2 days of medical leave.. Yesterday & today! Super long weekend for me! :) Awesome opportunity to catch up on watching movies on DVD! :)

Yup! I went to visit my company doctor yesterday & he gave me 2 days of m.c. for yesterday & today! :)

My stomach was feeling unwell on Wednesday evening & I had a slight fever & running nose on Wednesday night..

Yesterday my body was aching all over, thus I went to visit my company doctor yesterday afternoon..

He gave me mc for 2 days, told me that I have the symptoms of gastric flu & ask me to have a good rest.. :)

Thus I had the opportunity to have a good rest indeed.. ;p

Went for a manicure & pedicure nearby.. :P

Dark red nail polish with glittery top coat.. for my fingernails & toenails.. :)

Also went for a shoulder & back body massage at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2.. :P

Damn shiok! :)

Also took the opportunity to watch several movies on DVD this week! :)

Watched IP MAN 2 on DVD..

Woo Hoo! The movie was super duper smashingly awesome! :)

Love it to bits! :)

Also watched Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island on DVD..

Shutter Island is a 2010 American psychological thriller film directed by Martin Scorsese. The film is based on Dennis Lehane's 2003 novel of the same name.

I agree with the movie critics.. This movie is indeed a stunning masterpiece! :)

In my opinion, it's a psychologically-challenging movie to watch..

This is definitely not a typical film..

A completely unexpected film..

It had all the components of a great film, and then some. The acting is spot on from every character; none of it seems forged or out of place. The script is fantastic..

It has one of the most intriguing plots I have seen in a while..

To those, who have not seen this film, be ready for a compelling, gripping, thought-provoking experience, so much so that you will have to see it again for further clarity!

It is a movie that you definitely have to watch at least twice!

Cos' after the twist at the very end, one realizes that one has to go back to the beginning of the movie & watch it all over again for all the clues, slight giveaways etc.

Leonardo Dicaprio is, as usual, an awesome actor..

DiCaprio just gets better with each film, especially the ones he makes with Scorsese. As they did in The Aviator and The Departed, Scorsese and DiCaprio have created another protagonist perpetually on the verge of losing his grip as they intensify the pressure on his psyche until the stress finally causes a climatic rupture.

There are layers to DiCaprio's performance that should be more evident upon subsequent viewings, but he is, along with Christian Bale, one of the few young actors who can bring depth, complexity and subtlety to obsessed, often unhinged characters.

Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese has created a divinely dark and devious brain tease of a movie once again..

Martin Scorsese is indeed one of the most brilliant directors of all time! :)

Gonna watch Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer on DVD today! :)

Heard it's Polanski's best in years! :)
