Do you still remember when you first learned about computer? For me it was like a hurricane attacking all schools in the country. Every student wanted to get their hands on the keyboard and start typing their works which they can see on the screen in front of them. Storing their work was another thing. I used to own a few memory disks also known as the floppy disks which was a big black flat piece of magnetic disk that stores 1.2 MB of data. After a few years later, I remember storing some data into a slightly reliable 3.5 inch floppy disk which came in hard plastic case. Some are still using it these days. But, isn't it amazing how things change from time to time?

Ralph is quite well versed in this matter more than I do. I know every computer has its own hard disk and the purpose it to store data such as pictures, songs and some works. Well, that was all that I know. When it comes to gadgets, he is a real enthusiast. He loves tiny and complicated gadgets which most of the time I do not know what they are for. Smileys

Recently, he was lucky to get a promotional flash drive from one his friends. Well, the promotional usb drive which he got is kind of special. It is wrapped with leather on the outside with a company logo laser etched into it. And, it could store 2 GB of data. Isn't that interesting? He mentioned that there is one company which can create or design almost anything to make one's flash drive outshines the rest. They are pros in designing custom flash drive and they provide a LifeTime warranty to its products! In fact, his friend's company has been dealing with this flash drive company in almost every promo that they had in the past. The outcomes were outrageous. People are a lot happier to be given a Promo Jump Drive than an ordinary pen these days. It is indeed a very good idea after all considering the world is always on the go. And as for me, I would love to get a Pink flash drive with a Hello Kitty on it!!! Smileys

I had a major headache yesterday and I spent the whole evening sleeping on my comfortable bed!!! Smileys Ralph was right by my side taking care of me. Thank you… Smileys While he was doing so he played his favorite PC game, WoW or also known as World of Warcraft.

I notice that PC games are just fun to play sometimes. Ralph loves to play those games whenever he has free time at home. He can stay for hours in front of his PC and he often talks to himself like as if he is personally in the game itself. Funny right? Well, that is what most gamers out there often do, I think. His passion for WoW had almost reached its limit when one day he was playing online with other gamers.

He bought an account from a gamer who offered him a very good deal. But, later on he found out that his account had been compromised. He became slightly panicked. He did not know what to do. He contacted several MMOs via emails. And, later he found out that the account which he bought was basically a “hacked” account. He felt really sad because he had paid quite a lot for that. Smileys

After a month or so without WoW, several MMOs suggested him to look for a reliable website which offers wow account for sale. He directly checked it out and he found out that this website really does what it said and promised. He realized the importance of having a secured account before he begins his next challenge. He wants to ensure that all his payment and his personal data are highly secured when he is playing his favorite game. That puts him in a real peace of mind. I personally did not know about this until he told me the whole story. I guess lesson learned this time round. Happy gaming! Smileys

This is what the outrageous British comedy, COUPLING all about.

I, for one, am a huge fan of Brit-coms and Coupling is one of the funniest sitcoms that have made me laugh more than anything else. It's hilarious!!!

Two's company, three's a crowd... so what do you do with six?

British version of Friends.

On average, men and women think about sex every six seconds. Shorten that to every second, and you've got Coupling. It's more than just a one night stand! When a couple gets together, it's never just the two of them - they also bring baggage - and Susan and Steve are no exception. Their baggage is a crowd of best friends and exes who talk about all aspects of sex and relationships on their never-ending quest to find true love. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps...

Susan Walker (Sarah Alexander) is a beautiful go-getter with an uninhibited attitude who used to date Patrick Maitland (Ben Miles), the sextet's charismatic, cocky player, London's king of conquests - a guy who's just too cool to worry about being smart.

Attractive Sally Harper (Kate Isitt) is a beauty therapist who is Susan's unashamedly vain best friend, who aggressively battles aging with heavy doses of moisturizer and men - including Patrick.

Meanwhile, Steve Taylor (Jack Davenport), while getting together with Susan, can't seem to shake loose from his vivacious and slightly vacuous ex-girlfriend Jane Christie (Gina Bellman), a woman supremely confident in her ability to seduce anyone of either sex, and who refuses to be dumped unless she's the one doing the dumping.

Jeff Murdoch (Richard Coyle) is Steve's "porn buddy" who is, in equal parts, obsessed and bewildered by actual sex; charming in his way, but with an uncanny ability to say the wrong thing at the worst possible time. He works in the same office as Susan, with whom he had a disastrous and unsuccessful one-night fling.

With a new guy on the scene, a baby on the way, commitment in the air, and love on the horizon, the dynamics of the six friends are definitely changing....

If you like Friends, I guess you'll love this and if you don't, try it anyway, British comedy is the best after all!

Do you have any favorite British sitcoms?

and it reminds me of these special, local delicacies from Ramadan Bazaar.

Nasi Kerabu. I was pretty shocked when I first saw blue rice, in Kelantan.

Very, very spicy chicken rice. *running nose* *sweating* *screaming for cold water*


By the way, there's a restaurant serves a variety of popular Middle Eastern dishes at Hartamas Square.

Sawarabina Restaurant.

I love their...

Chicken Kabsa - one of the most popular dishes in Saudi Arabia


Kebab! Smileys

To all my Muslim friends and readers, wishing you a joyous Iftar!!!

and 536 posts.

Sometimes I go back into my blog archives to find a certain post and I end up reading my own blog as if it was someone else's. It's hard to believe that two years ago on August 20, 2007, I posted a really lame post that indicated I hadn't a clue what the heck I was doing on this blog. My posts had no comments and no readership in those days. But, so much has happened since those early days! I can't believe people actually read my blog and care what I have to say.

A year ago today, I totally missed my own blogging anniversary! Time really does fly. Today marks the second anniversary of starting this humble blog and this is the 537th post on this blog!

Of course, this blog would be a lot less fun without all of your generously supportive comments/emails, all the laughs, friendship, and inspiration you have given me. What keeps me coming back to blogging day after day is YOU!!! Thank you to all my amazing blogging friends that have been here from the beginning, and also my new ones. It has meant so much to me! I couldn't have done it without you guys... so thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!! I definitely appreciate that. And it's probably why I stay.

And now, everybody sing!

Happy Blogoversary to you, Happy (I can't hear you) Blogoversary to you... *LOL*
