I bought the newspaper…

March 29, 2008 at 9:18 pm (Personal)

… NOT!

I really didn’t buy the newspaper. I saved 80 cents for that. 🙂

I wonder what’s making job hunting so hard. I think I’ll do things the hard way. Like I used to be. Is it the required skills? Is it the qualifications?

Or is it the “I-lie-to-you-that-I-can-do-this-and-that” that makes the job secure?

Some people just don’t deserve that job as much as other people need it. Some people just lie their way through to earn it. Some people just wait (like me) because other people who are incompetent managed to secure that job offer first.

Well, some people are playing chess. They think and wait for the next move.

Others, plays like checkers like an amateur. They just go straight without thinking that it could be worthless move.


And I don’t need your money. You might as well donate your 80 cents to the needy. I’m not one of them. I don’t ask for charity.

In Flames (A Sense Of Purpose) Album Review

March 29, 2008 at 2:16 pm (Band reviews, Music Reviews)

Looks like In Flames have changed their sound?

But I still liked the vocalist’s voice. Not too gore, not too clean. Just nice for an aggressive music with lots of melodies. I think it suits In Flames very well.

In Flames - A Sense Of Purpose

You can listen to the the whole album songs at In Flames official MySpace account. (As of date of post, it could be removed in the near future)


You’ll be rocking in no time!

My personal review rating: 8.5/10

Reasons: I missed the old In Flames. Much more aggressive and faster paced. But I think In Flames musical talents are way beyond judgement, hence they still preserve their sound. A mixture of fast and slow tempo music, a mix of breakdowns and punchy riffs, well it’s all about metal isn’t it?

Limited Edition Epiphone “Nicke LP Custom”

March 18, 2008 at 7:13 pm (Personal)

Limited Edition Epiphone “Nicke LP Custom”

Until today, I didn’t know what guitar I was playing on. All I know it was a custom epiphone guitar I bought on impulse. 😛

So I did some research. I don’t know where to start, so I thought of using the “skulls and bones” as part of my keyword other than Epiphone.

And this page came up.

Now I realised that it was a custom guitar by a guitarist of “Backyard Babies”. So I though, I want to sample some of their songs and see what they sounded like. Went into my favourite music site, imeem.com, and searched for it.

Looks like their songs are more of the rock-type music. Can’t really generalize their sound, but it sounded like that. Kinda nice.

The hard true fact is that I wanted to get another epiphone guitar. But by the time I came into the shop, it was not there anymore. 😦 The one below is WAY cheaper than the one I bought (the above guitar)

Limited Edition Special-II “Dr Skull” Guitar

I am definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for this guitar again. I loved that “skull” design. Just suits my desires. 😛

And I’m also trying to aim for this one too…

ask yusry’s girlfriend anything. Hehehehe

March 11, 2008 at 3:51 pm (Announcements!, General, iPod Touch)

When my boyfriend (whose name is Yusri btw) started writing about Ipod Touch, I laughed at him because I think it’s so useless and obsolete. All he did is just comment about the product and write directions already written by IT geeks but in terms even a 13 year old can understand. I even think he is crazy for answering inquiries for free.

At first we were excited when traffic picked up from the usual less than 10 per day. We had readers as far away as Canada, USA, Israel, Middle East, etc! He did not list his blog in any traffic website but it became popular anyway and was even featured on the front page of WordPress.

Then I brought up the idea of turning traffic into money. But he was really against it saying no readers would want to see advertisements. So he used the Donations button instead. Which I think is hopeless because no one would want to donate money! I was being realistic. But he brushed me aside.

I like money, and I am sure Yusri loves it too. So if you like what you see in this blog and is satisfied with the content, please spare a thought at the effort put into answering your inquiries and the painstaking write up of technical entries. So help us by donating!

And btw, further entries about Ipod Touch and other IT stuffs, are now written in this blog:


And if you’re a girl, consider an IT geek for a boyfriend. Most may look like robots, but at least you know your computer and other gadgets are safe in their hands. HAHAHAHAHAHA! You can sleep soundly knowing you’ll have a hero to recover lost documents and a busted computer. And maybe learn a thing or two from him about the gadget you just bought without actually reading the manual. Yusri has served me well for the last 2 years. 😛

That’s all. Hehehehe……

Hi guys.

Thanks for the support shown. Though I’m am saddened that I’m losing readers, but that doesn’t really hurt me so much. What I’ve accomplished to do is all mostly written down in my blog, and I hope they can be useful to everyone out there.

Here are some facts I’ll never be able to get again. Now this blog is getting less and less traffic than it used to be. 🙂

Best Day Ever: 2,222 — Sunday, February 24, 2008
