What to do when your iphone got "wet"

I dropped my iphone5 in the water last time we went Sorrento for Christmas..
it was a silly accident on the side of the pool..
and there it goes, my iphone5 flying on top of the sky and landing flat on the bottom of the pool, all wet...

Ever since, i have been iphone-less..
and since iphone5 is using a micro simcard, i cant put the card in other phone..
meaning, i am un-contactable on that number.. which pretty much is the only number that majority of my friends had.. i do have another phone and another number.. but it almost feels like a one way communication for me.. where no one call or text me.. and there is no apps or other random stuff that i usually do with my iphone..
now i just miss my iphone terribly..

Anw.. what to do when this happen?
what to do when your iphone got exposed to water, or any other liquid basically?

First, bad news it is.. Liquid damage is not covered by warranty
so to some degree, it doesnt matter if your iphone is still under warranty or not..
bare in mind  said to some degree, you'll know why..

Now, before even thinking about warranty..
what is the first thing to do?
1. do not try to turn on (if the phone is already off after being exposed to the liquid) or turn off (if the phone is still switched on even after the liquid)
2. try to dry the phone using a dry cloth or towel - since this will only dry the outside of the phone, next step is trying to dry the inside of the phone
3. since we cant disassemble an iphone without ruining it or its warranty to say the least (unless youre an expert technician, unlike me - really), we need to find a way of extracting the liquid from the inside of the phone.. to do this, grab a bowl of rice and dig your phone in it.. try to bury your phone inside the rice basically.. The heat causes condensation and the rice will absorbs the water and dries it out..
4. leave it as long as you can since no one can ever know how much water it needs to absorb..
5. hopefully it works after peeps...

Ofc some are lucky enough and some are not..
i was one of those who are not, but it was probly my own fault cause i keep trying to turn it on when i first get it out of the water..
i didnt know these steps earlier but now that i know, i feel like i should share it..
for the sake of iphone knowledge sharing - or simply knowing how bad it can be for some people out there when they got panick and has no clue of what to do..

Anw... what are your options if your iphone decided not to come back to live? sigh..
1. If your iphone is still under warranty - go to Apple store, or any other authorised Apple service dealer..
They should have an option of buying a new phone around $200-$300 depending on which iphone you are using. Trust me this is in my opinion is the safest and smartest option there is.. Plus, you get rid of any scratches you got from your old iphone since you are getting a new one =) This is why i said earlier, warranty does make a difference still eventho we got stupid liquid in our iphone..
Note: If you decided to go authorised service centre instead of Apple store, they might have different charges and i doubt it that it would be less than Apple store.. Also, check with them if they do service for your specific iphone type.. Since am using an iphone5, atm not all authorised dealer can do service for iphone5..
2. If your iphone is no longer under warranty - you can still go to Apple store and check with them if you can opt for that option.. but otherwise.. you have all the options in the world to bring it anywhere else who claim they can fix iphone.. Might be cheaper (i did know some places here at Chinatown claimed they can fix iphone5 for $250-ish), but keep in mind they might not guarantee it will work perfectly..

I am often clumsy, sometimes dumb and that time very unlucky.. but with this post i hope i can feel a little better, and help others possibly...

Beneath Your Beautiful - Labrinth feat. Emeli Sande

My everyday song at work,
repeat repeat repeat

You tell all the boys no
Makes you feel good yeah
I know you're out of my league
But that won't scare me away oh no
You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I'm gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now girl, take it off now girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight

You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don't it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a voice say please don't hurt me
You've carried on so long
You couldn't stop if you tried it
You've built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I'm gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now boy, take it off now boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight
Oh, tonight
See beneath, see beneath,
I... tonight

I'm gonna climb on top your every tower
I'll hold your hand and then we'll jump right out
We'll be falling, falling
But that's okay
Cause I'll be right here
I just wanna love

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful
Would you let me see beneath your perfect
Take it off now girl, take it off now girl
Cause I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight
Tonight, see beneath your beautiful
Oh tonight, we ain't perfect, we ain't perfect no
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight

THERE, you have it..!

