Life's good.

When you have a good book to read and you might be in a busy and noisy place, you still get lost into Mid-World. It's just so wonderful. A physical book beats an eBook, if your eye sight permits. But, the weight is an inconvenience. Ah, one can't have everything, I guess.

Spotify 2022 Wrapped

Apple Watch Charger

This is the other cute thing I bought .. I think less than MYR10 but it can be used for Apple Watch charging. What I like is that it looks like a Mac SE. Nostalgic. It house your existing charger cable and cleverly hide it just behind the fake screen. You slipped in the Watch from the top and it magnetically clasps onto the charger. The cables are cleverly hidden too. Comes in a few colour, but beige is the most authentic.

Stephen King Hodder

Recently, I am obsessed to collect certain Stephen King's books. Specifically, I want to buy those from publisher Hodder. This is my current collection. I bought the Dark Tower set box for a really cheap price of MYR180 from Shopee . This is truly a bargain, and if you are a King fan, you don't want to miss this deal. The shipping from China, via ship, is just a measly MYR1.50.  What I am looking for is 'Salem Lot and The Shinning. Ah, if you know of any place to buy these two books, please help me with my collection. I even put a review in Shopee: When I was considering whether to buy these books, I'm concerned about the quality. I imagine it must be printed in China or, just like India, the version sold in-country is made up of really poor quality. I took a gamble and bought it. I see that the quality of the books are as good as those you can purchase from Popular or mph in Malaysia. From the covers of each book, I noted that they are printed in UK by Clays Pvt Ltd.  

Blog client

One of the reasons for the lack of blogging is really the lack of a good, native iOS client for . I can use Safari but it's not that intuitive and nice. I realise I could use a Drafts action to "mail to Blogger". That way, I can use Drafts as the native note taking client and mail it to . This is my example post. Sent from my iPhone

1.5 Years!

 Just realised that my last post was 1.5 years ago! I’m here but I’m just swamped with work once we are all back to office. What happened in this past 1.5 years? Tons! On the nerdy, Apple fan front, I’ve changed to a iPhone 13 Pro, my company issued me a MacBook Pro 16” with M1 Pro chip! I bought a nice Sound Blaster Katana X to listen to music (it’s superb!!). Malaysia have a new PM10 in Anwar Ibrahim. The children are growing. Job still suck although that work-issued Mac is really nice.  Most important - everyone is still healthy.  Hope you have a good 1.5 years too. I should blog more!

How I use Drafts

After a purposeful 2 weeks of using Agile Tortoise's  Drafts , I think I am slowly understanding this tool, and here is how I am using it. How As advertised, Drafts is where text starts. So, you MUST put Drafts in the iPhone dock . When you have any thoughts, you start entering them into Drafts, so the app has to be within reach, fast. The Apple Watch dictation , or dictate through iPhone is a powerful way to capture thoughts. Start by putting the Drafts widget on the Home screen so that you can tap the microphone and start dictation. Similarly, put Drafts complication on each watch face. Drafts is for short notes , NOT long-form writing. Make it a point to review  your notes and act on them. I probably need to learn basic Markdown e.g. Header and subheader Act Here comes the second part. Act on your drafts. That means, having a mindset that Drafts is your temporary text storage place . You need to act on them by moving the text somewhere. I put my daily musings into Drafts, tag th
