Another day of summer - Hazy

Saturday, June 23, 2012
I think the sky here in Malaysia isn't getting any better every year, is it?

Today I will be taking a flight to Sarawak. As far as I can tell for 2 days I am here at Kuala Lumpur, nothing much has changed. I do see many construction projects are going on here and there, but I guess that's all.
The foods are awesome as always ^^, thanks to my cousin who treated me.

As for me, I think my health has declined since my arrival. Now I often cough and sneeze. ><. *sigh*...
I wonder how will I be after one month...
Ah, and talking about that,... I think I do have some sort of allergic reaction toward cats -.-.....
I was living so happily and healthily at Edmonton when suddenly a junior came and stayed at my house with his little kitten. Since that day onward, I was sneezing nonstop -.-...
Damn.... why must it be cats??? Family aside, what else is better to hug in this world???? Sob2.

Ah... I can't wait to finish Final Fantasy XIII and Tales of Graces f.

Another day of Spring - going back home this week

Monday, June 18, 2012
Hi ya.. uhh... hrmmm... hei!

This academic year could have been the worst so far for me. Soo many thing that I have to catch up in the last minutes. I personally think that I have come to a point where I don't know where is the boundary of the thing that I should learn for the course. The course subjects have become so sparse to the extent that even my textbook have to point out different textbook for "further read" on the subject matter.

Anyway, those misery is over for now. Well, maybe it is not a total misery, because there was fun as well.

In a couple of days, I will head back to my hometown just to see what's going on there. Hahah. I will definitely be lying if I say that I don't miss home. It's about time to refresh my tastebuds with "real" Malaysian food. Fwa ha ha.

And then, what will I do? Hrmm. I am going to improvise most of the stuff, but here's what I have in mind right now.

Do some sort of part time job (other than internship stuff).

Beat my mom's cooking. This time, I will definitely do it! Yea!

I want to expose my siblings to the library. I want to make it something routine for them. I admit I was not so much a library person, but that maybe because I wasn't that much exposed when I was little. So, I want to create a change in the way my family live once in a while. I mean, why not, right?

I want to renovate my mom's house at Malihah, as well as at my kampung. One may call it the "moonCube Expansion plan," haha!

Play with my camera and go outside Kuching. Maybe my kampung or anywhere else. I mean, I have been taking a lot of videos in Canada, so why not in Malaysia, right? Heheh.

Oh yes, that said, I am thinking of reviving my "boomdeyada" project when I go to Malaysia this time and this time, I am going to take the role of directing the footage. I have learned quite a bit from here and there and my little experience handling a camera. I hope this 2 months break will be filled with much productivity, yea!

Then,.. then.... nah, I will leave the rest for further "improvising". Basically, I simply want to stay close with my family as much as possible.

=). Jya!

Phone problem

Friday, June 8, 2012
For this entry, I just want to spread that I think I found a workaround for network crash problem that happen when Location Service is used in iOS5 on iPhone 3GS (old-bootrom) with iPad baseband (06.15.00). The proposed redsn0w 0.9.9b6 solution didn't work for me.

First of all, this idea came from a comment at

Basically, I used sn0wbreeze to create the custom IPSW and then shift-restore my 3GS via iTunes using the custom IPSW. Done.

In summary,
What I have before:
-iOS5.1 for 3GS custom made with redsn0w.
-Carrier unlocked with ultrasn0w.
-Network often crashes when Location Service is used like Google Maps, Foursquare ='(

What I have now:
-iOS5.1.1 for 3GS custom made with sn0wbreeze.
-Carrier not yet unlocked. I don't need to unlock it for now since I am using the official carrier. However I think ultrasn0w should be able to unlock it.
-So far no crash yet when Location Service is on.

I am not aware of any cons of using sn0wbreeze for the moment as it has been only a day since. Will update in case anything happen.

Update 1 (11 June 2012): I have been using Google Map and move around the city for the past 2 days. I found that the app takes longer to determine my exact location as I move from one place to another. Sometimes my "exact" location is off by 50 meter. So for now, it has not much use as GPS. Well, at least it doesn't crash.

Update 2 (21 June 2012): Did you heard about redsn0w 0.9.14.b1? Haha.
