What's up with WhatsApp

Do you fancy Blackberry where the users could text other Blackberry users around the world by simply entering the contact's Blackberry PIN? Blackberry use Blackberry Messenger to do that.

Do not own Blackberry device? No worries. WhatsApp is here!

Similiar to Blackberry Messenger technology, WhatsApp uses push system to delivered messages. What the best part here is, the app is available cross-platform! - now iPhone, Blackberry, Symbian & also Android can message each other.

Blackberry Messenger uses PIN system to identify users and the phone, however WhatsApp uses phone number as an ID! Means that, even you do not know your friend's device ID, you just need their contact phone number to get connected to each other. How cool is that!

Download now and use! iPhone and Blackberry version are available via AppStore & AppWorld. The Symbian & Android version are still in beta version, only available at the developer's website.

Not only text, audio, picture, video, and even you can share your location!


There is also another similiar app called Cnectd. But its kinda crap. :P
Here is the link anyway.

Gate to Hades.

Today is the 3rd day of raya.

and the number of traffic accidents really shocked me. -

There was a point in my life, where had taught me something.

that something may not be really important to everyone, but its important for those who are really care of others.

It happened few years ago, where a friend of mine told me a very shocking news.
His only little brother, were killed in car accident.

From the speech of him, i found out that, his father were keep on calling his little brother to get home as soon as possible. His father were pushing him.

Then I realized, it was the key to the accident; pushing other people.

You know, pushing other people it can be a positive thing, especially when getting jobs done.
But for me, pushing people while they are driving is so not right.
Just imagine you had a father who were fierce in person, keep on calling you to get back as soon as possible because it was after dawn already. Then you start to accelerate faster, spurn the traffic signal and drive dangerously. It will cost your life if bad things happen!

So moral of the story is, do not push someone when they are driving. Bad things may happen. Who knows. Perhaps you will feel bad about it for the rest of your life.

Thanks for reading :)

Always be my baby

You know baby, I miss you alot, like really alot.

It has been more than a week you left me here.
I really hope you will be here by Raya.
Because after Raya over, I need you desperately.

Hello reader,
I am not talking about a person, but rather a thing.
She is my baby, Asus EeePC 1005P netbook, which left me for service center after she had a failed hard disk drive.
I have been lonely with her. She always been my side, like always, almost everywhere I go. To the class, to the library, to the restaurant, even when I am shopping for something and even when I go to the toilet. (Nah just kidding)

Something about me is, computer is a part of my life. I have been using it nearly decade ago. So you know, its kind of hard for me to have my routine without it.

So to make things easy for me, I have been using my phone to do things which I could do with my netbook. I surf the web with my phone, I facebook on it, and even chatting via facebook chat and yahoo messenger using my phone. I use Snaptu and Nimbuzz.

Yes, without my phone, I would gone half crazy by now.

I am still waiting for my netbook to be fixed and send to me.. haishh I am just tired of waiting.
Anyway, I am using my brand new baby here while waiting for the Asus to be affixed.
This new baby name is Toshiba NB305. It is a great netbook. High built quality, solid components and very very attractive. But funny thing is, its kind of sluggish comparing to the Asus. Eventhough the specification is almost the same.
Perhaps, Windows 7 does sucks at netbook. You are right Alief. It does.

Anyway, I am thinking to completely remove windows 7 from my Asus later on, and move on other alternative OS. Ubuntu is my choice. Do you have any better suggestion for me dear reader? You are welcome to suggest me anything. :)

I am on holiday, but with LOTS LOTS and LOTS of works.
Not a leisure holiday, rather I would called it, UNFORGIVING holiday.

What are these??

I am here sitting alone in the library level one of KBM, doing my work on private labeling. --
The tense is here and I am running out of time.

The clock is pointing at 4.00 p.m. I have few hours more while waiting for breaking fast. I cannot focus on my works. It just too distracting.

Sometimes, without any reason, my mind would pop up about the future, current, and past.

Yeah past is past and history. It would just be my story.

However, current and future are two different things compare to past.

What ever in the past might will reflects the current and the future, but there is nothing you can do about it. The thing that you can do is about you current things before it turns to the past.

Yeah, I am pretty worry of my own future...

Am I doing good? Am I on the right track? Will me getting a better future for me self? What will it be like in the future?

