Acid Throwing Suspect in Hong Kong Held ::

Looks like they may have finally caught the man who has been throwing acid into the streets of Mong Kok from high buildings, one of the most busiest places in Hong Kong. I just happened to be there the day before it happened once. Hope this is the real culprit and there are no more such attacks....


RealD 3D Glasses and Cineworld Cinema Waterworks ::

Decided to go see Avatar for my first "RealD 3D" movie experience despite the nasty "big freeze" we're having here in the UK. I think it was around -5C when we were out. It ended up being quite eventful... First we had a guy snoring (at least I think he was...) midway through the adverts which got some giggles from the audience. Then about 20...


The Cold Freeze, UK 2010 ::

The news has been about nothing but the hazardous snowy conditions all over the UK just now as well as other countries within the northern hemisphere. Flights suspended, cars becoming stranded on the motorway because engines stopping, people slipping on the hardened icy snow, water pipes bursting etc. Oh yes, walking uphill on...


New Residents in the Garden? ::

New Year's morning and it looks like we might have a Blue Tit couple moving in. It perched outside the bird house for quite a while while its (presumably) other half was scouting the area. Usually we don't see these birds around until spring then they fly in and out until the late evening. It's pretty sad to learn they only have an average...


A Look Back At 2009 ::

Less than 1 hour before it's 2010. Snow's still lying around pretty thick but I think people are gathered in the city for the big count down. A lovely clear moonlit night for the fireworks! Today, I thought I'd spend the last post of 2009 looking back at the various things I've written about on this site. First off, we'll talk briefly about...


Advanced MP3 Player's Surprise Santa Sack ::

Was browsing around looking for a new DAP because my current one's built-in battery is wearing down to only 2 hours. Then I found this - A "Santa Sack" filled with random goodies from Advanced MP3 Players' shop for £5 ( £7 including P&P). It's kind of like paying for a raffle ticket really and in this case, you have a chance to win a DAP, pair...


On the Way to a Smile Novel Translation Complete

And so, what is the moral of all those short stories or rather, what was the message Nojima was trying to get across...? It's probably along the lines of, "If you stay positive you will live a healthy life and be able to overcome anything - It will get you on the way to a smile." Actually, things are more easily said than done ^^; Hope you enjoy...


Europe Suggests Maximum Volume Limit on DAPs ::

A maximum volume limit of 85 decibels may soon be imposed on DAPs sold in Europe according to the BBC. However, users will be able to override the setting to bump it up to 100 decibels. Apparently, people are having hearing problems because they are turning up the volume too high in traffic to drown out the noise and some players go up to 120...


Chinglish...? Isn't Bad English Called Engrish? ::

According to the news the recession is over but while walking about in town, I found another big retailer Borders closing down which had been running for many years now. So we've had three big long running stores closing down here now - Virgin Megastores, Woolworths and now Borders. Going to be a while before things are looking up in the...


500GB Maxtor DiamondMax Hard Drive Dies

Turned on the PC today and it was stuck at the BIOS screen trying to detect the drives. Turns out my year old Maxtor DiamondMax 22 SATA hard drive might be dead - I hardly even use it and it was mainly for storage purposes. I had a whole bunch of unsorted photos that I took from events such as this year's bonfire night on it that I didn't back up so...