Cause its true!
Dont blame me, or anyone else
Cause if you want to stay in my life,
you'll find your way
Maybe you need to think if you truly want to be in my life at all


I needed to be strong (physically) (mentally)

i know i want thisi know i need it
and i know ill love it

i just needed to jump back in
just like the old time

and there will be more
more to it
this time, near future and long one

i know i can do this
i know i want it
i know i need it
and i know ill love it

cause one baby step is a step
and step(s) is all i need

Which step have you reached today?!

Tolerance value

"I believe i have the quality that you are after. It is because I put my heart into everything that i do, i dont do things just cause someone told me to. I do things in context. And if i believe something is not right, i have to ask and justify it, at least for the sake of myself."

That is one of the answer that I'd give to anyone who interview me.
I proud myself for not being a "Yes Sir, Yes Sir" person, and i know no one should.
But trust me, reality is never going to be perfect. And it frustrate me over time.

New job been awesome so far.
Even though i havent found myself as comfortable as how i used to be in my old job, it can only get better from time to time.
My manager and team mate has been quite helpful and friendly to me. They both married, and their main goal in life atm is to get a new house for the family.
The rest of the team are all men, except one lady, that is now on leave for 3 weeks for a wedding.
Practically, am the only girl in the team. Not to mention the only not-married one, and under 25YO one.
Ok, i dont want to complain, but i couldnt help it to always point this out, cause i feel out of the loop when it comes to day to day conversation with any of them

More towards the job itself.
I found myself so far feeling overwhelmed with the fact that everthing is so different here at AGL.
Yes, i know, just like relationship, one should never compare current with old one.
But really? seriously? Who wouldnt?
First, so far i only got one screen, and its 17" squarish one (i just applied for an extra monitor tho).
Second, i need to learn so many small little different things from writing SQL in Oracle to SQL Server now. Which is fine, but sometimes can be annoying.
Third, network is quite slow in the office.
Forth, am still under the shadow sometimes that i feel scared that i cant perform the job well enough

I havent been doing much of data mining in terms of building any models, but i start to get my hand on it looking at previous model just yesterday.
I hope hope hope hope, fingers crossed, everything goes well, and i can fulfill what's expected of me, and beyond.
I hope hope hope hope, no bad things happening to me, like AGL decided to cut back on resources or stuff.
Geez, working in a big company is quite scary, despite the fact that its big ofcourse. And yes, those benefits that i can get haha..

Anw, thanks again Mom and G for being my solid rock through this transition time in my life.

Oh and..
"Cause if i go against my believe, i got nothing left in my life.."
How far would someone goes beyond his tolerance value?

Oh my dear Lord

What sort of sins have we women do?
We just cant get enough of shoes.. and why cant shoes be on sale all the time?
And when it is, why cant it be the mid of the month already? So we can pay for it =(

And like its not enough dilema, i cant decide which one i want..
Black looks classic, and in my defence, i do need a new pair of shoes for new job
Who can say no to black anw?

But red looks even more vintage..
and where else can you get a pair of comfy red shoes in LEATHER?!!
Trust me its not that easy to find a good pair of red shoes in leather these days..
All girls are just dying for those sky scrapper red heels with a shiny finish on it..
making it typical in my eyes.. - I just want to be different =))


This pair is from Nine West

How can someone cheat on others like that?

I recently bought some stuff through ebay.
We met up to finalise the transaction the day after.
He handed me the goods and i transferred him the money.
I talked to G on the way back that this guy, the seller, seems nice and trust worthy..
We even agreed that he looks like an honest and very helpful..

couple days after, we found out that the goods has a lot of faulty in it..
tried to text the guy back, and even called many many many times..
no answer.. no nothing..
number was always busy or simply not picking up..
found out today that he knew about the issue since around 2 weeks ago..

well, the joke is on me now..
so much for being proud of "good at judging people"
i guess you should never ever ever judge the book by its cover...

- take it all out , take it all out -

Safe and Sound - are we?

