Some Days Off, Maybe?

What are you looking forward to in December?

Well we have a busy schedule coming up in November. Not that from mid-September to now hasn’t been busy. But with a new business deal being signed up between our company and our biggest clients, it looks like some very busy weeks ago. I guess I am going to be really tied up till mid December atleast and there may be some long days & nights at work.

Hopefully that will also mean that deserving we will also get some time off. Now the last time I had a few days off was at the beginning of March of this year when I took 3 days off and combined with my weekend I had 5 days of relaxation, of which I spent 3 days in a nice and comfortable hotel room. I want to do that again and see if I can afford it. At the moment probably not so I will see what I can save up from my part time thing I do on the side.

If so then I will take some of that cash and book myself in another place again and relax and chill out for 3-4 days and not answer any calls and leave my worries behind. I would love that a lot. I hope I can get that done without breaking the bank.

Prompt from 30 Days Of November Writing Prompts at The SitsGirls

Arsenal 1 Wolves 1

Arsenal’s turbulent week ended with them surrendering another lead as Wolves fought back to claim a merited Premier League point at the Emirates. Wolves, who are now unbeaten in their past eight matches in the capital, dominated for long periods but fell behind as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left unmarked from Alexandre Lacazette’s pass to steer home his 50th goal for Arsenal. However, that was a rare blip for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side who repeatedly carved the hosts open. And they got their reward when Raul Jimenez headed Joao Moutinho’s hooked cross past Bernd Leno into the bottom right corner.

It ensured Wolves, who are up to 11th, stretched their unbeaten run to six games, while Arsenal remain in fifth. Arsenal have already surrendered leads against Watford and Crystal Palace this season, and this result did little to allay concerns over the team’s perceived fragility in defence. Former boss Arsene Wenger came in for criticism over this towards the end of his 22-year tenure at the club and there is a feeling that Emery has been unable to address those failings as he nears 18 months in charge. While they were in total control against Watford and Palace before capitulating, that was not the case against Wolves who took the game to the hosts from the off.

The visitors had already fashioned at least half a dozen good opportunities before Arsenal opened the scoring against the run of play. Aubameyang’s expert finish brought up his ninth goal in 13 games but he was largely forced to feed off scraps with Arsenal managing just 10 shots compared to the visitors’ 25. There was little of the fan unrest that led to Granit Xhaka being omitted from the starting line-up but equally there was a sense of inevitability about Jimenez’s equaliser. However, only Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola currently enjoys a higher win ratio in the Premier League than Emery.

At The Ava Lounge With Alza

So I went to The Ava Lounge again after a gap of 8 months or so. The Ava Lounge is the lounge bar at the 5 star Radisson Blu. I love this place as it is cool, has plush carpeting and it is quiet and has lots of privacy. The food is really good.

IMG20191102140357IMG20191102140354

This time I went on a sort of date with the young lady you see here in the pics. Alza is an ex-trainee of mine and an ex-colleague. Yes, she is gorgeous and she is pretty. She also has the most amazing dimples I have ever seen and everytime she flashes a smile at me and I get to see the dimples, I swoon. She left the company I work for back in February.

IMG20191102132156

We’ve reconnected in September and have been chatting on a regular basis and last week did a lot of video chatting as well. Last night as I was leaving the office we planned to meet up today. Two Mondays ago she thought I would be available to meet up but we had some flooding in the city and I wasn’t able to catch up with her. So since she was in town for a couple of days, we made a quick plan to meet up for some beer.

IMG20191102150124

I booked an Ola and went to pick her up near the place she was staying at. She came and got into the cab for the very short ride to Radisson. We started chatting and rode the elevator to the 11th floor and then took a table near the window and sat down. We got some Kingfisher Blue and I ordered an Afghani chicken and some French Fries. She started taking selfies.

IMG20191102132049IMG20191102132056

We talked and we took a few photos and we talked some more. She grabbed my phone and took a few selfies and we even did a couple of videos.

