I won a netbook again!

December 11th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

I still rmb my last yr Xmas wishes which posted in my FB, nothing fancy jst bcoz it was necessary:
- Laptop [$3K]
- HP [$1.5K]
- Ext HDD 500GB [$200]
- Nice Logictech mouse [$30]

All achieved!!!

When I changed my job, my co gv me a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad T410 + Nokia E series hp on July. Then after 1 mth later, I got won a prize - DELL netbook fr PLC Petshop bt end up selling cheap 2 my sister for my 8 yr old niece. Bt the story hvnt end yet... I jst won myself a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 fr my co annual dinner too!

So, I was like... wtf, I wish 1 decent laptop bt end up havin 3 in return?! Im really felt lucky & glad of it. Bt im not a greedy ppl, so I decided to cont use my ThinkPad; Dell netbook gv 2 my niece (cough... selling dirt-cheap Stick Out Tongue);

Abt my last S10 IdeaPad, if u r aware of it... It was actually 2 yr ago model (which cost abt RPP$1,799 bt now only cost around $1.2k) which sponsored from partner IBM aka Lenovo. I tested & found out it kinda slow hence decided 2 upgrade its RAM from 1GB [Internal 500MB + ext 500MB] 1.5~2.5GB. Then gift it out as Xmas gift, hohoho~

[Do not waste] I always think tt, if i cnt use it & keeping aside 2 collect dust @ my home, better gift 2 some1 who need it.

Regarding my ext HDD, i brought it last mth w/ free pouch from Western Digital brand. And I got my mouse fr some1 special 2 me Smile Wanna say TQ 2 her...

Saved - $3.5k + $500 + $30 = $4k+
Spent - $1.5k + $200 = $1.7k

My long-wait Asics shoes finally arrived~

November 15th, 2010 at 07:57 am

I was once a Nike fans bt now I bcm very disappointed w/ their product. All of my Nike spoiled w/in 1 yrs, some said due 2 water soakin mk its glue cm apart fr it's soles; put it aside 4 sometimes & its airbag broke; store in my car boots under sun & leather broken in2 pieces...

Watever the reason was, I throw away almost all of them. No doubt they're fashionable & nice design bt x long-lastin / comfortable if compare 2 others.

End up I gv Asics a try & I search up & down @ my places - KL, M'sia. Bt too bad it wasn't a popular brand in my area, majority of cost a bomb & last season 'left-over' stocks fr other country =_="

No choice bt I go buy it on ebay.uk & it only cost half of the price here w/ latest A/W season model & latest technology. It was a trail runnin shoes w/ Asics gel, Gore-tex, solid outside & yet comfortable inside & superb grip/thread on the bottom...

When I go bck fr office 2day, it was rainin cat's & dogs... Immediately I replaced my suede leather shoes in2 it, no more worry abt those water poles/dirt on my way 2 carpark SmileStartin 2 feel pity on others, hehe~

- 50% cheaper than here (free shippin international) Big Grin $54 pounds = $280 (RPP $599)
- Save my time & petrol/gas/parking... hassle-free

Expectin it wil last me few yrs~ Wil brin it w/ me 4 trekkin, runnin, travelin...

1st May 2009

May 3rd, 2009 at 05:23 am

2day was PH (Labour Day) - consider a WW holiday, I go 4 a movie ("He jst not tt in2 u")w/ my X at 1U. Knowin tt v cnt book any tic w/in tis very few hours, so I tried purchase online usin my UOB cc -Done. 5th row fr front, stil consider OK 4 me (as long as nt 1st-4th row).

B4 tt I hvnt took my dinner, jst grab a cream butter while Im on my way 2 cinema. So, v decide hv sth at nearby restaurant - Vietnam Crusine. I jst cm bck fr Vietnam, bt I found out tt their food x really suit me. Bt I do love their coffee (taste thicker / strong aroma) & beer - coz it was CHEAP as water :P

Ok, I let my X order which she always does a gd job on tis... A seafood noodles, tomyam soup, fried vege, 2 bowls of rice & tri-colors ice kacang (ice-blended). A bit rushin 4 us 2 finish it all, coz movie gonna 2 start w/in 40 minutes~ Phew~

The movie was nice, I love it... N it mk me laugh somehow. I love Jennifer Aniston since the "Friends".

Show end, v decide go 4 a drinks. So, v drive 2 The Curve - Laudry (aka pub / bistro). I ordered a bucket of Heneiken (consist of 5 btl). Bt somehow, v nt much in the mood of talking... felt borin & dead air. V agree 2 go home earlier after knock-off those beers.

