Logan – Older, Fuller, Sexier

Hi everyone.

Before I start anything, I want to tell you that Logan is a very good movie.

I won’t give you spoilers but it is beautiful (and M18 for the violent gore and language).

I wanted to watch it before I did this post because everyone else (Red Dot Diva, HereBeGeeks and even Mothership?!) wrote about it. The it, that was Absolute Comic’s review on wanting Laura to be older, fuller, sexier.

This is the tale of someone in that company being an utter dolt about social media because right now, the post has been deleted but it has sent ripples through the geek/pop culture community who actually buys stuff from that shop.

RDD and HBG pretty much tells you what happened and WHY it is bad. Let’s forget about Mothership, they’re just in it for clicks with that vagueish fact article.

I’m just gonna tell you why that review pissed off a heck load of people.

SCREENSHOTS from various people by the way.

On March 2  Absolute Comics trended on twitter. This was the first time a local comic store in Singapore trended on twitter and it was because of their movie ‘review’.

Buy Alienware Dell ?

You might be searching for alienware dell support or alienware dell help. Or even alienware dell singapore support or alienware dell singapore help.

This is page is not help.

And even if it was, you’re still not going to get help.

This is not my computer, but it’s my pal Pris. She bought an Alienware Dell PC including additional warranty and all she got was crap.

TL;DR if you wan to skim through:

Alienware Dell support is nonexistent in Singapore. She bought warranty. All she got was frustration as tech support bounced her around. They’re using outsourced tech support people and even they are frustrated at the parts Dell gave them. Refurbished motherboards that do not work. And she had to go through all social media channels to get help because their official lines didn’t.

The ‘tech support’ want to do it during office hours when she’s at work and that’s stupid. She managed to get it ‘post 6pm’ after complaining so much but the computer still doesn’t work since they didn’t go through it properly. As of now, her computer is still NOT working. Do not buy Alienware Dell. If you can help Pris get a new computer, even better. Please help. Alienware isn’t.

AND NOW FOR THE STORY because you all like drama.

Seriously Sarah’s Official Response to Kelly’s Apology

This post is about this: http://mothership.sg/2016/11/teenage-magazines-aunt-kelly-gives-victim-blaming-advice-to-girl-who-was-raped/

and the eventual ‘apology’ here: http://teenage.com.sg/campus/dear-kellys-official-response-and-apology/


Dear Kelly,

I sincerely apologise if my response to your apology will come across harsh and… No. I’m actually not apologizing at all.

My response takes into consideration of many of the commenters and the people who actually buy the magazine so that they will not engage in such risky behavior such as writing letters to you and this is also aimed at warning my readers the consequences they face should they engage in asking advice from a magazine.

Throughout my response, I am blaming you. You are not naive. Your apology is not for you to give your own reasons or excuses that your focus was for her and the reasons to learn that certain actions have consequences.

You were focusing more on your own reasons rather than actually apologizing and stating why your article was detrimental.

You wanted everyone to know the ‘danger of sending the wrong signals’ while you were giving plenty yourself.

I know you are a total innocent. Yet I can’t help wonder how a poly student could be so naive? … Frankly, I understand why the guy misunderstood your acceptance of the invitation.

There. That is not helpful at all since you are deemed as siding with the guy when all she wanted was your help and support.

Sure, you have no intention of ‘victim blaming’ as stated in your apology but this is now an attempt to point out one’s actions have consequences and the sad fact, for you that everyone is commenting at, is that you are terribly out of touch.

No one can be more sorry now for this girl than all of us who have read your advice. If you are the girl who wrote the letter, please ignore her advice and know that we support you and there is a helpline at AWARE or even by email which you can find out more here.

If you genuinely care for your readers and truly, if you have built a warm caring relationship, I hope you would never downplay the seriousness of your own actions to have negative consequences.

We don’t care about your disclaimer about condoning pre-marital sex or not. We care about you giving actual helpful advice.

You are only gravely sorry that this response has garnered a negative response. And you apologized if your response has upset readers while hoping after your explanation that we would understand where you are coming from. No. We did not want to understand where you are coming from, we wanted an apology or at least an apology to the girl WHY your advice was bad which you clearly did not do at all.

