Hello March 2013

1 Mar 2013 – Bye-bye Feb!

march_calendarSomeone tell me what was the occasion 9 months ago before March??? There are at least 8 family and 19 friends’ birthdays this month and do not blame it on St Patrick 🙂

TingTing commented that 9 months before Mar is Jun (start of summer holidays). Now that says it all regarding to the timing of Linn’s birth in Mar and May’s in Sep (Christmas holidays 9 months before Sep)… 🙂 🙂

215597_10100405492381939_94147633_nThu: appreciations to Hannah for meeting up. Do understand that she only have very few days with her family and friends before returning to Laos. Good luck to her afternoon appointment and enjoy the stay. Trying to remember how I met this adventurous young lady, but seems blur besides that she was studying in Denmark and then ventured on to Trondheim/Norway and somehow I provided her Stenseth’s contact if she needed help…

Edited (3 Mar) and this from Hannah...umm i believe i found out about you when you had that talk about walking the appalachian, but i couldn’t make it to the talk coz i was in norway, or maybe sweden, at that time, so i got my friend weixiong to buy a copy of your book for me instead. and then i must have emailed you and started some conversation about having been on the appalachian for a week myself, and then it just started from there..!

Trips to KCH/Sarawak and to Pusan/Korea (will be the 1st and hopefully the cherry blossoms are blooming) booked and confirmed for this month. New nickname given by Margaret in France, ADA – Always Departing Amy 🙂 🙂 🙂 and will be looking forward to catching up with her in France after the UK Coast-Coast hike.

pc_189x272Told myself that I will watch Argo on the big screen if it wins the Oscar and being true to myself and my words I did just that. Good movie and even when one knows the ending, the suspense is directed with taste to keep me on the edge on the seat. When the real incident happened in 1979-80, was too busy raising the family but do remember vaguely.

Argo****at the peak of the Iranian revolution, a CIA was involved to free 6 US diplomats who have found shelter at the home of the Canadian ambassador. Argo tells the story of a plan to convince Iran that the six men were just members of a camera crew who were scouting the area for a science fiction film titled ‘Argo’.

Slate.com: not every critic was pleased to see Argo win Best Picture at the Oscars. After its nomination was announced last month, Kevin B. Lee trashed the film and states that this year’s worst Best Picture nominee. Disagree here but there are some valid points.

pc_189x272Ah Boys To Men: Part 2***a SIN production by Jack Neo focuses on the theme of the definitive path for all young men in SIN National Service/NS. It is SIN first military themed film in 10 years, as well as the first movie duology, with the first part being released in 2012. Have not seen Part I, will try to get hold of a copy someday. As the title says it all, it is about boys learning to be men and the best place is in NS, especially for the SIN boys… 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
