From one of the smoke captured.

Amaron Green 55B24L,AMSOIL 5W30, Denso IK16...

For the record, change my car battery on 5th Oct 2009 to Amaron for $90, the cheapest in town. Amaron always knows as one of the best battery available at the reasonable price for super long life...this battery is from India.
The last Amaron in my car was running for 3 years without fail, impressive enough in the eye of they suggest me don't wait till it die as it won't give you any sign or symptom before it die...
Engine Oil also change to a better brand from USA, AMSOIL rather than the original Toyota 5W40 which start to feel pedal heavy after running for 5000km.
Besides spark plug 'upgraded' to Iridium power from the normal copper tip.

After the change, the engine felt much-much-much more responsive and smooth...but this is expected after oil change...let's see how the smoothness changes over time...

Mileage: 74500KM
Next Service: 84500KM
Lee Hup Batteries at Sin Ming Autocare
Model : 55B24L
Series: HI-LIFE
Application :STARTING

Engine Oil: AMSOIL 5w30 100% synthetic
and the impressive comparison testing result.

Spark Plug: Denso Iridium IK16
and some facts about Iridium...and its not from this planet @_@!!!
Where does Iridium come from?
A. Fifty million years ago, an asteroid composed almost entirely of the precious metal Iridium (Ir-77) struck the earth, creating the Gulf of Mexico. The resulting dust cloud destroyed most living things and ended the dinosaurs reign on earth.
Q. What makes Iridium better?
A. Until recently, platinum was considered the best material to use on the top of an electrode because of its durability. However, Iridium is 6 times harder, 8 times stronger, and has a melting point 1200 degrees higher than platinum. Put that into a harsh environment such as an engine piston chamber, and you have a spark plug that can resist wear much better than platinum. Additionally, the DENSO Iridium Power alloy is so durable; it allowed our engineers to produce the world’s smallest center electrode (.4mm) which reduces the voltage requirements, concentrating its sparking power. Also, its smaller size, combined with the tapered U-Groove ground electrode, allows more room for the flame kernel to develop and produce a more efficient combustion.

More symmetrical smoke arts.

The symmetrical of the smoke photography with a little bit of photo editing,
they are abstract and you can freely imagine whatever you want them to be.

F200EXR sample pictures

Has not been here for quite sometimes, been busy with life and works and family and all sort of other things except this blog...felt sorry too my OrdinaryManBlog.

Here are some of the pictures taken with my 33yo birthday gift from my wife.
They are with lightly "photoscaped" which I intended to learn. So here they are...the pictures taken with F200EXR plus edited by Photoscape.

corporate cannibal

Pleased to meet you, pleased to have you on my plate
your meat is sweet to me
your destiny
your fate

you’re my life support, your life is my sport
I’m a man-eating machine X2

you won’t hear me laughing, as i terminate your day
you can’t trace my footsteps, as i walk the other way
i can’t get enough prey, pray for me X2
(i’m a man-eating machine)
corporate cannibal,
digital criminal

corporate cannibal, eat you like an animal

employer of the year, grandmaster of fear
my blood flows satanical, mechanical, masonical and chemical
habitual ritual

i’m a man-eating machine.. X2
i deal in the market, every man, woman and child is a target
a closet full of faceless nameless
pay more for less empitness

i’ll make you scrounge, in my executive lounge
you pay less tax, but i’ll gain more back
my rules, you fools

we can play the money game
greedgame, power game, stay insane
lost in the cell, in this hell
slave to the rhythm of the corporate prison

i’m a man-eating machine…i can’t get enough prey
pray for me
corporate cannibal…digital criminal…

i’ll consume my consumers, with no sense of humour
i’ll give you a uniform, chloroform

sanatize, homogenize, vaporize… you

i’m the spark, make the world explode
i’m a man-eating machine, i’ll make the world explode
corporate cannibal…

Phone drop in water, what to do?

1. Remove the Battery. This is one of the most important steps. Don't take time to think about it, electricity and water do not mix. Cutting power to your phone is a crucial first step in saving it.

