I was really tempted me to get the new Iphone 3Gs (Speed) when I was reading the latest announcement by Apple. Besides the speed and more storage, the built-in voice function captured my attention.
It’s amazing to know that I can “speak” to the Iphone by telling what songs to play or asking the name of the song currently playing. Even more fascinating was the fact that you can tell the phone “play more songs like this” and the function will kick in. It’s not a new technology these days, but it’s still cool when it is integrated into a phone.
The launch date is slated for June 19, sharing the same date as the Nokia N97. Just like how good students compete to achieve good results, big companies fight tooth and nail to survive in this ultra-competitive industry – not a day earlier, not a day later.
I actually discovered many things around me that are very tempting and irresistible. I’m broke, super broke!!
The weather was perfectly fine and warm on the first three days, HOT!! on the following two days, and super cold and windy on the last day during our trip in Lille and Paris..
Still it couldn’t be any worse than the British weather when the temperature could drop 10 degree over a night!!!
While at work, I sketched this. I think my room was like this before I left Malaysia.
Hmm.. I missed out on the floor tiles rendering…
Blue was my favourite colour. So I asked for the walls of my room to be painted blue when we moved in. The furniture was also in blue and white.
It felt calm every time I opened my eyes in the morning. The room glowed blue in the morning when sunlight penetrated through the blue curtains and was reflected by the blue of the walls.
Eiffel Tower was absolutely impressive.
Like the snow in Norway, it was unbelievable that I was
seeing the real tower and standing on the top of the tower where Gustav Eiffel’s office once was. I suffer from mild acrophobia, so I felt an immense sense of achievement when I managed to climb all 668 steps to the second level, and then the the lift to the highest level. I kept telling myself that it was absolutely safe to go up on a 120-year-old structure designed by a large team of engineers.
We took the stairs instead of the lift because we stood in the wrong queue and couldn’t be bothered to switch. It was also 3.50 Euro cheaper.
I climbed all my way up without stopping for a breather because my mind was more occupied by fear than by tiredness. The trip to the top was exhausting, not because of the long queue or climbing the many stairs but because of my shivering and tense leg muscles.
couldn’t expect any better from a compact camera..
However, it was quite a memorable experience visiting the iconic building. We went back another evening to take some night photos. It was already crowded when we reached. We waited patiently among all the people, saw a suitable spot and immediately hogged the spot for 45 minutes until the next hour for the next light show.
