    I got this from one of my egroups, i really think it's worth sharing. i really pray not to get in the situation, but let's just add these tips in our must knows, just in case. :)


    There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

    * The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** is 112.*

    If you find yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. **Try it out.**

    * Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?*

    This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.

    Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

    Editor's Note: *It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!"*

    *Subject: Hidden Battery power*

    Imagine your cell battery is very low , you are expecting an important call and you don't have a charger. Nokia instrument comes with a reserve battery. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.

    *How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?*

    To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:

    * # 0 6 #

    A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.

    You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

    hubby's new hobby
    DH finally got tired of me slacking on creating digital scrapbook layouts and video montages of all our pictures and home videos... so he put matters into his own hands :)
    he's now very much indulged with a new hobby... video editing of our trips and various events in our life. and mind you, he's been doing friends' videos as well, and they like it! :)

    here's one of his works, baby brother's arrival:

    virus attack
    last week, i accidentally downloaded a virus from the links of one of my chatmates. it wasn't very bad, but having no YM for 3 days or so wasn't easy. good thing, i posted the problem to one of my egroups and somebody led me to the link to fix it. and i was able to fix it! :) so, i'm back online in YM... see yah! and oh, sorry if i got you infected.

    alone again ...
    ... naturally.

    last friday, the 29th of september, mom flew out to the u.s. for the much delayed re-entry for her green card validity. we had a tearful moment at the airport. i must admit, i never thought i'd cry that day, but i guess i was wrong. even if mommy was here for less than two months, she's been a great help to me, keeping us company and being FL's playmate. so it's back to normal for us now. still haven't gotten the hang of it again, but we're good! :) FL kept asking "where's lola?" but lola told him before she left that she'll go to america, so he knows, i guess.

    thanks, mommy for being there for me! i hope touring switzerland had been enjoyable for you. looking foward to your return flight on march... this time, we'll go around the neighboring countries. hope it goes thru! :)
