PS3 Slim Unveiled

Today in Germany, Sony dropped some game-industry bombshells at its press conference at the 2009 GamesCom expo. Chief among them is the new PS3 Slim due out next month--a new version of the PS3 that's lighter, consumes less electricity, and, most importantly, is cheaper, at a price of $299 US, €299 in Europe and £249 in the UK. PS3 Slim available first week of September worldwide. September 1 in the US, September 3 in Europe, Japan, and Australasia.

The current PS3 models each had $100 shaved off of them: effective tomorrow, the 80GB PS3 will be $299 and the 160GB PS3 will be $399. Like the current PS3 models, the PS3 Slim is not backwards compatible with any PlayStation 2 games. The PS3 Slim is 32 percent smaller and 36 percent lighter and has 34 percent less power consumption than the current model. It will have all the same features and functionality as the current PS3.

I still love my old PS3. This new design looks very simple and it has the PS2 style mark instead of the Spider-Man style font on the old PS3.

BBQ Party

On 2nd July 2009, me and my buddies organized a BBQ party. This party is part of our planned activities for this semester break. Every semester break, we organized an activity to get together and have fun. This will strengthened our friendship bond. Last semester break, we organized a badminton match and last year semester break we organized a trip to Kuantan, Pahang. For next year semester break, we have planned to organize another trip to Kuantan, Pahang. This time, i hope all the members can join the trip.

The BBQ party idea was brought up by Mr Fadzhli. He told me about his idea. I agreed with his idea and told him to called everybody to a meeting to discuss on this matter. I suggested that we gather everyone to a small breakfast gathering and discuss the matter. Everyone agreed and we gathered for breakfast on Wednesday, 1st July 2009, morning, at Stadium Restaurant.

Not everyone attended the meeting. The attendees is me(Hirzi), Mr. Fadzhli, Mr. Farhan, Mr. Ehsan, Mr. Fazril, and Mr. Shahnawaz. Mr. Meor and Mr. Azizul couldn't make it as they have they own matter to accomplished. After having our breakfast, we started to discuss the matter. Mr. Fadzhli explain what he had in mind about the BBQ party. Everyone listened and gave they opinion and suggestion. Date and time is Thursday, 2nd July 2009, 8.00 pm, the venue is at USJ 12 field. No obligation from the others on the time and venue. Then we decide what to buy and who the person in charge. I suggested we buy the marinated chicken as we did during our trip to Kuantan. Its delicious and suitable for BBQ party. Everyone agreed and we collected RM10 from each individuals as an expense to buy all the item required. Me, Mr. Fadzhli, and Mr. Farhan is responsible to buy all the stuff and we going to but it on the next day morning. The meeting adjourned.

On Thursday, 2nd July 2009 morning, me, along with Mr. Fadzhli and Mr. Farhan went to Mydin to buy all the item. We buy the chickens, sausages, and then Mr. Fadzhli wanted to add something to the menu, the prawn. After done with the shopping, we dropped the items at Mr. Fadzhli house and went to the appointed venue to check out the place. Then we went home and prepared for the night.

Around 7.55 pm, i went to pick up Mr. Fadzhli, the items and went to the venue. Upon arriving, Mr. Farhan is already there waiting for us then Mr. Meor arrived shortly. We transferred the items to the location and start to setup. After a few minutes, Mr. Ehsan, Mr. Shahnawaz and Mr. Fazril arrived. Mr. Ehsan act as the photographer for the night. Mr. Azizul is the last person to arrived.

We start to burn the wood charcoal. After a few trial, we were unable to light up the charcoal. Then we realized we were facing a big problem. No light up charcoal, no food. Then Mr. Farhan requested someone to go and buy the fire starter. Mr. Fazril and Mr. Shahnawaz volunteered to go. Meanwhile, we still trying to light up the charcoal. We used the coconut fibre and newspaper as the fire started. We still failed to light up the charcoal. Not long after that, Mr. Fazril and Mr. Shahnawaz returned with the fire starter. We hoped the fire starter will do the magic. But then again, no.

We were devastated. We might have to canceled the party if we weren't able to light up the charcoal. Everybody started to get hungry. Maybe there is something wrong with the charcoal. Then i volunteered to go buy a new charcoal. Mr. Fadzhli came along with me and we went searching for the charcoal. We were looking for a artificial charcoal like the one we bought last time because its easier to burn and the heat is much hotter than regular charcoal. Just as i thought, many mini market didn't sell that type of charcoal. Then we bought a regular charcoal that according to the shopkeeper, it can be burn easier.

We returned to the party and saw that Mr. Farhan already able to lit up the charcoal but the heat and the fire is not enough to cook the chicken. We change the charcoal with the one that we just bought. Not long after that, after 2 hours of trying, finally we were able to lit up the charcoal at 10 pm. Everybody show the sign of relieved on their face. Finally we get to eat.

