  • Shaves2u

    When I watched Dollar Shave Club‘s first advertisement, I thought that apart from the cool concept they had on the ad, they also have a cool concept on their product – subscription based shaving products. I wished there’s something like that in Malaysia. Little did I know my wish has been made true several years […]

  • Samsung A5 (2016) – Owner's review

    It has been a couple of months now, and I think it’s enough time for me to go for an owner’s review. While the initial review has already been published, this review is meant to view the phone from an owner’s perspective. What is it? The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is a premium mid-range phone, […]

  • I Upgraded My Phone From A Flagship Note 3 to A Mid Range A5

    I’ve been using my Samsung Note 3 for close to 2 years now. And I have been using Samsung phones since the Samsung Jet. Other than Apple products, it’s hard to get phones with screens and cameras as good as Samsung’s. So logically, when I’m in the market for a new phone early this year, […]

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens Spoiler Review

    To date, I’ve watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens (TFA) twice. And in both screenings, I was hooked to the movie. So that’s a good sign. After the first screening, I mentioned in my Facebook post that while flawed, TFA is a good movie, with good characters, good story, and rarest of all, good pacing. It’s […]

  • What to do if you forgot your infant's Birth Certificate prior to a flight

    I’m planning to bring my whole family back from Kedah via flight, so the kids can experience flight for the first time. Tickets have been bought. Transportations have been arranged and bags have been prepared. But then I found out my youngest daughter’s birth certificate was at my home in Selangor. I was supposed to […]

  • Beowulf

    Haritu ada terbaca tentang “Pembunuh sebenar Dracula”, yang menceritakan bahawa tentera Turki yang telah mengalahkan Vlad the Impaler, diktator yang dikatakan menjadi sumber inspirasi karakter Dracula (setelah Bram Stoker mati, anaknya Irving Stoker telah menafikan kaitan ini). Secara teknikalnya, Dracula yang kita kenal sekarang tidak sama seperti Vlad, setelah imej dan karakternya diubah oleh Stoker. […]

  • My Beef With SmartWatches

    What’s my beef with Smartwatches? Samsung + Tizen:PRO – Amoled makes sense in saving battery (use lots of black in watchface) and using it during the night. lots of sensors and camera that surprisingly very usable in a pinch. CONS – but the integration with other apps (other than Samsung’s) are so-so at best, since […]

  • Smartwatches in IFA 2014

After the initial announcement of Moto 360, Gear Live and G Watch during Android Wear launch, Asus Zenwatch, LG G Watch R, Sony SmartWatch 3 and Samsung Gear S was launched. Apart from Gear S, The other are all running on Android […]

  • Samsung Gear 2 – Owner's Review

    Samsung Gear 2 I’ve always been interested in a device that let’s me interact with the phone, or at least notify me about the phone, without the need for me to actively pull out the phone from my pocket. Back then, there was the bluetooth watch, which shows who’s texting and who’s calling. Some can […]

  • Thoughts on iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C

    I’ve been scouring the net this morning for all new things Apple, since my daughter decided I need to be beside her until she sleeps last night. Overall, Apple did many things right, as always, but there are some things Apple seems to slip behind expectations. Basically, there’s almost nothing that was launched yesterday, we […]
