View Rooftop Bar @ GTower (Cocktail Review)

I had been to View Rooftop Bar couple of times for events such as the Unveiling of ABSOLUT ELYX. The bar which is located at Level 29 of GTower has the breathtaking panoramic night view of KL city. I am sure most of you who's working in KL especially those who's driving might want to find a place to chill especially on a Friday evening where the traffic jam is bad, so this is one of the place that I would recommend for you to chill at.

Guest can enjoy their drinks and the KL night view at the same time.
On my recent visit, we were given four choices of drinks after our satisfying buffet dinner before that at Rajang Hall. You can read about my review at the link here. The four choices of drinks were the Carlsberg Extra Cold, Kronenberry, Watermelon Dream and Passion-Tini.

Man of Steel (2013) Movie Review

Have you guys watch the latest Superman movie 'Man of Steel'? I've watched it last week and once more again yesterday in conjunction of Plus Size Kitten's blog anniversary. I've actually struggled not to fall asleep during the movie since it was shown in Beanie Plex @ TGV 1Utama. It's actually quite comfortable although it would be better if they removed middle partition making the two beanie bags joining together become one. I have not tried their LUXE hall yet but I am told there's a nice little table on the side of every seats. Anyway, do read until the end of this blog post to find out my opinion on this movie.

World's first 35mm SLR DIY Camera - The Konstruktor‏

Previously I've reviewed the La Sardina 35mm Camera (link here) and it was a joy to be relive the moment of shooting with film. I've also mentioned about the DIY 35mm Film Recesky Twin lens reflex LOMO camera which we can get in a very low price that comes with a below average image quality on my Facebook page and Twitter. Now, let me present to you the Lomography Konstruktor, the plastic camera kit you make yourself just like the DIY 35mm Film Recesky as mentioned above.

Even though it’s a do-­it-­yourself (DIY) SLR camera, there’s no need to get your hands dirty while building the Konstruktor. Just click and screw it together in a few easy steps; you’ll soon have an exquisite, fully-­working 35mm camera and be ready to shoot knock-­out analogue photos! Of course, the Konstruktor camera is packed with a host of ingenious analogue features such as a top-­down viewfinder to see what you shoot and to focus, an easy multiple exposure function, a ‘Bulb’ setting for long exposures and a detachable 50mm f/10 Lens! Can you build it? Yes you can!

Epic (Movie Review)

I am sure most of you knew that this movie (Epic) has already been released on the 23rd May and initially I wanted to watch this on 3D but somehow Cathay Cineplex doesn't have 3D shows for this. Anyway, Epic is a 2013 American 3D computer animated fantasy-adventure comedy-drama film loosely based on William Joyce's children's book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs.

Young Mary Katherine (M.K.) returns to her eccentric scientist father's home, but his all-consuming quest to discover a tiny civilization in the neighboring forest drives them apart. However, M.K. soon finds herself shrunken down by Queen Tara of that forest, mortally wounded by the putrefying Boggans, and charged to deliver a pod bearing the new Queen to safety. Together with a veteran Leafman warrior, two goofy mollusks and a young maverick, M.K. agrees to help. As the villainous Boggan leader, Mandrake closes in, M.K. and her new friends must draw on the best of themselves together and discover what they have to save their world.
