2000 Hits!

September 14, 2006 at 10:55 pm | Posted in Blogging | 6 Comments

Wow!! This blog has reached 2000 hits today! (14/9/2006)

I think I need a celebration for this.

Although you might think it’s not a big deal for having 2000 hits. But for me, getting this result in only one month (from the starting day of this blog) is a really big deal.

Thanks for those who viewed my Jay Chou’s “Still Fantasy” album review. You really helped me a lot for boosting my blog’s traffic.

In the future, I hope I can have more inspiration on writing.

However, I’m currently busy studying for my exam. So, will back to the “blogging field” after the “exam field”.

Happy blogging!


My Chinese Blog at Blogger

September 11, 2006 at 11:11 pm | Posted in Blogging, Personal | Leave a comment

I’ve started another blog in Chinese at Blogger Beta.  The purpose of setting up this blog is: I wish to have a Chinese blog and, I wish to test the new features provided by Blogger Beta.

Well, I think I should allocate more time for blogging since I need to maintain 3 blogs including this one.

If you could read Chinese, I welcome you to drop by and give comments.

I’ve transfered all my posts regarding health-related information and Vemma Business Opportunity to Reginabally’s Vemma.

Apart from that, I’m planning to write a blog at Blogger Beta in Chinese.  I will annouce it when it’s done.

Jay Chou – Still Fantasy

September 6, 2006 at 12:22 pm | Posted in Music | 19 Comments

I’m currently been attracted by this album because of one song: Qian Li Zhi Wai (1000 Miles Away). In this song, Jay invited popular veteran vocalist Fei Yu Ching on board for a special duet that contrasts traditional and modern vocals.

The duet was penned by Jay’s long-time collaborator Fang Wen Shan and broadcast by over 50 stations during the first day of its release. What’s more, Jay has made sure that his new work will not only be a feast for the ears, but also for the eyes. He spent over 2 million dollars to elaborately recreate his own nostalgic Broadway-style street.

I personally really like his songs with Chinese instruments to add into the elements of his music.

This time, Jay Chou takes the Mandarin music scene to another audio-visual high with Still Fantasy.

Monster House (another short review)

September 4, 2006 at 11:15 pm | Posted in Movies | Leave a comment

This animation gave me a very creepy feel.  I never saw (or even think that) an animation that could scare me!

Apart from that, I like the way the animators illustrate the characters.  I like the characteristics of their faces especially the baby sitter (Zee).

Well, if I were the kids, I won’t dare to go into the house.  Definitely not!

And I wonder what is so attractive about the giant lady – Constance. 

The Ant Bully (A Short Review)

September 4, 2006 at 11:05 pm | Posted in Movies | 1 Comment

This animation is similar to Antz (1998) which illustrate the colony of the ants. The only difference is: this time, the ants have a mage (or wizard or magician or something) that created a magic potion which strunk the kid into the size same as them.

The kid was required to work as a member of the colony to learn how to respect them. Throughout the process of the learning, the kid realized that the ants are not just tiny insects that can be used to make fun with when he’s sad or angry.

So, the moral of the story is: Do not bully the ants as they’re awesome insects. Nah~~~For me, as long as they didn’t disturb my food or my things, I won’t bother them. Or else…

Feel free to read Jeff’s review in Chinese.

Diner Dash 2: Restaurant Rescue

August 30, 2006 at 3:09 pm | Posted in Game | 4 Comments

In this sequel of Diner Dash, Diner Dash 2: Restaurant Rescue developed by PlayFirst Inc. brings me another excitement.The main actor of the game, Flo, is back to help her friends to rescue their restaurants from being taken over by the greedy businessman, Mr Big who plans to have a Mega Multiplex Food Plaza at the location of where Flo’s friends’ restaurants situated.

Basically, the controls are all the same as previous one. Except that there are some extra add-on for this game. There are some new kind of customers, such as families, OL (Office Ladies), Working Male with cell phones (who will talk non-stop during the dining) etc.

For family-type of customers, you need to give the babies a highchair to stop it from crying. Sometimes, the babies would spill “something-like-liquid” on the floor. So, you need to clean them. Or else, the babies will cry and all of your customers would not be happy.

Same as the previous version, there are some special treats to customers in order to make them happy. In addition to the coffee servings, there is another type of servings which is soda. Keep giving the customers drinks in order to keep them happy.

Another new feature which I find interesting is: you can add new decorations to your restaurant.

I’ve not finished this game yet. But I’ll try to pass thru all levels (if I managed to) in order to try out all the new features.

Some basic information about this game:

Game Title: Diner Dash 2: Restaurant Rescue

System Requirement:

  • Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, or XPSP2

Presentation of ASP.NET Assignment

August 30, 2006 at 1:54 pm | Posted in College Life, Personal | Leave a comment

What a day! What a shameful day…Actually I shouldn’t be shamed. We’ve done our best for this assignment.

No one should be blamed. Or I should say, I’m the one who have to responsible. The module that has problem is my module. I was wrong for not making sure if the module works after I submitted to my group leader.

However, it’s over now. Luckily, our lecturer gave us a chance to re-do some of the part and send to her. I think it’ll contribute a little bit of marks as bonus.

Anyway, I wish to thank my group leader and another group member for giving their best effort for this assignment to make this a success.