IMG20191102140335

I had a great time talking and laughing with her. We were silly and we joked around. I love being with her as she is a lot of fun and she is weird & strange but mostly because it felt good for this lonely ole bachelor to be with a beautiful young woman for an afternoon. As we left I kissed her hand and thanked her a lovely time.

IMG20191102140300

I dropped her off on my way to a supermarket and then I bought some groceries and came home to take a nap and enjoy a nice evening at home with my parents. I hope I see her again.

Halloween Here In Cochin

So, Halloween has come and gone. India doesn’t really celebrate Halloween. The only reason we do is because of MNCs and BPOs, the call centers that are doing outsourced work for US, Canadian & UK companies. Most people I know have only heard of Halloween and do not know anything about it other than people dress up in scary outfits (and some none scary outfits) and that candy is passed around for free.

Last night in my office, as they had declared a “face painting and costume” competition, there were people using face paint and colours and trying to look scary. However it looked more like a Joker convention at the office. There were mostly the Dark Knight version of Joker than anything else. One stupid Why So Serious meme and stickers and this generation in Kerala sucked it all up! There were a couple of Harely Quinns out there, both were really well done. There were a few guys in white face paint with black designs on top of the white designs, which I am supposed to think represents evil ala Valak from Conjuring 2.

These were the three main inspirations and some other folks were painted in similar styles just not very conclusive enough to let me know if it was Valak or Joker or a combination of both. Some managed, with the help of black robes and black upside down crosses painted on their foreheads, to look like members of a Black Metal band but that was about it.

We just don’t do Halloween here!

Liverpool 5 Arsenal 5 (5-4 On Penalties)

Liverpool’s dramatic penalty shootout victory over Arsenal sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup after 10 goals were scored in a thrilling contest at Anfield. Celebrations broke out in front of the Kop after Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher, 20, saved Dani Ceballos’ penalty to seal a 5-4 shootout win. Divock Origi’s 94th-minute scissor kick sent the game to penalties after Liverpool had twice come from behind to draw level. Arsenal’s Joe Willock thought he had given his side a memorable victory with a sensational long-range strike in the second half but there was more to come on an unforgettable night at Anfield.

The celebrations were wild from Liverpool’s players at full-time as teenager Curtis Jones coolly thumped the final penalty in off the post to make it five from five in front of the Kop. Arsenal were minutes away from victory after Willock’s stunning long-range effort had put them 5-4 up, before Origi pulled off what seemed the inevitable in stoppage time. Liverpool led just once during the match and that was after five minutes when Shkodran Mustafi slid in and diverted the ball into his own net. Midfielder Mesut Ozil, given just his third start of the season, then set-up Bukayo Saka, whose shot was rebounded in by Lucas Torreira to make it 1-1.

Teenager Gabriel Martinelli continued his impressive goalscoring form, pouncing on a loose ball at the near post before slotting in from Saka’s pass to make it 3-1 to Arsenal. But Liverpool cut their lead to one goal on the stroke of half-time through James Milner’s penalty after Harvey Elliott – who became the youngest Liverpool player to start at Anfield (16 years, 209 days) – went down in the box under minimal contact from Martinelli. It took just nine minutes for the goals to start flowing again in the second half, when Milner uncharacteristically gave the ball away in his own area and Ozil teed up Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fired in an excellent long-range effort for Liverpool and Origi’s smart turn and powerful finish made it 4-4 – all this before Willock and Origi’s late goals left the teams level at 5-5.

How To Find Yourself A New Hobby

A hobby is something that all of us need in life to help keep motivated and to find our passions. Life should be exciting and a lot of our boredom can come from not having enough to do in life. Here are some tips to find yourself a new hobby.

Think About What Makes You Escape

With hobbies, a lot of the time, it takes you away from what you’re doing or what you have to do but don’t want to particularly do it right now. Hobbies are a form of escapism and so when you’re trying to figure out what sort of hobby you want, it’s worth trying things to see if it helps you forget. Forget about maybe something personal going on in your life right now or to just take your mind away. From Side Bet Sport Fishing to do knitting or buying and selling on Ebay, there’s something for everyone and each one will be different for each person.

