which laptop to get?

Posted by: amanda on: May 9, 2014

My laptop died last night while copying my files. It only lasted 2.5 years. I wish I save the files before. I lost many files. The only good thing coming out of this is I will need a new laptop soon.

The next question is which laptop to get?

I want something light. Not big. Sit comfortably on the lap. Not too hot. Not too loud. Not apple. Good quality.

homicide rate by countries

Posted by: amanda on: April 11, 2014

Ya, if you prefer not to be killed in your life time, you got to move to Singapore. If you feel Malaysia is unsafe, one should move to Indonesia. Its homicide rate is 1/4 of Malaysia.

unfortunate event – MH370

Posted by: amanda on: March 13, 2014

This is an unfortunate event. No one would have predicted. I feel sad and sorry for the people who lost their loved ones. This could have easily happened to him especially when he travel so often. That is not the point about this blog. I just want to express my disappointments over how the handling of the event by the authorities.

From what I read on the news and TV, the Malaysian authorities failed to provide all the information they have that would help to rescue or recover the plane and the people on board. What’s worse is they provided wrong or contradictory information.

I have a few theories:

1) Incompetent leaders — couldn’t get the accurate information from the military and other parties who may have information regarding the plane.

2) Have something to hide — the authorities have something to hide, either something really embarrassing for the world to learn or something unlawful done behind the scene which might be uncovered if more information about the missing plane is revealed to the world.

3) incompetent to handle crisis — the authorities are used to have total control of media. They choose to release what and when and the media would never question the validity of the information. They are trying to use the same way to handle this international crisis, they failed miserably.

Having said that, everyone made mistakes. We learn from our mistakes and make necessary changes not to repeat them again. I truly hope the authority could learn from the mistakes. Please do not sweep this under the carpet so to speak as they normally do.

I’m ashamed.

all the goodies and bad ones must come to end

Posted by: amanda on: November 19, 2013

I just re-read the first few blog posts on this site. I can’t believe that was so many years ago. All good and bad things must come to end. I don’t have the time to keep posting on this website. This is likely my last blog post. Looking back, I’ve grown up a lot in the last 4.5 years. Our lives will never be perfect but at least we’re working on it.

school holiday

Posted by: amanda on: November 18, 2013

Yes, school holiday again. The plan? Homework. Yes, this week is going to be homework week. I would like them to finish at least 70-80% of the homework before our vacation. I told them the sooner they finish the homework, the earlier we could start our trip. That itself is a good motivation :-)
