A trip to the kampung

I’ve always enjoyed going back to the kampung ( village ) where life is stripped off all its unnecessities and you get back to basics. Come to think about it , if you are living out the last few good years how would you live it and where ?

My mum and a friend over decades of friendship and they never fail to get excited each time they meet with each other. You can feel the excitement in their voice and also in their eyes.

The place I visited was at Holy Family Residence in Papar , Kota Kinabalu. Its really a nice place with beauty all around it. On a clear day you are able to see Mount Kinabalu.

One great thing about being in the Kampung is that , your groceries grows on trees and its as fresh as it gets without any chemicals or preservatives ?

Heck even the chicken expects you to look for its eggs …

Everyone has their own superheroes … here are mine , as they have always been there in times of need and they always seems to understand you best.

Cheers and have a great day ahead !

A stroke of Netflix Brilliance

I’ve always wanted to experience how real interactive TV would be like and when Netflix announced their first move into interactive TV.. I was really looking forward in getting a taste of this new age of movies.

Bandersnatch

Netflix released Bandersnatch only a few days ago and last night I had time to watch it!

From almost just a few minutes into the movie you are then asked to decide the direction of this movie. From the most simple task of choosing whats for breakfast to crazy decisions of killing someone or chopping them up or hurrying them

Every decision will lead to a different outcome. So don’t be fooled thinking this movie is going to take 1hour 30mins… Its wayyyyy longer as you try your way to get to see multiple endings in different scenarios.

Pictured – Fionn Whitehead

My honest opinion… Netflix really took watching TV to the next level and I’m sure this is just a glimpse of what the future of TV would be like.

What a stroke of Brilliance from Netflix… I wonder whats next. Black Mirror was just the perfect series to start this interactive TV with.

Have you seen it? What do you thinks?

thanks to @penguinpablo for his daily stats ( source link )

What the graphs shows that we have a very vibrant community which consistently use the STEEM blockchain daily. This is mainly due to the fact that STEEM has become a part of a lot of people’s daily activity.

This is purely because there are so many apps which we can use to post to the Steem Blockchain. dTube, dSound, Fundition, Partiko or many others. These apps are commonly used as STEEM is the only blockchain that I’m aware of that has a very diverse community posting in many different ways.

Every single active community is also running their own activity among its members or collaborative efforts to have more users join this vibrant communities.

As you can see over the past 1 week we also have seen many users powering up as price of STEEM is low now and steemians are taking advantage of this to power up more. ( source )

So this is why we are still planning for offline activities in the form of Steem Sharing Bootcamp Penang to introduce new users to STEEM and all the apps which they can use. We also would love to get to know more steemians face to face , this will enable us to answer any questions about STEEM directly. We do understand that this is a slow process however, running offline events are still great to have that very first engagement to help steemians to start their blogging journey.

I’ve already claimed 10 accounts to provide those who does not have an account who came for our offline events to get them started off as soon as possible. I guess many witnesses / projects such as @steemonboarding , @oracle-d and @steemhunt are already doing so.

https://peatix.com/event/579871?lang=en-my

So do invite your friends who would be in Penang, Malaysia which you have a hard time explaining what steem is or would love to introduce what this blockchain all about to register and come for our little sharing session.

Looking forwards in seeing all of you in Penang on the 10th January 2019

A Christmas to Remember

Hey … Christmas is here and I wish this was a real Lambo ! However this is what my son got for Christmas .. lol .. who knows it could be the real thing in a few years time.

I’m blessed that we were able to celebrate christmas with the family every year and its something which I normally look forward to.

This year , it was even more memorable as we had great friends to celebrate Christmas with as well. And its a good reason to take the opportunity to indulge ourselves with some mouth watering foods.

There were a lot of “trials and error” in making some of these dishes however it sure was a good

Looking at the sunset on Christmas eve .. truly is a memorable Christmas Celebration with Family and Friends.
