Unbeatable 激戰

MMA fans~ here's something that might interest you.

Brought to you by Tune Talk, the sponsor for ONE FC Championship which will be happening in November, here's Unbeatable. Read till the end to find out what surprise I have for MMA fans. Don't worry, it won't be a very very long post.

Wee~~ free popcorn and drinks too :D

Unbeatable is a Hong Kong Chinese movie about MMA, directed by Dante Lam, starring Nick Cheung (张家辉), Eddie Peng (彭于晏), Mei Ting (梅婷). Here's something to get you started if you're still lost.

It's a drama film about mixed martial art, revolving around Nick Cheung and Eddie Peng. Eddie wanting his father to stand up from his bankruptcy, asked Nick to help him train so that he can go for the tournament. Nick was a champion last time, but because of something happened, he forgot about his passion for mixed martial art and the purpose of him doing it. Slowly he regained his passion and found what was lost. Still amazed me how Nick did his move during the final.

It is a pretty straight forward film, no puzzle to be solved, don't have to think so much. Suitable for family to watch, but not really recommended for kids as during the fights it is pretty brutal.

But it's true, never give up on your passion or whatever you like. No matter for what reason.    

Here's some extra info for you if you read my whole post.
Remember my previous post about MIMMA? Guess what? MIMMA Season 2 will be announced end of this year! Can't wait!

The Wolverine

It wasn't as bad as I thought it is. Initially thought it was gonna be really long and draggy. Well ok, it was kinda long since it's a 2 hour-long movie.

Check out the trailer in case you haven't watch it yet:

Directed by James Mangold (who also directed Knight and Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz) , The Wolverine is an action movie about wolverine from Xmen (duh! *rolls eyes*), where he got "invited" by someone he saved last time back in Japan to see him before he pass away, but things wasn't as simple as he thought. A trip to Japan which almost cost him his life.

Starring Hugh Jackman as Logan aka the wolverine, Rila Fukushima as Yukio (the red hair chick with bangs), Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Will Yun Lee as Harada. 

The whole film takes place at different places around Japan, except at the beginning of it, where Yukio found Logan and managed to convince him to follow her back to Japan.

Like most action movies, expect it to be full of actions, explosions, shootings. The parts I like are the fights on top of the bullet train and the final fight towards the end. I jumped a bit during the last part because it wasn’t something I’m expecting.

Another part which I've noticed, is when Logan and Yukio was on the plane, on the way to Japan, they are sitting at the opposite direction of each other, showing that they are not in the same "group". What I'm trying to say is, they have different objective at that time. At the end of the film, they are sitting facing the same direction together, showing that they are now on par with each other and they both have the same objective now.

There’s one part which I don’t really like though, which is the part where Yashida (the old man who wanted to see Logan before he dies) who was lying on this bed, and it will automatically go up and down tracing the body movement of Yashida to help him get up. It looked really really fake, and yes of course I know it’s CGI, but it’s kinda too obvious.

Overall, it was a not bad film for me. I’ll give it a 6.5/10.

Homemade Japanese Potato Salad

As a fan of Japanese food, there's one thing that I will always always order no matter which Japanese  restaurant I go to, Japanese Potato Salad. Sounds cheap? After trying to make it myself, I can tell you this. YOU THINK IT'S CHEAP AND EASY TO MAKE AH!??

I apologize if I sounded rude earlier. But serious, it's actually quite time consuming.

Anyway, all thanks to my friend, Stanley, for providing me the recipe for it because he knows I love it a lot.

Usually I'll make ONE BIG POT. Yea.. can last for a week. LOL.

And here's the recipe:


4 medium potatoes
1 carrot
1 zucchini (Japanese cucumber)
8 tablespoon of Japanese mayo
2 teaspoon of Zirashi (Japanese mustard)
1 tablespoon of milk
black pepper

1) Boil the potatoes for 20-30 minutes (or until its soften).

p/s: you can do Step 2 later while waiting for the potatoes to cool off after boiling if you want to.

2) While waiting for the potatoes to boil, slice carrot in half moon shape and simmer in hot water for 5 minutes. Slice the zucchini (Japanese cucumber), put roughly a teaspoon of salt all over the zucchini and leave it for 15 minutes. Then squeeze out all the water from the zucchini.

3) After done boiling the potatoes, peel the skins roughly. Mash it in a bowl gently, so that there are some chunks left.

4) Add in Japanese mayo, milk, and Zirashi (Japanese mustard). Stir evenly and gently.

5) Then, add in zucchini (Japanese cucumber) and carrot.

6) Mix everything up.

7) Add in pepper to taste.


If you're wondering Zirashi (Japanese mustard) is which one, please refer to the picture below.

The one on the right (orange box) is Zirashi.

Japanese mayo is this one.

Zirashi (Japanese mustard) can be bought at Jusco, or Daiso.

Japanese mayo can be bought at Jusco, or Shojikiya.

Other ingredients can be bought at any supermarket / market.

This is how I like mine. I add in cherry tomatoes, some sunflower seeds, and at the bottom is coral reef salad. 

Of course you can always customize it yourself by adding whatever things you like (But don't too over la) :)
