Looking forward

There are a few things on my list that I'm looking forward to. Just thinking about them excites me.

1. Graduation in Sept.

This one definitely has to top the list. I'm finally done away with assignments and exams, at least for now lah.

2. Snow Leopard release in Sept.

Who doesn't get excited over the US$29 upgrade?

3. Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol release in Sept

I read The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons so I'm definitely going to buy The Lost Symbol to find out what Robert Langdon is up to this time.

4. Infinity Ward's Call Of Duty 6 or Modern Warfare 2 release in Nov.

I saw the gameplay trailer on YouTube the other day... so I'm pretty stoked at what I saw...

*Also looking forward to submitting documents to process my LPR application, and then having my LPR application approved and finally landing that desired job.*

Since my last blog entry...

I've abandoned this space for long enough. Many things have happened since my last entry.

The last entry was written five days before my final exam, so since that entry, I:

1) sat for my final exam.

2) came out fucking worried that I might flunk it again.

3) bought the 10-22mm lens that I always wanted.

4) went on short vacation to the island of Penang with the missus.

5) from Penang we went on a one-day trip to nearby Langkawi island. Hired a car and drove around the island.

6) returned to Sunway and began worrying about my exam result thereafter days and nights. lol.

7) went to Genting Highlands, twice. Once with my auntie and her family, and another occasion with the usual suspects: Felix, Dody and Ivan. Won rm 200 in the beginning but quickly in a span of only 2 hours, lost all the winnings plus rm 300 of my own money. fuck!!

8) killing zombies, monsters and witches on a daily basis at a nearby cybercafe with friends.

9) resumed playing GTA IV (as of typing this, I've only have one more mission before i beat the game).

10) fucking jubilated when result was released. I passed and i'm gonna graduate this Sept.

11) visited the missus in Singapore and met up with a couple of friends during my stay.

I think I've covered most things that had happened to the best that I could remember.

Getting a new 'cat' this September

So I stayed up at 1 a.m on Tuesday waiting for the WWDC'09 to begin. I was really, really hoping for some juicy Apple news.

To me, the WWDC'09 delivered both excitements and disappointment.

First the excitements.

1) Apple's brand new OS dubbed the Snow Leopard. Offers 64-bit computing and lots of "refinements". But, little or no changes to the UI at all. Best thing about the new OS? Upgrade will only cost US$29!!! Releasing in September.

2) Brand new iPhone 3G S (Speed). Looks good. But am not especially excited because I'm not an iPhone user. The apps showcased during the keynote was fantastic though. I was actually hoping that the new iPhone would sport a matte back instead of shiny one, and of course a 'glowing Apple logo' at the back. Apparently, Apple still wants to retain the original iPhone 3G look.

Now the BIG disappointment:

Apple decided that the 13" MacBook Unibody will now be called 13" MacBook Pro. The price will be cheaper and of course it will have higher specs, too.

WTF! This is so unfair. I just bought mine 6 months ago for fuck's sake. Even worse, I bought mine at a time when the Rupiah was weak, at RM1 = IDR3340. Now it's strengthening to RM1= IDR28XX.

So not only has the 13" MacBook unibody been renamed to MacBook Pro, it has better specs and costs much less.


Oh well, life's like that. But I had to rant.

Revenge's coming.

When Transformers first came out, I think the majority liked Bumblebee more than the rest of the robots. I know I did.

Now that the sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, is coming out very soon, the internet is rampant with pictures of scenes from the movie, robots and cars that will appear in the movie and lastly the toys!

Everyone, say hello to Sideswipe,

I think the toy is so gonna sell well, if not better than Bumblebee.

Of course if you talk about Transformers you must not forget the very hot Megan Fox.

I'm sure you will remember her from a scene in the first movie where her body bent over Sam's car hood.

I think Michael Bay is paying homage to that scene in the next movie with this image:

Windows 7, up and running.

I'm test-driving Windows 7 RC1 on my MacBook now.

