Farewell Without Farewell

Salam semua!

I've been extremely busy lately both at home and office. Several attempts to post some updates but all ended up in draft. Sorry for the absence!  

Might need a little extra time to post up a few updates both on career and wedding. But doesn't seem to have the time. Biane!

So, I took this given time to say sorry and I'll be back once things run smooth. And I leave you with a Korean song taken from the drama, My Lovely Sam Soon which I watched last week. Enjoy!

Ji Sun - Farewell Without Farewell

I can still smile brightly because I haven’t forgotten
The glorious days we had together
I’ve already erased the painful tears
My dying past

Dear, my beautiful love, please hold my hand
Come back to me, like a lovely song

I wash the dusty mirror with the moonlight
My face has aged with time
Now the early morning light shines on me

Dear, my beautiful love, please hold my hand
Come back to me, like a lovely song

My love is still in the same place
In a farewell without farewell
The day you come back
I’ll have the world

Dear, my beautiful love, please hold my hand
Come back to me, like a lovely song
I’ll smile

Inventing My Own iPad Application for Maxis

Salam!

I guess most Nuffnangers & Churpers read about this contest by Maxis. So, I guess I'm going to try my luck and join this contest.





Maxis contest participant badge


Now, I'm not an iPhone user and let alone using iPad. So, I'm not so familiar with iPad Apps. So, I googled and learn about the existing Apps. And they are very interesting. Seriously. 

I love scrapbooks. If any of you watch New In Town starring Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. you guys would remember those folks in that little town love to make scrapbooks. I love those scrapbooks! I used to go to art stores in One Utama which they sell scrapbook thingies and even the starter kits. And yes they are costly. Darn.

So I make digital scrapbooks which is quite unconventional but yet still can help to satisfy my need for scrapbooks. Usually I use online digital scrapbook, Scrapblog or digital scrapbook software, Serif Digital Scrapbook Artist which I can get free download. So, it's cheaper and I can have them printed out.

So, this gave me an idea to create an app for iPad. An app for scrapbookers  junkies on the go. An app so scrapbookers can start doing their scrapbooks while waiting for the bus or train or in flight or wherever, whenever.

Presenting..... iScrapbook!

iScrapbook

Now. I took most of the layout & presentation from digital scrapbook software that I used. But the idea is to have an app for scrapbookers on the go. Which means, you can create your scrapbook anytime, anywhere. And lucky enough that we have WiFi modem provided by Maxis, you can easily download photos, embellishments, updates plus upload your finished scrapbooks anytime. Kudos Maxis for the iPad Plans!!


Maxis iPad Plan

Ok. Let's talk about this iScrapbook App. iScrapbook will be similar to most digital scrapbook software in store but thanks to the touchscreen technology that made iPad different and "personal", iScrapbook will have slight differences from any other digital scrapbook software.

I will explain this with some images to make you understand iScrapbook better.

Once you pick the app, you will go to the screen in Exhibit A where you pick on whether to start a new, open existing files or back to the main menu. I will explain in the context of starting a new project.


Exhibit A

Once you pick NEW, you will come to the menu on what kind of project you want to create. See Exhibit B.


Exhibit B

Now, we pick on SCRAPBOOK. Then the next display will be the platform where you start your scrapbook. See Exhibit C.


Exhibit C

From Exhibit C, we can see the sub menu on the left. It indicates on what you want to put in your scrapbook. You can grab photos from the files in your iPad or download them from your facebook/Photobucket/flickr/etc accounts online. Don't forget the WiFi modems by Maxis ok! Not limited to photos only, embellishments, backgrounds and videos can be downloaded from the world wide web too. So easy!

I'll show an example of using embellishments for your scrapbook. Once you pick the EMBELLISHMENT menu, thumbnails of embellishment types will be displayed. See Exhibit D.


Exhibit D

Here comes the magic of touchscreen. All you need to do in picking the embellishment is to slide your finger across the screen. No more mouse and the clicking sound! See Exhibit E.


Exhibit E

Now that you picked a type, the next display will be a variety of embellishments from the type you picked earlier. i.e Floral. See Exhibit F.


Exhibit F

Now, choose an embellishment and you will go back to the design platform. See Exhibit G.


Exhibit G


Now that you have your embellishment, you might want to resize it. The normal software requires you to resize with your mouse, but with iPad you just need your fingers to do the work. You can adjust the size with your bare hand. Literally. See Exhibit H.


Exhibit H

And now comes to the fun part. When you use digital scrapbook software, you get to turn and rotate embellishments in 360 degrees. And yes, those are in 2D version. Now that every movie is in 3D, I think this should be applicable in iScrapbook too. I saw in an existing iPad apps, The Elements where you can rotate the elements 360 degrees in 3D! This is fun!!! See Exhibit I, J and K.


