I just got my Brompton Tool Kit,It costs RM280.Thanks Pak Saffian for your kind assistance.This is one great example of good design and I love the simplicity of the design and its functions/applications.Here is the link to my previous posting related to this subject.
Yes,they are!This is my first time seeing red tulip grown in winter.Thank you my friend Guus from Holland who sent me the photo as shown on the right.According to him,these tulips were grown in a green house.Do you know where tulips came from originally?
To my suprise,tulips came from Turkey.In the same say,rubber trees came from South America and we Malaysian are growing them in great abundance and making a lot of moey.
How about the oil in Middle East?The lis goes on and on.
I have been to Holland four times since 1987 and my recent one was in April,2012.From my trips,I have learnt that the people of Holland are very ingenious in engineering and green technology and they were the one who built up the British merchant navy and ships.
When it comes to flowers,waterways and cycling,I gave Holland five stars!!!!!
Thanks to Guus for sharing the photo of the winter tulips with me.
This photo below was taken on April 29, 2012 using aPanasonic DMC-LX5 during my recent trip to Holland.Many thanks to Guus and Marjolein for your kind hospitality.
It is all by design...these chairs caught my attention and I decided to sit here waiting for my meeting time at JKR Midvalley.Later I ordered a cold drink..How many of you are looking forward to see new phones from Nokia or Blackberry? I bet there will be more interest in the next iPhone! What makes the difference?
To be prepared for my coming Aamteur Radio Exam on 15th Dec,2011 I have to attend a two-day course at Waves Communication in Sri Gombak today.One of the lecturers that really amazed me is Alex and his callsign is 9M2RI.He got his licence more than 50 years ago.I guess he is 70+.
Today,he gave us a lecture on radio receiver,transmitter and antenna.Even though he graduated in Arts,but his passion made him learn a lot of radio electronics and communication.The way he types his Morse code is faster than I type this blog!The most fascinating thing about him is his DIY radio equipments and he brought along his DIY apparatus to demonstrate the principles of radio.
Most people got into troubles because they said,'Yes,I do'.Usually my embedded default answer is No,but today I said YES-may be the date 11.1.11 made me disoriented! At my age I could not afford to say I do most of the time-otherwise I will get into troubles.
After listening to Sam's experience using YES 4G,I was convinced to give it a try.There were a lot of changes I saw when my son and me walked the Jalan Bukit Bintang from Pavilion to Lot 10.On arrival,I saw big screen promoting Yes Life!My first impression,I think YTL got it right.
Today is my first day,so I have no detailed comments yet. By the way,may have feedback from those using YES4G.
Before the cellular phone came to my kampung~about a decade ago ,only a few houses have fixed line telephones.Now,almost everyone in my kampung has a mobile phone.My 76 years old mother also carries a mobile phone.The cheaper Nokia mobile phones and prepaid phones have changed the way people communicated-some good and some bad.
As they say,technology is neutral.It all depends on the users!Just look at the photo of a simple kampung sundry shop.The wall has been transformed into a big marketing space by a telco.By the way,it seems that any good visible space along the way and even kampung roads are taken over by advertisements.
Yesterday, I read an advertorial about this particular radio as shown on the right.I cut and pasted the photo in my moleskine notebook and wrote a personal note about my encounter with it in the early 60's.Most of you who read my blog(with the exception of Pak Idrus , Pak Ku and other Pak bloggers) will not have seen a big radio like a box with transistors/valves inside the radio.Techincally,I know very little because we young boys were not allowed to touch it.
The school in front of my house had a clubhouse for students to relax,meet,read newspapers and listen to the radio.It was located in front of my house,so I visited it quite often even though my age then was a single digit number.My house did not have a radio.My favourite programs then were Lagu Permintaan and Drama Minggu Ini.My memory on these subject are quite blur;may be Pak Ku and Pak Idrus can elaborate better for the benefits of younger generations.My house back then has no electricity and no telephone.So, the radio is the only electronic equipment that I knew of at that time. Later, in the mid 60's only my dad bought a Philip radio for us to listen in our house.In 1963, my mother was invited to KL to see the first Malaysian TV at Stadium Negara.Personally,my first time watching a black and white TV when I was admitted to a boarding school SDAR,Tanjung Malim in January,1965.By the way,I loved The Fugitive!Today kids have all the luxury of electronic gadgets that my peers never dream of.
Currently,I have a small Sony portable radio which I bought many,many years ago.The aerial had collapsed and it is in bad condition.That is the reason why this vintage-look radio attracts my attention.For your info, this product is not available yet in Malaysia but I already registered myself to get one when it arrives at our shore.When? I don't have a clue.You can call 03-22822812.
According to my learned friend in radio,his advice was to buy a car radio and use it in my house.I am not as techie as himself to get myself entangled in some wries with additional speakers to install.A simple old fashion radio is good enough for me.I can wait..
If any medium size restaurant like Koptiam,KFC,Mcdonald and others could provide wi-fi services to their customers(or whoever who sits next to their restaurant),I don't know why can't a shopping complex does the same thing?There must be something 'missing' that I don't understand.Can someone shed more light on this subject matter?Thank you.
I am writing this from a chicken rice restaurant at KB Mall in Kota Bharu using my EeePC Asus 701.
Yes, but one has to subscribe to a wireless broadband plan offered by the telco.In fact,there is no such thing as free lunch...By the way I need one of these things to get me conneected when I am away from home/office. -via my Treo from Pondok Beris Bachok,Kelantan
