The New Whole Red Alert 3

I wonder how many of you are C&C fans in UGAME? I pre-order the Red Alert 3 Premium Edition last month and already arrived in my post. I have to say I am very disappointed because EA has made an empty promise about a free RA3 game instead I gotten a RA3 T-shirt and a 2GB ugly pen drive. But I am better than the others because there are lots of buyers out there don’t even have a single free game and extra items like mine above. The previous best C&C collections I got are Razer Death Adder (EA version) mouse and Razer mouse pad including t-shirts from Command & Conquer 3 and Kane Wrath with very good bargains. Not sure what happen to EA these days the bundle and limited version becoming non attractive anymore.Anyway, what does the Red Alert 3 Premium version contains inside the tin? Check out the picture below for reference.1x Installation DVD Game 1x Bonus Documentary DVD Video 1x Red Alert 3 Sound Track 1x Future Beta Key 1x Red Alert 3 Bonus Map 1x Warhammer Online Exclusive i…

Does Credit Card Make You Own More Debts?

Today Brudirect has posted an interesting topic related to our daily life using credit card. According to the news, she was a highly educated and earns $3,000 per month while she ended up over with $9,000 debt because of the credit card. I wonder who the blame is. The money spender or the credit card made of plastic without life and soul? Probably, the boyfriend doesn’t work? Nothing to shame about that and it’s normal these days for woman taking good care of men. I see that a lot and I am not one of them.Owing a basic credit card is easy nowadays and not to mention you can pay later by next month. The first credit card I owned was Master supplementary card under my sister. I remember my salary was around $500 per month which I didn’t expect the bank would allow it. I did applied for Visa for the second time, but was rejected. Then later, I applied again myself for Visa card because of inconvenience using the security device and check the correct amount I had to pay using my sister on…

My Seagate FreeAgent 160GB Send Back to S’pore

It just did happen before my Palit Prize card fall under the same fate. I can’t believe my luck have to be so bad. Well, the only option I can do is to send it back directly to Seagate International in Singapore for warranty, since it carry for FIVE years warranty compared to SIX month or possibly ONE year only in Brunei.I already send out my portable hard disk yesterday and the postage just cost me B$4.10 including registering. If I had the money, I would definitely send it by Speed Post. However, the question is, I don’t really know if Seagate might charge me for the shipping back my portable HDD. This is quite interesting I hope I will find out after mine arrived at Singapore.

Damn! Video Card is Faulty!

I can’t believe it my luck is so bad in early morning when I start setting up my new PC and found out my Palit GeForce 8500GT Super+ 1GB has problem displaying words in DOS. I already contacted Palit and they willing to arrange to sent another replacement for me since the prize card doesn’t carry any warranty. =3

I hope might get it next month.

The Youngest Sex Change in Da World?

Picture from: The Sun UKI just spotted this one from a game forum which is quite a hot topic. Her name is Kim Petras, from Germany, and she will be releasing her first English album. You can check out the music at Youtube (more here). Damn 'she' does look pretty, well she started sex change when 'he' was twelve! Man, I am starting to very worried about this world.A GIRL believed to be the youngest person in the world to have a sex change is set to become a pop star. German Kim Petras – originally called Tim – changed sex after she started hormone treatment at the age of just TWELVE. Now 16 years old Kim is ready to storm the charts with her first album after landing a record deal.The teenager has overcome years of taunts and bullying to release her first CD after becoming a cult hit on MySpace and You Tube.Kim, who is now officially registered as a female and has long blonde hair and blue eyes, said: “My music is most important to me at the moment. It’s the way I can b…

PC Start Building This Week

Finally! At last I got my processor from the capital. I should be getting it tomorrow and do some cleaning on my table. For now, I am concentrating looking for latest drivers and update the Autopatcher for Vista to the latest for fast setup on Sunday.The first problem I am facing is the Asus P5Q Pro motherboard I brought from my friend shop. The Realtek audio is somehow quite different model and is using ALC1200 which is not even listed on the website. I am wondering if the new drivers R2.09 might even worked with it since it was not listed. Anyway, I will download the original drivers from Asus in case it fails. If any of you reading this and using Asus board similar to mine. Let me know if the new drivers work. I’m going too tried out the Readltek 3D Soundback too.Secondly, I look for the new chipset drivers from official Intel website. It comes to my surprise that Intel has removed it from their support download. I wonder why? Well, it seems like I have to depend on Asus support do…