Exhibit I

Exhibit J

Exhibit K


See what I mean? Now, here comes the personal part. Using a digital brush in Paint is not my expertise. I can only draw boxes and circles in digital form. But with this touchscreen technology, everyone have the opportunity to draw and brush like professional animators and painters in Disney/Pixar studio! See Exhibit L.


Exhibit L

And now, instead of using the existing Font for TEXTS menu, you can write with your own handwriting! No need to send your handwriting to be converted into fonts anymore because you can write directly on iPad. And oh yes, digital scrapbooks can be personal again. Not just "digital" and robot-like. Want proof? See Exhibit M.


Exhibit M

Now, the finished product can be sent to printers. As usual. I have some of my digital scrapbooks printed out. You can view it here, theskrapbook.blogspot.com.

For those who are interested about Maxis iPad plans, you can get more info at this link: http://www.maxis.com.my/personal/broadband/ipad_postpaid.asp

And me, I really do hope someone can invent iScrapbook for us. Oh yes, I did make a video on iScrapbook. (So that it seemed like a real iPad App. Teehee..) Enjoy!

And yes, most of the templates and layouts are taken from Scrapblog & Serif Digital Scrapbook Artist. And I did all the images from Exhibit A - M using Scrapblog. Seriously. I hope whoever that will take my idea to build iScrapbook to create a better layout and templates. And don't forget to mention my name! :p



Finger crossed,

Sugarland - Stuck Like Glue

Mmmm better...mmm better...
Absolutely no one that knows me better
No one that can make me feel sooo goooood
How did we stay so long together?
When everybody, everybody said we never would
And just when I, I start to think they're right
That love has died...

[Chorus]
There you go making my heart beat again,
Heart beat again,
Heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it and do it one time?
There you go pulling me right back in,
Right back in,
Right back in
And I know-oo I'm never letting this go-ooo

I'm stuck on you
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby we're stuck like glue
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby we're stuck like glue

Some days I don't feel like trying
Some days you know I wanna just give up
When it doesn't matter who's right, fight about it all night
Had enough
You give me that look
"I'm sorry baby let's make up"
You do that thing that makes me laugh
And just like that...

[Chorus]
There you go making my heart beat again,
Heart beat again,
Heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it and do it one time
There you go pulling me right back in,
Right back in,
Right back in
And I know-oo I'm never letting this go-ooo

I'm stuck on you
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby we're stuck like glue
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby were stuck like glue


Whutooo Whutoo

You almost stay out, too stuck together from the ATL
Whutooo Whutoo

Feeling kinda sick?
Just a spoon full of sugar make it better real quick

I say
Whutooo Whutoo
Whatcha gonna do with that?
Whutooo Whutoo
Come on over here with that
Sugar sticky sweet stuff
Come on give me that stuff
Everybody wants some
Melodies that get stuck

Up in your head
Whutooo whutooo

Up in your head
Whutooo whutooo

Up in your head
Whutooo whutooo

Up in your head
Whutooo whutooo
Whuthoo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me together, say, it's all I wanna do
I said

[Chorus]
There you go making my heart beat again,
Heart beat again,
Heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it and do it one time
There you go pulling me right back in,
Right back in,
Right back in
And I know-oo I'm never letting this go-ooo

There you go making my heart beat again,
Heart beat again,
Heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it and do it one time
There you go pulling me right back in,
Right back in,
Right back in
And I know-oo I'm never letting this go-ooo
I'm stuck on you

Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby we're stuck like glue
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby were stuck like glue
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby we're stuck like glue


Love the lyrics, funny video LOL!


With Love,

Community Service: Derma Kilat Untuk Mangsa Kebakaran

Salam semua,

Pagi tadi cek email dapat email dari kawan aku berbunyi begini:


Salam Untuk Semua,
 
Pada 3 Januari 2011, satu kemalangan telah menimpa keluarga adik Suhaida. Rumah beliau telah hangus dijilat api sehingga menyebabkan mereka 6 sekeluarga tinggal sehelai sepinggang. Mujur tiada nyawa yang terkorban.

Namun disaat persekolahan baru sahaja bermula, mereka kini dirundung kesukaran. Pakaian dan peralatan sekolah yang baru dibeli, kini telah lenyap menjadi abu. Jadi bagi mereka yang budiman, tampillah menghulur bantuan bagi meringankan beban. Walaupun sedikit, ianya amat membantu. Salurkan derma anda melalui akaun ibu Suhaida seperti di bawah:

Asiah Mashud
Maybank :162197332531

Bagi yang ingin mendapat kepastian, boleh berhubung dengan ibu atau Ayah Suhaida sendiri:

Puan Asiah: 019-6730970
En Sari Sulong: 012-2945067

Sila panjangkan email ini sekiranya anda seorang yang prihatin.


