All is well...

Hello!
Has everyone changed their passwords to safer ones?
I don't know much but let's share what we know, ya?

Set a password as unrelated to you as possible. Thus, birthdate is a big nono. The first thing that hackers/crackers will try is usually the birthdates.

Alphanumerics are encouraged. An average hacker or a hacking program running 24/7 will take around 2 months to crack a 7 alphanumerical password. So..the more the merrier.

Scan your computer as often as you can. Viruses like trojan, once planted and activated, can be use to monitor activites on the computer. Some can even be used to control your machine.

I'm sure many of you know much more about all these than I do. Share alright? If some of the things that I've stated are somehow inaccurate, please do correct me.

Well, enough of all the geeky stuff. With all those crazy bombings going on, why are there people who strive to do such pointless stuf, I wonder.

After so many unhappy happenings, let's have Abbie cheer us up!

YAY!!! (I'm not the only one who is cheering, right?)



















I know it's abit weird to be wearing CNY clothings..but that is what happened when you have a siao mummy with one month's MC who has nothing better to do.
Not forgetting the head band thingy from the siao daddy.
Poor Abbie darling...


Abbie was actually playing in her walker prior to this photo. But she was lifted from it by Gong Gong (My uncle) and was 'held captive' by him, because she was chasing after the maid's broom while she was sweeping the floor.

In a little more than 2 months' time, Baby Abigail will be a year old already. She's growing so fast...

Oh, and thanks for everyone who voted for her. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Appalling, simply appalling.

You know something is wrong when your phone rings at 4.30 in the morning.

Yanyan was crying when I answered it. There had been a few thoughts running in my mind, speculating what might have happened.

The truth, was way beyond my imagination.

'Shuyin, my blog is gone. All my blog entries are gone. My emails too.. All 3000+ of them. How?'

While asking questions to find out what exactly happened, suddenly I was angry at myself for being so ignorant about these Internet technology stuff.

Yanyan told me to go back to sleep. Stupid girl.

I turned on my lappy and visited her site. When I saw what was there, I was fuming.

HOW CAN THERE BE PEOPLE WHO WILL DO SUCH A THING?!?!
DELETE EVERYTHING. FINE.
STILL TOOK THE TIME TO SELECT A NEW TEMPLATE, CHANGE HER PROFILE AND BLOG. NOT TO FORGET THE AUDACITY TO ASK PEOPLE TO EMAIL TO THE ACCOUNT WHICH HE/SHE HACKED.

By then, I logged on to my blogger page, ready to blog, to scold.

Yanyan asked me not to. Instead, she asked me to leave a comment, to ask the person to return everything to her, take it that she was begging. (The 'blogging princess' don't even have an account for her to comment.)

Thus, I wrote this:

Can you please not do this?
Take it as we are begging you.

I don't believe that Yanyan (Xiaxue) has done anything to deserve this.

You've just denied her 3 years of effort to come this far, scratch by scratch. Not forgetting her precious memories of her life with everyone of us.

Please return her blog to her, together with all other accounts.

Please.
Shuyin

Did a search on the NET, attempting to find out more about hackers and all. Apart from that, I can only keep hitting the refresh buttons for the comments page as well as my email browser.

Yes, that was how desperate we were.

With every refresh, I got more and more agitated.

I am so disgusted that I cannot even type out that sound I made every time I see one of those comments.

Look at these:

"Not forgetting her precious memories of her life with everyone of us."
yeah...you sure were integral in her life....can you spell L-O-L too?

Pongster 提到...
whoever did this, i honestly think it's funny HAHA i dont even know who this girl is but judging from the comments posted by her "undying" fans with an average weight of 160kg, they could all use with a healthy dose of prozac induced happiness..

kudos man, kudos

to all these losers....cry..me..a..river..

Wow. He quoted me.
And guess what? He thought I was a fan. Fucking IDIOT.

Yaya..I know some of you will say, 'What makes you think everyone should know who you are? BHB'

That's my point. There are alot of people who don't know alot of things. And there they are, making malicious assumptions and attacks about people whom they barely know.

Ok, somemore:

RaY7 提到...
guess we won't be hearing the 'F' word from her for quite some time.

What goes around turns around!!

(This guy is the best. He's there ever since I first commented in the morning. It's now 2.30pm)

He who mourns for her.. 提到...
Lol.. all hail the hacker that mellowed this extremely disturbing and utterly tasteless PINK blog!

Finally, no more narcissistic musings anymore.. Hopefully she'd take the hint, quit blogging forever and trip and fall into dog poo (although i'm highly skeptical that this would happen.. the quit blogging part.. i'm keeping my fingers crossed nonetheless)



fleshimp 提到...
who's the one who did this to you?!?
i want to give him/her a big hug!
ha.
sometimes, some of us need to be forced to eat humble pie. like there's a greater calling out there.
eat that! you snobbish, puke spewing b*tch. =)
here's one big giant smile for your plight: ^*___________________*^
p.s. start believing in karma.


duothrust 提到...
GET A LIFE PEOPLE! This is a wake-up call for her to stop behaving like a spoilt brat! Haha! Hey midget, cheer up...at least u've made our day with this fantastic news!


duothrust 提到...
The hacker shud have made public all her emails. After all, it's interesting to find out what's in the mailbox of a midget. Oops...rubbing salt into the wound huh? Hmm..now someone pass me the pepper pls!


