The Incredible Hulk Trailer

I am actually not a big fan of Hulk comic but i do like the 80s drama series.
Was pretty contented with the Ang Lee (humane & emotionally hulk) version, anyway since we are getting hit with several superheroes movies this summer, will definitely catch this as well.

books i read > Cai Lan: The Market Symphony

Cai Lan > The Market Symphony is actually my own interpretation from the mandarin title. I think it sound better than "Cai Lan goes market shopping" :P

I really hate Cai Lan, really!! (nah, just joking), He's paid to enjoy his work!!!
He actually write about food, chefs and people daily lifes that he encounter around the world.
The book actually felt like he's blogging, but he's paid (alot of $$$) to do it...damn~~i hate to blog!!

Qing Ming Festival (清明节)
This 9am morning, we went for the tomb sweeping festival.
Actually its a week early than the actual ceremony scheduled by the temple. However, previous past experiences teaches us to had it early rather than actual day (its always crowded).

Appleseed Ex Machina DVD out now in Singapore

Out in 14th March 2008, my brother bought it from Gramaphone for SGD$24.90.
Overall the show is fantastic as promised, it delivered excellent action sequence, animation and entertainment (not boring at all). The English voice-overs was also a credit, it's more lively and humorous than the original japanese voices.

The bonus disc is real bored though, not much of making or how the production achieve the animation but a bunch of (crap) review on how they perceive japan anime and it's influence's in US. Quite disappointing on the special feature, heard that the HD or Blu-ray version has the same features as well, so guess i will be contented with the dvd version for now.

DVD Cover (nothing unique, in fact it looks like a bootleg cover)
For a 2-disc limited edition and the premium price we are paying for a original dvd, the distributor/ printing dept should hang themselves.

Appleseed Ex Machina Rocks!!~~

It's been a long time I've ever enjoyed an anime ACTION movie.
Can't wait for the original dvd to be release.
You will definitely recognize a few familiar action sequence, that's because it's produced by John Woo!! hahaha :)
Hopefully, EVA:01 which is showing in Cathay cinemas this month is as good as this!! (not boring)

Notice for vinyl designer toys collectors~~!!

Dinner at BENTENDO (Great World City)

This evening, we went to great world city for dinner.
We decided to go ahead with Bentendo, Japanese pasta & cafe, whom a friend recommends and it was featured in an article.

Open Kitchen Concept

The Menu (only 4-5 pages)

page 1 - Japaneses Style

page 2 & 3 - Tomato & White Sauce

page 4 - Garlic Sauce, last page is salads & soup

My wife ordered the Short-neck Clam & Mushroom with Spaghetti in soup

XMM had Bacon & Eggplant with Spaghetti in soup

i ordered Fresh Salmon & Salmon Roe in butter & soy sauce

Overall rating 2/5, the dishes were a bit salty to my liking, maybe it's due to the miso added for Japaneses style spaghetti. Do not expect too much from the menu as well. This restaurant basically just serve spaghetti, that's it. It's good for couples or small group. Not recommended for family with kids as there's no kid's meal. Price starts from est. $12.80 onwards.
