Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12
This seems to be more value for money than the Sony W80, it's cheaper with almost the same resolutions. I read the reviews from dcresource, this cam scored pretty high.
What i liked most is the fast shutter speed (at least that's what i read from the reviews). The lumix series is really good. This is an old model and consider a low end cam nowadays but it suits my needs.
Will check this out at the IT Show.

I like reading interesting news especially funny things done by local singaporeans and will ocasionally search STOMP for some interesting news and happenings, but this one really caught my eyes. Titled: China woman lets son pee in the train!

"When the train was going towards Tanjong Pagar Mrt (time around 9pm), a China woman sitting opposite me brought her son to the door of the train to PEE. "At that time, two passengers were standing near the door and nobody said anything. "After peeing, the woman brought her son back to the seat and continued the journey as if nothing happened. "

What's wrong with Singaporeans? Can endure this kind of things. Now we know that Tanjong Pagar MRT is pee station. This women conveniently bring her son to the door and pee! Some commuters even stepped on the pee, i wonder if they slipped and fall.

This could be the only kind of act in this world, i cannot imagine that if this woman continues to do that.

Referring to my harddisk, i can only use 60gb. Need to get an external hdd during the IT Show, but i have not decide on which one 80gb? 320gb?

Better get one soon, lost my data to a hdd crash in January. Everything is gone! Didn't buy an extra hdd to back up my data. Have to buy one real soon before history repests itself.

60+80, hmm 140gb, may be enough. or 60+320gb!!! Saw one at House of Mouse going for $80 for a 80gb hdd from Samsung. Very sleek design.

See what type of offer i can get from the IT Show.

Best deal

Looking at this digicam now, 7.2 megapixel.
Been taking photos with my mobile till now, it's time to get a digicam. I am not looking at 10 mgp cam, 7.2 is good enough for me now.
Hmm...i will take a look for this during the IT Show.

Asia Trader & Investor Convention 2008

Wednesday, February 27, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Organized by NextView

Kick off on 1 March 2008, Saturday at 9am, the event will last for 2 days at Suntec City. This will be a very good event packed with a lot of content with 38 SPEAKERS! A lot of interesting topics throughout the 2 days event, and best of all the admission is Free for all Investasia members.

See if I could take some photographs or tape the event. It has been awhile since I attended a seminar like this, the last one was organized by IPP for SIAS members but it’s very disappointing as the seminar inclined towards insurance and financial planning.

Saw a nice Jack Wolfskin solfshell jacket, but i can't a single JWS retail outlet in Singapore.

But it's still available from JWS website, the price is a little steep at £65.00 exclude shipping. I only have one jacket which i use in my office. This design is abit too casual for office but perfect for outdoor.

Serve Nokia with a Writ

Monday, February 25, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Read about the story of Ms Tan's claim against Nokia from the web few days back, I read it again today in the Straitstimes.

Bad publicity for Nokia but i don't think it's Nokia's policy to reject a refund, it's more likely due to less well-trained employee. It just doesn't make sense for a company to piss off the customers. Unfortunately, fingers are already pointing to the whole of Nokia for this incident.

It's so ridiculous that the RM actually ignored the order of tribunal.

The last time i used a Nokia phone was erm....more than 8 years ago, it was the smallest phone in the world at that time!-8210. Since then, i have been using SE. I am looking to go back to Nokia soon, but E61i was sold out. :( Waiting for the stock to come in maybe before the end of this week.

Nice phone, slightly wide but features wise, it has everything i am looking for.

Back to the topic.

Ms Tan won in the end. Really must praise her for her preserverance, she must be really damn pissed off with such customer service.

It's a shame that a small issue that could be resolved initially turned out this way.

Oh, it's the same model i am eyeing.

Walked past a Dzi shop yesterday, so I went in out of curiousity to check out some of the dzi beads they are offering there. They are nicely package and these dzi beads make nice accessories so I decided to get one to use as a key chain.

Saw a 3-Eye dzi bead and I was quoted $338 for it and that's too expensive. With $200-$300 more I could easily get someone to fengshui my whole house.
Was I taken as cai tao? or that's the market price for a dzi bead?

We have won the bid to host the Youth Olympic Games in 2010 after competing with 11 other countries and finally down to 2-Singapore and Moscow.

News came last evening, we have won.

This is a great, we are expecting YOG in 2010 and Formula One in the last quarter of this year.
