Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition Singapore: Giant Optimus Prime and Bumblebee statues

The most breathtaking attraction of the Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition held at Science Centre Singapore is these 7m tall Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.

Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition Singapore: Optimus Prime and Dinobots Repaint

Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition Singapore celebrates 30 years of evolution of the much beloved and world famous Transformers series. Spotted in the exhibition held at the Science Centre Singapore is this showcase of repainted Transformers toys by Sang Zhong.

Sang Zhong has built great interest in toy models and figures since childhood. After he graduated in fashion design from Donghua University, he still kept the passion for models and figures. He began working on Transformers DIY work, and gradually fell in love with repainting the toys.

Upon the release of the Transformers movie, a series of toys was released in the market. However, due to mass production, the toys were not quite satisfying and their look - especially the colours - appeared quite different from the movies. Some were also disappointed with the plastic texture of the toys. To solve this problem, Sang Zhong started his re-painting project on Transformers toys, hoping to give the toys a rebirth.

Sang Zhong's project is to repaint the original Transformers toys with an ornate metal paint to give texture. The toys had to be completely dismantled and each part was repainted. Paint is applied in multiple layers to ensure the colouring is in perfect condition.

Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer features Hulk vs Hulkbuster

The trailer for the new Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron is out. Synopsis: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, along with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him from enacting his plans. Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, as well as the familiar Vision.

Ultron is voiced by the amazing James Spader. What is interesting in this trailer is that Tony Stark still has his Iron Man armors, at least some of them. And one of them, the heavy duty Hulkbuster will be used to fight against Hulk.

Avengers: Age of Ultron  comes out in April 2015. Long wait.

Scandal's DP reveals how they shot the show

I love Scandal and I can't wait for the new season. Oliver Bokelberg has been shooting the show on the Arri Alexa camera. Over the at Arri website, you can read about how Oliver and his team do their work: "Bokelberg plays with subjective and objective camera placement. Using two and sometimes three cameras has prompted the filmmakers to move beyond standard coverage. In keeping with the secretive subject matter, watching the show often feels like peering in on a conversation from another room."

Mama Zuma's Revenge potato chips and its bizarre background story

I bought Mama Zuma's Revenge potato chips at Mexican and Latin grocery Belmonte Latin Foods mainly because I've never seen it before in Singapore and also because the wrapper says "these chips are made with some of the hottest peppers on the planet." Being a spicy food lover, I'm always game to try out really hot stuff. After biting into the chips, I have to say Mama Zuma's Revenge is the spiciest potato chips I've eaten!  Here's an advice: Get ready plenty of glasses of water if you eat these chips.

On the back of the wrapper, they wrote down a rather interesting and funny background story about Mama Zuma's Revenge. Here it is: "Get too close to Mama Zuma and you will get burned. This woman is determined to scorch everyone in her path. Mama Zuma's weapons are the hottest jalapeno and habanero pepers this side of the Rio Grande. Since she lost the love of her life in a bizarre and tragic accident, Mama Zuma has been hell bent on turning every mouth she kisses with her special brand of passion." With a story like that, how can you not want to try Mama Zuma's Revenge aye?
