Super Mario X Mcdonald 01Super Mario X Mcdonald 02Super Mario X Mcdonald 03Super Mario X Mcdonald 04Super Mario X Mcdonald 05


Got the first two

then my sister grabbed them away

and threw a hundred bucks

saying that she would like the whole set


but i made up my mind that

instead of collecting 2 sets of 16 figurines

i will just get a Yoshi and probably

a Scary Boo for myself

and that’s all

however luck wasn’t on my side

so i was away in Singapore for 5 days

after buying the first set of

Yoshi and Scary Boo


came back to find out that

all have been sold out

i went to 3 branches within 1km

despite having bought 9 sets of

happy meal plus some sundae cones

over the last four weeks

如果有第三集 X 可以更快狠準些:寒戰 II

Cold War 2 - Eddie Peng 寒戰2 李家俊 彭于晏 02Cold War 2 - Eddie Peng 寒戰2 李家俊 彭于晏 03Cold War 2 - Eddie Peng 寒戰2 李家俊 彭于晏  01














《寒戰 I》>《寒戰 II》>《赤道》



反正是沿著《寒戰 I》




略短的影評 也不算是影評




- 林文龍和郭富城的共同朋友:熊黛林

- 林家棟在沒有劉德華的情況下,是活不了的

- 安志傑好像之前沒死,但估計現在他在家看北鼻

- 尹子維還是很帥,雖然只有兩秒入鏡

- 另一alive成員,陳子聰雖然戲份也少

   卻埋了一延續,就是《寒戰 I》醉駕的富二代




- 亦是帥帥的壞人首領,張國柱,張震的爸爸

- 文詠珊依然很漂亮,不過至今未能記住她的臉

- 李治廷的戲份太少了,就感覺可有可無

- 周筆暢的客串亦是如此,卻在海報佔一席



- 李子雄、將志光、還有很多



其實《寒戰 II》相比《寒戰 I》

Mid-Year Plateau X Then a Sudden Trough: Ju-on

The month of June was pretty flat

as in there wasn't any

super dupery mad rush


Things are getting more stable

I am used to waking up at 6

so that I can get off by 6

to go for my daily evening jog


I mean a walk / grocery /

pharmacy shopping session


well who else are like me

taking a walk in a

shopping district cum tourist attraction

within 100m there you are

you accidentally pick up an ice cream

on your way back


It's like so frequent that

I avoid going to that

(One and only) shopping on a weekend

because I have been there like almost

every single day during weekdays


not to mention

occasional weekday's brunch

at the same area too

and dropping by Cotton On

after the brunch


Having drafted the above for June

back on Monday

never expect the month to

take such a drastic turn


Wednesday was a public holiday

as a matter of fact

i am used to working on such day


yet it was an exceptionally busy one

juggling among a few projects

from really small quantity to large

and i was down with

fever and sore throat


towards late afternoon

when i thought I could finally

take a nap as work progress was

actually quite manage-able by then


got an email for a back-up task

had previously got head up and

agreed to take this up

but i never expect it to be

as complicated and as many emails


back-up in the sense that

the office which usually assigns task

was closed during the holiday

so i was supposed to deal with

another segment of the chain

i.e. getting quite a few emails

and not really knowing about

obtaining and delivering the files


it was very time consuming

given the other few pending deadlines

extremely draining

given the fever / sore throat / etc


to make matter worst

my home internet was down after 7PM

so i submitted one of my main work

via hotpot connection and

got done with it thinking that

the long day was finally over

in fact i started at 4 AM


i vomited having tried to

have something for dinner

off to bed and got another email

from the other side, the one

which was giving me some issues that

they actually didn’t get any files

the one i uploaded


i made another attempt

my home connection was still down

after two hours

and this time round

hotspot was suddenly not working


and i was actually feeling cold

literally covered in blanket

the option of heading to a cafe was

definitely out


but they were waiting for my files

so i was dragged out of bed

and walked out in the rain

borrowing Wi-Fi from a hotel lobby

to send the files over


thought that was it

a bad day was finally over

the week wrapped up

not good neither


got email from client

about quality issue

“taking off sentence or phrase”

was one of a requests in the comment


i doubt i can work further as

several jobs down the road

the same “paraphrasing” issue

was mentioned and emphasized


felt down not really because of

the potential loss in business but

was quite a nice friend back then


and the worst case of the week

it struck towards the end of the week

5 something in the evening

i was helping my mom with pastry

hands were occupied and

phone was away from the table


when i checked my phone

around 6 PM

i actually missed an email

which came in at 5:44

and saw it 2 hours later

along with another email which came in


280 USD flew out of the window

for a task of non-rushing deadline and

non-complicated content as

it was already assigned to someone else


and it actually sheds a

really bad image of

not replying to emails on time


deadlines juggling is fine

working on a public holiday is fine


fever + sore throat

handling loads emails for a single task

sudden Wi-Fi + mobile connection failure

helpless negative feedback


and best of all

wrapping it up with

missing an extremely important email


i have been extremely careful with email

succumbing to turning on data

even if I go for my evening jog

and i actually missed the email when

i was actually at home!!

Prefer Disney X over Peanuts: When It Comes to X-over

a quick look at the current collaborations

  • Disney X Coach
  • Disney X LeSportsac
  • Peanuts X LeSportsac


and I have been asking myself

over and over again


Coach and LeSportsac

two different spectrums of market

yet can’t help noticing that


why Mickey and Minnie

look way better than Snoopy

in these collaborations


like as a die-hard Peanuts fan

I am not dying to get these bags

let’s say price is not a factor


yet I really fall for these Mickey bags

the artwork and even the bag itself!!

I already have marked a few items

from the Disney collaborations
