A "B" Movie

Yet again I didn't get to watch Stardust. On Diwali's eve, I asked William, George and Michael to 1Utama for movie. Being a Wednesday and the eve of a public holiday, cinemas were almost fully booked. GSC had only a couple of front row seats for the 10 something show. So instead, the three kings and an archangel - King Henry, King WIlliam, King George and St Michael - settled with watching a 'B' movie....oops I meant The Bee Movie.

What load of fun it was!

The bees were so human-like in the animation, we can't help but laugh our heads off. There were famous bees such as BeJesus, Bee Gandhi and even a Bee Larry King (wearing the same type of glasses and suspender belts as the human Larry King)!!! That's not all, you'll find cameo appearances by an actor, a singer and a favourite cartoon character too! No kidding...

My verdict: 7.5/10

Still, I hope I can catch Stardust, perhaps on Saturday morning. No fantasy movie gives me such anticipation since El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan's Labyrinth).

Tried a new song (Little Drummer Boy) at carolling practice earlier. Also had fun singing The Twelve Days of Christmas with Janice - too bad we only reached Day 8, haha. Some of us then went to William's Tmn Mayang for supper. I found new kaki's for playing scrabbles (Martin, Val, Andrew and Marie), chess (Andrew & Joseph) and basketball (Joseph & Shen).

Back to work tomorrow morning. It'll be a long, tough Friday. Looking forward to Ching Wei's wedding this weekend.

Measuring Up

After many distractions & diversions, I finally finished reading Sidney Poitier's "A Measure of A Man". While the intro and content were a good read, the conclusion was personally a letdown for me.

On a happier note, carolling practice tonight did measure up. We are now quite well versed with the arangements of all our SATB songs - Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful, The First Nowell, O Holy Night and Ding Dong Merrily on High. There will be lots of fine-tuning from now on. As usual, my fellow tenors came to practice in full force.

Our first performance will be during the Xmas party for the Puchong kids on Dec 1. This would be a good warmup for the serious ones beginning Dec 7. Oh BTW we'll be singing in major malls (e.g. 1Utama and the Curve) & hotels in PJ and possibly KL Hilton & Le Meridien too. You're most welcome to come watch & support us.! =)
