Apple Education Event

Now you can read a textbook as watching a movie, check a graphic like playing video game, and again, you could get thousands of book with auto updates from the author in one iPad.  I feel I was born 20 yrs early…

CE Election gets more fun

Yesterday Fanny Law, the director of the campaign office of CY Leung referred a saying of an officer from the central government that both Henry Tang and CY Leung are acceptable candidates to the 2012 CE election.  It is really a good move and I thought it just changed everything.

With this news from the central government publicized, I expect the new round of PO survey will show a larger difference between the 2 candidates.

About the movie

Just watched it last Sunday, and I think David Fincher did a great job adapting the novel onto the large screen.

I’ve read the novel two weeks ago (If you have followed my blog you should know that,  but I know you didn’t).  The novel itself is good, focusing in details and never lack of twists.  But to someone who had watched tons of movie/TV drama that are full of blood / gun / blade / and body parts, it is just OK.  However, the movie tighten the loose part, delete  the unnecessary characters and even change the original story, and everything just make sense and exciting!

If you haven’t watched the movie yet, I would recommend you go and give it a shot.  There’s no need to read the novel first.  However, if you do want to read the original, I would assume you will feel the same way as I did.

Rate: ★★★☆☆

Comment:  The beer on TV ad these days in HK.  But I think fame is a bit over flavor.  It’s a bit bitter than I expected and I’m not quite used to its taste.

Rate: ★★★★☆

Comment:  First it’s my wife’s favorite and now it becomes ours.  It should be the first Japanese beer that we first drink of.  A little bitter at the beginning and will become smooth as it going.  However, after we discover YEBISU we think it is the second best Japanese beer we have tried yet.

YEBISU TRADITIONAL BREW

Rate: ★★★★☆

Comment: One of my favorite beer for movie watching served with spicy potato chip.  Taste is strong with good flavor of wheat.  You just want to have another one with another bag of chips and keep going.
