Caught the movie Over The Hedge over at Cathay Cineleisure yesterday with Hairol. Wanted to book the tickets at first but something screwed up and Hairol can't book it online so I went down to get the tix personally. It seems like Cathay only release row C onward for booking and reserve row A and B for walk-in purchases. When I went to website, the entire top row was fully booked but when I went to the box office, the top two rows were totally free. So guys, if you want really good seats, go early to the box office and buy them.

Anyway, back to the show. A very funny show I should say. Its also very exaggerated, especially in the R.J. opening up the bag of nachos scene and the "The Depelter Turbo 2000" scene. A very good show. It seems like lately, Hollywood've been working hard. Putting out good shows instead of lousy ones.

Went to watch The Da Vinci Code yesterday with Hairol at Cineleisure. A very good show, especially when you've already read the book. The movie helps you to visualise the book, enabling you to see many of the scenes which you can only imagine when reading the book. Due to time constraint, some parts of the book are left out in the movie and also for the continuity, many scenes are different from the book and being rushed through. But hey, you can't be really true to the book, otherwise, you'll get a four hour movie instead of a two hour one and the budget will be astronomical. The movie, same as the book, can really make a believer out of you at some point of the movie. Making you really think that Jesus had a wife and descendants. The CGI are superb, with the camera weaving in and out of cars, rooms and also the recreation of places like Westminster Abbey etc. A really good movie which I recommend everyone to watch it. If you've watch the movie and haven't read the book yet, I'll suggest you read it as it is more detailed. I really hope they make a prequel to the movie, Angels and Demon, but I doubt so as it would be impossible to get access to the Vatican City for a 'blasphemous' show.

Final Theory Test

Went for my Final Theory Test today. Its been a long time since I took a proper test and I forgot how much I hate the pre-test feeling, where you feel jittery while waiting for the test to commence. (The BTT doesn't count… I was late and didn't go through the waiting period…) Instead of being late like the last time, I was there almost 20 mins early and waited outside the classroom worrying if I would forget anything… Gosh… I hate that feeling… Anyway, breezed through the test and only had two uncertain questions. First one being the bus lane timing. You might think that I would remember the bus lane timing forever since I flunked my HSP (Highway Situation Problem) test in the army because I can't remember the timing but I still screw it up and selected the wrong answer… Damn… The next uncertain question is the question regarding the number of demerit points that one must not have more than in order to qualify for any theoretical or practical test. Had a really weird sense of deja vu when I saw that question. Kept wondering where I saw that ruling before… It finally dawned upon me after the test that the answer is actually right behind the slip of paper indicating the test password which was sitting in front of me for the whole duration of the test… The guy who wrote the test must be laughing to himself when he created that question. "Hmmm, let see of those idiots realised that the answer is right in front of them." I think I got that question correct…

Treasure Hunting

Didn't exactly dig up gold, but found a couple of good stuff over the past two days.

Met up with Hairol yesterday and went to Heeren for dinner. Was basically bored stiff at home so jio-ed him out. Didn't planned on getting anything until I saw what was on HMV's Mega Movie and Music Sale. It wasn't really that attractive until we through the sub-$10 section. That section was full of treasures! Stuff that I've always wanted to buy but HMV had been charging obscenely for them. Seems like HMV was trying to clear the stock. I only saw the cds accidentally they were the only copy left except for Dirty Vegas. CDs that I've bought: The Chemical Brothers' Surrender and Come With Us, Dirty Vegas' One and Voodoo Child's Baby Monkey. All four of them for less than forty dollars, what a steal :D

As for today, went shopping at IKEA and queensway with Kenny, Weiting and Wenjun. Was intending to buy the Repli Cat at queensway but I couldn't find the colour that I like. Guess I'll go to the Puma Boutique at Marina Square to get them. Couldn't get the shoe I wanted but found something else interesting.

Printed on the tee: "Legalize [image of a pack of chewing gum]. Chewing Gum Movement. You Got Your Casino. I Want My Chewing Gum."

What a way to make a statement. If chewing gum is still not legalised by the next GE, I think I'll wear it to the polling station. (Provided my constituency is not a walkover again…)

Seems like I offended the Traffic Light God today… Went for my Basic Theory Test today and was running a little late, not very late but time will be a little tight. To my horror, almost all of the traffic lights that I encountered turned red just before my bus reached it. At first, it felt quite normal to me to encounter some red light but after a while, it seems like all the traffic lights along Jurong West/East Ave 1 are conspiring to turn red when I approach them… After exiting Ave 1, I figured out that I still might be able to make it if the lights are back to their "randomness" but no… I was wrong… The "Red Light Phenomenon" continued throughout the Bukit Batok area and by the time I realised I'm absolutely screwed by the lights, its was too late… I'm already at Bukit Batok Ave 5… Too near and too late to catch a cab. And it does not end there… A final bombshell dropped outside the HomeTeamNS club… Seems like Swiss Cottage Sec is having a half day off… When the bus stopped outside the club, a flood of students entered the bus… By then, I felt like going insane and start killing people but the sane side of me prevail… I resigned to my fate and hope that I am still able to take the test… Good thing the tester allowed me to take the test…

Finished the test in less than 15 mins. Last to go in, third to come out. Got an uncertain question, the age for child restrain. (below the age of 8… Got it wrong…) Didn't learn that in SAF Driving Centre, we don't have toddlers as vehicle commanders. (Although some of them have the mentality of toddlers, they're legally above the age of 8) Went straight to apply for my PDL. The counter was super slow… I think I queued for over 15 mins… It took me longer to queue then to take the test… Bummer…

Booked my advanced for next Friday. Pretty fast I should say, considering that I waited for almost two months for my basic…

The Celebrity Matchmaker

Take this test at Tickle

Your match is Cameron Diaz!

The Celebrity Matchmaker
Brought to you by Tickle

There's just something about Cameron Diaz, isn't there? You sure think so, which is why this Charlie's Angel is your celebrity dream girl. The easy-going California native is prettier than any girl next door and still twice as nice. Her unpretentious, up-for-anything attitude has appealed to you ever since she chewed up the scenery with Jim Carrey in The Mask. She may be a former international supermodel, but you can just tell she'd be up for a beer and a burger — and she might even watch the game with you, too. What more could a guy want? Since you've always been a sucker for the spontaneous, easy-going "guy's girl," Cameron's fresh-faced looks, winning smile, and non-stop legs will make you feel like you've finally found "the one."

What Breed of Dog Are You?

Take this test at Tickle

You're a German Shepherd!

What Breed of Dog Are You?
Brought to you by Tickle

No bones, about it, you're a loyal, hard-working German Shepherd. Dedicated and always low-maintenance, people flock to you — they know they can count on you to get any job done, and done well. That focus and attention to detail spans from your personal to your professional life, too. Although you can be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to the projects you tackle, you still manage to keep cool and laid-back in social situations. You get a kick out of the little things and thrive when you're constantly busy and on-the-go. Easygoing and unpretentious, you don't need constant pampering and reassurance. A genuine, carefree pup, you're a true-blue friend, employee, and partner. Woof!

Last week, I wrote that I went to Sakura for pre-ATEC Stage II preparation. Yesterday, the people from Scout Platoon Bunk 2 less Xiong Yao plus Desmond from Bunk 1 went for post-ATEC Stage II celebration at Baccarat. Great food there, the seafood are very fresh and basically for the fish and chawamushi, the moment they put it out, it’ll be gone within a few minutes. Having two buffet dinners might not be healthy for me, but hey, after starving for four days at Lim Chu Kang, who could resist?
