Merry 2012!

So..have a merry 2012 tomorrow or tonight, depends on how you celebrate it. 
Let's not ponder what 2011 has been for most of us, instead let us look to the future and hope for something better.

Also, since most of us, have a new year's resolution, I would like to list a few of my own
  1. lose weight, at least until I could wear L size shirt..hahaha
  2. get a house
  3. get a car
  4. get a much larger salary..hehe
  5. get a girlfriend(s) to share all this..yes, plural..
  6. be a better co-worker and friends
  7. be a better son
  8. be a much more sadistic big brother..hahahaha
  9. have a lot more vacation(s)
  10. get married?
So there you go, of course, I probably end up forgetting half of the list. Never mind. What's important is that I have set a goal, at least try to achieve it.

So, here's hoping that you all have a wonderful last few hours of 2011, and have a great all year round of 2012! Drive safe, party safe, and be grateful for everything that you still have, or had and may we are bless with good health and longevity.

HAPPY 2012!

just a recap


How long has it been since I last wrote in here? Seems like ages..hehe

So how are you guys? I hope everyone are picture perfect, if you aren't then smile, and think positive, cause whatever happened, happens for a reason.

So let me recap everything that's been happening so far. 

The last time I wrote about my sisters got 4 As for their UPSR, they are growing up, and are going to secondary school next year. How fast things seems now. Wish them all the best, and hoping for them to be better than their brother here. Preferably a doctor or a pilot, so I can get free medical check up and free flight all around the world, seems realistic enough rite?

So, a week after my post on Uzma's Treasure Hunt + Canopy Walk, I had a great time out with close friends of mine (you know who you are). It's a simple celebration for Aysha's new job, and Seri's birthday. The original plan was to celebrate Biha's birthday too, but she had to canceled due to an unforeseen circumstances. Also, I totally forgot about Fidz's birthday the next day, but I'll make it up to her when she's in KL, YOU BETTER GIVE ME A CALL!

Here are some photos of the day.

Also, the next day, I had a bowling tournament at Berjaya Times Square. SPE KL Tournament (SPE stands for Society of Petroleum Engineering),  is a tournament that is annually held by the society. Usually they held a bowling and a golf tournament, and the prizes was amazing, especially the lucky draw.

Uzma totally loss that bowling tournament, the other companies came with the big gun! Most of them have their own bowling club, which is a lame excuse for a sour loser, but you aren't there, so shut up!

Here are some photos.

Life has been good so far, I have a great job, a great place to work, and best of all a lot of great people to bully!
So until next time.

Treasure treasure

Hello world,

First of all, for those that didn't heard, my twin sisters got 4A's for their UPSR. So my parents decided to get them a present. Now the the plan was for them to get my iPhone if they got 3A's, but since they got 4A's all they want is an iPad or a new phone..which is absolutely out of the question! What? Even I didn't get something that cool..hehehe

So while my parents think about what to get them, I try to be a good brother, and get them a present. Now a good brother NOT only bully their lil sisters or brothers, but also not cheap when we need to be. So, I found a great present to give them. I got them a wrist watch, wait a minute, it's not a normal wrist watch, it's an LED wrist watch! What they do is that they don't use a normal hour, minute and second hand. Wait..let me just show you.

The 2 watches
See the LED light?
So back to my parents. My father search ups and lows to get them a new phone, a smartphone, but not that expensive. So my dad found this new Samsung phone, it's a smartphone, but it does not run on an Android OS. It's call Samsung Corby 2. 

Here are some pics. 

They have all you need for a basic phone. But with the capability of a smartphone. You may heard about Samsung Galaxy Y, a much more cheaper version of the Galaxy family. But price wise, Galaxy Y is about RM500, while Corby 2 is around RM200.

For more info on Corby 2, just go to the link here.

Well, that is..later.

Uzma's Treasure Hunt + Canopy Walk

How do you do?

Yesterday, my company, decided to have a treasure hunt at FRIM, Kepong. I was reluctant to go, because..well just because. 

