The Dark Knight Curses GSC IOI Mall

Curse of The BATMAN a.k.a The Dark Knight !

20 July 2012,  tragedy happened at Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during a premier screening of "THE DARK KNIGHT RISES", 12 innocent movie lovers were killed and 58 others injured.

The gunman : James Holmes
The gunman equipped himself with full armor and weapon, some audience thought it could be some special arrangement by the organiser for the premier screening.

Unfortunately, ...

Quoted by wikipedia:

"The gunman threw a canister emitting a gas or smoke, partially obscuring the audience members' vision, making their throats and skin itch, and causing eye irritation. He then fired a 12-gauge Remington 870 Express Tactical shotgun, first at the ceiling and then at the audience. He also fired a Smith & Wesson M&P15 semi-automatic rifle with a 100-round drum magazine, which malfunctioned after reportedly firing fewer than 30 rounds. Finally, he fired a Glock 22 handgun. He shot first to the back of the room, and then toward people in the aisles. Some bullets passed through the wall and hit people in the adjacent theater 8, which was screening the same movie. Witnesses said the multiplex's fire alarm system began sounding soon after the attack began and staff told people in theater 8 to evacuate. One witness said that she was hesitant to leave because someone yelled that there was someone shooting in the lobby and that they shouldn't leave." 

It did sounds like filming a movie, but that was happening for real ! My condolences for all the victims. May they rest in peace. v_v  

Despite of the circumstances, some of the cast of THE DARK KNIGHT had been facing others unpropitious incident too,

Heath Ledger as The Joker
22 Jan 2008, Heath Ledger died from an accidental "toxic combination of prescription drugs" few months before "The Dark Knight" release.


Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
August 2008, a horrific car accident nearly took Morgan Freeman's life. He was fighting for his life for four and a half hours on the operating table for a broken arm, elbow and shoulder injury.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman
August 2011, a stunt double for Anne Hathaway crashed into expensive camera equipment during filming.

It seems like "The Dark Knight" really attached with bad luck or being cursed, but I believe that things will happen anytime, anywhere, its just so coincidently happened to the related people.

Therefore, I still go for the movie, online purchased tickets for the show at GSC, IOI Mall.

Unfortunately ....

I couldn't escape the fate.....

Half way of the movie, suddenly the whole theater silent ..

SOUND SYSTEM MALFUNCTION !!!

Was asked to wait for 10 minutes, the audience waited patiently...

10 minutes later ....

"Sorry customers, the system can't be repaired, please get back your refund at the counter"

=______=|||

Ended up at a long queue to get the cash refund...


Shall I add in another bad-incident to the list of "The Dark Knight Curse" ? LoL !

I just thankful that what happened was just a malfunction system but not a gunman show. *phew*


~ Pray for the victims ~

In Love with Hokkaido の The Fantasy Town - OTARU (小樽)

After impressed by the breathtaking view of flowers sea, in my heart was thinking, I had done the most important visit in Hokkaido, therefore, I did not expect any other thing to impress me further. But, I was wrong, the places that we are going today has given me surprises, one by one.
Yesterday was too tired of running after the sea of flowers, I was consider fainted in the hotel room at night. Haha.. Luckily, this morning when I wake up, I felt refreshed!
As we are in the city today, I decided to dress up colorfully, you will see in the photos later, haha, guess I will not wear the same combination back at my home country. :-P
Breakfast! This hotel does not has a large hall for dining, guests have to line up to wait for empty table. This was my first experience that have to line up for hotel breakfast! Yet, the food that served were just so so.

This morning, we are early to get on the bus as we do not want to rush like yesterday and make everybody waited for us.
The bus start movi…

~ HOME ~

Was here last weekend with a bunch of crazy friends, it is located a Banda Hilir, Melaka, just about 10 minutes walking distance to Dataran Pahlawan. 

As there is no "TURN IN HERE" signage at the junction, we had missed the junction and had to make a big round to come back here coz its a one way street. For the 2nd time, contacted the friend who been here before, after passing Hotel Equatorial, must slow down and look for the building of "Huang Association", right after the building, there is this small road turning in to the left (the road is VERY small, its just a lorong actually, ngam ngam for 1 car to pass only). 
Finally, we had reached the destination. Was welcomed by a great smile by Ms. Rebecca aka Becky, there were a couple sitting at the living hall, Becky introduced them to us too! She then guide us to to our chalet -- Ixora.…
