Wild (hogs) nite...

A few of us friends (since secondary school) decided to meet up for a couple of drinks last night... Just to catch up and unwind. I was on 'holiday' since my Mrs. Tai is at inlaw's place for the weekend.

We met up for a few beers at theLaundry Bar in The Curve. I personally found the place to be a bit pricey, but I guess it is the 'normal' price since that area is a bit 'high class'. For us, all we wanted was a cozy place to sit down, relax and chat. Yes, I guess when you hit a certain age, chatting can be 'fun'. :)

It was close to midnight and I suggested to the gang that we head over to Cineleisure to watch a midnight movie. I was game for "Jangan Pandang Belakang" since I've heard lots of positive reviews about it.

The rest were not too keen. So we ended up watching Wild Hogs... Hmmm... What's it with me and biker movies anyway?

Martin Lawrence (Bobby), John Travolta (Woody), Tim Allen (Doug) and William H. Macy (Dudley)

I am not sure if it was the beer we had before the movie, but I think the 6 of us practically laughed all our way through the movie. While this movie is not something really memorable, it provided us with really good laughs. I mean how can you not find it funny with lines like these...

Dudley: Thanks, Woody, I feel really safe with you.
Woody: I noticed that. If you ever lay your head on my back while riding bitch, I'll throw you into the traffic!
Dudley: I was just trying to keep the wind out of my face.
Woody: I felt you smell my neck!
Bobby: Did you smell that man's neck?
Dudley: His cologne is fantastic. It's musky with an oakey finish like a... lawyer cowboy.
Bobby: A lawyer cowboy?!?

Mother-in-Law: In my days, the women stayed home. Not the lazy men.
Bobby: In your days, men were busy building pyramids!

(Dudley just finished his 'big' business and put it in a plastic bag)
Woody: Dudley, you have to get rid of that or else I'm going to vomit on your lap.
Dudley: Fine, I'll hang it from a tree.
Woody: Don't hang it in a tree.
Dudley: Why?
Woody: Cause bears don't eat sh1t!

Jack (bully): You're gonna pay a disobedience fee of $10,000, plus another $40,000 to rebuild the bar. If you don't, we're gonna break your friend's legs here.
Dudley: Don't bring the money! I'm a computer programmer! I don't need my legs!
Jack: Fine, we'll break his hands!
Dudley: Oh dammit. Bring the money!

Doug: You're the sheriff, aren't you going out there?
Charley, the sheriff: Hey, I took my law enforcement course on the internet! For arms training they just told us to play Doom!

The cinema was very packed, even for the midnight screening and we had the first row seats... After the movie, I think I had some backache. I had to seat (more like sleep) on the chair just to be able to take in the big screen.

But I really enjoyed the movie and I guess so did Mun San, Jude, Wei Loong, Eu Jin and Kim Chuan.

There was one part of the movie that I found particularly touching... John Travolta's Woody said that he had lost everything in his life except for his three friends (the Wild Hogs). He then adds that he's not about to lose that and goes off to face the bullies (and potential death). That is really touching...

I've already past the '30' age marker. I don't know how long more I have left in this world. That particular scene made me think if I am willing to die for any of my family or friends.... And if I also have family and friends who are willing to die for me?

When I think about all this, I realise what I've not done right... The people around me whom I have neglected... It makes me want to make up for it and spend more time with my friends and family because in the end, if I lose everything, I know I will still have them. My 'wild hogs'... My family and friends who would go through life's roller coaster ride with me and whom I would definitely and gladly do the same with...

Thanks for an excellent evening...