But after being "politely" asked by the HR dept, I went anyway. So the plan was to have a treasure hunt, and then up to the canopy walk. The treasure hunt was suppose to be a 1 hour game, but since we started late, it was cut short to 30 minutes, which require us to run around searching for answers. This make us, very very tired to go up the canopy walk. For your info, the canopy walk is up to 1 km above the hill from the visitor centre and the slope is about 45 degrees.

So the treasure hunt was pretty easy, my team won by the way! YEAH! So, all we have to do is run around searching for the floras and faunas, name them and pick up some leaves.

Immediately after the treasure hunt, we are up to the canopy walk, with little time to wait, if we want to get down by lunch time. The hike took about 1 and half hour, for 1 km up the hill. The worst part about the canopy walk is the hiking itself, since the hill slope is about 45 degrees, so you really have to force yourself up there, I suggest you don't overexerted yourself before you hike up, and bring very light items with you. But once you got up to the canopy walk, it was really breathtaking. 

Here are few photos from yesterday event.

I think the FRIM Rep said, we are about 50-70m above ground.

  So that's it, yesterday was a great day, tiring, but a great day nonetheless.

work place

So, as is my office, it's kinda dull..there's not much to tell. The office looks deserted because most of the staffs are doing their work at the client's office, and also cause it's during lunch time. If you want to see larger size, please click on the picture.

New show, New Girl

Hey there..
Just want to share a new show, I think it's airing right now on Star World. New Girl is the show, starring Zooey Deschannel. It's about a girl that move out from her apartment after finding out that her boyfriend is cheating on her. So she seek out a new place to stay, and end up with an apartment with 3 guys after mistook thinking the ad was written by a woman seeking a new roommate, so that's how it all started. The guys can't stand her crazy and awkward behaviour, but in spite of all the quirk, they rally to bond and become like a family.

Some critics said this might be the next big comedy, I doubt that. It's still too early to said how this show is going, it just aired up to 6 episodes in the US, so it's a long way to go before we could call it the next big anything.

However, the show is kinda good. So far the show has some great punchline and crazy acting. I think because of Zooey Deschannel eccentric behaviour, this show has found a solid ground to hold onto. Also, the smooth acting, the well written episode, and great chemistry between them in this show making it one of my favourite show to watch each week.

The other main reason, beside watching the eccentric Zooey Deschanel, is watching her best friend on the show, Cece. Played by the beautiful and steaming hot Hannah Simone.  I think, if the show kept getting good reviews, she most definitely be one of world's top 100 sexiest woman alive.
The hot Hannah Simone
You can read more about her on Google, or go to her Facebook Page or click this link for sexy FHM photo shot. She's definitely on my radar for the next year, let's hope more sexy photo shoots surface

So there you go, you could watch this on Star World and let me know what you think about it, but here's a promo trailer for you guys. Later.

Galaxy Note do you want it?

So it's been a while..let's talk Android..hehe

I think everybody already heard and read about the new Galaxy Note. Most of you already feel sick about how people talk about it..a lot! But let your stomach swallow a little bit more of this...

So what is Galaxy Note? Galaxy Note is the next Samsung's line of Galaxy Family. For those that still remember Galaxy S2 (has it been that long?) Galaxy Note put all the best of S2 into it. 

Comparison of Note from other Android's phones and iPhone
Here's the low down of the phone, it has a huge..and I mean..HUGE 5.3 inch screen! S2 screen is already a big 4.3 inch, 5.3 inch is a little bit smaller than a 8.9 Galaxy Tab. But, I don't think Samsung gonna stop there, don't be surprise if they gonna release a bigger phone. Also, with Super Amoled HD, the screen is crystal clear, some said, the best smartphone screen out there. For those that hate technical terms, a Super Amoled HD can only be found with Galaxy Tab 10.1 Plus, so you have to expect a very crystal clear screen and with thickness close to S2, who wouldn't be tempted right?

Comparison between Note and S2
So if you finding a gap between a phone and a tab, Note is obviously your choice. Although with larger phone, and heavier too, you have to wonder how does it fair with other Galaxy's family. The main concern is not the software, but the size. You have to wonder how it look like when you holding something this huge to make a phone call, how unsightly it might look. Also, with a heavier phone, you might feel uncomfortable having it inside your pocket

Note come with a stylus, dubbed the S Pen, and don't call it a stylus, Samsung prefer them to be call the S Pen. The S Pen is a great substitute for your finger, it can basically do whatever your finger can do, writing, drawing, taking picture. A great addition if you love to write, and drawing.

The major different of Note, is that it's front camera of 2 mega pixels. The S2 front camera is a mere 1.3 mega pixels, so with a 2 mega pixels camera, it's a better quality camera for those that love to have a video call. 

Alright, enough all this technical specs and all, you can read more of it in this link.

Now, you need someone to tell if this is the right phone for you. You need to ask yourself, what do you look for in a phone? If you searching for an all rounded phone, that is not too big for you, I still recommend S2, or wait for the next Galaxy Nexus that come with the new Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwhich. If you love to read, and play with your tablet, but want something smaller, than Note might be the right one for you.

Remember that newer phone come out every time, so choose wisely.

Aidiladha 2011's food search

Aidiladha come and go, this year was nothing extraordinary. Although..our local mosque had to kosher 14 cows! 14! That had to be a record for the mosque. If you think about it, to kosher and fully cut all the meat for a single cow took about an hour, so 14 cows, if you only had 1 group of people for one cow, that's a total of 14 hours! On the bright side, more people gets the meat.

So how was your holiday? I was thinking to spend the long weekend in KL, but last minute plan changes it. I had to follow my parents to Kuantan, visiting my little bro studying there. The plan was to depart on Saturday, but after careful planning, it will be suicide to travel on Saturday, so we decided to head there on Sunday, and return on Monday.

The whole 2 days was fill with nothing but searching for great foods. Of course, on Sunday we didn't expect any good eating place to be open, since it's a holiday. But my dad remembered a steak house, called the East Grill Steak House, that rumour has it, the Pahang's Sultan once dine there. Since it's open, why not try it.

The restaurant is small in term of spaces, only a few available tables, if you come in late, you have to wait for a table. Another problem is the reservation table, although it's good to have reservation, but the restaurant really need to set some time time for the reserved patron to be there. Because even after 9pm, the reserved table still empty, and people are still coming in.

In term of the food, it is what you expect of a steak house. There are lamb, chicken, meat and fish, however, you can choose to have the Teriyaki Steak, or choose between the red snapper or salmon for the fish. You can't choose the side dish, which for me is a let down, because not everybody eat the coleslaw, or the corn. You can also choose a list from the chef's favourite, and another specialty from the restaurant is their homemade sauce, which include, black pepper sauce, BBQ sauce and mushroom sauce. The black pepper sauce is pretty much like its' name, too much black pepper, and too little of everything.

The price are pretty much in range of between 30-70 per person (including water), pretty decent if you decide to eat there once a month. But beware, for those with large appetite, this may not be a good place, unless of course, if you ordered the Mixed Barbeque, which include everything plus a jumbo size sausage.

That's for Sunday menu, on Monday, when we decided to return home, we must first find a place to have lunch, I don't why the first thought come to my dad's mind was Berserah's beach. It's a good thing too, because we had the opportunity to taste a famous place in Kuantan, call the Pak Su's Seafood. 

My dad said, if you ever in Kuantan, you should really try this place. It is a seafood place, so don't expect anything crazy from this review. Of course you can expect the usual from a seafood place, however, it is their way of cooking them that is what we are looking for.

We ordered Fish cooked with asam, deep fried squid and western style prawn (basically butter prawn), and seafood tom yam, with mix vegetables. We also ordered the specialty, stuff crab, crab's meat mix with vegetables and flour, (not worth it). The fish was a let down, since the Asam overpower everything, you can't  taste much of anything else. The best dish has to be the prawn, worth the money spend. 

I can tell you everything you need to know, although I doubt you didn't know already how Asam or butter prawn taste like. The most important thing when going to a new dining place, is the taste of the food, and the money spend on it, is it worth it? It's a lil it expensive for my taste, RM150 for everything. The most worth thing eating was the prawn, Don't buy the stuff crab, RM7 for a crab so not worth it. The fish was also a let down, we should try the fish cook with ginger instead.

The drinks were expensive, and in small glass, so ordered a large jug and don't order any fruits drink, RM3 for a small glass, that has to be highway robbery.

 So there you go, if you decided to try those places, why not tell me about it. Talk to you later. Adios.

daily dose

Alright, I won't write a lot of things here, I just want to share some of the new TV series I am currently watching.

So, first of all, have you heard of The Big Bang Theory? It's an AWESOME show! It is currently on its 5th season in the US, I just started on its 2nd season, a long way to go, but totally worth it. Created by Chuck Lorre, the same guy that created 2 and A Half Man, so you know this is good. The show portraits a bunch of geek+nerdy+smart+intelligence guys with no social experience whatsoever especially with hot girls. One day, a new hot young girl become their neighbour, and this changes the dynamic of the team. This usually come with hilarious result. The show throws a lot of big words that only few people understand, but this is what makes the show hilarious. So have it a go.

Second TV shows, is the Secret Circle, sounds cliche right? That because it is. It's another story from CW, the same network that created The Vampire Diaries and brings you Supernatural. Basically, the shows about a bunch of teenage witches. Yes witches. It's call the Secret Circle because they bound themselves to a circle of power, or something, that makes their individual power gone, but gain a whole power as a group (sounds like a bad bargain right?). The whole show so far clouded with a lot of questions, just started airing last September, it still has a long way to go. The show focus more on the history and mystery that happens to the teenagers' parents when they were their age. Although bound by the circle makes them vulnerable as an individual, they can still cast spell when they in a group. Which, to my surprise makes for a good storyline. If you watch it and like it, then maybe there's hope yet for this one.
Another show, I'm currently watching is, Person of Interest. I am having a mix view on this one. It is about a guy that created a software that allows the government to assess threat from everyone, and I mean..EVERYONE..However, the software can't differentiate from a small threat to a big threat. The guy eventually work it out, that the small threat be remove after a day, however, after a while he realize that the small threat involve ordinary people that involve with unfortunate incident. He make up his mind, to find out what makes this small threat, a threat in the first place, by hiring an ex-special military personnel, to investigate the threat. The show so far has increase it pace, but I can't see how this thing could go any further, but it's still too early to tell.

Once Upon A Time, sounds like a beginning sentences from a fairy tale cartoon. However, it is a show that just aired last week in the US. The show fuse the beautiful and happily ever after fairy tale and the harsh and cold reality of the real world. It is about Snow White and her crazy step mother that put a curse that plunge all your fairy tale's character to the real world. The kicker is, none of them remember that they are fairy tale characters except for the evil step mother and one boy, who has this magical book that told story of the fairy tale. For the first episode, it looks kinda cool, the acting was good, the effect was superb, but the story is a bit slow. Let see where this show will go.

Last of all, American Horror Story. Let me tell you something, the story is KINDA scary. Don't let me ruin your fun ok? The show is about a family that move to a haunted house, with a LOT of very dark and bad memory in it. It seems that everyone or anything that ever live here, died, either by natural causes or killed by something. There are ghosts and scary scene, but none of them can compare to the boring drama that involve between the broken family. You could skip the scene though if you don't like, that's what I do anyway. But, the show did get great review from the US. It is still fun to watch though, just don't go and watch it alone tonight.

So there you go. If you feel like a change in your daily dose of TV show, why not try one of this? Til next time.

Must know

So here's another post of the week.

It was a crazy month for me. Too much work to be done, I barely had time to breath. I will take time to post my work place in a few days, it's a boring place to work, the colour is gloom, dull and it make you sleepy all the time. No wonder work never got done there..hahaha. But for now, let us focus on something else.

