Sexy netbook or should i say grrrrr…..


The Alienware M11x, with over 6.5 hours of battery life and weighing under 4.5 lbs. will start at an amazing $799! that is about RM 2.8k (at most it will be RM 3.5k) if Dell Malaysia manage to bring this little beast into this region (I can’t wait!). It is about time to change my old laptop already as it has serve me a glorious 2 years for work and play.

At last there is netbook with a masculine look as most of the netbook nowadays look very girlish to me. Still, a little bit curious, is it me or it is a norm that all netbook come without any optical drive i.e. DVD or Blu-ray, in that case it must be accompany with an external optical drive

Fame

I never watched the original film, subsequent television show or stage musical, the only exposure I had was its memorable + catchy theme song which is given the pop remix treatment in this updated retelling.

80s Fame

As last night i manage to watch the remake of this famous flick and I had a lot of fun watching Fame. It is a grown-up version of High School Musical with a little less gloss and plastic. Fame is a little more mature – and it’s funkier.

Fame is based in a New York Performing Arts school where kids audition to get in and then spend their formative high school years immersed in theatre, song and dance while at the same time maintaining a good grade point average in their academic work.

2010 Fame (released in the US in 2009)

The movie starts out with the characters happy and positive but along the way they are faced with real life issues that are faced by all performing arts students whether the decision is to drop out of school or whether they are just not good enough to be in a performing arts school in the first place.

The reality faced by struggling artists is, however, only lightly depicted as the industry is definitely darker than what we think it to be.

Asher Book plays Marco, the aspiring singer, and he really does have a good romantic voice. Anybody who hears him will fall in love with him. Naturi Naughton plays Denise Dupree, a classical pianist in training who decides that she wants to become a hip-hop singer and has to face up to her parents; she is a really good singer who gives Irene Cara a run for her money with her rendition of Out Here On My Own.

If you are a fan of So You Think You Can Dance then you will know finalist Kherington Payne who plays Alice, the best dancer in the school. She has a youthful exuberance and charisma and is the perfect fit as the aspiring dancer whose dream is to get admitted into a dance troupe.

But when it focuses on showing these youngsters displaying their talent, on the beauty of the performing arts and the struggles faced by practitioners of these arts, then Fame really excels.

Go watch it at your nearest cinemas!

week of pain

For the past 7 days i have been in pain and bear it since then until on the Friday 22nd, i can’t bear the pain anymore after 3 time of the same answer from the clinic. On that day, the clinic refer my illness to be treated at KJMC.

Actually i already think it just a minor gastric but i didn’t know that for a 1st timer the illness will be this bad as i couldn’t sleep at ease for the past 5 nights (including extra 2 nights in the hospital). As Ive been admitted for 3 nights now, i had gone several testing like ECG, Ultra-Sound (hahaha..usually this kind of test is only done to pregnant women but i don’t know, just following the doctor advices) and today they ask advised me to go for Endoscopic which is the doctor will put a scope inside my mouth where it will go down to my stomach and intestine to see how severe my gastric was. I was given anesthetic prior to the test and only wake up 3 hours later.

The doctor said that my gastric is not that serious but it is near to ulcer because he said that from the endoscopic he saw that there a several hemorrhage in my intestine and a lot of acid in my stomach that causing the pain. And he gave me new dose of medicine to see how it goes which require me to spend another night in the ward.

I hope tonight the pain will go away and i could start my job in 2-3 days time. InsyaAllah

craze for comic books

Some of ’em

The craze started actually when i was a little boy but at that time they aren’t much source to get the U.S comic books and thing that make it worse is the sky-rocket pricing as most of these comic were directly import from the distributor oversea whereby they don’t appoint a company to distribute it here in Malaysia. Maybe the market it not there at that time.

As i grew up, i still enthusiast to U.S comic books as not so long time ago, there were this company from Singapore called Gotham Comics (at first i thought it was a subsidiary of DC comics ahah…but sadly it was not).

Collection as to-date

To continue my enthusiasm and love towards comic books, after i have a job, this is the time where I earn my cold-hard cash to start my collections as I’ve started to bought my 1st Direct Issue which is Captain America #600.

