Gadgets: Rubik's Cube For the Lazy

Gadgets: Rubik's Cube For the Lazy

I solved the 3x3x3 some time ago, and just solved the 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 recently.  Just came across this post.  Maybe I needed spend so much time if I figured out I could solve it this way...hahahahaa

Non-Meat Diet

I suffer from gout, a disease that has some of its causes in taking in too much of a certain kind of protein.  Some reports also suggests that rearing animals for food purposes increases carbon emission.  And there are a number of other reasons for getting used to a non-meat diet. 

That's why I told myself that I want to try it out, just like how the vegetarians do it, on the 1st and the 15th of each month (but I don't follow the lunar calendar, easier to remember and since my case is not due to religion).  Took a bowl of Yong Tau Foo today with all vegetables for lunch, wonder what's for dinner?  Is fish considered meat? hmmmmm

Don't Want to Sleep

Something is quite wrong with me tonight. Just don't really feel like sleeping, although it is already 3:37am on the clock.

Some urge to write, but the mind is blank when facing the edit box of the blog editor. It is not blank from having no thoughts, but it is too many thoughts competing for the processing time that my mind can spare for each of them, that left me with no coherent thoughts tonight, not unlike the language I am currently spewing in this post.

Rock music in my ears blasting, enjoying a good dose of May Day. This is really a band that gave me a lot of inspiration and encouragements since the time I 'discovered' them. Songs that talk about love but not just about love. Love is all that matters in this world, according to some rockers.

I say yes and no.

Love is important to me. Especially now that I have a cute little 3-year-old that brings joy to me and my wife. I have never felt such a strong love before, this love for my family - my son and my wife. The last few days, especially the last few days, when we spent a perfect weekend just accompanying one another, is something I would want to etch into my memory.

But love is also not all. There are too many things to worry about. Climate change, peak oil, diseases, economic bubble, injustice, unfairness .... all weighs down people. The world is changing so rapidly that it takes much more than before to keep up and go on.

Too many things I want to do. Too many things I want to say to people that matter to me. Too many thoughts that I should be processing. Too many things.... too many things.....too little time.... how can I bear to sleep?

My N80 is faulty!

Bad day. Bluetooth ear piece not working, left wired headset in notebook bag which was left at friend’s place, and received a call from my mother while driving in the heavy rain to retrieve the notebook. I was not able to speak to my mother without a proper earpiece while I was driving, and the loudspeaker mode just did not seem to work properly.

I stopped the car at a carpark and returned my mother’s call. The phone’s speaker at the ear (there is another speaker on the side) for the handset mode just refused to emit any sound. I had no choice but to use the loudspeaker mode, which miraculously worked again.

Called my wife to test the phone after hanging up with my mother. Again I could not hear a thing she said, although she heard me loud and clear. Tried removing the battery. Tried hardresetting. No luck.

Guess I have to bring it to the Nokia Service Centre for servicing. Sigh, and the phone is just a few months’ old.

Is it true that products nowadays don’t last anymore?

Petal Around the Roses

This much I can tell you about this game
1. The name of the Game is "PETAL AROUND THE ROSES", and it is significant.
2. The answer of each roll is either 0 or an even number.

Try it, you might just get hooked to it.

P.S. and I am sworn to secrecy about the algorithm to the answer, so begging me does not work. *wink*
