The ONLY Curry Dish In WuZhou

Come, let me bring you to the other corner of WuZhou, that serves THE ONLY curry dish around here. Even though I am sick, but I had been craving for this for quite a while, so, heck cares!

1. Dico's, a fast food chain that is famous in China, that serves the only curry dish around here. This is 魔法咖哩鸡块饭 (Magical Curry Chicken Nugget Set)

After that, I bought a packet of milk and some apples to prepare for me dinner.

2. Milk is VERY EXPENSIVE in China

3. Tada! Oat meals together with apples with milk as dinner. It is really filling and delicious!

Any comments?

Can't Update Your MSN

As you guys know, I still hate Microsoft for their stupidity. Thanks to SFoong for this piece of useful information from Microsoft itself (can't they just make people's life easier?)

Below is part of the email. If you are facing a problem that you can't sign in to MSN and forced to use Meebo or Ebuddy, this is what you should be reading. It works for me now.

Below is a step-by-step solution for your failed-to-update-MSN:

"I reviewed the logs that you attached on your reply and found out that the program is corrupted and you are indeed getting the error code 81000306. The most probable reason why you are still experiencing this issue is that the Windows Live Messenger application that you currently have maybe damaged or corrupted. To be able to fix this issue, what you need to do is to process a clean installation of the Windows Live Messenger program. I will give you the troubleshooting steps that you need to do to be able to process the clean installation. I understand that these steps are a bit lengthy but it is important that you follow them accordingly so we can try to better resolve your concern.

Clean Install is different from manually removing then reinstalling the program. This process has steps that would permanently remove all Windows Live Messenger related files on the system giving you a fresh new slate to work on. For your convenience, I have provided the steps for you to execute this task, please follow the steps carefully.
Note: If you want clean installation instructions with screenshots, visit!8B3F39C76A8B853F!15345.entry

If you are having issues accessing the link, here are the steps:

1. Remove Windows Live Messenger from the computer.

a. Exit Windows Live Messenger.

b. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl and press Enter

c. On the Add or Remove Programs window, click on Windows Live Essentials, and then click Uninstall/Change

d. Select Uninstall, click Continue.

Under Select the programs you want to uninstall, check the checkbox on all programs (Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, Toolbar, Writer), click Continue.

2. Remove the temporary files and folders from the computer.

a. Click Start, click Run, type cleanmgr and then click OK.

b. If you are prompted, click C: in the Select the drive you want to clean up list, and then click OK.


- If you partitioned the hard disk, the CleanMgr utility prompts you to select a drive.
- The Disk Cleanup utility displays how much disk space can be freed.
- This process can take several minutes.

c. On the Disk Cleanup tab, make sure that only the following options are selected:

- Downloaded Program Files

- Temporary Internet Files

- Temporary files

- Temporary Offline Files

- Offline Files

d. Click OK two times.

3. Delete Windows Live Messenger related cache files. Note: You can copy and paste the commands. Include the double-quotes ("). Also, just proceed to the next step if you're unable to find some of the folders.

1. Beside the date and time of your computer, right click the Windows Live Messenger icon, and then click Exit.

2. Click Start, click Run, type
"%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\IdentityCRL" then press ENTER on your keyboard. Delete all files in the folder.

3. Click Start, click Run, type
"%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\IdentityCRL" then delete all files in the folder.

4. Click Start, click Run, type
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\ and then press Enter. Delete the Windows Live Contacts folder.

5. Click Start, click Run, type "%USERPROFILE%\Contacts" then delete all files in the folder.

Note: If you are unable to delete these files due an error message saying that a program is using them even after exiting Messenger, follow these steps to make sure that Messenger has already stopped running:

1. Click Start, click Run, type Taskmgr, and then press ENTER.

2. Click the Processes tab.

3. In the Image Name column, click msnmsgr.exe, and then click End process.

4. Delete the Windows Live Messenger-associated registry keys.

The following steps contain information about deleting the registry. Before you follow these steps, make sure to back it up, and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For information about how to back up, restore, and edit the registry, visit the following Web site:

a. Click Start, click Run, type CMD and then press ENTER to open the command window.

b. Type the commands exactly as they appear below, including the quotation marks. Press ENTER after typing each command to execute the command. Note: You can copy and paste the commands. Include the double-quotes ("). Also, just proceed to the next step if you're unable to find some of the folders.

