someone forwarded this stuff to my email. Usually I ignored these kind of forwarded stuff but this one hooked me till the end. Let's crack your brain!!


Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important that we keep mentally alert. The saying; "If you don't use it, you will lose it" also applies to the brain. So below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence. So, take the following test presented here and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it." The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you have made your own ... OK, relax, clear your mind and ... begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

The answer is "bread." If you said "toast," then give up now and go do something else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, "bread," go to Question 2.

2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed and may even overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate such as Children's World." If you said, "water" then proceed to question 3.

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a greenhouse made from?

Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks," what the devil are you still doing here reading these questions????? If you said "glass," then go on to Question 4.

4. Twenty years ago, a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the engine fails before he has time and the plane crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors, East Germany or West Germany or in "no-man's land"?

Answer: You don't, of course, bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash.
Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you said, "Don't bury the survivors" then proceed to the next question.

5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute, then how many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?

Answer: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything other than "one degree," you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you
are obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and exit the room. Everyone else proceed to the final question.

6. Without using a calculator-You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get on the bus. In Reading, six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swindon, two people get off and four get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get in. In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on. In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. What was the name of the bus driver?

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember? It was YOU,you dummy. :-)

Photography Assignment:
Photographers in Action

I slept quite early last night. Not much in the mood for staying up late. I could hear my brother and my sister giggling over Mrs Doubtfire which was on tv at midnight. Then I heard my mom chased them to bed. But I know my dad quietly walked out from the bedroom to watched Euro 2004. Usually I like to accompany him to watch football but not in the mood.

Today, a lovely and bright day. Dad woke me up to remind me to type his letters. I switched on the laptop and type those stuff. Quickly had bathed and dressed up. I have no plan where to go but I know I must go somewhere. I decided to go to KLCC. Kinokuniya is the second place I hanged out after depositing some cash at BCB. My earlier plan was to purchase another Dan Brown's book called Digital Fortress but then I changed my mind when I saw a nice pink book called Confessions of a Shopaholic. Not that I am a shopaholic (Most of the time, I shopped for books and gadgets) but I remembered my officemate told me that this book is great. After browsing through the pages, I decided to buy it. It's lighter than Dan Brown's full-of-fact books. I need a light reading material. Paid with the plastic card (the bank mistakenly blocked my card thinking that I over-used it) and walked to the upper floor of Kinokuniya. I always thought that the upper floors are packed with Japanese books only when I realized that there are plenty of art and design books. in all type of language. I walked to the cafe for an ice mocha before engaged myself in an hour of telephone conversation. I felt relief after the lengthy talk. I would say, problem solved! I can see silver line among the dark cloud :)

Later, my tummy gave me a signal. Uh no..I forgot to take my breakfast and it's already lunch. I hate to eat alone in KLCC and decided to headed somewhere else. I walked out near the KLCC lake. The weather was fantastic and lots of people were taking the opportunities to potrait themselves with the famous tower. At first, I decided to do the same thing but when thinking that I already have plenty of KLCC photos in my collection, I changed my plan. Instead, I capture the photographers at the area. I found it quite fun and amusing. The best thing is, those people will not realized me taking their photos because they were busy with their own camera. Here's my collections which I called: Photographers In Action.

A Pro Photographer

Smile now.

Say cheese!!

As if there's a photograph class going on here.

That's a star-like pose

This is a one-million dollar photo. Very rare.

Bodyguards eh?

This is a bit too much but who cares? As long as he gets the best shot.

After the half an hour activity, I drove to Great Eastern Mall for delicious spaghetti at Delifrance. By the way, check out my Online Gallery for complete collection.

A Tour in the set of Harry Potter???

