Plants Vs Zombies 2 Available on iOS and Android Now!

YEAH.. Plants Vs Zombies 2 hits town finally. I have always been a fan of Plant vs Zombies (PvZ), my WHOLE FAMILY plays PvZ. This game is truly a game for all.

I happened to download PvZ 2 on my iPhone (without realising it wasn't released on Android yet). I even asked my friends to download and play, unfortunately, they told me they can't search it. Then, I realised that I had the privilege to explore this game first before them! 

(To set the record straight, I'm really bad at games. When I say bad, it means REALLY BAD). 

So, I'm dedicating this blogpost to all PvZ lovers (especially my friend, Koko), an introduction about PvZ 2 In Plants Vs Zombie 2, we were teleported to the ancient world of Zombgypt (Zombie + Egypt).  We have to pass every stage, in order to unlock new plants.

Occassionally, there's a locked path, and some stages have to be repeated in order to fight Yeti Zombie or to obtain the keys to unlock the route. In every stage, to obtain a star, you need to fulfil the requirement. Hence, adding a little difficulty in PvZ 2 compare to the older version. In PvZ, every stage is almost similar except for the different terrains and monsters.

Like the old times, Crazy Dave is still crazy! He's so crazy that I'm suspecting he could be my biological father. LOL! jk -.-

Plants available are also very similar with the older version. As I had just started playing, I only have a handful of plants to defeat the zombies.

Although the maps are as complicated as spiderwebs, the added comedic feature such as the look of the zomb-sphinx ( zombie + sphinx) is funny!

I really love the little details of fun in this game. Here's a PyraHouse (pyramid + house).

Performance wise, this game has been running smoothly on my iPhone 5. So far no problem such as lagging, hang, or crash. 

If I'm not mistaken, the Android version is out now! Check it out here.  Hope that everyone will enjoy the game as much as I do.

WATERMELON SMASH!!!! *jiuuuuuuu*

Complain To MPSJ

Yesterday, I almost met with an accident. And as I was about to sleep, I witnessed an accident through my windows. I've decided do my part as a community member, and lodge a complain to MPSJ about the road conditions around my neighbourhood.

My area has been experiencing streetlamps blackouts since the machines have been placed there. Coincidentally or not, I don't know. But in Malaysia, even brightly lit areas can be a hotspot for crimes to happen, what more a darkened street like this. I pity those pedestrians that have to use this road to walk home, as the bus stops along the main road. I pity those car owners who have to park outside and walk home in such a dark conditions.

The only occassional lights that we have for this 2 weeks was from passing vehicles. To make matters worse, the junction was blocked by machines (both sides: left and right hand of junction). The machines are left there, unattended for at least 1 week already. 

The barricades makes drivers almost impossible to spot incoming car, when they want to turn right? The little space for vehicles to stop, before turning into the junction was taken up by the machines and barricade, and incoming cars will STOP RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE (the gap/mouth) of the junction. This is totally unpredictable because outgoing car, will not expect incoming cars (can't see their signals due to the barricade) to SUDDENLY STOP at the narrow entrance/exit gap!

I have experienced this before, yesterday, I wanted to turn right, I looked left, right, ok clear, as I stepped on my pedal, suddenly a kelisa stopped right at the junction, blocking my way! I couldnt blame her, as she cant see me, and I cant see her. After all, she has no space to stop, as the machines and barricade took a large space at the shoulder of her side of road.

I have never opposed any development or road upgrading works. But I have been very vocal in voicing out dissatisfaction on poor work planning. The execution of works and traffic planning to make way for LRT construction was very poorly executed. A portion of the road were taken up, without leaving residents alternatives or new routes to exit the particular area, especially during peak hours. 

I sincerely hope that there will be no more accidents to happen in my neighbourhood again.

hoping of MPSJ to take action.

**Facts & Figures about Oktoberfest**

1.   This celebration initially started as wedding celebration in 1810 to commemorate the union between Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen at Theresienwiese (translated as Therese's meadow / field) – it is for this reason that Oktoberfest is referred to by Germans as ‘die Wiesn’ or ‘the field’
2.   Through the years, Oktoberfest celebrations have had a number of different elements and activities, including horse races, street parades (in traditional costumes), live music, dancing and of course the appreciation of authentic Munich-brewed beer.
3.   Currently, Oktoberfest is a truly global celebration with almost 7 million visitors consuming over 7 million litres of beer and more than half a million chickens throughout the celebration (based on 2011 figures), which lasts between 16 – 18 days from the middle of September to the first Sunday of October.
4.   For 2013, the Oktoberfest festival proper will run from 21 September 2013 to October 6 2013 – a total of 16 days of culture, cuisine and beers

What Makes An Oktoberfest Beer?

1.   All Oktoberfest beers must be brewed within the city limits of Munich and must also conform to the Reinheitsgebot or Bavarian Purity Law which strictly governs the production of beer in Germany by limiting the ingredients that can be used
2.   All Oktoberfest beers are approximately 13% proof (about 6% alcohol), meaning they are a little bit stronger than their “non-Oktoberfest” variants

An Introduction to Paulaner

Paulaner, the no. 1 German wheat beer, is part of Guinness Anchor Berhad’s brand portfolio

1.   Paulaner was first brewed by monks from the Paulaner monastery in 1634 making it almost 380 years old – however it is still the “youngest” of the Oktoberfest Beers
2.   Unlike the rest of the Paulaner range, Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier is not a wheat beer but instead a lager.
3.   Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier, like all Oktoberfest beers are approximately 13% proof (about 6% alcohol), meaning they are a little bit stronger than their “non-Oktoberfest” variants
4.   At the Oktoberfest celebration, each Oktoberfest beer operates a number of tents which provide different drinking experiences. Paulaner is famous for three widely popular tents, namely: -
       Armbrustschützenzelt ‘Armbrust’ means crossbow and this tent certainly lives up to its name with a crossbow shooting range available for more than 110 years
       Käfer’s Wies’n-Schänke – this is a smaller tent that gets VIP visitors from all over the world and serves signature gourmet food such as “Käfer-Duck” and a roast saddle of venison.
       Winzerer Fähndl – This tent is also popular amongst VIPs due to its attention to detail, celebrated oompah band called “Nockherberger” and iconic tower with a giant mug of Paulaner sitting atop it

The facts and figures don’t matter at all. Just have a sip of Octoberfest beer and enjoy the celebration. Let the party begins! WoooHoooo!!!!

One More Day!

The excitement kicks in,
Anxiety brewing,
And a whole lot of mess tangling in my mind right now.

Wiseman used to say, to know what happiness is, you have to first experience suffer. Well, for once, i have to agree with this. Nothing is perfect in life, and when it comes to wedding preparation, every little details are important. Matters relating to traditions, customs, superstitious beliefs of two families have to be handled with utmost care. (I have to admit i did fail in this section). 

Dream weddings seems so near, yet so hard to achieve with so many people, factors and situation to deal with. Nonetheless, me and Jian braved through all those moments and now, we are ready to tie the knot!

Tomorrow will be our wedding reception in Melaka@ Royal China Grand Ballroom, Melaka. Can't wait!!!