Take It Back To Your Inner Child

Your inner child is still in you and it’s that one that comes out when you rediscover something from your childhood. Perhaps something you ate as a child, a tv show that’s just popped up on your screen or receiving an advent calendar stuffed full of chocolate. There might be a few hobbies or something that you always wanted to be a hobby when you were younger. Perhaps it’s a fascination around wanting to ride a horse or trying to ski. Get in touch with that inner child and figure out what sounds like a fun thing to try out. As adults, we become fear of doing new things but it’s important that you don’t let that fear control you from living your life how you want it. Find that bravery that you had as a kid!

Listen To Your Body

Listening to your body is important and it’s one thing that we definitely learn as we grow up. We start to realize that certain things may make us happy and certain things will make us sad. When we feel happiness, it’s like a warm glow all over and it envelopes us. That’s what you want from a hobby and so when you’re trying to find one, search in favor of that emotion. You can try lots of hobbies out that other people will enjoy, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to enjoy it. Listen to your body and you’ll figure out what you like and what you don’t.

Figure Out What Needs To Change 

There may be a lot going on in your life and some of those things you maybe don’t like so much anymore. It could be time for a change and usually hobbies can allow that to happen. So figure out what you want to adjust in your life and find a hobby that will replace it.

Finding yourself a new hobby can be good for your life and your mind, so look for something you love doing.

The Weird And Wacky Driving Laws Around The World

The world is a crazy place, and when you get used to a certain way of life only to see a totally different one, it can be mind opening. Not every country around the world is equal, and often they have vastly different rules and values. This is why sometimes you cannot take food on a plane or transport American plastic products to the rest of the world. Every country has their own laws, values, and regulations to follow.

That’s why today we wanted to take a look at some strange laws, and in particular, driving. Whether you work for a company like CTI Logistics Interstate or you are a single road user, there are certain things you should know before you take the wheel abroad.

Asia

To make things easier, we are going to take a look at the laws by continents, and as far as weird laws go; Asia has to have some of the strangest of all.

Japan – In Japan, respect and courtesy are both things heavily valued, and as a result there is a specific law that is crucial to obey. In Japan you must not splash water or mud on a pedestrian, it is impolite and also is illegal.

China – In China, children must salute passing cars. Also, it is illegal for drivers in China to stop for pedestrians on the road, so good luck walking anywhere!

Thailand – It is illegal in Thailand to travel topless. You may think this is an obvious rule to follow, however the hot climate often tempts motorists and tuk tuk drivers to take off their top.

Philippines – In Manila, you are not allowed to drive on a Monday if your number plate ends in either 1 or 2. Why? Who knows.

Europe

Europe is a vast continent and you may know already that the UK is already different to everyone else as they drive on the left side of the road. However, there are some weird rules in Europe that will really make you wonder.

Russia – In Moscow, it is a fineable offense to have a dirty car. The reason for this is that the city itself is incredibly clean and they don’t want anyone to tarnish the view.

France – This French law is a great idea for safety, but also one that is a little odd. It is illegal to not have a breathalyser in your car if you are driving in France. This aims to cut down on drink driving as if you are pulled over you will be automatically breathalysed.

Denmark – If you live in a suburban spot you may be used to checking for cats or other animals sitting under your car before you set off, however in Denmark you must check for children. It is a law that before driving, you must check underneath your car in case any children are hiding under there. It’s a worrying thought how they came to the conclusion that this law was needed.

Cyprus – We all know it is illegal to drink and drive, but in Cyprus, this law is taken very literally and you must not drink even water or juice when driving.

Switzerland – Tough luck if you want to clean your car on a Sunday because in Switzerland it is illegal.

Germany – Germany is the manufacturing capital of the world so it is no surprise that Germans came up with this rule. In Germany, you must follow strict set of laws including keeping your fuel tank full, as well as not breaking down. It is illegal to breakdown on the autobahn or stop for any reason.

