Oz The Great And Powerful in Cinemas on 7 March!

Wonder what it’s really like to enter the imaginary land of Oz? Or how the wizard of Oz could have come to be? Disney presents you an original, breathtaking tale of the beginnings of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character in “OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL”.

When small-time magician Oscar Diggs pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.


Meet with a star cast that brings Oz’s story to life – you will join Oscar (James Franco) on an incredible journey as he enters the land of Oz, meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) and befriends other unlikely characters such as Finley, the wise winged monkey, and the brave but brittle China Girl.


 What excites me most in Disney’s “OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL”?
Its to see how Oscar put his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—how he transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man.


Movie Synopsis
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well. “Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. “Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in Singapore theaters on March 7, 2013.

Blauer Gear Holds Up To The Test!

Blauer Gear Holds Up To The Test

If you’re looking for equipment that is make at the level of quality that first responders require, and then you don't need to look any further than Blauer. Blauer.com carries a wide range of gear for first responders like body armor police can use in the field. They have a great selection of seriously durable gear for firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and anyone else who needs to be able to count on their equipment in hazardous circumstances. Whether you are looking for basic uniform clothing and accessories or more rugged pieces like safety vests and outerwear, you can trust Blauer to only carry the best clothing and accessories that you can count on when you need to the most.
First responders have to count on every single piece of clothing they wear to do what it is supposed to do. There is just no room for things that don't hold up under pressure. Everything from a simple uniform shirt to a class 2 suit needs to be made from top quality materials that are going to hold up when used in the line of duty. We trust these people to keep us safe, and they trust Blauer to uniform them in only the best.
Even Blauer's accessories like hats and gloves are made to stand up to the test. When you order uniforms from Blauer, you know that everything you are wearing is the best that it can be. With offerings like Gore-Tex Service gloves that are waterproof, windproof, and breathable in order to afford maximum warmth and protection, and Street Gear uniform caps with a ploy/cotton blend and water repellent treatment, you can always find the right accessories to protect you from the elements while you are out serving in the field.
While Blauer's offerings are designed for first responders, I would recommend them to anyone who needs tough clothing that can handle whatever you throw at it. If you need something that is going to last through blazing heat, freezing cold, wind, rain, hail, or snow, then you should shop at Blauer. They offer free shipping on orders over $100 dollars, and you can also check their clearance for great gear at up to 75% off of it's original price. If you need to trust your gear, then don't trust your purchase to anyone else.

How do I swim 80 Laps that time?


It was last year end of July.. I tried out this feat of swimming 80 laps.. which is equivalent to 4 kilometres.

How I did it? 

Two of the main things i brought for the training (i so called it training) were BCAA capsules and water.


BCAA stands for Branched-Chain Amino Acids which is an essential form of amino acid that our body requires for muscle growth. It can be taken before, during and after exercise. Most of the amino acids can be obtained from the food we eat, but our body would need to break it down before it really becomes amino acids to be absorbed by our muscle tissues for muscle growth. So if muscle growth is your goal.. BCAAs are a must.

First, I swam for 40 laps, then 20 laps, then another 20 laps.. which is 40-20-20. Total 80 laps. Its better to swim more at the beginning since you are fresh and have more strength and energy, so at the back it would not be too tiring. You've already covered most of it - 40 laps, half of it.

Each interval i would take a break.. which means after the first 40 laps i took a break and after another 20 laps i took a break. Each break would be around 3-5 mins; I would have one BCAA, drink some water and also do some stretching exercises to loosen up my muscles. By loosening up my muscles, my body would not be so tense up and hence also reduced the chances of getting leg cramps or any muscle cramps. Hence, I took one BCAA at the start, two in between and one at the last after i completed the 80 laps.. so in total i took about 4 BCAAs. You can have more if you want.

The stroke i used thru' out was breast stroke. If i'm not wrong, it took me about 3-4 hours to complete the whole course. Be it fast or slow it does not matter, most importantly you've completed the whole thing. Its really fulfilling and something that i've never done before.. and i did it! I was really an experience!

One shall push your limits.. you wouldn't know you actually can do it until you do so!
This applies to many things in our daily life~!
