EXCLUSIVE ViDeO: HaRRY PoTTeR AnD THe HalF BLooD PRiNCe...



QUICK SYNOPSIS: Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.

Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas and Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! Then there's Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again. And yet, as in all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to apparate and lose a few eyebrows in the process.

The Weasley twins expand their business. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. So it's the home front that takes center stage in the multilayered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here at Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.

P/s: Released date is on the 21th November 2008. I can't wait to see it...HeHeHe!!!

EZaM MeeTs PM, ReJoiNs UMNO...



"EZaM AKHiRNYa Ke UMNO JUGa"...

Dengan rasmi Ezam memohon masuk Umno pada 28/5/08. Borang diserah sendiri pada Dato' Seri Abdullah Badwi di Bangunan Parlimen. Pelik, tapi itu yang berlaku pada saudara Ezam yang saya kenali rapat dan saya kagum dengan stail kepimpinan beliau. Beliau sanggup di ISA, dipenjara kerana OSA. Satu ketika dulu menurut Tun Musa Hitam beliau matang waktu muda kerana kehebatan beliau waktu memimpin gerakan PKR.

Namun beliau telah membuat keputusan sendiri untuk menyertai Umno dalam keadaan Umno sudah tidak laku, terutama di kalangan generasi siber. Tidakkah beliau terfikir kawan-kawan beliau yang balik menyertai Umno seperti Roslan Kassim, Zaid Mat Arif, Hamdan Taha, Hanafiah Man dan lain-lain lagi. Di manakah mereka sekarang ini dalam persada politik Umno. Saya cuba merayu beliau melalui SMS supaya jangan masuk Umno. Beliau membalas kepada saya jam 2.10 pagi 26/5/05 ketika saya dalam perjalanan pulang berceramah di Selinsing Perak. SMS beliau menyatakan sudah final untuk ke UMNO dan ada agenda tersendiri.

Apabila mengingatkan kehebatan beliau tiba-tiba beliau masuk Umno. Maka di sini kita perlu mengambil pengajaran bersama;

1. Doalah selalu supaya kita mati dalam perjuangan Islam seperti yang diajar oleh nabi kita Muhammad s.a.w "Wahai hati yang berbolak balik, tetapkanlah hati dalam agamamu".

2. Perjuangan biarlah jelas, bukan untuk agenda peribadi mana-mana pihak.

3. Sering muhasabah diri kalau kita meninggalkan perjuangan satu pengkhianatan kepada perjuangan dan sahabat-sahabat yang lain.

4. Mendatangkan fitnah kepada perjuangan parti, kerana orang menganggap bahawa semua orang yang berjuang tidak boleh dipercayai.

5. Masalah peribadi jangan menjadi alasan untuk kita keluar parti. Kerana perjuangan kita, mesti nawaitu kerana Allah.

Akhirnya kita perlu berdoa "Ya Allah kalau hidup ini baik untuk agamamu dan hidupku maka panjanglah umurku, Ya Allah kalau hidup ini tidak baik untuk agamamu dan hidupku matikanlah aku". Biarlah kita mati atas prinsip yang benar dan hidup mulia. Jangan mati dalam keadaan kita dianggap tidak mempunyai pendirian yang kukuh. Apa yang kita hendak cari dalam dunia ini melainkan keredaan Allah, bukan keredaan manusia. Wallahualam. - UsTaz IDRiS AHMad (HaRaKaH DaiLY ONLiNe)

Dr. M FLieS BacK To RouSinG WeLCoMe...

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad came back to a rousing and emotional welcome when he arrived here from Tokyo yesterday. Shouts of Hidup Tun (long live Tun) reverberated as the former Prime Minister addressed and thanked the crowd with a loud speaker from the sunroof of a four-wheel-drive vehicle after he touched down at the Subang airport about 6pm.

Dr. Mahathir, had recently quit Umno, the party he led for more than two decades. He was accompanied by his wife Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. “Thank you. If I’m not wrong, when I was an Umno member before, the welcome that I received was no different than now. “When I was an Umno member, I was not treated like one, so there is no difference in becoming a member or not,” he said to resounding cheers.

