Street Photography – Jalan Ipoh

Two weeks ago went for a bit of so-called street photography session with the Alpha kaki comprising Wingz, Ho, and Tony..

Attended a Sony Alpha so-called workshop and our assignment was street photography, themed KL something something..Forgotten already..

So out we went shooting..Well, not something great or creative or unique because we were kinda lazy..

DBKL or not, I bet the people didn’t really feel their authority presence..

Was waiting for an empty street but it’s almost impossible on a Saturday morning..

jalan ipoh
*Traffic congestion*

I guess it’s quite a norm, what’s more a Saturday morning..

*JT*

Is it JT or something else? I’ve forgotten what does the JT stands for, for I know it won’t be Justin Timberlake nor John Terry :P

*Use the pedestrian bridge*

Use the pedestrian bridge or pedestrian crossing is always the better choice but in Malaysia, we do it the Malaysian way!

jalan ipoh
*A home*

Don’t you feel grateful albeit wherever you are living now?

And that wrapped up our lazy street photography..LOL..We only walked around the same area for not more than one hour I guess..

Yes indeed it was a very lazy one, but it’s good enough for me to get my gears working again..

The Cure – Lullaby Acoustic Version

The Cure, and English rock band formed Crawley, West Sussex in 1976..Their debut album “Three Imaginary Boys” was released in 1979..

That album had placed them as part of post-punk and New Wave movements in the pioneers of punk rock revolution in the UK..

Their current remaining members are the one and only constant member frontman Robert Smith (guitars), Porl Thompson (guitars, keyboards), Simon Gallup (bass, keyboards), and Jason Cooper (drums, percussion)..

Yes! The rock band is still around rocking the music scene..

The Cure has been tagged somewhat one of the pioneers in gothic rock and even alternative rock, before the latter broken into mainstream..

“Lullaby”, one of the most famous songs from their goth-influenced album “Disintegration” (1989), sounds quite dark and gloomy yet the tune is quite mellow..

From the original music video, it can be seen that the theme is so dark and all, and you can also see the gothic make-up on the band members, looking like Joker ala Heath Ledger..

Although both album and acoustic versions sounds almost alike, personally, I find the acoustic version of “Lullaby” quite addictive and actually nicer than the original album version..

Here’s The Cure‘s Lullaby lyrics and music video of both original MTV and acoustic version..

The Cure – Lullaby

On candystripe legs spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
Suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
Room! and there is nothing i can do when i
Realise with freight that the spiderman is having
Me for dinner tonight

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
Closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
Softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
Arms are all around me and his tongue in my
Eyes “be still be calm be quiet now my precious
Boy don’t struggle like that or i will only love
You more for it’s much too late to get away or
Turn on

Instant Noodles – PAMA Kua Teaw Segera

Instant noodles are my best friends during the midnight..

PAMA Kua Teaw Segera is definitely one of my favorite brands and flavors..Other than the Kua Teaw (Kuey Teow) PAMA also have Vermicelli (Bihun/Mihun/Mee Hoon), which is the only Bihun that I would buy..

*PAMA Kua Teaw Segera*

It’s not the clear chicken soup kinda flavor..It has curry powder to be added on..

*The finer kuey teow*

This kuey teow is of course firmer than those kuey teow you usually had for fish ball noodles or pork noodles..

*Hot boiling kuey teow and curry powder*

This kuey teow is almost same like vermicelli, you don’t have to cook it for too long if you want the firm texture to stay..

*Smooth slurpy kuey teow*

Add an egg into the noodles is a must for most of my instant noodles supper..

Now you know you just have to try this, if you don’t dislike vermicelli :D

Deja Voodoo Spells, one of the hard rock outfits in Malaysia and they were indeed rocking the house down! Their instrumental piece was kinda euphoric and their cover of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was rocking too..

It was quite a rare scene to see so many top notch local artistes together in an event and it’s FREE~!!! Well let Rock The World alone coz you have to pay for it..LOL..

Kinda enjoyed myself and I didn’t have to push around and they gave out so many freebies including air tickets to abroad, including Bali, Phnom Penh, and few more destinations..

Though I didn’t won any but I’m looking forward for more low fare tickets! :D

Shrek The Final Chapter 3D : Forever After – Non Spoiler

Shrek franchise is back and in its Final Chapter called Shrek The Final Chapter : Forever After..

Was telling some friends that I was going to watch Shrek 4, most of them went “What Shrek 4?? it’s the 3rd only right??”..

Even I got confused myself after..One thing for sure, I could remember the trilogy has finished and I was surprised when I saw the trailer for Forever After..

shrek-forever-after-2010-cd-cover-27440

And so, it’s confirmed it’s the 4th instalment and perhaps the last one in Shrek franchise..

To be honest, I’ve never really sat down and watch the first 2 Shrek movies before, where the first two movies said to be the most successful in its franchise, let alone the 3rd one..

Shrek The Final Chapter is about Shrek living happily with Princess Fiona and their 3 children..

For Shrek being an ogre, he’s not used to the peaceful life of the fairy tales and nursery rhymes where the “live happily ever after” quote is applied..

So Shrek wanted to experience his ogre-life once again and that’s where Rumplestilskin (or just Rumple) comes into play..

shrek-forever-after

And so the main plot starts from Shrek trying to get his life back, in a way or another..Hehe..

I’ve watched this Forever After in 3D (thanks to UIP), unfortunately I couldn’t really feel much of the 3D effect..Or maybe I was expecting too much? It’s my second 3D movie anyway, first one being How To Train Your Dragon..

I can’t really compare this with the first 3 since I’ve never really watched those but as Shrek is concerned, it’s always a good family movie..

I would rate it at 7/10..See for youself for your own rating ;)
