The Show Must Go On

Clash of the Titans 3d

Pernah tak rasa ANNOY GILE time tengok movie
bila ibubapa yang tak berakal panjang ni
bawak anak kecik-kecik lagi ...
kadang2 yang masih baby pon dowang bleh bawak

aku memang pantang tol ngan parent2 camni
sebab aku dah kene masa tengok Clash of the titans - 3d
dekat pavillion
dahla show pagi pukul 11am

belakang ada perempuan melayu
bawak anak kembar umur 3-4 tahun
sebelah pulak cina bawak anak lelaki
2 orang age 10-11 tahun
sepanjang movie tu
yang kembar belakang duk berjalan ke kiri ke kanan
yang cina 2 orang sebelah ni pulak duk bercakap berborak

penat dok "syuhhh syuhhh"
tak paham paham bahasa nak gak berborak
dah cakap "please keep quite kid"
pon tak jalan jugak
yang mak bapak die pon buat tak tau je
muke toya macam takde apa2 berlaku
nak aku cakap ke
"can you shut the fuck up or i'll shove the popcorn
up to ur motherfuckin ass, you dickshit!"

nak ke???

Sorry la i'm being harsh
tapi aku tak salahkan budak-budak yang tak berdosa tu
aku salahkan mak bapak dowang yang gatal
nak bawak anak-anak tengok wayang
walaupon dowang tau anak tak boleh behave

kalau dah tau anak kau tu jenis hyper...
bawak pegi zoo la wey
atau pegi funfair je
orang lain masuk wayang bayar sampai dekat RM20
nak tengok film 3D
bukan nak dengar anak ko memekak
lagipon filem ni bukan kartun ke
lainla citer toy story ke finding nemo ke...
aku masih boleh memahami lagi
ini clash of the titans....
ko takde otak ke?

aku tau bukan semua budak yang hyper
some of the kids mmg bagus dalam wayang
duduk diam diam makan popcorn

so makbapak tolongla evaluate dulu anak ko jenis camne
kalau tengok DVD pon dah bising
"mummy, mummy kenapa dia terbang mcm tu?
kenapa mata die besar..kenapa kaki dia patah?"
ko lupakan la hasrat murni nak bawak tengok wayang
tengok aje la dvd kat rumah
atau pegi buat aktiviti lain yang lebih mesra kanak-kanak

sebab 90% yang pergi tu takde anak
yang nak concentrate on the particular movie
and tak hingin nak hadap behaviour anak kau

I Melt With You

Yesterday, me and my surfacing
went food hunting at AU Jusco
Came across this ad at Wendy's
Decided to give it a try
I chose double mushroom melt
and My Surfacing went for triple
the moment we unwrapped the aluminum foil
I was like...nooo shittt

Well Wendy's, what can i say...
I am a fan now.

If you always go for medium at McDonald,
Choose small set because the medium is huge!

Single Burger - RM 11++
Double Burger - RM 15++

Film : Thirst (Bakjwi)
Year : 2009
Country: South Korean
Director:Chan-wook Park

(old boy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengenace)

About a priest whose free time is spent
volunteering at the local hospital
and providing ministry to the patients.
After turning into a vampire
through a failed medical experiment, he
he found himself hunger for blood...
and fondness towards his childhood friend's wife.

Rate :

Personal comment:
I watch this movie last week during daytime
I thought it's a scary vampire movie but i was wrong
It's very daring, sexual, funny, great storyline,
Great talents especially the actor
(he's from The Host, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance)
and the CGI is freaking good.
I wonder when Malaysia can produce good CGI movie...
at the end of the day,
it's about love, in a weird way
the unexpected happens and it can change your life...
or death forever.

I Met The Walrus

I came across this lovely piece while book hunting
It's about meeting the legendary John Lennon
In 1969, 14 years old Jerry Levitan, a big fan of The Beatles
snuck into John's hotel room
and had the most wonderful experience in a lifetime -
sit down for a 40 minutes of interview with John Lennon

The book is totally awesome
Brand new, hard cover
with really nice illustrations illustrated by James Braithwaite
Never before seen photograph of John and Yoko
Truly a gift for John Lennon fans

DVD also included -
the footage of the interview
the audio during the interview
and more photos

and the wonder of it all...
It's just RM19.90.

I should go book hunting more often.

