Attention Female Drivers!

This is copied from a Facebook friend's post...

Kisah benar yang betul

          Pada suatu hari, terdapat seorang wanita yang berhenti di stesen minyak untuk mengisi minyak. 

Setelah selesai memenuhkan tangki minyak selepas membayar menggunakan kad kredit di pam dan ingin meninggalkan stesen tersebut, atendan di dalam kedai lantas bercakap menerusi speaker dan memberitahu sesuatu yang berlaku dengan kad itu dan meminta wanita itu masuk ke dalam untuk membayar tunai. 

Wanita itu keliru kerana dia telah selesai mengisi minyak dan pembayaran menggunakan kad kredit telah diluluskan. 

Dia menunjukkan isyarat tangan kepada atendan tersebut dan bersiap sedia untuk meninggalkan tetapi atendan tersebut sekali lagi menggesa wanita tersebut masuk ke dalam kaunter kedai untuk membayar tunai. 

Dengan perasaan sedikit marah, wanita itu terus masuk ke dalam kedai dan mempertikaikan tindakan petugas tersebut dan menuduh dia menipu. 

Atendan tersebut memberitahu supaya wanita itu bertenang dan mendengar dengan teliti Atendan memberitahu ketika wanita tersebut sedang mengisi minyak, dia telah melihat seorang lelaki telah masuk ke dlm kereta dan bersembunyi dikerusi belakang . 

Dengan segera beliau telah menghubungi pihak polis. 

Wanita tersebut terus menjadi takut dan segera melihat pintu keretanya terbuka dan lelaki itu telah menyusup keluar dan meninggalkan kereta itu dengan tergesa-gesa. 

Kes baru-baru ini didapati mempunyai kaitan dengan ujian untuk permulaan geng jenayah terbaru dimana memerlukan seseorang untuk membawa balik bahagian badan seorang wanita .. 

Salah satu cara yang mereka lakukan adalah dengan merangkak perlahan-lahan dan menyusup masuk ke dalam kereta wanita manakala sasaran utamanya adalah stesen minyak atau di kedai runcit pada waktu malam. 

Kemudian, mereka akan potong kaki / buku lali mangsa menculik mereka dan kemudiannya membunuh dan mencerai-beraikan mereka. Kaedah lain adalah dengan memaksa wanita itu masuk ke dalam kereta kemudian menculik mereka, 

Sila sebarkan ini kepada wanita lain, orang muda dan tua. 

Pertama, wanita seharusnya lebih berhati-hati apabila ingin masuk ke dalam kereta pada waktu malam. 

Kedua, Jangan letakkan kereta di tempat sunyi atau terpencil semata-mata ingin mendapatkan tempat letak kereta percuma! 

Ketiga, Jika boleh, elakkan memandu seorang diri pada waktu malam! Ini adalah situasi sebenar! Penculikan! Pembunuhan! Putus dan anggota badan dicerai-ceraikan! Ini semua berlaku di Malaysia ! 

Jadikan amalan : 

1. Pastikan kereta berkunci setiap masa walaupun anda meninggalkan kereta sebentar. 

2. Periksa sekeliling kereta sebelum masuk ke dalam kereta. 

3. Sentiasa peka terhadap sebarang tanda-tanda pelik dari persekitaran anda dan individu lain di dalam sekitar umum, terutama pada waktu malam.






On a related note, 

last night, one of my Twitter friends almost got robbed (or worse)... She had just finished her shift and parked her car at a dark parking spot near KTM Mid Valley (I'm not sure where is that... Maybe u'll know if u're familiar with that area)... She bought sweet corn and ate it in the car... Suddenly, an Indian guy tried to open her door... Luckily, she had locked the car... Then, the guy took out a knife... She immediately started her engine and took off... She was traumatized the whole night...



Therefore, be careful ladies... Try not to go out alone but if u do, avoid dark and quiet places...

Fright Night (2011)

When I was a kid, one of my favourite TV show series was Angel (besides The X-Files and Roswell) and watching the series made me fell in love with the concept of vampires... I think it's really cool to have fangs and super strength... A night lurker, battling monsters and other creatures for centuries... An immortal life... I love vampires so much that I even thought of surrendering myself to one so that it would turn me... Well, that was until the Twilight series came out... 

Lets face it, after Twilight, if u admit that u wanna become a vamp, people would be calling u a fag... A glittering fag... Thanks to Edward Cullen... It kinda pissed me off... Vamps used to be so cool and frightening... 

Now, thanks to Fright Night, vampires are scary again... Scary in a very very charming way... 


THE STORY

Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) found himself having a vampire - Jerry (Colin Farrell) - as a neighbour and it's killing his other neighbours and friends... In order to protect his mother and girlfriend - Amy (Imogen Poots), Charlie who was a former geek had to battle Jerry and it was an exciting battle indeed... 



AWESOME STUFF


Colin Farrell

Colin Farrell is the most handsome vampire ever (that's until u see his real form)... If u wanna debate with me with an argument that Edward Cullen is a better vampire then it means u haven't watched this movie and u don't know the real depiction of vampires according to legends... Farrell has succeeded in restoring the reputation of vampires by bringing out their true nature - manipulative, charming and scary... My words won't do justice on how bad-ass he was as a vampire in this movie... U need to witness it yourself... 

