Danger! LPG Tank Ahead

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

This photo was taken en-route to work (after lunch) on 26 January 2006 by Azidin. I was driving at that time so we were quite far away from the lorry. I was afraid that the bloody thing will fall on my car if I get too close. I tried to honk the guy and let […]

Studio Traffic

Got Stormpay?

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

I’ve heard about Stormpay for quite a while, but have never interested in taking a peek at it as I thought that it is just another pyramid scheme or fraudulent money making site. Two days ago a friend forwarded me a link to stormpay, and as I was irritated with the spam technique I just […]
