Once Upon a Time - The Balrog Ship

While organizing the albums found some old memories such as this one, done by one of my buddies. That's Dino, Iku and me on a Balrog Ship. Saw that noob helm on my head? haha.. that's so long ago when i wore that.


The Balrog ship sails between Victoria and Orbis daily on a 20 mins interval. Among all the ships this is the only one that you can't rest on the deck, coz it passes by some Balrog nest I guess and you may bump into one if you are really "lucky". I remembered the day when I finally saved enough for my first trip, happily bought a 1-way ticket and boarded the ship, going to Orbis for the first time! Yeah so excited!! But was soooo lucky that a Balrog flew by while I was AFK. Zzzzz... Got eaten of coz. During those days 80k is a lotsa meso okie! The DKs earn meso the hard way!

Nowadays there are so many alternatives to travel around, I wonder if anyone still take this ship, maybe it's almost a ghost ship now...

iPad



After months of speculation and rumors, it’s official:The Apple iPad is real. The device, announced earlier today by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, is designed to fill the perceived gap between the smartphone and the laptop. [Extract from mashable.com]

Looks like a giant iPhone.


The specs (from mashable.com) :

  • SCREEN: 9.7-inch IPS LCD screen. The LCD provides the backlighting, but most of the technology is IPS, or In-plane switching. This gives it a stronger viewing angle than most screens.
  • RESOLUTION: 1024×768 pixels (132 pixels per inch)
  • SIZE: 0.5 inches thin.
  • DIMENSIONS: 9.5 inches x 7.5 inches x 0.5 inches
  • WEIGHT: 1.5 pounds (1.6 pounds for 3G)
  • CHIP: 1 GHz Apple A4 chip. They went in-house instead of going to Intel.
  • MEMORY: Three models with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB solid state hard drives.
  • INCLUSIONS: Accelerometer, Microphone, 30-pin connector, Compass, full capacitive multi-touch, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11n Wi-Fi, 3G access on higher-end models
  • BATTERY LIFE: 10 hours at full blast. On standby, it will last over a month.
Summary: It’s thin, it’s light and it’s fast.

CONVERSE - Gym Bag

Have been eyeing on a Ferrari Puma Bag, but ended up buying Converse instead. Coz got sales - 20% off.

It's 100% PVC, so it's water proof i guess. The texture as per pic on the right, seems durable, therefore it's also quite heavy. Would be perfect if it has a lighter color interior and a softer and more comfortable grip.

Now I have a bag big enough to carry the bulky DSLR! Not really for gym though.. haha!!!

Btw, they gave me a pack of red packets - being the first I get this year! Yeah!

I miss Kolomee... =D

Darl went back to office yesterday, from 7am i guess, till noon. He called and asked me to take bus to Bedok to meet him for laksa.

"No", I said.
"Ok I chia you a cab ride".
"No".

So he grabbed my kor to lunch with him.
After lunch he called me,"You want me to ta-pao for you?"
"Yes, I want kolomee"
"Can you chia me one mouth?"
*think think.... "Ok"
"Your Kor says he also want one mouth, can?"
*!!!!!! "You one mouth he one mouth, then I eat what?!! Faster come back la! I hungry eh!"

Lucky i get the whole piece intact. =D
So long never eat kolomee liao~

Nuffnang Analytics Report

Signed up with Nuffnang for 3 days, haven't earn any cent yet. However, am quite impressed with their analytics report. It allows you to know the traffic of your blog and the reading patterns of your visitor up to the past one month, presented in both chart and data on figures and sources. Over here, I'll just show you how the charts look like, will not include the data report, ok? Or else will be too lengthy!

This graph shows traffic of your blog for the day, ie. how many unique visitors dropby and at what time of the day.

This graph shows that there are 61 unique visitors on 22 Jan. The data report shows that the total views on 22 Jan is 218.

This chart shows that most of the unique visitors for the past 3 days are from Singapore (54.81%), followed by the U.S. (15.56%), Philippines (8.15%), Malaysia (7.41%) etc. The percentage are provided in the data report.

This graph tells you what your visitors are searching for, these are the keywords they searched that lead them to your blog. It's pretty self explanatory.

This graph tells you who are your referrals, in another words, the visitors come to your blog from which websites. Could be from the search engines or a link from someone else's blog.

Okay, so how do you summarize the report? Hahaha! No need to answer la, this is just for reading pleasure. =P

McD 填补“小猪”玩偶


麦当劳因为循众要求所以决定推出小叮当幸运福星系列中的“猪”玩偶。但事到如今,也未免变得有点多此一举。。。

之前因为缺少一个生肖而放弃收集的顾客,现在同样的也无法收集整套, 因为较早发行的生肖玩偶都已售完。而且“猪”玩偶要等到四月份才开始发行。。。不知道还有多少人会买。

我已经收集了我要的玩偶,这才看到香港的比新加坡的美!

Ebay 有人卖,可是$12 vs $2, mmm.. 还是什么也别买比较好, 省钱省空间。

By the way, 我的叮当团!过年带回家给爸爸妈妈!

Tripod on iPhone


iPhone comes with a camera function that doesn't have any features. I'm not kidding!

I've downloaded almost 3 dozens of photography related applications to try out, and I think Tripod is a great application. Recommended to use if it's getting a bit too dark to focus, it gives you pretty sharp photo that comes with a slight noise as trade off. Well, still better than a blurry photo.

The next thing I'll be shopping for, is a night mode application. Any recommendation?

Other applications that I like : linked.
