Rising super baby model, Dennis

He's a rising model, a really cool and cute dude that stole the million of hearts from the girls all over the world and BOYS! He's not David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Justin...Bieber? Nope, no, NOOOO!! But he's one big phenomenon in the modeling industry, he's......Dennis!

Dennis, the cute little stuff!!

Dennis is a baby model, he's only 4 to 5 years old....but he ald got tons of company grabbing him and get him to be their clothing line's ambassador and model. He's been on few magazine cover. WHAT!? Yes, magazine cover! The things is that he's real cute and cool! He's the major model for Tom's morning and Babyfactory.

Look at him! Wonder how many girls killed by his cuteness (I'm one...).

He has this really beautiful eyes and brownish hair thanks to the inheritance of gene from his Korean and Austrian mom and dad. And the smile! Dennis mainly modeling for clothing and fashion line. But I bet one day, my goodness, when he grown up.....I dare not imagine till that far because now he's one super cute killing machine ald.

The pose and outfit, awwww....CUTE!!

Super cool Dennis!

Natural shot.

I think most of his posing and modeling is quite natural. He's really potential and I hope and wish the best for him! I mean 5 years old, what the heck I'm doing when I'm 5 years old!!? I love this kid a lot....wonder what's his mother tongue?

(PS : Another killing machine is generated. Sigh, the world is changing. )

Sushi Zanmai, simply sushi craving.

I seem to crave for Japanese cuisine a lot lately. Just because Sushi is something that satisfy me as a food and art at the same time, "Sushi is artistic" quoted from Banny, me myself! And when it comes to Japanese cuisine, Sushi King is no longer in the league. Sushi Zanmai is the newcomer into my list, although I still put Sushi Tei as first choice!

I've been to Zanmai few times, the price is slightly "affordable" than Sushi Tei and I love their sushi sooooo much compared to those Don Don Don, Ramen and so called main dishes. Went to Zanmai again last weeks with my buddies and had some good foods and good laugh there.

Zanmai green tea.

As usual, one thing won't come missing in my order when it comes to Japanese food, SMOKED SALMON! I don't know but if I found out that there's no smoked salmon on the menu of a restaurant especially Japanese Restaurant, ya know, I will just walk away BECAUSE IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO ME!!!!! I try out some sushi stuff and my buddies just go for Don and Ramen.

Mentai oyster with agar like thingy at the bottom, tamago mentai, crabby mayo and smoked salmon.

Close up!

I tried out their new sushi, the oyster mentai with the agar thingy, SUPERB! I love it so much, Zanmai been so good in Mentai sushi and oyster always my favorite. I have no idea that agar thingy would make such a great combination with mentai and oyster. A recommendation from me! While my buddy is enjoying her tamago and mayo crabby and ignoring me. Smoked salmon seems to be....hmm, I don't know, the portion and the "scale" has been decreased in size by the chef. Not so happy with that! And I try out the Zanmai's Seafood Hiyashi Chuuka and some other sushi as well.

Seafood Hiyashi Chuuka.

Salmon, scallops, salmon roe and crab meat with cucumber.

The dragon roll, with soft shell crab.

Smoked bonito, salmon belly and smoked salmon AGAIN!

Smoked bonito close up!

The Hiyashi Chuuka get two thumbs up from me! Cold soba is a dish that can delight my appetite and it's the only noodle I will eat (I'm a rice person.). The noddle is so refreshing, the scallops and salmon is fresh! The crab meat is juicy and salmon roe, OHHHH NOOOO! It burst in your mouth and tingling your tastebuds. Just-so-nice! I will definitely have it again for the second time. As for the dragon roll, surprising factor that it is wrapped by a thin sliced of cucumber. It taste good, of course and my buddy seems to enjoy the salmon belly as well but I just stick to my smoked salmon. Oh ya, the smoked bonito. I love the crushed ginger on top, it taste really nice but the bonito....I thought it smoked but I cant feel the taste at all. Improvision needed!

It's really nice time having dinner with my buddies at Sushi Zanmai. The only thing is, they serve a broken tea cup to my friend, not the first time but previously they did the same thing for a few times. I think they should check out their plates and glasses. There's big crack on the cup and they serve it with hot tea, imagine if my friend drinking it and it broken, who's responsibility for that? I mean the injury. I hope Zanmai can do something on that! The food is nice but serving plates and cup...not so.

