How To Restore Deleted Google+ Photos

Shit happens. 
Shit happens when you give a non-computer expert blogger (me) who is so messy with her photographs and blog materials (me) that this particular blogger (yes, me again) didn't realise that Google+ & WebPicasa is one and one the same.

GAH, and she (referring to myself) claims to be a blogger since 2009.
GAH.. this kind of blogger should seriously be banished into the caves of Gua Tempurung and live nomadically.

Well, I'm just describing myself, if you happened to be just as blur (or ignorant) as me, fret not. You are not alone. Before that, let me tell you how it happened. I accidentally clicked something at 2am last Saturday. Then the next thing I knew my whole computer images are being "sync" to the Google+. I was so worried shit because I did loads of porno I didn't want to upload my wedding photos online! I want to hold the control on what to share, and what not. Wedding photos are between me and family, so I hold on strongly that these photos do not need to be published online. So I took effort to drain all my energy at 2am to delete ALL (or almost all photos and Google+) and go to sleep.

It was not until just now at 9.30pm, after playing with Bunny that I just wanna blog about something and SHIT! 

That masses of SHIT hit my brain and I remembered the horrible torturous moments of deleting photographs at 2am is ACTUALLY deleting my blog photos as well. Worse of all, I'm not an organized person at all, my photos are labelled and kept everywhere and there's no way to restore my blog back to its glorious days (is there?)

So I mentioned this shittiness to @Tianchad (who still blogs), and he says try to retrieve from TRASH lah. I was sceptical!  

"CAN MEH? You think like korek tong sampah so easy meh? I deleted many days ago!!!"

I would die trying, so I did, and I managed to restore my blog. YEAY!
You see, the good thing about this whole online thingy is that even Trash is kept. It's not like those DBKL Bandaraya trash lorry that comes every 3 days and your sampah is taken. GONE, and life goes on. With just a few clicks of the mouse, my photos are retrieved as the trash is only cleared after 60 days.

PHEW. Thank God that I came online today, rather than next 60 days, right? Then all my years of crapping online, my victorious moments, my climax of everything (Fuiyoh) is all GONE. and I will definitely quit (or I thought I just mentioned that I'm determine to restore my blog back manually just now?) from blogging.

Ok here's the 3 CRITICAL STEPS of restoration of Google+ Photos:-

1. Login, click PHOTOS

Screenshots are blurred to protect those people I stalk online (LOL jk)

 STEP 2: Click BIN
Photos are blurred because these are old photos of me and my friends. I look horrible!
Photos are blurred because these are my precious wedding photos. For personal viewing only. Not for Public Display.

All photos that were being deleted within the 60days period can be restored. Kudos to myself for finding this solution. and Boo to myself for being so silly.

Ah..what a tiring day. I was thinking of blogging about Cameron Highlands or Fluffy's story, but it's a tiring journey of restoration tonight. I shall pause my humble intentions and play it some other day instead.

Good night everybody!

CDM25 And The Stupidity Continues

CDM25 , white Peugeot 208 probably has become Malaysia's most famous car plate number. The video, which began to circulate on 15th July 2014, has become so viral beyond our imagination. A minor accident happened in UTC Kuantan, and Uncle Sim (the chinese man in red) accidentally scratched a white Peugeot 208. The lady driver of the car, was fuming with rage that she took her steering lock and yell in anger. In summary, what she did was:-

1) Yelling at the old man, scolding him stupid.
2) Took out the steering lock and slam on the old man's car.
3) Demanded RM2,000 from the old man as compensation.
4) Took the old man's car keys.
5) Told passerby that the old man is Chinese and he scratched her car in purpose. 

Well, all of her actions were equally bad, and the racist remark of "dia cina. Saya tahu dia sengaja" (translation: He's Chinese, I know he did it on purpose) was the worst of all. 

Initially, I didn't want to blog about this, because what I had thought and felt in the beginning was clearly stated in Timothy Tiah's blog post about this incident. Why had no one stopped or calm this raging lady during the incident? Why this lady would say out such a racist remark? And how dangerous this world has become that her private details, such as her phone number, her address, her workplace has all been released to the public, in retaliation for her lack of manners. 

Today, I was aghast to find out that Kiki Kamaruddin (the raging lady, owner of white Peugeot 208 CDM25) was being interviewed by Hitz fm, MY fm and Fly fm. Which all encourages the nation to forgive her and she deserves a 2nd chance. 

It's not that I'm being unreasonable, but does these radio station feel its necessary to jump on the publicity of this ugly event? It's a road rage filled with racism that disgusted the people, is it really necessary? Respect and forgiveness is earned, not asked. How dare this Kiki asked us to forgive her, just because Uncle Sim has forgiven her? Whether she has truly repented is another story, because I don't feel any sincerity in her. 

Smiling and all, she seems to be enjoying the limelight! Well, smiling isn't a crime, i know. But the core is, i don't think she should be interviewed. I don't think she deserves to be famous in this way. 

A normal people would not yell at the elderly, bandishing steering locks and damaging other's property. Normal people apologise immediately when they realise they have done something wrong. Normal people have a thing called conscience. Normal people will stay low and allow things to cool down, until people forgets about it.

I'm not the only one being disgusted by the publicity given to this lady. 

So now that she has appear on the radio, I guess there's television interview as well, or maybe her own talkshow or reality show "Keeping Up With Kiki"

The hero of this whole incident is Uncle Sim, and yet he wasn't being highlighted.  He should be respected and admired  for being so calm, and patient with this raging lady. Furthermore, he even forgave her and refused to take legal actions against her. These traits have long extinct in humankind. 

I shall reiterate again, I guess we no longer need to make home-porn video to be famous, just be a racist-road rage and  immediately be famous! (Sarcasm intended)
