Amazon India Buying

I usually used to buy mostly on eBay but I’ve recently become an Amazon convert for several things. Back in 2015 October I made my very first really big purchase on Amazon India and that was this laptop I am typing on. My Dell Vostro 3558 Corei3 15 in. But other than that it’s been mostly eBay. However I recently began using Amazon a lot more and signed up for Prime and well, I have bought a few things online. This weekend too I was browsing and going through things and I bought just a couple of things.

First up is the first Fidget Spinner I have bought. I want to see just what the fuss is all about. I also bought this neat looking football design bottle opener for my beers. Mind you I don’t have the items yet.

Amazon’s grocery list is also kinda good. My first purchases are these two 1 litre juices from a company, Paper Boat I have known about but haven’t seen in the supermarkets in my town. They have lots of products and they come in nice packaging.

Oh and I also bought these three items that you see here for a friend who was leaving the company I work for. I knew she wanted a diary/journal with a lock that you see here on the left. This one was the nicest that I could find. Then I bought a steel travel mug for her since she loves coffee as much as I do and a leather covered pencil stand as well. I also bought her a poster but I can’t find an image for that poster.

The Mummy

The Mummy is a 2017 American action-adventure directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie and Dylan Kussman, with a story by Kurtzman, Jon Spaihts and Jenny Lumet. It is a reboot of The Mummy franchise and the first installment in the Dark Universe film series. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe. Although I label this in the horror section, it is not a scary movie and it is not really a horror film.

In ancient Egypt, Princess Ahmanet is first in line to succeed her father Menehptre, only to be stripped of her birthright when his second wife gives birth to a son. Determined to claim the throne for herself, Ahmanet sells her soul to the god Set, who gives her a special dagger to transfer his spirit into a corporeal form. After murdering her family, Ahmanet attempts to sacrifice her lover to give Set physical form, but her father’s priests slay him and mummify Ahmanet, sentencing her to be buried alive for eternity. In current times Iraq, soldier-of-fortune Nick Morton and his partner Chris Vail accidentally discover the tomb of Ahmanet after staging an airstrike on an insurgent stronghold. He is confronted by archeologist Jenny Halsey, an ex-lover, who has the backing of the military who arrives with soldiers. Nick, Chris & Jenny are told by the commanding officer Colonel Greenway to quickly investigate the tomb.

Jenny concurs that it in fact is a prison and not a tomb, being far away from Egypt. After extracting Ahmanet’s sarcophagus from a pool of mercury, Nick’s superior, Colonel Greenway, places the sarcophagus on a transport plane headed to England. In-flight, Vail becomes possessed by Ahmanet’s power due to being bitten by a camel spider while inside the tomb. After attempting to open the sarcophagus, he kills Greenway and attacks the group before Nick shoots him dead. A huge wave of crows then assault the plane, causing it to crash and kill everyone on board except for Jenny, who is parachuted off the plane by Nick. Nick awakens a day later in a morgue in Oxford, and learns from Vail’s ghost that he has been cursed by Ahmanet, who seeks to use him as a replacement vessel for Set. Ahmanet herself escapes from the sarcophagus and begins feeding on rescue workers to regenerate her decomposed body. Turning the workers into zombie minions, she lures Nick and Jenny into a trap, forcing the two to fight off the minions as they unsuccessfully try to escape. At the last second, unknown soldiers appear and subdue her.

heir leader, Dr. Henry Jekyll, explains that Jenny is an agent of Prodigium, a secret society dedicated to hunting supernatural threats whose base is under the Natural History Museum of London, and contains such objects as the hand of the Gill-man and a vampire’s fanged skull. He confirms that Nick was cursed when he unlocked Ahmanet’s tomb and reveals his intention to complete her ritual and allow Set to possess Nick in order to destroy Set and end his evil for good. Meanwhile, Ahmanet takes control of a Prodigium technician using another camel spider that sneaked into the complex and frees herself from captivity, wreaking havoc, death, and destruction in the process. Jekyll succumbs to his own dark impulses and transforms into Edward Hyde, his murderous and psychotic alternative personality, nearly killing Nick before Nick manages to stop Hyde with the serum Jekyll uses to suppress himself. Nick and Jenny then escape Prodigium, while Ahmanet steals back the dagger, summons an army of deceased English crusaders to serve her, and creates a massive sandstorm that ravages London.

