Review: Criminal Minds Season 9 Premiere (Episode 1 "The Inspiration")

Two months ago, I was on a crazy Criminal Minds marathon. I rewatched and finished eight seasons in about 4-5 weeks. So, I'm very very happy when Criminal Minds Season 9 was released just a few days ago and I watched it yesterday! Before this, the show had released several teasers for fans so that they know what they can expect in this season. Read all about it here (link).. So much rewards for long-term fans in-terms of story line! So excited :P

Anyway, I have this random thought of posting a review of the new episodes every Saturday... so... let's see if I can keep this up :P

Low quality video :( Sorry, but this is the best I could find on Youtube lol.

Episode 1 Review (Spoiler ahead!)

Image source: (link)

The episode started off with JJ and Morgan in a car chase and a lorry was heading their way...and...flashback begins. In this episode, we learnt that Hotch has too much to do - paperwork AND staying active in the field. He's still deciding whether to take over as BAU's Section Chief (since Strauss died in the Season 8 episode finale, the seat is now vacant) and he would have more time to spend with Jack but he won't be on the field with his team.

The first episode of the season is on cannibalism (obsession with the praying mantis, as deciphered by Reid) coupled with ritualistic kills.. not the first on the show. I would admit this though - the portrayal of cannibalism in this episode was more...scary? The unsub was having some hallucinations about his crush and in one of the scenes she was seen moving around the room like spiderman (the posing and walking on ceilings).. Err...

I was wondering why the unsub's mother was so familiar..and so I googled and found out it was a guest appearance by Camryn Manheim. I recognised her from the Ghost Whisperer. Apparently, critics are very fond of her performance and thought her character was underused. Maybe more next week?

Anyway, the episode ends in a cliffhanger! If I had not mistaken, this is the very first time the BAU made a mistake for getting the wrong guy! The ending quote by Hotch explains it all : Josh Billings once wrote, "There are two things in life for which we are never truly prepared: twins."

I'd like to see more of the team but most of the screen time was given to the unsub instead. I would think it's because the producers wanted to build a solid storyline to play with for Part 2. Can't wait for the next episode and the rest of the season cause I'd really want to learn more stories on the team ; )

McDonald's Malaysia Sweet Deals Desserts Card

McDonald's Malaysia just released the Sweet Deals Desserts Card last week, which is available for purchase in all McDonald's outlets except the ones located in Genting Highlands, Langkawi and airports. The card is sold at RM10.

The card is rather flimsy, not like those proper card. Nevertheless, for RM10, you can enjoy up to 25% off on selected McDonald's dessert.

The breakdown of the discount you enjoy (all price stated is excluding tax):
Sundae Cone: RM 0.80 instead of RM 1.00
Apple Pie: RM 1.70 instead of RM 2.20
Sundae (Chocolate/Strawberry): RM 2.50 instead of RM 3.00
Oreo McFlurry: RM 2.95 instead of RM 3.95

The card comes in a sealed envelope and inside, you'll also get THREE free coupons to enjoy your favourite sundae (either Chocolate or Strawberry). Yes, I already used up one though not on the spot :P

Side track a bit let me tell you a story about the incident I encountered when I purchased this card. Sadly, when I bought this card at the Taman Connaught outlet, the staffs were incompetent. I repeatedly told them I want to buy a Sweet Deals card and wanted to use one of the coupons on the spot. The person taking order seemed puzzle although I kept saying to him "There are three coupons in the card right? I want to use one of them now. I want a chocolate sundae using the coupon". But the dude kept insisting that there were only TWO coupons and he said "Ok ok" although I was being charged RM 3.00 for the chocolate sundae -_-''' INCOMPETENT. So nevermind, he asked his colleague for help and the colleague was puzzled too. Oh my goodness. Then at last, the colleague understood what I was saying and she asked me to open the envelope and pass her the coupon -_- I was already frustrated at the service because I was queuing for more than 25 minutes and there were less than 5 person in front of the me. -_______-; So, I said, "Nevermind, just charge me for it, I'm sick and tired of waiting." Lol, yay me. Anyway, it took another 5-10 minutes before they started to make the ice cream for me. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻. I'm never coming back to this outlet for the next 6 months.

Well, this card is worth it although it's only valid till 31st December this year. Paying less than RM1 for Sundae Cone? Any time man...any time ;)

Food: Killer Gourmet Burgers (KGB), Bangsar

This post is long overdue. Went to Killer Gourmet Burgers (KGB) at Jalan Telawi, Bangsar back in mid-July. It was a rainy evening..I thought it was a better ideas to have steamboat instead of burgers :P

Like a lot of gourmet burger stores nowadays, I believe that KGB is also run by college and university students from KL/PJ area. However, this is just my suspicion, not confirmed.

Upon arrival, the place was packed and seats were really limited. So, we were contemplating if we should just tapau and go somewhere else to eat. We took awhile to decide because we came all the way and brave the drizzling rain, we didn't want to tapau if we can because it kills the experience. 

So finally after giving much thought to it (like some very serious problem), we thought we'll just wait for an empty table. Meanwhile, we queued up and the line got a little more longer after us.

