YES, my house is in YTL's YES 4G Coverage.


Here are the plans,
So Voice, Internet and SMS... No contract, No usage Quota. But not so good for heavy downloaders as this is Pay As You Use.., so this is only suitable for those looking for a backup incase their main internet line is down, oh, You need to maintain a RM30/month usage though..


These are the devices.

I will probably get the huddle. and the good thing is , NO NEED for a Simcard! you just need a YES ID!

Recently I felt watching videos on YouTube a bit choppy and slow, so I google'd

p1 w1max youtube slow

I then got into SoyaCincau's blog post about the slowness of youtube, the posting date of the blog post is 12th August 2010 which is not long ago... I have to agree with SoyaCincau, my YouTube is randomly slow..



See, 50kbps! Usually I get around 1200kbps, what happened? I cant live with slow speeds..

Now, compare this to my weekly download of MalFreeMaps


See? 160.3 KB/s which equals to 1282.4kbps which is what the speed I subscribed.. And that is from MegaUpload's FREE download server.

P1 really need to do something about this, else 1st quarter 2012 I potong to TM UniFi

Azlan Mahmud
Got this e-mail from TM...





 What??!?!?!?! QUARTER 1, 2012???  hehz... Till then, im with my trusty P1 W1MAX. 


sekian tima kaseh

This is a route simulation of the Navigation feature using Garmin Mobile XT with the latest MalFreeMaps..

The route simulation is close to the near thing.. YES, LAG LAG LAG LAG

This is why I hate the P3300 (Artemis), and because it doesnt have A-GPS, it won't find signal in a car that have tinted windows..

This is a song sang and written by MrBrownShow.com

about the floods that recently occurred in Singapore.. Orchard road was like Orchard river..

LYRICS


Ooooooooh woooooooh hohoho
Ooooooooh woooooooh hohoho
Blame your mother, blame your father
Blame the season, blame the maker
See the waters, down in Orchard
Lucky Plaza, basement flooded
We have a big longkang
Our drains should be Number One
But when the freak rain come
In the end we still lan lan
So we say
When I eat horfun, I saw the rain come
I call PUB, they never call me back
I think they damn slack
I think they damn slack
I think they damn slack
I think they damn
When I drink Horlick, I saw the rain come
I call PUB, they never call me back
My car in void deck
I can't find my cat
My underwear wet
And there it goes
Ooooooooh woooooooh hohoho
Ooooooooh woooooooh hohoho
Say it's garbage, say it's blockage
Say it's bad luck, that drain got stuck
PM say don't , unrealistic
Singapore can't, be zero flood
Time to buy sampan
Don't park in Basement One
And when the freak rain come
Why this song so Cheena one ?
So we say
When I eat horfun, I saw the rain come
I call PUB, they never call me back
I think they damn slack
I think they damn slack
I think they damn slack
I think they damn
When I eat chee cheong fun, I saw the rain come
I call PUB, they never call me back
My car in void deck
I can't find my cat
My underwear wet
And there it goes
Ooooooooh woooooooh hohoho . . .

So, you are in a building that has no windows.. And too kiasu bout getting charged when using your phone to check weather..

Here's what you need.
1. An active Astro subscribtion (B.yond preferred)

See attached image for hint.

2. A working TV Set..

Instructions...

1. Turn on the TV, if you're using normal astro and it says not available, its raining outside. Though we don't know how heavy it is..

To know how heavy it is,

Use b.yond, turn on the TV, if it says not available, means it is raining cats and dogs outside..

Seriously I have to say that byond is really good in slight rain..
Azlan Mahmud
I can't.. Because the content will not be original.. There must be someone who already posted on the sites/blogs..

I need something original... and I dont like blogging personal stuff because ITS PERSONAL..

Personal = Twitter..

Seriously with the invention of Twitter blogs are not used anymore.. Only if we are going to write a super duper long article then we use blogs..

Under 140 Characters = Twitter..

