Ramblings: R.I.P

Yup~ PC finally RIP. But at least I'm quite certain to have narrow down to faulty motherboard. It's nearly 5 years old and I suppose its high time to upgrade anyway. Come weekend, and I will be heading to Sim Lim Square, Singapore one-stop shopping for your all DIY computer needs.

I certainly hope to reuse back some working parts like 512M RAM, 40G harddrive, Matrox G550 display card, DVD burner. Yes, its old but still working fine. I don't play games hence do not require the latest & greatest graphic card, bleeding with cutting edge 3D rendering & co-processing capabilities.

So probably I need to just DIY the small platform chassis, motherboard c/w CPU. btw, Pricelist can be found conveniently online at Hardwarezone SG

*sighz* I foresee another ULTRA HECTIC weekend, not to mention the regular work that I'm trying to complete before my vacation starts. I guess it is times like this that I have learn how shift my gear down and smell the flowers along the way. Got a couple of shots from my Malaysia, Cameron Highlands trip 2002. Folks at GREEN CULTURE have been kind to provide me with some leads. I'm hoping to locate a more precise ID (i.e Common & Latin botanical names) of these plants. Please HELP ME if you can ID them, otherwise, please just enjoy those beautiful plants.

btw, the last photo is my Orchid that just bloom. Been trying to ID this as well :P

too bad about the PC but isn't it exciting to hunt down a new PC / PC parts (for me - it's any excuse to do a spot of shopping) :P
can't help with the ID but I do like the flowers, and the cacti (this much I know) in the 2nd row!