What a brilliant thing. I read about it in today's The Star bout the trip to all places which are used as shooting set in the Harry Potter movies. Just paid the amount of 414 Galleons, 10 Sickles and 6 Knuts for adults and 248 Galleons, 12 Sickles and 15 Knuts for children, which in ringgit translates to RM7,596 for adults and RM4,556 for children, and you will get the chance to roam around the Hogwarts castle, rides on the Hogwarts Express, wearing the robes, attend the class of Divination, learn how to read palm, tea leaves and the best part, having dinner in the great hall! whoooaa.....that is so cool or what?? Check out the news, these two lucky girls were enjoying themselves!!!Harry Potter's tours and also check out the website that conducted the tour:HP Fan Trips

Anyway, how's ur days, people? I had some good and some bad days. I'm kind of under depressed now because something bad strikes me. I mean, something that I make it as part of my life has been taken away. Actually, it's not something but someone. A good friend who had been with me during good and bad. I am still blur with what had happened but somehow she had been forbidden to have contact with me. I wil have the whole Sunday to think bout it. Now that what I got for being nice to people, eh? Stupid world!

On the other hand, I am enjoying myself with my PDA. It's great to be able to download latest news and be able to read it using the pda. Still have lots more to learn and explore. PDA stuff has evolved quite a lot since the last time I owned the old one.

I've just finished reading Angel and Demon. Fantastic book, I would say. Dan Brown is a genius. Combines art, science and religions. A good book to accompany me when having the nice brewed coffee at Destina. Nice place to hang out for a quiet reading (depends on time). But I hate the part when they are using Muslim guy to perform their killing task. If you have read The Da Vinci Code, this book is a must. Too bad there's no more books written by Dan Brown with Robert Langdon as the hero in it. I love that guy, most of the time I love his brain. One piece of genius. I've also learn about how the Vatican elected a new Pope through the conclave ceremony and plenty of history facts bout Christianity. No harm reading it for the sake of knowledge. But I find it quite amused when Kohler was blamed by the priest for not having enough faith (he was paralyzed because of high fever after his parents refused doctor's help due to high faith in God's healing power). But some says that Dan Brown was only creating the scene and most of it is not true. I have no idea bout that but I still enjoyed reading it.

Click here to read the excerpt of the book.

Interesting websites related to Dan Brown and his writings:

Fast Fact from Angels and Demons:

The world's largest particle physics laboratory is called CERN is located in Switzerland. It's a place where great scientist work together to discover new scientific stuff. It is also the place where the World Wide Web was born created by Tim-Berners Lee which is a scientisst of CERN. WWW in CERN

The antimatter that Vittoria and her father were working on in the story is actually something that is now in the CERN lab. It's a kind of energy which is greater than nuclear..

Galileo's middle finger is still preserved till this day. It was cut because he was against the church (church doesn't accept science as part of life).

I've just watched the movie which makes me laugh and cry; 50 First Dates starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. But I must say, I laughed out loud at Henry's friend (the one with the stone eye). I downloaded this movie which is in DVD format from Suprnova. Currently I am downloading Starsky and Hutch. Now I know why some people have bigger hard disk sizes and I believe I will need one too... :)

Thr truth behind the song, Hotel California.

I've always fond to Hotel California's song by Eagle because of the harmony of the music and the guitar tuning in the song. I always dream that I can play a guitar and played that song. The guitar 'goreng' is just fascinating to me. I've heard some stories bout the meaning of the song. Most of the time people claimed that the song is about a hotel in California which is a place for Satan worshipper and it was burned down to ground. Some even says it's about a mental hospital. So, I searched through Google and found this interesting website that explained about the actual meaning of the song....

Hotel California is an allegory about hedonism and greed in Southern California in the 1970s. At the time of its release, the Eagles were riding high in the music world, experiencing material success on a frightening level. Though they thoroughly enjoyed the money, drugs, and women fame threw their way, they were disquieted by it all and sought to pour that sense of unease into their music and to warn others about the dark underside of such adulation.

In a 1995 interview, Don Henley said the song "sort of captured the zeitgeist of the time, which was a time of great excess in this country and in the music business in particular." In another interview that same year, he referred to it as being about a "loss of innocence."

