I BOUGHT A NINTENDO Wii… WTF

SERIOUSLY. WTF.

I wasn’t planning on buying it …yet. Usually I’m against to sudden decision of buying something without doing a thorough research and survey first but I don’t know why last Friday I had this sudden urge to buy it on the spot.

You see, I’ve been wanting a Wii for a long time. I promised myself that I’d get something I ‘want‘ not ‘need‘ this December. I’ve been trying to decide between an xbox 360 with kinect or playstation 3 with move or nintendo wii. I’ve been leaning towards xbox kinect but it’s still new and launched last month so I’m kinda hesitating. After asking a few places, they told me xbox 360 + kinect cost RM1700+… omg. Way over my budget. PS3 is around RM1300+… but my wii is RM850. A few other places sell it at RM900+ though. You can get it cheaper though at some places or if you know some people… or 2nd hand console.

So I decided to buy a wii on the spot. I don’t know why! I am going to KL this week, I should have waited and ask in KL in case there’s a cheaper one but I figured if there’s anything wrong with the console within its warranty period and I’m still in Ipoh, there’s no way I’m going back to KL just to get it repaired.

The store is ok. The Wii package comes with the soft-modded Korean wii, its normal accessories like the nunchuk and remote.. and charger.. and manual in korean >.< Well it’s already soft-modded and even though I’ve lost the channels to buy wiiware and shit, but at least I didn’t have to softmod it myself and risk of bricking it. It’s way more complicated than dsi… It also comes with an portable external DVD drive to put my games in instead of using the wii dvd drive.

Originally I wanted the black US wii, and since NO ONE in Ipoh (that I know) sells the black un-modded US wii here, so I had no choice. It also comes with free 10 games which all sucks from that store… but the good thing is that I can play it and if I don’t like the game I can exchange it hehe. They still owe me like 6 games which I’m gonna exchange once better game arrives. I could download but DAMN, 3+ GB per game… I think it’s time to ditch streamyx connection and go for Unifi.

Also after 3 confusing days of reading wiihacks.com, i finally figured out how to use my portable external HDD to play downloaded games 😀 This way it’s easy to backup (or download) games and store it in there so in case I’m taking my wii to anywhere, I don’t have to carry 10000 DVDs with me.

I also bought like 9 games today. Finally found one store that do sells wii game in Ipoh. Sheesh.

Anyways, if I found a cheaper wii in KL, there’s nothing I can do. So now I”m back to being broke cuz I’ve used up my savings >.< So now back to saving again for my Nintendo 3DS fund.. Also I went to PC Show last Friday before I bought my wii.. umm Ipoh’s pc fair is getting lamer and lamer.. nothing special anymore. Just lots of annoying broadband promoters from Maxis and DiGi. It’s so annoying when you’re trying to enter the place and at least 5 people from either DiGi or Maxis (no Celcom?) asking if you wanna use their broadband. For the 10th time, I already have streamyx at home and no matter how shitty it is, it’s still way better than their portable ones.. AND I use my BB to tether to internet from my laptop.. so I don’t need a portable broadband anymore >.< Plus I’m blacklisted anyway haha. Maxis is evil.

However they do have cute mp3 players and cartoon-ish flash drives.. I want! Sooooo cute! I like the doraemon one.

Last but not least, Salam Maal Hijrah 1432 or Happy Islamic New Year! My resolution is to do more good deeds this year.

I’d like to wish muslims in the world happy eid! Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha.

I haven’t been in the mood to blog this past few days. A lot of things happened in my home that prevents me of having the mood to do ANYTHING. Oh well. I’ll try to get back my mood as soon as possible. I need some motivation.

My Halloween Horror Movies Marathon

October 30, 2010 at 6:26 PM

I went shopping yesterday and wanted to blog about it but I feel lazy to edit pictures so I’ll blog about something else first now. I’m also watching 3rd episode of ‘GLEE‘ and this is the first episode of Glee that I don’t like. It’s so sad and gloomy. The reason why I like Glee is because it’s funny and goofy… I hate gloomy stories. Plus it’s an episode about beliefs and God and religion. Please don’t do emotional episodes anymore Ryan Murphy.

It’s Halloween tonight! If I was in KL I would’ve gone somewhere for a costume party. I’d also have my movie  night with candies that I’ll buy from Cold Storage. It’s my Halloween tradition. Same goes with Christmas. My hometown used to have Cold Storage but now no more so it sucks. I don’t have my Halloween candies this year.

So tonight, with all the lights off, I’ll be watching horror movies all night long. I have a few in my list. Most are movies I haven’t  So here’s my list of movies for my horror movies night tonight:

1. Glee Episode 5: The Rocky Horror Glee Show
It’s Rocky Horror! With Glee cast 😛 Okay, I saved this for tonight in case my cousin is still awake. She better not keep talking and talking cuz I’d be seriously pissed off.

2. Nosferatu
I still haven’t watched this so I thought this is the perfect time to watch.You can never go wrong with count Orlok to creep you out.

3. Drag Me To Hell
Sam Raimi’s movie 😀 ‘Nuff said.

4.  A Nightmare on Elm Street (Remake)
I despise remakes but I didn’t bring the original movie DVD so I downloaded the remake.. also wanna see how bad this is.

5. Burnt Offerings
A random old movie I downloaded. Some reviews say good. Too bad my other movie ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ couldn’t finish downloading in time for tonight.

6. Return of the Living Dead 1 & 2
My faves. My horror movie lineup isn’t complete without some zombie fun. I’d choose some other more brutal zombie movies but I feel like watching some fun zombie movies instead.

7. Bundy: A Legacy of Evil
Thought it’s perfect time to watch this

8. Trick r Treat or The Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It
Might watch either one or both movies, depends. Halloween is not complete without horror movies relating to Halloween itself.

There are lots of other movies that are better choice for my horror movie marathon but I rather watch something that I haven’t watched for 1000 times. Just hope I don’t fall asleep too soon.

Well I’m gonna go out now to buy snacks for tonight. I shouldn’t be buying junk food because I have friggin gained my weight and fat, but I told myself, this is the only week I’m gonna let lose. I’ll go back to starving myself after Halloween.
