Cameron Highlands, 24th October 2006

It was the first day of Hari Raya.











Since my parents were in KL, we decided to go to Cameron Highlands for a one day trip as all the hotels were fully booked.
Altho I know it'll be a very tiring trip, I've got no complains due to the fact that my parents are aging and they very seldom come to KL for holidays. I knew I can never repay them enough for the sacrifices they have made while bringing me up.

We started our journey at 6.00am. Reached Tapah @ 7.15am. We were halfway up the hill when we and many others had to stop due to a fallen tree trunk in the middle of the road. Thanks to the Orang Asli's who cut the tree trunks, we managed to continue our long, winding journey. It took us one hour to reach Ringlet and then Tanah Rata. On the way to Brinchang, we stopped at Cameron Valley Tea House. We took a very nice photo overseeing the hills.


We continued our journey to BOH Tea Plantation at Sg Palas. Everyone was dizzy when we arrived. I regretted for not stopping more frequently, as my parents are not young anymore, and couldn't stand the long, winding journey. Anyway, we had breakfast and tried the variety of teas there namely: Gunung Chantik, Bukit Cheding, Palas Supreme and other flavoured and scented teas.



Very soon, we were on our way down. We stopped at EQ Farm to pluck our own strawberries but to our dismay, their workers were on holidays and we were not allowed to pluck the strawberries ourselves. Then at Kea Farm, we had hoped to stop at the morning market, but to my surprise, there were too many people. We finally stopped at a souvenir shop along the way. We proceeded to have lunch at Brinchang. Then moved on to Cactus Valley. It's a nice place to visit. Entrance fee is RM4 per person. Here we took many photos of the cactus, flowers and sceneries.

It was already 3.00 pm when we finished touring the Cactus Valley. My dad decided that we leave as not to get caught up in the terrible jam. We bought some corns and veges, and left. At Tapah, we detoured to Kampar and met up with May's parents for dinner. Pretty soon, we were on our way back to KL. We arrived at 10.00pm and I remember on that particular day, Man Utd hammered Liverpool 2-0. Sigh.....
Cracks @ The Curve B1 Carpark




I was at The Curve last Saturday 28/10/06. As I walk to B1 to collect my car, I noticed these cracks on the wall. I guess it's not structural crack, so guys....don't worry.

Motorola V3X




I've been using a Nokia 8310 for 4 years now. It's high time for me to change to a new phone. Taking 3G into consideration with budget constraint, I've finally shortlisted 2 phones, Nokia 6280 and Motorola V3X. Finally, I bought a V3X.


Basically, the specs are:

- UMTS(3G) 384 kbps

- Weight 125g (quite heavy tho')

- Dimension ( 99 x 55 x 20mm), 89 cc

- Display TFT 256K colours, 240 x 320 pixels

- External display 65K colours, 96 x 80 pixels

- Ringtones: polyphonic 24 channels, MP3

- Phonebook 1000 x 20 fields

- Cardslot microSD up to 512MB

- Internal memory 64MB

- GPRS Class 10 (32-48 kbps)

- Bluetooth v1.2

- Browser WAP 2.0/xHTML

- Camera 2.0 MP, 1600 x 1200 pixels

- Video, flash

This V3X seems to be user friendly. I like the 3G function very much, altho' there are not many friends of mine who are using 3G. Currently Maxis is having a promotion. 7am-7pm normal call rates, 7pm-7am FOC. I've been 3G-ing with Chrissaro very frequent nowadays....and it's great to be having this kind of technology.

For those of you who are wondering how fun 3G is, wait till u try it yourself....

Ping Pong Table @ Teluk Intan ~ October 2006



Life in Teluk Intan is pretty bored. Each day after work, we will be wondering what to do. After rounds of snooker, mahjong, cho dai di, blah, blah, blah.....we decided to get a ping pong table. The table costs us RM360...shared by 4 person. So, it's a worthwhile sports activity 'in the house'...
