Links Clean up


I have just cleaned up my links. Many of the links were what I used to read every day and now most of them are either inactive or block. The world is changing so fast. I used to remember the times where blogging is part and parcel of many people’s life. Now things have changed. It is mostly Instagram. I still prefer to read and people’s thought and life than just pictures but well, just have to get on with life.

Dreams


I just remembered that I have this blog which I have been blogging since 2006? Wow, this is like a cool 13 years ago. I am not sure how many more years will this still be around. I don’t think that I will be writing here often, but I do come back regularly to read through what I wrote over the years. It feels good to have some flashback of what I went through during those times.

And one thing that I did regularly was to have a dream list. Most of the things that I write down, I actually got them, or it does not matter anymore to me. So I thought it will be interesting to list down the things that I want. I have actually grown a lot over the years, and material things do not actually matter to me as much as before. But still, it will be fun to have a wish list. Who knows, I will have them.

Movies of the Month


Dallas Buyers Club

I caught this film with my girlfriend, last month. She wanted to watch it after seeing the thriller.
The film was made with only 5 million dollars and it the best actor and supporting actor for the 86th Academy award.
It also won the Academy award for Best Makeup with a budget of only $250. What! Seriously? This is like smack down to the bigger budget movies.
I would say I enjoyed this movie a lot. I love biography movies and stories and this is no exception. The cast of the movie did a really good job.

 

 

Samsung S3 Android 4.3 update


Finally an update from Samsung for the Android OS but it’s still not 4.4 kit kat yet! The update is only to Jelly Bean 4.3. But overall I am very happy with the latest update. The phone seems much fluid now and the new design looks pretty nice.

List of mobile applications that I use daily


I have been using a Samsung S3 for almost two years. Even though there are some aspect of the phone that I don’t like ( short battery life and no LTE! ), it actually serves me well for the past two years. Here are some of the application that I really like it a lot and use it daily.

Any.do

After trying out many to-do apps, I stumble at Any.Do. This is by far the best to-do apps I have ever tried. I like its clean interface and its user-friendliness. What’s more, it’s free!

Any.do Cal

Also made by the same developer as Any.Do. I was prompted to download Any.do Cal in Any.do app.  Having a good impression of Any.Do app, I decided to download it. Usually, I will dismiss any in-app request for external download. Once again Any.Do Cal surprise me with it’s clean and user-friendly calendar? Even though Google did a good job with its calendar application, this is actually much better!

Google Keep

This is the best note-taking app ever. After switching from iPhone to Android, I tried many apps that do note-taking and none of them beat the note app from iPhone. That is until I discuss Google Keep. And what makes it even better is that it is synchronised with my Nexus 7 and any web browser.  It even has a version at the chrome store.

Hacker News

This is where I get my daily dose of technology information. It is filled with many interesting and informative articles. It’s supported by a strong community of people who are interested in technology and how technology affects the world and people around us. What’s even better is that it does not consume lots of data, which is great as I only have 2gb of internet data every month.

Honourable mention
Instagram, 9Gag, Facebook, all these are great applications but they take up far too much data. I enjoyed Instagram a lot but browsing around 15-20 post consuming almost 10mb of data. I hope Instagram can improve on this aspect.

whatsapp. SMS with a no worries of busting your SMS count and you can send pictures and have a group chat. Makes group discussion so much easier.

New Monitor


I bought a new monitor! Dell s2340L for only $200 Singapore dollars. Productivity should increase by 200%! I always wanted to have a monitor because working on my laptop screen is painfully and slow downs productivity.
