Back from Trip - Eat Eat Eat week



Translated Burmese Post
[Here] <-ျမန္မာလို ဖတ္ရန္။



Blogging again. I'm already back from trip since Saturday. If I neglect the fact that test was crappy, it was a virtually decent trip. Pretty pleasant town, nice weather and good food. Photos will be online in no time. Yes, I have a craze in travelling. Alone or group or whatever trip quenchs my thirst of travelling. Of course, it never comes cheap and this trip made my pocket quite slim. However, if you live in Singapore, a city filled with tons of stress everyday, (it's the only thing you can grab free here!), I'd really endorse the habit of travelling. Anyway, enough craps, photos are under processing and well I am busy studying again! Tsk tsk, fun time lasted only for two days.

Oh, by the way, given the point that Airy Macbookie is darn expensive, my friends are still cashing on it. What kind of world we are living in! Cashey dudes don't care whether Airy Macbookie's performance is crap or else. So Apple, Thinnovation really works? We'll see more.




Oh, one more thing... These days are filled with Lunches and Dinners too! I do love to crave for great food too! Last week, it was a tremendous lunch from my manager at Szechuan Court. Chinese delicacies and its grand outlook made me think to go back again. And coming Thursday, it is at Nobel House. Is it Chinese food again? I donno. But whatever it is, it looks pretty awesome!

Enough bragging and showing off =P Enjoy whatever you eat & wherever you fly .., peeps!

There's something in the Air, is there?


Translated Burmese Post
[Here] <-ျမန္မာလို ဖတ္ရန္။

Back into business. Refrained from blogging for a few days. At the moment, I feel darn stressed and blogging seems to be a good relaxation. First things first, Gunners were held by Blues at home. I am awed by this result. They played sublime passing and slick football for what? As long as the guys can't lift a good punt into back of the net, we are not winning anything. Terrible corners and awful way wide shots. Hope Mr.Beckham could teach them how to whip in a proper cross into the box.



Oh today is 14th! Tomorrow will be our long awaiting Macworld Event =D This year's slogan is "There's something in the Air" and it did raise several question marks on the pundits' heads. Speculations are flying around such that Apple would release new tiny slim light macbooks called Macbook Air, takes initiative in WiMax world, new gadgets which can be charged via wireless induction. Plus, some even suggest that they would announce something regarding with Wireless Frequency Bid by Federal. These are pretty enticing quotes and we'll see what will happen soon.

And I'm gonna aggregate an RSS feed for all my Burmese readers in no time. Until that time, please bear with this ... :P

Open House First Day - Good



Translated Burmese Post
[Here] <-ျမန္မာလို ဖတ္ရန္။


Open House First Day ended in a good shape. We did answer several queries from students, lecturers, parents and some professionals. We are indeed enthralled by devoted enthusiasm from audience. Tomorrow will be more. I believe my friends out there in Spinnovex are also enjoying their time. So far so sweet. (we ate too many candies today though). Expecting better tomorrow, I am now getting back on my busy feat - thinking about some automation methodologies -
for now. Thank you all!

And here are some mac news buzzing around today.




- Net News Wire for Mac

- OS X won Best Operating System of the year from InfoWorld! And Best Notebook Computer of the year is to MacBook Pro.

- Opera Browser wanna snatch some market share from iPhone Safari. Yes, on Jan 15, Opera iPhone will be releasing together with official SDK!

- Parallels Server 3.0 is out and you can run multiple OS X Leopard Servers on a single box.

- Wired Blog has pretty cool untold stories on iPhone - I'll be translating them to full review in Burmese (not so soon .. )

- iTunes Rentals are rolling out with full blown support of Holy-woot labels such as Paramount, Disney ...

- Oh crap, did I mention that MacHeist2 was out few days ago? Go for it guys, it's only $49 for $300+ worth of bundle.

