The Possession of Hannah Grace [Movie Review]

8:27 AM 19 Comments A+ a-

Hello peeps. So here is another review of a horror story. Sorry, I am a horror-freak like that.
The Possession of Hannah Grace, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins, WeTix
Thanks to WeTix for extending the invitation to me for the premiere.

SYNOPSIS
'I know one thing for sure - when you're dead, you're dead. Nothing.' The sentence uttered by Megan when she got the job at the morgue. 

Megan, a reformed alcoholic and addict accepts the job at the morgue as a part of her effort to keep herself from turning back to the bottles and the pills. And she gets the graveyard shift. Oh. So predictable. 
The Possession of Hannah Grace, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins, WeTix
After this, you should try out to become an astronaut
But before that, the movie starts with a scene from an ongoing exorcism of Hannah Grace. Two man of faith tries to exorcise the demon out of her. The first one fails miserable (and ends up dead after being lifted in the air and thrown to the walls by unseen hands). The second one was in the middle of choking himself to death when Hannah's father decides that to end the misery is to kill his only child by suffocating her with the pillow while she is tied up to the bed.

The Possession of Hannah Grace Trivia
  • Directed by: Diederik Van Rooijen
  • Produced by: Todd Garner, Sean Robbins
  • Production company: Broken Road Productions
  • Distributed by: Screen Gems
  • Running time: 85 minutes
  • Budget: $9.5 million
  • The film was originally entitled Cadaver 
Back to Megan. Her first night went well except for a stupid prank from Dave, one of the guards that are on the same shift as she is. 

On her second night, a 'homeless' man tries to enter the morgue via the body drop-off entrance but Megan denies him. Not soon after, a new body comes in. She was asked to assist in transferring the body from the ambulance into the morgue. Despite the warning about her not leaving the room, she helps with the transfer of the body. Inspecting the body, she is mortified that the body has burnt marks and extreme cuts everywhere. All the electronics burnt while she tries to take the pictures of the body and the thumbprints.

Sorry. I overdid the bloody part while doing my Halloween make up
The Possession of Hannah Grace, Horror Movie, Movie Review by Rawlins, WeTix
If only my wardrobe is this big.
Not soon after, bizarre and violent things start happening at the hand of the entity within the corpse. And slowly, she notices that people around her start to disappear and the wounds on the body start to disappear too.

Then she realizes, the dead will not stay dead. 

Will Megan be able to 'kill' Hannah?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.5/5.0. I think the plot is nicely written and the director has done a good job directing the horror piece. Hannah running and climbing around the morgue is pretty believable and actually gives me the creeps. Jump scare scenes? Quite a few but the first one actually made the whole audience in the hall screaming. 

Cast: 4.5/5.0. No complaint here too. Everyone did their part justice. 

Will I watch it again:  I will, at the comfort of my room, with the curtains all drawn shut!

Loving the sun with Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway

7:30 AM 13 Comments A+ a-

Althea Angels, Althea Korea, Beauty Review by Rawlins, K-Beauty, Rawlins GLAM, Petal Velvet Sunaway, Rawlins Travels,
Too much sun? Use Petal Velvet Sunaway
Popular belief: Guys need not taking care of the skin, so please do not put on whatever lotion, sunscreen or whatever. Just be tough and man it up.

