Batman V Superman // the review

I love the Man of Steel movie and I was looking forward to the second movie. I totally did not expect a movie like Batman V Superman. This is one of the movie in my to watch lists so when the movie start playing I immediately bought two tickets for me and my son.



What the movie is all about?
" Fearing the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the man of steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It's up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis." excerpt from imdb.com

What do I think?
- first of all the movie is too long 2 hours and 31 minute
- too much punching around and it makes my head dizzy
- I am not a fan  of comic books, so I have no idea how accurate the story was to the original book but don't like the ending
- this movie is way too dark for my taste. So much sadness and anger going around
-  I like that they introduce Wonder Woman in the movie and I am so looking forward to watch more of her story. I love watching Wonder Woman tv series when I was growing up can't wait to see how they develop her story next.
- will Justice League be next?
- so, will Ryan Reynolds be Green Lantern or Deadpool ? hehehe

I recommend this movie if you love watching action movie and a fan of DC Comic. As much as  I love Henry Cavill, I still prefer Marvel superheroes .

Life or something like it [March 2016]

If I have to choose just one photo for today, this will be it. In less than two months a lot has changed at the office and one of them is the people I work with. I am so lucky to have meet and work with these beautiful and talented ladies and gentleman. 

sps2016

 1. I can't believed in less than three months I have welcome three new member of my team. I think if I did not take the time to capture this moment I might not remember who's in and who's out. 

2. I am drooling over iPad Pro 9.7" after watching Apple March 21st event last Tuesday. Finally the upgrade I have been waiting for since last year. I am a fan of the original iPad and I can't never go bigger than that. How I wish that the Apple Pencil, I wish it works with my iPad Air 2.

3. I still think Apple Watch is the coolest watch I have ever owned. I realised that I have not wear any other watch since I wear this watch last year. It has all the things that I needed. I am super excited that Apple reduced the price for the Apple Watch. I still think they can afford to sell them cheaper.

4. I am looking forward for April. Lots of things happening in April. Somehow the budget cut that has been going around in all government sector makes me happy. No unnecessary travelling and no food during meetings. 

5. I am excited to start another beach body program - 21 day fix. I really admire Autumn Calabrese energy and of course her fat free body. These workout really makes me sweat even though I was only doing lunges. I hope I can loose at least 2 or 3 kg with her program.

6. I am easily dehydrated lately due to the high temperature here. Some days the temperature reached almost 34 C, which is a bit high. Drinking 2 litter of water is not enough anymore. I need at least 5 litter of water daily.

7. I am so disappointed with Netflix lately. I am thinking of canceling my subscription. I can't stream all of my favourite TV Shows anymore. 

8. I am extremely happy with iflix . They have most of the content that I love and they are adding more and more. I can even download a few of tv shows to watch later when there was no internet around. This is a cool feature to have. I hope that iflix will be available on Apple TV 4 soon.

That's all for now.......

My reaction to iPad Pro 9.7 inch 😍

Early this morning I watched the Apple Event March 21st, 2016 on apple website. I am not really obsess with it to watched the keynote live late at night. I am still ok watching the recorded keynote the next morning.
 (photo credit from internet free stock photo)

Luckily the keynote wasn't that long. Love the 40 years in 40 seconds video. I really like the simplicity of the video.
They spend almost closed to half of the keynote talking about their initiative to save the environment which I think it's a great cause but I'm not sure it's suitable for this event.

They talked about the new band for apple watch like two minutes. I love that they decreased the price of the apple watch. I think they can go lower to attract more people to apple watch.

On that note I have been wearing apple watch for about six months now and I realised that I have not wear any other watch since. I just can't go back to wear a dumb watch. Hemmmm...

iPhone SE ??? I have no comment on that, it's a personal choice regarding the size of a phone. This definitely an upgrade for people who love iphone 5 size. I think if they released the phone with the iPhone 6, I might choose iPhone SE instead. I was one of the people who love the size of iPhone 5 but after using iPhone 6 plus I just can't go back to smaller screen size.

(photo is from screen shot from iPad Air while watching the keynote)

Now the iPad Pro 9.7" ( is this the iPad Pro mini or the iPad Air 3???), I am loving this iPad so far. It's everything that I wanted in an iPad especially the true tone display and anti reflecting coating. And it support Apple Pencil. I just hope that my bamboo fine stylus will work on the new iPad Pro.(oh boy they make this so confusing?!! I do miss the time when they only introduce one ipad at a time so we can call it the new iPad). Thank goodness they still keep the 3.5mm headphone jack. The only thing that might get in the way between me and my new ipad is the price. I am eyeing the rose gold model. I am so looking forward to end of March.

Do I wish that Apple make a macbook like Microsoft Surface book? Yes I do or something better than Surface book. Touch screen laptop is the way of the future. I do miss the time when Apple Event excite me with their innovation and technology that is out of this world. Now it feel like they are competing with other company.

Saying thank you

Part of cultivating a good life is saying thank you. I received this thank you email from twitter this morning. I can't believe it has been ten years since the first day I tweet. Has it been that long?


Anyway this small thank you email from twitter got me thinking about all of my blog readers. Hanizeyecandy has been around for about eight years now and have gained a fair amount of readers.

Through out the years you have follow part of my journey in life, the good, the bad and the ugly. You have been here to witness my obsession with my kids, scrapbooking, photography and lately planners. It has been a wild ride. In a way this blog has been like a journal a.k.a memory keeping for me.

So today I would like to say thank you all for reading and thank you for coming back. I really appreciate it. You are the best!!! πŸ’‹πŸ’‹❤️❤️