North America

The United States is a vast country, and you likely already know that the law can differ starkly from state to state. It is no surprise then that the bulk of this list will be made up of weird laws in different parts of the USA.

California – There are a lot of laws in California which are bizarre, and here are just a couple of them:

  •         It is illegal to jump from a car going 65 mph
  •         It is illegal to dry your car with used underwear
  •         It is illegal for women to drive while wearing a dressing gown
  •         It is illegal to shoot an animal from your car, unless it is a whale

After looking at some of these weird laws, it makes you wonder how they came to be created in the first place.

Alaska – In Alaska it is an offense to tie a dog to the roof of your car, and to be honest we are glad of this rule.

Florida – If you were hoping to get free parking for your pet elephant you are out of luck in Florida. If you tie an elephant to a parking meter in Florida, you must pay nys deferred compensation loans for parking.

Massachusetts – Say goodbye to primate road trips because it is illegal to have a Gorilla in the backseat of your car.

Nevada – It is against the law in Nevada to ride a Camel on the highway…. To be fair this makes sense.

Minnesota – No matter how cold your head might be, crossing the state lines with a duck on your head is illegal.

Kentucky  – it is illegal in Kentucky to allow your pet to molest a vehicle.

Montana – If you are driving a loans no credit check direct lenders sheep in your truck, you must not leave it unattended.

Alabama – Alabama has some strange laws, but these two are the weirdest. You are allowed to drive the wrong way down a one-way street as long as there is a lantern attached to the car. And you are not allowed to drive blindfolded.

Georgia – In Georgia it is an offense to spit out of a moving car, however if you are driving a truck it is acceptable.

Maine – No matter how much you love donuts, you are not permitted to park in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts.

Colorado – In Denver specifically, you are not allowed to drive a black car on a Sunday.

There are many weird laws out there but these are definitely the strangest driving laws we’ve ever seen!

5 Weird Laws In Sweden

It is illegal to paint your house without getting a license first

This (non-verified) law is supposed to guard against having houses that stick out . The rule of thumb is that you need to keep to similar colors (as was before) if the building is within city bounds. The purpose of this is to keep the look of the city together and not to go against local building tradition too much (without prior permission). But in the countryside you can paint your house any color, if your house is not a very old or otherwise considered extremely valuable for historical or cultural reasons.

It is illegal to post a picture of Swedish Krona

Currency is protected by copyright in Sweden. Riksbanken advice’s that the original authors of the works used on banknotes and coins may decide to sue if they feel their moral rights have been violated (which may mean the economic rights are not an issue for Swedish currency). So next time be careful in the way in which you use images of the Swedish Krona.

It is illegal to spontaneously dance

How can it be illegal to dance? I know what you’re thinking. This weird law forces pubs and bars to have a licence in order for people to dance in them.It’s quite outdated as it dates back to the 1970’s. ‘Dance permits’ were introduced as a way for Swedish police to prevent public disorder which led to riots. Luckily the law doesn’t apply to tourists in Sweden. It is not criminal to dance for customers, but it is of course funny that a restaurant or bar owners can be charged for ‘illegal dancing’ in the year 2017. We’re happy however, that the Riksdag is considering dropping this law.

Dance party anyone?

It is illegal to name your baby Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116

As I discovered while writing 10 funny FACTS about Sweden,according to the Swedish name law, Swedish first names “shall not be approved if they can cause offense or can be supposed to cause discomfort for the one using it, or names which for some obvious reason are not suitable as a first name.”

Here comes in Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (pronounced Albin) – of course. Born in 1991, his parents named him in protest of the naming law. Their protest was sadly unsuccessful and the parents were fined and told to give him another appropriate first name.

It is illegal to use your phone without hands-free while driving

The law initially introduced in 2013, allows for use of mobile phones but persons are not permitted to use them in a manner that could be deemed detrimental to your driving. Watch out as this could earn you an on the spot fine!

Crawl

Crawl is a 2019 American disaster horror film directed by Alexandre Aja and written by Michael and Shawn Rasmussen. It stars Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper as a daughter and father, who along with their dog are hunted by alligators after becoming trapped in their home during a Category 5 hurricane. The film was theatrically released in the United States on July 12, 2019, by Paramount Pictures with Sam Raimi producing through his Raimi Productions banner.