Guided by Vail, Nick and Jenny flee into the subway tunnels under London, but are attacked by Ahmanet’s minions. Ahmanet captures Jenny and drowns her, hoping to break her hold over Nick. Nick puts up a fight, but gives up and lets himself embrace Ahmanet, using it as a ruse to steal the dagger and stab himself. His body is possessed by Set, who proceeds to join Ahmanet to uphold his end of the bargain until he sees Jenny’s dead body, at which point Nick regains control and uses Set’s powers to suck the life out of Ahmanet, turning her back into a shriveled mummy. Nick uses Set’s powers to resurrect Jenny, saying goodbye before becoming overwhelmed by Set’s power and disappearing. Soon, Jenny links up with Dr. Jekyll and they discuss if Nick, now fused with Set, is good or evil and whose side he’s on as Ahmanet’s corpse is lowered into a locked pool of mercury within the Prodigium base for safekeeping. It is also revealed that Nick has resurrected Vail, who protests as to what they will do now, to which Nick responds, “Where is your sense of adventure?” The two ride off in the desert as a sandstorm trails behind them, with Jekyll telling her that as long as a part of Nick’s humanity remains, he will continue to search for a way to become human again.

It’s a good film but I think it will fail to really ignite interest in the public movie going audiences for a Universal Monsters franchise reboot. Every studio is thinking franchise these days with the success of Marvel and stuff. I dunno if this was the right way to do it for monsters under its shared universe Dark Universe. I give it a 7 outta 10! It received negative reviews from critics and has grossed $151 million worldwide.

American icon, actor Adam West (born William West Anderson), best known for his portrayal of the title role in the 1960s ABC series Batman and its theatrical feature film, has passed away at the age of 88 after a short battle with leukemia.

Slice Of Spice & Masala

One of the places that I really wanted to try was Slice of Spice near Saritha theatre. I had seen so many reviews of people praising their food that my taste buds were intrigued. Plus I live quite near them and not having been until today is something that I cannot find an excuse for. Today I wanted to go there for lunch before my usual weekend movie. I skipped breakfast and survived on only coffee and by 12:15 I was so hungry that my pangs made go to SoS and I ordered and sat waiting in anticipation. Things did not go as I planned.

After going through the menu I asked for al shrouf chicken and kubbos. After discussing with one of the servers, as he said that it would take some time, I asked him about what dishes can be brought quickly, and on his suggestion I ordered two pieces of al-fahm and I asked for kubbos. Another server asked me what I wanted to drink and I ordered a lemon iced tea off the menu. Something went wrong in the translation.

20170610_130122

They brought me a hot lemon tea which I said I didn’t want. He went back and 10 minutes later said that they didn’t have iced tea. So I ordered cold coffee. Then he brought me two chicken al-fam pieces and….naan. By now, I was too tired to disagree and being famished I started to dig in and my fingers expected juicy flesh of chicken …..and got a nice lathering of oily masala. The chicken was so coated in that masala that I could only taste the chicken in a few sections. Especially on the second piece, the masala was slapped on like — makeup on a clown or the makeup on a kathakali artist! I found it hard to swallow at one point.

I am sharing a pic take of the chicken and my plate at the end of the meal. If you took all that grease and liquefied it, you could lubricate the engines of a couple of cars. Saving grace was the cold coffee which was really good and the mayo that comes with the alfam.

20170610_131453

Even though I am so disappointed so many of you have raved about this place, I will go there other day and try something else. Who knows, maybe the chef was having an off day, broke up with his girlfriend and was listening to emo music in anguish as he cooked my meal. But I am not looking forward to tomorrow morning after coffee!

Till next time Slice of Spice.

Kerala to Re-open 3 & 4 Star Bars!!!

In a major move, the Kerala government on Thursday approved the new liquor policy under which all closed down bars in three and four -star hotels would be allowed to reopen. The timing of the bars has been changed from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., while in tourist places it will get an hour’s extension, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. The minimum age to drink liquor has also been raised from 21 years to 23. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, announcing the new policy, said he has full regard for the anti-liquor campaigners but “this is not a feasible and practical solution” and hence they were forced to come out with the new policy. He said toddy will be allowed to be served in star hotels, which was not allowed earlier.

These bars were closed two years ago during the previous Congress-led government, which sought to make Kerala a “dry” state with total prohibition on alcoholic drinks by 2023. Only five-star hotels were permitted to serve liquor. Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said prohibition has been ineffective around the world because the record shows people go to any extent to get high, even narcotics. His government would rather give priority to abstinence than a blanket ban. “The previous government’s liquor policy was a flop, statistics show. There was no let-up in consumption. Besides, we have to consider the plight of 40,000 employees working in the sector,” he said.

The Congress, which is in the opposition now, rejected the chief minister’s remarks. “Our government closed the outlets in view of the alarming consumption rate. This government removed all restrictions. It is suicidal,” party leader Ramesh Chennithala said. Church organisations too criticised the government’s move, saying it is chasing money at the expense of people’s health. Liquor revenue accounts for around 25% of the Rs 40,000 crore the state earns from various taxes and services.

