FroYo is not as good as ice cream. Might have less fat and calories but its just not AS good on a warm day. This is more of a realization I guess...

Today I was reminded about how nasty some people in the real world can be...  Just nasty, ugly personalities.  Makes me appreciate the LC crowd even more.

Sorry for the double post but just wanted to say the LC crowd is awesome indeed, turns out loners are much nicer and smarter than regular people out there.

I read an article in the newspaper today and found out that majority of people who spend a lot of their time on Facebook are actually better in making friends in real life.

Bamboo mats should be wrapped with plastic wrap on both sides and spread with a little bit mayonnaise to prevent sticky rice, that will make a perfect sushi roll! And singaporean rice has the same characteristic as japanese rice.

I learned how to read libtool archive files (.la files) on UNIX systems. Libtool sucks, but what can you do? Also learned how to fix dependency problems with FreeBSD ports by searching libtool archives.
Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to was never there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. Where is there a place for you to be? No place... Nothing outside you can give you any place... In yourself right now is all the place you've got.

Today I learned that the guy that played Columbo had died.
Was told that Hulk Hogan was dead too, but that was discovered to be a pack of lies

Speaking of deaths, I learned yesterday that the main guitarist for TV on the Radio, a band I really liked, had passed away earlier this month. It just sucks how he can't continue to play.

Nothing you do is the right thing to do after stepping out of the shower quickly taking a swig of coffee and stepping on the cat at the same time :shocked:

This week I learned a valuable lesson.

Sometimes it's important to eat humble pie and make amends with people, even when they hurt you or let you down.  I have a tendency to wipe people out of my life, but after a few months of not hearing from them, I decided to make contact and now I feel better.  Although I won't ever see that person in the same light again, I do care how they are doing so I want to keep in touch.

yup, Trust people until they give you a reason otherwise; the first time its on them, but the second time is on you. It's a very good quality to be forgiving. You will be much happier in life as you already know. I have found people will always violate your trust at some point. We all have a vice; however, its another fact that people will always redeem themselves if they are really your friend. You just need to give them the chance. It's the hardships that make bonds stronger.

Cloud Watching is as fun as Star Gazing.

This evening I found myself at a deserted park and decided to gaze above. I was enjoying the view but the thunder clouds began to move in. So I had to make a hasty retreat. Anyway I snapped a few for you, my friends.




Soon after came a quick and violent thunderstorm. Classic!

My laptop's power adapter started beeping today and I went to a local computer shop at my place hoping for a cheap replacement. Man, even the local ones costs almost 100 ringgit. Didn't buy it.
Went back to home and checked the original power adapter price in the manufacturer's website, 150 !

Lesson learned with Google: Its a common problem with HP Pavillion laptops! and power adapters are expensive.! Need to be careful with HP products next time.

I think adapters are expensive for all laptops, I had to buy a new one for mine, I got one that works for all brands, from a "white brand" and it cost me 56 euros, wich I belive is like 240 ringgit.

I have learned that the nails for decking are very flimsy, and I have to be very delicate; otherwise, the heads will strip, and I have a nail sticking halfway out with no way of getting it in further or out.

Yep, would probably buy that one too. Cheaper. I will go to HP service center to check out the original one first.

You could just buy a brand new power cable, take it out the packaging and switch it for the knackered one, take it back into the shop and tell them 'no thanks mate, changed me mind. I'd like my money back instead'
