Four Christmases + The Day The Earth Stood Still

Four Christmases + The Day The Earth Stood Still

Four Christmases was not bad, much better than I thought, but the storyline is pretty predictable once the movie starts. I don’t really think this is a spoiler. The 4 Christmases is derived from the couple parents, both parents are divorce and hence they have to visit each parent house one by one and hence the title 4 Christmases. Some parts are funny, it will make you laugh for sure.

The Day The Earth Stood Still was pretty crap in terms of storyline but the visual effect is fantastic. The only funny part in the show is when Keanu Reeves speaks Mandarin! I seriously don’t understand most of the Mandarin words that he speaks. lol

Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins December 2008 Update

Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins December 2008 Update

Here is my December 2008 WordPress plugins update containing all my 15 WordPress plugins update and 1 new WordPress plugin. All of them should work on WordPress 2.7 as I did not test them on any WordPress version below that.

I am introducing a new plugin called WP-CommentNavi which basically paginate your comments similar to how WP-PageNavi paginate your posts. I am also retiring WP-Sticky as WordPress 2.7 has a sticky post feature built in. WP-Sticky 2.31 WILL NOT work on WordPress 2.7 due to a conflict function “is_sticky”. If you renamed that function to “is_sticky2” or something else, it should work, but as usual I did not test it.

I have upgraded lesterchan.net to WordPress 2.7 alongside with all my updated plugins. Please let me know if you find any bugs on this site by dropping me an email or posting it in the comments. Thanks a lot =)

The update is smooth and it only takes about 30 minutes. Not much compatibility issue here except I have to uninstall my WP-Sticky as WordPress 2.7 has already a sticky post feature built in.

Been watching dog movies for the past 2 weeks! Caught Beverly Hills Chihuahua last week and Bolt yesterday. Both was not bad but Bolt stands out more. If I had to just choose 1 dog movie to watch, I will choose Bolt. It is funny and touching at the same time whereas for Chihuahua, the storyline is quite predictable.

My Taiwan trip is confirmed, departing on the 15th December 2008 (Monday) at 12:25pm on SQ878 and coming back on the 1st January 2009 (Thursday), reaching Singapore at 18:45 on SQ877. My dad asked me to come back the same day as him so that my mom do not need to make 2 trips and so happen that the timing is about the same too. My dad will reach Singapore at about 18:00 on 1st January 2009. We will also be at the same Terminal (Terminal 3) as well as his flight is also SQ (Singapore Airlines).
