The Emperor's New Hairstyle

Today marked the end of my old (dark brown) hairstyle !!

I had this feeling to make a change in my color and the design of my current hair-style, so I "ordered" M to make an appointment with my hairstyle designer.

Since I am labelled as [The Legendary Emperor] in this blog, I should have a "signature" hairstyle which best uphold of this honorable blog title.

Therefore, I went to the salon today straight after school, without doing much of window-shopping today. Although I made an appointment with my hairstyle designer at 2 pm, but it was better be early than late ~ I don't know why I was so excited over a hair-cut this time !!

After 3 hours of coloring, treatment and etc to my dark-browned hair, I returned home to let M to see the result. I was mentally prepared to be scolded by her as she did not like such coloring ~ as she did mention to us to whoever colored their hair in such color, were going to answer her scissors a few years back. However, surprisingly, when I opened the door, she praised my new hairstyle and even called my designer for a job well-done. 

~ LOL ~

Here are the pictures that I took myself (9 shots):

I decided to use some of the random pictures above to replace my profile picture. Not to mention, this was also my 1st time to see M in such a good mood today. I think I'll continue to keep this kind of hairstyle till I feel bored about the color, haha !! ~

GARO: Blue Cries of the Demon Dragon

When I was surfing Facebook the other day, I came across JEFusion's Facebook page and accessed to their website

I found this movie trailer quite interesting due to its beautiful cut-scenes.

I watched it over and over - not that I did not understand. It's just that the content inside the video is awesome and "powerful". Thus, it attracted me to search deeper about its story. From what I researched so far, I only know that it's going to be officially released on February, 2013. If this is going to be released in Singapore, it would most likely on the month of May / June or even later.

Here is one screenshot that I took from the video ~ looks quite cool to become this blog entry's cover sharing purpose:

Main character of the movie: Kouga

Official Facebook Page


I was surprised to find out from their about tab of their page. They created the page since 2005 - which means within this 7 years of film-making and marketing on this movie, is not attractive ~ seeing the current fan amount !!

Official Twitter Account


Official Website of the movie


Homepage of the website

The story of the movie

Casts from the movie

My overall opinion about this movie

Personally, I'm not quite looking forward for this movie because there's too many CG scenes and special effects involved in this movie. Although it's nice to have these effects added into the element of this kind of fantasy movie, but it would be better if the characters are made into anime characters (2D) or 3D animated models. And as such, the movie will seem to be kind of "fake" if 99% of the movie is made up of special effects.

Likewise, for people who like to see action-oriented movies involved with special effects, then this movie will be most suitable as I think its graphics and sound are top-notch after watching the trailer myself. Moreover, if it's the first release, it might come out in cinema as 3D movie. Due to this addition, this will help to improve the movie experience of 3D into another level. 


The reason of why I created this blog entry is not to boast about this movie, but to foretell the future of the current movie industry might evolve to. More of such movies are going into digital media, comes to a point that people would fall on beautiful graphics and music on movies, rather than creative story-line and twisted endings ~ as most movies nowadays failed to do so. 

It is further lead to a certain extent that only movies with special effects will help to cover-up the loopholes of their uninteresting stories and expected endings. Thus, it gives the audience a wrong concept that only movies with special effects would guarantee a success. Therefore, it makes the traditional movies with no special effects (mostly depending on acting skills and emotional experience) unable to transfer its original purpose and message to the society. 

Most of the time, it will cause more confusion to the audience who cannot think even deeper about the ending of the story and asked their friends and families about the meaning behind it. Because of this, people try to avoid such movies and spread the news out, saying how lousy and uninteresting, but actually they were not.

In conclusion, I think it would be good if people can watch such movies and maybe there are some valuable information they gain in the end. There might be a  slight / slim chance to let people to try out movies with no special effects once in a while.

[How to] Video Presentation

This incident happened during my October holiday when I was looking for a part-time job as I'm going to start school on 15 Oct. I surfed Facebook and found out that a local music company, Hark Music was looking for a candidate for the job position as student care executive (part time).

Just because I didn't go for the interview as they stated (because they sent me the email on the interview day). How am I get myself prepare in a few hours time ?? So, I found myself an excuse to "reject". [1st mistake I made]

So, I received this email above that I need to do a video presentation before I went for interview. [I would've gone for the interview instead !!]

This is the 1st video presentation that I made to the company.
However, I didn't get to be recruited due to some mistakes I made in this video.

