Mango Delighted

It's mango time again, since the mango tree fruits a new lot of 'Nam Dok Mai'

I don't know how many Bangkokians in my generation has an experience of picking mangoes from the tree by using 'Ta Kror'. Of course, finding a mango tree in Bangkok is hard enough. A story of children gangster stealing mangoes from their neighbor is now outdated. So, I was not surprised at all when my friends really had no idea that lamps in the 'Mango Tango' store at Siam Square were actually 'Ta Kror'.

About myself, I remembered that I tried to pick up mangoes by using Ta Kror when I was young, but the fact that it was kinda heavy so my dad had to help holding it.

Growing up, I couldn't remember when was the last time that I pick up these mangoes since I hadn't pay any attention about it. But this year, because I tried to move my working station out of my bedroom to the lawn, I started to look around the lawn once again. And then my mango mission resumes...

Though this might seem a simple task, but it was NOT. I just simply failed from the beginning task of the mission, 'finding the ripe one'.

Wandering around the mango tree is hard enough for my case, since while I was looking for the mangoes, I had to look down to the ground,  avoiding the 'land mines' (from the dogs -- guess you know what I mean) that were scattered around the tree.

The trick of picking the right mango is to look for those having somekind of 'white powder', but I just couldn't differentiate them. So dad had to assist me telling which one to pick. 

Reaching Ta-Kror to mangoes ain't an easy task too, usually, there would be stupid branches  that obstruct you from reaching the mango. And if the mango was too high to reach easily, a stair is needed. Optional 'Double' or 'Triple' shot would increase the difficulties too :P

But no matter how hard to get them, I'm still in love with Mango anyway\[^o^]/

P.S. Has anybody try "mango with rice" for breakfast? (Hom ma li rice, not sweetened sticky rice) It's good na :P

Oh Crab!

'Holy Crab'

It should have been another perfect meal tonight, with 'ปูม้านึ่ง' (สดๆ) and fresh strawberry in cream syrup (yummy!)...

...if I haven't been 'ผ่าฟันคุด' this morn'...

This is my second time (and thanks god it is the last time).The first operation was done months before but this time it is so much worse as the tooth sat down deeper. And it took about 50 minutes (compared to 20 minutes in the first time) that I had to laid on a dentist chair, open my mouth, close my eyes, and wish that the operation would be done in a just few seconds. (Of course, it's not...)

Oh, for your information.... No, the dentist didn't say 'it won't hurt' before the operation began, instead he gave me a few tablets of pain reliever pills.

Wish I could speak normally again ASAP since I have to do the job interview on this Tuesday -_-

P.S. What I wrote might sound horrible, but the dentist is a professor (อาจารย์หมอ) from Chula and is absolutely keen on his job. And though I had some difficulties while eating, I can slowly ate those crabs and strawberies. Not too bad, eh?

    ผ่าฟันคุดเนี่ยเป็นอะไรที่น่ากลัวโคตร ๆ

    ก็หวังว่าครั้งต่อ ๆ ไปจะไม่เจ็บมาก (เอ๊ะ ครั้งสุดท้ายแล้วนี่)

This morn', Na'Tang dropped us some stuffs from the US. As always, the bag was full with Vitamins. But then there were two black boxes inside that bag labeled.....




Anyway, after mind blowing for a couple minutes, dad just told me that these iPhones are not ours. And R'Poom's friend would pick them up later.  (which I guess pretty soon)


It seems that I have to stick with my k610i for a while....

Talking about phone, I just founded a very humorous news confirmed that everyone hates paying phone bills, even the FBI!!!

CNN  reported that Phone companies just cut FBI wiretaps (สายดักฟัง) due to unpaid bills...

See? So don't laugh at anyone whose phone is cut because they forget to pay bills ^0^

Note : After upgrading memory to my macbook, my PC started to protest me by boycott everyone in the family (meaning that it just won't 'work' or... 'turn on'... just simply 'dead')... 

The result? I had to give him a new power supply =_=

Memory Upgraded

Nothing much...
Just bought two 1GB rams for my MacBook (so that will be 2 GB totally), after suffering slow process while running Parallels Desktop (Running Windows XP on Mac OS X). 

Installing memory modules was quite a thrilling experience, a user guide told "Use two fingers with firm, even pressure to push in the memory modules. You should hear a click when the memory is inserted correctly." So I did!, firmly insert the modules, but I didn't here any 'Click' at all... Then when I tried to boot my Macbook... it just simply failed...

Finally, after trying for a few times, it worked (Of course, no 'click' at all). But that after pushing with a lot of 'pressure' on them (So much that I afraid it would break into pieces).

So, what should I do with the old 512MB modules? Any suggestion? Anyone interesting? (They're PC5300 667MHz DDR2 Rams)

    - Two 1GB RAM modules
    - น่าจะ parallel desktops?
    - Anyone interested?  

  3. # Blogger j a r o z

    จะเอาจริงๆรึเปล่าล่ะ (ตอนนี้ 256x2 เหรอ)

    (เรานึกว่าไม่มีใครใช้แรมน้อยกว่า 1GB แล้วนะ สำหรับเครื่องที่รับแรม DDR2 PC 5300 667MHz)


    (น้อมรับข้อผิิดพลาด ยกเว้น Parallels Desktop เปนชื่อซอฟท์แวร์เฉพาะครับผม)

    เหอะ ๆ เอาไปก็ทำอะไรไม่ได้ เครื่องนี้ยังรับ PC2100 DDR-266 MHz อยู่เลย (จะ 5 ปีแล้ว ควรจะต้องเริ่มมองหาเครื่องใหม่หรือยังเนี่ย...)
