Even though it came with Freedos, I found that I'm using Vista Ultimate. Power gila! I feel in love with Vista despite its resource -hungry OS. Therefore, I will be getting 2x1GB RAM in the incoming PC Fair. With C2D, it processes faster than my P4 2.6Ghz desktop that left stranded in Petaling Jaya. Sooner or later, this desktop will be back to Penang and will be replace by this powerful laptop of mine. Keke!

Hhmm.. something wrong with my camera or I'm seeing two laptops? :P

In coming weekend, I will be busy like those students rushing to complete their assignments before the due date. Haiz! As you all know this weekend, there will be a "JotaJoti" camp for scouts and guides(included Renjer too). In conjunction with the 100th years anniversary of the Scout Society, there will be estimated 400peoples and counting participating in this memorable camp. And sure got lot of girls attending the camp. I will try to capture as many pictures as possible during the 3days 2nights camp which start on Friday evening till Sunday afternoon.

"Once a scout, forever will be a scout"
