Up to date --- and greatest movies of 2010.

I am not the most prolific of bloggers, as anyone (if there is anyone), who reads this blog regularly, can see. I write when I am motivated to do so, when I feel I have something to say, however, to be frank, I sometimes do not write, even when I feel I have something to say. This being the case, let me bring you up to date.

I spent a month (mid-Oct to mid-Nov 2010 ) in Phnom Penh, and I had a great time. PP is a great city, pleasant, friendly, small(ish), interesting. I look back on that month happily. I then, slowly, made my way back to Perth, Australia. First from PP to the Thai town of Trat, then to Pattaya, then Bangkok (Khao San Rd), then to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. From Sing I took a freighter (the Palermo) to Fremantle. At Freo my friend Jeff took me to my house. (Long story here, my house was in poor condition, after 18 months of rent. Even things were stolen.)

My review of their service is DO NOT use them. Here are the details of the company I am not recommending:

Kim Nguyen
Successful Leaders Realty 
Newpark Shopping Cnt
Warwick WA 6064.

In summary, 2010 was more good than bad. I learnt a few things (many of which should have been obvious), did many new things, saw many new places, and had fun.

* Here, just for amusement, are my list of good movies for 2010.

Inception— this was the only movie I thought was outstanding.
Red— entertaining, in a mindless sort of way.
The American—interesting.
Daybreakers—not great, but could have, maybe, been great(er).
Predators—patchy, but I liked.
Sherlock Holmes—enjoyed, could somehow have been better (but I will confess not a R.D. jnr fan).

That is it, six movies, one per two months, out of all the crud Hw produces. Get with it guys.

Signing out till next time.
