::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I-I-I-got a new phone~☆!

Chang-chang-LA~a~! :*:・< ̄∀ ̄>・:*:

This is the phone that I made an advance booking 3 weeks ago. The retailer assured me that I will get it in 1 week but hell no, he told me to wait some more until yesterday — I canceled my order from him and left for another retailer. <`A´>/

Thank goodness, I finally got my hands on the LG KF350! (Laughs) <u_u> ↓

In the past few weeks, I was so anxious and restless. I kept my fingers cross hoping to receive good news from that retailer saying, “Your phone is here!”.

A~ah well, can’t blame me because this phone has a plain yet attractive design. In fact, it looks like a Japanese keitai style. I’m sure many youths (especially girls) will find this phone very catchy to the eyes.↓

(My previous phone: Nokia 7390)

As said, sheep is now very happy and gleeful! <^x^>/

This phone model is called The Ice-cream phone. I have no idea why it’s named after ice-cream. Perhaps it’s because there are 3 dewy creamy colors available; Blue, White and Pink. <.__.>{?]

Well, my color of choice is pink and let’s take a look at actual phone that now belongs to me. (Laughs)

Judging by the appeal itself, it sure gives away the stylish and Japanese feel even though this phone isn’t as long and tall as Japanese made phones.

… But look on the bright side, it’s slim! <^v^>/

Surprisingly, it’s a bit heavier than it looks. Very solid despite that it consist of plastic material.

As for the interior design… ↓

It’s neat and I simply love the simplicity of this phone. The phone is horizontally broader than my Nokia 7390 however, not too obvious and still acceptable.. at least to me. <_  _>lll

↑ The user interface is 240 x 320. At first, I was disappointed with the small screen. There’s ample space to make the screen bigger and longer but as you can see, LG designed an unnecessary border around the screen which makes the screen look even smaller!

* There are only 2 themes: Black and white. (Cries) No variety, huh? <;__;>

If that does not suck enough, the black dot you see on your top right is NOT a camera. (Sorry, cam whores..)

*A~aw~* <;__;>

That is an Auto Luminance Control. Since my knowledge in explaining technical stuffs is rather limited and pathetic, the most I can do to help you understand this function is to extract the information from the LG KF350′s manual book itself:

Auto Luminance Control

“When you set the Auto brightness to On, the brightness of the LCD screen will be automatically set by an ALC (Auto Luminance Control) sensor built into your phone. Auto Luminance Control automatically adjusts screen brightness according to the ambient brightness. KF350′s smart luminance control provides clear screen under bright lights and is gentle on the eyes when dark, all while saving battery power. The function of Auto Brightness is set to ON by default.”

At first, I didn’t know about this function and while I was testing out the phone — The back light kept blinking from bright to dark. Afraid that it was spoiled, I panicked and when through the manual book again to discover that it was a special function.

Seriously, LG should have just build a camera in replace of the ALC because the constant change of light can be very distracting.

Now moving on to the key pad compartment… ↓

It’s very spacious. I’m not used to big key pads and the END CALL (Button that cancels everything as well as turns off the phone) is too close to the number 3 button.

While typing a message to Mira, I kept hitting the END CALL button which resulted my message to be save under Draft. And this jinx happen like — 5 – 8 times in one message? <o_o>

Don’t feel discourage. My fingers are at fault for being spastic, not the phone. <^-^>lll

Baa… Up next… ↓

You can check the time without opening the phone. All you have to do is click the side button (which is the volume button) and the time will re-appear. The time will not be displayed at all times by the way. I think it’s better that way. It will help you reserve battery.

Another great feature about the LED is — You can select an emoticon as your screen saver!

Firstly, click OK → Settings. ↓

Then go to External LED → Wallpaper. ↓

You can choose to display the time only or … ↓

Go for the kawaii emoticons! \<^v^>/ This is how it will turn out. ↓

* Some emoticons are animated! Like the one above!

If you like, you can also customize your own! But you can only store 3 customized emoticons/text. (Cries)

About the MP3 player … ↓

That’s how it will turn out to be. There will be light omitting according to the beat and tempo of the music.

