Micro-review: Spider-man 3 May 5, 2007

There are some great scenes in the movie, but with all the hype and high expectations… I’m disappointed. Yes, there’s action. Yes, the special effects are amazing. But I think the director often focuses on the things that are relatively unimportant and leaves out the significant stuff. e.g. Not… enough… Venom…!

簫&笛 April 14, 2007

You know I play笛子(Di lol), right?  While I may not be the most skilled player in the world, I’m crazy about it.  Di is my love, my life, my soul, comparable to Mrs. Fields’ cookies 😀

Anyway, here’s another instrument that I’m gonna get addicted to: 簫

It’s huge.  It’s long.  It’s cool to look at.  And the sound it produces is sooo amazing!

It’s pretty hard to play, though.  So I’m afraid I can’t put up clips of me playing it… yet.

Here’re some really nice photos:

For those of you who don’t know, I like Mrs. Fields cookies, OK?  I’m simply crazy about them.  They’re neither too hard or too soft.  They’re just right.  They’re yummy, scrumptious, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious… the list can go on and on.

So anyway, I was on my way home yesterday when I passed one of the stores.  Ever since they raised the price from $8.5 to $9.5 per cookie I’d been trying to cut down on them.  But the smell was so good that I couldn’t resist.  The cookies were just baked!  Hot from the oven!  And the taste was superb.  It was really, really good.

…and that was the end of the story.  Yup, I know this entry is rather pointless, but just give me this one chance to express my love for Mrs. Fields…’ cookies 🙂

My demand for Mrs. Fields cookies is perfectly inelastic, as indicated in the graph 😀

The Sound of Silence February 1, 2007

Sometimes, I like to classify different kinds of sound into different categories, different groups… thinking of them as different “layers”.

So I was walking home today, and was hearing all sorts of sound (cars passing by, people coughing…).  But suddenly, I felt different.  I felt as if some of the “layers” were gone, filtered out… and what I heard became softened, toned down.

Completely bewildered and unnerved, I actually stepped one of my feet hard onto the ground, desperately trying to make some noise.  But it didn’t change, even my footsteps sounded “quiet”, distant…

Later, everything returned to normal and I didn’t realize it.  I was simply stunned by the experience that I had… I heard it, but I couldn’t hear it.

What is it?

I call it the Sound of Silence.

(This is not something that I made up!  The experience that I had was real but I might have exaggerated a little bit :P)

以下係我同庶務部入面一個人嘅真實對話:

我: 要枝黑色同紅色嘅marker吖唔該!

庶務部: 好呀, 麻煩登一登記先吖!

(我登記中)

庶務部: 你Form 1 呀?

我: 下? 我Form 4 啦!

庶務部: 下!? 乜你禁…

(我扮聽唔到)

庶務部(連亡補救): … sorry 呀下。

我(扮無嘢): 唔緊要。

庶務部: 咁你喺個表上面寫black and blue markers 啦。

我: 乜唔係black and red咩?

庶務部: 係喎, 果然係Form 4呀下!

我(強忍怒氣): 哈哈哈~

—————————————————————————————–

咁都得!?我以前就話細粒D啫,而家高咗好多啦喎… 重似Form 1!?

(記得Form 1有一次返學校比人當咗做黎面試個D六年級)

唉…算啦,可能我baby face啦…

Unrelated:

About a Boy 嘅戲唔錯喎~可惜書入面好多嘢都cut咗,個ending亦都唔同…不過仍然好好呀!多謝Peony同Bonnie推介 🙂

My current overall-average-super-important exam mark is 67… dragged down significantly by Chinese and Eng. Lit., oh well… 😦

I know that I screwed up Eng. Lit., but Chinese!?  Must… work… harder…!!!

Oh and I’m not that happy with my English marks either… sure, they were still above average… but I can do way, waaay better!

But the rest was pretty good… maths, in particular, came as a pleasant surprise 😀

Gonna update tomorrow!

edit:

My exam mark for history is surprisingly high! 😀

As for the rest… nothing exciting or unexpected…

Check in tomorrow for another exam mark update!

「炒咗」 January 10, 2007

我一向都唔係考完試之後係唔係都話「炒咗」果D人, 但今日考完Eng. Lit. 之後, 我真係要講聲:

「炒咗」

真係考得好差… poetry乜都要”over-analyze”, 雙城記明明有好多個theme, 佢要我地寫個寫足版紙… 真係唔明John點吹到版…

今次我明白到一樣野:

Set 1, 未必同Eng. Lit.有緣

而家真係好難過好難過呀… 以前我最憎同最驚果科都係數, 但係而家我對Eng. Lit. 嘅恐懼好似重勁…

唉… 算啦, 考試過咗唸黎都無用…

但係今次真係

「炒咗」

————————————————————

哈哈哈! 總算有番D開心野… iPhone出左啦~Nokia, Sony Ericsson全部死得lu… 上official site睇啦,You Tube都應該遲D有片睇ga啦!

離群又唔係, 自閉又唔係 December 19, 2006

今日又放早… 放咗學之後原本話跟D人去溜冰定唔知做乜, 但係我最後同人地食完飯之後就返咗黎…

點解?  係咪我本身有D奇怪偏激嘅思想 (例子: 唱K是罪惡), 再加埋自己又住得遠呢?  點解我會做咗「中途走人, 一半離群」, 自閉又唔自閉得晒嗰種人架?

唉…
