What The Smurf....



The Smurfs.
Not a Review.
Why the Smurf did I go watch this movie?
Oh wait, it was cos UOB BAnk had some CSR project,
And they let a few children s' homes watch it for free.
So yeah, whole cinema full of kids.
Oh well, at least it was a good movie for kids.



Yeah, it's a kid's movie.
Lots of slapstick,
Lots of silly jokes,
Lots of little blue people running around.
And lots of La la lalalalaaaa, lalalalalaaaaa...



ooooh, Smurfs.
I didn't hate them in the cartoon.
In fact I quite liked seeing all the different Smurfs
Here, most of it is a few Smurfs only though.
Mostly Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Brainy, Grouchy...
And a new Scottish Smurf called Gutsy Smurf!
Oh, and Katy Perry as Smurfette.



But at least the beginning got a lot more smurfs.
There's Jokey Smurf, Vanity Smurf,
Greedy Smurf, Farmer Smurf...
Handy Smurf, Baker Smurf, Hefty Smurf...
Even a Narrator Smurf! He was fun.



What's this, TV sitcom movieland?
Got Barney Stinson,
That hot Latino mama from Modern Family,
And that cute chick school counselor from Glee
And the voice of Apu 'Welcome to my store' as Gargamel.
Oh, and Megatron is voicing a cat. Go figure.



Oh, and be careful.
I couldn't get that bloody song out of my head the ENTIRE DAY.
Altogether now!
La la lalalalaaaa,
lalalalalaaaaa...
Come on, you all know the words!
La la lalalalaaaa,
lalalalalaaaaa...

Letting The Inner Toy-Car Bashing Kid in Me Out.



Cars 2.
Not A Review
VROOM VROOM!
KACHAU!
CARS IS BACK!
WHEEEE!



I LOVE Cars.
I don't care what anyone else says.
Cars is awesome.
I have great memories of playing with my toy cars,
Crashing them around,
Taking them on adventures,
Doing stunts,
etc etc etc.
That's probably why I love Cars so much.



This one is completely different from the first one.
The first one was slower,
And was about slowing down and smelling the exhaust.
This one is a SPY movie!
It's got lots of action! Stunts!
And it's got Finn McMissile!
WHEE!!!



Mater is still annoying though,
But he's the kind of annoying I can stand.
Because he's just so innocent and child-like,
Heeheehee.
McQueen isn't that great here,
Mater is the main star.



Finn McMissile is awesome!
He's like James Bond...
If Q had combined James Bond with his car!
All those awesome gadgets!
And it's Michael Caine!
He sounds so 'sophisticated British spy' that it hurts!



Problem is, this is a Pixar movie.
If any other studio had made it other than Pixar,
Then the critics would have loved it.
But Pixar has set the bar so high,
It's not enough to be a GOOD Pixar movie anymore,
You need to be GREAT.
Sigh.



Oh well,
I LIKED IT.
It's very different from the first movie.
In fact, if I were a kid, I'd love this movie more.
The adult in me likes the simple and sweet first one,
The toy car bashing kid in me likes this one more.

Beer Of The Week: Hoppity Hoppity Hopus!



This is one of my favorite beers over at Brux-Ale Belgian Bistro, where they have about 18 other authentic Belgian beers there, three of which are on tap. It's probably one of my favorite places to go for beer, because of the variety and the different types and flavors of beers there.
There is literally a beer for ANYONE at that place.

Hopus is one of the more unique beers at Brux-Ale. It's also the strongest one there, coming in at about 8.3% ABV. And like every beer in the bar, it also has it's own set of glassware, specifically for the beer. Did I say SET of glasses? Yup, this is one special beer, because it comes with TWO glasses for that one bottle of beer - one normal glass, and one shotglass.


What you're supposed to do is to pour the beer into the large glass first, then when there's only like a few centimeters left in the bottle, pour the bottom of the beer into the shot glass. Taht way, you'll get TWO different taste profiles in one beer.

First, take the beer in the shot glass. This part contains the residue yeast at the bottom of the bottle, and so the beer tastes extremely hoppy and bitter. It's a very full-bodied ale, and full of flavour as well. Once you've finished the shotglass, move on to the bigger glass, which is full of nice hoppy yet grassy notes, and despite the strong ABV, it's a surprisingly refreshing beer. Jsut don't drink too much too fast....

You can get Hopus and a lot of other awesome Belgian beers at Brux-Ale (4 Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For reservations, call 03 2287 2628). You can even buy a gift box set that includes the beer, as well as the full set of glassware there!

Beer Of The Week: Go Go Carlsberg Gold!



Most people know the green Carlsberg bottle, but Carlsberg Gold has actually been around for quite some time now. If I'm not mistaken, it's only available in Malaysia right now, but boy, what a gem we have here.

First of all, it's a lot stronger than the usual Carlsberg - about 5.5% ABV. Like its older brother, the beer has hardly any nose to it, but when I tasted it, I could immediately tell the difference between this and the regular Carlsberg.

The green bottle has a certain edge to it that I find to be very distinctive, and while I don't mind drinking it, it's not exactly the first lager I would go for. But Carlsberg Gold is a different matter - it's definitely got a richer, more full-bodied and malty flavor to it, and the hops aren't as apparent here as the regular one. It's also damn bloody refreshing and smooth to drink - I downed my 325ml bottle in less than five minutes.

Definitely one of the best lagers available in Malaysia. I know Shaolintiger can't get enough of it too haha. If only it was available on tap as well, then I would mind actually asking for a Carlsberg.... heh.
