Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen movies you’ve seen that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me because I’m interested in seeing what movies my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note — upper right hand side.) I hope you participate, even if you didn’t get tagged!

I've to go through my list of rated movies on flixter to come up with the list. cool

- Platoon
- Ton Gun - The best air combat for its time
- When Harry met Sally
- Before Sunrise
- Matrix
- Expect the Unexpected 非常突然 - Life is full of surprises and regrets
- Midway - Watched one too many time on TVB when I was a kid
- Sin City - A twisted love story
- Black Hawk Down - It's all about the men next to you
- In the Mood for Love 花樣年華 - the light, color, music
- The Longest Day - Before Saving Private Ryan, that's The Longest Day
- Lost in Translation - bring back memory of Tokyo
- Saving Private Ryan
- Mission Impossible II - Full of John W.'s style

Yahoo Home page, the equivalence of Google's iGoogle, just got a face-lift.

Old Yahoo home page New Yahoo home page

But it feels like the change is done for the sake of making a change. I don't see it's better than before. The only interesting feature is the ability to (sort of) mashup non-Yahoo page to the left side panel. In addition, I'm not the type that like to use mouse-over pop-up, so the left panel sort of annoying to me.

There is a water reservoir in my neighbourhood, which I jog around it from time to time.

The snow has pretty much all gone now, it's time to review my progress this season.

As usual, I captured some video to show visually my improvement. The video this year is not so good, as the camera's in-video zoom function setting has screwed up....

With some frame-by-frame observations, some critique:
- On the toe-side, the edge angle has increased, pivoting seem quite smoothly. However, the body lean out too much and caused a skid out on the lower part of the turn.
- It should be with a more aggressive cow-boy stance to drop down the knee, and increase speed to keep the momentum.
- On the heel-side, I was able to hang pretty low and create that edge. But there is a skid on the top of the turn caused by body weight to the back of the board and a slide at back-side.
- More pressure on the leading leg (or less on the back leg) and even earlier pivoting+anticipation to steer smoothly into the turn.
- Also need to stop trying too hard and assume that robot stance and stiff hand position. Relax is the form.

Some new idea:
- Focus on more cow-boy stance on heel-side, as I already does on toe-side.
- More knee headlight steering.
- Relax!

If you see things like this, you are probably very drunk.

Saw inside of this church @ Daihung's blog. I happened to walk by it back in January and took a few pictures.

Daihung, come back and see it again. cool

I've been spending the past little while trying out NP_PicasaGallery to integrate PicasaWeb photo album to my site.

Admun Photoblog

Ultimately, I'd like to setup a photo blog using PicasaWeb. This way, I can upload pictures from my G1 and automatically show them on my blog.

I'm still tweaking the setup to see what I can do. cool
