I am not afraid to announce that yes, I cried watching the movie “The Kid from Big Apple”, several times! The movie is a real tear-jerker, even for big grown up men like myself. I’m pretty sure that by the end of the movie, there were not a single dry eye in the cinema hall […]

Movies weekend again for me and the two kids! As promised to them, I brought them to watch The Mermaid. The legendary Stephen Chow does not appear in the movie, but his signature style can’t be mistaken. If you have watched his last few movies like CJ7, Kung Fu Hustle or Shaolin Soccer, you’ll know […]

OMG, I’m watching Ola Bola for the second time! And this is the best ever! Why, well read on! It was the 3rd day of CNY. We’ve got nothing much to do in Sagil, so I suggested to my father-in-law that I bring them to watch Ola-Bola, since I know he’s a football fan, he’ll […]

I have just put down what is literally the best book that I have ever read, PERIOD. I’ll be honest, I’m not a heavy reader, being a full-time daddy wrings you dry of any free time. But Steven King’s version of time travel really works for me! Before you go on, I’d like to warn […]

I watched two movies over the weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I had higher hopes for GOTG, and I was let down. Even IMDB rated it higher than TMNT. But it was rather boring, so I’m not going to write about that. Then I watched TMNT. I had expected it […]

Yay, more updates to the phone! This is already the 3rd update, including the first time I bought it. All updates seems to add new functions and features. And seems more stable. So it’s been more than 2 months that I’ve been using this phone, how does it fare? My biggest praise for this phone […]

Went to watch the much hyped Great Day, 天天好天, a movie directed by the same person who gave you Tiger WooHoo last year. This 天天好天 movie has a lot to live up to, since it features so many of the previous actors and actresses from Tiger WooHoo. There was also a lot of so-called “good […]

Okay, I admit it! I’m a cry baby, maybe a little emotional. My eyes were a bit wet when I saw this last night….. Okay okay, I cried, there, happy? I did not know how powerful the movie can be! It was already late, I should be sleeping, but I watched a short clip and […]

I just came back from Sunway, burnt through 5 hours of Toy Story marathon wearing a silly 3D glasses. I only went there with Yan Yan. Mei Fen initially wanted to come, but decided to stay home to take care of Hui Yan. The marathon began at 7 pm. It was free seating so it […]

This, a digital camera, worth almost RM1,500 a pop! In reality I owe her this since her birthday last year, so it’s well overdue actually! 😛 This is the camera, the new Canon Powershot S90.     Remember when I mentioned that I wanted to buy a PnS? I wasn’t kidding! Why did I choose […]