Florida University student & swimmer Haley Keller is informed by her older sister that Category 5 Hurricane Wendy is on a collision course with Florida and advises her to get out of the state. Neither daughters are able to contact their dad Dave so Haley decides to go and check on him. Haley drives around evacuation routes to check in on Dave. She first goes to his condo, where he has been living since he and her mother divorced. Haley finds the family dog Sugar at the condo but not Dave himself and is worried that he has returned to the family home in Coral Lake, which he supposedly sold years ago.

Haley drives through the flooded streets and leaves Sugar inside the house and goes into the crawl space under the house when she sees it left open. She finds her father unconscious and wounded. When she tries to drag him out, her exit is cut off by large and ravenous alligators that Dave believes got into the house via a storm drain open to the crawl space. The alligators are too large to fit around the pipes under the house, allowing Haley and Dave a safe area at the far end of the crawl space. However, the hurricane intensifies and the crawl space begins to flood, so Haley attempts to navigate around the alligators before she and her father drown. Haley’s phone is dropped in the process and damaged by one of the alligators stepping on it. She tries to contact a group of looters in a gas station opposite the house for help, but they get killed by alligators.

She is also helpless to stop the alligators from attacking and killing two police officers who investigate the house for survivors. Dave manages to kill an alligator by splitting its head open with a shovel, but gets trapped. Haley makes her way to the storm drain, where she discovers that the alligators have made their nest and laid eggs. Haley successfully kills the other alligator using a gun retrieved from the body of one of the police officers, shooting down the alligator’s throat when it nearly bites her hand off and makes it upstairs, crow-barring the living room floor open and saving Dave from drowning in the basement. Haley, Dave & Sugar get into the boat but the floodwaters break the nearby levees, flooding Coral Lake even more and crashing them back into the house, where they get separated. While Dave and Sugar make their way up the stairs, Haley navigates around the kitchen and uses a discarded police radio to broadcast a distress signal to authorities.

After retrieving a set of road flares and saving Sugar from being attacked, Dave loses an arm to one of the alligators, Haley attempts to flag down a rescue helicopter from an upstairs bedroom but is attacked by another alligator, which attempts to drown her in a death roll. While Dave and Sugar escape to the attic, Haley stabs the alligator in the eye with a flare and attempts to swim to the roof from the outside of the house, narrowly avoiding being mauled by a fourth alligator before it gets swept away. Haley lights a flare and flags down the rescue helicopter as Dave and Sugar watch.

Interesting enough to watch and keeps you entertained and thrilled, the movie is however very similar to most creature features. And I don’t mind people getting killed by the alligators as long as the dog survives. It is good for a Sunday afternoon watch. 7.5 outta 10.

How To Play Poker At Home


Poker is a family of card games, with the most popular type being Texas Hold’em. Poker has made a pretty bad name for itself as a game in which people can bet and lose large amounts of money and may think that the only way to play it is at a poker house, such as fortune poker, or at a casino but in fact you can have just as much fun playing poker at home with your friends or family where the stakes needn’t be high, and you may not bet real money at all. Betting and gambling shouldn’t stop poker from being a fun game, so here’s how to play it at home.