The album has as its underlying theme the corruption of impressionable rock stars by the decadent Los Angeles music industry. The celebrated title track presents California as a gilded prison the artist freely enters only to discover that he cannot later escape.

The real Hotel California is not a place; it is a metaphor for the west coast music industry and its effect on the talented but unworldy musicians who find themselves ensnared in its glittering web.

According to, hedonism means Pursuit of or devotion to pleasure, especially to the pleasures of the senses. Philosophy. The ethical doctrine holding that only what is pleasant or has pleasant consequences is intrinsically good. Psychology. The doctrine holding that behavior is motivated by the desire for pleasure and the avoidance of pain.

While zeitgeist means the taste, outlook, and spirit characteristic of a period or generation.

Here's the lyric of the Hotel California:

On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy, and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
This could be Heaven or this could be Hell
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely place (background)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the
Any time of year
Any time of year (background)
You can find it here
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She's got the Mercedes bends
She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget
So I called up the Captain
Please bring me my wine
He said
We haven't had that spirit here since 1969
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

Welcome to the
Such a lovely Place
Such a lovely Place (background)
Such a lovely face
They're livin' it up at the
What a nice surprise
What a nice surprise (background)
Bring your alibies

Mirrors on the ceiling
Pink champagne on ice
And she said
We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device
And in the master's chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast
Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
Relax said the nightman
We are programed to recieve
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave

Say hi to my new IPAQ H4150!

As I have mentioned before in the previous entry, I am in the midst of finding a replacement PDA which I had lost early this year. After making some homeworks and surfing through website and also visiting shops at IT Centre in Sg Wang, I've decided that the time has come to get me a new PDA. I've been badly forgotting appointments, assignments, class schedule and etc etc etc...bad memory. I should have taken Gingko Biloba since I was born. Recently I read an article about the Alzheimer syndrom and the symptoms, I get kind of chilled. Sounds like me having the early syntoms and don;t you dare to say that Alzheimer only attacks older people. The youngest so far has been attacked by this syndrom is a 40 years old woman!

I must start exercise regularly, eat balance diet and do healthy stuff. But I am glad to know that my kind of memory problem is not in the early stage of the syndrom but heck, preventing is a hell lot better than cure.

Anyway, I went to Low Yatt and make some surveys. I was eyeing on other models, thought that wanna get away from IPAQ but the other manufacturer's models aren't that convincing compare to HP. So, after a lengthy of discussing and calculating at the Digital Gadget, Low Yat, I finally choose the IPAQ H4150 which is bundled with extra battery, free softwares and the starter pack which includes the pouch and car charger. It has wifi and bluetooth build in it too. Total price, RM 1708. The actual bargain was RM 1688 but I forked in another 20 bucks for the clear screen protector. Handed them the plastic card, receive the call from the bank asking if I did used the card (good bank) and then walked happily home before realize and starts worrying about the debts to the bank. That's the kind of life when you are not born with the golden spoon in your mouth.

Yesterday, despite the stomach ache and food poisoning, I still managed to carry myself to attend a CBNer's wedding. Such a grand and exclusive wedding ceremony. Sharmila and Nizar. Sharmila is the daughter of the famous Iron Lady while Nizar is the eldest son of the current Deputy Prime Minister. We were there a bit late when all the guest of honours were already arrived. We were seated near the band stage where we could watch the video about the bride and the bridegroom. The food was nice and the best part is to get the chance to meet old friends whom I haven't seen for years (I was in CBN for 3 years only) and we chat and gossiping.

I am currently reading the book written by Dan Brown (he's the one who writes The Da Vinci Code) and I think I started to enjoyed his writings. After all this while I've been reading fictions and techie books and having a book on historical and art stuff is very interesting. Now I have to add visiting Europe into my wish list! There are also plenty of facts that I don't know before reading this book. For example, the smallest country in the world is the Vatican City which is only 0.2 square miles. The Vatican City also has its own broadcasting station called Vatican Radio which broadcast its program around the globe spreading its religious messages.

