Synopsis
Long-time couple friends meet up for a lunar eclipse dinner then plays a game - they all put their phones on the dinner table and shares to everyone what the incoming message is. The point of the game was that no one was keeping secrets. The ultimate result left them shaken, disturbed and damaged.

Movie
With all 7 characters at the dinner table, this could have been a play. The movie started off with everyone cheerful to be meeting everyone for what was to be a lovely dinner among friends. The movie didn't play favorites - all characters were given almost the same attention and time. It was in the clever twists and dialogue that made the movie alive. Affairs were exposed, sexual orientation was outed, sneakly plans were revealed, etc. The movie was funny, moving and heart-warming.

Movie Review: Perfect Strangers (2016)

Ending Thoughts
At the very onset, it was a can of worms or a Pandora's Box. The smart phone is a black book that contains many secrets not meant for public consumption, let alone friends whose sensitivities can range from callous to onion-skinned.

General Travel Tips
  1. arrive early - in case there is a snag (visa snag, documentation snag, transport ticket snag, etc.), you will have ample time to troubleshoot the problem if you arrive early (to the airport, to the bus terminal, etc.)
  2. put detailed itinerary on the Calendar apps of your smart-phone according to timelines - this is where you do all your thinking and planning. Once written down, you don't have to think anymore while you are on the journey...you just follow the steps. This frees your mind for something else that might happen while you are already en route
  3. avoiding scams - as a general rule, I ignore the touts or anyone I don't know who call out to me. The calling comes in many forms - "Hi! Where are you from?", "Excuse me! Excuse me!", "Where are you going?". I don't look them in the eye and I remain non-verbal with them. If you reply to them, you just gave them an 'in' to hound you. In order not to look rude, I smile and wave the 'not interested' hand to them, without looking at them.
  4. power bank - hand-carry your power bank. Do not check it in. You can be called in when you are already inside the plane to go all the way to the loading dock so you can personally remove the power bank...and chances are, you'll have to surrender it to them. And you might delay the plane departure!
