No one likes a goofball.

Hello people!!! I’m not such a bad blogger after all, don’t I? see it’s just like only yesterday I’m posting a new post, and now I’m posting again! hehehe.. ouughh! yes! I’m on fire!

Hmm, now let see, what I’ve got to tell? hmmm… mmmm… hahaha just kidding, I’ve got tons and tons of story to tell!

Let’s start.

Semalam aku send sms kat supervisor aku.

Isi kandungan dia lebih kurang macam iniew lah –

Salam, Dr,

Dr, (dgn nada lembut), I’m using these methods to gather my data – data code and data sheet (quantitative) and in-depth interview (qualitative)  since I nak buat content analysis saja on XXXXXXXXXXX  XXXXXXXXXX. Yang paling penting is the interview sebab I nak guna samples from all backgrounds whom are fans of that series.

What do you think, Dr? (nada mengharap)

Send. (klik!)

And a gazillion minutes later baru la direply..

Yes, you can use the methods.

Ok! Harap tak diubah ya sebab to be frank, aku dah malas nak amend lah. Bagi aku benda tu dah ok sangat-sangat. Bukan lah aku nak riak tapi I know what I’m doing.  This is sooo kacangg lah for me. Cuma yang agak susah nanti bila nak gather data. Proposal ni aku tak rasa susah lah. Yang penting kau kena tahu apa kau nak buat dan apa method kau nak gune? The best thing about my supervisor is, dia supercool gile! Dulu aku selalu jmpe dekat faculty, tak pun kat luar aje. Pernah je jumpa kat Wangsa Walk. Kau ado jumpe supervisor thesis kau kat shopping mall? Nan ado. So he is cool. Satu lagi dia tak merepek nak suruh aku buat panjang berjela dan aku pun tak minat nak panjang berjela kan thesis aku yang boleh dipermudahkan itu.

Teringat masa April lepas, aku pergi mock-teaching di UiTM Melaka, ada 3 candidate lain. Aku sorang je jejaka, mind you. Tengok thesis bukan main tebal, tapi when it comes to speaking and lecturing, OUT beb. But I dare myself, for something totally worth it. I took the rish of going and if its not because of these thesis, sah sah aku dah masuk mengajar di UiTM Melaka. So you see, this is why that piece of paper is absolutely crucial for me. It’s not so much about the vast attention being one stop ahead of everyone, but the fact that I’m definitely into wanting more in life – more salary, better life, more academician friends. I wanted to travel the world and have a good career. I am already 28. It’s time.

So yes, agak lega disitu sebab aku sebenarnya dah lama tak jenguk proposal aku tuh. To tell you the truth, aku dah buat habis tunggu findings aje tau! Hehe, gile kan? Orang lain patot tunggu proposal lepas, aku tidak ya, teros buat semua dulu. Bak kata orang dulu-dulu, langkah bendul gitu. Apa pun apa saja aku buat tu sebab aku yakin that I ROCK IT. So for you guys out there, errr… Just do it?


Gadget Apple sungguh cool!

28 10 2008

Vahhhh. Adalah orang tu, dia tengah dalam proses nak beli MACbook dan iPhone! Vahhhhhhhhhhhh! Jangan fikir dua kalilah. Segera ke Queensbay sekarang! 5.5K untuk MACbook dan iPhone. Nanti orang di Starbucks jeling! Baru IN brader! Dan kalau ada duit lebih (tapi macam membazir pulak), boleh dapatkan iPod Touch, iPod Shuffle dan iPod Classic. (Tapi bila fikir balik, itu duit you kan, suka hati you lah you nak buat apa pun.). Vahhhhhhhhhhh kuat ngepongg kato ore kelate.

For the basic MACbook of 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo + 1GB Memory + 120GB + Combo drive + Bluetooth/Wifi (kalau takde ni di alaf baru ni, wajarlah Apple dicampak ke laut), it will cost you at about RM3,899. Kalau nak yang lagi besar memory, sediakanlah duit dalam amount yang besar juga.

2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB RAM, 200 GB Hard Drive, DVD/CD SuperDrive plus Bluetooth/Wifi is at around RM4,599. I know of this sebab I terima weekly updates news on Apple via Switch. Apa itu Switch? Pergi Queensbay sekarang!

Oh ya, untuk iPhone pula, it’s around 2K. I can’t give you the specific price sebab tak ramai pun yang jual benda alah ni. Tapi jangan risau, tukang jual akan crack kan untuk you guys. Syhhhhhhhhh you bitches doesnt hear this from me!!!!!. My cousin sekarang pakai HTC Diamond yang sungguh tak best itu. My auntie pakai DOPOD! Itu best! I loike!! Tapi depa satu family memang suka campur-campur jenama gadget, unlike me yang sungguh setia.

Speaking of Queensbay, I miss watching movies so damn much! Lama tak tengok wayang.

P/S = Apple Macbook, Macbook Pro and iMac are now Windows-friendly, meaning your can install you Windows Vista in it. Merasa!!!! *gempa bumi.

iPhone and U.

24 06 2008

Most people either love or hate the iPhone’s touch screen, and based on a report on the LA Times, women with long fingernails are among the haters. Why? Well, since the iPhone’s touchscreen only responds to electrical charges emitted by your bare fingertips, women with long nails are left out in the cold. A woman interviewed for the article went so far as to suggest Apple was being misogynistic because it did not include a stylus for women and didn’t consider womens’ fingers and nails when designing the phone.

Honestly, though, this same argument has come up against keyboards, touch screen monitors, and anything else that involves the use of your fingers, so should every gadget maker change the design of its products to accommodate users with long nails, or should people with long nails learn to work around this problem like they have in the past? I’d love to hear what Apple has to say about all this, but I doubt they’ll ever address this particular design flaw.

Personally, I’d rather have them focus on the real issues of the iPhone, like the lack of a video camera, extra storage, and better camera, but that’s just me. Besides, there are styli out there that work with the iPhone just fine and are pretty affordable.

This all reminded me of an iPhone reviewer who had a hard time using the iPhone due to her long nails, and in her frustration she said, “I guess people who use Apple products are too cool for fingernails.” But are we? What do you think?


Ted Baker : Well, here is what I think… Are you fucking kidding me? First of all, its a product for people to use. If you don’t like it, there are many other products to fill the void. Second of all, that’s YOUR problem and not Apple’s. Cut your fingernails or buy something else. They don’t have to design it for everyone, and just because some women CHOOSE to have long nails and can’t use it does not make Apple misogynistic.

You are not supposed to type with your fingernail, you use the fatty part of your thumb and use your index finger. Also you are not supposed to type everything exact, the iPhone auto corrects for you. Once you figure these little things out you will be fine. Besides, a man with long nails would have the same problem.

What a sad, sad, sad world we live in when people actually have to complain about a high tech gadget that does infinitely more than any computer could 20 years ago and all in the palm of your hand. If we did as much to cars as Apple has to music and car phones, do you think you all would cut your nails to have one? If you have time to generate a story like this based on the length of your nails you are the lowest common denominator in human evolution. Do humanity a favor and get out of the gene pool.

I can’t believe with all the real problems we face, someone would have the gall to complain about something this trivial. Different products are made to suit different individuals. Buy something else! Evidently the iPhone is not the product for you. Time to move on, there is no sympathy card (Yes, Mimi) to play.

For the fat-fingered, simple, buy something else and quit your gripping! If a touchscreen doesn’t work for you, don’t buy the damn phone! Asshole.
