Adidas Nitrocharge Unveiled @ aL-ikhsaN Sports Outlet, Festival City Mall

I went over to Festival City Mall earlier in the evening to witness the unveiling of adidas Nitrocharge. It is a brand new energy-retaining football boot designed for the next generation footballer called Nitrocharge, which is set to follow the legacy and successes of the existing iconic Predator, Adipure & F50 ranges.

The adidas Nitrocharge 1.0
I do watch football especially  the FIFA World Cup, EUFA Euro, important matches of the English leagues as well as our national team matches but my interest on football started during the World Cup '98 when adidas launched the adidas Predator Accelerator. It was released to coincide with the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France and guess who's the one had the honor to wear it? None other than the legendary French football player, Zinedine Zidane. The boot was really a hit back then and I was admiring it every single time I visited the sports outlet. After so many years, there has been a lot of other brand competitors which have also produced some really good football boots but today I was quite impressed of the new adidas Nitrocharge.

Jurassic Park 3D (Movie Review)

Hey guys, I just came back from Jurassic Park 3D movie screening thanks to Manoah, Samsung Malaysia and Total Film Magazine. The first time I watched Jurassic Park was during my primary school years. It was shown on TV2 and somehow I am still able to recall the cast and most parts of the story especially the part in the kitchen.


Anyway, this 3D re-release was already released in US on 5 April 2013, to commemorate the movie's 20th Anniversary (Malaysia releases on 30 May 2013). Jurassic Park 4 was originally scheduled to be released on 13 June 2014 but somehow it has re-entered development with no current release date. Hopefully it will be released in the soonest time.

World’s Thinnest 2.5-inch Solid State Hybrid Drives from WD & SanDisk

Hi guys, just to let you guys know WD and SanDisk had team up in creating an innovative Solid State Hybrid Drives which is the thinnest (only 2.5 inches) using SanDisk's Fast Flash Memory technology.

Image credit to www.anandtech.com
SanDisk as we all know is one of the top selling brand of flash memory cards for imaging, computing, mobile, and gaming devices and WD in the other hand is a long-time leader in hard drive technology designs and manufactures the #1 selling internal and external hard drives. So imagine two of the best Brands which is top in their own category come together to create a Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHD). I am thinking this as a game changer for all the internal and external hard drive in the current market. We will see more of this faster, smaller and compact sized hard drive in the future market.

That's some pretty fast delivery service.

My Experience at The ONE FC Asian MMA Summit Singapore

Earlier this month, I went down to Singapore for a 3 days 2 nights trip with some bloggers, journalist and fighters for the ONE FC Asia MMA Summit 2013. The summit was held from 2-4 May at Marina Bay Sands Expo.

Day 1 - We departed from KL Sentral to Singapore via shuttle bus at noon. The journey down to Singapore via Malaysia–Singapore Second Link (Tuas) didn't take too long as we managed to arrive at Grand City Park Hotel around 6.30pm despite the peak hours upon passing through the checkpoint.


After checking into our respective hotel rooms, some of us washed up and prepared for the 8pm Cocktail Reception at FUSE, Hotel Lobby Tower 2 in MBS. Choulyin and I didn't make it for the cocktail reception as she needed to do her work in the hotel and I had more time to rest after the long journey.

Fast & Furious 6 (Movie Review)

Hi! Just came back from watching Fast & Furious 6 at the cinema courtesy of Nuffnang & United International Picture (UIP). It's somehow unbelievable how a movie related to cars and crimes can have sequel extension until the sixth movie. Not that it's bad but somehow I think if it's a movie made for car lovers then it would be great in a good way but it didn't last long after the third movie (Tokyo Drift). It's no longer about the cars but it certainly has diverted to somewhat big muscular guys trying to fight crimes by becoming the good guys.


