Shop til I drop!

It’s June, half a year through 2009 and I’m 25. So it’s the beginning of the month and again, I’m broke. Spent RM1499 for the netbook plus another rm85 for ram upgrade and rm132 for the extra 1 year warranty. Not only that, I just bought 2 PS3 games yesterday! Oh halp! Well it’s a used one so the hole isn’t as deep with getting a new one. Valkyria Chronicles R1 an RPG, Strategy action turn based game and Disgaea 3 a simple Final Fantasy like game both for RM250. Consider it ok if u think it I get rm125 for each when new games are selling around rm200.

Facebook Phenomena

Everyone and their mother uses facebook. The first ever social networking site I used was community zero, after that was friendster. CZ was damn cool at that time where who can customize the page with flash and all. friendster just recently updated their page to be able to use css and add multimedia stuff. facebook page cant be customized yet. Just a matter of time I guess. but i prefer them to be that way, simple look.

facebook is a great place to connect and get updated but sometimes ppl are just taking advantage on how simple this thing gets you connected. for example on birthday wishes, ppl used to write you letters back on the old days, give birthday cards and wishing you happy birthday on the phone. if their cheap enough just by texting is considered lame. now ppl just write a simple 1 liner on your facebook wall on your birthday. no more cards, sms, phone calls. sigh.
same goes for their wedding ceremony. like how they just create an invitation “you have been invited to” bla bla rsvp, yes,no,maybe. Ppl are getting lazier by each year. Damn sad now how they arent even calling or sending their wedding cards anymore. I just want to say sorry if I dont reply to their invitations via facebook, it’s just lame. it feels like you’re nothing but a stranger.

One more thing that I find annoying is the freaking quizzes. I really hate those ppl who post their stupid lame retarded quiz results in bulk on 5-10 in 1 go. Damn spamming my screen since what I like to do on facebook is checking out pictures and status updates. Nice that they have that on the tab but its not on default rite? No one cares if you’re a nerd or gangster during highschool, when you’ll get rich or how you’ll end up in 10yrs time quizzes. They’re just freaking fictional answers and questions that don’t serve any purpose. Why waste time on those beats me.

Neways, times running out. Im on my netbook connected using Celcom prepaid broadband. Daily usage ends soon. Seems like Celcom is broadband is a good alternative when mobile with their vast coverage.


Why DiGi 3g broadband service fails.

Fail Coverage

Why DiGi 3g’s broadband service fails is this. No coverage at my house. At least I know U-Mobile and Amax got my house covered.


A Quater of Century

Posting on a newly bought Netbook which is an Acer D250. Abit hard to get used to the small keyboard and typing while watching anime on my pc. Cant concentrate coz this to aru majutsu no index episode is kinda messed up, lol.
Anyhow, decided on choosing the Acer model because of it’s slimness, the build quality and the keyboard button placements. The salesman was recomending the Asus 1000HE but it only comes in white, thicker and the right shift key is in awkward placing. The Acer black/grey silver looks much better although the battery life is not as much as the asus’.
Cheaper than the Asus by rm200 although I found out later that the guy marked up the Asus price by abit. Lucky didn’t get that one. Included with the Asus netbook were the cooling pad which i find really useful to keep my legs cool, mic and earphone, usb hub, usb mouse and the kensington lock.

On another note, I am still trying to translate Suzumiya Haruhi episode 8 in Malay. Hahaha, stupid I know. My Japanese isn’t good, English is bad and my Malay is weak. Why I thought of subbing in Malay is just because there aren’t that many groups doing it. I count only one in Tokyotosho. I don’t blame them since after half length of the Haruhi episode I found myself using weird weird Malay. They way Japanese people talk is totally different from the Malay I know. What Im trying to do is using normal everyday spoken Malay and not like words coming from the dictionary. Still, its hard to think of the words..hmm. Reason is I talk in Malay but my mind says in English even when I talk to myself.

Before I end, Animax on Astro will be showing Hayate no Gotoku S1 next month! Shakugan no Shana S2 in July. Can’t wait to watch again Hayate’s puns on a 42″ lcd tv. Too bad not in High Def.


More Cards More Payment

All Paid

Finally I’ve settled the hosting payment after 3 months due. Couldn’t pay earlier because my Paypal balance is almost zero. Maybank and Al-Rajhi visa debit cards can’t be verified by Paypal. After almost 3 weeks I finally receive Public Bank Visa debit card this afternoon. Went to the nearest PB branch and deposited RM200 in this card. Few hours later…

32.85 USD = 121.316 MYR

RM200 – 121.3 = RM78.70 balance left ….sad, I need to find a cheaper webhost I think.


Waiting for a debit card that actually works

WHAT DO YOU OWE MONEY FOR?

We have the last payment on this account to be $11.95 on 2009-01-04 19:32:11.

Since then the following charges have been made to the account:

2009-01-11 – $10.95 for “My Crazy Domain Insane” through 2009-02-10.

2009-02-11 – $10.95 for “My Crazy Domain Insane” through 2009-03-10.

Can’t get my Maybank and Al-Rajhi Visa debit card to work with Paypal. Last week I applied for Public Bank Visa debit card after reading posts on blogs that it’s usable with Paypal. I’ll see how it goes and then pay the bill 😕


E71 is FTW?

Not much update this couple of days. I just got my E71 Grey Steel Avaxx set from Renee. Actually bought from her 2 days ago but the first set had a problem when I put my U-Mobile simcard in that phone, it fails to recognise the memory card. WTH right? So I called her about the problem and she managed to get me a new set which so far is awesome!

I had N95 8GB before I gave it to my brother to use. The thing that dissapoints me the most about N95 8GB was the battery life. Very lame. Can’t even last 1 day. Even after I bought an extra battery. Original somemore from the Nokia shop. The GPS lock was also quite slow. Using E71 the locking was so fast. Ofcourse in offline mode.

So how much? It’s RM1650 :$: Didn’t I say I was not going to spend anything this month? :down:
