Bohemian Rhapsody review

Image result for bohemian rhapsody
Watch this movie the other day.
Totally enjoyed it , the music and the story was good paced.
It was the tragic story of Freddie Mercury, perhaps the best rock performer ever seen.
I never knew he was not caucasian nor did i had the interest to look up his biography before. Perhaps his strong association with LGBT and knowing by reputation his galant lifestyle.
The music in this movie was good because it was all Queen. I must say the band is really talented with 3/4 of them can actually sing.
It was an interesting journey of his life and his passion. Though from my reading , a lot of his "other life" is not highlighted in this movie. Brian May and Roger Taylor emphasized in their interviews they only want to highlight his amazing talent.
And indeed he is, as i am stuck to youtube watching all his past live performances.

Siguniang, China Dafeng Summit 19-28 October 2018

It was a wonderful trip. Almost a reunion of Stok Kangri in 2016. 10 of us, new to me was Hani, Abang Rahim and Mat Dinz from Labuan. Usual suspects: Pak Am, Deeno, Abang Ayob, Mang, (Ustaz Wong aka Great Leader), and Loe. 
This trip to China was my first, and my first impression of China will be WOW. They are a great country and somehow we have to be at par with them. How could you not as their civilization spanned more than 1000 years BC?

It was a sad week. Initially the devastating quake in Sulawesi, and we then lost 6 brave fire & rescue personnels in Puchong.
It was sad to loose these heroes.
I will not go into the controversies around the tragedy for now but it was the reality of their job. They will put their life in the line of fire (literally) and this incident showed just that.

PASKAL - Sentiasa terbaik!! - movie review

Image result for paskal the movie

I was asked to do a review on this movie, "lama dah you tak review movie eh?". I watched this yesterday, at noon ( ponteng kerja kejap hahaha). My expectations before the show? Well, The trailer was good but how many times have we been fooled by awesome trailers especially malay movies. I was crossing my fingers hoping that PASKAL will not receive the same fate. I rate PASKAL highly because I have had the opportunity to be with them during TRYLA many years ago. Our own "Navy Seal" if one wants to compare. 

From Wikipedia : 
"The Pasukan KhaLaut (Naval Special Warfare Forces, Jawi: ڤاسوكن خاص لاوت), commonly abbreviated PASKAL, is the principal special operations force of the Royal Malaysian Navy.
PASKAL's task is to conduct small-unit maritime military operations that originate from, and return to a river, ocean, swamp, delta or coastline. PASKAL also perform unconventional warfareguerrilla warfarecounter-guerrilla warfarejungle warfarecounter-terrorismclose protection, hostage rescue and foreign internal defence."

I went in without reading the full review, saw the ratings and thought hmm should be good. and..

My verdict? 

WOOOWWW ! TEBABOOOO! Awesome yeah!! 10/10 from me :)

The plot:
The plot was how you expect it to be. Good vs evil and how evil stemmed from injustice of the system (lateral thinking) - Cite Batman & Black Panther pun same theme. Nobody is wrong and nobody is perfect. The 2 big incidents were based on 2 true ops and that gave the goosebumps while watching the events.
The characters were real and the dialogue were not pretentious. Seeing the flashbacks of their training an initiation was surely heartwarming. They are the best! I wished that we could have seen the test of throwing them in the middle of the sea with all limbs tied, and waiting them at shore. Imagine berenang macam tu!! 

The action sequence:
I must praise the  meticulous details being given attention to on the weapons and assets of TLDM that was shown. It was as real as one can get. Submarine tu cool habis :) I guess having the Navy and PASKAL themselves breathing down the producers neck, they have to produce this perfectly. It is our special forces dignity at stake! True enough, the director brought justice to this piece. 

Action sequence were hollywood standard. Check it out Tom Cruise!! I had the thought that we might go Hong Kong style where the action sequence maybe good but there will always be something missing unlike the Hollywood action flicks. But PASKAL wasn't Hong Kong! Betul cam hollywood siot.. Hahaha Okay, they maybe some logic stuff you would want to consider but hey, tengok Rambo lagi mengarut oii.. Give credit to our own local production! Thumbs up! 

Overall it was an enjoyable movie. I maybe biased because I love Malaysia but seeing our special forces being given the honour to be potrayed as such in this movie, memang tersentuh :) 

Well done!

Malaysia Baru

WOW! My last post was almost a year ago! What happened yeah? What happened? Allahu akbar! Ive left my blog for a year and honestly, today it suddenly triggered me whatever happened to my blog. Good that it is still around but obviously I've been blog dormant for almost a year.

A lot has happened and changed. I guess the catalyst for my absence was the event that took place in OT almost the same time. It was something that shook me and I guess I tried to stay away from writing my feelings due to the possible medico-legal implications later. Well, it is still not sorted yet but we'll see what happened.

I am still in Gleneagles Medini. It will be 2 years by November again. I am still at times running up and down to KL as my family has yet to move here. They might in the future but i really don't know when. Let time tell. Qayyum has settled his UPSR and now in a KPM tahfiz school alhamdulillah. Who would have thought he would be interested ( till date) to be a tahfiz and I pray for his perseverance.

Malaysia? Haha ni lagi best. Who would have thought the possibility of Mahathir-Anwar combo to lead the country again. Who would have thought that Mahathir, the 93 year old gaffer rose to lead the country again? In politics nothing is impossible. Today is the nomination day for Anwar to rejoin the parliament in Port Dickson. It is an interesting plot happening at the moment. Whatever it is we hope the best for Malaysia.

The people in Malaysia voted for change. Whether the whole Malaysia is ready for this change, we will see. It is rethoric but it was something that Malaysia needed. To define the baru is interesting as it has only been 61 years since independence. It was in 1970 that we first started to restructure the society. Changing mindset is not overnight and take generations to achieve. We pray the best for Malaysia.

As for me, i do hope to be consistent in blogging again. It is a good feeling to be able to write on the blogosphere - the popularity of blogs has come down with the presence of facebook, twitter and instagram. Hoever i do believe that blogs will be around for a long time. I am not looking for viewership, but it serves as some sort of personal journal of one's life.