At first I was torn between having to choose to install it Boot Camp-style or Virtual Machine-style.

I just got the Win7 iso a few days ago from my friend. And I read that if you want to install it via Boot Camp, you have to burn the iso into a DVD so that it can run as installation CD. While I also read that it is possible to run the iso from USB sticks, it requires technical expertise which I do not possess.

So in the end, I chose to install Windows 7 via Parallel Desktop (You need to upgrade to recent versions so that Parallel Desktop can identify that you are trying to install Windows 7 (Experimental).

For a complete installation walk-through, I read this.

It took me roughly 45 mins to have Windows 7 up and running, with all drivers properly installed.

If you haven't got Windows 7, download is still available till July 2009.

There is a one-year time frame before the RC1 copy of Windows 7 expires on June 1 2010. However, starting March 1 2010, your computer will shutdown every two hours. This, I presume is to remind you to get the commercial copy which should be out in stores by then.

Bold steps.

Out of the blue today, my Dad came to me and said,"I got you a Blackberry".

I couldn't believe what I heard. A Blackberry!

Not even once have I thought that I would own a Blackberry. The iPhone 3G, on the other hand, had always been on my mind.

The Blackberry my Dad got me was the Bold 9000. Luckily it was the Bold and not the Curve nor the Storm. Good choice, Dad.

Having used it for a few hours now, I think I'm growing fonder of the phone. I like that I am able to use the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) to go browse, check emails and chat online without being limited to using 3G or Wifi.

It helps that I'm using XL in Indonesia and XL has this service called the Blackberry One that charges a flat rate of Rp.5000/day, unlimited for internet usage. Remarkably affordable.

I only hope that Malaysia's telco can offer such cheap BIS as XL's.

Thank you, Dad, for the phone! I'm finally a smartphone user.

I watched Dragon Ball Evolution last night and frankly it was one of the worse movies I've watched this year.

It was a disappointment, really. But Qiqi and Bulma were worth watching though. Hehs.

There's another thing that I wanna mention. In my last entry, I talked about The Unborn movie poster and praised how good a poster it was.

So last night while watching Dragon Testicles Evolution, I was freaking excited when I came across The Unborn poster. But there was something different about this particular one.

I really LMAO-ed hard on the spot because the poster I saw was this:

(I forgot to take a picture of it so I had to google 'Unborn movie poster Malaysia version' and luckily Google managed to find the poster on Doctor Popcorn's blog.)

it's both fucking hilarious and ridiculous.

A Good Movie Poster

Movie poster for The Unborn, showing off Odette Yustman’s ass

Based on the title alone, I think I'll give this horror movie a miss. Maybe I would watch it, but there would be consideration and perhaps, hesitation.

But now they put the female protagonist's (I'm guessing) butt on the poster (oh boy, she's got nice bottom alright) and instantly I'm interested.

Good marketing ploy.

Ooh love that ass.

Recently, I borrowed a friend's M1's mobile broadband, the USB modem kind, to download some torrent movie files. I got the shock of my life when I accidentally saw that the download speed was in MEGABYTES PER SECOND INSTEAD OF KILOBYTES PER SECOND.

So excited was I that the next thing I did was to quickly make screenshots of this super rare occurrence! So this is my proof!

I've just been informed by the courier that my packaged has been delivered and it has been received on my behalf by a Mr. Yeoh.

I'm now totally very impressed with Apple Store Malaysia and DHL's services. Took only 3 days from the moment I ordered online till it arrived at Sunway Monash Condo!!

It was really unexpected, I had mistakenly estimated that the item would only reach me by the 12th wrong was I!

i've just emailed the people at the condo admin office to ask them to keep my package in a safe place... i hope they handle it gently...

i'm losing sleep thinking that my precious package is lying somewhere on the floor and not beside me right this moment.

anyhow, i can't wait for 12th Jan when i finally can hug in my amrs! yeah!!!!!