Upper left to bottom right: Ultimate Avengers, Uncanny X-Men,
Captain America: Reborn and Batman: The Widening Gyre

As my collection grow bigger and i was thinking that it was tiring and waste of time for me to go to the nearest LCS (term for Local Comic Shop) every weekends just to get the update on what is up. So, as i read a column in a forum that this forumer advises that to pre-order the comic as not only it safe most of the time but also it give me the privilege to track my comic.

Upper left to bottom right: The New Avengers, Dark Avengers,
Uncanny X-Men Firts Class and Ultimate Spiderman

As for now, instead of going to The Mind Shop (to buy variant cover of the comic),also I usually went to Comics Mart @ Mid Valley Megamall (+603-2287 0626) to subscribe my favourite Direct Issues. As I’m satisfied with their service after my first 3 visit there, I then decided to continue my stock-up of comic books from them thus be one of their regulars. I would recommend to those comic books lovers and also board games (not the usual type) to visit this shop.

Astonishing X-Men, The Amazing Spider-Man and Nation-X

As the price of most comic books for 2009 and 2010 has increased from 2008 where I need to plan my financial as most of the comic books will cost me from USD 2.99 (RM 14) to USD 4.99 (RM16). Thus, I will do my research first and review whenever I want to opt for any new title. As for caring my collection of comic books, I always asked my LCS to supply me with the acid-free boards and poly-bag with self-adhesive to protect the quality of ink of the comic books from the exposure of moisture and excessive heat that could effect its value in the future. Nonetheless, I has a plan to buy the Mylar-bags and some comic books caring kits from the U.S soon.

Some of the latest issues that are still kept unseal
7 years in the waiting, SIEGE from Marvel (Limited Issue)
In the year 2010 and years to come, I will continue to collect the comic books as a hobby and as a enthusiast, as such I’ve a plan to start collecting rare type of comic as at that time found an X-Men issue that priced at RM 3++ and bough 1st Variant issue that he cover is by Joe Quesada, Editor-in-Chief of Marvel for Cap: Reborn #1

Maybe you can share your comments and experience of collectiong comic books to a beginner like me ait.

Planning at the early stage is good

Nothing serious..just want to scribbling a little bit about plans and make planning. There is a quote that says `If you fail to plan then you are plan to FAIL!’, well in a matter a fact i kind of agree with the quotation as we need to do planning to avoid any circumstances that might or will happen to us whenever we want to pursue the objective.

For example, I’ve plan to go for a vacation in the mid-June (let say not real), despite that i need to plan my leave, plan the timing, the itinerary to make sure my vacation will not facing any unwanted thing.

Yeah that is plan…will continue about this topic later on Lulz

PMS

No!…I’m not talking about that PMS, but this is a different type of PMS Lulz…last week i just had my performance reviewed and i found out that my performance quite okay for fresh graduate like me. Professionalism, committed and willing to learn are always be in my mind since i’ve started work and that is also what have been told to me by my boss (kembang jap), well i’m very proud of my-self alas that i’m a shy person which also i’ve been commented on that
`You must be proactive in your work and try to come out with ideas’..owww wah thats a little thing that i can do but i just don’t know where and how to start

When talking about my ability, i think i need to improve my soft-skills especially on communicating and also persuation as most of the time my work needed me to face with a lot of people from vast number of background and mostly the higher level of Management.

In term of writting skills, what is articulate by the way? Anyone of you who pass-by my blog can leave a comment and just tell me what is articulating, just lazy to google it Lulz. Thus, i just think i need to improve my writting as well as my command of language as it is crucial for me to convey the message to our clients.

I will make it one of my resolution for this year of 2010, as i need to focus on my target. InsyaAllah

Hand Dryer Vs Tissue

Which one is better after washing your hand after doing your `business’ in the toilet, either using a modern + automatic hand dryer or just using the old-toilet tissue regardless the thick or the dodgy one. I’m rather opt for the tissue as it is much safer as it can wipe you hand off and just throw it in the dustbin (disposable) rather than drying my hand and still uncertain whether the germ is still there or no despite the hot air that blowing to your hand. Agree with me, yes?
