Oscar

We saw Benjamin Button two weeks ago and then Slumdog Millionaire yesterday evening. I must say that between these two Academy Award Best Picture nominated movies, I enjoyed Slumdog more. It's not a feel good movie that Anti-Ringgit claimed it was but it is entertaining and exciting. Button was just too slow for my taste and too, how do you say, arty-farty. These days, not many people likes arty-farty show anymore.. I guess that's the reason why it only win 3 Oscars (out of 13 it was nominated)... If you have not seen Slumdog, I highly recommend it. Go see it in the movies.. the score was an excellent piece that moves and complemented the movie.

Tonight - I am going to watch Platoon - a war movie which won Oscar for Best Picture in 1986. I have not seen this movie before, so it will be a trip down memory lane...

My opinion on iPhone X

I'm a huge fan of everything Apple. And yet, I don't have the latest Apple gear. I'm not that rich to buy every Apple gear there...