Real fact: We always thought that a little sun will do us no harm. But UV rays lurking everywhere you go. A few unprotected minutes in the sun here and there might feel like a small deal, but they add up quickly. Up to a point, you are risking yourself to skin damage and skin cancer. So, please ditch the 'man up and face the sun act' and wear some protection, please!
Althea Angels, Althea Korea, Beauty Review by Rawlins, K-Beauty, Rawlins GLAM, Petal Velvet Sunaway, Rawlins Travels,
Small in size, huge in benefits
Hence, ever since I learn that Althea Korea has come up with the latest baby in its skincare collection, the Petal Velvet Sunaway, I always arm myself with the little skin saviour. Due to its very compact and small size, I can just put it inside my clutch and bring it anywhere. 
Why am I loving this amazing Petal Velvet Sunaway so much?
  1. The compact, light and small size - easy to carry anywhere. 
  2. It's watery, non-sticky and light-weight texture is all I asked for. I just hate it when I put on a sticky sunscreen that will not disappear (absorb) fast enough and leave me looking like a ghost.
  3. It absorbs quickly thus will not be giving you the white cast, unnecessarily. Thank God for this. It helps when you are in a hurry.
  4. It stays for more than 6 hours - it will not ruin your makeup and you don't have to always add it up. Thus, the 55ml content will go a long way too.
  5. I love the light Damask Rose smell that it has, very refreshing to the face and to your nose.
Althea Angels, Althea Korea, Beauty Review by Rawlins, K-Beauty, Rawlins GLAM, Petal Velvet Sunaway, Rawlins Travels,
Bring it anywhere and enjoy the world
Now, let us get to know more about the Petal Velvet Sunaway
  • It comes with an SPF50+ and PA ++++, so the skin will be well-protected against all UV rays all day long
  • It contains a non-chemical formula with a light, fluid texture to protect the skin from both the UVA and UVB rays. 
  • It contains micro-powder particles that absorb sebum and excess oil from the skin to give you a smooth, petal-like complexion.
  • The Damask Rose Extract has a natural nanomolecular composition that is rich in vitamins to penetrate deep into the skin, soothing sensitivities and strengthening it for a radiant glow. It also performs an important function to moisturize and smoothen the skin
  • It also contains Geranium Oil that is known to promote beautiful and radiant skin, as used by the Egyptians. It also treats acne, reduces inflammation, alleviates anxiety and balances hormones. It will also uplift your mood, lessen fatigue and promote emotional wellness - so many benefits in just one bottle! 
So, there you go peeps.
If you looking for a practical, long-lasting, light-weight and suitable for all kinds of skin (I encounter no problem at all despite having my sensitive skin), do give Petal Velvet Sunaway a try.

Just hop on to [Althea Korea] and shop away.

Psst. All the items are so cheap there, so shop wisely. 
You'll enjoy your stay there.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald [Movie Review]

11:25 AM 15 Comments A+ a-

I get all excited when I learned about the movie.
Fantastic Beasts, The Crimes of Grindelwald, Warner Bros. Pictures, J.K. Rowlins, The Wizarding World, Harry Potter, Hogwart, Dumbledore, Gellert Grindelwald
So, as another reason to meet up with friends, we decided to watch the second instalment in the Fantastis Beasts film series and the tenth overall in the Wizarding World franchise. Reading all the contradicting comments online made me even more excited to watch the movie.

SYNOPSIS
So, Gellert Grindelwald is being held prisoner and his tongue was cut off to prevent him from 'sweet-talking' the guards and put them under his spells. When departing New York for transfer back to London, he is freed by a follower and Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) employee, Abernathy. 

Ehmmm. Why can't they just teleport him, I wonder?

Despite being banned from travelling overseas, Dumbledore sends Newt to Paris to track down and stop the newly escaped Grindelwald from gathering his faithful pure-blood wizards in his attempt to rule both the Wizarding world and the human world. While locating Grindelwald, Newt comes across the case of the missing Obscurial Credence Barebone, the last of a long pure-blood line of wizards. Grindelwald is also on the look for Credence as he believes that only Credence could kill his living equal, Dumbledore.

Newt also has to settle the misunderstanding between him, Tina (his real love) and Leta (his brother's fiance) during his travel in Paris. While in Paris, Tina meets Yusuf Kama, who is also on the lookout for Credence. 

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Trivia
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Produced by: David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steven Kloves, Lionel Wigram
  • Production company: Warner Bros. Pictures, Heyday Films
  • Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures
  • Running time: 134 minutes
  • Budget: $200 million
  • Box office: $253.2 million
During a rally with his followers, Grindelwald preaches about the supremacy of wizards. And he gains more followers when a few of Newt's friends decide to join Grindelwald.

Who is Credence and why is he so important, to everyone?
What will happen to the world, with Grindelwald's group grows larger?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0. I love the plot of this instalment. But as the title mentions 'The Crimes of Grindelwald', I remain clueless as to what are the crimes of Grindelwald, up until the end of the movie. And the twists are just too many, at times I got entangled while trying to untangle the twists. So, please focus on the movie so that you will not miss a single clue throughout the movie. By reading the piece from The Insider, there is a list of questions that are left unanswered in this instalment. Hopefully, we will get the answers in the coming ones. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0. No complaint on this department. Everybody was superb.

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right company.

Jeonghwa [EXID] Loves My Skincare Products Too

7:30 AM 6 Comments A+ a-

How was your weekend so far?
Has it been relaxing?
Did you manage to pamper yourself during the weekend?
Most of us tried to but couldn't find the time to just unwind and pamper ourselves because the regime takes time to prepare and finish.