So, there are a lot of things going down with the world, but, I know you guys are busy and don't want to read the whole stuffs, so let me list out some of the things you MUST know by now
  • Lindsay Lohan going to pose nude on Playboy, this is because a source claim she is going broke.
  • Samsung just pass iPhone to be the top smart phone seller in the world.
  • Android 4.0 is just around the corner
  • What you think about government overspend 3.7 billion of last year budget allocation? Your money people
  • Inflation nowadays peak at about 6%, but wage increment is only 3%, we are getting poorer.
  • Steve Jobs memorial was release in US last Monday, will be in Malaysia by next year.
  • In Steve Jobs' book, he said, he would use all Apple's money to bring Google's Android down! Because he claim Android stole the tech, well..more like they stole the idea..hehe
  • Piala Malaysia Final between Terengganu and N.Sembilan
  • Masterchef Malaysia has started, what do you think about it? I think it is a boring show so far, I blame the judges.
  • Thailand's flood is getting worse, with the surge water is going to submerge the city of Bangkok for a month.
So there you go, what else is going on in the world? Oh yeah..there's a lot of buzz on the new The Avengers movie, have you watch the trailer? It doesn't give us much to work on, but it's still satisfying. How bout Mission Impossible 4 that is coming out this December? Would you watch another sequel to the Mission Impossible franchise?

Paranormal 3, hold 2 weeks at No.1. For those that never saw Paranormal Activity, your loss. Go and watch it from the beginning, then you understand the 3rd installment of this most successful horror franchise. The first movie was made with 200,000 USD I believe, and rake about 80mil USD, now that's a good investment. 

Til next time. Adieu

October 22, 2011

still another post about Android

It's been a while since I drop in here.

First thing first, have you got your brand new iPhone 4S yet? No...well you in luck, it'll be coming to Singapore by the end of this year, no news yet on when will it be coming to Malaysia, and if you can't wait, go down south and get yourself a brand new iPhone 4S. 

One thing that caught everybody attention in iPhone 4S is the new assistant Siri. If you haven't had the chance to witness it, go to YouTube and search it. If however, you wanted to see the Siri meme, just go here and here, you would laugh your ass off.

Some of you might not know this, but iPhone 4S sold for more than 4 millions after it's launch and pre-sale orders. Which is way more than iPhone 4. Some people says this is mainly due to the fact that iPhone 4S is post Steve Jobs, which worth something more. I don't know, I have no comment on this.

So, since I'm an Android user now, I have been following all things Android, there are a lot of stuffs to read just to understand the fundamental of the OS. I have been surfing the web and asking around, and believe me, it is as hard and complicated as Apple iOS, maybe harder. So, if you are thinking of buying an Android phone, make sure you are prepare for a brand new world.

But enough about that. Last week, Samsung unveil a new phone with a new Android OS. Presenting the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Made from Google's own brand, Nexus, the brand is now incorporated into Samsung. Although, Google's logo can be seen at the back of the phone. The phone runs on the new Android 4.0 OS, the Ice Cream Sandwhich (yes that is the OS name). 
Some might get confuse, when you see an Android's phone now, the latest firmware is 2.3, Gingerbread, what happens to 3.0? Well 3.0 is Honeycomb which runs only on Android's Tablet. So Ice Cream Sandwhich will be put into both the phone and the tablet, so your phone will have features that was previously only on Android's tablet.

Galaxy Nexus itself is a modest phone, running only on 1.2 GHz processor, with only 1GB of ram, and only a 5 megapixel camera. The screen however is 4.7 inch! That is larger than Galaxy S2 (4.3 inch) Do not worry about the phone size, it is more or less the same as Galaxy S2, only the screen gets bigger.
Currently only Galaxy Nexus is running on Android 4.0, but the upgrade will be available to all Android's user by the end of the year, or early next year. I won't go into detail about Android 4.0, you can get that from Google. But the OS looks sweet! Can't wait for the update.

