OLD GADGETS

Thank You Allah..I have just found a long lost favourite calculator HP 12C.I bought it in 2006 to celebrate HP25TH YEAR anniversary.It went into a wrong bag when I moved house five years ago.I was wondering whether it is still working.I pressed the ON button and it is alive and I kissed it.This is my first time kissing a calculator.Luckily no one was around to see my nerdy behaviour.

Nowadays,who need a calculator albeit a programmable one? A smart phones with its hundreds of apps will take care of the all old calculator functions.To me,I prefer the old calculator like the one above.Who needs a watch if all times in more than 160 cities can be read from a smart phone.Some people still prefer a watch;and a few still want the old mechanical watch with brands like Rolex and Dior etc.

I love gadgets but I am no techie who tweaks,hacks and cannabalised their gadgets and made them better.I have both Mac and PC.I started with Palm Pilot and ended with Treo 650 before the Smart Phones came and rule the planet earth.I blogged with geicities and used typepad and blogger dot com.I am a Flickr and 500px members-in short been there and done that.Now,I am active on Facebook and enjoy my book,cycling and photography..

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002



The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..





"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?





'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

ON RAINS

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
