  • Nine and Thirteen on stage together

    Posted July 21 by Jack Yan

    Doctor Whos no. 9 and 13 act alongside each other. Great seeing Christopher Eccleston and Jodie Whittaker here, in Antigone (an interesting version set in the 1970s).

  • What a disappointing version of The Saint

    Posted July 20 by Jack Yan

    What a disappointing remake of The Saint—shame this will probably be Sir Roger Moore’s last screen credit. Too many establishing shots (worse than the old ITC series showing a city name in big letters when everything that followed was at Elstree), very evident where extra sequences were ...

  • LAITH'S 8TH BIRTHDAY

    Posted July 20 by Leila

       Last Tuesday was Laith's 8th Birthday. Time sure flies.. I could still remember his smell when I first held him in my arm. Now he is a big boy. He is over protective like his dad. I remember when we were on the ferry to Pangkor. He was sitting beside me then he told me he wanted to sit...

  • QotD: Life is Learning

    Posted July 16 by Suni

    QotD: You are learning something new. What is it?  How to rest in the Lord more effectively. God has been really teaching me what true patience and rest are all about recently. He wants me to learn how to be BELOVED by God and rest in His presence.

  • KLCC Tower bridge visit

    Posted July 11 by Leila

    One of my colleague left his tsuff at the Malaysian Petroleum Club last Thursday and he came to me and said "hey, you've never been to the Malaysian Petroleum Club right? I left something there, you wann join me? You can check out the bridge from the club" I immediately said yes.   Honestly, ...

  • A good book let down by annoying errors

    Posted July 8 by Jack Yan

    I bought Steven Parissien’s The Life of the Automobile: a New History of the Motor Car, which started off as a good history. I’m 300-odd pages in now and the amount of mistakes is really worrying. There’s also a shocking lack of editing (one part repeated, albeit in different langu...

  • Windows 10 actually upgraded on the first attempt

    Posted July 6 by Jack Yan

    Incredible: Windows 10 actually updated successfully to the latest version on the first attempt.   On this desktop computer, the Anniversary update took 11 attempts. The standing joke (mine) was that as it was called Windows 10, you needed more than 10 attempts for things to work. &nb...

  • Trip to Pangkor Island

    Posted July 6 by Leila

    To those who celebrate, Happy Eid! Or we Malaysian would say "Selamat Hari Raya!" It's our first Eid without Zahed this year.. Hopefully we'll be able to celebrate together next year. Since Zahed is not around this time around, we (me, Laith & my Parents in law) is in no mood to celebrate so we deci...

  • The true meaning of Patience

    Posted July 2 by Suni

    So the Lord has been dealing with me about patience. Firstly , what is patience? From the Bible we know it is one of the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22). The Bible has a lot to say about patience.   From the bing dictionary we know that patience is : the capacity to accept or ...

    Dear 6 1/2 year old me, Cherish the moments you have with your family that are happy...especially those with your Grammy and Dad. One day, those memories will be all you have left of them. Some really messed up stuff is coming your way, stuff you won't understand for a long time... but you just C...

  • QotD: magazine tycoon

    Posted June 18 by Jack Yan

    QotD: if you were to have your own magazine, what would the title be?  This could be a trick question … I do have my own magazine and it’s called Lucire. The name came about when my friend Sylvie and I were hanging in her office in early 1997. She suggested it, and I said, ‘...

  • Goodbye to Cyberfox

    Posted June 16 by Jack Yan

    Cyberfox, my regular web browser for years, started eating RAM on my computer like crazy over the last week or so. I would see Cyberfox eat over 5½ Gbyte in the Windows task manager, and other programs would actually fail as a result.   It’s a shame: it’s another case of...

    Posted June 15 by Leila

    Hoot!  Hello :) I have been away for a long time. I have been painting a lot and been taking classes too. Here is my latest project     what do you think? I've improved a lot right?

  • WWII kids

    Posted June 12 by Jack Yan

    In a comment to a Facebook post from fellow BC member Patricia Volonakis Davis, discussing how the WWII generation were the strongest people: Dad tells me about going to school hunched down (because bullets flew overhead), putting leaves over your noses because of the smell of corpses, and then liv...

    Posted June 9 by Liv

    So DragonCon this year was the first time I wore my Batman armor to a major con. As many of you know I've had to deal with issues regarding bigots who can't seem to wrap their mind around the idea of a black guy cosplaying Batman, because "Batman is historically white, there are plenty of black ...
