District 9

it has been a while.

My movie day it not really interesting nowadays, not only because i don't have much time to watch as i spend most of my time in the hospital or sleeping, but it also contribute by the fact that most movies today are sucks.

Let us start from Transformer 2. It was a big movie. Yes, i could not deny that it was one of the best movie ever in term of action, graphic, all the boom inside it make my adrenal gland stimulated. But it lacks of something. I could not describe that thing but when i watched transformer for the second time, i did not have that feeling that i had when i watch the first movie a year ago. Transformer 1 is unbeatable. I like transformer 2 but too much action, and too little story.

Then i watch harry potter. I am not a fan of it. But i'm watching it with a fan of Harry potter. Then i gett so boring.... and not only me, that big fan of harry potter also said that the movie is boring. Compare to other harry potter movies. So, my worse movie day again.

With some pressure, i force myself to go and watch GI Joe last week. From the beginning i felt that GI Joe is just a movie with unlogical thing however, compare to transformer, i did not like the unlogical thing in GI Joe. It was boring. and the story line is too plain. I know they will win, a twist of the bad guys becoming a president is too predictable. And the basic history if the organization is not so well presented. So one worse movie again.

Then i don't have anymore anticipated movie to watch. I walk around the cinema, then i realize some poster showing "No Human allowed!" movie titled District 9. Plain sound. Could be boring.

As i watch that movie, i don't have intention to watch it but since there is no other thing to watch, i found out that the beginning of the movie is kind of Cloverfield-like. But still, it look like a documentary. I began to hope that the documentary part is only a small portion of the movie. I want to see good image in it. Guess what, i am not dissapointed by this one.

District 9 is a movie so different from other movie, and the story is unpredictable. I could not predict the end, the climax.. it have that element of surprise. I really like it.

In the end, i learn my lesson, a good movie, does not really have to be promoted so fiercefully as transformer, harry potter, gi joe and everything. One it needs is a fresh new idea and story.

For those who has not watch this movie, try and watch it. I like the idea of the movie. Sometime it is funny. Sometimes there is a lesson that we can learn from it.

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

It has been years since I took an exam paper, this time I had to. To continue in master program, we need to sit for an exam organized by KKM along with Universities which were held in University Malaya this year. Living and working in Sabah, going to University Malaya Ticket, accomodation, transportation such as taxi, all need to be accounted for. Unfortunately, this year exam were held a month earlier than scheduled and the information regarding that arrive to us like 2 weeks before that. We were pretty much stressed out because the air ticket prices were all expensive. We have no choices as the everything was on short notice. I hate this kind of situation.