Adik Suhaida






Bila baca nama ibu Suhaida tu, terkejut sebab bintinya sama dengan kawan yang hantar email. Aku terus reply email tu dan tanya kakak dia ke? Dia cakap ya. Rumahnya kat Sungai Besar, Selangor.

Ni kawan aku masa kat UTM dulu. Skot ROTU. Dia ni kubumate aku. So agak terkejut bila biasanya baca paper tengok berita pasal rumah terbakar, tak pernah terlintas pulak hal tu terjadi kat orang yang kita kenali. 

Dan bila tahu memang kakak kawan aku, hati aku lebih cepat simpati. Mungkin sebab kita kenal. Walaupun aku tak kenal kakak dia, tapi sebab dia antara skot ROTU yang ngam dengan aku maka aku rasa aku kena bantu dia. 

Dan bagi sesiapa yang membaca dan ingin membantu, boleh la terus bank in ke akaun Pn Asiah atau hubungi beliau di nombor yang dah diberi. Mudah-mudahan bantuan anda dapat meringankan beban beliau sekeluarga. Dan insyaAllah, Allah juga membantu anda kelak.

Dan bagi skot ROTU yang membaca, mangsa ialah kakak pada Aziz Mashud, husband Musdalillah (junior kami).



Semoga mudah semuanya,

Hello Twenty Eleven!

Salam semua!

First post for the new 2011. Lambat giler. Dah 4 hari orang kecoh wish happy new year, aku baru nak kecoh arini. Whatever la.

Anyway. Last week ada banyak crappy events. Dari hal kat pejabat agama, kad kredit Bank Rakyat, bos nak tukarkan aku ke Bahagian Arkitek dan even semalam pun hati kejap kembang kejap kuncup.

But petang semalam time tunggu Along datang pick up aku from work, received one phone call yang menghilangkan segala crappy events itu dan mengembalikan senyuman. Senyum lebar oke. Oh dan bukan phone call yang bagitahu aku menang loteri USD16 mil yang tak perlukan aku bekerja seumur hidup. Bukan bukan.

Well, kawan aku yang MIA aku rasa since before her birthday in November tiba-tiba call semalam. Lama hilang makcik ni. Tanpa jejak pulak tu. Aku sms birthday wish, status FAILED. Wish kat fb pun takde respon. YM pun tak on. Ghaib terus! So bila dapat je call dari dia memang happy giler! Lenyap segal kekusutan. Haha!

Dia cakap dia terpisah dari dunia luar. Account Yahoo dia tetiba tak boleh nak masuk. Macam ada orang dah hack in. Bila keluar security question nak retrieve password, soklannya "Where did you go for honeymoon?" Dia cakap dia tak pergi honeymoon!! Cemana nak jawab tu kan.

Dan dia dah diserap permanent as PTD. Alhamdulillah. Tarikh lantikan backdate masa lapor diri bulan April tahun lepas. Murah betul rezeki kawan aku ni. Dan lepas tu dia bagitahu aku lagi..

Dia: Mit, aku ada berita gembira nak bagitahu kau ni.
Aku: Kau mengandung lagi eh?!
Dia: Haah. Aku mengandung lagi!

Dua-dua menjerit.

Hadoi.. hari tu dah risau takut tak dapat pakai baju kebaya time aku kenduri. Sekali dah preggy lagi. Pengsannn. Ni anak dia yang ketiga. Korang bayangkan. Aku baru terhegeh-hegeh buat persiapan kawen, kawan aku dah nak dapat anak ketiga. Terpaksa la aku beranak kembar tiga lepas ni nak catch up kawan-kawan aku ni. Semua anak dah dua tiga.

Dan pagi tadi, on the way pergi kerja Diana sms bagitahu dia dah book Permai Inn dari 3-5 Feb. Excited betul. Yang ni dah konpom datang time akad nikah nanti. Seronok dapat jumpa kawan-kawan lama ni. Tambah-tambah time hari bahagia kita. Tak sabar nak jumpa dorang semua!

Oh ye. Lupa nak dedahkan identiti kawan aku yang call petang semalam tu kan. 



Naufal. Anak kedua. 15 Mac 2010.

OppsieDoppsie: Umi Naufal, agak-agak kalau aku tempek gambar kita masa kau lepas pantang tu kau marah tak? Aku nak letak tapi takut kau belasah aku pulak. Kehkehkeh

Update (10.54 am) : Baru je skype ngan Zie. Dia pun dah preggy. Wah! Tahniah! Kisah Zie kawen di sini. Doakan semuanya selamat untuk pasangan baru ni k!



One month to go,
