电影: 《岁月神偷》 Echoes Of The Rainbow


昨晚看MIO TV (付费电视) 时,无意间转到第五十频道正播放着《岁月神偷》。

原本以为是部有关小偷的故事因此没多大兴趣。但,因为有我所欣赏的演员 - 吴君如与任达华两人主演,所以决定继续看下去。

故事是由罗家次子罗进二  (钟绍图 饰) 的角度回顾了六,七十年代的香港。

罗家四口是香港典型的低阶层市民。

罗爸爸 (任达华 饰) 是个造鞋铺的老板。妻子,罗太太 (吴君如 饰) 则是贤内助。

长子罗进一 (李治廷 饰) 长得帅气,品学兼优,又是运动健将。看似有美好的将来,却不幸的患了癌症入院。他与富家女Flora (蔡颖恩 饰) 的纯纯之恋尚未开花结果就夭折了。

弟弟进二则是哥哥的相反: 他喜欢在街上游荡,顺手牵羊,上课不专心,被老师罚站,倒数更是家常便饭!

D.I.Y: Cradle And Docking Station


I own a Samsung Omnia 7 phone.

If you are a non iPhone user like me, you must be frustrated with finding suitable accessories for your mobile phone.

From phone covers to apps and even docking stations, everything seems to be made for Apple products only.

Today, I am going to DIY a cradle and docking station for my mobile phone with the box that it came in with.

All you need is just some time and some ingenuity but most importantly, it costs next to nothing and you did your bit to save the environment by recycling!

Enjoy!

莆田菜馆 Putien @ Jurong Point

The Dead Cockroach

A very Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

We celebrated Father's Day two days ago at Putien over at their Jurong Point branch.

My parents and I were only informed by my sis about this dinner for Dads at the very last minute!

Video: The Lunar Eclipse - Red Moon

No, do not mistaken this for the title of yet another silly vampire movie.

There have been so much talk about it lately but I was not sure if I would be interested to stay up for it.

Singapore is usually located too out of the way geographically to be involved in any eclipse - lunar or otherwise.

This time, however, except for North America, the Lunar Eclipse would be visible practically almost everywhere!

From Africa to Europe and even Asia! Yes, that means Singapore too!

No wonder Twitterville was aflutter with excitement over this rare phenomenon which was set to occur this morning.

I do not usually moon-gaze but my interest was aroused when I knew that the moon would turn a scarlet red (as a result of sunlight refracting through the Earth's atmosphere, and more red light landing on the Moon than blue light) and it was gonna be the century's longest and darkest Lunar Eclipse.

You might want to know that this Lunar Eclipse is different from the Solar Eclipse in the sense that it is perfectly safe to watch with your naked eye and telescope is NOT required.

I shall be updating this blog 'live' with pictures of the moon taken from right outside my window for as long as I could stay awake and hopefully, bring some decent pictures to my readers.

Cupcakes From Africa

As I still have some ingredients left over from the previous cupcake making session, I thought of finishing up the remainder so as not to take up space in the cupboard.

Actually, this was just my third time baking cupcakes so I do not have much experience to speak of.

Movie: LADDALAND 怨鬼之家 ลัดดาแลนด์


Cast: Piyathida Woramuksik, Saharat Sangkapreecha
Director: Sophon Sakdaphisit (Jim)
Genre: Horror
Language: Thai with English Subtitles
Release Date: 9 June 2011
Distributor: Golden Village Pictures

Being a ardent fan of Thai horror movies, I was delighted yet nervous at the same time to attend the premiere of Laddaland at Plaza Singapura last night.

As with most people, I have a love-hate relationship with horror movies. Each time after watching, the horrifying scenes would be looping in my mind for days and despite that, there is a incessant urge in me that's begging to be spooked.