Creative Online Store Now Shipping to Brunei

It was a boring day in the office and tried to look for some new online store in Brunei. Didn’t expect the Creative online store would shows up in my Google search. I can’t say when it exactly started offering for Bruneian buyers. But the prices are pretty attractive and some promotions you might find interested worth purchasing on at Creative official store.This is truly a good move for Creative, but and of course not good for the local shops who tried selling Creative products. Anyway, the good news is we all pay in Brunei dollar and many of their products come with one year warranty. The shipping fee is depending on the weight on the items you order and there will provide tracking number of your orders which is pretty good for me. Be warning, however, if you order speakers to Brunei. There will be possible taxes in the custom post office. I do not have the figures on that; it is recommend asking the local custom first before you make a purchase. Only sound cards will not get tax si…

MLM is Bad Business

Found this video from Lampe Berger Help blog, worth watching if you don't understand what is MLM. I have a friend doing it and he is now a full time LB promoter. he didn't manage to fool me but convince me I am wrong about their business. XD I am glad Brunei are protecting its people from getting fool by MLM.

The Pact – Free Movie Episode

Check out the nice short Chinese episodes from Johnnie Walker. I’m sure many Chinese friends out there could recognize one or two guys in there. Don’t worried about the missing translation, you can find a English subtitle on every six (currently four) episode. The movie episodes also offer a free download. However, I do encounter problem downloading the episode two to four due to the missing file from their server and I’m not sure how to report this JW. Don't worry, you can watch it in flash.Official Link: http://www.keepwalking.asia

My Red Alert 3 Got Tax!

It was confusing when I get my first 5% tax in the post office. I have been buying PC games for five years and never got a single tax. So the question is, why now? I actually end up in the Internal Security Department to confirm the problem I am facing and get more information before I start another purchasing.The custom officers at the department are friendly with me except one of the custom ladies pissed me off in the post office when she said I am wasting her time asking nonsense about why I am getting tax. I wonder who really actually wasting the time here? Her sit is just a few second away from her or I am the one driving to the post office and to Internal Security Department to clarify the problem wasted for half an hour? She takes her job for granted and abuse her power. I did not want start a war with her because I eventually might encounter her next time, so I decided not to put up a fight with her. You won’t know she might fuck you around. Anyway, for your tax information fr…

Woman Gave Away Fortune for 'Eternal Life'

What a dumb thing to do asking for an eternal life from feng shui master. I do not believe this sort of things. If feng shui can make these wish of eternal life exist, I don’t think this world would really want to spend their funding on science and researching anti-aging. I believe new war world might even begin for the sake of it and not to mention they will become the world richest person you will never imagine.

The image of the feng shui was already damage. I have to say this idiot do have the biggest ball in Hong Kong for making such a promise. All and simple reason are people are just thrust of making quick money. I do, of course, but not this kind bloody way. Read the news over here.

Busy! Busy! Life Suck! :3

Ha! I think this year it’s another fuck up year. All my stuffs and PC broken one by one, giving me a lot headache. Hai~ I have to rush my friend for the CPU real quick, all else it just matter of time when it going to stop working.Anyway, not much activity lately for me these past few weeks and expect more less blogging. It just something came up unexpectedly and earns some personal income to fix my repair cost. Probably I think because end of the year is coming so close and I have no idea what the hell am I supposed to do. That’s why I always living in a boring life thinking about fixing my income. =3Well, next month it’s my cousin wedding and she born at the same year as me. She will be the first one getting married. Really happy for her finding a great partner who can take care of her and also a good family who like her very much. As for me, a long way and I might end up being single forever. I have no idea and yet have plan for looking new partners. Some girls out there are tellin…

New Dell E228WFP Monitor

Finally I decided to purchase the value version wide screen LCD from Dell. This Dell E228WFP monitor is quite enough most users who like Photoshop, 3D Designs and watching movies. If you are lucky enough, you will be able to get the price of B$368.00 offer price from Dell Singapore (Sintex is coming, keep your eyes open). You might even get a good deal for other higher and larger screen version. Well, actually I suppose to get the Dell S2409W Full HD Monitor which cost B$489.00 (offer price). I change my mind because I still own my friend money so I have to be very careful on my spending.I have to say I am satisfy with the overall viewing and more spacious on my desk. You just need some adjustment over the brightness and contrast when you first powering up. Movies, TV Shows and Anime I have watch are fine. This is depending on what quality format you actually watching. I tested some HD format and they are good and I’m sure running Blu-Ray movies will definitely gives you great viewing…
