新年快乐

Happy Chinese New Year, people. Just because my new year is going to suck like my vacuum cleaner with a new dust bag doesn't mean that you can't enjoy yours.

I went out to try to buy a pair of shoes. Bad time! My size is the most common size and the shoes were naturally all sold out. Bought 2 eyeshadows instead. One in a shade of green, and the other in blue. They mix together into a lovely turquoise. I've fallen in love. The only thing is... the colour clashes with my new outfits.

You can't even have a bit of new year cheer nowadays. :(

Warning: Shocking schedule! Put here for the sole purpose of stressing myself out to maximise productivity everytime I even think about surfing.

I spilled water on my keyboard during my late-night studying and now it doesn't work anymore. :(

[edit] The on-screen keyboard sucks!

After weeks and weeks of watching it, the iGallop thingy is really starting to get on my nerves even though I found it extremely hilarious at first. What the heck was Osim thinking? Who the heck will buy THAT anyway? It seems like humping a pillow will be equally effective.

Speed Reading

I snatched the reserved copy of The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella from Sharifah today and I had to promise to complete it in 2 days max. Thank goodness I managed to finish it in a matter of hours.

And now I totally want to lay my hands on the last book I haven't read, Shopaholic and Sister. Oh, and all the other books that she wrote under the name of Madeleine Wickham, which I heard have much more substance.

I Watched TV

Marketing has poisoned my blood. When watching a soap opera, I can't even properly appreciate the moment of a couple stopping in front of a phone booth to kiss without noticing the big fat logo of SingTel stuck on the top of the phone booth. I'd wonder, How much did SingTel pay for that?!

MSN Invites

Who wants MSN Messenger Beta invites? I have 4 left 3 left 2 left none left. It rocks, you get to rename your contacts so you won't have to see their annoyingly long nicknames anymore.

[edit]Here are a bunch of other features.

Netrillium Sucks

January 13th, 2006 Comments(5)

Whatever you do, do not sign up with Netrillium. Not only is the background music that reloads on every page load annoying, their customer service sucks big time. And when you're signing up for a service, that isn't very good news.

This was what happened:

  • I wanted to transfer my domain, so I filled out their form and paid up.
  • I waited.
  • No news received even though they said they will get back to me within 24 hours.
  • I took the liberty to e-mail them because it had been days.
  • Received an e-mail asking if I have given them my EPP code.
  • I had no clue what an EPP code was, so I e-mailed back and asked them what that is.
  • No news for days again.
  • Got informed by Will that a EPP code is the auth code, which I totally provided them with.
  • Got really sick of them and asked them for a refund.
  • They pretended that I never asked for a refund and asked me for my EPP code again and said I didn't provide them with it.
  • I got mad pissed and asked them to look at their own bloody form which totally wouldn't let me proceed and pay for the service if I had not provided the fuqn EPP code. And besides, even if I hadn't given them that code, shouldn't they have taken the initiative to ask for it instead of pretending that I never made an order?
  • No news from them again.

They fuqn suck.
