One Minute More (只要一分钟) Movie Review


One Minute More (只要一分钟) Movie Review:
只要一分钟‬ is a Taiwanese movie filled with scenes thats bound to make you cry, or if not, tear.

Based on Japan’s best- selling novel “Ippunkan Dake". Career minded fashion editor Wan-Chen is fully dedicated to work while her boyfriend Hao-Chieh’s career takes a back seat. The couple’s lifestyle changed tremendously when Wan-Chen brings home a 4- month old Golden Retriever, Lila. The increase pressure at work coupled with Wan-Chen’s promotion caused much tension between the couple and Hao-Chieh chooses to leave.

Just as Wan-Chen is one step away from her dream promotion, Lila is suddenly diagnosed with cancer and requires Wan-Chen’s undivided attention. Wan-Chen faces the dilemma of choosing between her fur-friend and her life-long dream of being at the top of the corporate ladder.

For me, I rarely watch movies with animals it in such as Marley and Me and 10 promises to my dog for one simple reason, ITS SO TOUCHING. TOO TOUCHING. One takeaway from the movie, dogs are truly, men best friend. They don't judge nor forsake you even when you have no time for them. All they want is for you to love them as much as they love you. Although, they do not know how to express it with words, but they are ALWAYS there.

Treasure your animals people! I'd totally recommend kids, teens, adults and even ah-gong and ah-ma to watch this beautiful show. Exclusively showing at Cathay Cineplex.

MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014

16th August 2014 calls for music lovers to gather at Surf Beachm Sunway Lagoon, where the 6th MTV World Stage Malaysia took place.  The stellar line-up of performers B.o.B, Yuna, Boys Republic and Thaitanium rocked the stage in Malaysia with a mixture of R&B, hip-hop and K-pop performances.

Although the concert would only start at 7:30pm, we began to see crowd at the entrance by 4:30pm, and more came along as time went by.  Then it started to drizzle, but the rain did not put off the music lovers.  The fans only had this in their mind, be it rain or shine, the MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 MUST take place!



As the night fallen, the entire Surf Beach was lighted up by the stage lights and all ready for a night of great music!!!


The Thai-American Hip Hop music group, Thaitanium did the opening act where KHAN, WAY, DAY, BIG CALO and Tony B got the audience heated up and all set for the night. They wowed the audience with an upbeat 11-track medley, including an inaugural performance of their new single with Snoop Dogg, “Wake Up (Bangkok City)” where they tweaked the lyrics to "Wake Up (KL City)".



The line-up continued with the 5 cute Korean guys from Boys Republic, kicking off their performance with “You Are Special”.  The boys charmed the audience as they expressed their love in returning to Malaysia. The audience had the previlege to catch Boys Republic's maiden performance of “Video Game” remix version on the MTV World Stage Malaysia, where fans were invited to post 15-second mobile phone clips on Instagram to #worldstagemyfancam.
 
One lucky fan, who won Boys Republic’s “Girlfriend” contest, was introduced during “Dress Up”, whom she got curated towards a new Korean look by the K-Pop group’s stylist and received a wardrobe she strutted proudly on-stage as the boys serenaded her. Their show culminated with fan favourite, “Party Rock”.



The crowd gave a rousing welcome to their home girl, Yuna as she was elevated on to the stage, singing “Falling” against a backdrop of waterfall pyrotechnics. She sang a balance number of both English and Malay songs, enticing audience with “Mountains”, “Lelaki”, “Dan Sebanarya”, “Lights And Camera” and “Terukir Di Bintang”; and mesmerized the fans as she performed “Rescue” with her ukulele. Her songs were totally refreshing, yet with her powerful vocal.  The Malaysian superstar then wrapped up her set with the song, “Come Back”.



Returning to Malaysia, the international rapper, B.o.B, impressed the audience with an energetic performance of a 16-track medley that kept the audience bobbing, e.g., “Don’t Let Me Fall”, “Ready ft. Future”, “Headband ft. 2 Chainz”, “John Doe ft. Priscilla” and “So Good”. Through out his performace, B.o.B thrilled his fans by randomly snapping selfies with their phone and went crowd surfing. MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014 was lit up with audience waving their mobile phones to a soulful performance of “Both of Us ft. Taylor Swift”. It was a poignant moment when B.o.B dedicated global hit song “Airplanes ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore”, to all those who had lost loved ones in recent tragedies.

Memorable Staycation at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

It’s Hpility SG 7th Anniversary!!! Happy 7th birthday to my blog! I still remember I created this blog when I was a secondary school student, the days where people create blog to record their daily life. I started off this blog alone, blogging about my personal life as well as events and as time flies, this blog website slowly become a team of 4. I selected my writers wisely and being helpful of them, now they were all my best friends in life.

The room facilities was essential, they have a comfortable room space layout, large desks for work and satisfying bathroom use.

Singapore vs Juventus: First Football Match at New National Stadium with OCBC

I have been invited by Sports Hub Premier Founding Partner OCBC to catch the first football match in the new National Stadium – Juventus vs Singapore Selection - at the one of National Stadium Club’s 61 Executive Suites that boasts panoramic views of the National Stadium.


Singapore is the final leg of the two weeks #JUVETOUR in Indonesia, Australia and Singapore and the Bianconeri didn’t disappoint by scoring 5-0 against the Singapore Selection in front of approximate 27,000 supporting fans.


Andrea Pirlo was definitely the most recognizable and idolized Bianconeri in this match from the reaction of the crowd cheering him on whenever he took a corner kick or free kick. Pirlo returned the favor back to his fans by scoring the first two goals of the game; both goals from stationary position of a free kick on the 17th minutes and a spot kick three minutes before the half time whistle (with 1 minute of injury time included).

Gianluigi Buffon, the other crowd favorite, on the other hand had a day off on the pitch as he was not tested throughout his appearance apart from a catch when a low ball, by Singapore Selection, flew past the Juve goal post inside the penalty box.



Although both star players were substituted after the first half break, the game actually came into life as the pace of the game increased, helped by three brilliantly-executed goals by Pogba on the 48th minutes, Giovinco on the 55th minutes and Asamoah on the 71st minute. My favorite was the goal scored by Pogba as he beat not one but three players before shooting the ball into the net from inside the box!



The fundamental problem with the Singapore Selection was the lack a visionary player like Pirlo who could make the ball connection with the rest of his team from midfield. The Singapore Selection whenever in possession of the ball always kept making the same mistake of passing the ball through a group of Juventus players waiting in the center of the field. In my opinion, if Singapore Selection would have concentrated on long ball on both flanks, the result might be different!


Non-existence man-marking and poor clearance of ball inside the penalty box by Singapore Selection were also two key issues that Bernd Stange, the national team coach of Singapore, needed to work on if Singapore wanted to perform well in the coming AFF Suzuki Cup at the end of this year.


Overall the game would have been better if not for the horrendous condition of the football pitch and missing Carlos Tevez in action. Nevertheless, all these shortfalls have somewhat been compensated by the great hospitality of OCBC. Thank you OCBC!

Before I pen off, please catch the video of all 5 goals scored against Singapore Selection:
