Opera Rocks

Just when I was furious about Firefox "turtling" my hectic life, I gave another try to Opera! Why another? It is because two years back I used it and it had an ugly interface and was slow too... 

Now not only the interface is nice but the speed is way faster than the once champion Firefox. I opened Firefox last night and after that opened Opera. Guess what? Opera appeared first with my auto sign-in of email! Nowadays Firefox's loading of GMail is pretty slow, not to say IE (I have abandoned it donkey years ago). You will always see a message if you don't have Google Chrome whereby it prompts you to use it with GMail to make your life faster. But shame on it. It is still way slower than Firefox. Many times, I really don't understand why advertisements can be so misrepresentative! Just like last night I went shopping in Mid Valley. I was so thirsty and went in Carrefour to get a bottle of Bliss (some yogurt drink). When I came out I only realized there was a big booth of Nestle selling all the Nestle yogurt beverages, claiming to be "best buy" things like that. I was kind of regret (I know I am like an aunty). But when I looked up the price tag only I knew it was more expensive than Carrefour! You see how subtle can businessmen be. 

You dare, you win!

This is the principle to survive and stand out. 

Okay hell of rantings. Back to my topic. Opera rocks! 

Nice nice interface...

Another story of a subtle product-Windows 7. I heard it was a repacking of Windows XP and Windows Vista. Interface with Windows Vista, but operating system with Windows XP. WTH is that.... I recalled another sarcastic story given by a passionate nature lover. Whereby she said, our processor speed just relies on the chipset, the subtle thing is that the manufacturer keeps changing the size of it, forcing us to ditch our whole bulky computer just to get a new one with faster speed.

There are more and more subtle stories.  Suddenly recall, in business world, there is another big repackaging-Securitization

An End of Turbulence

Woohoo.... No more exam until the end of this year!!!

Time to retrieve dusty books on the shelve, I know I will love them, as I have been loving them!!!

Went to watch Whiteout and Fourth Kind... Love both of them... I really love Whiteout that genre of movie... Really suit my taste... Whereas for Fourth Kind, it says it might influence our life after watching.. Well, I am wondering about the incident. For me I don't challenge its truthfulness, but about the logic, until now, with my shallow and limited scientific knowledge, I am still wondering how can it happen..

Interesting... There are so many things in this world that are bizarre!

Reflection on a Cliche

Pondering how true this cliche is in our real life...

Top of the world at this moment

and upside down the next moment...

A Place Full of Memories

A serene place like this,

with palatable food like this,

form a sweet memory etched in my heart ~~~

Something We Normal People Don't Challenge

This Germany couple (her husband was not there when we talked with her), drove all the way from Germany. They stopped at countless countries!!! This is an army truck that is full furnished with whatever they need. They have stopped in Cheranting for a few months. This is the place they love...

I wonder if they will/can still be back to their homeland, considering their age...

They did enlighten me... Even they are old, they explore, they learn, they try, they do things they like... We Asians dare not try and are not willing to learn... When are we going to get rid of our BOXES?

I wish I can be evil daring too, one day!!

Collecting Another Toy

Damn... I only managed to collect four contour glasses from McD which are of purple, blue, charcoal and sparkling clear...

Change the target now to this toy... Is it possible? 40 stamps?!
