of SBG and True Story Movies


Sabah Bloggers Gathering
in 2 days people! @_@ No, I'm not paranoid (*indenial). Serious! I'm not panicking. *shows serious face (failed attempt btw). Ogie, lets move on. Everyone been bz thinking of what to wear to this event. As for me, I have a mind set to what to wear. I'm going as myself! Shirt and jeans it is! I don't care whatever you people gonna say. *kici mata. Stop freaking me out. *FOCUS! I am focus! @_@"""

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone on Saturday. LETS BEAT THE SABAH TIME PEOPLE AND GET FREEBIES MWAHAHAHHA. This is the part where I sound a bit "melebeh lebeh".

Anyways, I took the day off yesterday. No, I'm not lazy and I'm no boss. *roll eyes at Panja. I have my reasons. Seriously I do. And that would be coz of knee attack. Yes, you heard me. I got ready yesterday morning and when I was about to go off to work, well actually after I turned off my computer and stand, erm I actually couldn't. Well I could, just that I could stand properly. My left knee is giving me problems. Normally it would take me few minutes to recover from that sudden knee pain but unfortunately for yesterday, I wasn't able to move my left leg that much till it was 1pm. *sigh. I must have eaten something I shouldn't. I don't recall what though. Well ogie maybe I know but it didn't give me any problem till yesterday. So yeah. Even sitting down is painful around my knee. And unfortunately for me, I didn't have any medicine left, so I had to endure the pain till it goes away. Even though I'm a cry baby, pain is something I can handle. Yeap, suck it all up.

That said, no worries people. My legs are fine. I was able to drive to work today.


Anyways, that whole knee story is all done now. Now lets start to the movie marathon I had from yesterday. I was having my dinner till I found a movie called Flyboys. Inspired by a true story, this movie which was released on 2006.

Plot

A group of young Americans go to France, for different personal reasons, and volunteer to fight in the French Air Service, L'Aéronautique militaire, during World War I prior to America's entrance into the war. One of the main characters, Blaine Rawlings (James Franco) faced with the foreclosure of his family ranch in Texas, decides to enlist after seeing a newsreel of aerial combat in France. Dilettante Briggs Lowry (Tyler Labine) joins because of his overbearing father. African-American boxer Eugene Skinner (Abdul Salis) who had been accepted as an athlete in France was motivated to "pay back" his adopted country. These American recruits were under the command of French Captain Georges Thenault (Jean Reno) while the veteran fighter ace Reed Cassidy (Martin Henderson), a fellow American, takes over as their mentor.

During their training, the film mainly deals with the struggles each pilot has with the demanding flying; later, the focus shifts to the aerial dogfights that dominate the front line missions. Themes of camaraderie, racial prejudice, revenge and love are also explored. The film ends with an epilogue that relates each film character to the real-life Lafayette Escadrille figures on which the movie was based.

I watched this on Astro. Check the listings, who knows you might be able to watch it. I love this movie.

Well I thought I was gonna blog about this movie yesterday but I actually posted about it at clickstartplay forum. But what actually made me decided to blog about it today is coz I watched another GREAT MOVIE.


This movie is based on a true story. Waw. I wonder what's installed for me tomorrow night *giggles. I'm excited. Anyways, this movie was released in 1999. Can't believe I've never watched it till today, this very moment. Where have I been?! This movie is based on a true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner's son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father's wishes.

Oh waw, what's wrong with me? I seldom type this long *cough @_@""" I'm sorry. And thank yew for reading *PEACE~

Why do people complain?

Today's subject is: Why do people complain? More specifically, why does massy complains so much?

Simple answer would normally be, "coz I just do". Well it's not really that simple. You see, I actually had this whole complaining post written in my head few days ago. Well it happens if you tend to think a lot like me or maybe you're so dissatisfied with life that you just gotta let it out by complaining.

Lets try not to go to the day where I started complaining or it'll be a never ending story. Lets start with today. I think complaining is one of the things I tend to do in my everyday life. I don't know why I do it. I just do. I think it's in my blood to do so too. Now I'm not making sense. But lets get to the part where I should make sense, shall we?

I made an appointment yesterday to service my car at Perodua today 10am. I actually woke up kinda early but this is one habit I'm trying to change. It's the part where I will be sitting in front of the computer everytime I woke up. It's a bad habit. I know, it's a sickness! I really mean it! IT IS! I wasn't late but I was there on time. I think Perodua system is like "first come first serve" basis where eventhough you've already made an appointment to service your car, your car will always, I mean will always be the next car serviced after the long lines "without appointments" cars. SERIOUSLY! I'm not kidding. I came around 10am, waited and I think they only started to check my car around 11am. I think la. And the whole servicing thinggie only finishes around 12:30 noon. I think la. If I look at my watch correctly. Well since I was bz playing games on my DS while waiting for it. And I was seriously hungry.