Safe and Sound - Taylor Swift

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I’ll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, Don’t leave me here alone
But all that’s dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound

Don’t you dare look out your window darling Everything’s on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music’s gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound

Just close your eyes
You’ll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I’ll be safe and sound…

i am so relived that i got this job..
i know ill be sad leaving my current job
leaving the office.. and the people that i love already
but i know i can perform well on this new role..
and this is something that i want to do..
so fingers crossed ill do just fine shifting from old to new job =)

iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4s / iPhone 4

Things has been really good with life lately..
One of them would be getting my new iphone 5 on the day it was released, without having to queu =)
The only thing that can ruin this little happiness was that G decided to get his own iphone 2 weeks after and got a white one instead..
I keep on telling myself that the white one was not that nice since it has the chrome plate at the back of it and black one would look cooler.. truth is.. a girl just need an excuse to stay happy till i got what i want myself..
G promised to swap phone (so that he'll end up with the black one again) after couple of months.. but for now i just have to live with it.. and spying on his white iphone from time to time =))

So.. whats iphone 5 compares to iphone 4s/4?
I'd have to say that if you got an iphone 4s/4 and you updated to iOS 6 already.. then specs between the 3 types wouldnt be so much different.. A lot of people was playing with the new Map apps that allows 3d view on iOS6, some playing with the new Photo stream function to share pictures among friends.. but here i just want to compare physically the difference between the 3 of em..

CELINE bags - Trapeze Luggage Box Doctor Cabas

It was not on top of my priority wish list to buy a new luxurious bag these days..
In fact, it was not on my wish list at all atm to buy anything luxurious for myself anytime soon..
But as always, mom is just being a "MOM"
and September just passed.. and as a results..
i got a CELINE fever now..

I just cant get enough of "CELINE - cyber window shopping", my very own term to describe browsing for hours and hours for particular stuff without the intention of buying.. From the classic BOX bag, or the newest it bag of Celine LUGGAGE Tote, till my one and very own TRAPEZE..
i just love it..

IMO, below is what each CELINE bag type is..
Celine classic Box Bag
is the most classic style from CELINE..
it is simple, clean and sleek.. one of the very few luxurious bag that you can use for an everyday bag..
something to have as an essentials..
handy for travelling as its style can goes with almost anything..

Celine Trapeze Bag
is for those who love simplicity but still needed a sense of confirmation..
the style of a Trapeze, regardless on the colour and material you chose, will give an impression of strength and thats what many girls love.. isnt it?
Celine Luggae Bag
is also known as the "smile bag" and i have to say the most commonly known celine bag atm..
some may call it as the it bag but its not one of my fave line from Celine..

Celine Doctor Bag
is largely known as the "frame bag" and is one of the very few interesting yet classic looking bag of its kind.. i always love this type of bag, even though interesting enough that i have none so far..
its shape has given the impression of being professional but also stylish and not boring at the same time
this would be my second fave after the TRAPEZE

Celine Cabas Bag
is.. i dont know what to say..
a more casual line of Celine bags..?
all i can say its always better to safe up some extra money and buy a Classic Box, Trapeze or Doctor bag of Celine than to waste it on Cabas.. o_O but i wouldnt mind it as a gift to me really.. anyone?
Please note pics are taken from online including Celine official website, and other links retrieved from google search

B-Lite has been uniquely and attractively styled for the sophisticated traveler. Ultimate ease of motion is provided by the spinner multidirectional wheel system and the super lightweight construction." - Bagworld

The BIBLE says NO, but you do it anyway~

This post is not to offen or to cause conflict,
someone just gave me a link and i started reading more and more,
and i think this is interesting..
i just wanted to put it all together in one post,
for something to talk about or discuss - not fight!

here is the original link

Round haircuts.
See you in Hell, Beatles... and/or kids with bowl cuts, surfer cuts or (my favorite) butt cuts. Leviticus 19:27 reads "You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard."

At least, the pure version of football, where you play with a pigskin. The modern synthetic footballs are ugly and slippery anyways. Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads "You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you."
And you're doubly breaking that if you wake up, eat some sausage then go throw around the football. Or go to the county fair and enter a greased pig catching contest.

Fortune telling.
Before you call a 900 number (do people still call 900 numbers, by the way?), read your horoscope or crack open a fortune cookie, realize you're in huge trouble if you do.
Leviticus 19:31 reads "Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God." The penalty for that? Check Leviticus 20:6: "As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people."

