Samsung SyncMaster 931BW

Well..kinda don’t have anything good to share, so here’s another useless post; about my new monitor. Ermm…not so new really…it had been about 3 or 4 weeks I guess. My previous Philips 107E5 CRT had failed me after years of dedicated services. I do notice however, maybe it had a chance to be revived by sending it to the repair guy, but I skip that and gave it to my ex-housemate instead. Not that I feel I’m too rich or whatsoever; it’s just suffice to say that I didn’t think the monitor will last long enough after repair…the problem will keep on coming (you know…the “repair-broke again” cycles). After some thoughts and selling some of my internal organs (I don’t have a job yet~~~), I’ve decided to splash my little (and hard earned) cash on Samsung SyncMaster 931BW 19″ LCD monitor.

My Own Domain and Web Host

I’m thinking of buying my own domain and a shared web hosting package. Before anyone going any further on that, let me stressed out that it’s not because I want to start active seriously at blogging (hell, never did actually); it’s just because there are something that I currently studying needs to be done in a real server environment (the practical part). Blogging and other unrelated stuff can come after that. Actually, it had been a long time I want to do so but it keeps halting for too many unpredicted reasons (laziness is one of the reasons but it’s not unpredicted­čśŤ ).Currently been thinking about a couple of options such as IPServerOne or ServerFreak. I’ll let anyone know if there are any update.

Job Carnival 2008

Today I had the chance to attend Job Carnival 2008 that been held at Plaza Angsana, Johor Bahru. Well, for those who don’t know, it’s kinda a carnival that provide information related to job seeking, seminar, law awareness in working, walk-in interview, and many more. The event been held by the Ministry of Human Resources (Malaysia) in conjunctions with many private sector’s companies. As a job seeker myself, I attend the carnival to drop my CV in every booth that I went; even to the booth that only want to hire an engineer­čśŤ . Among the notable organization that participate (as I can remember) were Iskandar Reginal Development Authority, Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn. Bhd., Sime Darby Bhd, and Jusco. Well, also attend some walk in interview after I had run out of resume to drop, but I don’t think they’ll pick me because I attend the interview of a Regional Manager position (lol). But, what’s done is done and just praying it will go well in the end. If you’re interested in knowing when the carnival will be held at your place, do check the official Ministry of Human Resources (Malaysia) site. Owh…at some point, I’m glad I attend the carnival, because I had the chance to see/stalk/flirt with many hot and beautiful chicks that also looking for a job (or offering one)­čśŤ

Waiting List

In this nearest time, there are a couple of things that I’ve been waiting anxiously or maybe just eagerly. Sort of like waiting for my first child to be born. Ahahahahha…okay, that’s kind of excessive, sorry for that. Without further ado, I present to you the list itself:

  • Waiting for my interview appointment.

    I’ve already applying for some positions by sending my CV to the appropriate parties and already learn my lesson from 2 years ago (didn’t have the patient to wait for a reply); I’m now waiting with more patient than ever. At the same time, I do realize opportunities wait for no one, so I’m not taking anything for granted; I’m still finding another possible job opportunities without too reliant on the already made applications.

EURO 2008 Final Group Draw

It had been decided…the group for the EURO next year. It’s really interesting to know the group early, so that all the teams involved can make early preparations for the tournament that only second behind the FIFA’s World Cup in terms of prestige. It’s even easier for football fans worldwide to start making speculations. I really hope that the upcoming tournament will be as interesting as possible…something that personally I didn’t get for the EURO 2004. It’s not like I hate Greece (I respect them for their continuous effort to become previous champions nonetheless), it’s just their play style is somehow out of the ordinary to the norm of the competition. By referring to the next year’s group stage, I believe many fans would agree with me that group C is a group of death. Hey…I even wondering for a while after knowing the draw that maybe all the group C’s team would say “This is hell~~“. Personally, it’s hard for me to say (predict) for sure who had the chance to uplift the trophy this time. France, Italy, and Germany is among the big names in my mind right now to be a serious challenger but at this stage, names means nothing. Below is the final draw and looking forward for it next year~~ Continue reading

My Current Status…(III)

It had been a very busy month for me. Maybe because in a few weeks from now, I’ll finish (graduate) my post-graduate studies. At time like this, it seems I’m much busier than a prime minister. Had to finish writing and checking my thesis, preparing for thesis defense, making presentation slides, and all at the same time maintaining my cluttered life (it’s kinda hard really…to manage so many things in one go). Due to that, I missed so many things/events happened around me; most notably many of my friends birthday (forgot to wish at the exact time; I really dislike to use ‘belated’ :-P), meeting/hanging with my friends during Eid, watching new movies at cinema, and spending most of my holiday with my parents. Aih…I do hope this pattern will end soon though… Continue reading
