08022012 Trip to ICW

Feeling depressed, I decided to go to ICW (Infinite Creation Workshop) to cheer myself up. This is the place to go to because on the random occasions, they will bring back some wonderful vintage or unique model kits from their travels to Hong Kong and Japan. Not only that, there would be more completed models to ogle at, all done by the Sifu's there.

Modeler starter kit. If  you need to build your model in a rush, this is for you. Otherwise, it would take time to build you own tools. And most of the time, its usually very personal.

I got this from Litt Tak's Warehouse sale long ago and now, this would be the second kit and they sold it cheaper....

I was besotted with the unit's shoulder systems and in my plan, a spare model is important

For the price I got it, it was a real bargain. Sometimes, you will feel very happy because you just happen to be there are the right time and at the right place.

Bandai an their pioneering multi-colour parts sprue

This is the shoulder part which is beautiful

And these are the shoulder's exhaust

Its not what you think. The Librarian is another group which developed this unique GUNDAM system.

How I wished the blade was clear...
And so, there you have it. It costs me less than RM100 to make me happy. But then sadness came back.


Because its going to the to=do bin and tomorrow, is another nightmare day for me...

Euro Coins

My colleague brought back some Euro coins from his trip to Germany. I was supposed to go, but well, due to the problems I faced, I was told that there is no more 'place' on the plane because one of the Bosses wanted to go.

In the end, it was not true because he did not go. I got the message that is, I am a failure in the company

Symbian Belle Part II

Remember what I said about the Belle's Screensaver? Well, Nokia's Beta Labs has their own screensaver, which is called the Nokia Sleeping Screen. A much improved over the normal screensaver, it shows the status of incoming SMS, missed calls, time & date and also, state of the phone's battery while still giving you a nice graphic screen. Also, it has a night mode which you can set and the screen graphics will schange accordingly so that the bright lights would not disturb your sleep. Yes, I sleep with the phone at my side.

In a nutshell, this is a screensaver which does not use much of the phone's battery.

And its free from Nokia's Beta Labs.

This is the bring Nokia n8 screensaver

This is the Nokia Sleeping Screen

This is how you set the Night Mode

This is how it shows when I don't take your calls or SMS

This is the phone's battery being charged

And so, with this free App, I am so happy with the Nokia Symbian Belle. It makes the n8 just there when you need it and keeps quite when you're busy with other things. It will not intrude into your life or cause you stress. That is, if no one calls me...

The Weather Report.
OK, now, the next App is this OVI Weather which I have forgotten if it came with Belle or additional installs. But still, its a nice App, provided you use WiFi. Since I don't think I have a data Plan, I would not check this outside. But whatever it is, the screens are beautiful to look at.

The WLAN Utility
WiFi status reports, searching for them and connecting have greatly improved. Sometimes, I swear that this App automatically updates itself every few seconds. But I could be wrong.

Chek Hup 2in1

For some reason I bought this 2in1 instead of the usual 3in1 Chek Hup White Coffee. Yeah, I am going to try cutting down on sugar even when I am already not liking sugar.

Surprisingly, they included a bag of sugar in the pack.

Raw. Brown. Sugar. No one in the office wanted it and so, I brought them home and put it in the fridge. And still, no one wanted them. So, into the bin it goes...
