Inventing My Own iPad Application for Maxis

Betcha' heard that the iPad has already been released in Malaysia. Since that very day lots of people got their hands on their very own iPad.

But why do people want to own their own iPad? Is it because of the amazing applications within? Is it because of the video functions, web browsing or maybe for music? Well everybody loves apps. Especially when you can experience them hands on right on the iPad.
*Imagines apps on a big touch screen*
There is so many applications to rely on nowadays, but I want to voice out a app that in my opinion will be very useful for us Malaysian users.

Heres my go on the app that I will want to invent to ease Malaysian hearts.
"1M'akan Survival Kit"
Well what is "1M'akan Survival Kit" and what does it do? By looking at the first two initials, you can see very well that 1M means 1 Malaysia. 1Malaysia is the unity of our 3 cultures. Malay, Chinese and Indian. With all three races in unity, we call ourselves Malaysians.
But what this revolutionary app will do will amaze you in many different angles.
"1M'akan Survival Kit" is an app that will aid you in selecting different ingredients for any Malaysian food. Well, all Malaysians love food right?
Through my observation, I can see that even though we enjoy foods of different races, there is still a boundary that blocks us from learning from it. Through this application, we will be able to:

- Discover new Malaysian food (Be it Indian, Chinese or Malay)
- Cook up foods of other races at ease (In a click of a button you will be able to find a recipe)
- Comment, rate and post photos of a certain dish that is your liking
- Amazing Ingredient search function that allows easy finding of ingredients, in the supermarket!
- Identify whether ingredient or food in app is halal or non-halal easily
- Bookmark your favorite dishes and share personal recipes with others
- Detailed showing of nutrition values, such as chinese soups which are beneficial to health
-Calander-ize your month and plan what you want to eat on any occasion

With this application you will never struggle to cook up a dish for your friend ever again, Malaysian style! Look through different Nasi Lemak recipes or even share your own, it will make a definite difference. Ingredients at hand with full detail, your stroll to the nearby supermarket will be way more fun and easier to handle. Even detailed cooking methods will be shown through the application! Don't forgot that it is also highly beneficial for overseas Malaysians that miss their homeland food!

Just look at how lost this woman is in the supermarket whom finds herself confused as she doesn't know what to cook for dinner or for her friends..

But after buying and downloading this wonderful app, watch how one's facial expression turn into joy and stress free!

Below is how the app will roughly look like: (Please zoom into picture if unclear)

[MOVIE] Tron Legacy Review

Most people remember this classic. A disney classic back in 1982. Tron is remaked recently through hollywood means. Looking at only the title, we can think of a few things. Computers, devices, and the future. This movie has quite a few of the elements in it, but still lacks something.
Tron Legacy is actually targeted mainly at Tron fans back then. It was a hit decades ago.
Satisfying CGI needs, TRON is recreated again , now with better graphics.

Now what is TRON anyway? What can you expect when watching this movie?
Expect loads of tech jargons, and more about chips and circuits.
The story is actually about a kid, whom lost his father 15 years ago. His father was a great scientist and therefore created a system to penetrate the computers' system. He called it the grid. The son (Sam) was paged one day which unseemly put him into the grid as well.
He struggles to find his father while facing many different obstacles. Will he and his father find freedom once again? That is what TRON is about.

Up for the review, it didn't hit my expectations. I mean the graphics was oh yeah, but how they tell the story, I think not so good. How they utilize the plot, they should do better. It kind of lost the TRON feel from the 1982 classic, it was quite different but also the same. Its kind of a new concept for those that didn't watch the previous TRON but thats about it. Not to mention the OST in TRON legacy. Awesome choice. If you don't know who are Daft Punk, you're missing something. Daft punk made a difference in this movie. The most memorable parts were the fights and action. However, the story is really dark and you only get to see the sunlight only at one scene. LOL
It might be quite confusing if you didn't catch the original one, but nevertheless with intuition you will understand.

Enter into the Digital undiscovered world to unveil more. TRON.
Overall rating: 7/10

If you read from my previous posts, you would have known on December the Wondergirls are coming back to Malaysia again. But this time, a full length-ed concert! it was held in the Arena of Stars, Genting highlands. Regional wonderfuls came from far abroad just to experience the wonder of the wondergirls! This is their 1st wonder concert which will only be held in Thailand, Malaysia and Hong Kong. Me and some of my friends were lucky enough to get passes.. and enjoyed ourselves! Sadly we weren't allowed to take pictures in the event but there are fancams and pictures all around the internet.This is what we experienced.

