Fast Food Nation

Just watched this movie, after a long time. Actually i heard a lot about it, and i was eager to see it for myself, especially after watching another similar show, Super Size Me and reading about this movie in the papers.

The premisr is simple - it's based on the book by the same name, where fictionalized events take place based on some research of real events.

It was disappointing, the movie was slow and whatever it was trying to build up didn't really lead to much in the end. There were a few inter-related storylines, but in the end, all weren't resolved, and the main point that the movie wanted to make, well, about the processed beef and all, it didn't really offer anything new, other than trying to portray it in a shocking way.

Super Size Me was definitely better.

Drive Angry

The other day, i was watching this movie called 'Drive Angry' seen it before? It's an action-packed movie, very enjoyable. there were some spectacular car chase scenes in the movie, reminiscient of the Fast and Furious movies i watched some years back.

In these movies, cars crash and bump into each other without much worry and care. Unlike in real life. In real life, a small fender bender or scratch will result in stalled traffic and confrontation.

Accidents Happen

In my (rather short) lifetime, I've had a few minor accidents, but (thankfully) no major accidents before. But i know a few people who have had major accidents, involving more than 2 cars and with severe damage to their automobiles. One even had to be admitted to a hospital for a few days.

Accidents are very unfortunate, but in the event it happens, we should always be know exactly what to do in order to stay calm. Do not panic, make sure you have a good lawyer to advise you on the next step. If you are in the doubt about whether or not you can claim damages from other parties, call O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, the Austin truck accident lawyers specializing in this field.

Two Week Report on Streamyx

I've had Streamyx for just over two weeks now.

If i were to give it a report card, it'd be bad.

Somedays i don't get any connection, some days are okay. But it's the down time that annoys the heck out of me. The last down time was from Thursday night right up to this afternoon. And I'm paying good money for this 'broadband' (and so are lots and lots and lots of people).

Before i subscribed to them, i used to read and hear lots of people including my pals rant and bitch about streamyx, now i can understand why. But it's not that i have an option, it's either this or dial-up. Or no internet.

On the good days, surfing speed varies. Sometimes it's slow, but it's usually adequate. I haven't tested the speed to see whether it's anywhere near 70-80% of the max, does anyone know of any good internet speed websites?


On another note, i bought a computer table for my daughter (not IKEA).

When we brought it back (it was one of those DIY sets pre-pack in flat boxes), we found there was a piece missing - a crucial piece. If fact, the packet of screws and nails was not properly sealed, and they were all rolling around inside box, leaving fine scratches everywhere.

Anyway to cut the short story short, we gave the store a tongue lashing, and it took them more than a week to replace the missing piece. They even had the cheek to say they lost our contact number.


Furniture business seems to be booming. Two more huge furniture malls just opened up down the street. Everyday, i can see loads of people buying new furniture. Not just Chinese folks - Malays and Indians and others.

Economic slowdown? What economic slowdown?
