Coming Soon: Quantum of Solace

October 27, 2008 3 comments

Babies Boomers enjoy watching Bond because of the series of events happened back then during the cold war’s period and spying between US and Russia. Being born in the 80’s gave you no choice but to accept James Bond is a must-see movie for everyone. My dad, who doesn’t watch movies, only brought me to cinema to see Bond. To be frank, I find the chronicles of Bond were hilarious and I didn’t enjoy even one bit. Not until Casino Royale (2006).

Ian Fleming

Ian Fleming was the creator of James Bond 007. He was a British author, journalist and Second World War Navy Commander. That’s why he got the entire idea of what should Bond’s chronicles be and he wrote 12 James Bond novels. I would say Ian Fleming was the main architect of Bond’s World.

Sean Connery

Now, since Ian Fleming was the creator of James Bond. Who perfected Bond? Sean Connery is the FATHER of all the James Bonds; role model of what should the next James Bond looks like or acts. Every single James Bonds had been compared with him relatively.

Personally, I think Sean Connery put a great amount of charm into 007. His voice and the way he presented his commanding conversation inspired many.

Everyone knows this phrase by Sean Connery “My name is Bond….. James Bond…”

Slow enough to show his mysterious and powerful enough to provoke all his enemies.

And that’s why he earned the phrase

”Guys want to be HIM! and girls want to be with HIM!”

Daniel Craig earned his “license to kill” and adopted the new “007”

When Pierce Brosnan approaching 50th birthday, Bond franchise decided to replace Brosnan with younger actor. There was a lot of rumors and dispute in Bond franchise on the matters of deciding who will become the latest successor.

In the end Daniel Craig became the latest 007 since the franchise wanted a British to become the latest British super spy. At that point of time, a lot of disagrees and argument about him to become the latest 007.

Look at him when he 1st to be decided to become the 6th 007. He is not handsome, not sexy, not masculine, not fun, not charming, not famous, he’s blond etc…… no wonder there’s so much disappointment from others! (I’m one of those who disagree and I voted him out in the internet during that time. Anyway I voted Hugh Jackman to become the latest 007). What I knew was Craig was a good actor and that’s it.

Casino Royale 2006, revolutionized 007

The year 2006 put an Exclamation mark! In James Bond’s franchise history. Casino Royale the 1st Novel created by Fleming was put into movie.

This time Daniel Craig put a WOW in everyone’s expression when Casino Royale was made. He grows and there’s this wonderful aura coming out from him. A lot of physical training had been done by him and a more sophisticated new look.

Previous Bond emphasized a lot things which people like most are:

1. Bond is always SEXY and he shines among a bunch of people

2. Gadgets with sophisticated look but didn’t really put into good use.

3. Bond is a Hell of a fighter. He can do one-punch KO to everyone.

4. He got many sexyyy Bond girls. A lot and a hell of a lot of love making here and there.

5. Bond always win and he is always a superHERO and he works alone

Casino Royale threw all these elements away and adopted new ones. Which I think it revolutionized the entire Bond’s chronicles and fresh! The storyline is more dynamic, Bond is more human than before the action is real, no funkier gadgets, darker storyline, new tailored attire and the most importantly is Casino Royale developed more on Band’s behavior and inner conflict.

Everything is new for Bond, I must say that this show is some sort of DIY-British Superspy. I made some pictures from the movie and I hope you understand what I meant. A bit of comic work….

  1. He was a rookie at the beginning, he learned and he worked hard to confirm his 007 status
  2. He is rugged than his predecessors, quicker in his fight scene and of course dirtier
  3. Of course Casino Royale has a lot of gambling scene. It is very detail and interesting. They entire Casino flow was superb
  4. He was humiliated and tortured

James Bond side effect

I want to share with you all about what I think about James Bond’s side effect in the entire movie industry though out the years. It had inspired many other productions. Such as

xXx

AUSTIN POWERS


JOHNNY ENGLISH MOVIE


Stephen Chow’s China made 007

Now, let us be prepared for the long awaited Quantum of Solace.

Feed your car with JATROPHA

October 25, 2008 7 comments

Have you ever thought that whenever you start your car, you are actually hurting our Mother Nature?  Petrol is meant to be buried deep inside earth. Since the very first day we started to dig petrol out from earth, we generated a vast amount of excess energy in heat form and also Trillions tons of CO2 to our atmosphere. In the end, global warming becomes more severe than ever. Earth temperature increases, Ozone layer becomes thinner, less ice in North Pole and South Pole…..

We GOT to do something!

Have you ever thought what kinds of things that can possibly replace petrol? My friend YeeChong once told me something that actually struck me when the other friend asked YeeChong to fetch him somewhere else. YeeChong rejected the request harshly by saying this……………..

Friend: YeeChong can you please fetch me to see my girlfriend at KTC College?

