Facebook

My Facebook is really boring. All I see are photos of dishes, latte, political news clips, motivational clips, more political news, food food food. It's like a newspaper with advertisement. And I only have 30 friends in my list - these are close friends and yet all I see are things I can get from CNN, malaysiakini, etc. I begin to think that FB has become pointless as more and more people are concerned of privacy and became paranoid. They share less personal stuff. I'm guilty of this too. If all I see are gloom and doom news, I don't really see the point of FB anymore. The hype has died in less than, what? 4 years? Maybe 5? Farewell!

William Yu

The abduction of William Yu and the warning by the police that there is a syndicate that targets young kids disturbed me to no ends. Malaysia is really not a safe place to stay. And I gets paranoid and became very afraid for my daughters. I really need to get out of this place, not because I hate Malaysia; I'm indifferent and those politics doesn't bother me; but for my children's safety and education, I may not have a choice!

Kindle

I love Kindle on iPad. I've been reading a lot since it is so convenient. And it syncs where I left off across devices so I could read on the iPhone during lunch. And books in Kindle are much cheaper than physical books in mph or kinokujiya. The other thing I like is the ability to read in the dark, adjustable font sizes for old man like me and ability to highlight paragraphs, dictionary on the fly and sharing of great phrases via Facebook or Twitter. Isn't these great?

Certain Kindle books I owned like The Hobbit 75th Anniversary and the 22/11/63 by Stephen King has multimedia content. In The Hobbit, the recording of Tolkien reading poems can be played. And all those special hand drawn maps are shown in beautiful pixels. It cost only us$6! Where else can you get this except from amazon?

Over the past two years, my library has grown <3
