Not sure where should I begin. Hmm, perhaps the Forum Nokia Code Camp would be a good starting point. Last week, Nokia and Maxis held a Forum Nokia Code Camp on Wednesday and Thursday for free. Yep, registration was free and apart from free lectures on developing applications for Symbian OS, we got free breakfasts, lunches and tea breaks as well. I am not into Java programming but well, it was a good start for mobile phone application developers like me to get to know about it better. I eventually got to meet with Flavert guys and not forgetting about Your Brother, a clan member of Your Clan (erm yeah I know the clan name sounds weird but that’s our clan name >:3 ).
Oh btw I have something that Hangmen might envy.
I got my copies of Street Fighter 4 and Killzone 2 on the last Friday. I tested SF4 with Sora on that night after work. I had problems connecting to Warzone with KZ2 though. Perhaps because I bought the Region 1 version. So meh. Then again, I haven’t finished yet my game of Valkyria Chronicles. More over I got emoed halfway through the game because my favorite character died ;_; nooooooooooo…. At the time of writing, I still have one more episode left to go. Maybe I shall finish it tonight.
Saturday was an unfortunate day. My mom was being admitted to the emergency ward at Serdang Hospital. She fell ill and her body’s weak. For the whole day I was at the hospital. Eventually doctor said that she can go home to rest after giving some medication and also several hours of examination. The even pretty much shocked me. I became less motivated to do anything and I had a presentation on the next day. So I skipped the next day classes at Malacca after I got headache as I was doing some works on the previous night. My mom still not fully recovered though. Most of the time she’s resting at the bed and do some light chores.
Monday’s an off day. The celebration of Prophet Muhammad birthday. I did nothing much and most of time doing chores at home. Eventually I played Valkyria Chronicles a little. Then Shah called me on the phone asking me to go along with him and his wife to Nilai 3. Well for those who don’t know, Nilai 3 is a place where most stuffs are directly from manufacturers and you can bargain there. The first thing that came in my mind was remote control. But in the same time I was thinking about brithday presents for my dad and my mom. Whatever. So I went there in the late afternoon and I bought Panzerkampfwagen III RC. The turret is operable and can shoot too. Back home I played around the tank with my gashapons and figmas.
It was tempting to get the tank as it was priced at RM 180. Since it’s made in China and it’s not a Tamiya, it’s supposed to be cheap. However, this is bloody cheap as the shopkeeper dude really wanted to sell it off because it’s the only one left. Plus, people prefer the normal version more rather than the more expensive ones that have artificial smoke. For example, the Panzer III that I got is priced at RM 180 while the same model with artificial smoke is priced at RM 230. There are other models like Panzer IV which I prefer more than Panzer III but it was priced at RM 250 and has artificial smoke. If you’re wondering what’s the artificial smoke do, it is actually appeared when the tank shoots. At other shop, there’s Panther model and also an American tank model. But they’re priced higher. The model that I really wanted was Tiger I which was sold out (and priced far more higher). Apparently my purchase came with a freebie, another RC. Just a simple RC stuff which I think I may give it to my niece as birthday present since her birthday is on the next month too. Back to my initial point, I supposed to find some presents for my parents’ birthdays. Hmmm… Maybe I should get something else.