Ok… Enough about how awesome the design and the LED function. Let’s move on to the main question that we all ask before purchasing a phone. And that is — Are the photos taken by LGKF350 sharp and reliable?

Well honestly, I’m quite upset that it ruins up-close shots because it does not have an auto-focus and macro feature. However, I’m quite contented with its quality results.

Below here are some sample photos taken using the LG KF350. ↓

My beloved dog, Auwlithe~♥ ↑ <≥ω≤>/

With these pictures, I let you decide whether the quality is satisfying enough for you.

The camera is equipped with basic functions such as the following:

  • Color effect
  • White Balance
  • Night Mode
  • Timer
  • Tools for editing (Rotate, resize, insert text and element, clipping, image defect [mosaic blur, distort...], special effect [black & white, sepia, color negative, black & white negative, enhance RGB, contrast, sharpen, emboss, sketch..etc])
  • Frame effect
  • Mirror
  • … and more!

The capture speed is fast unlike Nokia 7390 that takes about 3 seconds. Therefore, your photos will be snap in an instant.

Now how about the reliability of LG 350′s video recordings? <.__.>{?]

To clarify the quality, I specially made this short video! ↓

Uh… (Laughs nervously)

Silly video… Well.. This is all I can say about this phone for now. I’m happy with it and still exploring its features. The 1 thing that I’m quite paranoid about this phone is that the latch for the USB/Head phone/charger and Micro SD is loose.. <OAO> ↓

It’s very VERY loose. >_<

I don’t mean that it comes off easily — It’s just that when I lift it up to plug in the USB/Charger, it dangles. <TAT>

So you gotta be careful. Don’t be rough when opening it and plugging it, ok?

Oh! Before I end this. One last tip:

* If you can’t seem to insert the Micro SD card and it keeps ejecting — Remove the back cover, battery and SIM card then insert the Micro SD by the side. That ought to be the trick!

Baa~ Make that as the second last tip because I still have one more. <^-^>lll Please please bear with my long-windedness.

For those who love BLINGING their accessories — LG KF350 is probably a very ideal phone for decorations!

Here’s a web site that sells many lovely and sparkling accessories for phones. Here’s an example of how your phone might turn out to be soon! ↓

Personally, I’ve not bought anything from Strapya-World yet. I’m planning to but haven’t decide what I want. There are too many goodies there! <*^v^>/

With that said, do check this online shop~♥! \<´v`>

To Strapya-world.com!

Hai! \<^ε^>/ This is the end~! Thank you for your patience with sheep~!

I admire your endurance~! (Laughs)

Ms.Aya, taking her leave now~! <∏A∏> (Cries)

[ . . . ]

PS: I can’t say anything regarding the life span of the phone battery because I’ve only used it in 2 days. Perhaps after 5 days or a week later, I’ll make a second report. Hopefully, this phone won’t fail me by then. (Laughs)

P.PS: Oh! Yeah! How can sheep forget?! <^-^>lll When you purchase the LG KF350 — you get a ice-cream phone strap! ↓

Before this, I heard that customers who buys this phone are entitle to Baskin & Robin’s ice-cream voucher. Strange.. I didn’t get it. <.___.>{?] 1GB MicroSD memory card was also not included..

A~ah well.. I was too distracted with the cute and adorable sales attendant. (Laughs) <´•ω•`>lll

With that said — Cheers to ice-cream phone!

READ THE SECOND REPORT ON LG KF350!

Update! The phone hanged! It hanged! SHIT!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Osu~♫!

Ms.Aya here is engross with Dragon Ball~!

I started reading the manga again (starting from book 16 when the battles are more crucial and threatening). So nostalgic~♥! ↓

This whole entry is going to be about Dragon Ball so — I apologize to those who aren’t fond of it and might find this boring. (Cries) <;___;>

Baa.. <.___.>lll Moving on…

I remember I used to read Dragon Ball during my primary school days. And now that I think about it — Dragon Ball is indeed a classic anime/manga that will never die out throughout time.

Dragon Ball has been around since 1984 and until today — it is still the most talk and recognize anime that no one will ever miss out. (you have to be an ignorant loser to dismiss Dragon Ball!)