    1. Learn the hands
      The first thing you are going to want to do is to learn the 10 basic 5 card hands and their rankings, as no matter what type of poker you choose to play, these will remain the same. Start to familiarise yourself with these hands, you can do this by printing out a cheat sheet and spending some time studying it. The hand that everyone will want to be aiming for is the royal straight flush, this hand cannot be beaten but can only be tied with another royal straight flush from another suit.
    2. Place the starting bets
      When the game begins, bets are placed in one of two ways. In Texas Hold’em poker the person next to the dealer will usually place a small blind bet of around half the usual minimum bet. The player on the left of that person will then place a big blind bet that is at least the minimum bet amount. The minimum bet amount can be set before the game. Alternatively, players can ante-up the minimum bet which means that they each place a starting bet into the pool. The ante up method is used in most games of poker aside from Texas Hold’em.
    3. Deal the cards
      The dealer will then deal 2 cards to each player starting from the left and dealing clockwise. The dealer will burn one card each deal, meaning he puts it out of play.
    4. Bet
      After every deal players will have the option to bet. They can say ‘check’ to avoid betting, ‘call’ to match someone else’s bet, or ‘raise’ which means adding more money to the pool. If they choose to raise then the betting will go around again in the circle and the other players can then either call or fold. When playing poker at home still use chips but just don’t assign them real monetary value, at the end of the night, no one goes home any worse off.
    5. Check the first flop
      The flop begins as a set of 3 cards that the dealer will lay face-up on the table. Any player can use these cards to make their hand. You will then bet on this hand.
    6. Reveal the turn card and the river card
      The turn card is the 4th card added to the flop and the river card is the fifth, these are revealed once each round. You will bet on your hand when each is revealed.
    7. The final showdown
      Once all of the flop has been revealed the remaining players will each reveal their cards in turn in the final showdown. The highest value hand wins the entire pot.

Arsenal 2 Crystal Palace 2

Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka was involved in an angry confrontation with his own supporters as Crystal Palace came from two goals down to earn a point in an ill-tempered atmosphere at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners were two up inside nine minutes as Sokratis Papastathopoulos and David Luiz took advantage of poor defending at corners – but it was all downhill from there for Arsenal and manager Unai Emery. Palace pulled one back before half-time when Luka Milivojevic scored from the spot following a VAR intervention after referee Martin Atkinson had initially shown Wilfried Zaha a yellow card for diving in a tangle with Calum Chambers. And Palace were level seven minutes after the break when Jordan Ayew headed in James McArthur’s cross at the far post.

The game turned toxic just after the hour when Xhaka was substituted to roars of delight from Arsenal’s fans, the newly-appointed captain reacting angrily to jeers at his slow departure by waving and cupping his ear sarcastically to the home support, exchanging words before taking off his shirt and disappearing down the tunnel. Arsenal’s frustration and misery was complete when another VAR intervention infuriated Emirates Stadium and denied the Gunners victory after Sokratis scored from close-range late on. As the players returned to the centre circle, referee Atkinson was involved in more debate with Stockley Park, where an apparent foul by Chambers on Milivojevic was detected, causing widespread anger inside an arena that was already boiling over.

Xhaka was a contentious choice as new Arsenal captain – and his behaviour here did nothing to suggest it is a role that suits him. His own performances raise questions about his suitability but his petulant, goading reaction to his 61st-minute substitution by youngster Bukayo Saka only played into the hands of those who believe he does not have the character for the role. Of course, it will have hurt a proud professional to hear the mixture of delight and sarcasm that greeted his number coming up, but his response was provocative and met with loud condemnation from Arsenal’s fans. Arsenal had conceded a two-goal lead so there was a sense of urgency that was not reflected in his slow stroll towards the technical area, anger growing with every laboured stride.

He then waved his arms towards Arsenal’s fans before foolishly cupping his ear and going through the most cursory of gestures with Emery, also appearing to exchange words with supporters. Xhaka then took off his shirt and went straight down the tunnel. It summed up the discontent lurking close to the surface at Arsenal, with further evidence provided by the loud chants for exiled German star Mesut Ozil as they fought in vain for the winner. Arsenal are in fifth but a gap is now opening up – four points to Chelsea in fourth – and this was another display that exposed their fragility and soft centre as that early advantage was cast aside. This was another unsatisfactory 90 minutes for Emery and Arsenal.

Child’s Play (2019)

Child’s Play is a 2019 horror film directed by Lars Klevberg and written by Tyler Burton Smith, serving as a remake of the 1988 film of the same name and a reboot of the Child’s Play franchise. The film stars Gabriel Bateman, Aubrey Plaza, and Brian Tyree Henry, with Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky. The plot follows a family terrorized by a high-tech doll who becomes self-aware and subsequently murderous.

