Today, went down to Ngee Ann Polytechnic with Jeremy to accompany him for his DAE and stuff.

Headed down town and went to Party World for karaoke session.

Then I left the group alone and went home because I didn’t want to catch any movie.

Now I’m at home thinking of games to play besides DotA, MU Online, World of Warcraft, Counter-Strike 1.6 because don’t have good players to play with or just bored because they are not as fun as they used to be…

Now my shopping list…

Dell 2408FWP – Around 1.1K SGD-1.3K SGD

Apple Keyboard – Around 58 SGD

Wallmount for LCD – Around 100-200 SGD

USB DAC – Around 200-400 SGD

New speakers (No idea what to get yet) – Budget 500 SGD

I need to start saving another 1K to finish my shopping list.

I’ve decided to stick with my PDA for the moment since there’s not much decent phone for me to change to.

Right now my only income is Singtel Roadshow.

Every Sunday 8 SGD/HR.

Fun and slack job.

Chinese New Year’s coming.

Final theory test date coming 19/02.

Can’t wait for JAE results to see where I’m posted to…

Nothing more to type here…

Can’t think of anything interesting.

Shall update when if there’s things I want to share 🙂

18th December (if I’m not wrong)

Went to Lavender as Dewei wanted to extend his passport.

After that went to Parco Bugis then to town.

They did their shopping then we decided to go for a karaoke session at Party World.

Before that.

We bought some Famous Amos cookies.

I bought myself 500G + 130G(free).

Damn happy lah hahahaha.

I love Famous Amos “No Nut Chocolate Chips”

Karaoke till 1.30 a.m then walk home from town.

Haha.

I don’t think walking home from town is far actually.

We could have taken NR6 though…

19th December

Sold my XFX 8800GTS 640MB and bought a Sapphire X1950XTX 512MB DDR4 CrossFire Edition card.

Yes downgraded because I don’t play Direct X games, Vista sucks and G80 sucks on OS X.

Tomorrow I’ll be going to Sim Lim Square at around 11-12 to get my rams.

Then I’ll go down to Sony at Wisma to take my customer’s PSP.

Damn bored.

Just finished playing DotA.

Not really finished. Me and Aik Guan got custom kicked by a noob host haha.

I’m in a dilemma now.

What to buy next?

  • LG KU990 Viewty
  • LCD > 22″
  • Xbox 360
  • 8GB/4GB Rams
  • Keyboard
  • Headphone
  • T-shirts

Hehe. I think many people will find it quite shocking for me to put t-shirt on my list.

Nothing much to blog now.

Oh yeah.

I passed my Basic Theory Test~

Final Theory is on 19/02/08 hope I’ll pass with one try and register for PDL then pass!

Driving license wait for me!

If I ever get the chance to work in Famous Amos I’ll be damn happy because I’ll be eating their cookies ^^(Without paying =X).

Eating chocolates make me happy 🙂

Got a Party World Voucher for a room valid till 15 January 2008.

Okay. It’s been ages since my last update.

It’s 6.28 a.m now and I’m still awake.

Recently watched Brothers, Stardust and Beowulf.

All aren’t worth watching.

Bought a 500GB Western Digital Hard disk for my computer model WD5000AAKS.

Converted one of my existing 320GB hard drive to HFS+ format and installed Mac OS X 10.5 and just updated it to 10.5.1 today.

I love Leopard(Mac OS X [10.5.1]).

The Spaces feature rocks.

It creates multiple desktop so you can run every application full screen and just hit F8 to change another screen.

Parallels Desktop works great too! I’m able to run MU Online via Parallels Desktop running Windows XP and still do my stuff without interrupting the game.

Just changed my graphic card and DVD drive as well.

Samsung SH-203B DVD Drive and ASUSTeK 7800GTX (Borrowed to use when I sold my 1900XT)

Sold my ASUSTeK 1900XT and bought a XFX 8800 GTS 640MB.

   

 

          

 

Working great on Windows but performance is not as good on Mac 😦

Gonna find a job soon so I can get money to buy more stuff! HEHEHE.

My shopping list now.

Dell 22″ LCD 599$

Apple Keyboard  78$

Silicon Cover for Keyboard 36$

New wallet ?$

That’s all for now ^^.

Oh yeah received my Ubuntu discs via mail after like 3 weeks?

 

Okay. That’s all for now.

I’ll end my post with my Mac desktop screenshot 🙂

Time to update a little.

Finally changed my phone after so many years.