I tried to search for Islam Broadcast and found this website called Islamic Broadcasting Network. Look at how religions has evolved its way of spreading the knowledge from just books and ordinary kuliah to online broadcasting which can reached millions of listeners in a matter of seconds. Amazing!!!

Can't afford to live without it!

It's been almost 6 months since I lost my beloved PDA. It was the best bargain I had ever encountered and I still feel guilty for loosing it. Now, I believe it's time to get a new one. I've been forgetting my class schedule, stuff to do and missplaced lots of things. I have no choice but to go out and hunt for it.

I am still looking for a Pocket PC because of my past experience with Windows CE. I don't think I want to try Palm even though it has plenty of freeware on the net because I've been using WinCE for some time and feel comfortable using it. Besides, it works perfectly when connected to my laptop. I was in Sg Wang this evening having dinner at Teppanyaki restaurant before heading towards IT Centre. Too bad there is not much choices on PDA. I should have gone to Low Yatt instead. I hope this monday I will be able to dropped by. Been checking at several websites and reading several reviews. Can't believe how things have changed. The models are built with better processor at very affordable price.

There are a few manufacturer of Pocket PC which runs on Windows CE Operating system such as Acer, Asus, Fujitsu, HP and etc......

Acer N10 = RM 1188

Acer N20 = RM 1488

Asus MyPal A600 = RM 999

These are some models that attracts my interest besides the usual HP IPAQ (my old one was an IPAQ).

The price above are taken from The Handheld Shop website

Tomorrow I will be in Sunway Lagoon for the whole day. I'll ve working at the Futurekids booth in conjuction with the Masyarakat Penyayang program. There are 200 booths during this 3 days program. I bet I will be exhausted then. Must bring plenty of energy drink. Oh wow...there is also an IT Centre in Sunway Pyramid. Maybe I could just sneaked out for a while to check the PDA price.

Till then...chow.

Putrajaya at night

Yesterday was a boring day. Right after dinner at Adam Seafood in Keramat, my friend and I drove to Putrajaya. It was an unplanned trip. I just have no where to go but I don't want to go home yet. So we just chatted and drive at 70km/h until I've decided to try Putrajaya at night.

The first time I went to Putrajaya, it was a long and hectic journey. Dunno where did I go wrong, I ended up driving through Dengkil and some kampung before arriving Putrajaya. The second time I tried Sungai besi highway and arrived there without hassle. Last night I tried through Kesas. I dunno how did we ended up in Puchong coz I thought I saw the Puchong Mall and then Bandar Puteri or something before finally the highway to Putrajaya.

It was magnificent, grand place at night. Almost lights everywhere (TNB surely making money at this place) but the residents are no where to be found. So quite and hardly see any shop or mamak stall for a nice teh tarik. Then we stopped at the roadside to capture the picture of Bukit Melawati's caste which I have no idea belongs to whom (most probably the current Agong lives there). Then we went to Dataran and captured the picture of the mosque, the Prime Minister's office and the beautiful bridge that can be seen from far. I was told that this bridge has atrracted great controversy due to its stainless steel build. A stainless steel spoon already cost us a lot and imagine the amount of fortune spent on this bridge. Malaysia Boleh!!

On the way home, again...dunno how I did it..ended up through Kajang link. The toll house was deserted, a sign of new highway. It should be up in no time. I arrived home at 11.30pm, just nice for a quick bath and good sleep.....

Have you visited National Science Centre in Bukit Kiara? If you haven't, please do so before the end of June. It is now hosting the Nobel Prize winner exhibition which shows the list of Nobel prize winner, their achievements, the history behind the award and etc. Really great exhibition, pack with information. The most important, Malaysia has been chosen to host the exhibition which only goes to several countries around the world. Malaysia, the chosen one! Please don't let this opportunity slip away. This could be once in a lifetime. I will be going there again this Saturday. still have several parts to visit because I only went there last saturday at 6pm (Admission is FOC on Saturday only after 6pm).

