Nokia 6021

I have been using my old blue screen Nokia for 3 years. I bought the 6510 in Oct 2002. That phone is a true business phones. It has a lot of capabilities - Folder management, lots of SMS storage, lots of Address Book storage, GPRS, FM Radio, compact size. I never had a reason to change until yesterday.

I bought a Nokia 6021 for rm600. It has all the above plus TRI-BAND, 65k colour, polyphonic and Bluetooth (well.. minus the FM Radio). I need this phone when I go USA in December so I can still keep in touch with Anne. And I hate camera phone. Nokia saved my dilemma by releasing this Nokia 6021. It has all the features of a true business phone, minus the camera and thus, making it affordable. If you wanted a no-frills Nokia, get the 6021. It has a nice solid case with a leathery-no-slip case at the back so this phone feels tough and classy.

Update: Just wanted to say that there is another version called Nokia 6020. It's the same design. The only differences is that 6020 comes with camera and NO Bluetooth. 6021 comes with Bluetooth and NO camera. Nokia is catering to their customers' needs (at last!) .. :D

  3. I don't know. I just think that a phone should just be a phone.. and not a camera. That's what a digital camera is for. And I just don't see a point of paying RM1k+ for a camera-phone.

    This phone is amazing. Very clear polyphonic tones. Very bright screen. Are you looking to upgrade mystic? :D

    Here are some good reviews.

  4. memang dashyat. Today in office, a friend of mine came to my workplace, showed me his new phone. Then read your blog - aiyuh - I saw 2 same models today :P ....is this the phone of the month or what ? BTW, please dun be so bias about camera phone la. True, snap photos use a real camera. But think this way, what is the gadget that one always carry ? cellphone phone la. I carry this baby 24 hrs - so having a camera - may be a security gadget (just minima pixel will do). Example - when someone knock my car ( choy choy choy ) - may be i can quickly snap his car or face ..or when kena attack, hopefully can be smart enough to snap pictures - leave the phone as hints ..hahaha. To me, MMS is cool- when i shopping overseas, i can instantly MMS ask u guys and ask if u want to buy cetain things mah ... Wow Oct 2002 , meaning i hv been using that butterly phone for about 5 years - wow - reading ur blog, i realize I'm too out-dated .. :(

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009.

The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!!

Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours.

Amazon Alexa in Malaysia - does it work well? A review...

Back in July, Amazon Australia had a Prime Day. I joined the trial using my usual Amazon account and ordered an Echo Dot, Echo Plus (the taller one with a built-in hub) and a Kindle Paperwhite, shipping them to a dear friend in Australia.

My friend visited Malaysia and brought the Echos with him two weeks ago. You can imagine my thrill to get my hands on Alexa and start using it... in Malaysia.

As a side story, sometimes, you can't believe how events are aligned properly to prepare my place to be a connected home - I bought a superb new mesh network router, eero (by the way, I'd say it's one of my best electronic purchases after an iPhone! It is that good), which acts as a strong WiFi backbone as it blanket my double storey house with a reliable and fast WiFi. Then, maxis launched Fibernation program which let me to upgrade my internet from 6 Mbps (pathetic) to 100 Mbps with just an additional RM10/month! Now, my super reliable router is connected to fast, fast internet! …

Why did we choose Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah?

Which school did we transfer Jane to, that's probably what is in your mind? The graphics and the title above would have informed you the name of this school. But why this school?

We first heard of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah from a friend. Her 8 and 11 year old daughters are now studying there. Typically, she doesn't really talk much about the school but when probed further, she told us all about the school. There are few things she said which struck me really hard. The first being that the kids and the staff in the school are a happy lot. Yes, even the staff. She said when you go to the school and talked to the teachers, the Headmistress Puan Khoo or even the office staff, you will feel an ambiance of  warmth and politeness from everyone. It's a very pleasant feeling, unlike many schools where the atmosphere is cold. And she also said that the children there, her own two daughters, are always looking forward to school.

The second thing she said which also left an impr…