Mac Pro updates to please our boredom


Translated Burmese Post
[Here] <-ျမန္မာလို ဖတ္ရန္။

I know people out there are getting bored of these iPhone, iPod, and serveral 'i's everyday. When I was writing the yesterday's post, I did aware of that Apple Store is down again. After a few hours, the curtain was lid. And they are Mac Pros! Amazingly gorgeous boxes, but still not in my affordable range. =(





For my fellow friends, who love those gigantic machines, I wrote this post. Enjoy until ...

Bad Weather, CES and a Trip


Translated Burmese Post - [Here] <- ျမန္မာလိုဖတ္ရန္ ဤေနရာတြင္ ႏွိပ္ပါ။



Hellish January. Windy and cold at night. Raining before noons. Sunny after noons. Simultaneous Rain & Sunshine also pop out. What a January in Singapore, eek?

As usual, I'm occupied with various stuff again. Not to mention the tests and craps I grumbled earlier, new burgeoning tasks piled up enough to make me pullulate with stress (or rather worries?). No YouTubing, no Facebooking, no P2P-Tv-ing or no Gaming for a week. Paused some fun stuff a while to accomodate more important craps. I did extend Passport, apply a Visa yesterday. Yes - I'm travelling next week! These days, superfluous tasks just come out of nowhere :'( Geeze.

A couple of interesting mac news had you missed them.
- New CEO for Apple ! - Avon's Andrea Jung join apple board. What a diverse board they have now! Hope a great Princenton-grad CEO with tremendous marketing skills would bring something .. even better insightful ideas to Apple.

- Macworld is around the corner on Jan 15th. Do keep your nerves alert and follow S-Speeches at MacRumorsLive.com

- New NFL-Flavoured Apple Ad came out with .. you guess .. a referee. Seems the mac-pc war is not into attrition yet. They even need a Ref now! :P



- BW reports show that Steve is not a kid. He is really gonna win deals with big Hollywood busters to bring in afresh large number of titles to iTunes Store. Apple compromised, yet users will(would) love. It's an interesting race to see who will win this super-fragmented video industry!



- Intel launched Penrym. That 45nm chips and fries are echoed several times already in Mac forums and blogs. Yawnnnn.. They released officially in CES, finally.


Mitigating pressure to certain level, I did post this. I couldn't catch up with CES and is not knowing what's going on there. As usual, I believe the show is being bombarded with super cool gadgets. Oh yeah, Adverlets alert! It's down, seriously down for this moment. That's super bad, folks. And btw, just fyi, I'm also following Obama Campaign. :)

Tests, Musikr and Work



The good, the bad and the ugly. What a blended day of new year! Yesterday was a decent turning point entering a new year. Obviously, it's really great to see that everybody is cherishing. Though, I myself was pretty tired and stayed home alone (ssssh! this is not Home Alone 5) engaging with what I was supposed to be doing: Tests, Musikr and Work.

Yes. Sounds a bit funny, but can't go out anywhere on that day, anyway. =( I was in a sleepy slight bad shape.

1. Tests! - Yeah, I am taking couple of standardized tests in January. Buddha bless me =X.

2. Musikr - That's my final year project. Definitely, I'm really proud of what we have done and what the team have surpassed! It's so enticing to see the rewards now. Yeap, we are gonna showcase in SP Open House; I'll be at SMIT together with TZO! Do stop by had your calendars are vacant. Plus, there is a sniffing news to showcase in other events, too. Whatever first, it will always be tremendous, I believe.

3. Work - Nothing much, yet still scratching here and there in scripts... duhh.

* Musikr is an interactive music billboard system that utilizes the SolidDrive UBIQ Window (Multi-gesture touch panel) from IM3 Asia. It's made up of an interactive music billboard (flash-based) as its frontend, a content management system (asp-ajax-based) as its backend, and a slick middleman called XML layer. The system can be brought into practice in various industries, such as hospitality, tourism, music retails. Imagine your nearest HMV has this cool interface, playing songs on a multi-touch screen. Bet, you will wanna touch that little creature out there - Musikr.


Wherever you are, enjoy your days. But Holiday spree seems ended, folks! =D
Until Chinese New Year ...
