I’m starting to think that

I’m starting to think that blogs are just not for busy working peeps like myself. Ah well, I try my best.

The family went to Redang last week, during the long hols. Drove up to K. Terengganu on Thursday, and stayed overnight at the Stingray Beach Resort (not much of a resort actually, but the owner had a pet monkey!). Next morning we were off on a ferry to Redang Beach Resort.

Wasn’t very comfortable with the huge crowds on the island (although it was interesting to see all the fluorescent jackets of different colors bobbing up and down among the waves) but the view (both under and over water, *wink*) was gorgeous. Amazing variety of marine life here, I tell you. It’s similar to Tioman when I went there a long time ago. But then I’m not sure if the reefs there were better, since I was paying more attention to keeping my dinghy from sinking.

While we’re in the subject of dinghies, i.e. sailing, I’m starting duty as the manager of MSD Petaling’s Sailing Team for this year’s Sukan Selangor or SUKSES. The most important part about this is that I get one whole week unrecorded leave. Yippie! This year’s team isn’t as strong as before, but we’ll do our best. ๐Ÿ™‚


My sister finally got her Vaio. A heavy GRZ. Pictured above is her temporary workspace. Ha ha!

Come t, let’s go yumcha!!


Tried to improve the performance of my PC a few days ago after the upgrade. Happily installed the latest trial version of Diskeeper as the first step. Did a boot-time MFT (Master File Table) defrag which messed up my primary driving, and now I’ve lost most of my important data… password lists, documents, sux.

Now that my boot drive is empty, it’s rather fast. One positive effect at least.

Been coming back late from work lately… almost on an everyday basis. Not that I’ve come to enjoy work.. but somehow it’s the best time for me to work after 5.. less noise, more concentration.. kinda wish I could bring my work home now. Actually, cancel that.. sheesh.

Now reading Shoot!, a manga about soccer. Schweet..

Hey, where did all my entries go!?

ใ‚ใ‚ใ€ๆœˆไปฃใ‚Šใงใ™ใญใ€‚ Sigh, what a month it’s been. Working up to 9-10 at night, coming back to work on public hols… madness I tell ya. And I have a feelin’ it’s going to continue well into this month.

It was an awfully nice day today (without work, how else can it be?). Woke up at 11am to the tune of the noise from above. Wasn’t as hard for me to get out of bed as I was used to. Ayin was already up, playing Sims on my puter. Grr, kacau only.

Went out at 12:30 to send my mom to a gathering. Since the whole family came along, we might as well get some lunch and do some shopping as well. So off we went to Mid Valley! Damn, was it full. Took a while to get a parking spot, but when we did, we got one right next to the escalators. Since we were in the Centre Court, we went straight up to look at the range of notebooks currently in market. My sister settled for a Vaio V505P. Awesome choice.. think I’ll also get one.

Had lunch, then a short trip to P K Time to get my watch battery replaced. Stupid idiots took 15 minutes to tell me that my watch was broken. I was like *toot*!? Since when? Just to make sure that they weren’t the ones who actually broke it, we went up one floor to Time Gallerie and THEY got the battery replaced. Nice service too. Told me how to reset my stopwatch the next time it desyncs.

Btw, while waiting out those 15 minutes, went to Speedy’s next door and grabbed the 2nd installation of the Inu Yasha DVD set. Although it was DVD, the source was probably VHS, and there were purple outlines everywhere. Well, it’s still nice to have something subbed in English. The subs were not horrible like most HK DVDs, but it looked like it was prepared hastily, with words misspelt and letters missing/switched in almost every line. But it was worth the 90 ringgit.

Now all I need is my sis to get her Vaio delivered, and coupled with a VGA-to-S-Video/RGB converter I’ll be able to watch DVDs again on my ใƒ†ใƒฌใƒ“ใ€‚ใ‚„ใฃใŸ๏ผ

Gung-ho’ed through a traffic jam at 3pm. Stopped by at the office to try and get my SSH tunnel working. Went home to find that it didn’t work. Sux. (FYI, I was trying to open a Remote Desktop Connection from my house to my office PC).

Watched DVDs, drooled over pictures of the V505, slept, watched TV, etc etc etc. yada yada yada. No more detailed updates for me. ๐Ÿ˜›

Now trying to download Miriam Vol 7. And new Tenjyou Tenge chapters. Argh, something’s not letting me get my share of manga today.
