The Crying Rituals

September 30, 2007 0

For the past few Sunday evenings, Mayenne would be out with us for dinner. She would be a good baby with little fuss. For the past 2 Sunday evenings, once we got back home, she would start wailing and crying for a good 30 minutes,…

Down on Gadget Luck

September 27, 2007 0

This week my family has experienced some of the worst gadget experiences. Tuesday, I went to Sim Lim Square to redeem a free bluetooth headset (Lanso A6) when I signed up with OCBC EasiCredit. After bringing back to office and charging for more than 12…

I Like Routine

September 25, 2007 0

I like routine, not because I’m a boring person (actually, I am). With routine, I can plan my other ad-hoc activities around these fixed activities. If I live by the day, then how am I supposed to plan activities for tomorrow, or next week, or…

The Sony Ericsson P1i

September 23, 2007 0

It’s more well-designed than I had thought. When I initially saw the product announcement, I wasn’t very impressed with the look, and the keyboard which follows the M600i instead of the previous P-series. The M600i is totally plastic all around the casing. Not P1i. It…

I have long thought of what to get for Angie’s birthday – the Sony Ericsson P1i. I guess she also expected me to get it for her. Last year, I got her the M600i, which currently sells for more than half the price brand new.…

Magnum

September 20, 2007 0

My parents have always owned a car since I was very little, so family outings are always a breeze. But for all my other social and academic-related activities, I take public transport. So in a way, I am very familiar with car use, minus the…

What The F ?

September 19, 2007 0

Facebook, that is! There has been reports on the immense popularity of Facebook in America, but it never occurred to me how different it can be to Friendster or other online community sites, until I finally tried it yesterday, when someone finally invited me to…

Funny, Sia!

September 18, 2007 0

An extremely funny clip that I saw on Jack Neo’s blog. It was passed to him by a Malaysian director who is also into comedy productions. Some of the clip excerpts need some level of “de-intellect” to understand, so for those who don’t get it,…

New Responsibility

September 17, 2007 0

Yesterday, we celebrated Angie mum’s birthday at Marina Square. And Mayenne had her very first shopping outing after that. We walked for nearly 4 hours as we went to look for baby stuffs (what else). Mayenne was doing rather well, but even the best baby…

I Believe… in I Believe

September 16, 2007 5

In 2004, my music manager got me to produce an album by re-arranging a list of Mandarin pop songs in New Age style. I did 16 tracks and submitted to the record label. It seems that the album was ready to be released, but months…

A Testing Contest

September 14, 2007 0

I just joined ONE.MOTORING, a one-stop portal for motorists. They had a contest open to members who post at least once on the forum. The last day of the contest was yesterday, so I made one forum entry just for the sake of hoping to…

Long Live Canon Printers

September 10, 2007 1

My very first inkjet printer I bought was an Epson about 10 years ago. The reason for choosing that brand was its fame for photo-quality printouts. However, that printer did not last over 2 years because the print head clogged beyond repair. For my replacement…

Sweet Lullaby Deal

September 9, 2007 0

Today went to Alpine Motor to pay for the balance of the car. Had a long chit chat with the sales guy, Dex. After the car prices went up this round, sales plummeted. He said the next round COE is expected to go even higher…

Murphy’s all around us

September 7, 2007 0

I have planned for an outdoor portrait photoshoot with 6 girls for weeks. And it was ruined by the rain in the early morning. It’s sad how our plans are often thwarted by the self-fulfilling Murphy’s Law. On a positive note, I get to spend…

COE

September 5, 2007 0

Today is an exciting day for many car-buyers. In the previous COE bid, the price for Cat A fell almost 50% to $8118. Car prices fell across the board, resulting in a sudden rush for the car purchases (myself included). I was told that one…

Cars

September 3, 2007 0

Nowadays I am quite consumed with things about cars, something that I never expect myself doing since I obtained a driving license. Cars, to me, are transportation tools. But ever since I decided to get a car, I had to research on car models, trying…

The Beginning of September

September 2, 2007 0

September has begun. And so will Angie’s work. It’s been a beautiful experience for all of us. Priorities change and re-balanced with other commitments. It will be hard on Mayenne’s mother. After going through 3 months of dedicated care for baby, she will have to…
