Nuffnang Premiere: G.I. Joe: Retaliation Movie Review

After a long awaiting period of 3 years finally the Joes are back, the new film G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a continuation of the first movie, with a huge difference in terms of cast and crew and in the overall plot.

The previous G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra focuses on an elite military unit of exceptional Joes who face off against the notorious arms dealer and his evil organisation. Whereas in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the unit was framed and a small team of ‘renegade’ Joes which survived the ambush authorise by their ‘own president’ is what remains to clear their name.

There’s non-stop parade of martial arts action, combats, bombs, and double-crosses throughout the movie, also fancy high-tech weapons and gears, which feels pretty much like the Rise of Cobra. Basically G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a package of high standard Hollywood action movie, with precise calculation of climax & standout sequence, nicely done 3D, a very entertaining film for action movie lovers who enjoy seeing things blow up real good. However to me personally it’s still a bit lack of suspense and depth as the story line is straight forward and predictable.

Still this is a movie worth watching as the big explosions, action set pieces plus some humours touches will ensure everyone to have a good time, also the performance of Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis are solid and they do make a good team :)

Thanx to Nuffnang MY fr d tics ^__^

Twin Towers @live 2013: Day 2 ft. Backstreet Boys & 2NE1 ♪~

My love with music started when I was 12 & Backstreet Boys is the 1st American vocal harmony group which caught my attention (and later on comes Westlife, Blue, 'N Sync which are awesome~fantastic 90's :D). The greatest & best-selling boy band of all time released their debut international album, Backstreet Boys in 1996, since then BSB music has been part of my life, I grew up listen to them and till now their songs are still on my favourite list. b^^d

And thanks to Twin Tower@Live 2013 I finally get to meet with my All-Time Favourite band LIVE on stage!!! *Cheers Clap Shout Hands in the air* XD~ Well that’s not all, inheriting the line-up arrangement of last year the musical extravaganza which was held on March 22&23, 2013 at the base of Kuala Lumpur’s iconic Petronas Twin Towers had bring in not one but TWO star-studded international artistes per day, so guess who came up with BSB then?..Yeah that’s right they are one of the forefront worldwide K-Pop Invasion team——2NE1!! *high pitched shout*

Twin Towers @Live 2013 was definitely an enjoyable night, the hardware (PA, stage, venue) score a perfect 10 however the time arrangement and flow would need a BIG improvement, cutting off some vague performance and balance up with what the audience really wanna see plus a more precise starting time would be great. Anyway again a thousand thanks to HelloKpop for the tics & Twin Towers@Live 2013 for sponsoring the giveaway and efforts in organising the event. Looking forward for a even better music gala on March 2014! :)

Have you ever had that kind of feeling where you attended an AWESOME party which, even few days afterwards you'll still goes LOL remembering all those great times you had & cool people you've met? Well that is exactly the kinda feeling I had after the Arthur Guinness St. Patrick's Pub Crawl 2013~  held last Friday! So here's a little something I got from G2 Public Relations which is pretty useful for all those lucky winners of GUINNESS® Black Brew—— A special Guinness Inspired Recipes via GUINNESS’ in-house chef, Justin O’Connor ^_^

——Press Release——

March 19, 2013 - St Patrick’s Day has always been about the time to get out and about with your mates, celebrating with a pint of GUINNESS. And with its month long celebration this year, why not create a food feast, too? With the right recipes, you’ll be able to gather your friends and family around the table and as you serve up a fantastic spread, you’ll wow them with your culinary skills using the ‘black stuff’.

GUINNESS’ in-house chef, Justin O’Connor, has shared 14 easy-to-make recipes, each of which makes use of the complex flavour of the stout in a unique way. In addition to lunch and dinner dishes, Justin has also produced delicious recipes for sweet cakes, brownies and candies, proving just how versatile cooking with GUINNESS can be.

Some of Justin’s recipes are brand new, while others have been sourced from the GUINNESS archive detailing how GUINNESS has been used as an ingredient in cooking over 250 years.  Some of the mouth-watering recipes include, Lamb Kebabs with Guinness Marinade, Guinness Chocolate Brownies, Irish Lamb Stew and Guinness Chocolate Mousse.

Justin, executive chef, GUINNESS Storehouse, comments:
 ‘GUINNESS is ideal for cooking because it contains several discrete flavours that bring other ingredients to life. I use its sweetness in cakes, brownies and ice cream, its salt flavour to compliment meat in stews and its citrus note gives a zing to food like pork chops’
Added to this, the unique colour and texture of the stout is put to good use in the rack of lamb recipe, providing it with a glossy finish similar to wine’

Finally, if you are looking for a special aperitif to serve as part of your GUINNESS themed night in, why not mix up a Black Velvet Royale. A unique twist on the classic Black Velvet cocktail, the Black Velvet Royale consists of GUINNESS, Champagne and a splash of Cassis and is the perfect accompaniment to help revellers celebrate in style this St Patrick’s Day.

For those of you who want to try some of these mouth watering dishes but just want it served up in a nice platter all ready to be digged in, don’t fret. Choose from our list of outlets participating in the month long Guinness St Patrick’s celebrations! Yes, the party still continues throughout the month of March with delicious Guinness St Paddy dishes and of course great promotions on your favourite black brew!
