TGI Friday!

Anyone up for western food?

I just went for TGI Friday last Tuesday with a bunch of friends for birthday celebration and year end dinner. It was fun though, despite the food price. hahhaa...but overall, it was alright considering the portion of the food we got. :)

S/W Mac and Chez pasta. RM 23.90

Salmon pasta, RM26.90

Tenesse Chicken, RM29.90. Very yummy, the sauce a bit sweet, but taste just nice with the chicken and the mashed potatoes. I love it!

Tenesse Burger, RM24.90

LA Almond Salad, RM24.90

BBQ Burger, RM21.90

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great as well. It was very relaxing, quiet and just nice for catching up with friends. The staff was friendly and they even chatted with us for a while, some jokes and so on. I would say i will go there again sometimes soon! :)

The Next Three Days

Watched another movie last thursday in TGV KLCC (For RM11, during Wednesday is RM 8). It was "The Next 3 Days" by Paul Haggis staring Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. I would say it was a good show, a successful thrilling movie.

The movie is about a husband, John trying to prove the innocence of his wife, Lara, who was accused of murdering her boss in the movie. He was a community college teacher and he had to raise the son, Luke by himself. After 3 years of trying to appeal and finding evidence to prove Lara's innocence, his efforts were in vain. At the verge of giving up and collapsing, he opted for another way out to get his family together again. So he planned for "kidnapping" his wife from the prison and escaping to another country.

He spent 3 years trying to plan for the escape by studying the prison's routine and trying to find the "key" to the prison that his wife was kept in. But due to sudden notice, John suddenly had 3 days to execute his plan before all his efforts went futile again as his wife was going to be transferred to another prison. So he tried everything he could to bring forward his plan. He tried to get falsified documents and even killed a mafia to get whole load of money for the escape.

In the end, did he succeed? That's for you to find out. :)

Food for thought
From this movie, the part that touched and kept me pondering was the part where John fully believed in his wife that she was innocent even though all the evidences were pointing against her. And he tried everything he could to bring his family back together again, even though that meant going against the law and jeopardizing his career and life.

In the end, true enough, his wife was indeed innocent but the flaw of the law enforcement accused her of an act that she never committed.

Besides, from this movie, John's perseverance and mental strength were vividly presented. He planned and pressed on the plan all by his own. He had no support at all from his friends, nor his family. In the end, he did what he believed was the right thing to do.

Overall, it was a good show, worth a watch in the cinema. :) Go watch it man. hehe...

Lunch @ Klang

It was a public holiday, and one of the assistant CG Leaders suggested to go to Klang for seafood lunch after a short CG in his house in Kemuning.

Of course, we all agreed! nice plan! and as the day came, off we went! :)

We went to the Restaurant Port Village in Klang (I will post up the map in the second post), it's nearby the North Port area. :)

For the moment it's in the transition period for few days, so you will see my blogroll and the followers are gone, soon I will update them all!

As for now, gabriel-utp.blogspot.com is still valid, but please do update your link in your blogs ya!

Have a nice day!

The other guys

Went to watch "The other guys" last night with my friends from UTP.

Before that, there was a cool joke because of the movie title while the friends were calling one another for the movie.

A:"Hey, wanna watch movie with us?"
B:"OK, who else going and what's the movie title?"
A:"The other guys."
B:"I know the other guy is Gabriel, I mean what's the movie title?"
A:"The other guys?"
B:"???!!!! **&$^#&*@".

haha....funny. :) The movie was ok, it's the combination of action and comedy.

However, some of the parts are a bit "coarse" i think, and the whole atmosphere froze because the jokes were quite lame in some ways. Especially the part when the new heroes jumped out from the building and died at the beginning of the movie. I don't quite get the idea though. haha..

Nevertheless, the movie emphasized on in the society, there are people who contributed genuinely and quietly as a good person for the community's good and the public hardly noticed about their existence.

So, yea, maybe next time we should pay less attention to the celebrities heroes but to search and appreciate those who contributed silently. :) "Get out of town!" hehe...
