James Bond, Quantum of Solace
The Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian

SH was to be discharged today and I arrived at the hospital at 10am to help get it done. As Murphy would have it, almost everything went berserk, the people and the system and the server, and we only managed to walk out of the hospital at 5.45pm. It was nothing but waiting, waiting and waiting and it was really a testing of our patience.

But as a celebration of a clean bill of health, we went for a movie: James Bond, Quantum of Solace.

It did not quite suit my taste - the movie was too action-packed and so fast moving I had a hard time trying to work out the more subtle sides of the movie. And Daniel Craig looked more cool and composed in Casino Royale than this one.

When we came home, I watched The Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian on DVD.

Oh, I love this movie and I find it much more entertaining compared to the book, which is something unusual for me. What I did not understand was why at the close of the movie did they choose to return to London. I would have stayed and be queen.



  1. I haven't seen either of these yet, but they sound interesting. Thanks!

  2. Hi pearlie,

    i'm glad to know SH is fine. As for the Penvensies, Aslan told them in the book (I can't remember if that was in the film) they couldn't stay, so they didn't have a choice!

  3. BK,
    It was kinda brought up in the movie but not like you said that Aslan said the couldn't stay, it was more indirect. I just wished they could though ...
