Angry Birds Conquer Space

"Angry Birds Space" has become a blockbuster in the mobile game world over the weekend with its 10 million downloads in just three days, according to a tweet from the game's maker Finland's Rovio on Monday. It was released on Thursday on Apple iOS, Google Android, PC and Mac simultaneously.

It is the first full-fledged sequel to the original "Angry Birds," which is considered to be one of the most popular games on the entire planet at the moment. The first game, and all its assorted variants, has managed to accumulate 500 million downloads in three years.

Wow! I must be one of the “few” who is still not impressed with the game.

Last evening, I was in Petaling Jaya to attend the Taman Indrahana Toastmasters meeting where I delivered my tenth speech (I have completed the two Advanced manuals, i.e. Speaking to Inform and Public Relations). It took me 207 days to complete the ten speeches and I received my second ACB pin. I even prepared the setting for The Radio Talk Show speech which I did this evening and with the participation of two fellow members, Jean and Kimberly, who acted as radio show hosts for I managed to pull it off quite well and was voted the Best Speaker. My evaluator was LeAnn Tang and she too won The Best Evaluator award.

This meeting staggered awkwardly at the start but thankfully, it picked itself up when the project speeches commenced. I am giving this meeting a 6 out of a 10.
