"Megamind" is the most brilliant supervillain the world has ever known. And the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way. Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as "Metro Man," an invincible hero until the day Megamind actually kills him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, Megamind has no purpose. A supervillain without a superhero. He realizes that achieving his life's ambition is the worst thing that ever happened to him. Megamind decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new hero opponent called "Titan," who promises to be bigger, better and stronger than Metro Man ever was. Pretty quickly Titan starts to think it’s much more fun to be a villain than a good guy. Except Titan doesn't just want to rule the world, he wants to destroy it. Now, Megamind must decide: can he defeat his own diabolical creation? Can the world's smartest man make the smart decision for once? Can the evil genius become the unlikely hero of his own story?

Check point.

7pm @ Furama City Centre for Prom Night.

Oh well, for once, I felt that wearing spectacles is so much of an easy task.
Cos' putting on the contacts are ****** difficult.
I've spent the whole morning & afternoon doing it.
Oh well, that's one disadvantage for having small eyes.
Kekeke.... (Anyway, it's not put on yet, so I'm giving it up.)
I would be blind (again) in the ballroom.

It has been more than a week since my interview.
No one has informed me anything yet, oh my.
I'll check soon or my long-term break would be boring.

Ahhhh... stupid contacts.
