes up.


To Danzo,


He orders Sai to keep an eye on Naruto and make sure he doesn't do anything stupid (the reason being that Naruto is the hero and has more fame than Danzo, if Danzo doesn't manage Naruto well, there would be an uprising by the villagers)


The thus ordered Sai returns to Naruto, Sai, Kakashi. Naruto asks Sai about Danzo, but Sai can't talk because all the Root members have their tongues sealed, if they spill any secrets, they will freeze up (in short, if they talk, they'll die), so Sai can't say anything


They explain to Sai who doesn't know the whole story, about Danzo giving the order to take out Sasuke


The Hidden in the Clouds guys here and spring into battle mode


Sasuke kid-napped our teacher


While neither group is going all out, the two "black" (sorry, that is what the Japanese says) ninja school Sakura and Naruto, that's how good they are


Why would Sasuke do that? (Naruto obviously asking)

使者が 今は暁にいて雲隠れを襲って師匠をらちりやがったんだと聞き

みんな驚いた所で 完

The Hidden in the Clouds say that Sasuke is now in Akatsuki and he attacked their village and kid-napped their teacher. Everyone's jaw drops and the chapter ends

My Broga Hill Experience

After looking at quite a number of my friends been to Broga Hill lately, I got my backside itchy and organized a trip there. It was my first hand experience on hiking to such place, so it was a memorable one. To make it more interesting, we lost our way in the jungle. I'm not joking!

Can't Get Enough Of Transformers: My Life With Transformers

In 1986, something great happened in Planet Earth. The invasion of robots of Autobots and Decepticons into Planet Earth's TV sets. Yet, all this happened when the Americans discovered the robots of Diaclone Robots of Takara Japan in early 80s. They were amazed by how the toy could transformed from cars, trucks and even insects into robots.

From the toys, they came out with 3 pilot episodes of Transformers. It was a huge success! From there, the rest was history. The Transformers invade planet Earth.

Unlike many rich kids, I couldn't afford a Transformer toy when I was a kid. I could only play my neighbour's toys. Throughout my childhood I never owned a Transformers toy, only a few Thundercats toys.

The introduction of the Transformers (cartoon) the movie back then brought more attention to the series. From there, the series eventually went unpopular in years later on.

The series that came with Generation 2, Beast wars and Beast machines. Only then when Car Robots series were shown, it caught my attention again. My supported my younger brother to collect the series where later I got addicted to it.

I started my Transformers collections 6-7 years ago. Getting the right book to keep intact what to get and also hooked on eBay for the more vintage collections. From toys collecting, I met lots of collectors and fans. Many that wouldn't believe how huge my collections was.

* Ultra Rare G1 Collections include Headmaster Scorponok, Leokaiser, Star Saber, Omega Supreme and Overlord...

As time goes by, I joined Transmy, Malaysia's Biggest Transformers Fan Club. Later on, they made me a moderator.

At the peak of my Transformers collecting, I had around 600 pieces of different Transformers toys. I sold partial of them out as it put a lot of weight on my credit card bill.

*Generation 1 collections...
*Generation 1 collections...
*Complete Takara Book Reissues...
*Some of the boxes of the G1 Japanese Series Transformers includes Victory Series and Masterforce series...
*Some of the boxes of the G1 Japanese Series and American Hasbro Series...

I probably left around 300-500 pieces of Transformers toys now.

*Part of my toy room...

*My segment starts at 2:35 but there's some problem with this video, I will upload again once I'm free...

I was once interviewed by TV3's Remaja for my toys collecting passion. Something that I'm very proud of until today.

*Me being Optimus Prime wannabe with real Soundwave transformed to a mp3 player!

In 2005, a big news hit the Transformers fandom. A movie shall be made for Transformers. Millions of Transformers fans talked about it. The first initial director for the movie was Steven Spielberg! Everyone was happy when the rumors spread out. Yet, until Michael Bay (a non Transformers fan) announced as the director, many opposed. During the initial planning stages, some fans eventually hacked to Bay's computer and retrieved the original artwork of Transformers The Movie. The artwork then spreaded across the Internet and millions of Transformers couldn't believe what they've seen! Abuses and hate mails were then hurled to Michael Bay.

Yet, when the movie screened in 2007, it became an overnight success. Within the first few weeks, the trilogy was announced. Michael Bay didn't let the millions of Transformers fans down unlike Dragonball's James Wong. He revolutionised Transformers.

At the same time, United International Pictures Malaysia brought the movie in for the local fans. Without UIP, there's no Transformers The Movie in Malaysia. I'm really grateful because I watched the movie the same week as in US. In fact, I watched it a few days earlier in the Transformers Premiere organized by UIP for Transmy. In return, Transmy collaborated with UIP to produce the FIRST Robotcon in Malaysia at CineLeisure.

Local collectors (includes me) brought our toys to Robotcon to showcase our toys to the local public. We hired our own security guards to guard the "love of our lives".

*The Transmy Moderators...
*The collections of the rare Generation 1 toys...
*The Transmyians...

The movie's success also brought another problem. The shortage of the toys. Thousands of movie lovers flocked to local toy stores to find that most of the toys were sold out.

tf-movie-mad rush

People queued and rushed to any shop that had the toys. This was taken at a local toy shop and many were waiting for the Transformers toys.


Of course, I got prepared and had mine...

So then, Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen is coming by end month. I'm getting ready to watch the movie multiple times again.


And also I already made my move and purchased some of the Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen toys.