Your whole apology was just a bunch of reasons trying to show how caring you are without actually caring. There is a difference.

And if your bio is true, with counselling primary and secondary school students since the 1970s. I think you’re due for a refresher course. Because you’re terribly out of date with your advising or counselling techniques.

Seriously Sarah

After never qualifying as a teacher or not even wanting to be one, Sarah never attended any counselling workshops but she darn heck knows what the heck is bad advice. Over the past 20 years, she has been invited to eat dinner with friends and gives talks to random people at conventions. She also engages in Overwatch gaming. In the 1980s, she was born in one of those years and was a baby. Since 1996, she learned how to read.

TOP 10 PROVOCATIVE COSPLAYARS AT STGCC

Provocative

Bring provocative means being attractive as cosplayers. Cosplayers are people who wear costumes and play. Here is the top 10 provocative cosplayers at STGCC this year.

1)  Super Awesome Cosplay

By Pinkkatsyah

Picture by Pinkkatsyah.

This is one of the most provocative cosplayer. We were so excited. See our excitement. But it was the best.

Urban Armor Gear!

The box!

Ok, I’m just gonna say you can get your Urban Armor Gear at Lazada on my link here because at least they’ll deliver to you at Lazada.

You can still get the cases in store though cause I’ve seen them around (just make sure they’re genuine?).

I’m stating this now cause it’s gonna be ‘holiday’ season soon and it’s best to get your phones protected before you go on trips and try take pics with your phone etc.

The SAD thing is that I’m using an OPPO so I can’t use UAG cases.

Heck, for my specific phone model, I can’t even get nifty cases so the second best way is… GET MY FRIENDS (they use more mainstream phones) to use the cases cause when they’re on adventure with me, well, what better way for them to take pics of me instead?

NYAHAHA.

Anyway, tl;dr version. If you can afford your phone, you can afford this case to protect it. Yes, it has more colours than pink and also, it has protectors for ipads, Samsung, macbook airs and even Surface Pros.

Anywho, I passed this particular case to my friend since she accompanies me to events and stuff too.

The Huntsman Winter War

The Huntsman Winterwar

So I watched The Huntsman Winter’s War when 3 of the stars came by to Singapore. I won passes from Resorts World Sentosa (you should like their facebook, they have contests at times!) and got to watch it before it premiered everywhere here.

So yessss.

Also here’s going to be a non-spoilerific review. I LIKED IT. Some didn’t but I DID.

Plus, there’s one scene that is obviously cut in the middle of smooching.

This movie is a pre-sequel. Ignore the trailers, it is the before AND after of Snow White and the Huntsman.

What I liked about the movie is that:

Jupiter Ascending… ASCENDED

Reaction Shots

I really like Jupiter Ascending and while there are so many websites and tumblr posts about the movie. Here is my non-spoiler reasons to watch it:

1) It is diverse. Like, ACTUAL diverse.

2) Space!Dorian is in there. You know, from Dragon Age: Inquisition.

3) Space!Dinosaur-men

4) Teeny fangs wolfy Channing Tatum

5) The lead heroine aka Jupiter is like us. Like, really.

6) Such romance. Such lines. I know some people will be screaming my name, wondering if I influenced the directors in the romantic lines (I didn’t).

7) It has a lovely story of really, the message is: What you do is not who you are.

You can be a sweeper or some minion but that’s not who you are. You are much more than that. And vice versa.

You can be a rich noble but who you really are might be a douchcanoe.

8) ACTUAL STORY ABOUT FAMILY.

THANKS. THANKS FOR NUMBER 8 BY THE WAY. It really is. You know why?

It reminds me of times when we had Princess Bride, Legend (with the pantsless Tom Cruise) and Labyrinth.

IT HAD ENOUGH DRESS CHANGES AND PRETTY WARDROBE like it too. But yesss. All it needed was a ballroom dance scene. Was there a ballroom dance scene? I can’t remember because I was already stunned at the whole thing. PLEASE HAVE A BALLROOM DANCE SCENE IN EXTENDED VERSION.

There has to be one.

It’s like Sucker Punch with less suck.

