Cartoons that I grew up with

Posted: 28th May 2008 by Jacky Yong in Movies and TV Shows, Silly me

I was looking at this commercial of the new Kia Proceed car featuring Vandal, and I couldn’t help noticing the funny reference it made to Voltron. Saw it in PaulTan’s website. That got me nostalgic. I went to Youtube to search for more of my memories, memories that are very much a part of me. […]

Had the opportunity to work on a couple who are getting married this weekend in Pantai Remis. I did their wedding dinner in Equitorial Hotel, KL last week, which was intended for the couple’s friends who are not able to travel all the way to Pantai Remis to attend that wedding.

The bane of using Micro$oft, you get all kinds of worms and trojans. Even if you are an IT geek, you’re not invulnerable from these little pest. I had just opens the page, and it auto downloads. Before I have any say in whether or not to scan it, Trend Micro has “intelligently” verified that […]

I give up. I can’t seem to find back XMMS in Hardy. But this is Linux world, everything is available, you just have to look harder. I bumped into Audacious, and it looks like a good XMMS replacement. Contrary to what everybody thinks, XMMS2 is NOT a replacement for XMMS. It’s actually a command line […]

What should I do with a .sh file?

Posted: 14th May 2008 by Jacky Yong in Computers

Sometimes somewhere, you encounter some really stupid sites that are trying to be helpful, but they expected you to know how or what to do with the file. Happens quite often in the world of Linux. I was trying to get myself the XMMS from the apt-get, but unfortunately I couldn’t find it. The error […]

Singaporeans thrives underground!

Posted: 9th May 2008 by Jacky Yong in Silly me

They do! The very vein that runs through Singapore seems to be beneath the soil. Can’t blame me for thinking like that. The open air seems so bare of life when I was looking for dinner near my hotel on Wednesday. Then I went to the MRT in Tanjung Pagar, and boy was I surprised! […]

Singapore again

Posted: 8th May 2008 by Jacky Yong in Current Affairs

I’m writing this from Singapore again. Been here since yesterday, and flying back to KL tomorrow. This time is a bit different. I’m staying in M Hotel instead of the usual Holiday Inn or York Hotel. Fully booked, so I’ve heard. M Hotel is way off from Orchard Road. It’s in Cecil Street, right smack […]

Yong Hui Yan

Posted: 4th May 2008 by Jacky Yong in Silly me

Oh by the way, the name is Yong Hui Yan, 杨恺恩, cantonese pinyin. We celebrated Hui Yan’s full moon yesterday with minimal fanfare. Yesterday also marked the last day that they confinement lady will be with us. And the start of nightmares for us. Imagine waking up to two crying babies in the middle of […]

Page Blank after upgraded to WordPress 2.5.1

Posted: 3rd May 2008 by Jacky Yong in Computers

Sometimes it’s not that good to have too much updates so often. Every now and then I will have to be bugged by the message “Your WordPress is out of date. Please update to version xxx”. To be honest, I feel harassed. It seem that it wasn’t that long ago that I upgraded to version […]