After realizing that I stand no chance for the interview, I came out this list of tips to inform any students out there who want to look for a job and want to study at the same time.

Tips on how to do a good video presentation:

~ Tip 01: Don't declare yourself that you're a student ~

If you're a full-time student like myself, don't EVER tell the truth to your interviewees. If you really want to say out your current status, best to "cover" yourself with these examples below.

 "I'm unemployed"
"I was being fired by this XXX companies because ... ...."
"I was just graduated from XXX secondary school"

~ Tip 02: Don't be nervous ~

If you're very nervous in front of a camera, pretend the camera as in your mirror OR prepare a script and do a voice-recording 1st and later on sync the voice-over to your cam. (it's a bit troublesome this way)

~ Tip 03: Try to say as much as you can about yourself ~

Given the time limit, try to say as much as you can about yourself. Don't limit yourself to things that your company like, cos they want to know more about you in your leisure.

Even if you mention things that you think is not so appropriate - for example: gaming stuff - you'll think that your interviewees will think of you playful or not serious. However, you should talk more on it. Because only the things you like to talk about proves that you like the job as well as your hobbies.

~ Conclusion ~

As for things such as your working experience and job skills are least important ones, because they can see it from your resumes. The purpose of making video presentation is to make your employer to see how confident can you be in front of the camera, before they saw you in real person during the interview.

[Sponsored] Domino's Pizza

This is my 1st food review that I made for Domino's Pizza.

In the previous blog entry, I wrote about how I forgot to bring my house-keys and delayed the duration of producing this blog entry.

If you've not read the last blog entry I wrote, please click here.

Anyway, when I reached the Domino's Pizza, I thought I was late (7:05 pm) ~ cos I never go to Kovan and nearly lost my way there. Luckily, I had my iPad with me and able to locate the directions easily.

When I entered into the entrance of the restaurant, I saw the place was quite "empty".

Without thinking much, I approached the counter registration and was placed to sit with a table of 8 girls. Only then I realized that there were so many female bloggers participating this event organised by omy club.

At first, I was quite nervous about it and only knew to use my iPad and created this tweet.

In a latter period near 7:30 pm, I tried to mix with one of the female blogger and made managable conversation. During the process, a male blogger appeared just in time to "unfreeze" the situation. So, we exchanged our blog URLs with each other while waiting for the event to start.

Then, the Operation Manager of Domino's Pizza of Singapore, Mr. Keith Brown introduced himself to us and gave us a brief history lesson of the restaurant and their newly-launched products.

He then took out a small bowl of their chilly sauce (secret recipe) and wanted us to try out, in case some of us cannot take the heat.

Their chilly sauce was yummy and sweet. 

I tasted the first spoon for testing and another for fun.. :-P

After the lesson conducted by Mr. Keith Brown, we stood up and going to take tons of pictures on the sampled pizzas and other displays with our camera.

~ Traditional Sambal Pizza ~

Here are the ingredients contain in this pizza:
Shredded Chicken
Fresh Onions
Red and Green Peppers 
New and Authentic Sambal Sauce 

~ Tropical Sambal Prawn Pizza ~

Here are the ingredients contain in this pizza:
Succulent Prawns marinated in herbs & spices
Fresh Onions
Juicy Pineapples
Red Pepper
New and Authentic Sambal Sauce 

~ Sambal Veggie ~

Here are the ingredients contain in this pizza:
Fresh Mushrooms
Green Peppers
Ripe Olivers
Cherry Tomatoes
New and Authentic Sambal Sauce 


~ Sambal Surf & Turf ~

Here are the ingrendients contain in this pizza:
Succulent Prawns marinated in herbs & spices
Shredded Chicken
Juicy Pineapples
Green Peppers
New and Authentic Sambal Sauce 

From all the 4 new pizzas that Domino's Pizza has launched, I had tasted all and in my personal opinion, it was the Traditional Sambal and Sambal Surf & Turf were my favorite as I like spicy food - the more spicy it is, the more tastier can it be. An info that I got from Mr. Keith Brown was that, spicy pizzas' taste will not be liked or not liked, depending on how many people like spicy foods. And since, most Singaporeans like spicy foods, that also equally means that Domino's Pizza is trying their best to suit and fit in the culture of Singaporeans' taste bud - even though they comes from USA.

