The Leap Year Day

Heh today is the unique day that occurs once every 4 years (mostly). The origins of leap year could be found in wiki. And nope, it's not as simple as once every 4 years because some years like 2100 or 1900 are not leap years despite the year being divisible by 4. The wiki article got more details.

Watched the show 'The Leap Years' by Raintree Pictures. Not a bad show, but not that great either. One of those shows which you wouldn't mind watching on special days (another example is the CJ7 for watching during CNY). Hmm the producers could have done more enhancement...e.g. the guy lying on the hospital bed certainly bears no similarity to 'Jeremy'. What is interesting is the different Singapore sceneries in the movie, and I didn't know about "the n Irish leap year tradition that no man will refuse any request of a lady and invites him out for a date".

For me, my Leap Year day is not that exciting compared to what happened in the movie... it was spent mostly in bed to catch up on sleep :p
