Eye Eye Aizzzz

Today i realize my eyes sight seemed to have deteriorate. This morning as i sat in the cafe waiting for my client, i stared at my laptop very closely. As i attempted to move my eyes approximate 1 arm length away from the screen, I realized the screen looked blur and i had to squint a few times. hmmmm.

Should i consider lasik? That will mean i need to fork out another $2k again. *sob gone my camera + other things*

First get rid of the bad habit of sitting so close to the screen. Is time to check my eyes and get new pair of funky glasses :P

Simplicty Sells - by David Pogue

New York Times columnist David Pogue takes aim at technology’s worst interface-design offenders, and provides encouraging examples of products that get it right. To funny things up, he bursts into song. 

One of the thing that struck a chord with me is to stop adding new things and improve the current situation. :)

Returning Home

Kg's reservist allowed me to return back to my own home. I was excited initially as i was looking  forward to spend time with my 2 sisters and my mom. Monday came and as I was about to return home, Kg called me and said he was going to book out that night and thus returning home. So i was quite disappointed that I was on "recall".

Tuesday came and Kg ensured he was not out and thus happily I packed my stuffs. As I packed, i started to "regret" as I need to pack quite number of things. Clothes, laptop, wires, hdd, basically u know the things i need to survive for the entire of the next day. By the time I felt i was carrying a huge tortoise shell out of the house.

When i reached my mom's place, i was greeted with the familiar smell of the food she cooked. I could also tell she was really happy that i was around. I too on the other hand was glad to spend time with my sisters. Though we didn't really talk much that night as all of us were quite busy in our own world, I kind of enjoy sitting there with them. Though it was almost close to 3 months since I left home, everything still felt as if I never left. But still there was this tiny feeling that it was different from my own place.

Punggol is a quiet place where you can hear nature (aka toads) and in amk you hear roarring (pple and cars). In the beginning, I couldn't get use to the new home but now in AMK home, i realize everything is so different. 

That night i slept in my parents' room as my dad was away for overseas work (else i was to sleep in sleeping bag that night), my mom was grumbling the whole night to me. She complained my dad and my brother and occasionally the sisters as well.

It was familiar but yet it was kind of upsetting. I didn't felt peace in the house for the very first time. Everyone seems to be burdened by something heavy.

After this trip back home, I realize I really need to pray for my family daily and diligently. Praying for peace to dwell in the house and more important in everyone's heart.  Father, be with my family members because You are really needed in their lives.

I thank God for this family and really I pray for the day to come to see my whole family coming to know who God is.

Shd i join? (Or rather Shd i get?)

Browse and saw iPhone Developer Program. In the past, my poly final year project was to develop games app for Nokia phones. Maybe now is the time to venture into this area since the whole world is on iPhone. Haha.

PY: I need to get an iPhone NOW

KG: Why you need that ? Your Samsung is working.

PY: I am going to develop cool apps on iPhone.

KG: You're just finding an excuse to get an iPhone.

PY: Exactly, else when can i find another perfect excuse to buy iPhone.

I got a C+ by the way for the final year project. Because there were countless alot of bugs. hehe

Above conversation was just fictitious but in anyhow it might just come true becos i could almost picture him saying that anyway.

Clear my head

 Philippians 4:7-9 (New International Version)

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