(PS : I love sushi....should have go for Sushi Tei again next time! )

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 movie review

Finally, it all ends and it ends well.

Decades. seven books, one great storyline, brought into big screen and both the books and movies become the greatest phenomenon on earth! Box office lead the movie join the billion dollar club, adapted from best selling and greatest books of all time, all these factors can't be wrong.

As a big, huge, "ginormous" fans of Harry Potter the books myself has been struggling to watch the Deathly Hallows part 2, finally watched it before it really "ends". 3 weeks after the release date and still loads of people want to watch it, some for the third or fourth times. Let's save the nonsense talking and do the movie talking!

We knew that the Part 1 stop around Dobby's death which is really heartbreaking! And this one start with the reliance on Griphook to sneak into the Gringotts Wizarding Bank and find all those Horcruxes, the battle of Hogwarts and defeat Voldemort. I think Deathly Hallows Part 2 is much much much better than the previous Harry Potter films, at least they didn't skip much storyline although there're still few they didn't state clearly. Most entertaining and impressive part in this movie must be Gringotts Wizarding Bank, Battle of Hogwarts and the Snape's secret pensieve reminiscence scene, burst crying!!!

Hermione disguise as Bellatrix and Ron looks so alike to Sirius Black, I mean the hair and beard!

Where's the Hufflepuff cup?

The Gringotts scene is thrilling, I love it when they get into the Vault. And the way they present the duplication of the cup scene is almost the same as I imagine when I'm reading the book. The dragon is amazing! It's pretty perfect, for me.

Next, let's go to the Battle of Hogwarts!! The visual effect is awesome! The Orge, the Hogwarts guardian soldier.....I think they should have more wizard battle movie in Hollywood!

Hogwarts in a mess!

Voldy using the green lightsaber?

The most anticipate part for Deathly Hallows to be made into the movie screen definately will be the "Look At Me!" part and the Snape pensieve memory "Always" reminiscene, the Prince tales part! I think Alan Rickman aka Snape potrayed Snape so well!! He's the only one that fit to potrayed Severus Snape!! Especially the "Always" part! He deserves something for the acting! The ending for the movie, the epilogue is good. Overall, it's the best movie in the Potter series.

So, here's some of my thought regard the movie :

-The Voldemort fetus under the bench scene when Potter met with Dumbledore, thumbs up for that! That's how it should look like!
-During the Battle of Hogwarts scene, I have teary eyes when wizards guarding Hogwarts, my mind pop up a lot of the following scenes that I read from the books, I know it's going to end and same goes to both my favorite, Lupin and Snape.
-Poor Sirius (Gary Oldman) has only one scene, well it's the same as the book. But he looks older, after his death, falling into the veil. Haha! I'm not laughing at the curtain kill Sirius Black! :P
-The scene where Nagini killed Snape, can I say well done? I mean the scene. Because I can feel pain and heartache everytime it hits Snape towards the glasses, or wall.
-I didn't cry during Snape "Always" scene, I cry when I read the book but I can still feel it, they carry out the scene in a really nice way. T.T
-The way, Tonks, Lupin, Fred died should be focus more in the movie. Just the dead body scenes isn't enough.
-"It is the quality of ones convictions that determine success, not the number of followers." "Who said that?" "Me." Lupin makes me laugh!
-Potter's son Albus Severus in the epilogue scene is soooo cute!
-I feel sad and angry when people call Snape coward during his duel with Prof. McGonagall, where he's trying not to harm her and they don't know what Snape did all this time!!! Okay, okay, the character in the book didn't read the book. No blaming.

You'll be remember! A Slytherin that died like a Gryffindor, the bravest man in the wizarding world!

Applause to both my favorite character, Lupin (Thewlis) and Snape (Rickman) at the last day on the set of Harry Potter.

The movie is good although Deathly Hallows not my favorite book among Harry Potter. In the end, I would like to thanks Joe Rowling for writing such an amazing story for us! The story will never end, as it will remain in our heart! Mischief managed!

(PS : I'm waiting for my Harry Potter books to come to me as I finish reading the books by borrowing from different friends! Anyone wanna buy me a boxset of the books is highly welcomed to contact me. Urgh, gonna read the book again!)