Pulling out.
The Bible doesn't get too much into birth control... it's clearly pro-populating but, back when it was written, no one really anticipated the condom or the sponge, so those don't get specific bans.
But... pulling out does. One of the most famous sexual-oriented Bible verses... the one that's used as anti-masturbation rhetoric... is actually anti-pulling out.
It's Genesis 38:9-10: "Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother's wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. But what he did was displeasing in the sight of the Lord; so He took his life also."
Yep -- pull out and get smote. That's harsh.

No tattoos. Leviticus 19:28 reads, "You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord."
Not even a little butterfly on your ankle. Or Thug Life across your abdomen. Or even, fittingly enough, a cross.

Polyester, or any other fabric blends.
The Bible doesn't want you to wear polyester. Not just because it looks cheap. It's sinfully unnatural.
Leviticus 19:19 reads, "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together."
Check the tag on your shirt right now. Didn't realize you were mid-sin at this exact second, did you? (Unless you checked the tag by rolling off your neighbor's wife while you two were having anal sex in the middle of robbing a blind guy. Then your Lycra-spandex blend is really the least of your problems.)

The Bible is very clear on this one: No divorcing. You can't do it. Because when you marry someone, according to Mark 10:8, you "are no longer two, but one flesh." And, Mark 10:9 reads, "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
Mark gets even more hardcore about it a few verses later, in Mark 10:11-12, "And He said to them, 'Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her; and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.'"

Letting people without testicles into church.
Whether you've been castrated or lost one or two balls to cancer isn't important. The Bible doesn't get that specific. It just says you can't pray.
Deuteronomy 23:1 reads (this is the God's Word translation, which spells it out better), "A man whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off may never join the assembly of the Lord."
Oh, and the next verse says that if you're a bastard, the child of a bastard... or even have a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandchild of a bastard, you can't come to church or synagogue either. Deuteronomy 23:2 reads, "No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the Lord; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall enter the assembly of the Lord."

Wearing gold.
1 Timothy 2:9 doesn't like your gold necklace at all. Or your pearl necklace. Or any clothes you're wearing that you didn't get from Forever 21, Old Navy or H&M.
"Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments."

Lobster, shrimp and clam chowder: All banned.
Shellfish. Leviticus 11:10 reads, "But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you." And shellfish is right in that wheelhouse.
Leviticus 11 bans a TON of animals from being eaten (it's THE basis for Kosher law); beyond shellfish and pig, it also says you can't eat camel, rock badger, rabbit, eagle, vulture, buzzard, falcon, raven, crow, ostrich, owl, seagull, hawk, pelican, stork, heron, bat, winged insects that walk on four legs unless they have joints to jump with like grasshoppers (?), bear, mole, mouse, lizard, gecko, crocodile, chameleon and snail.
Sorry if that totally ruins your plans to go to a rock badger eat-off this weekend.

Your wife defending your life in a fight by grabbing your attacker's genitals.
No joke. Deuteronomy actually devotes two verses to this exact scenario: Deuteronomy 25:11-12.
"If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity."
That's impossible to misinterpret. Ladies, if your husband is getting mugged, make sure to kick the mugger in the pills. Do not do the grip and squeeze (no matter what "Miss Congeniality" might advise). Or your hand needs to be cut off.

Girl on Fire - Alicia Keys

She's just a girl, and she's on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway
She's living in a world, and it's on fire
Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away

Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Looks like a girl, but she's a flame
So bright, she can burn your eyes
Better look the other way
You can try but you'll never forget her name
She's on top of the world
Hottest of the hottest girls say

Oh, we got our feet on the ground
And we're burning it down
Oh, got our head in the clouds
And we're not coming down

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Everybody stands, as she goes by
Cause they can see the flame that's in her eyes
Watch her when she's lighting up the night
Nobody knows that she's a lonely girl
And it's a lonely world
But she gon' let it burn, baby, burn, baby

This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She's walking on fire
This girl is on fire

Oh, oh, oh...

She's just a girl, and she's on fire
