Gorillaz - Plastic Beach

Not all the songs from Gorillaz can be digested by me.

Basically, I love 19-2000, Clint Eastwood, and Feel Good Inc., but sorry for the rest of the songs in their albums, even the first single Stylo in this new album.

For their latest album Plastic Beach, I would like to share some of the songs which I like:
- Superfast Jellyfish Ft. Gruff Rhys & De La Soul
- Empire Ants Ft. Little Dragon
- Some Kind of Nature Ft. Lou Reed
- On Melancholy Hill
- Plastic Beach Ft. Mick Jones & Paul Simon
- To Binge Ft. Little Dragon

Some Kind of Nature Ft. Lou Reed is catchy. Lou Reed is great to be featured with Gorillaz, just as great as featuring with The Killers. Isk, remind me Tranquilize again, vocal of Brandon Flower + Lou Reed = PERFECT

Empire Ants and To Binge featuring Little Dragon are nice. Little Dragon's vocalist is a Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano who got a seductive voice.

I would say a big NO to those featuring Mos Def and Snoop Dogg.

On Melancholy Hill is just tooooooooooo gooooooooood. For me, it is the best of the entire album. It is not a hard-to-sing song, doesn't require any supersonic high "dolphin pitch" or rock the lung out or whatsoever, but the rhythm is relaxing, enjoying and feel like twisting my body and head slowly leading by the rhythm itself. I can repeat playing On Melancholy Hill for 1 hour. Really never expected Gorillaz will come out with this type of surprisingly nice hit, just like the surprise given by Oasis in Dig Out Your Soul with I'm Outta Time.

Don't know why, when Damon Albarn is damn successful when transform into Gorillaz, especially in US, but cannot create any surprise for US market/listeners when he uses back his original form, Blur. If in UK, yes, both Gorillaz and Blur are number one.

Little Bally Cafe @ Subang Jaya

I think I've done a very unhealthy stuff recently.
Playing badminton suppose to be a healthy activity at the first place, but, drinking tones of beer after playing badminton to ease the thirst, I think it is bad for health...

Little Bally Cafe at Subang Jaya.

Little stage.

A great place to dine and wine al fresco.

"免费热绿茶或柠檬汁。Beer drinker please request a free complimentary lemon juice or hot green tea from our staff after the beer for refreshing purpose".

Not many places which you can find this kind of service/offer.

Price list.

Chicken chop.

Set dinner.

1 bucket of Skol at only RM39.90 eventhough after happy hour.

Hot green tea.


After this, we went to Sunway for another around of beer -_-"

I promise myself no more beer after badminton...

Ayam Penyet Ria @ Sunway Pyramid 2

Ayam Penyet Ria @ Sunway Pyramid 2 is located at Marrakesh section.

The interior. Kinda full since it was public holiday.

Due to miss-communicate, I was the last one arrived while some of them almost finish eating, damn!!!

My order.
It tasted really nice, the prawns were fresh, fried bean curd were delicious, and the sambal was super hot.
Anyway, I unable to finish all due to we were in such a rush for movie "The Book of Eli".
I definitely will give this restaurant another try on their chicken.

Swedish Food @ Ikano Power Center

This post, the previous post and one future post are all taken before Chinese New Year.

I supposed to meet up with a friend at E-Curve for dinner and then movie(舞虎Woohoo), but too bad my friend was stuck in traffic jam at Kota Damansara and unable to have enough time for dinner. So I'll have to dine with myself since there was not much time left before the movie.