Even though new anime and manga seems to be beat Dragon Ball in perspective of sound effects and drawings — Somehow, when it comes to story line, I personally feel that Dragon Ball’s plot is more deep and most importantly — Original.

Plus, the characters are great. They show development throughout time. Take the main character Son Goku for an example.

He practically grew up in the series and showed major improvement in his martial arts. Although the whole destroying the solar system may sound ridiculous but face it — The story is great. The characters are cool and the humor tickles the shit out of your bones.

Now when I read Bleach, I’m like — What the fuck is Bankai? (Laughs)

Anyway — Let’s talk about… Who are your favorite characters and which is your favorite saga? <^v^>/

Answer: ______________________________

Baa~ There are so many fantastic and funny characters. But for me — My favorites are:

Cyborg 18 and Cyborg 17 – Because they are the only villains that are not alienated. (Laughs) Also, I find these cold blooded siblings cute when they act together. No.17 is so boyish and he likes cars (I think he’s into guns too) while No.18 is all about clothes and fashion. Seriously, Kuririn is damn lucky to have No.18 as his wife.. Although she orders him around. <^-^>lll Pretty girls are difficult, huh?

* Awesome fanart of No.18

* Awesome fanart of No.18

Then again — Don’t you think No.18 is way too powerful than Kuririn? No wonder he dare not say no to her. (Laughs)

As for No.17, I’m kinda sad that he returned as a bad guy in Dragon Ball GT and that he was destroyed by Goku and No.18. (Cries) Why….. <;__;>

I prefer the normal C17 ↑ than the Super 17. Super 17 looks … scary and freaky.. <=__=>lll

Vegeta - (Laughs) The bad ass in the group. Initially, he appeared as a villain and was a serious threat to the Z group. This son of a B is tough to kill as he keeps getting up after numerous blows by Gohan, Goku, Kuririn, Piccolo and even Yazirobe.

A terrifying character indeed but later, he forcefully team up with Goku and the rest in order to defeat Frieza who was his superior which he hated and wished to rebel against. After defeating Frieza and with no where else to go, he stayed on Earth and lived with Bulma and her family.

Warning: Marry a Saiyan ONLY if you can afford to feed his bottomless stomach!

Warning: Marry a Saiyan ONLY if you can afford to feed his bottomless stomach!

In the manga, there was no emphasis on how Vegeta and Bulma got together in a relationship. However, the development is shown in the anime.

For those who have yet to see how Vegeta gets alone with Bulma, please watch the video below. ↓

At first, I have no blady idea how in tarnation these 2 could end up together but after I discovered this video on Youtube — I’m like Wow~~! I didn’t know Vegeta could be that lenient to Bulma! (Laughs)

They really make a good pairing. <^-^>/

Plus, he makes a good father after all. The video beneath shows a funny moment he had with his daughter, Bra. ↓

Well… I like the fact that Vegeta has this bad ass and violent attitude but somehow he was able to acknowledge his defeat to Goku and in the crucial battle with Majin Buu, he sacrificed himself and later he also contributed to save the world which he once despised.

Another fact about Vegeta that should never be missed out is his intelligence. He came up with brilliant ideas, plans and strategies to help everyone. I wanna praise Vegeta more but I have to move on to my next favorite character… Piccolo! ↓

Piccolo – From a villain to a faithful team mate of the Z fighters. At first his ambition was to kill Goku and then take over the world. This ambition was brought forward to him from the Old King Piccolo. However, the young Piccolo did not inherit too much evil from his father. He started fighting along Goku’s side after he confronted Radietz, Goku’s brother.

Fearing that Radietz was stronger than Goku and himself, he decided that he needs to team up with Goku to eliminate Radietz in order to avoid interference with Piccolo’s ambitions. After winning the battle with Radietz at the cost of Goku’s life, he was informed that 2 more Saiyans who are more powerful than Radietz will be arriving Earth in 1 year’s time, Piccolo decided that he shall train Son Gohan, the first son of Goku for he sees a potential in him.

