2014…another year

Time really doesn’t wait for any one. Looking back at 2013, there are things I definitely want to leave them behind. All the bad, all the downs, all the unhappy memories. I didn’t even achieve the one new year resolution of reading 20 books. I think I’ve got the 15. I guess let’s give it another try this year. Good thing I am almost done with a book so that will give me a head start for 2014.

What I want for 2014 is for my family to be happy and healthy and wish my Moo the best of luck to achieve his goals. All the best…


Not happy with my tablet case

I like to keep my gadgets protected with case and screen protector. Naturally I’ve got myself a case from eBay for my Samsung Note 10.1. It looks good at first with the front pads and allowing 360 degree rotation from the back cover. I’ve been using it for almost a year and did not suspect a thing until my boyfriend removed the tablet from its case. He was curious to see if it fits his Sony tablet. To my horror, when I flipped my tablet around and I saw a circle scratched around the Samsung logo. It’s not shinny any more :(. It scratched off the smooth shinny surface. The scratched mark was from the ring bit where you can turn your tablet 360 degree!! Ok, if you don’t look carefully you might not see the mark but I don’t like knowing it is there. I went on eBay and bought a simpler case. No more fancy stuff and keep to basic.

I’ll upload what the case looks like later. I’m not sure if others have experienced the same as me or I’m just bad luck :(.


Nothing….for almost 3 months

I’ve bought two mushroom growing kits from Victoria market almost 3 months ago. To my disappointment not a single mushroom has grew out from the pack. I’ve followed instructions from the man apart from watering bit, I admit I sometimes forgot to water them. Anyway, I hid them under the sink in the bathroom away from sun light and water before I go to shower. Apart from a thin white mould on top and some gooey mouldy dirt bit on the side, I have nothing.

Hm….I don’t know what to expect really. Thought I’ve given it enough patience? The guy said guarantee to grow but cannot say when. Man, I just want my mushroom!


Goodbye MSN

Today marks the last day of MSN and then we will be forced to upgrade to Skype. I still remember the pre-installed Window Messenger in Windows. But of course, I wanted something more fancy so downloaded the one off the web. One of the attractive features from MSN is that you can share custom emoicons. Many other users (I’ve read off forums) stayed with MSN due to this very feature. Questions were asked in the Skype community forum about bringing features over to Skype but custom emoicons seem to the main focus, but so far, no response from Skype or maybe I have not searched hard enough.

No more changing name according to the mood at the time, no more changing name just because I can. The status bar is just not the same! I can understand you don’t want to divert effort into maintaining two programs especially one can help to make profits (buying credits to make calls) while the other one is offered free. Sigh. Another piece of teenage memory gone.

I’ll miss you, MSN.