Summary:
Since Dom and Brian’s Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty. The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

Top-Shelf Guacamole
I normally don't eat the guacamole, not a fan, but just loved this one. This Top-Shelf Guacamole is served with tortilla sombrero chips. The guacamole is an avocado based sauce filled with diced tomatoes and onions.

Find All Unique Pieces from Kwerkee.com

I am sure many of you might have already know what online shopping is about but I’ll briefly explain a little bit for those who still have no clue. Online shopping or online retailing is a form of electronic commerce that has been a trend since the 90’s. It allows consumers to directly buy goods or services from a seller over the Internet using a web browser and make payment online. One of the online shopping sites that I have found out recently is Kwerkee by Reebonz. It is a website where you will find all unique pieces from various stores on their website. Kwerkee presents interesting knick-knacks, hard-to-find design pieces and everything else arty farty. They pick out the queer, the peculiar & the bizzare for customer, and then feature them at up to 70% off retail. They are out to become the city's most imaginative design source, which I do agree after looking at the products that they are currently offering.

 

 There are more than 100+ products to shop daily from clothing, furniture, accessories, shoes, watches, toy cameras to phone covers, everything is uniquely designed and interesting for your friends or piers to take notice on them.

HTC One Launch in Malaysia

Late last month, HTC - a global leader in mobile innovation and design, launched its new flagship smartphone, the new HTC One. The launch event took place at Studio Lounge, Tropicana City Mall. HTC has a long track records of touch screen smartphones even when the very first generation Apple iPhone was launched back in the year 2007. From that time onward, HTC has been actively competing with other big brands and once again they are bringing new inovations in tech gadget with the new HTC One.



Crafted with a distinct zero-gap aluminium unibody, the new HTC One introduces HTC BlinkFeed™, HTC Zoe™ and HTC BoomSound™, key new HTC Sense® innovations that reinvent the mobile experience and set a new standard for smartphones. Upon hearing the launch of HTC One back in February this year in US, I was pretty excited just like when the time HTC launched the HTC Desire S in 2011.

Burgertory @ SS15, Subang Jaya [Non-Halal]

Hey guys, it's really been a while since I last blogged about food. I think the last one was back in early April which I wrote about Baker Dave. I had try to write about food once a week but seems like every single time when the food arrived on the table, it will be consumed speedily before I even get a chance to snap a picture of it. Anyway, last month I went over to Burgertory at SS15 for a food review thanks to Foodirector. It's actually not hard to find the place although it's on the first floor, it's located right above Guardian which one row before Maybank.


At the ground floor we saw its little sign board and also bunting at the column right infront of the staircase and their opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 6pm-11pm. So it's closed on Monday and if you can only visit them for dinner or supper. The Non-Halal sign was also shown, that's mean they are serving pork burgers, which happens to be one of my favorite pork dish after Bak Kut Teh and Pork Rice.

Legend Fighting Championship 11 Results

As some of you who have followed my blog for quite a long period of time, you might noticed that I am a big fan of combat sports. Not that I enjoy watching two person bashing one and another but if you come from a martial background like me (which is Shotokan Karate by the way), you will admire their great combat techniques and their discipline in preparing a good physic before the fight.

So back to the main topic here. I was invited to attend the Legend 11 last month where it's their first Malaysian debut held by Legend Fighting Championship, the Asia-Pacific championship of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) at Chin Woo Stadium, Kuala Lumpur.


Legend 10 was held at Hong Kong back in August last year where our only Malaysian fighter, Sam Chan has lost against Kai Kara-France from New Zealand with a submission. So this time round I was really hoping that our Malaysian fighter would win in Legend 11 since there will be two of our fighters competing which is Sam Chan and Muhammad Hanif.

Twitter Trend #ApaCinaMahu and Utusan Melayu

KUALA LUMPUR, May 7 – The police are investigating Utusan Melayu for sedition, hours after the Umno-owned daily sparked a nationwide uproar with its incendiary front page report seen to blame the Chinese for the Barisan Nasional’s (BN) weaker score in Election 2013.