Around 140-350 = TwitLonger

more than that than I blog. KTHXBYE..

I Really really want to change my phone now.. the HTC Artemis I'm using currently is so outdated.. it is launched in 2006 and the good thing about it is only the GPS, which sucks sometimes. no 3G, only edge..

called Astro on Saturday, gave them the account number, Decoder serial number and agreed to the terms and condition. There is a 1 year contract for this b.yond, but who cares, we've been on Astro since 1996/1997. After that Astro said they will install b.yond here before 19th June. That's a long time..

yesterday, 8th june 2010, Astro called and said they will install it tomorrow (which is today 9/6/2010). Then today, they called again that they were coming to install.. within 15 minutes, they arrived at my home.

They unhook the cables from the old decoder because they wanna take it back.

So here is the box for the new Astro B.yond decoder

























Then they started to remove the old dish, and install the new one

removing the old one

installing the new, black, wider dish

Goodbye PHILIPS ASTRO dish, u've served is more than 10 years already

Now the new dish is fixed, testing the dish for the optimal satellite reception

after the dish is fully installed, they checked the satellite setting on the TV


After everything is done, the Astro installer explained to me 1 by 1 of the Astro B.yond features.. then he updated the software version to the latest..

Here are some pics of the HD channels

ESPN HD

And here are 2 other shots from HBO HD


The installation time took roughly around 1 hour. I wish I had a bigger screen TV so I can see more picture details..

Hehe, this day is so great, first I got my Avatar Blu-Ray which is ordered from VideoEzy.com.my
the price is RM95.20 and RM5 for shipping. Ordered on Thursday night, VideoEzy called me but I didnt answered because the phone was somewhere else! so they called again on Friday to confirm. so it was confirmed. Today (15 May 2010) the shipment arrived!


WTH, it comes with BARBIE????

OK, the picture quality was so goood even on a non-calibrated, HD Ready 1080p (1366X768) TV. sound was good too. sadly I cant enjoy the true potential of the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 cause I dont have a Home Theatre System.

Then, I went for lunch.. After coming back... and curiously checked the house mailbox, I was surprised to see this


my The Dark Knight that I ordered from Amazon.com on 1st May 2010 has ARRIVED!
Waaaa!!



Item Shipped: May 5th 2010
Expected arrival: June 11 2010 <--- why so long one? Released by Customs(phew...): 14 May 2010 Arrived at my place: 15 May 2010.. Really didnt expect this. EXACTLY 10 days.. I choose the CHEAPEST shipping options available. The reason I bought this The Dark Knight is because I cant resist the deal, only USD 9.49!!! So this is only what "I" (ya right...) had to pay... USD 9.49 and USD 8.98 for shipping. Total: USD 18.47. That is still CHEAP. Compared to RM149 which is selling at $peedy... but if me buy MORE things the shipping will be way lesser... but I guess only these for now.. will probably buy more when really CHEAP deals comes again. Enjoying the movie now, BYE!

Last Saturday, we all went to Mazda showroom at Jalan Ampang

Bermaz Motor Trading Sdn Bhd, Jalan Ampang..

Checking out the cars that is there, the recently launched Mazda 2, Mazda 3 Sports sedan and the Mazda 6.. They weren't any test drive cars that day.. so we booked a test drive today (1/5/2010)


So today went back to the Mazda showroom, took the Mazda 6 2.5L for a test drive around KL.

Its a 2.5L engine so its a bit heavy.. Acceleration wise.. its okay.. if you are cruising at 100km/h its very easy to accelerate smoothly.. Fuel consumption is 10KM/Litre for highway and around 7-8KM/Litre for city driving..

I like the sunroof for this car... oh.. and the best thing is.. Cornering is SOOO Goood!!!

But because of this car is using Sports suspension.. the rear passenger (which is me) will feel sick.. because it is SOOO Bumpy... I almost threw up.. but they say it can be changed to a softer suspension.

The car only lacks GPS..

The price for the 2.o RM148,933 W/O insurance and for the 2.5L is RM175000 W/O insurance..

