Half a Pounder

McD's is at it again. First the triple cheese burger, which is rather meh. Now its the double quarter pounder. Nothing new as I'm getting my double quarter pounder fix(and sometimes triple quarter pounder) at Wendys. But since I'm a sucker for beef burgers, and had once sworn loyalty to McD (don't laugh, I know allot of people sworn loyalty to some brand, like mac fags and droid fags alike) I thought what the heck, after all it's been a really long time since I've visited the clown's restaurant. (30 days McD hiatus is a really long time)

Looks mouth watering ain't it? It's amazing what a little work over gimp does to pictures. And this pic was taken with my good ol Samsung SGH-G400. Dumb phones last surprising long, just like dumb people.

And it cost RM14.80 for Medium McValue Lunch (after tax). So, the verdict? It taste EXACTLY the same like your regular quarter pounder. I've already expected this from past experience with the triple cheese burger. Comparative to Wendys (which taste awesome), its dryer, which isn't surprising at all as Wendy's patties are cooked on the spot when order are placed unlike McD's which has its ingredients precooked and stored in little yellow-orange drawers. Since McD's have to deal with mini Somalia from 1200 to 1500, making fresh hot meals at the expense of the growing hungry and angry lunch crowd is out of the question. McD's also throw in a cheese Mcshaker for large meal, something that I avoided.

I saw a really good bargain the other day at Mid Valley. But I was rather reluctant to fork out that much for a premium netbook while compaq laptops cost about only half as much.
Then again, I don't really need another laptop. My current 15 incher is just right on my lap, but lugging around such a big hardware can be tedious when it comes to traveling. And because my laptop is suffering from multiple hardware failures, dead DVD drive, failing hard drive, battery which only last 1 hour, max, I'm very tempted to put down my laptop. Not to kill it though, but rather make it a desktop replacement and get a netbook for traveling needs. Not to mention that the netbook is advertised to last 5 hours on a single charge. That's 2 extra hours compared to my laptop when the battery is still brand new.

And, the netbook is made from aluminum, you've probably guessed what it is from the poorly masked picture.

To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

JEN 123

This post it for the driver of the Yellow Mini with the registration plate bearing JEN 123 whom I almost ran into (without knowing) just 20-30 minutes ago. And.... I'm not sorry because I DID NOT SEE you. And do you want to know why?? Your headlight is off YOU STUPID CUNT/FAG. Who in the right mind will be driving along a dark road at 10PM with their HEAD LIGHTS OFF??? I know, YOU! because you don't have a right mind!

RM40.76 per night

That's how much my home cost. Being a middle class working citizen, having a home doesn't really mean much other then having a place to bunk after a days work. After all, we are out of the house for at least 8 hours. So, the house to me is more like a hotel. I only use it at night. For RM40.76/night it's a pretty good deal.

It pays for:
  • 3 room apartment (with kitchen)
  • 24 hour security (it means there's a guard at the entrance the whole time)
  • in door parking for 2 cars
  • heated shower
  • 5Mbps HSBB by Unifi
  • the use of common facilities, pool, gym, broken sauna, indoor badminton court (advance booking required), tennis court, playground, games room (which is just an empty room with a mahjong table)
  • 5units (assuming it's 5 meter cube) of water/month. Additional charge applicable for overuse

It does not cover:
  • house keeping

Not Safe For Children

This blog is once again not safe for children.

Previously I'd turn the adult content filter option on in the blog settings. However having to click on the "I understand and wish to continue" button every single time I want to post a new entry in my blog is way too tedious. Furthermore how effective is it anyway? It doesn't stop minors from visiting adult sites, especially when they wanted to watch smut in the first place. Plus, there's no minors in my facebook, except for my niece who have yet learn to read.

Don't get your hopes up if you are looking for smut in the blog though. I won't be posting pictures of butt naked ladies or guys.

USB vagina

The people from the land of the rising sun has never fail to surprise me. They brought us ramen, they brought us robot dogs, they pioneered personal music players, they even have comic books depicting child pornography. Now they brings us a USB vagina so you can fuck your computer, literally.

The above is actually a game controller for sex games, namely 3D custom girl. Otaku rejoice, you can finally make sweet love to your virtual girl. Release date: 25 November 2011 a month ahead of xmas, perfect timing.

Good Night Sweet Prince, Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

We bid farewell to a visionary, pioneer of home/personal computing, ruthless businessman (that's how Pirates of the Silicon Valley poetry him). What I remembered him most is how he killed the floppy drive by not having any floppy disc drive in iMacs. It took the world by surprise as back then we are still pretty attached to that magnetic sensitive and fungus prone storage media. Who would've thought to make CDs bootable? I still remembered the steps needed to install windows in a new computer back then.
1) insert boot disc
2) type cd d: (if the cd drive is D)
3) setup

Then there's the iPhone. The first ordinary-person-friendly-smartphone which is affordable. Sure, the samsung galaxy s 2 is way better then the iPohne 4 and cheaper, but that's how market matures, like how IBM clones finally beat macintosh in their own game. Before there was an iPhone, smartphones was only within the reach of businessmen or really rich and spoilt kids. For example the Sony Ericsson P series smartphones cost close Rm3000 during launch. Take a walk in any shopping mall in the Klang Valley today and you'll see more iPhones then an SE Experia.
