Wed: this is the first (South Bridge Rd, starting at the junctions of Cross St to Sago Lane) of the many more which will be blogged and posted for the CNY. The ariel view (pix credit to Eugene Tang) gives a better perspective of the length and the best CNY decorations ever in SIN. The Year of the SNAKE starts 10Feb! Appreciations to nephew Clement for a lovely afternoon in Chinatown.
Checked out SIN City Gallery at URA, highly recommended for anyone who is interested in the development of SIN thru’ the decades. The pix of then and now show how far SIN has progressed.
Silver Linings Playbook***Pat has lost everything. He now finds himself living back with his parents after spending time in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious young woman with problems of her own, things get complicated…
Arbitrage***suspense thriller – buying low and selling high-depends on a person’s ability to determine the true value of any given market. Billionaire hedge fund magnate Robert is the very portrait of success in American business. But finds himself desperately trying to sell his trading empire to a major bank before the extent of his fraud is discovered… would not have seen this if not for Richard Gere!
Intouchables*****a true story about a quadriplegic aristocrat who was injured in a paragliding accident and a young man from the less desirable neighbourhood. The paralyzed millionaire and the Senegalese parolee he hired to take care of him, how two totally different worlds create a unique friendship. Beautiful acting with good humour.
- Antoine: These street guys have no pity.
- Philippe: That’s what I want…no pity
