Mauled By Rottweilers. Why the blame is always on the Dog?

PETALING JAYA: Being mauled by a Rottweiler is enough to kill a person. However, a tractor driver survived an attack by three Rottweilers for about 25 minutes.

Ting Soon Teck, 33, who was bitten all over his body, required 150 stitches and still winces when he recalls the Sept 18 incident.

The father of three had gone fishing with his brother-in-law at a private fishing pond in Taman Orkid Desa that day.

The brother-in-law then complained of a headache and went to their car parked a distance away to take a nap.
‘That’s how I fought them’: Ting showing his injuries at his home in Jalan Kasawari, Puchong, yesterday
“After two hours, I decided to leave with my catch of two fish.

“I called out to the pond owner but five Rottweilers raced towards me instead. Before I knew it, three of them pounced on me and began mauling me.

“I felt pain and could feel their teeth sinking into my flesh although I tried to ward off the attack by punching and kicking the dogs.

“One ripped off the flesh above my ankle before eating it.

“I could even see my bone,” he said at his Jalan Kasawari home in Puchong yesterday.

Ting said he thought he would die and almost gave up hope. “But I just threw punches until my knuckles were bruised and bleeding.”

After about 15 minutes, the fishpond owner's wife, in her 60s, heard his cries for help, rushed over to him and tried to pull the dogs away.

About 10 minutes later, his brother-in-law, who heard the commotion, also helped pull the dogs away and rushed Ting to a private hospital.

“The doctors were taken aback by the extent of my injuries and I was close to death,” he said.
“I was soaking in my own blood.”

A police report was lodged and the pond owner, in his 60s, was arrested.
The pond owner faces a jail term of up to six months, a maximum fine of RM2,000 or both.

“The owners did not obtain a licence to rear the dogs and as such, City Hall has seized the dogs,” Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohan Singh said.

Ting and his wife Yong Su Cheng, 28, felt sympathetic towards the owner and have forgiven him.
“However, I strongly urge the authorities to put the dogs to sleep as they are too dangerous.”

Once again, my heart breaks when I read this news. Another dogs will be put to sleep because of the irresponsible owner. Forgive the owner but put to sleep the dog? Come on!! They are doing what they supposed to do! They are protecting the owner. Do you expect them to come to you, and said "sorry, you are not allowed to go in, please go out." If only they could talk, they would! But, they are dogs. They bark and bite. It's the owner's responsibility to tied the dogs when he/she is not around. It's the owner's responsibility to control their dogs, and not just let them wandering around.

The one who should responsible is the owner, not the dogs. So, please stop asking the authorities to put to sleep the dogs when this kind of case happened. The dogs are not stray, the dogs have an OWNER!

Do you think whenever this things happened and you put the sleep the dogs, the problem solve? The stupid idiotic owner could buy another dogs, exactly like that, and cause another nightmare like this.

If only those dogs could talk...... :'(

Explosion at Empire Shopping Gallery

By the time I opened Facebook this morning, the first news I got from friends' status was the explosion at Empire Shopping Gallery. It happened as early as around 3.30am in the morning, and the explosion was heard from as far away as Bangsar.

Entrance of Subang Jaya from federal highway

The exact explosion was located at the entrance of Subang Jaya from Federal Highway. Four people were hurt in that explosion, and the police has yet determine the cause of the blast but damage is extensive, affecting the parking lot and many outlets on the basement level and even the ground floor. Nearly the entire stretch of the front portion of the newly-built mall was blown out, damaging a number of cafes, restaurants and clothing stores including Tangs and Starbucks Coffee.

Four people who injured are two Nepalese security guards and a couple. They received minor scrapes and bruises. 

The moment I recalled Empire Shopping Gallery, what first crossed in my mind was there's a pet shop. Thank God the animals there are alright. I'm sure they must be very shock, and barked loudly at the moment. One of my Facebook friend who live nearby said that her dog kept barking for whole night because of that explosion. 
Some of the dogs who has been rescued from the location 
Hope the police could investigate this incident soon, and the mall could operate as normal again. Well, obviously they should be more careful so this incident won't happened again. 

Dream House (2011)

Synopsis from Wikipedia: 
Successful publisher Will Atenton (Daniel Craig) quits a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Rachel Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the scene of the murder of a mother and her children, while the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband, who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Patterson (Naomi Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will's dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.

Special thanks to the lovely and pretty Nuffie, Anne Cheah for her call. She called me in the afternoon just to inform me that I've been invited to the screening =)

At the beginning, I felt like watching the old version of Shutter Island, I kept guessing and guessing, but then at the end, the reason for the killer to kill the family is kinda ridiculous.  Oh well, sometimes in real life, we also do some stupid mistake right? 

