The Simpsons : Movie (2007)

Source: DVD (SS2)

Purchased this months ago, but only just watched it over the weekend. I should have watched it earlier, one of 2007's most brilliant films! "See our family. And feel better about yours" about says it all ... heh heh!

Just like on tele, the stars ....
Dan Castellaneta (Amongst others Homer / Itchy / Barney / Grandpa and dozens of other characters!)
Julie Kavner ... Marge Simpson / Selma / Patty
Nancy Cartwright ... Bart / Maggie / Ralph / Nelson etc
Yeardley Smith ... Lisa
Hank Azaria ... Professor Frink / Comic Book Guy / Moe / Chief Wiggum and more!
Harry Shearer ... Scratchy / Mr Burns / the brilliant Ned Flanders and many more!!

ps - One of the BEST SCENES from this movie ...
Marge: How did the pig tracks get on the ceiling?
[cuts to Homer holding a pig to the ceiling]
Homer: [singing Tune to Spider-Man Theme Song]
Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig. / Does whatever a Spider-Pig does. / Can he swing /
from a web? / No he *can't*, / He's a pig. / Look out! / He is the Spider-Pig!

pps - Incredible laughs a minute film, with more memorable quotes!

Mayor Quimby: I hereby declare a state of emergency: Code Black.
Lenny: Black? That's the worst color there is.
[Lenny turns to Carl, his black friend]
Lenny: No offense there, Carl.
Carl: I get it all the time.

Colin: I'm Colin.
Lisa Simpson: I haven't seen you at school
Colin: Just moved from Ireland. My dad's a musician.
Lisa Simpson: Is he...?
Colin: He's not Bono.
Lisa Simpson: I just thought because you're Irish and you care about...
Colin: He's NOT Bono.

Porridge, 1toEat Kopitiam - Bukit Tinggi @ Klang

Add: Jalan Batu Nilam 3, Bukit Tinggi, Klang

Hmm, I am starting to visit this particular kopitiam in Bukit Tinggi a couple of times a week!

Highly ordinary ... but it was only RM$3.50. Kon loh noodles (meehoon + mee) with minced pork and mushrooms, with a bowl of fishball soup.

My chap-fan, oops porridge meal below ... came up to RM$8.40. Not cheap, but I did have 3 cocktail sausages in tomato ketchup, minced pork with stewed potatoes, French beans (the only eeeky item! the rest were OK), and Tofu with mushrooms, as well as Paper wrapped chicken. All this with a large bowl of white porridge.

BMW E60 ACS5 - AC Schnitzer Kit in White

What's this approaching me ...?

Had to react fast to get a shot of the side ... this was taken near Port Klang. Nice AC Type IV rims, 18"s (or even 19"s?) perhaps.

Great AC Schnitzer ACS5 full bodykit conversion ... Original? Who knows!

ps - Not too shabby a plate too ... WLK1 !

You don't mess with The Zohan (2008)

Source: DVD (Chow Yang, SS2)

Written by ... and starring ... one of my fave actors ever, Adam Sandler!

Managing to keep up with the genius Adam Sandler (Only Jim Carrey comes remotely close to his comic genius!) is Rob Schneider as Salim.

And ... equally brilliant, is John Turturro as The Phantom!

"He's silky, smooth and harder than trigonometry!"
Described in as "This is the story about a Mossad agent Zohan Dvir, who fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist. He romances his clients by giving them "special services" in the back room. However, he is eventually recognized, and risks losing his newfound life and career"

All I can say is ... MAGNIFICENT!!
In the genre of Ben Stiller's Zoolander, this is potentially JUST AS GOOD! A laugh a minute, with fantastic one-liners and political insensitivities :-)

Proton Waja modified BMW tail lamp

Does the rear lamps on this modified Proton Waja look familiar!?

I thought it did ... Its a copy of the facelift E60 5-series Beemer's!

Presenting ... Yanna's sweet and sour fish. SLURP!

Steamed chicken ... mmmmh!

Some other simple but delicious dishes...

In yesteryears, I used to like this combo of 'raw' oyster sauce on my rice too ... not for me anymore!

Oren jus kosong aka Fresh orange juice with NO SUGAR , and NO ICE ... fabulous.

To finish off the meal ... Pak Kor Yee Mai (Gingko nut and Barley with Beancurd skin). So good!
