Comic Strip

Before you continue to read this post, do a reflection first. Ask yourself a very important question:
Are you a geek or a nerd?
If yes, I suggest you to leave now. It will be a very addictive thing. Like very very addictive. Still want to continue? Don't say I didn't warn you.
If no, I also suggest you to leave now. It's so random and geeky. Sometimes I don't get it at all.

OK, welcome to the one way road. I know there is no going back for me. I hope you have as much fun as I had too! The thing I want to introduce is Comic Strip. Well, it's basically like short comic. And the best thing is it's just so~ random. Sometimes it's funny just because it's random.

There are three that basically got a place in my heart as favourite.
1. Popsicle  
This comic strip earn place as my favourite by his great post  I think I smell the facts of life.

I don't give much explanation, eh? Check it yourself. It's really really nice.

Google Chrome Beta

Got time to check this (not quite) new browser. Yeah, it's Chrome (read the title of the post, genius!). I've heard of it for a long time and give it a short play already but I'm not really interested at that time. Let me explain, Mozilla Firefox best feature is it's enormous number of extensions (or add-on) that gives the users power to set it according to their need.

When I first heard Chrome can also be installed with extensions, I'm not really interested. I thought it's just a small number of extension. Another problem is I'm really lazy to move all of my bookmarks from Mozilla.

So, today when I'm just browsing about nothing in particular, I found out that there is add-on that can be used for synchronizing bookmarks. One problem solved, so I thought of giving Chrome a chance (even without extensions).

And it's a pleasant surprise to find out that most (if not all) of my favorite add-on can be installed in Chrome. Basically, two that I can't live without is FastestFox and StumbleUpon. FastestFox because it can load next page without the need of click (yeah, just laziness) and StumbleUpon because it's a great tool to browse and find new interesting website. One of great and complete site to find about Chrome extensions is Google Chrome Extensions.

So, I officially decided to make Chrome my default browser. Now the problem is solved, let's talk about the advantage of Chrome compared to Firefox. First, it's prettier. Yeah, prettier. It may not exactly a deal breaker or something really important but it's undeniable Google's good software comes with great interface. Just look at Chrome and Picasa and you'll see what I mean. Another advantage that is quite important is I found that Chrome is slightly faster than Firefox.

That's it. The only extension that I can't find is only Colorful Tabs. What a pity. It's a simple extension but very useful when you like to open so many tabs like me. But anyway, that didn't stop Chrome to be better browser than Firefox or at least in my opinion.

So, what do you think? I really recommended Chrome as browser (especially if you still use Internet Explorer).

Name Meaning

It's a time for some more useful website. I found these websites when I'm browsing. Just like usual.

Anyway, I just typed 'name meaning' in Google and clicked the first website that appeared and it's It's quite complete (because I found my name there ;P) and I found Rudy comes from Rudolph which means 'Famous Wolf'.

But name-meanings does not really accurate (or so I believe) when it comes to Biblical names. So, I typed another keyword, 'Biblical name meaning' and found It's complete with it's Hebrew writing (which i can't read at all) and where it's comes from.

I've learned some Hebrew names meaning by reading the website.  Names which started in 'Abi' means 'my father' and names ends with '-el' usually means God.

Both of the websites have some more features but I won't explain it here. If you want, go yourself to have a look! It will be an educative and useful way to kill time.

Now, you know what your name meaning and Biblical name meaning, right?

Catch Up Post

Happy belated Christmas and New Year.I guess I owe this blog an update,eh?

My holiday at hometown has ended :(. It's been fun and memorable.It's refreshing to see old, familiar faces. Although it feels strange and different at first when I arrive, it is so easy to fit back to the old routine. I was gone for months but I have lived here for years after all.

Even I went back just for 2 weeks, I still go to mission trip to Tanjung Batu for 3 days and I don't regret it. No, seriously, it's going to be a really memorable time and one source of strength for me to keep going in Lord. And the rest of my holiday is spent to tend the shop because my father had a motorcycle accident :(. But I kind of glad, though. I mean at least I was there when he had the accident and I can help when my parents needs me.

And then BAM! 2 weeks is gone (there is no such sound, I use it just for the sake of hyperbole, ok?) I try to cherish it as long as I could, but 2 weeks is a really short time. I guess time is up and all I can do is try to cherish it every opportunity I have. Human never cherish what they got right now, such a strange creature.

And you know what I did in my last day of holiday which is also the New Year celebration of 2010? Sleep after I had lunch and wake up to eat dinner. I think it's a nice long 5 hours nap. I regret it a little bit, but yeah, I guess I need that kind of rest too. No use regretting what had happened ;D

Moving on, when I arrive in Malaysia, it's been nice. I don't feel any unfamiliarity with my housemate, at least not yet. The first service in the 2010 is also really nice. Wish I can stay in God's presence like that forever. And wasted my 3 hours to go back home. Hey, it's my first time taking KTM and MetroBus alone. And God answer my prayer all the way (thank You, Lord, You are the best!).

So yeah, although I almost giving up celebrating New Year, what my pastor said has reminded me to cherish what we got. Although it is very tempting to wallow myself in self-pity because nothing special happened at New Year, but at least we can try to make this year is a worthwhile and important year for our journey in God's way. So, I guess that will be my New Year resolution (it's kinda late, but late is better than not doing at all) which is to know God more, to make Holy Spirit my Guide in every step and decision I make! Hope you also have a worthwhile New Year resolution, too!
