Transformers 3 Dark Of The Moon

Last night, i was privileged enough to watch the premier of Transformers 3 Dark Of The Moon with 4 friends courtesy of a church friend! Thank you so much!

Lets start off with the trailer here:

I would recommend this movie as Movie of the year, i must say Micheal Bay outdid himself this time round, i can't imagine if watching in 2D was great, what about 3D?
Definitely worth your time and money.

The movie is quite long about two and a half hour excluding all the cinematic trailer!
With a great line up of superstars including veteran actor John Malkovish and Frances McDormand, the old crew; Shia Lebouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyre Gibson and so.
The most funny appearance would be funny asian guy Ken Jeong which really fit his role well just being himself.

The new leading actress Rosie Huntington-Whitely fills in her role well as the girlfriend of Sam but also the Damsel in distress that does play a key-role in the end...Surprisingly! Most of the time, i though she was there for advertorial time, body or beauty but not a key-role, kudos to that.

Overall the story line was great, it followed the textbook of cinematic plot well, not leaving any missing spots or cliche moments too much, leaving a hint here and there with a big BANG of surprises and shocks to keep the viewers going and asking for more.

One little thing that changed the most was the role of Sam, he has been downgraded to playing a much smaller role and most of the time, we were being focused on the war as whole which is great because it is a intergalactic war.

Nothing more can be said about the Sentinel Prime which viewers would look on as a colossal figure of ancient power but only to be left in shock and awe few moments later in along the movie timeline.

One huge change in the movie is the emotional element, it was very well played out by the actors and the Autobots. Micheal Bay and team did a great job getting viewers to connect with the emotions running in the movie, you could understand the situation of the moment and i can say i heard a few sobs here and there in the theater during the emotional moments which is one of the movie's selling point if you asked me.

There was a underlying message which really struck me hard that Sam quoted once or twice in the movie "Do something that means something" or along that line. It got me thinking that sometimes i would want to mean something in someone or my life as well, not just living life as it is but doing something worthwhile to remember, something for the generations to come.

I wouldn't go on much longer and spoil this movie for you but I would definitely urge you to go check it out before time runs out, it would be one of the best movie you have watched this year alone. I would give it a 8 out of 10.

Music, Mind and ImagiNation

The stresses of life are always coming in on us day in day out wherever we are, whatever we are doing and no matter how hard we try, its just hard to let it go and just get on with life because stress is like a balloon, if you keep filling it up, one day its just going to "Boom!"

How then do we go about trying to let all that air out of our heads and body? Many people would pay big bucks for therapy, yoga, hypnosis, medication, massages, and so much more and i support that, its good to pamper and take up a activity which relaxes the body but how can we go about when money is a issue?

This blogger has been in the workforce for almost 7 months now and the stress amounted can be immense and great, this blogger has to admit he has gone about the wrong way to deal with this stress, when i eventually stumble upon a simple technique that can sooth you in just 10 or 5 mins, just to get through that day.

The technique is called Music Mind Relaxation.
Our minds are great imagination machines to the point where it becomes so real that you can literally touch it and feel it! So harnessing the power of our minds, our imagination and our sensors, this technique will take you for a short journey of our imagi-Nation and come back relaxed.

All you need to do is to first find some relaxing music or nature sounds, here are some links for you:

I prefer the beach cause its the best scene to picture in a mind.

Basically, just find any nature spot or sound you would really want to hear on YouTube. Done?

Right now wherever you are, in the office or at home, sit back, get comfortable, clear your take a deep breath and start the video.

Take off your shoes and socks if you want and just let yourself go into the sound and music,let your mind and imagination bring you to that place.

Feel your body in that place, feel it in your toes and feet all the way up to your body.

Let it flow in your body and feel relax, peace and of sound mind.

enjoy that time and block out the world for that moment, just relax.

As the video finishes, take another deep breath and remember that relaxing trip you had, bring that feeling back with you into the world.

That really worked for me and if it doesn't, don't feel too bad, it takes time to immerse in as your body has to relax and the mind emptied but if all else fails, just go do whatever you like and have fun.

Remember that you can work, produce, perform better and efficiently when you are relaxed and composed.

Have a great week and God Bless.

I Wish

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

Many of us have heard this famous phrase from Disney cartoons all the way to big movies or even story books but not many of us know that this phrase originated from a science-fiction short story book written by Alferd Bester, called "Star Light, Star Bright" but that is not what i really want to write about.

Its funny that many of us never really know what a word means; A wish in dictionary definition means "A Hope or Desire for something". I know I have made many wishes but many yet to come true, but does that mean all hope is gone?

All i know is that we get into the wishing mood on two occasion; One on our birthday; Two is when we are in a really tight spot and need a way out of it. That one wish that can change everything, that one wish that can change our fate, that one wish that can turn things around, that one wish that can make us happier, that one wish that fulfills our hearts desire, that one wish that can meets our wants, that one wish that we are wishing over and over again.

There are many wishes one can made but its only a fantasy, fairy tale or even a Hollywood life to believe they can come true in a blink of an eye or the star will fly down and grant us that one great wish. I am not saying that wishes don't come true but it gives the heart a hope that somewhere someone out there is hearing out for our wishes and prayer.

