Nintendo DS Lite

I’ve been spending some quality time (heh) with my friend’s Nintendo DS Lite (NDS) so here’s little a review even though I know I’m late to the game. The “release” of DS Lite in Singapore came rather late, compared to Japan and the US. And even then, the official distributor is only giving an utterly miserly 3 months warranty for these “local” sets. Pathetic but unsurprising, given the dismal state of Nintendo distributorship in Singapore; the Wii is still not officially released and gamers have to put up with over-priced “export” sets without warranty.

Local Comedy

I caught Hossan Leong’s comedy gig Multiple Personalities Disorder a few evenings ago. Courtesy of a good friend who thought I need a little cheering up since I’ve been feeling little down in the dumps lately. The script was written by Benjamin Lee, aka Mr. Miyagi, and had its share of funny moments, but it fell a little flat at times for me. The theme of attracting foreign talent to Singapore was repeated once too many and wore out quite quickly towards the end for me. You can only beat a dead horse so many times in 90 minutes.

Not everyone agrees with me though. We could tell that a gentleman sitting near us enjoyed it very much though, he laughed at every single punch line (and more) and you could hear him easily even from 10 seats away.

Apparently Broadway Beng star, Sebastian Tan, was in the audience that night. Now that was a brilliant comedy musical, brilliant script and an absolutely wicked performance. It made everyone laugh and celebrate the Beng (and Lian) in all of us. Taking off on the success of his first show, Sebastian will be staging Broadway Beng Returns in May this year, and I’m certainly looking forward to that one.

Le Canard.

Lucky Duck A duck in the US state of Florida has survived gunshot wounds and a two-day stint in a refrigerator.

A hunter shot the duck, wounding it in the wing and leg. Believing the bird was dead, he left it in his fridge at his home in Tallahassee.

The hunter’s wife got a fright when she opened the fridge and the duck lifted its head, a local veterinarian said.

This little duck makes Survivors look wimpy in comparison.
