Good morning @ 0630hrs!

Emergency problem with the boss of all bosses's laptop.

So I'm in office. Not procrastinating. Just enjoying the morning air. Kinda stale actually cos...

Damn sleepy. Zzzz....

[Updated] Problem fixed as of 0653hrs! Time to nap a little... but... now I'm damn hungry!!!

Sorry, no time to blog!

I woke up at 1pm today!

Need to head down now!

I'm super tired.

It's been an exhilarating day. And I'm beat. There's still Saturday and Sunday again for me.

But if you're on, I am too. :) Watch this space. I'll be short on words as usual.

Just pictures.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 "Live" Unit Spotted!

Attended SingTel's i.Luminate Innovation Business Forum 2008 @ Singapore Expo yesterday. Chanced upon a booth showcasing Windows Mobile devices... HTC Touch Pro, MWG Zinc II, Samsung Omnia etc etc and OMG! Is that a...?!?!


also known as the SEX-1 !!! :D

And it's a working set! Not a dummy!

Though I must agree, it's kinda laggy. And yup. Apparently no accelerometer. What a let down.

At least it's almost the exact same size as my K810i.

Note to XDA-Developers: It's a "live" working unit, but it's not the final firmware nor production unit as communicated to me by the Microsoft guys manning the booth. :)

W00T! A Pair of Singapore F1 Grand Prix Grandstand Tickets!

Attended "SingTel i.Luminate Business Innovation Forum 2008" today. Whole day event from 8am to 6pm. To qualify for F1 tix you have to stay until at least 5pm. Damn lucky I lingered around... it was kinda noisy and I didn't realise I had a missed call. I called back. "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE WON FOR YOURSELF A PAIR OF F1 TICKETS!" W00T! OMFG! I wasn't even hoping to win this time! 2 previous SingTel events I've been to, no luck at all. (By the way, those 2 are "One Formula to True Mobility (Windows Mobile)" and "Bold & Beautiful Night Out (BB Bold)") And mind you, those are 3 days Bay Grandstand passes. Wow... So... the question is... the event starts erm... this Friday... so erm... "Should I sell them off or should I go watch?"

SingTel BlackBerry Bold Unboxing

I've just received the package this afternoon.

Apologies for the bad video and my shaky hands. I have only an iPhone to do the vid.

That sounds so wrong

Lazy Sunday afternoon.
Fired up Dynasty Warriors (三国无双)on the vintage Xbox with my sis.

This ending got us ROFLOL.

"What is this strange feeling? I find myself gripping my spear not out of anger or hate;
I am driven by something else entirely. What is it that makes me feel such passion?"

If you ask me, sounds like puberty. :)

Black Eyed Peas are for Real?

I didn't know that. :)

SingTel's BlackBerry Bold Pricing

Final post for the night before I storm off to bed.

The BlackBerry Bold 9000 will be available from SingTel for S$988 (~approx US$696). That's the price without a contract. With a contract, I'll estimate it to be lower at maybe $488 or so.

SingTel also introduces 4 "exclusive" programs for the BB:

- Worldmate Live (Gold)
- WayFinder
- GreenFinder
- Viigo

These will be value-added services that can be triggerd via an SMS from your BB. The programs will be pushed to your BB. Yes, current BBs such as the 87xx and 83xx are supported. So are the Pearls.

Unfortunately, no pricing or instructions given as yet to get them.

Well. Good night. And good luck with your gadgets.

May the bytes be with you.



I mean... I'm really FUCKING FURIOUS. FUCK IT!

The iPhone just decides to act up and lose all the photos I've taken at the BlackBerry Bold launch. But, that's not what I'm peeved with.

I took some pictures with my mom just now and NOW THOSE ARE LOST! AND I LOVE THOSE PICTURES. A couple of candid shots taken at the right time in the right poses. LOST FOREVER!

Other times I'll fire up a data recovery program and recover as much as I can. But the bloody iPhone doesn't have a bloody DISK MODE so I jolly bloody well can't bloody recover any bloody shit. You can't access no goddamn xyzphone cos there's no goddamn DISK ACCESS FOR IT! Not on Windows! Not on Mac! No No No! Zilch! Nada! YOU'RE FUCKED!

Yeah. Shut up. I know. Caveat Emptor. Wipe that smug look off your face please.

But admit it. Apple is being a total bastard in this case.

I'm switching to depression mode now. Good night.

Bold and Beautiful Night Out (UPDATE: DAMN THE iPHONE)

That's me next to a gorgeous blue-haired lady.

I don't like to see myself. So neither can you. LOL.

Ok, the event was held at Movida, St. James Power Station from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

The whole thing kicked off with a Brazilian fire-juggling performance. After that, some executives from SingTel and RIM went on stage to hawk on the virtues of the BlackBerry Bold and what we should do to get it. We were given a pre-order link. So I whipped out the iPhone and ordered 4.

Plenty of drinks to go around. Thank you SingTel! :D

UPDATE: I wanted to post some pictures of the event. Unfortunately, the damn iPhone lost all it's photos. GOD DAMN IT.

I wanted to take pictures of a few freebies from the show. But I'm too angry for that.

Japanese Charcoal Roasted Black Beans

Sorry for the bad picture quality... but DAMN! These beans are da bomb!

Distinctly sweet, with a subtle fragrance of black beans and charcoal. Mmmm... and very crunchy too. :)

This pack of Japanese Charcoal Roasted Black Soy Beans or kuromame (黒豆) was kinda expensive though... S$16 for a 200g pack bought from Plaza Singapura, but, ah well. *shrug*

Yum yum.

An alternative to the new bulky Eeepc 900 power brick charger

One of the main differences between the Asus Eeepc 900 and her predecessors is the cumbersome power brick shown above. Also known as the "block and cable" charger as mentioned in the eeeuser forums.

I've been (trying to) pack my room in the last couple of days and came upon my old 3rd Gen Apple iPod charger. It has a removable 3 pin header which is now transplanted onto my Eeepc power brick.


Not the most elegant solution but hey...

... it works and goes with the overall white look. :)

One more thing, my iPod adapter comes with this alternative 2 pin header as well.
