People always laughed at me for buying second hand stuff on the internet. "Eee, your one old one. You see scratches here and there, and people used before, eee" Something like this kind of comments are always common from my friends. But to me, I don't see what is wrong with buying second hand stuff, somemore I had been working in second hand phone industries long enough to differiate between which is a better deal. If you really want to differiate between a used phone and a new phone. Each has their own advantage. Mainly, a new one is new from factory and appearance is really flawless. A second hand which will be cheaper and appearance and function will not be as good as new. Why I prefer an old set over a new one 1) Mainly is the price of course. I am a techology geek, I don't use thing longer than 6mth. Electronic stuff advances in a very fast pace, today you buy these, by tomorrow it is considered out-dated. Even not so, the price will starts to depreciate. So

Finally the art is here

Some of you may be guessing if I am going to lock up my blog. Sort of I guess. For me to better concentrate during exam period or give me time before I organize my new blog before I officially publish it online. Some of my friend told me that my bear brick design was a little bit kiddy, so I decided to create a neater layout. Color scheme I choose black cause it is the safest color. The only major chances will be my links. I create thumbnail for preview purposes. Well, if you wondering why did your picture appear. Reason being that I went to each of my links and chose the nicest picture of it and ripped it off. Since they were already published, so I don't think any of them were sensitive for me to hyperlink it. Although, I didn't ask for permission to do so. But I did put reference loh. But nonetheless if anyone of you for some reasons think that you are not comfortable with me linking up your picture, tag me and I will remove them. :) So say goodbye to bear brick because &

Credit goes to Vincent Sim for teaching me the technic to play around with focus on my NK 6500. I didn't know until he told me that I can actually bring the focus point of my handphone camera off the center. If you doesn't really know what I am talking about.. Let me explain a little bit in details. when you are take macro picture, which you focus an object a a very near distance, it will automatically focus the object in the center. At the same distance, you move your camera to place the object using the 1/3 rules. You will then achieve a different feel on the picture. Because focusing object in the center is very dull will eventually lose it's emphasis. Therefore 1/3 rules are becoming popular in recent era of photography. An examples of bring focus to the side and applying 1/3 rules. These 2 picture show the different effect on the focus taken at the same place. I am optioning Flash Application in sem 2. It is a application that allows you to create animation on the

I spotted this behind bugis street. very nice so I took a picture of it. If you think this is some kind of cultural artifact, you are wrong. This is a chocolate fondue.

Somemore the seeds are so small. You see... Liwen tried to open but in the end get a little bit only. Recently, a lot of project...

Fear Factor: Ngeen Ann retention wall series~ Today, I finally conquered the fear of climbing the retention wall outside our Ngee Ann gate. I say finally because I tried to walk across the retention once, but give up half way and climb over the barrier. Few day ago, Vincent and Liqiang went back to school with me to do project on a weekend and while walking to bukit timah market, we discussed about the retention wall that we are studying for geotech. Then we saw the retenting wall outside. I realize that the wall starts at a very low level slowly rise up and then down again. I suggested that we walk on the outside ledge of the wall as it is quite spacial. We all thought that it was chicken feet.. Initial was easy and everyone was laughing away at the stupid idea that I suggested. Slowly on the way up, my hand unintentionally reach onto the fences trying to guide myself. So in case I lost my balance I can grab onto it. Although that's quite possible as the ledge was actually qui
I copied this story and wish to share with everyone: My mom only had one eye. I hated her... she was such an embarrassment. My mom ran a small shop at a flea market. She collected little weeds and such to sell... anything for the money we needed she was such an embarrassment. There was this one day during elementary school. I remember that it was field day, and my mom came. I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me? I threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school..."Your mom only has one eye?!" and they taunted me. I wished that my mom would just disappear from this world so I said to my mom, "Mom, why don't you have the other eye?! You're only going to make me a laughingstock. Why don't you just die?" My mom did not respond. I guess I felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to think that I had said what I'd wanted to say all this time. Maybe it was because my mom hadn't punished me, but I didn't thin

"Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know" If life is like a box of "Hello Panda", I really never know... Hello panda is probably the best choc in the whole world. Munching them gave me the surge of euphoria. The other reason for preventing me from overeating them is that the knowledge of chocolate is fatty. But after a detail study of its nutrition facts. I found out that they actually contain negligible amount of saturated fats. With zero concentration of trans fats and cholesterol which was the so call major concern of fat people. Therefore, I quickly picked up two different packing of hello panda from my nearest NTUC. The reason why I choose different packing is that I really doubt that the 'can' package is actually heavier in its net weight compare to the 'convenient' pack. So I decided to investigate into the truth of these 2 different packaging. 10 individal packets: 260g Panda in can : 450g 260g pack looks bigger and weight abo
Wah. Finally I downgraded to window XP liao. Now my speed is super fast, booting into window takes only 30 sec plus no busy reading the hard drive. In the process, I lost quite a number of files as I lasy to back up. And this week end I can't do anything and project have to halt as all the programme are gone. Monday is the earliest I can get all the programme install. Beside I can't do project. I have to spend few hours, doing window updates and driver installation. If I want it to perform better than the old vista, I need to optimize a lot of setting. If not, I might faces a lot of problem in the long run. One typical example is I can't open docx format on the XP system unless I get it patched. A lot of project still not done.. wah I really stressed.
Today I treat my RSP student to Sakae Sushi and spent $60 plus on the total. Sort of regretted sia. I think spending it on my laptop sleeve is a better deal instead. On the way back from tution, mother called me when I am riding. I shouted her because she is too naggy. I was riding with one hand and answering phone on the other. That because why I got agitated. I regretted shouting at her. She was just concerning me that why she so naggy. I must change my attitude towards her liao. A lot of project rushing to be finished before deadline but I am still interested in finishing my drama first. Die liao.. I really shacked a lot after year 1. Hai~

Attended 2 talks that 'supposes' to be enriching and useful to me. They turned out to be other wise. The long marathon for presentation skill were talking stuffs which I already knew when I read self improvement books. Basically after the 4 hours talk, the message conveyed to me was "the only way to conquer stage fright is to keep practicing". Duh.. Does he needs 4 hours to bring across this message? But nevertheless, the speaker has a very interesting character and relate his point with a lot of personal experience and humor. Very captivating and keep think about all the moral of the story. I suggest that one way to counter this, is to wrank it every night, as the blood gashing in will flush all those fatty deposite out of your vessels. The second one is about quitting smoking. I never really scare or motivate me from quitting. But I am working hard on planning how to quit smoking now. Seriously, I am really planning now, trust me. I will be declaring my quit

Today, Limin say she wanna try the "Lychee Martini" ice cream at the clementi arcade's cold storage. So we went there and explore the newly opened store. We are surprise to see that the cold storage was located quite inside towards the canal. Accessibility was quite restricted by the limited public transport. We had to walk like a 10min from the nearest bus stop. The store is super small and nothing to buy inside. And then we went inside the ice cream store to try some of the favor. Most of them contain alcohol. Like the 'rum and raisin', 'lychee martini' and 'xtra stout'. Costing a petite amount like $3 each. Reasonable. This week a lot of project have to go back to school on weekend to finish them up.. Going for 2 talks on Presentation and smoking. Hope to gain something from it..

Actually wanna upload for people to download the photo, but I realized that I disabled right clicking on my blog... (if wanna upload please click on the picture to enlarge first before you right click>save as..) Been busy with my drama so not much of updates. Today happy cause I attended the book prize for the second time. I shall pad myself on the shoulder and say "well done".. I never receive any encouragement from mother. When I broke the news to her, she just acknowledge with an "Orh".. Nothing else. Shouldn't parents be happy when their children do well in studies? Not for my case. Maybe the more hope you have, the more you would get disappointed. I think now my mother haven't had any hope on me already.. She used to nag at me when I fail my test in the past (like let's say 10 years ago) Zzzzzz I hate my school life, I going to choose OIAP and IHP over FYP.. I don't want to stay in school anymore, I wanna escape for these sick school time

Helped out the COI opening event and help to wrap gift and do goodie bags. After so many session we had finally finished. Mr Koh sponsored our dinner. And we gonna order pizza hut. He intended for 25 person with minimum 2 pieces each. End up some of them went home, left the 8 of us. So basically our mission is to finish up the 10 boxes of pizza hut. To make the challenge a more difficult one. 20 pieces of spicy chicken wing was included. We ate to our brim. I even da bao 5 pieces back for my mum and dad.. As a warning to all student studying in NP. See, I believe you may come across this SET right. To rate teacher according to their performance. It was stated that our respond was kept confidential. And I suggest that you better not think so. I personal experience was that I offended my course manager when I gave bad rating to her. She summon me to the office a few times. I didn't turn up lah. I think she is super angry with me. And maybe IAP interview I gonna see her again. Maybe
