1: Celcom operators not fully trained in Blackberry
2: Tell them to stop asking me to call using another number, even if I wan to ask question to the technician
3: Tell them to read and pay attention to my files on your server instead of reading scripts.
4: My dispute cases are incredible slow to be handle, or has it been forgotten
5: EDGE becomes edge before it is expired (i subsribe at 8am, at 2pm, i could not use the blackberry service again)
6: When it auto renews, EDGE becomes edge, regardless of how many times I reset my BB, change HRP or set mobile network searching to manual..
7: I keep getting calls from the operators saying that its my fault that BB is not working since at Celcom, BB service is working, FUCK LA you all..
8: BB keeps activating WAP and bleeding my credit, now I have to be constantly paranoid of my BB eating through my prepaid credit
9: Celcom is FUCKING slow to deal with my problems
I came with my own solutions
1: NEVER ever subscribe to BB social, because it comes without Internet charges. BB will try its best to connect to the internet, with BB social you be charged using ridiculously expensive WAP charges.
2: Always BB off before midnight to prevent it from screwing up.
3: Always call using another phone beside your BB, because if you managed to be connected to the operators, they will tell you to call back using another phone.. WTF!!!

I think the best of both worlds, would be, to have a permanent income, i mean a real income, that includes epf, tax, and loans, not just allowance money your advisor gives to you, like what your parents did. i just don't feel right drivng the Viva, I felt I should have gone for the 850cc model, or better 660cc model, and used my sister's as a guarantee for my loan, so that I could strech the hire purchase agreement into a rent like 9 years installments. yeah, paying your car in 9 years is like renting it.
I opened my first ever loans, yes loans, i got loans before i even started working, hows that for digging a hole that never ends.. sigh.. looking at the loan, just creeps me out, i guess buying a house is something i need to wait until i have withdraw some money from my epc account, which has not even started..
people say, if i do phd, i will be done... and someone with a educationb background never really retires, as long as i am healthy, i still can work way past retirment period. ergghh!.. damn it.. i need to just finish this crap and move on to the next level...

How funny the horoscope that tells me what I am, but then that most of my classmates were water pigs too. Perhaps its too general, since my whole class of 2000 is a water pig. Does it means all of us pigs have similar thinking? Some how I beg to differ, since everyone was a bit different from what I remember, but then, way back then, I was lacking a bit in the social skills. Go figure, that is like the total opposite of how my sign is right? But if I do like someone I do enjoy giving myself to them, hence being easily trusted right? Well, horoscopes are fun, but only if you have friends who are of different age..since the difference in personality is greater..

Turbo diesel / turbo petrol
Perhaps they only thing different between these two engines is that one uses petrol and the other uses diesels. Todays technologies blurs the line between petrol and diesel engines.
This is just the basic description of the two engines
-30% more efficient than petrol engine which means it uses less fuel
- more torque at lower RPM level, which means you dont have to rev the engine hard
-last longer than petrol engine since it was built sturdier to handle the high pressure it exerts on its cylinder
-no spark plugs, very mechanical
- noisy!, the klanky klunk sound of a diesel engine is never appealing
-black smoke it is exhaust due to soot
-smell of traditional diesel is nauseating
-traditionally burns cleaner than diesel, exhaust is clear
-the sound is smoother
-cheaper to make
-uses more fuel since its less efficient than diesels
-does not last as long as diesel
-more prone to problems
Diesel and Petrol repairing their short comings and sharing each others system
Even though diesel are efficient and produce more torque, the engine has to be huge at least 2500cc, this makes them heavy and slow compared to lighter and peppier petrol engines. When you add turbo to the engine, it produces more horsepower and even more torque that is already is. Turbo is powered by the exhaust which means the turbo is not robbing any power from the engine.
Electronic Fuel Injection
Diesel engine injects it fuel directly into the combustion chamber where the cylinder resides. Traditional diesel does this mechanically, but modern diesel does it electronically and injects high pressure diesel into the cylinder. The amout and force can be control which means more power and cleaner exhaust
Diesel fuel contains a lot of sulphur which is bad for the enviroment and causes acid rain. Sulphur is important because it acts as lubricant for the fuel. By replacing sulphur with other substance to act as lubricants, will make the diesel fuel cleaner.
Better sound proofing
You can really change the sound of diesel clanky clank sound, but you can seal the engine bay so that the sound is more suppressed.
Traditionall, fuel and air is mixed before it is injected into the chamber where the cylinder recides. It is mixed mechanically using a carburator or electronically injected. Now, petrol engine is imitating diesel engine by injecting the fuel directly into the cylinder chamber. Direct injection allows the computer to fine tune how much fuel goes in and when it should be injected. This allow the petrol engine to be fuel efficient but at the same time produce a lot of power when needed
just like the diesel engine, turbo charging a petrol engine will increase the torque and horsepower of a petrol engine. However the twist with turbo chargine petrol engine, is that now a small engine is needed, which means less weight which equals less fuel will be used but the engine produces as much power as a larger car
Well that is all that I can write about this lazy article (lazy because there is no pictures accompanying each description, just like what my science teacher said when i was in form 4)
anyways, there are other cool technologies that saves fuel and provides more power which includes double clutch transmission, stop start, and hybrids, but that is another rambling..perhaps after i include such pictures in..

Smart Tag are great too, especially if you are a Proton owner. You know how Proton power window failure is synonim to owning a Proton, with a Smart Tag, no worries about winding down your windows. Either place it on the dashboard, on the Smart Tag holder that you glued on the windshield or simply just hold it in front of you and drive through. Smart Tag lane is much faster than TnG lane and lightyears from cash lanes.
You can reload at many of their kiosk located at petrol stations and TnG option at some ATM for a 50 cent charge. You can also reload at some TnG lanes at toll plaza or at the toll plaza offices for free.
One cunning way they force you to reload at their kiosk is to open at 9am and close at 5pm/4.30pm. Also you must pass through the toll plaza to do so. Cunning now aren't they, even the discount that they give to TnG holder, is only for those who make 80 transactions and above per month. That means for a normal 5 day a week working day, you must pass at least 4 toll plaza a day. Those who live in the outskirts of KL, this is part of their normal ritual, although there are some hidden roads that a lot of people know that allows you to skip the toll plaza all together. My advisor can go to and from Melawati without paying a single cent, my sister can go to and from Kajang to KLCC without any toll. Cunning now, aren't they, just like credit card company, but that is another story all together. After all, nothing is free now in life right?
*I have bought 6 Smart Tag and 6 TnG for my family. I live where paying the toll is something normal, and something you must do if you want to get somewhere fast. I am okay with toll paying, but I hate it when they increase the price of toll even though they have increasing amount of customer each year due to resendential development due the highway development.

I developed gastric which does not allow me to go without food every 2 hours nor does it allow me to eat in huge quantity, that cancels out going to the club with friends and to a New Year's eve dinner. I spend it at home, helping Yuna, Rikku and Paine finding spears. Well, at least it was something I enjoyed to do greatly. So many stories to write, and I know some do read it, but once in a while people are getting sick eh of emo stuff :D, but who cares, really, its my blog :D emo or not, you still read it.
