Straight No Chaser – 12 Days

This is still my favorite version of “12 Days of Christmas”.

By the way, do you know that it cost $87,402.81 to buy all the 364 gifts in the song this year? That is just a small 0.9% increase from last year.

Went to watch Avatar last Thursday, thanks to the invite from Toshiba.

Actually, the entire story can be summarized in 2 words: “Pocahontas 2154AD”. Yeap, there isn’t anything special about the story. The plot is predictable. You’ve seen that story somewhere. A mixture of Pocahontas, Dances with Wolves, Last Samurai, Matrix etc etc etc.

But I’m not saying it’s a lousy show. It’s a great show, in terms of the amazing computer generated graphics. In fact, I simply love the graphics. And I’m just watching the 2D version. I heard the 3D version is even better.

Watch Avatar not for the story, but for the special effects.

Think I’ll go watch Avatar again, but this time on 3D.

Always be the one being chased, not the one chasing. Unless it’s a police and thief situation.

Intel Cannonbells

Here is an interesting video from Intel.

Elvin: If you are reading this, better becareful. Maybe they will do this to Singapore employees next. Wahahahaha…. kidding kidding.

PS: The video is most likely fake. Quite impossible for human cannonball to be so accurate. The lack of safety also makes it feel fake. Plus it’s quite impossible to walk away from that uninjured.

Dee Kay Dot As Gee Giveaway: BlackBerry phone pouch

Got this during the BlackBerry Bold 9700 launch event. But unfortunately I do not have a BlackBerry and I didn’t win one during the lucky draw. (I think I’ve used up all my lucky draw luck for 2009) The pouch can fit other phone, but then, it would be kinda wasted. Most BlackBerry phone pouch has a magnet that will turn the BlackBerry phone to sleep mode when placed in the pouch. How I wish all phones come with this function.

So I’m giving this beautiful BlackBerry phone pouch to one of my blog reader. Condition: You must own a BlackBerry phone.