REG DELETE "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Messenger' /f

REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger /f

REG DELETE "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Communications Clients\Shared" /f

REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Microsoft\IdentityCRL /f

5. Restart the computer.

6. Before we download Windows Live Messenger, let us run Windows Update to make sure that your operating system is up to date. This is will also help make sure that the program will install properly. Go to After the update, please proceed to the next step.

7. Reinstall Windows Live Messenger. Go to to download messenger.

Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you."

Forget about the "sincerely apologize" part. There is a saying, "There might be cure for cancer, but there is no cure for stupidity" and I think this fits Microsoft just nice.

Again, thanks to SFoong for this!


Fucking hate Microsoft for doing these shits! Why the fuck they can't just let people download the software directly for MSN? Why the fuck they can't just let people use the blardy software without update?!!?

Microsoft is seriously being a FUCKING STUPID COMPANY. You disallowed me to go online because I did not install the LATEST VERSION of MSN. Fine.

I go install. In the mid of installing, "You already have the latest version of MSN.", GREAT!

Today, I can no longer go online for real. I uninstalled every single thing, and in the end, when it is at 9x%, it reads "Installation is unsuccessful". I hence trouble shoot, and follow all the instructions and in the end, IT STILL CAN'T FUCKING WORK!

And here's the best part. Guess what, I'm a GENUINE USER FOR MICROSOFT. SCREW YOU MICROSOFT.

Seriously, I am considering MAC now for my next machine. Seriously. FUCK YOU MICROSOFT!

Winter @ China

We, often complaint too much how are things this, how are things that. But we never really realised, how insignificant things to us, could be so interesting, when you are totally in a different shoe.

In this case, I'm from a summer-all-year-long Malaysia, had came to this Mainland of China that have four seasons. From here, I started to realised that, those sunny years that I had been having for the past 23 years, were really meant so much for me now even though, I only need to be here for 2 years.

Frankly speaking, I HATE winter. But autumn is fine for me. Winter is a pain in the ass, in the fingers, in the toes, in the foot, in the balls, in everywhere! I will never live again in a country with four seasons, unless I'm forced to do so or I have got no other choice.

Well, it is not easy for me to upload pictures here so let's waste no time and let me bring you around to "feel" how winter is like.

1. Drinking HOT drinks really kept you warm, only for moments.

2. Socks are really important

3. Oh! Spot the fake Oreo. It's called Oruduo. The biscuit burnt badly and so dried up. Never going to buy this again.

4. Again, socks are really really important!

5. Even your soap will become ice-cube-feel-alike when you take a bath

6. Spent RMB 110 to keep my leng cai face well moistured and smooth

Those pictures were taken quite a few days back. And today, I went out again to do 2 things. One, is to climb the mountain while do some prayers while PHOTOSHOOTING (I had been bad to my wife lately) and then, to eat something...










16. To eat this! McD for the first time in WuZhou!


18. And this one tastes really good. Just that, the portion is a bit small for me who is in the middle of winter.

Sunbathing was never the same here compared to Malaysia. We hate sun in Malaysia but here in China, people love the sun. I love you now too, Sun.

A Note From The Bathroom

Very sorry people for the lack of updates. One of them, thanks to China you-know-what.

Well, I just want to put down a little note here on my little diary that,

"Taking bath here everyday has become a challenge to me. Trying to shower without the heater is really chilling into the bones. But Jun Xue said that, I will get used to this weather soon. And I was counting. There is still about another 4 months more to go before the weather become hot again."

It Is The Wrong Person, At The Wrong Time, At The Wrong Place

"Aaaaaa!! I broke up with my boyfriend! I feel very sad now!", she said.

"It is not easy to gain a relationship. Try and see if you both can solve the problems. If can't, then you had to learn to let go.", I said.

There goes my Monday. Why is she telling me? T____________T

*FYI, she is hinting me that she's commencing her "attack". OMFG, God bless me.*

I don't want a China girlfriend can? No offense, but I just don't want to.
