I attended a seminar on Friday (24 August 2007) - MSC Malaysia Creative Multimedia Lecture Series #8, by MDEC and Elemental Ventures Sdn Bhd.

There were 2 sessions in this seminar. First one was by
Kevin Eastman - the creator of TMNT.

He was sharing about his experience in the industry:
"From Sketch to Screen: The TMNT & Heavy Metal experience".

some of the slides, Kevin sharing how he and Peter transformed from their ideas from sketches and become real life characters

There was a 10 min break, I manged to see Kevin up close & personal, and took a picture of him. AWESOME!!!

Second half of the seminar, was presented by Joe Pearson - President of Epoch Ink Animation.

He was sharing the business experience & challenges, from the creative point of view. How globalisations had affected the world, and how & why we shouldn't and couldn't ignore it.

I say I had a good time attending this seminar.


My Thoughts
Had the opportunity to listen 1st hand experience from real gurus are inspiring.

This isn't just a seminar, but also a signing ceremony between MDEC & 20 over local and overseas creative content agency (such as animation studios, distributors, film makers, post house, etc).

This is a good sign, marking a new start and era for the creative industry in Malaysia.

Our government believes that creative content will be a new economy, that will generate new income & new opportunities for us. And currently making effort to educate, invest and pushing for this area.

I hope this will be a success (not just talk~talk~talk only), because it really looks promising in Malaysia, with the gurus and pioneers from the states to lead & guide our talents here.

There'll be 2 major Animated series project, based here.

Gyakuten Saiban 2 (Best Price) / Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All

This is the second part of the Gyakuten Saiban / Phoenix Wright series. 5 New stories/cases, with colorful cast of characters include both new and familiar faces.

New Features

  • "Psyche-Lock" feature – some witnesses may be keeping the truth under tight lock and key (aka the "Psyche-Lock" state), so in order to break them down, successfully open up their Psyche-Locks with a series of correct questions or catch them on their inconsistent testimony;

  • Life Bar - represents Phoenix's status in court – by presenting incorrect evidence or following misguided attempts to break Psyche-Locks, Phoenix's life bar will go down; the only way to regain this stat is to successfully open a witness's Psyche-Lock;

  • Presenting "Profiles" - now "Profiles" is part of the evidence that you can present/to support your investigations/examinations;

My Thoughts
The story doesn't really link back to the first title, in terms of story development, perhaps a few old main characters that from the previous title. Generally I would say, it's still ok, for you to start/play with GS / PW 2.

Good stories, same old good illustrations.

Difinitely, another "MOST STUCKED" DS Game for you.

Synopsis 故事摘要: - taken from
Powerful Maya kingdoms ruled in the Americas for more than 1,000 years, forging expansive cities, constructing sky-piercing pyramids and building an impressively advanced society of extraordinary cultural and scientific achievement. Then, in a flash of history, this world collapsed. All that was left behind were a few jungle-covered pyramids and a tantalizing mystery. Now, 500 years after the end of the Mayan civilization, director Mel Gibson delves into this never-explored realm to create a modern screen adventure which unfolds like a timeless myth about one man's quest to save that which matters to him the most in a world on the brink of destruction: APOCALYPTO. (find out more).

My thoughts 我的感言:
Even though this might be just how the film makers, visualised/pictured how the Mayan Civilisation was 1,000 years ago. Because no one actually lived to see/tell how it was like.

However, I must say, the team did a brilliant job! You can see they did their homework, major reseach were involved. The team managed to illustrate the lives, cultures, costumes, architectures, language (even I don't know any Mayan language), etc, in details, reflecting how it was like back in those days.

The movie is so realistic, adrenaline pumping to the max, beautiful, eye-opening and brutal.

Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 押忍!闘え!応援団

Someone's life in town has just turned disaster. When they cry out "OUENNNNDANNNNN!", a trio of uniformed "motivational soldiers" or "cheer squad", a.k.a. "Ouendan" will show up (out of nowhere) in response to the problems and bring peace to the world.

It's a rhythmic game, where you play along with the music (i.e. featured song), try to complete the game without any mistakes and getting PERFECT score in every level/story by:

  • tapping the "Hit Markers";

  • sometimes slide to the "Phrase Markers";

  • do the final spin on the "Roll Markers";

Each level is featured with one J-Pop hits, and different problem/crisis. All the problems are presented in a funny & hillarious way, manga style comic strip.

You can also link up to 4 players in multiplayer game, in either Versus or Co-Op mode.

The music featured in Ouendan are mainly popular J-Pop Hits from 1990s to 2000s. Pretty nice & cool songs.

For track listing, read HERE.

My thoughts
Unbelievable fun, hillarious, challenging & addictive. Not to mention, a list of nice J-Pop songs to listen to.

Wildchild's gathering+Lee San's Birthday

Wildchild attended a Senior's (from her secondary school) wedding dinner over the weekend (I wasn't invited... phew~). After that, we all went to Wong Kok at SS2 to meet and catch up with some of her secondary schoolmates. 'cos leesan (her high school friend) and Tim (leesan's man) were in town (from SG).

And it was leesan's birthday too. ^0^

Anyway, we were the 1st to reach. Wildchild had made reservation earlier, and kind enough, Wong Kok gave us the "chill out" area.

Since it's leesan's birthday, I ordered the "Wong Kok Birthday Special" for her. When the "special" arrived, both leesan and Tim were shock! LOL~

It's always nice to attend a school gathering (even though, it's not mine). Listening to old time stories. LOL~
