My brother invited us all for tea at his house in Putrajaya. Afterwards, Nina and I decided to pay a visit to the new shopping mall in Putrajaya, Alamanda. Man, there were so many people!! It's run by the same people who run Suria KLCC, I think, and the lay-out was similar. Not that many shops were open, but it's your standard shopping mall tenants: England Optical, Guardian, KFC, A&W, etc.

On the 2nd day, we took a boat cruise upriver to have a look at the mangrove swamp. An eagle feeding was also organised, there must have been about 20-30 eagles!!

Didn't do much in the afternoon, just relaxed by the beach and at the pool..

The dinner was a formal affair, I opted for black tie. We had pre-dinner drinks at the Reading Room, followed by a wonderful five-course meal. Main course was lobster!

After dinner, there was a small party and cigars at the Saffron lounge.

All in all I had a great time at Tanjung Rhu. Thanks, Najmin and Adlan for inviting me!!

We went to Tanjung Rhu in Pulau Langkawi for the weekend, for Adlan and Najmin's wedding banquet. VERY NICE PLACE!!

Spent the afternoon exploring the place. Dinner was at a BBQ by the beach.

Jamie Foxx does it the Malaysian way.. without a meter!!
Let the people inside get out first, asshole!
Where's the escalator?
Collateral is the new movie starring Tom Cruise as Vincent, a cold-blooded killer, and Jamie Foxx as Max, the cab driver he's hired to drive him round LA while he offs 5 people involved in a trial.

It's a simple story, but director Michael Mann (Heat, Last of the Mohicans) turns it into a suspenseful, thrilling and ultimately powerful movie. Tom Cruise is absolutely chilling as the ruthless killer, but it's Jamie Foxx who turns in an Oscar-worthy performance as the harrowed everyman cab-driver who's been thrust into this nightmare and must find a way out.

The story moves along at a steady pace, but you won't notice 'cause you'll be at the edge of your seat most of the time. There aren't too many action scenes, but I thought the disco scene and the finale were great!! On par with the bank robbing scene in Heat.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

P/s As with any movie, people were soon discussing it on the IMDB forums. But check out this thread, which discussed the ending (SPOILERS) in minute detail. One guy watched it 20 times (obviously pirated), and some of them seemed to know an awful lot about guns..

The Village

Joaquin proceeds to do a "Casa Impian" on the village...
Watched M. Night Shyamalan's latest movie, "The Village", last night with Nina.

It was shite.

Some people told me that it was really scary. P-lease. Just because there's heavily-breathing actress in a shadowy forest with ominous music playing in the background, doesn't mean I will be scared. And sudden appearances (Jeng!) are a cheap tactic, Mr. Night. And what's with the lame dialogue and mindless plot? Oh yeah, Mr. Shyamalan, I think you should stay behind the camera, your "trademark" cameos are beginning to wear thin, especially since you can't act!!

Granted, your "twist" at the end was clever, but what's wrong with having a movie without one? I'm getting tired of trying to block the sense of foreboding that I get, knowing that suddenly you'll drop a little "bombshell" at the end that totally screws up the movie.

Weak effort, totally appalling. Rating: 4 out of 10.