The crowd comprised mainly Umno branch leaders from Jerlun, Kedah to show support towards Dr. Mahathir. Dr. Mahathir continued his scathing remarks against current party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and accused him of being afraid of Singapore. “I feel very sad as the Umno members and leaders now are no longer prioritising the party’s fight. Instead they are only fighting to retain Abdullah. Now, the impression is no loyalty to Abdullah means no loyalty to the party.” - THe STaR ONLiNe

P/s: These are the special pictures of the Optimus Prime Premium Series-Takara TOMY version which is only available in Japan. The paint jobs are way better than the normal version of the Hasbro premium series with some chrome touch up at the front grill and with some custom paint of the energy sword as well. Indeed, you'll see that the head is also being painted with some metallic silver paint at the left and right sides of the head. You'll have to pre-order from the underground shop despite the facts that these figures are fully imported from Japan and it's not being made by the Hasbro-China production line. So, these exclusive figures would be probably being sold with the price of RM230++. Quite expensive but worth of buying it...HeHeHe!!

'EMPaT SYaRaT PaKai GeLanG BeRMaGNeT'...

Gelang bermagnet yang semakin popular dipakai lelaki dengan niat membaiki kesihatan harus memenuhi empat syarat, kata ketua penolong mufti Perak, Zamri Hashim. Syarat-syarat tersebut:

1) Pemakainya tidak beriktikad (yakin di dalam hati) bahawa gelang itu memberi kesan kesembuhan kerana yang memberi kesan itu hanyalah Allah,
2) Pemakainya tidak berniat memakainya kerana menyerupai wanita dan bukan untuk bermegah-megah.
3) Gelang mesti terbukti mempunyai kesan saintifik dan secara klinikal mempunyai pengaruh terhadap pengaliran darah di dalam tubuh seperti didakwa oleh pakar yang berwibawa.
4) Jika pemakaian gelang itu menimbulkan fitnah terhadap maruah si pemakai, lebih baik lelaki itu memakai baju berlengan panjang yang dapat menyembunyikan gelang berkenaan.

YeT ANoTHeR WaSTe OF TaXPaYeRs MoNeY: "Be PRePaReD FoR SNaP PoLLs"...

PUTRAJAYA: The Election Commission (EC) has informed its officers to be prepared for a snap election, said chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman. Stressing that he was not one to speculate, Abdul Rashid said the EC was prepared “for anything” and was capable of handling a snap election as it had all necessary infrastructure in place.

In an interview with mStar Online yesterday, he revealed that after the post-mortem of the 12th General Election, he had instructed all returning officers (RO) to be prepared for any eventuality. Similarly, the 140,000 people involved in the general election have also been advised to not refuse when called upon again for duty in the event of a snap election. “But I don’t want to speculate, and it is not for us to speculate, but we are prepared for anything. In the past two months of meeting with the ROs, I’ve already told them to be prepared as it may be called anytime,” he said.

Abdul Rashid was responding to talk on recent events that have led to speculations of Umno members defecting from the party en masse and even party hopping following Barisan Nasional's dismal showing in the elections. Various parties have since come forward in favour of an anti-hopping law proposed by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim in March. In the same light, tension has been fuelled in Barisan following the shocking announcement of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s resignation from Umno on Monday.

Political observer Dr. Chandra Muzaffar said the possibility of a snap election in the near future could not be dismissed. “However, I do not consider it as a serious possibility, only that in politics, such possibilities cannot not be rejected outright,” he said. Universiti Putra Malaysia political communications lecturer Associate Prof Dr. Abdul Muati @ Zamri Ahmad said it was possible a snap election could take place if MPs were to cross over. - The StaR ONLiNe

P/s: Now we're probably going to spend yet another more allocation from the taxpayers money to support another 'clean' election at anytime from now. Is it gonna be another controversial issues as regards to the usage of indelible ink this time? If it does gonna be a crossover of the political parties, just do it ASAP. Do it smart, efficient and most importantly don't ever make any noises of doing that to the UMNO so that they don't have any choices of dissolving again the parliament for the new mandate!! Forget the ethical or non-ethical approaches. The new federal government must be formed quickly before they start to think of snap polls....

