THE HURRICANE HEIST (Movie Review)


Not much escapes the wrath of a Category 5 hurricane. And in 1992, when Hurricane Andrew swept over Gulfport, Alabama, Will and Breeze Rutledge watched their father’s tragic death unfold before their eyes.

These days, the brothers live vastly different lives in an effort to forget the past. Though he remains terrified of hurricanes, Will has nevertheless earned a Ph.D. in synoptic meteorology. Breeze, meanwhile, still resides in Gulfport, working as a mechanic and tow truck driver by day, and passing his days with women and alcohol by night.

That's when Tammy shows up. No, she's not one of Breeze's casual lovers. Instead, Tammy is supposed to be a Category 2 hurricane. Will suspects it will be much worse, and he's in town again to track and research it. Oh, and to encourage Breeze to get out of town like everyone else who's under mandatory evacuation orders from the sheriff.

But outrunning a deadly storm will soon be the least of Will and Breeze's problems. You see, a hurricane offers perfect cover for an audacious crime. It's an ideal opportunity to break into the U.S. Treasury facility in Gulfport to steal the hundreds of millions in worn-out currency sent there to be shredded.

And what a heist it will be, run by a honcho by the name of Connor Perkins. He and his unruly gang feel that they're entitled to the fortune that the U.S. government cavalierly shreds on a regular basis. But there’s just one catch: The facility's power has been partially knocked out by the storm (though somehow, lights and computers are still on), and the backup generator has died, too. So these would-be thieves are now down to the wire if they want to perfectly execute their audacious plan.

Only a couple of people stand in their way. The first, Treasury Agent Casey Corbin, is determined not to let them get away with the crime. And then there's Will, who's similarly determined to rescue brother Breeze, who's been captured for the purpose of restarting that broken generator.

Will intends to do everything possible to save his hostage brother, because he's not going to let a hurricane claim the life of another person he loves dearly. But doing that will require facing his memories of another storm that's haunted him for his entire life.

Kenapa warna paspor berbeda-beda ?


Kini berpergian keluar negeri adalah sebuah trend, paspor salah satu benda yang penting. Tapi kalau di perhatikan desain paspor memiliki warna yang berbeda beda. Setiap negara memiliki alasan spesifik dalam memilih salah satu warna untuk parpor mereka.


1. Merah


Merah adalah warna yang paling lazim digunakan. Warna ini biasanya dipilih negara-negara yang memiliki sejarah atau menganut sistem komunis. Warga Slovenia, Serbia, Latvia, Romania, China, Rusia, Polandia dan Georgia memiliki paspor warna merah. Selain itu, warna ini juga dipakai negara anggota Uni Eropa, kecuali Kroasia.

Negara-negara yang tertarik bergabung dengan Uni Eropa, termasuk Turki, Macedonia dan Albania juga mengganti warna paspor menjadi merah beberapa tahun silam. Sementara itu, negara lain yang memilih merah adalah Bolivia, Kolombia, Ekuador dan Peru.


2. Biru


Biru adalah warna kedua yang paling banyak digunakan untuk paspor. Biru menyimbolkan "dunia baru" dan warna ini dipakai 15 negara Karibia. Negara-negara di Amerika Selatan, seperti Brasil, Argentina dan Paraguay juga menggunakan paspor biru, sampulnya menyimbolkan hubungan dengan Mercosur, organisasi negara-negara Amerika Selatan.

Salah satu paspor biru yang terkenal adalah milik warga AS, tapi mereka baru menggantinya jadi biru pada 1976. Inggris juga sempat memakai warna biru untuk paspornya, namun warna biru tua itu diganti dengan warna merah anggur pada 1988.


3. Hijau


Warna hijau pada paspor memiliki simbol alam dan kehidupan. Sebagian besar negara muslim menggunakan paspor warna hijau, misalnya Indonesia, Maroko, Saudi Arabia dan Pakistan. Ini karena hijau dianggap sebagai warna favorit Rasullullah Muhammad SAW.

Sebagian negara Afrika Barat, termasuk Nigeria, Niger dan Segal juga punya warna paspor hijau, tapi warna itu dipilih karena mereka termasuk dalam bagian Economic Community of West African States.


4. Hitam


Ini adalah warna paspor yang paling jarang. Sebagian negara Afrika, seperti Botswana, Zambia, Burundi, Gabon, Angola, Chad, Kongo dan Malawi memiliki paspor hitam. Warga negara Selandia Baru juga punya paspor hitam karena itu adalah warna nasional negara tersebut.

PACIFIC RIM UPRISING (Movie Review)



We humans won the biggest, most terrifying conflict that had ever come our way.

An alien race known as the Precursors somehow ripped open a portal into our world and sent in gargantuan monsters to clear out the earthbound virus that is mankind. It took a great deal of human ingenuity, and the generous application of hard-hitting gigantic mechs called Jaegers (German for hunter), to beat those radioactive Kaiju back.

That all took place 10 years ago. And a decade can feel like a blip or a lifetime depending on your perspective.

Jake Pentacost, for instance, doesn't even want to think that far back. That's because he's had a hard time living up to his father's reputation: Marshal Stacker Pentecost just happens to be the guy who blew himself up to save the planet by sealing the breach those crafty Kaiju kept crawling through.

Jake would rather leave that legacy and the work of the Pan Pacific Defense Corp behind him. So he survives by scavenging valuable parts from fallen Jaegers that still scatter the landscape. And he squats rent-free in partially demolished estates of the once rich and famous. (I mean, half a mansion is better than a whole-but-grubby apartment, right?)

However, while living this scavenge-and-squat lifestyle, Jake has a chance encounter with a scrappy young woman named Amara. She's an orphan gearhead who also just happens to be building her own illegal Jaeger—something that the authorities are cracking down on.

Before you know it, both Jake and Amara get snatched up and are given an option: They can apply their skills on the right side of the law or get used to a prison cell. So they head to a PPDC base where Amara can learn the finer points of true Jaeger piloting, and where Jake can reunite with some old friends—like the hard-driving Ranger Nate Lambert—and slip back into that mech-driving role himself.

Of course, that doesn't mean that Jake is all that happy about the way things have turned out. He figures he'll just bide his time until he can slip away once more. But during that biding, a rogue Jaeger pops up and starts wreaking deadly havoc. What's worse, there appears to be a tie between this mech and … the Precursors?

Could there be a nefarious conspiracy afoot? Could humans actually be helping the hated Precursor cause? Could this be round two of the alien invasion?

For that matter, could it be time for another hero named Pentacost to step up and save mankind in its hour of greatest need?

Madame Tussauds Singapore


Madame Tussauds Singapore tickets also include entry to Images of Singapore, which I found extremely entertaining and informative.  The boys were too young to appreciate it though.  I think children need to be at least primary school age to understand what’s going on.

Photography and videography were not allowed, so I can’t show you much.  You need to follow a 30-minutes tour of the exhibits with live commentary, film and special effects along the way.  You cannot leave the tour halfway through and need to complete it once you are inside – so make sure the kids go to the toilet before you enter!
