Xiaomi Unveils the New Mi 9T at Equatorial Plaza, Kuala Lumpur

Ever heard of the phrase, “Do one thing every day that scares you?” What about this? “Do something every day that is hard until it’s not?” This justifies and explains my day today. Usually, it is Mr Geeker who attends new phone launches and other miscellaneous media events but today, I stood chest out and…

The Tragic Passing of My Favourite Fitness Tracker

I’m not much of a fitness freak but I do try to be on my feet more often and squeeze in some exercise while I’m at it. So far, I’ve done mostly swimming in the pool at my condo and the occasional jog around our neighbourhood football stadium. With the amount of time spent working…

7 Fitness Wearables That Won’t Dent Your Bank Account.

So the new year has begun and how many of us actually have added fitness goals to our list of New Year resolutions? How many of us have actually stuck to our guns and started doing various physical activities to keep ourselves fit? Let’s not mock those who have begun or who are already in…

Killing Me Softly with Soft Serve Ice Cream.

When I think of soft serve, immediately McDonald’s comes to mind. Chocolate and plain vanilla. Were they the first to serve this? There are many independent start-ups and hipster cafes these days selling soft serve ice cream and touting them to be the best. But these delectable dairy treats cost a limb (at least RM10.00…

Photography: Monochrome and Me.

Photography has never been a hobby that I would associate myself with while growing up. In fact, I never thought I would one day be addicted to it. My family used to travel a lot and those were the times when we’d use the camera most. We shared a Kodak film camera, though the time…

My Lazy Sunday Musings: Moleskine Cafe, Milan.

What I would give to book a flight to Milan just to visit the Moleskine Cafe! I rarely blog much about it but I’m actually a huge fan of notebooks and stationery, particularly notebooks by Moleskine and stationery brands like Faber-Castell, Buncho and Staedtler. And when I found out about the Moleskine Cafe in Milan,…

Food for Thought: Managing Expectations.

Weekends have always been our favourite time of the week, especially if you have a busy work week and all you want to have is some downtime. Weekends are also our favourite time of the week to sleep in and wake up only in time for lunch. Most of the time, we miss the proper lunch…

A Little Dessert Will Go A Long Way.

People tend to think of the correlation between health and desserts as being negative. That desserts can be destructive to your health and diet. Come to think of it, perhaps only our parents would think and say that, right? We were all brought up with the idea that desserts are bad for you. Too much…

Tech Spec: Samsung NX Mini.

. Today, I’d like to introduce the newest addition to my family — the Samsung NX Mini. Giving Up At some point in my life, I gave up photography after enduring a rough few years trying to break into the scene. I stupidly did a service for a potential client, only to have the client…

Must Be Weird to be Famous.

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. Famous brands doing weird things just to see what’s it like on the other side. I’m sure you have heard of Michelin restaurant ratings and probably read the Guinness World Book of Records. But I’m not sure if either of us would eat Colgate’s kitchen entrees or wear Bic…

Because Sushi, Because Sashimi.

Different people have different ways of dealing with stress. Some people go to bed. Others indulge in a little retail therapy (though, the money spent is hardly ever ‘little’). Some bury their noses in their favourite books (I do that too). Others will bury their faces in exclusive facial spa sessions. I used to read…

The Dell from Hell.

When I enrolled in college, my first laptop was a Dell. And it was Hell. After a year, the laptop began to show signs of wear and tear, and the battery life started draining by the chunks on a regular basis. And I only used it for college assignments and basic web surfing. I rarely…

Welcome Back, Friday!

Wow. Aren’t you glad it’s Friday already? Where have you been? We have been looking for you all week since Monday! Welcome back, Friday, and you know what? Can you please stay a little longer this time? Thanks. We could certainly do with a longer weekend. Anyway… To reboot (or here’s a recap of) my…

Drive Your Decisions Carefully.

Do you often wonder what your choices would be as you grow older? What happens if you remained single for the rest of your life? Will you be able to find a Prince Charming to sweep you off your feet? Will you have that foot-popping kiss like Princess Mia in The Princess Diaries? Will you…

Food Review: Big Bob Burgers and Coffee.

Want to start a revolution? Here, have a burger. Not just any burger. Have a Big Bob’s burger! Because it’s so big, one is enough. No, seriously. Just ask my husband. He had one and he was as satisfied as King Midas and his golden touch. I think we’ve mentioned ‘burger’ and one too many…

EPL 2015: Leicester City vs Arsenal.

Can we say that Arsenal are back to their winning ways after clocking another victory after their mid week win against Spurs in the Capital One Cup? Can we base on just two victories and both in different competitions that Arsenal are back to their usual playing selves? Because the 5-2 victory over Leicester City…

Coming Back For More.

It’s all about customer satisfaction, customer loyalty and repeat customers. Many companies fail to wake up to reality and learn the positive correlation among all three. Satisfy a customer and you will earn his or her loyalty, and in turn, that customer will come back for seconds, and thirds, and very soon, you will have…

Time to Converse.

For many years since learning of its existence in Malaysia, I’ve tried (and failed on many attempts) to convince my mum that Converse is wearable by both men and women. To my mum, the design and colours look very much ‘male’ (although I’m not so sure how she got to that conclusion, though, mothers being…
