If any of you watched Die Hard 4.0 and enjoyed the innuendo, check out this NGTV Justin Long Interview. He says the most incredible slashtastic things about the movie: I can't believe they allowed it on an official interview. There's even a Brokeback Mountain montage to Die Hard 4.0 shots. And Justin Timberlake nearly played Bruce Willis's son in the movie. *cracks up so hard.

By way of mangy_mongrel, who actually had a hilarious result here.

minrathous has been doing some absolutely amazing scanning work: she's put up the Zelos-Seles backstory from the Extra Load manga up here for download, and Chapter 18 of the Abyss manga (Guy and Luke reunite! ♥ But! At Yulia City, not Aramis Well!) and the Ion-Anise extra up here (both posts community-locked).

You saw the Oriental Puh Pearl Tower! xD I'm so happy! Thank you so much for sharing your pictures! It's really interesting to see Shanghai through your, uh, camera. xD

I hope you had a really great time! ♥

Here's Part 3. xD This is like a scavenger hunt, wtf. Last part will be up in an hour, but I hope you'll be ASLEEP by then?

xDDD Shanghai, indeed. I didn't have as much time there as I might have liked: it would have been nice to spend half a day at the Yu Gardens.

I wish I could have taken a picture of the Oriental Pearl Tower that suitably expressed its gayness. It really does look like a Dist-the-Rose version of the Atomium.

XDDDDDDDDD Thank you so much! ;) I completely need to go clean out my computer and free up LOTS of space for this one. Thank you so much! ♥

Awww! I don't think I've been to the Yu Gardens, but Jane's mother brought food back from there once I think. O.o If I understood her correctly. *laughs!*

I ... can't see it. xD I've tried very hard! I just can't see how the Oriental Pearl Tower and the Atomium are connected. *puzzled!* xD

You're welcome! Here's the final part! xD Take your time, though... They'll be up for 80 (or 90? O.o) days according to Gigasize! ;)

*hugs* That's quite a day! And oh god that was the most amazing interview full of actor faggotry that I have ever seen.

Conveyancing...I am currently working at that department of the law firm. They say is the relatively less harsh department so they let you start there first. So all I do these days is help buying and selling their houses/apartments...

I thought you started work already? Or am I mistaken since you still have to go to law school?

And you went to Shanghai! For work or holiday?
7th-Aug-2007 06:04 pm (UTC) - *HUGS TIGHT!* *BEAMS*

! You're in a conveyancing department now? *beams* That's great! I hope the work isn't too hard on you, and that you're enjoying yourself? Singapore would welcome you with open arms, we're currently facing a shortage of conveyancing lawyers due to the property boom! ;)

Conveyancing is a lot gentler than other departments: and it can be pretty fun, if tiring, when it comes to searches and all the documentation and paperwork! I interned in one in the UK, and it was really fun when they took out this absolutely ancient title deed which was wax-stamped and like a Harry Potter scroll, really, falling to pieces with age and tied with a red ribbon! ;)

Congratulations on the job at the firm! *beams* I hope it's a great place filled with great people, and that you're learning a lot and having fun! ♥

*grin!* I started work, and I was at my firm from late May to early July, and now I'm on my practical law course - our equivalent of the LPC/PCLL. The way our qualification process is structured is we work for one month, go for the Practical Law Course and take our bar exams for the next five months, then work for five more months and finally get called to the bar. ;)

I did! ;) Shanghai was great! Crazy and kinda polluted and really busy and the traffic was NUTS, but the architecture was amazing, and I am now a xiao long bao convert, and it was a really beautiful country. I liked thinking I was in the same country with you! (very technically. XDDD) I went on holiday with my family, for three days! ;)

Speaking of holidays, I read on Facebook in your comment to Linda that Ann's gone off to EGYPT for a holiday! *griiin* THAT LUCKY GIRL. ;) Would that we could do holidays like that! ;)

I totally agree with the "absolutely ancient title deed which was wax-stamped and like a Harry Potter scroll, really, falling to pieces with age and tied with a red ribbon!"

they have all these indentures and wax-seals that look very old and fragile I am scared that they are going to fall apart if you don't handle them with care! :-P

The corporate people all seem a bit stressed out.

There are 2 other trainees together with me, both of them studied in UK before like us. :)

I've been obsessed with the Tales of the Abyss game for a while (sadly, can't play it since my parents won't let me get a PS2) but I really want to read the manga so I have a question - how do I view the posts?
26th-Sep-2007 01:42 pm (UTC) - Tales of the Abyss Manga
Hey there! My Abyss manga posts are always open to the public: here is one of the main posts that links my other manga posts. You can follow my manga posts via my manga scans tag. I list other manga posts in my Abyss memories here. Certain posts may be friends-locked, so I'd advise you to join talesoftheabyss to view them.
