PS3 Slim 250gb

I've been thinking about buying an Upscaling DVD or BluRay player for the past 2 weeks. It's to be used with the 42" Plasma TV in my bedroom.. Such a I decided to end the headache and just buy another PS3 today. It's incredibly cheap now. So much cheaper than the fat PS3 I bought a few years back. It's slimmer, lighter and quieter. It's a hell of a lot quieter actually. The fat PS3 I have in the living room sounds like a jet engine with full afterburners on. LOL.

I also bought a few games including the awesome God of War 3. Just reached the 1st save point and I'm absolutely loving it. Will clock a few more hours of the game before I write more about it.

Anyway, here's today's loot.

Here's the new lean, mean machine out of the box. I prefer the looks of the old, fat PS3 though. The shiny fat PS3 has a really avantgarde look to it. The new PS3 Slim just looks like a cheap black thing.

Anyway, it's so cheap now, I really don't mind the cheap looks. It's gonna be sitting inside the TV cabinet anyway. Can't complain much when it costs about half of what I paid for the old fat PS3. Hehe

Movie Marathon

I've been so busy with the house renovation for the past 2 months. It's a really tiring thing to go through. I'm sure I'll be really happy once everything is done but right now, it's a huge pain in the ass and leaves little time for anything else.

I was feeling a bit rundown so my wife suggested a movie day. Off we went to watch Green Zone. After we came out from that, there were Daybreaker posters all over the place. So......... bought the tickets and went back in for another movie. Hehehe. It was a pretty good day. Both movies were good. Green Zone was excellent, Daybreaker was pretty good too.

Being a Monday, I had the luxury of picking out our favorite Couple's seats for both shows, right in the middle of the back row. Hehe. Check out the tickets.


It's been a looooong time since we had a movie marathon. Next time, we'll try n make it a 3 movie day. Hehehe.

Pioneer Plasma TV at McDonald's. OMFG!

Holy Moly mother of TVs......... I just noticed this looooovely TV while having my breakfast at McDonald's. It's an uber Pioneer Plasma TV at McDonald's of all places. Most commercial places like restaurants and shopping malls use Samsung but this McDonald's is 1337. I've never seen any other restaurant using Pioneer TVs.

Here's a picture of the Pioneer TV at McDonald's.


Free breakfast at McDonald's

Check this out. I'm sitting at McDonald's now having this wonderful Sausage McMuffin with egg breakfast and it's freeeeeeeee.


I got the coupons a few days ago during lunch at McDonald's The Curve. Thank You McDonald's Malaysia. Hehehe

Eco friendly lawn mower

I decided to do my bit for the environment by going green. I bought a human powered lawn mower to save the planet. No need for electricity or fuel. A nice fat pizza and a can of Coke after mowing the lawn will do. Hehehe.

It takes a fair bit of effort but it's good exercise so I'm not complaining. I get to save the planet and keep fit at the same time. The only guy who's not gonna like this is my gardener. I've told him to stop mowing my lawn and he's lost out on the income he derives from mowing my lawn. Haha.

It's a Bosch AHM30 and it cost me rm334(US$100) including the optional grass catcher. They're called Push-Reel Mowers. Anyway, here's how my new lawn mower looks like.

The mower with optional grass catcher sitting on top of the box.

Opening up the box.

Tadaaaaaaaaaaaa. Here's my contribution to saving the planet. Hehehe.

I think it's superbbbbbbbb coz it doesn't make any noise like electric and gas powered mowers. I can mow my lawn anytime or day, even early on a Sunday morning if I so wish. Mowing the lawn with an electric or gas powered mower on a Sunday morning will get you killed in most neighbourhoods. LOL.

5D MkII at ISO-12800

1st time I used ISO-12800 out of curiosity. Turned out pretty usable I reckon. This was shot on JPEG and straight out of camera without any editing. If it was shot in RAW and cleaned up a wee bit with something like Noise Ninja, it would most definitely be usable.

What do you guys think?
