Getting To Know My Darling Isabellafone


Well after spending more than eight hours straight with my new mate the Iphone 3GS and falling in love with her personalization, I decide to name her Isabellaphone!  Isa for short.

Well first of all it took me almost  4hours++ just to reorganise the mp3 files on ITunes,  because all the nicely organised folders I had while using my Creative Mp3 player was merged into one big mess or should I say a mass orgy of songs!  Setting up playlists for them is a chore….unless I am missing an easier way??? Hmmm..

Then it was time to try out all the existing pre-packaged apps and functions, and it was relatively easy to do, though there are quite a few neat tips and tricks like taking a screenshot is not included in the manual.  Thanks Josh for sharing that piece with me….basically just press ‘home’ and the ‘sleep/wake’ button simultaneously.  Then there is copying and pasting of a block of text tip and so on and so forth.

Next it was time to search for some neat applications…..but before I searched, I was wondering why I had very little response when it came to recommendations.  The only conclusion I can think of is that apart from folks being too busy to respond or that few actually follow my blog regularly : D IS…that a lot depends on the individual’s taste, work and play preferences and desired tools etc.  Anyhow here are the apps that I have come to love for most and use….And DO… Please Share your own app experience with me when you have the time…..CHEERS

Tulang Craving Satisfied Once Again!

Tulang Merah

Finally managed to get hold of some delicious Tulang Merah aka Bone Marrow aka Bone Steak from Woodgrove.  I had been craving it for over a month now but couldn’t find a place nearby where it is still being sold, so that I could buy myself a packet for home.  It had been more than two years since I last dived into it!  Besides this dish in my opinion, is best eaten twice a year only due to the high cholesterol content.

And as to why I’d rather buy a packet home instead of eating it at the food stall?  Well this is certainly not a dish I would savor in public! Why? Because it gets very MESSY!

To truly enjoy it, you’ll need both hands to gnaw at the tender meaty bits around the bone, then there is the sucking and knocking of the bone so that the rich, creamy marrow can slide out nicely either unto the spoon OR you could take a direct hit into the mouth.  Some would advise using a straw to suck out the marrow, but for me it is like eating chicken wings with a knife and fork! You just don’t do it if you want to truly enjoy the wing!  Besides sucking out the marrow using a straw looks disgustingly like liposuction!

Anyhow here are some things you should avoid if you want to enjoy this dish….

  • Don’t ever wear white! Unless you want a red on white polka dot suit.
  • Don’t invite anyone to join you unless they too are very much into this dish. Because their disapproving, disgusted looks might put you off.
  • Don’t be afraid to suck, lick and tear at it. That is why it is best to eat it at home!

Now here are some things you might want to do again to enjoy this dish….

  • Keep lots of tissue paper or paper towels at hand.
  • Place the dish over some old newspapers.
  • Coat your hands with margarine just before eating. (ignore this is if you are fine with your hands being stained red for a more than 24 hours)

Found a Malay recipe for this dish that looks good though I very much doubt if I’d bother cooking it for myself.  So if you do try it, let me know how it turns out okay? Click HERE.

Time For A Tiger? Check Out Your Happy Hour Watch!


Movement: Japanese quartz movement AL55b. Case: Alloy case in WCS plating in silver color with stainless steel back case & patented Happy Hour™ buckle. Band: Wide perforated black leather.

The watch looks sleek enough with a nice looking buckle and comes with cool looking holey strap.  And this below is an added bonus!

Bottle Cap Opener!

But my question for the makers of this watch is….

  1. What if Happy Hour is not at 1700hrs (5PM) is a certain State or Country?
  2. Do you drink in a Bar, Pub or Nightclub where they don’t remove the cap for you?
  3. Or is this watch for Happy Hour at Home? 😆

Anyhow here is the story behind the watch….by Tyler Alexander I believe….

Happy Hour™ was started in 2007 when I was traveling on a long road trip to the East Coast. I was wondering “what on Earth could make it easier to have a cold beer?” (Yes, it had been a long trip). I looked at my watch and my mind started going. Countless 12 packs later, hours of design & research and many meetings with drinkers, lawyers and friends, I had come up with a product unlike any other.

Happy Hour™ is built for those who want to have a little fun opening their beverage with a very stylized watch. The patented buckle allows you to pop-open your favorite beverage with nothing more than a flick of the wrist—and without taking off your watch.