WG 001

Fans gathered early in the morning to discuss wondergirls schedules, sell fanpacks and more.
Above is a card that is given to the wondergirls.. spot my name!
WG 002
WG 003

Some other fanmade stuff such as postcards and more.
WG 004

Oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh.
WG 005
WG 006

A huge stage set for the Wondergirls. Surprisingly the place was very packed and also it is small in terms of venue.. that could be a good thing because the distance between the audience and WG will be shorter.
WG 007

The only few shots I took during the concert. This is after their encore 2DT remix and nobody.
WG 010
WG 013
WG 017

WG 021

They performed around 20+ songs and some of them which were solos by each member.
It ended with a blast! There were flames, pyrotechnics and more! Confetti too!
Real fun.
Thats about it for this post. Wondergirls gave the audience the time of their lives. Not to mention the wonderfuls, who can't sleep after the concert due to excitement. Check back for more shots and updates. Official photos soon! It was real awesome!

[CD] Orange Caramel 2nd Mini Album A-ing Full View

Actually I planned on updating after my finals but I guess I just have to.
I have something in mind next month so we will see whats gonna happen then.
Okay back on topic, I was fast enough to order Orange Caramel's latest album-
Orange Caramel The Second Mini Album A-ing. Have you heard their tracks? Well you may find them unique and different but its all a good thing. But what do you mean by fast enough?
Why? Because this is a autographed copy! WIN!
Yeap, I went through pre-ordering the album just to own it. So here it is.. amazingly it arrived fast.

OC 001

Front cover of the album. Even though it was autographed, yesasia gave it a good wrap to ensure freshness within. Its really simple compared to k-pop albums nowadays as it still keeps the classic CD album look. Really basic and clean.

The back of the album shows clearly the tracks hidden within this beautiful album.
Also with their main concept of magic and somehow with a happy and fairy-tale type of look.
OC 002

The best part of the album, THEIR AUTOGRAPHS!!
They consist of 3 members, Raina , Nana and My bias - LIZZY! :P Very cute huh?
OC 003

Also to the left as you can see you will be able to find the CD.
OC2 002

Closeup on the CD. Yeah as I mentioned previously its really simple and not too overdone.
OC 004

Opening the autographed flap reveals more photos and goodies within. One of them being a random paperdoll. And yeah I got Lizzy. How awesome! Behind the flaps you can also find lyrics of the songs and so on. Ka-CHING!

Yet again this album is really simple but the songs within are worth a listen or too.
They are different. BUT TO MY LIKINGS! Thats about it for OC's second mini album.
OC2 003

Oh yeah if you hadn't noticed I created a tumblr account. Whats tumblr?
Tumblr is something you get if you combine twitter and blogger. How cool and simple!
Yeah my tumblr is mainly for my taengoo fandom and spazzing needs.
You can satisfy your lust for my kid leader there. Do check it out if you love taeng!

Whats more is I have alot of things that I have in mind for you guys next month.. Loads of surprises and more so be sure to check back as this Christmas is going to be a fun one!
Till then!

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9300 Internal Review (2)

As you've already seen from the first part of the review, the BlackBerry Curve is a small yet powerful device. But what does it actually do? What are the benefits?
Lets start with the main page shall we?

Okay as you can see the main page is a really simple homepage, simple yet easy to navigate.
You will be able to set your favorite apps right onto your main homepage as it is customizable.
Other than that you can clearly see the time, signal strength, amount of unread messages and more. Yes, its the typical BlackBerry main page.

Here is the main applications on the device. There are a whole lot to choose from, so make sure you download them :) We shall go to the email application.

Although I haven't really used the BlackBerry Email function alot due to some rescrictions, I can say that now you can manage your emails on the go, and it is extremely easy to do so. Just sync the BlackBerry with your email account and thats it!

As for SMS and MMS, its quite a new interface for me as I was shocked when I saw that it is actually like a instant messaging system. Well thats also very easy to use but obviously it will burn down your credit if used too long.

Blackberry Messenger, ah- I bet you guys know how to use this one. This EXCLUSIVE app for BlackBerry is what the blackberry is famous for. This app allows you to chat with other bb users straight on the go. You can even send media files or share pictures among your friends. That is, if they have a Blackberry too.

As for the web browser, its actually not that good because of its slow browsing speed and definitely not one of BlackBerry's strong points.

With app world, you can download your favorite apps anywhere or anytime you want. How awesome is that? There are free and also applications that you may have to pay here so choose wisely.

As for viewing pictures in the curve, its quite fun to do so as the pictures can be viewed smoothly without problems with high resolution.

As for media you can control your playlist easily as there are media controls in the upper body of your curve, which makes it easier to use. But for the sound system/speakers, is not that good.

As for video quality, its amazingly quite good. But for youtube streaming, no.

Sample picture taken from a 2MP camera installed on the BlackBerry curve 9300. What can you expect from a phone camera anyways? But all is good because you can instantly upload them onto your twitter or facebook account! Awesome.

As for the calander feature, its pretty good on the blackberry as you can easily input what to do on what day, keep track of meetings and reminders, and so on.

Not to forget its facebook application where you can easily find your notifications and etc.
You can easily navigate through the features of facebook using this app.

If you're a person that looks to games on a phone then the BlackBerry is not for you cause the games are a real bore and they won't amuse your likings.

Thats about it for my review today and remember to check back for the conclusion post!
