Vantage Point – 20th March 2008
Caught Vantage Point on Thursday at GV VivoCity. Personally, I find the movie is nice but I know of others who do not like the movie at all due to the repetition. I love how they tried to bring the message across to the audience based on different perspective. I love how they leave a cliff hanger at the end of each perspective and visiting it back later at the next perspective. I think back in 2005, Hoodwinked also uses this method.
24th Birthday Celebration – 21st March 2008
Celebrated my 24th birthday with Li Xiang at Mandarin Oriental’s Melt, The World Cafe, on Good Friday. The buffet dinner is S$70.00 per head on weekends and public holidays. Ordered an additional 2 glasses of pineapple juice and after paying the bill, I realise it is S$12.00 per glass. The total bill amounted up to S$164 and the tax and service charge alone is S$29.03. Ended up paying S$193.05.
Went to catch Disney On Ice at Singapore Indoor Stadium last Saturday (8th March 2008). We caught the last slot for the day which is at 7.30pm.
We met up for dinner at Bao Luo Wan Xiang located at Plaza Singpura’s basement 2 together with Wayne. According to Li Xiang they also have a branch at Lao Pa Sat but she said that the branch at Plaza Singapura taste much better. Not forgetting the price is very affordable, a bowl of noodle is about S$5.00 and the tim sum is about S$2.50 for each basket.
San Alfonso del Mar is a resort located in the central coast of Chile, frequently noted because of its 1,000-meter long, 19-acre outdoor pool, which holds a Guinness world record. The resort’s large pool utilizes a technology developed by the Chilean company Crystal Lagoons, which uses water pumped from the Pacific Ocean, that is then filtered and treated for supply to the pool.
I got woken up by a call at 4.34am this morning. It is a guy over at the end of the line and here is the brief conversation we had:
He: Is that Lester? Are you from Chatline?
Me: Yes, I am Lester, but I am not from Chatline
He: Are you from Chatline? (he ask again)
He: Ok Thanks, I think you friend had sabotage you by putting your name and number on chatline
Me: I see, Ok, Bye (I hang up after that)
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.