At the end of the day, everyone has a wish in their heart, that one glimmer of hope that one day it will come true, that one wish that is so precious, its like a piece of heaven to them. So why wish when we can pray?
For He is our all knowing father and He provides as He wills abundantly.

2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to bless you
abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Mark 11:24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Tired. Tired. Tired. 'How many times have you heard this word?'
or should I ask 'How many times have you heard yourself say it?'

Tired by dictionary definition refers to 'exhausted by exertion'; 'weary or bored.'

Have you ever seen yourself in this state?

I know I have many a times, being in a state of exhaustion, weary about the day, weary about the things to happen, weary about tomorrow, bored of the same old routine, bored of the same old mistakes that keeps repeating itself.

Exhausted + Weary + Bored of life = Tired of life.

We all face this dilemma once in a blue moon of our precious life, its the routine, the momentum of life, the status-quo and the stagnant life that drives us to this state be it one bad situation, work, family, friends, relationships, wealth, spirituality or self.

For me, I am tired that I am only 20 but working like a mule; I am tired that I am 20 and never had a great birthday bash; I am tired that I am 20 and never had a great birthday present; I am tired that I am 20 and still feel neglected amongst a sea of friends; I am tired that I am 20 but nobody appreciates or gives me recognition for the sacrifices I put in my life to make others happy out of a good heart and kindness but finding an empty space in myself because of that. Nobody helps the helper.

Its the tiredness that finally leads us to Give Up!

"I GIVE UP!" Many people, great or small, have uttered these three simple words over and over again in life due to a failure but not knowing that success was just around the corner, just around the bent with a little more push needed.

So I say, even though I am tired of everything that i have written in this post; friends, family, love, life, work, money, education, future, ambition, faith, church; I don't want to give up so easily because success is just around the corner no matter how big or small, it brings clarity, joy, relief and happyness, just to know all my effort, strength and sacrifices bought a little result. It will not be great, it may even suck but "big success begins with a small step of failures and results".

My hope of the day is that tomorrow is always a new day with new opportunities, no matter how tired you are, you are just taking a break, a step back from life to evaluate and then after that, you are going in with a new energy to breakthrough the day.

Just one touch

Have you ever wonder why people tend to shake hands when they met someone new?

Have you ever wonder why couples always hold each others hand?

Have you ever wonder why babies like to hold their parents hands?

Have you ever wonder why we want to hold hands?

Have you ever wonder why people cling onto hands in desperate and hard times?

Little do we know the power of "Touch" . Its that one little hand shake; that one moment of holdings hands under the beautiful sun and beach that last a romantic memory; that one little touch of hands that spark something in our mind and body. Its that touch that makes us feel connected.

Being humans as we are; Frail, Fragile, Wonderful, Fearfully and Beautifully created, we all need some kind of connection with other fellow human beings neither gender, age, religion nor color, we all feel the need to connect because isolation drives us crazy, it makes us feel like aliens. That's why when we handshake or touch someone in the appropriate places, we get this sort of comfortable connection, our hostility dies off to become hospitality, we welcome that person because amazingly we connect with that touch.

That's why the power of Touch is so powerful, it builds a connection that just defies our logic thinking and chemicals just race through our bodies. When couples hug or hold hands, they feel connected, they feel like they are one with their partner or when a girl makes contact with a guy like a breeze touch, we feel a connection to bond, it is also through that one touch that we feel secure and not alone, the list can go on forever.

Ever wonder how powerful your handshake or touch can be?

Give it a try today, go out and simply shake someone hand. Of course it also wouldn't hurt to give them a smile.

Its all these simple things in life like a smile, touch or a wave of hands that tells someone i acknowledge you; lets talk, connect and develop something here.

Walk With Me

Love was never on my mind
Till I saw you
Love, I have given up
Till I met you
Love, Was just a word
Till I fell for you

Walk with me
On the beach
We'll leave footprints in the sand
Footprints that will last in memories

Walk with me
In the park
We'll feel the grass and see the blue skies together
Smell and sight that will last in memories

Walk with me
On life's journey
Beauty We'll remember
Ugly we'll forget
Love or hate
Smile or frown
I'll always be there for you
Until we say "I Do" and forevermore

We haven met yet
we haven talk yet
we don't know each other yet

So I'll sing this song
Until the day you'll walk with me

What Happens Next?

Many a times we don't realize we would come upon a cross road in life, very important transition points in life.

One of which would be our education path and this is the time where we would be making BIG DECISIONS in life on where and what we want to study in the future because that would be our occupation in the end of the day.

Yes it is sometime scary and uncertain to know that we Form 6-ers wouldn't know which Uni we would wind up in and what we would be studying but a time of decision would come when we have to call the shoots and apply by faith that where ever we go, we can make it in there and in life.

After working for two months and gaining more experience than i ever have, i come to realize that at the end of the day, results would get you that far only but it is your characters that determines how far you would go because the working world always demands more than what you can do, its always about getting more and profiting more than what you earn at the end of the day but I have to say, the experience is priceless.

Right now, i would be applying for university soon and where ever i end up, I go with faith and believe that where ever i wind up in, I would give my best and shine as bright as i can in that place because its all in His plans.

The though of Uni to me is liberation and freedom, there we are given the chance to be independent and mature but most of all learn to live out of our comfort zone but most of all, a chance to make new and more friends especially for a single guy like me Hehe "XP"

What Happens Next? Life moves on, so must we.