Son Gohan

Son Gohan

Piccolo them built a father-like relationship with Gohan and became unexpectedly attached to Gohan to the point he stood in the way of Nappa’s fire ball attack in order to save him. In the manga book 18 page 38, he mentioned that Gohan received the same fate as himself, who was forced to survive in the wilderness alone. Gohan on the other hand, regards a very high respect to Piccolo that on some occasions, he wears Piccolo’s uniform.

Piccolo is one of the strongest characters among the Z group and even though later on he was unable to battle the stronger opponents — he is the wisest character.

This could be due to his fusion with Kami-sama, his origin form. Piccolo used to be a very serious and an individual with no sense of humor. (He doesn’t even know what love is all about) But later on, he starts having gag moments even though not at his will.

Especially when he has to deal with Gotenks. (Fusion of Trunks and Son Goten)

Last but not least — ↓

Trunks ~♥ - (Laughs) Guess what — Now only I learned that the name ‘Trunks’ was actually directed to ‘swimming underwear’. All this while I thought it was a tree trunk. (Laughs nervously) The Briefs family — Why didn’t I realize that sooner!? <OAO>

Anyway — Trunks is cool. I like Mirai (Future) Trunks more though. The present Trunks is also cute and his friendship with Goten is really funny.

Mirai Trunks ↑

Mirai Trunks suffered a tragic life which involve all the Z characters death leaving him the only warrior left to fight for man kind against no.17 and no.18. Trunks traveled via time machine built by his mother, Bulma in order to prevent the death of the Z group and to save Goku’s life from heart attack by supplying him a medicine that was made by Bulma. Also, he wishes to meet his father for the first time and save him from death.

However, tragically — he discovered that his presence in the current time will only create a new time line and change the order of happenings. Also, the changes he make in that time will not affect his own time zone. So unable to reverse the damage and destruction caused by No.17 and No.18, he then stayed back to fight against No.17, No.18 and Cell because he does not want the current time zone to suffer the same fate as his.

After witnessing the defeat of No.17, No.18 and Cell, he returns to his time zone and easily kills No.17 and No.18. Apparently, the No.17 and No.18 in his time is more vicious and wicked than the ones in the other time. In fact, No.17 and No.18 is the past were revived and continued living in harmony.

(Pandiculates)

Ok.. These are my most favorite characters. As for sagas, After Piccolo’s saga and onwards are my favorites because the battles become tougher and no longer fighting against earthlings like R&R (Red Ribbon) Yamcha, Jackie Chun (Master Roshi) and Tien Shin Han. (Laughs)

Therefore, what’s your favorite Dragon Ball character and which saga do you like? <^.^>v

As a finale, here are some funny *pictures I found. ↓

* Cosplay pictures… ↓

And here are some *funny fandubs by WeeklyTubeShow.

“Mother fucking seat belt..” (Laughs)

“Green dick is better than blue dick!… Oh shit mother fucker!” (Laughs)

Watch these video only when you’re dead bored and retarded. <´v`>/~!

Alright.. I have to go now.

(Sigh) I want to watch all the Dragon Ball filler that I missed out. I mean — Piccolo driving a car?! <OAO>

How awesome is that!

I also want to watch Dragon Ball GT. (Cries)

<TTATT>

Ok.. I have to go now.. I have a WWE tag to finish!

Therefore, this is Ms.Aya taking her leave for a moment~!

PS: Hell not, I’m not going to watch the English Dragon Ball movie that will be premiering next year. What? I’m allergic to bullshit, you know!

Baa… <u_u>

Blogging right now is Ms.Aya who is wearing a powerless glasses just to have the Megane-kun looks~☆ ↓

Megane-kun no Aya

I just finish publishing a manga tutorial and if strength permits, I want to accomplish my next tutorial by tomorrow. Unless God forbids sheep from spreading its misleading techniques. (Laughs nervously)

Initially, I was drafting an entry about Korean barbecue. But after checking PaperDiaries’s inbox — I received an email that was personally addressed to me. <o_o>

It appears that if I were to spread the word about their search engine, they will donate $20 to WWF on my behalf. <.__.>

“That’s nice. So what is this search engine all about?” I pondered. I was afraid it was some sort of scheme that will lead me to pornographic sites. You know… Those stupid emails with offers. <x_x>

Anyway, I checked the site and came to an agreement that this is a useful site. <^-^>/

It’s called Hotels Combined. This is basically a search engine for hotels.

