Time really flies and without realising it, I am back from India for almost 2 years now and have worked on the channel since. Maybe what they say is right, i.e. when you do the things you love, you never have to work for another day and time passes without you realising it. Working on the movie channel is like a dream job. It allows me to make use of my financial and management skills, my knowledge of the industry and the people in it and most importantly, it allows me to work with movies which I love so much. Unfortunately, this has to end, for one reason or another, but I am very happy and felt very lucky to have such an opportunity to immerse myself in the channel.
When I started, it was really only me in the channel and had to do stuffs by myself, such as requesting for computers, interviewing people, understanding the job of a channel manager since I practically have zero TV experience, and little by little, things fall into place. From nothing, we built the channel into something that we can be proud of. It was such a wonderful experience.
I will be moving to another industry working as CFO for that company. So it is practically going back to finance and will utilise my financial skills, experience and training as a chartered accountant. Not a sexy industry this is but I feel that there is still going to be a lot of excitement and challenges in this new role. I am hoping for the best and movies will always be my love.
Last weekend, during our weekly poker games, a fellow asked me about some movies shown this summer and what I thought of them. He also planned to go watch a movie during the weekend and asked me for recommendations. Well, I basically told him how I ranked the movies and I would share it here. I will use a ratings of 1 to 10 to give an indication of how I rank them.
