I do see more Android users these days, especially Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (local users). Let see if it’ll change in 2013, with the growth of other platforms.

Thoughts: Recap of 2012

Since it’s the last day of 2012 and hours away from 2013… It’s only fitting that I do a recap of 2012, in my own strange way – the good, bad and normal moments. Let’s start with overall look of 2012… The bad moments: – Unfortunate number of natural disasters, lost of lives and livelihood for many… – Unnecessary amount of political issues, over power, money and other silly stuff… – Interesting increase of issues / hoo-haas for local news, e.g. scandals, social or race issues, deaths, politics and day to day transportation… The normal / expected moments: – Increasing prices for almost everything – Awareness on politics for general public – Usage of social media for almost everything, e.g.…

Random: Recognizing the Pain

Relaxing evening with a little beer and KTV-ing, always help to start a good weekend. And while we might sing our heart, soul and probably lungs out, old memories and pain often surface after being buried under months or years of ‘conveniently forgotten moments’ archive. I would say, it’s not all bad. For it helps one to recognize the pain others are going through, empathize and could come up with a better way to help.

Self: Baking craze for December

Don’t know how exactly and why, we got hit by the baking craze, for last two weekends. Maybe due to festive period or the new table-top oven we got (Toyomi TO-34RC), making us ga-ga over baking and wanting to see if it’ll work well. Couple of successful bakes and a few failed ones. And here are photos of us (bf was the photographer) baking and the end results: 1) First – Betty Crocker Brownies This came out well, just a tad too sweet. 2) Third – Online recipe (from scratch, not pre-mix) for cupcakes The taste was decent, ugly looking cupcakes but still okay (i think). Only problem was not having enough cupcake trays, thus quite a number of them…
