Xmas 2006 has come and gone. Time passes fast doesn't it? Before long, we'll be well into 2007. I do wish that it will not be as bad as 2006. 2006 was a lousy year for me - so here's wishing that I have a better year ahead of me. Have a happy and healthy one!

Conquest Of Time Epilogue And Some J*D

Well it's a bit delayed but here are some bits on COT. Click on the thumbs for the large version.

A multitude of watches on display. Please click HERE! for the full gallery.

Here are some notable pieces...

Corum had an enamelist show off his skills...

And Lange showed off their trade with the sublime skills of their master engraver...

GP had their atelier tour...

I also attended the JLC Masterclass...

The parts are so tiny! It's so easy to mess up!

On another note, we also attended the Jaquet Droz boutique opening at Starhill. Not to be left behind with Sincere's massive COT, Swiss Union planned a fine evening for us enthusiasts...

The full gallery can be viewed at HERE!

Some fine J*D watches...

The event and people...

Of course, Hannah Tan was there too. I jokingly told her to stop stalking me :P

With Gloria Ting too!

The Host!

Another brilliant gem from Bong Joon Ho after one of my fave Korean movies ever, Memories Of Murder...

Movie Website

Review 1
Review 2

I was not surprised at the quality of the movie, seeing that Song Kang Ho and Bae Doo Na's in it (both extremely fine actors) and couple it with Bong - it simply could not go wrong.

Contrary to what the trailers show, the monster (created by Weta) is not key to the story. Instead, here we have a human story with the characters placed in great adversity due to circumstances and Man's flaws.

So please... for goodness sake... if it's one Korean movie you watch a year, make this one THE ONE!