Even though I'm a straight guy, after watching, I couldn't get his beautiful yet sinister smile out of my mind...






The Original Vampire Concept

This movie is a reminder for all of us on the true nature of vampires... True vamps do not glitter! They turn into ash under the sun... True vamps also don't have mirror images... True vamps cannot enter a house uninvited... True vamps are manipulative... True vamps are scary... True vamps rules!!!! 

As much as I love the modern depiction of vampires in the Underworld series, it felt great to see the original being revived... 





NOT SO AWESOME STUFF


It's not a Horror (for me)

Actually, I don't know how to describe it... Yes, I love Colin Farrell and he was indeed handsome and scary at the same time as a vampire, but I categorize this movie as horror... Maybe it's because I'm Asian... For most Asians, western ghosts and monsters are not as scary as the ones in Asia... I mean, if u compare the handsome vampires with Asia's wailing Pontianaks, I'll say Pontianaks are scarier... 

You want horror? Try watching Thai's Coming Soon...

Luckily there are many suspenseful scenes... For instance, the part when Charlie tried to save one of Jerry's snack - the part when they played hide and seek behind the stairs in Jerry's lair... Another awesome scene was after Jerry got ran over... Awesome...

Okey, in simpler words, the vampires are scary, but not the movie... The movie is not scary, it's suspenseful... Get it?





ALL IN ALL

I love this movie mainly because of the original depiction of vampires and Colin Farrell...

I'm Against Child Abuse

Last Sunday, at Tesco Cheng, I saw a woman slapped her baby... The baby was about 10 - 11 months old and he was crying while being held by the mother... The woman first shook the baby and yelled at him to stop crying... but the baby refused to stop and kept on wailing... Then, she slapped him on the cheeks... Multiple times... The baby gave out a fight by slapping back... It almost appeared as self defense... However, the baby's arms were small and weak... Instead of inflicting pain, his struggle only made the mother angrier... 

Before she tried hitting him again, I approached and told her to stop...

"Makcik, baby pun nak tampar ke? Kesian dia..."

She burst out on me in anger...

"Kau apa tahu?? Jangan campur tangan hal orang!"

It made me furious...

"Kalau makcik tampar dia hari - hari, besar nanti dia jadi bengap macam makcik jugak... Dia pulak akan tampar makcik...", I said while trying to keep my cool... 

Before she let out another rage attack, an old woman came to her and took the baby away... I assumed that she's the grandmother of the baby... She tried to calm the baby down and it worked... The cruel woman just watched the old woman and the baby with an angry expression on her face... I wondered what's her problem... 


Now, I'm not a baby expert as I'm not yet a father... but I raised my two younger brothers when they were babies... I put them to sleep (literally), changed their diapers, took them for a walk and entertained them... Mother was always busy doing chores, so I had to take care of them for her... Well, I didn't really mind because it gave me an excuse to skip Sekolah Agama... In fact, I enjoyed it... Therefore, I sort of know (or knew) a few ways to shut a baby up... and slapping is not one of them...

Seriously, if u don't want to take care of your babies, why bother making them in the first place... It's because these kind of makciks are stupid... They know shit about family planning... Tau main je... Dapat anak, taknak jaga...

Contagion (2011)

For the past few days, many people were eager to go and watch Contagion because of its star studded line of cast members and interesting tagline...



THE STORY

This movie followed the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that killed people in just within days... As medical teams all around the world strove to find out about the virus as it was alien to them and work on creating a vaccine, the virus kept on spreading and killing more people by the minute... Check out the trailer here...


AWESOME


Putting Together the Pieces

This movie was like a compilation of short video clips showing how different people were affected by the virus and how they coped with it... Shooting those clips was easy but putting them all together must be quite a task because the arrangement was not just chronological but also simultaneous between all characters...


The Cast Members

Each cast member had a limited time to shine because like I said before, this movie was a compilation of short clips... Nonetheless, despite the challenge, as renown actors and actresses, they delivered quite awesome performances... Gwyneth Paltrow as Beth Emhoff got the show started with a horrifying image an acute seizure attack...

I was amused by Jude Law's character - Alan Krumwiede, a controversial blogger, who was actively spreading rumors and conspiracy theories via the Net... Matt Damon also did great as Mitch Emhoff - a traumatized husband and father...



NOT AWESOME


Fear??

To me, this movie was educational... In other words, it was quite lame... The tagline "Nothing Spreads Like Fear" didn't depict the movie at all... It lacked suspense and thrill as the pace was quite slow and there were little raw emotions shown... Instead of focusing on drama, this movie was all about educating the audience on the effects of the spread of a deadly virus, how the virus was spread, who took action upon it and the counter procedures...

However, I'm not implying that this movie sucks big time... Personally, I think that it's just mediocre...



IN A NUTSHELL

If u are craving for action and suspenseful thrillers (like me), u gotta skip this movie... However, if u feel u have the need to feed yourself with information regarding a deadly airborne virus, go ahead and watch it... This movie could be the key to your survival in case a pandemic broke out in the future... 




2.5 out of 5 stars...

In movies...







The bad guys always talk so much, they got themselves killed by the weaken hero...


I don't like it because

most probably they would save the talk and 
just kill u without even saying a word...

I'm sure all of you have stumbled upon him riding on people's head, hanging on a person's body or being carried around... Don't know what Domo is? Click here...