Wow~ Wat a day... I spent over budget again. At 1st I tot jst a movie would b nice, bt end up other activities.

Here u go abt my spendin of the day:

Movie $21
Vietnam Cruisine $48 [Cn b avoid]
Pub / Bistro $78 [Cn b reduce]
TOTAL $147

*Im told myself nt 2 spend much again during tis mth...

Books on Sales in Popular

November 25th, 2007 at 01:11 am

How many book did u read this month / year?

Im a books fan of all kind, bt I usually only buy it during a book fair. Compare with english book, chinese version was far more cheaper. Im glad tt I knew chinese language since Im fr Asia country.

I do relised tt an english book can easily cost at least RM50++ above. But same book title in chinese max was only RM60 or lesser ( I can found it around RM30).

Not to mentioned publisher in China was always cheaper than in Taiwan. Altot paper quality wasn't that good & nice looking.

End up i brought total of 8 books & cost RM110 only. I think it shld b enuf 4 me 2 past my free time 'til end of d year 2007 Smile

Every penny spends in book was worth...

Im bck~

June 19th, 2007 at 04:58 am

After broke-up w/ my gf, i didnt bloggin on tis until now. Bt start from tis week, I'll try mk it as a habit 2 make a post at least once/week.

Wat's the majority changed now... I brought a house (condo) w/ helps of my parent, i manage 2 pay the 10% d/p & loan from 90% Citibank (period was 30 yr - bt 4 sure I'll try my best 2 cut into 20 yr).

My salary cnt afford me a house rite now, bt it only start 2 payin bck after 3 years (at the mean time, I jst ned 2 pay interest). Sound stupid, bt I got my reason too.

1. Coz I'll changed my job soon, mean got increament on my pay.

2. Property after 3 yr wil bcome xpensive than now, I cnt find any nice location & house which cn below $200k.

3. My parent willin 2 borrow me the d/p. As long as I can pay them bck monthly (no interest :P)

4. Always ought 2 hv my own home sweet home. I planned 2 get it when I reach 30. So, buyin now & after completed wil b a perfect timing.

5. If I dont spend my $ in2 some proper way, I'll jst waste it like tt. So, it was actually a kind of "forcing" me 2 puttin all my $ in2 a worthy way.

Now, I hope everything wil b fine. Gettin a better job, earn more & njoy my life. I lost a beloved gf, bt I got bck gangs of buddies. I travel a lots, w/in a year I been 2 5 islands (Redang, Lang Tengah, Perhentian, Bali...) Next month wil go Bangkok too.

Start njoy my life alone, keep on moving ahead... Smile

Need help~ Mold problems

January 30th, 2007 at 01:16 am

My new apt was havin mold problem due to too humid (14th flr & less sunlight xposed) & lack of enuf air circulation.

I tried searchin 4 an solution, I knew the best way was to purchase a unit humidifier. Bt it cost too much 2 my wallet & hard 2 find it here.

Alternative solution was homemade dehumidifier as T-tree oil, Grapefruit Seed Extract & Vinegar. The most cheapest way was Vinegar, I guess I wil gv it a try SmileBelow info was wat I managed 2 find online:

* Tea Tree Treasure
Nothing natural works for mold and mildew as well as this spray. I've used it successfully on a moldy ceiling from a leaking roof, on a musty bureau, a musty rug, and a moldy shower curtain. Tea tree oil is expensive, but a little goes a very long way. Note that the smell of tea tree oil is very strong, but it will dissipate in a few days.

2 teaspoons tea tree oil
2 cups water
Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, and spray on problem areas. Do not rinse.
Makes 2 cups
Preparation Time: Under a minute
Shelf Life: Indefinite
Storage: Leave in the spray bottle

* Grapefruit Seed Extract
The advantage of using grapefruit seed extract instead of tea tree oil for killing mold is that it is odorless.

20 drops grapefruit seed extract
2 cups water

Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, and spray on problem areas. Do not rinse.
Makes 2 cups
Preparation Time: A minute or so
Shelf Life: Indefinite
Storage: Leave in the spray bottle

* Vinegar Spray
Straight vinegar reportedly kills 82 percent of mold. Pour some white distilled vinegar straight into a spray bottle, spray on the moldy area, and let set without rinsing if you can put up with the smell. It will dissipate in a few hours.

I heard those salt lamp oso wil helps fight mold problem as well, coz it was made from salt (salt wil sucks wet/water away) ??!
