My Laptop Is Growing!

Am I "jinxed?" This is the second time I received a second-hand laptop from my sons...

Case number one... my son gave me his five year old Toshiba... when he handed it over to me, it was truly fine. After using for a twelve months, it refused to be switched on one fine day...

Case number two... my another son passed me his Dell (3 years old) and it was also truly fine when I took it from him. Well, in less than a month, see what I found when I switched the laptop on...
Two black lines appearing out of nowhere.....
and the lines are "growing taller" each day....
Any remedy for this??
Anyone experienced this before??


  1. LOL....the laptops "overworked" :p. Just joking.

    anyway. the black lines are cracks or like TV rosak kind of line? Maybe need to send to shop

  2. it's not crack but the screen pixel seems to have some dead pixel problem. If it doesnt bothers u then just leave as it since changing the whole screen might cost you rm300-500. Might as well get a new lappy :)

  3. I'm using my daughter's old laptop...ASUS, 5 years old - no problem leh? Touch wood....

  4. kathy: as u said,..maybe overworked la! or overheated.. hahaha...

    henry: is it due to overheating?

    stp: why do we parents seem to be using second hand laptops? :)

  5. haha too much blogging and FB :p

    looks like wear and tear over the years?

  6. disturbing to see the lines on the screen right? probably it's time to get yourself a new one lo..or an ipad!! :D

  7. Guess yr laptop overworked liaw. Yeah, when our kids get something new, sure the old one will be given to us, like my handphone, 2nd hand too. But as long as it is still usable, it should be alright.

  8. Looks like its time to buy a new one for mother's day :D

  9. recently there's a single red line on the left side of my laptop. It's still here but no problem at all.

  10. trekking your blog!!! that's what happend to our camera. the black ones are liquid. it will spread throughout the screen if napabayaan lang daw.


  11. kristie: blogging u mean.. hehee..

    agnes: sometimes blocking certain words..

    irene: we are always the hand-down people! hahha..

    daniel: hinting ma...

    wenn: mine is here on the right..

    icegurl: hope not that serious..

  12. Must be the LCD. Yes, it's time for you to get a new laptop :). How about getting one of those tablets?

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