Why do I only like Toshiba ZV Series over other LED, 3D LCD Tv's?

Simple,

Because of this feature that does not exist on other TV's.. just for Toshiba



Toshiba’s unique and critically-acclaimed Resolution+ upscaling technology takes everyday standard definition content and instantly improves edge detail and texture, enhancing it to virtually high definition picture quality. Even for the untrained eye, the difference between standard and high definition picture quality is plain to see. Resolution+ drastically improves standard definition picture quality, bringing it close to the level of clarity which only high definition content can achieve. With Resolution+, your Toshiba LCD Television will produce near high definition picture quality on all standard definition TV, DVD and downloaded content you watch while still delivering the most pure and stunning picture quality possible from all high definition sources. Watch as your favourite movies, programmes and games become clearer, richer and sharper than ever before with Toshiba, and Resolution+.

read more about it HERE

Basically. When for example you watch Astro's Standard Definition channels which is broadcasted in 4:3 aspect ratio, it will be stretched to fit the whole TV Screen and the image will be highly pixelated.

However, you can also have Pillarbox on your 16:9 Screen.


this option retains the original 4:3 format on the 16:9 screen.... But.. what's the benefit of a big TV if you dont fully maximise its potential?

So this Toshiba's Resolution+ technology will take the quality of the standard definition and process to make the image appear as a 1080p image. which will look Near HD quality...

other things I like bout this TV is because it can play 24P Real Movie and it have ClearScan 200 which uses its backlight scanning technology.. so faster framerate.. good for playing games.. oh.. and AutoView to..

Price - Rm3.5k.. Its worth it...

Wow man, the lastest Chile earthquake is 8.8 Richter Scale. That's Crazy!!

Expect some Tsunami's. More than 50 countries is at risk of getting
the wave. The Tsunami warning went off at Hawaii just now. More than
78 people were killed because of the earthquake. They predict the
tsunami will hit Indonesia but not Malaysia. Thank god.

Anyway, RIP for the people that have lost their lives. Check the
latest update from CNN or Twitter.

Yesterday (24th Feb 2010) something happened in my class, which the so called "worse" case in my school. me and some of my friends got back to the class from changing our Shirts to Sports attire, when we arrived at the class, the Discipline teacher was there along with all other classmates. So we were curious what did happen. So, the teacher said one of the girl's table had been written really foul language. so he asked us to give our books to him to check the handwriting which match the writing on the table.

So, we passed it, the teacher lets us go to do sports activity, TODAY (25th Feb 2010), another discipline teacher came to our class, SHOUTING about how that can happen, she said like "ini kerja orang gile ****" she was shouting for an hour, she said better admit, no one admitted. So she says this investigation will go on till the school finds the one who wrote it and we cant go for the Sports Day if the suspect doesnt get caught... ugh FML. Come on.., can you just ignore it? Its just a foul language.. OTHER schools have bigger problem like the student's smoking, trading illegal items bla bla bla and so on.. and the girl who sits at the table there, cant she just ignore it and just erase? Report here report there, now all of us are in trouble

Today was the most EMBARRASING day for me and my classmates. It was Arabic language subject. The teacher asked us to go to our school's Arabic centre. OK, then me and my friends took our stuff ( pencil case, textbook and notebook) and leave the classroom, there is still some boys left in the classroom. The girls were preparing their stuffs too that time, we dont want to wait for them. So we left..

The Arabic centre is outside of the school, a block away. Me and my friends go in to the Arabic centre. the guy in there asked where we are from, we answered the name of our class. Than the guy asked me all of us to sit down at a TV area. We sit quietly doing nothing, then some guy in a class were looking at us in a weird way. we ignored him.

Then a lady come out from the class and tell us. This is not ADNI Arabic Centre.

WTF???

and that lady told us that is not the first time people wrongly entered that arabic centre. Uggh, then we go to right arabic centre, we we're all had red faces when we were there. FML