Yanyan said she was very sorry to make me wake up that early for nothing.

To see there are actually such retards lying around on Earth wasting space is worthy enough for the lack of sleep.
Simply because I don't know anyone of them, nor I have friends like that. I am so so glad.

I do not agree with Yanyan all the time, but there are other ways to do things. E.g.Talk nicely.

If anyone thinks that her way of doing things are wrong, tell her nicely, there is no need for verbal abuses or personal attacks

Do not say, 'Oh, we are just giving her a taste of her own medicine.'
That is not an excuse, not even near to qualify for a reason. If one think she's that bad, doing it the same back to her does not make anyone any better.

Rubbing salt into one's wound is already bad enough.

Saying kudos to the hacker? You people are seriously SICK IN THE MIND.

HACKING IS SIMPLY WORNG.
It ain't a crime for nothing.
There are ABSOLUTELY NO REASONS to condone hacking.

I shall not even start on how much effort Yanyan has put into her blog.
Her blog, her writing is her career.
3000 over emails from her friends, readers and business counterparts.

ALL GONE.

And you wanna give the culprit a hug?

What goes around, comes around. (Not turn around. Please.)

Very true.

All of us friends, are helping Yanyan in one way or another, to get back what she lost, and to find ways to nab the culprit.
Friends who gave her a call, first thing they found out what happened, to offer help; friends who jumped out of bed, logged on the Net once they saw my SMSes, even though one fell asleep before she got connected; friends who asked others for help when Yanyan did not even request any of them.

Oh, did I mention that she got her ENTIRE blog back?
Ohoh, did I mention that it was help offered personally from one of Google Inc's employees?

What goes around, definitely comes around.

Karma, I hear?
If there is really such thing...
I'm cursing those who left those hurtful comments on Yanyan's blog in regards to this issue, to LAO SAI for 3 days 3 nights.
Even if it means getting bad karma for myself. I'll have diarrhoea with these people if that is what it takes for the curse to work.

A Letter from Yanyan...

Dear readers of xiaxue.blogspot.com,

Yes, indeed, my blog has been hacked. I understand some of you might be sending emails to me right now, alerting me, and the thought warms my heart (which is very startlingly cold right now mind you).

Unfortunately, the hacker is quite clever. He also managed to guess the password to my gmail account. My 3,000 emails, some of which very important business contacts, are all gone.

*snap!* Gone.

The last time I saw my account, I saw two new emails, and these were the only two. I thought Gmail cocked up on me. I laughed, refreshed, and hey, I got logged out! To my horror I couldn't log in anymore. Can you imagine the amount of time he or she took to delete everything?

Checking blogger.... GONE TOO!

How wonderful. A total of 12 or so blogs, all painstakingly done up, all gone. The media center, the FAQs, the photolog, the Hate site. My hard work of 3 years, gone.

Vanished into thin air now! How very cruel this person is. I wonder what made him or her do this.

I remember I once told Adrian, "You know what is my greatest fear?" "What?" he mumbled (not because he wanted to mumble but because he only grunts and mumbles).

It was that someone would hack into my blogger account.

Adrian laughed and said, "Then did you save all your blog files?"

I told him no. He scolded me and said, "Then you better go and save them now!"

And I did! The latest, however, was the May archives. So if you do have ways to get back the June and July archives, or you saved them even, do tell me! I never thought I would ever be thanking this person, but... xialanbin.blogspot.com did put in some work in copying my files afterall. The URL for my archives are there.

It will be hard work doing up all the old blog entries again. It will take a lot of time and sweat, but I can do it.Because being Xiaxue means nothing can get me down, ever. Especially when so many of you are with me. Thank you Shuyin, for waking up at 430am to help me.

I started out with nothing, and I can do it all over again. I will stop those bloody tears right this moment.

Help me spread the word. Help me put this message on your blog. Do not email me at xiaxue@gmail.com from now until I get back my account. If you want a word, please email me at wendycheng@gmail.com.

Thank you.

The real Wendy[Because this email can be authenticated by my friends Shuyin, Wanyi, Mrbrown, Mr Miyagi and Kenny Sia.]

恐怖?

(I wrote this last week and decided to post it anyway. Pardon me for the un-timeliness)

世界乱了。
早已经乱了。

美国911事件之后,便相继发生了一连串的恐怖活动。 最近一次,便是发生在伦敦的爆炸案。

这些恐怖份子到底想干什么?

告诉大家他们的存在吗?
不需要了吧。

向对手与目标示威?
没这个必要了,不是吗?