Mr. Farhan is our chef for the night. Mr. Meor and Mr. Fadzhli help with keeping the fire on. Me and Mr. Ehsan is the photographer for the night. Our menu for the night is marinated chickens, multiple flavor of sausages, and marinated prawn. The night is full of laughter and joy as we enjoying the moment we spend together.

After a lot of energy, sweat and effort have been poured, finally the food is ready. We cover the pathway with news papers, put the food, and we all sit and eat. Its an unforgettable moment. Then we have a guest. Few cats have made their appearance. Maybe they wanted to celebrate with us.

Then Mr. Azizul have to excuse himself because he had some matter to attend to. He's the latest person to join our community. With this, our community have became more lively and happening.

At 12 am, the party have reach its climax. We cleaned the place, throw all the trash, and pack our stuff. After shaking hands, and say good bye, we all went back home.

This is one of the moment that will longed on our mind forever. This is just the beginning. There will be more fun and enjoyable activities that will be planned on the future. Until next time my friends.

Jordan Chandler admits he lied about Michael Jackson

Admits he lied

After the sudden death of Michael Jackson, Evan Chandler tells the truth.

In 1993, Chandler told a psychiatrist and police that he and Jackson had engaged in sexual acts that included oral sex, the boy gave detailed description of Jackson’s genitals. The case was settled out of court for a reported $22 million, but the strain led Jackson to begin taking painkillers. Eventually he became addicted.

Now maybe for the remorse of his death Chandler decides to tell us the truth. ” I never meant to lie and destroy Michael Jackson but my father made me to tell only lies. Now i can’t tell Michael how much i’m sorry and if he will forgive me ”.Evan Chandler was tape-recorded saying amongst other things, “If I go through with this, I win big-time. There’s no way I lose. I will get everything I want and they will be destroyed forever…

Under the influence of a controversial father (Jordan Chandler) told his son to tell that Jackson had touched his penis. Evan Chandler then told a psychiatrist and later police that he and Jackson had engaged in acts of kissing, masturbation and oral sex, as well as giving a detailed description of what he alleged were the singer’s genitals.
” Now for the first time i can’t bare to lie anymore. Michael Jackson didn’t do anything to me, all was my father lies to escape from being poor.”

Michael Jackson’s ordeal lasted from 1993 - May 2005. The state’s criminal trial and verdict were concluded in May 2005. Michael Jackson was declared innocent of the charges.

Reading his statement making my blood boil. He made money when Jacko was alive and now he's making money when Jacko is dead! Thanks for killing off our icon!

Michael Jackson Died at 50


Michael Jackson, defined in equal parts as the world’s greatest entertainer and perhaps its most enigmatic figure, was about to attempt one of the greatest comebacks of all time. Then his life was cut shockingly — and so far, mysteriously — short.

The 50-year-old musical superstar died Thursday, just as he was preparing for what would be a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London’s famed 02 arena. Jackson had been spending hours and hours toiling with a team of dancers for a performance he and his fans hoped would restore his tarnished legacy to its proper place in pop.

Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital where doctors continued to work on him.

“It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until results of the autopsy are known,” his brother Jermaine said.

Jackson’s death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music’s premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage.

His 1982 album “Thriller” — which included the blockbuster hits “Beat It,” “Billie Jean” and “Thriller” — is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide.

The public first knew him as a boy in the late 1960s, when he was the precocious, spinning lead singer of the Jackson 5, the singing group he formed with his four older brothers out of Gary, Ind. Among their No. 1 hits were “I Want You Back,” “ABC” and “I’ll Be There.”

He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his backward-gliding moonwalk, his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched singing, punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks, as was his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance.

Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music’s biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie. Jackson’s sudden death immediately evoked comparisons to that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977.

Michael Joseph Jackson was born Aug. 29, 1958, in Gary. He was 4 years old when he began singing with his brothers — Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito — in the Jackson 5. After his early success with bubblegum soul, he struck out on his own, generating innovative, explosive, unstoppable music.

When he died, i was sleeping, and my mom came knocking the door and said that the local tv morning news said that Michael Jackson died from a heart attack. She knew i am a big fan of MJ since i was a little kid. I grew up with his music. He's already been a part of my life. I can't believe what she said and i ask her how, why did MJ died. I quickly get up from my bed and turn on my computer and start browsing for the news. Then i read the headline on yahoo says that Michael Jackson Died at 50. I can't believe he has passed away. Im not gaining enough information from yahoo site, then i start browsing the CNN site, the MSNBC site. I was devastated. One of my dream is to watch MJ live in concert. When he passed away, i felt like a part of my life is gone. The thing that i thought will always be there is gone. R.I.P Michael. You will not be forgotten. You will always be remembered as a legend, The King of POP. I love you Michael. I will be missing you.
