My Life’s Very Own BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death)

Nothing like getting a core/memory dump from a crash,
especially after a long struggle with denial of service.
It seems that the bigger the memory space used, the bigger the
size of the dump file. The three finger salute doesn’t
seem to yield any response and the reset button is not
there. What else is there besides yanking the power out?

How To (Accidentally) Renovate Someone Else’s Apartment II

Well, what’s done is done. Some of the stuff that were
(accidentally) done were stuff that I wanted to do anyways (e.g.
grilles, lights, fans, floor polish, additional lighting points).
I asked around prior to this about the cost to do up the
apartment like that and the ballpark figure given was around
RM4500-5000. So just to be fair to the contractor, I paid him
slightly over half of what he wanted. At least it will cover
some of the material cost for him (with the exception of the
green tiles) and definitely much better than having to tear
down the stuff that he had done. I reckon the sight of the
green tiles would make a good conversation item when people
come round to visit.

if you wanna know what happened.

How To (Accidentally) Renovate Someone Else’s Apartment

Well, I don’t know how but it happened anyways. Thing is, it was
my recently completed apartment
that got the accidental renovation treatment. And it was no surprise
Casa Impian
job either (as is obvious by the green colored tiles for the
apartment’s entrance and balcony). A contractor was supposed to
renovate someone else’s apartment on the same floor as mine but
he mistakenly renovated my apartment instead. He found this out
when he got the owner of the other apartment to inspect the
apartment after completing the renovation. Somehow,
accidentally turning my hair purple
doesn’t sound as silly as it did before.

Lose Control

Trash my ego
Kick my stereo
Make my head blow
I always lose control

You Scratch My Back And I Scratch Yours

I like the election banners spotted at Pokok Sena, Kedah where my friend had his wedding reception yesterday. The Barisan banner reads: “Insya’Allah semua pakat sokong PAS” (God willing everyone will support PAS) and the PAS banner reads: “Insyaallah kami undi Barisan Nasional” (God willing we’re voting Barisan Nasional).

Selamat Pengantin Baru: Ridhuan & Zaiton

A good friend of mine (and one of the nicest and most helpful chaps anyone could come across) back at uni held his wedding reception at his parents place in Pokok Sena, Kedah today. To see the beaming and gleaming couple on a joyous occasion like this is definitely worth the solo four hour plus drive there and back again! Moga berbahagia dan berkekalan hingga ke anak, cucu, cicit dan seterusnya!

A Prayer For The Ex (or Ex-es)

I want her to be happy. No matter what that means. I want her
to find someone who will treat her with all the love she deserved
from me. I want her to meet someone who will see her always, as
I do now… through Your eyes. — Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey in
Bruce Almighty).

I’m also praying that my list for this prayer doesn’t grow
anymore.

How To (Accidentally) Turn Your Hair Purple

Woke up late. Jumped into bathroom. Turned on shower. Ran out of
shampoo. Used sister’s leftover shower gel
instead. Applied toothpaste on toothbrush. Brushed teeth with
right hand while worked lather on head with left hand. Rinsed
mouth, head and body until clean. Toweled off and put on clothes.
Combed hair. Ate breakfast. Drove to office. Blablabla. Come
lunchtime while walking to warong friend says: “That’s some
funky purple tinge you got on your hair, dude!” Anti-stress
indeed.
