To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

BlackBerry Service Center in Bangkok

It took days for me to find this out, I had a problem with my BBZ10 last week. It just stopped working. I couldn't do anything after as it didn't recognize its usb and couldn't be charge either. And to think, my phone wasn't dropped or even got wet, it just died suddenly. I have read forums about the same problem and seems there wasn't a solution to it as everything just collapsed. With the usb and battery on the fritz, sure nothing can be done. I suspect though that the updates might have something to do with it.

I went to Terminal 21 as I remember there was a BB shop in there near the movie theathers but to my surpise, it was gone. I was glad a very nice man who has a stall next to the area informed me where to get my unit checked. Of course, as long as the phone is still under warranty and was purchased in Thailand. I've also learnt that there's no need for any document warranty as the service center will just scan the unit and find out when the unit was bought. So basically, just go to the authourized service center and bring the unit.

BlackBerry Authorized Service Center under warranty.

The BB authorised center is called SIS, it is located at the fourth floor of Fortune Tower, fronting Central Rama 9. It is accessible by MRT and get off at Rama 9 station. I went there yesterday and they got my unit. I was told I can get it back after a month as the unit will be sent to Malaysia for checking.  That means a month of no phone; however, Fortune Tower is an IT hub, it's easy to get another unit in the area. I got a new one yesterday that I can use in the meantime. To those who have BB problems and is still under warranty, no need to worry, just go to SIS.
