Stumbled upon this moving video clip on Youtube. The creator, Syeraph paired footages from Planet Earth, a BBC documentary with Comptine D’un Autre Ete L’apres Midi, a wonderful music piece by Yann Tiersen, from the soundtrack of Amélie. The series was broadcasted on both BBC and Discovery Channel.

The clip highlights our beautifully jungles, on the other hand, the music reminds us how fragile they are. Overall it really moves hearts, despite the stillness of the subject, trees.

Here is a link to a clip on the documentary: Planet Earth – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loL2eM8F_Dc&feature=related.

With daily downpour just before we call it a day at work, there is no better place to have your dinner than Nagomi Shabu-Shabu while waiting for the traffic to clear.

Beef Shabu-Shabu Set

Beef Shabu-Shabu Set

Nagomi offers traditional, authentic Japanese hotpot in a fine-dining ambience. The prices may be on the high side for an everyday, ordinary meal, the portion for its Shabu-Shabu Sets is big. The sets come with:-

1) a plate of sliced razor thin meat – beef, chicken (yes, razor thin chicken slices) or duck – or chunky sashimi – salmon or tuna;
2) a plate of vegetables;
3) a pot of broth – Nagomi, chicken or spicy;
4) a bowl of rice; and
3) 3 types of sauces – goma, chili & ponzu

The hot steam from the hotpot creats the perfect warm & cozy feeling amidst the cold & wet weather outside the restaurant. With the traffic jam, there is no hurry to finish the dinner – one can swish-swish slowly.

A Good Selection of Sashimi

Nagomi also offers a wide selection of sushi, sashimi, hand-rolls, snacks, alcoholic drinks and desserts. We particularly like the salmon sashimi for its freshness, apparently fresh deliveries arrive on Tuesday & Friday.

You can find Nagomi Shabu-Shabu in

1. Jaya 33, Section 13, PJ;
2. Hartamas Shopping Centre, Sri Hartamas; and
3. Menara Hap Seng, KL (near Shangri-la Hotel)

It also has a pretty cool website – www.nagomishabushabu.com.

A few days ago, my friends wanted to watch a movie. I said yes without knowing which movie my friends  had in mind. I later found out that it was a movie called “Max… something” and it’s about a video game becoming real. “Oh.. like Jumanji?” “Erm.. ya, I think so” Right.

So watching the movie with an expectation of a teenager being sucked into his PC, I got a little confused after 15 minutes of watching the show. I slowly realised that my friend was definitely wrong about the plot, so scraping my mind clean of any expectations, I returned my attention to the movie. After another half an hour, I found myself dozing off. I am not impressed with the movie. I sort of figured out the rest of the movie before the first hour.

The graphics, however, was fantastic. Unfortunately, that is the only nice thing that I can say for the movie. I found out AFTER the movie, that Max Payne is actually a video game. Sort of like Resident Evil. Duh

Well, the movie is not that bad. But if you’re not a Max Payne game fan, I’d suggest you borrow the DVD from a friend, rather than paying for the movie tickets.

“Mamma Mia.. Here I go again…”

Honest truth : Meryl Streep going ” You are the dancing queeeeeen, young and free, only seventeeeeen” doesn’t quite work for me. And 007 – the man with the license to kill – singing with sad droopy eyes filled with emotions? C’mon… I want the guns and the shades! And the singing, oh the singing… There were screeches everywhere!

However : ABBA can never go wrong. I found myself singing along and at some points, on top of my lungs too.  Good thing I didn’t watch this movie at the cinema or I might just encounter a terribly embarrassing episode. It made me dig up my ABBA CD I have not touched for some time. The dancing was a tad too ‘over’ for my taste but it did make me laugh. And the part where Donna was helping Sophie get ready for her wedding moved me to tears.

Well, overall I would still rate the movie as a must-watch. Pierce Brosnan was as dashing as ever, Colin Firth was the charming Englishman that he is and it is quite entertaining seeing Meryl Streep singing and dancing to Mamma Mia. And the ending (sigh) was just lovely…
