Review: Buried (2010)

Hi again,

today managed to go to e@Curve with missus to hangout, chill, & watch a movie. We reached there at about 3.30pm.
During queue, nature called, so i asked her to buy tickets for us, it's either "Buried" at 3.40pm or "The Other Guys" at 3.30pm, so she guessed it.. :(


In a nutshell, basically it's about a guy working it Iraq, caught by the insurgence, & trapped in a coffin in order for the insurgence to get ransom from his employers.
But typical big companies, they "fired" him in order not to be liable for his misfortune.
While at the same time, apparently the US of A army has formed a group specifically to handle people in his situation. The group tries to rescue him..

p/s: The "bad guys" even gave him a phone, pencil, zippo @ lighter, & a pencil.. hence how he communicated with the outside world.


Well don't be, the storyline is straightforward, but not the typical Hollywood type of movie because you're "trapped" with Ryan throughout the movie :)

Keep an open mind, & you'll see it's refreshing..

But i don't think it's worth the price to pay to watch in the cinemas when you can just download it ( please buy originals, LOL )

Plus, i wanted to watch The Other Guys instead..

All in all, i'd give it ★★★☆☆ (3/5)
Just simply because i was not really in the mood to be in an "open minded" state when watching, i want ACTIONS, BLOOD, GUNS!!!


Custom Favicon for Blogger

Well, it's kind of interesting because i was searching what more to do to customize my website, & found this topic.
It's really easy & not as hard as people (including me) had thought. Just that maybe to host a file takes a little bit of effort & googling =)

BTW, just in case some of you who didn't know, favicon is the little picture that you can see usually on the LEFT the URL on the address for blogspot, it's the orange-colored "B".

 The steps:

1. Upload any pictures to any favicon generator websites (the less complex the picture is, the better because it's only 16 x 16 pixels :p).

I used this website: Favicon Generator since it has a nice little trick of animating the favicon!~

2. Upload the custom favicon that you created in a website, i found that there's only a few that supported .ico files. I used this .. well, there are others, but i'm too lazy to try others :p (don't forget to copy the direct link or URL of the file)

3. Use this general code:
<link href='{image url}' rel='shortcut icon'/>
<link href='{image url}' rel='shortcut icon' type='image/'/>
<link href='{image url}' rel='icon'/>
<link href='{image url}' rel='icon' type='image/'/>

 Replace the "image url" above with the url obtained from Step (2)..

4. I'm assuming you already know where to go to edit the HTML of your Blogger (if not, it's under Design Tab *hint*)

Hit "Ctrl + F" and search for </body>

Then just copy & paste the "editted" code in step 3 to a line ABOVE the </body>

Finally, save & see your blog...

Depending on your browser, it may take a while to see, but mine works instantaneously :)

Supernatural Season 6

Thanks to Korie for downloading 3 episodes, THREE episodes of the newly released Supernaturals Season 6, in FULL HD!!!!


Well, i'm no professional movie producer,etc etc, but i'd review it as i like it :)
Honestly, as cliche as it might be with Sam & Dean finally together though one of them was literally in Hell , i just love them.

Especially when Sam is driving a Dodge! woohoo!~

Yes, the storyline is getting a bit weird & Dean's a bit "slow", but i'm not really complaining since Smallville is reaching season 10 btw *wink*

I'd give it  ★★★★ ☆(4/5)
just simply because it's quite fun to watch.

Photo shoot for MIFA

Apparently, my sister will be joining the Malaysian International Fashion Week 2010, & she asked me to be her dress lineup's photographer..


Baby steps before accomplishing my dream to be a pro photographer, a unique one like Saiful Nang & Khairul Hazwan (in case you're wondering, they're the official photographers for the Malysian Astronaut, Dato' Dr Syeikh Muszaphar's Wedding )

Already bought all the basics, hopefully all the models will be there on time =)

Taman Tasik Titiwangsa - Sunrise

Last sunday morning, i was determined to get to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa to get some morning shots.
Set the alarm at 5.30, managed to reach the place at about 6.30, but there was quite a lot of people there by that time. Unsurprisingly since the place was awesomely peaceful!~

Since it's mainly a photoblog, enjoy the collections below














Basically that's the gist of the photos.

None was photoshop'd, only minor touch ups with Camera Raw :)

I would like any comments & critics to improve my photography
