To buy or not to buy? That's the question that I keep asking myself back then. Fortunately, reality bites back and after a deep thought, I decided to give it a miss. There goes my saving if I bought it and furthermore I don't think it is a necessity. I'm still satisfy with my current mobile and I really don't think it is wise for me to buy the iPhone now. Maybe later on when I secured a more suitable job then I will opt for one but definitely not now.
Some interesting story regarding iPhone taken from the net...
iPhone arrives with factory worker's photosAugust 27, 2008, 5:47 pm
A British buyer of Apple's iPhone was surprised to discover his new phone's camera already contained photos - apparently taken in the Chinese factory where it was made.
The pictures showed a woman of Asian appearance, dressed in factory clean room garments, smiling and gesturing in front of other partially-assembled iPhones.
iPhones are manufactured in China by Foxconn.
The iPhone user provided the pictures to the Apple fan website macrumors.com under the screen name "markm49uk".
"Once it had been activated on iTunes I found that the home screen already had a photo set against it," markm49uk wrote.
"It would appear that someone on the production line was having a bit of fun."
A tribute website dedicated to the woman in the photos has appeared at iphonegirl.net.
Nik. He is really and ardent fan of Beemer. From clothing to lid and to his bike, everything got to be a beemer.
BMW R1200 GS, yup a 1200cc bike. Bigger engine capacity than most compact car available.
"Care to ride???" he asked me and I declined the offer straight away. It is a new bike, it is really an expensive one and I've never ridden a bike with engine capacity bigger than 750cc.
She's really a monster compared to the other bikes around it.
This is really something to motivate me to work harder (ya, I want a new bike too).

The best way to spend the weekend is having a BBQ picnic by the infamous Yarra River.
This time around, we're celebrating Lyn final week here in Melbourne. She already finished her study and she is now counting her days to go back home.
Seafood galore. Nice view of the Yarra River from here.
Testing, testing, yup, it's not ready yet...
A dash of herbs to complete the foods.
Seafoods everywhere (some of them are inside my stomach already).
'Air Asia' passing by.
I'm really full at the end of the day but it sure was fun.

I used to stay here for quite awhile while waiting to find a permanent place to stay. Actually I did bluffed the warden saying that I would prefer to stay there as a 'Hall Resident' (during that time they're short of guys to do all of the hard works).
I did have my fair share of experience here including weird one. During the first week of staying here, certain 'extra paranormal' things happen to some fellow resident (lucky it was not me) and as a countermeasure the warden held 'Yassin' recitation every night and invited one young 'ustaz' to do some 'cleaning' (with salt & pepper). As for me, the first things that ran in my mind are "What??? Here in Melbourne??? I though in here there is no such thing as gh**t" Haha, after that incident, it really gave me goosebumps everytime I ventured the hall alone.
This place used to be an old hospital for the elderly before the Malaysian Government took over (I'm not sure about this fact) and no wonder if there's some weird thing happening late at night. Wait till you see the laundry room (there is a small door that leads to the basement of the building and also a secret passage to an unknown place and the door to it has been locked to avoid any untoward incidents). The 'ustaz' did say something like "Ermm, kat sini memang 'kuat' skit dari tempat lain, cuba kurang kan berada kat sini". Duhhhh, I'm outta here... Haha...
This is Karim, the new hall's caretaker. Since all of the current residents need to vacate the place due to some renovation (except for 2 peoples) taking places, the warden decided to 'hire' another 'person' who knows no fear to safeguard the hall during the night.
The reasons - Since most of the time the building is left unattended (you know what happen to building that is being left unattended right), might as well put something to 'cheer' the place up.

I'm nearly at the end of my journey (study).
Time really flies fast. It felt like just yesterday that I arrived here.
Got to plan my next course of action. I'm not getting any younger. Haha.
For my final semester, I've to give my best for it. No more slacking down.
I still got a long, long way to go before I reach my 'destination'.

It's fun, it's simple and I don't need to learn it the hard way.
A journey down the slope.
Then, back again to the top of the slope to begin playing with it again.
Some friends said that I should play with toboggan first if it was my first encounter with snow. Guess what, I opted for snowboard instead.
Next time, definitely I'll try toboggan. It looks like fun.
When is it??? I'm not sure yet but it won't be soon.
Snowboard??? Maybe have to wait for next winter (if I'm still here, who knows).

Yeah, you heard it right. My foots are aching to play snowboard again.
Riding the ski lift, feeling the cold breeze passing my face, viewing the crowds from above, I missed those moments.
Not forgetting, chatting with fellow passenger asking from tips (to kill our time while riding the ski lift).
Nice weather and lots of peoples. Really colourful.
As far as the eyes can see.
Learning how to snowboard from afar. I didn't enroll for that class so while capturing pictures, I couldn't help but to eavesdrop.
Thick snow compared than last time.
Nearly time to go home.
As much as I love snowboarding, it is actually an expensive sport to play.