What if there is a product that will allow you to unwind and pamper yourself within 10 seconds?
Wait! There is.
A fruit of collaboration between the two huge beauty giants in Korea, Althea Korea and Get It Beauty, a beauty regime collection that showcases real, fresh ingredients and incorporates them into a system that allows a deep, clarifying cleanse while boosting the skin with nutrients and goodness was born. A simplified, nourishing and efficient beauty regime name The Real Skin Detoxer.
The collection was sent to us, Althea Angels in accordance with the 3rd Althea Korea's birthday. 
And here is my post about the introduction of the beauty regime into the world [The Real Skin Detoxer]. 

A super-GLAM fact is that the collaboration is super successful and huge that Jeonghwa, a mega K-Pop star from the group EXID is also a fan of these amazing fruits of collaboration

I have been using the two magnificent masks alternately every weekend and I love both of them equally. The masks were super fast, easy to use and the best thing is, they do not irritate my super sensitive skin.
In the past, I have a tried a few masks and it made my skin itchy and the worst was, I have red spots all over my face. Alhamdulilah, with these two. my skin is happy and glowing. Hehe.
Want to be just like Jeonghwa?

Hunter Killer [Movie Review]

11:10 AM 20 Comments A+ a-

My friends and I will always find an excuse to meet up and spend our time together, may it be over coffee, movie or just a plain spicy gossip.
Movie Review by Rawlins, action movie, action thriller, Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman,
So, last Diwali holiday, we decided that we NEED to watch a movie together and just simply decided to give Hunter Killer a go. I have read splitting reviews about the movie, so I just want to watch it for myself.
SYNOPSIS
A US submarime, the USS Tampa Bay, vanishes while shadowing a Russian submarine in the Arctic. 
In order to find out what's going on and to avoid a possibility of igniting a third world war, Commander Joe Glass was send to investigate the incident.
Movie Review by Rawlins, action movie, action thriller, Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman,
And what exactly what are watching here gentlemen? I only see dots and lines
Sensing something amiss, Admiral Charles Donnegan agrees with Jayne and Rear Admiral John Fisk's idea to send a Navy Seal team, under the command of Lieutenant Beamen, to discreetly observe a Russian naval base. When they arrive at the base, they witness the Russian Defence Minister, Admiral Durov conducting a coup d'etat by taking the Russian President Zakarin prisoner. 

 Hunter Killer Trivia
  • Directed by: Donovan Marsh
  • Produced by:  Toby Jaffe, Neal Moritz, Gerard BUtler, Tucker Tooley, Alan Siegel, Mark Gill
  • Running time: 121 minutes
  • Budget: $40 Mill
  • Distributed by: Summit Entertainment
Meanwhile, under the sea, Commander Glass, onboard of Arkansas, comes across the lost US submarine, on the sea floor, with no survivor. Then the crew hears the distress signal and searches the area for the source. Upon contact with another sunken ship, the Russian submarine, Commander Glass realises that the ship was sabotaged and the explosion comes from inside the submarine.

As they are about to rescue the survivors of the sunken Russian submarine, the crew realises that they are being targetted by another submarine that has been hiding under an iceberg. Skillfully, Glass manages to avoid the impact of the attack and instead, destroys the ambusher, apparently a Russian submarine. Putting the incidents together, Glass realises that the attack on both sunken submarines is staged to start a war.
Movie Review by Rawlins, action movie, action thriller, Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman,
When will this one stop talking? I need to go home and watch Ellen with my wife
Movie Review by Rawlins, action movie, action thriller, Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman,
Sir, can you please sit down? I wanna watch the movie too.
Despite disagreement from his crew, especially from his Executive Officer, Glass saves the survivors from the wreck, including the submarine captain, Capt. Andropov. 

Back at the base, via the surveillance feeds from Lieutenant Beaman's team, the US government learns that Admiral Durov is trying to ignite a war between the two countries. Admiral Donnegan insists on preparing for war but Rear Admiral Fisk suggests that the Arkansas assist the rescue mission of President Zakarin by the Beaman's team and avoid the war at all cost. 

Which route will the US government take, rescue the enemy to avoid a war or face the war?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 One will know from the get-go that the US will be the hero. But I love the curves thrown unexpectedly throughout the movie, it keeps my eyes peeled on the screen. It might not be the best movie that Gerard has ever starred in but there are scenes that you feel like holding your breathe and pray for the safety of the cast.

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 I would say that the cast is amazing - no complaint whatsoever about their performance.

Will I watch it again: I will, at home.

