Samsung SMART TV on Angry Birds App

8 Oct

Who have thought that you can now try to play Angry Birds on TV with your bare hands? It’s the new Samsung SMART TV that is now available for all ages to experience the games. With the features using the camera from the SMART TV, it can detect the your hand and to respond from the movement of your hand while playing the game.

For instance, once the sensor detected your hand movement in front of the new Samsung SMART TV and turn your hand into a fist, it will response as if you click a mouse to choose a feature on the screen. It sounds quite confusing here for some.  With the Motion Control Feature, Samsung has achieved to be the market leader when comes to the audio-visual feature. Now everyone can enjoy this as a family activities and to get hands on  the game with the Motion Control from the Smart TV. Who need karaoke for family gathering if SMART TV could cater all generations via Angry Birds! Aren’t they cute when they are super angry?

At first I was not really get the hang of it as I’m so used to the touch screen feature on my Samsung Tab. Trust me, it won’t take that long to get used with the Motion Control sensor to play this awesome game. I’m sure most Angry Birds fans would love to get their hands-on experience with Samsung Smart TV. It’s a smart move for Samsung to use Angry Birds as the first game app using Smart TV as it’s one of the most downloaded game application on smartphones.

With the Smart TV feature, it can be a central use for all social networking, informative platform and entertainment for families. All you need is a internet connection and you can use this as good as a computer completed with games for both children and adults. Sound system and the graphics are in both surround and HD quality. It’s really gives users the experience that would give fun yet hands-on feel on the game. What can I say? Meet the world’s FIRST smart TV and the world’s most successful game on smartphones.

I shall end this with a short footage I took from my Samsung Tab 10.1

Advertorial: TIGER BALM NECK & SHOULDER RUB (REGULAR / BOOST)

18 Sep

From being a college student till stepped into the working world, facing computer on daily basis has been part of my life. It’s quite normal for me to spend at least 2 hours in front of computer screen for work or even since student life back in Kuala Lumpur. Most working adults could easily spend at least 5 hours and above sitting down and straining their neck doing their work in front of the desktop. Trust me, there are some points in my life I felt a huge stone pressing my neck and shoulders. The last thing in my mind is a great reliever to ease the pain and strain while rushing to finish my work.

Long hours and hectic schedule among working adults like myself didn’t realize the long term effect of straining the neck and shoulders without taking precautions to ease the tension on these muscles. Without realizing it will become a common discomfort found in most professionals in this city. Chasing the achievements and goals while own health is at risk. What’s the point being successful if constantly having body discomfort along the way.

Getting a massage for instant relief is always my 1st choice. But thanks to my hectic schedule, it’s a challenge to find the most suitable time for me to get one. Not until I was introduced to use Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub from a friend. Honestly?! Tiger Balm? I never thought of it at all till I started to use it 3 days ago. No more small glass bottle and will stuck in my long nails if you think I’m using the old packing for Tiger Balm, if you know what I mean.


Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub comes in 2 different types and a newly packaged with a modern and sleek design that you might think it’s a moisturizer for the face. The 2 variants are the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub with soothing lavender fragrance for a mild neck & shoulder aches while Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Boost has extra strength with lasting relief for over-stressed, tired and stiff neck & shoulders muscles. The scent is refreshing that provides invigorating feeling on the skin after application.


It’s easy and convenient to use as it’s easily fit into my small bag whenever I need it a quick fix to my strained neck. It’s light and non-greasy. It will take around 3-5 minutes to feel the cooling feeling on my skin after applying it. The smell is acceptable as it doesn’t produce strong pungent smell. The fast absorption on the skin is a perfect for me for a Massage-on-the-Go that only needs minutes of my hectic schedule for a quick fix.

I’m glad Tiger Balm, the world renowned and trusted brand came up with innovation quality for relief aches plus a touch of reinvention in the new packaging. This brand may be a century old with a modern innovation and still continues providing high quality product in the market that has a special formulation to reduce tension around the neck & shoulder areas.

BNI Meeting – June 2012

18 Jul

I will be completing my 2nd year membership this coming September 2012 and can’t wait for renewal. While I’m serving term as vice president till September 2012, I’m looking to help the grow the chapter as well to help other members to grow their business as well.

