AwFulLy :: cHoCoLaTe

You know Souvenirs right, like the little lion keychains you get when relatives come back from a vacation you cashed your doe with. Then your friends come back from a trip and hands over the usual tax-free bag and whadya know, a koala keychain. It goes on 'n on 'n on 'n on and if you're lucky you might get a little magnet shaped like skyscrapers? It's boring but you have to pull a smile, you know?

Well I was in search for a cake a while back, in desperate need of something different. Something without "Local Bakery" written all over it. Not the fact that I was trying to show off or anything but when you usually give a cake to someone you'll have to help finish a portion of it and I was in no mood for anymore white cream and fruit thingy. Luckily, a heading for a magazine column was catchy enough to catch my eyes.

Awfully Chocolate

Would you look at that thing.
It's basically made with everything chocolate, head to toe, kinda like NBA. If the lucky person likes chocolate, trust me this is the one. If you're in one of those areas, give it a shot.

Impotent :: Yet Powerful

After a hard (yet sleepy) day I jumped into the showers to soften up a bit.

Grabbed it gently, turned on the flow, covering up various directions and everything was just soothing, relaxing, serene.

Until it just snapped right off.

Forcing directions to gush upwards to the roof and drip right back down, the whole place was a mess.

Left with no options I had to get everything done with a head-less tube and man was the force harsh! Opened up my eyes on how important the head is for maximum comfort.

Need to be gentle next time......

Recent Films :: Coraline

★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6/10)

This movie was good. Er~, The graphics~, creativity~, characters~…mood~…...stop-motion~...


To be honest I kinda slept through 1/3 of the movie coz I was too tired. The dark mood (with 3D sunglasses) just took me further away with the daze. So it would be a bit unfair for me to spill my thoughts on this one but “impression-wise”, it was pretty entertaining. Everything was just so creative. There were some parts that may be too harsh on little kids (I heard there were kids crying) but the detail and effort that went into this stop-motion film is incredible.

Props to that alone.

But comparing to Wolverine (See post below), the "when's this gonna end" meter was a bit higher so I'm just going to place this film a notch below.

The 2008-2009 Season is rounding off and things are heating up in the Playoffs (Rockets 100 - 92 Lakers). As the Lakers climb the Great Wall of China falling hard on their asses LeBron James, 24, was crowned MVP of the year, becoming the youngest player to win the award since Moses Malone in 1978-79. I'm not posting this to try to tell everyone what's happening (it's global news), but to rather share what I think this symbolizes in the coming years.

Kobe Bryant has been praised the best player on the planet with his dominations on court and don't get me wrong, I don't disagree. Aside from being a ball hog he's a very balanced player, a very high end balanced player. Which means he's quite unstoppable. But as he enters his 13th season this year the slope is starting to turn. Not saying he's wearing out physically but the time IS coming. Something from down under is pulling the curve down. LeBrons MVP award is just a symbol of the beginning.

Only 24, LeBron is already on top of the charts in everything, averaging almost a triple-double in stats. He's unstoppable when he drives. His defense is improving by the year and is 2nd place this season just behind Dwight Howard for Defensive Player of the Year. Scoring 50 along with 10 assists is not what an average player can do, not to mention Mo Williams and Delonte West is already a good guard. He's the pivot of the Cavs system. The only flaw left in LeBron is his mid-range shots, which is improving by the day and he's got plenty of time to improve. Once he gets the hang of it, everyone might as well just pack up and leave. And again, he's 24. This kid's got 10 more years up ahead of him to break records at his peak and another 5 years to do it when he steps into Kobe's path of aging. Taking his average team to the playoffs with the best record in the league, LeBron won the MVP award by a mile, and well deserved.

When he gets his shots right, he will be unstoppable. For another 10 years.
Imagine a lion growing a pair of wings.

We're all dead.

Now what's left is Kobe vs LeBron in the finals. The one match everyone is desperate to watch before Kobe's time is over. Lakers is a much better team but LeBron might be able to do something about it, and when he does, it's the beginning of the next generation.

Recent Films :: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7/10)

Had a soft spot for Wolverine ever since witnessing the X-Men series so I had high hopes for this movie. Everything was pretty smooth except a few things that bugged the slight inner perfectionist in me (which I will go on about later). First off I am no fan of any X-Men comics and I only know what's going on in their world through a screen so everything is first impression since the first X-Men film. It was good to finally see the origin of Wolverine and how he came to be (the man). I had no intentions to read the comics coz the original Wolverine is so different in yellow tights. That is the original in any X-Men fan but I only know the Wolverine from the film and that will be the only Wolverine I'll know, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. In this film Hugh Jackman's got this serious Man thing going on that'll turn any bloke gay if he's got a drop of homo in him. Hugh Jackman's Wolverine is probably the reason why most of the people watched this film.

The plot was a bit predictable, the traditional hero type flick and the CG was actually a bit off this time. The CG environment and effects were all good. Modern, today type stuff. There's just something wrong with Wolverines claw that doesn't make sense in many ways. The before and after (for those who knows) and how it's really suppose to look like if those claws busted out from between your knuckles etc etc. Maybe that's what made it look fake but it's still cool though.

In X-Men, all their abilities had a meaning, or a specific role. Like...Storm can control weather, Cyclops can cremate you with a glare, you've got Iceman, a dude that plays with fire, etc etc. They're all backed up as being a 'mutant' and have a specific role but in Wolverine there were some characters that weren't quite clear in this area. They did show off what they can do but it's nothing near a specific type of power. Agent Zero, for example, can put a bullet between your eyes from a mile away and shoot against a 100 soldiers. So what's his power? Samurai boy can reject a hundred bullets with his sword. So what's his power? There's a few more left for you to find out but it was just weird.

Overall it was entertaining and some scenes were really good. Wolverine (Logan) is obviously the main attraction but the plot is not boring at all. There's a few messy parts but that's just me. All in all it's a pretty good flick to watch with your friends and talk about.
