A Day To Laze Before New Semester.

I have officially done with my industrial training aka internship, which lasted till 31st March. Right at where I am writing this is at VCR, located at Jalan Galloway. It's kinda of authentic with houses on the left and right, while interior was locally furnished and it dim and cozy.


My cup of coffee, a slice of cake and presenting my new baby for the first time.

A lot happened in the last 3 months. Exposed some my experience and work on major accounts that most people would have known without further introduction. Brands I have worked on when I am having the training over at Ogilvy & Mather are BMW, Malaysia Airlines, and Pizza Hut to name a few.

I can find my folio over at Behance where I'm slowly setting it up in the most appropriate way. - https://www.behance.net/23April1994

With no further announcement or thing in my mind, this should end this short post where I have no update here since the last. There should be more exciting stuff, so catch up more close and personal stuff with all my social media platforms below.

Signing off,
Alex

300: Rise of an Empire (IMAX 3D)


different direction, why needs a real poster when I can sketch (poorly) lol

Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.

“300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.


300 was released back in 2006 and 8 years apart, 300: Rise of an Empire made the green screen and CG more stunning. For design based view, I really love how it renders the scenes and the lighting control was amazing to view. I believe this is one of the show I sat tight and enjoy every single one of the frames.

I am not saying this is the best film but it gives amazement to me that I couldn't resist. Maybe I'm dry, on screening attendance.

It is quite a show with the IMAX 3D experience. The little details like the tiny dust flying across the screen makes it a worthwhile 3D viewing trip. Personally I really love the blood scenes. In my opinion, it is better than those fake liquid blood used in most production.

Censorship in Malaysia was not that tight as most gory and bloody scenes are shown. I believe there were only 2 obvious parts that got cut because of the probability of sexual scenes. So yea, you can't see naked women (or Eva Green particularly)!

300: Rise of an Empire will receive 3.5/5 from Aprilfy.

Quick View into Acme Bar & Coffee

Bam, back after 2 months long and the end...

...nah, can't be that short and lame but I had this visit on this place located at one of the most expensive unit in the centre of Kuala Lumpur - The Troika.


It's not Kampachi but Acme Bar & Coffee.

Quick look on my orders, for two pax, and they are
  • Acme Breakfast Club
  • Just Mac & Cheese
  • Sizzling Brownie
  • Jackfruit Cake




    It does looks classy in a way but thing can go slightly overpriced. Taste wise, I bloody love the Just Mac & Cheese with perfect baked on the cheese crust on top of the macaroni. The cake, exceptional kick on the jackfruit but not one that you crave for it constantly. While the fancy brownie, you only need it once.




    Here comes the breakfast, main and desserts.


    A plate of sides you can choose from few choices. From the bread, to the meat.


    This is my awesome bowl/pan or whatever of Just Mac & Cheese

    Moving to the desserts



    We have the signature(?), Jackfruit (or Cempedak in our national language) cake


    Last but not least the fancy presentation of Sizzling Brownie.

    Comic Fiesta 2013 / Day 2

    It is day 2 now. Arrived at 8 as usual, but to the least I can be assured that I don’t have to make a fuss for the pass today. Had breakfast with Abbas (check out my Instagram for what I ate that day, jk I didn’t post it, or did i?).

    So I went to the venue to check out what I didn’t managed to check out.


    Yeap start off my day with some cute stuff again from Happy Smile

It's really awesome to see all of you work with each other to complete the performance.. and by the way.. assassins from Assassin Creed, shouldn’t be able to perform love songs on a guitar.. but yeah.. I'm just saying.