While Sucker Punch made me go YES YES YES AND THEN no…no… nooo. After the fish dance peak in Sucker Punch, this just made me go “YOU DID NOT GO THERE. YES YOU DID GO THERE. OK. FINE. LET ME… SUPPORT YOU, JUPITER CAUSE you’re like a friend”.

Now.

For a spoilerific reaction WHY I liked Jupiter Ascending.

If you clicked this link straight without the read more, don’t read past my picture of my wrist with the word SPOILERS on it if you don’t want to be spoilered.

Or read my random ravings of the movie.

We clicked on Lazada

Hello friends! I got an opportunity from Lazada to try out their store!

Huzzah.

I’ve seen Lazada around… on the internets. It’s there when I scroll down on my Facebook page anyway in ads, so it’s pretty well known.

If you’re a hikikomori, a busy person who has no time to go shopping in an actual mall or are so bored but the urge to shop at midnight when most shopping malls are closed and don’t want to leave your bed, this site is for you.

Considering, I know most of my readers are either hikkis or people who are just all “Ain’t nobody got time for that”, I think this place will be ok for you guys.

I checked it out and went “Huh” because it really has a lot of things? I was pretty impressed with that. Their search engine is pretty good too.

Mind you, unlike beauty bloggers and whatnot, I’m into adventure and it’s really not often when I can just search for the items and BAM, it does show up on the website especially when this is a Singapore online shopping place.

ANYWAY, HERE IS A LIST of my recommended items you can get at Lazada!

By the way, since it’s near the holidays, you can do some online CNY shopping too. Less… rushed than being in packed malls.

Sarah’s Ultimate Adventure Top 10 List

1) Red Monster Power Bang!14.800mAh

Powerbank

You totally need a power bank for your phone especially if you’re going to spend the day outdoors.

Also, if you’re a gamer, you can always get a nintendo cable adapter to charge your 3ds. I’ve a fondness for Red Monster power banks, they’re really good and it’s got the word MONSTER in it so, RARRR POWERRR.

2) 21” Soprano Ukulele ( Black / Shine Finished )

Uke

Guys, of course I would check out if they have a ukulele in their store, due to obvious reasons.

There are expensive higher grade ones but this is a cheap one.

Since I know most of you might want to just get a really basic cheap one for yourselves/ your kids/ friends or might not really want to explore to the real life shops to get one. So hey, they have one!

Good for relaxing, playing music or serenading to your pets too. Or when you’re alone and waiting for your friends at a bus stop, at a staycation etc, you get the idea.

3) GoPro HERO (Local Warranty)

Gopro Hero

Of course, you are out on adventure or having fun. Perhaps some water sports or trekking through a nature reserve?

Or biking, skateboarding and well, the suggestions are endless.

If you want to stick it on a selfie stick and take pictures of yourself shopping, I guess that works too…

ANYWAY, this is a new Gopro Hero! It’s the most basic yet, if you’re a regular person who’s not a professional sportsperson or explorer, this is for you!

It’s got the protection of a gopro, a great format for uploading pictures and videos online AND it is cheaper than the other gopro versions.

4) (EXPORT) Canon IXUS 95 IS Pink + camera bag

Canon!

I’m a Canon girl. I’ve always used their Ixus for when I need to take pictures on adventure.

This is a great size to hide within your palm or just to take around for blogging.

Yes, if you wanna blog and not carry a DSLR, I prefer taking this around since it actually pretty tough too.

5) CamelBak Octane XCT Hydration Pack Black Skydiver

Hydration pack

Is your resolution to go for runs or marathons this year? You might want to invest in a hydration pack.

Look at its sleek design. I got one from Camelbak and it is very useful for those obstacle course marathons where you have to jump into mud, crawl under nets and climb over walls.

Really, get a freaking hydration pack because if you really want to go on marathons or sports events, it is really useful especially with the weather we have in Singapore.

Better hydrated than not.

6) Buff® National Geographic Series : Bless

Buff!

Buffs! You have no idea how useful they are. A lot of my friends have buffs now because they’re stuck to adventuring with me and really.

Sometimes all you need is just a buff.

7) Columbia Maxtrail Convertible Pants Blade

Pants!

The best pants for wandering around. They’re tough and light. Plus, you can zip off the lower part to convert them into shorts!

Need to do a lot of running or clambering through shrubbery? This pair of pants is Lara Croft worthy.

