SH 5000 - Basic Sciences for SHE

One of my friend has said that Prof Foo is a funny chap, which I kind of agree, but when it comes to test or exam, I would rather refer him as the silent killer. Today exam paper was no exception. The paper was not really tough, but it was definitely time consuming to do, not to mention tricky too. One wrong step and it will have wasted you 20 minutes of your time. With only 150 minutes to spare, time must not be wasted. I managed to finish the paper on the dot, and I don't really know how to do 10 marks of 1 question, so I think that was lost. Confident of at least a B- but I think I can try for a B. Lets see next month result, to be released via .....SMS. What a way to start a day... hah

Expectation: B (Actual: B)

SH 5105 - Noise in the Occupational Environment

1 down, 1 more to go. Now, I am not a noise noob! Haha, after this, the lecturer says we can become a noise monitoring officer, but at the current market cut-throat price, not worth it.

The paper was kind of easy, should be capable of at least getting a B, but I feel I should be able to try for a B+. We shall see at the end of December.

Expectation: B+ (Actual: A)

In Time

Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, the ageing gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man is accused of murder when he inherits a fortune of time from a dead upper class man, though too late to help his mother from dying. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as 'time keepers'.  [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]
Strangely, Justin Timberlake seems to spring up everywhere in movies recently. Anyway, imagine a world where people stops aging at 25, and time has been used as a form of currency instead. Poor people works from day to day just to keep on living, while rich people can live on indefinitely. For a person to be immortal, many poor people has to die for him. Scary thought. A unique, interesting storyline, not draggy and I recommend it if you want a taste of something different. I kind of like the anti-aging part, looking the way you are at 25 forever, but to keep chasing time to live? Scary, I simply have no time!

Friends with Benefits

Synopsis: Young female head-hunter Jamie (Mila Kunis) in New York convinces potential recruit Dylan (Justin Timberlake) to leave his job in San Francisco behind and take up a new one in the Big Apple. Despite an attraction to each other, both realise they're everything they've been running from in a relationship and decide to become friends with benefits. It's the perfect arrangement until both finally realise there's no such thing as no strings attached. [Source: Yahoo! Singapore Movies]

Interesting concept but the idea is not new. A few movies have already been made around the concept. However, it is still great to see Justin Timberlake on screen. I know he can sing but act? I guess this is a breakthrough for him. Well, if you have nothing to do for the weekend, you can try to catch this movie to pass your time.