This could be my longest post I did in my blog.

After so many years, I still can't get enough of Transformers! Will UIP nice enough to give me some tickets for the Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen Premiere Tickets as well as the toys?

It will all depends on them.

But at the mean time, I'll get entertain by my beloved Bumblebee....

With over 190,000 hits on Youtube, MY Bumblebee still sings to me!


I'll be THERE!!


Me with my Transformers Shirt on top of Broga Hill @ 14th June 2009. One more week to go!

Post Japan Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Premiere Spoilers

TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN held its world premiere in Tokyo, Japan on Monday. Now word is coming out from the few that saw it. The Don Murphy Message Boards' member Wonkimus_Major was one of the lucky few and he's got a whole lotta spoilers to share.
Believe me, I didn't even read all of them, just glanced, trying to be pleasantly surprised instead of knowing the movie beat for beat when it comes out.

He obviously liked the film and says it's much better than the first one. Here are some excerpts from his post head over to the original posting linked above for the full recap,

Movie was incredible, I liked it much more than the first! More action, more robots, less humans! Though there are some lame sexual inuendos like Wheelie humping Megan's leg.

Soundwave only has a few lines but he speaks English. But he never comes down to earth and never turns into a robot. Bleah. Very little screen time, but at least he doesn't get exploded which leaves things open for the third movie.

The Twins were lame. As in the "bust a cap in you ass" stereotype.

Jetfire was comic relief. He has a British accent and reminded me of a Monty Python character. He doesn't "combine" with Prime in the normal sense, he gets fatally wounded and rips out his spark, killing himself so Prime can use his parts.

Sideways never transforms, he is cut in half by Sideswipe in the first battle scene in car mode.

...in the last battle scene there were tons of, well, "repaints," basically reused animation. So even after Devastator forms, there are still constructicons running around. And some Protoforms.

Scorponok is in the final battle too and is killed by Jetfire in about 2 seconds.

TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN opens in U.S. theaters June 24.

I Completed Malakoff 2009 Run In Penang

This is my 3rd run in my life and this year so far.

The first run was in February, the KL City Day Run. It was a 10km run. Read more about it HERE.

The second run was the New Balance 15km Run last month. Heck it was damn hard. Read more about it HERE.

Well, I was running 6km for Malakoff 2009. I thought it was easy. Damn I was so wrong!

My run started at 6.30 am. The first few km was easy, later on I realized I was gasping for air. As we were running near the sea, the air contains salt and the air was drier. The result was lesser oxygen and hotter. I practically gave up on 3km and started to walk back. I almost finished last this time around. The other reason was fatique. On Saturday I drove around 4-5 hours from KL to Penang and that excludes the whole day trip we had in Penang. Anyways I finished the run lamely in 58 minutes. Damn paiseh.


So then, I waited there for Rachel as she participated the 26km run. She started at 5.30 am. I sat at the finishing area from 7.30 am to 9.00 am. I saw quite a number of people finishing the 26km run. In fact, there were a few people finished the 26km run before I did. Damn shy. Around 9.00 am, I saw an ambulance came in and I saw Rachel got out from the ambulance. I was worried, I ran over to the first aid area. Rachel was very pissed. She told me the run was more than 26km and she was totally exhausted. Rachel ran 23km. I'm proud of her as she can easily participate 1/2 marathon by now while I'm still struggling for 6km.

No matter how, it was a good run. I'm in need of time to practice for end month's Standard Chartered Run. Time's running out!

Friday, June 05, 2009

I'll be running in Penang

Yes! I'll be running in Penang this weekend. Its for the Malakoff run. I'll running for the 6km instead of 26km. I've not been in any training yet but 6 km should be fine. Will have a wholesome Penang makan-makan session this weekend.

*I'd been concentrating updating my food blog (www.placesandfoods.com) and neglected this blog. I know lately, the posts had been a bit boring, I'll improve it in time. Thanks for your patience and more to come soon. Thanks 4 reading.

She fires a huge beam at Barragan and there's an explosion?

My First Washing Machine

Rachel bought our the first washing machine last week. Its just one of things that we need for our house.

washing machine

After looking around shopping for our washing machine, I guess we got a quiet a sweet deal from Harvey Norman that includes a 5 years warranty. Since its just 2 of us, we decided to get something in medium size. 5-6 kg is just too small to wash the comforters while 8 kg and above is just too big for 2 of us. We decided to get a 7 kg range for our house.

Why LG? Apparently, there's few friends are using LG and they were satisfied with it. No problems or such. We locked down our budget around 2k and we locked down to 2 brands, Electrolux and LG. Of course, LG wil be always cheaper. We went through a few stores and found a display unit for sale. The salesman extended the warranty to 5 years for free and we had a deal. They then deliver the washing machine to my place within 3 days. They were punctual with their delivery time and I can say they were very professional.

Will start to use it soon.

Monsters Vs Alien 3D Review

I thought I will heart this movie. Seriously....

Since Bolt 3D, I don't really mind paying extra few dollars for 3D movies. 3D could be the future of movies. Seriously....

Back to the movie, I seriously thought I would love the movie. But... but... but.. the movie is not as good as I expected. There's few jokes here and there. Few funny scenes but it lacks of depth. I know its an animation movie but still, something is missing there. The storyline is so simple, anyone could guessed the ending after watching like half an hour?

Don't get me wrong, I like the movie but it could be much better.

Bring your kids to laugh this out. Its a kids movie.... Remember to go the 3D cinema, its so much better!