This reboot takes away the supernatural to borrow money element of the soul of a dying criminal taking over a doll byerforming a Haitian Vodou spell and instead uses technology gone bad. Kaslan Corporation has just launched Buddi, a revolutionary line of high-tech dolls designed to be life-long companions to their owners, learning from their surroundings and acting accordingly. Buddi dolls can also connect to and operate other Kaslan products, quickly becoming a success for children worldwide. At a Buddi assembly factory in Vietnam, an employee is fired by his supervisor for insufficient work. In retaliation, the employee manipulates the doll that he is assembling by disabling all of its safety protocols, before committing suicide. The doll is packed alongside others in preparation for international delivery.

The doll is taken by retail clerk Karen Barclay who blackmails her boss to give it as a present to her 13 year old son Andy who is hearing impaired. The doll is defective but once Andy activates the doll, it names itself Chucky and becomes attached to Andy. Over time, Chucky helps Andy befriend two other children in the building – Falyn and Pugg – but also begins to display violent tendencies. Chucky tries to strangle the pet cat after it scratches Andy, and one night, while Andy and his friends gleefully watch a horror film, Chucky starts mimicking the violence on the screen and approaches the trio with a kitchen knife before Andy disarms him. The next day the cat is killed but a tearful Andy hides the body. Karen locks the doll in a closet, but he escapes and terrorizes her boyfriend Shane, which leads Shane to confront Andy. After overhearing Andy’s pleas for Shane to disappear, after he is bullied by the man, Chucky follows Shane to his house where we find that he actually has a wife and kids.

While Shane is outside taking down Christmas lights, Chucky breaks his leg before activating a tiller which scalps and kills him. The following day, Chucky delivers Shane’s skinned face as a gift to a horrified Andy. While police detective Mike Norris begins an investigation, Andy, Falyn and Pugg disable Chucky and dispose of him in the garbage. Building voyeur and electrician Gabe finds the doll and takes him to the building’s basement to prepare him for online sale. Now fully repaired, Chucky tortures and murders Gabe with a table saw. Chucky lands in the possession of another kid in the building named Omar, and proceeds to kill Mike’s mother Doreen in a controlled car crash. Meanwhile, Andy fails to convince Karen that Chucky has become murderous, and she takes Andy along to her next shift at her shopping mall workplace in order to keep him nearby. Mike travels to the mall and apprehends him just as Chucky takes full control of the building causing chaos.

Mike is wounded amid the massacre, and Andy and his friends manage to reach the exit, only for Andy to be forced to return when Chucky reveals that he is holding Karen hostage with intent to kill her. Andy manages to free his mother while being attacked by Chucky, before overpowering and defeating the doll with help from Karen and Mike. While paramedics tend Karen, Mike and other survivors, Andy and the rest of his friends destroy Chucky’s lifeless body in a nearby alleyway. Kaslan Corporation CEO Henry Kaslan issues a statement regarding Chucky’s programming. As more Buddi dolls are shown being recalled and placed into storage, one starts malfunctioning inside its box.

While an interesting new twist, the movie llacks the charm of the original 1988 film. I think with Andy being played by a younger kid who actually plays with dolls and Chucky wanting to kill Andy and take over his body makes it more dangerous and creepy. I give this one a 6.5 outta 10 as Hamill does a fine voice acting job.

Family Lunch @ Mercy Estate

Today I took the family out for a nice lunch at Mercy Estate. It had been a long time, Dec 31st last year, when I had actually joined for a meal with dad, mom, sis & her kids outside of the apartment.

IMG20191027142936

With my new nephews coming home for a few days from Bangalore, it seemed like the perfect time. I spoke to my sister a couple of days ago and we actually wanted to have a dinner at the club on Saturday night but I had to work due to an emergency.

IMG20191027142939

We then thought we’d have a big lunch at the club but it was crowded due to a function happening there and it would be hard to find some peace. Instead we went to Mercy Estate by 1:30 pm for a late lunch.
