I have gotten my Superman Returns DVD.
I had the intention to get myself a decent region 3 box set with comic as recommended by my trustworthy Supes-fan.
However, when I came across this region 6 version.
Read on to find out more...
For the price of just S$15.90.
You get an authentic Superman Returns Region 6 DVD.
These region 6 DVDs were made in China and dedicated to the China video market,
hence that explains the lower price tag.
The cover art comes with the distinctive Chinese media sticker and Chinese characters.
The box is a sleeve-type and the Superman and title were embossed.
As expected, china-made DVDs usually do not come with English subtitles.
The movie is set to Chinese subs as default while the other option is to turn it off.
Since the conversation in the movie was not too hard to understand,
I can do with Chinese subs.
Nevertheless, the full-featured Bonus Disc came with English and Chinese subs.
The contents slides out of the sleeve and unfolds in a two-fold booklet revealing the discs.
I am pretty much impressed by the presentation!
For that price, 2 thumbs up!
Available at Mustafa Centre and I believe major video retailers.

A big welcome to the Barbie dolls!!
No, you haven't heard wrongly.
Thanks to Shaun Wong for tipping me off on the sale at Raffles City Christmas Barbie Toy Fair.
I managed to grab Superman, Lois Lane and Mary Jane.
Well, its not too bad.
I bought the comic characters and not regular dolls.
So don't call me a fag.
I had long wanted to just get the Lois Lane as she looked damn sweet and realistic. But the regular price of S$24.90 is beyond what I will spend for Barbie.
But clearance at S$12.90 is a different story now.
I haven't really considered Superman though, because the look of Ken as Supes is wrong. Ken is has quite a pansy look. But Lois needs her partner!
How can I resist a beautiful red-head in a wedding gown? I chose to buy Mary Jane over Invisible Woman because Invisible Woman hasn't got the unique features to make me part with another S$12.90.

The sign reads,
Handmade Katsu Sandwich: Romankan Yokohama.
My first thought was how to make a sandwich without hands?
The stall had an interesting look like a bar counter, with counter seats and regular seats. The staff wore a french maid apron too.
I never got any pictures of the stall taken as there were plenty of people dining.
They served only katsu (fried breaded chicken/pork cutlets). We ordered a regular pork cutlet and curry cutlet. Basically, apart from the jug of curry, the Curry Cutlet set is the same as mine, less the the salad. The curry is a thick gravy which is also very tasty. You can taste some real mashed up potato and meat fibers. The cutlet was fantastic! Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. All sets come with miso soup and rice. For the price of $11 (Pork Katsu set) and $14 (Curry set), without any '++', this is a must try!

Views from Biopolis Phase I. The existing phase, project by JTC.
Recently, this artisitic sculpture was moved to the Epicenter outside Matrix. I once commented that art is a thin line between trash and treasure. The effort was much more appreciated knowing that this is to commemorate the research efforts during the SARS period.

The upcoming Biopolis Phase II, a project by Ascendas. Though they were officially opened for some operations, there were still plenty of on-going construction.

Before I left the Biopolis compound, I was stopped by a walking security who was munching away. He told me that I need permisson from the estate owner for photography. I nodded and replied, 'Ok, I'll stop.' but I thought I don't need a Liscence to Shoot. I'm promoting our local R&D hub!
Leaving Biopolis and heading to Holland Drive, you will come across the Malaysian Railway which is still in use.
An interesting graffiti beside the railway track.
