Movie Review: The Guilty

Movie Review: The Guilty

Hej!

Here’s a review from the movie I watched last night.

Asger, the main character, was an emergency call agent (same as 911) in Denmark. Now, let me tell you that I was too a contact center agent long time ago. Picking up random calls 9 to 5; cheering up desperate strangers was not easy when I just got shouted from another stranger for something I didn’t do. It hurts my ears and my heart. But then again, a job needs to be done and I learned how to ignore things.

Now. Asger received a desperate call from a woman who was kidnapped by her own husband (or boyfriend?). The wrong thing I noticed from Asger was he intended solve this case and take it personally instead of asking assistance from his superior or his team. No matter how problem solver you think you are, we all know that was wrong.

A gripping abduction thriller, I found the interesting point from this movie was how the scenes only revolved around the main character in his office; how he listened to all the phone calls he received/made. It was quite predictable until an hour later everything turned 360 degrees.

This is 2018 movie with 99% score from rotten tomatoes and 7.6/10 from imdb. 🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸 out of 5.

Movie Review: Hounds of Love

Movie Review: Hounds of Love

It’s time for me to review a random movie from YouTube again!

A teenager Vicki was kidnapped by a psychopath couple in Perth, Australia. As a smart teenager she did what she could do to survived any harm by the kidnapper: John, a serial killer man who always hunt young girls to rape and killed, and a Evelyn, submissive woman who would do anything to pleased him. Vicki’s parents took the case on themselves when the local policeman just thought it was a usual teenager’s run-away case.

Even though the plot was quite predictable but I found it very touching how the parents – especially Vicki’s mother’s – never gave up looking for her daughter. The mother’s instinct took her very close to where the daughter being kidnapped. It was a very tense scene on the last 10 minutes before the movie ends I couldn’t help crying with the mother.

This is 2016 movie with 88% score from rotten tomatoes and 6.5/10 from imdb. For me this movie deserves 🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸 out of 5.

Food Review: Indomie Salted Egg Instant Noodle

Food Review: Indomie Salted Egg Instant Noodle

This is my very first review for a food, and this is NOT going to make some people happy, but this MIGHT helps you; INDOMIE SALTED EGG INSTANT NOODLE (from Indonesia) is THE WORST instant noodle ever!!!

And you should believe me – because I was born and raised in Indonesia with plenty of instant noodle choices. Some of my favorites are Sarimi Chicken Bawang, Mie Sedap Chicken Broth, Indomie Goreng Barbeque Chicken and Indomie Goreng Rendang. Most of them have standard taste, however they are cheap, easy to make and tasty.

Ok now – go back to this review.

Before I cooked Indomie Salted Egg Instant Noodle, I carefully read some comments and I followed the cooking instruction correctly as follow;

  1. Boil the noodle (half boiled – not overcooked) dry it and put aside
  2. Mix the pasta sauce and chili powder on a clean and dry plate
  3. Put the half-boiled dry noodle to the plate and mix them with mixed sauce (number #2)
  4. Sprinkle the salted egg dry powder on top of the noodle and mix carefully

What’s wrong with this instant noodle? The ingredients have a very strong and distinctive artificial smell – and they didn’t smell like salted egg at all! When I ate it – the chewy noodle was taste right however the artificial ingredients linger on my mouth and throat – they are the worst. I tried to drink coffee immediately to wash away the horrible taste but it didn’t work… I brushed the teeth and gargled still didn’t work. I literally don’t know how to clean this awful taste on my mouth so I decided to write this post to warn everyone.

If you’re a salted egg maniac – the one who enjoy everything from the real salted egg to salted egg crabs to irvin’s, I beg you please do NOT try this instant noodle – it was far worst from all salted egg food you have ever tasted! [ ± _ ± ]

PS: Pak Salim – saya tidak bermaksud menjelek2an produk Anda, akan tetapi seharusnya Anda memiliki standar yang lebih tinggi dari sekedar – perasa telur asin yang dipaksakan – ini! Saya hanyalah seorang pelanggan yang sangat-amat kecewa.

When in Hồ Chí Minh (Biz-Trip Oct’18)

Monday, 15 Oct 2018.

I did some projects follow up to some clients on the previous Thursday and Friday, but I did not expect their rush in expecting us to get to HCMC that fast! So when the clients finally replied my emails on Saturday which I did not go to work and never noticed their emails, only in Monday morning my boss told me that I might need to go to HCMC with him on that night – on the same day.

So off we went that Monday and took the night flight. By the time we arrived in HCMC it was already almost 10PM. I could see our taxi passed by a super tall and colorful building called Landmark 81. But before talking about that charming tall guy, here’s my best shot I took during my short business trip, Bitexco Financial Tower.

What To Prepare Before Going To Tibet

What To Prepare Before Going To Tibet

Like I said on my previous post, before my Tibet holiday I had zero idea about going to highland, what to expect and how serious high altitude sickness could be. Now. After that unforgettable holiday expedition to Tibet, I want to share what to prepare before going to places with higher altitude, based on my personal experience. But before that, to know what altitude sickness is, caused, symptoms, treatments and such, I trust this web. ⊂(´• ω •`⊂)

Fyi, for those who have not read my previous posts, my trip to Tibet was not for hiking. The only tough activity we did was climbing up 432 steps at Potala Palace – it was fun but with that thin air we were all panting like crazy! The rest of the activity we just sat in the bus and walked not too far from where the bus parked. ( ゚o⌒)
