NETFLIX Roman Empire – Reign of Blood

Finally managed to sit down and finish Season 1 of Netflix ‘s Docu Series ( Documentary Series ) of the ROMAN EMPIRE – Reign Of Blood. And I was surprised that I managed to go thru all of that.

Revolving around two different timeline of the reign Commodus , it gave insights to the politics within the Empire of ROME and all the challenges they faced to retain power and how decisions made by them made ROME into the most powerful empire in the world.

Season 1 focuses on Commodus the son of Marcus Aurelius who ruled the empire and expanded the Roman Empire throughout most of what we know as Europe now.

It was a mix of both Documentaries and TV Series making it one of Netflix more interesting shows to watch.

So if you do have the time and is interested of a lil bit of history during your weekends, do check this out.

Prof Wang Yijiang ( Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB )

Up on stage was Professor Yijang from Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business – China who came and spoke about the economic situations in China and the challenges that’s currently being faced.

A bit about Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB ) , its one of the prestige universities in China where its Alluminis suchs as Jack Ma and about 3000 CEOs from various Chinese companies collectively holds revenues of about 13.7% of China’s GDP.

One of the highlights was also our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprint which was the focus of MPC ( Malaysia Productivity Council ) to introduce new methods in increasing the productivity in mostly the F&B and Retail sectors.

There are 4 sets of KPIs in these areas which NPC are trying to achieve by engaging with local businesses and encourage growth in these areas.

Overall it was a interesting talk and met a lot of new faces as this was my 1st event this year which is NON tech / crypto related. LoLz.

Meet the titans on netflix

So after many weeks of teasers and trailers , finally TITANS started showing on NETFLIX. If you’ve seen the animated cartoon Teen Titans or a fan of the DC Universe and its TV series, you may be interested in watching this.

Led by Batman’s sidekick ROBIN, this TV series is really not too bad. And I must say its as good as the trailers.

Of course with scenes when RAVEN goes all ghosty on you , keeps reminding you of that movie The Ring. But in a good way.

So if you are just flicking thru NETFLIX and wanna watch something new, do checkout TITANS . So far I’m a few episodes in and liking it. What do you think ?

A trip to the kampung

I’ve always enjoyed going back to the kampung ( village ) where life is stripped off all its unnecessities and you get back to basics. Come to think about it , if you are living out the last few good years how would you live it and where ?

My mum and a friend over decades of friendship and they never fail to get excited each time they meet with each other. You can feel the excitement in their voice and also in their eyes.

The place I visited was at Holy Family Residence in Papar , Kota Kinabalu. Its really a nice place with beauty all around it. On a clear day you are able to see Mount Kinabalu.

One great thing about being in the Kampung is that , your groceries grows on trees and its as fresh as it gets without any chemicals or preservatives ?

Heck even the chicken expects you to look for its eggs …

Everyone has their own superheroes … here are mine , as they have always been there in times of need and they always seems to understand you best.

Cheers and have a great day ahead !

A stroke of Netflix Brilliance

I’ve always wanted to experience how real interactive TV would be like and when Netflix announced their first move into interactive TV.. I was really looking forward in getting a taste of this new age of movies.

Bandersnatch

Netflix released Bandersnatch only a few days ago and last night I had time to watch it!

From almost just a few minutes into the movie you are then asked to decide the direction of this movie. From the most simple task of choosing whats for breakfast to crazy decisions of killing someone or chopping them up or hurrying them

Every decision will lead to a different outcome. So don’t be fooled thinking this movie is going to take 1hour 30mins… Its wayyyyy longer as you try your way to get to see multiple endings in different scenarios.

Pictured – Fionn Whitehead

My honest opinion… Netflix really took watching TV to the next level and I’m sure this is just a glimpse of what the future of TV would be like.

What a stroke of Brilliance from Netflix… I wonder whats next. Black Mirror was just the perfect series to start this interactive TV with.

Have you seen it? What do you thinks?
