Super Mario X happy meal: Mission’s Completed

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

all i am left with for myself

is a Scary Boo

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

 

可以說是為了彭于晏

也可以說純粹是為了電影

結果比預想中好看

因為之前《赤道》的失望

 

一直很記得的赤道

不是因為有多好看

是因為看完了有點後悔

因為隔天四點登峨眉山

看完了感覺好像浪費了

 

所以如果硬要弄個排名

《寒戰 I》>《寒戰 II》>《赤道》

 

劇透就不要講太多了

反正是沿著《寒戰 I》

那個一直沒有揭露的答案

 

在朋友圈裡發了一個

略短的影評 也不算是影評

反正都是和電影無關的一堆雜亂無章

 

男配角

- 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

   然後他反問彭于晏,你知不知道我叔叔誰

 

大配角

- 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

 

其他配角

- 李子雄、將志光、還有很多

別跟我說你沒看過他在某某電視劇的演員

 

其實《寒戰 II》相比《寒戰 I》

缺少的就是那種鬥智斗勇的痛快以及

分秒必爭的節奏

 

從追查壞人到殲滅的過程就

很一般的警匪片劇情

壞人也好像一點都沒有反擊似的

就一步一步走向強弓之末

 

所以可以說是驚喜不夠大

但也不至於太失望吧

鬆了一口氣

至於第三集的發展

我想。。。也就有待票房成績了

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!!

frankly speaking

thus far

there’s not really a single item

I crazily fall in love with

 

and yet

I already have marked a few items

from the Disney collaborations