So, today's servicing cost me around RM298.35. Which is kinda ghey! Coz I normally pay around RM100++ for servicing. Reason? Change the stuff that never changed before. Well the initial cost was RM241.00++ but since there's an additional that needed to be changed, which I really don't have a choice (well they make it sound like I don't have a choice), it added an extra RM40++ to the cost. GG! These cost includes labor charges, air filters, break pads, wiper, engine oil etc etc, can't remember specifically what but I have the bill. Gosh how I wish my dad gimme money now. *rofl.

Here's a thought out note for my dad...

"DAD, IF YOU'RE READING MY BLOG, I NEED MONEY!!! OR GET ME A DSLR FOR MY BIRTHDAY TQ! "

Oh and for everyone else. Gimme moneh! I is wants moneh!!! $_$

I'm sorry, I'm not trying to sound desperate but my plan to get new GP2500 or maybe higher rechargeable batteries is sort of out of the question at this point. Geez, I was even thinking of getting some stuff and it's not even August yet. *sigh.

Wow at this point it's funny coz I seldom type this long. But I'm not done yet.

Anyways, I have taken some shots of those "money sucking" items as follows. Yes, anyone who owns a car will feel like this. Well so I think they would lah~


Oh and a shot of my legs *rofl


Ogie, 'nuff said from that part of the story. I got so hungry and it's lunch time. Well more like I went to the petrol station to fill em fuel. "fly away 50 and never come back T_T, I miss you dearly" *rofl. Sorry. I know, I don't really like to spend too much money at one time. I'll make me feel slightly depress. Back to lunch. Yeah, I called Amy and dori up for lunch at Poppea Garden Cafe at Citymall for that RM7.90 lunch set. I took some photos to make you guys drool too *giggles.




I was there till 2pm. This is one of the reasons why I took leave yeap.

I was planning to get some donuts but since I forked out the above mentioned $$ for car servicing, I canceled that plan. I was suppose to meet a friend up at CIMB bank, UMS around noon but instead I went there around 2pm-ish. Well, changing your address could be a hassle. I actually hated changing my address. Same goes to moving around. Yes people! I moved around too often that it gets on my nerves coz I have to change school/house/address all the time. *sigh.

Lets move on. I drove to UMS, well I got slightly lost coz I've never been to CIMB bank branch there. I think I called my friend more than 3 times for direction. Or was it less than that? I even parked at the wrong side of the building. But heck, it's worth the exercise. It's only few steps/stairs away. *giggles. But thanks to my friend for helping me out with that. Appreciate that. Oh yeah, it's the 1st time for me to use the cash deposit machine at CIMB. Yes, I'm such a newb. It's actually easy. The whole over thinking paranoia I had, that was the problem. I'm fine now. Let me try to do things once? or make that few times, I'll be fine. I think I was home around 4pm.

Geez I can't even remember. Anyways, I think I'm done for today, well maybe not, coz I got some stuff in my mind. But, before I end this post for today. I would like to remind everyone who haven't register themselves for Sabah Bloggers Gathering, please do so!!! Don't miss out on the fun!!!

Reminder!!!!


Yeah, I'm anxious to meet everyone. That I've never meet before. Ogie, here's one thing I would wish to say to everyone and here goes...


Dear bloggers/everyone,

"
My deepest apologies if I didn't approach you to say Hi or talk to you at SBG, coz I tend to get paranoid around people I seldom talk to face to face and I tend to over think how to initiate a conversation with people I never talk in real life. Thank yew very much for your kind attention"

Sincerely;
Mas Light

Seriously. I'm not kidding. I'm a very quiet person and I'm not a snob. I sort of have this split personality. I can't explain why. It's just the way I am.

Have fun reading now XD

Last nite, we went to Kedai Kopi Hilltop to eat!!! Grilled Stingray! Erm ngam ka translation? XD Pari bakar!!! Check out em rave, here.

Oh yeah, if you planning to eat here, those western fewd and pari bakar take a bit time to prepare/get ready. If you have no patience, eat something else XD

We had 2 pari bakar. Each for RM16.

Destressing with Fruit Juice

Before I start writing about what I really should, I would before that, seek answer for this.

Is this another branch for Tune.hotel, or RED is the new color? I'm just curious that's all.