My surfacing went to Lamb of God Wrath tour in Singapore
He had a great time, obviously
He bought the VIP ticket
Meet and Greet with them,
signed flag and poster
It's a freaking unforgettable concert, he said

Went to LCCT to fetch him
he told me the day before ...
he didn't buy the wrath tour t-shirt
my size was not available
I was completely upset

not until he took out this baby from his bag...
Lamb of God original T!

You got me, my dear...
You really did.

It's a big 'Lamb of God' day out
for us the next day :)

Simple Lie

Based on my recent experience
Buat aku terfikir tentang manipulation...
Actually it happens in everyday life
Cuma kita tak sedar je
Tapi pernah tak korang terfikir yang kadang-kadang
Cycle hidup kita ni sentiasa berdepan
dengan penipuan separa sedar
atau dengan bahasa lebih indah…
Tak kirala besar ke kecik ke
Tapi bila agaknya menda ni berlaku?
Sebagai contohla…

1. Bila kata free trial tapi sebenarnya ada cost lain
and paksa-paksa orang beli produk jugak

2. Bila pakai kereta Malaysia...
habis je warranty teros jahanam…
tak boleh nak tolak pulak tu…

3. Bila pegi salon konon-konon professional
tapi styling rambut macam setan.. pastu cakap belit-belit…
bila tengah cuci rambut baru nak kata promotion tu tak valid
and bagi pakej lain yang lagi mahal

4. Bila bank charge 50 sen setiap kali nak keluar duit
kat atm selepas 4 kali pengeluaran

5. Bila skin doctor tak bagi warning awal-awal pasal
kesan ubat pil yang buat tangan jadi hitam
and kulit jadi kering

6. Bila makan kat restoran yang dah bertahun-tahun operasi
rupanya baru dalam proses nak apply status Halal

7. Bila makan kat restoran yang pakai logo Halal tipu

8. Bila beli epal hijau yang kata crunchy
tapi rupanya epal gabus

9. Bila buat claim kat company
sampai 9 bulan tak dapat-dapat
(tapi arini dah dapat juga akhirnya..Alhamdulillah)

10. Bila naik teksi cekik darah tak pakai meter charge
dari ampang ke ukay perdana RM12 hari pertama
dan RM14 hari kedua

11. Bila pegi event konon-konon international dan largest
tapi hampehhh... bosan gilee

12. Bila makan pizza hut chunky loaded
rasa kecewa tengok pizza die serabai abes...
konon-konon 10 layers la ape la...
dominos pizza jugak the best

13. Bila keikhlasan disalahertikan,
pengorbanan disia-siakan
dan hanya perselisihan yang dibacakan

Kalau nak buat list memang banyak sangatlah
But this is life...
Apa yang penting ialah belajar dari kesilapan
Dan percaya pada takdir

Kita sebenarnya ada pilihan
Sentiasalah yakin pada diri sendiri
untuk buat pilihan yang tepat...

Beautiful Lie

Beauty is pain.
But what is more painful when people use beauty to lie.
to cheat and threaten potential customer
This is based on my experience today at
NY Skin Care,(NYSS).
I bet u've heard or read about their promotion thru newspaper,
tv programme and magazine.

I never fell for their promotion until last thursday
I came across their ad in the star newspaper
"Free 1st trial with free product kit"
So i said to myself ..what the hell
just give it a try la kan..

I called the number
and spoke with one of their consultant, Jay.
I told them my problem and asked
"is there any hidden charges? or it's merely free trial?
Do I have to buy your product after the free trial?"
and she responded
"There's no obligation, it's truly your choice..
just come here for a 3 hours session on Sunday and we can
customized a treatment package for you. but no worry,
there's no obligation"

so i agreed.
Today at 11.30am, I went to NYSS.
and i asked the consultant again about the 1st trial
is it really free, because i just want to try first
and see if it's suitable for my skin
and she said "yes, no obligation"
so she asked for my IC and registered my name
she also asked me to fill up form about my lifestyle habit
and previous dermatologist history and made me signed it...

then she scanned my skin to show my problem
and she said
"today's treatment actually cost rm350,
but for the 1st trial it's free...

but since you never been to any facial before,
i suggest you to do
exfoliating and this is separate package..
this is good to remove
dead cells...just add rm180"
So i said okaylah since the facial is free
so to add exfoliating stuff should be fine
I tried using the debit card machine at their counter
but the machine rejected both maybank & BSN card - 3 times
so I went to the ATM just across the outlet
The consultant accompanied me
Then I made the payment and went to the facial room