Do you want a spoiler? The movie won't be that anxious if you've known who's the killer and why he/she did it, but I did give you the clue (if only you watched Shutter Island before). 

Overall, I enjoyed the movie, it's not bad at all, and please don't judge it from the cover. It's not a horror movie (I thought it was, as I never watched the trailer nor read the synopsis). 
So, here's special trailer for you, guys ^^ 

Enjoy the movie, okay =)

Warrior (2011)

Special thanks to ChurpChurp  for the screening tickets.

Synopsis (from IMDb):

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan's unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.

At first few minutes, the movie looks kinda boring, few people walked out from the hall, while I kept telling myself to stay because Tom Hardy is so damn hawwtt.. ! It's not so boring if there's subtitle on the show, I think. 

What you will see is not completely about violence, punching, kicking, or killing. It's more about family relationship. It's kinda touching, though, and the ending is just awesome. 

Here's a trailer for your reference:

Enjoy the show :)

Johnny English Reborn (2011)

Been waiting for this movie for few months, and thanks to NuffnangMY and ChurpChurp I could watch this funny movie few days before it's on screen.

Official Synopsis:
Rowan Atkinson returns to the role of the accidental secret agent who doesn’t know fear or danger in the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn. In his latest adventure, the most unlikely intelligence officer in Her Majesty’s Secret Service must stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos. In the years since MI7′s top spy vanished off the grid, he has been honing his unique skills in a remote region of Asia. But when his agency superiors learn of an attempt against the Chinese premier’s life, they must hunt down the highly unorthodox agent. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English is back in action.

If you're a big fans of Mr. Bean, you have to watch this. It's like Mr. Bean's movie in Bond's suit. The story line is quite simple, and we will feel annoyance because he's too naive, yet act like he knows everything. Typical Mr. Bean, huh?! :p

If you're feeling down, upset, sad, or angry, go and watch this movie. It will make you laugh till you forget what's happened in your life before :)

Enjoy the show.

Apollo 18 (2011) Movie Review


Decades-old found footage from NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon.

That's it? Yes, at simple as the synopsis. The movie is too simple for me, and don't even dare to compare it with Apollo 13. 

My friend asked me to watch this movie, and thanks to NuffnangMY for the screening tickets, I didn't have to spend my money for this movie. I have to give a note to myself to never watch a footage movie anymore, or... at least watch the trailer before heading to cinema =)

Enjoy the movie ^^

Bridesmaids (2011)

Special thanks to ChurpChurp for the invitation to attend the premiere screening of Bridesmaid before it's officially released on 8 September 2011.

Move out boys, it's girls time =) yes, it is because Bridesmaids is a story about what girls are doing when one of their besties gonna has a wedding!


Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.

Annie’s life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.
From Universal Pictures

For some people, this movie is kinda out-to-date, and also a little bit boring, but not for me. I love simplicity and story about things that kinda make sense and does happend in our real life. What happend to Annie, Lilian, Hellen and the rest of the them might also happening in our life.

But, to be honest, to find a guy like Nathan Rodhes is a bit hard. :p For some people, they might say "you just didn't realise it." or "open your heart, there's plenty good guy out there!" or "that's because you don't want to look around with your heart, you only look the one you like."

That's so not true! I've looked around and confirmed that there's no man like Nathan Rodhes. :) Watch the movie and you will know what kind of man he is.

PS: Do you want to be invited to any other movie screening? Join ChurpChurp and follow them on twitter @Churp2.

Ice Kacang & Cendol Malacca

Where could you find the delicious ice kacang? Obviously not in KL.

A friend of mine told me it's in Lumut, but that's way too far! So, I decided to fulfil my craving at Malacca.

Actually, Malacca is well-known for Ice Cendol. There's nowhere to find soft texture cendol except Malacca. Apparently, their Ice Kacang is not bad as well. It's worth to drive for around 1.5 hours for these delicate dessert :)

Gues what I found at the Jonker street?

Very big peanut!! I used to eat this during my childhood, and how I wish they could sell this in Cinemas instead of popcorn. Lol!

Mission almost accomplished! Just one more thing to complete my 'craving of the day'. =)

Malacca Chicken Rice Ball

The famous, can say trade mark of Malacca, chicken rice ball. If you come here during weekend or public holiday, be prepared to queue. There are many shops, just choose which one has a short queue.

After waiting for around 20minutes, we got our seat and the food was served pretty fast!

Reco Wong told me that long long time ago, the rice ball was small compare to now. I prefer normal rice to eat with the chicken. Some of you might say, "go nearest chicken rice shop only then!" but seriously, the chicken here has a special taste that you couldn't find in other places.
