Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the third movie of Phase Two in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Iron Man 3 (3rd May 2013) and Thor: The Dark World (8th November 2013).

It will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy premiering on the 1st August 2014 and concluded by Avengers: Age of Ultron on 1st May 2015.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Robert Redford (Alexander Pierce) and Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/The Falcon).

I caught the media screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier just a day before the official opening on Thursday, 27th March 2014 in Singapore. The movie has a running time of 136 minutes, so make sure you empty your bladder before you enter the cinema as you will not want to miss any part of it.

Almost all Marvel’s movies have post-credits scenes. For this movie, there are two post-credits scenes, so make sure you stay till the very end of the credits. Also, see if you can spot Stan Lee cameo in the movie!

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.

Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch

I got the Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch (SGD$95) as my 30th birthday present thanks to my brother, Leroy and his fiancé, Huimin! The Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch is a new iPad Pouch under the new Crumpler Bell range which is launched in Singapore back in March 2014.

Compared to the Crumpler Bag – Milonas, the Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch is heavier, has more pockets to carry your iPad accessories and more padding to protect your iPad.

The Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch is made of Oxford Weave peached nylon which makes it weather resistant.

It has a main compartment that holds your iPad (any generation) and inside the main compartment, there are 2 large pockets and 2 pen pockets. There is also an external zip pocket in front and inside it includes a key lanyard.

It measures 28.5 cm (Width) x 23cm (Height) x 4 cm (Depth) and weighs only 250g.

Happy 30th Birthday To Me

· · · Blog

Yesterday was my 30th birthday! The big 30! I am no longer in the 20+ years old range =(

Sydney Trip
Just came back from Sydney, Australia after spending a week there for holidays with Li Xiang! Sydney is a good place to retire but generally prices there are so much more expensive than Singapore (maybe except for houses and cars). I got a shocked when I paid AUD$20 for a 2-hour parking!

We stayed in Surry Hills at an Airbnb Aparment because hotels there are so expensive. A decent hotel cost more than SGD$200 per night but with Airbnb, I only paid SGD$120 per night.

We love Surry Hills, there are so many cafes there with good coffee and breakfast! We tried Pieno, Bills, Bangbang, Single Origin Roasters and Bourke Street Bakery.

Crumpler Bag – Milonas

Li Xiang got me the Crumpler Bag – Milonas (SGD$45) for Valentine’s Day this year. Thanks Dear!

I love bags! So if you want to get me something, you will never go wrong with a Crumpler or a Timbuk2 bag.

With the Crumpler Milonas, you will be able to fit in any generation of iPads in the main slot and an external Bluetooth keyboard like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover or a flat portable battery charger like the Panasonic – USB Portable Power 10,260mAh (QE-QL301) in the other slot.

The Crumpler Milonas is made up of lightweight and soft but durable materials. It is weather resistant as well.

It measures 28cm (Width) x 23cm (Height) x 4 cm (Depth) and weighs only 150g.
