I am so pissed off with TNT service, they told me they will be here at my place to collect my Nokia N81 8GB between 3pm and 5pm and now it is 5.45pm and THEY ARE STILL NOT HERE. I gave the driver a call and he ask me to wait for him for another 20 minutes. This is so ridiculous.

I am going to the IT Show 2008 and this stupid thing is delaying me.

Farewell Nic & Blair
Went to Nic & Blair farewell party yesterday at Screening Room Rooftop Bar located in
12 Ann Siang Road. It is my first time there and the view is so magnificent. I think I will be back there again with Li Xiang. However the price is a little steep especially the food. There is this dish called Burger Bar where you can choose 2 mini burgers and it cost $12 (not including taxes) and the size of each mini burger is like 1/4 the size of a normal burger that you can find in fast food restaurants. The Ice Lemon Tea cost $6 (not including taxes) and it is nice and for that the price is quite reasonable for a bar.

Farewell Nic & Blair! All the best to your new home in Seattle.

Leap Year In 2008

Leap Year In 2008

Today is the 29th February 2008 and the next time February have 29 days will be in 2012.

A leap year (or intercalary year) is a year containing one or more extra days (or, in case of lunisolar calendars, an extra month) in order to keep the calendar year synchronised with the astronomical or seasonal year. For example, February would have 29 days in a leap year instead of the usual 28. Seasons and astronomical events do not repeat at an exact number of full days, so a calendar which had the same number of days in each year would over time drift with respect to the event it was supposed to track. By occasionally inserting (or intercalating) an additional day or month into the year, the drift can be corrected. A year which is not a leap year is called a common year.

Caught “What Is Man?” yesterday at the Esplanade. It will only be on for 2 days (yesterday and today) at the Esplanade Theatre). The performance starts at 8pm and lasted till about 11.30pm, including 20 minutes intermission break. There is a total of 28 scenes of which 15 are be played before and the remaining 13 scenes are played after the intermission break. There is also a post show dialog session which lasted for about an hour with the director (Edward Lam) and the actors and actresses.

Nine men coincidentally named after nine outlaws from the Chinese classic The Water Margin audition for roles in a gangster movie. Through nine monologues, the would-be heroes struggle to assert their manhood in their RPG (role-playing game) underworld, revealing the frailties and foibles of the unique creature called man.

Chinese New Year Day 1
I think Chinese New Year is getting more and more boring because all my cousins are getting older and they have their own family to attend to and the gathering time is getting shorted and shorter each year. Last time when I was still a kid we would played till at night for the first and second day of Chinese New Year, now before the night approaches on the first day, I would already left my paternal grandfather place to return home.

We wanted to watch movie but all the movie regardless of timeslot is sold out (left the first row) and GV website was undergoing very heavy traffic and I am unable to book any movie even for the next day.
