Hi guys! How's your Ramadhan so far?

 For me, it's been a tough few days as i'm trying to get used with fasting for more than 12 hours..i mean, 18 hours to be exact. Normal routines such as work, playing tennis and occasional cooking for my housemates have kept me busy as well as serving myself a plate of implementing good deeds for Ramadhan such as sadaqah, reciting the Quran and visiting the mosque as frequent as I could.

I've been missing home lately and there's nothing much to do here in Sheffield anyways. The weather is getting normal now with rain getting less and less each day- we see more of the sun now.

I wonder how's it like in Malaysia now. With all the glorious food stalls lining up for everyone- foods such as satay, laksa, kebabs, roti and ikan bakar just waiting to be served during iftar.

One thing that i've learnt in these few days of Ramadhan in the UK, i'll always be grateful with the mosque in Malaysia as their are more spacious, comfortable and yet, it's not filled up as I see here in Sheffield.

Just sharing a few thoughts out of my mind. So how's your Ramadhan so far? Time flies so fast now and in just 3 weeks it'll be Eid, hehe. Like a status of a friend of mine read-

"Baru sehari puasa dah main lagu raya..aduh2"

Let's Play Digimon On Your Android Phone!

Update: I just knew that you can have 4 virtual pets in your android device so if you're alone then you can play on your own via loopback connection! :)

First of all, I would like to thank all my readers as RandomApples have reached 200k pageviews!


Ok so I was pretty bored at home after my usual work scrubbing all the walls and kitchenwares at the university accommodation so I had this app installed to keep me occupied before I yawn myself to death-

It's called, VPET!

Or, as most of know it, Digimon!!

Aku ingat lagi time zaman2 skolah bawak bende alah ni main time rehat, main time lepas kelas and main lepas skolah. Nang popular gila Digimon dolok. My first ever digimon was the first version and it was the yellow coloured version and it was made in Indonesia (Not sure if this is My first ever adult digimon was Greymon and has fought me countless battles and died proud as a warrior. I had lots of Digimon when I was a kid and I just love the natural square ones compared to the Digivice (in which your Digimon is much stronger).

I remember once, and it was during primary 6 where there was a spotcheck and I had to put my digimon inside my underwear since there's no place to hide it. No choice, okay? Haha.

So it's pretty obvious, anyone who played Digimon before should feel at home when they install VPET  on their ANDROID PHONE. I repeat- ANDROID. Bukan Iphone. Bukan Windows. Bukan Nokia 3310. 


Just go to Google Play store and search for VPET and you get to choose which version you want. Currently there's version 1-4.

The best thing about having a Digimon on your phone is that you could battle with your friends anywhere, anytime you like! No more metal scrubbing- just put your phone via bluetooth, wifi or the internet and face off any challengers!

One thing that I dislike about this app is that you couldn't "cheat" your way to the 3rd adult digimon, like Teddymon, Metal Greymon, etc- if you know what I mean.

Apa gik? Jom la battleeeeeee!!!

Skarang ni da tau da nak buat ape time rehat mase kerja..hoho.

And oh, 

You're Welcome.

P:S// Hopefully I'll get Greymon again as my first Digimon..I feel like a child once again!!

Sheffield 3.0

I've been moving to my new house recently and there's been no internet connection- hence the no update. It's a decent house and very lovely, I love the lounge pretty much and my room has a fireplace in it, just that it's not working. But still.

Life has been pretty boring lately with no classes as usual and most of my friends are back in Malaysia enjoying the good old sun and toasty weather. It's cold and wet here in Sheffield. British summer sucks and it sucks balls. Whenever you wanna go out and soak in the sun to have fun and enjoy a little bit of good time there'll be rain to crush your dreams.


So all of my application for internships in the UK got rejected, maybe because I'm a 2nd year in my master's degree but most of them said that I was in lack of experience. Yes, experience.

I'll try to get as many volunteering jobs as I could in my 3rd year and try again, well it's not as if I'll die if I didn't get any practical experience but it's essential if you want to get a very good job after graduation. I'm settling in as a university accommodation cleaner in my university and to be honest the pay is damn darn good-

It's RM40 a day and I could get like RM160-240 depending on how busy the day is.

That's like 3x more than the average pay for an engineer!! Tapi yalah, terpaksa cuci dapur, jamban, bilit. Sikdala kotor ne, just cuci debu and buang tekih2 kulat ngan dakik oven..hahahaha

Syok la joli beli barang time dapat gaji!! Woohooo.

Anyways, olympics would be held in London and obviously everyone knows that. I wanted to see a few games live but the tickets are too expensive! I'll just settle myself with watching in live streaming on the net. It's

I just can't wait to go back home now. Just a few weeks left and i'm back to sunny Malaysia!

Macbook Pro Cleaning

I've had my mac for almost 3 years now it served me really really well. I love my mac a lot, and during this time of the year the battery's health have dropped down to 70% and everytime I set my mac on idle I could hear those disastrous sounds of fan coming out from nowhere.

So it's time- time to clean my Macbook Pro!!

Tools you might need- (from Amazon UK)

Screwdrivers (£2.99)

Dust Blower (£3.20)

And ofcourse, your own MBP.. =P

So, first thing you might do is flip your MBP to the backside and use your screwdrivers to open one the screws. Specifically, you might need a Philips 00 screwdriver to unscrew the mac. (Please note that there are some different lengths of screws inside the MBP so you might need to arrange your screws accordingly after you've undone them)

After unscrewing all of the screws. It's time to lift the back cover of the MBP and unveil the dungeon of dust, the lair of ants and spiders-

So I took my can of air blower, gave it a good shake, placed the tip at the end of the can and gave a whiff of air to the surroundings-

SPPPPPPPPPPPFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF---- the sound of sharp air blowing the dust of from my MBP. (Be sure not to touch any of the internals using your hands!!)

And the results;

A clean, better performing, battery saving, gaming enhanced and dust-free MBP!!!

It is a fact that blowing all the dust away from your laptop makes your laptop to perform better and makes it last longer.

Give your laptop a clean and you'll feel the difference!!

Hope this simple tutorial helps. Hehe. =)