McLaReN DRiVeR HaMiLToN ReiGNs IN WeT CoNDiTioNs...

DELIGHTED Briton Lewis Hamilton realised a childhood dream yesterday when he won the Monaco Grand Prix and took over as leader in this year's Formula One drivers' world championship. As a boy, Hamilton, now 23, grew up watching his hero Brazilian Ayrton Senna win the famous race around the streets of the Mediterranean principality six times for McLaren. In this year's 66th running of the classic event, he did it himself, winning for McLaren in memorable fashion in a race twice interrupted by Safety Car interventions, littered with incidents and accidents and finally shortened by two laps from the usual 78 to 76 to finish within two hours.

Hamilton emerged from the carnage, rain, puddles and chaos ahead of all his rivals to claim the first victory by an Englishman in Monaco since 1969. But he needed to ride his luck after an early crash, after six laps, into the barriers at Tabac where he almost wrecked his right rear wheel. This enabled him to revise his strategy and this gave him great assistance as the race unfolded in his favour. At the finish, after leaping from his car, he slipped between the security guards on the track to hug and dance with his father Anthony and the McLaren team. It was an emotional moment.

The win was Hamilton's second this year and sixth of his career. “That was such a long race, I thought it was never going to end,” said Hamilton afterwards. “It is just a dream for me to win here. It is unreal for me and to be on top of the championship again is all too much. “I said it would be an eventful race, but I didn't expect this! Had it not been for the early puncture at Tabac and the brilliant work by the team to get me back out there I would not be here now as the winner.” Hamilton's win has reignited the scrap for this year's drivers' world championship.

He now has 38 points with defending champion Finn Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari second, after failing to score, on 35 and Brazilian Felipe Massa, who started from pole and finished second, now third on 34. Hamilton came home three seconds clear of his friend Pole Robert Kubica in a BMW Sauber with Brazilian Felipe Massa third for Ferrari after starting from pole position. Force India's Adrian Sutil lost what would have been a superb fourth in an unfancied car when Raikkonen cannoned into the back of the German on lap 68, forcing his retirement. This all left Hamilton on top of the title race again for the first time since the season opening race in Australia. - AFP

P/s: Thanks to Sam and James from the Toy-Workers for telling me earlier that you're going to have a presale of the Transformers Animated action figures Wave 1. This means that these action figures have landed to Malaysia officially and I think that Hasbro Malaysia is on the move of distributing these figures as quick as lightning (very, very hot stuff)...HeHeHe!! As for the anticipation of having these figures, I accidentally bought 3 of them (the Deluxe Class) which are the Cybertronian Mode Optimus Prime (1 unit) and Bumblebee (2 unit). 'Alhamdulilah' they gave me the normal price and 1 of the bumblebee I wish to give it to my niece 'uyul'. Lately, she always persuades me of giving her one of my Transformers toys and she always wanted the 'yellow vehicle' one...HeHeHe!! I guess that she might have aimed it for quite some time just because of my toys were displayed openly in the room...HaHaHa!! 'Takpela, kalu uyul makan nasi, Pak Lang bagi la mainan tu'...OK guys, if you happen to be in Subang Jaya and wanted to have these hot stuffs with the best price in town, do hunt it at the Toy-Workers Shop located at the Subang Jaya Square (just beside the Taylor's College Building). Happy hunting!!...(Disclaimer: I've nothing to do with company profit taking or to be their solely agent of promoting their goods...HeHeHe!!)

Now, it is worth more than RM120 each (normal price is RM49.90) or maybe the price could be much higher if it is being auctioned at the e-bay website...HeHeHe!!! From the unofficial sources said that these action figures will be the last to be manufactured despite the facts that they are going to give away for the transformers premium series and transformers animated as well to be sold abundantly. So, I do expect these two action figures could be worth of selling when the right time comes...HeHeHe!!

