It has been 6 years since we were together, all of those up and down we've been through. However, Nothing last forever.. Tonight will be the last night.. You will be greatly missed, I hope the next owner will give you tender-loving care like we did, so long, Its hard for me to say this,but, goodbye! :'(

I got my new laptop, so now I can upload videos already, this is the final video of the car, so sad to see it leave eh...


Till we meet again.. Somewhere, Somehow, Someday...

As usual, I was browsing forums, I stumbled upon this thread . I clicked it, and noticed a picture of the brand new Proton Preve was involved in a side collision with a lorry.

It was also posted in the thread that the occupants in the vehicle was unharmed, only minor scratches. Pretty amazing isnt it that collision like this did not harm the driver that much.. As you can see, the cabin is intact, and its side airbag functioned as they were supposed to. I could not even see any traces of blood scattered around. I also believe that the window had been tinted with security tints as it didnt shatter into pieces and remain intact..

I do think that this car is the most value for money you can buy at its category. At only RM72k, you get (I copied this list from that thread):

auto wiper
auto light
auto dimmed mirror
push start button
audio with ipod connection
built in gps
4 air bags
ESP (electronic stability control)
brake assist and traction control
front and rear disc brakes
trunk lid remote release
turbocharged CFE
multifunction steering
projector headlamp
paddle shift
LED daytime running light
larger car with more space
better handling car
higher body rigidity car (RESS)
auto cruise

No competition. The main competitor, u know what it is only offers
ABS, 2 Airbags, and some fancy bodykits at a price of RM90k.
Yet, people buy them for the sake of reliability and resale value. More than the safety of them and their

Fikir-Fikir kan lah...

It was a fine Saturday afternoon,

around 4:20PM,

In between tuition classes, I decided to have a look at the Google Play store to check out new apps, what shocked me is when I got this message appeared on my phone,

I was like, "what??", I never had a problem signing in and out of Google weather it was from my phone, or other devices. I thought my phone had some bug or something, I then restarted the phone. Thinking that it might solve my problem. But.. Nope, it did not. After countless time of Retry-ing. I finally gave up. I then quickly launched the Browser of the phone, and pointed the page to

We've detected suspicious activity on your Google Account

Shock! Horror!, It looks like somebody attempted to gain access to my account!, No worries, keep calm, I then continue to follow the instructions to change my password. This was the first time I had changed my password since I first registered for Gmail. And I quite like my old password, because it was easy to remember. But I had no choice, I had to change or I would not be able to access my account again!.

And this is what I got in my inbox after I had changed my password, Google claimed that someone from Russia is trying to gain access to my account. Dear (russian) hackers, seriously, What do you gain by hacking my account? It's not like I have any personal information like credit card numbers and some kind of things that can affect National Security. So why me??

Whatever is done, is DONE! I'll just forget about this issue. And Kudos to the Google team for being able to stop what was supposed to be a hacking attempt. But the hacking was unsuccessful.

Was on the way back to our hotel (Kings Hotel) from a trip to Zoo Melaka today, and suddenly I spotted this car, it looks familiar, than I recognized its a Peugeot 408, I wonder why it still havent been launched. The Preve, Elantra and Polo Sedan has been launched already, this Peugeot?

The rest of the photos can be found in my Facebook  album.

On a side note, I spotted this 2 lions side by side on the highway today, looks nice :)

During the last holiday, my family and I went to Ipoh to have some fun at The Lost World of Tambun, on the way to our next location, which is Colmar Tropicale, we stopped by and visited the Kellie's Castle as requested by my brother. This is a short summary about the Kellie's Castle

Kellie's Castle - "The Mysterious Love Castle"

Once owned by William Kellie Smith a Scottish player who built this castle as an expression of love for his wife Agnes in 1905. William was born on 1st March 1870 in Elgin, Scotland. His grandiose plan never materialized due to his sudden death in Lisbon, Portugal due to pneumonia at the age of 56. This castle was said to be hunted where apparitions of William was seen wondering in this abandon castle.

My brother posing infront of the castle

Upon entering the castle, we had to pay an entrace fee of RM2 for Children and RM4 for adults. The first thing we went to look is the Mysterious Corridor

So eager to find out, but mehh, its in the afternoon, ghost is sleeping larr..


This is the guest room. This room was suppose to be a guestroom if this castle were to be completed. There is a secret staircase from the bathroom heading out of this castle

Guest Room

Stairway incase of emergency
Now , this is their daughter's dressing room

And.. The Mystery of Helen's Room, yeah, with my dumb metal detector again..

And there was supposed to be Malaya's first elevator, but sadly William died on the way to collect it, dont know why he must collect it himself..

And... to the top of the roof we go!!! Not for the one's who is scared of heights, there's no railings or safety team here. U fall, bad luck..

Cant wait to get down, so scared.
And after that we went down the building, this is the unfinished kitchen I presume

Here is the front part (or maybe back? I am not too sure) of the castle

Tired and on the way back to the car, I went to the wine room myself, this place give me chills! The room itself is pitch dark, I used the camera flash for this one.. and my LED Torch from my Galaxy Nexus at full brightness besides the camera

Now, its time to leave the castle, I hope my school makes a trip there again..!

Yeah, I am so bored today, so I will post about last year's Frasers Hills vacation trip.

Went up to Fraser's Hills on 24th Dec 2011.

On the way to Fraser's Hills, the road is winding. Enjoyed the breeze of fresh air 1/2 part of the way, it rained after that :(

Winding roads.

Turned off the GPS on the way, because it was no use!

More Winding roads!

And then we finally arrived at Bukit Fraser.

After that, we went to search for our bungalow, found it!

This is how the bungalow looks like

Its so cold that a fireplace is needed!

After that we went to ride a horse, but typical me, I refused.

And.. Some miniature golf!

After that, a waterfall, I cant remember the name right now.. Yes, yes, I didnt went into the water because it was too cold.. But my brother, Azmeir did..

The next (and final day), woke up in the morning and went to Allan's Water..

Then its time to go home... It didnt rain this time! Bye cool weather!

Winding roads again.
Man Made lake.
Till we meet again, Fraser's Hills! Was planning to go to Cameron Highlands, but friends says the weather is not so cool.. :(

Today [18/2/2012] I arrived at Ayer Keroh - Petronas R&R to fill up petrol to continue journey back to KL, but once I arrived at Petronas, I noticed 2 cars covered .. So, I quickly realised it is the upcoming Proton P3-21A , and took out my phone, too bad when I was taking out my phone, they started to leave the petrol station already, and yes, I have to confess, I had no guts to approach them nearer..

So here is the pics..

The first car to leave, notice the proper rims?

Driver waiting for the co-driver.
Co-Driver back from the petrol mart
Starts the engine and leaves immediately
Once again, sorry for the crappy shots, It was taken by using a Galaxy Nexus, which is known to have a bad camera, and me standing so far away from the car.