YeeChong: YOU SIAO AH!! NO WAY

Friend: Why?

YeeChong: You think Petrol is cheap?!?! You think I can just PEE into my car? And my car will move by feeding it with my URINE?

This is like Jim Carrey pee into a car in Me, Myself & Irene

That conversation struck me that day. It had an impact to me. As a baby engineer back then, I was so ambitious. I would like to participate in such breakthrough creations. I wish I can create an engine that is eligible to be powered by abundant resources like PEE PEE! When I hit my last year of my University, writing a thesis about the URINAL engine and do research about it was some of the proposals I wished to propose to my lecturer. Well, It didn’t happen..  But the idea was crystallized in me.

I’m proud to say that I’m a Renewable Project Engineer now.  My responsibility is to research additional green energy to save mama Earth. Me, Lowkei and Alex Kuek used to have the opportunity to execute research on a type of crop called Jatropha.

Jatropha curcus is a poisonous plant belonging to the spurge family. It is not eatable due to its high toxicity. But the good thing about Jatropha Curcus is that we can actually purge the seeds and get biodiesels. Amazing? Well, if you want to know more about Jatropha please ask Alex Kuek.

Alex Kuek was on the news the other day promoting Jatropha crop. It was published in The Star newspaper. He was explaining Jatropha crops to Prime Minister of Malaysia Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Who made the above comic?

 

The comic was made 5 years ago to promote a gathering for a group of Music people. I still find this extremely interesting. The characters in the comic are all my friends. MC’s name is Pei Liang (he plays double base). God of Cook is Zhi Liang (he plays ). The idea of this comic was depicted from stephen chow’s movie which is The Good of Cookery 食神.

 

a little bit of detective work here…..  

 

Well, The most important person behind all these is a very special creature named Mun Ping. He directed the entire comic flow and drew all the comic details. I must say he is a hell of EVERYTHING!  During secondary school days, he involved himself in Chinese Martial arts. You know the Chinese kung fu praying mantis???? Yup! Yup! he is pretty dangerous in that!  On top of that! He played Chinese flutes and wood winds in Oriental Music Orchestra. He participated in numerous music concertos and music competitions. Later he studied in UTM as a Mechanical engineer. He developed drawings as his part-time hobby. He won national comic drawing competition few yerars ago.  Now ,he is a freelance illustrator/graphic designer. He is Such a talented guy and ambitious! But how come we know each other? Because deep inside him, he is as retarted as me!

 

 

 

 

 

For those who want to visit Mun Ping art works, please go to PING

WHAT GENDER IS A COMPUTER ?

October 15, 2008 2 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I got a mail from my ex-university mates. The name of the email is called “WHAT GENDER IS A COMPUTER?”. This trigger all the people invovled to debate among each other. Now these people are not normal people, they are all baby engineers with crazy engineer imagination.

The debate was split into 2 groups, male and female, and asked among themselves to determine whether the computer should be ‘Masculine‘ of ‘Feminine‘.

The men’s group decided that computer should definitely be of the feminine gender, because:

 

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic


2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else; 


3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and 


4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay check on accessories for it.

 

5. Need external accessory to make it more variable. (Branded graphic card, branded CPU processor, good quality monitor, wireless keyboard/mouse)

 

The women’s group however concluded that computer should be Masculine , because:

 

 

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on


2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves;


3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and


4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

 

5. When gal is free, she will come over to her “computer” and chatting… when she is busy, she will switch off her computer and go to somewhere else

p/s: And “computer” is not allowed to serve for anyone except to it’s owner

 

6. Computer think straight… will easily get hang when processing curve and indirect data (which its owner like to…)

 

7. When hang, its owner will knock the monitor. (Computer must robust enough and keep on functioning when its owner knocked its monitor…)

 

8. Still hang…and owner keep on knocking the monitor. (owner don’t know that the processor is not located in monitor…. :p )

 

 

I found myself speechless….. when I finished reading it. I’ve no idea to give any suggestion. So I decided to put pictures.

 

 

Why computer is Masculine?

Because Men’s processor is duo core        +

 

Why computer is feminine?

Because lady’s processor is

 

Well guys, Do you think computer is a He or She ? leave your comment please…..

Hello World!!!

Howdy Guys! I’m glad that you are actually here looking at my crap.. wooHoo!  

Many thanks to friend Lowkei for advising me to come out with my own blog. Previously the idea of creating blog has never occurred in my mind before. I wanted to know more about the Gigantic Internet but I don’t know where to start. Lowkei suggested me to write blog as my 1st step to enter internet know-how. After a few tryings, I think I’m really an internet rookie.

So welcome friends! I will start writing all the issues under the sun and all the dirty things in your closets. I want to make this site become your favourite portal. Feel free to stop by to read and drop some quotes:)