Next, we got to see all the side dishes as listed below:

 Galic Cheese Onion Rings
Crazy Chicken Crunchies (Original & Tom Yam)
Golden Roasted Drummets

Here are the cakes and desserts that Domino's Pizza can offer to their pizza-lovers:

[Chocolate Lava Cake]

[Caramel Sticky Dessert]
 All the side dishes of food and desserts are contained using the display boxes pictured below.

Out of so many side-dishes and cakes, I would definitely recommend this cake instead: Chocolate Lava Cake. Becos this is the only side dish that made me think that the cake should be cold. But, when I tasted it, it was warm instead - give me a shock of temperature in different ~ haha !!

Here is the excitement and enjoyable moment that I had with the cake !!

In my personal opinion, the cake is tasted with a sense of gloomy; a heart-felt warmth and love at first sight feeling that will attract the chocolate lovers to fall in love with this cake <3

I can't really rate all the food in Domino's Pizza, according to my personal taste. Becos different people have their own unique taste buds, so it's not so easy to make a rating scale to the public since I'm not a professional food blogger. 

My personal rating to each of the pizza:

Traditional Sambal: 4 / 5
Sambal Surf & Turf: 4 / 5
Sambal Veggie: 3.5 / 5
Tropical Sambal Prawn: 3.5 / 5

My personal rating to each side dishes, cakes & desserts:

 Galic Cheese Onion Rings: 3 / 5
Crazy Chicken Crunchies (Original): 3.5 / 5
Crazy Chicken Crunchies (Tom Yam): 4 / 5
Golden Roasted Drummets: 3.5 / 5
Chocolate Lava Cake: 4.5 / 5
Caramel Sticky Dessert: 4 / 5

[PS: The above rating are go according to my own taste experience.]

After all the food-tasting session, I decided to take some pictures around the restaurant to make an effort to "decorate" this blog entry.

I took a picture with the standing post of Domino's Pizza :-)

Just in case, you can't see the QR  code below the poster - but it still looks small ~
LOL !!

I took a picture with Mr. Keith Brown !! :-D

Peace :-P

We took a group picture together with Mr. Keith Brown and the admins of omy club.

It was an enjoyable experience cos I'm able to meet all the new bloggers - even though we're all first time visiting Domino's Pizza and I had never attend such a bloggers group-kind of event organised by the company. I hope I can attend such events again by omy club in the near future.

Forgot to bring house-keys !!

After the event "Domino's Pizza" that I went tonight, it was around 9pm+.

When I reached home, it's already 10pm+.

After trying to open the door, then I realized that I forgot to bring the keys out.

Normally, people don't really matter if their house-keys got bring out or not ~ cos nothing worse will happen to them as there will be some-one helps to open the door for them.

But, for my house "tradition", no one will open it. So, everyone in my family will bring out their indivdual house-key no matter what. Cos, if you're waiting them to open the door, then you'll have to call them through your mobile phone and then they will answer to U..

Actually, when I was in Bus 190, I was already knew that I didn't bring out the keys. However, to think in a positive side that my friend told me in Twitter, I totally forgot about this and forgot to call my family members about it before I reached home tonight.

Here are the tweets that I interacted with my friends earlier today.

Anyway, when I reached home just now, I planned to do a blog entry draft on Domino's Pizza that I went tonight initially  But, I guess the plan had just been delayed since I'm writing this blog entry now. Becos I called to my mother's mobile (around 17 times), she didn't respond at all. Unluckily, I reluctantly to use my iPad to kill the time instead while waiting them to come back to help me opening the door.

So, I took a picture of myself and uploaded to my twitter to show my friend (damn bo liao)
~ LOL ~

While waiting, I also uploaded these 2 keeks.

[Sitting outside my house ~ haizzz !!]

[Domino's Pizza]

To continue from what I left out in the 2nd keek (cos interrupted by the lift sound and it will be weird to talk to iPad when my neighbor came out from the lift and opened the door), I'm supposed to write a blog entry about Domino's Pizza - 4 new products and food tasting review.
[Btw, I pronounce wrongly in the keek: it should be "pizza", not plaza !! xD]

Becos of this small incident that delayed me to write the food review draft blog entry, therefore I think I will write it on tmw night or on Friday night.

Consider this blog entry as a preview for the upcoming blog entry: 

Stay tune and Good night to all :-)
[PS: I'm sorry for not writing a new blog entry since Oct 31 ..]
