Search what you know

According to my web stats, 63.3% of the folks who came through search engines found this site through the keyword “sic per sg“. True story. Who are you people? This is pure weird. Did you dream of this word or phrase? Did you overhear me on the train? Do you want this domain?

One thing is for sure, you do know what you want.

To those who came looking for Cova @ Paragon review, I know I have disappointed you with my lack luster write-up. Well… enjoy your meal!

Tune to thyself

I cannot get this song out of my head. Most typical of me.

I believe that everyone has a homecity (aka the homescreen where you always return to). It is not necessary the place you grew up in or the town where you’ve worked for most of your adult life. It is the place that you know it is right to reset in.

Many people want to move out of this city. Many people talk down the policies (and politics). Many people question the intentions and doubt the future. I cannot explain why but, in all honesty, I know I want to be here in my final days. This is my New York.

Fraction that DSLR

Those who care would already know about the pros and cons of the Micro Four-Thirds (or affectionately known as M4/3) system. In case you would like to read more, check out this article. Frankly, I only skimmed through the lengthy commentary. I don’t make a good article/book reviewer. If at all, the pictures made me laugh.

The creator of the pictures has since sold/gave away the M4/3. Tsk.

Bliss and Boo of X10

Ok this is why everyone has a love-hate relationship with Sony Ericsson. First they teased with the Andriod 2.1 upgrade for X10 then you hear of news that the release date is delayed. Sounds familiar? Shudders to think that X10 will suffer the same fate as the big sister, X1. Oh well.

Only comfort – the beautiful folks at XDA are already having plenty of fun with cooking Android ROM for X1 (albeit upside down) and 2.1 ROM for those who cannot wait for the official release.

Do you have the proof, Mr H1N1 Vaccine?

I am not an early adopter. I love gadgets, destinations, books, and many other things as much as the fanatics do. However, I also procrastinate. I don’t buy into anything too early. They need to prove themselves first1.

Since the H1N1 outbreak, I have been taking special precautions whenever I travel. Despite the discomfort of surgical masks onboard the flights and the unflattering minty taste of hand sanitizer on my food, I have always refused to be vaccinated. People think I am paranoid. Well, at least I know Areya agrees with me.

Someone is offering a cash reward for anyone who can provide scientific proof that the vaccine does what it claims to do i.e. safe for all and effective in reducing death rate. The rules of validity and reliability of the research work are clearly outlined. In the spirit of supporting human triumph, I shall root for the promoters who are frantically trying to prove to the world. Can you do that in two months?

[Sidetrack] I believe I had caught the H1N1 virus in Beijing, back in October 2009. If you don’t believe me, please ask the Concierge. He can vouch for my pain and suffering from the worst flu I ever had. He was also very pleased when I checked-out of the hotel…

  1. Yes, I am sick this way []
