After acquiring a target, Anthony started to fill up a cup with ice cubes.

Shawn, feeling fearful, tried to negotiate.

Anthony got pissed.

Anthony threatened Shawn again.

Nicky the kaypochi who wanted to feel godly, joined in the threats.

Shawn who couldn’t take the pressure, ran off to his former high school scouts.

Shawn : “For the love of 1st South, drink this for me mofos!”

The finger : “Eh! Dun kesi!”

Shawn : “Ah, bollocks!”

Shawn : “I hate you guys.”

762 views

10.00 am – Cleaned my bathroom’s shower.

Took out the eggs from the fridge,

dumped it into the pot and fired it up till it boils.

A layer of hard egg whites at the sides and

not-cooked-enough clear egg whites.

Still edible la anyway.

The Tuesday I Tried Solving My Fujifilm Finepix F20 Focus Error

3,497 views

09.00 am – Had soft boiled eggs,

a cup of milo,

a glass of apple cider vinegar + honey,

buttered toasts and

an egg tart

for breakfast.

10.00 pm – Went over to Penang’s Fujifilm Service Centre to hand in my Finepix F20.

The service form. You see, the thing I am afraid most is getting cheated. The fella servicing my camera can easily say anything he wants, if he wants. Maybe the problem is some dust particles stuck at the lens but he may say that the lens is spoiled and I need to spend hundreds in repair costs. That is what I am afraid of the most. Anyways, the expected damage to my pocket is expected to be at RM200.

10.30 pm – When I came home I surfed around and saw a post on a website offering a possible solution to my problem.

fujifilm focus error solution

11.00 pm – And so I went back to Fujifilm’s service centre and took back my camera, wondering if the solution above works.

11.30 pm – Sadly, it didn’t. Hmmmmmm.. I thought maybe I could unscrew and clean the lens myself. Took out my precision screwdrivers and started unscrewing.

Sadly, I couldn’t unscrew these 3 tight buggers as I didn’t have the right sized screwdriver.

12.00 pm – Went over to Jelutong’s Upzen Hardware

and bought another set of precision screwdrivers, the right size this time.

12.30 pm – Unscrewed the remaining 3 and… ta da!

The naked Fujifilm Finepix F20.

01.00 pm – Had lunch.

06.30 pm – Had an early dinner.

08.00 pm – Badminton @ Grand View Apartments.

10.00 pm – Bought a packet of nasi kandar from Batu Maung’s

Dinas.

12.00 am – zzzzZZzZZZzzzzzzzzz
