House, a short film released on 24th August which shows a typical incident that happens to many Malaysians who are poor living in illegal built house. There is one Indian student who was asked by teacher to built a dream house model but he built a model of his own house instead which is just a small house. He was humiliated by the teacher and fellow students because of that. This film shows a typical social economic problem facing by most Malaysians.
Halal, another short film released today. This is a comedy film shows the proper Islamic methods of slaughtering chicken in a Halal way. It is very hilarious and you will have a good laugh out of it.
The Tree, another short film by 15Malaysia. For me, this is a very interesting short film with political leader Nik Aziz acting inside. This film talks about merits. I infact agree to what he said in the film. We need “merits” currency in the afterlife. When human pass away, human cannot bring all the money, gold, coins, jade or any valuable to the graveyard and afterlife. I myself is a buddhist. In buddhism we also have the same saying, in afterlife we need “merits” as currency.
We must not take money too seriously and greedy over it. As long as we have enough to use and support our life is good enough. We instead need to do more charity to gain more merits. If we greedy over money, we tends to forget about what is the meaning of life. Well.. have you all think about what is the meaning of your life? For me, I think life will be meaningful if we do charity and good thing to help out others to have a better life. In return, we also happy that we can help others.
Now here is the video: try to get meaning of what Nik Aziz said in the film.

Freaking Scary… Freaking Thrilling… and… with cold air-con, it freak me out during the whole movie. It is not a ghost story.. I say it again it is not a ghost story. It is about a “9 years old orphan” called Esther who been adopted by a family and she do all sort thing to love the father in the family. There is something really wrong with her. She do all the freaking scary things to people who will spoil her freaky plan. She push people off from a high place, kill a bird and even kill a human. You noticed that I use quote when I write “9 years old orphan”. It is because she is not an ordinary orphan. She is not what I expected to be…. you want to know who she really is.. go see it yourself. I don’t want to spoil the thrill and the horror feeling in the movie by telling the whole story here.
All I can say is… it is a nice horror movie with a very original story. I really don’t expect it to turn out like this. From the beginning of the movie until the end, I was 200% awake because got stunned, horrified, thrilled by it. So go catch it if you are horror movie fan. Thanks to Nuffnang for the free Premiere Screening of The Orphan tickets. Here is trailer of the movie:

Last week I went to Floria 2009 or Putrajaya Flower & Garden Festival 2009 which held from 1st August to 9th August 2009 in Precinct 2 in Putrajaya. All lot of flowers were on display during the event which some of it I don’t even know the name (haha I’m into flower). All the flowers were decorated nicely like a small garden. They even decorate the flowers look like an animal. This event attracted a lot of people especially photographer to take this chance to take Macro photograph of the flowers. Due to the amount of photos that I took was too many, I separate the photos into 2 parts which will be posted in 2 different post on Floria 2009. Here is the first part of the photos.

G.I. Joe is a must see movie for G.I. Joe fan out there. It is about the origin of Cobra which is bad guy in the G.I. Joe series. Cobra is actually a scientist who perfected a weaponry technology which is far more deadly than nuclear and bio weapon for MARS industry (a weapon manufacturer) using NATO funding. Mr McCullen (boss for MARS industry) want to use this deadly weapon to give fear to all the people. G.I. Joe a special force team needs to stop this weapon by all means using advanced weapons, suits and vehicles.
The story of the movie is good. The action is non-stop right from the beginning and the final battle is nicely done with tons of destruction. One bad part of this movie is the CG scene. Some CG scene is too fake which even a children can identify it. The CG is not as good as Transformers but it still worth watching this movie for the action and good story. The character that I like most in this movie is Snake Eye (some sort like a Ninja). He stand out a lot in this movie and he looks cool as he doesn’t talk at all. I give 8/10 score for this movie. I deduct 2 points due to the poor CG scene. For action movie lover, go watch this movie. Here is the trailer for this movie.

KLCC or the Petronas Twin Tower is beautiful at night with a lot of lights on. Its become a very popular place for photographer to come to KLCC and take picture of it. I also went to try to take few picture of it. That night I was using my Sony A200 DSLR with 18-70mm kit lens with tripod. Tripod is a must as long exposure will be used to capture the stunning lighting of KLCC. That night I used 5 – 8 seconds exposure with aperture f14 to take picture of KLCC. I highly recommend photographer to use wide angle lens like 12-24mm lens as my kit lens 18mm not wide enough for some shot unless you have a Full Frame DSLR. Now here is some of the picture I took.