Image

In the month of June 2012, I’ve conducted new member induction this time and it’s a pretty exciting moment for our chapter. By growing the chapter, it helps us to generate more referrals for each other. It’s crucial for all of us to commit by attending the meeting every week plus spending more time outside the meeting by conducting 1-2-1 meeting with members.

Besides our weekly 60 seconds and 1-2-1 meetings with members, 10-minute business showcase is part of the chapter meeting agenda that provide platform for members to present more in-depth business presentation to members and visitors. Members are given 6 weeks in advance to prepare their slides presentations and 8 minutes to present on the day members supposed to present. Another 2 minutes will be reserved for Q & A session. Members who are presenting their 10-minute presentation also required to bring a door gift for that day too.

I’ve presented today for my 10-minute presentation and managed to get a referral for a potential lucrative business. By being specifically presenting what’s your ideal referral, members will give the right one ideal referrals to you eventually. It’s about farming and not hunting. Till next time, been awake since 4.45am! Time to get my sleep, early! Good night.

Weekends at historical city, disappointed! Big time!

18 Jul

We spent most of the time on the road. It was a mistake to plan having a short holiday in Malacca, during weekends when there’s school holidays going on. Gosh! My birthday celebration is, I would say not really a pleasant one this year. Oh well. Blame myself for not checking the calendars first. Motherfu*%@#! My mood was gone after stuck in the 5-hour traffic madness on the street. But again, just get focused on the agenda that night and one of them is to attend our friend’s wedding dinner.

Image

We managed to catch up with each other after we graduated from the Executive Diploma course last year. Everyone is busy with their lives and this is the only way to gather up. Short one yet still a satisfying gathering as all of us have fun at the dinner as we were entertained by MC on stage. While others ber-joget we just talked and laughed, oh yea while screaming as the music getting louder and louder. What???! I can’t hear you! Oh gosh!

Image

We stayed at the Sterling Boutique Hotel and the place is so great! We almost lost our reservation of our room thanks to the fucking jam that almost cost me a room. I can tell you that night 90% of the rooms are fully booked and so does the other rest house and hotels. Thanked God!

We didn’t managed to eat the famous satay celop. This is madness. It seems that tourists really don’t mind to queue for hours to get the food. Well, lucky for a local like myself, I could always opt for next trip. Perhaps, less people in the city during low peak season, i.e. NOT DURING SCHOOL FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

It’s just another year. Maybe better birthday celebration next year. I totally lose interest to celebrate my birthdays these days. Oh well, maybe male strippers and blasting clubbing next year? How about that? I shall put that in my “to-do” list!

Till next time. Perhaps less cranky post.

KK Trip : Part 1 My Home Sweet Home with Loved One

2 Jul

Finally! My guy get to go to my hometown. The Land Below The Wind. From the West to the East. Kota Kinabalu it is. PJ guy would be curious how KK would be like. I really hope he loves the place which in fact he did. Now we are looking forward for another trip down to KK again. I was invited by my old childhood friend and neighbor for his big day. This time I was invited to be the emcee for the wedding ceremony and dinner. We known each other since we were 9 years old. After 21 years of friendship, I’m happy that I could be there for him and his new bride.

After 2 and a half hours flight from KLIA, we reached KKIA with warm welcome from the hotel staff at the arrival hall. After we’ve checked in and collect our rental car, we headed to the beach side located at Tanjung Aru Beach for few photographs and followed by food hunting in the city. Excited and hungry at the same time.

I missed all the food that I loved since childhood. I introduced to my guy the ultimate beef noodle soup and pork noodle soup from Kuo Man, Sunny Garden. Verdict from him, it was so tasty and we tempted to “ta-pau” home. Nah!  That’s not going to work. It’s impossible to bring it all the way back to PJ, right?

Wedding. That’s the next event in this trip. While preparing for the emcee scripts, my guy is the photographer for the day. He took quite many pictures and we are happy to be there to be part of the “jing-bang”!  Bride is so pretty and I’m happy that my friend finally popped the question after 10 years in the relationship. It was his first girlfriend and also childhood sweetheart too. So romantic and it’s a great thing to witness the union of 2 good friends of mine that we hope will last forever.