EZaM To ReJoiN UMNO...

Former PKR Youth leader Ezam Mohd Nor will be rejoining Umno after receiving the green light from the top Umno leadership. He will also cease to head the anti-corruption NGO, Gerak, from June 1 in preparation for his return to Umno. Mohd Nazree Yunus has been named to take over as chairman of Gerak. Sources said he has met both the Umno president as well as deputy president for discussions in connection with his move.

His return to Umno is expected to be announced soon and will be seen as a blow to PKR. Ezam, 40, was a rising star in Umno when he chose to follow Datuk Seri Anwar Irahim out of Umno after the latter’s sacking in 1998. He was then Anwar’s political secretary and had also gone to jail under the ISA and OSA. He resigned from PKR last year after an internal power struggle with PKR vice-president Azmin Ali. At the time of his resignation, he criticised Anwar for his “dictatorial politics” and accused Azmin of being “a schemer who dominates Anwar.”

Ezam has since concentrated on Gerak which is aimed at promoting a corruption-free culture, free media and independent judiciary. There is some speculation about his future role in Umno including the possibility of appointing him a Senator. But the source said that he was content to be an ordinary member for a start. Sources said the timing for his rejoining Umno could not be better given the Government’s initiative to strengthen judicial independence and the anti-corruption legislation - THe STaR ONLiNe

P/s: I don't see the returning of Ezam into UMNO will make any differences. According to my father-in-law, he is still backing his former boss (Anwar) and the only reason he wasn't interested anymore into the political area was to manage Anwar's business company at the Indonesia. That was the source which I've got from unofficial sources. If it is not to drastic to presume, I think that Anwar is planning something with the UMNO by 'approving' his invisible man (Ezam) to penetrate into UMNO and start reshuffling within the UMNO main trackline to eliminate 'cancer' or should I quoted from Dr. Mahathir 'gangrene' that has broaden into UMNO's each of everyone political minds. It is not an impossible move but it will take some time to 'cure'...Who knows!!!

P/s: These are the close up pictures of the new Transformers Premium Series Voyager Class Blackout which happen to be the most detail figure of all classes so far. It has officially landed on Malaysia for the last two weeks and it has already snapped by the Transformers gigs in just a few hours after being displayed at the Toy's R Us Mid Valley Megamall...HeHeHe!! I've been told by one of the staff that a few Chinese guys have already opened the boxes at the store room without any authorization from the store Manager. They snatched a lot of hot stuffs such Premium Series Barricade, Jazz, Blackout, Ironhide and maybe Bumblebee. They acted like some kind of Gangsters until one of the top managers has to interfere and asked them not to do that again without any authorization. They have the intention to buy the stuffs but the way they acted can't be accepted at all. They knew these stuffs could be sold more than the normal price. They knew that they could get double from the price. I hope that the management has taken pre-emptive measurement in order to verify these irresponsible acts soon before somebody could get hurt...HeHeHe!! (Tengah-tengah dok carik kotak tu, ade lak orang lain nampak and nak jugak...bergaduhh jadinye!!) OK! Enough of that....For those who are still searching for it, I'd like to suggest by going to the Alamanda Putrajaya Megamall whereby there are most probably being distributed at the Carrefour Hypermarket or at the Parkson (Toy's R Us is located inside the Parkson). Success rate of getting the toys could be high (90%) because of the location of this megamall is quite outskirt from the Klang Valley. Do hunt for it before it's gone again guys...HeHeHe!!...The price would be RM99.90 which is much the same with the normal price although a lot of extraordinary changes have been made to the figure (at first I thought that the price would be much higher than the previous price).

EXPerT: Dr. MaHaTHiR’s DeCiSioN WiLL HaSTeN RiSe OF ANWaR...

THE decision by former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to quit Umno will catalyse the rise of PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, reported China Press. Current affairs commentator Datuk Dr. Cheah See Kian was quoted by the daily as saying that the current political scenario could pave the way for Anwar to become the next prime minister.

