My connection is friggin slow

I’ve subscribed to maxis broadband for nearly a month now. The first 2 weeks I’ve experienced the fastest connection speed ever going thru my PC, but then after that the speed dwindles to nearly 70KBps…..and now that I’ve surpassed the quota of 3GB, my speed drops even further to around 5-20KBps.

You must be asking why, in the first place I subscribed to this network. First of all I live in the forest, and there isn’t any coverage except with celcom and maxis broadband, secondly my friend who lives nearby said that the celcom broadband that he is currently using sucked…therefore maxis is the only choice.

I’ll wait till I pay my bill for the first month, and if its still slow, I’ll have to switch again…….

Deep Purple - Highway Star guitar solo

I'm telling you, this fler is DA MAN...... I weeped to the sound of his strings

Go on a second honeymoon at taxpayers’ expense!

I’m referring to the Star paper yesterday regarding the article on `Go on a second honeymoon at state’s expense’. I must frankly say that it’s a pretty stewpet idea coming from the guv, I don’t mean to say that they deserve to divorce, but if they can’t save their marriage themselves, WHY oh why does the Guv want to intervene?. This is like opening the doors to more corruption and fund abuse.

SUGGESTIONS: Practice polygamy, so abang eric can take care of your wife

Help!!! My friend has got balls the size of a peanut

See what my collegemate Ang Hien Tee has to say about his manhood

The Fortis Pilot’s Chronograph Hungarian Air force Limited Edition Automatic

This is the Fortis chronograph Hungarian Air force limited edition automatic chronograph watch. I think it looks kinda special, with its titanium like finishing, and the air force logo on its dial, and only 200 of these will be produced,making them very rare.

I’m not sure what kind of engine is used here, but I found that there’s an annoying clunk, when I turn hour hands past 12 o clock. It is also very easy to tell them time at a glance becasue the dial is clearly marked and its big enough.

This watch belongs to a friend of mine, which he is going to sell it off…. Unfortunately, I’m not buying it, chiefly because it looks so much like a SEIKO or a CASIO, in other words VERY JAPANESE like, and the night lume is not that great either.

Damn… I’m starting to love FORTIS watches

Review of the Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Automatic (white dial)

The beautifull fortis marinemaster white

No diver extension, what a turnoff

A lume shot

Nice and tight. The silicon bracelet grips your wrist securely

The gaps on the bracelet traps dirt, I have to clean it everyday.

That's all there is in the package, a small cheapo box, and 2 peices of paper...

The longest lasting lume that i've ever seen

Imagine wearing this to the disco!!!, You'll never have to buy neon sticks anymore

At first, I saw this particular watch thru the fortis magazine which I rarely see it because I’m not into this brand… BUT when I saw the b42 marine master, I was really attracted to the lume it offers. Since I am a fan of watches with bright lumes, I decided that this watch is the one to buy over the BALL Aviator GMT.

I bought this watch from THE HOURGLASS pavilion K.L, and it retails at around RM5, 910.00. I knew this watch quite a rare sight in K.L, thus without checking at other shops, I quickly grab it. Ohh… and there’s also a Fortis B42 marine master phantom which is also on sale and it also attracts my attention, but then the lume lets it down. BUT if I’m in the market for a sinister watch, the phantom will definitely be it, but right now, the white dial marine master will stay on my wrist at this particular moment.

Ok, the price of this watch is actually quite affordable and I think it gives superior value, considering the amount of watch you get. This watch looks different from the ones I saw from the fortis website, in real life, it actually looks bigger and prettier than the ones in the web, and its quite thick too, and the white strap really screams…. I mean it really attracts attention and it looks really really special. One thing about the strap too is that it doesn't have diver extension, a real letdown..:-(

The watch comes with some certificates, a dog tag, a box and nothing else…..thats it, not even a manual in sight.

The watch itself is made of steel, and it’s quite heavy, but the silicone strap helps it to grip your wrist securely and Its quite easy to scratch the watch simply because its thick. The silicone is thick, and the watch body is thick too, looks more like armband to me, but then I can’t refrain from saying how tough and solid it felt.

I’m not sure about the accuracy of the watch though, because I only had it for 2 days, I’ll probably leave an update here after 1 month of use, and after that I won’t know if it will still looks the same because I work with engines, and time will tell if dirt and oil will discolor the straps.

I also noticed that there is no screw in crown for this watch…...My perception on dive watches are that they must always have some kind of complex lock systems such as ones in rolex, panerai, and ball hydrocarbons, but this dive watch uses the normal push/pull system which is similar to the ones in Oris Williams F1 with 50m water resistant. I’ve read thru the watchuseek forum, and I found out that even without the crownlock, it can still outperform other dive watches which are more expensive than this, and FYI this watch is water resistant up to 200m/20 bar

The movement is a typical swiss ETA movement, but personally, I think this one spins more and faster than any other watches that I own, in other word it felt similar to the valjoux movement. The dial is very clear and easy to read, the day and date is also very clear and very sharp… but 1 thing that I would like to complain is the day indicator, which comes with `DUAL LANGUAGE’.

You can actually see the brightness of the lume yourself thru the pictures. 1 word….awesome……. This watch is currently the first in my last for brightness, and it even betters the BALL, of course it needs to be charged, but then after charged, its friggin bright, and it can last from night till dawn.

As for conclusion, I’ll probably rate a good 90% for this watch, simply because its really worth every single penny I paid for it, and it really feels solid, and even the straps are secured with screws, and not spring bars, and not to mention how special it feels on your wrist.

And the downside of this watch will probably be the color of this watch, because I find it a little hard to match my other clothes, and sometimes it will also tend to attract unwanted attention, because when you go from a sunny area into a darker ones, your watch will glow so brightly.

The Isuzu D max 2.5 Turbo

I've just got hold of the isuzu D-max 2.5 turbo 4X2 for review. This unit here cost around rm70k+, and its currently the second best selling pickup truck in malaysia besides Toyota Hilux.

This pickup feels underpowered compared to its biger engined brother which is at 3000cc, and this pickup is rear wheel driven. This pickup which like other pickups comes with wishbone independant front suspension, and rigid rear axle with leaf springs. In short the ride is bumpy and the rear felt unstable at mid corner bumps.

I'm not sure about the reliability of the suspension though, as the suspension components does not look solid enough. I've heard complaints from my cousin in Lahad datu Sabah, that even Toyota Hilux had hard time with the road conditions there. Doubt if the Dmax will survive there.

And, If i'm in a market for pickup trucks, and i don't go offroad, This Dmax will definitely get my money, because its cheap, BUT.... if i want a pickup that goes offroad, I'll take the TOYOTA
