Wanna Be The Biggest Loser?

Ironically it is this reality show that is kicking me back to the gym. Well, at least, kicking me back to start again. The Biggest Loser (Season 4).

I watched the beginning of Season 4 while waiting for CapalPerak to arrive in KL. The show made my eyes teary, and I applaud these people for making a huge effort to make a difference in their lives.

Big, huge, lovely people, men and women, are competing to be the biggest weight loser. There is a cash reward at the end of it, but despite being sent home, it's humbling to see that these people are still continuing to lose weight.

Their motivation? Self esteem.

Movie I'm Waiting for...

The World Wide Web or The WWW or The Internet or The Net was bornt approximately 20 years ago; in a place called CERN. What started of as network file sharing exploded not so long after into one of the biggest and most successful invention ever. Well, at least, in my own opinion.

In just 20 years, this electronic miracle has become a part of our daily life. So significant it is that some people, addicted to its potent spell, become depressed when not able to go online. A faulty undersea cable can cause million of dollars in revenue, not to mention crappy digital communication to those who are far away from family and rely heavily on Skype or Yahoo! availability.

Amazing, this Internet thingy. And the fever for it never goes down. It seems like as long as there is energy powering the Net, it will keep on growing. Good things, bad things, really shocking things, etc.

Not too long ago, a brilliant conspiracy author uses CERN as his main entity and it gave birth to Angles and Demons novel. While this is the first novel, it's his second novel that hit the world so fast and became the first motion picture adapted from his novel; The DaVinci Code. Dan Brown is striking gold again and again. I wonder if I will be able to write like him.

Hitting the cinemas very soon is a new movie based on his first novel; Angels & Demons. I have read all his books and although you cannot deny some of the facts are twisted to suit the flow of the storyline, and changed to make things more exciting, I enjoy reading all of them. I'm looking forward to a film adaption of the Digital Fortress, which is so much closer to my milieu. Even so, reading it, with what little knowledge I have in computers, it's just doesn't ring right here and there. Nevertheless, it's a breathless ride, just ignore the factual faux and you're off to enjoy it to the brink.

I'm holding my horses for Angels & Demons, the movie. I hope it will not disappoint as The DaVinci Code had, a little, to me. Tom Hanks is a good choice for the lead character Robert Langdon. Suits him well. I just hope he gives more life to Mr. Langdon.

Hmm... again.

I am back in KL. Since last Saturday. I find myself less incline to blog these days. I wonder why. Maybe the fact that my life is pretty much the same day in day out these days. It might also the case of not being so anonymous anymore.

More and more friends are opting to stop blogging. It's sad. Lots of moral police around and those with holier-than-thou attitude people. I wish this people would just live their lives and aspire to be better person themselves without being so condescending on other people. No one is perfect, not even these self elected behaviour officers.

It's so lame.
