Apple's Oct 4th annoucement


I have great news for those Apple enthusiast. Some of you might be following this, some of you might even heard this the first time. iPhone 5, the newest of the iPhone family is getting near on its unveiling.

Apple's new CEO, Tim Cook released a statement that an announcement is going to be made on Oct 4, 2011, of a possible new device. Some would agree that it is the holy announcement of the new iPhone 5, but let us not forget that Apple also produce the iPod, iPad and not to mention, the possibility of an iPhone 4Gs.

If the news of the release of the new iPhone 5 on Oct 4 is true, than we can see the new iPhone role out to meet the buyer in few weeks time. Which is also a good news in Malaysia, since the CEO of Maxis is talking closely with Apple to make the iPhone 5 available in Malaysia by end of Oct or early Nov.

There are still many speculations and rumours going around regarding the important date of Oct 4, but here are some facts.

Fact number 1, if the announcement of iPhone 5 is true, Apple will sell iPhone 3G, 3Gs, and iPhone 4 at lower price. There are also introducing new iPhone 4 with 8GB memory, that will have cheaper price, that targets the mid class individual so that they too can afford a cheap iPhone (this is done to counter the abundant of Android's phone that is readily made for the mid class)

Fact number 2, with the release of iPhone 5, the battle with Android is going to intensify, which is a good thing for consumer like us, because we are going to be attack by a barrage of new devices with crazy ideas and soo many choices.

So, there you go, I have no official pics of the phone, if you are eager to search for the leaked photos, just Google it ok?

pray for me

Assalammualaikum everyone, it's been a while since my last post. So how's Raya for everyone? May you have many many open houses to go, and prepare yourself, for a world of stomach ache..hehehe

So, before I'm going to tell all the new details of my jobs, let us recap of what's happening in the world around us. I'll be brief, I promise.

Did you heard about the new Windows 8? Yeah!! If you haven't seen the video or the news, go Google it, it looks amazing. You can even download the build version (BEWARE though, this is a very unstable platform, if you want to install it, use an old seldom use computer to avoid unnecessary complication.) The new Windows 8 is so revolutionize, it might take some time to get use to it. It has all this apps, that usually made for phones, but were incorporated into the PC platform. I'm talking gibberish now, hehe. To make things easier, just Google, or go to YouTube for more info.

Other than tech stuffs, there are thing going around the world that is just to damn depressing and sad to write about here, I'm sure you guys been keeping tap on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in the US. The crazy revolution in Libya, Syria. Don't get me started on the current affairs in our own backyard.

However, the good news of the day, is the leaked naked photos of one Scarlett Johansson, have you guys seen it? There was only 2 of them, but it was pretty decent pics. The photos were allegedly hacked from her phone, by a group of people. The FBI reportedly is closing in on one of the suspects, so lets hope he/she leak out more of the celeb's pics before the FBI busted them, hehe

So, back to me, my life, mainly my working life has been ok so far. Although, I've been working late up til 12 am finishing up all the work in the office, which is pretty crazy if you ask me. This can all be avoided, if it wasn't for our partner in the US and Vietnam that been stalling on emailing us all the details.

I am also preparing myself to do a new work, things that is different from my current job, this is because the person that was assigned to this decided to leave the company, so they chose me, because there aren't many people around they could ask to help fill in the blank (pick the new kid, to do a job that required an experience hand, that's how short handed we are.)

So I am basically back to square one again. The job requires me to learn all the new technical terms by a month time, becoming a liaison for our partner, preparing report, going offshore, and prepare all the business related stuffs all by myself, because apparently I am this "good". Hopefully this job isn't as stressful, but from what I gathered, it wouldn't count on it.

I take this as a challenge. I just hope I could cope within this one month time. I don't want to screw things up, this is a millions dollar project people! It would look bad for the company if I screw things up.

So there you go, let us meet again, if I'm still with the company, in a month time? Pray for me people, pray for me..

Raya 2011

of many many kuih raya we had
How's everyone? Raya's holiday is almost over, I am now currently back home, and preparing to go back to work. So many things to do, so little time.

Raya was fun, simple and tiring, not to mention, it's the time when one lose money faster than one earned, hehehe. The difference between celebrating it in Johor and Kelantan is the feeling of balik kampung. When we get back to Johor, we stayed in the city, which is pretty much says it all. It does not feel like balik kampung, and most of the relatives also stayed in the city, with brick houses, and big gates.

few of many relatives

But it is good to be back in Johor, since I have so many cousins and relatives. It does however sucks when you have to give duit raya to them, since there are a LOT of them! Curse of having a job.But I do get some duit raya, people see me walking around, suddenly giving me duit raya, I don't have the heart to tell them I'm already working...hehe

Another thing Kelantan is different from Johor is the availability of Lemang. It is so hard to find Lemang in Kota Bharu, but in Johor, there are abundant of stalls selling them, you just have to search for the right one. Below is a photo of one many lemang stalls in Johor.

Anyway, Raya is a month long festivities, there are bound to be open houses, so let's enjoy the month while it last, and here's hoping that you will not have stomach ache by the end of the day.