He believed the current “battle” between Dr. Mahathir and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi would certainly cause dissatisfaction among Umno leaders and members. As such, he foresees some of them jumping ship and collaborating with Anwar, which would ultimately lead to Anwar regaining political power. Dr. Cheah said Dr. Mahathir was keen to see a “reshuffle” within Umno. He added that Dr. Mahathir was hopeful that his “preferences” would move up the ranks.

Dr. Cheah believed that Dr. Mahathir would not like to see his nemesis Anwar rise and gain control, but at the same time, he also did not like Abdullah to be at the helm. “His preferred candidate to become the next PM is most likely Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the Umno vice-president,” he said. Dr. Cheah also said he believed the MCA and Gerakan would not break away from Barisan Nasional. “Even if they do, where are they going to head to?” he asked. The daily quoted MCA veteran Tan Sri Michael Chen as saying that party president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting should not be solely blamed for the dismal results in the last general election. He said Ong was “at the helm at the wrong time” as even the strongest political veteran would not have survived the political tsunami - THe StaR ONLiNe

The decision of former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to quit Umno is upsetting but it may actually be a blessing in disguise because a "thorn in the flesh" has been removed from the party, said his former deputy Tun Musa Hitam. “The news of Dr. Mahathir’s decision is indeed upsetting, especially now when Umno is facing challenging times,” said Musa in a press statement.

“However, Umno members should accept his decision calmly and with an open mind,” Musa added. He felt that the Umno leadership should instead focus on accepting the fact that the party was no longer as powerful as it used to be. Furthermore, Umno is not as widely accepted, especially by the Malays, as it once was. The Umno leaders should also accept that the concept of “Mahathirism” is outdated. They instead should return to the concept of “Bersih, cekap, amanah” which was positively received by the nation in the 1980s.

Party members ought to reflect on recent events. Musa felt that Umno has strayed from its purpose and should take this opportunity to return to its roots. “Umno is a party which is firmly grounded and does not forget to realise its promises to the people,” he said. Umno veteran and stalwart Tan Sri Aziz Tapa, 85, said that he was shocked at the news and was lost for words. “How can it be when he (Mahathir) says that he loves Umno? I met him only few days ago in Johor and everything seemed okay. What he is doing is not right,” he said when contacted here yesterday. Umno supreme council member Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Chik also could not come to terms with the news. “It's shocking news to me. If true, then I would say that it is an interesting yet tragic development for the party,” he said yesterday. However, both men said they were unable to comment much on the matter until a clearer picture emerged - The StaR ONLiNe

DR. MaHaTHiR EVeNTuaLLY QUiTs FRoM UMNO...

ALOR STAR: Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has announced he is quitting Umno, in what is seen as his final push to force Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to step down as Prime Minister and party president. His wife Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali has also quit, according to his website BLoG CheDeT

Dr. Mahathir also called on Umno members to join him in this radical move, which he likened to “removing gangrene” in order for the party to survive. Except for two party veterans and one branch in the Merbok division, there were no other takers. Abdullah, who expressed shock at Dr. Mahathir's decision, however, reiterated that he would not give in to the pressure from the former premier.
Party deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak offered to meet Dr Mahathir to “discuss the decision” to quit. Dr. Mahathir has been on the warpath against Abdullah since 2004, claiming his successor was unfit for the job and has stepped up his attacks after Barisan Nasional's disastrous results in the March 8 general election - The STaR

Former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad said he met Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak after the Prime Minister said he would not stop the meeting. However, he did not disclose what they discussed. Earlier last week, Dr. Mahathir claimed that he wanted to meet Najib after the general election to discuss current issues but that Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had not allowed his deputy to do so. The next day, May 8, Abdullah said he had not prevented Najib from meeting Dr Mahathir.

