  1. Yep. Plus fantasy/scifi adaptations, more anime on our netflix catalogue, even shows airing weekly on Netflix and Muse Asia on youtube - to legally watch. Plus now we also have Crunchyroll and Shonen Jump too. What a time to be alive. Now I just need giant bookstores (like B&N in the states or Waterstones in the UK) - filled to the brim with scifi/fantasy books and affordable manga volumes.
  2. Anyone watch Don't Worry Darling at the movies yet?
  3. 11/11 Japanese release for Suzume no Tojimari - the new Makoto Shinkai film. After Weathering with you - and recently Mugen Train/JJK 0 - I'm very confident we'll get to see this at the theatres. Radwimps with the banger music as always.
  4. if this video serves as a trailer for their relationship in the movie, we're in for a wild f**king ride and I'm all in
  5. Waiting for the final episode of Classroom of the Elite to drop. Good second season, but it def has pacing issues - but the story itself has a good hook. I want to jump ahead and blaze through - but its a light novel series not manga and its pretty chunky. I already have so much reading haha
  6. The TV will be delivered today. I got an email with a link to schedule installation, and the earliest date is 3rd October Don't want to wait around for a whole week with a giant box in the house, can I open it up and just get it going myself? I usually let the technician do it, just in case there is any issue with the product.....
  7. flipkart dogshit what else do you expect from people who have a blue and yellow colour scheme
  8. 23rd (tomorrow) is some kind of Cinema Day - all tickets are 75 bucks. At least here in Delhi - excluding IMAX and Gold and stuff. Already watched Where The Crawdads Sing last weekend - excellent film. Highly recommend watching. An overarching thematic narrative about seclusion, companionship, societal injustice, family, and more - with compelling characters and excellent acting from Daisy Edgar Jones. Taking advantage of the pricing, booked the movie again - but taking the folks along this time.
  9. no book spoilers, and no Game of Thrones spoilers either right? since that has its own thread
  10. waiting for someone to do it lets gooo
  11. Yeah thats great, that storage option was introduced recently. I doubt you'll need it unless read like a madman, but no harm being a little future proof.
  12. I did it myself. 3 iPhone 12s - for all myself, mom and dad. This is my greatest achievement in life
  13. Also, the new Kindle Paperwhite is on sale. I don't need one since I have an Oasis, but at 10K (incl. of card discount) - this is a steal. Cannot recommend this enough, my kindle is easily the best purchase I've made in my life. This new one has all the bells and whistles. https://www.amazon.in/All-new-Kindle-Paperwhite-GB-adjustable/dp/B08N3RQZ51/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3MH4EANV81UGL&keywords=kindle&qid=1663787842&smid=A1TJ5W2Q6QYFKA&sprefix=kind%2Caps%2C278&sr=8-2
  14. I'm tempted by the Apple Watch SE, and the base model iPad. I would pull the trigger, but I don't actually need either of these. Needed to get the TV for the spare bedroom, I did that I should probably log off now
  15. Man I've already bought the TV and now I'm just admiring the deals. This is a bad idea
  16. Yeah I just made a purchase, normal SBI card though. I thought the discount is capped at 1500 (for non-EMI), but my discount at checkout was 2500, and there's a cashback for 300 bucks that I'll get as Amazon balance apparently. Not complaining one bit.
  17. Bought this 43" 4K TV from Mi, for 19K/- I know its Mi, but sh*t is still ridiculous https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B09RFC46VP?ref=ppx_pt2_dt_b_prod_image&th=1
  18. This Niyo thing sounds neat. If there aren't any charges, might as well get one. May be more travels up ahead. The only issue is that I don't gain points on my spending right? Well thats alright I don't plan to spend a lot of money anyway - hotels and flights being pre-booked using credit card and thats the majority cost anyway. Thanks @KunjanPSD
  19. Okay. Interested in picking up a Macbook, but even more an Apple Watch if its cheaper. Will try and score some good items. Thanks again.
  20. There is a good chance of a Bali trip with my best friends - hoping to go right after New Years. Flights are kind of expensive, 35K round trip - and that too with the cheapest carrier Vietjet. I checked some videos on youtube, seemed to be fine but would've liked to spend more money on the island itself. There's gonna be 5/6 of us so we're probably looking to get a villa on airbnb, in Kuta/Seminyak. Party a lot. We're not super interested in the rice field and Ubud, just looking to enjoy beaches and some cliffside views. Nusa Penida is high on the list ofc, will do that at the end. Will get the booze from the duty free, thank you for that.
  21. Have HDFC's Regalia CC and the Infinia Debit I think, Axis's Vistara Signature, some other HDFC cards, SBI and stuff. Don't have Amex card. So for this Niyo Global thing - the only cost essentially is to get the card itself? Then I just load it up, and can tap it around without any charges? Will pre-pay for hotel with breakfast, its for the other meals that I'd be making payments so how much do you think I should be getting? Isn't there a limit on how much foreign currency you can carry or something? Right on. There is cheap electronics to be bought? Like what? And noted. Will avoid withdrawing from ATMs. Carry cash and get it converted, or swipe using cards everywhere. I'm not sure if all our cards support international payments, but they're HDFC and Axis cards - so I'm pretty sure its an option I can just toggle on to enable the same.
  22. Booked tickets for Singapore. Thank you for all the advice. I booked for 6 nights - and full days on either end. Will use the return day to explore Changi - flight is super late at night Can someone explain what the currency exchange, forex cards, and all that jazz works and what I should be doing? 1. Using our cards while we're there, like normally swiping at restaurants etc? 2. Withdrawing in SGD from ATMs when we're there? 3. Carrying cash and exchanging it when we get to Singapore? Or do we just carry minimal amount and rely on card? 4. Additional forex cards or something?
  23. What a great episode of House of the Dragon. Ramin Djwadi killing it with the music, and Daemon out here smiling end-to-end really has me. We need a separate House of the Dragon thread, for the memes.