Healthier and Fuller Hair with Lab 11 Full-Lift Series

10:11 AM 15 Comments A+ a-

As time catches on, every living soul will worry about the lines in his/her life - worry-linewaist-line and the thinning hairline.
Lab 11 International, Lab 11 Full-Lift Series, Lab 11 Full-Lift Shampoo, Lab 11 Full-Lift Soft Mask, Beauty by Rawlins, Hair care products
Nope. Not me. And he is yet  to experience the receding hairline haha
And now, me too!
The ladies tend to be more cautious about the receding hairline but not the guys (most are quite comfortable with the thinning hair) but not me! I need my hair for all the upcoming events! Hahaha (vain much, Rawlins?)

As of now, my current trend of hairstyling is 'man-bun'. I 'man-bun' my hair to any event that I attend and whenever I work my fat-off in the gym. There's this myth that 'man-bunning' your hair will expedite the thinning hairline but as of now, that's the best style for my hair as my hair is so 'flat and lifeless'.

I have actually met a brand that works for me. It helps to curb the thinning and falling hair and also the scalp problem. But it did not manage to make them fluffier, fuller and more 'alive'.

And then I was introduced to Lab 11 Full-Lift Series that includes Shampoo and Soft Mask. What's so special about the series? Here are the reasons why Lab 11 Full-Lift Series so special.

Now, let get straight to the business.
What are the ingredients inside these amazing bottles of hair-saviours?
Lab 11 International, Lab 11 Full-Lift Series, Lab 11 Full-Lift Shampoo, Lab 11 Full-Lift Soft Mask, Beauty by Rawlins, Hair care products
  • Watercress: It helps to strengthen hair roofs for fluffy hair 
  • Castor oil: To moisturize, darken, thicken hair and reduce hair loss
  • Eucalyptus essential oil: To reduce inflammation of scalp and relief itchy scalp
  • Peppermint essential oil: To improve blood circulation, hydrate scalp and reduce hair loss
  • Argan oil: To provide nutrition, repair damaged hair and restructure split ends
  • Sweet orange essential oil: To reduce dandruff and make hair shiny and bouncy
  • Lime essential oil: To remove oil from hair and rebalance scalp moisture from within

Why choose Lab 11 Full-Lift Shampoo

Weighs at 300ml, the shampoo contains natural watercress extracts to provide high amounts of sulfur, zinc and magnesium to your hair. The consistent use of the shampoo is stronger hair roots, increased hair follicular density and thus plumping up the hair shaft to make the hair look fuller << THIS is the effect that I am really looking forward to. The shampoo claims to make my hair feel lighter after shampooing and visibly thicker. Can you tell the difference from the pictures below? I actually feel my hair lighter, bouncier and a bit fluffy after the usage.
We all shampoo (some might be less than the others lol) so I bet all of us know how to use the shampoo. But here's a prescribed routine to amplify and maximise the impact of the shampoo's goodness upon your hair.
  1. Comb hair to smoothen before shampoo
  2. Wet hair thoroughly 
  3. Apply shampoo onto scalp and wash gently. Repeat as necessary
  4. Dry gently with a towel. Tips: When using a hair dryer, use it from TOP to BOTTOM  to avoid hair damage.

Lab 11 Full-Lift Soft Mask
Lab 11 International, Lab 11 Full-Lift Series, Lab 11 Full-Lift Shampoo, Lab 11 Full-Lift Soft Mask, Beauty by Rawlins, Hair care products
This amazing after-shampoo concoction is rich in argan oil, olive oil and amino acids, all of which will help to replenish, hydrate and restructure the split end and broken hair shafts. My hair is easily tangled and at times, I found split ends that make it harder to comb through. As seen from the video and the pictures below, you can tell that the styling process is pretty much simpler and faster, thus saves me some time while getting myself ready to go out. 
When applying the soft mask, here are the right way to maximise the effect on your hair:
  1. Dry hair with a towel
  2. Apply soft mask on to hair, from mid-length to end
  3. Use finger to detangle and fully coat hair from root to end
  4. Leave for 2 - 4 min before rinse
Well, to make things easier, here's a tutorial of how to use the Full-Lift Series the right way.