Never Again

Have you ever gone to a new place or tried a new experience and thought to yourself, “I’m never doing that again!” Tell us about it.

I’m never going to be fooled again. I’m tired of being open and inviting hurt and pain and that part is just so over. I’m tired, jaded and I am too old for such drama and bullshit and I am just not going to let it happen. I don’t want to end up hurt and feeling like I’m the one left in the dirt.

I give up on feeling bad and empty and I feel better when I did that. I do not want to be the one sitting in the dark and wondering where everything went wrong and worry and brood. Not that guy anymore, I have better things to do. And the whole point is that you just do not trust too much. Be it with friends, relationships, family and your work. The number one thing should be you and everything else should be secondary.

Cynical? Jaded? Resentful? Talking wounded? Vindictive? Maybe but it’s better than being sad and sorry for yourself. At the end of the day you can laugh and move on.

My Secret Admirer

You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from — and why did they send it to you?

Well, I’m hoping it’s this bodacious babe I keep giving longing stares at everytime I see her at the office cafeteria. She is so hot and sexy with those eyebrows and eyes and red, pouty lips and those curves on that body. I have no idea what her name is and have been trying to find out and also the nerve to go and talk to her.

I find her hot and I find her desirable and I wanna make babies with her. But ofcourse, especially as she works in the same office as I do, I wouldn’t dare do anything so bold and brazen but if I do get an little chance, I will introduce myself and make friends with her. Once and it was a few months ago, I opened the door for her so she could pass first, as I am a gentleman and always do that, and she looked at me and smiled a grateful and thankful smile at me (oh how long that euphoria lasted) like in “chivalry isn’t dead?” but that’s been the extent of my interaction with her.

So I would hope it’s from her. She wants to have coffee…..tea…..and me! Not particularly in any order! And she wants to make babies with me. I am terrible, I know. And I make no excuses for it.

Resident Evil : The Final Chapter

Here is another movie franchise which started out so well and gave us a couple of really good action-oriented horror films but then dwindled into “what the heck is going on; do the film makers even know what they are telling?” territory. Much like the other movie series I recently posted about – UnderworldResident Evil had become a shambles. I still enjoy watching Milla Jovovich kick ass plus she is hot as hell, so I loans no credit check direct lenders watched.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is a 2016 science fiction action horror film written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. It is the sequel to Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) and the sixth and final installment in the Resident Evil film series, which is loosely based on the Capcom survival horror video game series Resident Evil. The film stars Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Shawn Roberts, Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, and Iain Glen.

Picking up immediately three weeks after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. Alice then encounters the Red Queen, who tells her that she must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation has developed an airborne anti-virus which will kill every organism infected by the T-virus. In a race against time, Alice is captured by Dr. Isaacs, long thought to be dead, who reveals that the previous incarnation was a clone of his true self. Alice escapes and arrives first in Raccoon City, where she joins forces with Claire Redfield. After holding off Dr. Isaacs’ undead army, Alice, Claire and a team of survivors make their way towards the Hive. They again encounter the Red Queen, who tells them the origins of the T-virus: it was created by James Marcus, the founder of the Umbrella Corporation to save his daughter, Alicia, from an ailment that caused her to rapidly age. James was then betrayed by his business partner, Dr. Isaacs, and killed by Albert Wesker.

Dr. Isaacs and the board of the Umbrella Corporation then intended to release the T-virus on purpose in order to cleanse the world, save the rich and powerful with cryogenics in The Hive, and later rebuild it as they desire. After confronting Wesker and Dr. Isaacs at the bottom of the Hive, Alice also learns her own true nature: she is a clone of the original and still-living Alicia Marcus, who was unable to live a normal life due to her condition. Dr. Isaacs clone brought the army of undead towards Alice and the real Dr. Isaacs. Dr. Isaacs clone could not believe that he was a clone hence stabbed the real Dr. Isaacs to death. Alice then releases the anti-virus, eliminating all infected by the T-virus. Alice survives, and gains the memories of Alicia Marcus as a reward in order to reclaim the childhood she never had. The series ends with Alice riding a motorcycle to places unknown while being chased by BOW’s, stating that her job isn’t finished yet and that it will take several years for the anti-virus to circle the globe.

I have forgotten so much of the actual storyline throughout the 6 films that I had to go back and read about them. It’s all muddled and messed up and it all feels like they are making stuff up as they go along. Kinda just like Underworld which is obvious. Again too bad as I really liked the first two films and they way that they were headed. I give this film a 6 outta 10. But it’s lovely to see both Ali Larter & Milla again.

