Totally Irrelevant

Hmmm … It’s been a while. How are you all doing? It’s getting hotter and hotter over here. I guess summer is here early. Anyway, I’d better post something otherwise the gap between posts will get bigger and bigger. But then, quality is always better than quantity .. IMHO. ;)

h3. A Little Bit Of Whining

I really can’t remember the last time I took the bus in Bangkok, not until Feb 7 anyway. Well, I decided to go to the “Mac mini Party” — a weeklong, user-organized event to show off the new Mac mini, the iPod shuffle and new programs presentation. The place is near Emporium so I decided to take a bus and then the BTS. The moment I got on the bus and it started to move … all hell broke loose. —”

I can’t completely describe the experience in once paragraph so let’s put it this way, “It might be wise to get a life insurance before getting on the bus in Bangkok.”

I also need to mention that it was the cheapest trip to Emporium I ever made. Round trip bus fee was only 9 baht (5 for the regular bus and 4 for the mini bus on the way back). The BTS fee was 30 baht each trip but I have the BTS prepaid pass. … This was one of the cheapest out-of-office days.

%(me)Since when does the green mini bus fee is 4 baht?%


I’m not going to talk much about the “Mac mini Party”. Let’s just say I was expecting too much. I didn’t expect to see a beer party with technology presentations. ) Well, I should notice the word “Party” in the first place. … My bad, I guess.

h3. Southern Unrest

Really nothing much to talk about, I just want to tell you that the situation is not getting any better. There was a car bomb 2-3 days ago that killed about 6 people and about 40 injuries. The “I-know-it-all” Leader has come up with a new solution to resolve the problem. He also said ‘the situation will be better within a month’.

May I remind you that it is this same “I-know-it-all” Leader who said ‘the problem will be resolved in a week’. And he said that one year ago. %(me)He said that right after hundreds of guns were stolen from a military base in the South.%

By the way, the Leader said it’s not a “car bomb”. It’s just a bomb attached to a parked car.

bq.. “นายกฯ กล่าวด้วยว่า เหตุระเบิดเมื่อวานไม่ได้เรียกคาร์บอมบ์ เป็นการนำรถไปจอดและเอาระเบิดใส่ในรถ และที่เหตุระเบิดร้ายแรงเพราะไปโดนหม้อแปลงไฟ แต่ตัวระเบิดเป็นแบบธรรมดา ทั้งนี้งานด้านการข่าวเข้มข้นขึ้นมาก มีการแจ้งมาก่อนแล้วว่าช่วงนี้อาจจะมีเหตุระเบิดอีกหลายครั้ง แต่เป็นระเบิดที่ไม่รุนแรง ซึ่งเจ้าหน้าที่ก็ได้ทำภาพจำลองเหตุการณ์ให้ดู”


p. Whatever! Let’s call it “a bomb in a car” then! —”


h3. Desk - Mess

After 5 days into the second phase of my ongoing projects, my desk has turned into my mess. —”



Have to print out all the information provided by the client because my screen is already filled with windows!

Question: What can I do with papers that have been printed on both sides? %(me)Recycle? Is there really such thing as “recycle” here in Bangkok?%

That’s it. Have a nice day!

P.S. A quick note about the “thoughtful individual” section on the right, the site must be active. If your site has no activity for a month or so, your link will have an “[ inactive ]” flag. And if a link to your site is gone, it means that your site has been inactive for more than two months. And the moment your site has activity, the link will be back. .. Just to let you know. %(me)This is done manually — no magic behind the scene. ;)%
