Remember to remember

I’ve always been a backup freak since 1.44mb days. Then upgraded to Zip drives. 100mb! 250mb!Woah!! And more and more and more up till today’s ?!?TB?!?

It’s all about capturing memories. I want to remember, to reminisce. I don’t want to forget. The first webpage I made. The first ppt I’ve done. The many firsts and others I need to capture because I have bad memories.  Sadly, I’ve lost too many of my “firsts” to floppy and zip disks. I never knew how to recover files from those. Boohoo…

Few nights ago, I was trying to retrieve some documents from my HDD and it died on me.  Shizzz!!!! I couldn’t remember if I have a back up copy somewhere. I have just moved them to the HDD a year ago because the older one was failing. Well, I thought I could just try recovering the files like I always do except this time, it didn’t work. Zero files found after 10 attempts. I started to panic, heart raced, temples pressured in.

I calmed myself down and thought “What did I lose??” “Anything important??”

They were mostly old documents, notes and photos. OLD PHOTOS!!! I immediately broke out in cold sweats knowing that I could have lost the photos and videos of my dog. I almost cried. I almost died. I started a frantic search on all my hdds to look for copies. I also started to think about “what if?”  ='(

Extremely fortunate for me, I do have a back up copy of my photos. I couldn’t imagine what would happen to me if I didn’t find them. Why? On that very same day, the vet had told me that my dog’s cancer is spreading and it’s hard to predict how fast they can be spreading and how much time she’s left. Could be years, months or weeks. Maybe even days….. My visual memories are poor, I need those……..

Remember to remember…Shit happens!!
So, whatcha waiting for?? MAKE YOUR BACK-UPS NOW!!!!!

Boxed-up?

Are you limiting yourself or are you limited by the box around you? Take a look that the webpage below to see what’s in that brown cube. It’s a brilliant design for tiny apartments! Perfect for studios.

As in life, how often do you grumble about how little chance you have to progress, to achieve what others have that you don’t? How about taking a step forward and start with what you have? Not many people have the chance or not many people have the resource, confidence and the dare to risk? Millions of factors. But main factor is always the “Man in the Mirror”.

So just how much do you want that change?

If you recognized the characters above…..Congrats! You have used the best chat program ever existed – The Microsoft Comic Chat!!! IMO

What’s that?! Oh c’mon…you can’t be serious…check it out!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Comic_Chat

I absolutely LOVED it because it made chatting so much more fun than plain text lines and it also enabled me to connect to chat rooms in Hong Kong easily! hehehe… I was crazily in love with Hong Kong at the time and just had to practice my Cantonese and communicating with people from Hong Kong, secretly hoping to be one of them, and even be with one of them! Idols, idols. Silly teenage days… Oh how much I miss those days!! *Reminiscing*

Do people still go to chat rooms these days??? I really have no idea anymore because all I do now is talking to myself in my blog and twitter…. =\

Sometimes it’s just..

Because that’s just how I like things to be. I have very random curiousity and  interests, and so much so that I often surprise the many different people who thinks they know me. It’s just like that, isn’t it? The friends you hang out with probably share one or few common interests with you, see one or two sides of you and then they think that’s what you should be. “No way…say what??!”

I believe I started at the age of 5 when I picked up the phone and randomly dialed numbers, asking people if they were staying at the area where I think they were, based on the first few numbers I dialed….and I discovered the secret of area codes! LOL

However, I can also be very stubbornly consistent in some things….. so much so that people actually think I’m boring…hmmm….

Have an open mind.

22nd!? At Desaru!

It’s funny how I’ve finally owned my own domain yet have no idea what to post at all. I seem to be a little fussier about what to post which has totally defied what haphazardly is all about. Pffttt…. So…..

I just turned 22!!! LOL, yeah, that’s what I tell myself, and everyone else. So due to budget and time constraint, we had decided to take a short weekend celebration at the nearest beach resort 2 hours away from home, Desaru!

It’s been 4 years since the last time I was there at Pulai Beach Resort and it has renovated into a real resort! Almost comparable to beach resorts in Bintan. IMPRESSIVE!! I was totally lovin’ it! Try to avoid school holidays if you want a real peaceful relaxing holiday. I did and it was lovely! The local dishes and Japanese Teppan is pretty good (took quite awhile ). And don’t expect much from the breakfast and dinner buffet tho….. Just relax and enjoy it!!!

Espresso

Hapz has officially moved to JaceCafe.com! I’ll be posting as haphazardly as before. So stay bookmarked for new updates very soon.

As my site header and title might have suggested, YES, I LOVE COFFEE!!! Not professionally tho. I don’t really know the different types of beans, how they are brewed etc, but what I do know is how to relax and enjoy my cup of coffee (as long as it doesn’t taste bland or too sweet!).

And of course, my dog, Jackie. She’s been with me for almost 13 years. We have come a long way, a loooongg way, my friend. I’ll probably talk about in one of my future posts.

We’re both living in Singapore, love food like most people do, love going to the beach, café and bars to chillax and many more of other random things. Follow us to find out more about me and Jackie! =)

Haphazardly,
JaceCafe
