2006 Movies Ottawa

Die Hard Trilogy

as i mentioned earlier, last night dooh and i met at shekhar’s house in barrhaven. we watched Underworld:Evolution (mainly because of kate beckinsale in a black skin tight leather suit… and vampires.. everyone like vampires!.. and also because there was nothing else worth watching) at the new Barrhaven theatre (small theatre but close for all the people living in barhaven). the movie was a sequel to Underworld and i had forgotten most of the first movie so couldn’t really follow what was going on in this one. in any case, the vampire and werewolf fights were pretty fun to watch.

later we ordered pizza and went to the basement and started watching the Die Hard movies; Die Hard [1988], Die Hard 2 [1990], and Die Hard: With a vengeance [1995]. my personal favourite one is the second one. shekhar was really sleepy so we had to stop after watching the first two and decided to watch the third the next day… today. good times.

after finishing all three movies, we dropped dooh at home, and then i went to the bus station to take a Greyhound bus back home to mississauga. it was a fun weekend and hopefully i’ll get to repeat it again. there are so many excellent movies that neither shekhar nor dooh have seen. i have much work to do to get these two up to date.

btw, here is dooh’s writeup about the weekend.

2006 Ottawa

Swiss embassy

all day today i spent chatting up on yahoo! and msn. in the afternoon i went for some grocery shopping at the nearby loblaws and took some more pictures of the apartment. i really like the old style elevator floor display. watch it turn! it reminds me of Nero Wolfe.

the swiss embassy is behind The Strathcona apartments. i wanted to go there and tell them “your country is beautiful!” but they would probably just escort me off the premises. the mountains in switzerland are so beautiful. toronto and ottawa are so flat. hull has some sort of mountains that we can see from ottawa but this part of canada has no majestic mountains at all :( i miss switzerland…

later today dooh and i are going to shekhar’s house to watch a movie and do a Die Hard 1, 2, and 3 marathon. apparently shekhar hasn’t watched all of them.. *shock and horror*

2006 Korea

fire chicken

while sikander was having fun in ottawa with his ottawa number 1,2,3,4,5…., i went out with my friend sunny to have fire chicken at a restaurant. it is a very very spicy chicken dish. its name in korean is booldak but we call it fire chicken. the restaurant serves it with fish cakes so we can calm our tongue when eating the spicy chicken. it was delicious but oh my god, so very spicy. i had tears in my eyes and my face was all red. i don’t think i will be having it again anytime soon. this person had the same experience when eating fire chicken. here is some more information but it is all in korean: 1 and 2

also, on the way to the restaurant, we saw a sign for a “Modern Toilet” and we went inside to see what a modern toilet is like. it wasn’t so impressive at all. in fact, it was even a bit disappointing.