Upside, they’re really really good in our hot weather in Singapore.

8) Targus 15.6” City Fusion Laptop Backpack

Targus!

I ain’t going anywhere without a laptop or a netbook. Whether for work or for play, Targus is my main laptop bag to go.

It’s got space for your tech gear, a water bottle, random stuff.

Stuff in your gear for blogging on the go!

9) Maxpedition Jumbo™ Versipack® (Maroon-Khaki)

Adventure bag!

Heck them backpacks!

You know you’re going on a full day adventure somewhere and don’t want to carry unnecessary stuff. This is best for carrying a waterbottle/umbrella. Your main camera, a power bank, writing materials and even a little more like, your 3ds/PSP/handheld game.

Why do I recommend this one? Because you can easily RUN with this. Sling it around, push it to the back and jump over puddles, clamber over trees and you’ll be sure that this bag won’t rip.

Ok, you can also use this on a leisurely day too but it’s Maxpedition, it’s going to be tough and long lasting.

10)  Cardsharp Pocket Knife

Cardsharp

I must warn you guys not to be an idiot when purchasing this. Considering my readers are super responsible people, I would go yay on that.

I have a cardsharp and it folds into a card shaped thing.

You’ll never know if you need a knife to either cut art materials for cosplay or ingredients at a camp.

I use mine to cut slices of cheese…

It’s a foldable knife! Just don’t bring it on airplanes, it’ll be confiscated.

There you go, that’s my suggested list. It’s optimized for ADVENTURE AND FUNNNN.

~~~

Shopping at Lazada

Anyway, here’s a little tutorial on how to shop at Lazada!

A  tl;dr version is that, shopping at Lazada is easy and wow, ok. Their shipping is freaking fast.

 

Lazada!

First, go to Lazada.sg. And then… go search for whatever you want to buy. You’ll see they have helpful categories on the sidebar.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

Spider-Man 2!

I got to watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after being invited by Sony Pictures Singapore. THANKS SONY PICTURES!

This is going to be a SHORT review because no spoilers.

Firstly, if possible just go with the 3d option. This time the 3d isn’t a gimmick thing, it actually really works when you’re with him (Spider-Man). Just go. If you’re watching this movie, you might as well go for the 3d option because it is SO well done.

Secondly, ok this story has a VERY awesome soundtrack.

Some songs might be hipstery or well, from the trailer I think you can tell that there is a lot of dubstep going on here. Otherwise, there might be some songs or rather theme songs that make you go “Whaaaaaaaaat”?

Stan Lee of course makes an appearance and you can’t miss him this time because it’s so in your face that it is funny.

How do I describe Spidey 2. Ahhh…


 

Spidey 2, is GOOD.

There are some ACTION scenes that feels like it is just shoved into some points so that it won’t be called Spider-Man 2 aka Romance Adventures of a Webslinger but otherwise, just “Ahhhh” it is good. The actors and actresses are ALL very good.

From the trailers though, you can tell the thug is really “THUG” like he came out of the comics or cartoons being so over the top and so stereotypically Russian with bad accent.

There’s also a super stereotypical German scientist that it made us think of this. Ja? JA!

Also, I prefer this Spidey than the previous one because he is actually funny and witty even if there are tragic sides to him.

All the other geek sites are so going to tell you how it matches up with the comics and I won’t say it because. Really. It’s. Super. Spoilery. Also, lots of references to OTHER popculture things. Like. Harry Potter.

You might also notice a bunch of Sony products used in the movie for obvious reasons. In one scene, you would wonder if the laptop IS THAT DURABLE and if it is, wow ok. I would like it. Not to mention the internet connection for it.

In summary, just watch it. Those who read the comics/watched the cartoons will have quite a bunch of reactions for this movie. Those who don’t have a background will still go “WOW”.

When the movie finished, we went out of the cinema and talked a HECK LOAD about it and yes, it goes to show that this Spider-Man 2 is really going to go up the charts when it’s released in Singapore on May 1st!

Go book your tickets with your friends because yes. Yes, go with them to watch this for reasons.

Ps. If you stick around in the credits, you might notice a Wade Wilson. Yes, he is a real person but for those comic/cartoon fans, you might know the irony of this.
