Black Panther is a Culture Fest

As at May 01, 2018, Black Panther has already been encamped in movie theaters for 75 days. 

Global sales stood at $1,334.6 billion and this makes the megahit the ninth-biggest global grosser in the world – beating Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($1.332.7 billion). 

I expect the Chadwick Boseman flick is mostly done breaking records and this is probably the end of the line for movie updates in my blog. 

One of the things I enjoyed about the movie was the prominence given to African cultural artefacts that made the comic-book adaptation a very rich experience. 

In this video, Racked caught up with Black Panther costume designer Ruth E Carter to learn about the African tribal influences inspiring the myriad costumes featured in the blockbuster:

On Thursday, I attended the Shine Toastmasters meeting – the club was just chartered on April 01 this year and members are mostly from the Sunway Group of Companies. 

The venue is in Menara Sunway located in Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya, Selangor. 

I was tasked to evaluate an Advanced speech. And just a couple of hours before the start of the meeting, I had also volunteered to be Toastmaster-of-the--Evening.