到世界各地放置炸药,引起爆炸自杀式攻击,导致无辜人民丧命,搞到处处人心惶惶......
恭喜老爷,贺喜夫人呀! 你们办到了!
然后呢?

拜托!
炸伦敦?
反正炸哪儿都会有人丧生,干嘛偏偏选择伦敦搞破坏?
是的, 几起爆炸案下来,市容受损、满目疮痍那又如何?
获选为2012年奥林匹克运动会的举办国,伦敦将会有一大笔金额用来为奥运会做准备。其中包括整修、建设竞赛场地、美化市容等等。

为什么不等至一切准备都完工为止再攻击?
现在有些多此一举,不会吗?

各位恐怖老爷、夫人,恕小女子直言。虽然我不完全理解你们的目的何在,但是可不可以采用一些更新鲜也会奏效的方法呢?

在你们大费周张之后,地球照样转;马照跑、舞照跳;我照旧吃、喝、拉、撒、睡。
或许...找出可让世界上贫穷困苦的人不再挨饿、受冻,不须露宿街头之类的良方;我会感激不尽的。

1, 2, 3

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a good book.
I shall not say it's my favorite, 'cos my favorite character died.
Not to forget when I read one of those lovey-dovey scenes, I flinched.
(I editted this part 'coz there was a spoiler and mongchacha wanna slap me. So ya..to save my big face from getting any bigger...)

DIED! DEAD! GONE!

Can you believe it?
Why did Rowling wanna make the whole world sad?
When I finished it on Sunday, I was so down and yet I couldn't find anyone to share my sorrow - Yanyan had not finish it, Gigiwongwanyi had not even collect her book.
After crying buckets through 2 chapters, I moped around the house.
Seeing no point in everything I do or have to do.

SJB (shen jing bing)ah! FICTION CHARACTER LEH!!
How amazing that a made-up person could grow on me like that.
Well done Rowling, WELL DONE.

I shall believe that he's coming back.

***

A few days back, I sent a message to a girl via Friendster.

She was an ex-girlfriend of a friend.

Well, she took a picture from Yanyan's blog, posted as one of the pictures in her account and I happened to see them.

As most of you will know, Yanyan has a habit of labelling her pics with a watermark.
This particular person posted the photo with the watermark. But after a while, she reposted it with watermark cropped away.

So I wrote something along the lines of 'We have absolutely no qualms about the photo being taken, but it will be appreciated if the watermark remained. Plus a 'hope to hear from you soon'.'

Yanyan thought it was very funny to hear me so being polite.
HEY! WO SHI LIANG HAO SHI MIN, HAO BU HAO?
YI BA GEI NI SI!

Anyway, she took down the picture but I've got no reply from her.

My point is, ok la, I know I'm very bo liao to be bothered by this kind of stuff, but if it was anyone of you, will you reply?

Maybe the girl is busy or what, I don't know. I just wanna find out is it me, who 'jia ba bo sai bang' , literally (constipation sucks), or it is only natural for someone to reply.

Even a 'Noted' will do.

***

I have a friend who is a lesbian.

I have nothing against homosexuality, but a rather appalling thought crossed my mind yesterday while reading her blog.

She calls her partner 'baby boy' and refers to her (erm, him? Very confusing) as her 'boyfriend'. She/He looks rather cute, I must say.

While I was happily looking at their photos, I thought:

'Baby boy' has menses.
'Boyfriend' wears sanitary napkins.
Menstrual blood on sanitary napkin.
Menstrual cramps.

Attached girls always complain to their boyfriends when they have to go through the monthly ordeal. You know, sa jiao.

So, when the 'boyfriends' suffer from these cramps, do they complain or discuss with their girlfriends?
Wouldn't it be quite 'un-macho'?

I don't know leh. Quite clueless about how homosexual couples function.
The my-boyfriend-has-menses is a very 'eeky' thought to me.

Ciao!

I know...

I know I have many, many flaws.

From some feedback I have gotten from this blog...


1) I know I have a very bad sense of humour.

Maybe the problem lies in my linguistic skills, thus I shall not try to joke using words anymore.

Let the pictures speak the thousand words.

I'm going to make stupid faces instead.





Funny?

I'm trying, really.



2) I know I look unkempt.



Yanyan says everyone looks unkempt when they have black, permed hair. Thus, I should die, I mean dye my hair.

But..but..I like my hair permed because previously it's so fine that it looks limp. I don't want to dye it either. I waited so long for it to be this length entirely in its natural colour...

How about if I cover my face?



Better?



3) I know my breasts, or lack thereof, are very unbearable to look at.

I couldn't help it cos I really ran out of toilet paper and am too poor to replenish them.



Out of desperation, I've decided to go for surgery.

Before



Flat like an airport runway.

So, I went to seek help at the infamous CHENGYANYANPHOTOSHOP COSMETIC SURGERY CLINIC.

After



WAH SEH!! BO BA!!!

Now my nenes are bigger then Wanyi's!



Teeheehee!

Lalalalalala

BOM!(Leaned forward too much and toppled over due to the too heavy front)