The menu. Sorry, a bit small but you can click and save as for a larger image and zoom.

Opening hours. As you can see, the notice is written on a A4 paper and just sticked to the wall just like that. I'm guessing the opening hours are rather irregular because it's run by students?...Schedule changes each semester? Hahahaha, I'm speculating again. I guess the best thing to do before going to KGB is to check with the owners if they are open by calling: 03-2201 1220 or post on its Facebook Page: KGB Bangsar

After a while, we did get our seats outside (thank God for the good weather). And so, began waiting for our burgers. Definitely took awhile because of the crowd and some confusion with the orders..but it finally came!

 The Bash (KGB's recommended burger) - RM18.90

Coca-Cola in bottles is just too cool.

:P Sorry can't remember all the burger's name..the problem with not blogging on time. LOL. In all honesty, I'm not a gourmet burger lover :P KGB's burgers was decent and of course, different and special. My friends said it was good though. Usually when I have gourmet burgers, it tends to get messy. Not sure if my skills improved or it's just KGB's Bash but I did not make a mess that night :P Thumbs up for non-messy burgers!!!

I guess the biggest turn-off for me is the price. I'm a student with limited budget and to pay RM20+ ++ for a meal (KGB's recommended burger cost RM18.90, plus drinks and fries would cost another RM5.50) like this is luxury that I can only afford once a while (or when I win something :P) ..

Burgers are not something that I would crave for. However for burger enthusiasts, this is definitely another place that you should mark on your burger-calendar :D

The Noob Learns Adobe Illustrator

I'm learning how to use Adobe Illustrator this semester, which is pretty cool minus the number of things that I need to do for homework. Attempted to draw Super Mario for my first tutorial. How?

Not bad right?

Learning how to use gradient tool. I know my shadow looks super cacat. I beh tahan myself but this is the best I can do so learning typeface and assignment is to design a logo. Homaigersh. #challengeaccepted .. I need to squeeze out my creative juices for this semester. Eh I not bad wun okay.. at least I kinda drew a Mahathir portrait before :P

More updates soon, hopefully! 


Well, not literally. I was on-air for less than 1 minute. Hahaha! I won the #FLYFMGOC (as in FlyFM's Game of Clues contest) :D last week. I shamelessly recorded myself since it's my first time my voice is on-air, must perasan sikit. So you can hear how sucky my voice is when it's recorded and it's one of the reasons why I refuse to be on videos. 

Anyhows, the contest is still running ^_^ It's pretty simple. If you're an avid social media user like me, try out, who might win a minimum of RM500 :D 

Video of the Week: Coldplay - Atlas

I can already imagine how awesome this song would be as a soundtrack :3 
Giler feeling.

Video of the Week: Ylvis - The Fox

Okay, I haven't heard of Ylvis until this video became quite viral ever since it was released. At first, I was thinking - not bad, this could be a song where children learn what sounds do animals make. LOL. But then I thought that overall, this video is quite inappropriate. 

Anyway, I think this song would be popular for awhile. "What does the fox say" part sounds a bit vulgar.. if you know what I mean.. Hmm, which reminds me of Psy's "Gentleman" where the lyrics go "Mother, father, gentleman".. sounds vulgar too.

Is this some recipe that the music industry is following? Sucky lyrics but catchy and vulgar. :/

#shareMYcokelah Limited Edition Boxset!

I'm sure the phrase "CHUP! Coca-Cola" is not a stranger to a lot of us. And the latest campaign slogan for Coca-Cola Malaysia is Chup! Coca-Cola refresh lah together-gether. Read about the campaign here (link)

So I just went to collect the #shareMYcokelah limited edition boxset. And gotten a letter. Teehee.

Upon opening the letter, I saw this - #lenglui. Oh thank you, Coca-Cola Malaysia. 
I'm flattered. Hahaha!

Cute letter. :D 

Amazing packaging! All cans are filled with liquid.

Sorry for the reflection! #syoknya #terrernya #beb #macha #fuyoh #lenglui #bestgiler 

I'm very thankful and proud to say I'm the owner of this limited edition boxset. Only 25 sets available in the whole of Malaysia - all limited to collectors. I'm aware there's more than several dozens of 'power collectors' (as in super hardcore collectors) in Malaysia and some of them didn't even get to own this. So I'm super happy. Many thanks to the president of the Coca-Cola Malaysia Collectors, Wong for liaising for the 24 of us! :D

Edit: I'm aware that Coca-Cola Malaysia also gave out 30 boxes to influential figures in Malaysia (bloggers and Youtubers alike or other celebs perhaps..). So that makes a total of 55 boxsets in Malaysia. Still too many :3 If you know anyone who received this but wants to sell it, lemme know! :D 

For those who wants to get these cans, the hashtag cans are already available at certain retailers though I'm not sure exactly where because I haven't seen any yet. The official launch for this campaign will only take place mid-next week but I've been told that the cans were seen as early as 17 August at the Good Vibes Festival. So hurry, get these cans before they are gone and replaced with other design. ; )
