Panda Panda

I'm back in Thailand now, after a terrific but exhausting trip to Sabah. There was a lot that I wanted to post while I was there, but I just didn't have the time or energy. The project I was working on required me to get up around 05:00 every day, even though I usually only got to sleep around midnight or after (thus putting me into an even more sleep-deprived state than I normally operate in). If things go well, I'll be able to say more about the project later in the year.

Anyway, after unpacking and answering a tonne of emails, I decided I needed a break. Aey, Mean and I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie, which was the first time I've seen a movie in an actual theater for many years. We went to the new Siam Paragon complex in Bangkok (my first time there, since I hate despise shopping).

The movie was so-so at best. Characters weren't well developed, and the alien-like inter-dimensional beings were cheesy. BUT, there was one good thing...the trailer for the upcoming movie Kung Fu Panda!

I'm a big fan of animated movies, with films like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Madagascar, Open Season, TMNT and others at the top of my list. Based on the trailer, Kung Fu Panda looks like it's going to be really funny. There were really cool leaflets at the theater promoting the movie in Thai too. I had to grab one because it looks so cool.

So, mediocre Indiana Jones movie, but hysterical Kung Fu Panda trailer and cool leaflet.