My recommendation? If the price of Galaxy S2 is lower than Galaxy Nexus, go get the S2, however, for those that don't care about the price, try out Galaxy Nexus, and tell me what you think. Will be a long time though before it debut here.

For more info on Galaxy Nexus, go here. For more info on Android 4.0, go here.

That's it for now. Adios

October 9, 2011

first review on Samsung Galaxy S2

For more than 3 years, I was an Apple user..but yesterday I was a proud user of Android OS.

I bought Samsung Galaxy S2 yesterday. I didn't really plan to buy the phone until last week, when Apple failed to announced the new iPhone 5, but instead release an iPhone 4S. I can't bear to wait another year, for iPhone 5, so I decided to give Android a try.

But I am not an Apple hater, I've been using them for 3 years. Maybe it is time to try something else and totally new. So here is my own review about Samsung Galaxy S2, which you can look up on Google or go to for more info.

For those that hates going through all the lengthy specs of a phone, here's a summarize version for Galaxy S2.  I will also compare them to iPhone 4 and 4S.

Galaxy S2 has 4.3 inch of screen, bigger than iPhone 4 and 4S (3.5inch). I know some of you would go "why we need so big of a screen?!" You are right, we can just zoom in to read or search something. However, a bigger screen means a wider vision when we go through email, or internet, so we don't have to scroll that much to read them. Plus, the awesome look when you played games in a bigger screen is not a bad thing.

Galaxy S2 also uses Super Amoled screen. Where it looks incredible! I'm not being bias or anything, you can look it up on Google about Super Amoled. What it does, is that when you're outside on a scorching hot day, you're screen won't have that glare, where you can't view the phone's screen, due to the bright sun. Super Amoled won't have that problem, it works superb on low light, and even better on bright day. Now, as far as I know, only Samsung has this kind of technology, but I think some of them will catch up eventually.

One of worse part of iPhone for me, is the inability to change the memory space. With Galaxy S2, you get 16Gb of internal memory, but if you want, you can add your own SD memory card. Just think about when buying iPhone, where the price vary according to the space its providing.

iPhone 4S and Galaxy S2 both has 8MP of camera, however, only 5MP for iPhone 4. Some of you won't mind having 5MP, I don't too, since 5MP is a essential enough to take great photos. But if you're a photographing junkies, you might one the 8MP camera, just because. Both Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4S take 1080p HD video, but iPhone 4 still takes 720p HD video. You can fully appreciate 1080p HD video, when you played it back on laptop or TV that has HD capability.

The phone has 1.2Ghz of dual-core processor, which is faster than iPhone 4S (1Ghz), however, some said, this is a small trivial matter, since there are NO apps in the world, both on Android's and Apple's platform that can push the processor up to 1 Ghz.

The internal RAM for Galaxy S2 is 1GB, same with iPhone 4S, and 512MB for iPhone 4. RAM is basically the same thing in your laptop or computer, where you need more memory to run more apps, and to run app simultaneously without hiccup. This is great for those of you that love to run several apps at the same time, and makes the phone run smoothly.

Another upset from iPhone is their inability to run Java from their web surfer, mainly the Safari. There are ways to get them running on iPhone, but it's a complicated way, and has the potential of getting the iPhone stuck. I don't get it why they won't allow Java, maybe the developers are a bunch of egoistic pride people.

The USB port on the bottom of the Galaxy S2, act also as a HDMI port, which is convenient if you want to play back your video on HD format. Somethinng iPhone is lacking.
Also, Galaxy S2 uses HSPA+ which is a much better version than HSDPA to surf the net from your mobile carrier, I believe, iPhone still using HSDPA. This gives you about 14mbps of internet surfing, although, this also depends on the availability of the coverage.

