Last day of CNY aka Lantern Festival

The Lantern Festival, 元宵节 (pinyin: Yuánxiāojié) is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunar year in the Chinese calendar. It is not to be confused with the Mid-Autumn Festival, which is also known as the "Lantern Festival" in locations such as Singapore, Malaysia. During the Lantern Festival, children go out at night to temples carrying paper lanterns and solve riddles on the lanterns. It officially ends the Chinese New year. In ancient times, the lanterns were fairly simple, for only the emperor and noblemen had large ornate ones; in modern times, lanterns have been embellished with many complex designs.

I should have go home last Friday! Today is a public holiday, as a replacement of yesterday's Thaipusam celebration. I actually had 4 days off including today. I can make it 5 days, as to skip Tuesday's class. Hey, I haven't skip any of the Tuesday's classes yet! :0 But I'm so fool enough not to realized it. By the time I found out, there is only 1 day left. Should have gone back to celebrate the last part of Chinese New Year with family. Ape lah saya ni!!

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Can't wait for the release of this movie. Hope it won't disapoint me. Cos this movie have 13 nominations alone in the Academy awards, and some other awards. Here's some info about the movie:
"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," adapted from the story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: A man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story set in New Orleans from the end of World War I, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be. Director by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond, "Benjamin Button," is a grand tale of a not so ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the keys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.
