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?

On Lying..

Lifehacker shows up with an article titled " How to Be an Effective Liar ". One comment cracks me up.. When I was a kid, I learned pretty quickly that the best way to lie is to tell the truth, but embellish it so much that it won't be believed.   "Did you have a party while your mother and I were gone?"   "Oh yeah! You missed out. It started out fairly small, but by the end, E! News showed up and the Goodyear blimp did a couple of flyovers. Luckily, Martha Stewart got the ankle tracker off, so she came out and helped us clean up afterwards. I'll make sure we take pictures next time." Hahaha.. ^_^

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
