Embunan Bersinar

Ning gave a sneak preview her latest single here... and dare I say, it has SMASH HIT written all over it! She will premier the song live at Zoom In, this Sunday. Betcha wish you had them tickets now eh? hehe...

Embunan Bersinar

Lyrics : Tess
Song : Aylwin Santiago

Azab dan sengsara
Duka yand terlara
Mengajariku menjadi dewasa

Lapar dan dahaga
Hidup nan derita
Sering menguji
Ketabahan Hati

Bagaikan musafir
Dipadang pasir yang sepi
Kembara tiada henti

Mencari haluan jiwa ini
Percayakan mimpi
Jalanan ku harungi
Bertemankan harapan
Akhirnya ditemukan
Hamparan Mawar
Embunan Bersinar

Disini bersemi
Hidup nan terindah
Sendu dihati ku langkahi sudah

Bagaikan musafir
Dipadang pasir yang sepi
Kembara tiada henti


Yang..... hilangkan terbit kembali
Yang.... jatuh bisa bangun berlari
Ku mengerti kini
Harus sabar menanti
Ku teguhkan hati...............

Hamparan Mawar
Embunan Bersinar

How to install a doorknob

Simple-to-follow steps... just it case you ever get stuck in such a situation.












1. Install the strikeplate with the two screws.



2. Position the deadlatch into its place and screw into place



3. The door knob comes in two halves, which slide together and are joined by a pair of long machine screws. Obviously, the outside knob is the one with the key and the inside knob has a button. MAKE SURE TO PLACE IT CORRECTLY... Otherwise it is as good as having no door at all!, hehe...



4. Twist in the rose insert into place



5. Then, lock in the inside knob



6. Don't forget to test your work with the key and ensure that both handles twist easily, the knobs don't rattle up against the door (if this happens the screws are too loose) and the door cannot be pushed or pulled open (from either side) without using the handle.



7. Voila! Your brand new doorknob... now, who says that DIESELFREAK can't do 'man's' job properly, hehe...

Unlucky star

Today may very well be my most unluckiest day of my life... bar none! Even Lemony Snicket himself cannot to these series of unfortunate events:

1. Woke up late this morning (always not a good sign)

2. About to head out to work, discovered that my doorknob refused to open! Despite all the push, twist and shoves the door refused to budge one bit.

3. Getting desparate (and downright sweaty)... brought in screwdriver, hammer

4. Still wont budge. texted boss to say running a bit late

5. Finnally, door opened but doorknob busted. Lucky for the grilled door. Ran to LRT station

6. When you thought it couldnt get any worse, LRT delayed... arrived at office 1/2 hour late

7. Afternoon... went out to buy replacement doorknob. Suddenly it rained heavily on the way back, got wet

8. Almost end-of-day, boss gives yet another last minute assignment. About to do but suddenly my PC crashed! restarted for the bajillionth time... same outcome. This time royally screwed

9. Boss says no excuses, cuz bigger boss wants by tomorrow morning. As such forced to use backup laptop. Struggled to finish the assignment while everyone happyly clocking of... Sooo not happening

10. Finally completed the task, though far from perfect. Sure kena marah one esop pagi. Clocked out at 9pm, the last person to leave the department

11. Arrive LRT station 45 minutes later and guess what? it rained heavily again... stuck at LRt for another 15 minutes

12. Finally reached home. Realized i forgot to bring back my new doorknob.

I'm not sure if this is karma for past wrong-doings (if it is i seek forgiveness to anyone, everyone that I have crossed... sorry ) , or simply an amusement from the powers that be (I hope not), but all i know for sure that If anything like this happens again, I'm gonna loose my head. Sigh... perhaps some shopping therapy would help.

The upgrade

After having 'kantoi' by a friend (Yusras, I didn’t realise you have psychic powers, hehe...) I figured might as well introduce you to my latest gadgetry conquest: the MOTOROKR E8. I have been meaning to change my ol' celly of three years for quite some time know... having seen a number of my friends switching, as well as the fact that wear and tear (read: missing buttons) have finally caught up with my trusty SLVR.

So, during the weekend before Raya break, I found myself at the Motorola store in KLCC and dwindled my decision to two finalists, the RAZR v2 and the ROKR. The latter finally won my affections (haha), as its delivers precisely what I need (specifically mp3 player capabilities) packaged in an oh-so-sexy form factor. Thanks to this phone, my daily commune to office are now infinitely more fun, courtesy of Her Madgesty's sticky sweet tunes keeping me company, hehe...


Winner of c|net best of CES 2008, other bragging rights of this phone is the 'you-must-see-it-to-believe-it' mode shifting keypad, which virtually transforms from phone to mp3 player at a tap of a finger. Plus, I no longer need to worry about any missing buttons, cuz there ait none! Now thats what I call an upgrade,hehe...

Dirty Thirty revealed!



Ladies and gentlemen, behold the first preview pics of Diesel's oh-so-coveted Dirty Thirty jeans. There are only 30,000 pairs of these babies, and are available for STRICTLY ONE DAY ONLY (10 October 2008 to be precise) at its 160 odd stores worldwide, as well as its online store. As if that weren't enough, they will be on sale for only £30, €30 or ¥300 (you get the picture), a mere fraction of what they are truly worth. Expect overnight camping, long queues and scrums people!

The limited edition jeans come in two of Diesel's most iconic styles, Matic for girls and Heeven for guys.

According to Diesel, the jeans will have "a one off 'dirty wash' treatment with side abrasion and hand-made repair patch; the back patch will celebrate Diesel's 30 years of love and fun with the words 'Dirty Thirty' and 'xXx'; side embroidery will state the dates 1978-2008; buttons will be customised with 'Diesel 1978' date of birth."


ps;- These jeans will be available at the Diesel store in Forum Shopping Mall, Singapore at SGD78! Fingers crossed, if all goes to plan, I might yet be able to nab one of these babies...
