Pretty normal stuff this week, except for a couple of false fire alarm ringing in my lodge. The first one was when we were all having dinner. If not mistaken, the alarm comes from one of the room from the 1st floor.

Yup. Our will to survive is very strong. Even with the risk of being burnt to death in the building, our will to eat for survival pushes us to stay in the building and....continue eating.

But the second alarm really get on my nerves. It rang at 4.30AM on Thursday morning. 4.30 in the morning! Who the heck does stuff that involves smoke at 4.30 in the morning???!!!

The firemen even had to visit us at this wee hour.

Luckily that is a normal false alarm. I would whack each and everyone of those firemen with an axe if they played some techno music and start stripping.

Besides that, I made my own medicine this week! It's a substance which is a relative of the famous Panadol, but not that popular in Malaysia because Panadol and its other siblings like Acti-Fast and Milidon conquer the market. That's right, give a big round of applause to my newly synthesized aspirin!!

Surprisingly, this thing is pretty easy to make. All you need to do is add salicyclic acid with acetic anhydride in a 100 degree water bath to form acetylsalicyclic acid (aspirin). Then just have to filter it, and hey presto, aspirin! So the next time you have a headache, save money by contacting me. I can make this thing in around 2 hours :D

I have never been so proud of my beloved Man Utd before. Two weeks ago, Man Utd fend off Chelsea's pressure by winning the Barclays Premier League for the second successive time, 17th time overall.

10 days after that, the club travelled to Moscow to win one of the most prestigious cup in the world - European Cup. The cup that clubs all over Europe are fighting for. So it's not just a matter of national event anymore. Win this one and you're the best in Europe.

Now, i won't say best in the world, like America. Win the NBA championship, and you're the "world basketball champion". Win the NFL and you're the best team in the world. What logic is that? America = world? Heck, their "football" does not even involve as much foot as their hand!

I think i've been writing out of topic already. Anyway, as i was saying, Man Utd is in the final, against Chelsea again. Watch the video if you havent watch it, or just want to rewatch it. Don't mis the goal by the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo! Superb goal, even i cant believe he can be that good.

Yup, thanks to Terry (or the pitch as the matter of fact), Man Utd clinched their third European Cup, also my first!

So Man Utd is the Double Champion, winning the cup for the first time since 1999, in a way almost as exciting as the previous one. In the 1999 Finals, Man Utd scored 2 goals in the last 3 minutes of the game to beat Bayern Munich 2-1. Here's a video, watch it to decide which one is more nerve-wrecking:

Here's the videos of the players bringing the cup back to home soil and to Manchester:

So there you go, this explains why my love for this club is so big. A club with so much success, history and tradition, Not much clubs can put themselves on par with Manchester United.

I'm proud to be a Manchester United supporter!

Recently, a 7.8 scale earthquake had just hit China, killing almost 30,ooo people and made 5 million people homeless. Headlines like "Children scramble out of rubble only to find themselves orphans" and "Nearly five million homeless" shows how big the impact is, physically as well as mentally.

So, for those of you who are able, please show some love by donating generously to aid those people in China. The funds from Jet Li's One Foundation will be fully channeled to the Red Cross Society of China. The website allows you to donate through paypal, so if you happen to gain ads money through blogging entering your paypal account, there's a way for you to make good use of your money. Although the website is in chinese, if you press the button with "paypal" on it, you will be directed to the paypal website, wehre you can continue with ur donation.

For those of you who do not know how to read chinese (like me :P), you can always visit the American Red Cross website. You can see a link saying "make a secure, online donation" if you scroll down. You do need a credit/debit card for this though.

As for those of you who cant afford to donate, shame on you dun feel bad. PRAY. Remember to keep those victims in your prayers. Pray that God will ease their pain and sufferings, and things will start to go uphill from now on.

Here's a video that i would like to share with you all before i end this post:

After a long time of not blogging, it's time for me to brag blog about my new toy. Behold my new Sony Ericsson K850i!!

Ok, this pic sucks because i'm still using my old W700i's 2MP camera. But no worries, now i have a 5MP camera phone! Here's a better picture of it.

It's Sony Ericsson's latest K series mobile, a Cybershot phone with a 5MP camera, and also a VGA camera for video calling purposes. Yeah, the so called 3G. Some pics taken with the camera:

Click on it to view it's full resolution.

Besides the camera, another specialty of this phone is it's half touch screen mode. Usually for a phone, there will be button for options like "select" and "back". This phone doesn't. Instead, touch sensitive device is installed under the screen, so doing selections are by pressing on the bottom part of the screen. you can see how it works from this video:

Another thing is that this phone comes with a motion sensor. Basically, it can detect ur phone's position, and change the view of the screen, just like the video above (if you watched it). Plus a game installed with the phone also uses motion sensor to play:

So you must be thinking, where the hell did i get so much money to afford such phone. Well, i dont.

Actually, i spend AUD30 per month on handphone prepaid credits. with that, i got AUD150 worth of credit, which i spends only half of them. So i decided to switch to postpaid cap plan. For AUD29 per month, i got AUD120 worth of credit. Plus, i got this phone for AUD10 per month for 24 months, making it worth AUD240. RM720 may sound like a big deal of a money, but the price for this phone in Malaysia is RM1500-Rm1600. retail price in Australia is around AUD1000. So i still think i got myself a good deal.

But that's not just the reason i decided to get this phone. I blog. Blog needs picture. Without a digital camera, my phone is my only way to take picture. But the 2MP camera i have right now is...well, just look at the first pic and you will know what i'm saying. Try comparing the picture i have last time and those i captured with my new phone. The difference is so huge. Now i know i'm satisfied with the picture quality :)

And mum, hope u will keep ur lecture on spending money short and simple. I'll be sending you Mothers Day wishes soon ;)
