The David Moyes sacking

I have spent too much time reading football news this week. The David Moyes sacking has occupied my attention throughout. The entire comedy, a media circus as such, was played out in the space of a drawn out three days. It is not surprising that Moyes was aggrieved at his treatment by Manchester United aka Manure.

The drama will continue the next season when a new manager is appointed.

Singapore Indoor Stadium






I remember visiting this stadium twice. I was there once in the mid to late 90s for a Yanni concert. I was there in 2002 for a Pet Shop Boys concert too. I remember that the acoustics of the place wasn't ideal.

Installing Adobe Acrobat Reader

I remember the old days when Adobe Acrobat Reader was only about 4MB in size. Today, it is several hundred MB and installation is a long process, tying up system resources and more. Somehow, installing other programmes is not as painful as installing Acrobat Reader, except maybe for Java updates.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls


I finished the adventure last night. I had expected the expansion to Diablo III to be short and it was short, extremely short. I finished it on Normal in under six hours spread over a few days.

At level 59, I am trying the Master difficulty level on Adventure Mode. When I hit level 60, I will try Torment I. I will toy around a bit more before stopping all play.

The expansion was fun, I hope to see another.

The weekend was too short. I wish I had spent more time with Sweetie. It didn't help that I was not feeling too good on Friday.

A nice evening

I had the longest drive of my life yesterday. I had driven almost two hours, accompanied by dear Sweetie and her little bear. It was a slow and enjoyable drive, amidst the streets filled with vehicles weaving in and out, each attempting in a futile attempt to forge ahead somehow.

It was a nice weekend with Sweetie, though the food wasn't good, it was way below par for a restaurant in Restaurant Week. However, we had fun. We also watched '12 Years a Slave' before that.

The walk by Marina Bay and the lights was lovely.

Pet Shop Boys - Love etc.

Driving

More than 80 minutes of driving yesterday, much of which were at 80 to 90 km/h. I am exhausted. Heheh.
