Selling some books [ad=review]

Too many good books to be kept and so little space that I have. I have listed few books at Amazon and wishing that these books will benefit others since I have limited space in my bedroom. Search for it at These are the books that I have listed:

Other women: Sounds like Sri Diah’s novel, but happens in UK. It’s true, sometimes you fell out of wedlock and sanity because of external temptation. A good book for women. I like the front cover catchy yet cynical phrase; friendship can be a treacherous game.

Life Swap: I noticed this book’s ad while I was in the tube. Londoner always have book or paper with them whenever they are in the tube. Sadly, Malaysians don’t have both while riding LRT. Enough about the culture, this book is quite interesting as it’s about 2 women who think “grass is always greener on the other side”. They swap their life, families, job, lifestyle, etc. This books doesn’t frustrate me. I like the ending although it’s stereotype happy ending, but the definition of happiness is different from the early chapters of the book. Worth reading.

Scissor Sisters: I had a good bargain when I bought this book. It’s still new. Very fresh. Suitable for those who love Scissor Sisters band and want to know who they are. Americans who came to UK and make big time in foreign country. Their music is accepted worldwide, and they are the best pop band currently. However, this is not an official autobiography by the members. It is written by Alex Hannaford with wide background reading from various media.

Rescuing Rose: Sometimes ‘Agony Aunts’ have their own problem themselves. Men in her life says that Rose (main character in this novel) wants to be an agony aunt just because to satisfy her imperfect background history since many Agony Aunts (or Uncles) come from a tattered childhood. She was divorced, she just bought a new house, her fiscal is unstable and her column is being ‘hijacked’ by her editor.

Well folks, my price is the lowest and I hope it will soon be bought. Good news, I make them available for international shipping except for Rescuing Rose. However, if you want to buy it, I can change it’s delivery destination. My seller id in Amazon is as same as my YM id. Have fun with reading.


Bila kesibukan menjengah hidup

Next week I’m going to be totally busy. Perhaps Wednesday is the only day that I don’t have class. I’m going to Woodfield Primary School in Whitleigh. The route is quite unfriendly. About half hour by bus, and after that I need to walk about 560 metres, uphill *sigh* This holy month of Ramadhan, where the cold weather bites, and the whole day school session, I bet it’ll make me exhausted. I hope the kids will not be as energetic as the Key Stage 1 kids (I hope).

Tomorrow I’m going to the school with Hanis. I hope my bad expectation will be gone. Listen ti Hanis’ story, it sounds cool. Well, hope is a thing with feather (read and understand Emily Dickinson’s poem).

Due to change

Season changes
Human grows
So this blog too.
Tell me sincerely, which one do you prefer?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
a) previous design–the tropical flowers, should be lively all season!

b) this winter design–in order to suits the cold season.

Do we need to change when we were asked to?

Since I was little, I was playing with DOS’ game like snakes, Mario Brothers and Prince of Persia (pixeled version). That time, me and my brothers had smudge dad’s keyboard badly. It had our fingerprints and bits of biscuits and tons of dust. I found that DOS is user-friendly and I easily learned LOTUS (DOS’ version of Microsoft Excel) when I was in primary school.

Then there comes the culprit which makes Mr Bill Gates becomes the richest man on earth. Windows has reached every PC in this world and it’s a phenomenon. After his genius invention accepted on worldwide scale, he breeds more Windows OS which are: Windows 95, followed by Windows 98, Windows ME and then latest, Windows XP. However, because Windows OS is totally conquering every unit globally, then along came MAC OS, and Linux (specially dedicated to penguin enthusiast). People have realised that Windows is not ‘that’ good actually.

Windows Vista demo goes awry

Because of wanting to compete MAC with the brilliant graphic, Microsoft is producing a new baby namely Windows Vista. It’s birth announcement have been delayed to next year as some have tested it’s virginity and many made comments about and still have weaknesses thus its’ birth announcement have been delayed. I found many flaws of Windows (at this time being) and have some feeling of changing it to Linux (well, somebody plays a great role in influencing me either). Morevover, Linux is world-wide You can read the comparison in details, here. Plus, in terms of security, Az told me that there’s a hacker hacked Windows Vista in 20 minutes only. I guess I will gain my consumer right soon (but I still wish for dual-booting, but I guess myPC will be slower or worse, crash~).

So people, if you want to change to Vista just because of its appearance, you’re burning your own ass actually. There are several tips given by PC advisor (get the october’s issue!):

  1. If you want the wallpaper, head to and you do the choosing
  2. For the mouse pointer, visit this link > However, the effect won’t be as impressive as the real Vista (don’t tell me i ddin’t warn you!). unzip the aero (an acronym for Authentic, Energetic, Reflective, and Open) cursors folders to your desktop, right click then install.
  3. Control Panel>Appearence and Themes>choose the mouse pointers option to the left of the main pane. Click on the pointers and you’ll see the AERO cursors (alphablended) listed in the scheme drop-down. Scroll down the items in the Customize list for preview of the symbols that will appear, depending on the tasks.
  4. Vista includes a range if applets that sit on your desktop and serve up the information that’s most useful to you. Known as gadgets, they’re similar to the widgets Yahoo offers for XP users and those Apple’s OS X Tiger includes. Head to and download the installation tool for XP.
  5. By default, widgets supposedly stored in My Documents. Yahoo displays popular widgets and directs your icon to the system tray–where you can manage your onscreen applets. Press F8 to greys out open windows for an unobstructed of view of your widgets.
  6. Another tool that’ll add some eyeshadow and blusher to your new Windows XP makeover~or Windows Vista lookalike makeup~ is by downloading desktop sidebar. You can get it from What’s good about it? Desktop sidebar ease your daily chores for displaying weather forecast, info on your PC perfomance, news headlines, yada yada.

So, more to look at: this site provides Vista themes. Basically, to install it is the usual way to install theme.

So, what do you think of Vista’s screenshot? Merely a makeover in order to beat MAC’s 3D look?

So I’m not totally against Microsoft, but I think they have been on top to long and there are OSs which perform better than Windows, so give it a try.
