There’s something in the air

Yeap, In about 45 minutes time, Steve Jobs will tell us what is in the air.

Is it going to be a ultra portable Macbook to rival Eee PC?
Is it some new services on WIFI or even wireless USB?

Well, one thing for sure, Apple is good at keeping secrets. Everyone is excited about what is going to be announced later. Apple store is closed as usual. It will be back online when Steve Jobs finish his keynote and it will feature the new products. Will there be a Macbook air?

I’ll stay up and watch the keynote.

Did I miss any sites?

Comiqs

I first got to know about Comiqs during popout. Michael Lim (Not Cheng hor) has a small booth where he showed me his latest project. Although it is still at beta, I was already very impressed with it.

Here a simple introduction that I did with Comiqs. Just for fun only.

Hahaha…. Interesting right? I took the cats picture from the library. You can upload your own pictures too. But I don’t have good pictures to upload.

What are you waiting for? Quick sign up Comiqs and create your own comic now!! :)

Which part of “I’m not interested" do you not understand?

Got a call from a telemarketer today.

TM: Hi, I’m calling from ABC company on behalf of XYZ bank.
Me: Yes? (Thinking to myself that this must be another credit card call)
TM: Sir, we would like to offer you a one year subscription free platinum card from XYZ bank.
Me: Sorry, I’m not interested in a new credit card.
TM: Sir, do you have a credit card with XYZ bank?
Me: Yes, but I’m not interested in getting another card from your bank. (Wish he would just hang up)
TM: May I know what card is that? Is it a gold or platinum?
Me: Sorry, but I’m not interested in your credit card. (Getting abit pissed off already)
TM: Sir, this is one year subscription free platinum card.
Me in an angry tone: Which part of “I’m not interested” do you not understand?
TM: Oh, sorry Sir, goodbye, have a nice day.
Me: Bye.

I’m usually nice to telemarketers on the phone. After all, it’s not an easy job. Why make their life miserable? I don’t like to waste their time. Once I know what product they selling and I have no use for it, I just tell them straight that I’m not interested in it and wait for them to put down the phone. Most of the time they will get it and put down the phone shortly.

Well….. Most of them except this one.

王力宏 – Kiss Goodbye

王力宏 – Kiss Goodbye

baby不要再哭泣
这一幕多么熟悉
紧握着你的手彼此都舍不得分离
每一次想开口但不如保持安静
给我一分钟专心
好好欣赏你的美

幸福搭配悲伤
痛是在我心交叉
挫折的眼泪不能测试爱的重量
付出的爱收不回
还欠你的我不能给
别把我心也带走
去跟随

每一次和你分开
深深的被你打败
每一次放弃你的温柔
痛苦难以释怀
每一次kiss you goodbye
爱情的滋味此刻我终于最明白

幸福搭配悲伤
痛是在我心交叉
挫折的眼泪不能测试爱的重量
付出的爱收不回
但欠你的我不能给
我才明白爱最真实的滋味

每一次和你分开
深深的被你打败
每一次放弃你的温柔
痛苦难以释怀
每一次kiss you goodbye
爱情的滋味此刻我终于最明白

我终于明白

每一次和你分开
深深的被你打败
每一次放弃你的温柔
痛苦难以释怀
每一次kiss you goodbye
爱情的滋味此刻我终于最明白

Simple life

Sometimes, I wish I could lead a simple life. Carefree and easy. Just don’t care about what is happening around me. Forget about all the chasing for financial freedom. Wouldn’t life be good?

Perhaps I have been working for too long. I think I need a break from work. Maybe one month or two. Just be jobless, enjoy life a little and do the stuff that I wanted to do. Like hanging out at cafe on weekday while everyone is at work. Or staying at home to surf net or learn something by myself.

Went for a ad hoc chill out session with Ridz, Jean and Alice just now. I think I could really enjoy this kind of lifestyle. Not worrying about work the next day. Just have a good time at starbucks. But you know you can’t live this lifestyle without money. End of the day, you still need to find means to earn some money.

I know I have been saying this every year when my contract is ending, but I think this time I’ll really stop renewing. Just take a month break to relax before finding a new job.

Will I finally stop renewing my contract this time round?