Changed to Dopod 818 Pro right now running Windows Mobile 6 with HTC Home and HTC Touch feature and much more…

Bought a 2 GB Micro-SD card for it.

I like this phone because it has big screen but the down side of it is that the alarms are way too soft and I miss alot of calls and SMSes.

Pictures taken with my phone not so good.

Yesterday I got back my old steam account which was hijacked when I forgot to logout in a Cyber Cafè last year.

Finally I took time to submit a case and verification to Steam/Valve to reclaim my account.

Hehe. Wait till my brother gets a computer then we can play Counter-Strike together online 😀

Used to own 3 steam account but now I’m left with 2 because one of my account got banned thanks one fucker who haven’t even compensate me and don’t even want to admit that he used hacks on my account. What a pussy.

Anyone who plays Counter-Strike 1.6 can add me on their friendlist.

Add these 2.

Sold my Razer eXactMat because it’s too small for my liking.

Now still don’t know what mousepad I should buy. Considering Barracuda Juggernaut .

I’m also thinking of getting Razer Tarantula Keyboard.

Haha.

O’ Level is just round the corner yet I’m still thinking about all this unimportant stuff.

Okay. Time for some interesting read I came across online.

The story is about a woman, who is looking for guys who make more than USD 500k or more. Here’s what she wrote on Craiglist, a dating/personals website:

What am I doing wrong?

Okay, I’m tired of beating around the bush. I’m a beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I’m articulate and classy. I’m not from New York . I’m looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in New York City , so I don’t think I’m overreaching at all.

Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average around 200 – 250. But that’s where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won’t get me to central park west. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca, and she’s not as pretty as I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I get to her level?

Here are my questions specifically:

– Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars, restaurants, gyms
– What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won’t hurt my feelings
– Is there an age range I should be targeting (I’m 25)?
– Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper east side so plain? I’ve seen really ‘plain jane’ boring types who have nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I’ve seen drop dead gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What’s the story there?
– Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows – lawyer, investment banker, doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they hang out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out?
– How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for MARRIAGE ONLY

Please hold your insults – I’m putting myself out there in an honest way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I’m being up front about it. I wouldn’t be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn’t able to match them – in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a nice home and hearth.

Gold-digger? Well, here’s a reply from someone who would have been a likely target:

Dear Pers-431649184:

I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament. Firstly, I’m not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy who fits your bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here’s how I see it.

Your offer, is plain and simple a cr@ppy business deal. Here’s why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you
suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring my money. Fine, simple. But here’s the rub, your looks will fade and my money will likely continue into perpetuity…in fact, it is very likely that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won’t be getting any more beautiful!

So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation accelerates! Let me explain, you’re 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!

So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a buy and hold…hence the rub…marriage. It doesn’t make good business sense to “buy you” (which is what you’re asking) so I’d rather lease. In case you think I’m being cruel, I would say the following. If my money were to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out. It’s as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage.

Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So, I wonder why a girl as “articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful” as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K hasn’t found you, if not only for a tryout.

By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then we wouldn’t need to have this difficult conversation.

With all that said, I must say you’re going about it the right way. Classic “pump and dump.” I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of lease, let me know.

So girls. You all are depreciating assets! HAHAHA!

Ok now for something amusing.

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test … do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
“big picture” oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can “get it” (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking

Please use the tagboard and let me know you see clockwise or anti-clockwise.

I’m going to make a chart for you guys to see the majority. 

This is a “BEST JOKE” award winner in UK

One Chinese person walks into a bar in America late one night and he saw
Steven Spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushes over to
him, and asks for his autograph.

Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says “You Chinese people bombed our
Pearl Harbor, get out of here.”

The astonished Chinese man replied “It was not the Chinese who bombed your Pearl Harbor , it was the Japanese”.

“Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you’re all the same,” replied Spielberg.

In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says “You sank the
Titanic; my forefathers were on that ship.”

Shocked, Spielberg replies “It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me.”

The Chinese replies, “Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you’re all the same.”

This particular joke won an award for the best joke in a competition in
Britain .

Funny that it won the best joke award in UK because for me. It’s not that funny.

History of middle finger

What is a SOB.

Reason why eBay’s cheaper.

Last but not least cool toy car!

Right now overclocked to 3.6 Ghz from Stock 2.66 Ghz.

Ram running quite loose timing.

Rams used to be hot but after installing the eXtreme the air seems to cool the rams too.

When I have the time I’ll push it more.

Happy.