It's a 3 hours session of cleansing, masking, exfoliating,
she also did this painful process to remove blackheads
put vitamin E and lastly moisturizer...
The session ends around 2.00pm
and she asked me to go back to the scanning room
scanned my face again and showed the comparison-
the result
I must say it's kinda interesting under the scanning machine
Although red spots clearly visible due to the facial treatment
Then she started "customizing" my facial package
and the horror begins

by credit card - 20 session for 6months = RM7000
by cash - 20 sessions for 6 months =RM5950
signed up as a member today and
I'll get
the home product consist 7 items just for 700++

I was like...wow...
this is way beyond my budget
so i said to the consultant,
I need to do my financial calculation first
and let you know by next week
whether i want to continue and signed up as a member
This is when she started sketching more "affordable package"
where I can pay by installment
but at the end of the day it's still costly

I keep telling her that i need to re-calculate
and get back to her later
she became even more pushy and asked me to buy
just 4 items of the product at only RM320
I told her again
" i don't even have RM50 right now"
and i can't afford to pay since you said before it's a free trial
I even paid RM180, and that's it.
after 15minutes of saying no,
she said okay and went to get her business card

To my surprise after 10minutes,
she came back with her supervisor!
and her supervisor asked me questions like
"do you have any problem with our consultant?"
"why don't you signed up today because all the customer who
went to the trial will signed up immediately"
she even made a subtle threat to me by saying:
"This is a big company and we usually don't do it this way...
customer usually sign up after free trial"

I am seriously pissed off and feel cheated
so I told the supervisor
"To be honest, I came here to treat my skin,
not just simply want to main-main. That's why i asked first
is there any rules or must i signed up any package .
If i know this will happened, I will not go for this trial session"
The supervisor then asked me
to make a "signed up registration"where i can place RM50
as a deposit just to make sure i'll sign up later...
I mean how desperate was that?
truly, this persuasive manner turn me off.

After 15 minutes, she came with another form
and asked me to sign it
I said i won't sign anything ,
because i am not going to sign up as a member
Then she said
"it's just to acknowledge that you have done
the free
trial session, don't worry about it"
But if they come back to me saying that I already signed up
because i signed the fucking form,
I will make a police report because
i was told differently by the consultant.
mane la tau kan...

I told the consultant that i will get back to her
by tomorrow.
and yes after calculation,
the package is just too ridiculous
I will call her tomorrow
and tell her that i can't afford to sign up.

The 1st reason :
It is too pricey and the package is ridiculous.

The 2nd reason:
The facial treatment is not suitable for my sensitive skin.
Now i have a few red spot around my neck.
(This usually occur when I'm allergic to the product)

The 3rd reason:
NYSS is too pushy and it shows that they just want
my money, not to make my skin better

The 4th reason:
The supervisor is threatening me with
"the big company statement". Their approach is scary.
Too persuasive, too pushy and clearly
the advertisement is very manipulative.
1st free trial means = sign up immediately
even though at first they keep saying "no obligation"

my point is...
I am not suggesting that the product is not good
Because obviously they have numerous testimonial
and a freaking TV Programme
The product must be really good
and probably works out for other customer
But unfortunately, it is not suitable for my skin
and I don't like their aggressive approach
keep persuading and threaten me even i said "No"
and the product is not suitable for my budget
untuk orang kaya-kaya atau bila aku kaya,
yes, maybe aku selamba je sign up kan...
but i don't have that much money
even i have money,
I won't spend that huge amount for a face treatment
I rather seek professional dermatologist advice
which is cheaper and safe

I browsed the internet and found this website
and some suggested it's actually a scam!
read this blog
They had experience just like mine
and I'm glad i am not the only one
I wish they stop publishing
manipulative promotional advertisement.
I believe more people is complaining at the consumer tribunal
about their scary manner and approach
I hope they will not make another threat
when i call them tomorrow.

This experience definitely scares me
It makes me lose faith to try any beautician after this
and remind myself "nothing comes free"
and always consult a doctor or qualified dermatologist.

oh by the way this is my face after "1st free trial"

I know, i know
it's a bloody mess.
That's why i put the picture at the end of this entry