After the visit at National Science Centre, me and my other two friends went to Chop and Steak at Kampung Bharu. It's quite a popular hang out for western food lovers because the variety of food at an affordable price. The mango juice is really good. But, we were so pissed off because the amount of food that we usually get had decreased and the fries were cold. I had complained once and it happened again. Any suggestion for other western restaurants around KL?

Last Sunday, I was invited to a friend's engagement ceremony. Her theme colour is purple. I thought I heard someone said she looks like wardina! As a friend, I should not say this but I have no idea at which part she does like Wardina! hahaha......sorry Murni. Tolong jangan libas aku dengan belakang kulit durian!! Congratulation. Such a nice and simple ceremony. The best part, get to meet the CBN friends. Ann, Nik, Ayu, Fiza, Juita, Awin and Mas. As usual, treat the place like our own. Siap bukak garage sale (hahaha...cayalah marketing team: Awin and Wani). I planned to go to The Mall in the evening but I was too exhausted.

Oh ya, did u guys get those scratch cards from KFC? Guess what? I won a RM 50 voucher from Seng Heng. Horray..I've been eyeing on the MP3 thumbdrive. Went to Subang Jaya to collect the voucher. Then went to UiTM coz my friend want to send her MUET slip. Picked up a friend at Pekeliling at 4.30pm and went to Mid Valley to watch Harry Potter. At last!. Surprisingly, my HP big fan mate was there (Kudin) and she sent me an SMS saying she saw me. I was so excited, the movie started at 6.30pm. I had a large coke and popcorn to accompany me and my friend. But I was kind of disappointed. The movie was less fun compared to HP 1 and HP2. I was so frustrated and much more worse when a man who sat near me was actually dozzed off and snored during the movie!! wharrgghhh..such an insult to Harry Potter!! I was so baffle I had no mood for dinner. But hey, the Harry Potter game is still fun. Well actually the movie wasn't that bad but I was so stupid to read the book a month before the movie came out. The story from the book keep popping in my mind while watching it. It kept ringing in my head
"hey, that's not right. He's supposed to receive the Firebolt in the middle. After his broom got smashed by Whimping Willow" and Hey, Harry was supposed to be at the bar with Ron and Hermione drinking Butterbeer when they overheard the conversation about Sirius Black and so on and so forth.. Hold on, where's the part where Harry received the permission letter from Sirius Black to allow him to visit Hogsmeade next semester? Arghhhh.......

Anyway, that's not the worst yet. The worst happened this morning when I woke up at 9.10am to realize that I have a class at 9.30am. Thanks to the cough syrup which I might had taken more doses that I should which had made me sleep like a dead throughout the night.....

p/s: Just gotten my first credit card from Bank Islam. Only applied a Silver card for a start (actually that's all I can afford..hehehe..) and can't wait to see the statement after spending it on books at Kinokuniya (Dan Brown - Angel and Damon) and petrols. Been eager to learn the philosophy of using credit card and how it works.

Lotus Elise at KLCC in conjunction with Father's Day celebration. The even showed how to assemble the car. Pretty cool.

Murni, you look so....... purple!!

Someone knocked this loyal traffic light at Alpha Angle's junction which had stood there for years through sunny and rainy day. The time has come to say goodbye (in awful way). Do you know that you will be fine RM 5000 if you accidentally or purposely knocked down or damaged a street light or a traffic light??? That's a lot!!!!!

Monday, June 14, 2004

Sorry, been away from this blog for quite some time. Been busy as usual. 3 staff were not around last saturday. Luckily me and another mate were under control. After office I went to Pusat Sains. Will tell you more bout the trip. Then went to Murni's engagement on Sunday and today watched Harry Potter at Mid Valley (hey kudin, what a coincidence!) . I will write more and post some photos too. I need to sleep now. I have a bad cough and tomorrow is the first day at school after 2 weeks holiday. Need to be early. come back later for complete updates.