2. Dry your Phone. Obviously you need to remove as much of the water as soon as you can to prevent it from getting into the phone. Use a towel or a paper towel to remove as much of the water as possible.

3. Soak in Alcohol. Alcohol is hygroscopic (attracts water), it will dissolve all the water in the phone, which will then pour out of the phone with the alcohol. Any remaining alcohol will evaporate. Alcohol will not harm your phone but may mess up glue (from stickers and the like). Use 95% alcohol, not the regular 70% rubbing type. Do it outside!. If you use alcohol, do not follow the rest of the advice here, instead leave your phone outside for a day or two to dry.

4. Allow the phone to dry. Since you do not want to ruin your phone or lose all the numbers in your phone book, you need to allow the phone to dry. Don't try putting the battery back on to see if it works as this would risk damaging the phone with a short circuit. Leaving your phone in a bowl of dry rice will help to expedite moisture evaporation.

5. Heat your Phone. Apply enough heat to your phone to cause the water to evaporate without waterlogging your digital screen. One of the best things you can do to save a cell phone is to set it on the back of your computer monitor or TV screen over the heat vents. This is usually the perfect amount of heat to fix your phone. The convection action of the heat vents will help carry away the moisture in your phone. Leave the phone on the heat for at least 2-3 days. Another option is to leave it overnight in the oven on warm (make sure to take off the battery first).

6. Test your Phone. After you have waited 3 days, make sure everything is clean and dry looking and re-attach the battery to the phone and see if it works. If your phone does not work repeat step 4. If it still won't work, try taking your cell phone to an authorized dealer. Sometimes they can fix it.

Tips :
* Don't put the battery on for at least 3 days or longer if your digital screen is foggy.
* Place a piece of satin finish scotch tape over your water damage sticker before you drop your cell phone in the water to prevent the water damage sticker from voiding your warranty. This sticker can usually be found under your battery. It's a small round white sticker, possibly with dots on it. If this sticker gets wet it changes color and your phone is marked for water damage.
* Remove the tape if you ever have to return your phone for repairs or warranty. (See the note in the 'Warnings' section about doing this!)
* The best way to dry out your phone is to place it in front of an air conditioner or air conditioning vent. Cold air won't damage your phone (hot air can warp or in extreme cases even melt plastic), and air from an air conditioner is dry, and so will evaporate water faster than you might think (which is why a car air conditioner will de-mist the windshield so effectively, even if the engine hasn't warmed up yet). Warm air from a reverse-cycle air conditioner works even better, of course. If you dry your phone in this way overnight it should be fine by the morning.
* Use a hairdryer set on warm; it won't melt your head so your phone should be safe.
* Use a food dehydrator.* Use the oven on the warm setting (make sure to take out the battery)Warnings :* Don't heat the battery or it could leak acid. If you use an oven or hairdryer, make sure to remove the battery first.
* If you use alcohol make sure to do so outside, and do not apply heat in any form, not even the gentle heat of a monitor. Do not hook up the bettery till the alcohol smell dissipates.
* Do not apply heat to your phone other than mentioned above. You don't want to melt or burn your phone.
* Warranty fraud is naughty! If you dropped your phone in the can with your other 'droppings'--are you really going to send it in for a warranty tech to have to open? Yuck!
* FYI, Most modern phones have more than one liquid damage indicator on them, only one visible to you (and sales/technician agents), and chances are, if the sticker under the battery is triggered (or would be, with the scotch tape trick), then the odds are that the internal stickers you can't access are tripped as well. This will still result in you paying a voided-warranty fee in the long run, and it may be best to just learn from your mistake (and not make it more financially severe!).
* Even if all these steps are followed, minerals dissolved in the water can precipitate on solder and component pins, causing corrosion or shorting. Components pins are packed so closely together in a modern cell phone that even a small encrustation can create a short, rendering the phone inoperable.

Montague Paratrooper

This bike can go fast but its quit heavy especially during up hill,
Even though it is a foldie, but the body is rigid to ride, the saddle is soft only at the first moment but not so friendly to buttock after long ride.

Uniquely beautiful side view...

How its looks compare to others bike...

Unique structure of paratrooper...
