It's been a while since I had lounged at McCafe.
I've never had a pleasant experience there at all, though.
Today's visit didn't change my opinion any better...
Beside my usual order of Chocolate Muffin,
I tried the Mochaccino, a fusion of espresso coffee & chocolate.
There was no element of surprise at all, Mum's black coffee tastes better.
A meddlesome black pigeon kept interrupting me & my novel. (Ｔ3Ｔ)
It flew onto my table twice, its greedy eyes locked on my muffin, no doubt.
I kept shooing it away, but it just kept circling the ground.
All these time, its hostile eyes locked on me.
After the bird went bothering other customers, more trouble came.
Rain began to pour which nearly destroyed my novel! o(>_<)o
The entire 20 minutes I spent at the outdoor cafe was horrendous!

Ben Kingsley's acting is remarkable in the film as he convincingly plays a former high ranking Iranian Colonel dealing with a much lower style of living in the U.S.
Jennifer Connelly is able to evoke the audience's sympathy despite her character being remarkably dumb and inept.
The movie is compelling at first with an interesting and unique plot but the nightmarish ending made it difficult for me to find real enjoyment in the film.
And the real estate legal situations as well as the Colonel & his wife's sudden decision to take in and help the "angel bird" did not seem realistic.
I suppose there is a message to be learned from the movie in regards to what is really important in life but the main impression I took away from the film was the very tragic and rather graphic ending.