I am trying my best here. I am doing my best here. But what is the thing that is still missing?
Well, in my absolution, I just need Victory.
Yes, Victory. That is the word and the thing I have been looking for this while.
Have you tasted Victory? Its sweet, flavourful, mouth watering and too good to let it go. You do know how it feel likes to taste victory.

-And everyone hates losing. Who like losing anyway? Do you want to be a loser? No one does!
I do not want to be perfect. I just want to be excellent.

"You reach for the stars. Then in case you do not reach em, You will still get to see the outer space. Go go go astronauts", quoted from Odie Abdul.

These words really stuck in my head since long time ago.

Yeah I can go nuts! In fact I am a nuts in chasing my dreams. Giving up just not my way.
When I said you need to shut up and listen to me, you really need to zip your mouth and lean your ears. That is how it works with me.
--- but this never happen to anyone. Just a metaphor. :)

I want Victory in every single thing out there.

Reaching For the Stars!

And you dear, you are my victory that I have secured. :)

Reading is good.

Some say reading is a boring activities. But not for me.
I enjoy reading. It does not matter whether that particular reading material does not have any relevancy to my life, I still read it.

I cannot define why people does not like reading that much.
They say its boring, its not interesting and not fun at all.
In my opinion, there is no excuses.

Reading makes you a better person.
Turn off your computer once awhile, and start reading good material. It will helps you :)

Cook, Eat, Enjoy.

I love to eat. But I do not like to eat. Get what I mean?

I love to eat things that favours me, but I do not always eat them.

For me, eating to much the things that you enjoyed and love the most would make you feel, well less interesting later on.

This is what we called marginal utility; the more you consume it, the less pleasure will be.
Take for example, you walked across a bakery store and saw a nice fluffy cheesecake. You bought a slice. Then you will begin consuming it. The first bite of the cheesecake tasted so heavenly. Second and third bite may remain the same satisfaction. But as more you consuming it, the level of satisfaction or pleasure would decrease with additional bite.
So you see, this is what would I feel towards food.

Yes indeed I love to cook, but I do not cook often. Just once awhile. I love Italian Cuisine.

Italian cuisine offers simplicity yet provide the best satisfaction, that is when you cook it right.

When I would feel to cook, I would cook with passion. All preparation would nicely place. All cutting would result a best appearance, and not to forget, the TASTE.

I have a very sensitive taste buds. I would cook in moderate taste; not too salty, not too hot, not to sweet and so on.

Some of the things that I love to cook are Wagyu beef, chicken breast, salmon, and lamb (steak and racks). Method of cooking? I would prefer pan fried using Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). When oven become available, I would use both pan and oven.

Aromatic herbs give pulse to the foods. Basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano and much more.

Salad is essential for starting a meal. A simple salad with homemade Caesar's dressing is just enough. Toss it with Romaine lettuce and some rockets, some Iceberg lettuce and Lolo Rossa. Put in some garlic-scented crouton, make it perfect.

One of my favourite simple salad is Avocado with caviar. Does not matter whether its red or black caviar. But I prefer red.

After done with cooking, I would place nicely on the plate with decent garnishing. Snap a photo, then put on the table, sit down and start cutting the piece, put in my mouth and blend the taste.

Enjoying each bite is an unforgotten moment.

Panfried lamb cutlets served with pine nuts sauce accompanied with sauteed spinach, roasted herbed cherry tomato and mashed potatoes.

Some delicacies I enjoyed the most are caviar, oyster, smoked salmon, scallop, and cheeses.

Out of nowhere, I came upon this:

"Do You Remember?"

I remember...The way you glanced at me, yes I remember
I remember...When we caught a shooting star, yes I remember
I remember.. All the things that we shared, and the promise we made, just you and I
I remember.. All the laughter we shared, all the wishes we made, upon the roof at dawn

Do you remember..?
When we were dancing in the rain in that December
And I remember..When my father thought you were a burglar
I remember.. All the things that we shared, and the promise we made, just you and I
I remember.. All the laughter we shared, all the wishes we made, upon the roof at dawn

I remember.. The way you read your books,
yes I remember
The way you tied your shoes,
yes I remember
The cake you loved the most,
yes I remember
The way you drank you coffee,
I remember
The way you glanced at me, yes I remember
When we caught a shooting star,
yes I remember
When we were dancing in the rain in that December
And the way you smile at me,

yes I remember
