Judgement Day: The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

Image
Finally.. The last of the trilogy and this third installment of The Hobbit which continued from The Desolation of Smaug. It also somehow sets the start to The Fellowship of the Ring. (Yes this is already a spoiler and where the movies is different from the books). Thanks to TGV, I watched the trilogy marathon of The Hobbit on the evening 17th December till after midnight in IMAX 3D. If only they could do all 6 movies at one go on a weekend, it would be marvelous.



Would I suggest this movie to my readers? Definitely a yes even for non JRR Tolkien fans. Hint: bring tissue if you are on the emotional side. Also since this movie is in IMAX, I would highly recommend the IMAX experience.. Why? Let me show you why..


This is roughly what you will see on a normal cinema without the IMAX experience.. Trimmed and projected on the curtains.


This would be the full widescreen experience. See what you would be missing? (Yes I watched this on a normal screen on my second round and it's disappoi…

Chinese Lunar 9th Month 9 Emperor Gods/九皇爺 Festival in Penang

Image
Heard of the legend that says it would rain for the first 9 days of the Chinese Lunar 9th Month?
Yup. It's because legend has it that it's during this period that the 9 Emperor Gods would come and together with it brings rain.

The 9 Emperor Gods temple in Burma road directly facing Madras Lane in Penang.

It is said one has to be a pure vegetarian for the 9 days to cleanse oneself enough to send off the gods at the end of the 9 days. During this period, no animal products(milk, meat, eggs), garlic or onion. Even the plates, pots and utensils have to be new or untouched(clean from cooking any meat)

Took this with my phone. Yes. It's nice with all the lighting during the night.

The best part? The food of course

The mixed rice dishes. I was eating there for the past 5 days because they have different dishes everyda…

Xiaomi Mi3 3 months down the road. Still the killer?

Image
So it has been a 3 months journey now after getting my Mi3 from the first batch flash sale in Malaysia. How did the phone flare in comparison to my old HTC Sensation XE, Ninetology Z1 and other phones? Did it give me much headaches? Note that this is not a boring specs post but more of a user experience post. If you want specs, go find uncle Google =)


Simplified minimalist packaging. Phone in box, Manuals and the Sim tray pin right under the phone(see the flap just below the phone), cable hidden in the side of the box. If till now you still fail to find it, go do a lion king shaking the box till kingdom come and follow the source or the noise. First batch comes with extra sim trays to cater for different sizes and also the charger. I ordered mine with casing and screen protector.


Fits perfectly on one hand. Not too big, not too small. Just nice. How did I end up with this phone? My old Sensation XE is dying and is lagging despite the flashing and stuff. I am tight on budget and Mi3 ju…