“After Pak Lah said that, we met. He said he wanted to meet so I met him, lah,” he told reporters yesterday after launching the book Kismet, a biography on the life, contributions and sacrifices of the late Sher Mohamed Allah Baksh. On the claim by Kota Belud MP Abdul Rahman Dahlan that he had been offered enough money for three generations to join PKR, Dr. Mahathir said: “It’s all about money today. If there’s money, they can jump into any boat. “All of them dare not speak out because of money. They want positions.” On DAP Chairman Karpal Singh not budging from his position on the Sultan of Perak ordering the reinstatement of the state religious head who had been removed by the Mentri Besar, he said: “That’s what happens when the Government is weak. The people don’t respect you anymore.” - THe STaR

UKM: WaSTaGe OF TaXPaYeRs MoNeY!!...

Gesaan Ahli Parlimen (PAS-Kubang Kerian), Salahuddin Ayub, dalam sidang Dewan Rakyat baru-baru ini, agar Menteri Pengajian Tinggi segera membuat tinjauan ke Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, bagi mengetahui kemungkinan berlaku salah guna kuasa membabitkan naib canselornya, mendapat perhatian warga kampus berkenaan.

Sebahagian besar mereka, terutama kalangan tenaga akademik, bukan sahaja menyambut baik cadangan Ketua Pemuda PAS Pusat itu, malah mahu ia disegerakan, bagi mengelak keadaan di UKM itu bertambah parah. "Menteri Pengajian Tinggi dan pegawai-pegawainya, kalau boleh esok pergilah ke UKM. Adakanlah pertemuan dengan mereka yang bertanggungjawab terhadap isu pelantikan Prof Dr Tan Hock Lim dengan gaji RM168,000 sebulan dan beliau telah menjadi suatu masalah besar kepada UKM pada hari ini," tegas Salahuddin ketika membahaskan usul menjunjung kasih titah Yang di-Pertuan Agong, minggu lalu.

Naib Canselor UKM, Prof Dato' Dr Sharifah Hapsah Syed Hasan Shahabudin, dikatakan menawarkan jawatan Profesor Ulung kepada Dr Tan, 59, secara tidak mengikut peraturan yang ditetapkan, dengan imbuhan lumayan, iaitu lebih RM8 juta sepanjang tempoh perkhidmatannya selama 48 bulan, berkuat kuasa 1 Oktober 2007. Salahuddin dalam ucapannya menegaskan, beliau membangkitkan hal itu di Parlimen kerana ia melibatkan soal integriti dan perbelanjaan dana awam. "Kita kena ingat UKM ditubuhkan oleh rakyat. Ingat pejuang-pejuang UKM dahulu membawa tabung-tabung ke kampung-kampung. Ini sejarah UKM. Rakyat memberikan derma untuk menubuhkan UKM. Rakyat yang menubuhkan UKM. Hari ini jangan ada tangan-tangan dan termasuklah apa yang saya hendak sebut pada hari ini adalah tentang Naib Canselornya Prof Dr Sharifah Hapsah," tegasnya lagi.

Beliau seterusnya mencadangkan agar ditubuhkan satu tribunal khas untuk menyemak kembali prestasi Dr Sharifah Hapsah demi menjaga nama baik UKM memandangkan hal itu sudah menjadi rungutan besar kepada warga kampus berkenaan. "Wang rakyat dihabiskan dengan gaji yang begini besar. Apakah tidak ada lagi tokoh-tokoh akademik yang boleh mengganti tempat beliau?" tambah Salahuddin. Beliau mengingatkan agar kontoversi perlantikan Dr Tan Hock Lim itu "jangan sampai dikorbankan UKM demi masa depan rakyat". - HaRaKaHDaiLY

To David Yates, although you are still directing the new movie line until the end of the chapter (the half blood prince), hopefully that you'll take some notes of directing the scenes seriously. Don't just discard the main characters that have been appeared since the 1st chapter e.g.: Ron Wisley, Hermione and etc. Actually, they have big influences on making this film sequel successful. Make it as balance as possible in term of the main characters role and number of appearances in the scene.

BaRRiCaDe AND JaZZ PReMiuM SeRiEs ARe IN MY PoSSeSSiON NoW...HeHeHe!!

