Aisyah seldom plays the toys stored in the plastic box in the living room and the collection keeps growing. She doesn't own many of the toys in the box because most of the toys were her cousin's since my mil is looking after him in the daytime. I think I'm going to put all the toys that she didn't want to play anymore in another plastic box under our bed and maybe pass them to Adam, another one of Aisyah's cousin since Aisyah only comes back on weekends.

I don't think it's a good idea having these boxes since most of the toys won't see daylight again unless she digs into the box. The living room looks neater but it still defeats the purpose of having a kid to play with the toys. Even her books are kept in the plastic box. Although the non-board books are already torn and look pathetic now, I still do think that these books should be living a worthy booklife instead of being kept inside the boxes. I do hope that we could get a small bookshelf to keep all her books and keep as lil toys as possible. Afterall how many toys can a kid play with anyway?

I found some comic relief after my PC died of a sudden heart attack yesterday.

Swimming with the piranhas anyone?

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

Found this on wikihow....How to swim safely with piranhas.

1. Know where piranhas live. Piranhas are freshwater fish and live only in South America (although occasionally a stray pet piranha turns up in a river elsewhere). They reside almost exclusively in still or slow-moving streams or lakes, and they do not tolerate cold water.

2. Avoid desperate piranhas. As previously mentioned, piranhas are usually mild-mannered and skittish. They rarely, if ever, attack a much larger animal unless they are starving. Food supplies are at their lowest during the dry season, when water levels fall dramatically, so avoid entering piranha-infested waters during these times. When water levels are high and food plentiful, piranhas pose almost no danger to humans. If in doubt, ask the locals.

3. Avoid making a fuss. Recent studies suggest that desperate piranhas are attracted more by activity than by the scent of blood. Thus, when crossing a river, try to minimize your movement and swim or walk with smooth, fluid motions. Avoid talking, and don't use flashlights or lanterns when crossing at night. However, Caymans (South American alligators) are more active and hunt at night. Therefore traversing open water at night, especially at night without lights could be more risky due to the potential for attacks by caimans.

4. Create a diversion. As a last-ditch effort, you can try to create a diversion by releasing an animal carcass or a substantial quantity of raw meat downstream from your desired crossing point. Keep in mind, however, that the piranhas can indeed strip the animal to the bones in a matter of minutes or even seconds, so you'll want to cross very quickly before the fish catch wind of you.
How the hell would you know a desperate piranhas from a non-desperate one? And how would you walk through the rivers while minimising your movement. Actually they should create point number 5. Just avoid a river infested with piranhas, you morons!

I remember watching National Geographic where there's this group of animals crossing a river with piranhas in it. They don't get eaten but got neutered instead. Apparently the piranhas can only get the dangly bits that is more manageable. So guys, beware hor! hehe.

For more know-hows, maybe you can try these topics as well:

the secret project

Friday, January 05, 2007

my zod2 has been acting cranky lately. I hope it will last me long long time...well, maybe for the next 5years. Even if it doesn't, I do hope it will still last me till palmpilot's secret project has been revealed. By then maybe I could just chuck away my wonky lg phone (that's another story) and get a pdaphone. A treo680 with wifi would be sweeeet or I will just jump ship to get a dopod c800 instead.

Jeff Hawkins was the brains & genius behind the now palmpilot and he was the fellow who started handspring. I still think that Jeff Hawkins is the Steve Jobs of mobile computing devices and hopefully this new device will be like the imac that moved Apple.
