iPhone 3G in Singapore

Singapore didn’t get the iPhone 3G on 11 July. But that didn’t stop some Singaporeans from buying oversea. In fact, that guy sitting next to me in office got the new iPhone 3G from Hong Kong already. Damn expensive!

It may not be the first iPhone 3G in Singapore. But it is surely one of the first few in town.

Managed to touch/play/molest/camwhore with the iPhone 3G for a while. Look pretty much like the iPhone Gen 1. The only major physical difference is the backside. (This sound so wrong) I didn’t managed to try surfing online with 3G. Plugged in my Mobile Broadband SIM card but have problem configuring it. Will try to configure it again next time. GPS works as promise. Love the feature where you can just go to google map and press the locate button. Pretty accurate.

I also browsed thru the Apps store briefly. Didn’t download any free apps yet. But some of the programs looks cool. This is going to be the killer. It’s hard for other handphone makers to get so many developers writing programs for their phone.

The only problem is that this thingy here is a battery sucker. But I guess still enough for 1 day usage.

I want the iPhone 3G!!!!! But its very very expensive now. Argh. So near yet so far.

Surprise in the morning

I don’t know why, but I keep getting surprises in the morning lately.

Like few weeks ago, I woke up and discovered that I was banned from ping.sg.

Yesterday morning, I woke up and discovered that Endoh was also being banned.

This morning, I woke up and found this in my email box. By some anonymous person.

Hahaha… That was funny. Thanks to the anonymous sender (whoever you are). Nicely done.

I wonder what surprise will I get tomorrow.

S$1m reward for information leading to capture of Mas Selamat

Saw this on CNA.

A cash reward of S$1 million is being offered for information leading to the apprehension of Mas Selamat inside or outside Singapore.

Deputy Prime Minister and Home Affairs Minister Wong Kan Seng revealed this in Parliament on Monday in response to a question on fugitive JI leader Mas Selamat.

The million dollar reward was put up by two private individuals who had approached the Home Affairs Ministry.

Members of the public with information on Mas Selamat can call the Counter Terrorism Centre hotline at 1800-262-6473 or the Police at 999. All information received will be kept confidential and will be verified and investigated.

Seriously, why are we doing all these when the Home Affairs Minister failed to do his job? I think it’s time he wake up his idea and do something about it. It’s a disgrace that two private individuals have to step forward to give reward to help catch the terrorist. It’s a clear indication that the government isn’t doing enough.

Wow…. S$1m reward.

That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

On July 21 1969, Armstrong made his descent to the Moon’s surface and spoke his famous line “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”

Apollo 11
Some say it’s a hoax. Other say it’s real.
You decide.

Photo of the week – Roomful of blues for rent

Been taking more photos ever since I got the new camera. Most of them just random snapshots of stuff I see around me. In fact, I’ve already taken more than 800 photos ever since I got the new Sony T300 camera 1 month ago.

Wanted to start a photo blog to share the photos that I’ve taken. But I know the lazy me will be too lazy to update frequently. Maybe I should just post the photos weekly.

So here is this week’s photo.

Saw this opposite Mr Bean Cafe. A roomful of blues for rent. Anyone?
hmmm….. why would anyone want to rent so much blues?

(OK OK, the Roomful of blues is not for rent. It’s the shophouse above.)
