Book review – Defi and the future of finance – Must read!!!

I chanced upon this book at the local library, and it seems to be an easy read. It’s quite slim, with fewer than 200 pages, and from a quick browse, it does not seem very technical, with mainly words and few graphs or complex mathematical formula (if you have some ideas about blockchain and crypto,Continue reading “Book review – Defi and the future of finance – Must read!!!”

Factfulness – A beautiful book full of positivity

It was the first book I’ve read in the year 2022, and it’s totally worth my time. A really good start for my reading journey this year. The book was full of positivity, as the main focus of the author was to spread the message of a better world that we are living in. TheContinue reading “Factfulness – A beautiful book full of positivity”

Tom&Jerry – A movie that brings back nostalgia

For those of us in our 30s and 40s, seeing the trailer and advertisement of the new Tom&Jerry movie really brings back a sense of nostalgia. We grew up with the original Tom&Jerry cartoon series, and although I always rooted for Jerry, I also sometimes sympathised with the poor cat, especially since he was mostContinue reading “Tom&Jerry – A movie that brings back nostalgia”

The Five People You Met in Heaven (Part 2)

Finally I finished the book, and this is one of the books that I will be keeping in my collection. It’s full of useful lessons that I want to remember. The first lesson was about life and death, and strangers and the actions that we make every day, which I already mentioned in the lastContinue reading “The Five People You Met in Heaven (Part 2)”

Unf*ck Yourself – Book Summary and Review

First of all, let me get one thing straight. After reading this book, I find it to be of the same vibe as so many other self help books or websites that you can find almost everywhere nowadays. There are some good tips, so novel ideas, but mostly nothing new (or probably it’s just because I have read too many of those similar materials elsewhere). I learnt something in the book, and refreshed some points that I had gone through before, and I managed to create some connections. So, in a way, it’s not total waste of time for me, and it will surely benefit those who are new to this genre. If you need some motivations to make changes in your daily life, you can just dive in, and gain something for yourself. I am pretty sure you can get something useful, and your life will at least improve a little, or at least you will feel like so.

Man of Steel – Interesting at first, then a bore later

Yes, we started the movie quite excited. It was action right from the start, and the movie applied the newly found successful formula of Hollywood remake in which the story was told again from the beginning instead of smacking in between, so that viewers had the background knowledge and enough time to bond with theContinue reading “Man of Steel – Interesting at first, then a bore later”
