My Work Table

I was back in school to do some work.
Since I had my new camera with me, I decided to take pictures of my work table in school.

Shocked right...
This is not my table.
The table belongs to my neighbour.
From what I know, some of the things have been there for the last 10 years.

Forget about that table.
This is my table.

There isn't much things on my table as I just used it for 6 months.
All there is would be worksheets and books.
I made some rearrangements to my table during the term holiday.
The postcards on the cupboard door were publicity materials from Montage 2009.

That's my table,

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3

I have been looking at this digital camera ever since Gerald told me about it.
Looking through the reviews and user reviews, this camera seems good and useful.
And with the $400 available to claim, how can I not resist buying the camera?

I bought the camera from MS Color, more specifically, from Aunty Florence.
Really nice lady I must say.

The images are from

I'm loving my LX3,

iPuke Botak Jones

Was thinking of what to have for lunch.
Since I was at Bedok Central, decided to walk across the library for Botak Jones.
As usual, I ordered the botak burger with cheese and side order of spicy fries and pasta salad.

The food came in a full plate, each dish taking up third of the plate.
The pasta salad was stunningly A LOT!

Close up of the whole plate.

The combination of pasta salad and spicy fries proved to be a bit wrong.
My stomach was feeling uncomfortable when I reached the bus stop on my way home.
Eventually, my stomach gave way after holding on to it at home for some time.
I think I threw up about 90% of that plate of food.

The next round of Botak Jones, I swear I will not have this side dishes combi again.

Backdated photo

Today just happened to take out my camera to take pictures of the things I've bought at the PC Show.
And I saw that inside my memory card, there is an image of an evening sky taken from my balcony window.

The editing part is a bit poor.
I am still unable to get the colors of the clouds out.
Perhaps the camera setting was incorrect and hence, I was unable to get the desired outcome that I wanted.
The sky looked pretty nice from my eyes, but after taking a look at the image on my mac, it did not turn out correctly.
Anyway... here's the image.

The exif shows that the image was taken on 19 April.
Wow... that's like 1.5 months ago.


PC Show 2009... BBB Part 2

Part of the PC Show buy buy buy spree...
Today's main aim was to order the desktop and get the printer.
And I've also decided to get the Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student edition for the new desktop.

The selected desktop is from a computer part company call Pluto.
The new desktop will only arrive on 25th june.
We shall wait till then to get the images of the new desktop.

After ordering the desktop, I went up to Hall 6 to purchase the Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student edition.
The offering price at the Microsoft booth is $159 with free webcam, cheaper than addition the software from the desktop purchase.

After that was back to Hall 4 to get the Canon printer.
The model I purchased was the Pixma MP198.
Surprisingly, I came to know that the printer can take 2 models of ink.
Then I found out from the nice sales guys that actually, the difference is just the capacity of the ink tanks.
Also, I reused the trolley I got from scanner purchase from Epson last year end. (ops... use wrong trolley, but still it's just a trolley).
I bought one set of ink too and the printer came with free wireless Logitech mouse.

Image of printer from Canon's website.

The printer will wait until the new computer arrives so for now, it will stay in the box.
That marks the end of my buy buy buy season for PC Show 2009.

Total damage done = $1 844.50
Got 32 lucky draw tickets from today's purchase.
And... today happens to be my pay day.
Sad sia.

PC Show 2009... BBB Part 1

PC Show is here again.
Went down on the first day to take a look at the deals.
Not a vary fantastic experience though.
Had to spent 3 hours at the Starhub booth just to re-contract my MaxOnline. (Cos got free netbook, lenovo s10)

However, I did not go home empty handed.
Bought the ScanDisk thumbdrive and signed up for the Singtel mobile broadband. (Singtel side only took me 20min)
And not forgetting that I had to carry back the unused trolley that was meant for the printer.

Here are the items for today:
ScanDisk Cruzer Titanium 8GB (4GB was sold out when I got to the booth)

Mobile Broadband USB stick from Singtel

Brought back the brochures from the show to on desktop prices for my brother to see and select.
Will be going down again tomorrow to get the desktop and printer.

Tired legs,

Oh gosh... Imeem

Didn't know that Imeem has changed so much since I last used it. (don't know when was it too)
And I stupidly deleted the old embedded code for Moon River.
So now I'm stuck with the 30 sec listening preview for all the songs I have picked.

Should have copied the code and pasted it somewhere first.
Now the full Moon River song is gone and Imeen does not provide full song streaming unless the track is approved.

The song currently playing is the main soundtrack piece for the film Okuribito (meaning Departures).
The review has been done in one of my previous posts.

Preview listening only,