MY VERDICT
I sweat very easily. I sweat when I walk, when I eat spicy food and especially when I exercise. For a working guy who tries to make it to the gym for at least an hour for 4 days in a week and 'man-bun' his hair every time he exercises, you can imagine the state of my hair when the day ends. It will be in a huge sweaty mess.
So, after using the series for almost a week, here are my verdict:
  • It helps to fluff and give body to my hair. I am a happy guy as my hair is no longer the boring-flat hair.
  • The hair fall/ loss is lessened.
  • I love the citrusy smell it has on my hair.
  • Itchy scalp? Almost non-existense
Now, you want to know more about these amazing duos right?
Just head on to these media links and keep in touch with them. They will show you the way to the amazing hair-regality that is Lab 11 Full-Lift Series.

Great Food @ Pak John Steamboat & BBQ Buffet IOI City Mall

7:30 AM 19 Comments A+ a-

Growing up, my parents have a monthly family gathering tradition where we would gather with close families and friends over BBQ, drinks and good gossips ( not in that order hahaha).

Now that I reside so far away from them, I am kinda missing those moments. Since I stay in an apartment, having a BBQ is certainly out of the question.

Then, upon a recommendation of The Butterfly Project, I decided to visit the recent branch of Pak John Steamboat and BBQ Buffet in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. Thank God for the new branch, I don't have to travel far to have a great mini-reunion with my friends. We have had tried the ones in e-Curve but as time goes by since I am staying in Bangi and most of my friends are around, we decided not to travel that far and we were all kinda missing the good choice of food there. Now that the branch is nearer, there will be no more reason for not meeting up over great food!

Upon arrival, the staff greeted us warmly and showed us to the table. I immediately scanned the menu and the price. Hey hey! Not bad! with the vast choices, I would say the price is very reasonable (cheap I dare to say too). And this is a buffet restaurant so you can eat to your heart (and tummy) content!

FACT: Pak John Steamboat & BBQ has the halal certification issued by JAKIM

As I love to have vegetables at every meal, I was so relieved and happy that the vegetables are fresh and aplenty. The meat, poultry and seafood sections are the most popular sections but you do not have to fight everybody else to get your pick as the staff are super quick in replenishing the stock. Just queue like normal and civilized people as more stocks are coming right up in no time.

Going around the restaurant, I realised that they have also a fried section where they served fried rice, fried dumplings, fried crab and fish cakes and other sinfully delicious fried foods. Owh. Pak John Steamboat and BBQ Buffet in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya also serves steamed rice here too.

And now they have all those ramens and Japanese noodles that everyone has been talking about. So yes. One will be spoilt for choices here!

And please do not miss out on the Premium Cuts, available at the kitchen. Just head over to the kitchen counter and choose (or don't choose, just have them all like I did) from Premium Beef, Lamb, Abalone and Smoked Duck. And yes, you may come over again and again for the premium choices, not limited to once only. 

Don't forget to get yourself some of the dim sums there too, while you are at the kitchen counter. Pssst. Take more of the salted egg pao - it is very yummy!

As per PPZ's motto 'Memudahkan Anda Berzakat', here are the new and improved functions available on the zakat2u
  • A simpler and automatic calculator for zakat calculation
  • Troli Zakat: enable one to pay more than one type of zakat during a transaction
  • Availability of official receipt for online payments
  • Doa recitation for muzakki after a completed zakat payment transaction

'The launch of portal zakat2u Version 4.0 serves as a sign of our appreciation to all the zakat payers and for their trust in having us as their zakat collector. Without their contribution, PPZ will not be able to assist almost 30,000 needy families yearly. And now, the number is growing too' said Tuan Haji Ahmad Shukri Yusoff, the Chief Executive Officer of PPZ MAIWP, during the launch. He hopes that the improved quality of service will facilitate and encourage the public to pay zakat to reduce urban poverty.

As of October 2018, a total of RM13 million has been collected via the old version portal. He also hopes that with the launch of the latest version, the amount will achieve RM25 million by the year-end, as the system eases the process and procedures.

When asked whether PPZ will come up with an online application soon, he confirms that the project is in the pipeline. 

The practice of zakat can be used to cultivate the people to be generous and to love qurban. The practice can also remove the stingy nature and the stingy elements. And Allah SWT rewards a great reward for producing the property solely for His pleasure.

"Ambillah (sebahagian) dari harta mereka menjadi sedekah, supaya dengannya engkau membersihkan mereka (dari dosa) dan mensucikan mereka (dari akhlak yang buruk), dan doakanlah untuk mereka, kerana sesungguhnya doamu itu menjadi ketenteraman bagi mereka, dan (ingatlah) Allah Maha Mendengar Lagi Maha Mengetahui." – Surah At-Taubah (ayat 103)
