Nuffnang Premiere Screening: Thor - The Dark World movie review

“Some believe that before the universe there was nothing.. They're wrong, there was Darkness..”

After a couple of years the God of Thunder returns, this time to stand against an ancient dark force, trying to save the universe from a devastating destruction..

Story line: “Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.  In the aftermath of Marvel’s ‘Thor’ and “Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.  Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.”

When it comes to The Avengers superhero series of Marvel Studios films, an action blockbuster thriller is pretty much what to be expect, so being a sequel of Thor 2011, Thor: The Dark World does carry lots of expectation loads on its shoulder, and I can assure you Marvel fans out there this is a sequel that will not disappoint you. ^^ despite the luscious Asgardian action, stunning visual & audio and some endearing character beats, the affluent slightly twisted story line & perfect touch of humour is what I like the most about the movie, not to mention the sate-of-art CGI, a big hand for the production team. *clapclap*

Thor: The Dark World has proven itself to be as good as both the first movie (if not better) and it’s Avengers ally Iron Man 3 which came up earlier this year, a definite worth watching movie to end your October in a blast. A small reminder for the viewers, do stick around until the end as there’re not one but TWO after-credit scenes you wouldn’t wanna miss. :D      

Thnx to NuffnangMY fr d tics ^^

[Food Review] OpenRice MakanVenture @ Dong Yi Shun Chinese Muslim Restaurant

Since my China backpacking trip few months ago my crave for authentic chinese cuisine never stops, so when I got an invitation from OpenRice MakanVenture to try out the Chinese Muslim restaurant Dong Yi Shun (东伊顺) @ Dataran Glomac Kelana Jaya, I was pretty excited hoping that this could be my crave-stop remedy.. So how was it you ask? Well let's just say the quest searching for authentic chinese cuisine continue.. -_____-

Dong Yi Shun @C-G-06, Ground Floor, Dataran Glomac, Jalan SS6/5B, Kelana Jaya, 
Petaling Jaya, 47301 Selangor 

Don’t get me wrong though, the food here at Dong Yi Shun is quite nice for a chinese muslim restaurant in malaysia & they come with a presentable plating plus a very reasonable price. Also their warm welcoming services by those lovely and sincere waiters is something that I would give credit to. ^^ However the drawn back here is that the taste of most dishes we tried just wasn’t satisfying enough as I was expecting a little bit more from this well develop franchise originated from China since they are a well develop group with more than 10 restaurants around Ningbo, Hangzhou, Yiwu & over 10 years of experience in serving Chinese Muslim food. Personally most of the dishes aren’t really close to what I had back in China, probably because of the changes in taste they made to suit the appetite of locals, some might find it a thoughtful gesture however I still favors the authentic recipe.

a glimpse of the menu & what we had :)

Overall what standout among all the food that we tried would be their beef & other meat based dishes. The nicely marinated tender meat which coated with assorted herbs and spices are simply aromatic & irresistible. The minced beef filling for Xiao Long Bao & Pan Fried Dumpling are pretty impressive too & they would've been perfect if not for the lack of juicy broth. As for the rest of the food, average & decent would be my word of description. -___-

Golden Empress Fragrant Fish.
Spicy chicken.
Xiao Long Bao
Golden Salted Pepper Prawn
Pan Fried Dumpling
Zi Ran Beef
Spicy Sliced Potato
Handmade La Mian (pulled noodles) made on the spot upon order.
For noodles lovers, don't forget to try out their handmade La Mian, a huge bowl of delightful springy thin noodles made by constant pulling, twisting & tossing of a lump of dough via the muslim chef originated from china.^^
Seafood La Mian
Hot & Sour Soup
So if you're looking for a decent chinese muslim restaurant with reasonable price somewhere around kelana jaya, Dong Yi Shun (东伊顺) would be a nice option to be taken into consideration.