Make Me Smile

If you’re feeling blah, what is the one thing you do that you can count on to put a smile on your face?

There are a few things that never fail. My fav sit-coms are a sure way of making me smile no matter what. Frasier, Friends, Corner Gas, Everybody Loves Raymond, Will & Grace, The Big Bang Theory & Little Mosque On The Prairie. The Simpsons too. These shows will never fail to make me smile and laugh out loud.

How about some movies? Off the top of my head Abbott & Costello films, Wayne’s World, School Of Rock, etc etc. Those films will always make me smile. Some of my fav non-comedy films will also work. I just have to think of them much less put them and they bring a smile to my face.

Reading my old blog posts and thinking about the good, fun times also tend to do that. That’s kind of what I still maintain a blog for.

Uniform

Uniform. I think the person who submitted the one word prompt probably meant it for another reason but when I think of the word uniform, I think of the school uniforms I wore in my 3 schools.

I was born in Kuwait and I went to two schools during my 11 years there. My first school was called Carmel School, run by nuns mostly from India (a lot of the schools in Kuwait were owned and run by Indians) and our school uniforms were dark blue pants and lighter blue shirts with dark blue ties (blouses and skirts for the girls). And during the winters we had dark blue sweaters. I went to this school until the 4th grade.

My second school, New Indian School, was only for grade 5 as I left Kuwait in 1987. So for 1986-87 I went for the afternoon classes for boy (they had segregation for boys and girls past the 4th grade, a rule in Kuwait not by Indians) and we had white shirts, blue ties and dark blue pants for boys. In the winter, dark blue sweaters. And then I moved to India.

For the next 5 years I went to Hill Valley High School (until grade 10 after which I went to a pre-degree 2 year course in a college, instead of 11 & 12 grades in a school, which were the norm back then). Our uniform was bottle green pants, a light cream colour shirt with green spots and a dark green tie with the school logo in yellow! People could spot us coming from a mile away!

Instant Celebrity

If you could be a famous person for a day, who would you be? Why?

Why would I aurora loan want to be some other famous person? I want to still be me but famous and popular and stinking filthy rich. But I still want to be me! There’s no one else I’d rather be. But I want to be so loved and so popular and — did I mention rich? – and so desirable and sexy that women and teenage girls will wet their panties as soon as I arrive before them in person and flash a smile in their direction.

If I could change places with a famous person who is living, I’d pick ……. Hugh Hefner. Man does he know how to live and what a life! Surrounded by all those Playboy Playmates in his mansion 24/7! I’d be swimming in perfect bodies all day long and all night long. He is my hero and I’d want to swap places with him right now or even 10 years back. That is the life to live.

Otherwise, I’d want to make my own crazy rich, indulgent and wild life. With busty & gorgeous women holding on my arms, and other body parts, having a party.

Information To Change Your Life!

Walking down the street, you encounter a folded piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.

There I am walking down the street minding my own business and as I walk on by, I spy a big piece of paper lying on the sidewalk. Now usually I do not pick up stray bits of paper but this one was large, A4 size and it was neatly folded and lying on the clean section of the sidewalk and it had my name printed in bold, large font on the side that was facing top.

The text on the paper tells me about the existence of aliens, who have been here for 1000s of years and who have influenced the lives of us humans and have steered the course of our history. It quotes evidences and where I can find them around the world and with details all given. It tells me that I can easily find all the evidence I need to prove that this is true and how most of the religious figures from history were aliens. And that they have plans to come out and annihilate mankind and keep the planet, animals and birds and all it’s resources for themselves.

Finally the paper tells me that they are watching and to trust no one and that to be on my guard. I fold it and put it in my pocket and suspiciously stare at people who pass me by. They are watching me!

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is a 2017 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is the fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins, with a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and a story by Heinberg, Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs. Gal Gadot stars as the titular character with Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen and Elena Anaya in supporting roles. Wonder Woman is the first live action theatrical film starring the character, following her first live action theatrical appearance in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

This is not your usual DC or Marvel superhero fare. It is more like a World War 1 movie (with gorgeous cinematography) with a supernatural angle in it. You can say a WW1 movie mixed with lots of elements of Captain American The First Avenger. Starting of in a gorgeous locale that makes you wish you could live there and moving on to the battle front and villages devastated by battle, Wonder Woman is a really good film to watch. The first part of the film is about a young Diana, who years to learn how to fight from her aunt General Antiope sister of Hippolyta, Diana’s mother. Her mother, the queen of the Amazons, forbids it but aunty is more than willing and feels obligated to do so. Diana sneaks out and learns with her aunt and finally her other agrees until a grown up Diana almost blasts everyone with her power. She rescues an American spy serving with British intelligence, Steve Trevor, who was undercover in the Ottaman kingdom, from the ocean as his plane is shot down.

