    Korea (25 Jun 2011)

    Yup this is a recount of my first overseas adventure with fellow coursemates to Seoul, Korea for a month of summer programme in Sungkyunkwan University (성균관대학교, SKKU). Hence I will be posting some of the pictures that we have taken during our time there.

    The day started with us heading to Changi airport, taking Cathay Pacific to transit in Hong Kong International Airport and then to Seoul. The first aircraft was so much comfortable than the others as it had the new and improved seats as shown below.

    Anyway, sadly my first visit of HK was limited to the airport transit premises and then hours later, finally reached Incheon International Airport. After the collection of our bags, we took the airport limousine service to Koart Ville, which is located near to Sungshin Women’s University subway station.

    The entire bus journey took around an hour or so and it was raining when we alighted with our bags. Our hostel was a little hard to find, and the rain and our heavy bags seriously dampened our spirits. We finally found our hostel after dragging bags to a wrong place, and a young couple led us to the right location. It was close to 12am by the time we checked in. Dumping our bags, I went out for a late supper at this 24 hours KFC near our hostel despite being tired and hungry.. Hunger wore out you see…

    Day 2 will be posted soon…

    New Year’s Eve & Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

    New Year's Eve & Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

    Today I had indulged in a little movie marathon – New Year’s Eve & Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

    New Year’s Eve @ @

    Well it has been up since 7 Dec if I’m not wrong. I was attracted by the cast – well that’s the selling point isn’t it.. and realised it was by the director of Valentine’s Day hence the identical multiple stories method. I have wanted to watch it for long but then R-T gave a rather bad review …

    By then my friend caught it and said it’s not bad hence today my little indulgence.

    The movie, was generally light hearted, humorous at some point of time. However, it also told me what the ending of a year is about, how one should ponder and reflect on the year’s events, actions, how to make amendments perhaps. The story that touches my heart most was how the father passed away  after watching the drop with his loved one, despite what was implied as a bad father?, well one who drove away all those that had cared for him…

    There was a story on the nurse with her beloved who was in military. I guess this is to reach out to those whose beloved are out there dealing in dangerous positions.

    Similar to Vday, there’s no favourite story for me. Despite so, the movie as a whole is interesting, most importantly, it did touch my heart.

     

    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows @ @

    A sequel to the first movie, we now knew that Prof Moriarty was the man with interesting gear, the employer of Adler. Despite the sneaks seen from VIP access and the first movie, the movie continued to stun me with their way of filming – the slow motions, the logic of Holmes ‘foreseeing consequences’.

    Overall the movie is as interesting as it should be, the sarcasm, the funny moments, the actions and the battle of wits.

    If possible, I do wish for a third movie.
