Tested with speedtest.net, it's not as fast as some 1mbps streamyx user who got 1.60 mbps (60% extra) but hey, I got 30% extra, pretty good already.
Torrent download speed can reach 140 kbps (not yet test with bleach torrent)
Direct download speed can reach up to 200kbps!
Well these speeds are not as good as in the library (max 1MB/s speed there) but it's almost triple my speed before! Nothing fancy compared to those richbois with 4mbps connection at home, just to show off a bit XD
Erm about the hari raya photos at maba's hse... will process later beh~

I just bought book no.49 of that which is released in Malaysia not long ago... Sadly and in my greatest sorrow, the author of Crayon Shin-chan, was found dead after hiking in a mountain in Japan. The cause of his dead is currently believed to be falling off a cliff in the mountain.
Details: (adapted from here)
The popular Japanese manga artist of “Crayon Shin-chan,” Yoshito Usui, was found dead in the mountains of Gunma prefecture after apparently falling to his death off a cliff. Usui had reportedly gone missing on the 11th of the month after telling his family he was going for a day-hike in the mountains.
The body of 51 year old Yoshito Usui was discovered by a hiker yesterday, September 19th (JST), at the bottom of one of the steep cliffs of Mt. Arafune, about 90 miles northwest of Tokyo. The incident appears to have happened on the north face of the mountain just off a popular hiking trail on a part of the cliff that is about about 100 meters (330 feet) tall . Mt. Arafune is famous locally for its colored cliffs which run between 200 to 300 meters tall (about 650 to 1,000 feet) in some areas, and is considered to be one of the top 200 mountains in Japan. While there are no guard rails along the cliff edges, accidents on the mountain are reportedly rare.
Rescue workers yesterday were unable to retrieve the body, which was already believed to be lifeless. Today, September 20th, around 17 police officials hiked up to the body’s location and had it airlifted out by helicopter in the late afternoon. Although descriptions of the body’s clothing matched Usui’s, identification was not officially determined until late this evening after matching dental records. A broken digital camera and a beige bag were also found in the same vicinity.
Usui, who enjoyed hiking, left his home early in the morning of the 11th after telling his family that he was going to Mt.Arafune and would be back by the evening. However, when he didn’t return home or answer his cell phone on the 12th, his wife went to the police. A faint signal from the phone was located in the Mt. Arafune area on the 13th, but could not be pinpointed. The signal disappeared on the 15th according to reports.
The cause of the incident is still being investigated, but his family did not believe Usui to be suicidal.

May Yoshito-sensei rest in peace, your great creation had brought and will continue to bring countless joy and laughters to me, everyone and the upcoming generationS.
Your fan Zell.

I was being pretty busy over my
And please don't think I'm freed from those evil assignments and tests, I have technical drawing (autoCAD) test on the Monday right after this 1-week-long Hari Raya Aidilfitri holidays and I have Algebra test on Friday on the same week. Guess what, I've totally ruined my TITAS test due to the change in test paper =.= I would be considered lucky if I get 25/40 >.<
For instance I've completed watching BLEACH until episode 237 which was just released 2 days ago... And watched Bleach movie: The DiamondDust Rebellion XD
Actually I planned to give Eden senpai a visit today, with Jason, but unfortunately due to that embarrassing traffic jam caused by hari raya we've postponed it... But on Sunday we're going to visit Maba's house for Hari Raya open house! Yeah~ Such a long time since the last time I've meet him, should be 3 months already ya?
Frankly I wasn't home for 3 weeks and instead I stayed in my hostel for that period. Cuz the 1st weekend I had assignments to follow up and the 2nd weekend I had to attend UKM's pesta tanglung~ Photos will be posted real soon, maybe in another day or two.
Here's one Yashica Electro 35 found in the pesta, I greatly hoped to have smuggled it home despite the dust but of course I wasn't allowed...
It's such a waste to leave that there "for pameran"... It would be one of my proud collection T_T
I should continue another day, be sure to check back for updates and I promise I will update my blog every weekends perhaps, since I barely can connect to the internet during weekdays (I'm lazy to blog while downloading in PSZ, cuz I will be in a rush).
