Rant: Time, I lack of it.

I am seriously lack of time. My priorities were and still are never right. I take time out to blog, Facebook, read manga, and watch youtube while I still have stacks of work that need to be done.

Movie: Subaru

Movie: Subaru

This is a worthy movie that should be played in local cinemas. It is slated to be released on 20th March 2009, which is yesterday. However, it is only in Japan and thus far, Hong Kong and maybe in selected countries. Singapore has no release date for this movie. I am waiting for the DVD release, or a torrent of the DVDRip.

Salut d’Amor and 杨丞琳 – 庆祝 What is the similarity between them? For those with keen ears, it is the tune. In 杨丞琳’s 庆祝, the tune of Salut d’Amour is being used.
