Post - Chinese New Year

Hey guys, girls, blog, I am back to Penang. Chinese New Year is over for me. Sadz, I miss the food. Haha. I am back in Penang but no longer in my hostel room. I am now in an apartment!! YEAH~~ No more "insect zoo" toilets. I now have a living room!! Hahaha. But one bad news is that, we have no facilities here. No swimming pool and gym here. But the apartment opposite ours has. So we always get to look at people swim but we can't. So near yet so far.

My place here has no internet. We are currently using broadbands. Digi and Maxis. We applied for Maxis because they give us a 1 week trial. Enough to buy some time for ourselves while we find for other alternatives. Streamyx is too much work and the packages now ain't cheap. We actually planned to use Maxis Broadband, but the signal here is too poor. Probably we cause we are on the hill so the signal strength is very low. For Maxis we get like 20% HSDPA signal max, though the speed is high up to 3.6Mbps but the signal is low. On the other hand, DIGI Broadband's signal is strong, almost 100% HSDPA, but the current plan we have in hand is only Digi Prepaid, only up to 384Kbps. But before streamyx, we will try cracking through encryptions first. Haha. Shhh~~ Don't tell our neighbours, they have very interesting wifi connections. Hahaha.
If you have any methods, do share with me. LoL.

Though Chinese New Year is over, but I still get lots of "Ang Pau"s from our lecturers. They are so king to release all the assignments to us right after Chinese New Year. They help us to burn off our holiday mood. :(
