Back in KL

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Have been very lazy in Kuching. Just took a flight back to KL and here I am. Wish it would rain because it’s freaking hot today. And I’m getting the bug that’s been going around in Kuching. Expecting a full fledged sore throat in 2 days.

Old computer parts.

While I was back in Kuching, I had to part with my beloved collection of computer parts. The oldest system I have is a 286 with a black and white monitor. But since it is taking up too much space at home, I had to throw them all away. The garbage truck won’t accept it and it needs to be recycled. So I sent it to a nearby recycling center.

“Komputer baru tukar lama…” (From the “tilam lama tukar baru” truck that always frequents my area.)

This is located near the blind center at Kenny Hill.

There are some working Pentium motherboards there if you are interested.

It’s good to take a break once in a while and be with friends to talk about the good old days of secondary school. Maybe someday someone will invent a “time preview” machine so you can go back in time to preview it. One movie featured it. I can’t remember which movie.

The end is near. 2007 will be over in 5 hours. Continue reading

New site layout

I’ve changed the whole layout of the site because I think the old layout was getting boring. And what better way to usher in 2008 than with a new look?

This layout will be tested out this week. Do let me know if you have any problems with it. I hope this will be easier to use than the old one. Continue reading

Back in Kuching

I’ve been back in Kuching for a few days now hence the lack of posts. Have been catching up with friends and futsal. Went to Sarikei on Friday and came back on Saturday. Just returned from Santubong mountain yesterday. Pictures and videos will be posted up soon.

Flight back was pretty eventful. As usual, I took a standby ticket because it’s way cheaper (RM97 return). But being a standby ticket, it means I have to wait for empty seats on the flight. But there are only 8 flights a day so it’s quite impossible that during festive season that you’ll have more than 50 empty seats as flights are almost always overbooked.

So we went for the jump seat again. We applied for the 1005 flight but I didn’t manage to get a seat. And it happened so that I met a captain who was flying to Kuching on the 2pm flight. And he offered us seats if we couldn’t get the 1005 flight. So at 2pm, I boarded his flight and here I am back in Kuching.

Kuching hasn’t changed a lot except for the opening of the new shopping complex, Boulevard. It is rumoured that there is a skating rink inside. The Spring will be opening soon too and that should divert some traffic from Boulevard. With two new shopping complexes, Kuching people will be spoilt for choice. Continue reading
