In the meantime, in light to these computer problems, I have decided to upload some of my photos and memories on the blog as a keepsake as I fear that someday, my future laptops, external hard drives and other back-up storage devices may fail me.

Old Nokia Cellphones
|The phones I used to own.|
I was a loyal Nokia fanboy probably till the almost very end before they adopted the Microsoft Mobile OS and ever since then, it went downhill from there. The Nokia N9 was the last Nokia phone I ever owned and I bought it simply because of the name. It was a great phone. The camera was awesome, the MeeGo OS was fluid and the phone is nice to use. But it lacked the apps and other advantages that Android and Apple phones have. After a few months of using, I was already bored with the phone and finally jumped ship into Android by buying the Galaxy S2. The N9 investment was a bad one as I bought it without contract for $800 and sold it off to the Bedok Cash Converters for $90.
As for the other phones, in order to make room, I donated it to the Salvation Army, thanks to my attempt to be a minimalist and owned fewer things.

Former "Rock" Band. Audiopilots/Back to the Disaster
Anyways, it was motivated in secondary one when Shahril let his intentions to me that he wanted to start a band. It became a reality when in the following year, I started mixing with people out of my class (I was in normal technical, the rest was in normal academic). In our first roles, I was supposed to be a rhythm guitarist, Ashraf the bassist, Ariff the drummer and Shahril the lead guitarist and singer. But we switched when Ariff struggled to read drum chords and myself unable to play the guitar at all. And myself and Ariff switched roles.
Soon, we first covered the song "The Girl that the Bad Guys Want" by Bowling for Soup. Since then we also covered songs from Green Day, Fall Out Boy and other popular and "in" rock bands at that time.
