Movie review: Man of Steel (2013)

Image source

Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Micheal Shannon

I am never a fan of Superman, I can't really remember if I have watched any of the Superman series before.
But this one (though it is not named Superman but it's actually Superman, confused? :p), I decided to give it a try cause I've read positive reviews from blogger friends.

End up it's not a disappointment at all! The story line is interesting (mainly on how to save mankind from big devils), and I love all the graphics of those air crafts, planets, sci-fi actions and destructions and etc! I know this is not real but who cares? Haha xD

As for the main cast Henry Cavill (as Clark Kent), I tell you he is such a hot hunk!! Look at his muscles!! Seriously can make all the girls scream, hehe....

A movie worth watching =)

Ratings: 7/10

  3. i watched this on my birthday last week.. it's nice, not the traditional Superman where he is so invincible and never gets hurt, this one portrays the more "human" side of him..

    1. Yep, the story line is slightly different right?

  4. maybe we can treat this as the episode zero to all the Superman series, cos this one tells us where he is from and how he ended up working as a reporter..

  19. you know DC Comics right? There is too many version of superman . . .

    Man of Steel movie is another version of Superman, his earth dad die dam early ok . . . In another version of superman cartoon series such as Justice League (Cartoon network), his earth dad still alive ok lol . . .

    Remember Smallville? mostly talk about how superman grow and control his power.

    So man of steel is like short cut and introduce about superman earliest movie / villain.

      Ok, thanks for the 'clarification'!

  20. I also just watched it. I am a fan of comic heroes and this movie was great. However, somehow I felt it's more like an alien invasion movie than a superhero one. I still miss the old superman movies.

    1. Yes, they have lots of invasion this time...

  21. I'm a big fan, and I think the Man of Steel is AWFUL. WTF. I could easily mistaken thie movie for an Alien and Predator movie. So bad for me,. T___T But glad u had fun watching the hunky superman.

    2. TM don't look like Superman be the Man of Steel and save the world to make it a better place. Now the whole world is depending on you please go to the nearest phone booth. Ooops have not seen the movie, not sure if the latest Superman need to do a change since no red under wear is required?

      Delete
    3. Wah never know TM is such an important person to our country leh! xD

  24. This movie was quite violent but I loved this change of style. I think the latest macho actor is handsome too.

    1. Yes that's the thing I like about this movie!!

    2. BTW does the Man of Steel fly with both arms stretching forward? If yes then he is on automatic drive, where else the older version of Superman flies with left hand stretched forward and right hand by the side of his waist, they said he is on manual drive, need the right hand to change gear...hehe.

      Delete
    3. You are going Bananas! Watched movie until so detailed. Bad for eyes.

      Delete
    4. Bananaz let me answer your doubts, he is an auto driver. Both hands strenched to the front ;))

      TM, actually I never thought of that also... Bananaz reminds me, haha!

      Delete
  25. If Superman flies over England or bolehland he needs to change hand coz its a left-hand traffic. That's why we often see pixz of Superman with either left or right hand by the waist as he has to abide by the rules of the right or left-hand traffic...o.o

    1. If he flies over Malaysia, he needs to wear mask and goggles!

    2. LOL Bananaz, beh tahan with your comments la!! xD

    1. Yep I personally think it's good!

  28. I think that the one really good thing about Man of Steel is this....the graphic and fighting scene. Plot wise was predictable if you were a Superman fan....honestly, nothing to shout about but maybe for a non Superman followers, the movie is entertaining enough....like your review on it. Very honest, simple and genuine....

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

To Penang again

Another Penang trip sponsored by my brother <3

The last staycation at Penang was during April (Click HERE to read).



Driving to Penang is easy for me, just about an hour, smooth drive along the highway and on the bridge, slightly jam from Gurney towards Batu Ferringhi though~ 

And here we are! This time we checked into Park Royal resort again, because we got a complimentary upgrade to suite rooms as promised by the manager 😁
The lounge area is now opened after refurnished, very big and comfortable place 
Waiting to check in, wefie first la! 😄
Welcome drinks

Check-in was fast, the boys can't wait to see the rooms!



The room is big and nice with all basic necessities, nothing much to complain la haha!


Complimentary snacks and nutmeg juice


It has a smaller toilet outside...


... and a bigger one with bathtub near the bed. Needless to say, my sons were the most excited ones when they see the bathtub! 😊



Without wasting times, we changed into our swimming attires and off to the…