The Amazons engage and kill the German soldiers in pursuit of him, but Antiope dies protecting Diana. to borrow money Interrogated with the Lasso of Truth, Steve reveals that he is an Allied spy in World War I and has stolen information from a weapons facility in the Ottoman Empire run by German general Erich Ludendorff, whose scientist Doctor Maru is producing a new, deadlier form of mustard gas. Although the Amazons won’t interfere, Diana believes that Ludendorff is infact Ares, the god of war corrupted mankind and killed all the other gods except Zeus. Led to believe that a dying Zeus had left the godkiller, a knife that can kill Ares, with the Amazon, she steals it and goes with Steve to London. In London, Steve delivers Maru’s notes to his superiors at the Imperial War Cabinet, including Sir Patrick Morgan, who is trying to negotiate an armistice with Germany. Steve believes Ludendorff will complete and use the gas regardless of an armistice, and Diana concludes Ludendorff is Ares himself and slaying him will end the war.

With Sir Patrick’s blessing, Steve and Diana travel to the front lines to stop Ludendorff, accompanied by Steve’s team: spy Sameer, marksman Charlie, and smuggler Chief. Arriving at the Western Front in Belgium, the group’s progress is halted by enemy trenches, until Diana pushes alone through the German lines, rallying the allied forces behind her to liberate a village from German control. Diana and the team celebrate the freedom of the villagers, and Diana grows close to Steve. Learning that Ludendorff will attend a gala at a nearby castle, Steve infiltrates the party and is followed by Diana, who intends to kill Ludendorff. Steve stops her to avoid jeopardizing the mission to destroy the chemical stores, and shortly after Ludendorff uses the gas to bomb the nearby village. Diana is devastated that Steve interfered, blaming him for the loss of life. In rage, Diana pursues Ludendorff to a complex where the gas is being loaded into a bomber to attack London. Diana fights and slays Ludendorff, but is stunned when his death does not stop the war.

Sir Patrick appears to her, revealing that he is the true Ares; he tells her that though he has subtly influenced them to destroy themselves, humans themselves contain the impulse to cause war and violence. As they fight, Ares attempts to convince Diana that humanity does not deserve to be saved, and reveals that her mother lied about her origins: Diana herself is Zeus’ weapon, his youngest child. As Ares overpowers Diana, Steve hijacks the bomber containing the gas and sacrifices himself to incinerate it at a safe distance. Inspired by Steve’s selflessness and his final words, Diana dedicates herself to defending mankind and summons her power to finally destroy Ares and spare humanity. In London, the team solemnly celebrates the end of the war. In the present day, Diana e-mails to Wayne thanking him for the photograph of her and Steve and reaffirms her mission to protect all life.

Really an awesome movie to watch. Gal Gadot kicks ass and how she is gorgeous! Totally kissable lips. I give the film an 8.5 outta 10!

Busy, Busy Day

So like I said yesterday, today I was a little busy but I am glad that I could come back home by 5pm so I can relax on this lazy feeling, dull but nice & cool rainy day. It didn’t rain too much but the weather is so cool nowadays that I need to switch on my water heater before I take a shower otherwise my balls will be cold. The agenda like I mentioned earlier is buying cloth for new pants and find a tailor to stitch them for me, watch Wonder Woman, lunch and shopping for groceries. I added buying medicines in there too.

Thank the internet and software gods for Uber because I did save some money in the travel. Had I taken autorikshaws today I would have been charged much more but because of the discounts I get, I was charged 30% less for each ride. And I took 6 of them today. That was the most I have every taken. Anyways, I left home without eating breakfast and went to buy some medicine near Medical Trust. Then it was off to Center Mall and to Cinepolis where I watched Wonder Woman at the 11:15 am show. Once the movie was over, at around 1:45 or so I went to Cocoa Tree in Avenue Regent for lunch, which was fish n chips and a smoothie.

Then I went to Seemati and to the Men’s Studio section to buy some black pant material for me. I walked over to a tailor store a few minutes away and after measurements and giving them my order, I took another Uber to Panampilly Nagar as I wanted to buy groceries from Farm Gold supermarket. After my shopping, I came  back home. Tired and wanting some coffee and snacks. It’s been a busy day.

Food Review #166

Classy Beef lasgna from French Toast Cafe & Bakery with a Hazelnut Latte. The latte was weak and not good at all and the lasagna could have used some more seasoning but it was still good.
