Like mother, like son. Almost 3 decades after the wedding of Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana Spencer, the world once again witnessed another wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton [afterwards known as Queen Catherine XVI].
It all began in Egypt, when its president, Hosni Mubarak was impeached. Later, it spread [a form of past tense as well] to other countries such as neighbo[u]ring Syria, Tunisia, and Bahrain.
1. EARTHQUAKES, EARTHQUAKES, and EARTHQUAKES!!!!
Two major tremors were felt this year. Firstly in Christchurch, NZ. But, THE [‘duh’] worst earthquake the world has ever seen was in Japan at magnitude 8.9. It was then followed by tsunami and post-quake radiation scare.
On a sad note, 2011 will be deeply and fondly remembered for these people:
- Kim Jong-IL
- Amy Winehouse
- Steve Jobs
- Liz Taylor
- Gary Moore
Sequels, sequels, and more sequels rule the cinema this year. Harry Potter and Co have now called it quits after 10 years.
a. BEST MOVIES
Burlesque – Two divas, Cher alongside movie debutante Christina Aguilera
BEST LOCAL (MALAYSIAN) MOVIE
BEST ASIAN MOVIE
1911 – It’s obvious that the number 100 marks Jackie Chan’s volume of movies he acts. The movie was set a century.
BEST OVERALL MOVIE of 2011
Harry Potter and the Death of the Hallows, Pt.2
Best Song of the Year
Moves like Jagger (Maroon5 and Christina Aguilera)
Best TV Series
Pretty Little Liars
Best TV Series (Asia)
Kitchen Musical – Sort of Glee, but is set up in a fine dining restaurant. Produced by Malaysians. An eclectic mix of Asian casts too such as Stephen Rahman-Hughes from Malaysia, Karylle Tatlonghari and Christian Bautista from the Philippines to name a few.
Best Reality Show
CashCab Asia – The format is nearly akin to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? But the difference is, Oli Pettigrew (host of the Asian edition of the show) drives around in Singapore on modified Chevrolet Cruze demonstrator. He will ask passengers a few questions along the way. if the passenger doesn’t know the answer, he or she gets to call his/her friend on the phone or asks the people on the sidewalks. At the end of the destination, Oli will ask “Double or nothing”. 3 wrong answers, and it’s a free ride!
Best Local Car (Malaysia)
So, those were my picks of 2011. Have a great 2K12 ahead!
