I don't know what possessed me to do so, but I just suscribed to MobTV for three whole months. I've never been a huge fan of Channel 8 dramas and it doesn't exactly bother me to have to miss a few episodes of shows that are deemed interesting, so I don't know why the sudden urge. Most likely, I suspect, because I desperately wanted the watch the 45th Anniversary gala show, which I missed a few weeks ago and can't seem to find on Youtube. LOL. $30, just for that reason. I must be going out of my mind.
And that's why I say that I definitely can't be trusted with a credit card. Even with almost-free rein on my sister's card, I've used up about $200 of credit space, let's not even mention how much worse it would get if I had my own. Anyways! About MobTV. The download manager is really awesome. I finished downloading the three hour gala show in less than an hour and it take just about 15 minutes to load a one- hour show. And since yesterday after I signed up, I've been busy searching the entire site for shows that I'd like to watch. The bad thing about the system is that you CAN'T download entire shows at one go. You actually have to manually load them one episode by one episode. Tedious, especially for long dramas like The Little Nyonya. And I seem to be having problems streaming the media straight off the site. But on the whole, everything else is pretty much easy to use and all. Tomorrow Dear and I will be heading to the DBS Arts Centre to watch The Office Party. Quite excited. I think that's the "suaku" feeling of doing something for the first time and looking forward to it. Saw Van when I went to collect our tickets today at TM, but didn't really chat since I was rushing off the AMK Hub. My schedule for next week sucks, because I've only got tomorrow off, but of the 6 days that I work, 3 of them are with Dear. And that means either of us will be the cashier. Goody goody. Heh heh. Confirm can go and watch Snow White already!!! Oh yea... I watched Bolt yesterday with Dear, Kat and Khin and the show was pretty nice. Touching, a little predictable, but very CUTE. Especially the start when they showed Bolt as a puppy. Oh my god I could melt!!! Hahas. Kbox for next week still not confirmed. No one's giving me confirmed replies!!! And Jinwen doesn't want to go. Double sians.
Oh well... I'm off to watch the shows that I've managed to download so far. Please feel to recommend any shows that you think are worth the time to download and watch. Mediacorp channels only!!!