It's gloomy today here in Kota Kinabalu (*weather forecasting).

I was so stressed out yesterday that I couldn't even blog hop. *sigh. It was bad, it's like reading nothing. So instead of reading anything or chat with everyone or browsing through the forums. I bore myself with some games at orangeshark.com. No I'm not promoting that site, I just don't have the mood to do anything really.

A last minute plan by Panja. We (dori, me, panja, dizzy and jack) went to Tg. Aru for some Fruit Juice around 7pm (Sabah time would make that 7:30pm roughly). I thought I was late but I reach there before 7:30pm. I ordered a Large Watermelon Juice. *slurps~ tasty~ Everyone of us had a large glass of fruit juice. Each of these fruit juice cost RM4. Regular RM3. Trust me, get the large glass! It's worth it! Oh yeah and if it's ice blended? I think it cost more. RM5 maybe? Come to think of it. I didn't take any photos of the glass. But I took some shots of us. Hehe.


this shot is to show how thick the avacado drink is

dizzy chan and me X3 and that unfinish avocado is not mine XP

notice the tissue on dori's shoulder. it's panja's doing *rofl XD

We were there for less than 2 hours. I'm stuffed. The next time I'm gonna have fruit juice, I'll make sure I don't eat dinner. It's like a meal! I wanna try the ice blended dragonfruit juice. I was holding my bladder all the way back home *rofl. But I had fun. It was a great way to destress. Fruit juice makes you go slightly looney. Well or maybe it's just me. Well I got nice people as my companion. That's why XD

Oh yeah btw, I was gonna blog about having dinner at Eddie's D'Corner, Lintas the other day but didn't have the mood to. I think I posted the photos before, here. This time I get to eat it. Mint sauce *slurps~ Oooo next time I wanna eat chicken chop. I rike em chickens.

Shopping + Wedding

I dunno what's wrong with me but I've been shopping since last Tuesday *slaps self. From that day, I bought myself 2 new pants and 2 new blouse. Well see, it's not that bad. Even when it add up, it still considered minimal. I'm still deciding how to cut my MNG pants. Since my height is considered average "shortness", I had to cut more than 5" of cloth from it. *sigh, I don't think I can do that. ARGH! Help!

I'm so tired today. I've been out since morning to look for more clothes. Had brunch at KK Plaza food court. Check out em fewd.



I went back home around 5pm, got out again around 7pm to attend one of my childhood friend's wedding.

Chung Hwa Likas Kindergarten. Anyone can spot me and him in this photo *giggles

I know this dood since kindergarten. All grown up now. Congratulation again Tie!

I got there around 7:30pm. Before seated. Autograph! Yes I'm famous! *giggles.


Well since I didn't get to take photos of the fewd. Here, I show you guys the menu instead. SEDAP! XD I'm stuffed! Oh yeah, in return, for attending the wedding, you get these. Oh and cake! XD


I didn't get much shot coz I was seated far away from the stage T_T. I blame Titie for this. Gimme your wedding photo! Hmph. Btw, here's some shots that I manage to take. *giggles. Oh yeah, the fewd was great! I'm stuffed! (massy wonders if Titie even reads her blog @_@)


That pretty much sums up my day today. Tiring indeed. Oh yeah who went to the SIA Concert at Kian Kok? Linkie me plz XD

Dark Knight

From my previous entry. I went to watch "Dark Knight" today at Cathay for the 1st show! It was around 10:05pm. It rained heavily earlier. I fear that I might not be able to make it if it keeps pouring. But before that, here's some photos of my tickets from earlier and yes, I got free poster! XD Well more like a mini poster. Heheh.

From our earlier plan, I was expecting roughly 14 people that I know to watch this movie as the same time as I do. But, here's the kick. There were actually, if I'm not mistaken, 20 people (bloggers and forumers) that went to watch this 1st show. KEWL!!!

I can't say much about the movie coz I know most of you people haven't watch it yet. But I can say, Heath Ledger as the Joker is absolutely BRILLIANT!!! 'nuff said.

It's a combination of humor, action and suspense. Oh yeah and the surround sound. I think I'm partially deaf, ogie I'm exaggerating, what's in my head now is the sound of gunshots @_@ Damn that's loud. The movie is damn AWESOME! I love it!

Well exclude the part where some of the scenes were cut off @_@

"Cathay, what's with all that "stunt" you pull off earlier man"

You guys spoiling all the fun. It's like taking candy from a baby. *sigh. Anyways all I gotta say, overall this movie is a *double thumbs up! For me. If you don't agree with me, then shut up! XD I'm free to express my thoughts *giggles.

