Cheap D-Link Pen Drives

Recently, a PC fair was held by Pikom or something (nvm i'm not good at names).

Almost everything there was cheap, some were too cheap to be true. Some were not. You'd ask what's the problem with that. Well, actually there's no problem with cheap comp equipments.

But then, what troubles me is the cheap pen drives they are selling.

1GB = < RM 60
2GB = < RM 120 (if you do know how to bargain)

Again, you might ask what is the problem with cheap pen drives. Well, did you ever wonder why your pendrive bought from the PC fair isn't functioning?

That's because...........

You've been CONNED!
Introducing the usb-cable-with-short-wire-in-a-plastic-casing-pendrive.

Salesman: "Would you like to have a look at our pendrives? These are cheap and affordable.
(insert name here) the fool : "Yes please, I'll take (insert number here) of pendrives.
Salesman: "Since you bought (insert number here), I'll give you a discount!"
(insert name here) the fool : :)
Salesman (thinks to self) : "Another one" :)

Salesman: "Have a nice day, bye bye."

The Olympic Games

Everyone should be familiar with the Olympic games. But those games were the same all the time. Eventually, everyone might get bored over it. Because of that, some genius enhanced the Olympic games to make it more exciting.

Below are some pictures I received from an email. Maybe some of you saw these before but what about those who had not seen it yet? Everyone should be given a chance to see them.

Enjoy :)

Firstly, fencing. How does it feel when you fence at great heights?

Fear of heights? No problem! Allow me to introduce the 2nd method of fencing...

Secondly, fencing again... This IS definitely the best choice for the youngsters who never had the chance to hold a chainsaw.

The amount of casualties must be staggering...

Thirdly, Diving. You are to perform as many spins or whatever dance u know before falling into the pool with the most gentle splash.

Able to aim for the pool?

Next, Ski-Hunting. Suitable for hunters who could not bear to harm an animal...

Dwarven sniper: "FIRE!" *Bang! bang! *

After that, sky-aerobics. "Flipping and twisting around is nothing to me, I need something more exciting!"

"On second thought, this is too dangerous!" - Too late.

Followed by, Sprinting. You know, to be the best runner, there is a heavy price to pay, not a matter of money but a matter of life and death. Presenting the amazing runner!

RUNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!! Did you see his enthusiasm or his desperation?

Next stop, dynamite-tag-relay. Instead of using batons, we use dynamites! Time waits for no one. Runner to the next runner: "Here, take this "baton" and run! All the best to you, if you do not make it, remember that I will always love you!" (not homosexual thank you)

Fellow runner: "Why must I be the next one to hold this "baton" ?" (T_T)

Next stop, high jump. (or is it?) Being confident is a must, but those barbed wires shattered my confidence...

*Prays hard not to fall unto those "welcoming hands" of the barbed wires.*

Finally, long jump from hell. You could see the fear and anxiety from the athlete's face.

"I must make it no matter what... NOOOOOO!"

Goodbye to my teenage years. Too bad that is not the end of the story, I'm officially an adult now I guess?

Nobody cares! I'm still myself.

Thanks to everyone for wishing me Happy Birthday. I really appreciate it very much! ^^

I apologize for the inconvinience

Wow @ Blackboard

In case you wonder what I mean by blackboard, it is a site for Swinburne students to download their notes/tutorials/assignments and print them. Notes are rarely provided by the lecturer at this stage.
After my 1 hour class ended, I went to the blackboard to check for notes or anything to download and print those out. What surprised me was this:

I'm taking 9 subjects this semester! :S

If you love someone...

I felt that sometimes I have to control my own words, especially when I'm talking to a girl. I was lucky I didn't screw things up, if not, I would never forgive myself for doing so.

Scrolled through my e-mails and found this, yes this is a 2 years old mail, but it still have its humor values.

Here it is; I was laughing all the way...


The New Versions…

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she ever comes back, she's yours,
If she doesn't, as expected, she never was.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she ever comes back, she's yours,
If she doesn't, here's the poison, suicide yourself for her.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
Don't worry, she will come back.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she ever comes back,
Ask her why.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she doesn't come back within some time,
Forget her.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she doesn't come back,
Continue to wait until she comes back…

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she comes back, and if you still love her,
Set her free again.

C++ Programmer:
if(m_she == NULL)
m_she= new CShe;

Animal-Rights Activist:
If you love someone,
Set her free…
In fact, all living creatures deserve to be free!!

If you love someone,
Set her free…
Cause the Paragraph 13a-1 in the second amendment of the Matrimonial Freedom Act clearly states that…

Bill Gates:
If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she comes back, I think we can charge her for re-installation fees but tell her that
She’s also going to get an upgrade.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
She'll evolve.

R>If you love someone,
Set her free…
If! She loves you, the probability of her coming back is high.
If she doesn't, the Weibull distribution and your relation was improbable anyway.