P/s: Wowww!!!..No words can be described the latest of these Transformers action figure toys. These are the Premium Series as I've posted few of the YouTube video clips which showing you the video preview of these action figure toys done by Sean Long and that you have it. It was in front of me now. In fact, it has landed in Malaysia for the first time. I have it in my possession now...HeHeHe!! The price was quite impressive. The cost was about RM50 each. Not bad ekk? I got from Toy-Workers Shop at Subang Jaya, Selangor. Thanks to Sam and James for putting aside and save it for me before being snapped by other Transformer gigs...At my first glimpse, I'd say that it was marvellous of having these toys. Colour schemes were being improved a lot and as a matter of fact, the labels were retrofitted as similar as the exact vehicles in the movie. No wonder, it is a hardcore hunting act for those who are willingly to find it with any kind of circumstances....

THe BN's MPs CRoSSoVeR ARe ReaL!!...

Parti Keadilan Rakyat is in real” discussions with Barisan Nasional Members of Parliament (MPs) to cross over to Pakatan Rakyat. “The discussions are on. They are very real. Over 30 Barisan MPs have decided to join the opposition coalition. The opposition only need 30 more MPs from Barisan to form the federal government. It is only a matter of time,” said PKR Sabah liasion chief Ansari Abdullah. He dismissed Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s claim that PKR was only playing politics with their statements about Barisan MPs ready to cross over to the Pakatan Rakyat.

“At this very moment, there are Barisan MPs in discussion with our leaders in Kuala Lumpur and some have also talked to me,” Ansari told reporters here yesterday. He said that Najib’s claims that PKR statements was just a political gimmick was his own reading, unlike former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who had a better understanding of the political situation in the country. On the issue of DAP chairman Karpal Singh questioning the powers of the Perak Sultan, Ansari said it was impolite to raise the matter.

However, he asked why no action was taken against Umno leaders who questioned the Perlis and Terengganu rulers during the confusion before the appointments of their respective Mentris Besar. “If they want to take action, they should also act against those Umno leaders who publicly voiced their unhappiness over the Rulers’ decisions,” he said, adding that Karpal, who should not have voiced it publicly, was only discussing the powers on points of law - THe STaR ONLiNe

SPeeD RaCeR: FuLL ReVieW...

HANDS up, all those who expected this one to be an assault on the senses - with CGI-heavy visuals and frenetic racing action amped up in trousers-rattling THX that would pound the most seasoned viewer into submission. Hands up, too, all those who figured that nothing short of a double dose of aspirin before the movie would keep a headache away. Or that we’d be (mis)treated to two hours of pod-racing on wheels.

Put your hands down - we (that includes me) figured wrong. Not only did Speed Racer turn out to be a surprisingly painless affair, it further piled on the surprises by ending up a watchable movie with a meaningful story about simple integrity taking on corruption and its complex justifications, and winning. Based on the classic cartoon, the Wachowski Brothers’ take on Speed Racer is a staggering visual buffet, with razzle, dazzle, a chocolate fountain and some of those nice pink peeled shrimp thrown in.

In short - there’s no shortage of eye candy here, with a little extra to keep those with less frivolous tastes from being totally turned off by the madcap pace and cartoony moments. I’d better ‘fess up here and say that I’ve never been a Speed Racer fan but that still didn’t deter me from enjoying the movie for what it is: a big, dumb, carefree, unapologetic tribute to its source that still manages to slip in a few not-so-subtle digs at the alleged fixing and corporate shenanigans that have dogged almost every big spectator sport in recent years. The title character (Hirsch) is an aspiring race driver haunted by the death of his big brother Rex, who died in a dangerous rally after falling in with organized crime.

By winning his first big race, Speed becomes a target for acquisition by corporate sleazeball Royalton (Allam), whose vast empire is built on the very business of fixing races. Naturally, the homespun philosophy of his auto mechanic dad Pops (Goodman) wins out over the allure of luxury and riches, but all Speed does by turning down Royalton’s offer is to turn himself and the whole Racer family into the sport’s pariahs. Enter Racer X (Fox), Inspector Detector (Furmann) and a Royalton business rival (Rain) who offer Speed a way back into the racing game and also a means to bring down the corrupt tycoon. Of course, you can bet your life Speed is going to have to bet his life in the process - he’ll have to enter the very same race that claimed his brother.