I only have less than an hour before getting ready to work and yet managed to sneak to this website for a light quiz....:p


?? Which Natural Wonder Or Disaster Are You ??
brought to you by Quizilla
Life has its upside down. Some people had to struggle through hard life and get rewarded later. Some kicked off with good life and later only meet problems. I always thought that everyone had its bumpy rides in life and sometimes I wonder if there is any human being on earth with perfect, clean and easy life from the day he/she was born till the last day of life. Sometimes, we get influenced easily by people around us, televisions, internet and etc etc etc and we were exposed to all kind of lifestyle and sometimes, it effects us in life. What the hell am I talking about?

Straight to the point, a good friend of mine whose family's earliest plan was only to visited his girlfriend's family suddenly changed their plan 4 days before the meeting day from only visiting and 'merisik' tu engagement (bertunang). Easy for him as a guy, everything is provided and taken care of. After the sudden change, it's still not the biggest surprised when arriving at the girl's house only to found that her father ended up requested him to 'nikah' to his daughter on that day itself! I've seen friends and relatives going through this process from finding a soulmate, getting engaged and married but I've never seen anything as easy as what my friend had gone through.

I remembered seeing a friend of mine memorizing the lafaz nikah 2 weeks before the big day. But this lucky guy, he doesn't have two weeks. He doesn't even have two hours to do that. He managed to do so after third time. Okay, even Malik Mydin (the Malaysian English channel swimmer) also recited it three times, No big deal! But this kind of special situation is rare to me. Don't make any assumption about this situation. These good couple is not 'terlanjur' or whatsoever as the reason for such a hurry but the reason gave by the the girl's father (by now his father-in-law) is to avoid 'maksiat'. They are now halal husband and wife di sisi Islam and soon will be attending the course and get the certificate to certified them as husband and wife in terms of human law. I believe my friend's family had no problem with the sudden change of situation as I known them as among the good example of Islamic family.

When listening to his story, suddenly I visualised myself in his shoe. If I were him, will I have the guts and braveness to proceed with the plan? I've always heard and seen people talking bout marriage and it seems such a big and death to them and here I have seen someone who went through it as smooth as the morning breeze. Could it be God's gift to him for being kind and nice throughout his 23 years of life? Could it be just pure luck because he is a man and he doesn't have to worry since everything from A to Z will be arranged? (usually it's the girl's side who has to prepared like mad). And I asked myself this question. At this age of mine, am I ready to go walk through this important door to another part of life? I looked around me and looked deep into myself and I couldn't find the answer. And I wonder how did some people managed to do it so easily?

And I thought schooling was the toughest part of life before realizing that making this kind of decision is much more difficult to do. We have the choices of answer like what we used to have when we sat for exam (A,B,C or D) and only one answer will be the correct one. Will we be able to get the correct answer? God knows. When the time comes, the answer will roll to our feet........

p/s: I wonder if the reason to avoid maksiat could be labeled as a reason or as an excuse to get married? Should it get more priority compare to making ourself ready to carry the huge responsible? Please share your opinions with me.

As I've mentioned before, I had 3 straight days of holiday. I was supposed to work on saturday but since it's Agong's birthday..the whole nation is declared holiday. Then Sunday and Monday are my usual off day. I did nothing good during the last two days except eat, sleep, download movies, forums and repeat the step again and again. My parents were busy attending wedding's ceremony at few places. I had two days of doing nothing I know how it feel being idle.

