Iphone vs Nokia Lumia?

So the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were revealed this week.

And of course, as an Apple fan or rather an iPhone lover, I have my own opinion on this.

In the past, I would have just been stare at the latest iPhone with complete awe and desire~~!

But not this time. (Not that I no longer stare with complete awe and desire but it's less now.)


Because my Nokia Lumia 520 has been really good to me.
Yes, it's a cheap phone.
But the windows 8.1 update has made it so much more beautiful.

Yes, I realized that when it comes to phones, it's aesthetics that I care about.
Yes, it's the beauty of the phone.

That is the reason why I love the iPhone so much. It's because it is so beautiful and pristine. I find it's beauty and elegance unprecedented. 

And recently, the windows 8.1 managed to give me the beauty and elegance I want from a phone.
I find my Nokia Lumia 520 so beautiful now.
And I love both the software and hardware.
The thing about Nokia Lumia 520 is that the hardware is already beautiful.
And now, with the windows 8.1 update, the software is now beautiful too.

It doesn't annoy me that the app market for windows is much smaller than android and apple.
Because personally, I have all the apps that I already need. 
So I am good.

Anyhow, what do I think about the iPhone 6?
Well, it's beautiful, like usual.
But the hardware sort of reminds me of the Nokia Lumia 630. Therefore, I am not really amazed.

However, just as I was about to write off the iPhone 6 as no big deal, it has one feature that I really like.

Yup. That thing that calculates your exercise or walking automatically and even the elevation level.
I really like this feature.
Honestly, this one feature that Apple has that no other phone ever have.
I wonder why though.

I know android has a lot of apps out there that can calculate your exercise or walking thing. 
But we all know that most of it doesn't work.
Plus, it won't feel as good as an in built feature.

I know that this is just one feature.
But this is a very important feature to me.
Thus, increasing my desire and love for iPhone by bucketloads. 

When it comes to phone, I don't care about alot of things except for the things that I want or I am looking for.

So in the end, the iPhone 6 still has some appeal to me but it was not as much as it used to be.

And right now, I personally feel that Nokia (or rather Microsoft) might be a big contender in the phone industry soon. 


Just like Apple, they make the hardware and software. And honestly, I think that is what makes a phone great.
A beautiful hardware that comes with a smooth and seamless software.

And with the windows 8.1 update, Windows is showing that a lot of potential. So yea. Beware, Apple.

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Design Thinking and Steve Jobs

This is going to be a long post and I apologize. 

Anyway my department meeting yesterday talked about design thinking and it only reminded me of Steve Jobs.

I have always loved Apple and Steve Jobs. I know Steve Jobs wasn't the greatest guy ever. He could have been nicer and etc. But this is not about that. This is about his vision, his beliefs and philosophy. I never quite realised how much I believed in Steve Jobs philosophy until I sat down and thought about it. 

I admired Steve Jobs philosophy of design first. I don't know if he was the first guy who made design thinking into a thing. Or if he is the one who popularize that thinking?

Minimalism. Simplicity. Clean. Aesthetics. User friendly. He made sure Apple designs abide by this. And this is what I have always loved about Apple. He made technology sexy, beautiful and cool. 

I never quite realised that I, myself, believed in these values.

But today, as I sat down and think, I realised that, the older I grow, the more I have tu…
