Movie Time

THE movie of the year is without a doubt Avengers: Endgame. I mean, it's the final chapter of phase 1 of MCU (or 1 away from the final chapter, which as everyone knows, is the best part with all the fightings and all the happenings).


So we decided to go and watch it (of course!).

Since the movie is about 3 hours long, I wanted to buy the premiere version. Better seats. But much to my surprise, the premiere seats were all sold out. I mean, for a 10.45 AM show. I mean, come on people, don't you have to go to work? And not only that, but it was sold out for the next few days until the end of the month. For all of the showings in Premiere.

I mean, I knew this movie would be popular, but this popular? Uhm.. yeah, I didn't expect it.

Whacha lookin' at?

Anyway, we finally decided to just watch it on the regular screen.

Waiting for the theater to open

Oh boy, it's a loooooongggga movie. Thankfully I knew about it beforehand, so I limit the kids' food and fluid intake. Even that, the kid needs washroom 5 minutes before the end credit. Thankfully she could hold it until the end credit rolls, and we were out of the door. 

We're in. Start the movie!

All in all, quite a fun time with the kids. I thought the flow was a bit too slow in the middle, but I guess you need time to build up to the climax. But then again, it might be because I was in constant fear that my kids would need washroom, so I wished the story would just "get on with it" already.

Myth or ?

Now that my daughter hits 10 month mark, she starts to move more actively around. She doesn't quite walk yet, but she tries. Her feet don't move one in front of the other, but her whole body make a "jump" to compensate. As such, she fell and hit her head. A part of her forehead was swollen. And when we called our family, the single advice that everyone gave us was: Rub oil on it, and then rub a knife on it. This was totally the way we were brought up. I remember seeing an adult rubbing the swollen part of a child's head with knife. It works too! But it makes me wonder... Why does it work? Do we still have to do that nowadays?

Living with Strata...

In North America, the only type of housing where you have complete control over is single family home. SFH means that all your outside walls are not attached to other houses. If you have SFH, chances are you have a front/back yard, and there is grass surrounding your whole house. Sadly, SFH is becoming more and more unaffordable. You can probably still have one, but you will be in debt for all your life. The second best thing for a small family is townhouse, which is what I live in right now. Unlike SFH, townhouses are strata-ed. What is strata? Strata is a group of volunteer owners, selected by all owners in the complex, who deals with administration of the whole complex. It's snowing hard and we need snow plow? Strata will call them in. Somebody's guests are making lots of noises at night time? Strata will warn (and fine) them. Somebody's car knock your garage door? Strata will deal with insurance. The complex needs more visitor parking space reserved? Strata will ensure

E-book Reader

I love reading. Specifically, I love reading fictions and mangas. Unfortunately, most mangas I like are not available in Canada. Fortunately, most of them are scanned and translated into English by their Japanese-reading fans. So there are lots of them online, if you know where to look for them. Having lots of manga jpgs means that I can collect the ones I like. But since they are not real books, it's kinda hard to re-read the mangas I have. I don't have a desktop, and the LCD monitor hurts my eyes once I stare at it for a long time. Knowing my addiction for books (and mangas), we did some research and decided to buy Sony Reader PRS-505 . Yup, I got the red one. The reader acts like a glossy-paper book. So even under sunshine, you can read it without difficulties (supposedly... I cannot test this with Vancouver's weather). Some people ask me why I don't buy Amazon Kindle . If you live in USA, you can search books on Amazon.com for free from anywhere (no wireless charge)