Schwarzenegger's fans:
If you love someone,
Set her free…

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she ever comes back, deal!
If she doesn't, so what! "NEXT".

Insurance agent:
If you love someone,
Show her the plan…
If she ever comes back, sign her up,
If she doesn't, keep following up with her and never give up!

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she ever comes back, it's the law of gravity,
If she doesn't, either there's friction higher than the force or the angle of collision between two objects did not synchronize at the right angle.

If you love someone,
Set her free…
If she ever comes back, 1 + 1 = 2 (peanut!),
If she doesn't, Y = 2X - log (0.46Y^2 + (cos (52/34X)) x 5Y^ (-0.5) c) where c is the infinite constant of no turning point.

Nowadays' style:
If You Love Someone,
Set it free…
If It Comes Back, It is Yours.
If It Doesn't, Hunt Down and Kill It...!!!

Till I see this, the final line of that e-mail.


5th August, Saturday

I received a call today from Jeffrey at 2pm, asking me if I am free to go out. Yes was my immediate reply. But I misunderstood what he meant as I thought he meant going to the ‘Kuching Festival’ at this hour. Met up with Jin Thad, You Foo, Li Wei, Edmund, Francis and Alvin at the ‘HQ’. Jeffrey and Jin Thad played the pokemon trading card while waiting for the rest to get ready. Then we split into 2 groups. Jin Thad, Jeffrey, You Foo and me in a group and the others in another group. We went to pick Kelvin up from the hair salon on the way while the other group went to the cinema to get the tickets for us.
We watched:
I missed the front part :( because I was smsing with her since the time Jeffrey came to fetch me. AND because of that, Jin Thad teased me and said “in the car, our handphones did not even make a single sound while yours kept beeping non-stop.” I became wordless but managed to say "my handphone doesn't beep as often as yours leh." After the movie ended, we went to the food fair at around 5.30pm.
(there might be some error in direct translation from mandarin to english)

Searching for seats became our first priority and it wasn’t long before we found one. We met Johnson and Soon Ping at the food fair too; Johnson came with his friends while Soon Ping came with his family. During the evening, our group took turns to get the food we wanted while a few stayed behind to reserve the seats. After everyone filled their stomachs, our group was separated into groups of twos and threes, taking a walk in the garden, eyeing for ‘leng lui’ and so on. I was told that there will be fireworks at 9pm but was disappointed after the clock struck 9.30pm. In the end, we left the food fair and head back to the ‘HQ’ and had a casual chat till 10.

Again I express my thanks to Jeffrey for becoming our driver for today. My head is empty right now, can’t seem to find the missing parts.

4th August, Friday

I’ve just realized that I was MIA for quite some time; actually I wanted to blog after I had my EMA assessment on Friday but it was cancelled. So… oh well, let it be then. SP, Robert, Jeffrey, Kelvin, and Claire were also invited by our lecturer, Miss Melinda. It was a sort-of-cell-group gathering, dinner and sharing included. The food was perfect but sad to say that I am not able to eat much for some reasons which I do not know either. I just felt uneasy on the way they prayed, its not that I dislike it but… it’s just weird to me. Well, unique is the most suitable word to describe them. The part where they shared the good news to us students was interesting. I saw that many were doing their own stuff while the sharing goes on, well, it’s understood, as it was the first time for most of my friends to attend a gathering like this.
After the dinner, Jeffrey took me and Kelvin to the food fair. We surveyed the stalls and bought some lok-lok and drinks. Met with a few old friends along the way, and they bought pizza! Argh, how I wished my stomach will just expand so I could eat more food. We left around 11.30pm after bidding farewell to our friends, reached home at around 11.45pm.
For some reasons, tiredness had not overtook me yet... so I login Bs3 to look for my clanmates for a game of dota. After i was informed that there wasn't any slot left, i joined a random public game and the game commenced. Fatal error message took the place of the scoreboard after winning the first game. I must admit that my skills are kinda rusty now. Nevertheless, I login again and joined another public game of dota. After winning the second game, I proceeded to the scoreboard, again, the fatal error message appeared to me again. Maybe that was God's message to me, "No more DotA for you WeiLiang, thats enough for you today."
How long had it been since I last tasted medicine? I had medicine after dinner, even though it has the flavor of cherry, I don’t like it too. Not that I am scared of medicine but because I never took medicine no matter how worse my condition was. I told myself that medicine will only help to relieve your illness but with the price of your own body’s immune system.

Fever, running nose, headache, sore throat and cough visited me at the same time. So I had no choice but to take medicine because I was coughing non-stop since afternoon. Even my chest and stomach felt the pain when I cough, sigh.

Need to start writing journals for AW class and prepare a suitable topic for RSaRW class. Assignments never stop coming. Once you completed an assignment, another will be waiting for you.

Was sick for 4 days (Monday till Thursday), at least i feel better now.