Now, here the bad side of using Samsung Galaxy S2, apparently, if you have thousands of contacts on Outlook, you can't sync it with Samsung. This has to be done manually by putting all you contact on Gmail (yes, you have to have a Gmail account), and then sync from Samsung's phone using the Gmail account. This is one of the bullshit you have to endure, since Android (a Google's OS) wants people to have Gmail account. You can Google about it, on the how-to transfer your contact from Outlook to Gmail.
Another weird thing about Android, is when you surf the web, it automatically view the mobile version of the website, with no buttons to change to normal view. There is a long complicated way to change it though, but it revert to default once you out of the internet. Another way to handle this is by using another websurfer, like Firefox.

Another issue (that I yet to encounter) is the battery life. I've read about it countless times that Galaxy S2, has a battery life problems. I can't know for sure, but from what I read is that the battery life drain faster when you start downloading widget or apps that runs on the background, which means the apps is constantly running. I have to get back on you with this. 

So there you go, I have yet to master the way of the Android. I will keep posting for different pros and cons of the Galaxy S2. 

In the meantime, if you're thinking of buying an Android's phone, I suggest the Galaxy S Plus, it has almost the same specs as Galaxy S2, with different in RAM (512MB) and Processor (1.4Ghz). Also, they only come with 8GB of internal memory, but you can add your own SD card to boost the memory. They came with 5MP camera with 720p HD video, but they are newer than Galaxy S2.

The best part of Galaxy S Plus is its price, around RM1300..way way cheaper than Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4 now. With luck, you could probably get it for RM1200.

Good luck in finding your new phone.

the same OLD iPhone 4S

The hype is over, there is NO iPhone 5!

The 4th Oct announcement of Apple that everybody is talking about is apparently about the release of the new iPhone 4S. This is expected, since there are no official leaked photos of new iPhone being developed or mass produce, unlike iPhone 4 before.

So, if you want to know more about iPhone 4S, just go to Gizmodo, where you can learn more, or better yet, Google them.

Here's the quick version of the new iPhone family. 

  • Same design
  • Different processor, using A5 processor with dual core about 1Ghz of power
  • Increase RAM memory
  • 8MP camera.
  • using iOS 5
  • AI-kinda software nicknamed Siri
  • Claim to be 7 times faster than iPhone 4
  • Faster internet use, using 4G HSPA+
  • New HD video
  • New backlight, which they claim can get iPhone 4S 73% more light
I am getting fed up with this wait on iPhone 5, for me, iPhone 4S is boring, since most of Android's phone are already using the above specs. So it's up to you if you want to buy the new iPhone 4S or wait for another year for an iPhone 5.

Sister's 12th birthday

So, on 27th last month was the twins' 12th birthday, normally we would buy birthday cake and celebrate at home, but since it's their last birthday with her primary school's friends, my mom decided to brought the cakes to the school, so they could celebrate with their friends.

The date come and go, however, I did promise them a present if I got a job, sadly, I did, I decided to bring them for a movie and lunch in Pavilion, and also to look for their toys.

Why Pavilion you ask? I only decided to went there because I want them to taste Carl's Jr. It was never my intention to buy their toys there, because they haven't had any good toys store for the kids, the only toy store is in Parkson, and it was just a small corner at the back of the store. So, if you want to buy toys for your kids, please don't go to Pavilion.

So, we decided to catch Johnny English Reborn, and ate lunch at Carl's Jr. Oh yes, for those that haven't seen or want to watch Johnny English, I highly recommend you watch it with your families. I don't think you want to watch it with your friends, because the movie might be kinda dull for you. It is funny, at least some part of the movie is. Bare in mind that this is not a Oscar winning movie, it is a simple, funny and a good movie to laugh together with your family.

So after lunch, we set out to find their toys. Like I said, there is no good toys store in Pavilion, we took a round inside Tokyo Street, went into Parkson, and still can't seem to find a good store. So we decided to go to KLCC and went to Toys 'r' Us (they change location, in case you don't know) 

I told them, each of them had a max limit of RM100 per toys, so they could pick either one toy of RM100, or several toys amount up to RM100. We bought nerf gun (after brainwashing them, so I could also play along) hehe..and several other toys.

It was a tiresome day, and that is all..adieu.
