Search anything inside...


bottles, broken, container, food, fridge, water

Family’s main fridge broke down on Thursday… it has been fixed a couple of times. Since I was on leave on that day coz I had my tooth pulled the day before, I took the opportunity to scout for a new fridge. I went Chan Furniture at Jalan Lintas, Kepayan, with one of my nephew.

Deciding for a replacement with the same size was quite difficult coz the prices are not very attractive… but at the end manage to decide after scouting for more than half hour inside the warehouse.

I ask for some discounts… manage to get some… but I believe it was a standard discount to make every client happy. So, I ask for free gift… and they offered me to choose between the custom water bottles or the food container… I choose the custom water bottles coz I have more use to it than the food container… man… they year is still young and spend so much money already… hope I can strike some 4D this year to recover all those money 😆

Replace the door if the lockset is broken

broken, door, lockset

One of our office door lock has been broken for ages… ages like 3 years?… We have informed and reminded the building management about it many times.

The reason they can’t fix the lock is ‘the existing lock is no longer available in the market’… if a new lockset is installed on the existing door, it will leave a big hole on it and they have to patch the bigger holes which will make the door ugly.

So what is the solution?… well, the solution is to replace the door… 😮

broken door lockset = replace door leaf…??? how sweet…

But to replace the door too, will take ages… The door is not that sophisticated… it is not even a custom door… it is not a Naples Fl custom doors… it is just a normal and simple door made of plywood… it is not made from hard wood or metal… come on, I’m sure you can get this door at any hardware shop without any problem… maybe you can even find it at the hardware shop behind my house…

Anyway, at last they fixed the whole problem by replacing the door leaf and install a new lockset… but the new door leaf looks expensive compared to the door next to it… now, should I ask them to replace the other door too so that the office environment looks balanced… it looks so unbalanced now… by just looking at the two doors you should be able to tell already…


Journey Around Sabah – dreaming of Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1

broken, Ericsson, iphone, journey, Sony, X1, XPERIA

OK… we are still stuck waiting for our vehicle to get into the service line… we are trying to jump queue since the service centre is fully booked… we are trying to get inside contacts to get into the line… wish us luck…

While waiting and hoping for that… I just want to share my experience with iPhone…

Apple iPhone created a craze around the globe when it was launched… although the size is quite huge, it still not bad when holds on your palm. I have the chance to play with iPhone recently when my boss asked me to configure its WiFi and his email in the iPhone.

I’m reluctant to accept iPhone… because why should I change since I have been using Windows Mobile PDA phone for more than 2 years and it serve fine with me… first with HP iPAQ HW6965 then HTC TyTN II… both with real keyboard and not with software keyboard. iPhone is using software keyboard.

Maneuvering the menu at first is quite difficult… must get use to the sliding thingy although I’ve tried the slider or shift in the HTC before but I’m just not comfortable with it. The iPhone response is fast… yea very fast!.. very impressive… much more responsive than my Windows Mobile PDA phones.

The 5 megapixels camera is super clear… the quality is as good as my Sony DSC-T200 8 megapixels camera. Holding the iPhone is very confortable… the width is just nice… and the thickness is thin… yes so thin with such power under its hood.

At the beginning iPhone and also other model of phones are locked to some operator only. But today, unlocked cell phones are easily available. Unlocked cell phones are much better than locked since you can do more things with it… and you can sell it back easier at higher price. You can have unlocked iPhone here in KK, but most of the time the seller will say it is ‘under water’ phone… meaning the phones are smuggle in and you will not get proper warranty.

With all the great things about iPhone, although after having fun with it for a couple of hours… I still prefer to continue using Windows Mobile PDA phone… and my next dream phone is the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1.

Wow… manage write that long post… with all the stress but with freedom from office work 😀

Journey Around Sabah – have to turn back!

beaufort, broken, fuel pump, journey, tenom

Damm… our vehicle is having a minor problem right now but it is causing a major delay. We have just filled it with diesel… and now it started jerking after some distance journey.

According to the mechanic it is caused by the main diesel fuel filter. The filter has been contaminated with water causing the diesel fuel pump not working 100% perfect. The water must have mixed with the diesel fuel!!!

It is well known that new vehicle using the new generation of diesel fuel pump is very sensitive with low quality diesel… the fuel pump will start protesting once it detected a slight mixture of water in the diesel fuel. There are news or story about Toyota or Nissan owner has to replace their fuel pump… and this new generation of fuel pump is not cheap… it can cost more than $10K… yea that spell more than ten thousands… and it is not covered in the warranty!!!

We can’t continue with our Journey Around Sabah… we were on our way to Tenom… we have to turn back and now we are stuck still in KK… This is a real bummer…

And now, our official workshop said they don’t have stock or spare for the fuel filter!!! Double damm for that… How the heck is that you can’t have a single spare for that important part while having a fleet of the same vehicles? Haiyooo… demand too high is it?

Now we have to run here and there to fill up forms so that we can proceed to service the vehicle at its ‘real’ workshop at Inanam!!! If like this, I’m not only getting stress but going to loose some weight… yea no need weight loss pill lah if like this…

OK, the most important is we are going to have a safe journey… I have to be positive with this.
