Accompanied by Arwin and Eugene.

Yours truly, as taken by the laptop camera.

Just a couple of minutes left now..

The Domodedovo airport in Moscow is fucking hot. So, my advice to all is, prepare yourself, and do whatever you can to keep cool. As for me, I'm wearing a buttoned shirt, so I just open my shirt a bit. Better still, using cool water in the toilet to cool down my face and neck area. I don't know, maybe there's no ventilation at all. What I can confirm is, there's no air conditioning at all. I think that's about it. I'm supposed to be lining up now to board the Emirates flight from Moscow to Dubai. Its going to take 5 or 6 hours, I never really pay attention hehe. Well, I'll keep you guys updated in Dubai. Have a nice day.

Extract from DramaWiki :

The story follows a brain surgeon named, Minakata Jin, who has spent the last two years in anguish, as his fiancee lies in a vegetative state after an operation he performed. One day, he faints at the hospital and awakens to find himself transported back in time to the Edo period. He is soon attacked by a samurai, but he escapes with the help of a man named Kyotaro. Kyotaro suffers a serious injury to the head while trying to protect him, but Jin manages to save his life despite a lack of proper medical equipment. Because of that, Kyotaro's sister Saki begins taking an interest in Jin and becomes his assistant. Meanwhile, Jin is determined to find a way back to the present.

Well, this is by far the most interesting medical J-dorama that I encountered. The procedures are much more real than the ones that I've seen in other doramas. It gets good rating from and it has a viewership rating of 18.9, which is quite a big deal. We can also see how the samurai is a different class to the peasants and normal people, which almost always hassle their way of life, and the transformation of Edo (the old name of Tokyo) into a much more modern place.

I'll be flying back home this Friday, so hopefully I can finish watching it by then. =)

..FC Spartak Moscow..

Currently sitting pretty in 4th place. Funnily enough the board was still not happy.

I'm now starting a new league, attempting to relive the glory days of Spartak and break the domination of CSKA Moscow, Zenit St Petersburg and new superpower Rubin Kazan. The money in the coffers was quite decent, but I had to sell some players to balance the team. I'm still trying to find a good RWB and a strike partner for Welliton. My vision is to finish in the top 4 in my first season, maybe getting a Europa League berth, and some useful cash injection. The problem is, where to find Russian players who are more than ambitious to get to Spartak. Mind you, Spartak hasnt won anything for a very long time.

I got quite a handsome sum of money from the selling of playmaker Alex to Spanish giants Barcelona, and also by selling the rest of the deadwood. My favorite transfers going to the club was surely the Russians, Victor Boudianskiy, Victor Faizulin and Anton Bober. Fabian Monzon is also doing well with his excellent statistics backing him.

Expensive, but worth the buy. Very consistent.Work rate is very good. I'm still expecting the more from him for years to come. A very good DC from the Ukraine.

Argentinian LWB Fabian Monzon with very good stats. Loads of green signs in the picture above, meaning that he is already very talented.

Solid at the back as usual. Old timer, high influence level and all sort of things.

Welliton is my goal machine. Man, seriously.

..KL Drift Evolution..

So yesterday in my boredness, I've watched 2 Malaysian movies, Evolusi KL Drift and Evolusi KL Drift 2, just to know what the heck it is about. I'm a big fan of racing, I love Formula1, rally cars, and the manga Initial D. I even watched the Hongkong movie of Initial D alone in the cinema. But I'm not a motorhead, I dont really know what to deal with my car if it breaks down, I just know how to drive it, like a normal person would. EKD and EKD2 was quite fun to watch, but the acting was only just bearable, urgh. Here's the pro's and con's.

What I like about it :

1. I would obviously love to support Malaysian movies.
2. Especially if it has big budgets like these 2 movies.
3. Its nice to see a Malaysian movie with loads of cool drift cars in it.
4. Iqram Dinzly and Shaheizy Sam managed to look like maniacs and able lieutenants.
5. Aaron Aziz was very taiko like.
6. Theres a clubbing scene with hot chicks in EKD, sadly, as it was at a club, theres not much light.
7. Good to see some racing in Putrajaya. I always liked the wide roads and scene at night.
8. Scha Al-Yahya is cute.
9. The only good actors in these movies are Aaron Aziz and Farid Kamil. The rest are add ons.
10. Cops also knows how to drift! I respect Remy Ishak's character. I wish every cop was like him. Theres no need for that moustache though.
11. A character died in EKD, with my friends' name, Razi, hahaha.
12. The racing in the streets of KL was more believable, unlike Impak Maksima.
13. Good to see that the hero in this movie tries his hardest not to let people sell drugs at his place.

What I dont like about it :

1. I'd like to see it more realistically, whats wrong with having a Wira or any other national cars?
2. KL is supposed to be full of Mat Rempit, where are they when they were street racing?
3. I hate Fasha Sandha's corn row hair.
4. I hate how Shaheizy Sam and Aaron Aziz puts chinese slang in their Malay conversations.
5. Too much exposure of their sponsor, Toyo Tires in the beginning of EKD2. Its called product placement.
6. I would like to see more of Farid Kamil helping his friend in EKD2, instead they made him unable even to drive.
7. Syamsul should stick to directing, not really acting in his own movies.
8. Need more hot chicks.
9. Malaysian street racers dont use NOS?
10. If Remy Ishak's police drift car had blue police lights it would be more awesome.
11. Instead of crying and sobbing, Syamsul should call the ambulance when Scha was dying.
12. Its funny when they raced in all kinds of places, theres no toll booths.
13. Lets see them drifting in the highway roads up to Cameron Highland or Genting Highland.
14. Please use actors that can really act.

All in all, I give the movies 3 out of 5, because Malaysia need more action-packed movies instead of cheap horror flicks and stupid comedy stuffs. Later I'll review a more interesting movie, Budak Kelantan.

Monday, July 12, 2010 top 10 bookmarked websites..

10. The Star

My first click if I want to know stuffs in Malaysia and keep me posted on things. Yes, there are a lot of ads and other random stuffs, but The Star could fill me in nicely.

9. Livescore

Everytime theres EPL or any other friendlies, Livescore is the place to go. The results are faster than watching a game by streaming.

8. Youtube

What can you say? Almost all mainstream videos can be seen here. But the security is very tight though. What a kill-joy.

7. Cracked

If you want light reading, with a lot of comedy, plus interesting facts, Cracked is the place to go. Cracked never fails to make me laugh.

6. ESPN Soccernet

Whenever I open my internet browser, Soccernet is a must place to go. Its official, but sometimes the news are fishy (I'm talking to you Harry Harris). The news is a bit dreary but its ok.

5. Blogger

Well, obviously, since I am a blogger. Its fun to see the blogs of other people, without the need to actually interact or see them hehe. Its the cyber era.

4. Football365

Well what can you say, I'm a football junkie of course! =D Football365 offers news with an informal twist, unlike Soccernet. F365 is a bit light on the news and they can afford to crack some jokes.

3. Planetf1

With that said, I'm also an F1 junkie! Hehe. Planetf1 is the sister site of F365, so you do know what to expect.

2. Footytube

Always patiently waiting for EPL or other football matches to be uploaded at Footytube. You have to be fast though, because the authorities will quickly delete the videos. Jerks.

1. Facebook

This is a no brainer. =p