Oh yeah, here's a tribute for Heath Ledger as THE JOKER from me and my friends again.

I so totally recommend everyone to watch this! XD I'm uber excited but it's already 2am and I should sleep. Wok wok wok~ XD

of ACCIDENTS and SUNSET

First of all, I would like to apologize coz I can't think of a title *giggles.

Second of all, I'll be watching DARK KNIGHT tonight!!!! MWAHHAHAHAH!

Ogie, allow me to start my post.

There was an accident near my area yesterday. No I wasn't bz body, it's just one of those moments where I need something to blog about *giggles. Ogie maybe not. So, here's some shots I took. You guys need not to know where I shoot from. Hehe. It happened around 9:20am or earlier than that. Between a Satria Neo driver and a Nissan X-trail driver @_@

The first thing they did, got out of the car and argue. Typical. It was drizzling rain. I wonder why they even standing in the middle of the rain. @_@ Unexplainable human behavior.

Look at the damage.



The police came around 9:30am. Took photos and details and all of them left after that.


Who's at fault? You tell me XD

Everything else yesterday was like a blur. I can't really remember what I did *rofl. Or maybe I could only it's not important hehe. I asked my 2nd sis to accompany me to 1Borneo. I need to do some shopping. Ogie fine! I actually saw this top at MNG the other day and wanted to get it! But when I went there, no more!!! T_T noooooooooo. Instead, I bought myself a pair of pants hehe. YAY! But as usual, I need to cut it. It's so not cater for short people like me *cries.

Opps, but before that, on the way there, I actually saw this beautiful sunset. I couldn't stop telling my sis how beautiful it is till I had to stop by and take some photos there. So, I did. Let us enjoy the view.

zoom it zoom it

view from the left

view from the right


Had dinner at Kenny Rogers. Set meal cost rM17.90 (some of it goes to charity). Includes salad, rice (you can change it to 1 side dish), quarter chicken with gravy of your choice and muffin (of your choice).

We were there till 10pm (referring to 1Borneo). Guess where we went? 2nd floor, DAISO!!!! Japanese stuff. Everything is RM5 OMG! You can't imagine how hyper me and my sis was. Well we can't stop putting stuff into our basket XD But I end up buying 2 item hehe. Must resist temptation.

WoW Boardgame

We had our DnD 4th Ed char gen last Saturday at Kopicat, KAC. I'm an Eladrin Necro *cough cough. NO! I'm not a corpse!!! Started around 3pm, finished around 5pm. I went home before 6pm with 2 tapau, 1 for me and the other for my sis.

Uncle msg me on msn for a World of WarCraft (or better known as WoW) boargame session at Bryan's house. @_@ that's the most last minute plan ever! We were suppose to meet up at Eddie's (ngam ka nama ni tempat?) at Lintas around 8pm for dinner. I had my dinner. *blames uncle. Oh yeah, this place is facing the road, same row as Klinik Kissey. Here's what they had.

Fish and chips


Mix grill


Is this chicken chop ka? @_@ Sorry I forgot


Oh yeah and if you're curious to whether this place is halal or not? YES it is HALAL! XD

After dinner, we stop by Yoyo to get some drinks. Jasmine tea X3 I love.

Mind you, we're suppose to meet up at Bryan's around 8pm. But, I think we got there around nearly 10pm? Was it 10pm? I think it's 10pm. *rofl.

Max no. of players: 6

There are 16 heroes from 9 classes and 8 races to choose from (i.e. druid, shaman, fighter, paladin etc).


Here's some of the photos from that night.



event cards, spawn cards, dices and tokens

you need em dice rolls to attack/defend XD

Reason for staying awake?

chocolates are EBIL!!!! EBIL i tells j00

hands up

Since mas wasn't playing. Yes, I was observing. I took the time to arrange these tokens *cough cough. I'm not bored, no, I'm not a neat person, I just like em organized *giggles.


After few hours playing, the chairs are not needed *rofl Too excited that everyone want to stand instead. Lol


They played till 4:30am. The last round was to defeat the boss. Lord Kazzak. They died @_@ *rofl. I guess most of us were too sleepy to stay awake, hence the sucky dice rolls *rofl


I stayed coz I wanna observe. To conclude the whole observing process. I find this game interesting, compared to StarCraft. But time consuming. I think it'll be less time consuming if everyone gets it. Overall it's fun XD

Since I wanted to complete this post faster and I'm lacking on info, I'll let the expert explain mwahahhaha, I shall upload most of the other photos at my facebook account hehe. (*sloth)