You can look up for hotels in any country! ↓

Of course for an effective research, you may narrow down your scope to cities/states. ↓

Prior to this, I used to scout for hotels via Internet. In the process, I have vomited many buckets of blood by doing so. Knowing my country, NOTHING is efficient and reliable at all. Especially when it comes to information!

I remember each time I pick up the phone to make some queries, I’ll always end up slamming the phone down and cursing the birth of the stupid receptionist who cultivates no manners and intelligence.

The worst thing is — I didn’t get any definite answers.

Ok.. “What about their web sites? Perhaps I can find some information there!”

To my horror, I get outdated information. I emailed and sent support tickets to their hotel sites and till today, I get no answers. <;__;> (Tears)

(Mira, remember last year when we planned to visit Cameron Highlands? I sent an email and support ticket to a chalet and got no response!)

Also, I tried to search for a hotel in Penang this year and the results were to no avail. The best thing out of this was — I discovered a chalet which I was interested and taking no chances in emails, I called to find out that the chalet is now a private property.

… What the fuck, right?

Their websites are covered with fossilized information.

Imagine if I had made any reservations and 100% trust them to later find out my accomadation did not exist!

And let me tell you, googling in a rich pool of results is not fun. I get lots of weird results that has no relevance and connections to my needs.

Having that said –

Whoever came up with this Hotel search engine is BRILLIANT.

At least whatever we feed the search engine, we get HOTEL results — Not some stupid products or land in some teenager’s ranting blog!

About how reliable the information can be..

Just for the fun of it, I checked out the hotels that are in JB. It appears to be accurate and they have lots of information.

You can even view the map in the satellite and hybrid map view. Plus, you can view some photos and reviews by other people.

To what it seems, this search engine looks new so probably there won’t be many reviews yet.

But no doubt, the information is useful and could be reliable.. <T__T>  At least 10x more reliable than Malaysia’s websites. (Laughs) <^x^>/

Therefore, if you want to look for hotels. Skip Google and visit Hotels Combined immediately. \<^v^>/

Baa~ Ok.. Sheep wants to retire for the night. <u_u>

Everyone.. Oyasumi Nasai~♥!

As expected, glasses does not suit me. (Laughs)

As expected, glasses does not suit me. (Laughs)

PS: What if…

I let them know that Geylang is the best attraction place for prostitution? (Laughs)

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Today I was approached by a member of the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) Malaysia organization, asking if I’d like to contribute and support their funds for Malaysia’s natural environment.

At first I was a little dumbfounded for I had my mind else where and did not give much attention the man who was talking to me. But until he brought up the topic about the Malaysia’s natural resources and habitats, my attention was immediately recaptured.

I have more feelings for animals compared to human beings and if I there’s a donation needed for the animals, I am more than willing to help.

However, it’s a monthly commitment and the payment has to be process via credit card/bank, which is something I’ve never done before.

After reconsidering the whole proposition and details, I decided, “What the heck? Fuck beggars, save the animals and trees! This is a noble deed”. So I gave my particulars and was willing to contribute. Unfortunately, I found out that I’m considered underage to make such a commitment.

Apparently, I have to be 21 years old. (Laughs) So I couldn’t sign up.

WWF Logo

WWF Logo (I found this picture via Google)

Anyway, right now I may not be able to help financially but the least I can do is dedicate an entry for the sake of our natural habitats and animals.

First let me ask you:

Did you know…?

  • In the 1950′s there were about 2990 tigers in our (Malaysia) forest, but today — we have only about 500 left?
  • 4 out of 7 species of marine turtles in the world land and lay their eggs on Malaysian beaches however, only 1 out of 10,000 hatchlings survive long enough to become an adult?
  • WWF Malaysia is a national conservation trust and is a non-profit as well as non-governmental organisation?
