N82 Dead & Alive

My N82 Nokia phone is about 1.5 years old. Few months back the battery started giving problem, it only last about 1 day after a full charge. So I replaced it with a new one. Unfortunately, the new battery did not extend its life. In fact, it died. I mean, totally no breathing...totally blank. So I just leave it in the book shelf, and got myself a new phone.

After so many months, I've almost forgot about it. Surprisingly, hubby "IM" me and told me he managed to save the phone and now it's back to normal. He tried to rescue the phone using several methods. He tried to connect the phone to the computer through USB cable and update the software. Unfortunately, it did not work, as the the computer can't detect the hand phone. Seriously, my phone was totally cannot on, how can the computer detect anything? After several failed attempts, finally hubby got an idea. He then tried hard reset + update software at the same time. In this way, he able to force the phone initiate for 1~2 second, just enough time for the computer to register the phone and proceed to update the software. So, the software update was successful, and my phone come back to life again!

Honestly, I like N82 more than my current N79. Most importantly, its camera perform better. Want to see the difference?

This photo is taken using N82. It's clear and sharp.

And this is from N79. With the exactly same setting, the photo came out a bit blur. Disappointing?

Thanks to hubby to safe my lovely Nokia N82. Some of my food blog photos will still rely on it. Welcome back!

Some Updates

This blog is abandoned for almost 10 days. Sorry to my dear blog. I have no idea what to write.

Anyway, I recall what I've done since the beginning of April:

I've picked up a habit. I spend some time each night to read on nutrition, health, recipe, and religious books.

I followed a natural detox program for the first time. Although I just shed off a few kilos, but I managed to fit into my old jeans and slacks. This is a good start, and I swear I will do the detox on regular basis.

I will try my best to exercise at least twice a week for 30 minutes.

I also spend some time to study on healthy recipes. I introduce more fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains in our daily diet.

My goal is to maintain a healthier life and to be as slim as before married. :P

Happy 8 Months Old!

Tiger turned 8 months old today. He weighs about 1.4kg . He has not grown much for the past 2 months. Maybe his size will remain the same as what he is now. What a small lap dog. :D

I have a question in my mind. I'm wondering shall I find him a mate?

What a Shocking News!

It's really a shocking news to me. 阿桑, the Taiwanese singer passed away because of breast cancer. She's just 34 years old!

Lately I read on a few English and Chinese nutritional and detoxification books. I learned about how dangerous if our body failed to detox naturally. I gained some knowledge on the effects of the accumulating toxic in our body. Besides, there is another study explains on how the oxidation stress damage the human body.

We got to take care of ourselves by eating the right food. Taking an adequate amount of reliable nutrition supplements as antioxidant is very important. This is the better way to prevent chronic degenerative diseases. It'll be good if you able to follow the natural detoxification program on timely basis.

Experiencing The Magic Cooker

I bought a 5L Magic cooker last week. 60 minutes Earth Hour will never end. This is one of our action to support the campaign. Instead of boiling soup in slow cooker for 6 hours a day, hubby & I are slowly shift to using this magic cooker instead.

The magic cooker consists of 2 stainless steel inner pots (2L & 5L) and an external pot as thermal pot. The 5L inner pot can be used to boil soup, dessert and porridge, while the 2L inner pot can be used to steam rice, fish and other stuffs. The contents of inner pot(s) is bring to boil under gas stove for 30 minutes before transferring it into the thermal pot. After that the soup will be kept warm for the next few hours.

My first experience in cooking peanut soup with this pot was not successful one. I followed the instruction as per the user manual to just boil the soup content for 10 minutes. So, ended up I had to continue simmer the soup to get it thoroughly cooked. I learnt the lesson. For the 2nd time, I cooked a pot of dessert for 30 minutes, then transferred it into thermal pot. After 2 hours, I reboiled it for another 15 minutes and kept in the thermal pot until time to consume it. It turned out great! Yes!

Yesterday was hubby's turn to boil soup for our dinner (I'm the one who prepare the ingredients). it is. It turned out as nice as boiling in slow cooker.
