Real Steel English Movie!!!

I love Robots and it should follow the instructions and commands I give and do all my household work.




Trailor of the Movie




Synopsis of the Movie


A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now, nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Cars 2!!!

Cars 2 is premiering on 14th August 2011 by Nuffnang. Win tickets.


Star race car Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and his best friend, the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy), jump start a new adventure to exotic lands stretching across the globe in “Cars 2.” 

The duo are joined by a hometown pit crew from Radiator Springs when they head overseas for the first-ever World Grand Prix, a race to determine the world’s fastest car.  But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and bombshells when Mater is mistakenly ensnared in an intriguing escapade of his own: international espionage.

Pregnancy Expenses in Singapore

Mostly Indians deliver 1st baby in India and 2nd baby in Singapore due to cost of delivery expenses. Some might have insurance, medisave, etc which can be used for delivery expenses.


Here are the useful links.


Normal Delivery Bill size - Checkout approximate expenses here

C-Sec Delivery Bill size - Checkout approximate expenses here

My experience is if you have facility to deliver in India it is better to deliver unless you are looking for citizenship.

The hospital facilities are good but definitely its very expensive than India. Also it is difficult for parents here. They also prefer India.

More info to come on this like Doctors, Hospitals.