For all its zip, Speed Racer clocks in at over two hours, and it really could have benefited from some trimming. Not of the dramatic moments, mind you, but the excessive racing sequences. Contrary to what most of us might pre-suppose, the movie’s off-the-track moments are actually quite engaging and taking a little bit off the central rally and all its overblown set-pieces might have actually helped the film a bit. Come to think of it, the film’s one big liability could well be its wacky race sequences, which are for the most part really hard to follow. Who’s doing that stomach-churning spin? Which team is pounding which team off the track? Where’s Penelope Pit stop and the Ant Hill Mob? Heck, if Speed’s Mach 5 car wasn’t so shiny-white, the hero would just blend into the maelstrom like everything else. Best enjoyed if you can disengage the gears of that constantly-in-motion mind of yours; just strap yourself in and have fun. Go! - Thanks to David Arul (The Star)

P/s: For me, I'd rate it 5 stars out of 5...No words can be described on how they've done the heavy CGI as par as the Transformers visual effect...Go watch it guys!!!

ISTANBUL: Brazilian Felipe Massa swept to a hat-trick of Turkish Grand Prix victories from pole position yesterday with another domineering display for Ferrari at Istanbul Park. The Latin American triumphed by 3.7 seconds ahead of McLaren’s British driver Lewis Hamilton with reigning champion Finn Kimi Raikkonen less than half-a-second behind in third place in the other Ferrari. Hamilton pulled off the overtaking move of the race on Massa and denied Ferrari a likely one-two despite adopting a three-stop fuel strategy compared to his rival’s two-stopper.

But there was no stopping Massa who controlled the 58-lap race on the 5.338km track which he clearly loves. Raikkonen’s lead in the championship was cut to seven points with Massa now second, on countback, from last year’s runner-up Hamilton. Ferrari extended their lead in the Constructors’ championship to 19 points over BMW with McLaren two points further back after Finland’s Heikki Kovalainen paid for an early pit-stop to finish 12th having started second.

The Finn - who suffered a dreadful crash at the Spanish Grand Prix a fortnight ago - suffered an opening lap puncture after a suspected collision with Raikkonen on the opening lap. Poland’s Robert Kubica was fourth for BMW just ahead of team-mate German Nick Heidfeld with Spain’s two-time champion Fernando Alonso sixth for Renault. Red Bull’s Australian Mark Webber was seventh and German-born Nico Rosberg eighth for Williams. There was no points finish for Brazil’s Rubens Barrichello in his record-breaking 257th appearance as he finished 14th for Honda. Massa blasted into lead from the start with all the drama happening behind him as Hamilton powered past his team-mate Kovalainen into second spot. Kubica also overtook Kovalainen in the race for the first corner where the Finn squeezed countryman Raikkonen who dropped from fourth to sixth behind former two-time champion Alonso.

Further down the field, Force India’s Italian veteran Giancarlo Fisichella drove right over the Williams of Kazuki Nakajima, missing the Japanese driver by inches but sending them both spinning into retirement in the gravel after a collision at the start. The safety car was immediately deployed, staying out for one circuit as the debris was cleared. Kovalainen was forced to pit at the end of the second lap while on the third lap Raikkonen easily outpaced Alonso to move back to fourth. Raikkonen took third spot in the first round of pit-stops leapfrogging Kubica as Massa and Hamilton battled it out at the front. Hamilton, on a lighter fuel load, thrillingly snatched the lead on lap 24 when he darted down Massa’s left before forcing his rival to move over as they came up to turn 12 at around 180mph. The British driver’s lead lasted just eight laps before he made another quick pit-stop allowing Massa to regain control of the race. Hamilton regained the lead after Massa, then Raikkonen, made their final stops. Hamilton made a splash-and-sash stop at the end with 13 laps left and although it was not quick enough to deny Massa, he came out just fractions ahead of Raikkonen to snatch second spot from his chief rival. - AFP
