Avatar kora

The new avatar has arrived. We all really love the old avatar the last air bender. In our opinion it's one of the best series ever with its very detailed and researched story telling. Let's hope the legacy continues with this one.

We watched the first episode and instantly we can relate to its characters. One character that stands out to us is Meelo who realllllllyyyy resembles Zareef in so many ways. Physical and personality.

Be the leaf!!

Wives love those small gestures

I was rushing to work this morning but was just able to squeeze in making coffee. Tried a new artsy stuff, didnt turn up too well but glad to see the wife appreciates it. She posted the pic in fb before i knew it. The only downer was that i wasnt there to see her reaction but instead freezing waiting for the train @ 6am.

Gold coast adventure

Gold coast... The name itself sounds spectacular. But apologies to the kids... There were no gold or pirate treasure as expected. Zara keeps pronouncing it as roller coast just cause of the association of the place with theme parks.

So the adventure began when we all met up. Zazamazu, gel, Eza, Shahrul and Wafi. Meeting each other was exciting enough what more in beautiful gold coast. The only thing that dampen the adventure was the first day downpour. Wet t-shirt contest was won by Shahrul.

We went to all the major theme parks, beaches and some food places. With the rides, we made sure everybody had a chance to go on whatever they wanted to... Or not wanted to (Zara didn't enjoy her rides - but she can produce a very cute yell). Zareef on the other hand had a blast. Always talking it up but stayed real quiet when the action was happening. But have to give it to him for being brave and made it more enjoyable especially with his trademark " r u scareeeeddd?" remarks. Unfortunately he did cry once when we made fun of him when we were still turning and dropping.

Maz had heaps of fun too. Being an adrenaline junkie she laughed at the challenge. Literally.... Out of terror or amusement that is yett to be determined. I on the other hand loved it. But my cryptonite was all the spinning... Causes me headaches especially when it's hot and being hydrated. $4.50 for a drink doesn't help either.

Shahrul and Wafi after the trip are kings of roller coaster. I think Shahrul had the most rides on Buzz Saw (our fav) of the day = 5 times. His motto, ull never walk alone(Liverpool habis).. So every time one of us wants to go on anything he will be on it. Wafi also had a few goes. The funny thing about Wafi is that he is really quiet when the action happens. So we still don't know what goes on In His head. And we dare not to figure that out. Best part is we always looked for the camera and go stupid poses. It's worth it cause Wafi is collecting them.

Gel and Eza was not bad. Eza is always up to it which made it cooler. No fear baby. Gel too. But sometimes gel closes his eyes. Either meditating or layan habis ahh tu. But I always love the way gel describes the ride. With full of expression makes it sound so cool.

Some of the highlights worth mentioning:-

Wafi has a cat named yoko... Which he used as a pickup line when chatting up 4 japanese girls.. 18 years have I known him and never once he mention anything about a cat. Next time I'll dress up as a Japanese cutie and will learn more about my buddy.

Maz sangkut loop ride at wet and wild... Either not enough weight or too much friction.... She reckons its the former. I beg to differ

Yellow jets and the claw that conquered me... Went on the yellow thing with Zara. She was scared crying and the seat belts were loose on her. So I kinda panicked and awkwardly tried to hold Zara while losing my bearings. Felt like nearly lost zara through the cage and the ride went on forever... After all that all I wanted is to puke.. But I was alone taking care of the kids... Ended up hiding in the air con arcade while the kids play. Oh yeah... Zara acted like nothing happen afterwards.

Shahrul birthday dinner. We had it at outback jack. Pure Aussie baby... Everybody loved it. Everything about it. Shahrul nearly finished the challenge while Wafi had a pathetic effort (not my words but the waitress). Layannn babe.. One of those dinners that we will never forget

Seeing my Big mates in a small Nissan micra. Just like the circus clowns stuffed in a small car. We had a really nice falcon and till now Zara reckons we should buy it just because the radio can sync with our iPhones and play her tunes effortlessly.

There's more stories but I reckon I mention enough without embarrassing ourselves too much... Till later...

Fav hero - Batman

Ever since I was a boy, I have always favored batman over other superheroes. I love the fact that he is a bad mother $&@$& despite his lack of powers. He has the mystery aspect and kick ass villains to make it more attracting to all aged viewers. And in some funny way I chose to become an engineer for what the stories tell of batman and his dad. So when we saw batman @ movie world I think I was more excited than all the other kids.

So here's to Batman the Dark Knight and may he continue to inspire ppl around the world.

Ape da nak complain barca

Morinho once said: there are coaches who criticizes ref for making mistakes, I'm one of the and there are coaches who does not complaint. But Pep (barca) belongs to another group where criticizes ref for making the right decisions......

These words were uttered a few months back and what happen last weekend was another example of Barca antics. Some of dialogue that occurred

"If he blows for a foul, with Pique the last man, it can be a sending off," said Guardiola. "But I would not be in this line of work if I thought that someone would decide in advance to harm us. Life sets you tests and you have to overcome them. A sending off? Win with ten. An injury for Alexis? Win with nine."

The Spanish international later voiced his disagreement, saying: "At half-time I told the referee it was a penalty on Keita and he kept that [in his head], I have a feeling of premeditation."

U judge it urself from the clip below. If ur the last man tackling and didn't get the ball In most book it's a red card. Dunno what rule barca is reading