Today, I had no choice but to go out. Need some fresh air. I went to the bank to check if the cheque has been cleared but damn, not yet. Duhh...could be tomorrow. No choice, have to withdrawl another account. Went to Carrefour Wangsa Maju for a nice kebab brunch and post some letters. Right after that, I drove to Low Yatt. I just love this place, where all IT people met. It's nice to see so many new stuff and gadgets (oww...I missed my PDA ). Bought 10 CD-R to burn stuff, my hard disk nearly comes to its limit. Downloaded so many games and movies. Now I wish I have 80GB hard disk. That would be really nice ;) I also bought some DVDs, all of them are disney animations. After all this while I didn't purchased any DVD and suddenly I am thinking of making my personal collection of disney animation movies. Then, went to Unitar to collect my new matric card. Straight away went to the library, miss it for a semester. Borrowed 3 books on digital photography and quickly dashed back to Wangsa Maju before the evening headache traffic jam start. Had dinner with a friend at Mali Nasi Lemak and arrived home at 9.00pm.

remember the cartoons that shown on TV that u used to get hooked up? One of my favourite is The Care Bear.....cute talking bears.

Cheer Bear
You're the Care Bear cheerleader! Your spunky personality and optimisim lifts everyone's spirit. Though you want everyone to be happy, you stand your ground on issues you feel strongly about and this can bring disunity among your friends. Despite this, you are a true believer in working together.

Duhh..what a lousy saturday. Had lunch at Kenny Rogers. Luckily I have a nice book to accompany me during the peaceful lunch. Later, went back to the cd shop to change the DVD game. Had to exchange with Simpson: Hit and Run and bought Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban cd game. Lucky me, I already installed Harry Potter Quidditch Game and Shrek 2 into my laptop last night. it for free. Hey, the new HP Game is nice. Just that I wish I have a better graphic card, it would be so smooth. But still the current one not that bad. Suddenly I have plenty of games to play. Besides Shrek 2 and Quidditch World Cup, Jazz Jackrabbit which is also among my favourite pc game which I downloaded few days ago is waiting for me. Got two version: Holiday Hare and Secret File. Too bad the new semester will be open soon. more game. Better save it after the semester end. Oh man, Shrek 2 movie has to go into my next movie list. I've just watched Shrek 1 and it was so good. Should have listen to my friend about the movie earlier. Thanks to streamyx, downloaded it for 3 days. This evening I watched Toy Story 1. Toy Story 2 is currently downloading and also Atlantis The Lost Empire. Suddenly I wanted to watch all the disney movies. It would be nice to have a collection of all Disney movies...hmmm, should check out Low Yatt next week if I could get few DVD. Damn...the HP1 and HP2 DVD which I've promised myself to get.
Hoorrayy...I've got myself the PC DVD of Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban game. This is the first time I purchased a DVD game (luckily my laptop is equipped with a DVD rom) and I was so excited to see that it bundled along with 5 more other games: HP&The Sorcerer's Stone, HP&Chamber of Secret, HP The Quidditch World Cup Game, Lego Creator HP&Chamber of Secret and Shrek 2. Quite a good bargain to get 6 games in a DVD for RM 12. But I was so disappointed that the main game, Prisoner of Azkaban is having a slight problem when installing. Even with all the crack and cd key, it is still helpless. The other games installed perfectly. I need to get down to the store again to ask for further instruction. There might be some tricks to install this game.

Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban PC Game I've expected. The game version will be launch along with the film. Thank God, it came out right on time. I have nothing to do this weekend (stupid me not knowing that tomorrow is a public holiday). Previous game, took me 2 weeks to complete with average of 2 hours per day on the game. Let's hope this time the game is much better and tougher.....Get it at your nearest store and get the original, dude (duh!)'s some screenshot of the game courtesy of EA Games

Why I like to hang out in KLCC after office hour?

1. Good food
2. Easy parking facility
3. Kinokuniya, my fav place for free reading (I do buy the books, sometimes)

4. I like to watch other people, how they behaves and how they dress.

5. Sometimes, there are interesting function or exhibition held at the centre court
Canon Booth
A brand new has Naza and Osim plat number. must be some kind of a prize.

6. Sometimes there are also free live shows by Filharmonik artist

7. Sebab ada TGV

kira, kesimpulannya KLCC nie best le.....:)
