I almost forget that I own an iPad. Because ever since the speaker stopped working all of a sudden (the voice is very very feeble) , I haven’t been using it for my Skype calls. And since Kindle replaced my iPad as my reading device (I did use my iPad for almost 3/4 years as my reading device) I hardly find any use for it. But the only ones who have been using it are my nieces and nephew whenever they visit me or I visit them. Recently when I took it to a service center to see if they can fix the speaker, which apparently they cannot and suggested me to do exchange it for a latest version…..No, Thanks!, I realized that most of the apps that are there in the iPad are all games and none of which I play. I am not into games. I don’t have any game on my phone. I did install some during our Bali and Cambodia trip but those were mostly puzzles and were used only in groups. When I took stock of the games on the iPad I was surprised to the see the number of games related to Cars. Yes, those belong to my nephew.
I don’t know what I expected from the kid who has this collection at his home.
Can you count the number of cars in this photograph? And this is just a small set of the ones he owns. My sister didn’t find a big enough table to display the whole set. 🙄
I can’t wait for him to come visit me next weekend and he has already told me that he wanted a Thomas and Friends set and like a good aunt I have got it ready for him 😉
I am in for a surprise every time I visit my brother. My first niece always has some or the other movie that she wants to see and if she knows that I am visiting, she would wait for me to take her to that movie. Last time it was a stupid Tamil horror movie (the one genre I usually avoid watching) which I avoided, thanks to my brother who watched with her. But this time, it is ‘The Jungle Book‘. I remember watching that series when I was a kid. Especially the song ‘jungle jungle baat chali hai‘ (in Hindi) which was a huge hit. Now the same song is used in the recent movie too, which is good. But I am going to be watching the Tamil dubbed version of the movie and I am not a big fan of dubbed movies. I always get a little unsettled with the lip un-sync (is that even a word?). But they (nieces and nephew) wouldn’t understand it in any other language other than in their mother tongue. So Tamil dubbed version it is, as long as they enjoy the movie and are happy watching it. I might update the post later after watching the Matinee show with them 🙂
Update after the movie :
I enjoyed it, in spite of it being in Tamil. Nieces were scared because of it being 3D. Nephew enjoyed it. Overall it is a very good movie. Worth watching it for the pleasure of watching a very good animation.
